This is a guest post from Dr. Reshan Richards (@ReshanRichards), the director of education technology at Montclair Kimberely Academy and the developer of the Explain Everything screencasting app. This post previews his upcoming featured talk at the EdTechTeacher iPad Summit San Diego. I have recently been writing about the qualitative formative assessment toolkit (QFAT for short) which is something that has come out of my research on and practice with mobile devices, multimedia, and formative assessment. It is comprised of four media authoring approaches available on most smartphones, tablets, and laptops: making photos, taking screenshots, filming videos, and screencasting. Each...

Do You Rubric? A Useful Infographic for Educators

Do You Rubric? A Useful Infographic for Educators | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Rubrics… You know, those scoring guides that assist teachers with objectively evaluating student work. These same tools also provide teachers with a consistent framework using specific criteria to determine if and how learning objectives are achieved and skills are mastered. On the flip side, rubrics demystify the grading process for students by clearly stating, in age-appropriate terminology, the expectations of an assignment.

 

Regardless of whether or not you utilize rubrics, the must-see infographic shown below offers some pretty compelling rationale for promoting and/or reinforcing the implementation of this concept into every classroom.

So, when it comes to technology integration, how would you classify yourself—as a leader, a sharp one, the wood, a ferrule, an eraser or maybe you’re one of those hangers-on? What. The. What? Yeah, if you’re wondering what in the world I’m referring to, then you definitely want to check out the Pencil Metaphor graphic shown below—one that outlines six ways educators typically react to the utilization of technology for educational purposes.

I love the idea of having a mix of resources so teachers can tailor, em, personalize (?) the technology to the learning objectives and needs of the students. Next week I'll be working with a school district that is exposing--and TRAINING--teachers on a range of technology options (LearnPad, iPads, Chromebooks, etc.) and letting them choose what to use when. Smart. Really smart.

Mark Fuson's curator insight, January 27, 8:42 AM

It will be interesting to see what Microsoft has to offer to compete with the Chromebook. I wish the author had gone into more detail about exactly what features (or lack thereof) of the Chromebook made it a poor choice in upper-grade levels.

PROBLEM SOLVING USING SCRATCH: ICT in Practice

PROBLEM SOLVING USING SCRATCH: ICT in Practice | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it
I am aware that the computer science aspects of the new computing curriculum creates extra work for some teachers as they need to learn many unfamiliar concepts. I know this can be challenging and time consuming, but I think we are very fortunate because there is a vast range of free programming environments /apps available for teachers to use for teaching computer science elements to children. What we need to remember is that the program itself doesn’t just make children develop computational thinking, the context we use, the pedagogical approach we employ shapes the learning experience of our students.

On the next page I have shared a simple activity which can be used as a main task or as an assessment task at the end of a coding session. The aim is to support children to design solutions for a specific purpose by selecting and using correct blocks in a sequence. These activities can encourage them to think in logical steps which is the main foundation of problem solving skills and at the same time provide opportunities for peer or whole class discussions.

Using ThingLink to Support STEAM | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

STEAM is an approach to teaching that supports arts integration across the curriculum. In a STEAM classroom students construct and demonstrate understanding about core subject areas through an art form. Teachers design learning experiences that encourage students to engage in a creative process that connects an art form to one or more core subject areas, such as Science, Engineering, Technology or Math to meet objectives in all areas.
