Pa part 2

  1. 1. Plantel Azteca Technology The Next Step By Lori Brouillette for Project Inkwell ©2010
  2. 2. 21st Century Skills <ul><li>Project Inkwell’s goal is to develop a technology program aligned with national educational standards that will prepare Plantel Azteca students to meet the needs of a global society. </li></ul>
  3. 3. Components
  4. 4. Students <ul><li>Today’s students are digital natives. Unlike their teachers (mostly digital immigrants), they have always known technology. </li></ul><ul><li>The industrial age of education, producing graduates like a factory line, does not work for the interconnected global society we now live in. </li></ul><ul><li>Click here: Jovenes del Futuro video </li></ul>
  5. 5. Global Learning in the Digital Age <ul><li>As foundational information and communication technologies (ICT) skills penetrate throughout our society, students will be expected to apply the basics in authentic, integrated ways to solve problems, complete projects, and creatively extend their abilities. </li></ul><ul><li>ICT abilities help students prepare to work, live, and contribute to the social and civic fabric of their communities. </li></ul><ul><li>The new standards identify several higher-order thinking skills and digital citizenship as critical for students to learn effectively for a lifetime and live productively in our emerging global society. </li></ul>Source: ISTE
  6. 6. Students <ul><li>Global Digital Divide </li></ul><ul><ul><li>The gap between those with access to technology and digital information, and those with limited or no access to it. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>It is commensurate with a knowledge gap. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Students <ul><li>If Plantel Azteca wants to maintain its superior academic ranking, improve student learning, and remain competitive with other private and public schools, it will need to embrace a complete technology program. </li></ul>
  8. 8. ITC in Mexico’s Public Schools <ul><li>The Mexican Ministry of Education has begun a comprehensive educational technology project for all public schools. </li></ul><ul><li>Habilidades Digitales para Todos strives to ensure that technology is available for all basic education students in Mexico. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1:1 (student to computer) ratio for ICT environment. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>By 2012, all 92,000 public schools will have Internet access. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Teacher Training & Certification includes technology pedagogy. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>New teachers act as technology mentors to veteran educators. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Training for veteran teachers available around the country. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Technology lessons aligned with national curriculum are available online. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Additional Information: </li></ul><ul><ul><li> Secretaria de Educacion Guerrero </li></ul></ul>
  9. 9. Equipment <ul><li>Hardware </li></ul><ul><li>Connectivity </li></ul><ul><li>Software </li></ul><ul><li>Access </li></ul>
  10. 10. Hardware <ul><li>Interactive Whiteboard </li></ul><ul><li>Projector </li></ul><ul><li>Speakers </li></ul><ul><li>Teacher computer </li></ul><ul><li>Student computers </li></ul><ul><li>Printer </li></ul><ul><li>Complimentary Equipment: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Digital camera </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Video camera </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Document camera </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Hardware <ul><li>Interactive Whiteboard </li></ul><ul><li>Projector </li></ul><ul><li>Speakers </li></ul><ul><li>Teacher computer </li></ul><ul><li>These items allow the teacher to access the Internet and model technology usage for students. </li></ul><ul><li>If computers are not available to students, these combined pieces give students some access and exposure to digital/global world. </li></ul>
  12. 12. Connectivity <ul><li>Broadband Internet connectivity </li></ul><ul><li>Wireless provides more freedom for student learning </li></ul><ul><li>Challenging because of Mexico’s low bandwidth. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Ministry of Education’s goal is to provide Wi-Max (a way to provide Internet) to all of the country’s public schools by 2012. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Cellular phone data transfer (via Smartphones) is another option for providing connectivity. </li></ul>
  13. 13. Software <ul><li>Basic software for educational student projects, demonstrations, simulations, lesson planning/student management, and work preparation. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Word processing, spreadsheets, slide show presentations, photo editing, and Internet browser. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Many choices available for free through Internet, but may require downloading to a computer. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Web 2.0 tools </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Free interactive applications </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Shareware programs </li></ul>
  14. 14. Access <ul><li>For improved student achievement and best return-on-investment of computer purchases, students and teachers need full access to technology and Internet. </li></ul><ul><li>Ideal environment: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>1:1 classrooms with interactive whiteboards </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Netbooks (mini-computers) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Laptops </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Mobile, movable computers are better for projects rather than classroom setting. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PCs in classroom </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Best case scenario: computers that are assigned to each student/teacher that they may take home with them. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Student does not stop learning when they leave the school. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Students have been shown to take better care of equipment when it’s “theirs.” </li></ul></ul>
  15. 15. Pedagogy <ul><li>Pedagogy (strategies for instruction) must differ with technology. </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers need a different mind-set when teaching with technology. </li></ul><ul><li>Instruction shifts from teacher as “provider” of knowledge to teacher as “guide” to knowledge. </li></ul><ul><li>ICT allows students to explore, deepen and globally collaborate their own learning. </li></ul><ul><li>Additional information: Educacíon Expandida video </li></ul>
  16. 16. Pedagogy <ul><li>Content Guides </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mexico has technology content guides that meet the national curriculum standards posted on the Internet. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Guides are available via </li></ul></ul>
