Imagine

Rip Van Winkle awakens in the

21st century

after a hundred- year snooze and is, of course, utterly

bewildered

by what he sees.

Men and women dash about, talking to small

metal devices

pinned to their ears.

Young people sit at home on sofas, moving miniature athletes around on

electronic screens

Older folk

defy

death and disability with

metronomes

in their chests and with knees made of metal and plastic.

Airports, hospitals, shopping malls… every place Rip goes just him baffles

But when he finally walks into a

classroom

, the old man knows exactly where he is.

"This is a school," he declares. "We used to have these back in

1909

. Only now the blackboards are white."

“We are currently preparing students for jobs that don’t yet exist, using technologies that haven’t been invented, in order to solve problems we don’t even know are problems yet.” Karl Fisch Fisch, K. (2006).

The Collaboration Continuum:

Building Interdependence Through Partnership

Cooperation

Helping when a question is asked

Coordination

Planning when a lesson or an activity happens which supports core curriculum

Collaboration

“a prolonged and interdependent relationship” Isolation Interdependence • Finding a website or a book for a teacher upon request.

• Showing a teacher how to use a digital camera or book a laptop cart upon request.

• Introducing the document cameras to a team when asked.

• Setting up a learning space with appropriate resources to “kick off” a unit.

• Teaching a “one-off” lesson that fits with the curriculum.

• Planning a unit to coincide with core curriculum which is independently taught by specialist.

• Sharing goals • Carefully defined roles in the process • Comprehensive co-planning • Co-planning units that will be team taught.

• Team-teaching units which authentically embed both curricular goals.

• Units which are team-taught are co assessed.

Collaboration has the highest impact on student achievement.

Collaboration is “2 (or more) equal partners who create a project or unit of study based on content standards in one or more content areas, a unit that will be team-designed, team taught, and team-evaluated.” Research from Todd, Ross: http://www.scils.rutgers.edu/~cissl/research/ohio.html

The Collaboration Cycle:

Building Independence Through Partnership

Frequent & consistent collaborative planning, learning and assessment:

Classroom teacher and technology facilitator work as full partners in the planning, learning (teaming in the classroom) and assessment process.

Occasional conversations:

Technology facilitator offers helpful advice and tips to classroom teacher as s/he tackles new projects at their own pace. Classroom teacher actively assists other team members in use of technology.

Consistent Professional

Development Opportunities: after school walk-in sessions 3 days per week, curriculum planning at the team level, individual assistance as needed, advice and tips offered to teachers and teams as appropriate to curricular needs. Pre-assessment of skills, readiness & interest

Regular collaborative planning, learning and assessment:

Classroom teacher asks technology facilitator for assistance in planning, learning (teaming in the classroom) and assessment as needed.

Occasional collaborative planning, learning and assessment:

Classroom teacher works with technology facilitator outside of class time to plan and implement projects. Occasional teaming in the classroom, as needed.
