  • if you were in one of these classrooms, the chalkboard would have been your textbook and workbook.
  • Replaced this photo in Web 1.0 workshop
  • The Internet came along in the early 1990’s but only was an information source for schools because web pages were difficult to create and required knowledge of HTML programming. Because of the difficulty and expense, schools did not publish on the Internet, so this first internet is often called the read only internet or Web 1.0.

  • All of these things are part of the fact that we are redefining literacy.
  • I listened to a book on the way here? Is that literacy.Book Shown: Pillars of the Earth by Ken Follett – I recommend for adult readers only.

  • We’ll demystify the terms and translate them into practical classroom uses.
  • Humans are required to interpret the material on the internet – we are the ultimate processor of information. The greatest filter ever created is between the ears of our students. We cannot rely entirely on filters and must teach students how to effectively navigate these online spaces. That being said, while my student collaborate with dozens of countries, I believe
  • Elementary schools use private tools (free) tools like think.com to create private spaces for students to network all over the world. Cheryl Oakes from Maine works with this school and tells me she has enjoyed think.com for some time. In fact, my good friend Cheryl couldn’t be here tonight because she’s on Seedlings Bit By Bit on Edtechtalk.com right now – I hope that after tonight, you’ll listen to her new show at www.edtechtalk.com
  • Please share what you’re doing while I share what we’re doing to network educationally at our school this year.Private Ning – My students and I.School Wide Ning – parents, students teachers – also private.Public Nings for
  • We have public Nings for projects, but we’ve stopped building new ones because we’re using the groups feature more extensively. If you want to sign up to be a judge, please join the Ning http://flatclassroomproject.ning.com and then join the judges group – or the expert advisors group – everyone joins the project group. We don’t go on public ning’s until the 10th grade – after they have had 2 ½ semesters with me on our private spaces.
  • So let’s look at a few people who are inspirational? Ernie Easter in New Sweden Maine has had his 7th and 8th grade students partner with a local history museum to create a living history project. To document the stories of the people in his area – before they die. What a beautiful testimony and instead of giving Christmas presents to one another
  • instead of giving Christmas presents to one another, he connected his students to a battered women’s shelter and they gave gifts to a mother and her children. Instead of just focusing on each other – they learned something amazing. He gave them the gift of connection and yet, it goes further.http://bitbybitseedlings.ning.com/profiles/blog/show?id=806765%3ABlogPost%3A5562
  • Digital Citizenship education starts at a young age as we cover all of the aspects of digital citizenship with elementary education including topics of access, safety, digital citizenship, etc. in walled gardens or by adopting a webkinz and moving towards open participation in educational spaces during the high school years.
  • But the question remains, why do we need to change? My husband always says that the only people who like change are babies with dirty diapers and even then, they cry the whole time! (click on the baby for the Movie.)
  • And that is what I suggest for you to do today. Your assignment for this webinar today is to come up with your “Big Three” at the end of the webinar. Pick three things – start there!
