Example 10
Name of Session: "Obstacles to Opportunites " Challenging Assumptions about Technology Professional Development- 2007

In this session, she talks about expanding across the boundries of teaching. Changing the ways classrooms are managed and getting professional development and transferring it to the classroom. The method called Generation YES
(Youth Education Suceeding), the students would be helpers, tech teams and peer mentors and encouraging tech use. The teachers feel there is not enough time within the classrooms and teachers come back not without knowledge, but not getting the valuable teaching moments with the assistants of others( teachers and students)

Is there a lack of professional technology or do the teachers think they don't have enough time to implement in the classroom?

Professional Growth:
I would love to see more of the students assisting in the technology within the classroom and thereby I would be enabled to assist the teachers in implementation.

Peer mentoring
Provide new technology into lesson plans
Applying more student empowerment within the lessons.
