  5. 5. Why focus on culture? • Teacher beliefs, social dynamics, and institutional culture play a critical role in shaping how teachers integrate technology into their classroom practices (Windshitl & Sahl, 2002; Cuban, 2018) • Valued qualities and dispositions (e.g., curiosity, collaboration, creativity, critical and reflective thinking) are learned through immersion in a culture that creates a “story of learning” (Ritchhart, 2015)
  6. 6. Think, Talk, Share What general elements make up any culture (in our case, in the context of a school or library)?

  11. 11. PDI Planning Triangle Three questions can guide efforts to intentionally teach toward a culture that values all four sets of personal digital inquiry practices while paving the way for self-directed learners of any age to have voice, choice, and agency in their learning.
  12. 12. PDI Triangle: Classroom Culture • How does my use of time, language, and modeling communicate expectations that students will grow to be curious, thoughtful, and self-directed learners? • How do I orchestrate the space, routines, and interactions in my classroom in ways that provide opportunities for students to wonder & discover, collaborate & discussion, create & take action, and analyze & reflect?
  13. 13. PDI Triangle: Teaching with Intent • What engaging activities do I use to build foundational understanding and deepen learning? • What questions are posed to foster curiosity, discussion, critical thinking ,and reflection? • What feedback do students receive about their in-process thinking and work products?
  14. 14. PDI Triangle: Learning with Intent • How are learners actively building new knowledge and deepening their understanding of themselves and the world around them? • How are learners putting their knowledge into action?
  15. 15. PDI Planning Triangle As teaching practices continue to evolve, the ultimate goal is to build a strong culture of inquiry and intentionally work toward cultivating PDI practices that develop individuals’ knowledge and facilitate their learning with intent.

  17. 17. Imagine one of these learning environments… • What does it look like or sound like? • How does it make you feel? • What is valued and how do you know? • What are students doing and how do they interact with peers and adults? • What do students and visitors remember most when they step out of this space into the real world? As teaching practices continue to evolve, the ultimate goal is to build a strong culture of inquiry and intentionally work toward cultivating PDI practices that develop individuals’ knowledge and facilitate their learning with intent.
