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.

Web Conferencing – Can We Chat?

Presenter: Kim Caise

Presentation Title: Web Conferencing – Can We Chat?

Presentation Description: Web conferencing refers to a meeting, presentation or gathering online using a web platform and web cam. As a former campus instructional technologist, I conducted several web conferences with students. I adapted the tag line from Joan Rivers who was known for saying, “Can we talk?” and changed it to can we ‘chat’. Web conferencing includes chatting, the use of web cams, and a variety of other resources and tools that can be incorporated to enhance the web conference.

This presentation includes resources, tools and ideas for ways you can implement web conferencing with your students. The resources shared will help make your web conference sessions meaningful and easier to manage. There are many educators that use this strategy to connect with educators around the world. Don’t be afraid to jump in and use web conferencing with your students.

Research shows when students perform for an audience larger than their teacher and peers, the quality of the work produced is higher and the learning that occurs as a result is richer. Web conferencing is a way to expose your students to a larger audience and expand their horizons. Web conferencing allows you to bring world cultures into your classroom or go on a virtual field trip without ever leaving your classroom. Knock down the walls and bring the world to your students – one web conference at a time.

Presentation Description: Handheld computers are everywhere. From mobile phones to handheld games, it’s a very familiar sight to see people of all ages gazing into screens that they can hold. Schools are discovering that handhelds like iPod touch and iPad make great learning tools. In fact, handhelds can play a big part in Project Based Learning. Not only do projects motivate students because they use exciting handheld technology, but they also lend themselves to student voice and choice.
