In this session, participants will learn about a collaborative project between Plymouth State University and a local elementary school. Through the authentic use of technology tools, eight Elementary Education teacher candidates designed personalized instruction that redefined K-6 student learning experiences. Within the practicum setting, the practicum coordinator used an embedded professional development model for shared learning. This sustainable project empowered 8 teacher candidates, 4 multi-age classroom teachers, and 65 elementary students. This project supported mentor teachers as they engaged with the tools and digital tasks alongside their students. This project allowed teacher candidates to meaningfully engage with New Hampshire K-6 student competencies. Because the practicum coordinator was embedded in the elementary school with the teacher candidates, hands-on support and feedback was provided immediately to ensure the development of teaching and learning strategies. At the conclusion of this project, a carefully selected multi-age team was put in place to continue exploration of creative applications at the elementary level and OERs will be shared with local and international educational networks.
