Motivating Students with Digital Magic

Session 1
Howie DiBlasi — Digital Journey

Motivation is a complex issue because what motivates any individual depends on a host of factors. This conversation will create strategies for motivating students to engage in learning. Participants will design, create and explore practices designed to create conditions in the classroom and school that promote, support, and cultivate motivation and increased achievement.

Share how the teachers use Web 2.0 tools and the role that intrinsic and extrinsic motivation play in motivation. How should we teach in a technology-rich learning environment; meet the demands and challenges of 21st Century learning. Implement Digital Tools & skills involving: Writing, Speaking, Visual, Technical, & Personal Development. Create a collaborate document on how to use Digital Tools that our students use every day. Prepare students for the world that is their future.

What does it take to compel students to do things differently and how to engage with ideas, information, and each other?

Share how to discover your students' potential in integrating and utilizing technology. Participants will include skills, a description of the particular tool; examples of its use in the K-12 curriculum and how to get started.

Explore the elements of professional development resources, creativity tools, problem solving resources, collaboration connections, to make learning even more fun for you and your students.

Define how teachers and school leaders locate and create ready-to-use Web applications, lessons, quizzes and rubrics, to learn new skills.

Enhance the value of your classroom by successfully integrating media devices to motivate students with Digital Magic.

Conversational Practice

EduCon 2.4

*My goals are as follows:

  1. Keep the conversation moving and to push participants thinking by using probing questions.

  2. The consensus of the group will decide the collaboration format.

  3. Make links available before EduCon 2.4 and request participants read it before the session.

  4. If possible arrange the room for round tables or small rectangular tables so that participants can work in small groups of about 4 to 5 people each.

  5. Provide interaction during the session.

  6. Provide for exploring ideas and ensuring that everyone has a chance to have their voice heard.

  7. Provide an open discussion to bring out some of the big ideas that were discussed in the smaller groups.

  8. Allow opportunities to share Best Practices

  9. Capture the conversation via Wiki, or Google Docs or Primary pad or Zoho Suite.

  10. Allow opportunities for each group to share and displays their work at the end of the session.
