Calling all gardeners, foodies, and critical inquirers! On this episode of TTT meet teachers who have been developing amazing projects around food. We are joined by Joseph Franzen and Brent Peters along with one of their students, Devin Brown. In additon Lauren Goldberg, Elfe Dona, and Karen Fasimpaur add to this rich conversation about what happens when we focus on the relationships students have with food.

Here are a couple of teasers:

Before becoming an English teacher and Bread Loaf student, Brent Peters worked as a chef at the Mayan Café in Louisville, Kentucky. Joe Franzen has been an urban gardener, sustainability enthusiast, environmental educator, and kitchen magician for years. He has turned Fern Creek Traditional High School into an “edible campus.”

See how Joe and Brent helped connect their students from Louisville with youths in the Navajo Nation: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CJoEdHe-p3s

Also take a look at Lauren Goldberg’s article in the English Journal, “Herbivores, Carnivores, and Literavores: Argument and Appetite in the Classroom”http://www.ncte.org/library/NCTEFiles/Resources/Journals/EJ/1026-jul2013/EJ1026Herb.pdf

We’d love to hear how your students have used food, gardening, and critical inquiry in their learning. What a rich place this is for learning — for all of us!

Here’s a Digital Is http://digitalis.nwp.org/ resource on this topic, written by one of our frequent (and always welcomed) guests on TTT, Karen Fasimpaur:

Why does “open” matter?

Creative Commons Licence

There is a lot of talk about “open” these days. It’s the new black. It’s cool and hip, and marketeers are calling their products “open,” whether they are or not.

But what does “open” really mean? And why should we care?

For the purposes of this discussion, “open” refers to content that can be remixed, modified, and redistributed by anyone.

There’s an endless supply of free content on the Internet. How is open different from everything else that is free? In the United States, any content that is not public domain (by virtue of its age or designation as such by the creator) is copyrighted, whether or not it is indicated as such. Subject to certain excpeptions such as fair use, the copyright owner has exclusive rights to reproduce, prepare derivatives, and distribute the copyrighted work (section 107 of the copyright law).*

Open-licensed content, though, can be reused and redistributed without prior permission.

The most common open licenses are those provided by Creative Commons. An attachment below summarizes the various licenses and gives more info about open resources.

As educators, why should we care about open? Some of the reasons include economics, remixability, and promoting a culture of sharing. We’ll explore each of these in the chapters that follow.

On this episode of TTT we discuss social media in education with several high school students. We are joined by:

Paige is on a mission, and we learn a lot by when Joanna’s students who are working on http://youthvoices.net join her in this conversation.

Here’s what Paige wrote recently on Shane Haggerty’s blog http://publicassemblypr.com/2013/10/31/what-i-learned-one-students-mission/:

Changing the education system is difficult, but tangible.

For the past three months I have focused on integrating social media into the education system and, surprisingly, have found countless administrators, teachers, and social media gurus alike that are passionate about assisting me in my mission.

My social media education mission began with a simple Twitter account and blog on WordPress, yet my ultimate goal is to film a DVD to sell to school administrators that will explain why social media is beneficial in the classroom and how it can be incorporated into the curriculum.

Paige also writes (in an email):

I am really interested in students’ responsibility on social media and why they should monitor what they share, as college admissions and future employers alike research you on social media before accepting you into their college/university or allow you to represent their business.

I am also advocating for social media usage in the classroom because it exposes students to countless opportunities unavailable to them in their school district. As an example, without the use of social media and networking, I would not have made a presentation to Howard Rheingold’s class at Stanford University.

I am happy to brainstorm any other ideas as well.

TTT#373 Educating for Democracy in the Digital Age – NWP Annual Meeting – Young Whan Choi, Jo Paraiso, Paul Oh – 11.21.13 http://www.teachersteachingteachers.org/ttt373-educating-for-democracy-in-the-digital-age-nwp-annual-meeting-young-whan-choi-jo-paraiso-paul-oh-11-21-13/ http://www.teachersteachingteachers.org/ttt373-educating-for-democracy-in-the-digital-age-nwp-annual-meeting-young-whan-choi-jo-paraiso-paul-oh-11-21-13/#comments Wed, 01 Jan 2014 02:45:45 +0000 http://www.teachersteachingteachers.org/?p=20354 Download.

This is a special episode of TTT, edited from a recording of a session at the National Writing Project’s Annual Meeting in Boston on November 21, 2013. In addition to the presenters, listed below, we are joined by Johanna’s amazing students and the thoughtful participants in this session.

Here’s how we described this session:

B7: Educating for Democracy in the Digital Age

1:30pm – 3:00pm Hynes, Level 1, 104

How do we help youth understand the potential for writing to have impact, leveraging authentic purposes and today’s online platforms? How do we prepare youth to be informed, engaged civic actors—community ready, in other words—and not simply college and career ready? The National Writing Project is partnering with the Oakland Unified School District (OUSD) and the Civic Engagement Research Group at Mills College to undertake a district-wide effort called, “Educating for Democracy in the Digital Age.” Join Paul Allison of the New York City Writing Project, and Jo Paraiso and Young Whan Choi of the OUSD, as they discuss—in person and virtually—a working partnership that leverages the Youth Voices platform as a means to support civic engagement in schools.

Presenter(s):
Paul Allison, New York City Writing Project 
Paul Oh, National Writing Project 
Johanna Paraiso, Oakland Unified School District 
Young Whan Choi, Oakland Unified School District 

On March 29, 2013 Paul Oh blogged in dComposing

What’s significant to me about the Educating for Democracy in the Digital Age effort, beyond its mission of youth civic engagement, is that OUSD teachers have taken on a great deal of the leadership – so there’s a grassroots, locally informed relevance to the work- and that it joins together in-school and out-of-school educational opportunities. Youth have gotten to work with nearby partners like KQED http://blogs.kqed.org/lowdown/ and far-flung partners like Youth Voices http://youthvoices.net. Ultimately, the hope is that all HS youth before they graduate will be able to engage in a capstone project that demonstrates the skill of issue analysis, the ability to take action, and a reflective stance. As one of my EDDA colleagues from OUSD, Young-Whan Choi, has said, we want our youth to come away from this educational opportunity – and their entire school career – not just college and career ready, but community ready. http://dcomposing.com/2013/03/29/educating-for-democracy-in-the-digital-age/

 

We are planning a follow-up TTT webcast with Young Whan Choi, Paul Oh, and teachers involved in “Educating for Democracy in the Digital Age” at 9PM Eastern/6PM Pacific on Wednesday, January 22, 2014. Please plan to join us at EdTechTalk/ttt http://edtechtalk.com/ttt
