Join the International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE) and NCTE on Wednesday, September 22, 2010, for a free Web Seminar designed for instructional leaders, technology coordinators, staff developers, curriculum coordinators, literacy coaches, English teachers, and others who are working to develop rich and authentic 21st century learning experiences and curricula.
During this webinar, we will explore models, resources, and tools for collaborative instructional planning between those who know the curriculum and those who understand the unique capacities of digital technologies. To that end, we will tour the US Department of Education’s School 2.0 etoolkit website with over 700 free resources to help educators with technology integration in the classroom. We will consider the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPCK) framework and explore NCTE’s Definition of 21st Century Literacies and the NCTE 21st Century Curriculum and Assessment Framework. All the while, our goal will be to anchor the discussion in real examples of collaboration that have fostered authentic and rich English language arts pedagogies with digital media. Join us and discover resources that will help you and your school or district plan for successful technology implementation into curricula and the classroom.
