Developing My Philosophy of Teachnology

  1. 1. When I first came to this class, I figured I would learn how to use a SMARTboard and maybe some other tips and tricks. If I had a philosophy of teachnology, it was probably along the lines of know how to use your board, and test your links ahead of time. Developing My Philosophy of Teachnology
  2. 2. Technology Today This course has made me realize what an impact technology has had on our day-to-day lives and those of our students. Technology is everywhere, and our students do not remember a time when that wasn’t so. As the Generation Z article we looked at mentions, students born between 1995 and 2010 are ‘digital natives’ who are constantly connected with devices. Ignoring technology in the classroom is not an option because otherwise we will be left behind by our students.
  3. 3. Technology Today I want to control the technology in my classroom, not have it control me. MOS Technology 2005
  4. 4. Digital footprint Since technology is everywhere, I realized that having a good digital footprint is a new and important professional consideration to be successful. Employers will Google you, and inappropriate Facebook photos will come back to haunt you. I need to consider my own footprint, and my students understanding of their own online actions.
  5. 5. Digital Footprint I have to begin to create my own digital footprint and Professional Learning Network. This ePortfolio is a good start, but I need to work on creating a professional online presence for myself. I do not have a lot of my life on the internet, but if I want to become a teacher I want to have a strong and positive presence for employers, parents and students to find. Just as teachers are held to higher standards of behaviour outside the classroom, they need that same standard online.
  6. 6. Digital Footprint I also need to teach my students how to create and protect their own digital footprints. Their entire lives will be online; I need to teach them how to manage their own information. They need to understand this in order for them to be successful later in life, and not stopped by some stupid drunk pictures from high school.
  7. 7. Digital Footprint It is important as a teacher to maintain a strong and professional digital footprint for employers, parents and students to be able to access. I need to teach my students about the effects of their own digital footprints and how to create a professional presence while protecting their privacy.
  8. 8. TPACK I had heard of TPACK before this class, but I hadn’t really considered the technology part of it before. I didn’t understand how technology could stand on equal ground with pedagogy and content in a classroom. Technology, in my mind, was dependent on whether or not your classroom had a projector or a SMARTboard, and how your lessons would be affected by it. Now realizing the importance of technology in everyday life I understand how important it is to carefully consider its part in your lesson.
  9. 9. TPACK TP: How technology can help you to achieve the desired effect of your pedagogy that you couldn’t before TC: Using technology to improve or deepen understanding of your lesson TK: We need to teach students how to control technology and use new and different tools so that they can be comfortable in our increasingly digital world. TPACK: Allowing technology to achieve your pedagogy while improving understanding in new ways by your students and yourself mastering new technology and tools.
  10. 10. TPACK One thing I want to make certain of is that I always use technology for a purpose. I don’t want to use the latest and greatest just because it is shiny and new. Technology is meant to help us, so I want to use the simplest method to achieve my content and pedagogical goals.
  11. 11. TPACK When considering TPACK, I want technology to support and enhance pedagogy and content knowledge so that it is always used for a clear purpose. M. Maggs 2007
  12. 12. Philosophy of Teachnology So Far… I want to control the technology in my classroom, not have it control me. It is important as a teacher to maintain a strong and professional digital footprint for employers, parents and students to be able to access. I need to teach my students about the effects of their own digital footprints and how to create a professional presence while protecting their privacy. When considering TPACK, I want technology to support and enhance pedagogy and content knowledge so that it is always used for a clear purpose.
  13. 13. Philosophy of Teachnology So Far… My current philosophy is short, but as I continue to grow as a teacher and develop my own teacher identity and teaching philosophy it will change with me. I have a base to work from but I know that my teachnology will always be changing as technology itself continues to transform our world. Fice 2007
