A Vision for the Role of Educational Technology Throughout the Near North District School Board 2010-2015: Next is NOW!
Transcript of A Vision for the Role of Educational Technology Throughout the Near North District School Board 2010-2015: Next is NOW!
*Jane McGonigal, 2010 What do the classrooms our students inhabit look like? 1. Traditional Classrooms teacher directed
emphasis on pencil and paper tasks
no use of digital media 2. Transitional Classrooms shared learning experiences
teacher as guide
marginal use of digital media 3. Web 1.0 Classrooms shared learning experiences
teacher as guide
moderate use of Web 1.0 tools 4. Web 2.0 Classrooms use of IWBs
1:1 computing environments
increased student engagement, achievement & socially responsible shared learning
differentiated instruction through use of assistive technologies
Web 2.0 tools & media- rich content embedded throughout the curriculum Young Canadians in a Wired World, Phase 2, 2005 What technologies are our students "wearing" to school? * *All schools in the NNDSB have broadband and wireless connectivity Smartphones iPad/Touches Netbooks ...and REMEMBER, in 7 years there will be 7 trillion connected devices! 5 key tends will emerge in educational technology over the next 5 years Key Trends* *2010 Horizon Report:
K-12 Edition 6 technologies will emerge over the next 5 years 0-12 months out... Cloud Computing Google/Microsoft Docs
Collaborative Environments Adobe Buzzword/Google Docs
Wikipedia/Kaltura/Glogster 2 to 3 years out... Game-Based Learning single player drill--Reader Rabbit
MMOs/Global Kids Gaming Initiative
ARGs/Alternate Reality Games/World Without Oil
3 billion hours per year are spent on online gaming, creating a generation of epic, problem-solving virtuosos Mobile Devices proliferation of cellular/wi-fi devices-smartphones,tablets, netbooks
Social Networks-Facebook/ Limbo/Twitter/Whrrl
4-5 years out... Augmented Reality Experiences The blending of (augmenting) virtual data — information, rich media, and even live action — with what we see in the real world.
iTactus Project--bringing historical augmentation of real-world locations
SREngine--using AR to display information about everyday things
Zooburst--an authoring tool that allows students to create their own augmented reality storybooks. Flexible Displays Flexible screen technology allows displays to be literally printed onto plastic, along with the batteries that power them, enabling the sorts of live motion displays previously only hinted about in the world of Harry Potter.
When the technology is developed fully it will enable integrated interactive display devices that combine input and output in a single interface And why is this important? 1.Technology is increasingly a means for empowering students, a method for communication and socializing, and a ubiquitous, transparent part of their lives. 2. Technology continues to profoundly affect the way we work, collaborate, communicate, and succeed. 3. The perceived value of innovation and creativity is increasing. Innovation is valued at the highest levels of business and must be embraced in schools if students are to succeed beyond their formal education. 4. There is increasing interest in just-in-time, alternate, or non-formal avenues of education, such as online learning, mentoring, and independent study. 5. The way we think of learning environments is changing. Teacher as "authenticator" * 94% of young people say they go online from home
* 23% of students have their own cell phone
* 51% of Grade 11 students access the Internet from their own personal computers
* 28% of Grade 4 students use IM
* 86% of Grade 11 students use IM
* 89% of Grade 4 students are online gamers
* 14% of Grade 4 students blog
2010 Horizon Report: K-12 Edition What If?: Technology in the 21st Century Classroom *Jane McGonigal, 2010 We KNOW where our LEARNERS are going to be 3-5 years down the road! (vis-a-vie emergent technologies) What can WE do to ENSURE that we travel this EXCITING educational PATHWAY with our LEARNERS? KEWL! articulate a clear vision of the learner and the learning process in the 21st century and a clear vision of effective teaching practice in the digital age.*
develop a comprehensive set of guidlines for embedding emerging technologies across the curriculum
Key Players Board-level Personel School Administrators once a vision of embeded emerging technologies and 21st century learning environments has been articulated, school-based administrators can push forward that vision at the local-school level
we can support school-based administrators in the embedding of that vision in the following documents: SIP, ALP, TPA, & LRPs Teachers *What If?: Technology in the 21st Century Classroom we can support teachers in the process of program revitalization; a revitalization that embeds technology throughout the curriculum, impacting both methodology and expectations
we can support teachers in the shift to a wireless learning environment that moves us from desktop to mobile devices, leveraging what is already available in the world of information and communications technology where lateral learning thrives and social networking is a force for democratic change.* We KNOW where our TEACHERS (vis-a-vie emergent technologies) are now, but what about 3-5 years down the road? Teachers are moving away from static, passive Web 1.0 tools and passe and migrating in droves to the democratic, collaborative, contributive, "learn anywhere, anytime" world of Social Media! The Ministry of Education is DOING IT! Their Partners are DOING IT! Our Teacher Pre-service Institutions are DOING IT! Content Providers are DOING IT! Shouldn't We be DOING IT, TOO? ...AND they're bringing their technology to US! Teachers no longer want to SEARCH for Professional Development.... ...they want Professional Development
to find THEM!
