Class 3 Face to Face 1.5 hours
This class met at one of the elementary school’s workroom. I did not like the physical space–circle tables grouped together–hard to share and I like using the lcd/screen to share with.
This classed focused on how we were using our networking tools and the differences between 20th and 21st Century Learning.
I went to a Technology Leadership Day in Columbus about 5 years ago. Where we looked at 21st Century Skills. Although the focus started to be on technology it quickly changed to: 21st Skills that did not not require computers–because several districts either did not have many computers or they did not have internet connections. So I took away from that day that you do not need a computer to help kids with 21C Skills. Like problem solving, ciritical thinking, networking etc. Does technology make this easier–most definately.
So when we moved all those post-it-notes around on the table it was interesting to hear what my colleagues thought about all the different skills that make up good 21st C habits.
Talking pedagogy is probably not my strongest suit since I am realitively new to K-12 education but I think I have a good grasp on skills of the 20th and 21st century.
I will be working in Google Docs with one topic! Now to tackle Google Docs–I have gotten my password updated again at school so here I go……….
This past week I had taken some footage–for a Community Forum on Underage Drinking–so when discussing how to share to the rest of the community I have posted up the video (after editing) to You Tube. This is my first time using You Tube to share–it was exciting! One thing I learned was that you can go out to a website to get an “extension” that way I could post up the entire 1 hour presentation together. You Tube also requires Googel email account/password. 1 Hour
