Chalkboard Projects (when technology works, and when it doesn't)

  1. 1. Chalkboard Projects When technology works (and when it doesn’t)
  2. 2. Let’s multitask Draw four straight lines without picking up your pen so that you pass through all the dots once.
  3. 3. Let’s multitask Fail Draw four straight lines without picking up your pen so that you pass through all the dots once.

  11. 11. The Chalk Board Then: • Innovative teaching tool • Rapidly adopted • Changed teaching & learning
  12. 12. The Chalk Board Then: • Innovative teaching tool • Rapidly adopted • Changed teaching & learning • Probably showcased at Parent’s Night
  13. 13. The Chalk Board Then: Now: • Innovative teaching tool • Rapidly adopted • Changed teaching & learning • Probably showcased at Parent’s Night
  14. 14. The Chalk Board Then: Now: • Innovative teaching tool • No longer viewed as innovative • Rapidly adopted • Changed teaching & learning • Probably showcased at Parent’s Night
  15. 15. The Chalk Board Then: Now: • Innovative teaching tool • No longer viewed as innovative • Rapidly adopted • Widely used • Changed teaching & learning • Probably showcased at Parent’s Night
  16. 16. The Chalk Board Then: Now: • Innovative teaching tool • No longer viewed as innovative • Rapidly adopted • Widely used • Changed teaching & learning • Price of doing business • Probably showcased at Parent’s Night
  17. 17. The Chalk Board Then: Now: • Innovative teaching tool • No longer viewed as innovative • Rapidly adopted • Widely used • Changed teaching & learning • Price of doing business • Probably showcased at • We need something Parent’s Night cooler for Parent’s Night

  31. 31. The Challenge of Mysteries • Too much information • Fluid and plural • Absence of an outcome may be the outcome • Need ‘framing’ rather than ‘solving’ • Technology and good teaching lead to results
  32. 32. The Challenge of Mysteries • Too much information • Fluid and plural • Absence of an outcome may be the outcome • Need ‘framing’ rather than ‘solving’ • Technology and good teaching lead to results

  34. 34. Puzzle Solution
  35. 35. Puzzle Solution
  36. 36. What happened? • Who solved the puzzle? • Who used the internet? • Who worked it out for themselves? • Who shared the answer with others? • Who “cheated?” • Compare this experience to the workplace • Compare this experience to our classrooms
  37. 37. Now what? • Technology lets us solve puzzles easily • Puzzles aren’t as interesting as they used to be • Technology can engage our learners • But many things can’t be taught this way
  38. 38. Framing mysteries using effective tools has always been good teaching.
