Transcript of "Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space... Imagine!"

  1. 1. Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space... Imagine the power! How to: "Leave No Child Behind" FOR REAL by enabling the kids to change the world!
  2. 2. Imagine... ... if every student had a personal Confluence Wiki space to do their work from Grade 1 >> highschool, in their Wiki space...   ... growing and evolving, showing progression -- sometimes pushing beyond their grade levels   ... skies no-limit progression often; over time, 8+ years of DATA and knowledge collected Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space... Imagine the power!
  3. 3. Imagine... ... if ALL students were so excited about their Wiki space, they continually worked on it while not in the classroom -- highly engaged, creating content, making diagrams, flushing ideas, blogging thoughts (private or not), continually improving, creating in-school communities   ... if students' curiosities were spurred endlessly, becoming insightful in knowledge collected, and inspired in knowledge shared Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space... Imagine the power!
  4. 4. Imagine... ... if students learned first-hand about collaboration and mutual human respect, with honesty and trusted ways, endlessly -- through continual share of knowledge, information and good style mentoring by teachers   ... if students learned about what is good, bad, appropriate, and not appropriate early on in their life, in groom for later on when they really need it   ... if shy kids learned how to come out of their shells, and turn their shy into incredible creative genius' online   Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space... Imagine the power!
  5. 5. Imagine... ... if self-esteem and confidence that is so easily shattered on the playground gained ground online, as students grew confidence in their writing, creating, visibility   ... if students learned the benefits (vs. fear) of iterative development    ... if students learned the benefits of transparency and open collaboration, about working through challenges or differences of opinion to learn more vs. avoiding with fear Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space... Imagine the power!
  6. 6. Imagine... ... if teachers created all school curriculums in the Wiki -- openly shared, comments and ideas welcome by the school, students, etc.   ... if teachers' courses were continually improved, grown, evolved, over the years -- staying current, and exportable to Word or PDF, on the fly   ... if teachers grew and learned from students as "partnerships" evolved, as well as lifelong lessons on the value of collaborative partnerships Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space... Imagine the power!
  7. 7. Imagine... ... if teaching became a highly respected and valued profession again in the USA, like it should be (and is still in most other countries)   ... if teachers became excited and engaged to do great teaching through showing their good prowess on the Wiki, openly -- for students, parents, and administrators vs. mostly behind school doors   ... if the teacher/student paradigm changed from "babysitting" unruly kids (in many schools) to respected mutual beneficial relationships Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space... Imagine the power!
  8. 8. Imagine... ... if students failing in reading and writing learned to read and write better because they were constantly doing it and inspired to do it, daily, continually   ... if unmotivated students evolved from loser/slouch students to engaged/promising students because they belonged to creative, supportive, inspiring online communities within the Wiki   ... if students with a troubled home life found an excellent saving outlet and encouragement on the Wiki, daily Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space... Imagine the power!
  9. 9. Imagine... ... if students learned two to three times (or more) what they learn now because online collaboration and content creation speeds progress greatly, through inspired engagement, especially for still-innocent teacher-guided school-age children   ... the developed relations built through supportive collaborative Wiki environments at school, and the value of those relations later in life Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space... Imagine the power!
  10. 10. Imagine... ... if students blogged daily in their Wiki space so schools could:   find "troubled" students sooner, to proactively help  find amazing students sooner, to properly encourage ... if students become better writers, and good values better people, because of daily writing, reading, communications, and introspections   Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space... Imagine the power!
  11. 11. Imagine... ... if students were able to easily publish "jewels" on a web-shared, yet school-controlled CMS, direct from the Wiki (for example, Alfresco CMS, open source doc mgmt system)  ... the online grade-school "resumes" via online google searches, further encouraging the students, and teaching responsible Internet approaches   ... if some of the students became respected authors, poets, and scientists by age 10! Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space... Imagine the power!
  12. 12. Imagine... ... if the too-many-questions challenging students had an outlet for their energies vs. becoming the "bad kid" in the eyes of the teacher (trivialized vs. encouraged to grow)    ... if ADD or hyper-active students had a place of focus for their relentless questions, energy, and research -- and as a better learning alternative to medications (e.g., ritilin)   ... if dyslexic kids were not teased or embarrassed for mixing up letters/words, because they could fix it first!   Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space... Imagine the power!
  13. 13. Imagine... ... if students that year on year fail the state exams and become labeled as "dumb kids", and fail again, all of a sudden beat their challenges and pass, with developed self- esteem fostering their learning   ... if all students learn to type -- a necessary skill for today and tomorrow's world, for just about any job    ... learning beyond book teaching -- through doing it, exploring, researching, collecting, innovating -- endlessly building out the Wiki   Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space... Imagine the power!
  14. 14. Imagine... ... if the "computer whiz" students were not just the privileged ones with parents in the technology fields   ... if all students had a chance to gain good mastery of computers and technology -- at least at a basic level ... if students learned about open-source inventing early on, and some became inventors while in grade school! Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space... Imagine the power!
  15. 15. Imagine... ... if every school in every school district in every city, town, or suburb had its own Wiki system, hosted securely in "the cloud"... with ready administration expertise: to be able to proactively address maintenance to allow for local controls and system management  to keep information local and confidential to each school to enable this entire "imagine" to be REALITY, very quickly Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space... Imagine the power!
  16. 16. Imagine... ... the poster-child school district of success, proving these theories, with improved education for its students that could be tangibly measured likely within the first semester   ... the viral effect to other school districts of the nation   ... the great human and intellectual value that would grow from this for the best of everyone involved. Everyone.   Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space... Imagine the power!
  17. 17. Imagine... ... the great students, teachers, administrators, schools, corporations and nation that inherit and benefit from these school children one day   ... teaching kids collaboration and knowledge sharing via the power of a Wiki - for life, and for the Universe    ... the changed world as a result, for generations beyond Imagine the MANY other great things not on this list! Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space... Imagine the power!
  18. 18. Interested in proving this? There is not a shadow of a doubt on the success of these ideas with proper support (district/school level), and relatively low cost/fast roll-out time to implement.   The return on education advancement, human and societal growth, innovative progress, and much more is limitless -- short and long term.          1+888-516-2890 | www.appfusions.com Imagine if EVERY school-age child had a Wiki Space...
