TECHCHEF: App Integration Snapshots

TECHCHEF: App Integration Snapshots | 21st Century Education Solutions | Scoop.it

"Marianna Husain (@mhusain), fellow iVenger and author of the Bobcat blog, had the idea to create easy to follow handouts for teachers on a weekly basis to support them with the multitude of apps available on the elementary devices (see full list of 150+ apps here http://bit.ly/19WC0j1 ;). As there are 5 elementaries and 9-10 ed techs creating these resources on a rotating basis, I suggested a template to streamline the process and make them appear more uniform."


Via John Evans
Jonathan Climas's insight:

Teachers need more of this or there will continue to be a fear of using technology in the classroom. A really useful resource which will hopefully continue to be produced.

"Word cloud tools are great for bringing into focus the main elements in a learning activity. You can use them to deconstruct a text or to pull out the main characters in a story or a book. Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has already featured a detailed guide http://bit.ly/15y3gDr on  how teachers can use these tools in education and here are some of the ideas mentioned there:"

Our Future Depends On Putting Tech Education At The Core

Our Future Depends On Putting Tech Education At The Core | 21st Century Education Solutions | Scoop.it
If we don't make technology education a priority, we will face a crisis of epic proportions. It is estimated that by 2020 there will be 4.2 million jobs in IT and computing.

Via John Evans
Jonathan Climas's insight:

All true, but it's not enough to just teach kids how to use technology - the tech of today will be irrelevant by the time they graduate. We need to teach them how to create the next generation of technology or develop their own.

Karina Gonzalez's curator insight, November 6, 2013 5:32 PM

Technology is very important for now and the future because that's what the future is all about. Hands on experience for technology must start as soon as possible because as the years go by the technology will advance and technology waits for no one.

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, October 4, 2013 6:15 PM

What a furphy - there is no need to lock down student devices - the problem only exists in the eyes of the administrators.  OPen access provides rich authentic learning opportunities - if the students are provided with meaningful, relevantr and engaging learnign experiences the issues of inapporpriate use become a tangential concern relating to a handful of students who can then be offered a chance to learn about why their actions did not serve them well.  Education is alwaysa bout learnign and should never be about policing and punishing.

 

The simple use of the verb "to force" highlights that this is about brutal application of power relations not education.
