    New Internet Literacies for Educators--BLC '07
    The compelling questions:
    What will our students have to know to succeed in their worlds?
    How do we move our teachers and our schools to prepare those students more effectively for their futures.
    The compelling quote:
    "We have been seduced by our inability to imagine ourselves as superfluous to student learning." Artichoke Blog

    The Trends are Clear:
    Networked--learning and connecting in virtual, passion-based spaces

    The Business World Today--Internally, IBM has 26,000 internal bloggers, 20,000 wikis with 100,000 users, and a social network that is used by over 400,000 full and part time employees. They own 50 islands in Second Life. (Wall Street Journal, June 18, 2007, as summarized here.)

    "I don't have the time." At the end of the day, as an educator, you don't have much choice. You need to make the time, You need to understand these changes for yourselves.
    "I'm scared." You should be. On some level we all are.

    Who can I trust?
    How do I build a learning network? (delicious network explorer)
    What d
    does community mean?
    Are we teaching them to measure authority in new ways, to find other learning opportunities, to build personal learning networks?
    Self-editors
    More of what we consume has no traditional editor
    Martin Luther King.org
    Understanding the network as an editor
    Cult of the Amateur
    Are we helping them understand editing as a natural part of their interaction with information?
    Self-organizers
    Folksonomies
    Tagging and RSS
    Google Reader
    Are we modeling ways to make sense of information, to archive it and recall it?
    Self-reflectors
    Blogging as reflection
    Are we giving them ways to think about their learning?
    Self-publishers
    Can they use the tools?
    Wikipedia--Tucker
    Do they understand the ethics of publishing online?
    Self-regulators
    Are we modeling balance?
    Are we providing strategies for making best use of online time?
    Self-protectors
    The nature of privacy is changing
    "Most Teens 'Not Bothered' by Cyberbullying" Totally Wired"
    So how can we begin to bring these changes and literacies to our students?
    How must our homework change?
    Students need to be participants, creating real work for real purposes for real audiences, even at the youngest levels.
    As Marco Torres says, we need our kids' work to "have wings"
    Those Awesome and Amazing Ants
    International Space Station 07
    First Grade Beach Trip (VoiceThread)
    Flat Classrooms Wiki
    Parents
    So what are the challenges, and how do we overcome them? What are the "Yeah, buts"?
    "We don't have the technology." Talk about and model the uses of these technologies in your own practice as much as you can. Start a conversation about the ways in which you can bring free and open hardware and software to your schools.
    "My supervisor (principal, superintendent, etc.) won't let me do this." Be a beacon for these changes in your own practice, ask for small opportunities to implement.
    "My parents don't want their kids 'out there.'" Teach them why it's important for their students to be using these tools, that they are using them already, that they are not going away, and that they need to understand how to use them safely, effectively and ethically.
    "I have to make sure my kids do well on the test." Make the case that this is not either/or, that the ends can be met through these means and at the same time, the "standards" can be met.
    "I don't have the time." At the end of the day, as an educator, you don't have much choice. You need to make the time, You need to understand these changes for yourselves.
    "I'm scared." You should be. On some level we all are.

    New Internet Literacies for Educators--BLC '07
    The Trends are Clear:
    Networked--learning and connecting in virtual, passion-based spaces
    Taking IT Global
    Hyperconnected--their lives will be lived in a world where connections are ubiquitous
    Hypertransparent--their lives will be lived for everyone else to see
    Collaborative--
    Open--More and more of what we create we share openly, and more of the tools will be open source.
    Creativecommons.org
    The Changes are Significant
    Content is no longer scarce: MIT OpenCourseWare
    Content is constantly changing: Wikipedia
    Our kids understand social technologies more than we do. Business Week Chart
    Technology is rapidly evolving Multitouch Computers
    These are hugely challenging times.
    What homework and classrooms look like today:
    Four walls
    Content based
    The Friday Folder
    Dependent learners
    Externally assessed
    Un-collaborative
    The Business World Today--Internally, IBM has 26,000 internal bloggers, 20,000 wikis with 100,000 users, and a social network that is used by over 400,000 full and part time employees. They own 50 islands in Second Life. (Wall Street Journal, June 18, 2007, as summarized here.)
    The Question: Are our classrooms and our practices preparing kids for the world that they will be facing when they begin their life's work?
    The "literacies" that they will require are much more complex.
    {http://farm2.static.flickr.com/1300/634302648_b1663f1a60_m.jpg} Our students are entering a world where they will be expected to be:
    Self-learners
    The US Dept. of Education estimates that by the time they reach 38, our kids will have changed jobs over a dozen times. Source
    Who will teach them?
    Are we teaching them to be lifelong, continual learners?
    Self-starters
    Passion-based learning
    "This is a world where if you are not doing it, someone else will." --Friedman
    The Sam Jackson College Experience
    Are we teaching them to generate their own projects, to take control of their own learning? (They can, you know.)
    Self-selectors in terms of building their own personal, perpetual learning networks
    Who are my teachers?
    Who or what defines an "expert"?
    Who can I trust?
    How do I build a learning network? (delicious network explorer)
