icebreaker & door prizes before signing, have to introduce yourself 1 pt for signature, 1 pt for knowing district & role
Expectation is that you will create a deliverable to share with colleagues in your school/district & with others through School Net Form for submitting deliverable is on the wiki
During video, talk with your team about how you will share with your school/district Take a few moments to create a structure to organize that sharing Determine roles for today - note-taking, etc. Are you going to create a website? collaborative notes? a presentation? lesson plans? a workshop?
video - penguins & rope
Shift tech use from teacher-centered to student-driven What percentage of teachers in your building are using technology at each of these levels?
goal for today isn’t to add new tools to your toolbox goal is to redefine student learning & professional learning
5 min table talk - Choose a different task & brainstorm for each level Examples of tasks at each level Focus on learning tasks, not tools Keep this framework in mind as you learn about new applications for online learning spaces today
Make 1 or 2 statements, then ask participants to share their own swimming analogies. Ask folks to tweet them. You have to be comfortable wading in the water before you can swim in the deep end Teachers will drown if they try to go into the deep end too quickly. How can we help teachers wade in the shallow end? We must help teachers see the purpose of swimming in the deep end before helping them get there. Some teachers may dive off the diving board while others need swimming lessons and floaties for a while. All teachers in the deep end need a lifeguard close by. Is that you?
15 minutes Have every table number off 2 to however many tables there are Each table select a recorder Each table fill in a row on all 4 tabs in this Google Spreadsheet
partners brainstorm another professional learning task & take it through the 4 levels
Don’t wear yourself out by constantly treading water in the deep end. Sometimes, you can stand up and breathe. Some technologies can be used to simply help us be more efficient with teaching and administrative tasks. Not every use of technology in our schools has to be redefining learning. Learning can even happen around the edges of the pool! When we’re in the pool, students can’t be on the edges cheering us on. They need to be in the pool with us.
Reflect via Twitter. Use twijector to display tweets. Where do you, your students, & your teachers spend the most time? shallow end or deep end What are your next steps to move toward deeper, more meaningful uses of technology that redefine what’s possible in our schools?

TECHNOLOGY IS A TOOL,
NOT THE OUTCOME
CHOOSING TOOLS FOR TASKS
1. What content do students need to learn?
2. What teaching and learning experiences can help
them learn it?
3. How can technology help me redefine those teaching
and learning experiences?
