      • Review Backwards Planning

    • Why Teach with Technology?
    • Why Teach with Technology?
      • Whoever is doing most of the talking, or most of the typing, is doing most of the learning (and the more people listening the better)
      • The more ways we put ideas in our head, the more likely they are to stay there
      • Learners need to be both independent and effective collaborators- technology can scaffold both
      • All of the sources that helped us fall in love with the discipline are accessible online
    • Two Helpful Theories
      • For designing courses, unit plans and projects: Backwards Design
      • For designing technology-based lessons: Collect-Relate-Create-Donate
    • Backwards Planning See Wiggins and McTighe, Understanding by Design Develop lesson activities How will you prepare students to master the goals and succeed on the assessment task? Design assessment tasks How will students demonstrate their developing mastery of those goals? Select learning goals What do you want students to learn by the end of the lesson or unit?
    • Collect-Relate-Create-Donate Students Should …
      • Collect the information needed for the performance of understanding
      • Relate to one-another in collaborative learning groups
      • Create meaningful, authentic performances of understanding
      • Donate their work to a broader audience
    • Exemplar Wikis
      • Great Debate of 2008
      • Flat Classroom Project
      • AP World History Exam Review

    • Why Wikis?
      • Wikis are flexible environments that can serve multiple purposes. They are “blank slates”
      • Wikis provide an easy mechanism for students and teachers to collaborate and communicate
      • Wikis can be used to communicate with text, hyperlinks, images, audio files, embedded video, polls, and more…
    • Teaching Web 2.0 tools through “Challenges”
      • Divide you into groups of ~3
      • Present you with a list of challenges of increasing difficulty
      • Let you explore and practice at your own pace
      • Require you to turn to your groupmates for primary support
      • Ask me anytime you get stuck
      • If enough folks are stuck in the same place, we’ll have a mini-lesson
    • Wiki Challenges
