Challenge to Change seminar
I am in the Instructional Psychology and Technology Program – a combination of an instructional technology program and educational psychology.
I lead a team that is doing a new online masters degree in 21st century teaching and learning.
I run our 1 to 1 iPad program for those studying to be teachers. Each student is given an iPad and expected to purchase apps and use it for their classes – upon graduation they get to keep it and use in their future classroom. We at the Jeannine Rainbolt College of Education have been recognized as an Apple Distinguished Program since 2013.

Challenges in the US
Why Use Technology?
Technology for Argument
Using Adobe Spark (formerly Voice) app to have students create a persuasive argument for technology for their classroom or why someone like Steve Jobs should have been encouraged as a teen and how that changed that world.
Technology for Efficiency
Use of Explain Everything to replace interactive whiteboards like Smartboard to allow teachers to archive their lectures to be able to have students watch them over again and also help with students who are absent.
They are also using the same tool to flip their learning – assign lectures on video at home and then use class time for problem solving and collaboration.
Technology to Include
Use of Notability to model adaptive note taking. Encouraging students to take notes but review audio of the lecture to be able to add additional tools.
Use of built in Apple tools to add accessibility to books – my students make Multitouch books in my course – then they plan on how they can create them adaptively with glossary and built in assistive tools.

Where Growth is Needed
"Certamente tutti coloro che ci davano, che ci offrivano la possibilità di conoscenza, anche di cose a noi lontane, facevano un'opera didattica veramente importante.“
