Mr P's ICT blog - Tech to raise standards!: Creating effective storyboards using the iPad!

Mr P's ICT blog - Tech to raise standards!: Creating effective storyboards using the iPad! | Tech Help for Teachers | Scoop.it
One of my favourite classroom resources is Mat Sullivan's book - Developing Writing Through Comics! Not only is it packed with fantastic ideas to improve writing but it uses a camouflage learning approach by focusing on children's love for comics!

Within the book, Mat discusses using comic strips as a storyboard for writing. Adapting this approach, I have been looking at how iPads can enhance this idea and gave it a go with year three today.

Today we planned to create a comic strip to be used as a storyboard for our writing. We were creating narratives about visiting a Winter Wonderland where we would meet Father Christmas. First step... setting! There was only one way to hook children to write well about the setting... let them build it!

One of 21st-century life's cruelest ironies is that technology has saved us a lot of time, which we then turn around and spend using said technology. American attention spans have dropped to a demoralizing five minutes. Most of us are constantly being bombarded by distractions, from coworkers to texts and emails to enticing Web headlines.   http://goo.gl/Ksdrqj

The Next National Education Technology Plan | EdSurge News

The Next National Education Technology Plan | EdSurge News | Tech Help for Teachers | Scoop.it


“The future is here; it’s just not evenly distributed.”

"A variation of the prophetic quote attributed to cyberpunk novelist, William Gibson, introduces the  2016 National Education Technology Plan (NETP) released today by the U.S. Department of Education.

“If the technology revolution only happens for families that already have money and education,” writes Arne Duncan, outgoing Secretary of Education, “then it’s not really a revolution.”

This emphasis on equity, and ensuring that all teachers and learners of all backgrounds have access to quality technology tools, anchors the many ambitious goals laid in this fourth and latest national education technology plan. The 106-page document envisions what education could look like in coming years, describes how technology can play a role, and outlines steps that education leaders, entrepreneurs, teachers, researchers, policymakers and others can take."

I love that the first tip is to think in terms of function. New and shiny doesn't necessarily equate to better. I also love the idea of letting students lead the way and be comfortable with regular experimentation. This is an excellent article to share with teachers whether they are newbies or seasoned veterans to teaching with technology.

This blog entry shares about the benefits of podcasts for instructors. I would also suggest Stitcher as a good podcast app for your mobile devices. If your interested in social work issues, then subscribe to the UB School of Social Work podcast, inSocialWork (www.inSocialWork.org).
