  • 22. Key Questions and Ideas• How do we use digital media to enable transformative learning experiences?• How does digital media learner participation and production of content?• How does digital media impact the distribution and sharing of information and ideas, and how does digital media shape the role of learning networks?• What evidence do we have of learning and how do we stop being “data poor” in education? (standardized testing is not quality data)
  • 23. Key Questions and Ideas• How do we help create a mindset and culture that sees education not as the end but as the beginning of a productive life?• How are the roles of teachers changing in this educational landscape (for better or worse)?• Are educational administrators and policy makers aware that skills needed for the work world are antithetical to the ones that are being privileged in our test-driven school culture?
  • 24. Key Questions and Ideas• How do we create a common language of teaching and learning in learning communities? How do we as schools–faculty, students, parents, admin–build a language of learning so that we are not wasting time and energy?• How are we addressing the school policies and practices that privilege narrow perspectives?• How do we shift conversations about learning away from training to enabling participation?

  • 30. Impact on Practice• Ongoing digital nonfiction composition and writing with students and teachers• Continued exploration and implementation of personal learning environments for students• Continued evolution of thinking about participatory and inquiry based learning• Continued work with teachers and students to grow digital and new media literacies
  • 31. Impact on Practice• Increased role in work as a learning specialist with teachers related to instructional design and assessment of student learning• Disruption of mindset that testing=learning• Networking with fellow school librarians as well as academic and public librarians (and non-librarians) pushes thinking and practice
  • 32. ongoing organic professional growth, both virtual and f2f,helps us to challenge and define what it means to “do ourjob” in meaningful, authentic, and relevant ways; withoutthis fertile soil, we become root bound and stagnant
