  9. 9. Shift #1: “Digital Natives” From this … … to this?
  10. 10. When Shifts Collide <ul><li>Standards and accountability </li></ul><ul><li>We talked about students (so-called “digital natives”) </li></ul><ul><li>Now, let’s talk about administrators, authorities, etc. </li></ul><ul><li>You are in the middle. </li></ul>
  11. 11. No Child Left Behind (NCLB)
  12. 12. Key elements of NCLB <ul><li>States must develop their own accountability systems (largely standardized tests). </li></ul><ul><li>Schools must make “adequate yearly progress” in standardized test scores. (Those that don’t are put on a published list of “failing schools,” and parents can transfer their students to another school.) </li></ul><ul><li>All teachers must be “highly qualified” (by 2005). </li></ul><ul><li>Schools must use “scientifically based” practices and methods. </li></ul><ul><li>Students must be “technology-literate” by eighth grade. </li></ul>
  13. 13. NCLB & Academic Standards <ul><li>Main reasons for academic standards … </li></ul><ul><ul><li>To make sure students are learning what they’re supposed to learn at a particular level </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>To clearly measure student outcomes </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ The standards-based education reform, setting high standards and establishing measurable goals will improve students’ outcomes” </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>“ Whatever each state decides students will learn, each school must prove that students are learning it.” </li></ul></ul>
  14. 14. Thus… Technology in Standards-Based Education <ul><li>Administrators, parents and students have expectations about technology use in the classroom. </li></ul><ul><li>Your students need to meet state standards. </li></ul><ul><li>It is important for you to know how to integrate technology into your classroom based on the standards. </li></ul><ul><li>And that’s what w200 is all about! </li></ul>
  15. 15. Solutions… <ul><li>But what about individualized learning and customized learning? How can you meet the standards and your students’ needs? </li></ul><ul><li>Webquests are one solution. </li></ul>
  16. 16. Inquiry Oriented Lessons: Webquest
  17. 17. What is a Webquest? <ul><li>A video created by one of former W200 students on Webquest: </li></ul>
  18. 18. What is a Webquest? <ul><li>In short… Webquest is “an inquiry-oriented lesson for individual learning in which most or all the information that learners work with comes from the web . ” </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Teachers will give a task to students to work on either individually or as a group. </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Teachers will provide information and appropriate resources needed to accomplish that task. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  19. 19. What a WebQuest is composed of…
  20. 20. Why Webquests? <ul><li>Webquests allow: </li></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>students to learn at their own pace and on their own (but all students learn the same content), </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>teachers to be free from the role of presenter, </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>teachers to give individual assistance to those in need. </li></ul></ul></ul>
  21. 21. How do you make a WebQuest? <ul><li>Technology tools </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Templates </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Quest Garden </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li> </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Website building tools </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Google Sites </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Weebly </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Yola </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Others </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><ul><li>Google Docs </li></ul></ul></ul><ul><li>Pedagogical Knowledge </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Devising a task through which students will meet the learning goals. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Providing appropriate guidelines and resources </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Providing self-assessment tools </li></ul></ul>Knowledge of the topic

  23. 23. In-Class Workout #2: Digital Natives Webquest
  24. 24. In-Class Workout #2: Digital Natives Webquest <ul><li>Go to the Webquest on “Digital Natives” and follow each step to create an Xtranormal video. </li></ul><ul><li>Using Xtranormal , you can create a video by just typing text. </li></ul><ul><li>Think back to video you watched for the class-prep activity. </li></ul><ul><li>Note: Xtranormal job-aids are on the w200 website </li></ul>
  25. 25. REMEMBER! <ul><li>Save your entire script in a Word document </li></ul><ul><li>Give yourself enough time to encode the video, as video processing takes time with online tools. </li></ul><ul><li>Do not change any of the settings when the program loads. It will only let you save if you use the defaults . </li></ul><ul><li>Xtranormal is not a free service. However, every new account comes with 300XP free . The “points widget” near the top shows how many xtranormal points (XP) you have available and how many you’ll need for your movie. Make sure you do not exceed 300XP to create and publish your movie.  </li></ul>
