GooseChase - How It Works | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it

Photo proof is required to receive points for a mission. Luckily, our smartphone apps make completing a mission incredibly easy.
Just select the mission you want to complete from the mission list, take a picture with the phone's camera and press the submit button. You'll receive the points right away, but remember that all photos are subject to review. This means that you can lose those points at any time if the photo isn't good enough.

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom

How flipped learning works in (and out of) the classroom | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | 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.

Excited shouts of “left, left, left”, “knock down that tree” or “pick up that stone” can only mean one thing: your students have discovered the virtual world of Minecraft.

Since its launch in 2011, children and adults worldwide have spent hours creating unique environments. The video game generates a blank landscape of different terrains that players explore. They construct buildings, mine for useful materials and, depending on what mode you’re in, may have to defend yourself from attacks or stave off hunger

The Technology is Brilliant but the Magic Happens When Teachers Learn to Let Go - TeacherswithApps

The Technology is Brilliant but the Magic Happens When Teachers Learn to Let Go - TeacherswithApps | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it
The Technology is Brilliant but the Magic Happens When Teachers Learn to Let Go – I focus on the power of the iPad to increase students’ growth and development, self-reliance and independence, with a strong emphasis on study skills. Yes, content is a covered also, and I choose apps accordingly, yet always knowing that this powerful tool needs the guidance of an instructor who is willing to let go.  I wrote this blog quite awhile back, still seems relevant: I Know My Way Around an iPad. Here I discussed the distinction between knowing how to use an iPad and knowing how to teach lessons to a class of students with iPads in hand.

Actually teaching a class of students with iPads, is a very different scenario than any other tech integration. As comfortable as I am with technology, it is new territory teaching kids when they have the world at their fingertips and the majority of them are way more tech savvy than you or I will ever will be.

I have a great admiration for the thinking of Sir Ken Robinson... He speaks so eloquently and argues for creative learning...and so much more...

 

A stand out quote for me from this interview;

 

"What tends to dull the appetite [for learning] is being force fed things that people can't see an immediately relevance in or don't have an immediate interest in it...or where they are forced to learn in situations where they are inimitable... you know, 8 hours a day, sit still, do as you're told."

 

Bring on different ways of engaging with people around learning so that they not only 'get it' but they really enjoy it and become life long learners.

 

I recommend this 15 minute video to you!
