2 Overview of Workshop You will have a worksheet guide to assist you in competing the workshop available here http://www.viu.ca/education/ed_tech/course_sessions/s ci/edpb507_worksheet.doc http://www.viu.ca/education/ed_tech/course_sessions/s ci/edpb507_worksheet.doc Key Topics General overview of technology & good pedagogy Using a publisher’s electronic resources structure and useful resources(teachers/students) Incorporating electronic resources into a micro-lesson You exploring & completing worksheet @ your level & pace— About using technology (pros and cons) Feedback sheet (improve the workshop) Julia Hengstler Faculty of Education Vancouver Island University

3 complete workshop with support- become more familiar with science teaching support materials/tools/strategies incorporate a technology element into your micro- teaching lesson technology element required for e-portfolio technology skills required as professional makes job easier and more interesting desire to learn/do new things Your needs? Julia Hengstler Faculty of Education Vancouver Island University

4 Technological Context “ Today’s young people in their teens and 20s, who have been dubbed “digital natives,” have never known a world without computers, 24- hour TV news, Internet, & cell-phones—with their video, music, cameras & text messaging.” (Small & Vorgan, 2008) Julia Hengstler Faculty of Education Vancouver Island University

5 Just How Wired are Your Students? (Findings of the Canadian Internet Project, 2008) Data from 2007: “Internet use is almost universal among Canada’s youth”

6 More from Canadian Internet Project, 2008 97% of BC youth 12-17 are online Average online time of 12-17 hr/week ~46% have been online for about 6+ years ~56% of 11 yr & younger are online Average online time of 3.5hr/week

7 Teacher Network Model v 1.0

8 Teacher Network Model v 2.0

9 Technology can effectively support optimal teaching & learning when you pick the right tool & use it appropriately. VS Julia Hengstler Faculty of Education Vancouver Island University

10 Yet we also need to stay open to creative & innovative uses of technology. Remember the Internet started as a military scientific research network in the US Julia Hengstler Faculty of Education Vancouver Island University

11 * Technology knowledge & skills “stick” when you need to use them (internal or external motivation) *Technology knowledge & skills stay with you when you use them repeatedly Julia Hengstler Faculty of Education Vancouver Island University Using Technology

12 The Big Picture: Good Instructional Practice & Technology

13 7 Principles of Good Education (Chickering & Gamson, 1987; adapted) Good practice in education: encourages contact between students, families & teachers develops reciprocity & cooperation among students encourages active learning gives prompt feedback emphasizes time on task communicates high expectations respects diverse talents & ways of learning. Julia Hengstler Faculty of Education Vancouver Island University

14 Common Uses of Technology in Teaching Websearching (content, lesson ideas) Virtual Tours Making overheads/Master Sheets Assessment/evaluation, gradebook systems Using publisher materials Online games Ask an Expert WebQuests Tools and resources

15 The Smaller Picture: Electronic Resources from Publishers

16 Publishers & E-Content Virtually all major publishers provide some form of electronic supplements to print materials Market driven Increasingly electronic displacing print materials Publishers with “good” electronic practices Make user-friendly materials Consistent interface, layout, variety of resources for “online” Provide quality materials that help you do a better job  increase student learning Modify or add to existing materials to make them better Desire to have you purchase their line Julia Hengstler Faculty of Education Vancouver Island University

17 Main Publishers (Junior Secondary Science) Science Probe- Nelson BC Science – McGraw Hill

18 Illustrative Example of Technological Support for students & teachers McGraw-Hill’s BC Science 9 access provided by publisher Students- bc9user with password ______________ (grade 8-10 access- change grade level number) Teachers – bc9*_____________ Julia Hengstler Faculty of Education Vancouver Island University

56 Reflecting on Incorporating These Text Resources Now you have seen what electronic resources are available in relation to BC Science 9. At the end of the session, you will be required to identify at least 3 Teacher Corner or Home Version resources and describe how you would use it. Julia Hengstler Faculty of Education Vancouver Island University

57 Considerations when Incorporating Technology Benefits ? Many students want to use technology Good content available Access to experts Flexibility of material presentation/assessment Data used can be most current science Keeps teachers/students/homes in closer contact Helps with collaboration among students—and teachers re. Pro-D Julia Hengstler Faculty of Education Vancouver Island University

58 Challenges of Working with Technology Some challenges—what do you think? Equipment availability/reliability— Student access outside of school Ensure equipment availability sometime during school day whether in class, lunch, etc. Software –cost, availability & installations, reviews, pilots, implementations Sufficient Pro-D & teacher “practice” time Privacy of student/personal data Shallow research—1 st 10 Goggle hits Julia Hengstler Faculty of Education Vancouver Island University

59 Everything you have students do should be educationally purposeful. Technology is an instructional tool: pick it to do a particular job—don’t throw it in as an extraneous add-on or gimmick. = As you think about incorporating technology, remember: Julia Hengstler Faculty of Education Vancouver Island University

60 Worksheet Complete the worksheet provided by the professor Hardcopy (paper ) or download to U drive to edit with answers: http://www.viu.ca/education/ed_tech/course_sessions/sci/edp b507_worksheet.doc http://www.viu.ca/education/ed_tech/course_sessions/sci/edp b507_worksheet.doc Use the remaining workshop time to complete this worksheet Ask for support as you need it Submit paper or document to professor For electronic—email to Bernie: Bernie.Krynowsky@viu.caBernie.Krynowsky@viu.ca Julia Hengstler Faculty of Education Vancouver Island University

61 Activity: Technology Incorporation into Micro Lesson Levels of incorporation: Novice: leveraging materials that parallel “traditional” teaching modes Eg. downloading BLMs, PPTs “as is” or with minimal customization Mid-Range: leveraging resources that extend traditional teaching modes & allow some interaction Eg. online assessments, multimedia, PPTs with some modifications Advanced: leveraging resources for traditional & non- traditional teaching modes modifying e-content to make it your own, developing own e-content, tools, etc. Julia Hengstler Faculty of Education Vancouver Island University
