  1. 1. In this session• Why we are welcoming devices• What to expect• What tools are available• Support for staff• The partially integrated classroom• Classroom management• Question time
  2. 2. What year are we preparing our students for?Currently education is preparing learners to live successfully in the year… Heidi Hayes Jacobs, Curriculum 21: essential Education for a Changing World. ASCD, 2010.
  3. 3. What are the benefits?Benefits to learners with access to ICT in the classroom include: Supporting motivation and engagement through learners being able to connect in groups and express creativity. Allowing learners to learn independently and personalise their learning. They can readily access support when needed and reflect more easily. Learners develop critical thinking skills and deeper understandings through collaborating with others. ICT tools make information and knowledge quickly and flexibly accessible. Learners can navigate information in a way that suits them. Collaboration extends to wider contexts with the integration of ICT tools. This has a positive impact on social, cognitive and affective domains.Adapted: Noeline Wright, E-Learning and New Zealand Schools: A Literature Review. Ministry of Education 2010.

  4. 4. Student perspectiveVideo here of students perspectives
  5. 5. What to expect Netbooks Laptops Tablets It is a student’s responsibility, not the teachers, tomanage and monitor their own device. All students will sign the ICT user agreement acknowledging their responsibilities.
  6. 6. What to expect Laptops: These have full functionality. Students with laptops will likely have access to a range of software and they will be able to play CDRoms and DVDs on their devices also. Netbooks: They are similar to a laptop. Netbooks mainly provide internet access and may have a number of software applications, depending on the brand of the device. Tablets : Provide internet access and a number of applications, depending on the brand of device. They use touch screen technology. It does not have a mouse and keyboard like the laptops/netbooks, but it can be used for word processing. The most popular tablet is the iPad.
  7. 7. What tools might students use?Students will have access to a range of tools. They might access some tools using the internet or use applications built into their device.
  8. 8. What tools might students use? RangiNet: serves as a hub from where students can access anything uploaded to it. They can store work, data and links in a safe place. They can access links to places their teachers want them to go or complete assignments. Google Docs: Is cloud computing (where data is created and stored on the internet). Student can use it in place of Word, Powerpoint and Excel. It will be linked to RangiNet in the near future so students login to Google Docs when they login to RangiNet. My Portfolio: A place where students create and store online portfolios and collections of work which they can share easily with others. Will be linked to RangiNet in the near future so students login to MyPortfolio when they login to RangiNet.
  9. 9. What tools might students use? Software applications: These are programmes that are on your computer. The most well known of these are Microsoft Office tools such as Word, Excel and Powerpoint. Internet applications: These are programmes available on the internet. Students would access these by a visiting a particular website e.g. Glogster, Wallwisher. Students can download apps from the internet on to their device e.g Google Earth
  10. 10. What tools are students using? Video here with students telling us what tools they already use
  11. 11. DiscussionWhat opportunities can/have we created for our students that bring devices?
  12. 12. Support for staff Students will be made aware of their StudentGuidelines responsibilities for their devices through the ICT user agreement. Staff Advice and guidance for staff regarding device use. FAQ Ongoing Offered by PD Lead Group: PD on specific strategies PD and tools that facilitate 21st century learning. IT Students will not get technical support for their Support devices - however staff and students will be supported in accessing the wireless network.
  13. 13. What is the partially integrated classroom?In reality you will not have 100% ofyour students coming to school withdevices in February. Realisticallydevice users will initially make up asmall proportion of your class.It is vital that those studentsbringing devices are using them foreducational purposes. There shouldbe a clear benefit in terms of theirengagement and progression withtheir work. The following videos are examples of partially integrated classrooms already present in the College.
  14. 14. Partially integrated classroom #1Carolyn Phillips13 PhysicsA small number ofstudents in Carolyn’s Video showing a13PHY class regularlybring laptops. The partiallystudents use thesedevices for note taking integratedand to access a CD Romof a the Physics Physicstextbook. This givesthem access to classroomactivities, animationsand infographics thatthey would not haveaccess to. Discussion: How was the room managed by this teacher?

  19. 19. Classroom managementMost issues arising from student use of devices can be managed by staff using the current behaviour management policies. Consider each of the following possible issues and discuss an appropriate solution. What do you think should happen?
  20. 20. Solutions to possible issuesA student has repeatedly used their device to engage in off task behaviour despitewarnings from teacher (e.g. going on inappropriate websites or social networks.)Ask the student to put the device away and follow up using the normal behaviourstrategy.A student suffers a technical issue that prevents them from using their device orcauses them to lose work.Ask the student to put the device away and continue with the work in a traditionalmanner (e.g. in their workbook).A student is using their device to inappropriately communicate with other studentsvia social networking, instant messaging or text.Ask the student to return to being on task. In the event of repeated instances followthe behaviour strategy.
  21. 21. Solutions to possible issuesA student has unsuitable material displayed on their workspace (e.g pornographicimagery).Ask their student to close their device immediately and report matter to a dean/HODpromptly. If students have access to inappropriate website report to IT dept.A student without a device is attempting to access another students device withoutpermission.Warn the student about their conduct, consider strategies such as moving thatstudent away to another seat. In the event of repeated instances follow the behaviourstrategy.Student claims that they cannot complete a task because they have left their device athome.Advise the student to continue with the work in a traditional manner e.g. in theirworkbook. If assessment work is compromised consult department procedures.Student reports on arrival to class that their device has been stolen or seriouslydamaged.Refer the student to the deans at an appropriate time as is the case of any theft.
  22. 22. Where to next?• At the next session your HOD will be sharing with you department specific resources and strategies for helping you with your partially integrated classroom. You may have already been working in departments towards this.• If you have any further questions regarding student devices please feedback to the presenter on the sheet provided.
