My #ISTE2015 Topic List

Going back over my notes and Tweets during the recent ISTE Conference in Philadelphia, I highlighted a list of key learning terms that are changing the face of K-12 education and, to the extent they are finding their way into schools, are finally moving us forward:

  • Unlearning
  • Maker education (or simply maker ed)
  • Maker spaces
  • Culture of making
  • Design thinking and learning
  • Connected learning (for both the kids and the adults)
  • Global learning
  • Learning through creation versus consumption
  • Future ready
  • SAMR
  • STEM and STEAM
  • Coding
  • Online professional learning using social networking (e.g., Tweet of the Day)
  • Writing and publishing
  • Genius Hour (for both kids and the adults)
  • Putting technology in students' hands:
    • leveler
    • door opener
    • deeper learning
    • adjacent possibilities
    • student voice
    • agency
    • social justice
    • passion
    • digital citizen
    • digital leader
  • Learning is still based on relationships
