What we discovered was that there are a lot of parallels between face to face citizenship and digital citizenship, though the biggest differences are based upon the tools we use to communicate.

Why we should all think about the gamification of education

Why we should all think about the gamification of education | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
The educational system as we know it needs a revamp. Actually, a revamp is not enough. The educational system needs to be restructured. A lot of things need to change, and the sooner that happens, the better. Too many students drop out of school, and this isn’t the way to get successful... http://elearningfeeds.com/why-we-should-all-think-about-the-gamification-of-education/

The Cubist Revolution: Minecraft For All

The Cubist Revolution: Minecraft For All | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
The cubist revolution, now in its eighth year, is thriving.

That's Minecraft cubes, of course.

The game where you build virtual Lego-like worlds and populate them with people, animals and just about everything in between is one of the most popular games ever made; it's second only to Tetris as the best-selling video game of all time. There's gold in them thar cubes: More than 120 million copies have sold since Minecraft launched in 2009.*

So what's behind the game's enduring appeal?

Seymour Papert’s Legacy: Thinking About Learning, and Learning About Thinking 

Seymour Papert’s Legacy: Thinking About Learning, and Learning About Thinking  | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
Constructionism shares constructivism’s connotation of learning as ‘building knowledge structures’ irrespective of the circumstances of the learning. It then adds the idea that this happens especially felicitously in a context where the learner is consciously engaged in constructing a public entity, whether it's a sand castle on the beach or a theory of the universe.

Learners Should Be Developing Their Own Essential Questions

Learners Should Be Developing Their Own Essential Questions | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
Having essential questions drive curriculum and learning has become core to many educators' instructional practices.  Grant Wiggins, in his work on Understanding By Design, describes an essential question as: A meaning of "essential" involves important questions that recur throughout one’s life. Such questions are broad in scope and timeless by nature. They are perpetually arguable…

How has technology changed the way we learn? (Matt Harris) 

How has technology changed the way we learn? (Matt Harris)  | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

Over the years technology has been changing the way we learn, live, communicate and educate. Smartphones, laptops, social networks, unlimited access to the Internet, immediacy of information... Technology has become such a significant part of our everyday lives that we stopped noticing it. But are these changes for the good or bad? Have we become less creative and able to think deeply? How to deal with screen addictions and students’ social anxieties when it comes to face to face interactions?

 

Those are the questions we have addressed to an international educator, EdTech consultant and frequent conference speaker on educational topics – Matt Harris, Ed. D.

 

In this interview Matt shares his thoughts on the changes transforming the sphere of education and gives away the secrets of removing the destructions as well as finding the balance between screen time and face-to-face interactions.

Don’t miss an opportunity to get practical pieces of advice from an experienced educator with more than 15 years of experience in the field.

Valentina Duque's curator insight, August 15, 10:40 AM

I consider really important to take into account technology as part of our teaching methodologies. Nowadays, technology can not be let behind, since it has advanced considerably we can not isolate it from education. As a matter of fact, technology is a powerfull tool that can contribute positively if we plan how to use it correctly in order to benefit our learners.

 

Considerably it has advanced, reason why lots of teachers are afraid to use it.It is sometimes a big responsability and also, it is something that demands training and a lot of practice.However, we have to be conscious of this necessity to implement teaching sessions through technology, in order to guarantee to learners an updated and renewed educational system; besides, it would impact positively in our current  technological society and culture.

How to Integrate Green Screens Into Any Classroom (EdSurge News)

How to Integrate Green Screens Into Any Classroom (EdSurge News) | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
Green screens, once a staple of any special effects film studio, are now becoming an exciting and realistic addition for any digital classroom. But where to begin?

With a digital camera, a green backdrop, and a simple green-screen app or movie editing software, any student can incorporate this technology into their creative work.Green screen projects are certainly sensible for media arts classrooms, but there are some great applications for core subject areas, as well—especially for those teachers who are fans of project-based learning.

To get you started, I’ve provided you with information about what you’ll need to get started, and a few ideas on how to bring green screen technology into STEM, language arts, history, performance, and physical education spaces.

I’m in 'Kahoots' with technology in the classroom

I’m in 'Kahoots' with technology in the classroom | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
Teaching tool or distraction? One of the most vexing issues for faculty today is what to do about cell phones in the classroom. According to a study conducted by Dr. Jim Roberts, a marketing professor at Baylor University, college students spend between eight to ten hours daily on their cell phones. Regardless of whatever “no cell phone” policies we attempt to enforce in our classrooms, many of our students are sneakily checking Instagram or texting friends when they’re supposed to be engaged in solving matrices or analyzing Shakespeare.

Because college students use technology in nearly every aspect of their daily lives, incorporating it into the classroom can raise student interest and participation. Rather than banning all electronic devices, we can restrict off-task behavior and increase engagement through the supplementation of educational apps. Here are two apps I recommend:

5 Keys to Motivating Struggling Learners

5 Keys to Motivating Struggling Learners | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
The first key to motivating struggling learners is to build a positive relationship with each student. This is likely a priority for you and your teachers. I regularly see schools focusing on the caring aspect of school, and we should remember it truly is foundational to learning.

The old saying, “Students don’t care what you know until they know you care” is true. In addition to the standard getting-to-know-you activities and traditional methods of building a relationship, I’d like to share a new one for your teachers.

We’re asking kids all the wrong questions in school

We’re asking kids all the wrong questions in school | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
Research, and common sense, show that kids learn more by being actively engaged in what they’re doing. When they engage in discussion, teach others, and grapple with a math problem, they boost their ability to absorb and retain information. The evidence is mounting against schools that fail to take this approach. Most are still built around making sure kids have the right answers to rote questions, rather than the tools to formulate meaningful questions that deepen their learning. In a randomized controlled trial of nearly 2,500 nine and 10 year-olds in the UK, students who were taught the skill of reason—how to formulate questions and thoughtfully explain an argument—performed better on assessments of math, science, and English than kids who had not been exposed to this kind of skill-building.
