- Mindsets in the Classroom: Building a Culture of Success and Student Achievement in Schools by Mary Cay Ricci
We have the good fortune at AES to be a very resource rich school, especially in terms of technology. We have 1-1 devices in grades 1-12 and in addition have a large variety of other technology to support student learning. These tools provide opportunity, but none of that means anything without YOU the teacher driving innovation in your classroom and focusing on educational outcomes first.
In the article There is No App for Good Teaching, Laura Moorehead examines this idea well. At AES we promote the use of the TPACK model (created by Punya Mishra) as a way to create deep and meaningful learning experiences with technology. TPACK believes that at the heart of innovative teaching is first defining rich content, next matching it with a supportive pedagogy and then exploring what technology can provide. In these cases where content, pedagogy and tech converge we provide the types of innovative learning experiences that have the largest impact on student learning. Stay tuned for more professional development regarding TPACK coming your way soon.
