Tentative Schedule for the Day (*pretty much never actually happens this way)

June 6th

8:00 - 9:30 am
Shifting Literacies
Karl rants and raves for about 90 minutes (SJSD June 6 2011.ppt). This is the only part of the day where I'll be talking at you, and hopefully sharing a few thoughts that will spur some great thinking and discussion throughout the day (and beyond).
9:30 - 9:50 am
Break (and hopefully talking about something that spurred your thinking)
9:50 - 11:00 am
What does it mean to be literate in the 21st century?
We'll build off of my ranting and read a few things from some really smart folks, then discuss how literacy might be changing (in all content areas).
11:00 am - 12:00 pm.....................
Lunch (and hopefully talking about ideas from the morning)
12:00 - 1:20 pm
What should students know and be able to do?
In a world where almost all factual information is literally a click away, what's essential for our students?
1:20 - 1:40 pm
Break (and hopefully talking about some things you're going to work on over the summer)
1:40 - 2:50 pm
How do we help our students create their own personal learning networks?
In a networked world, what should school/education/learning really look like?
2:50 - 3:00 pm
