Transcript

  • 1. Web  2.0  Title  screen   • through  my  PLN,  I  recently  discovered  a  new  method  for  presentations   • this  is  my  first  time  for  creating  this  time  of  presentation  which  is  pretty  scary  given  that  this  is  a  job  interview   • might  be  ill-­‐advised,  but  then  again,  diving  in  and  trying  new  things  is  what  technology  coaches  ask  teachers  to  do,   so…  if  I’m  going  to  ask  a  teacher  to  be  a  little  fearless,  I  need  to  be  a  little  fearless  myself    Pecha  Kucha  (pe  chek  a  chu)   • the  format  is  called  a  pe  chek  a  chu  and  it  was  invented  by  architects  for  architects  –  mostly  in  self-­‐defense  and   necessity  because  if  you  give  an  architect  a  slideshow  with  pretty  pictures  and  a  microphone,  you’re  in  for  a  long   night   • the  rules  are  simple:  20  slides,  20  seconds  each    My  2.0  Classroom   • I’ll  start  off  my  presentation  by  showing  you  an  overview  of  the  different  technology  that  you  would  see  in  use  in   my  classroom  throughout  the  year   • some  I’ve  used  for  several  years  and  some  were  brand  new  adventures  this  year   • each  of  the  technologies  you  see  here  have  been  used  in  my  classroom,  so  I  will  spend  a  little  time  detailing  each  of   them  in  this  presentation    Still  Like  to  Try   • there  are  things  I’d  still  like  to  try  that  I  haven’t  yet  incorporated  into  my  classroom:   o pln’s  for  students   o prezi’s  –for  student  presentations   o voicethread  for  alternative  assessments  and  small  group  collaborative  work    Wikispaces   • this  is  a  screen  shot  of  my  class  wiki   • love  wikis  for  their  portability  and  collaborative  possibilities   • one  way  I  use  my  class  website  is  to  post  tutorial  videos  created  with  my  Promethean  board  and  Jing  –  students   respond  well  to  these  and  say  it  helps  them  with  their  homework    Collaborative  Wikis   • the  discussion  feature  of  wikispaces  enables  teachers  to  post  thoughtful  questions  that  encourage  students  to   discuss  ideas  rather  than  just  regurgitate  facts   • I’ve  also  had  students  create  their  own  digital  textbooks  in  a  wiki  format  –  a  wikibook  is  more  engaging  than  a   regular  textbook  because  of  the  interactivity  –  best  of  all,  students  create  it    Online  Learning   • another  use  for  wikis  is  as  an  online  supplement;  these  two  screen  shots  are  examples  of  online  units  I  created   for  students  to  use  as  extra  help  or  as  an  additional  assessment;  students  who  missed  classes  or  who  wanted   additional  practice  were  encouraged  to  takes  advantage  of  the  units    Google  Docs   • discovered  google  docs  in  grad  school   • one  of  the  most  powerful  things  about  google  docs  is  that  a  teacher  can  comment  on  work  in  progress  so  that  the   student  can  make  adjustments  on  the  fly  before  their  work  is  “final.”     • this  improves  the  quality  of  the  final  product  and  makes  the  work  more  meaningful  and  authentic  since  peer   review  and  revision  is  a  part  of  the  normal  work  flow  in  the  “real  world”      Google  Docs  2   • I’ve  discovered  that  the  less  instruction  I  give  my  students  regarding  the  use  of  new  technology,  the  better;   students  work  more  independently  when  they  know  I’m  not  going  to  swoop  in  and  walk  them  through  every  step;   here  is  an  example  of  an  introductory  assignment  I  give  my  classes  to  teach  them  how  cool  google  docs  are    Blogging   • one  of  the  best  lessons  I  did  this  year  involved  blogging;  I  had  students  watch  a  video  about  a  musician  who  is   profoundly  deaf  and  then  read  her  essay  about  sound  and  hearing.  Their  assignment  was  to  comment  on  the   blog  and  ask  questions  of  two  different  student’s  posts;  in  one  day,  there  were  109  comments  from  two  classes.    Edmodo  
  • 2. • originally  used  edmodo  as  a  way  to  communicate  with  students  without  internet  access   • this  year  moved   edmodo   into   my   classroom  more  by  having  students  find   videos  and  share  them  with  each  other,   submit  success  criteria  checks,  and  even  participate  in  quick  contests  to  see  who  could  post  the  most  original   facts  on  a  topic  in  a  given  time  period    Online  Simulations  (2  slides)   • Another  web  technology  I  use  regularly  in  my  classroom  is  online  simulations.  PhET  –  Physics  Education   Technology  is  a  great  source  for  these  sims.  Originally,  PhET  was  only  physics  topics,  but  it  has  expanded  to  include   topics  in  chemistry,  biology,  earth  science,  and  math.  By  using  these  simulations,  students  can  manipulate   variables,  conduct  inquiry-­‐based  labs,  and  learn  by  doing.  As  an  example,  in  this  simulation,  students  learn  how  to   look  at  the  relationships  between  the  weights  of  different  shapes  –  an  exercise  which  helps  algebra  students  to   visualize  inequalities  and  equations.    Concept  Mapping   • concept  mapping  helps  students  to  make  sense  of  big  ideas  and  how  the  smaller  pieces  fit  together  in  the  big   picture   • because  there  is  no  one  right  way  to  make  a  concept  map,  student  must  be  able  to  think  about  their  thinking  and   defend  their  placement  of  their  nodes  on  the  concept  map   • c-­‐map  is  one  of  the  online  tools  I  have  used  with  student  to  create  their  concept  maps    Flip  cameras   • a  simple  flip  camera  in  the  hands  of  students  can  be  used  to  gather  data  in  lab  investigations,  to  interview  each   other  about  predictions  for  the  outcome  of  an  investigation  or  interview  each  other  after  an  investigation  as  a   de-­‐brief;  I’ve  used  my  flip  camera  in  all  of  these  ways  and  found  that  student  respond  well   •  Student  Response  Systems   • ActiveInspire  software  is  great  for  manipulating  objects  on  the  screen  such  as  this  screen  shot  where  students   could  pull  up  atoms  in  order  to  balance  the  equation;  later  on  the  flipchart,  the  students  are  asked  a  question  about   a  balanced  equation;  clickers  are  used  as  a  form  of  formative  assessment      Activegrade   • online,  standards-­‐based  gradebook     • gives  teachers  more  information  at  a  glance  than  traditional  gradebooks;  it’s  visually  appealing,  and  teachers  can   drill  down  by  clicking  on  any  standard   • students  log  on  to  activegrade  and  see  a  bar  graph  representing  their  progress  along  each  standard  –  they  can   also  drill  down  to  see  the  details  for  every  standard  –  along  with  teacher  comments    21st  Century  Old-­‐School   • 21st  century  learning  isn’t  necessarily  just  computers  and  software  –  it’s  a  way  of  approaching  learning   • here’s  an  old  school  clicker  that  I  often  use  in  class  when  a  diagram  or  a  more  complex  response  is  needed  for   formative  assessment   • concept  maps  don’t  have  to  be  done  on  the  computer:  post  –it  notes  as  nodes  on  the  student’s  desk  is  a  another  way   to  get  21st  century  thinking  into  a  classroom  without  computers    Possibilities?   • I’m  not  making  light  of  copyright  infringement  with  this  slide,  but  this  picture  reminded  me  of  one  of  my  favorite   quotes  about  21st  century  skills  –  It  sums  up  my  view  of  the  shift  in  learning  that  we  are  currently  experiencing    Learning  Revolution   • I  believe  we  are  in  an  exciting  time  in  our  world;  we  are  witnessing  a  shift  from  the  Information  Age  to  the  “What   Can  You  Do  With  Your  Information  Age”  Working  together  with  teachers  and  building  leaders,  technology   coaches  are  the  leaders  in  supporting  schools  in  order  to  give  our  students  the  help  they  need  to  be  prepared   for  and  succeed  in  the  21st  century.
