Ready or Not . . .The World is Different

How we work
10

"Knowing content" is not sufficient in itself --

knowledge to

rather, students must apply
construct new understandings,
solve problems
  make decisions
develop products and
communicate
Technology can facilitate this type of learning
11
Transforming Learning Environments
Traditional Environments
Emerging Learning Landscape
Teacher directed, memory-focused instruction
Student-centered, performance-focused learning
Isolated work on invented exercises
Collaborative work on authentic, real-work
projects
Factual, literal thinking for competence
Creative thinking for innovation and original
solutions
12
Our Reality
  • Labs within our rooms - 2-3 students per computer
  • CFF Cohort 2 School - 1 to 1 in my classroom
  • Students arrive with intuitiveness, but not the
    specific skills to use the technology - We need
    to teach the skills first or in conjunction with
    the curriculum
  • Students may or may not have access to the
    internet and other software at home

13
Pedagogical Foundations
  • Curriculum must drive the need for technology
    integration
  • Technology is simply the tool used to facilitate
    student-centered learning
  • Technology makes it easier to accomplish
  • Taxonomy of Technology Use1
  • Experiencing
  • Informing
  • Reinforcing
  • Integrating
  • Utilizing

National Educational Technology Standards for
Students
  • Creativity and Innovation
  • Communication Collaboration
  • Research Information Fluency
  • Critical Thinking, Problem-Solving,
    Decision-Making
  • Digital Citizenship
  • Technology Operations and Concepts

15
Problem Solving Decision Making
What students should know and be able to do to
learn effectively and live productively in an
increasingly digital world ...
  • Students use critical thinking skills to plan and
    conduct research, manage projects, solve problems
    and make informed decisions using appropriate
    digital tools and resources. Students
  • identify and define authentic problems and
    significant questions for investigation.
  • plan and manage activities to develop a
    solution or complete a project.
  • collect and analyze data to identify solutions
    and/or make informed decisions.
  • use multiple processes and diverse perspectives
    to explore alternative solutions.
