Welcome to Jahmour Lopez who is joining our Belize Literacy program team. Jahmour is currently a Manage for MOE in Belize City. Ray CimolinI from D5370 will be working with Jahmour and his team in Belize to further develop their technology and learning framework and initiatives.

Note from Sandra Gluthe from summer workshops.... We introduced TPACK to teachers as a way for thinking about how they used technology. They understood the framework and the importance of starting with curriculum. There is currently a lot of research being done on TPACK. It considers content/curriculum and pedagogy with the use of technology to support teaching and learning. Very clearly different from IT which is how technology has been viewed in some parts of the world. Could be one good place to start this fall. We also threaded the NETS standards for teachers, students, and administrators (http://www.iste.org/standards.aspx) throughout our work but didn't deal with it directly. Brad will be very familiar with this. Plus you have the Port of Spain doc you sent a few weeks ago. The three pieces (TPACK, NETS, Port of Spain report) work well together and will provide some excellent next steps.
