    The 21st Century Student
    19:06

    In this section, I want to talk about the way today’s learners respond to information. Then we’ll outline some basic traits and characteristics. We’ll refer back to these traits throughout this course since we want to make sure that the tools we build will ultimately help our students connect with the material we create. Last, we’ll discuss ways you can use this information to re-purpose your material in ways that will increase engagement and retention.

    Action Steps

    1. Consider how you are using technology right now.  What barriers do you face? Where is it working and where is it not?
    2. Complete the worksheet Rethink Your Lesson Plans or access the questions here .

    TED Talk: Do Schools Kill Creativity?
    20:04

    As we saw in the last section, today’s learners not only have more access to information than ever before, they control the flow of that information. They also want to participate in the learning process in different ways than we have seen in the past.

    The increased information flow has, not surprisingly, prompted major shifts in education around the globe. In this TED Talk, Sir Ken Robinson discusses the history of public education and offers up some interesting ideas for how we can re-evaluate learning going forward.

    His ideas fall in line with a growing push for a more open learning environment that encourages a greater connection with the outside world.

    Action Steps

    1. Identify a lesson plan that you would like to work with.
    2. Complete the worksheet Rethink Your Lesson Plans 2 or review the questions online.

    Integrating web applications into your lesson plans lets you connect with your students in a whole new way. But it’s also a great way to showcase your talents and abilities to secondary audiences. So let’s talk about creating content with consideration for your professional growth and other opportunities. It’s a great way to show the world that you know how to connect with today’s students.

    How to Make Free Podcasts for iTunes
    18:34

    Every day, new tools are coming out that make it easier to add technology to the classroom. But what works for one teacher will not work for another. It’s critical that we find the right tools for our students and ourselves. And it’s important that we learn how to customize these tools in order to deliver the message we want our students to receive. 

    This is why we are going to look at podcasts. With a little know-how, you can create podcasts for free and then use them to customize other programs.

    Action Steps

    1.Get your headset with a microphone. (The same headset you use for Skype calls will also work here. If you don’t have one you can purchase an inexpensive one online or check with your school to see if they have one. There is also a workaround if you need one: check out the podcast link under Tools and Resources to learn how to call in your podcast or you can simply try it with your computer’s internal computer microphone.)

    2.Visit http://www.podomatic.com/login

    3.Follow the steps outlined in the video lesson and record your podcast.

    4.Visit https://phobos.apple.com/WebObjects/MZFinance.woa/wa/publishPodcast and post your podcast on iTunes. (You will need a free itunes account to upload.)

    Customizing Your Content With Stock Images
    07:55

    Most of us already know how important images are. We understand that a well-chosen image reinforces and supports the written word. Professional designers use stock photos all the time, precisely for this reason. Stock photos are popular because strong images increase the time spent, and the attention people pay to messages.  So let's look at ways we can add free and/or low-costs professional images to our professional presentations. 

    Action Steps

    1.Visit http://www.123rf.com/freeimages.php 

    2.Create an account and download at least one free image.

  • 9
    Tools and Resources Part I
    11:00

    Now that we have mastered podcasting and we know where to find great images, let’s look at programs. There is a lot to choose from and I hope you will find the time to review everything on the Tools and Resources Website List. With new technology, we learn best by doing. The more you can click on things the more you’ll figure out. Even if a program does not work for you, it may be perfect for a colleague or it may trigger an idea for another project later on.

    You’ll also need to know what to look for. I selected many of these tools because they offer a number of great resources for teachers. Some of them also offer free add-on services or extra features. I also prepared this video lesson as a way to get you started. I’ll cover a few of these sites so you can get a sense of what to look for and then I’ll invite you to start exploring on your own.

    And last, I do want to point out that we’ll cover several of these programs in depth. For example, we’ll do complete walk-throughs of animoto, prezi, masher, wix, podomatic, and slideshare. So if you are super keen on getting started with any of these programs, feel free to locate the lessons dedicated to them in the course. Do keep in mind though that some of the programs build off of each other so you may want to move through each unit in order.

    Tools and Resources Part II
    11:48

    After you watch the video lessons:

    1. Check out the links under the Tools and Resources (Lesson 10) and start clicking. Look through everything. Each of you will find products that work and products that don’t. Take a critical look at several of these and consider ways in  which you can integrate this type of product into your lessons based on your student’s interests, needs, and the technology you can all access.

    2. Consider your secondary audiences outside the classroom. Examine these programs with consideration for your committee work, faculty presentations, and special projects. What would make you look like the star teacher we know you are? What programs would connect well with, or impress, your colleagues, parents, and administrators?

    Storytelling 101
    Presentation

    Begin Section 3 with this slideshare presentation on presentations. There is lots of useful advice but please take note of the delivery. Notice the use of short text, eye-catching fonts, strong images, and the background. We’ll play with some of these ideas in this unit and give you a chance to post your own slideshare presentation in just a bit.

  • 14
    Power Up Your PowerPoints (or Keynotes)*
    16:46

     In this lesson, we are going to break down color, font, and design to help the digital natives in your classroom connect with your content. We’ll start by going through a simple PowerPoint* and identifying a few places where you can make simple but effective changes.

    Action Steps

    1. Identify a presentation that you would like to make over.
    2. Make a few simple changes to the color and style.
    3. Add an image from a free stock image site or pull a bold, striking photo from your own collection.
    4. Save your upgraded presentation.

    *A note to our friends on Mac: This presentation is about all about style, so the rules will apply to Keynote as well as PowerPoint. We focus on using color and bold graphics so you can follow along with any presentation program and Slideshare takes Keynote uploads too!

  • 15
    Sharing With SlideShare
    23:23

    Description: In this lesson, we’ll talk about coordinating your talk with images for increased engagement. Then we’ll give you a chance to build something new for yourself and upload this content for folks to find you online as well as in the classroom.

    Action Steps

    1. Identify a presentation that you would like to make over.
    2. Make a few simple changes to the color and style.
    3. Add an image from a free stock image site or pull a bold, striking photo from your own collection.
    4. Save your upgraded presentation.
    5. Login into slideshare.net
    6. Publish your presentation.

    Prezi Presentations
    27:10

    Prezi is a cloud-based presentation software that has gained quite a following in the past few years. The program allows you to take 2D presentations and recreate them on a zoomable canvas.

    It is a terrific tool for connecting ideas and it is highly engaging.  In this video lesson, we’ll walk through all the basics so you can quickly create Prezis of your own.

    Animoto Introduction
    04:06
    Movies are a great way to connect with your students and they do not have to take tons of time. New programs will do the editing for you and many come with stock images and video that you can drop right into your own products. Let's look at ways to produce quick videos that are sure to grab your student’s attention using free materials you can access right away.

    TED Talk: How YouTube is Driving Innovation
    18:54

    Videos can be simple and easy or overwhelmingly complex. Some of you may be uncomfortable with the idea of testing them out. I, too, must confess that I have struggled with editing a video for days when I thought it would only take one afternoon to complete. But video is actually more important than most people realize and this is why I am including this TED Talk by Chris Anderson to explain why. 

  • 23
    Making Movies
    16:41

    So let’s look at the basics of movie making. This is not a lesson in producing the next Avatar but it does talk about ways to spruce up your productions with a few tips from the pros. (Note: it is worthwhile to work through this exercise even if you never plan to make one. It will help you understand the process, which means that you can modify and personalize web 2.0 products to great effect.)

    1. For those of you interested in a bit of more of an advanced study of editing, feel free to check out the two links below by Make Internet TV. These screencasts work off of Movie Maker (for PC) and iMovie (for Mac) so its costs nothing.

    Plus, like we mentioned in the video, the more you understand about the editing process, the better you’ll be at shooting and organizing film clips in ways that connect with your students and other audiences.

    Link to Editing with Windows Movie Maker 

    Link to Editing with iMovie

    2. Then check out www.masher.com. It is similar to Animoto but offers a few different styles that will work with different messages. If you are having students work on video productions, the more options the better.

    Masher lets you create videos by mixing together video clips, music tracks, and photos for free. Then you mash all the images with text, music, and special effects. And last, you can share your videos by email or on Facebook.

    Screencasting 101
    19:38

    Now that you understand the basics of movie making, we are going to look at screencasts. This is a great tool for presenting new information and it’s not just for online teachers. Screencasts put your lessons in your students’ hands so that they can access and review course material anytime, anywhere. Let’s start by taking a look at the many different uses for screencasts.

    Action Steps

    1. If you already have a YouTube account, proceed to Part II: How to Create Your Own Screencasts.

    2. If not, follow these simple steps to get set up.

    1. Go to http://www.youtube.com
    2. Click on the Create Account link in the upper right corner.
    3. Enter your first and last name in the boxes provided.
    4. If you have a gmail email account, type that into the appropriate box. If you don’t have an account, you’ll need to create one by entering what you’d like to have and it’ll tell you if it’s acceptable.
    5. Next type in a password. It’s a good idea to use something you’ll remember, but you need to make it a smart password which includes upper and lower case letters and at least one number and one character.
    6. Next you’ll need to enter your birthday.
    7. Then you’re gender.
    8. Your mobile phone number.
    9. Your current email address is the one you use daily. It doesn’t have to be your gmail account if that’s not what you use.
    10. Then you need to choose if you want to set Google as your default homepage. This is not necessary if you don’t want it to be. The check is defaulted, so you’ll need to remove it if you don’t want this to occur.
    11. The next thing is to type in the text given. This is YouTube’s way of preventing robots or computers from making accounts to spam people.
    12. Choosing your location is next and that defaults to the United States, so nothing is required unless you need to change that.
    13. Accepting the terms and privacy policy is next and that’s as easy as placing a check in the box if you agree to them.
    14. The next section is to allow Google to place ads on your profile. The check allows them to place them.
    15. Click on next after everything has been entered.
    16. Now you need to add a profile photo. Click on upload image and that will take you to an area where you can either select a photo from your computer or you can use your webcam to take one.
    17. When you choose one it will ask you to crop it. You can turn it to the left or right and make it bigger or smaller.
    18. Click set as profile photo when you’re done cropping it and you’re happy with the way it looks.
    19. Click next step.
    20. This takes you to a confirmation page that shows you the email address through gmail.
    21.  Click Back to YouTube.
    22. Now you’re ready to upload videos and share them.

    Introduction
    01:55

    In this day and age everyone has a website – even my 3-year-old. So it’s not surprising that companies are offering all kinds of website building tools for free. Some of you may have your own page through your school or you have taken a look at sites through the Tools and Resources links.

    In this lesson we are going to work with Wix. This site is really popular with artists because the design layouts are bold and dramatic. And if professional designers, photographers, and engineers use this program to promote their work, why not you?

  • 30
    Working With Templates
    08:14
    In this lesson we are going to look at different templates and find one that works for you. Remember that you can change everything so if you fall in love with a website for dentists, you can still make it your own.
  • 31
    Creating Your Site - Part I
    17:39

    I’ll show you how to build your own site from start to finish and then give you a chance to build one too. You can follow my example or build something different. It’s entirely up to you.

    But I do hope that you will take this opportunity to customize your website with all the great products you have created in this course.

  • 32
    Creating Your Site Part II
    13:38

    Action Steps

    1. Scan, find, and/or collect images of your own and store them in an easy to locate file.
    2. Visit www.wix.com and create a free account.
    3. Review website templates and select one to make your own.
    4. Edit your website template to your liking and post to the web.
  • 33
    Conclusion
    03:01

    Congratulations! You’ve reached the end of the professional development eCourse, How to Teach with Technology .

    You have mastered the tools in this program but I hope you will carry away a little something extra:

    A new way of looking at web 2.0.

    The next time you watch a presentation that makes an impression, I hope you will take note of “what works” and replicate it for your own talks. Likewise, I hope that you will view online products with the same critical eye.

    If something grabs you online, search for a program that makes it. Odds are pretty good that someone offers it and offers it for free (even if it’s just for 30 days). So remember, if you can define it, you can find it. Then make it your own.

    And last, I know you will consider all the ways you can use web 2.0 for your students, but don’t forget about yourself. Don’t forget that these online programs are subtle reminders to everyone in your community that you are a 21st century teacher.

    I wish you great success in all of your endeavors inside and outside the classroom.

    Warm regards,

    Kimberly Williams

Hosting a wordpress site is pretty inexpensive and there are many companies to choose from. Set up will also look quite different from wix so if you run into trouble you can download Wordpress for Beginners from Amazon for $3.

    So Good

    This was a fantastic course. Kimberly gave so much information and resources. This course is great for teachers, entrepreneurs, or anyone interested in sharing or teaching on-line. I do not know the instructor, but I can assure you that Kimberly has opened up a world of possibilities for me already!!

  • Charly Suter
    Good Course for Teaching 2.0

    It show easy and simple to use tools to teach. Great Content, even when the form of Presentation is pretty fancy. But with the time you learn that they are all different styles and tools. From the design point of view a desaster - but the Content is great and you may take this course for learn new stuff. So you are right here.

    Interesting content, lousy microphone, nosy voice

    The teacher sounds as if she had a cold. This is a factor of distraction, bringing me the constant idea that she had just discovered tech as a mean of education, and couldn't wait for Amazon to deliver her pro mic before starting to voice over her videos. In spite of the good insights, I slept over my iPad every time I tried to finish it.

    Excellent 5 stars course!

    I wish all Udemy courses were like this one! You can tell the instructor has put a LOT of work into each subject/lecture. Very detailed and comprehensive information with hands-on explanation. The material in the course could be easily broken into several stand-alone courses, so I am sure you will find at least one section of the course to be of interest to you! many Udemy instructors would have splitted this course into two or more stand-alone courses to charge and earn more, but this obviously is not the case here! I should prob stop praising this course because I do not want people to think I am a freelance Udemy-Courses-Prompter from Fiverr ;) PS: I am not even a teacher! I direct small group discussions sometimes in my job and thats what drew me into exploring this course. I am glad I did!

    Awesome Lectures On Technology

    This course is really very nice. The instructor Kimberly Williams focuses on many aspects of technology and tells us that how we can utilize the technology at the fullest. If you are an online tutor or a local teacher, you can surely buy this course and make use of the technology to make classes more interactive, fun loving and at the same time useful for students.
