7 Wonderful iPad Apps to Learn about Human Body in 3D ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

7 Wonderful iPad Apps to Learn about Human Body in 3D ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | AC Library News | Scoop.it

"Technology has radically revolutionized the human science and provided us with profound insights that were not knowable to us before. It has also cracked the dark secrets of some key scientific concepts that mystified the human mind since the dawn of time. The physiology of the body and body anatomy are some of these key areas that have benefited a great deal from the advancement of technology. Consequently, the teaching of these concepts have become way easier and more attainable. In this regard, developers now have designed so many apps that examine the human body in 3D."

Floyd Pentlin's curator insight, October 4, 2013 3:47 PM

A key to making sure good practices stick is to teach research skills when kids need them. “If it’s not embedded with instruction it will have no relevance to the learner,” said Michelle Luhtala, Library Department Chair at New Canaan High School in Connecticut during an edWeb webinar (who also leads Banned Website Awareness Day). She doesn’t swoop into a sophomore history class and guest lecture on how to research on the web. “If it’s taught separately, in isolation from the content, I don’t think the kids are going to take the learning seriously,” Luhtala said.

At an Apple event last Thursday, the Spring Lake Park (MN) school superintendent stated that part of the success of his district's 1:1 initiative was replacing the school librarians with technology integration specialists. I didn't see too many eyebrows go up or hear any audible gasps when he said it. But anymore, I don't really expect such reactions.

I want to flip but not sure how to start. How do I go about recording and demonstrating library research? Has anyone already had a go at this, I would love to see some examples.

Cindy Rogers's curator insight, November 6, 2013 11:52 PM

I watched my husband very successfully flip his classroom as an instructor.  As for me?  Suggestions for librarians were just what I needed.

Elizabeth Hutchinson's comment, November 15, 2013 2:38 AM
Maybe it is about time we librarians workout how to do this. If anyone wants to talk about how let me know. Not that I have any idea but talking about it may help point us in the right direction.

All That Teachers Need to Know about Flipped Classroom- Tutorials, Tools and Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

All That Teachers Need to Know about Flipped Classroom- Tutorials, Tools and Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | AC Library News | Scoop.it

"Several teachers now have already stated using the flipped classroom model in their teaching and some are still thinking about how to do it. If you are one of those who are keen on applying this learning/teaching strategy with your students then this resourceful section will provide you with all the materials, tips, ideas, and tools to flip your classroom.

 

A flipped classroom is a model in which the ordinary teaching activities which are done in class  like lecturing or demonstrations are recorded in videos and podcasts for students to access at home. The in-class time is used instead for deeper class discussions, students projects, one-one-one interventions, peer collaboration, and many more."

How can one person “teach” 1,000 students?  They can’t.  At least not regularly.  Instead they must focus on developing teachers’ capacity (as a coach, modeling lessons and acting as a consultant) and learning resources (from pathfinders via Libguides to videos, podcasts, slide presentations), not to mention running a facility that is a learning space by default (the environment as the 3rd teacher), hosting events and initiatives.

Motivated by a shared inquiry question, a team of librarians at Deerfield High School (Illinois) gathered data to support a push to integrate information literacy skills into the curriculum, and developed a fruitful collaboration with other departments resulting in a co-taught Medieval narrative project. Among other important outcomes: a change in student perceptions about the role of school librarians.

Teacher Agency: Educators Moving from a Fixed to a Growth Mindset - User Generated Education

Teacher Agency:  Educators Moving from a Fixed to a Growth Mindset - User Generated Education | AC Library News | Scoop.it

"It is a myth that we operate under a set of oppressive  bureaucratic constraints. In reality, teachers have a great deal of autonomy in the work they chose to do in their classrooms. In most cases it is our culture that provides the constraints. For individual teachers, trying out new practices and pedagogy is risky business and both our culture, and our reliance on hierarchy, provide the ideal barriers for change not to occur. As Pogo pointed out long ago, “we have met the enemy and it is us.” http://www.cea-ace.ca/blog/brian-harrison/2013/09/5/stop-asking-permission-change"

LeadLearner: Minimizing your Moron Factor

LeadLearner: Minimizing your Moron Factor | AC Library News | Scoop.it

"Leaders can be morons. Now this is not always the case, but it happens from time to time. Sometimes, when I'm sitting in a meeting, I get really involved in the discussion, and suddenly, something begins to change.  I sense this awkward and uncomfortable feeling and notice that my moron factor is starting to increase.

 

What just happened?  I heard that there was a problem, so I started talking about what we needed to do to resolve the issue. Within about three seconds, the facial expressions of the people in the room signaled that my moron factor was increasing.  The conversation segued from deep discussion into deafening silence as the focused engagement disintegrated before my very eyes, and that's when I realized. John, you're such a moron."

10 Mind Mapping Strategies For Teachers - TeachThought

10 Mind Mapping Strategies For Teachers - TeachThought | AC Library News | Scoop.it

"The adoption of Mind Maps in teaching has grown recently due to the benefits of using Mind Maps to learn and the availability of free online mind mapping software.

 

Teachers have recognized the value of using Mind Maps to engage students, encourage creativity and, most importantly, teaching how to learn rather simply memorizing content. Mind Maps have even been integrated into emerging teaching techniques such as the Flipped Classroom and Design Thinking as outlined in the Mind Map on the right.

 

How do teachers harness the full power of Mind Mapping? Below is some ideas on how teachers and student can use Mind Maps both in and out of the classroom."

5 Amazing Ways to Collaborate with Another Class - EdTechDiva | AC Library News | Scoop.it

"“Ms. Clark, when are we going to do that again?” Nothing makes me happier as an educator than hearing those words – and lately I have been hearing them a lot! It is not the question as much as the look on the faces of my students that I enjoy the most. It’s the inspiring glow of engagement and enthusiasm and the fire in their eyes that makes me want to keep trying new projects. Their relentless desire to do collaborative-based work is proof that they enjoy the journey, the connections and the role of play in their learning. One of the thrills about being an educator in 2013 is this ability to redefine the typical classroom landscape in this way. This year we did it campus wide with some pretty amazing projects that helped everyone see the value in collaborating, and the immense power of thinking outside the box – in this case, I literally mean the constrictive box of the traditional classroo"
