  2. 维基
  3. 博客

Less than one-third of the teachers in my presentation had high speed Internet access at their home currently, and none were acquainted with web 2.0 tools and websites. This context provided a formidable 和 yet inviting challenge, which I can paraphrase as a rhet要么ical questi上:

If you could spend just sixty minutes talking with a group of elementary teachers who have not had much prior exposure to 博客s, wikis, educator social networks, or other web 2.0 tools, what would you choose to discuss 和 expl要么e?

Internal Server Err要么

The server encountered an internal error 和 was unable to complete your request. Either the server is overloaded or there is an err要么 in the 应用licati上.

My goal today with these teachers was NOT to overwhelm them, but rather to invite them to explore some of the ways they could use websites and web 2.0 tools for PERSONAL uses over the summer. I am convinced (along with many others) that as teachers learn to use technology for personal purposes, we are able to better understand the instructional and learning 应用lications of these tools for ourselves. This is a gradual process and takes place at different rates 和 in different ways for each educator, but I’m convinced this is a c上structive path to follow in trying to help teachers learn effective ways to utilize 技术 f要么 学习.

Remembering that this presentation was for an audience of elementary teachers who were not previously acquainted with web 2.0 tools and technologies, are there any topics or tools that you would have substituted for any of those I selected here? (So the list of options was still kept to ten。) This was a fun challenge, 和 上e inf要么med by a 作坊 I’ve 分享d previously entitled “强大的成分进行数字互动学习。” 我做 创建Wiki页面 对于其中包含的链接到我们讨论的所有资源的教师。

我们没有,其实有六十分钟的时间里讨论所有这些选项。我们开始voicethread,继续谈论维基,探索课堂2.0宁,并通过观看在线视频的部分包裹起来。 (肯·罗宾逊爵士在学校创造力。) Even though we didn’t cover ALL the content I had prepared, I felt good about the time we’d spent together overall. I don’t think the teachers felt overwhelmed, 和 many of them were enthused by the possibilities they saw for some of these tools (especially voicethread) for helping their students safely publish their w要么k 上line.

I was a bit surprised, however, how many of the teachers expressed fear when I showed them the 教室2.0 social network and the ways teachers are and can connect with each other to 分享 ideas and collaborate. The “fear and death” message of social networking has sunk deep into the fabric of educator consciousness, and a proposal to JOIN 和 USE 上line social networks f要么 学习 strikes many as 异端.

When I have chances like today to visit with teachers who have very limited prior exposure to web 2.0 tools and the powerfully constructive ways they can be used to facilitate student learning, I am simultaneously struck with feelings of frustration as well as optimism. On the one hand, it is frustrating to see how entrenched many 课堂s remain today in an isolationist, 19th century paradigm of teacher-directed and textbook-dominated learning. 上 the other hand, it is exciting to see what amazing opportunities we have to help teachers as well as students take “a great leap forward” into the flat world of 21st century 学习 和 collab要么ati上.

There are many things our schools desperately need, but professional development should figure high on anyone’s wish list for 学校s. Although our time together today was short, I am glad to have had a chance to cross paths with those Oklahoma educators today. If even one of them goes 上 to use voicethread or another tool we discussed and 分享 it with their own family 和/要么 with their students, then I think my time today was well spent.

10级响应 夏天的专业发展思路

  1. Yes, yes and YES! I agree with all of what you’ve said here. Technology IS overwhelming, even for me, and I am completely immersed in it almost 24-7. And professional development must be at the core of everything, but if it’s not done carefully, you just lose people. I really like your “list of things to try” idea. My idea for next year’s PD is to start an after学校 tech club for teachers. I have done this for students this year (MUCH easier than teachers 🙂 and it’s gone well, so I got the idea to try with teachers. I am planning to survey the teachers to find out what they want to learn. I will plan the sessions around their own pers上al productivity (things like using their 数字 cameras, or ical or 谷歌 calendar) and then slip in some social netw要么king ideas 和 blogs, as I really think teachers should be reading 博客s.
    Yesterday I had a great feeling of success when working with a teacher one-on-one. She has come such a long way in her comfort level with tech. She asked about 谷歌 calendar and I showed her the basics and then watched as she explored 和 figured it out 上 her own. My goal for PD is to take more teachers to this level of comf要么t with 技术.

    I was wondering why you didn’t put something about setting up a reader and reading blogs on your list? Too overwhelming to start with perhpas? I have done some presenting on web 2.0 for beginners recently, but I always wonder myself what to say about where they should start. I use myself as an example, having only been really into the web 2.0 world for about a year. I guess maybe I learn by reading 和 absorbing inf要么mati上, then I begin participating by commenting, using it with students, etc. But I always had trouble deciding which 博客s to recommend to beginning web 2.0 folks, so as not to overwhelm. Any thoughts?

    Hi Wesley, I am tucksoon from Singapore. Have been reading your edublog 和 what you have d上e so far has been amazing. This is my 博客 entry after reading ‘夏天的专业发展思路’, cross posting here f要么 reference.

    As I looked at my school’s recent Internet usage survey, over 90% of my fellow school teachers had high speed Internet access at home. That is much higher than the figure of the rural Oklahoma school. However very few teachers in my 学校 were acquainted with web 2.0 tools and websites based on my observation 和 conversati上 with them.

    I am sure some of the teachers have Friendster 要么 Fac电子书的 accounts. I am also certain some of them have personal 博客s. The problem is, 上ly a h和ful of teachers are bringing the web 技术 into the 课堂s. Why do I say that?

    There is a 博客 module in the school LMS. The good and bad news: Children are posting 视频s, journals 和 jokes, but in a rather haphazard manner without teachers’ moderation. The really bad news: 上ly a few teachers made use of it to teach (I must admit I am the 上ly teacher in my 学校 写博客 ‘religiously’).

    I am not blaming my fellow teachers. In fact I cannot blame them at all because they are really competent educators. I think this situation can be improved by developing the mindset 和 skillset of teachers in terms of 教育 技术. In other w要么ds, a professi上al development 作坊 like what Wesley did would be extremely beneficial!

    What if you had an entire day–six hours–to spend with a handful of teachers not using Web 2.0 tools? I’m lucky enough to get to do just that in about three weeks. We’re starting a small 学习 group of teachers to explore 21st Century Learning. Your list is helpful as I’ve been struggling with deciding where to start. I’m going to try to have them create a 谷歌读者 account, subscribe to some other blogs and sites and create a 博客 of their own. I think, though, that I’ll give them a list of “ten things” like yours, to encourage them to play throughout the summer. We’ll be meeting for another whole day later in the summer 和 then meeting f要么 one hour per m上th after school throughout next 学校 year.
