#WhatWeWrite

This is how Rookies at NTH@C celebrated National Day on Writing 2012 on Friday, October 19, 2012. We still have much more conferencing and revising to do, but I cannot wait to see the publishing and celebrations of their writing!

Envisioning the Future of Education Technology Infographic

You all know my obsession with infographics.

I know the title is about education technology, but I am finding the change in pedagogy so intrinsically connected to these technologies that it’s difficult to plan on transforming education without integrating pedagogical evolution responsive to these technologies. We discussed this for 4 wonderful hours on Friday while planning what NTH@C will become.

Exciting? Yes. Inspirational? Yes. Daunting? A little. Necessary? Well, to remain relevent and mearningful and adaptive and worthy. Yes.

I would say that Virtual/Physical Studios is defintely an area for growth, but perhaps, the bond program can help with that. Gamification is perhaps closer than we think with powerful curriculum on the horizon (and a pesky facilitator who likes to write grants).

And I want to open up disintermediation. What does that look like? What does that feel like? Can I get some help with that?

The future is NOW. 

 

Student Poetry as Pedagogy

Wow!! Again. Again. Dr. Ernest Morrell has done it again. He has forced me to recoginize what I believe in, what I am passionate about, what I am here to do. I will not allow critical hope to wane. I matter because of my work. Do you have the answer?

Which Came First, the Lesson Plan or the App

While there seems to be an app for just about everything you can think of, exactly how might one go about effectively using them in their classroom. Technology integration is not only about the app but also about the intentional design that goes into crafting the lesson. So which came first the lesson plan or the app? – you decide.    — For more information – specifically explanations about specific apps – visit Three Teachers Talk.
