  • Best Practices
    January 19th and 20th
  • Point/CounterPoint Assignment
    Point/CounterPoint DebateYou will design, develop, research and present an engaging debate on a current topic in education technology. You will work with one or two other people to develop your debate. The debate will be presented in class for 50 minutes (an additional 10 minutes will be used for question/answer at the end of the debate). You are not required to use technology in your debate, but are strongly encouraged to be creative in the structure (in the past people have used puppets, created movies or slideshows, done skits, or even dressed up). You are required to show all sides of the issue (some issues have three or four perspectives, so make sure these are represented). In addition, you MUST include at least 2 pieces of key research and/or statistics revolving around the issue. Topics for debate:
    Are Internet Filters Helping or Harming?
    Should Student Cell Phones be Used in Classroom Instruction?
    Can Video Games Be Used to Teach?
    Should Social Networking be Used in Classroom Instruction?
    Is PowerPoint Harming Our Students?
    Is Technology Necessary for School Learning?
    Should All Schools Use Open Source Software?
    Are Virtual Schools An Appropriate Alternative to Face to Face Instruction?
    Are 1:1 Laptop Programs Helping Students Learn?

  • 9 Things Learned for Teaching Online
    Teaching online is a lot of work.
    Students appreciate regular communication and timely feedback on their progress.
    Many great tools exist but aren't always necessary.
    Assignments and activities take more time online.
    Students need extrinsic motivation.
    Give deadlines.
    Online courses are not right for all students.
    Ask students what works and what doesn't.
    Teaching online can inform what you do in the classroom if you have opportunities to teach both online and classroom-based courses.
