Loved The Hour Of Code? 3 Great Ideas For What To Do Next - Getting Smart | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
"Yes, National Computer Science Week is over and more than 10 million students participated in the Hour of Code and the feedback from all over the country is pretty incredible. Chicago Public Schools announced they are adding Computer Science into the core curriculum for all students. Schools and districts that have been promoting coding for years, like Los Altos School District, are getting great press about what they accomplish with students. New apps, programs and teacher training resources are popping up all over. 2014 definitely feels like it is going to be the year of the student coder!"

In Digital Age, Schools That Succeed are Schools That Connect

In Digital Age, Schools That Succeed are Schools That Connect | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
A few months ago, I posted an article by Shelly Blake-Plock called 21 Things in Education That Will be Obsolete in 2020, which lists some of th For most children, the key to success will continue to be sharp critical skills, strong connections, effective communication and the nerve to be creative and entrepreneurial. The difference is that we are living at a time in which all of those skills are defined by one’s proficiency in connected media. Furthermore, for students facing poverty, violence and disability, online learning networks can provide empowering educational experiences that transcend the circumstances of the classroom. Ultimately, the school that ignores the connection will be the school that we will identify as a failing institution. It is therefore even crueler that policymakers obsessed with standardized test results — like Ms. Rhee and her many disciples — ignore what the connection represents.

Mariya Aiza's curator insight, January 24, 11:17 AM

This article thought me that since our generation is in the digital age, those schools that provide computers or internet are schools that are more successful than school that does not.Why? Kids nowadays are so caught up in their electronic gadgets like phones,tablets and others that they rarely read books anymore. Plus, kids that had a bad upbringing can learn better in online learning because they can find anything on the internet that can help them to improve their knowledge.I think this is good but it also might have a negative effect on them like their eyesight might go bad or they might use the media for a different and bad purposes.That is what i think.

21 Incredible Maker Ed Kits For Learning - TeachThought

21 Incredible Maker Ed Kits For Learning - TeachThought | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
"Being a relatively new concept, the definition of Maker Ed isn’t exactly set in stone, though it roughly relates learning making making. What your definition of “making” is will likely help you form your definition of maker ed and learning through making, whether that be clay for sculpting, wood and saws for building, or apps for digital wares. The 21 kits below are a part of this movement, but they’re also incredibly cool. They have less to do with making from scratch and more to do with making from pre-made materials (kits), but that doesn’t make them any less useful for learning through play and creation. Oh, and we’ve got 2 or 3 books in there as well."

SAMR: Augmenting your Creativity and Amplifying your Curiosity - TechChef | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
"While there has been a bit of question as to the effectiveness of SAMR, a shift to move beyond SAMR, and a few proposed changes to the structure of the model floating around online, I have to say that hearing Dr. Ruben Puentedura (you may know him as the father of SAMR) speak at iPad Summit a few weeks ago still felt like a rare app-ortunity and a truly inspiring treat. As I am still collecting my thoughts and ideas from the event, I wanted to share some really great resources from the Dr. SAMR. "

"Are you looking for some inspiration and new ideas on how to integrate iPad in your PBL based classroom? The graphic below from our colleagues in Teachthought is a wonderful start. Project based learning, as we have constantly argued in our previous posts, is a powerful pedagogical approach to learning and teaching. The core tenets underpinning the philosophy of PBL are grounded in socially collaborative and constructionist theories of learning. PBL enhances students learning through engaging them in real-life and authentic learning tasks and when coupled with digital media and technology, PBL can be more empowering to students."
