  • Presentation to MISA EAST – Mobile Device Learning Day on Friday February 22, 2013
  • When it comes to mobile devices in the classroom we need to recognize that the impact is on both teacher practice and student learning
  • The success criteria must be established as to what you are hoping to achieve with the implementation of technology in the classroom – is it student engagement, increased attendance, credit accumulation, graduation rates, and so on. We must determine in advance what it is that we are trying to have an impact on as a result of introduction technology into the classroom.
  • The SEF Document has several options to consider when looking at technology. The school improvement plan may wish to highlight certain areas of the SEF to focus on and then these can be assessed as part of learning walks, district reviews, or other measurement activities.
  • Examples of areas of the SEF that deal directly with digital technologies in the classroom and school.

  • Examples of areas of the SEF that deal directly with digital technologies in the classroom and school.
  • The ISTE Nets are being used around the world as one possible set of criteria to assess the impact of technology in education.
  • The ISTE Nets for teachers indicate specific skills that our teachers should have related to technology in education
  • Some Boards are using surveys and research reports to measure the impact of projects such as MISA, and CODE to determine if technologies and mobile devices are having an impact on teacher practice and student learning
  • Two sample reports from the Ottawa Catholic School Board – one done by university researchers to look at the impact of iPods and SmartBoards in middle school classes and the other done by a school Board research to look at the impact of DreamBox math on student achievement and teacher practice.
  • One challenge is that the target keeps moving in Ontario so we need to ensure we are aware of the priorities we are aiming to hitMichael Fullan has released a new report for Ontario, moving from great to excellent – the next stage of Ontario’s Education Agenda
  • How are you determining success criteria for learning and teaching in the 21st Century at your Board or school?
  • Discussion to get you thinking?
  • A tougher decision is to consider decreases in staff and increases in technology investmentsAn easier question is to look at thinking outside the box at what programs or initiatives could be stopped to save money that can be redirected into technology
  • Good Luck as you move along theprocess in your board

    • 4. SEF Document? Indicator 2.4 Job-embedded and inquiry-based professional learning builds capacity, informs instructional practice and contributes to a culture of learning. Students: Articulate how instructional practices support their learning (e.g., how technology helps them extend their ideas and challenges their thinking)

SEF Document?Indicator 4.3Teaching and learning incorporates 21st Century content, globalperspectives, learning skills, resources and technologies.At the school: Professional practice, lifelong learning and leadership are modelled through theeffective use of digital tools and resources. Policies for the safe, legal and ethical use of digital information and technology areestablished, modelled and promoted. Students are connected and challenged beyond the world of the school usinglearning technologies. A global perspective is developed and presented in content areas whereappropriate. Critical thinking, problem solving, communication and collaboration areemphasized. Collaboration, lifelong learning, inquiry, reflection and technology use are modelled.

Higher order thinking skills are taught and consistently integrated acrossdisciplines. Students are taught to integrate, synthesize and apply content knowledge innovel situations. Assignments and assessments require students to engage in critical thinking,problem solving and analytical tasks. Students work with real world data, tools and experts. Instruction includes how to access resources, connect with others and create e-communities and learn about the ethical/legal issues surrounding access and use ofinformation technologies.
    • 8. SEF Document?Indicator 4.3Teaching and learning incorporates 21st Century content, globalperspectives, learning skills, resources and technologies.Students: Have access to and use technologies to support and document their learning.( e.g.digital cameras, film, web 2.0, podcasting, video, graphing technology, assistivesoftware and interactive whiteboards). Integrate, synthesize and apply content knowledge in novel situations with growingindependence. View challenges as opportunities to learn. Work effectively and respectfully with diverse teams.
