Transforming Learning: Beyond the $1,000 Pencil (Pencil part is optional)

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This workshop is based on Alan’s New York Times best selling book, “Who Owns the Learning” and a powerful new 6 step model of designing transformational learning experiences. If the answer is no to all 6 questions chances are very good that the assignment has not leveraged the power of technology.

1. Did the assignment build capacity for critical thinking on the web?
2. Did the assignment develop new lines of enquiry?
3. Are there opportunities to broaden the perspective of the conversation with authentic audiences from around the world?
4. Is there an opportunity for students to publish – across various media with capacity for continuous feedback?
5. Is there an opportunity for students to create a contribution (purposeful work)?
6. Does the assignment provide “best in the world” examples of content and skill?

Additional topics can include building collaborative classrooms, teaching students to self assess and a range of quality teacher feedback strategies.
