      • Addressing the Needs of Mobile Student Populations

        Academic continuity is frequently hampered by natural disaster, household disruption, worker migration, and a host of other issues. For many students facing these issues, school remains the one constant in their lives. How can we better serve stdents in this context? What tools and resouces can we bring to bear to encourage academic success for students facing these issues?

        • Accelerating student learning through transformational uses of technology

          Bernajean Porter's work speaks to the issues in education today. Technology is going to accelerate whatever pedogogy is currently in use in the classroom. So before we decorate the instruction up with lots of technology it is important to rethink the instructional practices.

            • Intrinsically creative educational spirit without limitations

              How awesome is an education focused on creative critical questioning & thinking skills that drive knowledge acquisition using all readily available technologies. Education can be an intrinsically creative spirit within our population without the limitations of a single building.
              There’s no substitute for a leader’s enthusiasm when motivating an audience. The presentation of excitement about a subject hooks anyone’s attention & drives them to want to know more. What child isn’t willing to learn the rules of any game (subject) in order to play? Embedded learning has the participants pushing themselves.
              Greedily I want all forms of knowledge acquisition in…

              • KnowledgeWorks Foundation and Pew Internet & American Life Project Team-Up

                KnowledgeWorks Foundation and Pew Internet & American Life Project team-up to share trend analysis reflected in their respective research- 2020 Forecast: Creating the Future of Learning and the Future of the Internet III. What can we learn today from trends, indicators, and driver of change? What do edge thinkers believe that the year 2020 holds for us? Moreover, what actions can be taken today to prepare learners for their future?

                (I have not contacted either organization nor am I affiliated with either organzation. This is just my idea and would welcome this discussion.)

                • Best practices for integrating technology into classrooms on a school-wide or district-wide level

                  What is the best way, really, to integrate technology in our students' curriculum? Hold teachers accountable for using technology in their assignments at the administrative level? A district-wide mandate? Or requiring students to take computer classes as a part of their matriculation? What works? What is ideal? What processes or steps should a technology coordinator engage in to see that learning with technology happens for students throughout the whole school or district? I am looking for a speaker to offer suggestions for best practices or proven models of technology use/technology integration SCHOOL or DISTRICT-wide (we need more than what works…

                    What importance doe the current administration place on the integration of technology in instruction? Why does it continue to not be a funding priority? What can we do to turn the tide?

                      • Using Second Life as an Environment for Creativity Training

                        Since creativity, collaboration, and communication are such key 21st Century skills, I would like to see more adoption of Second Life as an environment for nurturing these skills. I've seen firsthand the impact of limitless building supplies and a platform for problem creation and solution.

                            Using technology tools to provide a platform for student voice. Marco Torres would be a fantastic choice to speak about reaching every student and providing opportunities for students to collaborate and communicate with a global audience. Embracing culture and connecting communities is essential for 21st century students!

                              How doe writing online (specifically) blogging shape or alter the writer's voice and identity. Because blogging is a unique genre, with its own conventions, it requires that the writer tailor his/her voice and, therefore, changes his identity.

                                    ISTE & its members are all about effective teaching & learning. K. Cator, Yong Zhao or Ken Robinson, as examples, have key and important messages about the direction of learning in a global perspective. It is important for conference attendees to think in the largest possible terms. Technology, as we all understand, facilitates expressions of this creativity.

                                    • Writing grants to get the technology tools in our students hands

                                      Some educators are ready to jump on the technology band wagon and are excited about infusing 21st century tools into their curriculum. The problem? The school district doesn't have the tools available. Who do we go to with grant proposals? What do I need to include in my grant proposal to draw attention? Where do I start?
