TRANSCRIPT

  • Slides will progress automatically or you can advance them manually. Click the Escape key to end the slide show.

  • Teaching in the Twenty First CenturyFocus is on mastery of subject specific standards set nationally / statewide / locally as measured by standardized tests.

    ISTE NETS provide a framework for educators to use when teaching skills needed for the Digital Age.

    Two pedagogical approaches for class activities:teacher-centered popular in Industrial Agestudent-centered more appropriate for Digital Age (Newmann, Bryk, & Nagaoka, 2001)

  • Teacher-Centered Learning

    Focus on fact memorization and ability to recall information on standardized tests

    Teacher decides information to present via lecture, textbook material, or directed reading assignments.

    Little student collaboration / input into activity design.

  • Student-Centered LearningActivities focused on problem solvingStudents formulate or consider problems

    Students decide what information is needed and how to obtain it

    Students analyze information and propose solutions

    Students develop social skills work collaboratively

  • Developing Student-Centered Learning Environments using TechnologyI. Learn basic functions of Computer Applications

    Word Processing(edit & format text and columns; create outlines, generate tables; insert graphsSpreadsheets(perform calculations, sort data, create graphs / charts)Graphic Organizers(insert graphics, video, audio files; generate outlines from concept maps; create links

  • Developing Student-Centered Learning Environments using Technology

    II. Learn how to integrate student use of basic computer functions into lessons

    Match course objectives with computer functions

    Trial run class activity using targeted application

  • Developing Student-Centered Learning Environments using Technology

    III. Teacher to assume role of facilitator

    Inquiry Based Learning

    Problem-Based Learning

    Project-Based Learning

  • Developing Student-Centered Learning Environments using Technology IV. Teacher creates a classroom with computer management plan to includePre Computer ActivitiesTeach / model the application ; share output rubricAt Computer ActivitiesProcess and manipulate information to enhance understanding (Gardner, 1991)Reconcile observations with knowledge base (Savery & Duffy 1995)Post Computer ActivitiesShare findings with others and evaluate own information (Festinger, 1957)

  • Developing Student-Centered Learning Environments using Technology

    V. Develop trouble shooting plans

    Potential Equipment / Connectivity issues

    Lack of student technology skills

    **Discuss No Child Left Behind reform movement, the ISTE website where technology standards for teachers and students can be found (http://www.iste.org/standards/nets-for-teachers.aspx ) and the movement in classes across the USA towards lessons that incorporate the technology that children use and see everyday and will need to be successful in the future.Discuss traditional arrangement of desks which puts the teacher on stage and students as audience members like in a movie. Reflects order required in factories assembly lines where everyone did tasks they were told how to do without giving much thought to why they were doing it that way or how it could be done differently or more efficiently.*Discuss the differences between collaborative groups and traditional learning groups as outlined on page 15 of Morrison, G. R. & Lowther, D. L. (2010). Integrating Computer Technology into the Classroom: Skills for the 21st Century, 4 ed: Allyn & Bacon.

Published by Allyn & Bacon. 2010*Teachers will need to become comfortable using the same computer applications for finding and presenting information they plan their students to use in lessons or activities.*All three place teacher in the role of mentor or coach. Students solve problems via information gathering and manipulation which leads to authentic learning.*Desks are arranged to allow for collaborative work, computers or laptops are placed near power sources and instructions for relevant applications or hardware are posted near computers. *Put easy to understand instructions in computer area for using application(s) called for in lesson. Ask students with technology skills to serve as mentors to those who are unskilled.
