Making Educational Connections

This presentation/Proposal represents many of the technology tools that I have learned in my LIBS 602 class. I really wanted to show that there needs to be a connection and/or collaboration between librarians and teachers. This collaboration will increase the success of our students and allow the lessons to be more meaningful to both the teachers and the students. The presentation discusses ways that the new tools can be used within the classroom allowing for the adherence to the Virginia SOL guidelines.

    -Welcome to this session on “Making Educational Connections.”
    -My name is Tanisha Ricks and I am currently in the Library Media Specialist Program at ODU.
    -I am also a special education teacher and have found the technology that the librarian has to offer can help to tremendously enhance my lessons.
    -We will discuss making these connections with technology within the library that extends to the classroom.
    -This title symbolizes the connections that are being made in today’s schools. Everyone from the speech therapist, to the resource teachers (music, PE, and art) should be finding ways to connect with the classroom teacher. The school librarians have been making that connection in their own library lessons.
    -Today we will talk about the connections and some new and exciting uses of technology that will help to make the connection exciting and successful.
  • Time: 2.11
    -The connection between librarian, student and teacher is like fitting puzzle pieces together.
    -Teachers and librarians must work together on a consistent basis to improve learning for the students.
    -Librarians should really be utilized more often because they have a wealth of information about new technology and implanting the technology into the lessons.
    -Students can benefit greatly from this collaboration.
  • Time: 2:54
    -This is a picture of a librarian from the 1930’s.
    -Primarily worked in isolation.
    -Long gone are the days librarians work as their own entity.
    -The ever evolving librarian works with teachers to build a successful learning environment
  • Time: 4:07
    -This is the face of the new and improved librarian.
    -Technology is the forefront of learning.
    -As you can see a scanner, iPad and an electronic reading device and one actually has a book.
    -Not only is the face of the librarian changing but so is the library (e.g. ebooks, online library access, and
    self-service abilities)
  • Time: 5:00
    -I have learned so many new ways to present information using technology.
    -I used to avoid technology that seemed too complicated and settle for a basic lesson.
    -Now that I have some new tools in my tool belt I am as excited as the girls in this picture about what I am learning.
  • Time: 5:32
    -I am going to share with you some of the tools that I enjoyed using and that have generated some fun ideas.
  • Time: 6:12
    -This picture seems to represent the evolution of the library.
    -We have covered a little bit about how the role of the librarian has evolved through the years.
    -The implementation of technology is crucial in connecting with today’s students.
  • Time: 6:58
    -This is Piktochart.
    -This is one of many sites that lets you create your own Infographic.
  • Time: 7:25
    -You will be amazed about how helpful the infograph can be.
    -If you have a Pinterest account you have probably seen an inforgraph and didn’t know it.
  • Time: 9:00
    -This is a short video to explain what is an infographic?
  • Time: 10:44
    -This is an example of a really simple infograph.
    -Looking at this will assist in giving you an idea about what an infograph does and how it presents information.
    -You can see the two major elelments discussed by Yair Riemer in the video. You see the colorful visual elements and the content elements.
    -This infograph presents information about someone’s Happy Birthday history. The author used a Venn Diagram to present the information.
    -I choose this infograph to present first because, being from the field of education, we can never use a Venn diagram too much.
    -Review the infograph with the audience.
  • Time: 15:37
    -I love this infograph because it embodies all the elements of a good infograph.
    -This presents a comparison of two different years.
    Let’s look at this Infograph (review the Infograph’s information pointing out the design principles). You will choose from selected free templates to input your information.
    This Infograph is a comparison of two time periods. It includes vivid visuals (the colorful pictures), and factual (researched) information.
    Look it does well presenting the four principles of design that are pertinent in creating a good presentation of information.
    Contrast: Look how the left and right sides are similar and contain like information but the left side (1982) has lighter coloring and the right side (2012) contains a little darker coloring. The sides both have teenage boys with great similarities but noticeable differences too.
    Repetition: The color scheme and information layout is consistent throughout.
    Alignment: Look how all the information is strategically connected in some way. Nothing is just placed randomly.
    Proximity: Look how similar information is grouped together to show there is a relationship (e.g. look at the movie section on both sides, they are different but carry the same relationship in that they specifically show movie information). Notice the pictures are relevant to the information that is being presented.
  • Time: 18:41
    -This is the first infograph that I created.
    -I created this with 3rd graders in mind.
    -SOL 3.5e requires that third grade students should be able to demonstrate comprehension of fictional text and poetry and identify the author’s purpose for writing a particular text.
    -SOL 3.6 requires students can identify author’s purpose when reading nonfiction texts.
    -Author’s purpose seems a bit difficult for students to grasp.
    -This can be an example of a pre-created template that students can plug in some picture representations of books or stories that represent each purpose.
    -This infographic can also be used to have students read a selection and plug in the author’s purpose, clues from the text that let them know what the purpose may be and find other selections that share that same purpose. List the clues that let them know that that book fits in that particular infograph.
    -Infographs are so flexible and can be used with many different subjects and SOL strands.
  • Time: 20:11
    -When students have to do their annual research projects the students can use an infograph to present their findings.
  • Time: 21:35
    -Students don’t seem to understand the relationship between multiplication and division when solving a problem.
    -Being able to present the steps along with visual picture representations of how they are solved may help the students see the connections.
    -Showcasing the steps to solving word problems would be great to present in an infograph as well.
  • Time: 22:00
    -The second tool I will introduce will be QR codes.
  • Time: 23:07
    -These are some examples of the Quick Response (QR) codes. You load the App to your camera phone and you can scan the codes you see all around you.
    -as in one of the pictures above, I nigma is a good and free barcode app.
  • Time: 25:20
    -This is the I-nigma barcode creation page. Once all information has been filled in your barcode will appear in the square box.
    -you have the ability to save, share or embed your created code.
    -QR code is a new and innovative way to access the mobile internet
    -users can use the camera on their mobile phone to scan barcodes that may appear in magazines, newspapers, billboards, LCD/plasma screens, packaging, business card and even t-shirts.
    -A user having a mobile camera phone equipped with the correct reader software can scan the image of the 2D barcode causing the phone browser to launch and direct to the programmed URL.
    -These codes have also been used in education.
    -Most of the codes you scan in the stores or in magazines will just provide written information.
    -You can add voice to your QR code.
    -QR Voice can be used by teachers to record their audio messages and print them out in the form of QR codes and then hand them out together with due assignments to students.
    -They can also be used to check the correct answers  students would have recourse to these QR codes, they can scan them and listen to the answers.
  • Time: 26:54
    -This is the code that I created with a message for you.
    -Use cell phone to scan code and play message for the audience.
  • Time: 28:24
    -SOL 3.3 a-b: the student will need describe accomplishments by Christopher Columbus, Juan Ponce de Leon, Jacques Cartier and Christopher Newport
    -They also need to know reasons for exploration, what they learned, result of the travels, and impact of travels on American Indians.
  • Time: 29:49
    -The teacher will have laminated paragraphs with the QR codes beside each paragarah.
    -The student will have to underline the main idea.
    -The student will check the answer by scanning the code with an Ipad or teacher provided cell phone.
  • Time: 32:08
    -The student can start with $5.00 or each student can start with a different amount of money.
    -They must shop and scan the prices of the items they will buy.
    -They must present the total of the items purchased.
    -The must be able to provide the change, if any, they will receive in return.
  • Time: 32:48
    -The third tool I will introduce Augmented Reality.
  • Time: 34:03
    -Augmented Reality is a great tool to bring life to inanimate objects.
    -Images, places, and objects can come to life.
    -Be sure that you get the Aurasma app on your phone or Ipad.
    -You can bring 3D animation to almost anything.
  • Time: 36:00
    -Take a look at how this school, Shaw Wood Primary uses Aurasma to create augmented reality.
  • Time: 37:35
    -The teacher’s target point can be the place value chart hanging in the room or a rounding anchor chart hanging in the room.
    -When the child focuses the Ipad on those charts they can see the kinesthetic movements they did as a class when she introduced the concepts.
  • Time: 39:06
    -The teacher can use all the verbs and link them to a video clip that shows someone acting out and verbalizing a sentence for the past and present tense of the word.
  • Time: 40:48
    -The student can use a corresponding worksheet to record his or her answers to the questions he/she is asked.
    -The student can also be asked to generate a question from that same paragraph.
  • Time: 41:36
    -The fourth tool I will introduce will be Digital Storytelling.
  • Time: 42:20
    -Digital storytelling involves combining narrative with digital content to create a short movie.
    -Digital stories can include interactive movies with audio and visual effects or presentation slides with narration or music.
  • Time: 45:03
    -why Blog? Is the first digital story that I created with another classmate.
    -It seemed like a daunting task but Videolicious was pretty user friendly.
    -We did not add sound but sound can be added.
    -I am sure your students would love creating a video in the name of education.
  • Time: 45:59
    -The teacher can model the use of the digital storytelling by creating her own story first and discussing the elements within her story.
    -An example of similar stories can be that the students are first taught using Lon Po Po and Little Red Riding Hood to learn how to compare and contrast elements.
    -Students can use Venn Diagrams to record comparisons.
  • Time: 47:30
    -The students can be put in to groups in order to re-inact the journey of the explorers.
    -Students should be sure to capture the elements of the SOL by identifying the most specific information.
    -Students can use the stories to study the explorers daily.
  • Time: 48:49
    -It is sometimes difficult for students to generate ideas for story writing.
    -Using a tool for digital storytelling may prompt students to use the pictures and come up with a good writing piece.
  • Time: 49:19
  • Time: 49:44 -Done: 50: 26
    -The tools that I have discussed may seem a little daunting and you may think that you will never be able to use them.
    -Once you try these tools on just one lesson at a time their use will become easier.

    1. 1. 1930’s Librarian
    2. 2. I am currently a library science student and this is how I feel about the technology that I am being introduced to during this journey.
    3. 3. Surprise! Surprise! Surprise! Surprise!
    4. 4. Now, lets discuss some helpful tools that will get you started on your quest to improve learning through technology.
    5. 5. Hmm…what is an infograph????
    6. 6.
    7. 7. 3.5 The student will read and demonstrate comprehension of fictional text and poetry. e) Identify the author’s purpose 3.6 The student will continue to read and demonstrate comprehension of nonfiction texts. a) Identify the author’s purpose.
    8. 8. 3.11 The student will write a short report. c) Collect and organize information about the topic into a short report. The teacher can assist students in creating an infograph to present information from the research project.
    9. 9. 3.6 The student will represent multiplication and division, using area, set, and number line models, and create and solve problems that involve multiplication of two whole numbers, one factor 99 or less and the second factor 5 or less. Teachers can have the students present the steps to solving multiplicand and division problems within an infograph.
    10. 10. Second Tool
    11. 11. Quick Response Codes
    12. 12. Here is a voice QR code that I created with a message for you. 3OmUcb
    13. 13. Here are some QR code ideas for third grade: 3.3 The student will study the exploration of the Americas. Use the QR codes during social studies. The student will have flash cards of the different explorer’s pictures. On the back of each picture will be 2-3 facts about that explorer that the child will have to know for the SOLs.
    14. 14. 3.5 The student will read and demonstrate comprehension of fictional text and poetry. I) Identify the main idea. 3.6 The student will continue to read and demonstrate comprehension of nonfiction texts. g) Identify the main idea. The teacher can have pre-selected and laminated paragraphs in which the child reads and underlines the main idea. He or she will scan the bar code to get the answer for each paragraph.
    15. 15. 3.8 The student will determine, by counting, the value of a collection of bills and coins whose total value is $5.00 or less, compare the value of the bills and coins, and make change. The teacher can have objects labeled for a classroom store with the QR codes as the price tags. Once the student scans for the price of the item, he/she must figure the change.
    16. 16. Third Tool
    17. 17.
    18. 18. yer_embedded&v=5qRcIek4NY0
    19. 19. Here are some Augmented Reality ideas for third grade: 3.1 The student will a) read and write six-digit numerals and identify the place value and value of each digit; b) round whole numbers, 9,999 or less, to the nearest ten, hundred, and thousand; Teacher will use Aurasmic to bring life to place value and rounding problems. The teacher can have a target problem to focus on and have the students re-inacting a kinesthetic movement for either place value and rounding.
    20. 20. 3.10 The student will edit writing for correct grammar, capitalization, punctuation, and spelling. d) Use past and present verb tense. The teacher can use the vocabulary words (verbs) as the target words. Once the student focuses on the word they are directed to a video clip that acts out the past and present tense of that word.
    21. 21. 3.5 The student will read and demonstrate comprehension of fictional text and poetry. f) Ask and answer questions about what is read. 3.6 The student will continue to read and demonstrate comprehension of nonfiction texts. d) Ask and answer questions about what is read. The teacher can find a target on each page with which she wants the student to work. Once the child is able to focus, there is another student asking a question like, “In which paragraph did the character find the magic coin?”
    22. 22. FourthTool
    23. 23. Digital Storytelli ng
    24. 24. <iframe width="560" height="315" src="//" frameborder="0" allowfullscreen></iframe> v=DWdUh9b35iU Why Blog?
    25. 25. 3.5 The student will read and demonstrate comprehension of fictional text and poetry. d) Compare and contrast settings, characters, and events. The teacher can assign teams, each team with an iPad and a similar story. Once the students have reviewed both stories, they need to compare and contrast the settings, characters, and events.
    26. 26. 3.3 The student will study the exploration of the Americas by a) describing the accomplishments of Christopher Columbus, Juan Ponce de León, Jacques Cartier, and Christopher Newport; b) b) identifying the reasons for exploring, the information gained, the results of the travels, and the impact of the travels on American Indians. The teachers can have the students use digital storytelling by having them act out the story of the explorers they are responsible for knowing.
    27. 27. Here are some digital storytelling ideas for third grade: 3.9 The student will write for a variety of purposes. The teacher will create a digital story from Storybird, Animoto or Domo Animoto with only pictures. The student will create the words for the story by using the pictures.
