Welcome to ISTE "Unplugged" 2011!

The Unplugged area will be located next to the Blogger's Cafe.
Have you always wanted to present at NECC/ISTE but were not selected? Or do you have a topic to present or discuss that wasn't timely when formal presentation applications were due last year, but is so now? If so, sign yourself up below!

ISTE Unplugged is held during and as a part of the International Society for Technology in Education Conference (ISTE ) June 27th - 29th. It is three days of presentations where anyone attending ISTE can sign up to present, held on-site in its own live audience area with a Promethean whiteboard, a microphone, and amplified sound (you need to bring your own presentation computer). Special note to presenters representing commercial companies: this is not a venue for direct promotion of your commercial product.

All ISTE Unplugged sessions will be streamed live through Elluminate and recorded as well. (To make sure your computer is configured for Elluminate, go to http://www.elluminate.com/support.) The broadcasting is taken care of by a volunteer there. All sessions slots are 30 minutes long--20 minutes to present, with 10 minutes for transition and short Q&A. If you really think you need a longer presentation, you can take two adjacent time slots--but be sensitive, as we want to allow as many people to present as have a desire to. If you are using a Mac laptop please make sure you have the appropriate dongle for your laptop to connect the projector.

The schedule for ISTE Unplugged is below. As this is a "wiki," to add your presentation you just click on the edit button at the top of the page and add your session ("Presentation Title," "Your Name," "Short Description & Link") then click save. Don't worry, you can't do permanent damage if you mess anything up, and you're welcome to email steve@hargadon.com for help. (And if you are successful, you've learned to edit a wiki!) Feel free to combine with others, set up multiple demos in one time slot, or in other ways be creative! After you've created your session, you can also create a link through to a notes page if you want to give more details. ISTE Unplugged also allows anyone streaming, liveblogging, back-channel chatting, Tweeting, or otherwise generating content for remote users to list those resources here in right-most column.

To be kept notified of changes and updates to this page, use the Notify Me tab above. Contact Steve Hargadon with questions or brainstorms! A Promethean Activboard for display will be provided for your convenience—no special drivers or software is required to connect to the projector, but if you want to control your presentation or operate software or Web 2.0 applications using the Promethean Activboard, you can install the free driver for it from here: http://www.prometheanplanet.com/en-us/support/software/activdrivers/ (choose ActivDriver/ActivManager)

Description:
The Digital Learning Collaborative is a project of the St. Vrain Valley School District's IT Department in partnership with other district offices and initiatives. Over two years, participant teachers explore technologies of their own choosing and, in year two, conduct teacher research to determine the efficacy of their use of technology in the classroom to improve student learning. In this session, we'll explore the DLC and the resources they are creating as they meet in small teams to learn and inquire together. You'll leave with some ideas about how to foster similar work in your own contexts.

Title:Youth Voices - A School-Based Social Network
Description: Youth Voices is a school-based social network that was started in 2003 by a group of National Writing Project teachers. We merged several earlier blogging projects, preferring to bring our students together in one site that would live beyond any particular class, where it would be easier for individual students to connect with other students, comment on each others work, and create multimedia posts for each other. Further we thought it made sense for us to pool our knowledge about curriculum and digital literacies. If being part of such a community makes sense to you, we invite you to join us too. We work to embrace any teacher who is interested to have their students publish online and participate in the give and take of a social network like Youth Voices.

Title: Phantom Power: The Art of Education Reform
Description: For many educators, the fundamental notion of teaching as an art, and with it the sense of joyful creativity that first brought them into the profession, has been nearly extinguished. The relentless, linear logic of teaching as a science dominates, as evidenced by our current culture of high-stakes testing, data, standards, research. Thinking like an artist---as Emily Dickinson says, ‘telling it slant”---- is a possible pathway to reclaim teaching as a creative act. Social media afford new ways of telling it slant, of inviting new “slants” and diverse points of view, making possible networked collaborations within and beyond classrooms. In the session, experience examples of technology-mediated participatory art across a range of media and forms and explore their usefulness as engines of creativity in teaching and learning. Further, the session proposes an “arts ethos,” with teacher and students as artists and learning as artifact---part of a viable, balanced path to education reform.

Title: iPods - It's Not Just For Music
Description:
How do you create the framework for a learning environment where students have access to an iPod Touch all day?
At El Dorado Middle School, with 450 students, we have taken the challenge to reach the students through the use of
technology, while at the same time changing the culture. In this session we will take you from the start of our initiative
to the current status, and the results of blending 21st Century learning into the daily routine. Topics covered will
include Why, Goals, Infrastructure, Staff Development, Student Rollout, and Results. Attendees will leave with
information so that they can begin to investigate and/or implement an iPod initiative with the students in their building.
Presenter: Doug Jensen (Dir. of Technology) and Julie Jensen (Dir. of Curriculum), and both Apple Distinguished Educators
