NTLS 2019

The National Leadership Technology Summit (https://ntls.info) was held in Washington DC Sept. 19-20 at the headquarters of the American Association of Colleges of Teacher Education (AACTE). As a member of the AACTE Innovation and Technology Committee I was invited to attend and participate in a strand focused on the use of Artificial Intelligence in Teacher Education.

I was also asked to report on outcomes from the strand on TETC cases - program deep, program wide vs technology in a shrinking educational economy. I was able to share several outcomes including initial results of a Q Sort study conducted by myself, Arlene Borthwick, and David Rutledge to find out what teacher education faculty want edtec specialists to know.

Listed below are the outcomes shared at the 2019 NTLS meeting

IMEP STEM Technology Summit 2019

For the second year we were able to partner with the Indiana Department of Education Migrant Education Program to host the Migrant Education Program STEM Technology Summit at the NESTT Learning Labs in Ball State University's Teachers College.

This years event brought together middle school students and teachers from across the state to engage in a variety of technology rich learning opportunities. We were honored this year to have several guest speakers session leaders, including BSU Provost Dr. Susana Rivera-Mills, George Barcenas (https://www.edtechteam.com/keynotes/barcenas/), and Dr. Berry Stone. The summit also provided an opportunity for BSU teacher education candidates to plan and teach sessions with summit attendees.

One goal of the summit is to help students make connections to professions associated to the technologies they were exploring. Attendees discussed video game design while creating their virtual worlds, shared how virtual reality is being utilized in real-estate and marketing professions, and designed the down print shop materials.

Summit attendees also toured the BSU facilities like the WIPB studios and the Charles Brown Planetarium.

S.T.E.M. Learning Activities during the 2019 Summit included
  • Making Google Expeditions using 360 images & Virtual Reality
  • Creating a Virtual Worlds with CoSpaces
  • BreakoutEDU
  • Graphic Design & Print Shop
  • YouTube Storytellers and green screen video editing
  • A Maker Catapult Pentathlon Challenge
  • Green Screen Stories

Planning for next years summit has already begun! We are excited about this partnership and hope to build on each years success.

Summer EdEl Faculty Development

Throughout the summer of 2019 I led five professional development workshops with faculty from the Elementary Education Department to prepare for the implementation of an Apple iPad initiative. During each of the sessions EdEl Faculty engaged with each other and with a variety of technologies in the exploration/critical reflection of existing instructional practices with technology. Throughout the summer faculty explored different frameworks for technology integration including TPACK, SAMR and Triple E. They deconstructed lessons and reimagined them with a new lens. They also utilized the Teacher Education Technology Competencies (TETCs)

ISTE Book Chapter

I am excited to have been asked to write a chapter about leadership by editors of an upcoming book focused on building capacity for technology infusion. More details to come! Draft of the chapter is due early in the summer.

Micro-Credentialing pilot grant

During the spring semester of 2019 I applied for and was awarded a IDC grant to research the implementation of a micro-credentialing system that students and I have been developing. We plan to pilot some of the micro-credentials in edtec courses and selected elementary courses in the fall 2019 semester.

AACTE Preconference Symposium 2019

American Association for Colleges of Teacher Education Pre-conference Symposium 2019

Action Steps for Addressing the Challenge of Integrating Technology in Teacher Education

The 2019 AACTE I& T Committee Pre-conference symposium focused on bringing to gather teacher education leaders to examine the actions they can take to address the change of infusing technology within teacher education. A highlight of the symposium was a panel of experts including Gary Railsback from CAEP, Andrea Whittaker from EdTPA, and Joseph South from ISTE to discuss how EPP's should address the crosscutting themes of technology infusion. The panel, along with additional breakout sessions, provided attendees with concrete action steps for addressing the issue of program deep & program wide technology infusion. The following link is to the symposium overview presentation.
