Six Hour Handicap
Technology Integration

We will watch these short clips together. (You will also have access to them here in case your team wants to refer to them during the discussion)
Please jot down interesting ideas that occur to you as you watch these videos. Then work in groups to discuss the following questions.
Choose someone who will record the team's answers on the corresponding wiki page to your table number.
1. Does the six hour handicap ring true with students or other children you have known?
2. How, in your opinion, do typical school environments cause us to tragically underestimate some student's abilities? How could it be prevented?
3. Why do you think this situational handicap shows up most often in minorities?
4. How would you define digital or technological literacy?
5. Is it more important for students to be digitally literate today than it was five years ago? Why or Why not?
6. Would a project like MOUSE be advantageous for a student that attends this school?
7. Does mastery of digital skills tie into achievement in core content areas? Explain. If not, should they?

Let's break into 5 small groups with each PLP teacher leader facilitator and discuss the following:

  3. How will you reach beyond your classroom walls to deepen understanding for yourself and students?
  4. How will you integrate a 21st Century tool into your existing curriculum/classroom?
