Our connected world Our connected classrooms Considerations when connecting These are the three main areas that will be focused on during this keynote.

Our connected world

How Twitter can make history Clay Shirky’s TED talk This video by Clay Shirky gives an overview of how the internet has changed the way people can interact. Clay Shirky

Connected World Case Study - Iran Election Iran Election

We witnessed police spraying pepper gas into the eyes of peaceful female protesters Once again I thank everyone in the world. No matter if Ahmadi stays or not, I'm proud to have clasped such supportive hands. Tens of thousands of protestors are chanting "No fear, No fear, we are with each other". Twitter gave the people within an Iran a voice that couldn’t be controlled by the state. Iran Election

Three days later The internet also has the power to bring people together to take collective action for Iran Iran Election

School In a connected world, schools can’t afford to ignore the possibilities the internet now delivers. World

Schools need to make connections beyond the classroom walls and experience the power of bringing the world into the classroom. World School

Our connected classrooms

The series of slides that follow are all examples of ways schools are connecting based around the key competencies. There is a hyperlink to take you to the online example being demonstrated at the bottom of each of the slides.

Using language, symbols and texts Students recognise how choices of language, symbol, or text affect people’s understanding and the ways in which they respond to communications. They confidently use ICT (including, where appropriate, assistive technologies) to access and provide information and to communicate with others.

Community Rights Inquiry Wiki Buckland Beach Intermediate Bucklands Beach Intermediate Community Rights inquiry wiki The pupils analyse local issues and each group decides to take an area of study for their inquiry topics related to homelessness.

Action Plan We found out that the Auckland City Mission always has a need for good quality items. We have arranged for blanket bins to be put around the school with our DP and will go onto our school TV programme to explain. The next three slides are a summary of what one group had on their inquiry wiki.

Timeline Draft a letter to the Auckland City Council 3rd Sept 5th Sept Receive a reply from the council (included) 6th Sept Go onto the school Daily Broadcast to talk about the project and bins. 7th Sept Check bins. Ask if this can be announced again in assembly. Ask fabric teacher if we can borrow sewing machines to make blankets. Team member to ask businesses to donate material.

Ongoing Teacher Comments You have done a really good job at getting started on this. Your brainstorm identifies some important issues that obviously have to be addressed. You may like to look at this in a little more detail... 20.8.07 30.8.07 It was good working with your group today. You are all on task and you have a clear idea of what you are doing and how to develop your plan of action. You may want to use a flow chart for this... 7.09.07 Your letter asking for sponsorship of fabric was well written. I am very proud of you all. Keep up the good work.

Children’s Reflective Log I think our wiki is going well on the first day with all members contributing. 20th Aug 27th Aug I think that our wiki is going well, but we ha to change some of our questions. Everyone is contributing and adding to our wiki. 7th Sept We are really getting into our work. Our planning is all finished and we can finally get down to some action. 18th Sept Today’s action went extremely well! We learned heaps and the ACM were very pleased with our donations.

Relating to Others Students who relate well to others are open to new learning and able to take different roles in different situations. They are aware of how their words and actions affect others. They know when it is appropriate to compete and when it is appropriate to co-operate.

Cyber citizenship Working with students to develop rules and guidelines for working online is an important part of being a connected classroom.

Blog Rules 1.  Never post anything personal .  No last names, phone numbers, addresses or birthdays.      2.  Always use appropriate language ; after all, this is still a school activity! 3.  Respect your classmates and their ideas.  Just like in class, we never put people down.  If you disagree, do so with respect and kindness. Cyber citizenship St Andrew’s Middle School DigiMax 09 blog

4.   Best spellings  are required.  This is not myspace!  Spell out words as correctly as you can and try to use proper punctuation. Go back and 'Edit Entry' later if you realise there is a mistake, or someone else mentions it to you. 5.  Practice, practice, practice .  For the rest of your life you will be expected to use computers.  If you are not used to it yet, that is okay!  You are allowed to make mistakes and you are allowed to ask for help.  Just keep practicing! 6. In classtime you may only write posts . Save the comment writing and the changing of screen settings for at home.

There are now new areas for interaction online such as purpose designed virtual worlds where students can interact with the world and each other to complete challenges while learning along the way.

Considerations when connecting ?

Many people consider the ‘internet predator’ as the main threat but this isn’t borne out by research. Schools should still take precautions but should also focus on issues that are increasingly becoming more important such as cyberbullying and other ethical considerations.

 

The next slide is a summary of some of the thinking on Dorothy Burt’s blog around making sure any use of online tools is purposeful and keeps the learning needs of students at the forefront.

Why work online at all? Write an action plan with learning outcomes at the top for you and leaders Can visitors to your space tell from the home page what the purpose is? http://manaiakalani.blogspot.com / Dorothy Burt’s Blog

Why work online at all?

Write an action plan with learning outcomes at the top for you and leaders

Can visitors to your space tell from the home page what the purpose is?

The next slide shows the normal process a school goes through when considering internet safety issues. While this goes some way to addressing issues, there are other ethical considerations that schools should discuss and create policies around before going ‘online’ and these are addressed in the rest of the slides in this section.

We need to ensure we have considered internet safety in our school Visit Netsafe and download sample policies and permission forms. Adapt for our school and get forms signed: First names only Photos with permission No other personal details published

Ethical Issues for when working online Based on a forum post by Russell Burt and republished online with permission at: http://learningweb2.wikispaces.com/Important+considerations

Issue One: Place of online tools within school learning framework

A teacher goes to an e-learning conference and learns about blogging in education

Board of Trustees We weren’t aware of that. We’ll shut it down while we look into it. School management She returns and starts a blog but a parent isn’t happy about this and complains to the who ask for information from

The blog is removed while the school looks at the issues. The teacher, who started off being very enthusiastic is now demotivated and upset at the outcome.

How could this outcome have been improved for all involved? Discussion Point

Issue One: Possible ways forward

“ Any online work should be part of an intentional, well designed school development that has included the consideration of ethical education for the 21st century and the ethical responsibilities of the various members of the learning community. Management should be informed and there should be well thought out accountability internally” Russell Burt

Senior staff Staff working with children online Awareness Management Communication Consultation

You also need to work with the school community and may need to start with a more ‘locked down’ model if that is what they are comfortable with. Through education and consultation you can move forward with the community alongside. Dorothy Burt’s has a blog post about the different types of school community which is linked to on the next slide.

The 'walled garden' community The 'go-fer-it' community The 'yes - but' community http://manaiakalani.blogspot.com / Dorothy Burt’s Blog

The 'walled garden' community

The 'go-fer-it' community

The 'yes - but' community

Issue Two: Age restrictions on online tools

A teacher goes to an e-learning conference and learns about setting up a Wetpaint wiki

Account Account Account Account Account Account She sets up an account for herself and has each student set up an account so she track who is editing the wiki.

13 years + Then a parent points out the the students are too young to set up an account (according to the terms and conditions of Wetpaint) All student accounts have be be deleted and the teacher puts wikis into the ‘too hard’ basket

How could this outcome have been improved for all involved? Discussion Point

Issue Two: Possible ways forward

Teacher account The teacher is the account holder and logs students in to work on the wiki.

Teacher subscribes through RSS to all comments and additions to the site in order to monitor changes

Issue Three: Ownership and life span of online materials

A teacher sets up a blog everyone is happy and

The teacher leaves the school

Login details ? But the school does not have the login for the blog.

The content relating to that student is still online. The school has no access to remove it and the teacher is no longer blogging and doesn’t visit it.

H a H H a a The content is found by a fellow student at high school. Today I learned to work well with boys.

Check out what this loser from our high school posted online when she was at primary school!! And is distributed by social networks and cell phone Today I learned to work well with boys. Today I learned to work well with boys.

Or the student could want the content removed for other reasons as the author of what is posted online but there is no way for them to have it removed.

How could this outcome have been improved for all involved? Discussion Point

Issue Three: Possible ways forward

[email_address] Teacher account Dual account holder Require teachers to set up classroom accounts using their school emails and have passwords on file. Have a dual account holder from senior management.

Decide as a staff at which point content posted online about students will be taken down and make sure that this policy is followed.

Issue Four: Professional vs private Privacy vs public

The following slides are examples of issues that can arise when the line is crossed between personal and professional.

13 NZ teachers deregistered in 2008 Teachers had little understanding of professional boundaries. Many of them began inappropriate relationships as a result of text messaging

Teacher under investigation Teacher updated Twitter with up to 30 messages a day discussing her pupils. May 2009

Teacher suspended for Facebook photo Teacher suspended after photos of her with weapons (legal) appeared on her profile page Feb 2009

Young teacher advised on Facebook Christchurch teacher had students asking to be his friend on Facebook. Advised that this stretches boundaries and could be dangerous July 2008

Four dio girls suspended Four students stood down for making derogatory comments on Facebook about a teacher and a student. School said it had a huge responsibility to educate girls on acceptable communication. June 2009

Where should the lines be drawn? Should teachers and students be entitled to put what they want on their personal online spaces? Discussion Point

Issue Four: Possible ways forward

Have discussions with staff and with students and create approriate policies

Issue Five: Keeping it real How do we help students understand the importance of identity and what personas are appropriate to use in online contexts? Issue Six: Anonymity Online When is it appropriate to be anonymous and when is it potentially harmful? Not explored in-depth in this keynote

Issues Risks 21stC Connected Confident The benefits outweigh the downsides if policies are in place.

So let’s not do continue to do things in old ways when we can be using new technologies to revolutionise teaching and learning. 15th Century Email YouTube Video
