Free Technology for Teachers: Remind 101 - Safely Text Parents and Students

Free Technology for Teachers: Remind 101 - Safely Text Parents and Students | Art Education | Scoop.it

"Remind 101 is a free service that allows you to send text messages to groups of students and or parents from your computer, your iPhone, or your Android phone. The benefit of using Remind 101 over Google Voice, which I used to use for this purpose, to text students and parents is that your phone number is not revealed and your students' cell phone numbers are not revealed to you. Students and parents have to opt-in if they want to be added to your text messaging list. Students and parents have to enter a confirmation code to state that they do want to be contacted by you through the service."

"What originally started out as a novelty item has now become a ubiquitous force to be reckoned with. The Apple iPad, in its multiple models, has become a major player in classroom computing.

 

Yet just as soon as the iPad revolution started, many followed its lead – resulting in companies designing their own range of tablets to be used in a variety of settings, from workplaces to hospitals and even airports. So what types of these competing tablets are being used in the education?"

An interesting article that explores one of the great misconceptions about teaching: is it art or science? And helps illustrate that there is a science behind the practice of teaching, but professors need the ability to adapt them in unique and creative ways to the classroom.

Designing with Empathy

Every decision we make affects the way real people experience our products. We’ve all heard the rallying cry for user-centered design, but even those of us who ascribe to that ideal often fall back on our own biases and instincts when it comes to making decisions about how people experience our content and our services. Sadly, this often means we make decisions we think will be good for our "users"—that anonymous, faceless crowd—rather than actually trying to understand the perspectives, surroundings, capabilities, and disadvantages of the actual people who we are here to serve. 

In this session, Aaron Gustafson will explore why empathy is a good thing, how empathy empowers creativity, and how we, as a community, can inject more empathy into our work.

How To Gamify Your Classroom In 6 Easy Steps - Edudemic  Design Infographic | Art Education | Scoop.it
Trying to gamify your classroom may seem like a useful tactic. But for teachers who are new to gamification, incorporating it into your classroom may seem like a daunting task.

 

Gamification can be a great tool to incorporate into your classroom. Helping with student engagement and motivation, gamification is a growing trend. But for teachers who are new to gamification, incorporating it into your classroom may seem like a daunting task. Figuring out ahead of time how to introduce gamification concepts into your lessons and having specific goals in mind will make the experience a much richer one for you and your students than just gamifying concepts for the sake of it.

Art And Copyright In The Age Of Compulsive Looking | Techdirt

Art And Copyright In The Age Of Compulsive Looking | Techdirt | Art Education | Scoop.it

 

We wrote recently about how the rise of mobile phones with built-in cameras has led to an irresistible urge to record our experiences everywhere with a digital picture. But what happens when those experiences include works of art, which may still be under copyright? That's the interesting question an article in Art News explores:

 

We're in an age when people take pictures just about everywhere, an act that photography critic Jörg M. Colberg describes as "compulsive looking." The phenomenon has created a unique set of challenges for art museums, many of which have historically had strict limitations on photography -- either for the purpose of protecting light-sensitive works or because of copyright issues.

 

The good news is that some art museums are beginning to revisit their old rules, not least because they themselves are starting to share images through social media:

 

"This past January, the Pew Research Center's Internet & American Life Project reported that 97 percent of the more than 1,200 arts organizations it polled had a presence on platforms like Twitter, YouTube, and Flickr."

 

This makes it difficult for visitors to understand why they can't do the same, and to use photos as starting points for their own creativity:
