In Conclusion, No Conclusion

In the end, very little of the day was applicable to my current professional work. As a summer program that moves into host campuses for seven weeks, we don't get to set up a building, or train the teachers to use tablets or Blackboard. Nor, for that matter, can we train the students in the short time we have with them. Many of our classes teach with something like the Harkness Table model, but resources and the nature of the program keep technology largely out of that side of it. Like many schools, we can't swing the pervasive computing environment that Rocky Hill has managed.

I think that technology in our classroom will remain on a class-by-class basis for now. I do wonder whether we couldn't use wikis to help in curriculum development, but that's another topic entirely.
