This article from Tech & Learning got me to thinkin'. (That is not so easy at this point in the semester.) .

The author, Daniel Rezac, discusses the issue of teachers "hogging" the interactive whiteboard in their classrooms. Students rarely get to touch them.

"Think of it: how often did teachers let students actually write on the chalk board? The overhead projector? The fact is, there's only one Interactive White Board per classroom, and there may be 25 or more students. There is never going to be enough time in one class period to let everyone have-at-it on the white board. Nobody ever heard of a 1-1 white board environment. That would be awfully expensive. Maybe we're going about this all wrong."

Rezac is not all talk. He actually offeres up some solutions for this "hogging" issue.

On the Eighth Floor, we are all about the integration of technology. It's what we do. I wonder if we are sometimes so focused on the teacher that we forget about the student. And by that I ALSO mean, I wonder if we are forgetting to let our Eighth Floor students "touch the board."

When we say “Online Class” – What does that mean to you?

Eight Floor Moodle Site
There are so many possibilities for the structure and format of a class, both online and face-to-face. When it comes to the Eighth Floor, you pretty much know that when you come to a class, you will likely sit at a computer and participate in active learning. Some of our classes are closer to a lecture/workshop format, but most are hands on a computer. But what about an online class? Besides knowing you are going to use your own computer, what do you think you are going to do in a class that meets online?

Although we have been offering the Online Learning Series for several years (a class that teaches teachers to teach online), we have just begun offering some new regular Eighth Floor classes online, such as Grant Writing 2, Crash Course in Copyright, Cyberbullying, Strategies and Tools for Delivering Online Content, and a new one for spring, Building Learning Communities. We are finding that each person comes with his or her own expectations and that is probably because no one knows exactly what to expect. Fair enough. Online learning is still in its “pre-teen-hood,” so there is room for variety, change, and growth still to come. Many of our consortium members have not taken an online class before, and some who have did not take very good ones. That means many people are not familiar with this kind learning environment. Again, fair enough. Let’s talk about it.

We like to think we have the whole teaching/learning online thing down. The reality is we learn something new with every attempt to teach an online class – just like we did when we were new to the F2F classroom.

We have decided on a general format for our Eighth Floor online classes.

  • Most online classes earn 12 hours of professional development. We design our classes to be about a week and a half long since we figure most people can find about an hour a day to participate in the class (this would be equal to attending a six – ten hour F2F class).
  • We want participants to be active participants in their own learning – it’s best that way!  
  • Classes are meant to be interactive – NOT self-paced. That means you will be involved in class discussions and projects.
  • We try to provide a variety of information. This gives participants the opportunity to explore the topic further or drill deeper depending on their interests.
  • We try to keep content delivery simple and concise.
  • To earn a certificate of completion, participants need only participate with interest in all discussions or activities for that class – you can usually count on a new topic every couple of days.
  • We try to make sure participants have 2-3 days to complete each discussion or activity.
For some people, this sounds like a big time commitment – really, it’s not! Do the math. What it is is an opportunity to learn at your own speed but at the same time as others so that there is an exchange of information and resources. This allows for a real learning community!

Moodle Meets the Eighth Floor!

We are using our own Moodle site now for our learning management system. . Having our own Moodle site means we can share! If you are interested in testing or holding a class or course component for your students in our Eighth Floor Sandbox, let me know.

The Eighth Floor is Building a Cyber Cafe

The Eighth Floor is building a cyber cafĂ©. Scott has been chronicling the construction progress on our Ning site. Check out the pictures. It should be finishce by the start of classes on September 20th. We are pretty excited about it, but I bet you are saying, “What does that really mean and how is this good for me?” Good questions! And, guess what? I have some good answers.

What does this really mean?

We won’t be serving lattes or muffins, but you can always find coffee on The Eighth Floor and sometimes Norma brings in some amazing baked goods she is more than happy to share. You will have a place to enjoy our epic view of Tulsa. You will be able to work on a laptop at a counter in a comfortable chair that Norma took great care in picking out. (She test drove A LOT of chairs!) You will be able to visit with others, either from your school or other districts or learning levels. Essentially, you can just hang out. You might even see an impromptu technology slam. (Are you trying to imagine what that would look like? Geeks don’t write poetry.)

Why is this good for me?

Okay, so, why is just hanging out good for you? On the surface it may seem like wasting time. But assuming that would be a mistake. Consider what you know about
informal learning. In my estimation, this is where the lion’s share of learning happens – between the lines of formal /structured education. I have seen more problems solved, more ideas shared in the 2 minutes at the end of a break than sometimes in a whole day of “class.” Some call this just in time learning. In a culture where we want only the information we need when we need it, what better place to throw together an on-the-spot learning community.

And I care about learning communities because . . . .

The Eighth Floor is the perfect hub for your professional learning communities. Notice I said “communities” – plural. The reality is we can’t survive with just one learning community anymore, the one that for many teachers only consisted of the other teachers in your hallway or those who office around you. Now, you can create communities online for your whole school, your district, your state, for a specific subject, specific project . . . you get the idea. We have been relying on learning communities (or networks) all our lives. So really, we have been relying on informal learning all our lives. Learning communities might even be more important than food. Go ahead. Try to get through a day without a single instance of informal learning.

Please don’t starve yourself or vow to spend the entire day interacting with only inanimate objects. Just trust me on this one and come up the Eighth Floor and simply hang out. It is quite possible you will learn something.

Best Summer Ever!

I must say, this has been a very good summer at the Eighth Floor...and it's not even over yet.  We've seen 1000+ teachers, support staff, and administrators roll through our offices since the Summer session began.  The virtual email bag was bursting at the seams with enrollments.  As a result, we had to add offerings in August to accomodate the load.  With less than two weeks left in the session, we are looking at a record attendance for the consortium.

Out of this group we have seen many returning (we don't want to say old, do we) faces and new.  The Eighth Floor has welcomed many new districts into the fold this Summer.  You may have noticed this when you turned to the teacher next to you in a class.  The result of this is that many of you were able to network with old and new friends and in the process gain knowledge from not only what we have to offer, but from each other.  In my opinion, informal learning is a very beneficial part of the experience here.  Regardless of whether you are a K-12, Tech, or Higher Ed educator, there is always something new to learn from your peers. 

Hopefully, this summer has been a chance for many of you to re-charge.  I remember taking classes before I became an instructor with the Eighth Floor, and in addition to the new information I gained, I remember that feeling - that somehow I had been rebooted and was ready to go again in the Fall.  There is always something new on the Eighth Floor to help you re-charge. 

We have been fortunate that we have been able to add many new classes to our offerings this Spring and Summer.  One favorite is the SMART Subject-Specific  class we now offer.  If you get a chance, check out our Teacher Spotlight showcasing some of your fellow teachers and the SMARTBoard lessons they created during these sessions. The Google Workshop had a great turnout, as Scott and Lee Anne covered "everything Google".  Cyberbullying, Ed Tech II, Tech Tips for National Board Certification, Grant Writing - all of these classes as well as the rest were full and had great things to offer.

If you missed seeing us this Summer (we missed you)  we still have several classes and a few special offerings (Teaching All Kinds of Minds, Teaching with Moodle) left this Summer.  We'll also see some changes occurring to the look of the Eighth Floor, so stay tuned....

Citizen Journlism is Growing Up!

For years I have been fascinated by the opportunities the read/write web affords the average citizen – the greatest of that being a voice. I know I say this all the time, but think about it. Really. ANYONE with access to the internet can make a difference – locally or globally. And, it looks like YouTube is making this seriously easier, and still again even more easier, perhaps even the most easiest.

(Have you noticed an image change for YouTube since they are now a Google tool?)

So, check this out. I was, of course, attracted/distracted by this shiny article at Social Times called YouTube and the Future of Citizen Journalism. What’s happening is the world of citizen journalism is being validated and slightly formalized in what looks to be a respectable way. Did you know there was a CitizenTube? I did not. I think I may have heard/read about it somewhere, but it didn’t stick. Here’s how they describe themselves on their site: “CitizenTube is a feed of the latest breaking news videos on YouTube. If you've uploaded or discovered news footage, please tweet it to us (@citizentube) with as much context as you're able to provide.”

YouTube has also launched YouTube Direct. You can submit videos, interviews, digital pictures, etc. Here’s how they explain themselves on their site: “ [YouTube is] a great opportunity for organizations to leverage this online activity for video campaigns, coverage, or programming initiatives - but many find it difficult to connect directly with YouTube's community in a simple, effective way. We've just made that a lot easier with YouTube Direct.” My first thought is school news station that runs on the website. Could that work?

Anyway, bottom line as I see it is, things are happening in the area of citizen journalism that I see as a boundless arena of opportunity for our students and us. Whatever it is you are teaching – or whatever it is your students are learning – could be making the news. Additionally, being able to report on what is happening around them can help students see their connection to their local community as well as the whole big wide world. What do YOU think?

Building Personal Learning Networks: Can you Identify the Top People in your Area?

Personal learning networks. What a great thing. I can have a network that is all about Web 2.0 or digital literacy or the bands I like to see on the weekends. I can create a network for just about anything I want to learn more about or stay on top of.

What got me thinking about this? . . . Will Richardson's post Pulling Networks Together. It’s about a set of five questions that are intended to get readers thinking deeply about their passions and about the connections they form around them. More specifically, his first question got my attention: "1. Can you identify the fifty smartest or most accomplished people who share your passions or interests, regardless of where they reside? "

To me, it seems if I can identify these people then I can have the "mac-daddyest" learning community ever - right at my fingertips.

So, my question to you is, can you identify these people? Who are they?

Be the first to enroll! Here's why . . .
Last summer we had long, long waiting lists for any class that had the word "SMART" in it. After that, we threatened to put SMART in the title of all our classes, such as SMART Blogs, SMART Ed Tech . . . you get the idea. But we didn't. Instread, we scheduled all the SMART classes we could squeeze into the summer. You should be able to find something SMART related scheduled almost every day.

We have some great new classes. The newer classes are always the more popular and fill up the fastest. Here's what is new or changed for the summer:
  • Ed Tech 1 - has been shortened to one day - previously, two days
  • Ed Tech 2 - this a gizmo and gadget basic, introductory course -projectors, scanners, etc.
  • Podcasting 2 - finally! We go in elbow deep with Audacity and audio production
  • Google Workshop for Teachers - tie together the many Google tools to may them work for you and your students.
  • Grant Writing for Teachers - short course, tips, tricks, and resources.
  • Cyberbullying - we've shortened this to 3 hours.
  • Intro to Camtasia - screencasting tool. If you teach online - take this class.
  • Computer's Don't Byte - get down to the basics, file management, bits and parts, etc.
  • SMART Subject Specific Workshops: science, math, language arts, early childhood, social science

So, here's how you can find out more information and get enrolled.

If you have questions about enrollment proceedures, please feel free to contact your advisory committee representative or Norma Newman, 918-828-5341.

Hope to see you on the Eighth Floor this summer!!

Ages of Social Network Users - Why do you Care?

I just taught a Social Networks for Educators class earlier this week. Good class – interesting group. As is typical of universal energy (What?), after the class is over, I start getting/noticing all this new and interesting information about social networks. *sigh*

Social networks are a hot area right now. Duh. I guess a more interesting prediction might be to say, when the flame of hotness eventually burns a little lower, social networks will have found a solid home in education. I am still wondering what that will look like. Right now it is a bit awkward. Right now there isn’t huge support or understanding. Right now, none but the early adopters are on board. Right now, potential and vision are limited.

So, on Facebook I ran across a blog post from the EDUCAUSE Learning Initiative, Study: Ages of Social Network Users. I love this kind of stuff. I admit I have not investigated the research. I do know it is from Google – I know, I know . . . . It’s really more of a comparative study than research.

It goes something like this:
“How old is the average Twitter or Facebook user? What about all the other social network sites, like MySpace, LinkedIn, and so on? How is age distributed across the millions and millions of social network users out there?
To find out, we pulled together age statistics for 19 different social network sites, and crunched the numbers.”

Here is what caught my attention: the least active age group is the exact age group everyone assumes is doing nothing but living via social networks – the 18 to 24 age group. I can think of a million reasons why this may be so, but I can also think of a million reasons why this could be so for any other age group, as well. So what gives? And, that’s not the only question I have. What does this mean for business owners and marketing efforts since this age group will soon become the bigger consumers? Will this trend follow this group, or will they become more active as their circumstances change? What does this mean for education – especially post secondary? Are they already bored by all this? Are social networking tools in education going to be another one of those “day late and an idea short” things that wears everyone out?

What do you make of the 35-44 age group being the largest? Come on, it’s not like this age bracket has more spare time. Maybe they do and I have just lived my life wrong.

Another bit of information caught my attention from a satellite article I read. Eighty-four percent of the people on sites like Facebook are female. Many people commented that although a female majority is true, that this was a false representation since many businesses create female accounts to attract customers. I think it would be more interesting to compare which gender is more ACTIVE as opposed to just having an account. Same with age -- although there are few users in the 18-24 age bracket, I wonder if they might be more active?

I’m going to build on my previous prediction.( I’m brave like that! ) Social networking tools will find a solid home in education because educators will recognize what is valuable about these tools, and they will make them good and true and free and valuable. Much, much of the research shows that social networks (also known as community) aide in student retention, regardless of age. In education, social networks become personalized learning environments. They fit well with our media mindedness. Students are comfortable, find purpose, and feel they belong. When is that not a good thing?

Dr. Seuss TODAY - He so would have been a "GEEK"

In case it is not on your calendar, Dr. Seuss would have celebrated his next birthday this coming March 2nd. We were talking about this in an online class I am facilitating, and one of my students Lou Ann Wilkens, shared this:

Dr Seuss Today
Here's an easy game to play.

Here's an easy thing to say:

If a packet hits a pocket on a socket on a port,
And the bus is interrupted as a very last resort,
And the address of the memory makes your floppy disk abort,
Then the socket packet pocket has an error to report!

If your cursor finds a menu item followed by a dash,
And the double-clicking icon puts your window in the trash,
And your data is corrupted 'cause the index doesn't hash,
Then your situation's hopeless, and your system's gonna crash!

You can't say this?
What a shame sir!
We'll find you
Another game sir.

If the label on the cable on the table at your house,
Says the network is connected to the button on your mouse,
But your packets want to tunnel on another protocol,
That's repeatedly rejected by the printer down the hall,

And your screen is all distorted by the side effects of gauss
So your icons in the window are as wavy as a souse,
Then you may as well reboot and go out with a bang,
'Cause as sure as I'm a poet, the sucker's gonna hang!

When the copy of your floppy's getting sloppy on the disk,
And the microcode instructions cause unnecessary risc,
Then you have to flash your memory and you'll want to RAM your ROM.
Quickly turn off the computer and be sure to tell your mom!

Dr. Seuss as a "geek"! Can you see it?

6 Powerful Social Media Persuasion Techniques – For Educators

In the last year, we have been making a push to build our online learning community. We think this would be an invaluable resource for our consortium members. In the process, we have been trying several social media tools to see which we think will be a good fit. We have an Eighth Floor group on Facebook, we have a Ning site, we have a Twitter account, and we have a blog and wiki. The blog and wiki we have had for about 4 years –they are hardly new and are essentially serving their purpose already. We are really leaning toward the ning site as the hub for our learning community. . I am curious if you can guess why?

So, here’s the thing - that cute little saying, “If you build it, they will come.” Not so much - I’m just sayin’. Right now we have 59 members on our ning site. I love and appreciate every single one of those 59 members – they are AWESOME. (that last statement will be kind of funny in a couple of paragraphs) But we need more! We have a large consortium. Where are the people that are supposed to come?

In an effort to figure out what we could be doing, I have been reading some different blogs lately. One, which I quite like, is The Social Media Examiner. (Author Jeff Sexton) It is more business oriented, but sometimes it is easier to find the answers in the business world and then translate them into education world. Today’s post was particularly interesting for my purposes: 6 Powerful Social Media Persuasion Techniques. Translated, that means, how do I get people to come once I have build it?

Let’s take a look at the six powerful techniques. I encourage you to read the article for yourself, but I am going to translate this into “education world” and share, because if I am nothing else, I am a sharerer. For those of you also struggling with the whole “what’s wrong with my learning community and am I being heard by ANyONE” – maybe this will help?

1. Recipication: This is all about acknowledging and validating the people who do show up. When someone joins your community, you should welcome them and invite them to the conversation. If someone comments on a blog or discussion, you should acknowledge – even expand on –their contribution. Nurture your community.

2. Commitment & Consistency: simple – be committed and be consistent. Continue to remind them in creative ways why this site is valuable them. Send the members a special message every so often. Provide perks for them, such as first crack at new classes or the first to have new information. Make “things” easier for them – create an inside track. Choose a social media platform and stick with it. Be regular in your interaction, be present.

3. Social Proof: this boils down to being valid and sound. Build social validity. See what others like you are doing – what makes them successful. What can you do that others might mimic?

4. Liking: exhibit good intentions. Be likable – be attractive – be for good, not evil. Align yourself with what you feel is positive or good in your area of focus. Be easy to digest and interact with – not complicated. Have a variety of topics to appeal to the variety of people in your community and to those you wish to attract.

5. Authority: exhibit expertise. Cross your I’s and dot your T’s (smile). Check your facts, make sense, be legitimate, and be credible. Not surprisingly, size contributes to authority. The more people who connect with your community, the more authority it has. To me, that’s a little bit of a catch 22 situation – you need people to be authoritative, but you can’t get people unless you are authoritative – you get the idea.

6. Scarcity: offer something there is only a little of. That could be anything that is of value to your community, be it knowledge, information, access, etc. Offer a prize, a contest, a guest spot as a blogger . . . (*crickets*).

Is the Eighth Floor doing all of this, do you think?

In the business world, online learning networks are key. If you need to know something, this is how you find it. Slowly, the same is becoming true in education, really. If I want to know what the latest information is, I hit an online community. This is how your students get their information. It’s not wrong – it’s what it is.

Just out of curiosity, what would it take to get you into an online learning community today – say the
Eighth Floor ning site?

20 Types of Blog Posts - or Blogging Across the Curriculum!

I have had possibly more than a million dozen teachers ask me, "What can I do with blogging in my classroom?" I tell them anything they can imagine, they can do. There are as many ideas as there are teachers and classrooms. I tell them to start out by reading some blogs. Any good blogger was first a good blog reader! Then I tell them to consider their purpose, the nature of their students, and how much time they are willing to commit. I also caution them to replace something they are already doing with the blog - not add the blog to the incredible amout they are already doing. It becomes too much and they will just hate it later.

And all that is some solid advice, if I do say so myself! I realize that for some (me included, often) that solid advice is not always enough to get the juices flowing and motivation running high. Examples, samples, ideas, . . . possibilities! These can help me be creative. So, when I saw this blog post, I thought BRILLIANT! This is just a casual list of 20 different types of blog posts. What I saw was a great list of blogs across the curriculum. See what you think:

Getting the Word Out About our Classes

Every semester we try our best to get the information about our classes out to our consortium members. We use several methods: printed schedule, eNewsletter, emails to the advisory committee, posts and notes on various social media sites, word of mouth, . . . that's all I can think of off the top of my head. Still, we are not sure we are REALLY getting the information out there. We quite often hear from first time participants who have been in a school for many years that they have never heard of us or didn't understand what we were about. OUCH! We do an impressive repeat customer kind of busniness - meaning, once people take a class here, they are hooked.

We have a few questions you all may be able to help us with:
  • How do we combat being invisible without being annoying?
  • How do we get first timers up here - what might make them notice us?
  • What could we be doing to get folks to interact with the Eighth Floor more?

I know people don't have a lot of extra time, and absolutely no schools have any extra money, but we are the best deal in town when it comes to professional development - hands down. How do we let people know?????

Protecting Your Reputation Online - in Plain English

The folks at Common Craft have come out with another short video that puts "life online" in simple terms. This video, Protecting Your Reputation Online in plain English, is aimed at younger social media users and discusses some of the short and long term risks of posting inappropriate or potentially embarrassing information online about them or their friends.

Although it is meant for the tween/teen crowd, there are good reminders in here for us more mature users. I think of this particularly as so many parents and grandparents get on Facebook and other social networking sites. Not only are we connecting with our day to day friends, but we are connecting with kids, siblings, parents, high school friends, work friends, people we don't really know so well, etc. Sharing on the web is a good thing, and I certainly do not want to warn anyone away from productive or fun use of networking sites. I can not imagine my work or personal life without them. We simply need to be mindful of what we are sharing, both about ourselves and others. Does your best friend from high school really want his or her kids to see that hilarious picture? Do you have a frosty beverage in your hand in every picture of you on Facebook?

We don't always think about what goes into shaping our online persona, but of course, we should. This video is a gentle poke in the direction of mindful posting.
