  • With the EdTech Cohort we sought out to systematically support the development of 21st century teachers.
  • Last point -> Digital natives experienced a system of education that was traditional in nature - 21st Century tools, methods and pedagogies of learning and teaching are new for them. People assume because of their age, they are equipped. They aren't.
  • Modeling plays a critical role in preparing teacher candidates to integrate technology in their teaching (Fleming, Motamedi & May, 2001) -> hence, it was key that one of the components was to include a practicing teacher, both as an instructor, and in the field...
  • As the year progressed, students began to use non-traditional methods in their teaching and learning. TRANSITION..... using FLIKR for storytelling, LIVESCRIBE for audio feedback, Video demonstrations, integration of gaming, and project based learning methods as part of lesson delivery. I observed one teacher candidate teach grade two students about the KILOMETER. She videotaped herself leaving school front doors, getting in car, driving through local community until she reached the grocery story. She then replayed the video on the smartboard, while students all held imaginary driving wheels. Without leaving the classroom, the could FEEL and EXPERIENCE a KILIMOTRE.

  • (first picture) We knew it was important that from the onset to model creativity as instructors and in order to do this, TRUST and RELATIONSHIP building were vital. Students needed to feel safe to take risks, be vulnerable, to push the envelope of possibilities- to think outside the box. To be open- minded. A tough one (with an educator lens)- when on Day ONE, most of them were coming to us with a traditional mindset about education and pedagogy. CLICK TO transition --> Quick Story - WEEK ONE , (August 30), Students found and decorated a ROCK (yes, a rock). We gave 2 hours for this - what appeared to be "simple" activity. But- by being deliberate in the structure and nature, we set the stage for the ensuing weeks. We used this activity to start where they were and then build from it. Providing time, resources, modeling and support and student exploration became something more than just "decorating a rock"because we used the notion (their notion) of creativity to help them begin their discussions and explorations of 21st Century learning. We started from the familiar and transitioning to new territory. Opportunity to connect creativity with technolgy --- As the year progressed, students began to use non-traditional methods in their teaching and learning.

  • Teaching new (or experienced) teachers to rethink what education is, to question past practice, to embrace new pedagogies (ones that are changing), to learn new ways of using familiar tools, to question status-quo, to accept new forms of literacies... Isn't this what we are all aiming to do as 21st Century leaders, researchers, consultants? Using collaborative tools and combining blended learning with Face to Face discussion, and ongoing coaching (both via instructors and the online community) students were constantly challenged. Challenged to work and reflect in a public zone, to share with educators beyond the clasroom walls, to find balance with their online digital footprints.

  • Zoe will narrate as video is playing. (2. 5 minutes) Teachers from Ontario, Canada, and International responded to our request for Online Educational Coaches for pre-service students. Teachers, principals, consultants, leaders - partnered with one preservice student and guided them through blogging, twittering, and online networking. In order using twitter, blogs, and feeling authentic, they needed encouragement from more then just the feedback they get from their instructors and immediate instructors. So, by connecting them with practicing teacher (like you) to encourage, retweet, follow, respond, comment – that in itself has made a huge difference. Students feel empowered to attend professional development that pertains more to their needs, to chats that expand across our nation and beyond (edcamp conferences, online chats). This has helped them integrate into the Global network of educators. For instance, the use of Google Plus – where they have gravitated to creating circles and collaborative communities between themselves as well. Really, the VAT and the use of social media is about helping them to faciliate a balance between online and face to face relationships as it pertains mentoring, coaching and leadership. The fact that these students can have face to face supports in class that can continue as they go out in the field, in the class, to me is going to make all the difference when approaching Professional Learning Communities within their schools. This is Shawn – one of the Junior Intermediate students.

  • Rationale• Every province has created a plan to transform their students into 21st century learners, but few have a plan to transform their educators into 21st century teachers.• The stand-alone educational technology course still serves as the primary means of preservice teacher preparation in technology" (Lambert & Gong, 2010).
  • RationaleDigital natives are NOT intrinsically inclined tointegrate technology or embrace 21st centuryteaching.•The integration of 21st century skills, technology andlearning has not yet been addressed in a systematic way ineither preservice or in-service teacher education (Jensen,2010).
