9 - 9:30

Introductions, stage-setting. Links for family food activity:

9:30 - 10:15

Tool #1: Wikis

Introduction to personal wiki, how to use, taking notes. (computer lab instruction)

Prompt: Out of everything you currently teach, identify at least ONE concept that students struggle with. (Note: This turns into a soft break-time)

10:15-10:45 Examples of wikis in use in different content areas (whole-group show-and-discuss)
10:45 - 11:30

Tool #2: PowerPoint (or equivalent slideware)

Examples of different models of use (linear, non-linear, media-rich, punctuated, student-created) across content areas and grade levels.

11:30 - 12:00

Explanation of 5-picture charades activity

Formation into groups, distribution of cameras

12:00 - 1:00 Lunch - during lunch, groups must shoot their 5 pictures and pass the camera to instructor or support staff
1:00 - 1:20 Sharing 5-picture charades results
1:20 - 2:15

Tool #3: Digital images & digital video

Moving from images to digital video (computer lab instruction)

2:15 - 2:45 Digital video examples across content areas (whole-group show-and-discuss)
2:45 - 3:00 Discussion, stage-setting for next day. Show the toolbox?
  Homework: Look back at your answer to the prompt from this morning. Which technology do you think you might be able to use to best address this concept? How would you teach this? (Note: Keep the computer lab open so people can complete this before leaving)




Friday, 26 Sep 
9:00 - 9:20 Review of yesterday's technical learning, identifying follow-up resources. (Reference or introduce toolbox?)
9:20 - 10:00

Shifting from technology to pedagogy:

  • Discussing examples of thoughts for applying technology (and instructional strategies) to students' learning
  • Value of multiple representations, multiple modalities
  • Teacher-centered use, student-centered use
10:00 - 11:30

Introduce TPCK framework

Small group work by (grade level, content area, department, ...?) to discuss


  • Options for targeting content, pedagogical strategies, and technology,
  • Level of coordination / support within the group, and
  • Technical questions / requests for help, support, or resources
(Again, there is breaktime available here for groups to take as needed.)
11:30 - 12:00 Report back to whole group (or larger group -- for example, all elementary teachers, all secondary, all Learning Center). Introduction of aggregation tool (email, wiki, blog...any CMS options available?)
12:00 - 1:00 Lunch. During lunch, small groups are required to post a summary to aggregation tool.
1:00 - 1:45 Discussion of handling challenges of tech: learning new tools, implementing them in your classroom, having a backup plan, conducting classroom management. Where to turn for help, knowing when to quit.
1:45 - 2:30 Logistics: Who will have access to what, when? How will resources be shared? How will conflicts be resolved? What options exist from non-school-owned resources (i.e., teacher-owned and student-owned)? What budget constraints exist? Should grants be written? What expectations of support can teachers and students have?
2:30 - 3:00 Explaining the follow-up mechanisms (via aggregation tool introduced before lunch) Invitation to work with Lehigh's International programs.
  Homework: Make at least one post to the follow-up system. (Again, keep computer lab open so people can do this immediately if they wish.)
