  • Whatever is new to the current generation

    Jeffie - The thing that worked fine yesterday but doesn't today, lol? And something that simplifies a task- like making fire- wait for lightning to strike- sticks- matches-stoves-microwave

    Fire
    Stone tools
    Metal tools
    Telephones
    cars
    Color televisions
    Cell phones
    the Internet!
  • Lightbulbs used to be new and innovative
  • Cameras used to be new and innovative
  • Phonographs were the latest, greatest thing!
  • The Model T was terrifying when it first came out
  • Film strip projector with tape player
  • NOT a technology upgrade for the internet (that’s called Internet2)
    Websites that facilitate content creation, collaboration, sharing, interaction, social networking, etc.
  • Generation Z – born 2001? - PRESENT
    “digital natives”
    Net generation

    They'd rather text than talk. They prefer to communicate online — often with friends they have never met. They don’t spend much time outdoors unless adults organize activities for them. They can’t imagine life without cell phones. They have never known a world without technology or terrorism or Columbine. They prefer computers to books and want instant results. They are growing up in an economic depression and are under tremendous pressure to succeed. Mostly they are growing up fast, and exhibiting behavior far beyond their years.

  • What can I use?
    What do you have already?
    What 2.0 tools are there that can be used?
    How?
    Cost!
    Ask the students!
  • One popular way to use an Edublog is to make regular updates about assignments, events, and anything going on in class.
    Blogs like these keep students and parents informed and extend the classroom to any place with access to the web. Students love to blog too, and doing so can engage students in their learning and extend collaboration with classmates and even people all over the world!
