Can't wait for the kinks to get "ironed out". Can't imagine that these tables won't captivate and inspire our students.

Educational Technology Buzzwords

Educational Technology Buzzwords | Kenya School Report - 21st Century Learning and Teaching | Scoop.it

Education buzzwords have for a long time driven me insane as we spend our lives in schools latching on to phrase after phrase that tries to make us sound more knowledgeable without actually being more knowledgeable. I fear sometimes us “tech geeks” in schools ( definitely me included) are getting caught in the same trap as we move from one innovation to the next just to look more tech savvy than the next guy. This is a long list of edtech trends and pedagogies. It can seem quite daunting to the uninitiated and we can scare them off trying something really useful if keep pushing for more change.

10 Incredibly Powerful Teaching Tools of the Future | Edudemic

10 Incredibly Powerful Teaching Tools of the Future | Edudemic | Kenya School Report - 21st Century Learning and Teaching | Scoop.it

Utopian visions of learning are tempting, if for no other reason than they absolve us of accountability to create it right now, leading to nebulous romanticizing about how powerful learning could be if we just did more of X and Y.

10 New Ways Twitter Is Changing The College Lecture

10 New Ways Twitter Is Changing The College Lecture | Kenya School Report - 21st Century Learning and Teaching | Scoop.it

Continuing our theme of using Twitter in education this week, we bring you a look at the ways Twitter is causing the current lecture model to evolve. The following analysis is brought to you by our content partners over at Online Universities.

 

Gone is the time when PowerPoint was the most impressive communication technology in the lecture hall. These days, students and professors enjoy the power of Twitter, a tool that allows for digital discussions to supplement and even guide lecture sessions. So how exactly is Twitter changing the college lecture as we know it?

 

Read on to find out about 10 different ways.

 

- Mobile devices are welcome in the lecture hall once again

- Lectures become a conversation

- Bashful students are speaking up

- More students get connected in large lectures

- Students stay engaged beyond the lecture

- Dorm discussions don’t happen as much anymore, and that’s OK

- There’s more information saved now than ever before

- Students think about lectures even when they’re not at school

- Review sessions happen anywhere

- Fewer classroom disruptions exist

What Type of Learner Are You? [Infographic]

What Type of Learner Are You? [Infographic] | Kenya School Report - 21st Century Learning and Teaching | Scoop.it

As practitioners will already know, the way that one learner studies may differ from the way that a classmate does, because of their different styles of learning.

 

The four types are...

- visual learners,
- auditory learners,
- read and write learners, and
- kinesthetics learners.

 

Each function is clearly illustrated and explained in this infographic produced by onlinecollege.org.

 

Learning suggestions, and which tests the learner types are likely to excel in better than others, are provided.

 

This is a helpful guide for...

- IAG Practitioners

- Learners

- Initial Teacher Training

- educators, especially those who are adamant that there is only one way to revise.

Tenured Professor Departs Stanford U., Hoping to Teach 500,000 Students at Online Start-Up - Wired Campus - The Chronicle of Higher Education | Kenya School Report - 21st Century Learning and Teaching | Scoop.it

I am curious to see how this turns out. This reminds me of a program to be offered by UBC (NextGenU), where health sciences courses will be offered online for free to encourage participation from students in developing worlds. More importantly, the NextGenU program will offer an equivalent of a master’s degree in public health, called a Certificate in Public Health, endorsed by the American Association of Public Health Physicians, the Public Health Foundation of India and the Presbyterian University of East Africa in Kenya  - making education accessible.
