  • Welcome to Education 2.0: Innovation, Collaboration, via Effortless Integration. My name is Ryan Evans and we will spend the next hour and a half exploring a variety of Web 2.0 tools that you can use in your classrooms. We’ll also discuss the concerns or parents and educators and the steps to begin using these tools in your classrooms or schools.
  • Remember when children had to help on the farm during the Agricultural Age.
  • School schedules were aligned with agricultural activity. A 9 month school year allowed children to help on the farms during the summer and a 7 hour school day allowed children to complete chores after school.
  • Business was driven by work on the assembly line.
  • During the Industrial Age, Desks and chairs were in rows, classes were set up in increments of 50 minutes, and grades levels were established to model industry.
  • Remember when teachers lectured.
  • And you were bored out of you mind? Anyone. Anyone…
  • Remember when classes were textbook driven and many were out dated?
  • Remember when. They talked…You listened?
  • Remember when you first heard…You’ve got mail
  • Remember when the world was round? Tom Friedman, in his best-seller denoted how technology has changed the world. Society has been globalize as business, government, even religious organizations have taken advantage of the World Wide Web. He has decreed that The World is Flat.
  • Then all of that changed.
  • Do you bank online?
  • Do you shop online?
  • Do you pay bills online?
  • Do you learn online? Do you know anyone or have you received a or are currently working toward a degree online?
  • Do you collaborate?
  • Do you blog?
  • Do you network?
  • Do you text?
  • Do you tweet?
  • Do you download music, videos, and or pictures?
  • Mark Prensky refers to 21 st century students as Digital Natives in his 2001 article titled Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants. John Palfrey stated in his book, Born Digital. Quote: “they were born after 1980, when social digital technologies such as Usenet and bulletin board systems, came online… They have access to networked digital technologies and have the skills to use those technologies.” End quote. Prensky also notes that students have changed radically and “are no longer the people our educational system was designed to teach. We can argue that students of every generation are different, but the differences in Digital Age students is heavily influenced by digital technologies. Many of us, on the other hand, who were born prior to 1980 are referred to as Digital Settlers or Digital Immigrants in that we have to assimilate into this digital world similar to a person moving from their native country to a foreign land. Steve Hargadon, from Classroom2.0, stated in an Encyclopedia Britannica blog that reports released by BECTA, Becta, a government agency In the UK leading the national drive to ensure the effective and innovative use of technology throughout learning, surveyed students 11 – 16 and indicated that 74% reported that they had at least one social networking site account, 78% having uploaded pictures, videos, or music to the web and 50% having done so in the last week.
  • Rod Paige the former U.S. secretary of Education stated, that “Education is the only business still debating the usefulness of technology. Schools remain unchanged for the most part, despite numerous reforms and increased investments in computers and networks.”
  • New Jersey has revised is Core Curriculum Content Standards in Technology as well as other subject areas. School districts should be in compliance with the new technology standards by September 1, 2012. I’ve inserted only small clips of wording each of the grade ranges. The K – 2 standards state in part that: Students are formally introduced to the basic features and functions of the computers and demonstrate understanding that technology enables them to communicate beyond the classroom on a variety of topics.
  • The 3 - 4 standards state in part that: Students continue to develop information-literacy skills and increasingly use technology to communicate with others in support of learning
  • 5 – 8: Students participate in online learning communities, collaborating in the design of products that address local and global issues across the curriculum.
  • 9 – 12 Students collaborate adeptly in virtual environments and incorporate global perspectives into problem solving at home, at school, and in structural learning experiences, with the growing realization that people in the 21 st century are interconnected economically, socially, and environmentally and have a shared future. That being said: The categories are:
  • Digital Citizenship
  • Ready or Not
  • It’s Not Tricki
  • In the Fog???
  • It Killed More Radio Stars
  • Lights, Camera, Action
  • Just Goo It
  • Blabber Mouth
  • Quote Your Sources
  • What’s My Inspiration
  • Smile, You’re on Camera
  • Web 2.More
  • HELP!
  • Let’s Play
  • The 21 st Century has been dubbed the Digital / Information Age. With that label on this period of time Marc Prensky has labeled certain people of this age Digital Natives and others Digital Immigrants. He notes that digital natives are K – college students and are the first generation to grow up with this new technology. They have always been exposed to computers, video games. cell phones, digital music players, and other digital tools. These of us from previous generations have had to assimilate this new technology into our lives and change the old way we do things Digital Natives speak the digital language. Digital Immigrants speak with an accent. My question to you is how strong is yours? While some of use may be digital immigrants, we may have adapted to the digital age a little better than others. Prensky states, “Digital Immigrants instructors, who speak an outdated language are struggling to teach a population that speaks an entirely new language.” Now while this is arguable, he makes a valid point that today's students are different and we as educators should respond to their needs.
  • How strong is your accent? Let’s conduct a quick test. Take out your cell phone. Pretend to dial a number. Did you use your index finger or your thumb. Index finger – Digital Immigrant Thumb Digital Native.
  • Let’s review other things that will influence your accent.
  • Web 1.0 is when the web was static. It was a provider of information. Similar to some our classrooms. It was oneway. We’d go to a website find information, play a game, etc.. It was also very technical. In order to create a publish a web page required a learning curve that many would rather leave to experts.
  • Web 2.0 encourages interaction. Technical ability is not an issues as many of the tools have features that allow novice computers users to get started right away with minimal effort and minimal time. Web users are encouraged to interact, collaborate, and share information. We’ll get a little more into this aspect especially when we look at blogs and wikis. But if you simply think of sites like YouTube where you can find a video of almost anything or facebook where you can interact with friends you haven't seen or heard from in the past twenty years it’s simple remarkable what has happened with the emergence of Web 2.0

    46. 46. The Native Language / The Immigrant Accent Digital Natives Digital Immigrants <ul><li>You can probably think of more immigrant accents </li></ul>When placing a phone call I refer to it as making a phone call. I email the URL of a cool website. I send an email and do nothing else. I edit electronic documents on the screen. I read my email from the computer. When I install a new program, I allow the program to teach me. I check the Internet 1 st for information When placing a phone call I refer to it as dialing a number. I call my coworkers in to look at a cool website. I send an email and call to verify receipt of it. I print electronic documents to edit. I print my emails and then read them. When I install a new program, I read the manual. The Internet is not my 1 st choice for information

    50. 50. Web 2.0 Concerns Some sites allow counterfeit email address. Can counterfeit emails be used? Some sites allow you to add users without email for free. Some require pay accounts. My students don’t have email accounts. Email Certain host sites will provide the administrator with an email of changes when they occur. How soon will I know if changes have been made or comments added? Look for this feature when signing up. It is available with many host sites. Will I have the ability to trace or track edits? Many tools allow administrators to set user permissions and control what can be edited. How much control will I have as the teacher? Can I set limits (permissions) on who edits and what they edit? Integrity Look for advertisement free or limited ad resources. What types of outside content such as advertisements and other material will students are exposed too? <ul><li>Know COPPA Children's Online Privacy Protection Act </li></ul><ul><li>Develop usernames that provide no personal information. </li></ul>How much personal information of the students will be displayed on the World Wide Web? Look for tools that provide the option to create public, private, or protected projects. Who will be able to view the website? Security Web 2.0 Concerns
