  3. 3. <ul><li>Learning Targets: </li></ul><ul><li>Always begin with a focus on the targeted learning. </li></ul><ul><li>Students with a clear idea of where the learning is going are able to set goals and determine a path to success. </li></ul><ul><li>Today’s Learning Targets: </li></ul><ul><li>We will look at several ways in which students can create media to be used for future instruction. </li></ul><ul><li>We will look at the benefits of teaching this way. </li></ul><ul><li>Several resources will be shared. </li></ul>
  4. 4. <ul><li>Rationale: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Motivation: Rigorous challenges involving media and technology motivate students to achieve at a higher level. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Student Culture: Students “play” with these tools outside of class. This makes a great connection. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Synthesis: Students synthesize information from several sources including text, video, pictures and sound to put together a finished product. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Collaboration: Students are working together to solve real problems. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Reciprocal Teaching: Students learning from each other </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Assessment: Great opportunity to assess conceptual understanding. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Teacher as Learner: Teacher models learning by being a risk taker and trying new things. </li></ul></ul>
  5. 5. <ul><li>Dabbler, Sampler, Browser </li></ul><ul><ul><li>New ideas </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Go back and find as many ways as possible to share these tools with your students. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Students then have the power and practice in choosing the best tool for the teaching. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Cure for paralysis caused by high stakes tests. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Be creative! Do what you love. </li></ul></ul>
  6. 6. <ul><li>Some things I am dabbling in this year: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Podcasts, Vodcast </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Whiteboard Movies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Media Kits </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PowerPoint </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Video </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>PhotoStory </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Exam View tests </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Blogs </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>UnitedStreaming </li></ul></ul>

  9. 9. <ul><li>Only One Computer? </li></ul><ul><li>Jigsaw presentations: each person is responsible for one piece of a presentation. The pieces are then combined for a final class project. Kits really help in this situation because students don’t have to spend a lot of time on the computer finding the media. They can have their plan ready to go and then they just have to input it in the computer. </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Mountain School Vocabulary (PowerPoint) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Oregon Trail (MovieMaker) Kit </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Whiteboard Movie s Mary Moore </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Table Teaching </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Podcast created with different sections.

  15. 15. Last session… you’ve seen a lot. My challenge to you is to dabble, present lessons and provide the tools for your students to use in presentations so that students have a whole toolbox of tools they can use to share their ideas and understanding.
