    • Web 2.0: Chapter 2
    •  Today’s students are likely to be a wired generation and today’s teachers and parents are asking for help from younger kids and even their children Technology affects how we live, communicate, when and where, and how we learn
    •  Netdays findings include: ◦ Communication is a key motivator for students and drives their use of technology for learning and personal use. ◦ We can see this is true by the percents that are given towards 21st century students
    •  71 % of American house holds have web access Americans aged 13-24 spend more time online than TV 65% of students in grades 6-12 use email, personal pages, and instant messenger every day 79% play video games Only 43% shop- MYSPACE – there were 100 million users by the time Myspace celebrated their 3rd anniversary( All of these percents show that having digital technology at their fingertips all the time means that students think, work, and play differently from previous generations)* Young people are always ahead of the curve
    •  Even though people use technology in their everyday lives to communicate, what is being communicated is sometimes a problem- Whenever there is a new a popular site, many kids tend to use that site every day, and listen and believe exactly what they see.- Because of this, it can lead to people embellishing the truth, and therefore causing a mass amount of people to believe a lie, and then spread around false information to the rest of the population. These has caused parents and schools to block access to certain websites to try to prevent the spread of false information Its proven that preschool children are the fastest growing group online
    •  Advertisements Advice Dating School Youtube Music
    •  Students find the use of technology more enjoyable, and thus more educational, when they are able to customize the computers In the classroom, allow students to choose their method of presentation, where they find their information, and what methods helps them learn the best
    •  Studies show that students learn better when there is a one-on-one student to computer ratio Bloom’s Taxonomy, that illustrates the cognitive processes involved in learning, has been updated to adapt to students’ changing mental processes
    •  Web Tools help with constructivism because students have a larger access to research, collaborate information through wikis, and illustrate with photos and videos in order provide a more effective and creative product Technology facilitates better project based activities because students can collaborate with adults and peers, manage work, engage in valuable activities, and work as a team
    •  Combining connectivism and constructivism in class gives students the opportunity to gain 21st century skills.
    •  Today, education goals are focused on testing rather than higher level thinking and more meaningful learning Inaccurate measurements of intelligence are the product of standardized testing Instruction is narrowed down to just test materials
