ThinkForward: Who Owns the Learning? Making the Case for Purpose-Driven Learning
September 28 at 12:00 PM ET/ 11:00 AM CT

Creative and altruistic things can happen when we equip students with easy-to-use digital tools. Some have been known to develop tutorials to help classmates learn. And we know that many children prefer to learn from their peers. Giving our students a sense of purpose by helping them contribute to the learning community can be one of the most powerful and effective ways to improve achievement for all students. Educators often underestimate the capacity of our students to lead and contribute to their learning communities. Participants in this session will take away a framework and toolset for integrating into any learning environment.

ThinkForward: Who Owns the Learning? Helping Teachers Let Go of the Fear
October 19 at 12:00 PM ET/ 11:00 AM CT

As ownership for learning is turned over to students, the shift that takes place in the classroom will require a great deal of support from administrators. For example, in order for teachers to take new risks, they will need encouragement to try new classroom design ideas and teaching techniques. New professional development models and a robust infrastructure will be needed to support this work. Finally, it will be important for administrators to have a way to assess the impact of these changes. Participants in this session will take away multiple techniques to help them lead a shift of culture in their schools and districts.

Mark Anderson's Blog » The iPad & Critical Pedagogy | "Tech tools for TLS" | Scoop.it
Too many posts (and I am guilty of this too) focus on, “check out this cool app”, or “did you know the iPad can do this”; you’ve all seen them. I really feel we are past the time where we should be looking at the functionality of the iPad as a device and be looking at it in a way which ensures we are looking more at how learning can be redefined and modified through the use of the iPad.
