By Mike King & Jesse West Designing Highly Engaging Digital Lessons

Conceptual Age:

Pink has created a reference for us to consider right brain activities. Design, story, symphony, empathy, play and meaning. According to Pink, “Artists, inventors, designers, storytellers, caregivers, consolers, big-picture thinkers – will reap society’s richest rewards and share its greatest joys”. Conceptual Age

Introducing The Digital Native The Net Generation Video Hyperlink

Digital Natives, The Net Generation Marc Prensky Digital Natives Digital Immigrants ©2001 :

Our students have changed radically. Today’s students are no longer the people our educational system was designed to teach. They represent the first generations to grow up with technology. The Net Generation as Learners Today’s average college grads have spent less than 5,000 hours of their lives reading, but over 10,000 hours playing video games. Computer games, email, the Internet, cell phones and instant messaging are integral parts of their lives. Digital Natives, The Net Generation Marc Prensky Digital Natives Digital Immigrants ©2001

Rethinking Education:

Digital Immigrant instructors , who speak an outdated language (that of the pre-digital age), are struggling to teach a population that speaks an entirely new language. Digital Immigrant teachers assume that learners are the same as they have always been, and that the same methods that worked for the teachers when they were students will work for their students now. But that assumption is no longer valid. Rethinking Education

What Should Change?:

What Should Change? Education should focus on the student , interact with students, customize individual ways of learning, and encourage collaboration . Video Hyperlink

Designing Highly Engaging Digital Lessons The Tra-Digital Way :

Designing Highly Engaging Digital Lessons The Tra -Digital Way Video Hyperlink

Now what is tra-digital? :

Tra -digital is the capturing of effective instructional practices and applying those practices to high engaging digital tools that are integrated to fit different modalities of learning. Now what is tra -digital?

What if:

What if you could tap into those modalities of learning to keep your students highly engaged by literally speaking the same language as your students? Modality is a preference to leaning Visual Auditory Kinesthetic

What if:

What if your teaching and learning design closed the gap between your world and your students’ quickly and naturally every time? What if you could design lessons that captured students’ learning styles, tapped into their array of intelligences, unleashed their motivation and did it tra -digitally?

PowerPoint Presentation:

What if you always design ed your lessons with three elements in mind? Modality Chunked Review Next we will look at a few digital lessons that have been designed with these three elements in mind.

PowerPoint Presentation:

Avatars can be used when designing a digital lesson as a way of interacting with students . When incorporating avatars into a lesson they can be used to define terms, give directions to activities or reinforced content . Avatars can be integrated into a presentation Most avatars are known as “bots” and are powered by Natural Language Processing .

Crazy Talk Avatars:

Crazy Talk Avatars With Crazy Talk teachers can make famous historical people come to life as funny talking and animated characters. Students can demonstrate their many talents in design and digital storytelling through unique and creative works made with their own narrations and voiceovers.

I Clone Avatars:

I Clone Avatars I Clone software allows for character creation for digital lesson design, in multiple ways to increase lesson depth. Through the unique features of 3D movie making software; content expression can be brought to life by incorporating historical characters . History teachers can introduce the exploration of Christopher Columbus through an early explorers narrative; science content of the planetary system can be explained by Albert Einstein and a Samurai Warrior can bring the travels along the Silk Road to life all through 3D characterization.

Incorporating Videos:

Video resource clips that can be incorporated into a lesson such as illustrating different parts of a volcano. Incorporating Videos Demonstrating A Model Short video clips can also be used to illustrate a model or diagram; giving in-depth definitions and concept development through multi-media presentations.

The site has an, easy-to-grasp interface and customizable embeddable player.

Experience Creates Mental Questions:

Why? How? What? Experience Creates Mental Questions Experience should create emotional engagement which in turn creates a mental question such as: When the experience of a lesson creates question marks have students, bookmark it , bind it and tag it through social bookmarking activities.

Social Bookmarking Resources :

Social Bookmarking Resources Delicious : Delicious as an educational tool is in making  bookmarks accessible to other students in a learning community, and makes everyone else’s bookmarks available to those who are invited to join the learning community.   Live Binders : is  a way for students to bookmark and showcase WebPages in a categorical format  using tabs to organize web url's . The user can select a broad topic category like “Bunker Hill" designed to help students organize sub categories around the Revolutionary War through the use of tabs. By ‘tagging’ your bookmarks with brief one or two word descriptors, enables a search to be conducted across the entire site for bookmarks others have labeled with similar interest. Link Video Link

Digital Storytelling as an Effective Learning Tool for Students :

Digital Literacy Global Literacy Technology Literacy Visual Literacy Information Literacy Digital Storytelling as an Effective Learning Tool for Students 

Digital tools that allow students and teachers to articulate stories the tra-digital way.:

Story" is not just about story telling but about listening to stories and being a part of stories. We were all born storytellers (and "story listeners"). As kids we looked forward to "show and tell" and we gathered with our friends at recess and at lunchtime and told stories about real things and real events that mattered, at least they mattered to us . Digital tools that allow students and teachers to articulate stories the tra -digital way .

PowerPoint Presentation:

Digital story telling combines the conversion of written narrative to digital voiceovers that is aided by computer tools. What Is a Digital Story? Point of View A Dramatic Question Emotional Content The Gift of your Voice The Power of the Soundtrack Economy Pacing

Stories that Support Content:

How do teachers design lessons as a series of collective stories, what stories are being told by the teacher or student to draw interest to content? How can we give students a more empowering story to focus on the importance of learning? Would a student know and understand concepts through story development and expression when they walk out of the classroom door? Stories that Support Content Digital story on Marquis James was an American journalist and author, twice awarded the Pulitzer Prize.

Using A Taxonomy to Transform Characters in Story:

Level Kind Explanation 1 Knowledge Character knows, remembers, or describes something. 2 Comprehension Character explains, interprets, predicts something. 3 Application Character discovers, constructs, or changes something; applies understanding to a new situation. 4 Analysis Character deconstructs a situation, distinguishes between options, plans or organizes something, compares and contrast different things. 5 Synthesis Character pieces together parts to form a new understanding of a situation. 6 Evaluation Character assesses a situation, critiques and/or defends an idea, person; evaluates a situation in order to respond to it. Using A Taxonomy to Transform Characters in Story What will we emulate within the learning structure? How can we take the concept of Bloom's affective taxonomy to the next level?

PowerPoint Presentation:

Digital Storytelling refers to using new digital tools to help people to tell their own real-life stories. Photostory3 is a free Microsoft production tool that can be used to organize digital photos along an event’s timeline that allows digital creators the ability to add transitions, motion, sound, and titles, to a production.

The script is a specially prepared narration that allows the viewers to hear and see a presentation in a creative format. Through 3D Avatar characterization students can animate facial expressions and head movements while narrating a script. Web Cam Avatars

Creative Commons Images:

“Now here is a one rule- that the media files you use in your story have to be ones that are licensed or shared with permission to re-use; this is the only way you can safely share your new creation by knowing it does not contain any copyrighted material plus it is just darn human courtesy to give credit where the creation came from. So just finding a picture via Google is not satisfactory. For each media file you find, as you search, be sure to document the source by title and URL and find a person or organization to give credit.” Creative Commons Images

Image Editors:

Editing photos before placing into a digital story, need not require expensive software such as Photoshop or other desktop applications. A number of free photo editing tools have begun to appear online; that allow personal photos to be imported and exported from ones computer. Image Editors

Sound Resources:

  American Rhetoric (famous speeches) Freeplay Music´s FindSounds.com Nature Songs PodSafe Audio MIDIMART.NET Partners In Rhyme Soundzabound Royalty Free Music Sound Resources

Royalty Free Music:

Royalty Free Music The person using the work of music must be for non-profit or educational purposes; The copyrighted work must be suitable for educational use, criticism, research or other non-revenue-generating uses; The work must not be used in its entirety or presented in its entirety without adding any commentary or supplemental educational material; The use of the music work must not alter the value or accessibility of the work to others purchasing or paying royalty fees for commercial use of the work.

Timelines of Historical Events:

Timeline Makers are traditionally used to explore the life of an individual or the events of a particular period. You could also use them to explore the day in the life of a person, create a story or track a historical event. In some tools you can attach pictures, text and video so why not use a Timeline Maker to make a presentation rather than PowerPoint. As always care should be taken to check the appropriateness of the material on display when using public websites. Timelines of Historical Events

New World Collaboration:

Do students ever discuss content with peers and how often do they discuss topics outside of the classroom ? Is the classroom an exciting intellectual environment where topics are mirrored ? How does the classroom allow for students to make additional connections so that the student can be further immersed in using and exploring information and understanding of concepts outside of the classroom environment? Is the content of schooling compartmentalized and separated from cross curriculum unit development and technology-based project learning strategies? New World Collaboration

Collaboration Study Tools:

Education in the Conceptual Age The Collaborative Way A Rising Power to New Mediums of Web 2.0-Based Education:

Education in the Conceptual Age The Collaborative Way A Rising Power to New Mediums of Web 2.0-Based Education Due to deep changes in technology, education is entering a new age where students can participate in their own expansion of knowledge like never before. In fact the MySpace generation is the largest online community in the world, where over 100 million young people hangout daily.

Meaning through Collaboration:

The greatest meaning of all comes from our relationships . The relationships that we have with our work individually, the relationships that we have with our co-workers and the relationships that we have with our students and parents. Few things can be more rewarding than connecting with someone, with teaching something new , or sharing that which you feel is very important with others. Where is the “meaning” in the work that your students do everyday? How do you share knowledge in your classroom; is it global or is it contained? Meaning through Collaboration

Project Based Learning:

Project-based learning is a model for classroom activity that shifts away from the classroom practices of short, isolated, teacher-centered lessons and instead emphasizes learning activities that are long-term, interdisciplinary, student-centered , and integrated with real world issues and practices. Project Based Learning

Project-Based Learning:

Creates a "driving question" that is anchored in a real-world problems and uses multiple content areas. Gives opportunities for students to make active investigations enabling them to learn concepts, apply information, and represent their knowledge in a variety of ways. Provides collaboration among students, teachers, and others in Web 2.0 environments so that knowledge can be shared and distributed between the members of a "learning community" Establishes the use of cognitive tools in the learning environment. Students represent their ideas using Web 2.0 tools. Project-Based Learning

Ways to Design Highly Engaging Digital Lessons The Collaborative Way:

Ways to Design Highly Engaging Digital Lessons The Collaborative Way As educators, we need to be thinking about how to teach in the language of the Digital Natives .

Empathy and Social Networking:

Empathy means that everyone makes an appreciated contribution to a network of creative learning. Empathy is creating collaborative learning opportunities through social networks. Why are social networks so addicting? Because people like to interact and know that their contributions are being discussed and appreciated. Teachers need to instruct and apply the educational benefits and ethics of social networking. Empathy and Social Networking

Empathy:

Empathy is about the ability to be present. To be in the now. Unfortunately, so many of us are running so hard it is a difficult thing to accomplish whether at work or at home. Successful teachers insure that their primary job is to “make students feel good about themselves”. Teachers need to work diligently at “finding the good in every child”. How does your classroom make students feel good about themselves? Empathy

Content Building Digital Libraries:

Content Building Digital Libraries Teachers and students who create, digital activities can then be engaged in an important role in demonstrating the practical and effective uses of interactive technology resources in both teaching and learning. For teachers, digital content libraries will offer access to a broad array of combining interdisciplinary content into a complete seamless learning experience.
