It is as much about the learning space as it is about the curriculum and the technlogy.
This is not the way we want to go out.
New is Better – Change can Be Good.
Use the Document for main points. Quick discussion of what a 21st Century Classroom looks like. Focus on changing: classroom space, technology and curriculum.
This is an iPod App called “I Am T-Pain” http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/i-am-t-pain/id314652382?mt=8&ign-mpt=uo%3D4 The developer, Ge Wang was a music teacher. He has made quite a bit of money. His new popular app is Ocarina. (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfrONZjakRY )

Focus on a few of the individual tools on the next several slides
This is the mimeo vote student response system. Used for individual students or small groups to respond to teacher questions. Data can be analyzed and shared with the class.
This projector will turn any white space into an interactive whiteboard. You can manipulate the desktop / applications on an attached computer and record writing.
A secondary device like an touchscreenlcd or an LCD with a Mimeo teach can be used to display student questions or for student work. Very portable.
Variety of collaborative uses for these.
Upgrade to the old school overhead projector.
This is a vision that goes beyond just the technology. The whole space can be a collaborative learning environment. Think Google!The paint works on any smooth surface to create an erasable whiteboard.
Technology is not cheap, but creative schools can find ways to fund the resource. It may also even lead to lower costs if some curriculum can replace textbooks with free or low cost digital resources.
This is a list of what could be a typical classroom and estimated costs. This would be a full 21st Century classroom. Future classrooms might focus on few items depending on the curriculum.
Makes the point that anything is possible when you open the door. This is actually not real. It was part of Gatorade campaign: http://www.snopes.com/photos/advertisements/ballgirl.asp, http://www.bestads.tv/view/1882/gatorade-ball-girl/

Why Create a 21st Century Classroom?<br />“Every child in America needs to be ready for today’s and tomorrow’s world. A profound gap exists between the knowledge and skills most students learn in school and the knowledge and skills they need for success in their communities and workplaces.”<br />

Cost Effectiveness<br />The question is, what does it take to make technology effective, and how much does that cost? <br />Costs will be variable, but free resources, shifting expenditures and new less expensive technologies make technology spending both possible as well as essential.<br />
