Tech n 21st century learning presentation

  1. 1. NO MORE PENCILS, NO MORE BOOKS, No more teachers… …Writing, Erasing, Writing again, Drawing, Cutting, Pasting, Pulling their hair out, well, actually we can’t help you with the last one, sorry.
  2. 2. Do you remember when… Radio was the newest form of communication? TV first appeared and everything was black and white? Color first arrived to our living room sets? You bought your first pager or cell phone
  3. 3. What does this have to do with today?  These developments were just the beginning of the advancement of technology  At first many people thought they were needless and too confusing to operate, yet, we all became accustomed to having them in our every day life.  Today we live in a Cyber World and as Educators we owe it to our students to learn the latest technology that the world has to offer.
  4. 4. Making ourselves aware of today's cutting edge technology. New tricks of the trade Ways to get the information It all starts with the WILL to want to learn something new!
  5. 5. Welcome to the 21st Century! Technology in the Classroom.. Presentation developed by: Drew Krumholz & Kim Levering Copyright 2008, all rights reserved!

  7. 7. What is Technology?  Any modification of the natural world designed by human beings to solve human problems, enhance human life, or extend human capability.  It was identified by the United States Department of Labor as an essential workplace competency in a 1992 report called the Secretary's Commission on Achieving Necessary Skills (SCANS).
  8. 8. Why do we need to include it?  SCANS stated that students should be able to select equipment and tools, apply technology to specific tasks, and maintain and troubleshoot equipment.  The Department of Education recognized its importance by including technology in the original cross-content workplace readiness standards. Standards 8.1, 8.2  Technological literacy has been further emphasized by its inclusion as a separate standards area which focuses on both computer and information literacy and technology education.

  9. 9. Challenges and Concerns How much is too much?  Will our students become dependant, will they find inappropriate material, will they be able to relate to other human beings?  Inappropriately used in the classroom, technology can be used to perpetuate old models of teaching and learning. Students can be "plugged into computers" to do drill and practice that is not so different from workbooks. Teachers can use multimedia technology to give more colorful, stimulating lectures. Both of these have their place, but such use does not begin to tap the power of these new tools.
  10. 10. New Tools of the Trade!!
  11. 11. POWER POINT “2.0” Taking PowerPoint to the next level… Creative project in which students design a PowerPoint including facts (research), creative imagery, and their own VOICE RECORDING. Great for foreign languages, history, math, English or just about any class!
  12. 12. E-PAL Connecting Students Around the Globe… Way to connect students and classrooms around the world Similar to a pen pal via email http://www.epals.com/ Not only useful in a foreign language classroom! Forums, suggested activities, BLOGS, discussion starters, polls… a TRUE GLOBAL COMMUNITY!
  13. 13. PODCASTS AND VODCASTS Podcasting in its true form is extremely useful in any classroom Podcasts are not only about recording voice… they can be extremely creative and engaging Can be used as form of student assessment or as a useful tool in almost any lesson by the teacher QuickTime™ and a Let’s look at a sample podcast decompressor are needed to see this picture.
  14. 14. Wikispaces •Collaboration/team writing & revising •Sharing of information •Easy access to other information on the web •Different forum for posting research and developing writing skills •Can constantly be modified/revised •Easy to post
  15. 15. Blogging •Web-based discussion forum •Sharing of information •Continuous discussion •Interactive/collaborative-students can post new discussions or comment on peer’s previous postings •Fosters critical thinking and meaningful conversation •Opportunity for students to participate in class discussion, outside of the classroom! They love it!
  16. 16. THE “NING” In the coming school year (‘09-’10), all of my students in Spanish 1 will become members of my “ning.” *Students will write in Spanish in an environment that is familiar and meaningful to them (Ning is very similar to facebook). *They will develop their written and conversational Spanish skills through a fun and relevant approach *As often as they access facebook, AIM, I-Chat—they will get into the habit of accessing Ning. *The development of an online community of students from 8 different classes all learning Spanish and conversing/practicing with one another on a regular basis!
  17. 17. Creating a 21st Century Environment…  IPods  Incorporate music appreciation  Students hear the language/develop listening skills, speaking skills, vocabulary, confidence with the language!  Computers  Work Plans  Taking notes- organized and neat  EASY ACCESS TO IMPORTANT COURSE MATERIAL  Newsletters, Emails  Textbooks on-line  gain knowledge through other mediums, some websites read text to students and allow ESL students to hear stories in their native language  Cameras  Classroom photographers
  18. 18. What are we looking at as educators? The reality is that children today are growing up in a multi-media environment, according to Dr. Noboru Kobayashi at a symposium in Tokyo in 1998. Children can broaden their knowledge through the use of technology. Sourrce: http://www.newhorizons.org/trans/international/dickinson_tokyo.htm
  19. 19. Our role as educators…  It is, indeed, our responsibility to meaningfully integrate technology into our classrooms  The question that we ask ourselves is, to what extent is technology useful and how should it be properly used?  How can we “scaffold” activities integrating technology so that students can maximize their experiences?
  20. 20. It’s time for change! As expert Linda A. Tsantis points out, educators must rethink their existing educational paradigms— they exist around a view of society that no longer exists Integrating technology and multimedia activities helps to prepare students to “accept, adapt to, and thrive upon change.” Source:
  21. 21. What needs to be done…  According to a report in 2002 from the National Academy of Engineering:  Learning about technology should begin in Kindergarten and should be infused into all subjects across the board as a tool for instruction in curricula, teaching materials and in student assessment  Educators must understand the difference between knowing what “technology” is and what it means to be technologically literate  Educators must be taught how to teach technology— how to integrate it into a well balanced program in which all subjects infuse technology  Technology can no longer be viewed as a separate subject (IE: computer class, shop class)—now, it is part of every class!
  22. 22. The sky is the limit!  “If used incorrectly, all technology will do is add some more color to that which is traditional. When used appropriately, technology will foster interactive approaches to learning and promote higher order thinking amongst students (http://www.newhorizons.org/strategies/technology/front_tech. htm).”  So let’s get to work teachers! The sky truly is your limit!
