Dream IT

The goal of the Dream IT project is for educators to reflect and identify a problem of practice within their context, where they are able to create a transformation. Using the TPACK framework (Koehler & Mishra, 2006), educators created a plan for the implementation and execution of their problem of practice.

Divided into 4 sections, the project was broken down into:

Part 1 – Project Description – An overview of the Problem of Practice

Part 2 – Outline of Transformation – An overview of the change to be seen

Part 3 – The Total PACKage – Context, content, pedagogy, and technology

Part 4 – Project Evaluation – Ways to measure success
