  1. 1. MULTIMEDIA TECHNOLOGY: What Works at Perkins Middle School? Raul Gracia
  2. 2. Acknowledge that: <ul><li>We are experiencing change on a massive scale </li></ul><ul><li>there are new core skills needed by many, not few </li></ul><ul><li>Our educational practices should reflect our vision. </li></ul>
  3. 3. How should we perceive technology? <ul><li>a vehicle not a subject </li></ul><ul><li>a tool of personal empowerment </li></ul><ul><li>a tool for teaching in context </li></ul><ul><li>a tool for learning about subjects and </li></ul><ul><li>processes </li></ul><ul><li>Like learning a 2nd language to increase capacity & insight </li></ul>
  4. 4. Jobs of the Future <ul><li>“ By the Year 2005, 60% of the new jobs will require a level of technological fluency currently held by only 20% of our current workers. The top ten jobs that will exist in the year 2010 do not exist today. We are preparing our students for jobs that don’t exist, using technologies that haven’t yet been invented, to solve problems that we haven’t even considered yet.” </li></ul><ul><li>Richard Riley, U.S. Dept. of Education, KETC 03/07/99 </li></ul>
  5. 5. Mission Statement <ul><li>To bring together and maintain an accountable and consistently trained campus-wide technology committee that will understand, adapt, and effectively and innovatively utilize all appropriate, content-specific, instructional, technological tools for creation of digital classrooms. </li></ul><ul><li>The committee will train campus faculty to acknowledge the unique characteristics that our students bring into the classroom and help them acquire the necessary 21st century learning skills, such as becoming media literate, thinking critically, conducting purposeful research, and collaboratively working with others, which will allow them to successfully reach their educational as well as career goals. </li></ul>
  6. 6. Implementation of Mission Statement <ul><li>To effectively implement the mission statement the following was determined: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>21 st century skills needed by learners </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Innovative implementation of multimedia technologies </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Unique characteristics of today’s learners </li></ul></ul>
  7. 7. Examples of 21st Century Skills <ul><li>The Workplace- Farmers are checking soil moisture from their hand-held computers, and factory workers are guiding robots. </li></ul><ul><li>Health Care- More efficient systems are linking together county, state, and federal facilities, accelerating the study, diagnosis, and treatment of diseases through networked applications and medical databases. </li></ul><ul><li>Education- Teachers are serving as facilitators, exploring with their students the vast world of ideas and information. </li></ul>
  8. 8. “ Innovative Multimedia Technology Use” <ul><li>using technologies as complex learning & thinking tools </li></ul><ul><li>students at different sites using telecommunications to gather, process & report on a common project </li></ul><ul><li>students working together to solve real-world problems using real-world tools </li></ul><ul><li>students having opportunity to demonstrate learning beyond standardized tests through performance based assessments </li></ul>
  9. 9. Truth about Student Involvement <ul><li>&quot;You can never gauge a class by asking one or two students a question. You really need a quick cross-section of whether they're learning or not. And then you make efficient instructional decisions.“ </li></ul><ul><li>Quote from Darrell Ward, the founder of Denton, Texas-based eInstruction, which sells the Classroom Performance System. </li></ul>
  10. 10. Examples of Multimedia Technology That “Works at Perkins Middle School! ” <ul><li>Classroom Level Technology Use: </li></ul><ul><ul><li>Classroom Performance System (CPS) </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>Texas Instruments Navigator </li></ul></ul>
  11. 11. Classroom Performance System <ul><li>CPS is being used at Perkins Middle School in select core subjects. There are avid users at all levels of learning. </li></ul><ul><li>CPS resonates with our learners because interactivity is second nature to them. </li></ul>
  12. 12. <ul><li>Involve everyone CPS facilitates feedback from every student. Allow each student to participate simultaneously! </li></ul><ul><li>Embarrass no one CPS allows you to elicit a response from every student without embarrassing anyone for a wrong answer. </li></ul><ul><li>Reach a new generation Bridge the generation gap with technology that is dynamic and relevant to today’s young people. </li></ul><ul><li>Capture attention CPS promotes an environment of steady provocation and interactive learning. Captivate students for the entire class period with eInstruction’s interactive pad technology. </li></ul>
  13. 13. <ul><li>Obtain feedback instantly for quick remediation Whether you are using CPS for class interaction, class quizzes, or formal exams, CPS will generate percentage and graphed totals of each question’s answer totals. </li></ul><ul><li>Track student comprehension With CPS’s performance data tracking tools, you will always know if your students are understanding the course material. Be in tune with your students’ progress at all times. </li></ul><ul><li>Administer self-paced testing CPS allows students to take paper-based tests at their own pace. Administer tests without the pressure on students to keep up with the class’ pace. Great for Special Populations </li></ul><ul><li>Generate volumes of data CPS enables teachers to produce volumes of classroom performance data to have at their fingertips. </li></ul>
  14. 14. <ul><li>Measure progress CPS provides several different reporting tools to quantify and analyze student data in a timely and comprehensive manner. </li></ul><ul><li>Distribute information CPS increases the flow and speed of information. Deliver information to teachers, parents, principals, district administrators and students immediately! </li></ul><ul><li>Communicate weaknesses CPS helps students understand which areas they need to work on before the final assessment. Assist students individually by providing relevant updates designed to reinforce unsteady areas of understanding. </li></ul><ul><li>Accommodate all classes For a teacher that handles several classes in a week, or even several grades, CPS is a tool that collects and organizes data instantly. Teachers can keep their fingers on the pulse of each class’ progress without intermixing results. </li></ul>
  15. 15. How you can use CPS in YOUR classroom : <ul><li>Collaboratively acquire information from groups of students on specific topics </li></ul><ul><li>Allows students to answer at their own pace helping all types of special populations remain engaged. </li></ul><ul><li>Provide a non-threatening environment allowing all students to participate - even the shy ones. </li></ul>
  16. 16. TI Navigator <ul><li>Designed to work with TI graphing calculators, the TI-Navigator system provides wireless communication between students' TI graphing calculators and the teacher's PC </li></ul>
  17. 17. Implementation of TI-Navigators: Region One GEAR UP grant <ul><li>TI Navigator units and TI-84 calculators purchased for Perkins Middle School with Gear Up grant </li></ul><ul><li>Average of two 8 th grade math teachers per campus received ongoing professional development, a TI Navigator unit, a classroom set (30) of calculators, a SmartBoard, and a projector </li></ul><ul><li>Teachers were trained to create multimedia presentations to train students to learn how to use Navigator System. </li></ul>
  18. 18. Benefits <ul><li>For teachers, attaining a whole new level of interactive learning means more engaged students. </li></ul><ul><li>For students, a more engaging, high-tech, way to collaborate while learning Algebra </li></ul><ul><li>For administrators, the TI-Navigator system enables real-time formative assessment, supporting research-based instructional strategies, leading to improvements in student achievement. </li></ul>
  19. 19. How does it work? <ul><li>Flexibility to fit your needs! The TI-Navigator system is flexible and can be easily configured to accommodate any situation. Teachers can decide how to set up their connected classrooms no matter what the size, at a cost far lower than other networking solutions. </li></ul><ul><li>Components include: </li></ul><ul><li>Classroom kit - Contains the Access Point, which allows a wireless connection between students' graphing calculators and the teacher's PC. </li></ul><ul><li>Software - The TI-Navigator 2.0 software is the real power behind the system, allowing educators to engage with students and track their progress in real time. </li></ul><ul><li>Student kit - Includes four hubs serving up to 16 students and a charging bay. (Up to four students can connect to one hub.) For a classroom of 32 students, two classroom kits are required. </li></ul><ul><li>Individual hub - Provides the hub for up to four additional students. *TI-Navigator is compatible with TI-83 Plus & TI-84 Plus families. </li></ul>
  20. 20. Features to Enhance Mathematics Learning <ul><li>Activity Center Students contribute real-time to a shared workspace that can be projected to the class, generating discussion and collaborative learning. </li></ul><ul><li>Electronic Testing Send a test instantly, different one to each student if you like, and watch as the answers come in and are marked by the computer. </li></ul><ul><li>Screen Capture Immediately shows student results on assignments, quizzes and tests so you know right away who's &quot;got it&quot; and who needs additional help. </li></ul><ul><li>Quick Polling Collects impromptu feedback from the entire class to check understanding or generate discussion. No prep-work needed! </li></ul><ul><li>Class Analysis Allows the teacher to view the screen of an individual student, group, or those of the entire class to see if they are on task. </li></ul>
