Oh, The Places You’ll Go Taking students places you never thought you could By Mike Bayba, Erie 2- Chautauqua-Cattaraugus BOCES
Agenda Introduction Teaching via DL Electronic Field Trips Special programming opportunities Creative uses of Interactive Video Co-teaching/mentoring Locating videoconferencing opportunities
Distance Learning – what is it and what can you do with it? What is Distance Learning? –Online Learning – Asynchronous Learning ANY TIME ANY WHERE learning –Interactive Video – Synchronous Learning REAL TIME FACE TO FACE learning Distance Learning Classroom Portable Videoconferencing devices –Blended learning – a combination of both
BOCES Role – We focus on Interactive Video Recruiting – Mike Bayba and district staff Training – Mike, Brian Straight and Chris Mason Technical Support – Brian, Chris and Mike Material Support – Melissa Wilson, Rose Snyder Administrative Support – Barb Siemaszko and Mike, and district staff Scheduling – Rose, Chris, Mike and Brian
Teaching via Distance Learning What does that mean? –Connecting to other schools to teach your course to your students as well as students from other districts –Meeting new students, administrators, guidance counselors and aides –Challenging yourself to teach on television (could mean a wardrobe upgrade!!!) –If you are interested, see Robin Kayner
Buffalo Zoo The Paley Center for Media (formerly the Museum of TV and Radio) The Farmers’ Museum NASA Philadelphia Museum of Art COSI (Center of Science and Industry) Baseball Hall of Fame… and many others Electronic Field Trips: Where can Videoconferencing take you?
Special Events Programming Past presentations: Milkweed author Jerry Spinelli Lois Lowery, Number the Stars author Future possibilities: Gail Jarrow, author of Robert H. Jackson biography Jonathan Mooney presentation from Chautauqua Lake Career Awareness workshops from Genesee CC
College Collaborations The Michelangelo Project Pre-service Teacher students being able to observe a REAL classroom live, then debriefing with the REAL Teacher about the lesson and all the accompanying stuff that happens every day in the REAL classroom. You can be a part of training a new generation of classroom teachers!
Creative ways to use your Polycom Prospective employee interviews Teacher support meetings (i.e.inter-district department mtgs.) Legislative/Lobbyist meetings (Chautauqua Co. School Boards) College Collaboration (Michelangelo Project, ask the expert, student teacher observations)
Creative ways to use your Polycom Satellite Teleconference downlinks (i.e. SED, Colonial Williamsburg) Guest Speakers/Performers Electronic Field Trips (NASA, Ward Melville Heritage Organization) Classroom to Classroom collaborations
Taylor J. Putney Reactive Teaching Proactive Teaching
Technology SMARTBoard Polycom
Skepticism Square Peg…Round Hole? Are we doing this just to do it?
Two Main Uses 1) Field Trips 2) Collaboration
Field Trips Buffalo Zoo
Field Trips Metropolitan Museum of Art
Collaboration Observation of Falconer and Panama –Who teaches what? –Who benefits? Students Teachers –How does the learning gap shrink? In an interesting way…
Moving Forward Collaborations with –Falconer –Panama
How do I find these things? Your district should work with your BOCES DL COORDINATOR to coordinate dates/times and funding ogram.php ogram.php vider_programs.aspx vider_programs.aspx
