Teaching Millennials in an Information Age
Millennial students were born digital but those responsible for their education were not. This session will examine ways that the read/write web can serve as a powerful educational tool in teachers’ and students’ efforts to achieve 21st century literacy.
This presentation will address instructional strategies that enable teachers to promote collaborative, independent, and differentiated learning, adapting to the needs of each learner with a focus on content standards. The presenter will demonstrate how educators can use Web 2.0 tools to differentiate learning by taking advantage of multiple modalities to deliver content in order for all students to achieve their full potential.
New Media, Social Learning and Edutainment in Nearly Now
We’ll examine what it means to be a teacher and a learner in an Information Age; why it’s essential that students become fluent in new literacies; and see tools educators can use to create standards-based activities. Strategies that appeal to the learning preferences of millennials while at the same time honoring traditional practices related to teaching, learning and assessment will be presented.
Examples of how educators can promote media literacy in the classroom rather than compete with the popular media students consume during their out-of-school time. Educators will simultaneously improve their technology proficiency and stay one step ahead of their students. Participants will learn how to create standards based activities with a focus on emerging technologies and best-practices for classroom technology integration.
New Media Literacy
In order for students to become successful members of a global society they need to develop digital-age literacies. 21st Century teaching and learning demands a new view of literacy including technological literacy. However, learning must go beyond technology merely as a tool.
Today’s literacy is about students using technology to develop the skills and attitudes that ensure a successful future. Students will find the curriculum more meaningful when they engage in projects that encourage a sense of collaboration, creativity and problem solving.
This presentation will provide an overview of the concept of New Media Literacy, its theoretical foundations and development over the years, a brief presentation of the various new media literacy definitions and related theories, as well as an in-depth look at a number of free Web 2.0 tools and applications that K-12 educators can use to create standards-based learning experiences that are engaging, foster creativity, and relevant to the current and future needs of their students.
Internet Awareness and Safety
More than just music players, iPods can serve as motivating learning tools. Teachers will learn how to utilize the iPod to offer anytime, anywhere opportunities for teaching and learning. This session will also address how the iPod can take learning beyond the boundaries of the classroom to teach and inform students, parents and community members. You’ll learn all about the features of the latest web communication, how to harness the power of RSS, utilize blogs in education, and share knowledge through Podcasts. Leave with examples of how K-12 teachers can foster students’ information, visual, and media literacies by integrating iPods and related podcasting tools in their classroom.
