What I hope to Learn

Of Course, you do not really have to be at the conference to learn.  This is a test of the conference’s Twitter feed.

I’m sitting here at my own workshop at NCTIES and Raleigh.  I just assigned the group to write a blog entry that shares what they hope to learn at the conference — So I should follow suit.

I am excited to know that I will have lots of time to attend sessions here and lots of great presenters to learn from.  But the main think I look to learn is stories.  I want to hear and see stories that describe what all of this looks like.  We find it easy to describe learning 2.0 in agreed-upon general terms, but these terms rarely paint the picture.  I want to see some beautiful art work at this conference.

  1. Ironically, while attending your PLN workshop I read you wanted, more than anything, to collect stories. We are here to present our school’s story (Teach21: Building Capacity) tomorrow at 10:45 at NCTIES. About 11 months ago we made the shift to teach our students how to use technology because we realize it’s not really a choice, but will become a way of life – as if it is not already – for them. The ongoing story is being recorded on our blog http://teach21bolton.blogspot.com.

  2. I was struck by your desire to hear “stories” and to see some “beautiful art.” I think these stories are so critical to the future of meaningful technology integration. I think one of the key foundational issues with technology integration isn’t the merit of our mission (I think that’s a given) but how we frame and shape our message. We need to get more people to really care. And to do that, I think we need to do a better job of appealing to the heart.

    If you’re interested, I wrote a blog post about this. The link is:


    By the way, I think your work is amazing.
