The session on Micro-Credentials was very helpful. Dr. Roome was very knowledgable.

The presentation covered a brief overview, and then allowed the participants to interact with the system.

Love technology when it works!?!

I felt Culatta had very valuable information to share.  Too bad it the sound was broken up and unable to be understood.  I felt that he had great information by sharing trends he is seeing from a larger, national lens.

Technology as a Tool to Redesign Learning: Culatta's discussion of technology in education today and significant trends hits the mark!

Of the 6 trends Culatta presented, none hit the mark so succinctly as "Truly Mobile Learning" and "Open Education."   As an avid fan of Praxis, the idea that learning should be put into practice right away to enrich said learning, I am very interested in being an agent of change for shifting current practices in support of these two trends.  I have already been a part of Culatta's suggested strategies of modeling new, best practices (creating rock stars) and then telling the stories of the models.  I will continue to employ these strategies, facilitating the development of even more "mega rock star" teachers and campuses and shouting their stories from the rooftops.

Technology as a Tool to Redesign Learning: Culatta. How the education paradign is evolving with the 21 st. century.

I am definitely drinking the so called "kook-aid" and have for years in the viewing of  mobile learning.  I would like to know how this will be modeled in order for teachers to see how they can evolve teaching methods.  The six key steps were:1. Personalized Learning 2. Competency 3.Common Sills currency 4.Feed back in near-rear time 5.Truly Mobile Learning 6.Open Education.

It was very refreshing to hear from Mr. Culatta about the changes taking place within the United States.  Changes are being implemented so that "EVERY" student can reach mastery.  This will take place with some of the following outline notes included in this body of information regarding the sessions from this morning.
