Introductions Helpful to know who we have in the room PLN (Personal Learning Network) – Both human (the folks taking this class with us) – And online Name District and School Position Computer competency (high, medium, low) What are you looking for? – Yes…cheap 3 hours, pay raise, renew license – But why a technology class?
Does the internet keep you active or make you more productive? With this class, perhaps it will do both!
http://www.cradtke.pbworks.com (click on ED 584 C: The Power of the Internet in the Classroom) The website at the top of this page has all the class information you will need. The class is broken down along with other links for you to check out. Never hesitate to ask questions or slow me down as class progresses!
The Schedule Start at 8:30 (I will be here and available for any help you need starting at 8:00) We will have a brief 15 minute break before lunch (and one after…unless we work through it in exchange for an earlier departure) Lunch 12:00 – 1:00 My intention is to provide enough class time and work time so you will not need time outside of class to complete any assignments (except to experiment between classes!)
Life Before the Computer (Mindsets)Mindsets Memory was something you lost with age An application was for employment A program was a TV show A cursor used profanity A keyboard was a piano A web was a spider’s home A virus was the flu A CD was a bank account A hard drive was a long road trip A mouse pad is where a mouse lived
You will be registering at MANY websites…be sure to either remember or write down usernames and passwords! Begin to consider computer/internet applications that you can bring into your classroom from this class – You will create accounts to store websites for future reference – You may want to bring a jump drive/flash drive to class to save work or transport photos or documents from home or school to this class – Your grade will be based on the completion of those types of exercises and online discussions you will respond to
Grading Using a wiki created in PBWorks, students will participate in online discussions – These usually involve a brief post of your own along with a brief comment on someone else’s post Students will create a variety of different projects and present one of them (below) to the class – A Wordle – An Animoto – A Glog – Webquest Evaluations
Two New Accounts to be Created (gmail and Diigo) Click on the link below if you do not have a gmail account (if you have one, you can just use that) – Gmail account sign up: You will use this account for all registrations you are creating for this course…and it will greatly simplify the process of remembering Gmail account sign up Click on this link (Diigo) to create an accountthis link (Diigo) – Diigo allows you to keep all your bookmarks (favorites) online and NOT on your computer – You can log in to your account from any computer to see what websites you have kept – Once you create your account, we will install the Diigolet tool
