    K12OnlineConference.org Presentation on Thursday, December 10, 2009 To begin, I want you to know I created a wiki that expands upon the notions I discuss in this presentation/video. If you find what I say interesting, carry your learning beyond the boundaries of the MOV and visit tr.im/bridginggaps. If you wonder what a "well-educated" student will look like in our constantly shifting, interconnected, globalized society; if you want to know what teachers and administrators need to know about teaching and learning in the 21st Century; if you are ready to learn about newer, more effective ways of teaching that engage, challenge and inspire students; this is the session for you. In this video I will present a vision for teaching and learning in the 21st century that is evolving as I explore the intersection of pedagogy and the digital culture. There are twelve critical bridges that span competing conditions I have experienced that we must all acknowledge, experience and understand if we are to move toward the emerging new story of learning. 1. Building Learning Communities: Distant ~ Flat 2. Community Norms: Reserved ~ Confident 3. Boot Camp: Learned ~ Learning 4. Learning and Teaching: Compliance ~ Community 5. Read-Write Web: Repository ~ Participatory 6. Building a Network: Possess ~ Share 7. Leadership and Planning: Consistent ~ Innovative 8. Mental Models: Informed ~ Wise 9. Establishing Identity: Directed ~ Autonomous 10. Presentation Skills: Deliver ~ Engage 11. Learning Environment: Contained ~ Open 12. Map of Community Values: Change ~ Transformation

              A 14 minute overview of the Rafael Lozano-Hemmer exhibition at the MCA, 'Reflections' of Summer 2011, in Sydney, Australia. Looking at the use of Augmented Realities (AR), security technologies and interactive multimodalities to create artworks. The review discusses a few exhibition pieces briefly as examples for the use of Kinect in the classroom to build knowledge of participatory culture, gesture and spatial modes as discussed in the Australian Curriculum of 2011 and to advocate for school visits to this exhibition - or, at the least, to use these ideas for experiments with Kinect in the classroom for art projects and creative expression. This relates to the TPACK@UC project of 2011 and 2012 and the subversion of emergent technologies for school use.
