This workshop aims to demonstrate what has been a successful model for teacher leadership of the Digital Education Revolution in secondary schools. Through informal discussion and demonstration of specific software and Web 2.0 applications, participants will be introduced to a variety of strategies that have been used to overcome barriers to success that confront teachers.

The aim of this presentation is to facilitate discussion and provide participants with a toolbox of strategies to bring about a 21st Century shift in pedagogy, learning styles and learning environments. Both presenters are leaders of DER within their schools and have collaborated on a number of inter-school projects promoting the innovative integration of technology into the 21st century classroom.

  • I am still really excited that some of my kids are using this platform to ask me questions but even more excited that they are asking EACH OTHER pertinent questions about our work. I'm a convert!!!! Thanks, Bianca for setting this up.
    Yeah Bianca, it rocks my world to. Thanks for modelling it for us all!
    Teacher Responses to Edmodo
  • Teacher Responses to Edmodo
    Bianca, do you know what one of my Year 10s said to me today? I showed them a PowerPoint on dating and we were drilling things. Then she said: "Is this up on Edmodo?" "Oh," I replied. "That's a good idea. Do you want me to put it there?" "She said: "I hate it when teachers don't put it on Edmodo, so we can access it to revise. In English they always put things up there for us...." You are revolutionising us. Just think where we were this time last year.......
  • Teacher Responses to Edmodo
    The best thing about edmodo I found is for the seniors helping each other and being able to support them and them support each other particularly when assessments are due.
    It is a great way to engage all the learning styles and introverts into your lesson. Also a great way to extend students with stimulating extra stuff to support or extend their class work. I love it and it is so fast- no photocopying!
  • STUDENT REFLECTIONS
  • I have enjoyed using my Netbook at school. It has instant information on the internet and lots of good programs.
    The positives of having a Netbook for school are: you don’t need to carry any books, all my work can be filed in folders, I can’t lose any worksheets as long as I save them and instant information on the internet.
    Genuine Student Feedback
  • Genuine Student Feedback
    I think it is good to have a Netbook for school. We can find out over the internet when our assignments are due and hand them in over the internet too.
  • TEACHER FEEDBACK
  • I'm looking forward to Yr 9 having the laptops, whereas I was dreading it with
    Yr 10.... How times change!
  • TROY, THE LONE NUT ...
    ‘I understand HOW, I don’t understand WHY.’ Winston – 1984
    George Orwell
  • My Edutopia ...
  • ... centres on:
    Creativity and innovation
    Critical thinking
    Problem-solving
    Communication
    Collaboration
    Information fluency
    Technological literacy
    “I taught them, but they just didn’t learn!”
  • http://ictpd.net/2008/08/things-that-make-a-difference/‘Constructivism, in a nutshell, says that if you create the right learning environment then students will build (or construct) knowledge and learning for themselves. Constructivism takes the focus off “teaching” and places it on “learning”. It sometimes means teachers have to take their hands off the controls, let go a little, and realise that the best kind of learning happens when students work things out for themselves and not always when they get “taught”.
    You may have heard the phrase:
    “I taught them, but they just didn’t learn!”
  • What about eGATs?
    Extension and assessment activities can include ICT based activities including:
    Film making, visual presentations including PowerPoint, vod and podcasts, recording of audio, designs of websites, advertisements, posters, DVD/Book/CD covers and publication of extended writing tasks using ICT.
    By being active users of technology we aim to build rapport and enhance student/teacher engagement.
  • English Faculty ICT Statement
    The English faculty of Lisarow High School values the role of ICT as another tool of learning and teaching. These statements live within the framework of Stage Four and Five English. From 2010, year 9 and 10 students will have access to DER laptops, however, these statements also highlight the need to prepare teachers and students of years 7 and 8, as years 9, 10, 11, 12 will all have DER laptops by 2012.
    We embrace the ability of ICT as a means of enhancing student communication and the composition of original pieces of creative and factual writing. Within every unit of work, students and teachers can enhance their learning by employing various means of delivery.

  • Get Them Inspired
    A Vision of 21st Century Teachers
  • Help staff to review their pedagogy:
    Rearrange the furniture
    Have a routine
    Make the rules explicit
    Encourage creativity
    Provide choice
    Remember ‘lids half-down’!!
    Empower beginners
  • All kids MUST have netbook AND workbook.
    We MUST have students using BOTH – remember that examinations are still pen and paper based PLUS young people require face-to-face communication skills
    Blended Learning
  • A netbook is NOT for typing up answers to comprehension questions – this is boring, uninspiring and does not help students to learn.
    That Lenovo sure is an ugly paperweight ...
    Blended Learning
  • Blended Learning
    Encourage:
    Communication between students, staff, school and regions
    Collaboration with many
    Creativity in the form of problem-solving, group work and project-based learning.
  • ... and if all else fails ...
  • Give them a push!!
  • “Education is not the filling of a pail, but the lighting of a fire.”
