Some highlights from ITEC, Day 1

A few notes from my day at ITEC…

  1. Apparently Iowa State University (my new home) has the nation’s largest program preparing pre-service teachers to be online instructors, site facilitators, and/or course designers
  2. From Gordon Dahlby, Director of Curriculum and Technology, West Des Moines (IA) Community School District:
    • Thinkering spaces
    • “New teachers likely will have had experience with online learning environments. How can this be leveraged for professional development?”
    • From Dennis Harper, Generation YES:
      • “You can’t expect responsible kids if you don’t give them any responsibility.”
      • How’s your state / district doing with that NCLB requirement that all 8th graders be technology literate by December 2006?
