  • 5. Responsibility From toy to tool….

    • Technology as one of the things we use, do, explore.
    • Technology as an enabler –enabling communication, access and more.
  • 7. Responsibility
    • "Students will be—and to some extent already are—living in a world of online interactions for which they currently have few learning contexts or models," Will Richardson (p. 26) tells us:
        • Teaching students to contribute and collaborate online in ways that are both safe and appropriate requires instruction and modeling, not simply crossing our fingers and hoping for the best when they go home and do it on their own.”
    Scherer, Marge. &quot;Educational Leadership:Literacy 2.0:Perspectives / The World at Our Fingertips.&quot; ASCD Home . 25 Feb. 2009 <http://www.ascd.org/publications/educational_leadership/mar09/vol66/num06/The_World_at_Our_Fingertips.aspx>.

    • DON'T wait until you are
    • &quot;totally comfortable&quot;...
    • just take one step forward each day.
  • 43. Managing it All…
    • Let students have a limited time to &quot;play&quot; with new technologies, sites, etc BEFORE you give them tight timelines and deadlines.
  • 44.
    • Eventually one of your goals should be students self-selecting tools to use to achieve their goals....
  • 45. A couple last thoughts on managing it all… There is no failure, only attempts and unexpected outcomes.
  • 46. What is a teacher? A guide, not a guard. What is learning? A journey, not a destination. What is discovery? Questioning the answers. What is the process? Discovering ideas, not covering content. What is the goal? Open minds, not closed issues. What is the test? Being and becoming, not remembering and reviewing. What is school? Whatever we choose to make it.
