Proposal summary

Purpose & objective

In this session, participants will focus on the concept of knowledge constructor through the exploration of a real-world issue. Learners will develop ideas, reflect on their instructional design practices, and dialogue about best practices through the use of Google Forms. By the end of this session, learners will have designed a lesson that gives them the opportunity to capture student thought process, and enable them to facilitate a learning experience that promotes reflection and construction of knowledge.

As a result of this session, participants will leverage digital resources to demonstrate competency by: learning to use effective research strategies to locate information and resources; evaluate the accuracy, perspective and credibility of information; design information from digital resources using tools and methods to demonstrating meaning or connections or conclusions; and building knowledge by actively exploring real-world issues and problems

Outline

This workshop includes three parts: 1st gain a deeper understanding of Knowledge Constructor, 2nd experience what is like to be a Knowledge Constructor, 2nd create their own lesson experience that promotes reflection and construction of knowledge.

1. LAUSD Background

2. Content and Activities
During this session participants will Experience learning from the student perspective, Explore and Create their own lesson, and Share.

3. Inclusion Activity: What’s in a name

4. Capture your Thinking: Know/Think I know/ Want to Know about being a knowledge constructor

5. Guiding Question: “How do we build knowledge by actively exploring real world issues and problems, developing ideas and theories and pursuing answers and solutions?” -ISTE

6. ISTE Overview: The ISTE Standards for Students provide a framework for learning in-depth, digital age skills and attributes with learning that is amplified through technology. Each standard emphasizes pedagogy enhanced with technology to support all learners in engaging and thriving in a connected, digital world. The reward, however, will be educators who skillfully mentor and inspire students to amplify learning with technology and challenge them to be agents of their own learning. Today we will focus on Knowledge Constructor and the indicators, while learning the google tools being mindful of these standards as we go through the presentation.

7. Article Review and Discussion: Participants select one of two articles they want to read and annotate using the Protocal: 1 Agree, 1 Argue, and 1 Aspire

8. Experience: Participants will experience three tasks leveraging Google Forms: These tasks emphasizes the College and Career Readiness experience with a focus on the process.
Task 1:This activity illustrates how we might engage learners in forming and capturing thoughts through the analysis of data.
Task 2: This activity illustrates how we might engage learners in analyzing visual text, a quote, and revisit prior data to support your thinking
Task 3: This activity illustrates how we might engage learners in analyzing excerpts

9. Concentric Circle: Why is citing evidence significant to student learning? What relationship do you see between Knowledge Constructor and TPACK?

10. Participants will Explore and create their own lesson experience that promotes reflection and construction of knowledge.

11. Gallery Walk: participants begin at their device and walk around the room. As they walk and view each other's forms.
