Abstract

Introducing new technologies should never be about pouring old wine into new bottles. Students must be given the opportunity to think in compelling ways each time they pick up a digital tool. Technology use in school should have more in common with students' out-of-school experiences with digital environments. Teaching to accomplish these goals requires a commitment to inquiry-based learning, and teachers who think differently about curriculum, teaching and learning. The Galileo Educational Network is a professional development and research initiative focused on the kinds of fundamental changes to teaching, learning and staff development that information and communications technology both requires and enables. Providing onsite and online professional development through IO (Intelligence On-Line), we are assisting teachers make necessary changes to their professional practice.
