Thinking Creatively: Teachers as designers of Content, Technology and Pedagogy part1 - ... - 4 views

  •  
    I actually watched each of the presentations (I only bookmarked the first) because they were all so entertaining and thought-provoking. I especially like the history of technology (e.g. oral to writing to print) and the threats each was perceived to have on the previous. I wonder if showing these to teachers might introduce our county's "21st century learning" initiative and the need for the "less than willing" to embrace constantly changing technology.

Digital Education Revolution - 4 views

  •  
    Interesting ideas are developed in this "Digital Education Revolution" document that arrives to a conclusion we have been flirting with as well: "Perhaps the most important finding from our analysis is that technology leadership has greater leverage on desired outcomes than does technology infrastructure and expenditures"

"We didn't have [x] when I was a kid and I turned out okay" - 2 views

  •  
    Have you ever said or thought this: "We didn't have [x] when I was a kid and I turned out okay"? You might be interested on an article shared by George Couros in Twitter. The author says if this argument is valid, so these others are too: "Buses? We walked to school barefoot, in the snow, uphill both ways!", "Electricity? Pshaw! Do you know how dangerous those wires are? When we were kids we had oil lamps and candles and everything was fine.", "Agriculture? Hah! It's the ruin of society! Kids are just sitting around getting soft while they watch the crops grow. When I was a child we actually had to run after our food. We were tough, not like these kids today.", etc… Check it out!

    The knee-jerk reactions that teachers (& yes, me too!) have against new technology applications are perfectly understandable. Change is not always easy, but attitudes will depend on how things are introduced and explored. I successfully avoided Facebook for a year until a friend sat me down and went through it (it was also the only way to communicate with her, so I had to!) Some of the negativity from teachers must be connected to how technologies are introduced to them. Being told "you are doing this, this and this now" without any explanation or support is bound to develop negativity.

TPACK: Strengths and weaknesses - 1 views

  •  
    This is a very useful article which not only gives you a theoretical background, but it presents some criteria to examine the TPACK framework and identify weaknesses. It suggests at the same time fields that must have a deeper theoretical development. Comprehensive but succinct.

TPACK and literacy! - 0 views

  •  
    As an ESL teacher, this is the type of article I definitely wanted to find. This paper discusses new literacy practices that can be enabled through "the creative repurposing of digital technologies" as the author calls it. The article supports the idea of teachers as designers of curriculum, who "repurpose" existing technical tools for pedagogical purposes. And, all is focused on literacy practices. Definitely, a clearer view of integration between technology, pedagogy and content.

    Wow! I loved how easy he "untangled" the components and helps us understand and use the metalanguage of TPACK just by using paper and colored pens! (I saw this video has more hits than others on the same topic... I guess that's why!)

    Short video on TPACK
  •  
    This was the most helpful explanation of TPACK and how it works in a classroom that I found.
  •  
    I really liked the way TPACK was presented in this. It was very understandable. The added component of "context" is also extremly important in applying and understanding the knowledge considered in this structure

    Good overview of the components of TPACK

    "Henrico County Schools System has adopted the TPACK as the Framework for professional development and 21st Century Learning in the Henrico County Schools System. Henrico County is one of the largest and earliest districts to pioneer and implement a one-to-one initiative. They have adopted this model as its conceptual framework to guide their progress towards the 21st Century Learning."
