Life in a Inquiry Driven, Technology-Embedded, Connected Classroom: English | Powerful Learning Practice

Life in a Inquiry Driven, Technology-Embedded, Connected Classroom: English | Powerful Learning Practice | Media 21 Planning and Inspiration Fall 2011 | Scoop.it

"I teach in an inquiry, project-based, technology embedded classroom. A mouthful, I know. So what does that mean? To begin with, I don’t lecture. My students don’t take notes, at least not in the traditional sense, and we don’t read a novel and simply answer the questions.
It means my classroom is a place where my students spend time piecing together what they have learned, critically evaluating its larger purpose, and reflecting on their own learning. It also means my students don’t acquire knowledge just for the sake of acquiring it. They need to do something with it — that’s where “project-based” comes into play..."

Creating Curators: Storify in the Classroom | Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning

Creating Curators: Storify in the Classroom | Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning | Media 21 Planning and Inspiration Fall 2011 | Scoop.it

Storify provides endless possibilities for combining media to tell more comprehensive narratives that include multiple perspectives. And while the tool has largely received attention for its journalistic uses, it’s not a big leap to see how Storify might be used in classrooms for research and presentations. It’s also a valuable tool for teaching media literacy and digital skills, including collaboration.

eng102branscomb - Multimodal Essay

eng102branscomb - Multimodal Essay | Media 21 Planning and Inspiration Fall 2011 | Scoop.it

Your third major writing project will be a multimodal (i.e., print, audio, and video) essay in the form of either a powerpoint (note the small "p") slideshow with audio, a video, or some combination of them. It is designed to allow you to display your knowledge and research in a multimedia format: you should use graphics, photos, embedded audio and video and whatever else you need to develop your position. Your essay should be very narrow in scope, must wrestle with various positions and points of view, and must include cited sources (i.e., research).

NoveList: Little Brother

NoveList:  Little Brother | Media 21 Planning and Inspiration Fall 2011 | Scoop.it

Gr. 8-12 /*Starred Review*/ Seventeen-year-old techno-geek w1n5t0n (aka Marcus) bypasses the school's gait-recognition system by placing pebbles in his shoes, chats secretly with friends on his IMParanoid messaging program, and routinely evades school security with his laptop, cell, WifFnder, and ingenuity. While skipping school, Markus is caught near the site of a terrorist attack on San Francisco and held by the Department of Homeland Security for six days of intensive interrogation. After his release, he vows to use his skills to fight back against an increasingly frightening system of surveillance. Set in the near future, Doctorow's novel blurs the lines between current and potential technologies, and readers will delight in the details of how Markus attempts to stage a techno-revolution. Obvious parallels to Orwellian warnings and post-9/11 policies, such as the Patriot Act, will provide opportunity for classroom discussion and raise questions about our enthusiasm for technology, who monitors our school library collections, and how we contribute to our own lack of privacy.

Learning and Laptops: Fishbowl 101

When I was in college, I had some wonderful professors (Dawn Duncan and Jim Postema- Concordia College) who not only taught us how to think for ourselves, but also challenged us to teach one another. Recall the phrase, to teach is to learn. This might not seem like a big deal, but to ask sophomores and juniors in college to teach their classmates a novel per week complete with criticism as well as facilitating a conversation for an entire college class period was a daunting task. This is where the fishbowl began.
