Over the course of our 2 days together, I would like to ensure that you leave with something practical that you can use when you return to school on Sunday. As you get to know the various participants in the course, and we work through the different ideas presented, you will have six options for your project - we will explore each idea during six (of the seven) insitute sessions, and then you will have time to delve deeper into your chosen topic during part seven. It's recommended that you work in groups, but you may work alone if you prefer. Here are the options:

1. Design a Visual

In a group, create a collection of "Presentation Zen" style slides with a quote/thought/idea from Part 1 of the workshop that resonated with you and an image from Flickr (Creative Commons licensed). You can use this slide deck when you return to school to share your learning with your colleagues or admin team.

Make sure you:

2. Design a Project

  • Use the Understanding by Design process to design a technology-rich unit that follows the Technology Design Cycle and builds student understanding of the essential 21st century skills we discussed in Part 2.
  • Share your project with the rest of the group during Saturday's afternoon session.
  • Post your project here on the wiki so everyone can benefit.

3. Create an Exemplar

  • With a project you have already designed in mind, create an exemplar with a technology tool you want to explore from Part 2 or Part 3.
  • Share your exemplar with the rest of the group during Saturday's afternoon session.
  • Post your exemplar (and accompanying project materials and rubric) here on the wiki so everyone can benefit.

4. Design a Technology Coach/Coordinator/Facilitator/Integrator Job Description

  • Using the examples from Part 4, develop a job description that meets the needs of your school.
  • Share your job description with the rest of the group during Saturday's afternoon session.
  • Post your job description here on the wiki so everyone can benefit.

5. Design or Revise a Technology Vision Statement

  • Using the examples from Part 5, develop or revise a technology vision statement that meets the needs of your school.
  • Share your vision statement with the rest of the group during Saturday's afternoon session.
  • Post your vision statement here on the wiki so everyone can benefit.

6. Design a Community Learning Plan

  • Using the examples from Part 6, design a community learning plan for parents, teachers and admin that meets the needs of your school.
  • Share your community learning plan with the rest of the group during Saturday's afternoon session.
  • Post your community learning plan here on the wiki so everyone can benefit.
