Transcript of Copy of Teacher Centered to Student Centered Learning

Teacher Centered to Student Centered Learning
with Technology Integration

Teacher Centered Lessons
Focus is on the teacher
Students are passive learners
Focus is on memorization of facts, formula, dates etc...
Students are expected to recall information for an assessment

Student Centered Learning
Students address real world problems
Students collect information and data
Students organize and manipulate data
Students formulate answers
Why is Student Centered Learning better?
It connects student learning to the real world
Students reshape and transform information resulting in understanding
Students puzzle over information
Students work with others to evaluate their knowledge
Student-centered learning environment using technology to enhance student learning
Technology should be a tool to learning with content
Lessons integrate technology with content
The computer helps solve problems - not deliver content
Student motivation and participation increase when students use a computer to solve a problem
Open Ended Learning Environments
Inquiry Based Learning
Problem Based Learning
Project Based Learning
Inquiry Based Learning
A problem is the central focus
Starts with a question
Students engage in problem solving activities
Teacher acts as facilitator and provides information
Problem Based Learning
Encourages the development of understanding and skills through exploration and experimentation
Teacher acts as facilitator, but does not provide information
Students find the information to solve the problem
Project Based Learning
Students focus on a problem
The problem is structured with a desired outcome projected
Teacher role is one of coach who gives feedback and guidance
the job gets done more efficiently
it makes the work easier
it makes the work more accurate
National Education Technology Standards
Teacher - uses the computer as a tool, is technologically competent, is designer, facilitator and classroom manager
Student - is researcher, active learner and technologically competent
Lesson - is student centered, problem based and authentic
Computer - is not the object of study, but a learning tool and an integral part of learning
Standards - curriculum based
Examining local voting behaviors
Tracking global warming trends

The activity is student centered, problem based and authentic.

Student access to computers
Time and effort needed to develop lessons
Students buy in to the process
Teachers buy in to doing something different
Ideally every student would have a computer, but this model works with as little as 4 to 6 computers in the room and students working in groups.
It does take time to develop the lessons, but once developed and used the first time it will take less time from that point on.
Students are more engaged in authentic problem solving thus less reluctant.
Teachers should work in professional learning communities to share ideas and encourage one another thus decreasing isolation, workload and reluctance.
