  • 10 – 10.30 Introduction to the Day (Mark/Beth); overview of the agenda (Dan)Trying to understand what the challenges are – from your experience and wider research. Trying to link these to motivations and reasons to try to overcome them.Then, sharing experiences of how we can overcome them, before building some shared resources to support others in overcoming that work.We’ll be building a shared document today that hopefully will provide useful to you all outside of this day in working with othersThe elevator pitches will

  • 10.30 – 11.15: The challenges of using digital media in science teachingSo we start off with some of the challenges that teachers see in using digital media.20 min ‘brainstorm’ in small groups to map the key challenges to using digital media in the science classroom.  Each participant to write a few issues on post-it notes; groups then to sort the issues into themes (which should emerge during the session, but are likely to include technical, time, motivation/need etc).  Groups then use Google docs to share their own lists, building a shared set of challenges the participants are aware of to using digital media in the classroom.  (note – need to ensure good wireless access for all participants and that they either bring their own laptops or we provide one per group) Dan to facilitate sharing of list: Point #1 working as a team/network we (should) have found shared challenges (beginnings of a community) and new ideas from others.

  • Developing sustainable communities of practice
    using digital media to support the teaching of Triple Science

  • Aims
    The overall aim is to develop a ‘sustainable community’ of triple science practitioners – to support collaborative delivery (collaborative development, practice, support and reflection) and the use of digital media.
     
    The aim of the day is to understand the challenges of being (actively) involved in such a community; the challenges of getting (and remaining) involved, and the ways in which digital technologies can support this community.
  • Challenge of Innovation
    ‘...change in education may now be thought of as a constant condition, rather than an event’
    Futurelab Literature review: Teachers Learning with Digital Technologies: A review of research and projects, p.5
  • End-user innovation
    … a source of innovation, only now becoming widely recognized, is end-user innovation. This is where an agent (person or company) develops an innovation for their own (personal or in-house) use because existing products do not meet their needs
    “end-user innovation [is], by far, the most important and critical”
    Eric Von Hippell Sources of Innovation
  • Challenge of starting online communities of practice then...
    ‘… the fallacy is to think that social networks are made up of people. They’re not; social networks consist of people who are connected by a shared object [aim].’
    JyriEngestrom

  • Barriers to using digital media
    Using post-it notes: what are the key challenges to using digital media in the science classroom.
    write a few issues on different post-it notes
    Sort them with your group in to themes (technical issues, confidence, support, time etc)
    Using google docs – can we compile a shared list of challenges?
    what similarities are there between groups? what links the themes?

  • Overcoming the barriers
    How are the barriers articulated by teachers/heads etc?
    What are the benefits to attempting to overcome the barriers?
    Sharing stories of when barriers have begun to be overcome
    - what practices ?
    - what tools/resources ?
    - what examples ?
    Share in groups & on google docs (30 mins)
  • Key theme: no sharing online
    How is it described?
    Tech problem? Pedagogic problem? Individual problem?
    - ‘no time to share’
    - ‘people using resources but not commenting’
    - ‘high downloads, low uploads’
    - ‘no time to search online’
    ‘ no time to QA resources’
    Benefits
    - innovation happens at intersection of disciplines
    - where it goes on, sharing can lower preparation, time increase resources elsewhere etc etc
  • Distance and dependence
    Intertwining of practice and technology rather than ‘pedagogy before practice’
    Innovation Itself
  • Perceived and actual
    Different characteristics: Longevity, Fecundity, Copy Fidelity,
    Innovation Itself
  • Overcoming the barriers
    Sharing stories of when barriers have begun to be overcome
    - what practices ?
    - what tools/resources ?
    - what examples ?
    Share in groups & on google docs (30 mins)
  • Personal Learning Networks
    Personal Learning Networks are created by the person at the centre of them. As such, they are difficult to describe as each can vary greatly from others, yet they can be characterized as non-formal networks that take advantage of digital and physical tools to bring together the most useful and interesting sets of people to provide ideas, inspirations, resources and support systems. These networks are reciprocal, flexible and necessarily personal.
    It is interesting that the reciprocity of PLNs comes by taking advantage of current social processes, rather than setting out to encourage new activities for people to share innovations. That is, by utilising existing sharing networks (Twitter, Facebook, google Docs, TeachMeet) the single act of sharing becomes used for a variety of purposes which are contextualised by other parts of the PLN.

  • Elevator pitches
    In groups choose:
    - a barrier (or theme)
    - a tool/resource
    - a practice
    ... And create an elevator pitch to share the benefits of a new approach to teaching science
    - ensure you describe the challenges and the benefits.
