  • 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
  • Shorter term challenges: whether adapting to new assessment approaches and curricula; seeking to take advantage of the affordances of new technologies; trying to find new ways to support specific learners, or adapting to the particular needs/requirements of a class ... Change as constant.
  • 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.

  • 11.30 – 12.30 Overcoming the barriersDan to lead: brief overview of ways of looking at the barriers (based on FL research literature); 30 mins: Groups to undertake a quick activity looking at methods for overcoming particular challenges and mapping ideas/responses against the challenges on the Google Doc (creating a shared list of tools, resources and practices).Dan to facilitate sharing of list: Point #2 working within a community amplifies access to resources and practices that are mediated by professional community

  • 1.00– 1.30 Recap of morning’s activities and introduction to afternoon sessionDan to present a range of tools and resources for using digital media in the classroom (search tools, authoring tools, video resources, presentation tools and communication tools).  Linking from the emerging practices shared in the morning – the aim is to provide a range of developments that may support the use of digital media in the classroom.
  • 1.30 – 2.30 Creating ‘elevator pitches’Using Flip cams, Qik, VoiceThread etc, small groups are to create elevator pitches (2-3 min powerful messages) for either: ‘the role of digital technologies in science teaching’ or ‘the use of the [LSN] network’.  This session should support the participants in starting from real classroom-based challenges, to describing the benefits (and linked resources) that may be found through the network(Note – this session should create useful resources that can populate the sharepoint site and/or be used by consultants and teachers to share their work with

  • 2.30 – 2.45 Sharing elevator pitchesParticipants acting as critical friends for each others’ work.  Do pitches address concerns that they each face, do they make recommendations that will support teachers?
  • 3.30  - 3.45 Plenary, gathering next steps and end.Dan to overview the journey of the workshop in relation to processes of educational change (relate to ownership, motivations for joining and participating in communities and future need for involvement in community).  Mark/Beth summing up next steps
