lives of students...
Students can find information
Virtually Limitless Information
We are no longer the
main source of knowledge
We are the filter
How do we teach
students to handle
Sure, they can use
But has anyone shown them how to:
PROBLEM SOLVE with information?
With all of this information available,
Should our delivery of content be focused on
facts and content
Think of the
skills you use
when you ask:
How do I fix my car?
What's the best credit
card deal for me?
What's the fastest route home to avoid traffic?
Should I rent or buy?
Who should I vote for?
flight was just
do I do now?
How can I get my image
out there so companies
will hire me?
What are the newest ideas and innovations I need to keep up with?
Where can I get
What is the most
efficient tool for
Think about what you ask students to do.
When is the last time you had them
And what does Creation mean today?
And what about all the other tech skills?
Where do these fit into Bloom's Taxonomy?
And what about
Where are they learning this?
Where do we expect them to learn about
So what does this mean for the classroom?
How could you gather and discuss data via
How could you talk about reliable sources using
How could students publish and evaluate work using
How could students collaborate using
How could struggling students benefit from
Dynamic Graphic Organizers
It means we need to rethink
the tools we use
and the types of problems
we ask students to solve
How could students be challenged to solve problems online?
Answer the following question using any resources you wish.
You must explain, justify, and evaluate your opinion and resources.
How many grains of sand are on an average beach?
What is the current relationship between India and Pakistan?
You have $1000 to donate toward hunger relief.
Which organization in which country would you give it to?
If you could live anywhere in the world, where would it be?
Use data in your justification.
What are the top rated jobs in your country?
What required skills do these jobs have in common?
If you were trying to lose weight, would you
choose a popularized diet program?
(Atkins, South Beach, Weight Watchers, etc.)
Why or why not?
Find an online presentation program.
Use it to create a 2 minute presentation describing
the pros and cons of the program.
What are the 3 most popular areas of research in physics today?
Read the terms and conditions of YouTube and summarize the key ideas.
What skills could students gain
through this process?
What kinds of discussions could
this create in the classroom?
How could students
Think of the possibilities
But how do we manage
The same way you manage students using
The tools provide temptation,
but they are not the source of
Any lesson you create,
no matter what tools are used...
Has to be
But why does every lesson have to
entertain students with these new toys?
Entertainment is not the same as engagement
How could students in
Create an e-portfolio to store work and reflect on their progress?
Entertainment is passive
Engagement can and should be fun and exciting
Our charge is to provide
Students do not need to be entertained
They need to be engaged.
These tools are no longer about pure entertainment
So where does it start?
1. See what's out there
Find some sites
Try some software
Do some research
2. Start small
What is one thing you
could do in the next unit
to better engage with
21st century skills?
Don't do it all alone.
Plan carefully and ask
what others have
4. Take a risk
conflict. Try it
and see what
And remember the big picture....
The question to ask is...
Entertainment is for enjoyment
Entertainment is short-lived
Entertainment allows escape
Entertainment is using
the creativity of others
is for learning
has long-term results
is solving problems
is using the
creativity of the participant
answer these questions?
