Integrate and disseminate cutting edge technologies to engage kids learning in elementary and middle schools

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

Theoretical Framework (1)

  • Information Ecology (Nardi, 1999)

    • Define: a system of people, practices, values, and technologies in a particular local environment.

    • Metaphorical


Information ecology

Information Ecology

Epistemological & Ethical beliefs

Technical Support

Current technology

Time

Budget

Teachers

Management issues

District laws

Activities (meaningful integration)

peers

Kids

Knowledge structure

family

interest

Peers


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.
