Even though there are more than enough fun and festive holiday activities available on the web, this gem is definitely worth the encore—especially if you’ve somehow missed it along the way.

Playing Outside iPad's Screen with Osmo - Learning in Hand with Tony Vincent

Playing Outside iPad's Screen with Osmo - Learning in Hand with Tony Vincent | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it
Osmo was created by young parents and encourages social interaction by expanding interaction with games to the area in front of an iPad. It does this by providing a white stand and a red mirror that works with iPad and iPad mini. The reflector lets the front-facing camera recognize what is placed in front of iPad. Something to know is that iPad must be removed from any case in order to fit into the stand.

The Know Your File Types Infographic

The Know Your File Types Infographic | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

jpg… gif… png… Ever wonder when you should use which file type for what purpose? If so, take the guess work out of this dilemma by checking out the super cool Know Your File Types infographic shown below. Not only does it describe each one of these image formats, but the visual provides information related to which type works best in different sets of circumstances. Some really good stuff!

Jamie Forshey's insight:

Teaching students which file extensions to utilize so that they can avoid overloading an inbox, maxing out storage space and/or causing web pages, blogs and wikis to load slowly is invaluable—especially if you’re teaching computers or multimedia courses. That said, print the cluster of infographics explaining file formats and then post it in your classroom as a handy reference.

5 Reasons to Allow Digital Devices in Your Classroom

5 Reasons to Allow Digital Devices in Your Classroom | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Surely, learning can take place in the absence of technology. But valuable learning can also take place in the presence of it. In my own experience as a foreign language instructor, I have found that there are many benefits to allowing—and in certain cases encouraging—students to use digital devices in class, five of which are outlined below.

To allow or not to allow? 

Edgar Mata's curator insight, December 8, 10:42 PM

In principle, I agree with a lot of what Shirky writes—multiple studies confirm the cognitive toll that distractions and multitasking inflict on learning; his argument that social media is designed both in form and content to distract has merit; and as an email-addict myself, I know that feeling of “instant and satisfying gratification” he describes all too well. Suggesting, however, that enforcing a technology ban is the solution to students’ lack of engagement strikes me both as insecure and a wee bit simplistic.

How to Make Students Better Online Researchers

How to Make Students Better Online Researchers | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

I recently came across an article in Wired Magazine called “Why Kids Can’t Search“.  I’m always interested in this particular topic, because it’s something I struggle with in my middle and high school classes constantly, and I know I’m not alone in my frustrations.

 

Getting kids to really focus on what exactly they are searching for, and then be able to further distill idea into a few key specific search terms is a skill that we must teach students, and we have to do it over and over again. We never question the vital importance of teaching literacy, but we have to be mindful that there are many kinds of “literacies”. An ever more important one that ALL teachers need to be aware of is digital literacy. I could go off in many directions on this, but for the purpose of this post I’m focusing strictly on the digital literacy of searching.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, December 9, 12:47 PM

Research, search, and inquiry are different processes. They are each important and overlap, but are still distinct. Research moves knowledge along. Searching is looking for information. Inquiry is posing questions.

Even if you think the buzz around "learning how to code" is overkill, you have to admit it's here to stay.

Just like it's easier to learn a foreign language if you start in grade school, getting an early grasp on mark-up and programming languages such as HTML, CSS and Java ensures you'll have an idea of what makes our digital lives and devices tick, even if you don't plan on becoming a software developer.

"A higher-order thinker is a critical thinker. What are the attributes of a critical thinker? In The Miniature Guide to Critical Thinking Concepts and Tools, Richard Paul and Linda Elder describe a well-cultivated critical thinker as someone who:


raises vital questions and problems, formulating them clearly and precisely;gathers and assesses relevant information, using abstract ideas to interpret it effectively; comes to well-reasoned conclusions and solutions, testing them against relevant criteria and standards;thinks open-mindedly within alternative systems of thought, recognizing and assessing their assumptions, implications and practical consequences as need be; andcommunicates effectively with others in figuring out solutions to complex problems."

5 Free iPad Apps for Sketching Notes - iPad Apps for School | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it
Sketching notes or sketchnoting appears to be becoming a popular way of taking notes and organizing ideas. I’ve done that on paper for years and you may have too. Sketchnoting allows me to create outlines in any format that I like, quickly connect ideas through arrows and lines, and illustrate ideas when words aren’t enough. Sketchnoting on an iPad enables students to edit and share sketchnotes more quickly and easily than ever before. Here is a handful of iPad apps (some freemium, some completely free) for sketchnoting.
