2 Welcome to Student Driven Technology Presenter: Amy Poland
If you have a device with you today, please open the following 2 tabs:

3 LEARNING TARGETS: I can identify reasons to incorporate technology into my classroom. I can create a list of technologies that will be useful to my students. I can collaborate and organize my individually chosen technologies into “Purpose Categories”. I can develop a “Game Plan” for implementation within my classroom.

4 Why incorporate technology into my classroom?
ANY GIVEN PROBLEM “We, as teachers, are preparing students for careers that don’t exist and haven’t even been thought of yet.” -Karl Fisch As a result, students need to become; 1. intelligent problem solvers 2. responsible, socially aware citizens who are prepared to live and succeed in the world.

5 It’s their future . . . if we aren’t teaching it, we aren’t truly preparing our students.

6 How is it really helping? “I’m using PowerPoint, isn’t that enough?”
Teacher Driven Technology Benefits: passive learners, quieter, easier to maintain control, guide instruction towards teacher chosen goals Negatives: passive learners, usually lacks intrinsic motivation Student Driven Technology Benefits: built-in motivation, collaboration, teaching by “pull” not “push”, problem solving, access at home Negatives: noisier, requires more teacher prep

7 Explaining Web 1.0 / 2.0 / 3.0 (Descriptions paraphrased from Wikipedia)
First stage of the World Wide Web Links WebPages with hyperlinks One-way flow of information Static pages Web 2.0 Second stage of the World Wide Web Participatory information sharing Allows for Collaboration Ex. Social networking, blogs, wikis, YouTube Web 3.0 The “Sematic Web”: Content generated by computers not by humans Future of the World Wide Web Virtual blending of online and offline worlds Increases in computer intelligence Remembering personal “likes” and “dislikes”
