The End of the Beginning

  • Students are native speakers of the digital age
  • Computers, video games, pagers, cell phones, internet, blogs, instant messaging, downloading, and wikis are familiar terms to twenty-first century students.
  • According to Prensky, schools stuck in the twentieth century need to move into the digital age and provide students with effective technology utilization geared toward a relevant education.
  • Teachers that do not feel proficient can engage students in dialog, investigation, and monitored exploration about ways to incorporate technology utilization into the curriculum.
  • Educators must utilize technology by creating learning environments that foster real, rich, and relevant experiences for students.
  • Prensky, M. (2006, December/January). Listen to the natives. Educational Leadership, 63(4), 8-13

Common Core Standards- A New Beginning

  • The Common Core State Standards provide a consistent, clear understanding of what students are expected to learn, so teachers and parents know what they need to do to help them. The standards are designed to be robust and relevant to the real world, reflecting the knowledge and skills that our young people need for success in college and careers. With American students fully prepared for the future, our communities will be best positioned to compete successfully in the global economy.


The End of the Beginning

  • We are no longer introducing ‘new’ technology to kids who have never seen it before
    • Most classrooms are now technologically interactive in one way or another
  • While not all classrooms have all of these tools, most have some of them
  • Our job as educators might now be to make sure these tools are well used
  • It is okay if technology drives the learning every now and then

Common Core Initiative

  • What are educational standards?
  • Educational standards help teachers ensure their students have the skills and knowledge they need to be successful by providing clear goals for student learning.
  • Why do we need educational standards?
  • We need standards to ensure that all students, no matter where they live, are prepared for success in postsecondary education and the workforce. Common standards will help ensure that students are receiving a high quality education consistently, from school to school and state to state. Common standards will provide a greater opportunity to share experiences and best practices within and across states that will improve our ability to best serve the needs of students.Standards do not tell teachers how to teach, but they do help teachers figure out the knowledge and skills their students should have so that teachers can build the best lessons and environments for their classrooms. Standards also help students and parents by setting clear and realistic goals for success. Standards are a first step – a key building block – in providing our young people with a high-quality education that will prepare them for success in college and work. Of course, standards are not the only thing that is needed for our children’s success, but they provide an accessible roadmap for our teachers, parents, and students.



See your strengths and past successes

  • Ask teachers what they are comfortable doing right now with the technology that they have. Most teachers who graduated before 2005 have some skills.
  • Teachers who graduate after 2005 have lots of skills.
  • Most children come to school already predisposed to learning with technology (Dezell, 1988) and it has become a primary source for information, culture, and communication for society. In some ways high tech learning might be considered as an alternative to the traditional classroom particularly for students who are likely to drop out of school.
  • Find out what their Core Curriculum Strengths are – what areas do they have the most confidence in teaching.

Dezell, J. E. (1988). A new age in education. T H E Journal, 16(4), 8.



See your strengths and past successes

  • Children do not know a time without travel in space, beepers, hand held phones, and the World Wide Web (Lemke & Coughlin, 1998, 8). If schools are to have relevance in today’s society they need to reflect the changes as a result of technology inside the classroom.

Take a step towardssomething technologicallynew…

Even though the environment for successful technology integration seems to exist high-level technology utilization has not followed the same course. “Although the conditions for successful technology integration finally appear to be in place, including ready access technology, increased training for teachers, and a favorable policy environment, high-level technology use is still surprisingly low.” (Ertmer, 2005, 25).

Common Core States Initiative

  • Who is leading the Common Core State Standards Initiative?
  • Parents, teachers, school administrators and experts from across the country together with state leaders, through their membership in the Council of Chief State School Officers (CCSSO) and the National Governors Association Center for Best Practices (NGA Center) are leading the effort to develop a common core of state standards.

Goal: Match Core Curriculum with Technology Integration

  • Ask them to try one new thing and then …
    • Show them how to do it
    • Do it with them
    • Give them a handout for it
    • Do it with them again
    • Watch them do it
    • Let them try it themselves
    • Give lots of positive feedback
    • Showcase their accomplishments


Take a step towardssomething technologicallynew…

  • Technology Fair 101
    • I don’t have time for technology – I have to teach the curriculum
    • I am terrified of being in the lab by myself – I need you to walk me through this whole process
    • I know how to sign up for the lab. You drive the first lesson and then give me the wheel.
    • Meet with me after school to brain storm some ideas and set up the activity.
    • Just give me the map.
    • We’ll let you know when we are done.


Educate yourself and value that learning as much as you value yourstudents’ learning

School districts that engage the community, key stakeholders, and system leaders with a compelling vision and clear expectations for technology in schools are essential to building system capacity for technology (Lemke & Coughlin, 1998, 24). Aligning every level of the system from legislative policy to classroom practice provides a solution for effective technology integration.

Educate yourself and value that learning as much as you value yourstudents’ learning

  • Will the common core state standards keep local teachers from deciding what or how to teach?
  • No. The Common Core State Standards are a clear set of shared goals and expectations for what knowledge and skills will help our students succeed. Local teachers, principals, superintendents and others will decide how the standards are to be met. Teachers will continue to devise lesson plans and tailor instruction to the individual needs of the students in their classrooms. Local teachers, principals, superintendents, and school boards will continue to make decisions about curriculum and how their school systems are operated.

Matching Core Curriculum with Technology Integration

Strategy 1: Frequently assess students’ learning of the AKS and give specific feedback to students and parents.

Evidence of effective use of strategy: The teacher regularly assesses student progress toward the AKS in order to determine next steps for instruction. The teacher frequently communicates students’ progress to students and parents and provides specific strategies for improvement. A variety of valid and effective assessments are used. Students monitor their own progress in learning the AKS. AKS = Common Core Standards

Strategy 13: Use technology effectively to plan, teach, and assess.

Evidence of effective use of strategy: The teacher uses disaggregated data and resources produced by technology tools (StART, benchmarking, AKS-CQI tools, AKS databases) for planning instruction. Teachers and students use technology tools for effective content-based teaching and learning. Students rely on technology tools to access content and produce their work.

This activity was about latitude and longitude which we are studying in Social Studies right now. Latitude lines measure the distance from the Equator and run north and south. Longitude lines measure the distance from the Prime Meridian and run East and West. I enjoyed finding the character Hannah on the map. Can you tell what location I am pointing to?

Field Research has showed using images and making connections helps people remember more. The great thinkers, including DaVinci and Montessori, always drew images and arrows and lines in their notes. (Tony Buzan on Mind Mapping)

Current Considerations: Online Forms and Tools and FERPA

  • Protect your student data. MAKE SURE that data is being kept securely, and maintain documentation to that effect. How do you know data is being kept securely? Are you deleting information from the collection source periodically (e.g. every 24 hours) to prevent unexpected breaches of data?
  • Confirm data collection with parents. In many schools, the students are the "carriers" of the online registration information, and may try to enter the information themselves. I highly suggest a confirming email sent to the parents to notify them that their child's data was entered, and to contact the school if this was done erroneously.
  • Know the laws! Both FERPA and HIPAA federal laws require us to protect student and students' family data. Clinic information or IEP information also falls into HIPAA guidelines, which are incredibly important to maintain within your school. [FERPA summary here] [HIPAA summary here]
  • Talk to your colleagues, but make local school decisions. Every school must make the decisions to collect any data like this on their own. IMD is not endorsing any specific solution, but we rely on you, the local schools, to make effective business decisions regarding your school communities. Just because another TST or LSTC or Media Specialist set up a survey site to collect this information DOES NOT give you permission to do so. Your administration must be informed and involved in such decisions that impact the larger school community.

Looking into the Future: 6 Technologies That Will Change Education

  • Near-Term Technologies ( 1 year or less) - Cloud Computing and Mobile Devices
  • Mid Term Technologies ( 2 – 3 years)- game-based learning and open resources
  • Longer-Term Technologies ( 4 -5 years) – learning analytics and personal learning environments.
