  1. 1. Integrating multiple, collaborative, and communication technologies—how can online, teacher education benefit from 21st century skills and pedagogies?<br />Eileen O’Connor, Ph.D.; instructor<br />Denise Snyder, ALM - instructional designer<br />Empire State College / May 2011 <br />
  2. 2. Problems to be solved: cultural shift / online format  how can collaboration help? <br />Instructional designer & faculty member worked together; gathering a perspective and an approach to collaboration <br />Technologies used in the course<br />Insights from observations and ear-to-the-ground  modifications and refocusing<br />Results, lessons learned, and next steps <br />Agenda <br />
  3. 3. How can you encourage inquiry-based science?<br />. . . when K12 culture works against it?<br />
  4. 4. And, how can integrating multiple communication tools & technologies help in this charge?<br />. . . what aid can come from 21st century skills & approaches?<br />
  5. 5. What’s the solution?<br />What’s the problem?<br />Theory<br />Instructional<br />Design<br />Practice<br />
  6. 6. Collaboration<br />
  7. 7. Collaboration Issues<br />
  8. 8. Recommendations<br />Johnson & Johnson: "An Overview of Cooperative Learning"<br />
  9. 9.
  10. 10. ID Revision Cycle<br />Evaluate<br />Design<br />Implement<br />
  11. 11. The instruction<br />Angel CMS<br />Information Communications Tools used<br />
  12. 12. Second Life <br />
  13. 13. VoiceThread<br />
  14. 14. Mindmeister<br />
  15. 15. YouTube<br />
  16. 16. Teams comprised of three or more <br />Avoided putting individuals together from the same geographic region  shifted one to regional<br />Tried to group by content area (chemistry / physics had small #’s so they worked together)<br />Team results – first assignment <br />
  17. 17. A student-expressed concern encapsulates the issue with epistomology<br />It's not perfect but hopefully it's what you're looking for. I don't mind doing independent work however, teams are good to have. We feed off each other and help develop ideas. I think some people do have trouble with the inquiry concept and applying it. They are so used to feeding students info and facts that it's hard to break away from that. We were curious if anyone else had trouble with it as well? I understand what you're looking for and understand the concept but it still is difficult to grasp in such a short period of time.<br />
  18. 18. Therefore, the instructor modeled what wasn’t seen in the 1st lesson<br />
  19. 19. YouTube – after modification<br />
  20. 20. VoiceThread – after modification<br />
  21. 21. Online and ICT tools provide excellent insight and chance-for-adjustment for the perennial problem of shifting the K12 teaching culture<br />YouTube assignments show key weak/strong areas  and served as an excellent area for modeling <br />Moving closer to the performances that must really be assessed – however, the paradigm of graduate-level writing persists<br />Outcomes<br />
  22. 22. Worked / improvements from the tech integration perspective<br />Worked<br />Areas to improve<br />Rich interactions <br />Useful tools to meet diverse application & diverse types of learners <br />More ways to assess what is happening <br />More ways to present and scaffold good teaching <br />Excellent modeling & skill building <br />Need to provide more than simply readings about best practices before launching collaborations<br />Rich examples can help (YouTubes, for instance) and lesson details<br />Need more time for collaboration after modeling w/ YouTubes<br />
  23. 23. More time was needed to assimilate inquiry<br />Must be clearer about what is best practice in ways that students remember (YouTubes)<br />Collaboration must be established after the cultural shift has been established, more firmly <br />The initial reports before the collaboration were evidently not sufficient <br />Lessons learned about collaboration to “change mindsets” <br />Must embed more effective pedagogical practices to enable the complex psychology involved in bringing about this change<br />
