Managing Change - Junior Cycle and Technology

  1. 1. | | @myschoolwise | #reclaimyourday Leslie Turner | Co-founder Learning Management and Performance Platform NSPI 2017
  2. 2. Planning for the JC utilising Tech • The planning process – some considerations (JC and Tech) • Demo • How to unify planning across the subject department to ensure a consistent and collaborative approach • Delivering your planning and involving students in the process through sharing • How planning can be an iterative and organic process • Assessment of students and of planning • Closed loop and self evaluation NSPI 2017
  3. 3. Background and Context NSPI 2017
  4. 4. Fear of change – sorry get used to it NSPI 2017
  5. 5. Awareness is the greatest agent for change NSPI 2017 = Change+ We are here to stay!
  6. 6. NSPI 2017 Awareness and Acceptance (Turning Point) STAGE 1 STAGE 2 STAGE 3 Elisabeth Kübler-Ross Success Plan (Steps to Success)
  7. 7. Want vs Need NSPI 2017 What do I want to do? What do I have to do? Shelf of shame
  8. 8. What is the end goal - what does it look like? • What does a successful implementation look like? • Picture it in your mind and describe it • Work back from here • Put the steps or milestones in place to get there (climb) • What does a disastrous implementation look like? • Picture it in your mind and describe it • Work back from here • Put the steps or measures in place to never let it happen NSPI 2017
  9. 9. Start with Why? • Why are we doing this? • How will we get there? • What does success look like? NSPI 2017 Students Me Dept / School
  10. 10. For tech’s sake! NSPI 2017 Move away from “just” using tech to more “meaningful” uses of tech in teaching and learning Dr. Ruben Puentedura's SAMR Model
  11. 11. NSPI 2017 SUBSTITUTION AUGMENTATION MODIFICATION REDEFINITION ENHANCEMENT TRANSFORMATION Task RedesignFunctional Improvement No Functional Change New Tasks Learning Outcomes Key Skills Statements of Learning SLAR Strands Strand Elements AfL/Formative Assessment CBA’s SAMR - New Junior Cycle Collaboration Sharing Involving Students Planning Resources What works and you know to be true Summative Assessment Iteration / Constant Change / Learning
  12. 12. NSPI 2017 Diffusion of Innovation – will everyone use it? Diffusion of innovation is a theory that seeks to explain how, why, and at what rate new ideas and technology spread
  13. 13. NSPI 2017Thread New Paths Old Paths Grow Over Best Practice New Junior Cycle / Tech Current Junior Cert / No Tech Success
  14. 14. Take away the fears • Sharing is caring (content, resources, knowledge and help) • Just because you downloaded it doesn’t mean you own it • You get out what you put in • JCT Training and JC Co-ordinator (Steps and support to success) • CPD and Peer Learning • External sources but learning from each other works better • Small steps but have a plan (“If you fail to plan, you are planning to fail!”) • Remember what success looks like and work back from there • Don’t loose anyone along the way NSPI 2017
  15. 15. Prepare for tech / platform • Standard for everything – have one – it’s a must – it’s a must – it’s a must • Learning Resources (Where, what, formats – have a standard) • Choose your tech carefully (alignment, ease of use, relevance) • Less is more (more is complicated – complicated does not scale/work) • Tech should take tech out of the way (enabler vs replacement) • Make sure your tech talks with each other • Sticky plasters are not forever (just because it works does not mean it works or will work for everyone / long term / scalable) NSPI 2017

Editor's Notes

  • Me and SchoolWise

    JC and Technology – We are an enabler and I am going to talk about them together

    Use tech to help scaffold the JC – tech has meaning and purpose

    The change process – how JC and Tech affect this

    Make life easier | reduce stress and worry | give you back the time to do what you love doing | quality of time spent with students and teaching | help you along the way | improve going forward
  • Change is normal
    Fact of life so get used to it
    It happens whether we like it or not
    So when we talk about the new JC and technology – the both introduce change
  • Change does not always have to be a bad thing
    Aware that it is coming, its here, it happens – embrace and accept it allows you to move on - improve
  • Subject plans had to be done – but for what purpose – not to gather dust and never be used
    I want to do it my way
    I want to use my resources – their mine
    I want to use my own plan
    My way works
    I have to do a plan for the inspectorate
    I have to do the junior cycle
    I have to….
  • When we plan for the new Junior Cycle and for technology – what does success look like (students – me – dept – school)
    What are we trying to achieve

    Why are we doing this?
  • Why are we doing this plan – outcome or result (What will students be able to do at the end of this)

    Why are we bringing in this piece of tech – end goal – not just for the sake of it
  • Substitution – Acetate to a projector or paper to electronic format (book to tablet) | take attendance electronically instead of roll book

    Augmentation – Interactive board or use video or hyperlinks in presentations – forms for quizzes

    Modification – students record their work voice or video / subject electronic work which can be annotated or voice comments / Use a platform for centralising your resources as a department

    Redefinition – Students group together using a virtual whiteboard to create work / you could do subject planning collaboratively via a platform and link interactive resources and use an online scheduler
