Students as Contributors: A Podcast with Silvia Tolisano

Share this...

In this podcast, Alan interviews Silvia Tolisano, 21st Century Learning Specialist, along with other administrators, teachers and students at Martin J. Gottlieb School. Here, students are being encouraged to take more of a leadership role in their learning as they take part in a variety of jobs inspired by Alan November’s article, Students as Contributors: The Digital Learning Farm.

The jobs these students are doing give them a great deal of responsibility and provide them with authentic tasks that result in meaningful content that supplements their learning and connects them with experts from around the world.

Silvia will be a presenter at the 2011 Building Learning Communities Conference. Click here for more information and to register.

  1. Sylvia (and everyone else),

    Thanks so much for sharing what you are doing. I really found it inspiring. I had a Skype conference with Kindergarten today and because of your ideas I had some fifth graders as videographer, photographer, and creating a SMARTBoard game for the class.

    I also plan to share it with my principal.

    I am working as a Technology Instructional Partner (or coach) at my school. I have trouble keeping track of all I do all day. Sylvia’s mention of ‘just in time’ PD reminded me that I forget to keep track of the many times a day that this happens. It may be only two minutes, but it is the most important thing I do.
