8:10 - Transforming Learning-Will Richardson
If we're serious about preparing our kids for their futures, it's not about improving schools; it's about creating "entirely different learning environments." What do we know about these environments, and how do we start moving our schools toward them in meaningful ways.

8:50 - TPACK - Sheryl Nussbaum-Beach and PLP Guest Speakers - http://snipurl.com/info-plp
TPACK is "a way of thinking about the knowledge teachers need to understand to integrate technology effectively into their classrooms (Mishra & Koehler, 2008)." Teachers who exhibit best practices with technology are "creative, flexible, and adapt ways in which they navigate the constraints, affordances, and interactions within TPACK framework. (Mishra & Koehler, 2008)." True technology integration is a thoughtful approach in which teachers understand how to relate concepts with technologies, demonstrate creative pedagogical practice, and facilitate technology use in ways to teach content and skills with a student centered approach.
