Learning First, Technology Second Professional Learning Community for District Instructional Technology Specialists
Calling all instructional technology integration specialists! You spent the year supporting everyone else’s needs; become part of a community specifically designed to support your needs as a professional developer and instructional technology expert.
Join us as we begin this journey together as a learning community to focus on a central theme, informed by our anchor text ( “L earning First, Technology Second: The Educator’s Guide to Designing Authentic Lessons ” ) : what is true student engagement, and how can we know we are impacting student outcomes with technology? Copies of the book will be provided for all participants.
In addition to providing numerous case studies, the text introduces the “Triple E Framework” ( https://www.tripleeframework.com/ ) to help measure how well technology tools are integrated into lessons to enhance and extend learning.
In the true spirit of a PLC, you, the participants, will design the year long agenda based on topics elicited from our text. The Model Schools team will facilitate the inclusion of subject matter experts as needed based on the topics selected. This program will be facilitated by a LHRIC Model Schools team with over two decades of experience in instructional technology, professional development, instructional design, and adult learning theory.
