Mini-lesson on copyrightToday’s DS workshop includes a mini-lesson on copyright. Here is a Q&A animation about copyright terms. Play if you have time:http://www.cyberbee.com/cb_copyright.swf
ULA explains how to find images for the digital story project. we are going to ask the students to create their own images. However, we are giving the copyright information if they would like to use three of them from free online images.Remind thatstudents need to specify the sources of external images.
In the Digital Story project, only 3 searched images are allowed. W200 students should (re-)create their own images for the project.The jobaid (hiperlinked) provides general guidelines.Encourage students to visit TTL for help. Make sure students spends enough time on the project.
To download the program, click on the hyperlinked text.Comment this software also could be virtually used in school’s IUanyWARE in your own PC or laptop.
Hyperlink leads to the Audacity jobaid.
Bring ALL your images & narration mp3 file in your flash drive to the class next week (Week 4)
--Explain the students how they should keep their files before they start producing the actual movie.
NETS-T are the technology-related standards for teachers and is developed by ISTE.The 2008 version was used as one of the core criteria in the teacher education program accreditation process. W200 is designed to promote learners to acquire the skill-sets described in these standards.Ex. The application of the NETS-T in W200 is evident in ePortfolio > NETS-T page. (Learners need to show evidence of their progress towards meeting these standards)
To address the rapid changes in technology, instruction, and learning environments, ISTE recently led a collaborative, international effort to refresh the NETS. For more information: http://www.iste.org/standards.aspx

TECHNOLOGY STANDARDS FOR TEACHERSNATIONAL EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY STANDARDS FOR TEACHERS (NETS-T)
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT COMPONENTS• Standards for teachers o NETS-T: NETS-T is an acronym for National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers o Skills-specific standards for teachers
INTRODUCTION TO NETS-T ISTE CEO Don Knezek Discusses the NETS
STANDARDS FOR TEACHERS (NETS-T)VERSUS INDIANA ACADEMIC STANDARDS• I thought Indiana academic standards were for teachers?• Why should I care about standards for my technology use as a teacher?
I thought Indiana academic standards were forteachers? Indiana Academic Standards describe the knowledge and skills students should acquire at each grade-level in a subject-area. Teachers should be aware of these standards as they guide what should be taught/ learned in class.
I thought Indiana academic standards were forteachers? The NETS-T (National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers) describe the skill-sets of teachers. They specify what knowledge, skills and dispositions a well-performing teacher should have.
Why should I care about standards for mytechnology use as a teacher?• Academic vs. Professional standards o Academic “content” standards • Led by (state or federal) government or subject-specific professional organizations (NCTM, NSTA, NCTE, etc.) • Examples of content standards (for K-12 students) - State Common Core Standards (SCCS) – LA / Math - Indiana State Academic Standards • Teachers are expected to bring their students academically to such levels o Teacher professional standards (teacher professionalism) • Standards on teacher technology use (e.g., NETS-T) • Professional teachers should be able to perform as such in the field
National Educational Technology Standards forTeachers (NETS-T), WHAT ARE THEY?1. Facilitate and Inspire Student Learning and Creativity2. Design and Develop Digital-Age Learning Experiences and Assessments3. Model Digital Age Work and Learning4. Promote Digital Responsibility and Citizenship5. Engage in Professional Growth and Leadership
National Educational Technology Standards for Teachers (NETS-T), WHAT ARE THEY?Open the page NETS-T FOR TEACHERS 2008Think-Pair-Share (5 minutes):1. Get into groups of 3-4 (one group for each standard)2. Choose a group leader3. Read the standard you assigned in detail.4. Write down three important points. Hint: Think about the keywords mentioned in the standard and provide us a short example/demonstration. What can be done to meet the standard assigned to your group?5. Your group leader will share them with the class.
NETS-T & W200Let’s have a look at your e-portfolio NETS-T Standards page.
TEACHER PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT What to do in order to keep up with these standards as ateacher? – NETS-T Standard #5
WHERE DO YOU STAND?In Indiana, we have Professional Growth Plan (PGP) • In Indiana, teachers can earn PGP points “to control their own professional development and use these experiences towards licensing renewal.” • Professional development: teacher learning activities • Professional Development Plan (PDP): more general term • Professional development is done: o Formally: Attending conferences, taking college classes and getting advanced degrees, working and learning on committees o Informally: Reading on your own, experimenting with new ideas, getting new ideas from colleagues, etc.
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT -FORMAL OPTIONS MAX. PTS. PT. VALUE SAMPLE CRITERIA VERIFICATION College Credit 90 points 1 credit hour = Official transcript B” 15 points Accredited college Professional 45 points 1 hour in Certificate of Must align with Conference workshop = 1 attendance standards and point PGP Educational 5 points 5 points per Certificate of Must be related Travel travel attendance to plan Professional 50 points 1 hour = 1 point Documentation Must service Committees Form on formal committee Formal PD is required to renew your teaching license in Indiana (and Georgia) Indiana – must have 90 points in 5 years. No requirements of how much from where… Note: Some states give credit for PD differently
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT – INFORMAL• Although informal, it is also a platform that conducts formal training for teachersExamples: • PBS Teachers • ChildTeaching • IPBS Teacherline • Teacher-to-teacher E-learning workshops (IE-only) • Annenberg Learner program • Center for the Study of Teaching and Policy • Teacher-to-Teacher Initiative
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENTPROFILER PRO AND PDP• Open the profiler pro website and login with your own account.• Look at the NETS-T and look at the results of the ProfilerPro survey you took: o You will notice that the survey is actually organized by the standards. The results should diagnose your strengths and areas of improvement. Interpreting the results will guide you to set your professional development goals.
HANDS ON ACTIVITY – PROFILER PRO (15 MINUTES)ULA Demo:1. Go to your Profiler Pro results. Save a copy of your image onto your desktop.2. Rename the image as profilerpro-pre3. Open your E-Portfolio – Professional Development Page4. From the results of your Profiler Pro, think about your strengths & areas of Improvement and identify 3 goals!5. Insert your image, strengths & areas of improvement and goals to your e-portfolio - > Professional Development page!
PROFESSIONAL DEVELOPMENT GOAL SETTING• Example #1 o Poor: I want to learn how to do a podcast tomorrow o Good: I want to learn how to use Podbean to create a podcast by the end of the semester• Example #2 o Poor: I want to learn technology to teach my students stuff! o Good: I want to learn Inspiration to teach my elementary students how to count before the school year begins. o SMART Framework Specific, Measurable, Attainable, Relevant, & TimelyRemember: You will provide evidence of achieving these goals at theend of the semester!
WEBSITES• A website or web site is the same thing as a web page. o True or False o Terms are often used interchangeably Website is actually a collection of webpages• In W200, one of the big projects is creating a teacher website.• As a teacher, why do you need a website? Let‟s see why…
