Step 1: Define the role of technology in your classroom
Step 2: Teach, Model and Support Information Literacy
"...this is not just a joke. It‟s very serious, because the single biggest problem facing education today is that our Digital Immigrant instructors, who speak an outdated language (that of the pre-digital age), are struggling to teach a population that speaks an entirely new language." - Mark Prensky
"1:1 represents a move away from a 'right to an education' towards a 'right to learn,' a shift that is only made possible by the advent of new technologies to connect us to the resources and people who can help us learn." - Weblogg-ed.com
A shift in thinking...
from a goal that focuses on the delivery of something—to a goal that is about empowering our young people to leverage their innate and natural curiosity to learn whatever and whenever they need to.

"You don’t deliver learning, you inspire learning, you engage people in learing.” - Stephen Heppell,
New Media Environments, Bounemouth University
What is becoming better understood is what personal computing in the hands of learners allows. The emphasis is more about who controls the learning than about content.
The pedagogical opportunities are much more than just taking “online courses” the way we currently define them, more than just moving content online and trying to create communities around it.
It speaks to the vast potential of individualization and personalization within the learning process that are possible now but that we haven’t even begun to explore as fully as we need to.
Hold the door...
for traditional teaching.
Student learning is a balance between engaging activity and practical learning to support the engagement, creating more powerful learning than simply traditional methods of teaching, or simply inquiry.
Both methods of instruction have a place at the table, and we would do well as educational innovators to talk about that more, showing respect to those who have come before us, and adding to their knowledge instead of trying to co-opt it with only the most recent educational trends.
"Just as some of the seasoned teachers in traditional methods must move forward with us in change, we too must hold the door for traditional teaching methods and bring them in to our classrooms where appropriate to ensure that students who learn best in those ways are able to learn as well."
"...the revolution I envision is of ideas, not of technology. It consists of new understandings of specific subject domains and in new understandings of the process of learning itself. It consists of a new and much more ambitious setting of the sights of educational aspiration. "

To be literate means to have knowledge or competence. To be fluent is something a little more, it is to demonstrate mastery and to do so unconsciously and smoothly.

"Instead of thinking about buildings and budgets, we think about what learning might be possible. In doing so, it simply shifts our emphasis, and most importantly, our perspective."
teacher to teacher professional development
"It seems very clear that simply providing computers to schools is not enough to change the nature of instruction and learning.
A holistic perspective is necessary for technology (1:1) initiatives to be drivers of educational change in schools."
- Francesc Pedro
