3 Digital Tools: Thinking First  How can technology be used to help students to engage with content, create, and collaborate at EVERY curriculum level?  I get beyond the bells and whistles by questioning: What learning goals underpin our use of technology in the classroom?  Not all Web 2.0 tools are the same. Some have wonderfully intuitive systems, and others are messy. Some have clear and engaging help videos and others require that you look elsewhere for set-up notes. Most are free for educators so you can pick and choose! Rebecca Swain ACEC 2010

4 What roles do students play?  Students as readers;  Students as collaborators;  Students as creators; Rebecca Swain ACEC 2010

8 Too much choice? Rebecca Swain ACEC 2010

9 A Focus on Planning For every task I introduce to the classroom, I consider the following:  What am I trying to achieve?  Engagement, collaboration, independent achievement, creativity, a deeper understanding or something else?  What tools might I use?  What do I already know that can help me get there?  What have I seen or heard about that might provide the solution?  What do my students use in their own time?  Will I use technology or not?  How will I use them?  Will this be an in-class or at-home task (or both)?  Will it be collaborative or individual?
