Purpose: In an age of ubiquitous technology, how do we use technology to drive powerful learning experiences? The purpose of this workshop is to deeply engage educators in an examination and application of Digital Promise’s Powerful Learning principles (Personal and Accessible, Authentic and Challenging, Collaborative, and Connected, and Inquisitive and Reflective). These principles, grounded in decades of learning sciences research, guide the design of learning experiences that contribute to closing the digital learning gap. This session will provide educators with concrete examples of higher-order technology use and support them in the design of a powerful, learner-centered experience. This session will also provide educators with three tools to scaffold their lesson planning and support reflection and continual growth when they return to the classroom.
Objective: As a result of this session, participants will be able to design learning experiences that are personal and accessible, collaborative and connected, authentic and challenging, and inquisitive and reflective.
