  3. 3. Warm-up: Do you learn with your computer? What do you expect from using computer?
  4. 4. We educators really hope students learn with computers: search for learning resources do online courses do research create and contribute think critically communicate and collaborate sort and recreate explain, elaborate, show…
  5. 5. ISTE's NETS for Students (2007)  Demonstrate creativity and innovation  Communicate and collaborate  Conduct research and use information  Think critically, solve problems, and make decisions  Use technology effectively and productively
  6. 6. What we must do in schools:
  7. 7. Change for what : Students’ Learning active learning replaces passive learning high order thinking replaces superficial thinking project-based learning replaces recalling rich resources replaces limited resources big society replaces small classrooms students self-directed learning replaces teacher-directed learning
  8. 8. Change what? Teachers are prepared well for teaching in the new learning environment No.1
  9. 9. Change what? Learning objectives and curriculum No.2
  10. 10. Change what? Technology leadership for the direction & support No.3
  11. 11. Change what? Learning resources available at hands No.4
  12. 12. Change what? School internal learning environments No.5
  13. 13. Change what? School Society No.6 Schools as a part of the whole learning society
  14. 14. We do have some positive changes:  Schools do get a great deal of technology equipment  Policies support schools to use technology in classrooms  Rich teaching and learning resources  Useful learning tools help students thinking, learning, communicating, collaborating,creating…  Teachers gradually choose to use technology to support their teaching
  15. 15. We do have some problems to solve:  PPT are widely used, but sometimes used inappropriately  Isolated learning replaces individualized learning  Superficial learning  Digital divide  Teachers get into trouble when there are unexpected technology problems  Low efficiency when technology is not used properly
  16. 16. We have to do more on: Enhancing learning by using Technology in schools
  17. 17. We have to clarify: Teaching with technology Teaching + Technology or
  18. 18. Two classroom stories: Learning + technology (Teacher Wang _ Language Arts)  Data collecting  Beautiful ppt of sea  Discussions on how to protect sea from pollution The Sea  Not any instruction on data collecting  Multimedia is too attractive  Discussion in Chinese
  19. 19. Two classroom stories: Learning with technology —Teacher Wu (Science )  Blog  Field trip  Wiki  Project-based learning
  20. 20. We share the same ideas: Whether computers are used well depends the pedagogical knowledge and skills of teachers who design their use in the classrooms. ----p4, Eileen M. Coppola Coppola, E. M. (2004). Powering Up: Learning to Teach Well with Technology. New York: Teachers College Press
  21. 21. We have to find out: Technology as a solution for what?
  22. 22. We have to consider:  What can teachers and students do with computers in their classrooms to enhance learning?  And how?  What problems they are facing in making learning be more effective by using technology?  And why?  If we hope teachers do better by using technology than what they did before, what we’d better do to support them?
  23. 23. Teachers need support for:  How to use technology (knowledge and skills on computer hardware and software _ initial needs)  How to integrate technology into classrooms( instructional design, resources, strategies of implementation, assessment… )  Making preparation for education future recording-blended-learning-make-it-work-for-your-district/
