Essential Questions:
1. What does effective planning with technology look like?
2. How do we support our teachers in their planning in this digital age?
3. How might TPACK support our work?

2. Catching Up - find 2 other people with the same color candy as you, find a place to sit

9:30 - 10:10 Introducing TPACK
1. TPACK - What do you already know? (brainstorm on chart paper)
2. How does TPACK compare with our AISI model?
3. "Trying out" TPACK - what does it really mean?
4. Debrief and reflect on your understanding

10:20 - 11:00 - Activity types - planning for technology integration
PART I: Learning about Activity Types
    • Find a partner with the same subject area interest as you [math, science, literacy L-6. secondary ELA, Social Studies, Second languages]
    • Take an envelope with your subject area of choice
    • Sort the contents under the appropriate curricular headings
    • Highlight the "Example Technologies" in terms of:
      • RED - never heard of it
      • YELLOW - heard of it, never used it
      • GREEN - used it
    • Check your answers

PART II: Applying Activity Types to Lesson Planning
    • Keeping your subject area in mind, take a lesson plan in that subject area
    • **Use the sheet provided in your agenda package
      • Highlight the verbs in the outcomes
      • Look at the pedagogy within the lesson
      • Look at the Activity Types sheet provided - What type of technology is suggested for a lesson like this?
        • Adjust the lesson to incorporate technology

PART III: Critical Friends' Reflection - Return to Board Room and Critical Friends' Table (10:15ish)


1. What is needed to integrate technology effectively into our teaching beside the technology? (Set IT concerns aside)
2. What implications does this have for your AISI project currently and for future direction?
Process for Reflection:
a. Choose a leader who will open the following link: www.typewith.me
b. The leader will invite each member of the critical friends' group
c. The leader will type in the two questions
d. Each person types in their own responses - you will see each other typing
e. Import/export your final answers to each question into Microsoft Word - Save as 2 files (each question),
f. Paste each question individually into a Wordle ~ www.wordle.net
g. Debrief - each table shares their 2 "largest" ideas
