The Power of Collective Intelligence Part 2

On Friday I will be presenting and facilitating at Arrowhead Union High School District in Hartland, Wisconsin.  Many 21st century assessment topics and web 2.0 literacy tools will be introduced to engage and motivate educators and students, while identifying key student outcomes matched with the right learning tools to document student and educator technology proficiency.  One of the tools that I will introduce to this school district is Wiffitti: http://wiffiti.com/  a unique and powerful mobile backchannel chat to capture the learning essence of the day's events and hands-on technology sessions throughout the school building in multiple sessions at one time. This backchannel chat will provide the opportunity to showcase the "the power of collective intelligence" within a school district environment, but also note how- and when others are invited in from outside the "bricks and sticks" of the school walls, the global literacy perspective of the virtual world professionals can also contribute to the collective intelligence as a larger community.

Please feel free to join in on the educational backchannel chat to share your expertise from a global community perspective and to be part of our teaching and learning day virtually! Access the weblink at http://wiffiti.com/screens/39752 or feel free to text @wif39752 + your message to 87884  See flash image preview below for real-time updates as well.  Thanks or sharing your global voice with us and your expertise!



Another backchannel chat we will tap into to document the educator's progression of learning will be the tool of TodaysMeet. Our live chat will take place at http://todaysmeet.com/ArrowheadUnion with a Twitter hashtag of #ArrowheadUnion

2017 Beginning of the New Year: A Learning Discovery Escapade

The holiday break was very well needed and appreciated, and allowed for me to personally and professionally take a break from my education strategist job and relax with some amazing educational research articles to read- as they have been sitting on the back burner for a few months. Some topics of interest that have caught my interest and full attention is the most recent case studies on our student learning population of Generation Z. Yes, these are the kiddos born from 1995 -2010, and these are the young adults now entering the majestic years of college for the first time or are deeply engaged in a full-time job as their new career.


Did you now that these Gen Z students are completely different than Gen Y? Yet many of our k12 educators, and university professors are still teaching to the knowledge base of Gen Y, and have not caught up to the new learning needs and student interest of this dynamic population. Everything they are learning is through a multi-sensory and multi touch inte…

SchoolNet South Africa Conference Reflections

Well....I am back, back after being gone for a week of travel and presenting in Bloemfontein, South Africa to present at the national SchoolNet SA Conference. I was thrilled to be asked back for the third time by good friends Gerald Roos and Janet Thomson from School Net.

It is always an adventurous journey to travel to South Africa, as there is no direct flight of how to get there- but the longest part of the journey is the flight from Atlanta, Georgio to Johannesburg, South Africa of 17 hours. The total air travel and airport exchanges take about 24-30 hours one way.  So.... yes I am one tired girl today, but I have a few days to catch up on my sleep and acclimate back to the 7 hour time change.




Upon my arrival to the Bloemfontein, South Africa I was greeted by the most lovely Janet Thomson, Executive Director of SchoolNet, who assisted me with my transportation to the hotel we would be staying at, and to also preview the venue of the conference location. This year's conference wa…

Reenergize and Refocus This Summer- Change Your Mindset!

It has been a whirlwind of a month already and it is only June 3rd. It has been an amazing week working with my Intel family in Phoenix, AZ. The experience to design, create and contribute to the greater good of the future of education has filled my edtech bucket. I am so very thankful and grateful to Vanessa Jones, Theresa Maves, Anne Batey, the entire Big Monocol team and Lars Lindstrom's video crew as a collaborative team we worked on an incredible upcoming video segment to support a game-infused learning series of online coursework. Cannot share any more at this time- but this content will be a game-changer of how we deliver ongoing professional development in the education world. 
Working with inspired educators and incredible talented videographers has truly grounded me again this week, knowing that there are individuals in the edtech industry that constantly give 200%, never complain and contribute to a finalized product that will impact so many in so many countries worldwi…
