Transcript of Why? Presentation

My Plan: I believe that using some sort of media technology will play an important role in my future elementary classroom. Kids are beginning to use some form of technology early in their lives. They enjoy using their parents iPhone or tablet so why not integrate this into your classroom so they learn?

Centers: I would like my future classroom to have access to computers, laptops, or even iPads/tablets. These could be used in any type of center in my classroom. They would help my children develop a deeper understanding of a subject and let them have options of using different mediums other than a paper book or paper.
Reading Time: My students would be able to rotate in groups using a Kindle or any other type of tablet technology to read a particular book. They can highlight, have it read aloud to them, or bookmark their page.
Free Time: They could use a computer or tablet to read, play interactive math games, watch videos about volcanoes, etc. The Research: Questions: What do the researchers say?
Why should we use new media in the classroom?
How do we use media in an early elementary classroom? Examples of Projects: Even though most of the projects we did in class seemed difficult for even college students to understand, I believe if you modeled and adjusted a few of them then you can use them appropriately in an elementary classroom. Some of the projects I can use in my classroom, with some adjustments, would be:

Prezi Shifted Motivations? I have always believed that technology and new media would be integrated into my elementary classroom curriculum.
It's important to me to differentiate my classroom to fit the needs of the students and if that includes working on a computer, laptop, iPad or tablet then I will make it happen.
I want my students to enjoy learning and be able to learn effectively.
I am motivated to become a flexible, effective, and knowledgeable elementary teacher who has plenty of tricks up her sleeves to help her students learn, like using technology or media in a lesson.
After this class I am more motivated to use a different collection of sources in my future elementary classroom. Reflection: After this class I have realized that there are plenty of new media and creative technologies that you can use in your classroom or use in every day circumstances. I really enjoyed this class and all of the projects and activities we participated in. I will definitely be using a few of these projects in my future classroom. Technology can be used in highly effective ways in the classroom and can help a child with literacy, their fluency, comprehension and other curriculum standards. When modeled properly, any child can learn from these new ideas using media and technology. I believe that when necessary, you can integrate media and technology into any subject area and I plan to do that in my own classroom. Created by: Elizabeth Striblen Why? Raz-Kids: This is an online reading tool for students. I have seen it used in a 3rd grade classroom and they loved it! It was very interactive and had the students read aloud, read silently, record themselves read, and take small quizzes. Also, the teacher can log onto the website and view each child's progress. This is a type of media technology that can enhance literacy and is easy to use. I would adjust this idea and use it in a group project. The groups could explain a topic, idea, or story like we did in class describing our picture books. I believe the students would enjoy creating their own "comic strip" and being able to use it to learn in the classroom as an alternate to a boring presentation. This was one of my favorite projects in our class. I feel like this could easily fit into an elementary classroom curriculum. The children could use it to retell a story or can use it to create their own story and share their knowledge of a subject using the many different pre-made illustrations. Using a tablet to read a story on Storybird. Learning vocabulary terms on an iPad. " Strong preliminary evidence shows that inquiry-based and curriculum-driven media literacy education is on the right track in terms of providing students with critical and higher-order thinking skills, applied to the analysis and creation of a variety of media forms. In other words, yes, it does work." (195)

"In a series of very important results, the study found that student performance was best when media were used almost daily; media literacy instruction was integrated across multiple subjects areas; teachers made explicit connections with core subject areas; students engaged in both analysis and production; and activities were developed by the teachers, themselves, and customized for the needs of their own courses and students..." (197)

There are many reasons to use media literacy in the classroom on page 205 in The Teachers Guide to Media Literacy textbook. The research proves that with proper integration and explicit instruction of media literacy it can be used successfully in the classroom. http://isuphoto.smugmug.com/Other/Media-Services/Ipad-Total-Sugar-Grove/i-8gDzRWV/0/L/11_30_11_total_ipad_sugar_grove-0995-L.jpg http://currikiblog.files.wordpress.com/2012/10/south-korea-ditching-textbooks-for-tablet-pcs-4c80sjd-x-large.jpg http://artsedge.kennedy-center.org/educators/how-to/tipsheets/~/media/ArtsEdge/Images/Articles/Educators/how-tos/tipsheets/kindergarten.jpg?as=1&dmc=0&w=610 http://extras.mnginteractive.com/live/media/site21/2013/0123/20130123__24dcastew_400.jpg raz-kids.com pixton.com storybird.com http://4.bp.blogspot.com/-OyA8kHNjEdk/TzhcfbPu6eI/AAAAAAAACmk/jDFdhyDGNBY/s320/storybird+1.png Scheibe, C.
