Go where the bus can’t: 10 virtual field trip ideas | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
Field trips are complicated. Messy. Full of lots of work — and lots of paperwork. Thankfully, these days, you don’t need a bus, a bunch of permission slips and an adequate number of chaperones to take students to a magical learning experience. They’re out there for the taking, they’re free, and sometimes they’re instantly available [...]

The Future of Education Demands More Questions, Not Answers

The Future of Education Demands More Questions, Not Answers | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

Technology alone can't educate students. It’s not some mystical, magical ingredient one sprinkles over core curricula like salt on a meal. The magic is inside the child. If designed correctly, technology only extends the creative powers of the individual. Technology needn’t be “high-tech” to be effective, either. Chalk on a graphite board is one of the earliest forms of technology in the classroom; a printed book is a kind of machine; a magnifying glass is technology for investigation of the natural world; string is a tool for building things.

15 Cool Science Books For Kids: Experiments And More - FRACTUS LEARNING | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it
With all of the apps, electronics, kits, and games, it’s easy to forget that science books continue to be a fantastic resource for both education and entertainment.

There are countless science books available for kids of all ages and education levels. The best books teach scientific concepts and ideas through fun, memorable, and engaging content. Many books, and quite a few on this list provide multiple science experiments that can easily be performed at home, using common household items. Whether it’s a book of experiments and activities, a biography of a historically significant scientist, or simply a book of information that kids will find fascinating, science books for kids are a wonderful way to encourage children to explore science and the world around them.

My Reading Buddy Lives 1000 Miles Away

My Reading Buddy Lives 1000 Miles Away | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

I’m always looking for new ways to encourage my students to read. If you’re a primary teacher, I know you do, too. I encourage students to read alone. To read with their teacher. To read to a classmate. To read to a big buddy. To read to their parents or siblings. The more you read, the better reader you will be, so it just makes sense.

Because our classroom is connected with so many people OUTSDE the four walls of our physical space, I have sometimes been able to find a pre-service teacher or someone else who is willing to listen to my students read via Skype.

It. Was. Brilliant.

We give it two thumbs up and five stars.

I loved the inventiveness, the curiosity, and sheer ingenuity of the characters. I loved the development of each of the different personalities. I loved that the main character’s catch phrase becomes “just look at it from a new angle...

Disney is a fantastic story teller, Big Hero 6 is no exception. As I reflected on the movie, I kept making connections between the movie and the way that we teach. Like everything else I encounter, I watched with an educator world view. As such, I thought I would...write an “Everything I know about education, I learned from a movie” post.

Forensic Science for Kids

Forensic Science for Kids | 21st C Learning | Scoop.it

Forensic science offers a great opportunity to do a variety of scientific tests in one fun science project.

Creating a complete crime scene with the associated experiments for the students to do requires a lot of preparation.... 

...But, once you’ve created the crime scene, and have the lab supplies handy, it is much easier to set it up the second time around.

It can be fun to create your own crime scene, but try one that has already been tested first.If you find your really enjoy learning about forensic science, you might think about eventually getting a forensic psychology degree and pursuing a career in the field!

GEMS Mystery Festival has two forensics projects. One crime involves teddy bears, and the other may be a murder.
