  • Title: JakesOnline!-Learning Space Workshop
    Descriptive info: JOL.. Learning space workshop.. Conversation Description:.. There are five axioms that form the foundation of the Educon experience.. The axioms focus on the characteristics of school, of the role of technology and what learning can become.. They provide a framework for informing what we can and should do as educators.. When we discuss pedagogy, when we discuss the skills that we wish to see develop in students, when we discuss the role of technology, and when we discuss learning in general, it is of critical importance that we also discuss the role that learning space has in supporting what we do.. Excellent practice, high-quality learning, and successful institutions all require a place for the interactions of teaching and learning.. Yet, the concept of learning space is rarely discussed among educators as a one-size- fits- all classroom is the accepted expectation and reality in today's schools.. As we critically examine educational practice this weekend, it is imperative that we also carefully reconsider the importance of.. where.. learning occurs.. This conversation seeks to do just that.. Conversational Practice:.. In this session, our conversation will be based on developing the perspectives that move participants from a classroom-based model of teaching and learning to one that is rooted in the concept of a learning space.. Our conversations will help participants clarify their expectations for a learning space, and how such a space can support an expanded and relevant educational experience for students.. During this session, I hope the collaborative conversation will challenge you to:.. Critically examine your perceptions and biases about what a classroom is.. Extend your understanding of where learning can take place by encouraging you to reflect on the dimensions of.. time.. ,.. space.. place.. , and.. device.. , and their association with learning, and with the development of a larger environment for learning, here identified as a.. learning space.. Examine how interactions occur between physical and digital learning spaces, and the affordances of such interactions.. Evaluate how adding new dimensions to a learning space can alter the practice of all inhabitants, and in the process, encourage the development of a learning community.. Reflect upon how the spaces we design inform (either unintentionally and intentionally, or both) our learners of the type of learning that is to take place there.. In other words, consider how.. design informs the intent.. Frame how literacy (our overall goal?) is supported by skill development, and how space, both physical and digital, can be created to support that endeavor.. Snapshot.. What kinds of skills should kids be able to exhibit, in the context of 2009? That's a very real question for teachers, and more importantly, schools.. The development of those skills take place in spaces called classrooms.. So, can our current iteration of the typical classroom support the development of literacy skills? What is your current perspective of those classrooms, and how can you extend and expand that perspective into a vision of a learning space, with its own unique characteristics and affordances? How can the characteristics of such a space,.. a learning space.. , contribute to the attainment of those skills? What does it look like, and what are your next steps?.. Let's Get Started..

Questions to consider when considering building learning spaces:.. How would you characterize learning spaces in schools today?.. Do the characteristics of successful physical spaces inform how successful digital spaces are constructed? Are traits transferable?.. What does systemic mean to you?.. What are the key components of a multidimensional learning space?.. What is the relationship/importance of the interactions between formal and informal learning spaces?.. How does the design of the learning space influence the perception of the type of teaching and learning about to take place?.. How can/will you promote informal learning within the context of a virtual learning space?.. How do we rethink the dimensions of learning? Can, and should, learning be independent of time, space, and place, in K-12 education?.. Who are the critical stakeholders that need to be involved in developing a multidimensional learning space?.. What is required for an organization to be ready for the development of a multidimensional learning space?.. Do you believe that social networking is a skill that schools should help students learn and understand? Are there other forms of networking that might be more appropriate? (academic networking, professional networking).. In a digital learning space, what new roles are required? What roles emerge?.. What policies do you have in place to scaffold and support the learning that takes place in these new spaces?.. How will you assess what takes place in the learning space?.. What solution will you build?.. Should students be able to contribute content to the knowledge commons?.. Given those core skills, what attributes run horizontally across all core skills? (for example, adaptability or intellectually curiosity).. How can a learning space support direct instruction, individual learning and collaborative learning?..

  • Title: JakesOnline!-Digital Storytelling 2.0 What's Next
    Descriptive info: Collections.. 0:.. What's next.. In 2009 and beyond, being a learner means being connected, and that means understanding how to develop connections face to face, as well as through online networks.. It is these connections form the basis of a personalized learning network that literally can make learning a 24/7 endeavor that involves co-learners and co-teachers from around the globe.. Central to this ability to learn online, to participate online, is the ability to craft messages that have the potential to impact others.. Schools need to prepare students for a lifetime of storytelling through a variety of media, so that students can have a voice, and a voice that is heard.. One such opportunity for voice lies within the creation of small films, based in personal narrative, called digital stories.. Simply stated, this about voice.. It's about having something to say, and sitting with a computer, to tell the story, and use the affordances of the machine to develop the story within a rich media context, and then distribute that-here is what I have to say, here is what I think, here is my contribution.. That's the power, that's the potential.. At the same time, it's important to not get caught up in what Joe Lambert of the.. Center for Digital Storytelling.. calls Digital Spectacle.. True digital storytelling is grounded in the development of personal stories through narrative, and focuses on developing.. fundamental skills.. such as:.. Writing..

  • Title: JakesOnline!-Communication
    Descriptive info: jol.. 10 Strategies for improving student presentation media.. Introduction:.. In my role as an Instructional Technology Coordinator, I still see large numbers of students and teachers using presentation media in poorly designed ways.. This presentation, and the 10 steps listed on this page, provide a simple framework for improving presentations, and can be taught to high school age students in about 50 minutes.. Moreover, this presentation is more about communicating visually than it is about any kind of presentation software.. THE GOAL:.. this presentation focuses on the content that teachers need to know to be able to teach kids the proper way to communicate visually.. (at least from my perspective).. Slide Deck:.. 10 Strategies for Improving Student Presentation Media.. djakes.. Begin Here:.. Towards a Framework for Visual Literacy Learning.. Then:.. Listen to the presentation.. , featured on the Apple Learning Exchange.. PowerPoint.. del.. us resources.. Visual Literacy.. Brain-based learning.. resources.. 10 Strategies:.. Teach them biology.. Teach them specifically about the brain.. Presentations should be based in an understanding of how people learn, and to do that, students have to understand some simple ideas about the brain.. Set the stage for creating a different type of presentation for explaining the human processing center.. The brain is about 3.. 5 pounds and is composed of around 12 billion cells.. There is some individual variation.. Two critical (at least for presentations) feed the brain.. The eyes and the ears.. The ears are connected to the brain via the auditory nerve.. The eyes are connected to the brain via the optic nerve.. The optic nerve is constructed of about 1 million nerve fibers; the auditory nerve, about 30,000.. There is a tremendous amount of bandwidth associated with the eye, suggesting that presentations should contain a visual component.. Teach them how to make it visual.. Use images to communicate, not decorate.. (.. source.. , Slide 9 and 10).. You can observe a lot by just watching.. Yogi Berra (.. Text is inefficient.. We read five times as fast as a person can talk.. (source).. So.. the upshot.. avoid text-based slides.. Take advantage of the bandwidth the optic nerve provides and the 3.. 5 pound hard-drive that humans have and make the slide deck image-based.. PowerPoint doesn't kill presentations.. bullets do.. Here's what a speaker owes an audience that travels to engage in person: more than they could get by just reading the transcript.. Seth Godin.. Humans have dual processing capability:.. visual.. auditory.. An excellent presentation takes advantage of both and makes connections between them.. Why would you use words on the screen when they do just fine in your mouth?.. Seth Godin (.. Research by Richard Mayer suggests that people learn best with a combination of imagery and text.. This does not mean a slide should be content contained in a bullet list with a piece of clip art stuck in the corner of the slide.. Effective slides contain a high-impact image, usually the size of the entire slide, with a limited, but well chosen amount of text.. The majority of the content associated with the slide is spoken, with the image and the text on the screen in direct support of what the speaker is saying.. Detailed information should not be presented on the screen, but in a printed document.. However, presenters need to consider cognitive load.. Research on instructional design has shown that the presentation medium does not create learning, but the presentation method does affect learning.. (Mayer ____ ).. The..

Several key points to teach kids:.. avoid bullet points (ignore my bullet point list here!).. slides are free, if you have too much content for one, break it into two.. never send Powerpoint to do what a handout is intended to do.. Complex content belongs on paper, not on a screen.. Slide Redesign 1 is.. Overhaul focus:.. Slide Redesign 2 is.. Slide Redesign 3 is.. Seth Godin on the hierarchy of presentations..

What a speaker should be able to do.. | Seth Godin.. 7.. Teach them that color and font choice matter.. Sans-Serif vs Serif fonts.. Serif fonts (Times New Roman, etc.. | See Slide 42 in the above Slide Deck) are used in printed works and contain semi-structural details on the ends of some of the strokes that make up letters and symbols (.. Wikipedia.. The hooks on the letters help the eye travel left to right as one reads.. However, these are not as clear when projected.. Instead, use a Serif font (Arial, Tahoma) that do not contain those elements on the ends of the letters.. These are much easier to read when projected.. This is one of the most simple things students can do to improve their presentations.. Be sure to see.. 52 Fonts.. Color basics.. (Slides 36-54).. The eye sees yellow first..

Don't send a presentation to do a research report's job.. Do the research paper, and do it deeply.. Use it to prepare a storyboard, and convince me of your position.. visually, and with emotion.. 9..
