  • We will be talking about Web 2.o tools later in the session... Anyone used TodaysMeet?  If so- tell us about it...   This is a site that allows you to quickly create a "chat room" where people can interact in real time about a topic.  Connect with your audience in realtime.    Use TodaysMeet for each participant to introduce themselves: Name, school, content area, & tech level (expert tech junkie, intermediate, learning beginner, brand new)   How could this be used in the classroom?   Encourage people to use the live stream to make comments or ask questions and then use that feedback to tailor your presentation, sharpen your points, and address audience needs.
  • Hey Tiffany - Add any links you want to the conference wiki:  I've set it up already:   http://martininstitute.wikispaces.com/Teaching+with+Blended+and+Online+Learning+Environments
  • You can have your cake and eat it too! Best of both worlds.
  • What are these students doing? Emailing, Texting, Watching videos, Checking their online class? They are always connected and as their online teacher, we should be as well. *** Go to the Discussion Board and answer the Opening Question ***
  • Explain what VOCAL stands for
  • Teachers are expected to create an environment where their “presence” is always recognized. What will they do if the sense you are not there?
  • Graphics – choose a related graphic on current topic , holiday or event. Create a dedicated folder in My Pictures that pertain only to your course. Color – use colored text and backgrounds (in moderation) to draw their attention . 10 pt black arial text does not scream “read me” Why must we do this? Students don’t always read directions or news items! Let’s Try it Go to PPT Search for Clipart or Photo suitable for background Insert Clipart or Photo Insert a text box with “news” information; make text box transparent You can use the whole slide if necessary Save As .jpg Go to D2L Add a News item; insert image Tip : If you teach the same course over and over, save all of your news items in a PPT so you can easily edit dates, etc.
  • Videos – Incorporate videos from Discovery Streaming and other web sites (get permission for those, of course!) Make your own – many tools out there Animoto Jing What if the video is in an unacceptable format? www.zamzar.com How to attach As an attachment Embed code As a Quicklink ( must have url) Let’s Try it Animoto Jing
  • Links - use to link to simulations, games, news articles, etc. Let’s Try it Choose Insert Quicklink in the text editor in News
  • So far... Talked about blended learning, and creating a visually engaging online learning experience Let's take it one step further and discuss Web 2.0. Q: It is how we engage those kids in the cell phone photo from earlier!
  • Read & think about it.  Yes it is Controversial... Some of you may agree Some of you may be angered by this statement – the blogger who posted the image received over 60 comments from educators We are not telling you what to to think - We challenge you to think about the resources available and to make the best instructional decisions to facilitate learning. 
  • Web 2.0 = ?   Examples - we use these everyday   Q: Does anyone currently use Web 2.0 tools in the f2f classroom?  Teaching online? Web 3.0 = information is groups so that computers and humans can both understand it
  • Why would should we go to the trouble of learning new technologies when we have SPI's, EOC's, etc. 
  • There are thousands of educationally appropriate and engaging tools available to you and your students!
  • Given the global nature of economy and industry, educators must teach our children to think and creatively solve problems with the intention that youth are prepared for innovation and the advancement of society.  Necessity dictates that we cultivate the development of creative, skilled, life long learners. Whether physical or online, students who actively engage with content take responsibility for their own learning. Teachers who are well versed in technology, pedagogy and content no longer ask themselves “How do I use this technology?”  Research recommends that teachers ask, "Why do I want to use this technology?“ Preparing students for jobs that currently do not exist. They must work in a global economy. The framework for 21 st century learning, America says that WE are falling short. Our students need to become problem solvers – to date we have been falling short….
  • You do not have to be an expert
  • Twiddla is a web-based meeting platform (think collaborative whiteboard).   Why is it imporant to engage our students with Internet technologies and online content?
  • TypeWith.me is the a web-based word processor that allows people to work together in really real-time. When multiple people edit the same document simultaneously, any changes are instantly reflected on everyone's screen. The result is a new and productive way to collaborate on text documents, useful for meeting notes, drafting sessions, education, team programming, and more.    How might this tool be useful in the classroom?
  • Remember...
  • Wiki - collaborative web pages created by multiple users. Users can write and edit information and the content can be continuously changing. Wikis can include video, audio, & text. Blogs - write, react and share in a multi-media format. Social Networks - online communities of individuals with common interests. Find & share resources!
  • Think of a topic you have been working on this week with your students... how could use use this tool?  How could your students use this tool?
  • Google Earth Tours – teachers & students can create a tour, map out a route, calculate distances, look at topography, space, moon, etc How do you find and share tours? Mapwing – use digital photos, scanned images, and/or create a digital drawing of a room, building. Use cardnial points, Add additional photos to create a 365 degree view from one room. Add text descriptions, Nike+ App -
  • Voice Thread – free educational accounts. Create group conversations with images, audio or text comments and live drawing tools. Prezi – presentation tool, create non-linear presentations, zooming in and out around one slide. Animoto- create videos from pictures, video clips and music.
  • Collaboration with Web 2.0 Tools – Promotes higher order thinking; students like variety Let’s Try it VoiceThread – use them from year to year; delete comments Wordle – use words from Discussion board to create - engage
  • With Gliffy online diagram software, you can easily create professional-quality flowcharts, diagrams, floor plans, technical drawings, and more. The online diagram editor makes it easier than ever to create great looking drawings.   Edmodo is a social learning network for teachers, students and schools on the Web. Teachers and students worldwide use Edmodo every day to connect and collaborate in a secure, fun environment. Our free network offers a safe and easy way to post classroom materials, share helpful links and videos, and access homework, grades and school-wide notices. 
  • Wordle Generates word clouds by giving prominence to words that appear more frequently. Student use: Brainstorming meaning of vocabulary words Analyzing Speeches, Articles and Books Displaying poll results Comparing & Contrasting of Topics Analyzing / Describing Characters Voki- create a character or avatar, add a background, add text and watch them speak. Embed to blogs, web pages & wikis. Educational ideas include – foreign language dictionary, historical speaches, tutorial introductions… Social bookmarking – access and share your favorite internet resources from any Internet connection
  • The tutorial videos are very good!
