My Questions to the Twitterverse: What is engagement? What does itlook like? What looks like engagement but reallyisnt? 3. What does engagement mean to YOU? 4. What IS Engagement? unklar @berniedodge I think "engagement" sometimes has to be taking notes, listening to the teacher, doing homework alone; oh, yeah, and STUDYING! 5. What IS Engagement? mmuir@berniedodge Eye contact w Head nodding w a smile while the teacher presents looks like engagement but often isn't... mmuir@berniedodge Kids asking their own questions and finding answers and being excited and teaching others about it is engagement 6. What IS Engagement? thecleversheep@berniedodge Engagement: utterly tuned in, focused and undistractable; and they don't realize they're learning. 7. Informal Study N = 265 Describe a learning experience you had that was boring And one that was fun 8. The subject was the Civil War and we were discussing the tools, weapons, and clothing used during that era. We worked in small teams and moved from one artifact table to another. We had to figure out what the artifact was, what it was used for, and why it was invented. We then presented our findings to the class. 9. In my junior American Literature class, we were expected to write a narrative based upon a selected piece of famous art. We were to study every aspect of the painting and then create a story around it. We were allowed to pick the painting we wanted from a selection and we were allowed to work with a partner. 10. This is gross, but we were learning what causes finger/toenails to become discolored or misshaped. We looked at slides, read out loud, took notes and then took our shoes off and identified the things we had learned on each other. 11. We constructed hurricane proof houses that we tested using a fan and then a leaf blower. you were given little materials, expected to come up with your own design structure and to explain your selections to a group. 12.

Caught up in the moment, I actually bought things like this.(Well, not quite like this.) 24. Every day we hear about newtools especially at conferences like this. 25. Each day is like a visit to a new countryWe get excited and a part of our brain shuts down. 26. Youve got to remember where you came fromDont forget what you already knew as a teacher 27. An ad I recently received 28. Reminded me of this 29. And came with claims that make my BS detector light up. 30. Magazines are adopting new technologies in the name of engagement and so will textbooks. Be skeptical. And excited. 31. OK, so what IS engagement? 32.

Interactions Thin lines = weakinteraction requiringshallow processing 51. News Dots http://slatest.slate.com/features/news_dots/default.htm 52. Teacher Engagement = lowInteractions demonstrates the site. Learners watch 53. Teacher gives URL. Engagement = low to mediumInteractions Learners explore. 54. Teacher gives URL and a task: What is in the news Engagement = mediumInteractions that interests you least? Learners explore and reflect. 55. Teacher gives URL and a task: Within Engagement = highInteractions groups, become an expert on one aspect of the news. Then work together and decide on a prediction about what the top five topics will be tomorrow. 56. The SAME tool leads to DIFFERENT engagementIts all about teaching, not technology 57. 360 Cities http://www.360cities.net/image/sanaa-sunset 58. How could you maximize engaged, powerful learning with the 360 cities site? 59. Working in groups of three, decide how to maximizethis, Interactionsthis,and this. 60. What did you come up with? 61. So how can we measure engagement in our own teaching? 62. EOP 63. EOP Put a number from 1 to 10 to indicate the amount of interaction of each type. 64. EOPPut a number from 1 to 6 to indicate the kind of thinking required by the interaction: 1 = Remembering 2 = Understanding 3 = Applying 4 = Analyzing 5 = Evaluating 6 = Creating 65. EOP 66. MEOP Testing now in Oklahoma Will be used in San Diego in ourQualcomm project Quantified feedback Immediate results Learning by focused observation 67. Pre-ClassSetup 68.
