WHAT WOULD NORMAN DO? (LOOK CAREFULLY) Good lesson ideas here.-JL

"In preparing for the New England Reading Association Conference and the NYSCATE Mobile Learning Summit, I decided to change my approach. Rather than structure my presentations by tool, or by app, or even by project, I organized myself around desired student outcomes – aka. what students can actually do.
"However, before addressing that question, I asked not only WHY iPads but WHY Technology? Because….
-I want my students to communicate in complex and modern ways.
-I want my students to make their thinking visible as an alternative assessment.
-I want my students to document their thinking as they work through a process.
-I want my students to have multiple ways through which to interact with learning objects.
"What does this tangibly look like in the classroom? One English teachers asked where to even begin, so we started with a set of content-specific learning objectives."
