26th Annual TIE Conference

Monday Keynote Session 8:15 - 9:30 AM Will Richardson: Learning in a Networked World: For Ourselves and for Our Students Grand Ballroom If we have access and the skills to take advantage of it, the Web gives us an easy connection to the people and the resources that we need to learn whatever we want to learn, when we want to learn it. That fact challenges the fundamental beliefs that we’ve held about schools and teaching and learning for over 100 years. As our students graduate into a fast-changing, globally networked world, what assumptions do we need to reconsider about how to best prepare them for their futures? How can each one of us begin to change our own learning practice to better model these new opportunities for our students? And what new challenges do we have to overcome to make sure the idea of school remains relevant in the networked world in which our students will live? About Will Richardson

Will Richardson was a public school educator for 22 years and is a co-founder of Powerful Learning Practice, a unique professional development program that has mentored over 3,000 teachers. Mr. Richardson has been writing about the intersection of social online learning networks and education for the past 10 years at willrichardson.com and in numerous journals and magazines, such as Ed Leadership, Education Week and English Journal. He is also a regular columnist for District Administration Magazine and a national advisory board member of the George Lucas Education Foundation. Mr. Richardson’s first book, Blogs, Wikis, Podcasts and Other Powerful Web Tools for Classrooms has sold over 80,000 copies and has impacted classroom practice around the world. He recently released his second book: Personal Learning Networks: Using the Power of Connections to Transform Education.

Tuesday Morning Keynote 8:15 - 9:30 AM Hall Davidson, Discovery Education: Not Your Father’s eBook: New Kinds of Learning Tools for New Kinds of Learners Grand Ballroom For generations, students lived with textbooks with “print DNA”: linear, undifferentiated, and nondynamic. New ‘techbooks’ arrive with cloud-based media DNA: fluid, differentiated, embedded and rich as the web. The medium itself becomes a tool for learning. Cameras, mashups and student material merge with tradition resources. Content creation becomes an integrated tool. QR codes, 3D, apps, and hardware come together in a true 21st Century resource. What’s here now, what’s coming, and why teaching and learning just got better. About Hall Davidson

Hall Davidson began teaching in 1971. He taught middle and high school English, mathematics, Spanish, and bilingual mathematics, as well as college courses on technology for teacher credential candidates. He left the classroom to teach math on television, winning an Emmy award and spending 20 years at Los Angeles area PBS stations teaching, leading staff development, and championing content creation by students and teachers. He is a frequent contributor to national education publications, co-authored TechWorks, an internationally distributed classroom technology kit, and co-founded Kitzu.org, a resource of free online kits to encourage project-based learning with media. He was elected to the board of Computer-Using Educators where he served for six years. He joined Discovery Education in 2005 where he blogs, creates webinars, and works in educational partnerships and Global Learning Initiatives as a director of the Discovery Educator Network. He has spoken about technology and education to audiences around the world.
