--Logic What Technology are we purchasing? Labpro Verniers Adobe Premier non-linear editing software Canon cameras shotgun microphones Blogging--This is not the high school English class you remember, but really, what do you remember about your high school English class? --Your kids already have technology--you may have bought it for them-- let's look at how they use it! ISTE (International Society for
Technology in Education) NETS
and Vermont Framework : Creativity and Innovation Digital Citizenship Research Information Critical Thinking Technology Operations Communication and Collaboration Blogs create tangible memories for students. Multiple Intelligences:
3. Logical, Mathematical
4. Existential
6.Bodily Kinesthetic
9. Spacial Constructivism: Let's consider what they already know COST: only without training will this money go to waste. How People Learn: Active and participatory
learning makes for a
more effective class environment. Let's consider who they are lap-tops or tablets for each child Recognition that the process of learning is as important as the learning itself. Curriculum 21 Collective Intelligence Ask Students to contribute to a collective body of knowledge through technology. Let's encourage them to use their technology in a meaningful way. References: Why Technology? Replacing the Compulsion Build Unity
Create Community We need to "shake things up"! Technology is a way to do that. We want our children active, engaged and participating! Training: Yes, it's substantial. . . but, All teachers will be trained in laptop, camera, and editing use. English, History, Science, Humanities and Math teachers will be taking courses on using blogs, wiki sites, networking sites in the classroom. Science Teachers will receive training in the Labpro Vernier use. There's a lot of focus on how they use it
negatively, let's look at a way it's used
positively. These kids want to be heard! These kids want to contribute! Provide them with the opportunity to connect to the academic world through technology. Bransford, J.D., Brown, A.L., & Cocking, R.R. (2000). How people learn: Brain, mind, experience, and

http://www.iste.org/standards Ask students to participate
in the educational world,
on a global scale. Shielding students from their world of technology
would be similar to shielding students from previous
educational trends and might be a loss of
opportunity in education. If we subscribe to different learning
theories, we have no choice but to offer
our students methods that work best for
them. Project Ideas: exercise videos/musical composition/blogs/math games/mapping/on-line speeches, digital photography. . . Youtube videos: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uhiCFdWeQf A http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Udwzynwb5K Ferris Bueller's Day off Vermont Academy's Gay

with technology; traditional learning will continue. We do intend to enhance their experience and transform them into active, invested learners. We do want to validate and build upon their
prior knowledge, so that they are invested in their education. Thank you for your time! Teachers will be expected to take a course in 21st Century learning, technology integration in the classroom.
