Transcript

  • 1. Social Structures in Learning: Creative Enterprise and Technology Karen Frostig, Associate Professor, Lesley University and Visiting Scholar, Brandeis University Kabren Levinson, Student, Social Philosophy, Bard College and Podcaster, http://nerdnewsradio.com
  • 2. - Formalism to Constructivism - Modernism to Postmodernism - Ideology to Interrogation Issues of Authority
  • 3. TRADITIONAL: Technique Driven/Discipline Centered - Lessons determined by the teacher in advance. - Curriculum stands on its own, separate from the classroom. - “Art Demos” set up the teacher as the authority. - Technique as an “add-on” rather than a skill.
  • 4. PROGRESSIVE: Inquiry Driven/Student-Centered Classroom culture is developed through inquiry: - Who are the students? - Where is their community? - What matters in their lives?
  • 5. Models of Education: - Constructivism - Essential Questions - Critical Consciousness - Dialogic Education
  • 6. Assemblages
  • 7. Classroom as Community The “what-how-why-who” questions
  • 8. Education + Technology
  • 9. Education
  • 10. Technology
  • 11. Educational/Academic Technology
  • 12. My Project - Educational technology program - Move the school forward - Explore emerging technologies - Classroom 2.0
  • 13. Why? - Education has been left behind - Technology is moving, Education is not - IT is not EduTech - School’s mission: strong community values
  • 14. Individual Technologies - Blogs (Wordpress, Tumblr) - Wiki’s (PBWiki, Wikispaces) - Twitter (http://twitter.com) - Google Apps for Education
  • 15. My Recommendation http://kabren.wikispaces.com/rec-tech EduTech should be a top priority. - Academic Technology Supervisor - Rethink IT, rethink tech mission - Individual Technologies (Blogs, Wiki’s, etc) - Teachers should not be afraid to ask for help
  • 16. CONCLUSION: Curriculum and Imagination “Developing curriculum is a creative process. it is sketched, formed, and enacted, as well as written, and continually changes as it is implemented, criticized, and revised.” --Paul Duncum (2001)
  • 17. Four educational messages for children 1. You are a human being 2. Your home is planet Earth 3. You are a citizen of a multicultural society 4. You live in an interrelated world. --Melanie Davenport (2000)
