  • INTEGRATING TECHNOLOGY IN THE 21 ST CENTURY Career and Technical Education Conference Kris Baldwin http://kbaldwin.tie.wikispaces.net/CTEPresentation Jackie Jessop Rising http://jrising.tie.wikispaces.net
  • It’s more than technology…
    • “ a student not engaged is a student not learning.”
    • “ a teacher with access to technology who is not using it, is not teaching ‘the base program’ as well as he or she can.”
    • “ I believe technologies that engage and motivate students by offering opportunities for self-direction, inquiry, discovery, and creativity are the best way to meet the needs of all students. …you can’t tell who the Special Ed students are or who the [gifted] students are… because everyone is fully engaged and working at their own level.”
    Mark Wagner, Educational Technology and Life , April 2008
  • … but technology provides a path.
    • “ Computers and the attendant technology can no longer be considered desirable adjuncts to education. Instead, they have to be regarded as essential—as thinking prosthetics (Johnson 2001) or mind tools (Jonassen 1996).” ~Donald Philip, Innovate
    • "It's about designing for learning, communicating with the public, celebrating successes and recognizing our shortcomings and it's about creating a positive work environment for the teachers." ~ ISTE Past-president Kurt Steinhaus
    • Whenever a student suggests a way they'd like to learn, I ask them how we might incorporate it. Then I ask a technician to make it happen. Wikis have been mentioned; forums are standard. Ipods, blogs and skype are all tools that can be used to create different ways to engage with students . ~Janine McVeagh, coda , 2008

    • The Native Speakers
    Taken from presentations by Marc Prensky
  • Yesterday’s news?
    • "I'm sorry, but I don't go for all this digital natives and immigrants stuff when it comes to this: I don't know anything about the internal combustion engine, but I know it's pretty dangerous to wander about on the road, so I've learnt to handle myself safely when I need to get from one side of the road to the other."
    The phrase may have been useful to start with, but it's been over-used for a long time now. In any case , after immigrants have been in a country for a while, they become natives . We've had personal computers for 30 years, and I was using computers in my teaching back in 1975. How long does it take for someone to wake up to the fact that technology is part of life, not an add-on ? Terry Freedman , July 2006
  • The Pew Info
    • There is a widening gap between techno-savvy students and their schools
    • Many schools and teachers have not yet recognized – much less responded to – the new ways students communicate and access information over the Internet
    • Students want more and more engaging internet activities at school that are relevant to their lives
  • What is 21st Century Literacy ?
    • Students and Teachers who are:
    • Effective Learners

  • Are we there yet?
    • It reminds me of when I was a math teacher. In about 80% of the parent conferences I had with students who were struggling, at least one of the parents would say "I was never any good at math either."
    • While I don't doubt the truth of the statement, it was the fact that they said it and almost seemed proud of it that bothered me (and of course the message it sent to their student). I can't imagine a parent saying "Oh, yeah, I never learned how to read" and being proud of it.
    • It seemed like there was a different standard for math - not knowing math was socially acceptable, not knowing how to read was very unacceptable .
    • I sort of get the same feeling today about technology. It's acceptable to say "I don't really get computers" - and many people appear to be rather proud of their technological ignorance.
    Karl Fisch , The Fischbowl, September 2007
  • The Big Picture
    • Curriculum drives technology
    • Begin with the end in mind
    • Technology as a tool
    • Mindset , not a skill set

  • Technology Integration
    • “ Integrating technology is not about technology – it is primarily about content and effective instructional practices.
    • Technology involves the tools with which we deliver content and implement practices in better ways. Its focus must be on curriculum and learning.
    • Integration is defined not by the amount or type of technology used, but by how and why it is used.”
    • Rodney Earle, 2002
