Slide 1

We will be collaborating with each other during learning/networking time today. We will be clarifying Creative Commons and taking a look at the National Education Technology Policy and draft 2016 ISTE Student Standards.

Slide 2

If a teacher has a computer with speakers, one way they may want to use it is during prayer time. Music can be a great bridge between coming into the classroom and starting religion class, as a part of the morning prayer routine, or many other times. I found this instrumental piece of music on YouTube. You wouldn’t even need to project the screen for the students. www.youtube.com/watch?v=dM_ZNXXucvY Please read the prayer yourself (on the 3-2-1 sheet) and then we will finish with the Our Father as a group.

Slide 3

I’ve been asked over time “how do you find all these different ideas.” I’ve spoken about this a number of times. It is how we got into talking about and using Edmodo and Diigo. Another tool I use is Voxer. Does anyone use that app? If so, what is your experience with it? Voxer is like a walkie talkie app. You download the app then you have to find people or groups to talk with. I using Voxer with a group of teachers who were Not At ISTE in 2014. The thing that makes this app interesting is that you can communicate via text…you can leave voice messages and have an asynchronous conversation with a group of people. While I don’t spend huge amounts of time on the app when I dip in I learn something. One day I was in the NJ Elementary Tech Teachers group. A teacher shared that she tried a Tech Playdate and invited teachers to read a blog post about it.

Slide 4

We are going to do this today. One of the things that is always clear is how everyone enjoys networking time. This is a way to network together. Many would also like more time to have hands on a tool. This will give us that opportunity as well. There is a table with three messages. You will use the stickies to post ideas about things you wan to try, share, or learn about. We will then break out into different tables for about 35 minutes.

Slide 5

Remember how we were talking about copyright. I wanted to ask permission to use the blog post photos. Since I learned about it in Voxer…that is where I asked permission. The funny thing about communicating in so many spaces is that sometimes you cannot remember where you “met” a person. Kathi was at a table at the Edscape conference with me. She recognized my name from Voxer. It took me a couple of minutes to focus on the fact that we met around a shared Vox about her tech play date.

Slide 6

Remember…it’s not just about asking permission for images. You want to ask permission for screen captures of communications too!

Slide 7

If you want to try the Voxer app, download the app on an iOS, Android or Windows device. We now have an RCAN group. If you would like to join, just let me know your Voxer id. This could be a useful app within your school. It is an alternate to a walkie-talkie.

Slide 8

Last year we gave Slack a try over the summer. It is another group communication tool. I’d be happy to add you to our group if you would like to give it a try.

Slide 9

At our tech playdate, you can choose to work on something we learned this year, last year, today, or something you want to share. We will self-select groups at the back tables. There are only four chairs per table but you can drag more chairs, and you can use half the table to one purpose and half to another. You may end up standing and talking with one another or just stay in the main seating area.

Slide 10

Tiggly are physical toys that can be used to interact with apps on the iPad. There are three sets: shapes, numbers, and words. They have an interesting deal where you can buy one package for $29.95 and give one to a school. You can give one package per household. I learned from John Rios that there are also education sets that come with student workbooks, journals, and teacher curriculum guides as well as: 5 math and 5 words for $287; 20 sets of shapes for $550; or 20 sets of math and 20 sets of words for $990. It is available for iOS, Android, and Kindle Fire.

Slide 11

Osmo has a stand with a mirror that reflects from the table to the camera. There is a genius set ($99) that has tangrams, words, and numbers or a starter set ($79) with just tangram and words. It is for students 5-13 years old. It can get quite complex. There does not seem to be educational pricing. It is ONLY available for iPads. They hope to develop Android versions in the future.

Slide 12

Last year we took a look at Newsela.com. It offers free and paid services. You can certainly get a lot out of the free service: you can set up a classroom, give students accounts, and share articles. You can find an article and post it to a teacher site. Newsela allows students to select a reading lexile. They can all read the same content tailored to their reading ability. You can switch to Spanish, too. It can be useful for English Language Learners or in a Spanish classroom to practice reading actual articles at the lowest reading level. Many articles have comprehension quizzes and writing prompts. You cannot get student progress in the free account, but you could use the writing prompts and have the students answer in long-hand or by typing into a word processor.

Slide 13

Epic Books works on browsers and in iOS and Android devices. The app does say that there are in app purchases, but you can read the books for free. The teacher sets up a classroom account and student accounts. The students select their age and genres of interest. They get a recommended reading list. The books can be read but several can be read to the student.

Slide 14

Once you create an account the teacher profile allows for set up of student accounts. You need a student name. Optionally you can include a parent email and create a security pin so students don’t accidently sign in to another student’s account.

Slide 15

These are screen captures from an iPad. Once the teacher signs in students see the class list. If a teacher set a security code, they will type it after they select their name.

Slide 16

The first time they log on they select their age and favorite types of books. This can be done in advance for the youngest students, or done individually with the student and teacher working together.

Slide 17

As we work in the Technology Playdate, you might choose to try the Tiggly and Osmo manipulatives or you may want to look at setting up a Newsela or Epic Books. You may want to try something we talked about earlier in the year like Plickers, Socrative, or Kahoot or test out Voxer or Slack. It’s up to you.

Slide 18

You did some pre-work learning at https://sites.google.com/a/rcanschools.org/rcan-learns/the-road-ahead/3---creative-commons and we are going to try to clarify things that people questioned in their blog posts and Edmodo submissions.

Slide 19

I introduced Creative Commons to students in about the sixth grade. We would use Creative Commons licensed music in projects. I would show this video first. It is important that they have a background in copyright and fair use before you start working on Creative Commons.

Slide 20

Where copyright is ALL RIGHTS RESERVED, Creative Commons says what you can do in advance. All Creative Commons licenses start with attribution required. You have to say who made the product and where you found it – whether it is a video, audio, or image file. Commercial states whether the artist wants you to be able to use the work if it becomes part of a product you sell for a profit. If the license says NonCommerical, you cannot use it on items for sale. Modification is the most complicated. The artist is saying whether or not you can change the item by shortening the sound, or colorizing or cropping the image. If you see NoDerivs you cannot change the original. If it says ShareAlike you are expected to use the same license on the modified original you create. Public domain means you give up all rights to what is done with your original.

Slide 21

When you want to select a license for your own work, you can go to the Creative Commons site and it will provide you with several questions. As you answer them, it builds the license. You can get a link to the license terms in plain English that can be posted with your work as well as an icon for your web page.

Slide 22

You cannot use this image in a book you can sell because it is NonCommercial. You can modify it any way you wish.

Slide 23

You can use this is a book you sell, but you may NOT make any changes to the image. That is what NoDervis means.

Slide 24

You cannot use this in a book you sell. If you make a derivative work based on this image you must share it with the same terms as this image. That’s what ShareAlike means.

Slide 25

Did you know there was a National Education Technology Plan? The revised version came out just before Christmas.

Slide 26

Everything revolves around student learning. The leadership sets the vision. It can be a teacher-leader, a principal, or the superintendent of schools. We can use assessment tools to help understand student learning progress for each individual student. Teachers must put their vision of student learning through technology into practice. The whole things works together if the building has good connectivity, understands the resources that are available, provides accessibility tools to all students who may take advantage of things students with disabilities use, and working devices. Students must learn to continue their learning wherever they are, whenever they want.

Slide 27

The National Educational Technology Plan suggest 1000mbps service per 100 students which equates to 100 kbps per student.

Slide 28

According to the information 80% of all school districts in New Jersey have closed the gap.

Slide 29

These are some of what is going on already in the Archdiocese of Newark at the elementary and high school level.
