Transcript

  • 1. New Technologies in the Classroom Presenter: Jeremy M. Rinkel Centralia Conference February 13, 2009
  • 2. What different roles do we play other than teacher on a daily basis?
  • 3. I have come to a frightening conclusion. I am the decisive element in the classroom. It is my personal approach that creates the climate. It is my daily mood that makes the weather. As a teacher I possess tremendous power to make a child's life miserable or joyous. I can be a tool of torture or an instrument of inspiration. I can humiliate or humor, hurt or heal. In all situations, it is my response that decides whether a crisis will be escalated or de-escalated, and a child humanized or de-humanized. --Haim Ginott
  • 4. Technology Changes …
  • 5. Classmarker
    • Teaching tool for online testing
    • Automatically grades the exams for instant feedback
    • Excellent for feedback on assignments
    • Two negatives I’ve found:

      • Doesn’t grade short answer accurately
    http://www.classmarker.com
  • 6. Teacher Tube
    • Excellent Resource for content and ideas
    • Easy to use and upload—very similar to You Tube
    • Benefits
      • “clean content”
      • Usually not blocked by filters
    • Negative
      • Very slow uploading videos
  • 7. Podcasts
    • Ipod + Broadcast = Podcast
    • Audacity http://audacity.sourceforge.net
  • 8. How can podcasts be used?
    • Podcasts engage students in thinking critically about their speaking fluency and communication skills.
    • In the classroom, educators and students can use podcasts to inform others about class news, current events, and areas of interest.
