  2. 2. A bit about me…<br /> Physics major<br />Taught math & physics<br />Glencliff HS – ’88-’98<br /> Lipscomb – ’98 to present<br /> Educational Technology<br />Favorite Topics - p & Web 2.0<br />From &apos;81 on...<br />“Doing What I Don’t Know How to Do”<br />~ Eduardo Chillida - Educause by R. Martin Reardon<br />
  3. 3. So what is Web 2.0?<br />Tim O’Reilly<br />To find something comparable, you have to go back 500 yrs to the printing press<br /> Printing destroyed the old world of kings and aristocracies.<br />“Technology is shifting power away from the<br />editors, the publishers, the establishment, <br />the media elite. Now it’s the people who <br />are taking control.” ~ Rupert Murdoch<br />Web 2.0 for Beginners- Mike Stopforth<br />
  4. 4. Kevin Kelly, 2005<br />The scope of the Web today is hard to fathom.<br />Internet now allows participation by virtually anyone with Internet access.<br />We Are the Web!<br />
  5. 5. So, what is the impact on Teaching & Learning?<br /> Web 2.0 has brought “a new wave of innovation for teaching and learning” (Alexander, Educause, 2006)<br /> Students are clamoring for these technologies<br /> Web 2.0 tools allow for constructivism<br /> Yet many teachers “don’t want to use new technologies at all” (Presky, 2007, p.41)<br />

  11. 11. Learning Theory<br />Connectivism: A Learning Theory for the Digital Age – George Siemens<br /> Technology is altering (rewiring) our brains. The tools we use define and shape our thinking.<br />Our ability to learn what we need for tomorrow is more important than what we know today. <br /> Know-how and know-what is being supplemented with know-where (the understanding of where to find knowledge needed).<br /> taken from of The Outsourcing Knowledge<br />
  12. 12. Can anyone else think of an employment sector other than K-12 and postsecondary education where employees have the right to refuse to use technology?<br /> A grocery store checker doesn&apos;t get to say &apos;No thanks, I don&apos;t think I&apos;ll use a register.&apos; <br /> A stockbroker doesn&apos;t get to say, &apos;No thanks, I don&apos;t think I&apos;ll use a computer.&apos; <br /> An architect doesn&apos;t get to say, &apos;No thanks, I don&apos;t think I&apos;ll use AutoCAD.’<br /> But in education, we plead and implore and incentivize but we never seem to require.<br />~ Scott McLeod, Iowa State Univ.<br />
