    4. 4. The world is changing...
    5. 5. Driving Questions• What are you doing to contextualize and mobilize what you are learning?• How will you leverage, how will you enable your teachers or your students to leverage- collective intelligence?
    6. 6. Are you Ready for Learning and Leading in the 21st CenturyIt isn’t just “coming”… it has arrived! And schools who aren’tredefining themselves, risk becoming irrelevant in preparingstudents for the future.

    14. 14. Time TravelLewis Perelman, author of Schools Out (1992). Perelmanargues that schools are out of sync with technological change:...the technological gap between the school environment andthe "real world" is growing so wide, so fast that the classroomexperience is on the way to becoming not merely unproductivebut increasingly irrelevant to normal human existence (p.215).Seymour Papert (1993)In the wake of the startling growth of science and technology inour recent past, some areas of human activity have undergonemegachange. Telecommunications, entertainment andtransportation, as well as medicine, are among them. School isa notable example of an area that has not(p.2).
    15. 15. What does it mean to work in a participatory 2.0 world? What is connected (21st Century) learning? Who are connected educators? What does it look like?Collective Wondering in Backchannel or with eachother… What do you wonder about connected learning?Be curious. How do you define it?
    16. 16. Do it Yourself PDA revolution in technology has transformed the way • THE CONNECTED EDUCATORwe can find each other, interact, and collaborate tocreate knowledge as connected learners.What are connected learners?Learners who collaborate online: learners who usesocial media to connect with others around the globe:learners who engage in conversations in onlinespaces: learners who bring what they learn back toinform their classrooms, schools, districts, and theworld.

    18. 18. Free range learnersFree-range learners choosehow and what they learn. Self-service is less expensive andmore timely than thealternative. Informal learninghas no need for the busywork,chrome, and bureaucracy thataccompany typical classroominstruction. 28
    19. 19. Mobile ComputingSmart Phones The mobile market has: 4 billion subscribers, three-fourths of whom live in developing countries. Over a billion new phones are produced each year, and the fastest- growing sales segment belongs to smart phones —
    20. 20. Open ContentRelevance for Teaching, Learning & CreativeExpressionOpen content allows teachers tocustomize their courses quickly and inexpensively and keepup with emerging informationand ideas.Communities of practice and learner groups thatform around open content provide a sourceof support for independent or life-long learners.
    21. 21. Electronic BooksElectronic books are now accessible via awide variety of readers, from dedicatedreader platforms like the Kindle toapplications designed for mobilephones, and are enjoying wide consumeradoption.Electronic books can be a portable andcost-effective alternative to buyingprinted books, although most platformslack featuresto support advanced reading and editingtasks such asannotation, collaboration, real-timeupdates, and content remixing.

    25. 25. Be a learner first--educator second• Its all about asking hard questions and then listening deeply• A connected learner isn’t afraid to admit that they don’t know the answerto a question or problem, and willingly invite others into a dialogue toexplore, discuss, debate, or generate more questions. (@barb_english)• Asking our questions out in the open in connected ways @lisaneale• I believe that being a connected learner leads to more questions thananswers and that is good. I also believe that connected learners have tolearn to take risks - exposing your learning and thoughts can be challenging@ccoffa• Lurkers become learners. Learners become contributors. @sjhayes8
    26. 26. Community is built through the co-construction of knowledgeBE collaborative. Own it. Share with others.nvest in personal knowledge building so what you share with otherswill be of value.The power of connections leads to collective efficacy, collective wisdomand long standing collective intelligenceConnected learners talk to strangers. We do not have to know thepeople with whom we are co-learning, co-constructing, co-creating.Do you know--what who you know--knows? Leverage collectivewisdom.Innovation comes from wildly diverse experiences and looseconnections
    27. 27. Networks are not enough. PLCs are not enough.We need a 3-prong approach. Connected Learning Communities In CLCs educators have several ways to connect and collaborate: • F2F learning communities (PLCs) • Personal learning networks (PLNs) • Communities of practice or inquiry (CoPs)
    28. 28. Making connections In connectivism, learning involves creating connections and developing a network. It is a theory for the digital age drawing uponchaos, emergent properties, and self organized learning.(It’s not what you know, or who you know- but do you know what who you know- knows? ) Source: Wikipedia

Thereal power of tribeshas nothing to dowith the Internet andeverything to do withpeople.”
    32. 32. “In a time of drastic change it is the learners who inherit the future. The learned usually find themselves equipped to live in a world that no longer exists.” -- Eric Hoffer, Reflections on the Human ConditionAre there new Literacies- and if so, what are they?

SITE 2006 IEA Second Information Technology in Education Study• 9000 School• 35,000 math and science teachers in 22 countries How are teachers using technology in their instruction?Law, N., Pelgrum, W.J. & Plomp, T. (eds.) (2008). Pedagogy and ICT use in schools around the world: Findings from the IEA SITES 2006 study. Hong Kong
    41. 41. FindingsIncreased technology use does not lead to student learning. Rather, effectiveness of technology use depended on teaching approaches used in conjunction with the technology.How you integrate matters- not just the technology alone.As long as we see content, technology and pedagogy as separate- technology will always be just an add on.
    42. 42. How do you do it?-- TPCK and Understanding by Design There is a new curriculum design model that helps us think about how to make assessment part of learning. Assessment before , during, and after instruction. Teacher and Students as Co-Curriculum Designers1. What do you want to know and be able to do at the end of this activity, project, or lesson?2. What evidence will you collect to prove mastery? (What will you create or do)3. What is the best way to learn what you want to learn?4. How are you making your learning transparent? (connected learning)

    46. 46. Education for Citizenship“A capable and productive citizen doesn’t simply turn upfor jury service. Rather, she is capable of servingimpartially on trials that may require learning unfamiliarfacts and concepts and new ways to communicate andreach decisions with her fellow jurors…. Jurors may becalled on to decide complex matters that require theverbal, reasoning, math, science, and socialization skillsthat should be imparted in public schools. Jurors todaymust determine questions of fact concerning DNAevidence, statistical analyses, and convoluted financialfraud, to name only three topics.” Justice Leland DeGrasse, 2001 58
