  • Make sure everyone has pptMerlene online poll
  • NOTES:Explain what’s going on“Now I’m going to ask for your opinion. You’ll use your phones to respond just like on American Idol. So please take out your cell phones, but remember to leave them on silent.”“You’ll participate by sending a text message. If you don’t know how to do that, just ask your kids! Or have your neighbor help you figure it out.”Address their concerns“This is a just standard rate text message, so it may be free for you, or up to twenty cents on some carriers if you do not have a text messaging plan.”“The service we are using is serious about privacy. We cannot see your phone numbers, and you’ll never receive follow-up text messages outside this presentation. There’s only one thing worse than email spam – and that’s text message spam because you have to pay to receive it!”Use a demo or practice pollFor example, a Free Text Poll like “Let’s Practice: Text in your first name!”Always test your polls in your presentation before your event using the computer that will be projecting your presentation, especially if that computer is not the one you’re currently using.

  • KathyDuring our class discussions, we’ve echoed the phrase “hasn’t changed much” Technology is driving change
  • Kathy“Learned how to learn” analogy to CPA (Can’t pass again, cutting pasting, attaching) – I always told people that passing the CPA exam meant that I know how to learn.“Powerless” analogy to driving on Interstate 270 – I’m doing 65 in the right lane and getting passed up by everyone else. But every once in awhile,

  • KathyWhat these 4 positions have in common is the desire to restructure schools as we know them and the pressures and current criticisms are unlikely to decrease in the future
  • KathyLabor force – teachers are leaving the classroom due to high stakes testing and not finding personal satisfaction that comes from feeling like a partnerParents – will not pay for schools they are not using unless forced to and will find ways to free themselves from the fiscal burden

  • Technology, Curriculum, and the Future
    Merlene Gilb
    Kathy Wood
  • Joe’s non-Netbook
  • How To Vote via Texting
    EXAMPLE
    Standard texting rates only (worst case US $0.20)
    We have no access to your phone number
    Capitalization doesn’t matter, but spaces and spelling do
    TIPS
  • How To Vote via Twitter
    EXAMPLE
    Capitalization doesn’t matter, but spaces and spelling do
    Since @poll is the first word, your followers will not receive this tweet
    TIPS
  • What are Schools Doing? How is Technology Integrated into Your Curriculum?
    Don’t forget: You can copy-paste this slide into other presentations, and move or resize the poll.
  • What are Schools Doing? How is Technology Integrated into Your Curriculum?
  • Paradigm Shift
    Paradigm is a shared set of assumptions that explain the world to us and help us predict the future
    Educators are clinging to a set of concepts that are quickly loosing all value
    The notion that knowledge is education is far from the truth and can no longer serve as an organizer for curriculum
  • What does it mean
    • Work in the future will be more with our heads than our hands – technical knowledge will be the basis
    • An educated person is one who has learned how to learn (Carl Rogers)
    • Learning will not be linear but convergent – putting together existing knowledge for personal and impermanent reasons
    • Focus on the characteristics of new technology and ask “What can we do with this that we could not do before?” and “If there were no schools, how would learning occur?”
    • Rush of technology has left us feeling powerless
  • What does it mean
    • Several professional organizations and agencies have put together lists (p287-288) of needs for world citizens in the future that are remarkably similar –
    Problem solver
    Collaboration skills
    Social skills and connectivity to community
    Technical literacy
    Global outlook/environment
    Cultural awareness
  • Getting Started
    • Effective planning starts with the end in mind (Stephen Covey)
    • Must prepare students for an unknown destination that will be technological and different from today
    • Adaptation will be a lifelong theme
    • Focus on the use of technology not the equipment
    • Nothing should be included in curriculum unless it is justified in terms of the future
  • Getting Started
    Tasks for converting to 21st Century (Wiles & Lundt, 2004):
    Design new avenues for learning and communicating
    Deemphasize standardization of curriculum
    Acknowledge human differences and capabilities
    Envision and construct new types of facilities
    Provide startup capital for technology
    Invest in and allocate resources for teacher training
    Recruit and reward learning leaders
    Allow students and teachers to network
    Value knowledge for its application rather than acquisition
  • What are Schools Doing? How is Technology Integrated into Your Curriculum?
    Don’t forget: You can copy-paste this slide into other presentations, and move or resize the poll.
  • What are Schools Doing
    • Regularly reported items on various studies:
    Email
    Gathering data from internet for project
    Using websites to expand on subject of study
    Monitoring an online project or trip
    Reading works of other students
    Taking a virtual field trip
  • What are Schools Doing
    • New strategies reported by advanced schools:
    Digital textbooks – allows quick searches
    Text to speech software – converts digital text to speech
    Talking word processors – teaches editing skills to student writers
    Search engines – unlock data from billions of webpages
    Blogging – facilitates specialty information exchange around study topics
  • Projections
    • Four A’s – access, analyze, authenticate and apply
    • Valued skills – systems thinking, collaboration, technical learning, contracting, and technical fluency
    • Unlearning and relearning will be vital skills
    • What is worth knowing will still be the central focus of any change
  • Projections
    • Major factors that might shape curriculum decision making for next generation of workers
    Basic issues of defining, controlling, delivering and assessing curriculum remain unchanged
    Homeschooling movement
    Schools must break free from the one place one pace learning model
    Interactive technology creates virtual learning environment with no boundaries – students and teachers are partners in culture of learning
  • Projections
    • Trends in learning for next several decades
    Greater learning communities in & beyond the school
    Totally wireless access to all knowledge sources
    Greater miniaturization for transport of knowledge (iPad)
    Shift to problem solving and application of knowledge
    De-emphasis on standardization and testing
    New emphasis on certification and experience
    • Changing composition of student population
    • Difficulty finding qualified staff
    • Government micromanagement
  • Decline, Attack, Defection
    Four Positions illustrating range of dissatisfaction with public schools
    Liberal critics who claim schools are oppressive places doing a disservice to children and actually damaging them (John Gatto)
    School reformers who don’t think schools can transition to the 21st century and call for the design of a new system with PLCs and mentors to guide the application of knowledge (Wiles & Lundt)
  • Decline, Attack, Defection
    Four Positions illustrating range of dissatisfaction with public schools
    Right wing entrepreneurs using existing political process to shift allocation of resources - the 65% solution (Patrick Byrne)
    Far right - those who feel schools should be reformed or privatized due to low performance – motivation is not education but economics
  • How Public Education is Responding
    • Not very well – need to address 3 critical areas:
    Education labor force
    Relationship with parents
    Acknowledge new technologies and use them to enhance teaching
  • Defining the role of Education in our Society
    • What directions seem most promising to pursue in planning education?
    • Where and how do educators begin to assess educational alternatives?
    • Can the future be influenced by our actions or is it largely predetermined?
    • Where do we as planners gain the value structure to plan for the future?
    • How can we effectively involve others in society in planning for the future
  • Views of Education
    • Traditional
    • Progressive
    • Radical/Postmodern
    • Spicynodes
  • Final Challenge . . .
    “As we transition into a new era and a time of hope, we look for increased competition among those interested in curriculum in schools. Curriculum developers, although sometimes pressed into the role of referee, must acknowledge a basic truth about the field: Curriculum is a value-laden area of education. Neutrality, or simply burying professional activity in curriculum development processes, may not be possible in the years to come.”
