Research and practice indicate that efforts to integrate technology successfully into education must go beyond slapping a netbook on top of a textbook. Successful strategic planning must also include looking at how time can be used differently to improve teaching, learning, and student outcomes.
The Alliance for Excellent Education held a webinar on May 24 featuring educators who have seen technology change the use of time in teaching. Jon Bergmann from the Joseph Sears school explained how a “flipped classroom” is making a difference for student learning. Leslie Fetzer, the 2012 SREB/iNACOL National Online Teacher of the Year, provided insight on being an online teacher and how her job has become one that keeps her busy 24/7. Participants also heard about how many afterschool programs are turning to technology to increase student engagement and outcomes, and heard about one school that is seeing unexpected results. The webinar addressed a wide range of ways that time can be examined differently and how digital tools can facilitate that process. Panelists also addressed questions submitted by viewers from across the country.
