The first question @djakes - 2 views

  •  
    This is my first question if I know every kid has a device: "What should the student learning experience be?" That's a question that can be addressed through design. And like any design provocation, you begin by deeply understanding the needs of humans first, in this case, the learner. And then you make sense of that, you find what you want to design around by developing a set of design drivers (such as skills, habits of the mind, the physical and digital learning spaces, etc.) and then you ideate, ideate and ideate. Ask a second, third, fourth question … Yes … and … what if … how might we? Ask those questions. Prototype an experience, put it out there, find out what works, what doesn't, and refine and adjust. Make it better. Place the student and the learning at the center of the first question that you ask. Make it about them and what they should experience in your school as a learner. Don't make it about whether or not the device supports Shockwave.

Reading Aloud - With a few Twists | Remote Access - 16 views

  •  
    So we decided to add a backchannel to the reading. While one of us reads, the kids in both classrooms and the other teacher chat in a today's meet room, discussing the text, asking questions, making predictions and dropping in great pieces of the text as it is read aloud over skype.

The Digital Down Low: 1:1 Learning and the iPad...a few thoughts - 13 views

  •  
    Even though most students who already own a laptop own a mac, we know that others are using a range of models running everything... Because our primaryacademic learning platforms (moodle and google apps education edition) run directly through the browser we're able to take a hardware and OS nuetral approach in our 1-1 learning model. @mjmontagne calls this "being device and OS agnostic"
