  • Or perhaps the NCLB video.Mention that this is a digital story – they will be responsible for creating their own digital story in lab this week. How do you see education shifting? Tell us your digital story…
  • 5 minutes max.Pre-lecture activity – must finish by 11:00am on Monday morning…Remind them to contact their lab instructor if they have any problems. I’m a secondary contact. Their lab instructors will know all about where they need to go for particular assignments. They give the final grade.
  • THE SHIFT HIT THE FAN – Reached as far as Mississippiand Indiana.SHIFT OR GET OFF THE POT – you will have to deal with these changes. They will affect you and your job and your career.
  • We basically have two separate shifts in education today. The first being
  • There are certain things you need to teach them, but as we learned from the pre-lecture activity, they have a different view of processing information.Theyalways had access to technology – they’ve never know a world without it. They will be expecting a lot more technology. Think about if you never used technology during the day and you were being asked to use it all the time. How would you do in that environment? Would that prepare you for what you do on a regular basis?Now think about digital natives. Review the pre-lecture activities.Nothing you can do about either of these, but you have POWER in between
  • Lecture 2 Students The Shift Collides

    1. 1. No Future Left Behind<br />Education – what will it be like…SHOW AS THEY COME IN…<br />
    2. 2. Technology Integration for Standards-Based Education<br />When Shifts Collide!<br />Week 2<br />
    3. 3. Housekeeping<br />Any problems?<br />Questions?<br />Syllabus<br />Pre-lecture activity<br />Lecture worksheets<br />Lab instructors<br />
    4. 4. Objectives from First Lecture<br />-- To understand how digital technology and communication have affected education (and everything else) in “flattening” the world <br />SHIFT HAPPENS<br />-- To see how far reaching technology has become (and will continue to become) in education<br />THE SHIFT HITS THE FAN<br />--To get excited about the prospect of teachingin a high-tech, flat world!<br />SHIFT OR GET OFF THE POT<br />
    5. 5. Agenda<br />Two shifts in education<br />Educating the Digital Generation<br />Digital Natives<br />No Child Left Behind<br />Academic Standards for Students<br />What happens when shifts collide?<br />
    6. 6. Digital Natives<br />It’s only going to get worse…<br />
    7. 7. Your Descriptions of Digital Natives<br />……Overall, a &quot;digital native&quot; is a student in today&apos;s society has completely different way of thinking, learning, use of language, and communication because they were born in to a digital world.<br />A digital student…has grown up in the age of technology. They have been surrounded…and as a result of this has changed the way their brains operate and process information. <br />School is like learning a a foreign language to Digital Natives. For Digital Natives, this makes school very slow and uninteresting because they are used to receiving information quickly and multi-tasking.<br />They feel like they should watch a video or search the internet to find out information. They cannot stay focused or pay attention if their teacher is just up in front of the classroom telling them information.<br />My 14-year-old brother is in a class that received laptops across the entire grade. They no longer have text books and use online software to turn in their assignments. By the time he&apos;s twenty like myself, he&apos;s not even going to be able to imagine a classroom without technology like that.<br />
    8. 8. Students prefer learning that is quick-paced and entertaining. Our practices need to adapt to their learning style in order to achieve maximum success.<br />We do need to realize that the youth of America is changing and we need to do our absolute best to prepare them. <br />I think teachers should change their current ways of educating. If technology is how our students will learn best, we should accommodate that. Why should we make learning frustrating if students will do poorly? <br />I believe that we should do everything we can to comply to students’ needs because they are the future of the world.<br />We as teachers must learn to adapt our methods to get through to these &quot;digital natives.”<br />I think teachers need to change their practices in order to not only keep in touch with students&apos; technology, but in order to keep students interested in the subject matter. If a student feels as though they are wasting their time by going to class, something needs to change. The fact I consider myself halfway a digital native makes me excited to become a teacher because I know I am more capable…<br />
    9. 9. What are teachers responsible for…<br />How can we use technology to prepare our students for their futures?<br />
    10. 10. Educating… The Digital Generation<br />
    11. 11. No Child Left Behind<br />It’s the law… as of 2001<br />
    12. 12. NCLB - Summary<br />By 2013-14, all students are proficient or better in reading/language arts and mathematics<br />Including limited English proficient students<br />By SY 2005-06, all students will be taught by highly qualified teachers.<br />All students will be technology-literature by eighth grade<br />All studentsgraduate from high school<br />
    13. 13. NCLB - Summary<br />Accountability Measures<br />Typically standardized tests<br />Must make (AYP) Adequate Yearly Progress in test scores (e.g. each year, its fifth graders must do better on standardized tests than the previous years)<br />Fails to make AYP<br />Put on a list of &quot;failing schools&quot; (published in local paper)<br />Parents given option to transfer<br />Must provide special tutoring for students<br />Must restructure (replace staff, new curricula, consultants, extend school, change management)<br />
    14. 14. No Child Left Behind<br />Replacing students as teachers’ favorite thing to complain about since 2001<br />
    15. 15. Standards<br />stand⋅ard<br />something considered by an authority or by general consent as a basis of comparison; an approved model<br />a rule or principle that is used as a basis for judgment<br />an average or normal requirement, quality, quantity, level, grade, etc<br />
    16. 16. How I summarize NCLB…<br />“Whatever each state decides students will learn, each school must prove that students are learning it.”<br />
    17. 17. Indiana’s Academic Standards<br />An example: 3rd grade science<br />3.2.6 Make sketches and write descriptions to aid in explaining procedures or ideas<br />3rd grade<br />2nd “set” – “Scientific Thinking”<br />6th standard in category<br />
    18. 18. Indiana’s Academic Standards<br />Resources for 3.2.6:<br /> Make sketches and write descriptions to aid in explaining procedures or ideas<br />I’ll Tell You What To Do<br />
    19. 19. Lecture Worksheet #6<br />On the other side of your worksheet, answer the following question:<br />Based on the standard you selected, describe an activity that would help your students meet this standard.<br />
    20. 20. Technology in Standards-Based Education<br />When shifts collide!<br />
    21. 21. Lecture Worksheet #7<br />Based on the standard you found, how might technology help you meet this standard?<br />
    22. 22. Example<br />Math Standard 1.1.9: For a set of 8 or fewer objects, describe a subset as “__ out of __ parts” and write the fraction.<br />Math Standard 1.1.10: Represent, compare, and interpret data using pictures and picture graphs.<br />Activity: Robot (includes BLM Shape Robots)<br />Technology Resource: eManipulative Fractions<br />Resource: Assessment<br />Kidspiration: <br />
    23. 23. Can Technology Help You Teach Standards?<br />Tell us a digital story – what will education look like?<br />
    24. 24. Wrap Up<br />SHIFT for your students<br />Digital natives<br />SHIFTing education policy<br />Standards and NCLB<br />SHIFTS collide<br />Use technology to increase teacher effectiveness<br />ASSIGNMENT: How do you see education shifting? Tell us your digital story…<br />
    25. 25. What’s next<br />In lab this week…<br />What’s your view on digital natives (BRING PARAGRAPH)<br />Addressing the standards…<br />In lecture next Monday (Sept 14)…<br />Teacher standards<br />Teacher professional development requirements<br />
    26. 26. President to Address Students<br />President Obama will deliver a national address to students on September 8 at noon ET. He will challenge students to work hard, set education goals, and take responsibility for their learning. <br />
