  • So, you have been asked to design and deliver a workshop for a group of 4 to 6 willing volunteers! And, of course, you want it to be successful! This short tutorial will provide you with a bit of information to help you make it a GREAT workshop!
  • Let’s take a moment to look at the anatomy of a workshop that not only teaches the tool, but allows teachers to develop the knowledge they need to visualize how to use the tool in their own classroom instruction!
  • Most technology workshops include a tool demonstration – you have probably attended one or two yourself!! These are the workshops that are designed to teach the tool. One that I attended recently was a SMART workshop where I learned all the commands for using the tool features. For most teachers, this isn’t enough to help them visualize how to use the tool in an instructional setting – in fact, they forget most of what they learned before they get a chance to use it. Having skills is not all the knowledge needed to apply technology to lesson design – there is a gap in knowledge.

  • It is similar to me saying to you – I have just taught you how to add, so what is the answer to this problem shown in the diagram? Is there knowledge missing? Yes, you do not have the context around the symbols so even though you are skilled and understand the addition process, there is a gap in your knowledge.
  • Remember that we are trying to build TPACK – Technological Pedagogical And Content Knowledge. Technological Knowledge is like a stream – dynamic, ever changing, different ideas from different sources, new tools and innovations – flowing through teacher knowledge like water through a cell! An osmosis-like process occurs that allows us to pull from technological knowledge what we need to know to be able to teach with the technology. So, by building these three areas of knowledge, teachers will leave your workshop with the knowledge to teach WITH the tools you introduced to them!

  • That’s how teachers feel about technology tools, so a good workshop begins by setting the stage and the context for the new learning by modeling a task in which the audience uses the tools for a learning purpose.

  • So, to review, a GREAT workshop starts with an essential activity that models for participants how the tool is used in instruction – yes, the participants learn with the tool so they can later teach with the tool!
  • The second activity of the workshop introduces the tool demonstration – short technical instruction that can be learned in a short period of time – think of it as just-in-time instruction!
  • And finally participants apply their new knowledge about a tool to create a form of instruction or complete a task!!
  • And THAT’S a great workshop!!
