Due:  Wednesday, April 25, 2012 on group project teams page

Local Learning Challenge to apply learning strategy and technology design:  Castilleja School, Palo Alto

 

Designing the 21st Century Curriculum

 

  • Using a local, independent all girls school as a baseline for learning, how might this learning extend into areas with fewer resources and opportunity? Or, to girls who are in a different community?
  • Develop designs to scaffold 21st century skills and concepts while cultivating girl identities as "agents of change" and connecting girls to a social network of girls globally through appropriate technology solutions. 
  • Castilleja School partnerships are located in China, Guatemala, India, and Kenya.

 

Castilleja School: Women Learning, Women Leading

The only independent girls’ school for grades 6-12 in the Bay Area, Castilleja prepares young women to be self-directed learners and independent leaders. Experienced Castilleja teachers, coaches and advisors tailor classroom instruction and co-curricular programming to the unique needs of girls, creating an incomparable environment for girls to thrive.

National Design Challenge: Khan Academy, Nigeria, Africa

 

Empowering Global Learners

Designing modern learning environments
  • Khan Academy's mission is to provide a free world-class education for anyone anywhere.  While significant innovation has taken place with content creation (Khan Academy, MIT OCW, TED ED) relatively little time/energy/money has been spent rethinking the best methods for distributing that content in a culturally relevant way

 

  • How can we redesign learning environments/systems that utilize these vast libraries of digital content to motivate people to feel ownership over their learning process? What does it mean to truly scale blended learning methods to improve teaching and learning on a global scale?

 

Khan Academy

A free world-class education for anyone anywhere.

All of the site's resources are available to anyone. It doesn't matter if you are a student, teacher, home-schooler, principal, adult returning to the classroom after 20 years, or a friendly alien just trying to get a leg up in earthly biology. The Khan Academy's materials and resources are available to you completely free of charge. 

 

Teach-A-Class:

Neil D'Souza will join this session to demo his edu hotspot and share his experience overcoming device and connectivity constraints so that the project teams can focus specifically on the teaching and learning components.

From Wikipedia:  Information graphics are visual devices intended to communicate complex information quickly and clearly. The devices include diagrams, graphs, tables, maps, lists, horizontal bar charts, vertical column charts, and round or ovalpie charts, that can summarize a lot of statistical information. Diagrams can be used to show how a system works, and may be an organizational chart that shows lines of authority, or a systems flowchart that shows sequential movement. Illustrated graphics use images to related data.
