Mobile Friendly Classrooms - TECHCHEF

Mobile Friendly Classrooms - TECHCHEF | Common Core Standards | Scoop.it

`As I somewhat overtly stated in the last post, I now reside as an Ed Tech at Westlake HS. While I am still acclimating to the size of the campus and getting to know the staff and students, I did have a chance to drop in on a few classrooms piloting a mobile-friendly seating solution. Interested in gleaning initial findings from both the teachers and the students, I gathered a bit of anecdotal and pictorial data. The complete article can be found on the Eanes WHS WIFI blog but I will share a few of the highlights here.``

Each time I look at one of these good ideas, I begin to think about "how do we use the technology and train teachers how to make the same accommodations we expected them to make with the traditional materials?"  Has using technology kept up with the linguistic adaptations some of our ELLs need or is that "translate everything" mentality still out there. Are there enough "tricks" built into the programs and apps?  I am just thinking out loud since I am not a tech geek.

Ashley Vickery's curator insight, August 12, 2013 3:05 PM

This is a great take on CCSS and Instruction in the ELA classroom. At first glance the CCSS can seem incredibly overwhelming to a first time teacher. How can I possibly teach everything I want my students to gain while also adhereing to ALL of these standards? It's difficult, frustrating, and frightening. In this article, Schmoker and Jago say it's OK to miss some of the standards.

 

What is MOST important is that students are spending enough time on material (but not too much time) that they are able to make important connections. We need to ask our students carefully planned and executed questions that make them think. Students should be involved in rich debate, intensive writing exercises and explore other forms of texts (poems, non-fiction, speeches) that allow them to think about a novel on multiple layers.

 

Last semester, I student taught in a private school so conversations of CCSS disappeared from faculty meetings. Though the curriculum I participated in was extremely engaging and interactive, I had to think long and hard about how each lesson may apply or translate to a CCSS curriculum.

 

The beauty of NOT having the standards was that teachers are allowed to be a bit more creative. Students are not as confined to material and the stress of a common core "to do" list is eliminated. What Schmoker and Jago have explored is the perfect balance of these worlds. As teachers we can do it all, we just have to assess what is most important and engages our students the most.

Mr Ortloff's curator insight, October 8, 2013 12:26 PM

In the Winnie the Pooh Movie Pooh's Grand Adventure, the character Rabbit has absolute confidence in the printed word and especially the map.

 

Questions to ponder:  How much do we trust any given map?  How much should we trust a map (or the printed word)?  What makes a document reliable or unreliable? 

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, November 28, 2013 1:04 AM

The user is putting total trust in the map to get from A to B. How can we trust the map? What are the features of good infromation? A useful discussion-starter.

I think this video is a perfect example of todays modern soceity. Many people in this would today are exactly like rabbit, they believe everything they see without questioning its integrity. this has cause alot of problems in todays internet fueled world with anyone being able to post whatever they want and call it fact. This is where we need more people like Pooh who question everything. Pooh sees where he wants to go with his own eyes and can tell that rabbit is leading him the wrong way. This is relateable to so much in geography but to keep it simple ill compare it to Pythagoras proclaimed the earth was spherical. He question something everyone in the world took as a fact and nobody believed him because it was already stated that the world was flat. Just like pooh questioning the "offical map"

This library of resources has been created and compiled in order to help English Language Arts educators in North Carolina to transition their instruction to the demands of the newly adopted English Language Arts Common Core State Standards [ELA CCSS]. It is not meant to replace a thorough reading of the standards, but rather to assist in thinking more deeply about different facets of instruction impacted by the ELA CCSS.
