Cool Tools for Process-Based Learning

The experience of learning in the Information age has moved far beyond the walls of our schools and can now happen anytime and anywhere, and has become an interactive and hands-on journey for our digital youth. Today, we’re all lifetime learners, and challenge- and process-based learning has become the new face of education. But even in the classroom environment, there are so many great online tools to enhance and support today’s learning adventures, and that’s what Cool Tools for Process-Based Learning is all about. Based on the book, The Digital Diet: Today’s Digital Tools in Small Bytes, along with the “Small Bytes” digital tool mini-guides from the 21st Century Fluency Project, this presentation covers a wide range of useful online programs and “cool tools” geared toward the methodology of process-based learning, and the fluency skills that help young minds shape powerful and unique ideas.

Aligning Technology Initiatives

Aligning Technology Initiatives is designed to help educational leaders and decision-makers wade through the complexities of technology planning. This presentation outlines a simple yet comprehensive multi-point strategy of alignment that will enable technology initiatives to become effectively linked and in tandem with instructional goals. Participants will come away from this presentation with a clear understanding of how to address state standards, improve test scores, meet their curricular requirements, provide relevant staff development, and provide measurable accountability for expenditures. They’ll also ensure that students are effectively prepared with the skills and knowledge they will need to cope with the new realities of the 21st century. This session is based on the forthcoming book, Getting It Right: Aligning Technology For Measurable Student Results, from the 21st Century Fluency Project.

Digital Citizenship

Carl Sagan once said that our society is deserving of citizens with an acute awareness of how their world works, and that is more necessary than ever in today’s interconnected world. InfoWhelm and the rise of social media have given us online environments that can be exciting and entertaining, but also unpredictable and sometimes even dangerous. As such, today’s digital citizen must be guided by the principles of leadership, accountability, fiscal and personal responsibility, environmental awareness, and global citizenship. In Digital Citizenship, we take an in-depth look at the model citizen in the age of social networking. You’ll learn what the defining characteristics of the digital citizen are, the 6 primary tenets of effective digital citizenry, and how students can develop a code of ethics that will help them learn mindsets of conscientious and responsible behavior, and ensure their safety and security in the online world. This session is based on the book The Digital Diet: Today’s Digital Tools in Small Bytes, and the upcoming book, Literacy is Not Enough: 21st Century Fluencies for the Digital Age, from the 21st Century Fluency Project.

Global Connections and Collaboration Fluency

The students and workers of the 21st century are living in an environment conducive to collaboration. Technology, social networking, and InfoWhelm have broken down long-standing barriers of communication in our society and turned the economy global. Our suburbs are no longer just outside our back door—they’re all over the planet, and education and business are looking ahead to the strong partnerships and team environments that will define their future, and connect them to the modern world. The successful ability to work and interact with partners both real and virtual is the essence of the presentation Global Connections and Collaboration Fluency. Get a sense of how the architects of our digital age will successfully forge partnerships to interact and prosper in both real and digital environments with the help of the 5E’s—Establish, Envision, Engineer, Execute, and Examine. This presentation is based on the upcoming book, Literacy is Not Enough, from the 21st Century Fluency Project.
