10 Technology Trends that Will Change Education (and the world)

In a world that changes daily, how are teachers, administrators and technology specialists to plan for the future of instruction? The key is not to look at headlines, breakthrough products, or fads, but to examine the greater trends which these support. This workshop will examine ten major trends in technology that will likely have impact on education.

Through discussion and sharing, we will outline possibilities, challenges, and the ways teachers and administrators can prepare for the elusive horizon of tomorrow

Beyond Cheating:  Defining and Teaching Academic Integrity for Shifting Environments
As we redefine the parameters of education, understanding of what constitutes cheating is similarly challenged.  In a world of universal access and constant communication, how do we teach students academic integrity?

It’s an iPad World, so How Do I Live (and Teach) in It?
Love it or hate it, the iPad is an enormous player in the race to 1:1 technology access.  This workshop will address the questions, concerns, and panic of teachers new to this platform by providing a tool kit of applications that can be used in the classroom on day one.  While targeted for teachers, the session will also address the training needs of administrators bringing an iPad 1:1 program into middle or high school. 

 The PowerPoint Plateau:  How We Got on It and How We Can Fly Above
Exciting first experiences of PowerPoint have been transformed to teacher drudgery and student boredom.  How did we get here?  Can we use PowerPoint more effectively?  What other options are available?

The Ethical Pirate:  How to Use Digital Resources Responsibly and Legally in the Classroom
Is this good instruction, or is it theft?  The ready access of digital content has changed the teaching profession for the better…and made it much more complicated.  This workshop will explore the murky legal realities of fair use and provide some guidelines for ethical and legal use of on-line resources for teachers and for students.  We will also explore how teachers can protect their own content.

 Finding the Time:  How to Integrate Classroom Technology Skills and Still Have a Life
“OK, I understand that we need to build a technology rich classroom, but I have papers to grade!”  This session will examine attitudes and approaches to developing necessary classroom technology skills without losing one’s balance, one’s patience, or one’s mind.

 The Technology Revolution in Schools:  The Engine that Drives the Common Core
In a world that changes daily, how are teachers, principals and technology specialists to plan for the future of instruction? The key is not to look at headlines, breakthrough products, or fads, but to examine the greater trends which these support. This workshop will examine ten major trends in technology that will likely have impact on education.

Through discussion and sharing, we will outline possibilities, challenges, and the ways teachers and administrators can prepare for the elusive horizon of tomorrow

 For Catholic or Church-based Schools

To Tech as Jesus Did:  Gospel Values for Technology Planning and Instruction
“Would Jesus Own a Mac or a PC?”  Raising students to live in our technology-rich society presents opportunities and challenges for all educators.  Catholic school administrators are further challenged to plan, implement, and use technology in ways that are faithful to their mission.  This workshop will examine the Gospel values and practical choices that can help schools to build and use technology systems that complement their Catholic identity.  Technophiles and technophobes are invited to find the face of Jesus in the world of Web 2.0.

Digital Media and the New Evangelization: Choking the Weeds with Wheat
 Digital and social media are the tools of our time, the language of our age.  If we are to be faithful to the task of evangelization in our time, then we must speak this language with understanding and confidence.  This workshop will discuss how we can use digital media tools effectively while we model and teach this to young people.
