  • We provide this expertise and training free to MPS and other districts who collaborate with us. The district provides the incentives/credit….
  • In MILI we focus on the first three of these
  • There are few situations or jobs that do not require information and the ability to apply it.Translitercy is a term that has come into vogue lately—encompasses all types of
  • Content is very broad—phone videos, blogs, yelp reviews along with the more formal traditional types of content creation
  • And therefore—limit their lifelong ability to question, evaluate, and use information in any form
  • Let’s set the stage
  • Old web to new web---more dynamic, more interactive, very wide and very deep (long tail), Social web+Web2.0
  • No real definition, but as Web and data evolve we will see further changes.Slower to come but more widely/quickly acceptedNo more need for print calendars, for example. Life in your pocketWorldCat and Google Scholar for example
  • What changes have we seen in school—and how quickly and well integrated?What was our technology—pencils? Fountain pens? Carbon paper? Mimeograph machines? Slide rules?Classroom was the world—what happened in the classroom stayed in the classroom (unless the teacher called your mom about discipline)Often the first “out of family” experience for kids
  • You can play on the computer when your work is done--Oregon Trail!Technology as an end in itselfFocus on programs—Word, PPT, ExcelPhotocopiers
  • Easier to question authority and support questions with informationOnline content online delivery online creation online sharingiMovie, GarageBand—sophisticated creativity tools in almost everyone’s handsPost your creations on the Internet—a global authentic audience willing and able to tell you what they thinkParents are well-connected, too
  • Typewriters in the 30sTelephones!Readers Guide since about 1901Gentile, refined places—although not really because Carnegie libraries were founded for the “working class”
  • Librarians teaching Dewey and using card catalog—subject headingsResources in school or college or public libraryEarly adopters of technology for things like ILL and cataloging and organizing & retrieving information
  • Same characteristics as classroom 2.0 access and learning everywhereCollaboration and cooperation in information creation and information deliveryLibrarians are needed now more than ever to help users navigate the vastness of information availableGoogle replaced ready reference—when, who, where—but librarians needed to guide users to the whys and hows of finding and using information 7 letter word for umbrella=parasol. Who was in 1932 world series=Yankees & Cubs
  • Still learning the power of personal devices in schools and librariesByod programs—iPads, iPods, iPhones, smartphones, tablets really allow learning everywhereWe need to direct that learningBut we know the power ofiPads in creating personal learning environments that allow teachers, students, families to create a personalized curriculum/experience for every child Heavy use in special ed for communication, learning…
  • Authentic audienceLearning everywhere
  • Flipped classrooms expand our reach—more time to deliver content, more time to differentiate lessons and learning, more time for hands-onMILI using the flipped model for 5 or so years—webinar, f2f, hands on, support via chat/email and other methods.
  • Email, Google Drive (docs), Facebook, Twitter, SmartphonesConnected 24/7It is not “bad”—learn to use the tools to enhance your life
  • Yelp, Zagat other review sitesFlickr, Picasa, photo sitesBlogger, WordpressE-democracySupplying the framework for users to input the content—they are not creating the content
  • iPads—eg larger presonal devicesBYOD model—often phonesCloud spaces for collaboration—Google Drive (aka Docs), Moodle, otherMany games develop the skills we want to teach—problem-solving, collaboration, economics, creativity, higher order thinking skillsPersonal learning environmentsways to support self-directed and group- based learning, designed around each user’s goals, with great capacity for flexibility and customization. PLEs are conceived as drawing on a variety of discrete tools, often chosen by the learner, which can be connected or used in concert in a transparent way. Using a growing set of free and simple tools and applications, such as a collection of apps on a table
  • No longer can we be expected to remain unchallenged in what we say—we can be contradicted and corrected easily Gaming culture, parenting styles, level of independenceUse pf Facebook and other social tools not translating into using Web 2.0 tools in research and productivity—there is still the mindset that computers are for “play”—they need to be taught how to use the tools for organizing their research and displaying their conclusions and products
  • In the 4 or so years before they get to you
  • And what do parents expect? Traditional teaching? Hybrid? Tech-based? No screen time--
  • We can debate whether or not this is “good” but that doesn’t change reality—they want to be digital learnersHow do we teach what students need to know in this new interactive environment.Do they need to memorize facts when they can just do a quick Google search? Or do they need to know what those facts mean in context of history, geography, math…
  • Wi-fi enabled devices—iPads, phones, netbooks—and ubiquitous free wifi at public and academic libraries not to mention at public libraries and commercial spaces McDonalds, Starbucks, Panera and the various Minneapolis hot spots=learning everywhere in almost any space
  • Some estimates say that by 2014 more than 22 million post-secondary students will take courses online—double the number today. Only about ¼ of total students will take all classes F2FIn Minnesota, by 2014 all teachers must be prepared to teach online courses, hybrid courses…
  • Even though they are starting at a young age using technology—most 3 yr olds are not writing long form blog posts. A lot of that activity is monkey see, monkey do. If you sat around gazing at a Speak n Spell or that animal sounds toy, they would want to do that, too. Still parents are using these tools to engage & entertain their children. But tha play doesn’t translate into being an expert in anything beyond the mechanics of swiping or pinching…or knocking down the pigs in angry birrdsBut we do know that older students do use technology—a lot
  • No longer can we be expected to remain unchallenged in what we say—we can be contradicted and corrected easily Gaming culture, parenting styles, level of independenceUse pf Facebook and other social tools not translating into using Web 2.0 tools in research and productivity—there is still the mindset that computers are for “play”—they need to be taught how to use the tools for organizing their research and displaying their conclusions and products
  • We know a lot about how students seek information from various research studies. Recent study of Illinois college students showed that 75% of students could not perform a “well-executed” Google search.College Libraries and Student Culture: What We Now Know5 colleges
  • A lot of info here on how college students do research for class and for every day life. Does show that students struggle with research in college—you can help prepare themPulling out two tables related to MILI content
  • eight in 10 of the 8,353 respondents reported having overwhelming difficulty even starting research assignments and determining the nature and scope of what was expected of them.Nearly half of the students in our survey sample experienced nagging uncertainty about how to conclude and assess the quality of their research efforts. They struggled with the same frustrating open-endedness whether they were researching something for a college course or in their personal lives.
  • The data counter the argument that most college students aredigital natives and that the majority of them are comfortable with technology to the point ofembracing participatory engaging learning environments.The finding suggests even though students may be heavy users of social networking sites, suchas Facebook, Web 2.0 applications for course research have not yet found their way intostudentsʼ research repertoire—yet. Recent research suggests that this trend is very likely tochange within the next few years as students demand for digital course work and time-shiftedinstruction inevitably increase.3030
  • Standards that address 21st century skills and information literacy. Summaries of the standards are handouts
  • All the standards, all the skills, all the pieces are focused on the students—defining and teaching the skills they need to succeed now and the future.
  • There is a lot of noise, a lot to learn, A lot of noise and a lot of competition
  • To learn, to share, to try, to play—so you can really understand the concepts and toolsIt is a commit, but one we know pays off
  • To make MILI most effective for the most people
  • The class is based on these expectations and assumptions
  • A project where the student answers a question that emphasizes higher order thinking and they they answer with research using resources from reliable sources and document/present their results/answer. What would happen if… What are the causes of…. What is the best pet for my family…What changes….THIS IS CRITICAL—WE FOCUS ON THE RESEARCH PROCESS. THE TOOLS & CONCEPTS—AND THE ORDER OF THIS COURSE—FOLLOW A PLAN THAT STARTS WITH RESEARCH.
  • Great to have a new tool, but we aren’t about the tool itself—we want to help you use it wisely and productively for yourself and your classroom. The concepts in the research process are valid without the iPad or any computer. Many tools work on iPads and other computers.
  • Download and remove apps, home button, put in folders, find apps that matter, copy & paste, watch flash, use a browser….
  • As they conduct their research. Librarians are your friends--And you collaborate with the school librarian/media specialist in teaching research skills, identifying resources, teaching responsible use.
  • Which opens a world of information and resources. Encourage students get a card.
  • We are not here to convince you to use the tools. You are here because you want more information & experience around the concepts & tools.
  • If you watch the archived webinar, do it before the in-person meeting.
  • On the Ning (teachers lounge) Through your blog posts, two longform blog posts that demonstrate original thinking, application of concepts, real life experience with tools, or other in-depth reflection on MILI, teaching, best practices, technology. This is how your progress is tracked.
