Designing and Teaming on the Outside: Extending PT3 Efforts across Campus, across Five Districts, and across the State
Computers in the Schools Volume 21, Number 1, ISSN 0738-0569
Brigham Young University and its collaborative partners throughout Utah recognize that effectively "integrating technology" into pre-service programs and ultimately into K-12 classrooms requires rethinking both the potentials of technology and the programs themselves. And this rethinking needs to be done together. BYU (both School of Education and cross-campus faculty), five surrounding school districts, and the State Office of Education have a history of partnershipping, much but not all of which has been positive and productive. With receipt of a PT3 grant, these groups have undertaken a series of activities and projects to promote collaborative re-searching, rethinking and re-creating. This article traces some of the highlights of this experience and examines results. The author describes a memorable meeting that revealed closeness in goals and distance in understanding of these so-called partners, along with a pivotal series of workshops that revealed what can be accomplished when understanding is achieved. A 44-person trip to a technology conference in Las Vegas was a culminating activity for the renewed and rededicated partners; the author describes both personal and organizational aspects of this undertaking, along with its far-reaching results. A final section presents a series of benefits and accomplishments that have resulted from these collaborative rethinking activities.
