#MACUL18 – Putting Learning First, Technology Second

Putting Learning First, Technology Second

Liz Kolb, Clinical Associate Professor, University of MichiganGrand Gallery A (DeVos)

Notes:

  • PearDeck Slide Code: huuan
  • It all started in 1996 with… PowerPoint!
  • Technology can grab attention but does it change understanding and learning?
  • How do you know if #edtech is effective in your classroom?
  • What does engagement mean and what does it look like in your classroom?

  • How can we make learning experiences… authentic with high attention and high commitment.
  • What do we know about how students learn best? What does the research say?
  • Reflection – thinking about what they are doing/experiencing, teaching others, discovery-based, real-world application, when they are challenged and in the zone of proximal development, repetition, interactive, hands-on, inquiry-based
  • Use caution with “educational” apps as there really isn’t criteria for what makes an app educational in category. Many software companies don’t have an experienced educator on the team.
  • Learning with #edtech should be about quality not quantity.
  • One research study indicated purposeful and blended approaches seem to be better than “every day”

  • Wowzers Video
  • What distracts students from learning? What is distracting in the Wowzers video?
  • USF Video
  • What is beneficial about the USF video? Collaborative, it wasn’t about the technology but it supports the learning.
  • Learning is SOCIAL!

  • Shared experiences are important vs being together and isolated experiences.
  • Technology provides formative opportunities for feedback through data measurement.
  • Engagement is social > time on task > and focus so that tech should not distract from the process of learning.
  • Learning happens when tools illicit higher-cognitive skills.
  • Learning happens best when it’s connected to everyday life with classroom learning.
  • Key to success when integrating technology is the teacher’s use of instructional strategies and pedagogical strategies when integrating digital technologies, not the tool itself.
  • Triple E Framework
