Welcome to the Technology and Instruction Blog

August 14, 2006

Here we go….The journey is just beginning with the new digital age. Education in the 21st century is so different than where we have been. All of us are on our own personal journeys, and each of us are at our own level of confidence with technology.

We can think about technology in three ways. The technology that we teachers use for our own productivity, the tools we use to teach and deliver instruction; and the technology we use to enhance the engagement for our students by getting it in the hands of the students.

Consider this question. At what level of engagement would you like to see your students attack a project? What do you need to achieve your goals with your students? Is it important to speak their language, technologically speaking?

If you are interested in ideas, or have ideas to share in terms of technology integration, you have found the right place.

This is the time for us to embrace our resources and put our heads together. This is a forum for ideas to share, converse and maintain the conversation of this age of technology.

Is this technology integration disruptive? Yes, but I learned a long time ago that disequillibrium is necessary in order to grow. There is so much happening in the world of educational technology. We are gaining the tools we need to grow in the digital age.  We just need the collabrative know-how to spread the word and embrace it!

 I am so looking forward to working with you all to push forward and increase student achievement through differentiated technology integration. 

Wow!  Here we go…..
