COVID-19 changed everything! Technology can no longer be ignored. Learning can now go BEYOND the bounds of the school walls, beyond subject and grade, beyond digital tools as substitution, beyond the due date, and even beyond the school day. Let’s learn how to make blended learning meaningful and DYNAMIC!
|Audience:||Coaches, Professional developers, Technology coordinators/facilitators|
|Attendee devices:||Devices not needed|
|ISTE Standards:||For Coaches:
Teaching, Learning and Assessments
|Additional detail:||Session recorded for video-on-demand|
Participants will understand the DNA of the Dynamic Learning Framework and
how to push the boundaries of traditional learning, and create dynamic, blended learning experiences.
Participants will learn how design effective dynamic learning experiences using a
multitude of practical ideas, transformative practices, ISTE standards for students,
and digital tools to support transformative learning in big and small ways.
Participants will be able to plan a dynamic learning experience using provided
template and tips and submit to a publicly shared lesson plan database.
Participants will walk away with additional technology integration tips, tricks, and
resources to support Dynamic Learning.
Overview and introductions
- What is Dynamic Learning (THINK blended learning on steroids!)
- Static Learning v. Dynamic Learning
- The Dynamic Learning Model and Framework
- Essential components
- Dynamic Learning Characteristics
- Beyond the Bell: Learning doesn't have to end when the bell rings. With digital
tools and devices that are available 24/7, students can continue to learn,
collaborate, grow, and dig deeper into their learning on their own terms. This
doesn't mean homework. This is a mindset for students that means that learning
can take place anytime, anywhere and students can own it.
- Beyond the Bell examples
- Beyond the Due Date: Consider allowing students to continue the work that
interests them beyond the final assessment of the assignment or task. Thinking,
learning, exploring, shouldn't be stifled simply because it was time to turn it in.
- Beyond the due date examples
- Beyond the Subject Area and Grade Level: Let's take kids off the conveyor belt
of education and give them opportunities to learn about the things that interest
them beyond the subject areas we teach and even beyond what it says they
should learn in each grade level. Learning doesn't have to fit inside a box.
- Beyond the subject and grade examples
- Beyond the Walls: Bring the world to your students and bring your students to
the world! Every student in every grade should have opportunities to connect and
learn globally as well as publish their work for a global and intentional audience.
- Beyond the walls examples
- Beyond the Tool: Think beyond using digital tools to do traditional things, like
typing a paper. Use digital tools to do NEW things! Just going paperless or digital
isn't enough, use tools to go further, deeper and extend the learning, and
consider using tools in alternative ways--beyond their original purpose.
