  39. 39. + 24 Online activity pyramid: by generation The vast majority of online adults from all generations uses email and search engines. While there are always exceptions, older generations typically do not engage with the internet past e-commerce. The majority of teens and GenY use SNS, but fewer maintain blogs. Online adults older than Gen X are less likely to use SNS. Basic online entertainment (online videos, playing games) E-commerce (online shopping, banking, and travel reservations) Research and information gathering (product research, news, health and religious information searches) Email and search Active engagement with social media (visit SNS, create SNS profile, create blogs) More advanced online entertainment (download videos, music and podcasts) More advanced communication and passive social media use (instant messaging, visit SNS, read blogs) State of the Internet 2009: Pew Internet Project Findings and Implications for Libraries 39Wednesday, October 21, 2009
  40. 40. + Project Tomorrow Speak Up Day Recommendations  Un-tether learning and leverage mobile devices to extend learning beyond the school day and meet all learners in their own world  Create new interactive, participatory learning spaces using tools such as online classes, gaming and simulations, online tutors, and virtual reality environments  Incorporate Web 2.0 tools into daily instruction especially those that develop collaborative or social-based learning and provide unique opportunities for students to be content developers  Expand digital resources in the classroom to add context and relevancy to learning experiences through new media tools  Get beyond the classroom walls and make learning truly experiential such as using high tech science instrumentation and creating podcasts with content experts 40Wednesday, October 21, 2009

  42. 42. (c) Project Tomorrow 2009 Let’s add some context: Thinking about your students: How did they use technology within learning and instruction in their K-12 lives? Based upon those experiences, what are their expectations for your classrooms? 42Wednesday, October 21, 2009
  43. 43. (c) Project Tomorrow 2009 What grade where they in . . . when we reached the 90% Internet access in K12 classrooms? Class of 2009 – just graduated seniors 10th grade in high school Class of 2011 – your current 3rd year students 8th grade in middle school Class of 2013 – your current incoming freshman 6th grade in middle school Are they really “digital natives?” 43Wednesday, October 21, 2009
  44. 44. (c) Project Tomorrow 2009 Let’s think about your future students: Class of 2015 – incoming to 11th grade Class of 2017 – incoming to 9th grade Class of 2019 – incoming to 7th grade How digitally native are these students? What are their expectations for learning? 44Wednesday, October 21, 2009
  45. 45. (c) Project Tomorrow 2009 What grade where they in . . . when we reached 90% Internet access in K12 classrooms? Class of 2015 – incoming to 11th grade 4th grade in elementary school Class of 2017 – incoming to 9th grade 2nd grade Class of 2019 – incoming to 7th grade Kindergarten Are you ready for these students and their expectations for you? 45Wednesday, October 21, 2009
  46. 46. + Implications for Schools  Increases the need for targeted, sustained, and thoughtful professional development.  How are you meeting the needs of adult learners with very different learning styles?  Necessitates strategic human capital planning  Requires schools to think of skills sets needed by students at various points in their academic careers while gauging the future of technology.  How are you preparing to students in relation to changing technology?  How is your school changing to meet the new needs and desires of students?  How are you balancing student engagement and rigor? 46Wednesday, October 21, 2009

  48. 48. + The Pedagogical Shift  New models of teaching and learning are emerging  Rigorous content + 21st century themes  “Sage on the stage” to “guide on the side”  New literacies need to be taught strategically  Examples:  developing a search mentality  Student personal learning networks (PLNs)  Standards and accountability aren’t going away  Assessments need improvement  A return to constructivism  Going global is easy 48Wednesday, October 21, 2009

  58. 58. + So What ?  Social networks: You must be open to at least letting your kids drive the technology use in your classrooms. Be willing to engage them in the ways that they learn best.  Generational diversity: Change is not going to happen without schools working as teams to look at longitudinal goals.  21st century skills: The art of teaching comes through via the weaving of 21st century themes into core content. You need to give guidance and thought to classroom activities.  Learning environments: Just as we’ve looked at the whole child, we need to start emphasizing the whole learning environment. Personalized learning for both students and teachers is important. 58Wednesday, October 21, 2009
