What is School? Celebrating Technology and Learning

#whatisschool has been incredible over the last few weeks – it continues to grow and provide teachers with the best PD available online.

For the next 3 weeks I will be absent from #whatisschool as I am on holiday and spending some quality time with my amazing family. I will be available on Twitter throughout July and will be back hosting #whatisschool again on July 23. in the meantime Laura will have special guests joining her to lead the way. This week we have ever amazing Mark Weston joining the team to talk about celebrating technology and learning.

Whether you attended ISTE 2015 or followed the conversation on-line, if you are like me you are brimming with big ideas and strategies for upping technology use in your classroom, maybe even your district. This time of year is a great time to plan and strategise but often the pace picks up quickly leaving little time for innovation and plans fall flat. So what do you do?


This week, #whatisschool looks at digital learning and ways you can use the next month to create an innovative technology plan that will get you and your students pumped up for learning.
