"Today's students are empowered with more tools & opportunities than any previous generation." Learning Transformed @thomascmurrayedu @esheninger #LT8keys Technology - creating digital graphics, videography & iPhone/iPadography, blogging & vlogging, recordable interactive whiteboards, & digital storytelling provided the media necessary to bring learning to mind & to life in my classroom. 👩‍💻👩‍🏫 Those elements help me transform learning for districts & schools across the country. To tap into the power of technology, we have to move beyond efficiency & ease of use. 💻 My litmus test for pedagogical strategy is 2-fold 1) does it more deeply engage the learner or offer ways not possible without 2) does it enhance demonstration opportunities for the learner, allowing for a more robust & rich experience? Technology provides opportunities to more fully assess understanding & progress.📱 Thanks to devices replete with built-in features like camera/video, voice recorder, interactive whiteboard/drawing tools, & a word processor, gathering evidence of learning is now innate to the daily process 🎛 This in-the-moment documentation of learning allows for real-time, authentic feedback amplifying pace, motivation, integrity, and longevity of learning. To put it simply: 📣 When we capture our moments of discovery, we can better tell our stories of learning 📣 Looking for a few ideas to spark a learning story? Learners can • take photos or screenshots of work at varying intervals 📸 -- focus on the process, not just the end-product • record audio notes 🎧 of small group discussions • capture screencasts 🖥 of their brainstorms • video practice runs Transformative experience lies within collaboration. Learning is meant to be a communal experience, shared & interacted by others. Shared environments provide students with an accessible platform to exchange ideas & jigsaw their processes to elevate collaboration & increase perspective. 📊 These shared environments become anthologies of learning, showcasing diverse opinions, multiple variations of solutions, & insight into techniques. Learning is the product. Story is the process. Technology is the publisher. 🖨

EDUCATORS: TITLES don’t make leaders. ACTIONS do. Some of the greatest SCHOOL LEADERS are those teaching in classrooms every day & those that are part of a support staff. A title doesn’t mean one’s effective. His/Her actions determine it. #FutureReady #LT8Keys #LeadershipMinute

Talk about great use of whiteboard and wall space in your classroom. This @EKD_Elementary 3rd grade math teacher had groups answering the same rounding problems in different colors (for each group) after which they all gathered around to hear from their peers how they solved them #leadered #LT8Keys #education
