Why? Why digital learning? That's the first question we are exploring together. Students and teacher won't listen what we do, but they will listen to why we are doing it.
Simon Sinek explored that question with his "Golden Circle" theory.
Karl Fisch and Scott McCleod talk about preparing students for jobs that don't yet exist in their "Did You Know" video. Just as our lives are even more different now than the movie Back to the Future could have predicted, our students' lives will be more different than we can now imagine.
We need to examine the "why." Why are we doing what we are doing? In our case, why digital learning?

Welcome to the 3rd year of the Mobile Learning Initiative at Pine Creek High School. This year we have iPads in the hand of roughly 75% of our students. Next year ALL of our students will have iPads. It’s a critical and exciting time for us as we pave the way to full implementation. Keep in mind that this isn’t a journey that you’re taking alone. We will walk together and discover what learning in a mobile environment looks like. As this year progresses into next we will be the leads and resources for our fellow department and staff members.
I am a Digital Learning Coach by title, but lifelong learner by practice. An Apple Teacher, Google Certified Educator and Microsoft Innovative Educator, my goal is to assist educators in investigating, exploring, and investigating resources to embed in their instruction. I also hope to be a part of their journey toward an innovative and transformative practice that empowers learners and strengthens their own craftsmanship. I spends my free time with my family, my dogs and a good cup of coffee.
