  1. Welcome to theNWOET / WGTE Tech ToolsConference Presenter: Amy Poland Topic: Student Friendly Technology

  2. LEARNING TARGET • I can identify reasons to incorporate technology into my classroom. • I can create a list of technologies that will be useful to my students. • I can collaborate and organize my individually chosen technologies into “Purpose Categories”. • I can develop a “Game Plan” for implementation within my classroom.

  3. Why incorporate technology into my classroom? ANY GIVEN PROBLEM “We, as teachers, are preparing students for careers that don’t exist and haven’t even been thought of yet.” -Unknown As a result, students need to become; 1. intelligent problem solvers and 2. responsible, socially aware citizens who are prepared to live and succeed in the world.

  4. It’s the future . . . if we aren’t teaching it, we aren’t truly preparing our students.

  5. How is it really helping?“I’m using PowerPoint, isn’t that enough?” • Teacher Driven Technology • Benefits: passive learners, quieter, easier to maintain control, guide instruction towards teacher chosen goals • Negatives: passive learners, usually lacks intrinsic motivation • Student Driven Technology • Benefits: built-in motivation, collaboration, teaching by “pull” not “push”, problem solving, access at home • Negatives: noisier, requires more teacher prep

  6. Explaining Web 1.0 / 2.0 / 3.0(Descriptions paraphrased from Wikipedia) • Web 1.0 • First stage of the World Wide Web • Links webpages with hyperlinks • One-way flow of information • Static pages • Web 2.0 • Second stage of the World Wide Web • Participatory information sharing • Allows for Collaboration • Ex. Social networking, blogs, wikis, YouTube • Web 3.0 • Future of the World Wide Web • Virtual blending of online and offline worlds • Increases in computer intelligence • Remembering personal “likes” and “dislikes”
