Bloom’s Revised Digital Taxonomy Wheel & the Knowledge Dimension | Eductechalogy

Bloom’s Revised Digital Taxonomy Wheel & the Knowledge Dimension | Eductechalogy | Canes STEM Resources | Scoop.it

I have produced an interactive Bloom’s revised digital taxonomy wheel and the almost overlapping knowledge Dimensions. Bloom’s taxonomy has been used extensively in the education sector. The 2001 update of Bloom’s taxonomy for the 21century  is depicted in this interactive wheel. Almost overlapping, are the four knowledge domains.

I am interested and would like to be able to study the wheel, but the background colors are so light they are difficult to read.

How Educators are Creating Learner-Centered Learning @ CESA #1

How Educators are Creating Learner-Centered Learning @ CESA #1 | Canes STEM Resources | Scoop.it

"Recently released by the Alliance for Excellent Education: Culture Shift: Teaching in a Learner-Centered Environment Powered By Digital Learning, a report that advocates a culture shift to a learner-centered classroom environment to prepare students to meet the challenges and demands of a global economy."

 

In this report talks of what educators are in need of in a learner-centered environment for their own professional learning. Professional learning opportunities for educators vary widely in quantity, type, and quality. Professional development ideally should be “a process of continuous improvement for teachers and principals that transforms practice and increases student achievement.”

 

If learner-centered learning can be realized then learner-centered professional development needs to take place.The Institute @ CESA #1 points out that they are actually implementing learner-centered professional development for educators NOW!

What Teachers Need to Know about BYOD ( Bring Your Own Device ) Trend in Education

What Teachers Need to Know about BYOD ( Bring Your Own Device ) Trend in Education | Canes STEM Resources | Scoop.it

BYOD is the catch phrase in the 2012 educational technology spheres. This acronym stands for " Bring Your Own Device ", I am pretty sure you might have heard of this new trend because wherever you turn you hear people talking about embracing it. I actually have been reading a lot about it to the point that I deem it important that I share with you some of what I understood from BYOD .

Watch Know Learn - free educational videos

Watch Know Learn - free educational videos | Canes STEM Resources | Scoop.it

http://watchknowlearn.org/ ; This  is a website which has made great progress over the last several years at collating and organizing videos from a range of sources.  Aimed at K12 level  this website has some videos suitable for undergraduate tertiary level. Clear organisation into topics and categories, easy navigation and the star rating system is useful. Only improvement I would suggest is that all the 'blurbs' show a run time so you don't have to make guesses about how long the video clips are.

Digital Roadtrip: Unique Method for Accessing Student Work on iPads-YES!

Digital Roadtrip: Unique Method for Accessing Student Work on iPads-YES! | Canes STEM Resources | Scoop.it

Accessing student work is one of the drawbacks that often leave teachers just wondering how useful the iPad can be in the classroom. Digital Roadtrip has an answer!

Would you believe the same thing works without a cable and it doesn’t have to be the Mac/PC that manages the devices. It means that any teacher can access all the students files on a device that has been “Saved to iTunes”. You can even pick up the work, mark it and hand it back to the iPad whilst the iPad is still being used by the kids (unbeknown to the user!)..

Free Technology for Teachers: 21st Century Engagement with Skype in the Classroom

Free Technology for Teachers: 21st Century Engagement with Skype in the Classroom | Canes STEM Resources | Scoop.it

It’s always amazing to me how educators, can grab hold of something that wasn’t developed with us in mind, and make it our own. We have a knack for doing that, and we’ve done it with Skype. With Skype, educators are knocking down classroom walls,allowing our students the chance to hear from experts, and creating global learners.

How to Build an E-Learning Template with No Money Down » The Rapid eLearning Blog | Canes STEM Resources | Scoop.it

A common frustration for many rapid elearning developers is wanting to build elearning courses that look good but not having the graphic design expertise or resources to make it happen.

Today, we’ll look at a simple way to solve that problem. I call it the “quick template” technique. It’s a trick I share in many of my workshops.
