655 views

Published on

After a year of teaching in a 1:1 laptop environment, Adam Seldis and Madeleine Cox, two MS/HS teachers from Yokohama International School, share their experiences with others who might be about to embark on the same journey. Having both recently come to the end of the COETAIL (Certificate of Educational and Information Literacy) course at YIS, Adam and Madeleine will be able to offer practical advice regarding pedagogy, classroom management and curriculum design. As teachers of IBDP Economics & History and IBDP and MYP English respectively, they will be able to provide plenty of examples of the good, the bad, and the ugly in their integration of technology in the teaching and learning in their classrooms. MS and HS teachers interested in further integrating technology in their classroom. Especially for teachers in schools that will shortly be going 1:1.

  • Audience can ask questions if want. Just stick hand up\n
  • In Aug 2010 we had laptop carts. Made the decision as a school that we weren’t using technology effectively.\n
  • 1. Had to decide what we wanted for our community. Came up with CLC\n2. Flew staff around to benchmark. Also brought in experts (Kim, Damian etc)\n3. Had to make a decision about who would finance - school vs parents\n4. Come as a community to agree on RUP. All stakeholders involved.\n
  • 1. Tech pilots - train staff - try to get one in each department.\n2. Tech team - students teach each other and staff\n3. Coetail - extra PD for those who want to take it further\n4. Regular speed-geeking - staff led PD. Now technology is totally integrated.\n

  • Google docs now fundamental of teaching. Students take notes together, plan projects together, staff share information together. No need for servers. Also means staff and students can be selective about the people with whom they share.\n
  • Downside is the inbox full of sharing emails.\nSchool now run on googledocs - all staff forms, admin and lesson plans. Most collaborative communication now down with gdocs.\n

  • Great tool for play-learning. e.g. Tweet the civil war.\n
  • Also a great tool for virtual lesson. The above was when we had a typhoon day. Good way to communicate with kids. However find teenagers don’t like twitter nearly as a much as adults.\n

  • Blogs are a great way to communicate with students\nAt YIS all teachers are expected to have blogs. Some more informative.\n
  • Students should now expect college admission tutors to look at their blogs. At YIS we encourage colleges to do so, telling them in the school profile how to look at each blog.\n
