Hello Big Picture Learning....

A new addition to Big Picture Learning is the TechGuru Blog…. a place to learn about, explore and tinker with education technology in support of student-driven learning. I am your host of this column. I hope to provide a voice for utilizing technology for the purposes of empowering students. Students expect that they be allowed to learn through the avenues that they interact with the world. That means that teachers can often be the biggest impediment to engaging education because of our fear or unfamiliarity with ‘what’s new’. I hope to provide a space for us all to experiment, innovate (fail sometimes) and learn some cool tools.

For starters, I hope to create a network of ‘Tech Champions’ from across the BPL network! If you are a Tech Champion at your school, or know someone who is, please email me at david@bigpicturelearning.org. I will add you to the invite list for our upcoming forum. Let’s share best-practices, find solutions and celebrate our successes in bringing technology fluency into BPL schools.

Perhaps it is not a coincidence that there is a renewed appreciation across the education sector for approaches that focus on student expectations. (Relationships, Relevance, Time, Timing, Play, Practice, Choice, Authenticity, Challenge and Application). There are now powerful technologies out there that enable us to meet each of these 10 expectations - as well as amazing tools to streamline and simplify our job as educators. This space will highlight emerging ed-tech and how it can help us meet student expectations.

Lastly, I am eager to support you all! I am available to problem solve, evaluate technologies you are considering, conduct one-on-one pd, or work with your whole school. Feel free to schedule a FREE online one-on-one consultation with me via my Google Helpout.

I love to lead an active lifestyle. I love golf and rowing. Sometimes web applications https://golferexpert.com/best-cold-weather-golf-ball/ help to find new technological solutions. I recently learned about golf clubs that can take aim.

You are truly a technology genius and thank you for briefing about each item with so much detailing. I also aspire to become a traveler where I could do portrait photography but before that, I need to hire someone who can Take My Class Online For Me so that I won’t have to worry about my online classes while on my expedition.

My Dissertations said...

Let's start simply by considering the main dissertation chapters and their rough length. However, before that, remember that there is no limit to words in a dissertation project. Still, a general outline of a dissertation can help you understand the length and time required to complete it. Law Dissertation Writers UK
