The Literature behind the model



Professional development has the most impact on student
learning when its design is long term, tied to the
curriculum of the teachers involved, and collaborative.
Hiebert, Gallimore & Stigler (2002)

The design component of experiential learning for
teachers in professional development serves as a model
for them to implement in their own classrooms after they
have felt how it has enhanced their own personal
learning experience. (Loucks-Horsley, Love, Stiles, Mundry &
Hewson, 2003)






The Literature behind the model



The formation of teams of teachers that gather to create
standards based lessons while integrating technology
allows for the emergence of professionals with a higher
comfort and skill level for the application of new tools
and is an example of "a best way" to learn to use
technology. (MacKenzie, 2001)





Workshop Format





Workshop Breakdown








Sample Content - The Caribbean: A Region in Motion



What is the Caribbean? What is a Caribbean? Though there are certainly
vestiges of the indigenous presence in the region, the pre-Columbian
population was decimated within a few decades of the "discovery". Thus, the
region has been created through movement and the coming together of
peoples from all over the globe...Thus, as Haitian anthropologist Michel Rolf-
Trouillot states, "Caribbean societies are inescapably heterogenous", which
begs the question: what are the ties that bind its people and cultures?
How does the Caribbean inform our understanding of human cultural diversity?
How does it help us to understand the continuities and ruptures that evolve
through constant movement and migration? Arguing that hybridity is a key
characteristic that binds Caribbean societies and in fact constitutes Caribbean
culturess, this presentation will provide an overview of the peoples, languages,
religions, music, ideas, and movements that have occupied, developed in, and
emerged from the Caribbean...
