 3 Things Every Technology Coach Should Have Set Up BEFORE The School Year Starts | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 35:08

Congratulations, it’s a new school year and you are about to walk into the new term as an Instructional Technology Coach.   The first thing that usually goes through your mind is a ton of questions. What is a Tech Coach? What does my school district think a tech coach is? How will my staff find me and my thoughts and ideas? What is most important to any Tech Coach is the ability to hit the ground running on the first day.   But how do you do this? There are many blog posts that agree that the most important thing that you need when starting your school year is an open mind and the ability to make positive relationships?  I absolutely agree that strong working relationships are the key to any successful Instructional Technology program. But what can we do before we meet our staff members?   The best thing that we can do when we meet our staff members is to be completely engaged in their needs and be ready to meet their challenges hand in hand.  Your role as an Instructional Technology Coach is to make the teachers life a little bit easier and the only way you can do this is if you walk into the new school year with these three things neatly tucked into your back pocket. 1) Instructional Technology Website When starting off the school year, it’s important to have an organized collection of resources from which you can not only deploy at a moment’s notice but share with your staff when they are seeking support.   When planning your website, it’s important to remember that you are creating this website for your teachers and NOT for yourself.  You don’t want to make the mistake of creating the perfect website that you adore but is not useful and friendly to your teachers. When planning your website, think about the low hanging fruit in your district and ask yourself if THEY will be able to find what they need when you send them a link to your resource site. Here are a few options from which you can build your resource website WordPress Over the last few years, WordPress has grown into a pretty amazing platform. So much so, that WordPress as an online environment now incorporates more than 29% of the entire internet.   So why not use it for your Tech Coach website? For many, it’s simply overkill.  Too many things moving around and too much time to keep it all organized with its many plugins and website themes.  However, if you are looking to use WordPress for your Tech Coach blog, then here are some solutions that you might be interested in. For more information about WordPress, check out our online resources today. Edublogs If you are seeking a very easy to learn WordPress solution, I strongly suggest checking out EduBlogs.  Hosting more than 4 MILLION educational websites, it’s one of the easiest and safest ways to create your home blog, or your tech coach website. WordPress.com A few years ago, I wouldn’t consider sharing WordPress.com on a review post such as this.  However, recently, the mighty home of all things WP has grown up greatly.  For free, WordPress.com has several free themes and options available for using the world's most popular web platform.   *

 Coding for K12: A useful teaching tool for all teachers | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 6:40

Welcome to Beyond the Hour of Code, I am your host Dr. Sam Patterson, makerspace teacher and author of Programming in the Primary Grades, Beyond the Hour of Code. Not everyone is super excited about coding, especially teachers. My love is learning, self-directed, creative, expressive learning. Code and things you can code are just one of the many tools I use in my space. (I have not yet written the beyond material for sewing and puppets, it is coming)- So what I want to chat about today, the conversation I want to start is about what code is doing in our classes, and how we, as teachers, can respond to the public pressure to code in a way that serves our highest pedagogical goals. I talk about those a bunch my “Highest Pedagogical Goals” These are big picture goals like “Teach kids to read” “help kids develop the social skills to treat each other with kindness” The simple fact is that unless you are teaching a computer science class, you won’t be teaching your kids to code so that they can learn about coding. Also- You will have to teach some of your kids to code. My school is an award winner in tech integration, and my students complain that I don’t teach them enough code before asking them to do things with it. This is true. I give direct instruction and practice short shrift and I rush to building something that does something for someone. I interrupt them as they work to show them specific things and as they learn things I didn’t know I have them teach the class. This isn’t comfortable for most of us. Have you seen the drawing of a person with a circle around them labeled “comfort zone” and the  X far outside the circle that says “You Are Here?” This is the land of coding in elementary school. While some of the kids and some of the teachers enjoy the challenge of logic puzzles and the rewards built into them, for many teacher and students the coding games and tutorials we find have little relationship to the world beyond the screen. They feel disconnected, and generic, and cutesy, like a worksheet. What I strive for instead is a learning experience that takes a simple concept and uses the code platform to play with the concept and connect with other learning we have been doing. Sometimes this might be a ScratchJr “code the aquarium” challenge to have the kids learn loops and apply what they have been learning about fish. Other times we might use a hummingbird robotics kit to recreate a scene from the Berenstain Bears classic  “The Spooky Old Tree.” Instead of relying on the leveled app or challenge to engage the kids, I build my own frame. I create a lousy sample program.* (Always make a minimum, or don’t show them your fancy work,  I find that “I could do better than that” is a really productive mindset for kids, especially when compared to “I could never do anything that cool”) I show the kids the lousy sample and leave the code where they can get it to copy, modify, remix, etc. I do this because I want the kids in my class to spend the time in my class to do things that are specific to my class. I don’t want kids sitting in an app they could do anywhere clicking through screens, that is just giving my time away to an app builder in hopes that their app meets my learning goals. Often the only goal this meets is the external demand for coding. When our schools and communities call for “coding for all” or “coding in every classroom,” our job as teachers is to make sure that coding, like every other tool that enters our classroom, serves the highest goals we have for our students during the time we share. I find that focusing on the job the coding is doing (to show, to explain, to model, to storytelling, to control something) more than the code itself – keeps my kids focused on the higher goals. This allows them access to success even if there is something not yet working with the programming. If you only define success by who makes it to level...

 Is Creativity and Innovation Alive in Today's Classrooms? - Featuring John and Desi Kao | File Type: audio/mpeg | Duration: 21:16

This year at the ISTE Conference, I had the opportunity to catch up with John Kao, a man dubbed “Mr. Creativity” by The Economist.  John and I first met a few years back and spent some time together during an event in Seattle and I have always been fascinated by not only his point of view on today's educational landscape but by the way he is able to very clearly make sense of many of the things we take for granted every day in our classrooms. This year, John wasn't alone.  He brought his son Desi with him to the conference and it was a pleasure getting to meet Desi and as you will hear in this interview, Desi has a very similar sense of creativity and wonder about his surroundings just like his father has. Conversation Topics Include * What is Innovation in 2018? * Is Innovation about “doing” or “thinking” * What can teachers do to become more innovative? * Are teachers the “heros” of innovation? * Shat does Innovative Professional Development look like? * What is Edgemakers doing in classrooms worldwide? * How do we transform some of the issues facing education today? * What is Authentic Education? Who is John Kao? John Kao has spent the better part of 30 years creating compelling learning experiences for emerging innovators and entrepreneurs. His eclectic career mirrors the complexity of innovation and entrepreneurship. He was a professor at Harvard Business School, and he taught at the MIT Media Lab and Stanford’s Bowman House. John is the Global Innovation Advisor to the World Economic Forum (WEF), past Chairman of the WEF’s Global Advisory Council on Innovation and an advisor to countries on innovation policy. A best-selling author of books about innovation, John is also a Tony award-winning producer of stage and screen, Yamaha Music’s first “artist in innovation” and a Yale Medical School trained psychiatrist. Each experience has enriched his pedagogical approach. Dubbed “Mr. Creativity” and a “serial innovator” by The Economist, John Kao is a renaissance man and self-styled “innovation activist” whose creativity forms the DNA of EdgeMakers.
