As a teacher I try to expose children to technology. Some of them pick it up quickly, some of them are cautious. And yes we are preparing them for jobs that don't yet exist!
Pearletta Wilson's curator insight, April 29, 2013 9:48 AM

Students this past year have found using mobile devices and writing quite a challenge. This is a thought-provoking article that will help me to approach the use of mobile devices in education from a more positive angle

EdTech "vs." IT

EdTech "vs." IT | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

Unfortunately, the "EdTech vs. IT" mindset is all too prevalent in many organizations.  Operational IT looks down disdainfully on their users from an ivory tower, viewing them as "threats" to be carefully controlled and monitored. 

 

Teachers view the IT department as a bunch of out of touch control freaks who hinder rather than facilitate their work. As a former teacher, I have seen it from both sides.

This sad situation is wrong on many levels. 

 

===> The relationship between IT and users should be a partnership, not a boxing match! <===

John Dalziel's curator insight, April 27, 2013 5:59 PM

Generate Free Custom Printable Bingo Cards
Bingo cards are the main element of a type of lottery game, where each player has a card with 5 rows and 5 columns containing 25 unique numbers in each square. The position of numbers on a card is unique for every player. Once a number is called, each player marks it on their card. Once all the numbers have been called, the player who completes the entire line (horizontally, vertically or diagonally) calls “Bingo!” and wins the game.
The BingoCardApp helps practitioners create the cards. It is an online bingo card generator that lets you make free printable bingo cards quickly and easily.
To create a set of bingo cards...
- go to their website,
- give the bingo cards a name,
- type numbers or words (at least 24) into the box, one per line and then
- click “Generate Bingo Cards".
NOTE: The service is free and lets users generate up 8 bingo cards per list. To generate more bingo cards users will have to sign up for a paid membership.

Getting Kids Engaged with Primary Sources | Cool Tools

Getting Kids Engaged with Primary Sources | Cool Tools | 21st Century Technology Integration | Scoop.it

The U.S. National Archives Experience Digital Vaults (pictured above) offers students a good introduction to discovering and working with primary source materials. Rather than turning kids loose on millions of records in the National Archives, Digital Vaults focuses on a curated collection of 1,200 items.

 

Within the site, there are activities designed to help students discover important connections between primary sources. One section, Pathways Challenges, provides quizzes that ask kids to analyze a specific resource and then find the related document within the collection. Teachers and students can create their own quizzes or take advantage of the premade challenges.

 

Students who create free Digital Vaults accounts can collect primary source documents and images and use them to create digital posters and videos within the available templates.

This is a great example of how to use the Infographic format to educate and share knowledge with others.  It make sense that a teacher would do it.  Fantastic!

Audrey's curator insight, March 8, 2014 5:38 PM

Once you start using these two learning strategies teaching becomes a real pleasure as students will be teaching the topics.  In addition they will be able to give evaluative and analytical commentary.

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency...

Hi Amadeu. No problem. It's always a good idea to check every source before signing up. I work very quickly and often forget so it's good to remind me. I usualy stay away from services which require me to sign in through another service, but this looks really good so I made an exception.
