  • So … I want you to think a little bit about the big picture. Imagine to yourself what your classroom
  • Students should have the ability to help themselves. Parents should have the ability help their students. Especially if you empower them.
  • Teachers have been UBD’d to death, and in many schools spend a lot of time and energy worrying about whether their long range plans and lesson plans and daily planners fit the exact correct format. This is understandable … blah, blah, blah BUT sometimes I think the brilliant, simple, obvious unassailable logic of UBD.
  • Also personal goals for yourself – use it to iron out what you perceive as rough spots in your own program. Whatever it is, there is probably an app for that.
  • Accessing great resources also means teaching kids to access them, and going through the process of sharing them.
  • Remember: this doesn’t just apply to the students.

    Technology integration supports instructional design by facilitating rich, collaborative & authentic tasks.
    Classroom management facilitates instructional design by creating an effective learning environment.
    the sweet spot
    Instructional design facilitates technology integration by providing clear learning goals and rich activities which use technology to its fullest.
    Technology integration supports classroom management with communication tools and quick access to a wealth of resources for added support or enrichment.
    Classroom management supports technology integration by ensuring that technology resources are used effectively.

  • BEST PRACTICES IN
    Classroom Management
    Setting the tone.
    • Emphasize the classroom as a learning environment – all decisions – including when to use (or not to use) technology should be seen and explained through that lens.
    • Cultivate an environment where students are held accountable for their actions.
    • Model appropriate conduct – teachers need to do a better job managing their own use of technology.

    2. Clear and consistent rules, procedures
    and consequences.
    • Spend class time discussing and/or developing rules and procedures. Keep them as brief and simple as possible.
    • Procedures can included structured timing, daily responsibilities, and expectations for behavior while input or discussion is happening.
    • They should be posted in the classroom and made available to parents, online or otherwise.

  • Common SenseSchoolRules For DevicesIn the Classroom
    Laptops, including tablets, are permitted in classrooms for basic educational purposes. Other devices, such as Blackberries, iPods and other smart phones may be permitted for specific activities.
    Devices must be used in the classroom ONLY for specific, educational purposes as specified by the teacher.
    Personal communications (Facebook, email, chat) or digital entertainment (such as games or movies) are NEVER permitted inside the classroom, unless for specific educational activities authorized by the teacher.
    Teachers should develop routines and procedures defining when and how computers should be used in their classroom. It is the responsibility of the teacher to clearly establish and communicate these expectations.
    Computers should be treated as basic educational tools. Access should not be denied as a punishment, nor granted as a reward.

  • Mr.Peters’ClassroomRules for Electronics
    In our classroom:
    Laptops or tablets, are encouraged. Smartphones may be used at designated times to update homework or To-Do lists.
    You must enter this classroom with all devices off, and leave the classroom with all devices off.
    No games, entertainment, or personal communications in the classroom. EVER.
    No taking pictures or video of others without their permission.
    You are accountable for your words and conduct both in class, and online.
    Computer problems are NEVER an excuse for late or missing work. Save often. Leave yourself extra time. PROBLEM SOLVE.

    Progressive discipline
    • A great system doesn’t mean you’ll never have trouble. Be ready with the next step.
    • In a progressive discipline model consequences become more severe when behaviors are repeated or become more severe.
    • DOCUMENTATION IS THE KEY.

    Backwards Design
    Backwards designis an instructional design method invented by Wiggins and McTighe and is part of their larger Understanding by Design framework.
    BASIC PHILOSOPHY: Design with your goals in mind and work backwards to provide students with the skills and knowledge they need to be successful.

    Backwards Design Principles & Technology
    Choose and use technology purposefully – to address the goals you want to achieve.
    You can set content-driven goals (ie. their knowledge of the subject) and also skill-driven goals (ie. the ability to use computers to collaborate.)
    Remember to think about the necessary computer skills students will need to be successful – don’t assume.

    2. Contructivist Principles
    Constructivism was popularized by the writings of Jean Piaget. Learning is viewed as a active process.
    BASIC PHILOSOPHY: Emphasizes the learner as a unique individual. You don’t teach the students, as such, they must construct their own knowledge. Teachers are cast in the role of facilitators or guides.

    Kim Cofino(http://kimcofino.com) is an international educator and technology facilitator (presently based in Japan). Her writing on blending backwards design principles with technology integration was a major source of inspiration for this presentation.
    Steve Katz (http://www.teachwithvideo.com) is an author, technology facilitator, and former international educator who has prepared several presentations on classroom management in 1:1 and other device heavy environments. The great “Oxygen” analogy and many of the practical management tips come from one of his presentations.
