Welcome School Board. How can we bridge our students to allow them the optimal opportunities to be successful in the 21st century?This presentation will outline 4 goals and supporting details about those goals.
Point 1: Bringing technology to the remote areas such as North Dakota through ITV, IVN, Skype, Interactive Smart BoardsPoint 2: Educators have also found valuable thinking tools among the technology applications available for educational purposes.Interactive technology in high schools brought the expectations of those same technologies at colleges and universities.Students are leaving high school with the knowledge of smart boards and not having the same opportunities in college.Point 3: The use of chalk and chalkboard has been replaced by interactive boards. Students no longer will sit unnoticed in the back of a classroom. Point 4: Student’s works more freely together and through their interaction and collaboration, students become a stronger educational unit. Students now look forward to using an active board where in the past they were apprehensive to working in front of the class.
Column 1: By using the internet, the world can be brought to the classroom with virtual tours. Using Google Earth, for example, The teacher can show real images of the Great Pyramids.Column 2: Students will learn how to search for information via the internet. The excitement of learning, kinetically, will motivate them to “dig deep” in their research.Column 3: Students who were given the tools to use within the classroom were more actively involved in the daily lessons. They were able to witness events from outside of their environment and were eager to participate in the daily instruction.
Students are gaining more options and access to emerging technologies. Starting at a younger age, students become more reliant on technology. The schools’ supplies list is also evolving. Laptops, as a tool, can be very engaging. Students are able to have the world at their fingertips.E-readers- such as the Kindle or Nook, allow for books and curriculum to be downloaded. No more 60 pound backpacks.I-Pad- is an audio-visual machine similar to a laptop. It provides a plethora of information and uses.
NCLB has raised the expectations through clearly defined standards.Chalk and Chalkboards talks about how students have gone away from the use of chalkboards to now using white boards. In time the chalkboards will be a thing of the past.Students more freely says that students will work collaboratively and will also work simultaneously. There will be no more waiting your turn or skipping students.Past to present states that 25 years ago very few schools had even a single computer in the classroom. Today nearly every classroom has multiple computers and nearly every school has computer labs and white boards.
Is the cost of technology really to much?
This offers a few items of technology from a decade ago compared to today. The dollars in parentheses is what it would cost today. http://ebandit.in/wp-content/uploads/2011/02/cost-of-technology.jpg
Research indicates that the use of these types of technologies prepare students for the future. A break down of costs to set up an educational theater in school.
To ensure that we are meeting our mission statement, are we ensuring that our students are getting the opportunities they deserve? The sky is the limit and we must provide our students the tools to build the bridge to the 21st century.
