A few notes from my day at ITEC…
- Apparently Iowa State University (my new home) has the nation’s largest program preparing pre-service teachers to be online instructors, site facilitators, and/or course designers
- From Gordon Dahlby, Director of Curriculum and Technology, West Des Moines (IA) Community School District:
- Thinkering spaces
- “New teachers likely will have had experience with online learning environments. How can this be leveraged for professional development?”
- "You can’t expect responsible kids if you don’t give them any responsibility.”
How’s your state / district doing with that NCLB requirement that all 8th graders be technology literate by December 2006?
