Blogging in WISD
Transcript of Blogging in WISD
Sharing “Our students have changed radically. Today’s students are no longer the people our educational system was designed to teach." M. Prensky (2001)
K through college - the first generation to grow up with new technology
Entire lives surrounded by and using computers, videogames, digital music players, video cams, cell phones, and other toys and tools of the digital age
Average college grad has spent less than 5,000 hours of life reading
Spent 10,000 hours playing video games (not to mention 20,000 hours watching TV)
Computer games, email, the Internet, cell phones and instant messaging are integral parts of their lives Our Learners' Changing Brains "Digital Natives are used to
receiving information really
fast. They prefer their graphics
before their text rather than the
opposite. They prefer random
access (like hypertext). They
function best when networked.
They thrive on instant gratification
and frequent rewards." -M. Prensky Engage your learners with Web 2.0 Why Web 2.0? It’s social and interactive.
It's cost effective.
It’s about making connections.
It’s simple…but there’s help.
It can help make teaching and assessing more effective.
It’s a part of your students’ world.
It’s user-centered. But... Technology doesn’t solve problems or make teachers better
Don’t throw out your curriculum
Face-to-face is essential
You don't have to rush
You don't have to do it all at once Blogs in Plain English Student Blogging Every student can articulate his/her thoughts with nearly limitless resources.
Students can revise their previous work, expand on thoughts and explore multiple paths.
Students can view and react to the work of their classmates.
Tracking progress and engaging students in meaningful dialogue is incredibly easy.
Reflection becomes natural within a couple of weeks. Students take pride in their blogs.
A wide audience could interact with the ideas presented by the students.
Blogging is more than journaling. It’s dynamic. Authentic connections with the curriculum can be made. http://www.polleverywhere.com/multiple_choice_polls/MTkzNjM1Nw How? Choose the source
