  • Handouts: -package: metacognition sheet, Web 2.0 World mini poster, Blogging in the Classroom, Helpful Websites *place on chairs prior to participants arriving -DI handbook in French for each department head
  • If we teach today the way we were taught yesterday we aren’t preparing students for today or tomorrow. It’s time to let our students create… The rate of change in society compared with the rate of change in education is somewhat troubling. In every other sector, change (from conception to implementation) takes roughly 5-10 years, but in education it’s 35-50. We have an opportunity to catch up to the social milieu in our efforts to make learning engaging and relevant for all students.
  • ANSWER: YES  hardware, software, web-based applications, microscopes, calculators, etc.  TOOLS  hybrid spaces -important to validate the learning that takes place outside of school with regards to the use of technologies and the kinds of work that students do  global citizenship -has allowed for mass mobilization  real-world tools to do real-world work
  • ANSWER: NO  comes down to good pedagogy (e.g. Inquiry-based learning, John Dewey – 1915)  meaningful learning is more likely to take place in an environment that is facilitated by a teacher who invites co-responsibility and mutual respect  students require a broader range of learning options to customize learning and improve chances of success outside of school  explicit teaching is a must to take learning into cyber space  student data continues to demonstrate that the single most important and influential variable in student achievement is the caring adult in the classroom
  • This was the last time the word “revolution” and “knowledge” were used in the same context. For the most part, we have been retrieving knowledge in the exact same manner ever since the advent of Guttenburg printing press. Consider… If a surgeon from the 18 th were to walk into a modern-day OR, would he be able to perform any procedure?  Not likely… what we know about the human body, how we have come to learn about the human body and the ways in which we treat the human body have all evolved. If a teacher from the 18 th were to walk into a modern day classroom, would she still be able to teach?  Probably… Have our methods really changed? Sure, some of the information is different, but that’s nothing a little bit of extra reading and research can’t fix.
  • The nature of knowledge is changing.  it is no longer constant  it is not static  it is evolving  constantly being constructed, deconstructed and reconstructed
  • Said by Pope Benedict XVI, 24 January 2009 *Mouse click, picture of the Pope with “fly in”; click on picture to hyperlink to www.pope2you.net  emphasis on the importance of priests using new technologies -refer to issues of Professionally Speaking and Educational Leadership – articles that emphasize the importance of teaching our students the ethical use these technologies, as opposed to shying away from them
  • Click on “B” in slide show mode to link to blogger.com
  • Click orange “i” button to link to Le Petit Prince class blog  an example of how to use a blog for a book study/extended unit of study Click yellow “i” button to link to typeit.org  an online tool that helps students to easily type with accents with pre-programmed buttons vs. cumbersome accent codes; text can be copied and pasted into
