Holistic approaches for Learning with Technology

Holistic approaches for Learning with Technology | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
“Informational technology needs to be holistically integrated into our learning environments. The integration of information technology into our unique learning environments can be greatly enhanced if we apply constructivist approaches. Such approaches could include, but are not limited to discovery learning, inquiry based learning, play-based learning and making. But they also include listening, reflecting, and taking the time to process. Essentially, we want our learners to become great thinkers. We want learners to take an active role in the learning process and move away from the passive regurgitation of information being passed from a teacher to a student. Effective infusion of information technology into our learning environments is an excellent way to achieve this. In our world, information technology is not just a means to an end. It more about the information and how we use it that is the most important. How to find it, how to process it, how to use it, and how to build on it. The technology we use facilitates and re-shapes this use of information in many new ways. For instance, no longer are we following learning in a linear fashion, say, based on a textbook. Rather, we are working in flexible frameworks where learners can focus on big ideas, but follow their learning along multiple paths happening all at once in the learning environment.”

Carlos Rodrigues Cadre's curator insight, July 31, 9:54 AM

Aprender com a experiência direta pode ser mais eficaz se conjugada com a reflexão, isto é, a tentativa intencional de sintetizar, abstrato, e articular as principais lições ensinadas pela experiência.


Refletindo sobre o que foi aprendido torna a experiência mais produtiva.


Reflexão constrói sua confiança na capacidade para atingir um objetivo (ou seja, auto-eficácia), que por sua vez se traduz em taxas mais elevadas de aprendizado.


Andres Garcia Alvarez's curator insight, August 1, 6:19 PM

Learning from direct experience can be more effective if coupled with reflection-that is, the intentional attempt to synthesize, abstract, and articulate the key lessons taught by experience.


Reflecting on what has been learned makes experience more productive.


Reflection builds one's confidence in the ability to achieve a goal (i.e., self-efficacy), which in turn translates into higher rates of learning.

Microsoft Released A New Website to Help Teachers Use Minecraft in Their Classes ^ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

by Med Kharbach

"Minecraft is an immersive learning environment that has started as a game about creating, exploring and managing resources before it becomes one of the leading educational learning platforms for students. A few days ago, Microsoft, Minecraft’s parent company, announced the release of a new website, Minecraft for Education, geared towards providing teachers with a forum where they can share their ideas about how they use Minecraft in their teaching."

6 Reasons Why Puppets Will Change Your Classroom Forever - Edutopia #makered

6 Reasons Why Puppets Will Change Your Classroom Forever - Edutopia #makered | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
“ Puppet creation requires making mistakes. Your first puppet will always be very, very special. Students learn fairly quickly that what they see in their mind is not the same as what they can make with their hands. Abraham Lincoln turns into a Rastafarian cyclops. Taylor Swift becomes a married older chicken. Mistakes in puppet making allow kids to fail in a very low-risk way. They get a practical lesson in imperfection. They also get a lesson in following directions. Some students cut a hole, rather than a straight line, for their mouth. Helping them fix their mistakes reinforces the establishment of a growth mindset.”

"At EdTechTeacher, we have the benefit of working with and hearing from educators from around the world. However, until now, we haven't had a way to curate all of these great ideas into one place. Since we often use collaborative eBooks as a great example of how to share ideas while creating an amazing, media-rich learning artifact, we decided to leverage the power of Book Creator (available on iOS and Android) to create a Teacher Activity Book."

“ Quietly and almost covertly, Apple’s iPad has become a common tool in every realm of professional design. Fashion designers sketch on it, designers collect and curate ideas using it, digital artists paint with it in stunning realism, and architects even prepare 3D models before going to production all from the 9.7″ screen. The device is a near ubiquitous sight inside studios, design shops, and most noticeably at trade shows, an ideal compromise when the pocketability of the smartphone is too little and a laptop is just too large. For a demographic regularly relying upon composing, showing, and sharing projects, the iPad is Goldilocks perfect. Here are several of our favorite iPad apps for creatives with content creation and collaboration in mind.”

How Minecraft and Duct Tape Wallets Prepare Our Kids for Jobs That Don’t Exist Yet (EdSurge News)

How Minecraft and Duct Tape Wallets Prepare Our Kids for Jobs That Don’t Exist Yet (EdSurge News) | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
Whether it’s Minecraft or duct tape wallets, the childhood passions that seem like fads, if not totally unproductive, can alternatively be seen as mediums for experiencing the virtuous cycle of curiosity: discovering, trying, failing and growing. At DIY, we’ve created a way for kids to explore hundreds of skills and to understand the ways in which they can be creative through them. Often, the skills are unconventional, and almost always the results are surprising. I don’t think it’s important that kids use the skills they learn on DIY for the rest of their lives. What’s important is that kids develop the muscle to be fearless learners so that they are never stuck with the skills they have. Only this will prepare them for a world where change is accelerating and depending on a single skill to provide a lifetime career is becoming impossible.

ISTE 2015: Takeaway Tips for a Library Maker Space | ISTE 2015

ISTE 2015: Takeaway Tips for a Library Maker Space | ISTE 2015 | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
The maker movement was front and center at the 2015 ISTE conference—and that’s a good thing for me. After following maker initiatives with great interest for some time now, I have the opportunity to design a maker space this year for 6th–12th grade students at my school, Worcester (MA) Academy.


A search of this year’s program at ISTE, held June 28 to July 1 in Philadelphia, using the term “constructivist learning/maker movement” resulted in 67 related sessions. The ISTE Librarians Network hosted a maker station at their Digital Age Playground and convened a panel on library maker spaces, featuring elementary and middle school librarians, a school administrator, and the coordinator of a public library maker initiative. Vendors and exhibitors demonstrated tools, lessons, and ideas for maker spaces. Meanwhile, a four-hour Maker Playground Wednesday morning drew a huge crowd of attendees.


One of my goals at the conference was to gather ideas and tips to help me create my library’s maker space. Here are some highlights of what I discovered at ISTE."
