2 Igniting 21st century learning ® ® © One-to-One Institute Welcome! Day 1 PD Planned Agenda 1.Introduction to the BTOP Grant 2.Hopes and Fears Activity 3.Big Picture/Philosophical Ideas 4.Getting Started with One to One Computing 2

3 BTOP Welcome and Introduction Barb Light, EUPISD BTOP Project Director

4 Welcome to BTOP! Introductions: ◦ Name, what you teach ◦ When was the first time you remember using technology in a classroom setting and what did you do?

5 A Federal Grant Program American Recovery and Reinvestment Act funds ($10 billion) National Telecommunications and Information Administration ($4.8 billion of the $10 billion) Broadband Technology Opportunities Program (BTOP) Our category is sustainable broadband adoption: Anywhere, anytime computing

6 How much money do we get? million federal cash award million match ◦ $ 760,000 cash ◦ District match of $50.00/student/year (includes device, tech support, software, community awareness) ◦ $ 515,000 in-kind (district tech personnel time and use of school facilities, for example)

7 What is Broadband? ”Data transmission technology that provides two-way data transmission to and from the Internet with advertised speeds of at least 768 kilobits per second (kbps) downstream and at least 200 kbps upstream to end users.” Source: Connect Michigan Website So basically it’s high speed internet.

8 What are the objectives? Increase broadband adoption ◦ School to home education is one vector ◦ Community awareness is the other vector  Economic development  Educational opportunities  Medical services and information * A3 is NetLingo for anyplace, anytime, anywhere.

9 Why Us? We are an underserved area for broadband Previous educational technology initiatives in this region – WE ARE READY!!! Visionary thinking from the ISD This is NOT Freedom to Learn, but we used the lessons we learned from FTL to write this grant.

10 The Devices!! Dell Latitude 2110 netbooks for all 7-12 grade students ◦ 3 year warranty including accidental breakage ◦ Anti-theft protection ◦ Custom high resolution screen This February/early March, hopefully! For educational and personal use by students Students take the netbooks home, including over the summer

11 To the CLOUD!

12 The cloud is a way to have access to your tech tools and files from ANY internet connected device. The EUPISD cloud will be for all students K – 12 and staff, too. The cloud can, and eventually will, be different for different groups of students. The cloud will be refined over the 3 years of the grant. Right now it is pretty basic, but it will grow. Cloud

13 What do teachers get? Professional development ◦ At least 2 days this year on technology integration and best practice teaching using technology

14 Community Impact Community meetings ◦ Four evening training sessions per district Technicians available to assist with broadband connections in home Four new positions at the ISD ◦ Project director Barb Light ◦ Computer techs Kathy Fountain, Ryan Gazley ◦ Instructional technologist Suzy Belonga

15 Quiz 1. What is broadband? ◦ High speed internet 2. What is the federal purpose of the grant? ◦ To increase broadband subscribership and use 3. What is the difference between a netbook and a laptop? ◦ Netbooks are smaller 4. What is the cloud for BTOP? ◦ A way to access your own individualized internet tools and files from any internet connected device

38 Igniting 21st century learning ® ® © One-to-One Institute Engagement is the key You can deliver the material perfectly, but if you don’t engage the students, you fail as a teacher. One to one computing is a great engager. 38

39 Igniting 21st century learning ® ® © One-to-One Institute How? Differentiate – Moodle, Compass Provide learner control Real world information Current information Activity Organization New tools Color Give everyone a voice 39

40 Igniting 21st century learning ® ® © One-to-One Institute The Power of the Internet in Education A few rhetorical questions: Do you know everything? Can you answer every question every student asks you? Where do you go for information? 40

43 Igniting 21st century learning ® ® © One-to-One Institute A Little Fun, A Little Learning Star Wars Sound of MusicStar WarsSound of Music How would it feel to be the first person to start the dance or to be Princess Leia or Darth Vader? What gender are most of the dancers? Why do you think that is? Describe the thoughts that would go through your mind if you were watching one of these live. What type of person comes up with and plans this kind of stuff? Compare and contrast the two video clips. If you were describing one of these to a blind person, what would you say? Is any of your explanation your opinion rather than fact? 43

44 Igniting 21st century learning ® ® © One-to-One Institute Academic Expectations College Freshman Political Science PortfolioCollege Freshman Political Science Portfolio 8 th Grade Earth Science Wiki8 th Grade Earth Science Wiki College Freshman Business Class ProjectCollege Freshman Business Class Project Excepted from the Michigan Educational Tech Standards: (http://techplan.edzone.net/METS/METS pdf) Every high school student will: 9-12.CI.2. create a web page 9-12.TC.6. participate in a virtual environment as a strategy to build 21st century learning skills 44

45 Igniting 21st century learning ® ® © One-to-One Institute Getting Started with One to One Computing One to one = one netbook to one student Think of the netbook as a tool much like a textbook, pencil, beaker, map, or calculator Focus on teaching the curriculum and embed explanations on how to use the netbook into your teaching of your curriculum 45

46 Igniting 21st century learning TM © One-to-One Institute & Intel Which is better? Today, kids, we are going to learn the basics of how to use Excel spreadsheets. Before we do our lab, we need to spend a day learning Excel. So, open Excel by clicking on… A great tool for keeping track of data for your lab is Excel. Excel is found under the Microsoft Office menu. Have your group use it to set up a data table. If you need help, let me know and I’ll be glad to show you how it works. 46

47 Igniting 21st century learning ® ® © One-to-One Institute What does an OTO classroom look like? Like this room? Can be paperless Can be without textbooks Collaborative and noisy Teacher helping students (more coaching, less large group teaching) Direct instruction is still used, but can be more targeted as in who needs what information

48 Igniting 21st century learning ® ® © One-to-One Institute You have 5 minutes to write a paragraph (on any topic.) Now make a copy your paragraph below the original. Now use a Thesaurus on your computer and replace at least 5 words in your paragraph Is the revised paragraph better than the first? Why or why not? 48

49 Igniting 21st century learning ® ® © One-to-One Institute Where do I start?? How can you encourage students to replace their current tools with technology? –Typing papers –Paperless classroom –Note taking on the computers –Projects Find a great website to use with your students –What makes a website “great” for educational use? Build an activity to use that website –Brainstorm activities 49
