Teaching 2.0: Teams Keep Teachers and Students Plugged into Technology
Bourgeois, Michelle; Hunt, Bud
Journal of Staff Development, v32 n5 p34-37 Oct 2011
A Colorado district develops a two-year program that gives teacher teams an opportunity to learn how to use digital tools in the classroom. Called the Digital Learning Collaborative, it is built on three things about professional learning: (1) Learning takes time; (2) Learning is a social process; and (3) Learning about technology should be embedded within sound instructional practices. The basic structure of the Digital Learning Collaborative centers around school-based teams. To apply, a school team leader completes an application and identifies three to five fellow school members who are willing to commit to the two-year program. The Digital Learning Collaborative was deliberately named so that the three essential elements of the program remain at the forefront: (1) Digital; (2) Learning; and (3) Collaborative. In a learning organization, everyone should be learning. The Digital Learning Collaborative supports thoughtful and intentional learning for students and staff.
