2010 Announcements Echo Webcasts

K12Online Echo with Dr Tim Tyson

Published by:

Please plan to join organizers and other participants in the free K-12 Online Conference this Monday evening (North American time) for an interactive “Echo” webcast with Dr. Tim Tyson. Details for the event, including an RSVP link, are available on the Ning event for the Echo. The webcast will start at 9 pm EST / 8 pm CST / 7 pm MST / 6 pm PST. Use this link from dateandtime.com to check the start time in your local area. Dr Tyson presented “The Classroom Teacher As a 21st Century Instructional Leader” in the “Leading the Change” strand of the 2010 conference.

During the Echo webcast, we’ll be watching Tim’s presentation and discussing it in a text back-channel. We’ll also have an opportunity to interact with Tim afterwards and he’ll respond to participant questions. If you don’t already, follow Tim Tyson on Twitter @timtyson and subscribe to his blog, drtimtyson.com/blog. Tim’s K12Online10 message was both inspirational and challenging. This will be an echo webcast you won’t want to miss!

All K-12 Online Conference Echo Webcasts are archived on EdTechTalk.

2010-Keynote

Closing Keynote: A Gardener’s Approach To Learning

Published by:

Presenter: David Warlick
Location: Raleigh, North Carolina, USA
Link to David’s bio page

Presentation Title: A Gardener’s Approach To Learning

Presentation Description:

When I left the North Carolina State Department of Public Instruction in 1995, the Internet was still a wilderness for the educators who even knew that it existed. I, and others, saw ourselves as trailblazers, establishing routes and landmarks for those who followed.
Then, for years, settling that wilderness became an allegory for an education institution that was, at last, starting to establish the means to move into this new environment and even beginning to expect educators to leave the established but increasingly irrelevant centuries old structures and move into a new and fertile landscape.
It might be usefully to extend this story from pioneers, then settlers, and talk about learning gardeners.  Our classrooms and extended learning environments have become great gardens of potential, and it has become our job to cultivate learning..
To cultivate the future.

Technology and Drama – Teaching with Glove Puppets

Published by:

Presenter: Roland Gesthuizen
Location: Melbourne, Australia
Link to presenter’s K12Online Ning Profile page

Presentation Title: Technology and Drama – teaching with glove puppets

Presentation Description: A junior science class is used here to demonstrate a lesson about multicelular organisms using glove puppets with a constructivist approach to problem solving and blended learning model. It has even been adapted by the teacher Roland Gesthuizen to help explore complex topics including technology issues such as cyberbullying, privacy, programming, copyright, freedom and ethical behaviour whilst improving their literacy and social skills. This is a very engaging way to quickly assess student understanding using some simple technology and computer skills without the need for sophisticated digital equipment.
