50 Reasons to Embrace Google Classroom - Fractus Learning | 21st century learning and education | Scoop.it

"But the most impactful positive force for teachers in applying Google Classroom and other ed-tech products has been their peers. The practicing teachers, who have become experts in applying technology and have become mentors for others, provide something valuable well beyond the tools… that is, practical advice, solutions to problems, and confidence. These teachers – these mentors – find solutions to real teaching problems and innovate new ways to do things using technology. More importantly, they share these solutions openly and always look for ways to improve."

10 Ways to Improve Student Brainstorming | John Spencer

10 Ways to Improve Student Brainstorming | John Spencer | 21st century learning and education | Scoop.it
One of the key components of the design thinking cycle is the ideating phase. In this phase, students start by brainstorming, followed by analyzing the ideas, and then creating a plan.

On the surface, brainstorming should be easy. It should be the most fun of this entire process. And yet . . . sometimes it doesn’t work that well.

I’ve noticed that students often struggle with brainstorming. This is especially true at the beginning of the year, when students might shrug their shoulders and say, “I don’t have any ideas.” The truth is that they do have ideas. Great ideas. However, in many cases, students are afraid to share their thoughts in a brainstorm. It’s even more challenging when there are a few eager students who are jumping at the chance to brainstorm while others sit back and watch.

So, how do we fix that?

10 reasons teachers do NOT use education technology - Daily Genius

10 reasons teachers do NOT use education technology - Daily Genius | 21st century learning and education | Scoop.it
There are plenty of reasons teachers do not use education technology. It’s expensive. It’s hard to always find a reason to implement edtech into a particular lesson. That’s all true and valid, really.

But what are the other big reasons that teachers don’t use technology in the classroom? We did a little digging through surveys, social media, blogs, reports, and the Daily Genius community to uncover the top 10 reasons that edtech is getting passed over. The results might (or might not) surprise you.

Heather Peretz's insight:

Having students create will help them with future endeavors. The collaboration and process that occurs when students work together for a common goal can change the way we think about lessons. Thank you Adam Schoebart for sharing your insight and experience with all of us so we can become creators!

Free Technology for Teachers: Transforming Learning Through Student Content Creation | 21st century learning and education | Scoop.it

"Inspired by ideas like project based learning and #20Time, I decided to take a stand against “Google-able questions.” Instead of students only finding information and curating content, they needed to create the learning for themselves. Our students live in a world of Web 2.0, social media, and content creation, and I needed to bring this into their learning.

And together, we did. Halfway through this school year, I explained that we will no longer produce work that is forgettable and can be left in a backpack. Instead, we will create content that we can be proud of, will remember, and will help each other learn."

Handy iPad Posters to Use in The First Week of School ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | 21st century learning and education | Scoop.it

"If you are planning to incorporate iPad in your classroom teaching then you definitely need to work on some preliminary stuff before anything else. These are basically formalities and conventions students need to abide by when using iPad in class. Making students explicitly aware of their responsibilities behind using iPad in class will certainly help you tap into the full educational potential of this versatile gadget. I have gone through my archive and picked out these handy visuals for you to use with your students."

3 Ways to Cultivate a Growth Mindset - Brilliant or Insane @AngelaStockman

3 Ways to Cultivate a Growth Mindset - Brilliant or Insane @AngelaStockman | 21st century learning and education | Scoop.it
Stanford University psychologist Carol Dweck’s best-selling book, Mindset: The New Psychology of Success, started a revolution in most of the schools that I work in this year, and for good reason: her findings are inspiring teachers and students and parents alike to rethink what it means to be a successful learner and what dispositions we must cultivate in order to make that vision a reality.

This a complex study, and reflecting as we read brings interesting considerations to the surface. For instance, how can we stop perseverating on performance in order to cultivate a growth mindset?

Nog een bron die duidelijk stelt dat lerenden beter presteren als we (hoge en haalbare) verwachtingen blijven stellen. Blijven reiken, ongeacht de leercontext. Zo lang de doelen die we (samen) stellen binnen bereik zijn, zullen leerlingen blijven groeien.

Changing the Mindset of Education: Every Learner is Unique | eSkills | Growth Mindset

Changing the Mindset of Education: Every Learner is Unique | eSkills | Growth Mindset | 21st century learning and education | Scoop.it
Stanford researcher Carol Dweck, in studying motivation and perseverance, found that children can be separated into two categories: those with a fixed mindset believe that their successes are a result of their innate talent or smarts; and those with a growth mindset believe that their successes are a result of hard work.

 

Children with a growth mindset see intelligence as something that can be cultivated: the more learning they do, the smarter they become. Those with a fixed mindset see themselves as either smart or not smart and believe that their intelligence cannot grow; no matter how hard they work. When children with fixed mindsets fail, they feel trapped and start thinking that they must not be as talented or smart as their peers.
