Teachers want more tech in the classroom—even VR headsets

Teachers want more tech in the classroom—even VR headsets | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

Long gone are the days when it was frowned upon for students to pull out a phone or laptop in a classroom. In the US alone, according to a survey conducted in the last two months from digital education company TES Global, 84% of teachers at the K-12 level are using some form of technology in their lessons

Get ‘Em Started! Use These Resources to Teach Coding to Kids | Make: | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
“ Teaching kids to code offers a lot of challenges that you don’t run into when instructing adults. Kids don’t have a ton of real world experience, so a lot of analogies fly over their heads. Abstract thinking can take a lot more effort, so you need to keep things more concrete. Many kids have extremely short attention spans, especially in groups. And if there isn’t a cool payoff almost immediately, they are going to get bored and zone out. All the lecturing in the world won’t get the lesson into their heads at that point. When teaching children programming, the goal is to empower them to understand the everyday systems they already use, and to know they have the skill to pick this kind of stuff up, both now and later in life. Not everyone wants to do software development for a living, no matter how smart of a career choice it is, but programming is creeping more and more into other fields every day.”

TED-ED clubs give students a platform for sharing ideas

TED-ED clubs give students a platform for sharing ideas | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

"From her years of teaching, [Mitzi] Stover knew that having students delve into their interests and personal experiences was one of the best ways to develop their passions — and in turn their public speaking. But presenting to the same classmates they saw every day was decidedly low-stakes and hardly helped her convince students they had a voice, let alone a global reach."That’s when she turned to TED, best known for a series of conferences centered around big ideas and engaging 15-minute presentations called TED Talks. Recently, TED has started an outreach of sorts to help mold the next generation of confident speakers, primarily through its education-focused arm — TED-ED — that features a lesson designer, original animated shorts inspired by teachers, and public speaking clubs."While teachers have been cribbing the TED format for years, letting students deliver fast-paced talks on big ideas, Stover took it a step further, applying to start an official TED-ED club, a process that involved an application and a live video interview. Stover has taught speaking for years, but even she came to dread the interview part with open-ended questions she couldn’t anticipate. “I try to push my students to take risks and get out there, but we teachers also have those moments of being intimidated,” she said."The interview went fine and Stover now runs TED-ED clubs in her two speech classes and an out-of-school club, where students meet during lunch or after school. The clubs give teachers like Stover access to a wealth of curricular materials, including 13 suggested lessons that cover everything from how to structure a talk to picking a good topic (although she can’t share lessons with colleagues unless they, too, complete the application process)."

How to Incubate Creativity in School Through Making and Discovery - Mind/Shift #makered

How to Incubate Creativity in School Through Making and Discovery - Mind/Shift #makered | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
“ Math teacher Laura Kretschmar gave students a rubric with specific goals around collaboration, communication and instructions to use various functions in the program, but not a lot else. She’s intentionally giving them a lot of freedom to play with the program, create cool designs and figure out what the functions do. “I think “y” means, like, going up,” says Juritzy Maldonado. “So to pull it up, I’m going to try to change the number.” She punches in 200 for “y” and watches the image she’s creating shift upward. Another group discovers that if they hit “repeat” multiple times, they can create a parachute-like design that they’ve figured out how to color in various ways. That wasn’t their original plan, but they’re running with it now.”
