iPads: From Pedagogical Crutch to Education Innovation

iPads: From Pedagogical Crutch to Education Innovation | 21st century learning - understanding the digital generation | Scoop.it

For students who struggle with output, the option now exists to record ideas directly "onto a page." Similarly, teachers can leave audio feedback for students who benefit from hearing input multiple times. With the built-in camera, students can quickly snap pictures of class notes on a board, or record a quick video of teacher instruction. Leveraging just these few features has the potential to personalize learning and differentiate instruction where it might otherwise be impossible.

Some interesting tips and insights.

diane gusa's curator insight, July 13, 2013 10:28 AM

We have a long way to go to understand best practices for iPads, to move it from a play thing to integrated into creative pedagogy. However, "The Longest Journey begins with the First Step" and that is getting into the hands or teachers and learners.


imaginary library's curator insight, July 13, 2013 11:19 AM

The most important thing to do is to start with the wife of using the iPad if you have a sound pedagogical reason for using the iPad then you'll be a will to come up with uses that are appropriate.

Teachers learning about and with ICT as collaborative design

Teachers learning about and with ICT as collaborative design | 21st century learning - understanding the digital generation | Scoop.it

The key concept in all these initiatives is collaborative design. Collaboration and design have been increasingly promoted and explored in the years following the emergence of the WWW mostly because of the alignment of network technologies, a growing interest for the socially situated and communal nature of work and learning, and the development of design-based research as a promising approach to foster innovations in education. The notion of “communities of practice” has certainly provided useful conceptual tools to understand teaching as composed of a joint enterprise, a shared repertoire of knowledge and artifacts, and mutual engagement in community activities, roles, and relationships.

Collaborative design is certainly an area that's close to my heart and at the core of the true power of the internet and online learning.

Evelyn Izquierdo's curator insight, June 22, 2013 3:53 PM

Collaboration in a must when using ICT. Based on that purpose, communities of practice become useful spaces to share, learn and grow together professionally. If you are starting in the ICT field, I recommend you to websearch about "well known" or "recognized" communities in your teaching field; as well as creating a Twitter  account, so you can start building your personal learning network (PLN). Follow the leaders in your field, very soon you will be participating in collaborative projects; sharing ideas, resources and materials; or simply enjoying your new discoveries. :)

Google is usually one of the first places students turn to when tasked with an assignment. Whether it’s for research, real-time results, or just a little digital exploration … it’s important they know how to properly Google. Lucky for teachers (and students, of course), Google has a handy set of lesson plans that are just waiting to be unleashed upon the leaders of tomorrow.

Flipping Bloom’s Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice

Flipping Bloom’s Taxonomy | Powerful Learning Practice | 21st century learning - understanding the digital generation | Scoop.it

Many teachers in many classrooms spend the majority of their time in the basement of the taxonomy, never really addressing or developing the higher order thinking skills that kids need to develop. We end up with rote and boring classrooms. Rote and boring curriculum. Much of today’s standardized testing rigorously tests the basement, further anchoring the focus of learning at the bottom steps, which is not beneficial for our students.

Social Professional Learning

Social Professional Learning | 21st century learning - understanding the digital generation | Scoop.it

Social Professional Learning is a method of developing in teachers the confidence and process they may need to connect with others professionally online. This is a big deal for many educators who may be unsure of social media, or who may be resistant to it due to some preconceived notions. I want to share with you my belief that social professional learning is not only worth your time, but it may actually change your perspectives on professional learning in general.

Building Good Search Skills: What Students Need to Know | 21st century learning - understanding the digital generation | Scoop.it

Search competency is a form of literacy, like learning a language or subject. Like any literacy, it requires having discrete skills as well as accumulating experience in how and when to use them. But this kind of intuition can’t be taught in a day or even in a unit – it has to be built up through exercise and with the guidance of instructors while students take on researching challenges.

Curricular Opportunities in the Digital Age

Curricular Opportunities in the Digital Age | 21st century learning - understanding the digital generation | Scoop.it

This paper explores how new digital technologies can be used to design curricula that are flexible enough to adapt readily to individual differences. The authors propose that universal design for learning—as the confluence of advances in the neuroscience of human variability and in multimedia technologies—can create an “ecology for learning” which provides rich, diverse, student-centered learning pathways for all students.

The model explains the antecedents to perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness of online learning systems by learner self-regulatory processes and behaviors, personality differences, and extrinsic factors such as technical support, technology training, and equipment accessibility. Personality variables that are proposed to affect self-regulation and learners' perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness are conscientiousness, openness to experience, general self-efficacy, and risk propensity.

Groups tend to learn through “discussion, clarification of ideas, and evaluation of other’s ideas”. Perhaps information that is discussed is retained in long term memory. Research by Webb suggests that students who worked collaboratively on math computational problems earned significantly higher scores than those who worked alone. Plus, students who demonstrated lower levels of achievement improved when working in diverse groups.

The Digital Transformation of Education: A 21st Century Imperative | 21st century learning - understanding the digital generation | Scoop.it

For many of us, technology plays a crucial role in how we obtain and process information and apply our knowledge on a daily basis. As a father who often finds himself having to share his smartphone and tablet with his three young sons, I can tell you that for our students, things are no different. And because children are often exposed to technology at an early age, their cognitive abilities are even more wrapped up in technology than ours.
