  • Slates: (1703) Students today can’t prepare bark to calculate their problems. They depend on their slates, which are more expensive. What will they do when the slate is dropped and it breaks? They will not be able to write.” Teachers Conference, 1703 Paper: (1815) Students today depend upon paper too much. They don&apos;t know how to write on slate without getting chalk dust all over themselves. They can&apos;t clean a slate properly. What will they do when they run out of paper? Fountain Pens: (1914 )“Students today depend on these expensive fountain pens. They can no longer write with a straight pen and nib. We parents must not allow them to wallow in such luxury to the detriment of learning how to cope in the real business world which is not so extravagant.” PTA Gazette, 1914Ink: (1929) Students today depend upon store bought ink. They don&apos;t know how to make their own. When they run out of ink they will be unable to write words or ciphers until their next trip to the settlement. This is a sad commentary on modern education. The Rural American TeacherBall point pens: (1950) &quot;Ballpoint pens will be the ruin of education in our country. Students use these devices and then throw them away. The American virtues of thrift and frugality are being discarded. Business and banks will never allow such expensive luxuries.&quot; Federal Teacher

  • GOALS (What we will do): Communicating, Collaborating, Learning, and Researching DRAFT Core Values of the Morgridge International Reading Center (aka “How we will act”) 1. LITERACYEverything that the Morgridge Center does will be focused on reading and literacy development including events, gallery space, and research that comes from the Center. Reading and literacy development will be the driving force behind all activities and materials. 2. SERVICEThis core value speaks to the incredible need for effective literacy instruction. Individuals who cannot read, cannot participate fully in any society. A focus for the Morgridge Center will be giving back to the community, city, state, nation, and world, with the explicit target to raise literacy levels. This can be accomplished by donations of literacy materials, funding of philanthropic efforts, education of teachers and administrators, and many other avenues. 3. ACCESSEverything in the building will be able to be experienced by people of varying physical and mental capacities. Each venue in the gallery and each event will be accessible to all. The Morgridge Center website will continue to develop ways to enhance accessibility. 4. RESEARCHThe best way to show that something is effective for students is to conduct systematic research. The Morgridge Center leadership recognizes that research takes on many formats and informs in different ways. Both qualitative and quantitative research, when done systematically and using trusted research methodology will inform theory use and development. All displays and activities hosted by the Morgridge Center will be supported by sound research practices. When possible, specific research reports and summaries will be available for review. These core values of Literacy, Service, Access, and Research will undergird our efforts to “Bring people and ideas together” while Learning, Researching, Communicating, and Collaborating. With time to reflect on our efforts, we will be efficient stewards of the knowledge and resources we have. The leadership of the Morgridge Center will be encouraged to reflect individually and corporately, for the furtherance of the organization. Each event at the Morgridge Center will strive to communicate the importance of reading and literacy development through elegant surroundings and appropriate environments, using humor and good will to promote the cause of raising literacy attainment.

    2. 2. As the globe is shrinking, our task as teacher preparers is to expose future teachers to successful ways to implement 21st Century thinking into the curricula. <br />Instead of seeing this as a daunting task, teachers will embrace new tools and new ways of investigating literacy instruction. One example of a new tool is the digital story. <br />

    11. 11. IRA Position Statement onIntegrating Literacy and Technology in the Curriculum (2002)<br />The Internet and other forms of information and communication technology (ICT) are redefining the nature of literacy. To become fully literate in today’s world, students must become proficient in the new literacies of ICT. Therefore, literacy educators have a responsibility to integrate these technologies into their literacy curricula.<br />
    12. 12. NCTM Position Statement onThe Role of Technology in the Teaching and Learning of Mathematics (March 2008)<br />Technology is an essential tool for learning mathematics in the 21st century, and all schools must ensure that all their students have access to technology. Effective teachers maximize the potential of technology to develop students’ understanding, stimulate their interest, and increase their proficiency in mathematics. When technology is used strategically, it can provide access to mathematics for all students.<br />
    13. 13. NSTA Position Statement onThe Use of Computers in Science Education (1999)<br />Just as computers play a central role in developing and applying scientific knowledge, they can also facilitate learning of science. It is therefore the position of the National Science Teachers Association that computers should have a major role in the teaching and learning of science. Computers have become an essential classroom tool for the acquisition, analysis, presentation, and communication of data in ways which allow students to become more active participants in research and learning. <br />
    14. 14. NCSS (2006)Technology Position Statement and Guidelines<br />As an organization, we continually need to demonstrate and research how effective use of technology enhances social studies teaching and learning. The new technologies, for example, enable users to access, organize, and communicate information in ways unfathomable until recently. <br />

    16. 16. Digital Literacies<br />. . . however, are here to stay—they are at the core of new literacies—and educators should consider how to best weave together old, new, and future literacies so that young people leave school literate in the ways of school and the ways of the world (O’Brien & Scharber, 2008)<br />
