Using Technology to Transform learning

@mcleod: Using technology to transform learning | @njsauers http://t.co/rz0C1IxaTI #edtech

On Mon­day I hosted a webi­nar for the Uni­ver­sity of Kentucky’s Next Gen­er­a­tion Lead­er­ship Acad­emy. Tracy Watan­abe led the one hour ses­sion which was titled Using Tech­nol­ogy to Trans­form Learn­ing. You can view the entire ses­sion here. I had the oppor­tu­nity to meet and work with Tracy and her col­league Jon Castel­hano a few years ago prior to their imple­men­ta­tion of a 1:1 pro­gram. Since that time, I’ve mon­i­tored their tran­si­tion from afar and have been very impressed with the changes that have taken place. The webi­nar was a great way for me to learn about many of the things they have put in place to max­i­mize the results of their 1:1 pro­gram. Below I’ve described some of the major things that stood out from Tracy’s pre­sen­ta­tion. How­ever, I’d still encour­age you to take the time to lis­ten and learn from the webi­nar yourself.
