The Pedagogical Framework | e-Didaktik | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it
The pedagogical framework of eDidaktik.dk can form the basis for an assessment of whether a digital learning tool is suitable for use in a specific teaching situation. It is based upon a distinction between a monological, a dialogical and a polyphonic form of teaching.
Ricard Garcia's insight:

It is always inspiring to find resources in order to assess both if a learning tool is useful and also our students outcomes with that tool.

Three ways to use Minecraft imaginatively in the classroom - the guardian

Three ways to use Minecraft imaginatively in the classroom - the guardian | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it
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.

Lisa Gorman's curator insight, March 26, 7:02 PM

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!

The basic cognitive skills needed by previous generations are no longer enough. Students in the conceptual age must also master the higher levels of Bloom’s Taxonomy and Maslow’s hierarchy of needs, including creation, metacognition and self-actualization.

“It will require an upgrade to our curriculum, new instructional methods and materials, a new profile of a global graduate and an open mind,” say Smith, Chavez and Seaman.

Shakespeare Comes Alive: Apps to Create Performance - AP Lit Help

Shakespeare Comes Alive: Apps to Create Performance - AP Lit Help | Create: 2.0 Tools... and ESL | Scoop.it
Think back to your experiences learning Shakespeare when you were in high school. Rather than simply reading the play, the teacher probably told you that you would be performing it in class. While this sounds like it might be fun, it probably devolved into a few apathetic students standing at the front of the room reading in monotone voices.

Students learn Shakespeare when they perform Shakespeare. They understand his words when they can truly interact with them. Unfortunately, most of our students aren’t actors, and they really aren’t comfortable performing in front of their classmates. How can we get our students to engage with Hamlet & Macbeth in ways that won’t bore or embarrass them?

There are some amazing tools available for iOS devices that will allow your students to create projects that force them to connect with the text in fun and exciting ways.
