Technology Planning Month Kick-Off
This presentation connects the growth of the social web, the benefits and challenges it poses to society, the need to develop critical thinking and deep learning, and some pedagogic approaches that support student buy-in for student-centered, guided inquiry with technology. Goo.gl links go to collaborative documents within the school's Google Apps domain and are not public. After this presentation, teachers took a month to identify current uses of technology in classes, find connections between each others' work and state standards, and collaborate towards developing a technology curriculum so students are prepared for the work at each grade level.
