A science teacher from Custer told me that her students had posed two questions this year about earth science that they were unable to answer from researching a variety of sources. She posed both questions to Jack Bacon and he was able provide clear answers and some related resources for her to take back to her students. She was elated.
In Doug and my session, we showcased the Teach For America book, Teaching As Leadership and its companion website. People were pretty enthusiastic about the tools on the website.
Go to http://www.teachingasleadership.org
Click on “Invest students their families” – from the list on the left
Click on “Create a welcoming environment” – from this same list, after it opens
Click on the “Illustrations” tab in the middle of the page
Click on 2nd grade under the “Exemplary” example
Click on the video and enjoy!
This four minute video clip has a teacher talking about how she creates a welcoming environment, and then her students also discuss it. The research articles and practical hints are also excellent. Notice the six principles (listed on the left of the home page) and the rubric of teacher actions all of this is based on. It’s all pretty impressive.
We had a great time in the Prairie Winds In-depth "The Emergent Classroom" discussing emergent learning and practicing it through improvisation (among other things). Sixteen teachers utilized 45 instruments to improvise a musical piece more than 11 minutes long... available for your ipod enjoyment at http://conference2010.tie2.wikispaces.net/file/view/01%20-%20Free%20Improvisation.mp3
“Using the iPod Touch in the K-12 Classroom,” facilitated by Nora Groft and Shelley Fischbach from the Northwestern Area School DistrictI. Her wiki page contains info and a slideshow with some good information. In essence each student has their own iPod Touch to use and take home, but the teacher controls what apps are on the devices and they are all things such as dictionaries, literature related videos and movies, ebooks, Constitution and Declaration of Independence, etc. etc. She is able to sync all devices with one iMac and one iTunes account.
I thoroughly enjoyed the TIE Conference. It was simply amazing to see the variety of tasks that can be accomplished across all content areas with this piece of technology!
Side note: Nora is one of our AP English online teachers in Learning Power as well.
I attended a presentation by SharlaSteever from Hill City. She brought three of her 4th graders with her to present.
These 3 ten yr olds were very professional in sharing their information on using a website to increase math scores and how they make power points and publish brochures.
I appreciated the preparation that these students did and confidence with which they spoke. I thought what a great learning experience for them to speak in front of a room of adults and share their knowledge.
