Used wisely, technology helps nurture creative environments where students take responsibility for their own learning. UMD Professor Ben Shneiderman provides teachers with a powerful framework, Collect-Relate-Create-Donate (CRCD) for designing student-centered learning opportunities using technology. In CRCD projects, students typically research information, work collaboratively to create a meaningful product that demonstrates their learning, and contribute that project to a larger learning community. Shneiderman designed the Collect-Relate-Create-Donate framework as a vehicle for preparing young people for a 21st century world where innovation, creativity, and collaboration will be more highly prized than retention and repetition. The session provides several examples of innovative uses of technology in ELA, social studies, and world languages classrooms and illustrates how the CRCD framework can help teachers structure and build creative activities. Examples include inquiry-based and research-oriented applications where students present their learning in multiple modalities. Join us to explore inspiring ideas and exciting projects for incorporating iPads and other technologies and learn a set of strategies to integrate iPads purposefully into the classroom.
