Topic/theme : What tools will you use /would you like to use in classroom in 2020? Key terms: Technologies, tools, laptop, mobile, device, interactive whiteboard Goals and objectives: Goals This lesson should provide to us a perspective about what tools will we use in classroom in the future. Also, this lesson will allow to explore all tools that we can use. The students and teachers will discover the most appealing device for teaching. Objectives ● Be able to find an appropriate tool to match any specific task ● Know how you use a specific tool ● Evaluate and compare different tools ● Describe advantages of this tools Competences/skills: ● Creative thinking ● Collaborative work ● Planning ● Real world awareness and intervention Standards Communication and Collaboration ●Students use digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively, including at a distance, to support individual learning and contribute to the learning of others. Research and Information Fluency ● Students apply digital tools to gather, evaluate, and use information. 1/5 22
  23. 23. eTwinning Learning Event Future School - School in 2020 Tiina SarisalmiThe Future School - School in 2020 TEAM M Technology Operations and Concepts ● Students demonstrate a sound understanding of technology concepts, systems, and operations. Creativity and critical thinking ● Students are able to distinguish between assumptions that are justifiable in context and those that are not. ● students are able to think of many, varied, or unusual ideas, or use their creative thinking abilities. Integration with ● Basic knowledge of computers (ICT) other subjects: ● Any subject of their curricula - planning a class with ICT tools ● Language studies (foreign / mother tongue) Tools: ● Web browser ●Computer with Internet connection and screen projector device for presenter ● Other high tech devices they are used to handle (maybe beyond teacher’s knowledge) ie. smart phones, games boxes, mp3/4, interactive whiteboard.. Learning ● video, materials (e.g. ● website, video clips, ● photos. podcasts, ● iPods/iPads/tablets/cell phones/x-Box and other games, ... websites, photos, text books etc.) Teaching ● Constructivist and collaboratives educational paradigms methods: ● Here are some advices for the teacher: 1. Make sure your presentation is dynamic and engages the students. 2. Keep moving so students have something to watch. 3. Try not to get stuck in a corner. 4. Make eye contact with as many students as possible. 5. Use positive rather than negative language 6. Limit the amount you read from the board, screen or script. 7. Add your own words and character. 8. Encourage the students to contribute every idea they possibly can! 9. When you want your students to be fluent, flexible, original, or to elaborate, work very hard to refrain from any evaluation or judgment of ideas. You will be able to analyze the ideas later. 2/5 23
  24. 24. eTwinning Learning Event Future School - School in 2020 Tiina SarisalmiThe Future School - School in 2020 TEAM M WORK PLAN Time We propose 2 paths (to be chosen according to the class characteristics) - a compromise between both is also possible): PATH # 1 Orientation Focus and Review 10 minutes and Take time to introduce yourself and share a little motivation about your background and your interest in the topic. Next, poll the audience to find out what they already know about this topic. Then, share a little about what you will be covering – just enough to peak their interest. Objectives Tell the audience: ● Today, we are going to be learning how to find a proper tool for a specific activity and how to use it Activities 20 minutes Teacher creates a class Google Site and adds students as collaborators. Also, teacher gives a reflexion theme: ( for exemple: Where/what for can we use the Google Earth tool?) In teams or individually, students create pages in the class Site with a solution. Homework / Arrange students into groups of 4-5 and hand 50 minutes independent them to research about one tool. Each group will work represent a different tool. This tool can be a real one or imaginary. Ask each group to invent a name that represents their tool and its utility. Activities As a class, discuss each tool and ask the class to 30 minutes determine whether: 1. Is it real? 2. Is it also applicable in classroom in 2020? 3. Offer a demonstration of its use in learning a subject of their own choice. Conclusion When you are analyzing, comparing, or evaluating 20 minutes and reflection ideas, be certain to keep a clear, sharp focus on what you’re trying to do or develop using those tools. PATH # 2 3/5 24
  25. 25. eTwinning Learning Event Future School - School in 2020 Tiina SarisalmiThe Future School - School in 2020 TEAM M Orientation ● Focus and Review 10 minutes and Before the class (previous homework), ask them to motivation bring to the classroom every tech device they have and usually handle inside/outside school The main idea is to make them feel important and experts on the subject - that will be the key word for their performance ● Objectives From their personal practical knowledge, ss will be led to develop, first, their more theoretical knowledge (researching) and then to develop their imagination and creativity. Doing this they also learn how to use those tools in their Personal Learning (at school level and a precious Long life Learning competence). Activities Face-to-face group work (brainstorming): 40 minutes ask them what do they know about the potentialities of the devices their group members brought to the classroom - for instance by starting collaboratively a wiki article (one page for each tool, made by a group of 2 or 3 ss) - they can draw a mind map and paste it in the wiki. Homework / Virtual group work (wiki writing): 2 hours independent ask them to create a school activity where they can work use one of the tools they´re working about in the (but ss should wiki (try to have so many different tools as possible be given a in the whole class) - it’d be better if you give them a deadline to do planning template to organize their work. the homework - let´s say a week) Activities Final presentation of each group work to the whole 50 minutes class (7-10 minutes each group) 4/5 25
  26. 26. eTwinning Learning Event Future School - School in 2020 Tiina SarisalmiThe Future School - School in 2020 TEAM M Conclusion ● Cross-curriculum writing: brief report on 50 minutes and reflection - what they have learned - how they expect that knowledge will be helpful for their future - what they’ve liked the most/the less/disliked in the activities - and if they think that their present classes can now live in that future already. (this may be preceded by a live assessment discussion in the classroom - co and hetero- assessment and activity evaluation as well) ● Publishing in Internet - ss love to share and see their work online ● Maybe they could present the work to a larger group - all classes from their level/from the entire school 5/5 26
