Today I was lucky to present a session to the Allegheny Intermediate Unit Superintendents of schools. It was a two hour session that shared insights into student trends, use of technology, and their associated affordances. It was a very fun session and the discussion after it has left me with some lingering questions to explore. One question in particular that struck a chord with me was related to what my vision would be for the 9th grade classroom my duaghter walks into. That is a good 7 or so years away, so it gives ample time for change to happen. What do schedules look like, what does the use of social computing look like, how are teachers/parents/students staying connected. Big question with lots of room to think on.
