  • Hi Dan - my view is that EQOA has helped with transparency and accountability but at the expense of creativity and innovation. We need a balance in education and the ranking of schools based on numeracy and literacy only, is not necessarily the best measure.

  • Wow. Pretty powerful stuff. Seems like education is in need of a serious overhaul. EQAO certainly isn't about 21st century learning, is it. Thanks for sharing.

  • A presentation to the MISA East Mobile Learning Symposium on Feb. 22, 2013 in Ottawa Ont Canada. The focus of the presentation was the need to look at the impact of pedagogy and change knowledge along with technology as outlined in Michael Fullan’s book, Stratosphere.
  • First activity – At tables come up with how you determine the definition of StratosphereMay wish to tell them that they can’t use books or InternetGive a prize to whoever volunteers their definitionExplain that preventing them from using resources such as print or the Internet is not a good teaching strategy yet many of our teachers do not allow students to access information using their Smart Phones
  • Show one source of getting the definition of Stratosphere would be the National Earth Science Teachers Association = from a Google SearchReview the definition and mention that there is a layer higher than the Stratosphere, the Mesosphere and wonder why Fullan settled with the Stratosphere in his title … perhaps it was because another book is in the works
  • Explain jokingly the name of his next book
  • Mention that you researched other books called Stratosphere to see if there were any hints from the title as to why he went with this name1 – a book about Las Vegas
  • 2 – A book about discrimination
  • A book about erotic tales
  • A zombie video
  • Felix Baumgartner's supersonic freefall from 128k' - Mission HighlightsShow the video highlight and explain that perhaps Fullan wanted us to realize that teaching and education was like a free fall from outerspace, with the hopes that when it is all over you have landed on your feet!Show video and ask which is more effective for most students, to read about this on a printed text, or to see and experience the event from video and audio and the ability to show this in class the next day or as it happens – that is one area where technology can be used
  • On Page 1 of his book Michael Fullan explains that the title is in reference to three key forces: Technology, Pedagogy, and Change knowledge do not necessarily seek each other outHe also explains that the Stratosphere is meant to connotate, mystery, intrigue, and unknowns, since research on the brain may change how we approach learning in the future.
  • If Ontario is doing so well why are we worried about making more changes with technology?One area where we need to continue to improve is on higher order thinking skills
  • 4 Criteria to think about when it comes to technology having an impact on teaching and learning
  • 4 Criteria to think about when it comes to technology having an impact on teaching and learning
  • 4 Criteria to think about when it comes to technology having an impact on teaching and learning
  • 4 Criteria to think about when it comes to technology having an impact on teaching and learning
  • Think back to the years 2000 – 2010 and how computers, and mainly computer labs were used in schoolReview each of the 4 criteria with a critical view of how these were achieved in that setting
  • Think back to the years 2000 – 2010 and how computers, and mainly computer labs were used in schoolReview each of the 4 criteria with a critical view of how these were achieved in that setting
  • Think back to the years 2000 – 2010 and how computers, and mainly computer labs were used in schoolReview each of the 4 criteria with a critical view of how these were achieved in that setting
  • Think back to the years 2000 – 2010 and how computers, and mainly computer labs were used in schoolReview each of the 4 criteria with a critical view of how these were achieved in that setting
  • Give groups 5 minutes to think and discuss their own school or Board and how they are doing on these 4 criteria today
  • Watch clip of Michael Fullan speaking about his book, Stratosphere and mention that this is a quick 2 minute overview but they can also watch the full interview if they wish
  • Education and Technology BFF! (pg. 5)Give a prize to the first person to find Fullan’s reference to Best Friends Forever in his book
  • Outline that Chapter two is a Doom and Gloom chapter and this slide references the book iDisorder by Larry RosenOutline the negative topicsThen mention that what Rosen says in his book is that he does support technology but in the right amounts of balance and the right supervision based on age
  • How do you view today’s generation of learners?Ask for a show of hands if the audience feels that many teachers or parents take this view as represented by these two photosNeed to base assumptions about the new generation based on research
  • How do you view today’s generation of learners?Need to base assumptions about the new generation based on research
  • Professor Mark Bauerlein in his book, outlines how this is the laziest generation and not contributing to the general advancement of society
  • 2-5 minute discussion at tables regarding the different perspectives in their school and how they think about today’s generation of students
  • How do you view today’s generation of learners?- Mention that this is an older clip but it is a good one for anyone who hasn’t seen it since it shows both perspectives about today’s youthNeed to base assumptions about the new generation based on research Play clip first with the negative notations from Tapscott and then stop the clipAsk why we would bother introducing technology if it is so bad for kids… don’t take answers, then play the remaining clip that shows that the research does not support that view
  • Mention the key conclusions from Fullan’s chapter 2 of the book
  • Desks, rows, teacher directed instruction – does this result in engagement of today’s learners?
  • Teaching practice needs to change, not just the classroom designAlso mention that we can’t expect teachers to use technology if we don’t give them access to it If the only resource a teacher has is a chalkboard, then that is what they will use; however, even with a chalkBoard there are activities that can be done to help make the instructional practice engaging and reflective of 21st Century practices
  • Say This:The Canadian Education Association surveyed over 67,000 grade 5 to 12 students in Canadian schools and they foundDo This:Click to advance to next points on the slideSay This:While 82% of grade 5 students reported that they were engaged in their learning, by grade 11 only 41% reported that they are engaged in their learning. The number increases slightly by grade 12, probably because of the focus on getting into College or University.Do This:Click to advance to the next slideNote:If you are asked specific questions about the study, you can direct the staff member to visit the Canadian Education Association web site and search for the study called “What did you do in school today”.

  • Say this:Karen Hume in her book “Tuned Out” explains that there is a difference between Engagement and CompliantIn some classes, students are quiet and doing the work, but as educators do we know if they are just being compliant or are they engaged in the learning process?Do this:Advance to the next slide
  • Outline the key concepts from Chapter 3
  • Mention that Fullan in his book makes reference to Prensky’s essay, “The Reformers are leaving our schools in the 20th Century” and that this is in reference to the USA; and the strategies that politicians are trying to change educationIndicate agreement with his 10 measures that impact learning- Review each of the 10 measures and focus on pedagogy
  • Indicate agreement with his 10 measures that impact learning- Review each of the 10 measures and focus on pedagogy
  • Activity:At tables, ask groups to rate their own school or Board based on levels 2 – 3 - or 4 and the 10 measures outlined by Prensky
  • Mention that chapter 4 is about more disappointments and some of the conditions that are not present in schools or Boards to help teachers and students meet with success
  • Read quote from page 37 and state that the challenge really isn’t the tool, it’s the pedagogy that has to changeOutline the problems with Prensky’s earlier definition of Digital Native and the problems that students really know how to use technology for socializing but not necessarily for learning
  • Review the work of Hattie- Indicate that we need to take into context that some of his meta studies that show that technology had no impact are precisely because the focus was on the device and not on changes in pedagogy – for example, if we had a study on using computers to impact math achievement and the practice was to bring a class to the lab to work on electronic math worksheets, we would not see a huge correlation on student achievement
  • Mention that the Park Manor example in his book is happening at many schools in the Board as they focus on good pedagogy- mention that the principal at this school is “James Bond” and you wonder if that had anything to do with the selection!
  • Review this quote from a recent blogHighlight again that the device itself will not have an impact but combined with good and changed pedagogy it will- show the poster on the side with the view of helping to teach JK/K students use the device
  • Give examples of poor practices that currently use technology and should not be considered as appropriate use of the tools
  • Discuss the lower order thinking activities of cut and paste and make a poster and the same lower order activity of cut and paste on PowerpointMention that Khan Academy has some benefits but it is not taking advantage of all of the advances in technology
  • Activity at their tablesLook at DI and Assessment and how does it fit with technologyAsk about some of the older assessment practices and is the problem the tool or the practice of multiple choice questions?
  • Outline the link between Chapter 5 and the change process and change knowledge
  • Social media as a key communication channel – relationships and communication are key and that the framework for change must also be part of the discussion, not separate from it. If we want teachers and students to be involved in social learning then we need to create a framework that allows them to do this
  • WiFi impact – outline the importance of the IT department working with curriculum hand in hand to find a balance between lockdown and access, between filtering and the impact on learningIf it is a key component then it must work otherwise it now impacts learning
  • Go through stats and mention that we need to go deeper since access does not equate with learning so we need to think about how we interpret the data
  • Go through the various quotes and asking if we are looking at the correct questions
  • Go through the various quotes and asking if we are looking at the correct questions
  • Go through the various quotes and asking if we are looking at the correct questions
  • Go through the various quotes and asking if we are looking at the correct questions
  • Need to focus on higher order thinking skills, not technology
  • Need to focus on higher order thinking skills, not technology
  • New learning spaces – discuss that the conversation needs to be across the whole system, and not just the technology department
  • Our assumption is that engagement leads to achievement
  • Move from passive recipients of facts to socially active in the creation of knowledgeReview the key areas mentioned in this reportMentioned that this is good teaching, whether it is face to face, online, or blended learning
  • Key Findings of this ReportThe key findings from this report include:Mobile devices when combined with social media and wireless connectivity is enabling more personalized learning opportunities for both students and educators.Driven by several factors, the incorporation of student owned devices within classroom instruction is quickly becoming a viable solution for many schools and districts.Increasingly parental support for mobile learning is changing the district conversation.Changing teacher practice is the critical challenge today to expanding mobile learning.The future of mobile learning depends upon a shared vision for how to personalize learning
  • 1. Students, teachers, administrators and parents are increasingly recognizing the value of sociallearning in both their personal and professional lives.2. Students, in particular, have heightened aspirations for more efectively leveraging sociallearning tools to enhance their engagement in the learning process, access more interestingand relevant educational content, tap into additional opportunities for collaboration withpeers, advisors and mentors and overall, increase their academic productivity.3. Despite this strong value proposition, school site administrators and parents continue tohave lingering concerns about social networking, Internet access and the role of sociallearning tools.4. Within the administration ranks, Speak Up data has revealed a new cohort of school siteadministrators that is particularly interested in leveraging social learning more extensivelywithin instruction. Those administrators are paving a new path for the innovative use of thesetools within their schools and districts.
  • We need to realize that some practices won’t change unless we decide to make them change and we provide the conditions for success We also need to realize that sometimes direct instruction is the best approach, but it is the skill of the teacher to know which practice and which tool to use at the right time and for the right student
  • Say this:This is a definition from page 3 of Leading 21st Century Schools - The change is from static memorization to more of a constructivist and inquiry based approach to education
  • Say this:This chart shows how we are looking for a balance from traditional approaches of teaching – on the left side of the chart, to new approaches on the right. We are not looking for solely the right hand side but a balanced approach.Reflect on your own teaching practice, where do you fall on the continuum – left side – right side, in between?
  • Mention that the device is going to keep changing, whether it is an iPad, or Google Glasses, or a wearable device that looks like a traditional watch - we need to focus on the use of the device and how it can provide access to the right resources, not a focus on the device
  • Outline this resource for planning to move away from traditional textbook to other multi-modal resources
  • Another resource to look at a plan to move to digital
  • Increase your PLN – suggest joining an EdWEB group of interest for free
  • Increase your PLN
  • Mention ScoopIT as a great site for networking and staying current with resources
  • Mention the impact of the Common Core on Ontario with the development of multi-modal resources for teachers and students like GoogruLearning.org
  • Mention the impact of the Common Core on Ontario with the development of multi-modal resources for teachers and students like Learn Zillion.com
  • Highlight the key concepts of chapter 6
  • 3 Skinny notes to summarize the book
  • Do this:we are all part of the changes as we continue to transition to a 21st Century Learning and Teaching Environment

  • Technology is Dangerous•
  • How does your community view today’s learners?• Dumbest generation Spoiled generation Self-centered Me generation Cheaters
  • Are today’s students the Dumbest Generation?• “The twenty first century teen, connected and multitasked, autonomous yet peer-mindful, makes no great leap forward in human intelligence, global thinking, or netizenship”. Mark Bauerlein
  • Discussion Time Are today’s students the Dumbest Generation? Perspectives of Education Community?Parents? Teachers? Trustees? Administration? Board staff?
  • A different Generation of LearnersIs this the Smartest or the Dumbest Generation?
  • Chapter Two Conclusions•School Boredom has no chance against the addictive digital draw of the outside world (pg. 14) Integrating Technology, Pedagogy,(technology)… has far more upside than downside potential. It is time and Change Knowledge to define the learning game as racing with technology (pg. 16)
  • Changes in Education? How much has really changed?
  • What really needs to change?
  • Canadian Education Association Study
  • Canadian Education Association Study
  • Are students Compliant orEngaged? Karen Hume Engagement is always about relationship with a person, situation, or activity (pg. 7) District and school leaders need to ensure that all necessary conditions are in place to support the kinds of technology use that can make a real difference in student engagement and achievement. (pg. 186)
  • Chapter Three: Pedagogy and Change• Stratosphere will make the lives of both students and teachers exciting (pg. 17) Create conditions for deep engagement of both students and teachers (pg. 30)
  • Prensky – 10 measures that impact learning 1. Doing less telling – allowing students to research the answers 2.•Connecting what is taught with the real- world outcomes 3. Distinguish between Skills and Tools 4. Treat students as learning partners 5. Allow students to use their own tools for learning (Smartphones) (pg. 31/32) Mark Prensky, “The Reformers are Leaving our Schools in the 20th Century”, 2012 – pg. 16
  • Prensky – 10 measures that impact learning 6. Use more peer to peer teaching 7. Allow more choice for students • 8. Allow students to be the primary users of classroom technology 9. Share success via short videos posted online 10.Connect students with the world via tools like Skype (pg. 31/32) Mark Prensky, “The Reformers are Leaving our Schools in the 20th Century”, 2012 – pg. 16
  • How do you rate your school / Board ? 1. Doing less telling – allowing students to research the answers 2. Connecting what is taught with the real-world outcomes • 3. Distinguish between Skills and Tools Level 2 ? 4. Treat students as learning partners 5. Allow students to use their own tools for learning (SmartPhones) Level 3 ? 6.

  • Chapter 4 – Digital Disappointments• 1. The organizational support for the use of technology in schools is badly underdeveloped… -Availability of digital media -Shared vision -School culture -Technical support -Leadership -Assessment systems (pg. 37)
  • “…students loved working and playing withsmartphones, iPods, iPads, computers… ofall kinds”… students were not so savvysurfers…lack the skills they need to usethose tools effectively for learning...In other words, making digital devicesavailable and helping teachers and studentsuse them is the easy part – but it isn’t pedagogy (pg. 37) Be careful of the Digital Native bandwagon
  • Chapter 4… Links the work of Hattie to Stratosphere-High yield practices rely on the influence ofstudent peers, feedback, transparent learningintentions, success criteria, and adjustmentsof instruction-The teacher is the change agent who helpsstudents learn how to learn and how tomonitor their own learning (pg. 48)- We need to get our pedagogy and ourtechnology straightChanges Technology Change in KnowledgePedagogy
  • Chapter 4… Park Manor example-…digitally rich learning tasks withoutlimits…integrates technological tools,exemplary pedagogy, rich learning tasks, and21st Century learning skills. (pg. 51)-At Park Manor it is clear that pedagogy is thedriver with student learning at the center andtechnology as the …machine that gets thestudent there faster and better. (pg. 51)Changes Technology Change in KnowledgePedagogy
  • Good Teaching Practice is still needed Poster for Primary“…In order for this move to be successful studentswe need to ensure that the students havetheir learning scaffolded in much thesame way that we have always done.Introducing iPads into the classroomis not an alternative to good teachingbut rather it is another tool that goodteachers use.Apps in Education Blog – Feb. 17, 2013Greg Swanson @GregDSwanson
  • What practices still need to change? • Posting notes on a SmartBoard for students to copy on their iPads Electronic worksheets withBe careful of math problems completed 20th century in a computer lab teachingpractice using 21st Century tools
  • What practices still need to change? • Assignments such as creating a PowerPoint presentation to highlight the main features of France “Khan Academy is a great 20thBe careful of century pedagogue using 21st 20th century century technology… improved the delivery system of the old teaching way”. (pg. 38)practice using 21st Century tools
  • What practices still need tochange at your school / Board ? How does differentiated instruction and assessment fit with technology at your school?Do you still use Scantron – automated marking?Do you still have computer labs?Do you use technology to automate correction ofmainly multiple choice questions?
  • Chapter Five: Change Knowledge•Motion Leadership –“leadership that causes positive movementforward for individuals, organizations, and entire systems” Normal to fear change - pg. 66 --------- “Pedagogy and technology -“Our challenge is to provide the directional vision; combine the best of change knowledge helps uschange knowledge with the best of technology and achieve it, learning while we pedagogy” – pg. 70 go - pg. 66
  • System Change – Policies Social Media• Policies
  • WiFi has had a major impact on EquityInfrastructure decisions have an impact on Technologyand Pedagogy – System Impacts (Change Knowledge)
  • Wireless = Accessibility 100% increase in 1 year Key Points • On a typical day we have over 28,000 unique devices connecting to our wireless network • iPad access has had a 400% increase in 1 year • iPod Touch remains the most popular device
  • Is this the right question? What is the computer to student ratio in our school?Are you asking theright questions?
  • Is this the right question? How many iPads do I have in my class?Are you asking theright questions?
  • Is this the right question? Do you show digital movies from YouTube?Are you asking theright questions?
  • Is this the right question? How many SmartBoards do we have in our school?Are you asking theright questions?
  • Is your focus on the tool or on skill acquisition?• Let’s Critical Thinking complement the 3Rs with Communication the 4Cs as we Collaboration become 21st Creativity Century Leaders & Learners
  • Is your focus on the tool or on skill acquisition?• How often do activities focus on remembering (memorizing) vs. Creating and Evaluating?
  • Change Knowledge – Environmental Design•
  • Students are the focus Changesin Teacher Practice Increased Increased Student StudentEngagement Achievement
  • We can’t ignore technological changes impacting the World Moving from what students should We need to know… to what move from… students can doThis is true for Face to Face,Blended, and Online Learning

  • What’s needed to change this practice?Pedagogy – Technology – Change Knowledge
  • 21st Century Learners Traditional schools involved teachers and textbooks delivering information to students, and students reflecting that information back. To better serve their future, today’s classrooms should facilitate teaching and learning as a conversation – two- way conversations between teachers and learners, conversations between learners and other learners, conversations among teachers, and new conversations between the classroom Page 3 and the home and between the school and its community. - David Warlick
  • Shifting Practices? Page 38
  • 21st Century Learning ≠ Computers Pg. 59 “Electronic classroom tools such as PowerPoint presentations, online videos, and high-tech presentation equipment were still tied to the same material in the same school environment. Certainly these tools made education more interesting and allowed for opportunities to present content in new and different ways, but they were still tied to static material presented in a static learning environment. Today’s learners need something more attuned to their daily lifestyles – connected, and often virtual. That’s where mobile learning comes into play.”
  • Teaching Practice… it’s not aboutthe tools! Pg. 95 “Stop Talking… and Start Doing!” “Even though this research has been around for decades, many educators continue to depend completely on the “stand and deliver; sit and learn” full-frontal lecture method. If we were to be really honest with ourselves, we know intuitively that this isn’t working”. (2011 – Ian Jukes, Lee Crockett, Andrew Churches)
  • Brain based research… “Children raised with the computer think differently from the rest of us. They develop hypertext minds. They leap around. It’s as though their cognitive structures were parallel, not sequential. Linear thought processes that dominate educational systems now can actually retard learning for brains developed through game and web-surfing processes on the computer”. (pg. 79) …Digital Natives crave interactivity…So it generally isn’t that Digital Natives can’t pay attention, it’s that they choose not to. Pg. 81) (2012 Marc Prensky – From Digital Natives to Digital Wisdom)
  • 21st Century Learning ≠ Technology Pg. 140 Simply inserting technology into classrooms and schools without considering how the contexts for learning need to change, will likely fail. Allan Collins
  • What lies ahead?We can’t predict the device of the future… and that’s ok
  • Future Trends for Leaders… 1. It’s all about access 2. Tension between access and security continues 3. You can’t keep abreast of everything 4. Relations with IT Dept. are critical 5. Social media can extend learning 6. Stay out front, but not too far ahead of your community Pg. 210 (Williamson and Johnston, 2012)
  • Trends in Education1. Cloud Access and Digital Resources2. Device Agnostic3. Social Learning – trusted sources4. 24/7 mobile access5. Skills focus will lead to Higher Order Thinking
