The Networked Student… in plain English

This CommonCraft inspired video does an excellent job of explaining what a truly networked student looks like. And more importantly, what the teachers role is for them.

Consider it your weekend video break.

    Blogged about this yesterday here.
    I think Wendy hit the nail on the head with this video. I also felt my own learning journey yesterday, mirrored the networked student. My question is how do we design professional development to transform educators from being the “Sage on the Stage” to “Learning Concierge”? It seems to me that in order to assist students in making connections, we need to be connected ourselves. I’m not sure that regular classroom teachers with “full plates” have the time or energy to do that. Perhaps that is roll tech integrationists need to fill. Provide lists of connections for people. Thoughts?

  3. […] Teach 42 shared a video the Networked Student in Plain English. I think this is also an excellent example of the networked teacher. This illustrates very well how I work within my learning network and how we can continue to be life long learners in an area that we have interest. I believe teachers need to be similarly network to enhance their learning and to learn how to effectively use these tools to support student learning. I will be sharing this with my colleagues. […]

    Hi Mr.Dembo,
    Thank you for commenting on my blog. Most of my friends don’t like sushi either. We actually just watched a “in plain english” video on wikis. Unfortunately I could not view your video because youtube is blocked in our district.

    Michael Walker’s question gets to the source of the mission. Kids can do anything we ask them in regards to integrating technology into their learning. The difficulty is with many of our teachers. I don’t have the answer to: ” how do we design professional development to transform educators”. Getting our administrators to give up time for training is the starting place. After that I know it has to be hands on learning or it is wasted time.

    I agree with Leo, the techteacher podcast is awesome and should be in every teachers tool kit.
