Presentation Title: Connected Learning Communities (CLC): Learning and Leading in the Digital Age

Presentation Description: Professional learning communities can engender much-needed meaningful collaboration and learning among educators — collaboration that leads to improved practice, greater student achievement and positive school reform; collaboration now further enabled by the affordances of current technologies.

As a result of this presentation participants will understand the dispositions and skills required to become self directed learners in a participatory culture, to engage in inquiry-driven learning, to share ideas and expertise in global ever-growing sustainable personal/professional learning networks as well as situated and virtual learning communities.

Presentation Title: 21st Century Learning Plato’s Way

Presentation Description: This presentation provides a snapshot of web 2.0 and games based learning which have been implemented in our school and how we have managed to achieve this across all grades Kindergarten to Year 6. We have been using these technologies for several years but it has only been in this last year that there has been a wholesale uptake of these learning resources. 96% of our students are from non English speaking backgrounds. Many of them arrive at school with impoverished language and life experiences. it is our mission to enrich their vocabulary, turn them on to reading and writing and engage them in the process of becoming critical and creative lifelong learners using technology as the tool.

Presentation Title: Slippery Rocks & Hard Places: Twelve Bridges and Learning Matters

Presentation Description: To begin, I want you to know I created a wiki that expands upon the notions I discuss in this presentation/video. If you find what I say worthy of further reflection, carry your learning beyond the boundaries of the .mov and visit tr.im/bridginggaps.

If you wonder what a “well-educated” student will look like in our constantly shifting, interconnected, globalized society; if you want to know what teachers and administrators need to know about teaching and learning in the 21st Century; if you are ready to learn about newer, more effective ways of teaching that engage, challenge and inspire students; this is the session for you. In this video I will present a vision for teaching and learning in the 21st century that is evolving as I explore the intersection of pedagogy and the digital culture. There are twelve critical bridges that span competing conditions I have experienced that we must all acknowledge, experience and understand if we are to move toward the emerging new story of learning.
