21st Century Education: A Model for Teaching High-Tech Learners Based on Brain Science, Psychology and Best Educational Practices

(Warning - adding this event to your Shed schedule does not mean that you are enrolled)

Larry Rosen

In this workshop, Dr. Rosen will expand on the notion of how young learners in the iGeneration and Generation “C” use technology and how their preferences impact learning both in the classroom and in the home. The workshop will first examine, in detail, characteristics of these new generations and how their values have been influenced by their constant immersion in technological environments. Using those values as guidelines, the workshop will take the approach that we can adopt educational models that keep the role of the teacher as expert while modifying the delivery systems to include those technologies that are already attractive to these young learners in the environments in which they learn best. Alternative models will be provided that capitalize on the unique tech-savvy nature of the iGeneration and Generation C to inspire, engage and immerse them in the learning process. These models will couple new and engaging technologies with best educational practices in providing multi-learning environments options for our new generations of student learners. Dr. Rosen will use a down-to-earth style that is both humorous and positive and will provide a solid foundation for advancing the educational experiences of students, educators and parents.

Becoming a Networked Educator

(Warning - adding this event to your Shed schedule does not mean that you are enrolled)

Keri-Lee Beasley

Increasingly, teachers are expected to be all things to all people: consistently relevant, engaging, with up-to-date resources and creative and innovative classroom practices, but how can busy teachers achieve the professional development necessary to meet these lofty expectations? Answer: Professional Learning Communities. Online Professional Learning Communities (PLCs) offer educators the ability to organically develop or extend their existing learning networks. Importantly, these PLCs are cultivated by individual teachers, giving the communities the focus and flexibility needed to help ensure individualized success. Through the use of tools such as Twitter, Google Reader, RSS, Diigo and blogs, teachers can access up-to-date and relevant resources and experiences that have been filtered and vetted by their own network. These PLCs are open all hours, so finding inspiration is possible any time of day or night. Anticipated learning outcomes: Guidance and assistance in developing a personalised PLC Opportunities for global collaboration Exposure to different perspectives A commitment to keeping it real creating a manageable workflow for busy educators Audience: This would suit teachers of any age group/subject area, but especially those who have yet to embark on a significant online presence.

Capturing, Sharing, and Resolving Perplexity in the Classroom

(Warning - adding this event to your Shed schedule does not mean that you are enrolled)

Dan Meyer

We often look to the web for engaging resources — the kind of material that keeps students' attention — but the web is underutilized as a source for perplexing resources — material that puts a question in a student's head that won't leave her alone until she's answered it. Those are students who want to learn. In this hands-on workshop we'll locate sources for perplexity in our classrooms and learn the tools that will help us share them with our students.

Developing 21st century learners through the integration of overlapping affinity spaces - Making it Happen

(Warning - adding this event to your Shed schedule does not mean that you are enrolled)

Nichole Pinkard, Ph.D.

In essence, literate in 2020 will mean being multi-literate: the ability to critically consume and produce media such as print, video, sound and screen. Of course this idea is not new. Many technologists, educators and policy makers support it. However, the blueprint for getting there is still on the drafting table.

In this workshop, Dr Pinkard will help participants contextualise their own thinking and needs of developing multi-literate youth through exposure to some of organic approaches she has been part of :

The design and use of pedagogical-based social networks
Grinding New Lenses - Systems Thinking
The design of teenage media spaces / learning spaces for digital literacies
Approaches to measuring digital literacies
The role of school and after school programs
Learning roles in child’s life
The role of mentors and creative professionals
Designing the performances spaces
Evening the playing fields to enable all forms of expressions to come to the classroom
The importance of Digital CItizenship

Digital Storytelling, Bricolage and Remix: Demystifying the Fog of Creativity.

(Warning - adding this event to your Shed schedule does not mean that you are enrolled)

Jabiz Raisdana

"Nothing is original. Steal from anywhere that resonates with inspiration or fuels your imagination."

This session we will explore the very nature of creativity as we unpack ideas like originality, derivative work, remixing and sampling, as well as Copyright, ownership of media and ideas, and much more. We will take a look at the impact of Creative Commons on global culture and how this impact affects education and beyond.

This session will introduce and define Digital Storytelling. While examining the bricolage nature of Digital Storytelling, participants will begin to think about ways they can use the philosophical concepts discussed in their everyday classrooms.

Designed to place the teacher in the role of learner, this workshop will make you re-think what you may already think about culture, media, and art. It is open to K-12 teachers and anyone interested in creativity.

Leadership in a 21st Century School - Mobile devices are changing our lives, but how can they best be used in schools?

(Warning - adding this event to your Shed schedule does not mean that you are enrolled)

Dr. Jenny Lane 

TPACK iPad Project in Schools http://tips2012.edublogs.org

School ecosystems need to draw on four sources of knowledge: innovation and knowledge inspired by science (research and evaluation); innovation inspired by the development of new products and services; innovation and knowledge inspired by practitioners, teachers, school heads; and innovation inspired by users namely, students, parents, communities (OCED, 2012).

In this session we will explore how we can access and apply this knowledge when leading 21st century schools and implementing digital curriculum?  A number of key questions will be addressed namely;

  • which strategies can school leaders use when setting the direction on the use of mobile devices like iPads in the classroom?
  • what is the research telling us about the successful implementation of mobile devices for learning?
  • Many teachers need to make huge shifts in their pedagogy to use mobile devices to engage students and enhance learning.
  • how can school leaders support teachers to make these shifts in pedagogy and develop their technological, pedagogical and content knowledge ?

We need to lead by example and motivate teachers to transform their teaching and learning to incorporate 21st century skills? This session will provide both theoretical and practical insights. Participants are encouraged to bring an iPad loaded with the Edmodo App (www.edmodo.com) Please set up a free account before the session to access a set of resources generated from the TPACK iPad in Project in Schools (TIPS). We will explore how to use the iPad to create teacher made resources and how to redesign curriculum to have an inquiry focus and be more personalised.  The SAMR model will be used to set goals and guide teachers as they transform their teaching and integrate mobile devices.

Note: Participants should bring their own iPad to this session as iPads will not be provided Please ensure you have administrative rights to install apps on the device and the Apple iTunes account password. You will be provided a list of Apps to install prior to the workshop.

Paper #: 1
Title: The Participation Forum
Presented by: Brant Knutzen
From: Hong Kong University, CITE
Duration: 45 minutes
Outline
This presentation will demonstrate two new Moodle 2 plugins which support a sustainable eLearning methodology for integrating online discussions as formative learning activities. Both plugins are free open source projects currently in trials at the University of Hong Kong. This methodology builds on the affordances of a new Moodle plugin: the Participation Forum is a modified discussion forum activity which automatically awards participation points and dynamically generates a grade for each student based on their posting activity. Since the Moodle LMS automates the awarding of participation points, this technology supports a sustainable teaching methodology integrating a regular series of online discussions as formative learning activities, and can be scaled up to support large class sizes of 100 - 200 students or more. The Participation Map plugin creates a new type of data portrait for displaying the dynamics of an online discussion. This learning analytical tool describes a discussion both quantitatively and qualitatively, with a focus on the collaborative interactivity between the participants. It enables a researcher or instructor to quickly visualize the patterns of interaction between students, and gauge the level of collaboration achieved within groups. The latest enhancement of this tool can create a completely anonymized graph suitable for use outside of the classroom, such as in conferences or research papers. This presentation will also review the pedagogy based on social constructivism and socio-cultural factors which motivates the QUALITY of the student posting behavior. This teaching methodology creates a foundation of participation, where the teaching role is still crucial for guiding learning and scaffolding
                                                   
                   
Paper #: 2
Title: Creating Student Centred Classrooms Using Moodle
Presented by: Juliana Agostino
From: Canadian International School, Hong Kong
Duration: 45 minutes
Outline
This presentation will focus on the features of MOODLE that enable teachers to create a course in which students are in control of their own learning. Through interactive lessons, journals, feedback forums, quizzes and most importantly completion tracking, MOODLE becomes a tool to help students become independent and reflective learners. Using MOODLE, the role of the teacher can be redefined to that of an education coach that can monitor and advise students through every stage of the learning cycle. This workshop is for teachers who wish to use MOODLE beyond its file sharing and assignment uploading capabilities and as a way to create a truly student centred blended learning environment.
                   
                                
Paper #: 3
Title: e-Portfolios for Teacher Development on Moodle
Presented by: Chris Baldwin, e-learning consultant,  Global Online Teacher Development team
From: British Council Hong Kong,
Duration: 30 minutes
Outline
e-portfolios for teacher development – what are they? What do they do? How can I set them up? This presentation will look at the use of e-portfolios and describe a simple approach to setting up an e-portfolio system using tools such as forums and the file repository in the popular Moodle Learning Management System.


Paper #: 4
Title: Creating the Course Blog for Studio Courses Integrating Moodle and Word Press using LTI
Presented by: Darcy Christ
From: Freelance moodle Developer
Duration: 30 minutes
Outline

This is a brief presentation about how to set up a WordPress Network and use  the basicLTI4WordPress plugin, which enables the automatic creation of course blogs and provisioning of student accounts in Moodle. To connect your Moodle course to WordPress, you simply need to create an External Tool activity, using the correct address/URL, a key and secret. I will discuss the basic ideas behind the Learning Tools Interoperability (LTI) protocol, which is to make it easy for tool providers to build one mechanism which can be used by any LMS or any other client which understands the protocol.

In its most basic form, LTI sends user data (information about who the students are) and returns grades, based upon what the student does within the tool. LTI has the potential to change how we interact with LMSes like Moodle.

I explored this protocol in the Faculty of Architecture at HKU, as a way to make it easy for teachers to create public facing blogs for their studio classes. Moodle is essentially a closed and private system, whereas WordPress is meant to be open and public. I will provide some simple examples used in the Faculty, discussing the successes and failures, as well as outlining what might be some best practices. Ultimately, the basic LTI4WordPress needs to be developed and the choice of themes, plugins and defaults could go a long way towards making your implementation successful.

I will also end the presentation with an open discussion about whether the course blog is the same thing as an ePortfolio. Since this plugin does not actually yet return any grades from WordPress, there is room to discuss what might be graded while using a blog. I am looking for feedback from people who have implemented ePortfolios and to find out whether this kind of system will work for them.

Teaching Visual Literacy & No More Cat and Mouse: What Research, Practice and Common Sense Can Tell Us about Teaching Students to Do Honest Academic Work

Debbie Abilock

Debbie Abilock bring a two part workshop suitable for all secondary educators.

Part 1:
Decoders, fluent readers and finally expressive readers and writers – these stages apply to visual literacy as well as to reading print. In an image-drenched world, we’ll consider the “rhetorical situation,” examine some signs and symbols, and see how point of view results from the interaction of the reader, the audience and the medium. We’ll consider some emerging issues, such as visual plagiarism, and practice some reading and teaching strategies, such as determine authority and bias using photographs.

Part 2:
As teachers in a Web 2.0 environment, we face the dilemma of teaching plagiarism in a contributory culture where the norms of rip, remix, create and share are at odds with copyright, intellectual property and academic ethics. Are you playing cat-and-mouse with student plagiarists? Do they resist taking notes (“I can remember this stuff word-for-word”), then print out everything - but still forget to attribute quotes or ideas? If students describe research as “smushing stuff” with a bibliography, why wouldn’t they take short cuts? They’ll tell you that Wikipedia is common knowledge and, besides, you just don’t attribute “mashups” anymore. We’ll take a look at what the research says has the greatest impact on student learning, drives motivation, and builds reading comprehension. Then we’ll examine some student work, and identify curricular designs and teaching strategies that will ring true to your students.
