14 Changing Teaching and Learning in the 21 st Century Classroom What Internet2 Offers:  Real Time Collaboration  Immediate Access to Expertise and/or Audiences  Geographical Distribution  High Quality, Real-Time Audio and Video Interaction => Engagement

15 Implications for Teaching and Learning “Internet2 advanced applications are helping instructors develop new teaching techniques, enhancing the learning experience for students, and extending universities beyond their geographical boundaries. By bringing together learning communities and removing barriers to information retrieval and learning resources— Internet2 applications are changing the way we learn and teach.”

16 Types of Applications? Videoconferencing –Class Collaborations –International Collaborations –Access to Experts –Content Providers/Virtual Field Trips Digital Library Resources Remote Instrumentation Simulations

17 Class-to-Class Collaborations Flexibility – the event can be tailored to exact curricular needs. Authentic Learning - Student to student interactions can be very powerful. Engagement - The technology is especially engaging for visual and auditory learners. Virtual Reading Group Descent into the Underworld Create your own I2 adventure…

18 International Collaborations Language: They provide real-world contexts for second language practice. Exchange: Events promote cultural empathy, understanding and exchange. Preparation: International encounters help prepare students for a global society. Language & Culture Exchange bring the world to your students… Penn Literacy-Dublin Project Click for Megaconference Jr Video

19 Access to Experts Make complex concepts accessible: Students can explore complex concepts with experts. Beyond theory: Experts provide real world connections for theory. Voice of Authority: Students hear directly from the “experts” Virtual Surgery anytime, anywhere… Pasteur Institute & Lafayette College Lenni Basso/Group Motion Collaboration

20 Connecting to Expertise: TIES, Rhode Island Hospital, RINET, 12 Rhode Island Schools and 2 Minnesota schools “It was amazing. It makes me want to work on a surgical team.” Amy K; Cambridge, MN virtual surgeries for K12

21 Interactive “Meet the Author” Videoconference Events 1 Hour, 15 Minutes In Length Series Targets a Variety of Grade Levels Partnerships with other Universities and Publishing Companies Click for Kathe Koja Videoconference Clip

22 Content Providers Budget Field Trips: Allows students to “travel” to other areas at minimum or no cost. Immersion: Videoconferencing can bring “Living History” events into the classroom and “immerse” students. Curriculum Supplements: Virtual field trips or distance learning events are great curricular supplements. Differentiated Instruction: Distance learning supports differentiated instruction. travel virtually…
