9 How we work

10 "Knowing content" is not sufficient in itself -- rather, students must apply knowledge to: construct new understandings, solve problems make decisions develop products and communicate Technology can facilitate this type of learning

11 Teacher directed, memory- focused instruction Student-centered, performance- focused learning Isolated work on invented exercises Collaborative work on authentic, real-work projects Factual, literal thinking for competence Creative thinking for innovation and original solutions Transforming Learning Environments Traditional EnvironmentsEmerging Learning Landscape

12 Pedagogical Foundations Curriculum must drive the need for technology integration Technology is simply the tool used to facilitate student-centered learning Technology makes it easier to accomplish Taxonomy of Technology Use 1 Experiencing Informing Reinforcing Integrating Utilizing 1 Thomas and Boysen, Iowa State University, 1984

13 National Educational Technology Standards for Students 1.Creativity and Innovation 2.Communication & Collaboration 3.Research & Information Fluency 4.Critical Thinking, Problem- Solving, & Decision-Making 5.Digital Citizenship 6.Technology Operations and Concepts

14 Communication and Collaboration Students use digital media and environments to communicate and work collaboratively, including at a distance, to support individual learning and contribute to the learning of others. Students: interact, collaborate, and publish with peers, experts or others employing a variety of digital environments and media. communicate information and ideas effectively to multiple audiences using a variety of media and formats. develop cultural understanding and global awareness by engaging with learners of other cultures. contribute to project teams to produce original works or solve problems. What students should know and be able to do to learn effectively and live productively in an increasingly digital world... ISTE: NETS-S:
