Cut through the noise of technology
1. Learning Management systems are not the same as ITC’s for learning and teaching
2. Right question, right time, right audience – process is key
3. There is global agreement about the desirable skills necessary for life love and work
4 If there is no imediate feedback there is no point doing the activity
Pedagogy + Technology + Change Knowledge
Who Owns the Learning???
Provocations as lenses on learning – deliberate and thoughtul challenges created by the teacher with the intention of initiating thinking, extending ideas…..(can type fast enough)
Key ideas- productive discomfort, anonymity, “likes”, grouping
Students – good feedback is important, can take risks, no peer pressure, confidence, like anonymity.
Teachers – allow questions to be posed.
(I think Verso is like Moodle Forum but with anonymity)
Assessment and Teaching of 21st century skills – http://www.atc21s.org
Feedback – technology allows more feedback, enhances what happens in the classroom,
ENGAGE (personalised textbook) – immediate feedback, formative assessment, reporting , collaboration, peer tutoring, mastery learning, global learning
What to look for in technology……
Ability for collaboration
Guided self directed learning
Reporting – pictures / infographic
