Who is in my classroom? classroom • Who lives in my house? Francis Whiting story • What kind of teachers are in your classroom? • Write on a page with two columns - one for notes and one for Writing “What kind of teacher is in my classroom? ” #edc 3100 There is a constructionist teacher in my classroom who lets children be active builders of their own intellectual ideas and problems. #edc 3100 There is a behaviourist teacher in my classroom who reinforces basic skills.

What is learning? Learning as a Change - Change in one’s ability or knowledge. Learning is measured by an amount of change that occurs with an individuals knowledge, performance or behaviour. Seems like a better framework Expert verses novice behaviour. Learning with and through technology. A problematic statement Text pages 112 -128
Behaviourism • Shape behaviour through stimulus and response – drill and practice software • Learning requires small progressive steps – tutorials • Behaviour of learners can be seen and measured. Computer based testing?
Instructivism • 9 steps from “Gaining attention, informing learner of objective. Recall of prior learning, presenting new material, providing guidance , elicit performance etc • Sequential and clear instructions • Tutorials
Constructivism • Working on authentic problems • Often collaborative • Active engagement of the learner - sense of adding to previous knowledge and experience • Learning is a personal journey • Simulations, problem solving, project planning and management
Constructionism • Active builders of intellectual structures • Construct things that can be used again as building blocks • Lego, logo, programming, Sims games • Organising socio technical networks • Some say Constructivism + technology = constructionism
Connectivism • Chaotic connections more like a network of people and ideas • Decisions based on a changing state – new information, new ideas, constantly shifting ideas and subject matter and how it is interpreted • Technology enables the learning. • Web-based learning and network learning.
Other frameworks • What types of teachers are in your classroom? • What types of pedagogy is in your classroom? What seems common to all frameworks in your text are • Authentic tasks • Experiential learning #edc 3100 • Social learning and sharing ICT and • Learning phases as expertise grows Pedagogy FB Page Seems like ICT rich ideas fit
My online event or activity idea:
Choose a small but significant area from the Australian Curriculum which could be the context for an online event. Select an online event or activity idea. Use the TPACK model to make notes about the idea, clearly articulating the learning goals and pedagogical suggestions in the national curriculum documents, as well as your learning goals and pedagogical decisions. Make notes on the technical tools you need and what qualities of the tools enable your event to be useful to students and meet curriculum goals. Make notes on the qualities of the event design that meet your needs and note any potential online strategies you might use. What curriculum skills/knowledge? What Digital literacy/citizenship skills/knowledge?
A brief outline of a curriculum idea involving an online event • The context – about the class, its age level, access to computers in the classroom etc • The key idea in a short paragraph or a couple of sentences • Describe the curriculum goals. Lists are fine • Describe the event • List or describe the technology tools used online • Briefly outline the core activity sequence • A description of the product students will develop.
Extent barometer • Is it a good curriculum idea? • Suggest how creative/innovative or intriguing the idea is. • Would it engage students? • Make a suggestion to improve the idea.
