  • Start the video at 10 mins before we start. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tahTKdEUAPk 1. Shifts around us – teachers need to be prepared to these changes.
  • Here is an animation about copyright terms: http://www.cyberbee.com/cb_copyright.swf
  • NOTE : If needed, we can allow students to use no more than 3 online images if necessary.
  • [Instructors add feedback on this slide]
  • ULA explains how to find images for the digital story project. we are going to ask the students to create their own images. However, we are giving the copyright information if they would like to use three of them from free online images.
  • ULA explains how to find images for the digital story project. we are going to ask the students to create their own images. However, we are giving the copyright information if they would like to use three of them from free online images.
  • Bring ALL your images & narration mp3 file in your flash drive to the class next week (Week 4)
  • --Explain the students how they should keep their files before they start producing the actual movie.
  • To address the rapid changes in technology, instruction, and learning environments, ISTE recently led a collaborative, international effort to refresh the NETS. For more information : http://www.iste.org/standards.aspx
  • http://www.iste.org/standards/nets-for-teachers/nets-for-teachers-2008.aspx
  • optional
  • Explain the purpose and expectations of this page.
  • Formal PD is required to renew your teaching license in Indiana (and Georgia) Indiana – must have 90 points in 5 years. No requirements of how much from where… PGP : Professional Growth Plan How to select the professional development opportunities that are most effective for you as a teacher: Consider the needs and learning styles Present information in authentic contexts with direct links to classrooms and provide feedback while teachers try new strategies in their classrooms Allow time for reflection and experience Social in nature, allowing teachers to interact with colleagues and mentors Present practical step-by-step to solve a problem, not just new ideas that require complete transformation Focus on tools that teachers use for their own productivity Present information in a variety of formats Made at the teachers level. Same grade and content so they don ’t have to revise to use later Continue over time. Once isn ’t enough. Options Maximum Points Point Value Sample Verifications Criteria (goal related, completed) There are two types of PD. This is the formal kind, the kind you have to prove in order to renew your license. Does anybody know how many hours they need to renew? The system is different in GA. A college course, for example, is 3 points there, and you need 10 points every 6 or 7 years. There is also informal PD- reading books and journals, attending teacher collaboration meetings, etc. In GA, you need 20 hours of this kind per year (almost anything counts), and you don ’t have to prove it- just provide documentation of what you did.
  • AI review these websites- We don ’t have a hands on activity anymore.
  • Do you need to have an online presence as a teacher? This is where the world is headed. Why should teachers not have a website?
  • When asked about which technology tools would be a good investment to drive student achievement, only 20 percent of parents identified collaboration tools (such as blogs, social networking sites, wikis, etc.) and only one-third selected communications tools (such as email, IM and text messaging). Yet, the highest ranked technology for investment in the parents ’ perspective was a school website or portal with 60 percent of the parents selecting it as their top choice for driving student achievement.
  • Homesick: l et him (and others like him) know what the current homework assignment  Distant relations.  Your students have relatives all over Friends from all over.  Connecting with classrooms from around the world is a great way for your students to learn about far away lands and kids from other countries. Reading and Writing and ...  A classroom web page gives your students an opportunity to write stories and opinions Parents and Guardians.  Is there an important letter going home? A field trip next week? Perhaps you are currently seeking parent volunteers to help out with that art project next month.  Events.   A web page is a great way to publicize what it is that you are up to -- and why.  Links . Did your students find any information on the Internet? Well great! List the links and archive them on a classroom website. It'll come in handy next year.  Feedback.  A web page lets people from all over see what your students have accomplished and send comments and questions instantly Show and Tell.  Strut your stuff! If your students have just finished creating a classroom mural that is, well, magnificent, wouldn't it be a shame to keep that from the rest of the world? Let folks know about it!  Memories . Teachers see so many faces coming in and out of their classrooms. Wouldn't it be lovely to keep a visual record of all the wonderful things your students said, did and learned throughout the year? Oh wait ... you can. A classroom web page.
  • Keep It Simple! Ask students “what is the most simple and useful website of the world?”. Answer: Google But there are a lot more
  • Keep it professional Google Sites will take care of most of this for you, but… DESIGN a lot has been said about it. This is where it gets tricky: It ’s about your design sensibility – your sense of aesthetics It cannot be taught AND you are NOT a graphic designer or a web designer So here are a few things to keep in mind: Visually appealing Creative and original Clear page goals Easy to access and use Technically sound (no broken links, ‘under construction’ etc.) Provide clear and simple headlines and page titles. Avoid page elements that move constantly. Do not include sounds that play automatically. Minimize scrolling. Never expect users to scroll more than three screen lengths. Keep paragraphs short and page sizes small. Limit image sizes to fewer than 20k each. Avoid overly-busy or multi-colored backgrounds. Leave lots of white space. Limit animations. Use the same font throughout. Stick to universal fonts. Maintain the site and update it regularly.
  • Use smart board clickers and ask students to find the best and bad website examples. Ask students to take notes why they choose the example as best or bad.
  • The students are exposed to some teacher website example already. Ask them what components are critical to a teacher website.
  • Newsletter page will be used as an announcement page for the teacher website.
  • See the example: https://sites.google.com/site/mjbailsteach/newsletter
