Defining Digital Citizenship | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

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/

Transcend the Classroom with Virtual Place-Based Learning

Transcend the Classroom with Virtual Place-Based Learning | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
Simulation-based learning allows us to play in a highly immersive environment that reflects aspects of the real world. In virtual simulations, we can explore and create with much lower stakes than we would encounter in the real world. Questions of “What if?” flourish in a virtual simulation as we create and experience new possibilities with increasing realism. With smartphones making access to virtual reality easier and easier, virtual simulations can now become part of place-based learning in the classroom.

Robotics and Computer Science for Elementary Level Learners @JackieGerstein

Robotics and Computer Science for Elementary Level Learners @JackieGerstein | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
I absolutely love all of the new robotics toys that have been coming out for elementary age learners.  I have been using them for my summer maker camp, with my gifted education classes, and for my upcoming Saturday morning program. One of my gifted girls noted, “Where do all of these robots come from?” I laughed and told her, “It’s actually has become one of my passions. Collecting them has become a major hobby of mine.”

I usually use them for an hour per week with my two groups of gifted learners.  I am an advocate of student-centric learning and giving them choices as to which instructional activities they would like to engage. For their robotics hour each week, I am giving them the following choices with their goal of using five of the robotics to complete five of the tasks provided.

How will Cloud Based Schools change our education?

As the concept of learning is becoming more centered around self-learning, will our current school system be relevant in the next 10 years? Could our schools be based in the Cloud? In this session, we explore how schools can leverage the right technologies to be relevant in the 21st century and share key insights from experiments of Self Organized Learning Environments.

Dymas Low's comment, January 15, 8:27 AM
In my opinion, I feel that it is fine to give little children some time with the Internet and allow them to use smart devices such as smartphones and tablets as long as there is adequate adult supervision. After all, by exposing children to such devices since young, they will be able to use them with ease in the future. Obviously, these devices should not be their main learning experience, parents should be a part of their child's learning since research shows that human guidance can help draw the connections between things for a toddler.
Kylie Cho's comment, Today, 4:09 AM
With technological developments in today’s modern context, it is not surprising that our reliance on technology has increased. I feel that it is alright for children to learn from educational applications on iPads as long as they are able to strike a healthy balance between learning from screens and from real people. It is no doubt that tablets have brought about greater convenience and accessibility, therefore it is easier for children to learn from digital devices. However, they should still be physically involved in learning from hard copy books and real objects too.
Ray Han's comment, Today, 6:40 AM
While I agree that it is alright for children to be exposed to technological devices at a young age, parents and the adults around them should control their usage of such devices. It is with no doubt that such devices are useful in aiding us to understand certain skills and concepts better, social scaffolding should also be present, so as to better guide the children in better understanding of the concepts shown on the touchscreen. After all, the mental development of young children is not yet complete, and leaving them to their own devices and exploration would not allow them to fully understand what is shown to them. Instead, patient guidance from siblings or adults should also be present, as human interaction is always beneficial to young children, who are all social creatures. Besides, young children are generally not sensible enough to control their fascination over the small touchscreen device, and it is observable in our society that more children are having a smartphone or tablet in their hands, instead of interacting with the people around them. This will lead to distant relationships, and the society we live in would lack of warmth and the humane touch.

How virtual reality technology is changing the way students learn

How virtual reality technology is changing the way students learn | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
For many years, schools and universities have had to change the way they work and teach in order to fit in with technology.

Software like PowerPoint, for example, which has long been used as an education tool, wasn’t designed for education. Nonetheless, it has been a staple tool in education settings, used as a way to present information in template, bite-size formats.

But this isn’t always a good thing.

The use of digital technologies sees some teachers and students presenting information using templates, which means much of the individual character of teachers’ practices can be lost.

Research shows that software such as PowerPoint can homogenise and sanitise the way teachers present information to their students.

Only more recently are we seeing technology being designed and utilised specifically for education contexts, and it’s changing the way students learn and understand things.

How To Use Brain Science To Be Your Best Self In 2017

How To Use Brain Science To Be Your Best Self In 2017 | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

Resolutions are often an exercise in wishful thinking. People rarely keep them, mostly because they’re vague about their goals and don’t have a plan for following through. But that isn't the only thing that may weaken resolve or slow progress toward a goal. Failing to understand some practical brain science can just as quickly do you in.

 

Neuroscience has shown us this year that we may actually have everything we need to stay focused, be more creative, remember more, and make better decisions—just as long as we can work a bit more with our brains, not against them. Here are a few things we learned that can take you closer toward being your best self in 2017.

Degrees don’t matter anymore, skills do

Degrees don’t matter anymore, skills do | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
More and more, employers are going to want to see some proof that a potential employee has actually gained particular skills. So certificates that can credibly attest to someone’s ability to write computer code, write a decent essay, use a spreadsheet, or give a persuasive speech are going to be worth more and more. And any training program that takes the need to maintain its own credibility seriously can help students gain those skills and certify them for employers in a way that bypasses the existing educational establishment.
