What Teachers Want More than New Technologies? PD Opportunities To Learn to Use them Effectively - EdTechReview™ (ETR) | Vocational Literacy | Scoop.it

Without professional development that can give teachers the full practical knowledge on the use of technology, you will not see technology being successfully integrated in the classrooms for better learning.

Good points

Ness Crouch's curator insight, April 4, 2015 10:20 PM

I'm hearing you! A common problem with introducing new ideas or technologies. There is always a need for professional learning to help teachers feel comfortable with what is new.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, April 8, 2015 8:35 PM

This is a very useful article. Well worth a read if you are trying to change pedagogy around using mobile devices. 

Jamie Dammann's curator insight, October 25, 2015 8:57 PM

Technology: I chose this resource because we are currently in the process of rolling out a pilot program at one of our schools where tablets will be implemented into all the classrooms for every student. I like how this article talks about moving beyond apps and how they can be used successfully.

Once the MOOC 'revolution' got underway, universities, usually slow-moving and tight-fisted institutions, couldn't run fast enough to put their own MOOCs online. And, right now, we're seeing the results.

Numbered Wallpapers - Learning in Hand | Vocational Literacy | Scoop.it
A great management tip for school or class sets of iPads, tablets, and
iPods is to number each device. Setting the lock screen wallpaper to an
image with each device's number will make it easy to identify devices.

From Tony Vincent. Learning in Hand TCC 4-1

Podcasting was my first exposure to Tony Vincent (@learninginhand, @tonyvincent or on FB) and his website. He still has the most amazing lesson plan for a podcast about your town. 

But as you can see there is a Twitter feed and FaceBook addition. A blog page has instructions on ideas you can use in class. QR code cubes for selecting a reflection topic, ipad uses, instagrams 10 feet long, jigsaw puzzle makers, and on and on…

Terri Roberts's curator insight, August 23, 2013 9:05 AM

Great idea carts of ipads, especially for elementary students!

How To Create QR Codes To Use In Your Classroom ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog

How To Create QR Codes To Use In Your Classroom ~ Mrs. Wideen's Blog | Vocational Literacy | Scoop.it

"A QR Code is a type of barcode that is readable by dedicated QRbarcode readers and camera telephones. The code consists of black modules arranged in a square pattern on a white background. The information encoded may be text you want students to read, websites, or video.'

 

A very quick way to incorporate QR codes in your classroom is to simply create a QR code so students can get to a website quickly and efficiently.  How many times have you written a website on the board for your students to go to and you get 10 students saying that they can’t get to the website because they have typed it incorrectly?
