    Expensive “expert only” knowledge has evolved into free collaboratively created knowledge…
    When I was a student…
  • Reference “books” are not very interactive…
    Technology opens new doors to knowledge?
  • When I was a student…
    • Black and white moving pictures were awesome
    • I could watch but not touch 
    • Slides were cool
    • Experts had to create them
    • Generally we didn’t have access to a camera
  • Today’s Students…
    • Create / use podcasts
    • Create / use video
    • Take digital pictures (every cell phone is a digital camera field trip data collection device)
    • Tell digital stories
    • Students can do all of this if we give them access to the tools…

    Students can create their own videos and pictures to support their learning

    Frank Press
    National Academy of Sciences
  • WE CAN’T STEER AWAY FROM THE CHALLENGES
  • “We want to provide every student with the tools they need to succeed and thrive in a world that is more connected and more reliant on technology, a world where communication is instantaneous and a world that demands creativity and flexibility”
