  • We need to prepare our kids for their future, not our past.
    We as teachers, are in a position to start a reform revolution.
  • Making the shift...
    The ipad has given us the opportunity to become creators of content. Our kids are able to access information and synthesize it immediately and apply it relevantly to their world. This is powerful stuff...
    We are in a weird generation of humans...
  • • Flexible – to accommodate both current and evolving pedagogies• Future-proofed – to enable space to be re-allocated and reconfigured • Bold – to look beyond tried and tested technologies and pedagogies• Creative – to energize and inspire learners and tutors• Supportive – to develop the potential of all learners• Enterprising – to make each space capable of supporting different purposes
  • 5 Tips for the Tech Terrified Teacher
    Remember, it’s not about you! Your discomfort with technology impacts your students’ futures. Teachers need to be preparing students for the world we live in today. So many jobs are dependent on a basic understanding of technology. Always ask yourself, “am I teaching something that is obsolete, or something that will help my students in the future that lies ahead?”
    Don’t resist your tech guru teacher-friend: It is difficult to ask for help but partnering up with a tech guru teacher-friend can provide a support system that can help ease your transition from tech terrified to tech curious.
    Realize it’s okay if you are not in control: In reflection, I realize that a major reason that I resisted tech for so long is because I feared what would happen if I was no longer in control…but it is okay if the tech malfunctions. In fact it can lead to some pretty teachable moments.
    Let your students teach you something: Newsflash – if you think you are the omnipotent force in your classroom, think again! Kids know a lot these days and it can boost their confidence and engagement if you call on students for support.
    If you find a product you like, ask someone from the company to come visit – Tech startups want you to use their products so most likely if you send an email, they will answer any questions you have or maybe even come visit your school to teach you how to use their product.
  • 1.  It requires teachers to be risk takers--but based on sound educational principals.
    2.  It focuses less on content and more on process, understanding, and critical thinking about material.
    3.  It requires "old" skills (reading, writing,etc..) but develops new skills need for the changing world.
    4.  It exposes students to engaging social networking in an educational setting
    5.  It establishes and allows students to can create their own knowledge based on fact and content.
    6.  It makes learning and teaching more FUN.
    Lots of talk about the technology, but little change with how we teach with the technology.
    Our tech lab isn’t just a room that houses technology, it’s a space where people come together, create and learn. Students have the opportunity to see their teachers learn beside them.
    Students have the opportunity to teach their teachers, to solve problems and to become leaders.
  • huddle areas
    Huddle Areas More and more, students are working collaboratively, and, increasingly, universities are providing student lounge and huddle areas to accommodate both academic and social activities. These non-classroom, informal learning spaces are typically made up of discrete areas sized to accommodate about four or five students at a table, with power receptacles and connectivity to a shared large-screen flat panel display, which can be table- or wall-mounted.
    Think of a series of booths commonly found in diners, which provide a minimal separation among groups. In some cases, acoustic and visual separation may be enhanced by increasing the height of the panels between booths.
    In lounge areas in classroom buildings, libraries, and dorms, furniture is often arranged to support small workgroups. Again, power and display capabilities are often provided.
  • How do educators move into the space and assimilate?
    How does it impact teaching and learning?
    What makes a space ?
