1 Yksityinen kielitoimisto Technology Center Hermia Tampere Finland SITE 2008 Las Vegas, Nevada 3.−

2 Yksityinen kielitoimisto Technology Center Hermia Tampere Finland SITE = Society for Information Technology & Teacher Education -19th International Conference - presenters from 65 countries - March 3–7, Riviera Convention Center, Las Vegas, Nevada

3 Yksityinen kielitoimisto Technology Center Hermia Tampere Finland Blanche O’Bannon, The University of Tennessee Web 2.0 Tools - Support constructivist strategies - Ever-increasing collection of tools that publish, manage information and share content - Open-source software solutions - Include blogs, podcasts and wikis

4 Yksityinen kielitoimisto Technology Center Hermia Tampere Finland Using Wikis for Collaboration in Creating a Collection - 92 pre-service teachers - Benefits: collaborating with peers, resource collection, the ease of use, 24/7 accessibility - Problems: the loose structure of the assignment, the instructions were ambigious - Would change: clearer instructions, a structured timeline - Careful attention should be given during the instructional period to make sure that all students are comfortable with the software.

5 Yksityinen kielitoimisto Technology Center Hermia Tampere Finland The Growth, Death and Rebirth of the Wiki David A Slykhuis & Barbara S. Stern, James Madison University - 45 pre-service teachers, over 100 lesson plans, downloads - Shared resources, critical mass - To improve: upload different file types - Was spammed to death and rebuilt - Students are using the wiki and it is continuing to grow

6 Yksityinen kielitoimisto Technology Center Hermia Tampere Finland Wiki as a professional development tool Brian Foley & Tae Chang, Cal State Northridge - Benefits: collaboration, rich and open database - Problems: motivation, lack of discussion - Specialist are not willing to edit colleague’s texts - Knowledge database that goes beyond the class - A more authentic wikipedia

7 Yksityinen kielitoimisto Technology Center Hermia Tampere Finland Utilizing wiki to construct knowledge Michael Blocher, Northern Arizona University - Collaborative writing process - Team edited paper - Roles: lead editor, author outline, first draft), designer - Peer evaluation - Team evaluation report - Learning communities

8 Yksityinen kielitoimisto Technology Center Hermia Tampere Finland Dr. Ronald McBride Northwestern State University of Lousiana When Online Learning is Truly Online Should online programs be designed to include blended instruction as some research suggest? What resulted from a true online design without blended instruction?

9 Results It raised the quality of all support services to students, faculty and staff on campus. It provided electronic access to the University libraries for faculty to the desktop. It provided a Web-based system for faculty to enter grades, attendance and access to student records. It reduced the time on task for advising, laboratory work, assisting students with portfolios, and support services requiring faculty time because they were not previously automated. There is no definitive evidence of improved quality of instruction and better performance by students using blended instruction.

12 Yksityinen kielitoimisto Technology Center Hermia Tampere Finland Wikis – student identified advantages (n = 46) Facilitated “virtual” group work - increased communication, access and flexibility (17 comments) Good organizational tool for synthesizing ideas and group reflection (10 comments) Public nature of the summary - easy for everyone to view and make responses (9 comments ) Wikis – student identified disadvantages No disadvantages (17 comments) Group communication and motivation issues (7 comments) Technical issues (5 comments)

13 Yksityinen kielitoimisto Technology Center Hermia Tampere Finland Punya Mishra, Michigan State University Thinking Creatively: Teachers as Designers of Technology, Pedagogy and Content Technology Content Pedagogy

14 Yksityinen kielitoimisto Technology Center Hermia Tampere Finland There are no walls between content, pedagogy and technology, if we are ready to play with knowledge. Wicked problems need creative solutions. Teaching with technology has been called a wicked problem, because they defy standard problem solving approaches. Pedagogy + content + technology = mashups

15 Yksityinen kielitoimisto Technology Center Hermia Tampere Finland Our students have CHANGED RADICALLY - educational system is not up-to-date Teaching & Learning 2.0 is architecture of participation: - Wikis - Blogs - Podcasts - Google Earth - Social photo sharing and bookmarking -Virtual group work, public nature of outcomes, building on others work Building more powerful ways to cooperate, communicate, and collaborate
