How do we think about kids when making educational decisions?
I am an individual
Digital Immigrant says WHAT?
We are digital natives!
I live here
And I live here
Individual Identity in Education
I have technology in here, but what do I do with it?
We began by trying to figure out the connection between technology and literacy....Does our definition of literacy need to change as kids change, as society changes?
I play video games, but only certain kinds. How my character looks and interacts is important to me
I wish my mom would clean my room...
Our students do not all come from the same places. They do not all have equal access to equal opportunities, resources, options/alternatives, etc...
We need to block the bad stuff, the kids can't be trusted. I can't give you time to individualize your instruction weaving in technology...we have standards, I have meetings, the board is breathing down my neck!
How do I use the access I have to create a curriculum that works with technology versus adding on technology ? How do I make this a participatory practice? And how do I do that in such a way that ALL of my students are included?
Why is masculinity and heteronormativity so prevalent in video games? How does this influence on students affect education?
Who is responsible for treating kids like individuals worthy of physical and use access to participatory practices that were thoughtfully created by a cohort of in-service and pre-service teachers?
