Integrate and Disseminate Cutting-edge Technologies to Engage Kids Learning in Elementary and Middle Schools

- A Consortium of Technology Integration/Innovation in Upstate NY

background 1
Background (1)
  • Rapid technological changes - gap between “digital natives” (Web 2.0 users)and “digital immigrants” (Web 2.1 generation) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_A-ZVCjfWf8
  • Web 2.0 – dynamic, interactive, open source
    • What is it?
    • Horizon Report (2009)
background 2
Background (2)
  • Web 2.0
    • What is it? An intro in 5 minutes
  • Educational use
    • Blog
      • 8th Graders are blogging on Presidential Campaign (Son Michael\'s Social Studies Class Blog) (2 weeks – 83 comments)
    • Wiki
      • The Anatomy wiki - a middle-school class project started in summer 2008 and began popular (10, 000) visitors… or (StephanieClassWiki)
    • YouTube
      • Science class – eg. DNA evidence to trace human origins; video by National Geographic - animals, daily news, environment, kids, maps, music, photography, science and space, travels and cultures…
      • Teachertube.com – Abraham Lincoln Reads The Gettysburg Address
    • Free webs (Goggles sites/Wikispaces…)
      • Making instant family website – a Cortland family made one during Children’s Museum time
overall goal
Overall Goal
  • Through the Consortium (name?), empower teachers, overcome barriers, disseminate cutting-edge technologies (Web 2.0), make meaningful integration of the technologies into curriculum to engage students and enhance learning outcomes in elementary and middles schools in Upstate NY …
objectives
Objectives
  • #1: Identify/develop good teaching practices integrating Web 2.0 technologies into curriculum.
  • #2: Provide support (technical and instructional design), overcome barriers, empower teachers, and disseminate the practices/activities .
  • #3: Engage students and enhance learning outcomes
the consortium
The Consortium
  • College
    • Dean, PDS coordinator
    • Faculty (instructional design, technology expertise)
    • Pre-service teachers
    • Resources
  • Schools
    • Teachers (active ones + peers)
    • Technology coordinators
    • Administrators (superintendents, principals, board…)
    • Families
    • Others
  • Other existing resources (Technology Centers in schools, Teacher Centers, Career Exchange )
  • Kids
rationale
Rationale
  • Why do we need such a system/mechanism
    • Computers oversold – underused
    • Why not using?
      • Technical skills
      • Application/Integration
      • Resources
      • Norms, conventions, values, and more
    • But if meaningful integration – could be very powerful

Theoretical Framework (1)
  • Information Ecology (Nardi, 1999)
    • Define: a system of people, practices, values, and technologies in a particular local environment.

theoretical framework 11
Theoretical Framework (1)
  • Information ecology (continued)
    • Is a complex system of parts and relationships.
    • It exhibits diversity and experiences continual evolution.
    • Different parts of an ecology coevolve, changing together according to the relationships in the system.
    • Several keystone species necessary to the survival of the ecology are present.
    • Information ecologies have a sense of locality.
theoretical framework 2
Theoretical Framework (2)
  • Backward Design (Wiggins & McTighe, 2007)
norms conventions values and more
Norms, Conventions, Values, and more…

Thirty spokes will convergeIn the hub of a wheel;But the use of the cartWill depend on the partOf the hub that is void.

With a wall all aroundA clay bowl is molded;But the use of the bowlWill depend on the partOf the bowl that is void.
