  1. CRASH Patty Deering Vicki Matchett Paula Smith Renata Sorel

  2. Mr. Sloan is a high school principal in a small, rural community. Several parents have complained to him that the school does not offer advanced placement courses in several areas. He knows his district cannot afford to hire teachers for these subjects. He has heard about virtual courses in these topics offered by a consortium in another state, and he thinks this would be a good idea for his district. He tells the superintendent that since the more advanced students would be the ones taking these courses, they should do well in them.

  3. PAST

  4. With technology distance becomes a thing of the past. • Opportunity for education Distance

  5. What is distance learning • snail mail • telecourses • videoconferencing • internet • online classroom materials • Web-based lessons (such as Webquests) • Virtual courses and programs

  6. Relative Advantage • Fast access to information • Access to experts globally • Fast communication • Resources to support collaboration • Access to courses not offered locally • Access to education for homebound students • Ideas from multiple sources • Interaction • Enrichment/Remediation • Transportation costs • Makes the impossible, possible

  7. Assumptions? Poor Predictors of Success Better Predictors of Success • Self-efficacy • Achievement beliefs • Cognitive Style • Responsibility • Self organization skills • Technology skill/access Could you be a successful online learner?

  8. Sloan Report Major Assumption • Online learning is used for advanced placement and more capable students BUT… “The students [taking online courses] vary from excelling students, students in and out of juvenile detention that do not succeed in a regular classroom, expecting parents, parents trying to finish school after having had babies…, and students trying to graduate before their 21st birthday.” “On line courses helped our students who were over aged and behind at least one grade level. Some were able to catch up in grades 9-12 and some were able to graduate because of the availability of the courses.” “On-line offerings have made it possible for at-risk students to earn make-up credit for graduation purposes; advanced students can take courses that we do not offer.”

  9. Strategies to Support Student Learning • Site capturing software • Intranets • Electronic whiteboards

  10. Strategies to Support Student Learning • Ensure ample communication between student/teacher • Support during the course • Minimal technical problems • Engaging, collaborative activities • Assess the quality of course prior to having his students take it • Complete post course evaluation

  11. Assessment • Myeducationlab • Assessment • Rubric for Online Instruction • Rubric for assessing interactive qualities of distance courses Rubric for Online Instruction

  12. Scenario #5 Ms. Courtney’s students are working in groups to do research projects. However, each group wants to bookmark many websites for their projects, and the list of bookmarks is so long that students cannot locate theirs anymore; it takes too long to find them. Mission Possible

  13. “Students are spending way too much time listening to their teachers and not enough time developing critical thinking skills through collaborative work” Kelly Gallagher DELICIOUS

  14. Organizing and Sharing • Favourites (Internet Explorer) • Bookmark (Firefox) • Student Share files • or • social bookmarking – better

  15. Relative Advantage • Stored both in Internet Explorer and Delicious website. • Instantly accessible • At home, school, away • Re-image – “favourites disappear” (unless you have it saved somewhere else) • Syncronized • Error free • Hyperlinked • Efficient • Shared • Your choice

  16. Assessment • Rubric to include the following: • sites verified Plagiarism websitePlagiarism website #2 • number of sites referenced - triangulation • contributions to share list • evidence of site evaluation

  17. Self-Evaluation and Revising • Reflection and evaluation of self and group (survey monkey) • Students could create own account – • Validity of sites teacher / student • Quality of sites • Plan teacher (revise the project) NEXT STEPS
