Welcome 2014-2015 WIRED Teacher Hack.
Today our focus was about the soft skill students need to be successful in the 21st Century. We also examined the use of technology through the lens of the SAMR Model and TPACK context of knowledge. We spent the better part of the morning looking at uses for a variety of presentation software beyond Keynote and PowerPoint. We examined the purpose behind each and how you can use them in conjunction with other programs as well. Secondly, we focused on bookmarking and annotating programs that are readily available [see handout] and how we can use them to for collaborative or independent research. Teachers shared a variety of examples, so check out our posts from the lesson today.
