Educational vision for_the_21st_century

  1. 1. A Distributed Learning Educational Perspective  for the 21st Century By Katia Dixon LIBE 477
  2. 3. &quot;Content Creator&quot; <ul><ul><li>Focus on being a &quot;content creator&quot; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>&quot;teachers must become content creators [...]. To teach those technologies effectively, educators must learn to use them effectively&quot; (Richardson 154). </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Goals: </li></ul><ul><li>To continue working with Web 2.0 tools already </li></ul><ul><li>tried and explore new tools in order to be  </li></ul><ul><li>able to teach them to students and staff </li></ul><ul><li>effectively and efficiently. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>To enjoy the experience of creating  </li></ul><ul><li>content through new forms of media </li></ul><ul><li>and/or tools. </li></ul>
  3. 4. Share Resources <ul><ul><li>Focus on keeping track of resources available to share with colleagues. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Share current research and articles about Web 2.0 Tools and Learning in the 21st Century articles. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Collaborate with colleagues using Web 2.0 Tools to enhance our knowledge and distributed learning courses.  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>&quot;It is not essential  to know what the answer is as it is to know where to find it&quot; (Richardson 151). </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Goals: </li></ul><ul><li>To keep up to date with Web2.0 tools and  </li></ul><ul><li>current education theories for the purpose  </li></ul><ul><li>of knowledge and collaboration. </li></ul><ul><li>Continue working on: Web 2.0 Tools </li></ul><ul><li>PW: kdixonsd68 </li></ul>
  4. 5. Interactive Education <ul><ul><li>Making sure students have the opportunity to engage with what they are learning, rather than just reading and responding. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>&quot;new literacies classrooms are places of student engagement in which students report achieving a 'flow' state&quot; (Kist 44). </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Goals: </li></ul><ul><li>To add more audio and visuals to the online  </li></ul><ul><li>courses I currently teach.   </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>To use tools that engage students, while </li></ul><ul><li>letting them interact with the class and </li></ul><ul><li>the content of the course. </li></ul>
  5. 6. Privacy and Safety <ul><ul><li>&quot;Risks can be greatly reduced by having the appropriate information in hand and by planning&quot; (Richardson 12).  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>&quot;Teachers have to be ready to discuss what should and should not be published online&quot; (Richardson 13). </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Goals: </li></ul><ul><li>To continue to familiarize myself with the varying privacy rules and safety issues that exist for students and staff. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>To teach students about their digital footprint. </li></ul><ul><li>To ensure students have the tools needed  </li></ul><ul><li>to deal with any privacy and safety issues </li></ul><ul><li>they may face. </li></ul>
  6. 7. Flexible Student Centered Learning <ul><ul><li>Give students freedom with their learning through choice and giving them a voice. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>&quot;these technologies are demanding that we reexamine the way we think about content and curriculum, and they are nurturing, new, important shifts in how best to teach students (Richardson 149). </li></ul></ul><ul><li>Goals: </li></ul><ul><li>To create and/or use a variety of digital  </li></ul><ul><li>content that also gives students a choice  </li></ul><ul><li>in displaying their learning and skills. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Adjust topic choices to meet the needs  </li></ul><ul><li>of student interests and goals. </li></ul>
  7. 8. Open Communication <ul><ul><li>&quot;All these spaces allow for some community to form, even if for only a few seconds&quot; (Kist 4).  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>  Opening up conversations in order to develop connections between between a community of learners. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>&quot;developing students who can flourish in the networked personal learning spaces that they will inhabit the rest of their lives&quot; (Richardson 149). </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Goals: </li></ul><ul><li>To assist students in building appropriate  </li></ul><ul><li>learning networks. </li></ul><ul><li>To communicate with students, parents, </li></ul><ul><li>and staff using multiple mediums in  </li></ul><ul><li>order to collaborate together and  </li></ul><ul><li>maintain an open dialogue. </li></ul>
  8. 9. Facilitator of Learning for Learning <ul><ul><li>&quot;Our students are learning that their voices matter, that people are listening and responding, and that their ideas count&quot; (Richardson 151). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Show don't tell  </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Lay the foundation for the path that will be built from each student's stepping stones. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Goals: </li></ul><ul><li>To facilitate individual and community learning  </li></ul><ul><li>through demonstration, rather than content  </li></ul><ul><li>driven education.  Thus, leading students  </li></ul><ul><li>to the ability to be successful finding their  </li></ul><ul><li>way in their student centered learning. </li></ul><ul><li>To give students their voice to be  </li></ul><ul><li>individual and be involved. </li></ul>
  9. 10. Problem Solving & Critical Thinking <ul><ul><li>&quot;the ease with which people can now publish to the Internet, consumers of Web content need to be editors as well as readers&quot; (Richardson 148). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>&quot;We need to give kids practice using these new media in school, where there can be a dialogue about all the issues that come up when communication in these new ways&quot; (Kist 7). </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Goals: </li></ul><ul><li>To teach students to solve their own  </li></ul><ul><li>problems through tools and methods  </li></ul><ul><li>available to them. </li></ul><ul><li>To teach and use critical thinking skills  </li></ul><ul><li>to evaluate and/or change content  </li></ul><ul><li>available on the Read/Write Web </li></ul>
  10. 11. Paperless Online Courses <ul><ul><li>  &quot;Students can display mastery in countless ways that involve the creation of digital content for large audiences&quot; (Richardson 153). </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>  Perhaps a currently idealistic idea, but the tools are available to make it a reality.  Example: turning grammar printable worksheets into an online form to complete. </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Goals: </li></ul><ul><li>To continue to create content for students that  </li></ul><ul><li>requires direct online submission. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>To develop online courses that allow  </li></ul><ul><li>students to understand an assignment  </li></ul><ul><li>without needing to print off  </li></ul><ul><li>information in order to be successful. </li></ul>
  11. 12. Active & Progressive Teaching <ul><ul><li>&quot;teachers must begin to see themselves more as learners alongside their students (Richardson 154). </li></ul></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>Goals:  </li></ul><ul><li>To not allow myself to become comfortable in routine, but make myself continue to adapt to change  </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>To keep up with trends and research in  </li></ul><ul><li>education and tools available. </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>To not become a sedentary teacher... </li></ul><ul><li>  </li></ul><ul><li>        ... ever. </li></ul>
  12. 13. Biggest Challenges <ul><ul><li>Computers in schools need upgraded to support the new and changing technology that teachers are working to incorporate into their courses. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Distributed Learning Educators face negative attitudes and lack of support from &quot;regular&quot; teachers who assume we &quot;are taking their jobs.&quot; </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Time: time to be a content creator, while balancing  course development and a high volume of students. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Trying to create a online classroom  </li></ul></ul><ul><li>     community when the courses are  </li></ul><ul><li>     self-paced and students are working at  </li></ul><ul><li>     different points in the course at the  </li></ul><ul><li>     same time. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Avoiding information overload. </li></ul></ul>
