  • SMART Webinar Create. Teach. Learn. Assess: Enhancing Teaching and Accelerating Learning with Technology in 1:1 Environments
  • Webinar: Create. Teach. Learn. Assess: Enhancing Teaching and Accelerating Learning with Technology in 1:1 Environments Jason Nast Software Specialist Education Consultant SMART Technologies
  • Survey Results What percentage of your classrooms are equipped with a computer, laptop or netbook for every student? 50% 40% 30% 20% 10% 0% Less than Over 75% of 10%-25% 26%-49% 50%-75% 10% classrooms Series1 44% 16% 9% 7% 20%
  • Webinar: Create. Teach. Learn. Assess: Enhancing Teaching and Accelerating Learning with Technology in 1:1 Environments Mark Hess Principal Walled Lake Consolidated Schools Sarah Banks Middle School, Walled Lake, Michigan Amy Rothenberg Teacher Lee County Public School District Fort Myers Middle Academy, Fort Myers, Florida Andrew Alphin Teacher Wilson County Schools Hunt High School, Wilson, North Carolina
  • Webinar: Create. Teach. Learn. Assess: Enhancing Teaching and Accelerating Learning with Technology in 1:1 Environments Mark Hess Principal Walled Lake Consolidated Schools Sarah Banks Middle School Walled Lake, Michigan
  • Mark Hess | Principal | Sarah Banks Middle School www.banksmiddleschool.org www.one-to-oneinstitute.org
  • Background Information Middle school (6-8) | 900 students | 24% Free & Reduced Lunch ~1/3 of students use parent purchased laptops Each interdisciplinary team has a set of 30 district-owned laptops 2 traditional computer labs Not quite a 1:1 school, but fairly close SMART Board in each classroom Document camera in each classroom Video projector in each classroom We are in our 4th year with the SMART Boards
  • Questions we often receive How do I get the staff to “buy‐in” to technology  use in the classroom? What can I do as building leader to model and  promote technology? What kind of results do you see with the  technology integration?
  • How do I get the staff to “buy‐in” to technology  use in the classroom?
  • Clearly, people have embraced and place  value on technology in their personal life,  so why not on their professional life?  Not only do we have a professional  obligation, but we have a moral obligation. Anything less, is educational malpractice. 
  • What can I do as building leader to model  and promote technology? You have a significant, if not the most important, role as building principal in  promoting, modeling, and cultivating a learning community embedded with  digital opportunities. Leaders must have tech awareness! Technology integration in the classroom should be the norm and not the  exception. Let teachers know that you have high expectations and are not afraid to  engage in conversation when those expectations are not met. 
  • What can I do as building leader to model  and promote technology? The principal must model this ‘digital’ attitude by making innovative  technologies a standing agenda item at staff meetings, and allowing teachers  to share best practice ideas and strategies related to digital learning.  Kids eat, breathe, and sleep in a digital world. Your world may look  different. But here’s one thing I know for sure – the kids won’t be joining your  world, so you might as well join their world. It’s an obligation.
  • What kind of results do you see with the  technology integration? Teacher Survey Instructional advantages you have noticed by incorporating the SMART Board into your classroom Students more engaged, interested and excited Great for formative assessments  Students enjoy demonstrating concepts and more motivated to participate It’s like having “Virtual Manipulatives”  Increasing interaction between teacher and students Relevant to today’s learner – Digital Native teaching and learning Allows for more differentiation in the classroom Shortened distance between response and feedback It has helped me become a better teacher Increased test scores
  • What kind of results do you see with the  technology integration? Teacher Survey In your opinion, how has the SMART Board enhanced student learning  in your classroom? More student engagement when lessons are interactive Increases class participation, student interest and motivation Innumerable lessons – do things I could not do before  Made it fun to collaborate with colleagues to find new ways of teaching Enables students to see real world application and make a greater impact Can interact with computer without sitting behind keyboard or desk Great for formative assessments | increases achievement Examples used can be more elaborate and can be saved to reuse later
  • Create a Tech Plan: Essential Questions involve stakeholders & have clear vision be knowledgeable & have tech awareness high expectations for integration professional development monitor progress continue to re‐imagine | digital leadership

  • Effective use of Technology in the Classroom
  • Effective? • Students use technology strictly directed by instructor. • Students Understand Technology and how much it can benefit their learning. • Learning occurs, not just “work”. • 1:1 allows students to discover different possibilities not just during school hours, but also at home and in their spare time.
  • Our Goal? • What do we as educators want to do with technology in the classroom? • Answer: Transform classrooms into centers of interactive learning where students are engaged and teachers are inspired.
  • “Transform classrooms into centers of interactive learning where students are engaged and teachers are inspired.” • Update Lesson plans on the computer • Find a great company of programs to allow you the tools to be effective.
  • “Transform classrooms into centers of interactive learning where students are engaged and teachers are inspired.” • Relieve Frustration • Your comfort with the tools you use will simplify any problem and in return will make technology a great source of education for your students.
  • Sounds good?...HOW? • I cannot speak for everyone, but I can tell you how I choose to go about using technology in my classroom. – SMART Notebook – SMART Sync – SMART Interactive White-Board
  • Works just like paint Hundreds of files, pics, charts, interactive pre-made tools. •Actual SMART notebook screenshot.
  • Procedure Each child has access to SMART notebook on their school issued laptop. • Teacher presentation – Elaborate – Notes – Teacher “helps” – book information • Student copy (notes) – Minus • Pull tabs • Answers • Important notes • computer led FRUSTRATION The point is to MAKE THEM WORK, NOT GET FRUSTRATED!
  • How do I get all my students on the “same page”? • SMART SYNC Teacher benefits – Allows me to monitor 30 computers on one screen. – Allows me to block internet with one click – Allows me to send files out to my class instantly – Allows me to lock the computers down with one click if I need to get the classes attention
  • Students – Organization – Allows students to Submit files to me. (Homework, project, classwork) – Student collaboration – Student Practicality
  • Interactive White-Board Great for Visual or Kinesthetic Learners •Writes just like a white-board. (virtually no training) •Interactive questions on board •Pull tabs •Reveal boxes •Math manipulatives •Etc. (whatever keeps students’ attention)
  • Final Notes: • Remember to find what works for you. • Students get frustrated, it is your job now to eliminate the difficulties • Computers are not going anywhere, so get use to it • Be flexible and do not give up. • It’s worth it if it helps one student.
