2010 May BC ASBO Technology Powered Learning, Teaching, and Work


Published on

Through Brian’s blog, http://shift2future.com/, participants can gain some insight into aspects of his thinking about technology and education both current and future.
Drawing upon examples from current work in his District, this session will include some practical applications of, and management approaches to, IT that provide value for money opportunities. Some examples include digital processes for Cross Catchment, Class Size & Composition Consultations, Parental Consent, and District ßà School information collection and sharing. Brian will also share some stories of what educators and students are doing with technology and how Principals are leading the way.
Thinking about the future, Brian will contemplate possible ways (some radical) that IT services in a K12 environment may (should) be provided. Some topics that will be covered include mobile computing, personally owned devices, and cloud computing.
