Students are "Plugged In" R Teachers? Presentation Transcript

  • 1. Do What We Say, Not What We Do!
    We stress technology to our students daily
    We have Smart Boards in our rooms
    We have announcements fed to our rooms through the televisions
    We take attendance on-line
    Grades are posted for students/parents for them to view on-line
  • 2. What is Open House Like?
    A handwritten schedule given to the parents to follow
    A typed/copied syllabus for parents to refer to
    An exhaustive walk around the building through their child’s schedule
    A contact phone number and e-mail to contact their teacher with questions
  • 3. Where is the Technology?
    Where is the SmartBoard illustration showing how parents can obtain daily information about assignments through Edmodo?
    Where is the Edmodo tutorial?
    Where is the explanation about teacher web?
    Where is the SmartBoard demo?
  • 4. What we need to communicate to parents!
    The world the students live in where they are constantly needing to feel connected
    The tools we will use to allow them to feel connected and learn the content
    Completed projects to show parents what their students will learn and how they will be connected
    How these tools will prepare them for their life after high school
  • 5. What students need to hear on day 1!
    You will be a smarter generation than your teachers
    Illustrate some technology that is in their future
    How the content will be taught
    What will be taught isn’t as important to them
    They will work with their peers and help teach each other through technological means
  • 6. We must Model what we teach
    We lose integrity with our students when we say one thing and teach something else
    Starting on the first day of class, we need to reduce their anxiety by creating an environment they are comfortable with
    Mobile Learning Devices
    Computer Projects
  • 7. We have to teach them in their “language”
    Earn their attention and respect by teaching them something using their “language” of technology
    They love social networking and Edmodo is a controlled learning tool that uses social networking
    Teach them to take responsibility for their work by attaching files in Edmodo and making them accountable for checking Edmodo when they are absent
  • 8. Why is a teacher absence a waste of a learning day?
    Teacher web and Edmodo have tools to record lessons and they can be played to the class when the teacher is absent
    Students can also see the same thing from their homes should they be absent
  • 9. Technology Advantages - Teachers
    Keep students engaged
    Students want to learn through their “language”
    Extend the classroom outside of the school day
    Students have accountability for assignments
    No make-up work copies – They get it from the teacher web or Edmodo
    Students can help their classmates in Edmodo
  • 10. Technology Advantages - Student
    Keeps their attention
    Familiar with technology language
    Connected to classmates and teacher on-line (Edmodo)
    Connected socially with classmates – Edmodo class specific
    Connected to class assignments and can obtain copies of needed documentation and deadlines
