Becoming Innovative: 15 New Ideas Every Teacher Should Try -

Becoming Innovative: 15 New Ideas Every Teacher Should Try - | Connected Learning | Scoop.it
What are the latest emerging trends in education?

As trends to do, these are changing almost yearly. Consider how quiet iPads in the classroom have been recently, whereas three years ago they were going to replace teachers and were (unsarcastically) compared to magic. While mobile devices like the iPad can indeed parallel a kind of magic in the learning process, it obviously has to ‘fit’ into a progressive supporting ecology of assessment, curriculum, and instruction.

With that in mind, we’ve created a list of 15 (the graphic plus 3 bonus items below) new ideas every teacher should try. Not all will fit or work–again, it depends on the ecology of the classroom, school, and so on. But each of these ideas below–some learning models, some concepts, and some technologies–can be transformational for students, and your teaching.

Wearable Technology Expected to Flourish in Classrooms -- THE Journal

Wearable Technology Expected to Flourish in Classrooms -- THE Journal | Connected Learning | Scoop.it
Classroom wearable technology in the United States is expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of nearly 46 percent over the next four years, according to a recent report released by Research and Markets, a Dublin, Ireland-based market research firm.

“Classroom Wearables Technology Market in the U.S. 2016-2020” covered the present scenario and the growth prospects of the scholastic wearables market, which includes devices such as smart glasses, smart watches, fitness trackers, wearable cameras and virtual reality headgear. To calculate the market size, the report documented classroom wearable devices by product, in K-12 schools, in higher education, by revenue in 2014 and 2015 and by shipments. The classroom wearables market appears to be a multi-billion dollar industry.

Emerging Industries – The Robots Are Here (in all Shapes and Sizes)! — Emerging Education Technologies

Emerging Industries – The Robots Are Here (in all Shapes and Sizes)! — Emerging Education Technologies | Connected Learning | Scoop.it
This week we’re examining the recently published book, The Industries of the Future, by Alec Ross.

Imagine if, in the middle of the 20th century, you lived in “coal country” in America and you had access to knowledge that the coal industry was going to undergo massive change in the coming decades? What if you lived in Detroit and foresaw the impact of global changes to the automotive industry? Jumping to more recent times, we see Uber sending the taxi industry reeling, the gradual disappearance of many jobs to automation, and the potential for more and more changes as the digitization of one industry after another impacts jobs, economies, and lives.

If only there was a crystal ball that could have helped people foresee these changes. Alec Ross has provided the closest thing to that crystal orb for the coming the decades in The Industries of the Future.

Tinkering Spaces: How Equity Means More Than Access | #Maker #MakerED #MakerSpace 

Tinkering Spaces: How Equity Means More Than Access | #Maker #MakerED #MakerSpace  | Connected Learning | Scoop.it
The Maker Movement has helped spur renewed interest in hands-on learning and the value of spaces where children can explore their own ideas, be creative, and tinker. Some schools have made makerspaces and FabLabs a priority, building making activities into the curriculum and encouraging kids through afterschool activities. In large part, this new excitement has come from a predominantly white, male sensibility and conversations about equity and tinkering tend to focus on questions of access to makerspaces and to tools.

What if young people designed their own learning?

What if young people designed their own learning? | Connected Learning | Scoop.it
Across Australia some of these ideas are being put into practice. Some schools have dropped the notion of year levels to enable them to meet children at their point of need and acknowledge that not all students learn at the same pace.

Computer programs are enabling instruction tailored to the student by assessing where they are at and providing a tailored curriculum.

Capabilities , such as personal and social capability and critical and creative thinking, are being embedded in the curriculum. Work is under way to develop assessment measures. Teachers across Australia are working on developing new models of practice to support this approach.

We need to accelerate the change. We are wasting too much of students’ learning time and are failing to amplify their talents. To continue along the current path is increasingly unscientific, unjustifiable and plain dull.

​‘Diversity Does Not Happen By Accident’ and Other Lessons About Equity in the Maker Movement (EdSurge News)

​‘Diversity Does Not Happen By Accident’ and Other Lessons About Equity in the Maker Movement (EdSurge News) | Connected Learning | Scoop.it

"It has never been easier to hop onboard the Maker Movement. In recent years, the prices of expensive tools, such as 3D printers, have dropped drastically. Project-based learning, as an alternative to the traditional lecture-based instructional approach, has won admirers among academics and teachers as a better way to help students develop 21st century skills. Today there are more makerspaces in schools, and more teachers willing to become part of this community. But do all students—regardless of background—have the same opportunity to be part of this movement? 


Sadly, the answer is no. On a panel, “Equity in Making and Creating with Technology,” organized by the Stanford Graduate School of Education, researchers and practitioners explored the importance of broadening access to making and creating technology to underrepresented groups."

Mobile Maker Spaces - School Library Journal | Connected Learning | Scoop.it

"The concept was pretty straightforward, but the logistics were a bit complicated. We wanted to create four mobile maker space carts that could rotate among four middle school libraries in the Knox County School district of Knoxville, TN. It all started when our director of instructional technology, Theresa Nixon, encouraged us to apply for a TeacherPreneur Grant to fund a traveling maker space program. Our funding goal was approximately $50,000. Requesting  this much money meant that we needed a
an idea that dazzled. 


As we prepared the grant application, the librarians representing the middle schools (Farragut, Vine, Carter, and Karns) discussed rotating maker space carts that would dock in each library for nine weeks. We hoped to optimize accessibility to high-ticket items such as 3-D printers and keep our libraries dynamic with new projects."
