  • (Time: 2 mins.) I will introduce the topic that I am going to discuss today. I will explain that I have learned about some wonderful new tools that Librarians might want to know about, so that they can use them or share them with other faculty/teachers in their building. I will also explain that these tools are appropriate to be used in middle schools.
  • (Time: 3-4mins.) I will have a quick overview of what I will be going over in this presentation. I will be sharing six different technological tools that could be used in upper grade levels. I will name the different tools and then tell my audience that I will be explaining each tool to them and what they are. I will also let my audience know that I plan to give them ways to integrate these tools to fit curriculum. I will tell my audience that I am taking them on a 30 min. journey through Technology!
  • (Time: 2 Min.) I will introduce myself and a little bit about me, so my audience know who I am and why I am presenting new tools that they could use. I will explain that I learned all of these new tools in one of my masters classes and found them to be creative. I will explain my avatar and how I created this from the following site. I will not be discussing avatars today, but this picture will still give my audience an idea of what an avatar is.
  • (Time 3-4mins.)I will introduce the first tool and will explain what a QR code is. I will then show the two min. youtube video, so my audience has a better idea of what a QR code is.
  • (Time: 3 mins.) I will explain on this slide how QR codes could be used throughout a library. A code could be posted by the checkout center for students to find important checkout procedures. A code could also be posted near technology, such as computers in the library. These codes could explain the login process or any other rules for the computer use. Other codes could be used throughout the library, instead of placing signs everywhere. QR codes could also be posted inside books, for students to scan to view book reviews if they want to have more information.
  • (Time 2 mins.) I will mention on this slide that these QR codes in schools obviously would only work if students have access to I-pads or use of a camera phone in the school building. Some schools allow students to bring their own device to school. These rules vary from school to school.
  • (Time: 5-6mins. ) I will go over the second way QR codes could be used in schools. They could be used in the beginning of the school year. I will explain how it can help students to get to know their school or library by doing a scavenger hunt with QR codes that take them to different locations to become familiar with their school. Students could also have QR code name tags the first week of school and students would need to scan each others to get to know one another. Each code would have information about each student that either they created or the teacher put together. The teacher could also have QR codes posted around his or her classroom for the students to scan to get to know the rules and procedures of the class. Lastly, the codes could even be used to quiz students on content they know so far coming into a new grade. The teacher could post questions in all codes and the students would have to answer them. This would give the teacher a general idea of where each student is at academically. Lastly, I will show part of the Youtube video to give my audience a general idea of how the Codes were used for a school’s scavenger hunt.
  • (Time: 3 mins.) Students can also create their own QR code very easily. They could create them in all subject areas. Specifically for English, they could read a book and then create a code with their own review for others to view. For other subjects, such as History or Science, a Code could be made for presentations full of information. Codes could also be created for projects to store a groups important information, websites, or videos. Students could even be given a certain question and then would need to place their correct answer in their own QR code. I will direct my audience to three links they could use to create free QR codes. I will tell my audience that these websites are on their handout in front of them.
  • (Time: 4-5 mins.) I will explain the second tool that I want to share with the audience, which is geocaching. I will go over what geocaching is and what you need to complete the task. I will then show a quick video on geocaching, so my audience gets a better idea of what it is.
  • (Time: 2 mins.) I will discuss how Geocaching could be great for Math classes. Math Problems could be written up and hidden. Each group would have different coordinates to find, so it could become a race to solve a problem. Each Coordinate would be one step to solving the multi-step math problem.
  • (Time: 2 mins.) I will discuss how Geocaching could be used in History classes. It teaches Coordinates to students and how to use them. It also teaches Geography and the use of maps on GPS systems. Also, teachers could hide certain objects in locations that exhibit what the Oregon Trail would have felt like or other important time periods in history. I will then direct my audience to the following website that has several history ideas for geocaching. This link will also be on their handout in front of them.
  • (Time 2 mins.) I will discuss how geocaching could be used in an English class or in a library. For English, a teacher could hide questions based on a short story or novel to review for a test. A teacher could also place different elements of a story in different hiding spots. The students would need to find them and then place them in order from beginning to end. Lastly, I will discuss how librarians could hide questions about the library for the students to answer after they have visited the school library and have learned all of the rules/procedures.
  • (Time 3 mins.) I will discuss what an Infographic is. I will state that it is a visual representation that gives important information. I will explain how it takes the place of reading about a certain topic in a book. Infographics are easier to gain quick information about a topic and they are more appealing to students, then simply reading about a topic. I will then show a short video on Infographics to give my audience more of an idea of what this tool is.
  • (Time: 3 min.) I will show my audience these three examples of infographics. I will take the time now to ask my audience questions. I will ask them which one they find to be easier to read and gain information. The answer would be the “Threats to Wild Life,” since the information is not overwhelming like the other two infographics. Then, I will ask which infographic is the most difficult to gain information. The answer will be “Mobile Phone,” since there is too much information on this one infographic. Lastly, I will ask which infographic would appeal most to students. The answer will be either “Phones” or “Facebook and Twitter.” I will also take the time to discuss the elements to these infographics (color, pictures, data, and title).
  • (Time: 2-3 mins.) I will discuss how an Infographic could be used in schools for students to learn more about a certain topic. They could view an infographic for English based on popular novels in 2012, to find out which novels were rated the best. Students could also view infographics for Science based on the weather patterns in the U.S. Another Infographic could give a student information on a historical time period or event. It could also show the difference in cultures throughout the world, which goes along with geography. I will mention that a great activity for the students to do, would be for them to search online for one infographic based on a certain topic and then share it with the class. This way there are several infographics that the class will view.
  • (Time: 2 mins.) I will discuss how students can create their own infographic on a topic. This project would be great because it does teach the research process. Students would have to research their topic before they could begin to create an infographic. However, the students do have free range in how they want to present their research. They can be very creative. I will also go over the three websites that I posted to create free infographics. I will direct my audience to their handout at this time, since these websites are listed on there.
  • (Time 2 mins.) I will discuss how Infographics could be used for several other reasons that could be fun or exciting. Teachers could use an infographic as a warm-up to a lesson. By viewing an infographic, this might grab the attention of a lot of students. It is a great way to start discussing a topic in class. Another way infographics could be used in class, is if students create one about themselves. Then, students could share their infographic with the class, so students get to know one another better in the first weeks of school. Lastly, infographics could also be used to present important information about a school to parents, the community, or the staff itself on open house night or staff days. An infographic could even be printed in the school newspaper/letter.
  • (Time: 3-4 mins) I will discuss what a voice thread is. I will tell my audience that there are several different types of voice threads. There are programs that could record your own voice by telephone or microphone or you could type a message and choose a voice that you like to say your own message. Also, I will explain how some programs have recordings only and how other programs have avatars you can create that state your message. Lastly, there are programs where you post a document, presentation, or picture and have others view it and then add a VoiceThread commenting on it. I will then show the short video on voice threads explaining the collaboration VoiceThread.
  • (Time 3 mins.) I will discuss how a VoiceThread could be used in schools. One way is to collaborate with fellow students. A teacher could post a document, infographic, diagram, or many other items related to a core subject onto the website, www. voicethread.com. Then, students in one class can meet at this page on the website and will record themselves speaking about the topic or towards other student’s comments. A picture of themselves will be shown, so students know who is talking. Then, I will direct my audience towards the website that is on the screen and on their handout.
  • (Time: 3 mins.) On this slide I will discuss how VoiceThreads can be used for student presentations and introductions. Students who do not like to present in front of a class, can record themselves talking on a VoiceThread and present this instead. Also, in the beginning of the school year, teachers could get their students to create their own Avatar VoiceThreads about themselves. Students could play their VoiceThreads, so everyone gets to know each other better. Then, I will show my audience the two other forms of VoiceThreads, that do not contain collaboration. I will show my audience the website that creates VoiceThread recordings only and the website that creates Avatar VoiceThreads. These two websites would be best used for presentations and projects!
  • (Time 4 mins.) I will discuss how VoiceThreads are great for foreign language classes in schools. Students can practice recording themselves speaking in Spanish or French and can go back to listen to themselves. Also, students could converse back and fourth by asking questions and answering in a foreign language, which is helpful practice. Lastly, a lot of VoiceThreads or Audio Recordings online give the option to change the English to a different language. This would be a great tool for those students who are just starting out with a foreign language. They could hear how something would be translated. After discussing this topic, I would show a short video of students using VoiceThreads for a Foreign Language.
  • (Time 3 mins.) I will discuss on this slide what Image Editors are and what they can create. I will explain how there are several different editing programs that offer different techniques. I will tell my audience that I will give them several different websites and programs that offer different things. Some Image Editor programs can only add special effects to pictures or eliminate certain things to a picture. Then, there are some programs that can take a photo and create something with it, such as booklets, movie posters, magazine covers, and a lot more. I will then show just part of this video of an Image Editing program, called Pixlr. My audience will be able to see some of the techniques that a program like this can do to a photo.
  • (Time 2 mins.) I will discuss the use of Image Editors in schools on this slide. I will specifically discuss the website, Foldplay. On this website students can create different types of foldables and booklets with pictures/images. It could be used for all subjects. Students could create a booklet for Historical events using images and text. It also could be used for English to create a story using images and text. This program could also be used to create a foldable for Science demonstrating all of the planets. Lastly, it could even be used for math foldable that show the step by step process of a math problem. I will direct my audience to this website that is on the screen and on their handout.
  • (Time 2 mins.) I will discuss how an Image Editing program called, Big Huge Labs could be used to create projects for all subjects. This program could be used to create movie posters for an English novel. A magazine cover could be made for an Historical event or time period. Maps and puzzles could be created for Math or Science topics. Also Photo Collages and Personalized CD covers could be made as well with photos. I will then explain how one teacher I worked with had her History class create their own CD with music that went along with the curriculum topic. They had to create their own CD cover and this would have been a great source to use for her project. Then, I will direct my audience to the website link that is on their handout and the slide. I will tell my audience that this is a movie poster that I created from the following website, so they can get an idea what their students could use this for.
  • (Time 2 Mins.) I will discuss how Image Editors are great to use in schools to add special effects to photos for projects. Many schools use programs such as Photo Story or Movie Maker and both of these use photos. Students could use a program such as, Tuxipi.com to make their photos more interesting. I will then direct my audience to my family photo that I created on Tuxipi.com. I changed the color, made a title, and gave it a painted effect look. I will direct the audience to the website name on the slide and on their handout.
  • (Time 3-4 mins.) I will discuss what Digital Storytelling is. I will explain that it is the creation of a very short story, maybe 2 to 3 minutes long. It is created on the web and then could later be posted to a blog, website, facebook, or even downloaded to a CD. I will explain that every Digital Storytelling program is different and offers different things. I will explain that some digital storytelling programs offer recording, music, or video, but not all of them. Some only include pictures and text. I will then direct my audience to a short video on the topic.
  • (Time 2 mins.) I will discuss how digital storytelling could be used in schools. This slide I will discuss the program, simplebooklet.com. This website can create Brochures, flyers, booklets, newsletters, and mini web sites. All of these tools would be great for projects in all subject areas. I then will direct my audience to the website link that is on the slide and their handout. I will discuss the features of this site and what the students can do by adding videos, pictures, music, or text to a Digital Brochure or Newsletter. I will lastly discuss how when the students are completed with their product they could easily share their story with the class on an overhead.
  • (Time 2 to 3 mins.) I will discuss another example of Digital Storytelling that could be used in the schools. DomoAnimate.com is a great website to create a comic strip for English, History, or Science topics. Students could even create a comic in a foreign language. Students are starting to enjoy graphic novels more and more these days, so of course students would love to create their own graphic short story on the web. Students can choose characters, props, music, and of course their story they want to tell. Once, their comic is complete then everyone can view their story. I will then direct my audience to the website that is on my slide and on their handout. I will probably click on this link, for everyone to see what the website looks like.
  • (Time 3 mins.) I will discuss the last way that Digital Storytelling could be used in schools. StoryBird.com is a great website that could be used for English or a Foreign language. It challenges the students to be creative and to create a story with all of the plot elements. Students have to choose a picture first and get an inspiration from it. Students can choose pictures by theme or challenges. Then, students start writing their short story. This program does not have audio. It only has pictures to choose from and text to write a story. At the end, the product looks like a digital book that flips pages. It can be published to the web. Lastly, I will direct my students to the website on the slide and on their handout. I will discuss the picture real quick and tell my audience that the students would have several pictures to choose from, as they can see on the screen shot.
  • (Time: few Seconds) Discuss how these are my annotations for my research and PowerPoint slide.
  • (Time: few Seconds) Discuss how these are my annotations for my research and PowerPoint slide.
  • (Time: few Seconds) Discuss how these are my annotations for my research and PowerPoint slide.
  • (Time: few Seconds) Discuss how these are my annotations for my research and PowerPoint slide.
  • (Time 3mins.) I will discuss the Bookmarking site I created for the audience. I will explain where they will need to go to access this website. Also, I will tell them that all of the videos, links, and programs I discussed today will be added to this one website for them to access. I will also tell them that I have added extra helpful links for them to view. I will click on this bookmarking site for my audience to see how to access it.
  • (Time 4mins.) I will ask my audience if they have any questions. Especially questions on the six tools, ways they could be used in schools, or on any of the websites I shared. I will also take any other questions the audience may have at this time.
  • (Time 1 min.) I will thank my audience for listening to my presentation and hope that they all use these tools and have a fun time with them. I will also tell my audience to contact me if they have questions or would even like to share their own experience with using one of these tools. I will direct my audience to my information on the slide and on their handout.
