Tomorrow, I will be presenting at this year’s BCSSTA Conference on 21st Century Learning, and am planning to introduce my particular approaches to the use(s) of technology in the classroom with the above Prezi & access to the assembled terrain of my own, and my students’ emergent digital geography. I hope to frame the implementation of technology in the modern classroom as an opportunity to extend elements of communication and collaborative critical thinking education has always been pressed to provide its students.
But I don’t want it to be a conventional presentation so much as an opportunity to engage a specific community of educators in a conversation about establishing a digital presence that provides an authentic extension of the learning community. In short, I would like to create a digital record and extension of the conversation anyone who comes to my session wants to have.
That’s why and how I try to use technology in my class. Why wouldn’t I do it that way with my fellow educators?
I’ve set up a wiki intended to aggregate dialogue (and maybe bookmarks) our conversation through this Posterous blog, that you can submit your thoughts to if you want by emailing text, video, audio, links or the like to connectivemedia at posterous.com.
