Online PLC: Teaching And Learning With Technology

This month we will be featuring content to explore this question: How do we create cultures of learning that embrace and provide opportunities for exploring a wide range of literacies in the 21st century?

While communities and schools across the country are certainly diverse, we know that technology holds a strong presence in the lives of today’s learners. What does this mean for teaching and learning?

In this video clip, Kristin Ziemke, Carolyn Skibba, and Katie Muhtaris share perspectives on what flexible technology use can look like in the classroom. As you listen to their stories, note that they share not just their observations of what kids are doing, but also their own learning journeys with technology.

 

Reflect on your own ideas of what technology means in the life of today’s learners. Where can you start the conversation with your school communities about the impact of technology access on teaching and learning today?
