Learning Task - Due April 4

Questions to ponder and then to craft a respond. For our next meeting select one of the question sets below and create a response using a social media or technology tool that you have not used before. I have listed some suggestions for tools below please contact me if you want some help learning how to use one of them.
  1. What does my current pedagogy look like? What does it look like when I am teaching with technology? How might it look in my one-to-one classroom?
  2. What are my curriculum planning practices? How do they reflect the integration of learning technologies? How might they need to change to reflect learning and teaching with 1-to-1?
  3. What are my assessment practices? How do they reflect the integration of technology? How might they need to change to reflect learning and teaching with 1-to-1?
  4. What learning and teaching strategies to I currently use to support the development of higher-order thinking? How might they need to change to reflect learning and teaching with 1-to-1?
  5. What differentiation strategies do I currently use. How do they reflect the integration of technology? How might they need to change to reflect learning and teaching with 1-to-1?
  6. What existing learning and teaching resources do I have (right now!) which I use regularly and will readily support a 1-1 environment? What existing learning and resources am I aware of (but not using regularly) that can support a 1-to-1 environment?
  7. What processes for permissions and protocols for intellectual property including copyright, and safe and responsible use of the internet are in place and followed across the school? How might these be updated to reflect 1-to-1 learning?
  8. How can we keep students and parents informed of new processes?
