  28. 28. WHAT WE OFFER
  29. 29. Strategies to Consider1. Start teaching with networked technologies and information2. Look for ways to make technologies RE-humanizing ratherthan de-humanizing3. Foster active, higher-level learning4. Model human interactions via technology5. Design learning activities in which students meaningfullyinteract via technologies6. Become a learner within digital info-abundant environment7. Learn to surf the (info) wave8. Learn when to use/re-mix information resources9. See knowledge/learning as “perpetual beta”See http://bit.ly/thompson_csu2012
  30. 30. Strategies to Consider1. Start teaching with networked technologies and information2. Look for ways to make technologies RE-humanizing rather than de-humanizing3.

See knowledge/learning as “perpetual beta”See http://bit.ly/thompson_csu2012
  31. 31. Look for ways to make technologies RE-humanizing rather than de-humanizing• give every student a voice via technology (e.g.,discussion forum, blog, VoiceThread, BYOT/D)• give everyone access via technology (practiceUniversal Design for Learning; anticipateaccommodations)• take an assignment and make it social viatechnology (e.g., not just an audience of one;not just locked up in a course managementsystem)
  32. 32. Considerations
  33. 33. BYOD?• Some studies indicate that 95% of collegestudents bring cell phones to class each day- May, 2012• Nationwide, 88% of adults have cell phones withthe majority (55%) using for internet access• 61% of US adults own a laptop computer- Pew Internet & American Life Project, 2012http://bit.ly/pew_data http://bit.ly/may_data
  34. 34. Ethical/Legal Issues• Privacy• FERPA• Accessibility
  35. 35. FERPA Recommendations• Assume conservative FERPA interpretation• All official communications (including grades)in CMS• FERPA/Web2.0 statements in coursedocuments• No required personally identifiable informationon public webhttp://bit.ly/ferpa_coursedocs
  36. 36. Accessibility Recommendations• Adopt a “universal design for learning” mindset.• Assume you will have accommodation needs.– Select new media/technologies with accessibility in mind.– Think: “What will I do differently to make old accessible?• Plan A: Do that now (e.g., script everything).• Plan B: Be prepared to take action when needed.• Assume that it is all up to you.– Educate yourself.– Take initiative.– Be grateful when help is available.http://bit.ly/online_accessibility
  37. 37. Cautions• Time commitment (beware of diminishingreturns)• Some students resist “active learning”• Your results may vary– Strive for balance– Keep It Simple Starting (KISS)

  39. 39. A Personal Action Plan• Reflect upon today’s session• Identify at least one idea you can put intoaction• Write down how you will apply the idea• Tell one other person what you plan to do• Exchange contact info and plan to touch base
  40. 40. Keep the Conversation Going• What success stories do you have in “connecting” withstudents using technologies?• What new ideas have you encountered?• What obstacles do you see in implementing particulartechnologies in your courses?• What new technologies/strategies are crossing your path?HootCourse: Share links/ideas in micropostings:http://bit.ly/hootcourse_rehumanizingEditable GoogleDoc: Share insights, notes, or resources as youwish: http://bit.ly/sharing_rehumanizing
