Slide 5

We will be talking more directly about the first three surveys I asked you to complete for the tech skills at grades PK-1. In the results one of the skills in the first grade that came up with high tallies is under Communication and Collaboration. I was happy to see that very few people felt this belongs in a higher level grade. Most just did not get to the skill this year.

Slide 6

I was really excited when Donna reached out to me from Visitation Academy wanting to know if she could bring her first grade teacher to share how the students created video book trailers in teams for Dr. Seuss books. When teachers include these types of projects, they are not adding to an already full curriculum, they are teaching the skills differently. Also, teachers are providing evidence of their skills as a teacher. If we look at the My Learning Plan Two and Four Domain Observations, 2E5 states that a teacher has effective use of physical resources. In this case the teacher had the students use iPads to take photos. With support from the teacher they put those photos and words into an iMovie trailer. As a direct result, teachers show proficiency in 3C1 and 4. Students have a different enthusiasm and interest they have to use their thinking and problem solving skills as well. The student are actively working.

Slide 7

On Tuesday morning, the teacher will share her work and I will video tape it. You will hear from her directly when I send out the materials next week. Let’s take a look at a book trailer. The students have QR codes to share at home. Shannon used the link at the bottom of the slide from Tony Vincent as a planning tool. Tony is a very dynamic former 5th grade teacher, now consultant. He is well worth following on Twitter or

Slide 8

Guided Internet Use Contribute to a class project that communicates an idea to multiple audiences using a variety of media and formats with teacher support

Slide 11

This is not an appropriate video to share with your students. The word hell is used once. Reflect on what you have seen students do in their presentations at school based on the video.

Slide 12

The creation of presentations gets directly to critical thinking skills.

Slide 14

You will create an infographic based on the data from a survey called Speak Up by the Project Tomorrow team. You can have your students, faculty, and parents participate. It is free. It opens about October and closes mid-December/early January. The data is rolled-up into a national set of results. You get access to all the results from your school for free.

Slide 15

It is very easy to create student accounts if you are a Google school.

Slide 16

You do not have to type a last name. A last initial is fine.

Slide 17

If you use this with students, according to the Terms of Use, you must let the parents know their students will be using this website. They just choose their age group and go right into the program. They do not have to confirm the account with an email link.

Slide 18

I think there are the most templates with data under Infographics.

Slide 19

The strip in each block allows you to manipulate the data.

Slide 20

You have a variety of chart types and graphics built-in for free.

Slide 21

If you choose a black icon, you can use the color bucket to change it to a lighter or different color. You may also want to teach students how to use the arrange icon to change the stacking order of images.

Slide 22

When you choose the download button, you can either download the entire infographic as one PNG or JPEG or you can download each block as a separate image in a ZIP file.

Slide 23

You will either drag or use the Insert Image option in Google Slides to place the infographic block on the slide.

Slide 24

You can also use the Share button to get a public link to the infographic.

Slide 26

You want to teach students early that a best practice in creating a presentation is to have one message per slide. The best way to teach a student to create presentations is to simply allow them to have at most a title on a slide with one or two pictures. We have a perceptive limit of 6 objects or less. Once the student moves their five images in line, they can delete the rest of the objects.

Slide 27

When students create the penguin glyph they are evaluating the choices by reasoning through the criteria on the PDF that I have shared in the Google Classroom and take action to create the image that best represents themselves.

Slide 28

This is a sample of the Glyph Directions PDF. After the students assemble their own penguin they can delete the leftover parts and types notes to say why they chose each piece. For example, my name is Ann Oro. I have not read a book about penguins. I have seen a live penguin at the Bronx Zoo. I like warm weather best. I like to eat fish, especially shrimp and lobster. I am a girl.

Slide 29

Students can create their own images to support presentation slides. In the next example, students looked at the Eastern Goldfinch, the state bird, on Little Explorers Picture Dictionary. They had to observe photos of the bird and take action to create their own.

Slide 30

This supports a fourth grade skill of creating a personal image. It supports a third grade skill of adding images in slide placeholders. The notes section can contain a few facts that students learned about the state bird.

Slide 31

Depending on the content in science class, student can analyze why they like a penguin or Eastern Goldfinch better. They can use their own experience in real life and through reading. They share their belief of which bird they like better.

Slide 32

Sentences, on slides, are a problem. With images, if you see a word, only 8% of the people viewing the slide will remember it in five weeks. If it is a black and white image it will be remembered by 65% of the people. If you have a color image 85% of the people will remember the image five weeks later. Students can find images on Pics4Learning. It is a free site that has no inappropriate images. They can download the images to their Download folder and bring them onto the slide. The notes section can contain their reasoning of why they like the goldfinch or penguin better. This is a very good time to teach students to proportionally resize images. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bOrHxRB3JrQ

Slide 33

What did this have to do with our February meeting?

Slide 34

Clipart makes much less of an impact on memory than photos. What did this have to do with our discussion in February?

Slide 36

Any new questions?

Slide 37

Any new questions? You want to make sure that the school business manager is one of your stakeholders.

Slide 39

https://www.warrentboe.org/technology/tech_plan2016-2019/ This is a goal from Warren NJ Board of Ed technology plan. You can see how it is broken into objectives and strategies.

Slide 40

An indicator lets anyone reading the plan measure if goals are successful. Thinking about the chairs from last month, the goal is met if someone can sit in the chair and it bears their weight and the clothes glide smoothly on the chair when a person sits.

Slide 41

https://www.warrentboe.org/technology/tech_plan2016-2019/ These are some indicators from the Warren NJ Tech Plan.

Slide 42

https://www.warrentboe.org/technology/tech_plan2016-2019/ Finally, you will break the Goals/Objectives/Strategies into a three-year implementation and training activity chart. Make sure you include budget items, as they did with funding needed for substitute teachers).

Slide 44

In Google Classroom, I have shared charts with the results from the PK-1st grade skill surveys. I will continue to update the charts and new results come in. It is important to get as much information as possible so that there is a balanced look at all the schools’ progress in skills. I don’t want it to be heavily favored by schools that did everything or schools that are just starting to rethink the use of technology by students.

Slide 45

A second tab on the bottom of each sheet shares comments from the survey.

Slide 46

Many of the schools use ABCya. There are many skills you can develop with students. You can help students recognize the icon to access the Internet.

Slide 47

Remember the Common Sense Media has a great scope and sequence for many skills we teach. When you work with our young students, it is important to help them understand what an ad is an recognize it. The link will take you to the lesson. You need a free Common Sense Media account.

Slide 48

Another Common Sense Media lesson is Going Places Safely. I learned about a few games that students can play with others both in the classroom and around the world. This is a great way to give them practical experience in the differences between working with a classmate face-to-face versus others in the digital world.

Slide 49

When you join, you must use a fun and friendly name. You may want students to use the school’s initials and their student number. For example, SMS11. They can join a public or private game, or create a game.

Slide 50

Common Sense Media’s Keep It Private lesson is a good tie-in here. If you create a Private Game, you must create a password. This is a good time to choose a class password for students near each other, for example, sms100 - sms200 - sms300 so they can easily find each other and play.

Slide 51

Once four students are in the game, they can start. The game gives math problems with multiple choice answers. When the game ends, they get a report with their accuracy, rate of problem solving and missed problems. This can be shared with the classroom teacher.

Slide 52

The students will need to learn to capture then paste the screen in a word processor. You can have the students type their name and add a short reflection. On a Windows machine, they can press Ctrl+PrtScn to copy the screen then Ctrl+V to paste it. Apple can use Command+Shift+3 to save the screen to the desktop then they can import the image into a word processor.

Slide 53

In October I mentioned the 21 Things for Students/Teachers website. The Students site does not match too well with our RCAN Tech Standards. You might want to share it with teachers. This is a screenshot from their section on how to capture a screen on a Chromebook.

Slide 55

The Read Theory site was shared with me when I went to St. James in Springfield. It is free. Again, the terms of service state that you simply must inform parents that the students are using the site.

Slide 56

You can create classes with a class code for students to join.

Slide 58

They all take a pretest to set their reading level.

Slide 59

There are multiple choice questions.

Slide 60

Once they have taken the pretest, the students read short selections and take tests. Teachers can see the student results in their teacher dashboard.

Slide 39

Goals/Objectives/Strategies Goal #1: Utilize technology to self-direct student learning and promote choice while assisting students to solve real-world problems. Objectives: Staff will work at grade level team meetings and curriculum meetings to develop lesson plans that empower students to have choice in solving real-world problems and/or skill building activities. Staff will identify and define the problem solving skills necessary to solve real-world problems or skill-building activities. (Strategy 1) Staff will collaborate on ways to integrate technology, specifically developing lessons based upon self-directed learning, real world problems and/or skill building activities. (Strategy 2) Lesson plans will be designed to promote opportunities for students to apply 21st century fluencies and skills that are aligned to the standards. Create a professional culture of sharing experiences in technology integration and lesson planning. (Strategy 2) Staff will implement lessons that include an element of student choice and/or self-direction in solving problems and/or skill building activities. (Strategy 2)
