  • How many of you had a chance to download red:green for some interaction later in the presentation. If you didn’t don’ worry you can still participate.
  • The Speak Up Research Project has been underway for the past 8 years.Schools or district received the report and individualized reports for each group (student, Parents, etc.)You may want to encourage your Leadership students to have their schools take survey this next year. It’s a great free way to learn what your school community is thinking about technology. They have included higher Ed students, those becoming teachers.
  • Project Tomorrow is non-profit, but these are their sponsors for this year. The reports are downloadable from Blackboard.
  • Julie Evans described today’s education as The New 3’E’s…This report can be downloaded form the Project Tomorrow website. It presents even more information than I have time to share today.I’ll give you the link at the end.
  • The population was very evenly spread. Over half were title 1.And 34% of the schools had over half minority populations.
  • The student vision has 3 parts:. What do we mean by each of these 3 elements of learning?
  • Let’s get your ideas on today’s students.
  • Speak up research for 2010 finds little difference between males and females in technology use.
  • Which one?
  • 6thgrader Nathan Husse from the Colfax School District in California.
  • Here again is what six graders are doing.
  • Today’s sixth graders are much more savvy and fluent with emerging technologies than their older siblings in high school.22 % participate in 3D virtual reality worlds compared to 15% of high school students.47% are tapping into educational games with learning both in school and out, Only 29% of their high school peers are doing the same.
  • These findings are from the 2009 Speak-Up Survey. I’ll give you some characteristics of students and you choose which one you think marches the best.
  • Which one reflects these characteristics?
  • Here again are her characteristics.
  • The new 3 E’s of education and how students want to approach learning complements the US Department of Education’s National Education Technology Plan.http://www.ed.gov/technology/netp-2010. But don’t be fooled into thinking that students are waiting for us to catch up to their vision. Students are already very effectively implementing this vision of socially based, un-tethered and digitally rich learning on their own, both in and out of school.
  • At conferences, in policy discussions and within our schools and districts: mobile learning, online and blended learning and e-textbooks have generated significant interest this year.
  • Within the past year, we have seen a huge increase in interestin mobile learningThe leveraging of small, portable devices to facilitate anytime, anywhere, un-tethered learning. How about you, what mobile learning device is important to you?
  • I’ll let you think about it, then we’ll have a show of hands, if you have internet access you an go to this Google formhttp://tinyurl.com/isolatedisland and input your choice.This site demos the Google Form –easy to use site to get input from everyone. You may be surprised at the results from different groups
  • Let’s look at the first Key trend in detail.Educational leaders want to facilitate anywhere, anytime learning, and some mobile devices offer that with a lower price tag. Educators and parents use mobile devices, and some have started see the instructional potential of these devices.A wide range of mobile devices in students’ pockets and backpacks has also been a catalyst for this new interest.
  • For the past eight years, Speak Up surveys poll students on their personal access to various electronic devices.The results are significant in two areas:Smart phone access for middle and high school students jumped 42 percent from 2009 to 2010.When the data for middle and high school students is analyzed for differences based upon school demographics such as qualification for Title 1 funding (as an indication of community poverty) or community type (urban, rural or suburban) there is relatively little or no difference in the data results. For example, 44 percent of high school students in Title 1 schools as well as in rural or urban schools in the Speak Up participant group say that they now have a smart phone; same percentage for students in suburban, non-Title 1 schools. At least on access to mobile devices, the traditional interpretation of the digital divide appears to be no longer relevant.You may be surprised by what your students have. Julie Evans was visiting in Queens NY (a non affluent area) and taking to students in 5th grade class. Although she thought it was a frivolous question, she asked if anyone had access to an ipad. 21 of the 24 students raised their hands, and the teacher’s head in the back of the room popped up. How could he leverage this type of technology for student learning?
  • So students have Increased access,but the more meaningful discussion needs to be around How these types of devices can change the learning paradigm?How can mobile learning enable, engage and empower today’s students as learners?Oneplace to examine the potential benefits of mobile learning is to see how the students themselves envision using these devices in traditional school settings.Two areas stand out.
  • Students were asked…The first area wouldIncrease the effectiveness of their traditional school processes by using their mobile devices to…These are good models for expanded classroom use.
  • The second area moves beyond traditional learning…These potential uses for mobile learning devices at school helps to explain why 53 percent of middle and high school students s that the largest obstacle they face in using technology in their school today is their inability to use their own cell phone, smart phone or MP3 player.The students definitely have a clear vision about the potential of mobile learning to enable, engage, and empower them as 21st century learners.
  • Le’s see your votes-hold your fingers in the air.
  • Both this year and last year “instant or text messages is their preferred tool. Skype is moving up in popularity!
  • Those of you who are said yes, fall in a group Julie Evans called Mobile Learning Explorers. A small courageous group trying new things, but often at odds with district policies.However, you have the support of students and parents, as these next slides show.
  • Very interesting difference from Administrators nation wide.
  • And parents are willing to take the extra needed to make a smart phone work for their student.
  • If you are curious about how your students feel and what devices they own, make a quick form, send it out just one or two questions at a time.
  • On-line learning is the 2 key trend. Similar to mobile learning, interest in online learning has grown significantly amongst students, educators, parents and policymakers.39% more administrators and 5 times as many parents would incorporate online classes into their vision of the ultimate school.
  • Growth has exploded for online learning. In 3 years the number of High school students has tripled.The number of middle school students has doubled
  • Open your red/green app –it usually opens to the red.green information page. If you have a red or green screen, just tap the “i” for information.Practice tapping (switching from red to green).Let’s do the first question.
  • Several different models of online instruction have expanded, with Blended Classes showing the most growth.100% classroom teachers means that students take a course with their regular teacher as the instructor.100% class other teachers, means the class has an outside teacher
  • Teachers realize the benefits through their own professional development experiences.27% of teachers have participated in 100% on line professional development class or workshop.36% of administrators report experience with on line learning.Students and parents show interest in the potential of online learning to engage, enable and empower a new paradigm for learning. Parents have experienced online education in their own job roles.Administrators see online learning as meeting a wider variety of student need—moving beyond credit recovery and academic remediation.
  • You can see high school students views, the top 5 listed.Middle school students place a higher value on HOW the online learning facilitates a different kind of learning experience for them.Getting extra help from the teacher, more comfortable asking questions, being able to share ideas with others, etc.Girls showed more interest in taking online classes than boys by 6%But the idea of leveraging online classes to collaborate and share ideas with other does not have a gender bias.
  • Everyone seems excited about the prospect of digital or e-textbooks for a variety of reasons. Policymakers and administrators are intrigued with the twin objectives of leveraging existing technology and costs associated with traditional textbooks. Parents are motivated by their concerns about the ever increasing weight of student backpacks and idea of increasing student engagement and achievement. Students envision this new kind of textbook as the gateway to a rich and interactive set of digital content and resources - exactly what is called for in the student vision.
  • 27 percent of middle school students, and a third of high school students (35 percent) say that they are currently using online textbooks or other online curriculum as part of their regular schoolwork. Students’ aspirations around using e- textbooks continue to be a key component of the student vision with almost a majority of students in grades three through twelve voting for digital textbooks as essential in their ultimate school.
  • 27 percent of middle school students, and a third of high school students (35 percent) say that they are currently using online textbooks or other online curriculum as part of their regular schoolwork. Students’ aspirations around using e- textbooks continue to be a key component of the student vision with almost a majority of students in grades three through twelve voting for digital textbooks as essential in their ultimate school.
  • Next charts show the features middle school students and parents would design in the ultimate e-textbook. While we see some gender differences between girls and boys about their desired features. what is more interesting is the disconnect between parents and students regarding the priority of different interactive activities.
  • The middle school students, place a higher premium than their parents on using communications and collaboration applications (40 percent)and anything that sniffs of a mobile application or capability (50 percent).
  • Interesting is the disconnect between parents and students regarding the priority of different interactive activities. Parents are more bullish than the students on features such as animations and simulations (67percent), links to real time data (59 percent), quizzes and self- assessment tests to evaluate progress (67 percent) and online tutors (57 percent). The middle school students value access to 3D content (36 percent) with parents below 20%
  • These are the nation wide parental digital choices. If your school or district participated in the 2010 Speak Up Survey, you have access to your parents’ results.Again, you could do an informal survey of your own parents (online, using technology to make it easy) and see what your parents value.Parents are looking to take on a new role, as co-teacher. This would allow them to understand how the current course is engaging their child.They know the value of engagement in the learning process. One of the top 5 concerns of parents: Course materials that are not engaging!
  • Parents are now seeking digital content to support, enhance or augment their child’s learning outcomes and achievement levels.They want high quality computer-based games, websites and online classes.
  • Adaptivesoftware is a type of specialized software that is programmed or created to respond to changes in the needs or desires of the user. The key element of adaptivesoftware is flexibility. Rather than allowing only one means of operating the software, there may be several possible means of operation that can be employed by a given user. Voice control, etc.
  • Talk with your neighbors. Where are you with mobile learning?
  • Has your district or school been involved in online learning? Are you interested in learning more?
  • Share your ideas on Digital content. Would it work in your school or district? Do you think parents and teachers would value it?

Centralized Institutions School buildings are going to become homebases of learning, not the institutions where all learning happens.

Education School Classes that Fail to Integrate Social Technology This is actually one that could occur over the next five years.
