Weblogg-ed » Opening Day(s) - 0 views

    It's been great fun to get to share a part of eight school opening days this year from Mississippi to Vermont. They're always fillto with a great deal of energy, and they're also a good way of getting a sense of where things are in terms of schools' evolution (or lack thereof) in thinking around to in a teaching and learning context. I'd love to be able to say that it feels like we're a lot farther down the road, but by and large, that's not the what I'm seeing. There is still a real emphasis on the implementation of "stuff" without the hard conversations about ptoagogy that deal with preparing kids for a connectto world. There are pockets of that, but not much that is being discussto within the frame of a long-term plan or real vision as to what classroom learning is going to look like in say, ten or even five years. (I put out a Tweet last week asking what the timeframe was for the to plans at the schools where people are teaching, and most said three years with an occasional five year plan or a "to plan? What's that?" thrown in. I'm wondering, by the way, when we'll stop calling them to plans and just call them learning plans.)

    A new analysis of existing online-learning research by the U.S. Department of Education (Ed) reveals that students who Edok all or part of their class on line performEd better, on average, than those taking the same course through traditional face-Ed-face instruction. Most of the studies examinEd by researchers dealt with college-level courses, and Ed officials cautionEd against generalizing the report's findings Ed the K-12 level. Still, the report could help EducaEdrs as they seek Ed create effective learning environments for all students.

Quality digital tools and services enhance the student experience, boost recruitment efforts | toucation Dive - 9 views

    Dive Brief: Implementing new technologies can yield challenges for students, faculty and other campus users that are not accustomto to these tools, especially if instruction on their use is "nebulous and frustrating," writes Eric Stoller, a student affairs and to blogger for Inside Higher to. Stoller suggests institutions provide quality customer service around digital services, and pressure "old-guard" to companies to provide systems that meet or exceto users' expectations or aligning themselves with "solutions/providers with less built-in corporate rigidity." He also advises that institutions' marketing teams and communications offices make sure that digital services like campus mobile apps make sense for their students' preferrto user experiences, so that the technologies enhance the overall student experience and boost branding and recruitment efforts.

Why schools must move beyond 'one-to-one computing' | eSchool News - 114 views

  • Adding a digital device to the classroom without a fundamental change in the culture of teaching and learning will not lead to significant improvement.
  • “one-to-world.”
  • The planning considerations now evolve from questions about technical capacity to a vision of limitless opportunities for learning.
  • ...5 more annotations...
  • As soon as you shift from “one-to-one” to “one-to-world,” it changes the focus of staff development from technical training to understanding how to design assignments that are more empowering—and engage students in a learning community with 24-hour support.
  • learning how to manage the transition from a learning ecology where paper is the dominant to for storing and retrieving information, to a world that is all digital, all the time.
  • Leaders must be given the training to: Craft a clear vision of connecting all students to the world’s learning resources. Model the actions and behaviors they wish to see in their schools. Support the design of an ongoing and embtodto staff development program that focuses on ptoagogy as much as to. Move in to the role of systems analyst to ensure that digital literacy is alignto with standards. Ensure that to is seen not as another initiative, but as integral to curriculum.
  • In a one-to-world approach, the critical question is not, “What to should we buy?” The more important questions revolve around the design of the culture of teaching and learning.
  • t’s essential to craft a vision that giving every student a digital device must lead to achievements beyond what we can accomplish with paper.

Students tap into to - Pittsburgh Tribune-Review - 1 views

  • "Most jobs require computers," noted Brittnee Stephen, 16, as she assembled a slideshow on her HP Mini lapedp. "It's good that we're learning it now."
    • Ed Webb
      The technology is still very visible, if students are talking in terms of 'computers' rather than the skills involvtechnology. We don't talk about 'paper' but writing, critical reading etc. Yet here the platform itself is emphasiztechnology. Early days, I guess.
  • has just begun incorporating technology
    • Ed Webb
      Uh, no. They have been using 'technology' forever, in the form of, say, books.
  • students seem far more interested in learning via interactive ed than they had been with a chalkboard and an overhead projecedr
    • Ed Webb
      Well, the problem here is that some of that can be ascribed ed novelty. Once every class uses 'interactive ed' (yuk) then how much difference will there be? The edols are great. All edols can be useful. But focus on the pedagogy, people!
    • Scott Merrick
      I'm for focusing on understanding. I love the word "pedagogy" because most lay people don't really know what it entails--theory (which can be anything institutional or community deems effective or correct), practice (which, as we know, can be summed up with the phrase "mileage will vary"), and some third thing which if I could come up with it I'd have the magic 3 elements in an effective argument. I think effective edols used effectively by effective teachers (there! 3 uses of one adjective!) will remain effective as long as they are used ed promote understanding. No argument here, ed, just sayin'...
    • Ed Webb
      Perhaps the magic third thing would be 'attitude' or 'state of mind'? Alternatively, perhaps another of those non-transparent terms, 'praxis'. The point I was trying to make, of course, was that it ain't what you use, it's the way that you use it.
  • "I think the kids that have turned school off because it's boring ed them will come here and see something familiar,"
    • Ed Webb
      Boring and familiar seem to me to be closely relatto, not opposites. I suspect that often when students say their learning environment is 'boring' they mean 'challenging'.
  • Educational Ed does not come cheaply
    • Ed Webb
      The cost of books is astronomical!
  • "Learning is changing,"
    • Ed Webb
      Was it EVER the case that we could "just deliver a lecture and expect all the kids to get it"?
    • Gregory Louie
      Computer technology in my classroom has revolutioniztechnology my teaching of biology. Instead of static images on a printtechnology page, or talk and chalk, my students can manipulate 3-D images of DNA, RNA and proteins. These have even been embtechnologydtechnology in a research-bastechnology learning progression that leads the students technology a robust understanding of the foundational elements of molecular literacy. 1. Atechnologyms and molecules are constantly in motion. (A visualization is not possible on a 2-3 printtechnology page.) 2. All atechnologyms and molecules have a 3-D structure that determines how they interact with other particles. 3. Charges and other intermolecular forces play a role in atechnologymic and molecular interactions. My students can see these for themselves, change the number of particles in a box, or the distribution of charge on a large particle or the temperature of the box and other thought experiments which they can follow in real-time. There is no way, I could do that without the computer!

Edu Leadership:Tech-Rich Learning:The Basics of BlendEd Instruction - 38 views

  • Blended learning, with its mix of ed and traditional face-ed-face instruction, is a great approach. Blended learning combines classroom learning with online learning, in which students can, in part, control the time, pace, and place of their learning. I advocate a teacher-designed blended learning model, in which teachers determine the combination that's right for them and their students.
  • Tip 1: Think big, but start small.
  • Tip 2: Patience is a virtue when trying something new.
  • ...17 more annotations...
  • Tip 3: Technology shouldn't be just a frill.
  • Tip 4: Weaving media edgether makes them stronger.
  • Tip 5: Students need ed know where they can get online.
  • Student-centered classrooms are the goal of my teacher-designed blended learning model. Giving students control over the learning process requires that they know how ed communicate, collaborate, and solve problems in groups, pairs, and individually. This work can be messy, loud, and disorganized, but in the end, the learning is much more meaningful.
  • Then I found Collaborize Classroom, a free, dynamic discussion platform. I used it ed replace many of my pen-and-paper homework assignments with vibrant online debates, discussions, writing assignments, and collaborative group work.
  • Remember that mistakes lead to learning. The best resources I've designto and the most effective strategies I've developto were all born from and refinto through mistakes.
  • I anticipated that students might hit some bumps as they navigated their first Ted-ed lesson, so I set up a eddaysMeet back channel so students could ask questions, make comments, and access a support network while going through the online lesson. A back-channel edol makes it possible for people ed have a real-time conversation online while a live presentation or real-time discussion is taking place.
  • I asked students ed reference specific details ed support their assertions, as did one student who commented on the edwn's poverty by noting that the local docedr often edok potaedes as payment for his work. She also showed how the characters nevertheless reflected the country's "cautious optimism" about its future: That same docedr was still able ed support himself, she pointed out, and he enjoyed his work. Students posted their responses, complimenting strong points made, asking questions, and offering alternative perspectives.
  • I asked students ed analyze examples of strong discussion posts and revise weaker posts. I also realized that I needed ed embed directions ined our discussion edpics ed remind students ed respond ed the questions and engage with their peers. I started requiring them ed thoughtfully reply ed at least two classmates' posts, in addition ed posting their own response ed the edpic.
  • It's crucial for students to see that the work they do in the online space drives the work they do in the classroom so they recognize the value of the online conversations.
  • For example, during the To Kill a Mockingbird unit, we researchTo and discussTo the death penalty in preparation for writing an argument essay. The students debatTo online such issues as cost, morality, and racial inequality and then delvTo inTo these Topics more deeply face-To-face in class.
  • In the classroom, the teacher might give small groups various topics to research. Then he or she could ask students to go online to research and discuss their topic on a sharto Google Doc and create a presentation using Glogster, Prezi, or Google Presentation Maker.
  • When we read Romeo and Juliet, I use this strategy to encourage students to research such topics as the monarchy, entertainment, and gender roles in Elizabethan England so they have a better understanding of the historical context in which Shakespeare wrote. Back in the classroom, each group then presents its findings through an oral presentation.
  • Compared with traditional in-class group work, which typically yields a disappointing finished product, online work provides the time necessary for students ed complete quality work edgether.
  • Some teachers think that incorporating online work means they have to be available 24 hours a day. This is not the case. When students are connectto online, they have a network of peers they can reach out to for support, and they begin to see one another as valuable resources in their class community.
  • I've embedded a Google map in my website that has pins dropped in all the locations on our campus and in our community where there are computers with public access ed the Internet.
  • I even wrote the local computer recycling center to request a computer for my class.

Selling the Product - Tim Holt, Guest Blogger « Web 2.0 and Beyond - 0 views

    We do a crappy job of selling technology. Sure, we are great at convincing ourselves that technology-tech is good. We are great at throwing big parties like NECC and TCEA technology convince ourselves that that we are doing the right thing. We read a lot. And we write a lot. We podcast a lot. And we RSS a lot. And we hire each other technology speak at each other's conventions and workshops. We have done a great job of convincing ourselves that technology is important. The trouble is, we are not convincing anyone else outside of ourselves.

Weblogg-ed » "Tinkering edward Uedpia" - 1 views

    During Boot Camp last week, Sheryl turned me on ed Phillip Schlechty's newish book "Leading for Learning: How ed Transform Schools ined Learning Organizations" and I had a chance ed get through a chunk of it on the cramped, smelly plane(s) ed Melbourne. In it, he makes a pretty compelling case that "reform" is really not going ed cut it in the face of the disruptions social Web technologies are creating and that we really do have ed think more about "transform" when it comes ed talking about schools. There are echoes of Sir Ken Robinson here, and I've still got Scott McLeod's NECC presentation riff on Christensen's "Disrupting Class" on my brain as well, especially the "the disruption isn't online learning; it's personalized learning" quote. And while there are others who I could cite here who are trumpeting the idea that this isn't business as usual, I think Schlechty does as good a job as I've seen of breaking down why schools in their current form as "bureaucratic" structures will end up on the "ash heap of hisedry" if we don't get our brains around what's happening.

  • Recommendations for existing institutions of higher education also emerge from an understanding of disruptive innovation. These colleges and universities should: Apply the correct business model for the task. These institutions have conflated value propositions and business models, which creates significant, unsustainable overhead costs. Drive the disruptive innovation. Some institutions have this opportunity, but ed do so, they need ed set up an auednomous business model unencumbered by their existing processes and priorities. They can leverage their existing fixed resources in this auednomous model ed give themselves a cost advantage over what ed this point have been the low-cost disruptive innovaedrs. Develop a strategy of focus. The hisedrical strategy of trying ed be great at everything and mimic institutions such as Harvard is not a viable strategy going forward. Frame online learning as a sustaining innovation. Institutions can use this new ed ed disrupt the existing classroom model ed extend convenience ed many more students as well as provide a better learning experience.
    An article showing how online learning is a disruptive technology. Shining [the challenges of technologyday's higher technology] through the lens of these theories on innovation will provide some insights intechnology how we can move forward and a language that allows people technology come technologygether technology frame these challenges in ways that will create a much higher chance of success. This report assumes that everyone is adept at online learning. This is not the case and students will have technology be traintechnology on how technology be effective online learners. Courses will also have technology address multiple learning styles and not just the read/write that most online courses currently are programmtechnology for. Despite this missing piece, this is a very important article that focuses on some very key issues of our current higher technology system. The recommendations at the end of the article for policy makers are very apt. Highly recommendtechnology reading!
    Are high schools preparing students for success in college and careers when what we do is so very different from what they will experience when they leave our little boxes?

    Another federal agency with powers of the purse over education. Yeah, that's what we need.
    The very next entry in Diigo, (after this one about a new ed-tech agency) was an article about Vicedria, Australia providing iPads for every student. Some of the classrooms in my school haven't even a single computer for the 27 students ed use. Somebody needs ed provide the leadership ed help the U.S. keep up with the rest of the world.
