The slides for my presentation at the 2013 CORE Teacher Academy in McAllen, Texas are now online:
A three-day workshop, offered as part of the MLTI 2013 Summer Institute:
To achieve transformative results in one-to-one technology initiatives, a basic office suite will not suffice. Based upon a decade of research from the Horizon Project, we can identify five software categories that must be available to students and teachers for top-tier outcomes to result. In this series of sessions, we will examine these five categories – social software, mobile resources, simulation and visualization tools, digital storytelling, and educational gaming – and learn how to use them productively across all subject areas. We will see how to integrate them into SAMR- and TPCK-informed instructional designs that instantiate key 21C literacies, and fold formative assessment into the design structure. Applications will be stressed throughout, with working demos and exemplars.
