    Geography
    English Language
    6 teachers
    80 pupils
    One of the first experiments in the world
    Pre-Internet
    TELETRIP
    Conversation Theory
  • 18. Fidonet, EARN, JANET, BITNET
  • 19. From Peter Hyde at Tahltan School in Telegraph Creek, British Columbia, Canada
    6 years ago we didnt even have telephones here and we had to rely on short wave radio, so to be able to send messages in this manner is a big change for us. We only get mail trucked in here once a week, so electronic mail is certainly faster than the regualr mail!!
    The first concept which is very difficult for Europeans to understand about northern B.C. is distance. Our nearest neighbour is a village, 120 km from here. Our population in this village is 350, and our neighbour, Dease Lake, has a population of 400. It is a 770 km drive to our nearest town, called Terrace. It has a population of only 16,000. Along the drive to Terrace you only pass through 3 villages, non with more than 500 people living in them. This is so different from Europe! Imagine driving 770 km from Amsterdam and only passing through three little villages!
  • 20. the first ‘electronic fieldtrip’ with this first ‘letter’ from Donna.
    Hi! My name is Donna. I am 17 and in Grade 9.
    Pretty bad eh?!
    There are no guys or girls my age in this school. As a matter of fact there are only 50 students in this school form age 5 to my age. Just like some of you guys, "I don’t like some of the teachers in this school", but I do like my Teacher, David.
    One thing I don’t like about school is that it starts at 8:45 in the morning.
    My birthday is in January, and I have one brother and a sister who has a son and new baby girl. My mom is in my home town, so my boy friend (21) lives with me at my place. In the future I would like to graduate, then get married and have children, all within the next 3 or 4 years.
    There is not much excitement around this little village, so there is a lot of drinking (I don’t drink any more), so it's nice to have a motorbike or something to keep you amused.
    Bye, Donna.
    P.S. Write soon!!! This is neat!!! Like really Rad!

    Amsterdam
    Großburgwedel
    Lenham
  • 23. First lessons
    When one school uses the mother tongue, and other schools use a foreign language, there is an imbalance. Better is it to use a mutual foreign language: learning effects at all sites.
    Good appointments for frequency of messages
    Balance in ages, in prior knowledge
    Interaction: not only sending messages
    thinkwritereadagainsend|||||
    readreactposequestionssend

    ESP as Umbrella Organisation
    For many many collaborative projects
    For many many initiatives
    Connecting networks
    Connecting countries, schools, teachers, pupils
    Learning of human beings in all their diversity with technology as medium
  • 48. ESP needs active members!!
    A learning Community of Practitioners in Education
    ESP is open to all kinds of bottom-up initiatives around ICT-innovation of education
    Help improve and extend websites
    Develop new and enhance existing content
    Collect new applications of ICT and help spread the news
    Find and motivate new teachers to join
    Become famous 
    Talk to the Board!!!
  • 49. ESP is a network organisation in which international computer supported collaborative learning(CSCL) and teaching is the heart
  • 50. Innovating Education through International ICT-Collaboration
    Schools need to cater for more than the transmission of knowledge, in order to enable young people’s participation in the diverse world in which they live.
    Methodology in Schools needs to be more versatile.
    Every student’s diverse talents need recognition and development.
    Creative collaborative learning supported by ICT.
    Increase motivation by Collaborative International projects for students and teachers.
    Similarities and differences between countries, languages and cultures enable positive life long learning.
    You learn the most of diversity
  • 51. Bridging Intercultural Diversity through Global (CSC)Learning
    1) Schools need sustainable (continuous) innovation to keep in pace with the evolving society (ICT)
    2) Schools need to remain/become high quality places young people like to be in for learning: evidence-based practice
    3) Schools need to educate young people for responsible participants in society
    Different literacies for participation in society
    Ecological consciousness about school, nature, culture and society
  • 52. Evolution of the Media accelerates
    Technology as extension of our senses, our bodies, our minds..........
    We always needed media for our human processes of learning and communication:
    From Growling, to Gesture, to Talking, to Handwriting, to Printing, to Snailmailing, to Telegraphing, to Phoning, to Faxing, to Emailing, to Surfing, to Chatting, Hyving, Breezing, Skyping, Twittering....
    Being someone, somewhere in virtual space………
    Using more and more advanced media and tools in a changing society...
    For education: non-technocentric but anthropocentric approach -> what helps and improves learning?
  • 53. What works in schools?
    School-Level Factors:
    • A Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum
    • Challenging Goals and Effective Feedback
    • Parent and CommunityInvolvement
    • Safe and Orderly Environment
    • Collegiality and Professionalism
    Teacher-Level Factors:
    • Instructionalstrategies
    • Classroom management
    • Classroom curriculum design
    Student-Level Factors:
    • Home Environment
    • Learned Intelligence and Background Knowledge
    • Student Motivation
    Robert Marzano based on 35 years of educational research
  • 54. Factors at pupil-level
    Schools cannot do everything…
    20% of difference in pupil achievements can be explained by school factors
    80% by background factors of pupils:
    Home environment
    Learned Intelligence and Background Knowledge
    Student Motivation
    But schools can help in these…
    And ESP as well>>>
  • 55. What can the school do for these ?
    Home situation:
    Create and maintain connections between school and home, especially by giving information and courses on how to create a supportive environment for learning at home
    Intelligence & Background knowledge:
    Deepen the experience base: excursions, collaboration with organisations outside of school, support in creating life experiences
    Pay always attention to language(s) also in non-language lessons
  • 56. What can the school do for these ?
    Motivation:
    Be positive; focus on achievements, not on failures
    Create activities and assignments that are intrinsically attractive:
    trigger curiosity, fantasy and inspiration (the Flow);
    projects that foster collaboration, posing critical questions, group work
    Teach pupils what motivation is, how it works and how it influences them: they get more grip on how their processes of thinking and acting work
  • 57. Factors at (individual) teacher-level
    Pedagogical approach and instructional strategies
    Knowing what is effective; guard and monitor what and how pupils learn in CSCL-projects
    Classroom management
    Good relation between teacher-pupil; pupil-pupils
    Also in international project work
    (Re)design of the programme (curriculum)
    Not only rigid methods: keep on looking what works for your pupils
    Also in using ESP-materials: keep on adjusting to your and your pupils’ needs and wants
  • 58. School-Level Factors
    A Guaranteed and Viable Curriculum
    Enriched by ESP-work
    Challenging Goals and Effective Feedback
    Use this in international CSCL
    Parent and CommunityInvolvement
    Connect the school to the outside
    Safe and Orderly Environment
    Collegiality and Professionalism
    Learn from and with the Other
    No closed classrooms
    Is the system ‘wrong’?
  • 59. SOS of the SOS
    Save OurSchools of the SickOrganisationSyndrome
    • Insulitis: the islanddisease (time, content, closedclassrooms)
    • 60. Technophobia: the fearfortechnology
    ESP = Building Bridgeswith ICT
    Bridges for Learning
    Bridging Best Practices
    Bridging Visions for Learning
    Bridging Intercultural Diversity through Global Learning
  • 61. We still do not know everything…
    Factors that influence learning (outcomes) when doing international CSCL-projects??
    Research into learning & cognition
    3D-games lead to more lucid dreams: you dream 3D, you remember better, you can actually choose how to act, and the direction in which you go in your dream
    Culture of MSN, Hyves, Facebook: other social learning, other cultures? For adults, parents and teachers: other ununderstandable behaviour of young people? Digital natives?
  • 62. Brain maturation not at the same time
    Early development is not sign of giftedness
    In secondary education: brain still very much in development
    Especially metacognitive skills limited
    Connection between intelligence and maturation of the frontal cortex
    The more intelligent the pupil, the later the maturation
    Possibly: at 14 behind; at 18 ahead
    Room in schools for individual attunement to biological factors
  • 63. Aoccdrnig to rscheearch at Cmabrigde uinervtisy, it deosn’t mttaer waht oredr the ltteers in a wrod are

  • 65. FINISHED FILES ARE THE RE-
    SULT OF YEARS OF SCIENTIF-
    IC STUDY COMBINED WITH EXPERIENCE OF YEARS
  • 66. Count the White Passes in silence!
  • 67.
  • 68. The Mind Once Expanded to the Dimensions of Larger Ideas Never returns to its Original Size
  • 69. Innovating Education throughInternational ICT-Collaboration
  • 70. Educational challenges now & later for us as educators
    Sustainable ICT-innovation of learning, teaching and schools
    Learning from & with the Other: collaborative construction knowledge & understanding
    Developing rich powerful challenging real & virtual learning environments
    Educating the Net Generation, the Homo Zappiens, for a Rapidly changing World
    Lifelong (and lifewide) competence development in general, for teachers in specific
  • 71. CSCL-projects as innovative practice
    Internet-based interactions & collaborations between teachers and pupils around ‘conversation’ topics relevant for learning and teaching of all participants in the project.
    The topics and projects demand active & authentic learning (often in ‘the world’ outside of school)
    They demand real collaboration between teachers
    Always (mutual) foreign languages involved: different literacies
    Always (inter-) cultural aspects connected: bridging cultures
    Learning + Better understanding
    KISS + The Sky is the limit
  • 72. The conference: a rich environment
    For people to meet, to talk, to drink, to eat, to sing, to dance….
    And to discuss about the ways in which we can make our schools better places to be in for our children and for ourselves as teachers, with open (digital) doors and open (digital) windows, better places to learn for the future, together with other teachers and other pupils in ICT-rich educational environments
    And build bridges between people and cultures in all their diversity
    And appreciate the collective culture we are in now!!!
  • 73. Let’s enjoy the conference
    Let’s hope that this conference is a shared learning place for us all:
    That we learn from the best practices of each other,
    That we learn of the different cultures and countries we learn, work and live in,
    That we learn how similar we are in fact, despite all differences.
    And that we meet old friends and make new friends.
  • 74. Enjoy yourselves!Thank you
