Six Steps for Planning a Successful Project

David Grant, who guides the school's technology integration and curriculum development, has put together a six-step rubric for designing a project. He says Fading Footprints, which became a model for King and Expeditionary Learning Schools, doesn't take an entire school, or even a team of twelve, to plan and carry out; one or two teachers can tailor this one to fit their time and resources.

4 Tips For Transitioning Your Classroom To Digital Media

4 Tips For Transitioning Your Classroom To Digital Media | LIS5524: Professional Learning Network | Scoop.it

"For years you’ve taught with physical texts. You may have watched used film, downloaded the occasional computer program, and even brought students up to the smartboard for some dragging and dropping, but for the most part, your classroom has been centered around physical media. Books. Paper. Charts. Rulers. Posterboard. Maybe some magazines, newspapers, and even some pamphlets when you were feeling a little crazy and out of control."
