This is NOT a “how to” course, yes, I will demo & share many useful (& awesome) apps , technologies & web tools (and I hope you can share some too!) – but I will not go step by step on HOW to do this or that … the best way to learn is to PLAY & try things, not watch me show you. I am interested in getting you to think about the big picture, to expand your repertoire, to try new things, to reflect about HOW & WHY these tools can be used. How can you incorporate these tools into your teaching for the benefit to benefit the LEARNING of your students. How can you SHIFT your paradigm and move from the OLD ways to BETTER ways of teaching. This takes work, thought (CRITICAL & CREATIVE thought). Be CRITICAL .. But keep an open mind, try & think before you judge. ICT can change the way we learn & teach …indeed , it has … the teacher is key in these transformations, but if we don’t start the change, our students will turn off and go their own way.My ideas of ICT in education are based on a model, called TPACK, proposed by Matthew Koehler & PunyaMishra ….
