Shifting Paradigms in Education
PPTX (192 MB) | PDF (10 MB) Written and presented by Ken Baldauf as the keynote address at the California Business Educators Association State Conference in San Jose, CA, November 6, 2010Abstract: Today’s youth lead online lifestyles. They interact in online communities, build relationships, express themselves, stay informed, and find answers to life’s questions all online. Notebook PCs, smartphones, and wireless networks provide access to social networks anywhere, anytime. This generation, the iGeneration, is accustomed to on-demand, individualized service, and is becoming increasingly intolerant of traditional teaching methods where lectures and textbooks assume that “one size fits all” and that learning takes place through individual effort in a classroom. As teachers struggle to satisfy tech-savvy students, we also face pressure to serve increasing numbers of students with fewer resources. Some schools are finding success in dealing with these issues through innovative uses of technologies. Moving curricula online, adopting online pedagogies that emphasize exploration and collaboration, designing engaging activities such as “serious games,” and implementing online learning communities are key to connecting with the iGeneration. This presentation looks at current research in innovative online education technologies, along with the presenter’s own work in the area.
Welcome to the Social LMS
PPTX Written and presented by Ken Baldauf at the California Business Educators Association State Conference in San Jose, CA, November 6, 2010Abstract: Tear down the classroom walls! Liberate your students! Become a more effective teacher by harnessing the power of community and social media. Students want to be active participants in the learning process. Teachers must engage them using the social media technologies with which students are most familiar. At Florida State University we are combining Blackboard with WordPress and BuddyPress to create an online learning community that promotes student collaboration through social media. The result is a Facebookish environment where student interaction and engagement thrives and teaching and learning is distributed across all participants. Come witness the future of education.

Emerge with Computers is an entirely new way of teaching computer concepts, issues and skills designed to appeal to the iGeneration through the use of the technologies with which they are accustomed.
Learning Frameworks for Digital Natives
PPTX Written and presented by Ken Baldauf at FSU’s School of Library and Information Studies Colloquium Series, January 27, 2010Abstract: Research from the Kaiser Family Foundation recently revealed that, when not in school, kids spend nearly all of their waking hours engaged with media: TV, music, books, movies, video games, and websites. The dominance of media, and digital life styles where kids maintain interpersonal relationships online, and do most of their learning online, present new challenges for educators wanting to connect with this generation of students. A new pedagogical approach is needed. An approach that addresses student’s individual needs, while building a learning community. This presentation will explore online tools that can be leveraged to support such an approach.

PPT March 16, 2005
Written and presented by Ken Baldauf at the Thomson/Course Technology 2005 Conference in OrlandoAbstract: The National Educational Technology Standards (NETS) program has defined what K-12 students should know about technology and be able to do with technology. NETS has been adopted by educational boards in 49 states who are pressing hard to integrate technology into their K-12 curriculums. NETS may effectively migrate most or all of the concepts and skills taught in today’s college-level introductory technology course to the K-12 curriculum. Will NETS provide true pre-college computer literacy? What will become of the college-level intro course when all incoming freshmen are already computer literate? This session will examine these issues and provide a peek into the future of computer literacy in colleges.
