Published on

Shared August 7, 2012, in Missoula, Montana: Interested in helping students become better readers, writers, and critical thinkers? We need to “play with media” to become more effective communicators and improve our media literacy skills as both learners and citizens. As you learn to play with digital text, images, audio and video, you will communicate more creatively and flexibly with a wider variety of options. Author and educator Wesley Fryer will inspire and empower you, as a creative person, to expand your personal senses of digital literacy and digital agency as a multimedia communicator! Learn more, order Wesley’s eBook, and access session resources on www.playingwithmedia.com.

  17. 17. “As for enhanced efficiency in learning and teaching,there have been no advances (measured by higheracademic achievement of urban, suburban, or ruralstudents) over the last decade that can be confidentlyattributed to broader access to computers. Nosurprise here, as the debate over whether newtechnologies have increased overall Americaneconomic productivity also has had no clear answers.The link between test score improvements andcomputer availability and use is even more contested.”Dr Larry Cuban. Oversold and Underused: Computers in theClassroom. Harvard University Press. 2003. ISBN: 0674011090. pages178-179.
  18. 18. Michael Horn(2008) www.flickr.com/photos/wfryer/3349773813/
  19. 19. “…the billions schools have spent on computers havehad little effect on how teachers and students learn…The reason for this disappointing result is that the wayschools have employed computers has been perfectlypredictable, perfectly logical– and perfectly wrong. As weshow in this chapter, schools have crammed them intoclassrooms to sustain and marginally improve the waythey already teach and run their schools, just as mostorganizations do when they attempt to implementinnovations, including computers. Using computers thisway will never allow schools to migrate to a student-centric classroom.”Christensen, Horn & Johnson. Disrupting Class: How DisruptiveInnovation Will Change the Way the World Learns. McGraw Hill.2008. Pages 72-73.

  29. 29. ...when assigning a project, teachers look formastery of content and allow students to takeownership of how they present that content. Ateacher may ask students to demonstrate theirknowledge of photosynthesis, but rather thangive them a specific means of doing so, will allowthe students to use any available resources to doso. This not only gets the students innovatingmore as they navigate through this task, butmore importantly makes each student’sexperience unique and gives them ownershipover the product they produce. Some students 15 Marchmay make posters, some a voicethread, some a 2012powerpoint or prezi, but this should be noproblem for the educator as they are assessingon mastery learning objectives and not actualmeans of presenting them. http://theoffbeatmaestro.wordpress.com/2012/03/15/new-england-11-summit-2/
