9:30 The Global Achievement Gap: Seven Survival Skills

Tony Wagner’s Seven Survival Skills as defined in his most recent book, The Global Achievement Gap.

If all students are to acquire these survival skills for success in the 21st Century, then what systemic changes must take place in our schools and classrooms? What do good schools look like - schools where all students are mastering skills that matter the most?

List examples and evidence of how you currently incorporate each of these skills into your current classroom practice. What ideas do you have for ways to incorporate these skills using what you have learned from your work with EETT so far?

  • Critical thinking and problem-solving

  • Collaboration across networks and leading by influence

  • Agility and adaptability

  • Initiative and entrepreneurialism

  • effective oral and written communication

  • Accessing and analyzing information

  • Curiosity and imagination

10:45 Breakout Session: Instructional Strategies

Developed by Stephanie Sandifer (author of Change Agency)
Web2.0 that Works

Classroom Instruction That Works is a collection of effective strategies culled from a meta-analysis of decades of research on what works in classrooms to improve student learning and increase student achievement. This meta-analysis was conducted by Robert J. Marzano, Debra J. Pickering, and Jane E. Pollock. They combined these effective strategies into nine broad categories:

Lesson planning and Standards Resources



TPCK Model

1. Get in groups by discipline. Administrators, elective and technology folks (pick a group to join or work together in a group)
2. Discuss the most hands-on/minds-on lesson you have ever taught.
3. What are the Essential Instructional Activities you typically use in your discipline?
(explore the resources provided in key elements if needed to create your list)
3. Have a discussion about typical instructional strategies used in your discipline- compare and give examples- record on chart paper.
4. Have a discussion about possible Web 2.0 tools that fit nicely with your discipline's essential instructional activities.
5. Working in pairs, pick a core content area (standard-based) you typically teach.
6. Using the content, the essential strategy, and the technology- design an activity that is hands-on/minds on.
7. Now ask yourself- where does it fit in the share- connect- collaborate- collective action continuum?
8. Report Out

12:45 Project Based Learning

What is PBL?

According to Wikipedia, Project based learning, or PBL, is a constructivist pedagogy that intends to bring about deep learning by allowing learners to use an inquiry based approach to engage with issues and questions that are rich, real and relevant to their lives. This strategy is well served since the onset of the read/write Web. Teachers have ready made content easily available via the Web and the tools to allow for creative student directed creation of content related to the problems and questions contained in the project being studied.

2:00 Working in Disciplines to Develop a Unit

Creating Mini-Units of Inquiry

1. Group by interest, level, area or anyway that makes sense for you to group. Admin and Tech Cordinators join a group and put on your instructional leader hat.
2. Looking at national and state standards choose possible topics and a couple possible objectives you could cover under this topic (this will be adjusted).
3. Decide on a passion-based theme for your unit. (Skateboarding to teach: landforms, simple machines, geometry, bios of skateboarders, geography of where they live, etc.)
4. Create a topical map and then a subject map (choose one or two areas to develop learning activities) Mind Mapping Tools
5. Decide on a kickoff activity -Arouse students’ curiosity and interest with stimulating introduction. Consider visual display of theme as well as introductory activities.
6. Create 2-3 learning activities that teach the objectives you selected from standards. Use Web 2.0 tools as the participatory medium. How will you evaluate mastery of the objectives? Make sure your activities are cross curricular in nature and address Shirky's continuum.
7. Decide on a culminating event. Make sure your event includes others and highlights student created artifacts.
8. Take pics of your chart, list notes, and link anything you can for others below here on the wiki. "None of us is as good as all of us."
