Computers have altered children's ability to imagine | BYOD and Learning in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

WiFi, its existence, the control of it and access to it is of deep concern to children. Analysis shows that children see it as almost elemental, as immutable as the weather, literally part of the landscape. It’s represented as omnipresent, over-arching and essential to human connection and collaboration, with many of the artworks conveying a sense of wonder and amazement at the power and potential of WiFi.

Preparing Students for the Computational Future (EdSurge News) | BYOD and Learning in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
“ This is an edited excerpt from “How to Teach Computational Thinking,” first published by Stephen Wolfram on Sept. 7, 2016. Pick any field “X,” from archaeology to zoology. There either is now a “computational X”, or there soon will be. Doctors, lawyers, teachers, farmers, whatever—the future of all these professions will be full of computational thinking. Whether it’s sensor-based medicine, computational contracts, education analytics or agriculture—success is going to rely on being able to do computational thinking well. Computational thinking is going to be a defining feature of the future, and it’s an incredibly important thing to be teaching to kids today. But where does it fit into the standard educational curriculum? The answer, I think, is simple: everywhere!”

Why Content Curation Has Become a Vital Skill for Students | #PKM #PLN #SocialMedia

Why Content Curation Has Become a Vital Skill for Students | #PKM #PLN #SocialMedia | BYOD and Learning in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

People often say things like, “the teacher is no longer the source of information now that students can curate it themselves.” This is typically accompanied by the term “guide on the side” to describe a teacher’s role.

While I see some validity in this sentiment, I think it proves that now more than ever, teachers need to be curators. They need to be geeking out on their subjects. They need to help students figure out where to go. Yes, they might be “on the side,” but they are still guides, helping students navigate the terrain for the first time ever. And that’s precisely what a curator does. We curate so that we can help students learn the art of content curation.

Manuela Mejia's curator insight, September 19, 9:42 PM
In my opinion, this article is very interesting since it gives a complete definition of who is a curator. A curate is a person who goes beyond the information, is someone who searches, selects, organize and manages information and finds the way to explain to other people through a jargon that is understandable for almost everyone. As teachers in development, we need to learn how to grow students in wisdom but also teach them how to connect the information they consume. Nowadays students are faced a technological era in which not all the information is relevant or necessary in the academic field, so as teachers we help students to used appropriated the benefits that technology gives them.

This site takes the classic subjects of the Trivium and the Quadrivium (the 7 Liberal Arts) quite seriously and provides the reader with textbook-style instruction in each of them. If you want to see what education looked like in the second half of the 19th century in the U.S., this will show you.  Don't miss the 1895 8th grade final exam from Salinas, Kansas if you've not seen it before. Personally, I find the section on Rhetoric quite interesting.

16 Ideas for Student Projects using Google Docs, Slides, and Forms

16 Ideas for Student Projects using Google Docs, Slides, and Forms | BYOD and Learning in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
“ As you probably know, Google Drive is far more than a place to store files online. It also includes a suite of versatile creation tools, many of which perform the same functions as the ones we use in other spaces. These include Google Docs, a word processing program that behaves similarly to Microsoft Word, Google Slides, a presentation program similar to PowerPoint, and Google Forms, a survey-creation tool similar to Survey Monkey. Although Drive also includes other tools, these three are particularly useful for creating rigorous, academically robust projects. If your school uses Google Classroom or at least gives students access to Google Drive, your students are probably already using these tools to write papers or create slideshow presentations, but there are other projects they could be doing that you may not have thought of. Below I have listed 16 great ideas for projects using Google Docs, Slides, and Forms.

[PDF] The paradox of classroom technology

[PDF] The paradox of classroom technology | BYOD and Learning in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
Learners’ use of digital tools and other technology to support their learning in our K-12 systems continues to be sporadic and often not observed despite the proliferation of use outside of school. Based on an analysis of three years of direct classroom observations in K-12 schools across 39 states and 11 countries, AdvancED found there are still relatively few classrooms in which the use of digital tools and technology is a regular part of a student’s school experience. In more than half (52.7 percent) of classrooms direct observations show no evidence students are using technology to gather, evaluate, or use information for learning; two-thirds of classrooms show no evidence of students using technology to solve problems, conduct research, or to work collaboratively.
Trained and certified observers conduct classroom observations as a part of AdvancED’s continuous improvement process which could include STEM Certification, accreditation, readiness and/or diagnostic review. Each observation lasts a minimum of 20 minutes during which observers use the learner-centric eProve™ Effective Learning Environments Observation Tool® (eleot®) to gather data focused on the activities learners are engaged in, their discussions and interactions, resources they are using for learning, their behaviors and dispositions during the learning process, etc. Observers rate each of the 30 eleot items on a four-point scale where 4 = Very Evident, 3 = Evident, 2 = Somewhat Evident and 1 = Not Observed

Our research shows that when students work on projects, they learn more | #PBL #Collaboration | BYOD and Learning in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
“Educators often talk about 21st-century skills and the benefits of incorporating communication, creativity, collaboration, problem-solving, and critical thinking into lessons. These are skills students rarely learn straight out of a textbook. The best way to teach them, we’ve found, is by making these skills a relevant part of their active lives.If that sounds daunting, rest assured, it doesn’t always have to be. One way we have taught these skills is through project-based learning (PBL), where students apply what they’ve learned during a hands-on project that is relevant to the real world — and their lives.To that end, a new report developed by MIDA Learning Technologies, which we researchers worked on, shows that students engaged in PBL understand concepts more deeply than those receiving traditional instruction, resulting in improved problem solving skills. Past research reviewed in the report also suggests that PBL students perform better on a wide range of assessments including standardized testing. The full report includes quantitative and qualitative evaluations of students’ problem-solving abilities after implementation of a pre-built, project-based STEM curriculum in science class.”

Do We Need to Teach Students to Use Technology? | Tech Learning

Do We Need to Teach Students to Use Technology? | Tech Learning | BYOD and Learning in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
“ Four years ago, when Chromebooks were new and my students were logging on for the first time, I dedicated days of class time to exploration, practice, and play. We learned how to navigate the apps launcher, customize settings, and turn in work, developing technical skills that would later be leveraged to enhance learning. Most of it was isolated from class content, focusing instead on building comfort and relationships. And for years, that strategy worked well. But in the last few years, I’ve reconsidered this idea, asking myself: do we still need to teach students to use technology? Back then, the question was more about whether or not we really needed technology. Now, it’s shifted to a focus on how and when to implement it meaningfully and effectively. In my dual roles as a teacher and coach, these are questions that are asked a lot, especially at the start of the year. And this year, my approach is really changing--I will no longer directly teach technology. Instead, I want to develop meaningful applications (and review) of the tools to jump right into relationship building, inquiry, exploration, and learning. The technology should never stand on its own, but should be embedded in content and skills.”

Manuela Mejia's curator insight, September 21, 11:11 PM
Some people think that social networks are not suitable for academic purposes; however, what this article suggests is that teachers can encourage students to use Twitter as a learning platform in which learners and teachers share information about topics related with the academic field. As a teacher in development, I think that we can use almost all the tools that technology gave us, but it is very important that first we teach students how to use them. It is also important that teachers use personal and professional account since you do not want that students know things about your personal life, or maybe you do not want that you family and friends follow things related with their job. 

I consider that teachers can create an special section in which students talk about the Tweets that are interesting for them, or maybe make an activity like a reading circle, a debate or a speech in which the students get extra points because it helps that students focus on reading the suggested material and not only looking for the profile accounts of their friends.

This can result in the transfer of competencies across disciplines—important for students preparing for real-life situations where clear-cut divisions of disciplines fall away and one must select competencies from the entire gamut of their experience to effectively apply them to the challenges at hand. Even within academic settings, it is valuable—and often necessary—to apply principles and methods across disciplinary lines.”
