Transcript

  • 1. Education 2.0
    • How New Media Is Changing Education
  • 2. Education is changing
    • Global economy demands a highly skilled and educated work force
    • We have the ability to gather data on a greater scale, meaning a better ability to analyze what works and what does not
    • Students will be expected to interact in a multimedia, hyperlinked world
  • 3. New Media Can’t:
    • Replace the student-teacher relationship
    • Replace good communication
    • Replace the social nature of a school setting
    • Solve every problem
  • 4.  
  • 5.  
  • 6.  
  • 7. What New Media CAN do
    • Make communication between students, teachers and parents more efficient
    • Make information available 24 x 7, often available by a mouse click
    • Make information independent of time and space
    • Makes Information more accessible (universal design)
  • 8. New Media Can:
    • allow resources to be shared
    • access to supplemental instruction/remediation
    • meet the needs of varied learners (kinestetic, visual, audio, etc.)
  • 9. New Media Is About Community
    • It’s all about sharing knowledge and communicating, but all good communication is a two way street
    • You have to not only listen, but hear what students are saying
    • You have to be willing to ask for and accept feedback
  • 10. Let’s get Beyond “Oooh, Shiny!” “Oooh, Shiny!”
  • 11. It’s Not About Toys
    • Computers are tools, just like pencils
    • You can use any tools for good purposes or for bad
    • We need to teach kids how to use tools responsibly
  • 12. Tools for Sharing Information
  • 13.  
  • 14. Social Networks
    • Twitter
    • Ning
    • Facebook
    • Google groups
    • Flickr
    • Think about public vs. non-public function
  • 15. Visual And Audio Learning
    • Podcasts- iTunes U, MIT Open Courseware, Topical Podcasts
    • News clips- Red Lasso
    • Seesmic, ooVoo,
  • 16. Infinite Possibilities for Problem Solving
    • Late Homework? Have students submit all assignments by posting to a wiki or as email attachments- dated and you can’t forget the work at home
    • Post all assignments on the web- School notes, blackboard, other services
    • Let kids sit in on class through video conferencing when sick, or record it via podcast
    • Class notes could be published on classroom wiki
  • 17. Problem Solving
    • Virtual Homework Help
    • Chat rooms for questions
    • Study groups online (Ryerson example)
    • Wikis- links to articles, background research, bibliographies, samples of good work, etc.
  • 18. Individualizing Education
    • Mentoring and Community relationships are keys for good learning
    • Avoiding these because of “dangers” is like never letting kids ride a bike
    • Never be afraid to care and communicate
  • 19. A Few Questions
    • What is the point of these chestnuts of education:
    • giving the hardest assignment of the year first
    • Telling kids not to ask questions until the end
    • Not establishing a personal relationship with your students
  • 20. Last thoughts
    • Fair and Equal are not the same- kids have different learning styles and need flexibility
    • Universal design of curriculum is good for everyone
    • Make Parents Part of the picture and solution
    • Emphasize the positive
  • 21. It’s all about Good and Productive Communication of Thoughts and Ideas
  • 22. The Challenge- Change Begins with You
    • Call a parent and report good progress or behavior
    • Parents- email a teacher a thank you or bring a cup of coffee for no reason at all- not on teacher’s week, either
    • Don’t be afraid to care and encourage even the kids who are struggling
