Wonderful list of presentation software available on the internet for teachers or students in need of creative ways to teach subject content or apply creativity to content already learned. Also includes a fabulous Ipad ap for creating photo presentations, a scribe/doodle program and several less-known presentation software similar to the concept of PowerPoint.

Schools should be more like farms, not factories

Schools should be more like farms, not factories | K-12 Connected Learning | Scoop.it

If we want to transform the failing model, we need a new analogy for how that model is supposed to work, Robinson argues. We treat education like industrial manufacturing when, in reality, it's closer to organic farming. In farming, crop has different needs at different times in order to produce the greatest yield. Why not apply the process to education?

This seems like such a more humane way to see students and the educational process!

Rebecca Wilkins's curator insight, July 30, 9:32 PM

He is correct, schools are not factories that create duplicate models of a prototype.  Schools are also not a business, where the latest organizational model makes the system effective.  Schools are more like a community, where everyone works together to accomplish the goals developed collaboratively by all stakeholders in the community.  Notice that state and federal politicians are not in the community.

The choice of tools should be based on student activities and the best methods for engaging, entertaining and educating students, Bradbury argues.

 

“They don’t seem to care so much what device they are using. They want the technology to work and they want to have students be passionately engaged.”
