Tech will make us rethink age-grouping in schools

Tech will make us rethink age-grouping in schools | Differentiation Strategies | Scoop.it

In the past couple of years, digital education has experienced such profound growth and investment that it’s not hard to imagine that its momentum will only continue to build and re-shape schools and classrooms. But as important as building the technology to enable competency-based classrooms is building teacher support and education for new models. The technology is increasingly there, but the challenge is breaking through bureaucracy and overcoming entrenched ways of thinking about how education is structured and experienced.

"As more of our students are using touchscreen devices, teachers are realizing there is an added cost in peripherals... i.e., apps, headphones and styluses. These costs can quickly add up, so finding simple low-cost solutions is quite helpful. Below is a quick way to create your own stylus with 3 household items in just a few seconds! Plus - BONUS - it makes an awesome science activity... scroll down for more."

Making a Makerspace: Peek Inside My Plans

Making a Makerspace: Peek Inside My Plans | Differentiation Strategies | Scoop.it

On October 1st I started on my efforts toward creating a set of Makerspaces in our school district. I immediately jumped into visiting the d.school at Stanford, collecting every book I could on the topic, and fortunately had already applied to attend the FabLearn conference. A Makerspace has been my goal since the first day I started as STEM Coordinator last year, but I was only given the flexibility and permission to move forward recently.

10+ Tools To Bring Robotics (And Other Real Objects) Into Your Classroom - Edudemic | Differentiation Strategies | Scoop.it

"While tablet computers in the classroom are wonderful tools, they still have not reached the level of intuitive use that we often feel as we interact with our analog world.  As an example, there are lots of pictures of the moon that we can look up using our web browser, but seeing it first hand through a telescope offers a different level of engagement.  In the classroom, we often need our analog world to interact with our digital devices.  In the coming days I will be sharing ideas that allow teachers to use real world objects to interact with their digital iPad classroom"
