  1. Teams and Technology: Teaming Up for Success Robert E. Slavin Johns Hopkins University

  2. That’s one small step for a man, one giant leap for mankind! - Neil Armstrong - But when will education adopt the spirit that put Neil Armstrong on the moon? Video/Audio of the moon landing

  3. Why We Need New Classroom Models • (picture of bored kids) • Kids are still bored. • Kids are still passive. • Kids are not using their full learning capacity.

  4. Technology to the Rescue…or Not • (Picture of robot cowboy on horse?) • Offers possibilities for… • project-based learning, • access to knowledge, • individualization, and • immediate feedback. • But the integration of technology with teaching has been lacking.

  5. Why has computer-assisted instruction (CAI) had a limited impact on learning? • (Picture of robot on surfboard-wipeout?) • CAI has been down the hall or at the back of the class. • CAI has rarely been central to teaching.

  6. Welcoming Technology to Class • Interactive whiteboards • Computers with projectors • Electronic response devices • Tablets, iPads • Universal access to laptops (Picture of teacher with whiteboard)

  7. Classroom-Embedded Technology— • assists teachers (rather than replacing them), • uses prepared flipcharts with embedded instructional tools, • creates dynamite presentations, • links to information anywhere, • provides assessment, and • offers immediate feedback. (Picture of kid with whiteboard)

  8. Embedded Multimedia • Brief vignettes to illustrate lessons • Power of stories, narrative • Power of characters • Humor (Picture of kids in team, laughing)

  9. What Classroom-Embedded Technology Can’t Do Well (yet) • Cooperative learning (picture of a team working)

  10. INSTRUCTION CELEBRATION PARTNER/ TEAM PRACTICE ASSESSMENT Striking a Balance To get the most out of technology, we must partner it with a classroom system that we know works!

  11. How Teams and Technology Can Team Up in the Learning Cycle • Presentation – teacher + technology • Initial feedback – teacher + technology • Team practice – students + teams • Formal assessment – teacher + technology • Feedback – teacher + technology

  12. Egyptian Math • (simulation – Egyptian Math)

  13. Debriefing • How did your team help you learn? • How did the use of video and phone responses help engage you in the learning process? • How does the teacher’s role change when this model of cooperative learning is used?

  14. How Technology Can Help Cooperative Learning: Modeling • Example from writing process (first video with Mona & Ricardo)

  15. Teams and Technology in Math • Shirleylock– parallel lines • Mona and Flash – fractions

  16. Teams and Technology in Beginning Reading • Sound and the Furry - Stick

  17. Teams and Technology in Upper-Elementary Reading • Tip Topper backgrounder – Charlotte’s Web

  18. When Every Child Has Technology at Home • Interactive homework, games • Self-paced individualized work • fills gaps • extends forward • Book clubs

  19. Making the Most of Trailing Edge Technology • Current technologies can be used in a revolutionary way. • Better technologies are coming. • Ubiquitous access (home and school) is the next frontier.

  20. R&D Needed • There’s lots of work to do. • But let’s do it!
