Sharing what I've learned comes in many forms. I've already had opportunities to share on a one on one basis. I'm talking to a colleague and something I've discovered in this module pops into the conversation. The opportunities to meet people where they are and provide the information they need at the right time is the ultimate role of the TIS. However, I've learned ways to share ideas virtually and asynchronously. I will continue adding to my Teacher Resource site, and my role on the school leadership team and Professtional Development Coordinator for the Benedum collaborative provides even more opportunities to share with our staff. As the library media specialist, I get the chance to collaborate and co-teach with several teachers in our building. This provides me yet another opportunity to integrate all I've learned into the curriculum on various levels and disciplines.
I enjoy the way this module introduces you to the ISTE standards in a hands-on, less obvious way. Anytime you can have someone explore content for themselves and teach others what they've learned, you've enabled them to reach a higher level of understanding. The use of tools such as blogs, backchannel, interactive sites like Padlet take teaching to a new level. It isn't about the technology itself; it's about using the technology as a learning tool and teaching students to collaborate and create in this technology rich culture.
The 23 Things module could be perfect for Professional Development for staff that wants to become more digitally literate. It allows them to explore the technology instead of read about it, incorporate it into what they are doing in the classroom, and pick and choose when and what order to complete the module. I can also see using this with students. I'm a huge advocate of choice and real world application in the curriculum. This would be the perfect venue.
I've learned so much through this module, but more than anything, I've grasped an example, a template for teaching/learning that will work well
