  • 3. Intro
    • Name
    • Where do you work
    • What do you do
    • How comfy are you with integrating educational technology into classrooms?
  • 4. A Vision of Students Today youtube video
    • Background: A college professor started a collaborative online project using Google Docs.
    • Students surveyed themselves by answering this question
    • “What is it like being a student today?”
    • This video shows the results of what typical college students are like.
  • 5. It’s only fair…
    • What do teachers have to deal with when trying to work with ‘digital natives?’

    • Make our own video??
  • 6. How easy is it to make a Youtube video? Point and Shoot by Pure Digital Smart Wonder by RCA
  • 7.
    • Academic videos are on TeacherTube –finding the right video is easier
    • Google video and TeacherTube get most of their videos from YouTube—will still be blocked
    • Zamzar will convert videos from google and Youtube but NOT Teacher tube. www.zamzar.com (don’t forget to show them email and video)
    • Bottom line is, you will have to be able to work from a computer that isn’t blocked.
  • 8. 21 st Century Skills
    • Why did I choose this list?
    • “ Advances in the cognitive sciences show that learning increases significantly when students are engaged in academic study through authentic, real-world experiences . The enGauge 21st Century Skills build on extensive bodies of research – as well as on calls from government, business, and industry for higher levels of workplace readiness – to define clearly what students need to thrive in today’s Digital Age.”

    • Are teachers in your District aware of 21 Century skills?
    • Are they implementing them in their classrooms?
    • How can you use them in your class or how can you help teachers use them in their classroom?
