My Subway Lesson Plan (or how I would have approached a recent class on technology and education)

I just made a rather bold statement to a friend in the cohort concerning a recent lecture about technology and education. Here are the fruits of my subway ride home…

Given these guiding questions (supplied by professor) and readings which serve as the springboard for questions and class discussion…

1. How do today’s adolescent learners change the expectations for teacher skills?

2. What, if any, new topics should be included in a school’s curriculum to address today’s technology?

3. What are the opportunities and weaknesses of integrating technology into the classroom?

4. What are the risks/rewards for leaders integrating technology throughout the program (including the administrative services of a school)?

5. How do you assess successful technology integration within the curriculum and school community?

6. What new skills are required of leaders in the web 2.0 world?

…I would create a class that looked like this – – –

Introduction:

Discussion of Video and Relevancy for Kling Cohort

Presentation:

  • The Power of a Personal Learning Network
  • How To Build a Personal Learning Network
  • What Tools You Should Be Using (Google Reader, Twitter, Social Networking Site (Facebook, NING, MySpace), Delicious)

*more to come…as I continue learning and formulating my answers to the questions above.
