Revised annual plan_2010

  1. 1. Revised Annual Plan 2010 Strategic Goal: to enhance high quality learning with the use of ICTs
  2. 2. Research: "The technology is not the focus of the learning, but it provides an essential vehicle for getting to the destination ...The inquiry - what the student wants to learn - provides the fuel for the vehicle. Without fuel the vehicle is useless." Owens, Hester & Teale, 2002
  3. 3. Annual Goal: by November 2011 90% of students will often use a computer in their learning Our goal has been driven by the student engagement survey and the 3 Year ICT PD Ministry contract we are currently involved in e-tools are a vehicle for learning It is important our school community (children, staff, parents & BOT) to understand why they using the technology - it needs to be embedded into the learning in our classroom programmes
  4. 4. What has happened so far? Strategies to meet annual plan
  5. 5. The infrastructure journey so far...

  8. 8. What next? Strategies to meet annual plan
  9. 9. The Model of Professional Development at Tahunanui We have embarked on a personalised professional development for individual teachers: 1:1 release with lead e-learning teacher - to personalise professional development (45 minute session x2 per term) Lead e-learning teachers to work with teachers and their class in the e-space and in the classroom Teachers developing their individual goals set in 1:1 sessions in their CRT time through e-tools or professional reading
  10. 10. Purpose of 1:1 sessions with teachers Make syndicate I.C.T. goals more precise Personalise professional development Identify who can help achieve goals Identify I.C.T.s to be used on the cluster wide walk through (The four points/purposes for 1:1 sessions are interelated)
  11. 11. Where will our infrastructure and professional development journey take us next? SNUP upgrades Aligning teaching & learning models with our school value Developing our classrooms for 21st century learning Identifying the best use and distribution of e-tools & hardware across the school
  12. 12. “Imagine saying to your students, ‘Okay class, now we’re all going to get up and go down the hall to the room where the pens are.” Mary Cuillane (Microsoft)
  13. 13. "The research (Becker, 2000; Norris, Sullivan, Poirot & Soloway, 2003; Ravitz, Wong and Becker,1998) supports computers being located in classrooms if they are going to be used by teachers and students. Additionally, having computers in labs means it is not as easy to integrate computers into the classroom programme or for teachers and students to use them as they would any other classroom tool..." Jan-Marie Kellow http://www.inquiringmind.co.nz/: Welcome to the Inquiring Mind site. This site is a collection of information, research results and resources about inquiry learning that I compiled during my time as a Ministry of Education e-learning fellow. The views expressed on this website are my own, developed through research, reading and over 20 years experience in the classroom.
  14. 14. Research: "The technology is not the focus of the learning, but it provides an essential vehicle for getting to the destination ...The inquiry - what the student wants to learn - provides the fuel for the vehicle. Without fuel the vehicle is useless." Owens, Hester & Teale, 2002
  15. 15. "...1:5 or 1:6 ratio in the classroom and then a shared mobile pod of wireless laptops to bring the ratio down to 1:2 when needed. This solution is a lower cost alternative, takes less space and the computers would be able to move to areas of need rather than lying idle (McKenzie, 2001)." Jan-Marie Kellow
  16. 16. When thinking about what constitutes an ICT-rich classroom environment Jan-Marie Kellow states the research of Wilson: Wilson (1995) defines this as " a place where learners may work together and support each other as they use a variety of tools and information resources in their pursuit of learning goals and problem-solving activities." Jan-Marie Kellow
  17. 17. Web 2.0 Applications Using the computer within our classroom programmes
  18. 18. Why use Web 2.0? Web 2.0 can... Create opportunities for students to reflect on and discuss what they are learning Practice the written expression of ideas and opinions with an authentic audience Help students explore classroom learning through what others have written Receive support and feedback on their own ideas through teacher/peer comments Learn about and practice collaboration, respect, and relating to others online Promote the overall teaching and learning goals of the classroom information from netsafe.org.nz
  19. 19. Health & Safety protecting and respecting ourselves & others online
  20. 20. So far at Tahunanui we have... Created cyber safety agreements for senior & junior students which are signed by students & parents Created cyber safety agreements for staff Provided cyber information at the KOS parents evening (John Parsons from Stimulate 2 Educate) Used Web 2.0 tools to provide a safe platform for students to explore issues of cyber safety and develop a code of ethics to help them protect and respect themselves & others on line
  21. 21. Suggestions for where to next... Implement structured unit/lesson plans based around cyber safety, digital citizenship & respecting and protecting on line identities Turn our senior and junior cyber safety agreements into 'living documents' Continue to use Web 2.0 tools to provide a safe platform for students to explore issues of cyber safety and develop a code of ethics to help them protect and respect themselves & others on line Year 5/6 partake in digital health & safety, a staff meeting (and another parent evening?) with John Parsons from Stimulate 2 Educate.
  22. 22. infrastructure - use of e-tools - health & safety We need to be continually reflecting upon and adapting our pedagogy and androgogy to enable our school community to become... ...confident, connected, actively involved and life long learners. Page 8 NZC
