As a Curriculum Coordinator with a passion for technology integration, I find myself more and more in the realm of teaching where the learners are my colleagues. As my school quickly moves towards 1:1 iPad adoption for the 2012 – 2013 school year, the need for professional development support among colleagues is becoming increasingly critical. The need for teachers to find the support they need to experience success is the focus of my final course one COETAIL project: The 21st Century is Now.
Key learning activities would help teachers to build a comfort level with their own technological understandings and skills. Through an opportunity in supported dabbling, a community of users could evolve. The final product of this project would be a thriving Professional 21st Century Learning Community established by and for teachers at my school.
