How to get school principals on board with #edtech - Daily Genius | college and career ready | Scoop.it
Getting the higher-ups in your organization interested – let alone supporting – a new initiative is not easy. There are meetings, e-mails, coffees, and many other times you’ll need to essentially lobby to get a new initiative launched. Since education technology is a time-consuming and expensive proposition, expect to meet plenty of push-back. While most …

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 17, 5:35 AM

Have you seen an RSA Animate video? Are you interested in learning how to make one or better yet, have your students make one? This post provides an in-depth look at how to go about have your students create an animated video that provides them with the opportunity to  practice 21st century skills (quoted from post below):

* collaborate with one another

* synthesize ideas

* create content

* communicate ideas clearly

* use technology

This activity is designed to have your students create content, providing you with materials to use in future classes as well as helping your current students understand the materiial.

The author, Jordan Collier, provides a detailed five-day plan. Day 1 would have you dividing students into groups of three, assign them a section of a chapter in a textbook, and determine the key facts that need to be taught. To read about how to assist them with this and the tasks for Day 2 - 5 click through to the post.

Very interesting infographic. I'm optimistic about the "trending up" issues but dissappointed in the "trending down" issues, especially to see academics, transparency, and infographics going down. However, if elearning is trending down and blending learning is trending up, I think this is a positive overall trend for holistic, life-long learning. Thanks for the post!

Learning Through Digital Media » How I Used Wikis to Get My Students to Do Their Readings

Learning Through Digital Media » How I Used Wikis to Get My Students to Do Their Readings | college and career ready | Scoop.it

KEN'S KEY TAKEAWAY

This author does a great job of explaining how he uses Wikis to help students organize their thoughts before and after class meetings.  I have used wikis in the past, but I prefer blogs.  My ideal situation would be if a leader took the best of the blogs and created a wiki.  Maybe next semster?

Ken

 

"We have heard the complaint or issued it ourselves one too many times: “They don’t read!”

 

But can Digital Media provide some simple pedagogical models to promote a more active engagement with that most ancient and passive form of learning: the reading assignment? In this article, I describe the use of Wikis (web pages that people can easily edit as a group) to get students to summarize, ask questions, and comment on a reading before they even meet for class. And while many new—and old—tools can be used to accomplish similar results, what is innovative about this approach is that whereas before reading and writing was something students were supposed to do individually in the isolation of their rooms or the library, now—thanks to Wikis—it is a project they tackle collaboratively as a class. The goals of this critical pedagogy are thus both modest and radical, at the intersection of old and new technologies: to use Digital Media to change the way students interact with texts."

 

Assignment provided and reflection on it's impact on student learning. A really worthwhile read!

This has been on my mind a lot lately. It frustrates me that so many teachers are ready to gather around Wikipedia like a pinata and beat it down. It is still sooooooo young. It can become something really special if we nurture it and encourage wise use. For example, the most powerful part is not the front page but by going under the hood and looking at the discussions about what should be on the front page. Helping our students find those discussions is so important. Ken

College Completion: Programs That Are Working, Tech That is Helping ~ edcetera | college and career ready | Scoop.it

by Courtney Bell

 

"College completion is one of the primary measures schools use to assess the effectiveness of their institutions. According to the NCHEMS Information Center, in 2009 the average six-year graduation rate of bachelor’s degree students in the United States was 55.5%, so we definitely have room for improvement.

 

"There are a number of factors that can impact college success and completion, from social integration to getting hung up in developmental classes. Here we explore some of the programs that have been put in place to encourage students to succeed in school and achieve their degrees."

Educational Leadership:Technology-Rich Learning:Students First, Not Stuff | college and career ready | Scoop.it
Most of us went into teaching understanding that school was pretty much the only education game in town, the place where kids came to get information, where, at the end of the day, we were responsible for disseminating the knowledge, we assessed whether our students got it, and we stamped it "an education." For that vast majority of kids (and for us, too) who attended a brick-and-mortar school, that's been the unbending, monolithic vision of schooling for 150 years.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, March 9, 2013 3:58 PM

Will Richardson's article is insightful and tick many boxes for teachers. I started teaching 13 years ago and have been astounded at the pace of change in the technological side of education. Maintaining an understanding of technology and the tools related with it is a constant learning experience, and that's just keeping up with the learners in my classroom. To get ahead of them is the challenge. There are so many ways of learning now, the traditional book, library, expert and the technological, social media, video conference, e-books and more. How do we show our students how to use these new learning tools in an efficient and safe way? 

 

Policy makers must keep up with these changes. Technology policies should be reviewed at least annually to ensure they have not fallen behind the multimodal learning race. We need to ensure that we put learners first. When they leave our schools they MUST be able to use technology to be effective in the workforce. Teachers MUST help them learn what they need therefore we MUST learn about new technologies.
