Dan Morris - CDE Director of Educational Technology and Innovation            morris_d@cde.state.co.us

Kent Tamsen - Director of Technology and Information Services, Widefield  tamsenk@wsd3.k12.co.us  


Our Objective is to explore the Essential Question:

  • What is 21st century learning and teaching?
    • What do 21st century "engaged" learning activities look like?
    • What does a 21st century classroom look like?
    • What are the tools educators are using to create and support 21st century learning and teaching?
    • How can(how do) web 2.0 "tools" support 21st century learning?
    • How can we "model" the use of these tools as teachers and leaders for our students?
    • How do I design effective lessons/activities that engage students in 21st century skills?
    • What do 21st Century students look like?  What skills can we expect from them?  What are our minimum expectations?
