Life in a Inquiry Driven, Technology-Embedded, Connected Classroom: English

Life in a Inquiry Driven, Technology-Embedded, Connected Classroom: English | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
One of the most important things we can do is teach our students how to use social media wisely, and how social media can be used for social good. In grade 11 English this semester, we've chosen to create a social media campaign to raise awareness around modern slavery. It's not enough for my students to learn about slavery, they need to do something with it, specifically "real world" projects that matter.
Darlene Clapham K12's insight:

This is quite an amazing project. Have a read and watch the video. Well done Students!

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.”

Maker Ed is a ‘WAY’ not a ‘THING.’ -@KrissyVenosdale

Maker Ed is a ‘WAY’ not a ‘THING.’ -@KrissyVenosdale | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
“ If you’re about to build a MakerSpace in your school, don’t ask yourself what things you need. Ask yourself what ways you can do things differently. How can you turn your writing assignment into an open ended choice where kids can be more creative? How can you incoporate robotics into that book that already brings joy into your kindergarten classroom? How can you rearrange the room you already have, or use spraypaint to tone down a mismatched scheme of color to allow for student thought to fill the canvas of the room? How can kids drive the curriculum so that they are not solving problems written by someone in an office far away, but solving real problems that make their hearts beat to come to school. It’s just like the force. It’s not a thing. It’s a way. And it’s about finding a better one. Making school more.”

Upcoming iOS 9.3 Update a Potential Game Changer for Teaching with iPads

Upcoming iOS 9.3 Update a Potential Game Changer for Teaching with iPads | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
“ Those of us who use iPads in education were excited to hear about some new features in the upcoming iOS 9.3. It looks like Apple is making an effort in improving how iPads work in the classroom. A common complaint about iPads in schools was that they are difficult to share amongst multiple classes. Now, with 9.3, administrators and teachers will be able to have a lot more control over their student's individual iPads. Managing a class set of iPads has never been the easiest task. With this update, it should become a much better experience. Also, students will be able to “share” iPads in a much better and “cleaner” way. Individual profiles can be created so that multiple users can use the same iPad.”
