Gamify your classrooms with Kahoot. | ipadders.eu

Gamify your classrooms with Kahoot. | ipadders.eu | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
"This week I’ve been getting excited about using Kahoot in the classroom. Kahoot delivers online quizzes and surveys to your students. It works very similar to the more well-known Socrative. The teacher displays the question and the answers on the beamer or tv in the front of the classroom. The students see the corresponding icon and color on their screen. They have 30 seconds to answer on their devices and get points for every question they answer right. The quicker they answer the more points they receive. After each question the top 5 students are shown on the board with their scores. This is where it gets exciting. The students love this immediate feedback and want to get to the top position. I have never seen students so focused on answering the questions correctly."

IT and Education Are Like Peanut Butter and Jelly

IT and Education Are Like Peanut Butter and Jelly | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
The tech and instructional sides of a school are distinct and unique, but when they work together, they’re an unstoppable combo.
Darlene Clapham K12's insight:

I had to post this article, because I so believe that a partnership between teaching/learning and I.T is critical or a huge contributing factor to the success of an educational institution. In fact, this concept should apply throughout any organization. Technology is now an important ingredient to education, business, health care, government etc...etc.. As a tech professional, I feel fortunate that we do work closely with our teaching/learning & business partners. The more this concept gets engrained deeper into the workplace philosophies, the more success organizations will see. What do you think?

The Backchannel: Giving Every Student a Voice in the Blended Mobile Classroom

The Backchannel: Giving Every Student a Voice in the Blended Mobile Classroom | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

Over 12 years ago, as Todd Curtis and his teaching partner tried to get all of their eighth graders engaged in class discussions, they noticed a trend. Though students talked freely outside of class, they became silent in class. As an experiment, they jury-rigged their email system into a backchannel.

Elizabeth Dalton's curator insight, May 24, 2014 9:35 AM

This is something I had not thought a lot about, but with the growth of Blended Learning throughout our systems of learning, it makes so much sense to include this in our planning.  This article gives some great examples and ideas about tools and backchanneling for our learners.  I think this has great promise for reinforcing adult learning as well.

To Be a Better Leader, Learn How to Learn

To Be a Better Leader, Learn How to Learn | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

Here’s the problem: More than ever before, change is the rule, not the exception, in business. Globalization means more competition. The technology that makes you better than your competition today is obsolete tomorrow. Any knowledge you already possess is depreciating at an accelerating rate. How do you cope with the instability of it all? 

 


Via Kenneth Mikkelsen, Mark E. Deschaine, PhD
Darlene Clapham K12's insight:

It's an interesting time this era of rapid technology changes, globalization and connected social learning networks. I often hear in business and education, this is how we have always done it. I agree that lessons learned are extremely important. However,  I also think that we need to be creative enough to visualize new ways of reaching our goals that are possibly different but more efficient or effective. Being creative and adaptive to change is what makes organizations unique, progressive and ultimately successful. If you think of yourself and your place of work as learning leaders, this I believe opens the door to creative ideas and innovations that can be very fruitful. Let's not only be learners, let's open the door to be learners who want to explore new, creative and courageous ways of doing business or educating. I believe this will ultimately lead to personal and professional growth and benefit your place of work and ultimately the reason why we were hired.

Excellent tips!

 

I would like to offer one key philosophy that we at our company have been offering to our leaders.....Learning is not enough, we as leaders need to be constantly learning, unlearning, and re-learning.  The game has changed and the rules are evolving by the minute. 

 

Keep your running shoes on, the ride is exciting as long as you remain open, flexible, and adaptable to change.  Remember, if it is difficult...you are about to grow and learn something new. 

 

Hope you enjoy the article and my humble nuggets:)

Christopher Janney's curator insight, May 28, 2014 8:23 AM

The way we understand leadership today needs to evolve. Understanding that what you once knew that got you where you are is not enough to keep going is important. Understanding the new responsibilities and expectations of leaders is important. For instance, being a good leader sometimes means being a good follower. And as this article points out, a good leader is a consummate learner. Without that, the things you are leading people to have already passed and others are already on to the next thing.

The Invisible iPad: It’s Not About the Device

The Invisible iPad: It’s Not About the Device | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
The challenge for educators, especially directors of educational technology, is not to limit how our teachers teach, but to focus on the foundational skills and provide a clear and concrete formula for how different technological devices and applications will enhance these skills in order to give a learner the ability to create a product that will change the world.
Darlene Clapham K12's insight:

I love this quote: Yossie Frankel stated it simply: We cannot confuse digital literacy with 21st century competencies. If we do, we rob our students of what we really can offer them, which is the ability to communicate, think critically, collaborate, solve problems, and create dynamic ways of internalizing information and sharing it with others

We’ve shared a number of these inspiring talks in the past – some relate specifically to teaching, others cover more general life lessons or inspiration. So it is finally May, and even the coldest of climates are emerging out of winter into spring by now, we’re sharing a few more great videos to put some spring in your step.

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.
