Kevin Honeycutt--Social Learning Networks
These are my notes from Kevin Honeycutt's session at NCTIES:
Was an art teacher in K12, now on schoolboard...
SPY Tv director...high school in Kansas...
Brandon Brown, who house got wiped out by the big tornado in Kansas--called Kevin to ask for a copy of the movie they made in high school--that says something right there about the power of video creating in school
Sure, the students are Lazy....sometimes you have to really nudge them to write the scripts, etc, but they usually will pull it together...
you do an amazing job, then the next year, it's just part of their job...
On Twitter you can brag on the them...
Innovation dies of doemestic violence
World is changing faster than anytime since the printing press during the Renaissance
Idea" Put Microphone on your heartbeat, you only got so many heartbeats in your life--Kids...
More you know the more valuable you get, kids need a roll-a-decks of important resources.
Bulletin Board of kids statements on twitter, you stop and talk about mean behavior. Kids need educated on social networking
You could make a paper bulletin board in your class to "rehearse for social media"
Sphere of Learning...
Tale of Two Minds:
Stand alone or Network connected...
First time in history we are global competition connected...
We got to get connected, "kids in India are hungry for your job"
Throw the ball where the receiver is going to be...we need to do that in education--talked about World is Flat
Fungable jobs, can be outsourced
It's hard to outsource amazing...
An amazing teacher over skype is better than a disengaged teacher in the classroom.
How do you get grandma archived for history?
Furniture at school is punitive...Macdonalds designes furniture that is uncomfortable so you will get up and buy another burger...why is school like that??...Kevin got track lighting for his room.
soft interface--couches, cusheys, nice lighting try these in your class in times for discussion
They will own this lesson...
4/5 groups in classes
Ever feel like a waiter in classroom? Be a consultant...
HE would send bonuses to his "student executives"--send a picture of a lexus, sent hershey bars...
Every student got to rotate through the leadership role...
You can join as k12 so no ADS
There's little kids around, be on your best behavior...
Art snacks all free place
give you a free store to put artwork on
Profit margin goes to the school for art work on
Read to other classrooms, some stranger on the wall suddenly students are watching
Get experts from all over to talk to your classes
Never had an author say no yet
Need to share "roll-a-decks"
Daniel Pink wrote a whole new mind MIT writer
What can skype mean for learners"?
teachers around the world sharing lessons
