The “WHY” Guide to #Edchat topics
Although many educational models and pedagogies can seem like a conveyer belt of fads sometimes, many of them at least focus on one or two key educational concerns. Regardless of whether you think it a passing fad, many of them have an aim that you should know about and be considering as a teacher in the 21st Century. I must admit though, as busy teachers, it is understandable that to fully implement a number of them is unrealistic. So here’s my summary of the key take-aways from each model that you should aim to implement in your teaching.

Cyndi Danner-Kuhn's insight:
The Influence of Technology on the English Language

The English language is constantly changing and evolving. This evolution has been aided significantly by the ever changing world of technology. While there are those that argue that the influence of technology has "dumbed down" the language, there are others who would claim that a language that does not evolve, is a dying language.

Dan Meyer's Dissertation

Title

Functionary: Learning to Communicate Mathematically in Online Environments

Bloggy Abstract

I took a collection of recommendations from researchers in the fields of online education and mathematics education and asked our friends at Desmos to tie them all together in a digital middle-school math lesson. These recommendations had never been synthesized before. We piloted and iterated that lesson for a year. I then tested that Desmos lesson against a typical online math lesson (lecture-based instruction followed by recall exercises) in a pretest-posttest design. Both conditions learned. The Desmos lesson learned more. (Read the technical abstract.)

Models of Technology Integration

Facilitator(s): Dr. Roland Rios with Miguel Guhlin

You're conducting walk-throughs and formal observation and you see teachers using technology. But, are they using it effectively? Are students being engaged, and is the teacher transforming learning through integration? In this session, you'll learn about two models of technology integration (the TPACK, SAMR, LOTI, and TIM Models) that will give you a theoretical (yet practical) framework to help guide discussion about tech integration.

Top Ways to Use Technology in the Classroom

Top Ways to Use Technology in the Classroom | Technology in the Classroom; 1:1 Laptops & iPads & MORE | Scoop.it
Even though spring has arrived and summer is sure to follow it doesn’t mean that our brains aren’t still continually thinking of how to best serve our students. With technology everywhere, it’s hard not to think of ways that you can use technology in the classroom. Digital learning starts with teachers, we are the ones that get to choose how and what technology in the classroom to use. With so many choices out there, it’s hard to choose. Not everything is feasible or even appropriate for that matter. Here are a few ways to bring technology in the classroom safely and responsibly.

There’s nothing that defines summer more than the classic road trip. Great plans, detours, getting lost, finding unexpected adventures, making memories. And when I think about taking road trips, I think about the people I’d most like to cruise with: all of you! I thought we could load up our virtual cars and take off to meet three teachers and their classrooms, in three parts of the country. We’ll get to learn more about who they are, peek into their classrooms with a special Zaption experience, and then learn more about their lessons through interviews and a Twitter chat.

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom | Technology in the Classroom; 1:1 Laptops & iPads & MORE | Scoop.it

Flipped learning is more than just having students do homework during the school day. It’s more than just putting the onus on students to teach themselves. In fact, it’s neither of those things. Don’t be fooled by simple explanations of flipped classrooms that simplify a highly complex undertaking.

We have to stop pretending...  Responding to Scott McLeod challenge.

When it comes to education, I say we have to stop pretending…

That it's OK for the majority of students to leave high school believing they are not good learners;That it is OK to believe anything less than in the inherent worth and value of every child;That schooling as it now exists is about increasing individual learning capability and not actually about enforcing compliance and conformance;That it's OK that politicians, the elite, and business-people have more influence over education than local parents, teachers, and the students themselves;That students are not capable of directing their own learning, and that this isn't the ultimate goal of education.Tagging monika hardy, Jackie Gerstein, Luba Vangelova, Pat Farenga, and Maria Droujkova. From Scott:  Please join us. When it comes to education, what are 5 things that we have to stop pretending? Post on your blog, tag 5 others, and share using the #makeschooldifferent hashtag. Feel free to also put the URL of your post in the comments area so others can find it! From Me: Add the hashtag #reclaimlearning. Posted by Steve Hargadon at 4:02 PM
