Transcript of 21st Century Teaching: The Vision of the McAlester Public Schools

TECHNOLOGY: A Vision for
McAlester Public Schools

Where are we headed?
"In the future, HOW we educated our children may prove more important than HOW MUCH we educate them."
from The World is Flat by-Thomas Friedman
"If you do things well, dare to do them better. Be daring, be first, be different."
Anita Roddick
Technology
Common Core
Engaged Students
Why?
HOW?
When
Our students are counting on us to prepare them for an unknown and unwritten future.
We need to ENGAGE THEM in the learning process, but how?
We must live our vision of Engaging Minds, Inspiring Hearts, Pursuing Excellence. We want to be leaders in 21st Century Teaching and Learning.
We have a rich history of achievement and a strong tradition of excellence.
But first we must risk fear and failure.
We will do it not because it is easy, but because it is hard.
So...
To prepare students for 21st Century Learning, we will leave behind....
If teachers can only provide:
content facts dates
formulas stories
theories information
Then our role in the lives of students is...
obsolete
Students have access to information on
anything
anytime
anywhere
cell phones
Google
iPods
Blogs
Twitter
Wikipedia
RSS Feeds
Social Networks
YouTube
Virtually limitless information
Whatever
Whenever
Wherever
We are no longer the main source
of information...
We are the filter.
a factory model education
that revolves around
the memorization of discrete
facts...
a fragmented
curriculum
learning in
isolation
and text book approaches to teaching
We will introduce
an education revolution.
We will allow students to unleash their hidden talents.
We will welcome
a global classroom
We will nurture an environment
where learning is active, collaborative,
connected and student centered.
We will welcome a spirit
of innovation and craft
learning opportunities.
We will demonstrate the power
of technology to transform education,
energize students, and inspire CREATIVE
thinking.
We will teach students
how to navigate and sort through
an overload of information.
"Today's education
system faces irrelevance
unless we bridge the gap between how
students live and how they learn." (Learning
for the 21st Century Report)
We will not be deemed irrelevant!
Our classrooms will
allow students to learn content through real world experiences and applications.
We will equip students with
skills to think critically,
apply knowledge, analyze
information, comprehend new
ideas, collaborate, communicate,
solve problems and make decisions.
As teachers and learners, we will apply skills in real
life scenarios, identify what information is needed,
and which digital tools will work best to locate it.
As educators, we all possess the incredible ability to make change...the future of our nation, indeed our world, lies in our hands.
We are willing to accept this mission...
it cannot be post-poned.

Education is changing...
We will change with it!
Technology itself is not the answer.
Technology is only a tool.
The classroom teacher is
more important than ever in
this technological age.
Used correctly it is a game
changer.
Used incorrectly it's
a baby sitter at best.
It is not everything, but technology is
definitely something.
"School is the only place where I'm encouraged to power down, to disengage, and tune out. As long as I don't cause any problems, it seems everyone is happy for me to just sit here."
--Anonymous Student 2011
Did you know...
Wolf RamAlpha will solve any
math problem from the very basic to complex
differential equations...step by step?
Kids know about it. Do you?
How does that change how we teach math?
Students use plagiarism checkers
to make sure their copied work isn't detected by you. Do you use one?
Can we design work that
can't be copied? Is that possible?
Google drive can track changes in a student's document; every copy/paste, every back space and key stroke. Second by second... You can see and comment on their edits.

Any growth requires
a temporary loss of security.
--Madeline Hunter
Some times we have a lot of excuses
for not wanting to learn new
things ourselves, or for not
wanting to change anything
about what we do.
...excuses we'd never accept from
our students.
If we are their examples,
what kind of examples about
learning are we?
What tools will we provide?
