ISV Series – Day 1


It’s a pleasure to be able to work with you over the year through a series of sessions.  This is a great way to take new ideas, practice with them and try them out with students and staff, then meet again to build on those skills and insights.  We will use this is the site to access the learning materials and activities for this workshop. Note that we will meet on these dates:

Formal Introductions & De-brief

Immersion Scenario

No one has to tell us that technology is changing our culture and the lives of our students. How will it impact education?  How should what we do in schools change to best serve our purpose?  What is our purpose?

  • Presentation: Sixth Sense & Beyond?

Question: if learners have 24/7 anywhere access to information profiled just for them, what are 3 – 5 main knowledge, skills or values they will need to succeed?

Use this Stixyboard (3Rs or AGQTP) to post your ideas.
