Generation Why ? Presentation by Dani, Didac, Jaime & Rafael

At work.

Second time the presentation :

The students figured out that there are still borders in europe – even when they are less visible then before. There are two different borders:
– economic boarders
– technological borders – like ICT in school

They also showed, that there is a social gap, that saperates one social class from another
“Digital gap” – there is a difference between those who have access to internet and those who have not

Day 5: Workshop at the University of Liège : building a lesson with “Scenariogramme” ©

Brigitte DENIS - workshop at University of LiegeOn Friday March 14, the IP students went to the University of Liège to meet Brigitte DENIS, teacher and lecturer at the CRIFA (Centre de Recherche sur l’Instrumentation, la Formation et l’Apprentissage). She prepared a workshop about the added value of ICT and social media in teaching. During the first part, the students had to think keywords related to “a task”, “a tool” and “an added value”. During the second part, the students had to build a “Scenariogramme” © : this means linking lesson’s objectives, a methodology (including ICT and social media tools and strategies) and the evaluation of the learning outcomes (with the added value of the ICT and social media tools).

Day five : Using technology for teaching ?

What is a SWOT analysis” by Patrick DEJARNAC (teacher HELMo, Liège-Belgium)
Définition :
A SWOT analysis (alternatively SWOT Matrix) is a structured planning method used to evaluate the strengths, weaknesses, opportunities, and threats involved in a project or in a business venture. A SWOT analysis can be carried out for a product, place, industry or person. It involves specifying the objective of the business venture or project and identifying the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable to achieving that objective. The technique is credited to Albert Humphrey, who led a convention at the Stanford Research Institute (now SRI International) in the 1960s and 1970s using data from Fortune 500 companies. The degree to which the internal environment of the firm matches with the external environment is expressed by the concept of strategic fit. Source : http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/SWOT_analysis

Students have to create a SWOT analysis about the question “Using social media in school?”. See the results on responds

Days six/seven : What have we learn during this week ?

What have we learn during this week ? A « writing » note
During the week-end, the students will have to write an individual note on what they have learned during the first week of the IP and then they’ll have to share and publish it on the IP’s blog.

wpid-page1image256-2014-03-14-09-42.png

Orientation :
1° One element you have learn during this weeks. For next week, take the program and determine one element you will to learn next week.
2° Is the lectures and your works of this week sufficient to not be only on the wave, but to see under the wave to be able to adapt teaching at your generation and at the generation of your students and resolve the actually school (technology) limits ? How ? Why ? If your response is «no», what do you needs? How to obtain it? How to integrate it at your work?
3° What do you think about this sentence :
« A good lesson using technology is at first a good teaching lesson? »
and how you will integrate this dimension next week when you will have to build a lesson using ICT and social media tools (Monday/Tuesday) ?

Some questions you can have in your mind for your work :
One thing positive with this IP Generation Y confronting of your daily formation ?
One thing negative with this IP Generation Y confronting of your daily formation ?
ICT and Media tools : Which are the ICT advantages/disadvantages for the teacher ?
ICT and Media tools : Which are advantages/disadvantages for the students?
Which is the ICT and Media tools place in the lesson? How it can improve it ? When not ?
Which are the differences and similarities compare to old technologies (paper, blackboard, …) ?

How are you doing this work ?
You can write a note (google drive by exemple), doing a video, a prezi or something else and publish the link at a response to this post or respond directly to this post.
