Designing Personalized Learning Around Student Data

BY Dr. Julie Warner

Synopsis

Increasingly, schools are implementing student data sharing initiatives to support K-12 learning. These aim to provide students and teachers with accurate, timely, and consistent student data to support personalized learning. Schools have become data brokers, yet few school leaders have a deep understanding of how to best leverage and protect student data to support learning

By the end of this session, participants will understand how to address the need for personalized learning rooted in student data that addresses needs for privacy, security, and data ownership to design effective and ethical student data policies. Julie will explain how student data initiatives can be implemented in a way that is truly personalized because it empowers students as its central aim. Empowering students is defined as (1) supporting students in understanding what data is being collected and the related issues of privacy; (2) helping students ask useful questions about their data with regard to their privacy and their education; and (3) supporting students in accessing, deciphering, and mobilizing their data for learning.

Topics covered will include:
‣ Defining data. What’s the scope?
‣ The global policy landscape on data ownership, privacy, and security
‣ Locating, collecting, and using contextual data on schools, communities, locales, and demographic data responsibly
‣ Classroom (formative) data: how to collect, how to “clean” and store, how to analyze, and how to apply insights
‣ Assessment data (summative): how to design assessments for data generation
‣ Assessment data (summative): how to collect, clean, store, analyze and how to apply insights
‣ What insights can we glean from data from standardized assessments?
‣ Apps, ed tech, and student data: what educators should know

Promoting Equity Through Access to EdTech Tools, Skills, and Competencies

BY Dr. Julie Warner

Synopsis

Digital innovation in how we use data and technology is driving what’s being called the Fourth Industrial Revolution. This revolution touches everything from how and with whom we communicate, to where and how we work, to education and healthcare, and more. The global COVID-19 pandemic accelerated digital transformations as work, school, and even governments moved to the virtual realm almost overnight. While we’ve seen many advantages to this digital transformation, underserved groups are often left behind as life shifts to revolve around digital technologies and innovation and countries digitize at breakneck speeds.

This keynote will explore the current scope of the digital divide as it relates to education and access. Julie will argue for a path forward that helps all students unlock the benefits of the new digital revolution. Participants will learn:

‣ The challenges and opportunities students face right now with regard to educational technology, skills, and competencies: who benefits and who is left behind?
‣ The current state of technological coverage and access and what it means for schools right now
‣ How world leaders are committing to equity in access in a rapidly shifting technological landscape
‣ How digital technology is providing affordable education learning materials for students as well as education-focused services previously out of reach for underserved populations and remote areas
‣ How schools can promote equity through access to ed tech tools, skills, and competencies

What Technology Can Teach Us About How Students Think

BY Dr. Julie Warner

Synopsis

Even as our society increasingly takes up digital tools to accomplish the tasks of everyday life and communication happens more and more in online, mediated spaces, education has remained, for the most part, tied to physical spaces and wed to entrenched traditional approaches. When the COVID-19 global pandemic necessitated a shift to remote learning almost overnight for many educators across the globe, gaps in the knowledge, skills, and mindsets needed for teaching effectively with technology became impossible to ignore.

Students, though, often come readily equipped with the proficiency with technology that schools so sorely need to account for in designing effective instruction. We can learn from the toolkits with which they enter the classroom about how to effectively harness technologies and digital competencies for rich, meaningful learning that is relevant outside of and beyond classroom contexts.

Students use technology to access information to achieve moment-to-moment goals; to compose multi-modally with photography, video and linguistic text; to compose collaboratively and inter-textually; and to learn about the world through exploring online spaces and making connections. They are also using mobile tools like phones, laptops, and tablets to engage in learning across the various physical and digital spaces of their lives.

In this interactive, four hour masterclass, participants will learn:

‣ What research can tell us about how learning with and through technology happens
‣ How to build on the skills, knowledge and competencies students possess as frequent and dexterous users of technology
‣ How to leverage digital tools and multimodal texts that build on the skills students bring as digital composers
‣ Common issues educators and school leaders face integrating technology including disparities in access to tools and connectivity; teacher readiness and training; and data and privacy issues
‣ How to prepare students to be participants in a future that is increasingly digitally-saturated

*Please note that not all hours of the masterclass will be made up of videos. The total duration of the video presentations varies for each masterclass. Time allocated for activities is inclusive within the total masterclass duration.

Technology with Intention: Designing Effective and Meaningful Learning Experiences with Digital Tools

BY Dr. Julie Warner

Synopsis

This interactive masterclass is made up of four 1-hour sessions.

Session 1: The What and Why of Intentional Technology Integration and the Role of Mindset

So often, flashy new technology tools take center stage and drive instruction where student learning outcomes and student readiness should be central to instructional design. In order to use technology in the classroom in ways that are both meaningful for learners and improve student outcomes, mindsets must be identified and addressed. This session will help participants discern the role of technology and mindsets in their instructional context and what that means for how best to embed and integrate technology going forward.

Session 2: Technology and Pedagogy: Digital Solutions for Common Problems

Educators face a number of common challenges across grade levels and subject areas. From forming student understanding, to building community, to managing tasks and sharing information, this session will offer a number of actionable strategies teachers can implement today that build on the powerful affordances of technology tools and digital skills to solve common problems. Participants will identify their underlying beliefs about how learning happens and apply a new lens that accounts for new mindsets and student digital toolkits for purposeful technology integration.

Session 3: Communication

Using the web and contributing to web content require digital reading, writing, and multimodal literacy skills, or proficiency with a variety of communicative modes including linguistic, visual, kineketonic (video), gestural, spatial, and auditory. The ubiquity of computer and smartphone-mediated communication has brought about multimodal transformations in the ways people communicate. This session will invite participants to identify the modes of communication critical for students in their teaching context and provide them with a roadmap for helping students develop those skills with and through relevant technologies for an effective and meaningful learning experience.

Session 4: Collaboration

Collaboration is the ability to work with others to learn, solve problems, and create. Working collaboratively is an imperative skill for learning and is highly valued in the workplace. This session explores how educators can encourage and facilitate meaningful collaboration in innovative ways through technology integration.

*Please note that not all hours of the masterclass will be made up of videos. The total duration of the video presentations varies for each masterclass. Time allocated for activities is inclusive within the total masterclass duration.
