Mapping Media to the Common Core with iPads (Dec 2013)


Published on

These are Dr. Wesley Fryer's presentation slides on December 3, 2013, at the Interactive Learning Institute in Norman, Oklahoma. The presentation description was: Digital literacy today means much more than searching the Internet and using Microsoft Office. To be digitally literate, teachers as well as students need to be able to create and share online a variety of different multimedia products. These media products can be “mapped” to your curriculum, and if you’re in a Common Core state in the United States, to the Common Core State Standards. Interactive Writing, Narrated Art, 5 Photo Stories, Narrated Slideshows, Screencasts, Quick Edit Videos, and eBooks are a few of the media products learners should be able to create and safely share online. In this session, we’ll view different examples of student media products and learn about tools and strategies for helping teachers become digitally literate as “media mappers” specifically with iPads. We’ll also explore how librarians and instructional coaches can use the “Mapping Media to the Curriculum” website as a roadmap to help teachers and students create media products as assignments for class and as artifacts in digital portfolios.

  13. 13. “Australia’s Telstra and its mobile network supplier Ericsson have completed a live network trial of a new LTE technology that essentially splices two entirely different parts of the electromagnetic spectrum together, creating a kind of superconnection to the mobile network... To put it in perspective, it’s about four times as fast as anything we have today in the U.S. and two or three times faster than networks in Europe or Canada. But North America and the old world aren’t too far behind... As for the technology’s practical use, the obvious advantage is speed, though at certain point there’s not much difference between a 15 Mbps connection and a 50 Mbps connection on a smartphone.

  22. 22. I know from watching and listening all over the country in schools and in workshops, however, that many educators have become less creative, more timid and unimaginative, and have indeed lost pride in their work in the face of how heavy-handed the states have been in promulgating this retro and harmful “accountability”. Why is not the state responsible for ensuring that the incentives are right and the resources are available to do the work well? States should have to be accountable for how local leaders interpre their mandates. But states wash their hands of the problem of change; they merely issue mandates. So, teachers become brow-beaten by scores, encouraged to do test prep, and in general, down the authority line, to teach worse rather than better – somehow in the name of “standards.”
  23. 23. too many people today believe in the power of TECHNOLOGY & TESTING rather than the power of WORDS & PASSIONATE PEOPLE

  29. 29. It starts in kindergarten:! “With prompting and support, describe the relationship! between illustrations and the text in which they appear! (e.g., what person, place thing, or idea in the text an! illustration depicts).”! In 4th grade it becomes:! “Integrate information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively) as well as in words to develop a coherent understanding of a topic or issue.”! In 8th grade students must:! “Evaluate the advantages and disadvantages of using different mediums (e.g., print or digital text, video, multimedia) to present a particular topic or idea”! And in 12th grade students must:! “Integrate and evaluate multiple sources of information presented in different media or formats (e.g., visually, quantitatively) as well as in words in order to address a question or a problem.” Wood, Joe. “Digital Writing & Common Core.” JoeWoodOnline, November 15, 2011.
