  • A Few Thoughts... • We need more thoughtful conversations and strategic planning around technology use in schools. Less focus on tools, more focus on teaching, learning and processes. • Teachers and students alike need to take more control of their own learning. • Educators must participate in learning communities in order to truly understand the dynamics and implications for students. • Students should be participating in age appropriate networks across grade levels from early grades through high school. • Schools should have a plan for providing safe networked learning opportunities for students and teachers. 53Thursday, November 3, 2011
