Slippery rocks & hard places

  1. 1. Slippery Rocks & Hard Places: Twelve Bridges and Learning Matters
  2. 2. Summary <ul><li>This presentation talked about bridging the gaps between current teaching styles and what we need to do to prepare students for ever changing technology and real world issues. </li></ul>
  3. 3. <ul><li>He discussed what he considers the 12 main “bridges” we must build. </li></ul><ul><li>Examples include: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Developing life long learners </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Encouraging creativity and innovation, not just compliance </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Sharing information and ideas, not just focusing on protecting them </li></ul></ul>
  4. 4. Questions/Thoughts <ul><li>What I need to do before I can implement this with my students is focus on trying it myself. It can sometimes be hard to let go of the “old way” (which is how I learned) and embrace a new strategy. In the beginning, it will take conscious effort to use more technology and a greater world view. </li></ul>
  5. 5. Professional Development <ul><li>This information didn’t give me specific tools to use, like some of the other presentations have. What it did provide was a great overview of WHY using these tools is so important. It helped me see the bigger picture and advantages of implementing technology in the classroom. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Ideas for lessons <ul><li>Idea #1 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>He talked about the need to think outside the box when it comes to assessments, showing the students there is not just “one way” to do things. I would like to have the kids write suggestions of ways they could be assessed. I might get some great ideas, and they will have to think about how best to demonstrate their knowledge. </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Ideas for lessons <ul><li>Idea #2 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>It’s important to be willing to share ideas, and learn from others. I would like to have the students use something like wallwisher or a blog to talk about science topics and have discussions on open-ended questions. </li></ul></ul>
  8. 8. Ideas for lessons <ul><li>Idea #3 </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Students need information and knowledge, but they also need to be able to use common sense and insight. This is a great reason to give math students “brain teasers” and other word problems that make them think beyond just arithmetic and formulas. </li></ul></ul>
