The Hyper-Connected Student in the Accountability-Driven Classroom
Digital natives are living with podcasting, YouTube, TeacherTube, Flickr, Zoomr, RSS, the Social Web, mp3 players, FaceBook, My Space, Blogger, Twitter, Tweet, Skypecasting, Slideshare, photocasting, Second Life, online gaming, (the list could go on and on), and every other “new” and exciting Web 2.0 technology that was “just announced today.” But the reality of school is that we work, teach, and learn in the Age of Accountability. This presentation will reflect on the continuous partial attention of the students in what is now becoming a hyper connected classroom. What is the teacher to do?! Dr. Tyson will explore learning beyond minimum standards but within the grasp of limited resources.
