Validating Data in Google Forms

Validating Data in Google Forms | Digital Learning Ideas | Scoop.it

Alice writes: "I love using Google Forms in my classroom to collect student work, and I know many others do as well. However, did you know that you could validate the data that you collect?"

Sometimes Twitter is problematic for schools. But we can create our own Twitter-ish thread by using Google Forms... need to investigate further.. be back soon!

This would be great if you wanted students to write Twitter book reviews.  Set the character count to 140, then add to your library's Twitter feed!

Maker Social-Emotional Learning Resources | Anna Crosland, T.L. | Digital Learning Ideas | Scoop.it
MakerSpaces can be a great catalyst for the growth of social-emotional learning.  Facilitating a maker culture can give students a venue for the development of the tools they need to recognize, understand and manage emotions and to make the responsible decisions that are critical to being a successful learner. These life long skills must be clearly articulated and deliberately discussed so that they become an intrinsic foundation for the emotional health of the student.



There are many excellent social emotional learning titles that can be used to encourage SEL development. However, a few of these also blend very well with a Maker mentality and build on some important tenants of social and emotional well being.

Girls more anxious about mathematics, STEM subjects compared to boys

Girls more anxious about mathematics, STEM subjects compared to boys | Digital Learning Ideas | Scoop.it
Global studies have shown that women are underrepresented in some science, technology, engineering and mathematics (STEM) subjects and fields. Even in countries with higher gender equality, sex differences in math and technical scores persist. Now, using international data, a team of psychologists from the University of Missouri, the University of California-Irvine and the University of Glasgow in Scotland, have determined that, overall, girls experience negative emotions about mathematics that can result in avoidance of math topics.

50 Web Tools & Mobile Apps for Showcasing Student Work

50 Web Tools & Mobile Apps for Showcasing Student Work | Digital Learning Ideas | Scoop.it
With a myriad of web tools and apps available to teachers, it’s sometimes mind-boggling trying to identify which are the most effective for the classroom. But if you’re looking for some…
Sample Student's insight:
Thinking outside the box here, with a number of suggestions fo showcasing student learning... perhaps the big difference between each of the tools here is to consider not merely 'work' but LEARNING. This will help your students to make decisions about which tool would best fit their needs. What is the nature and type of learning they are sharing? Beyond that, who is their audience? It is a complex decision that is made with regard to selecting the most appropriate tool to meet the needs of the audience and the type of learning to be communicated.
As the poster states, there will always be disadvantages with any tool or technology, rationalising its use is important.

Why Making and the Arts Need Each Other to Survive and Thrive in Schools (EdSurge News)

Why Making and the Arts Need Each Other to Survive and Thrive in Schools (EdSurge News) | Digital Learning Ideas | Scoop.it
When the visual and performing arts, the musical and recording arts, and the theatrical and graphical arts are seen as mere luxuries or add-ons within the walls of a school, powerful forces are thereby prevented from transforming routine schooling into a renaissance of learning.

But who has the time or the funding to allow that to happen?

Instead, let’s ask ourselves: How can these constraints compel us to leverage our creativity? For instance, let's look at the constraint of time. Time is a powerful variable driving the operation of schools. Just consider the constructs of grade levels, attendance and seat time, school days and class periods, final exams and grade reports, and standardized testing. Will we ever see learning as having only an illusionary progression when we track it over time in the ways listed above?


Created by Tom Barrett, Tweeted out by Bryan Mathers
The reality is, within and outside of schools, learning is taking place in ways that are profoundly nonlinear—cyclically, recursively, seasonally, developmentally, reactively and divergently (shown above). The non-linearity of learning is not a new idea. Conditions in society’s economic and technological spheres, however—at levels from local to global—have amped up stresses on our schooling systems more than ever before as we work within the confines of time.

What forces, then, may allow us to break the chains with which time and funding bind us to those linear practices? My answer to you is this: We must bring more arts programming—and blend it with the maker movement—into our schools.

50 Ideas And Resources For More Visual Learning - | Digital Learning Ideas | Scoop.it
RT @SNewco: 50 Ideas And Resources For More Visual Learning https://t.co/VcMMpVBrcm #edchat #edtech
Via Jim Lerman
Sample Student's insight:
Evolving from the days of the printing press, mass dissemination of information was, until the mid 20th Century primarily achieved using text. Whereas video, sound and movies, and images emerged as powerful social messages, within the classroom context the almost-singular focus on text as a means to communicate continued. And the means to create and disseminate these messages were retained in the hands of the knowledgeable creators.
With the advent of the web and its own evolution, we are no longer reliant on print media. We only have to consider the ongoing demise of print media companies, newspapers, journals and magazines to understand the overwhelming social movement to multimodal communication on the web. And at the spearhead of the movement is the capacity of the ordinary citizen to create the same resources as have always been created by the experts.
If we do not embrace this movement in formal education we are at risk of widening the divide between the visual learning that is more common in informal education, and what occurs in the classroom.
But beyond this even is the power of visual thinking, the use of graphic organisers to support and transform thinking. This resource demonstrates some of he common, and some of the less common.

The Maker Movement in K-12 Education: A Guide to Emerging Research - EdWeek

The Maker Movement in K-12 Education: A Guide to Emerging Research - EdWeek | Digital Learning Ideas | Scoop.it

"New trends in K-12 ed tech are as hot—or as under-researched—as "Maker" education.

The term generally refers to using a wide variety of hands-on activities (such as building, computer programming, and sewing) to support academic learning and the development of a mindset that values playfulness and experimentation, growth and iteration, and collaboration and community. 

Typically, "Making" involves attempting to solve a particular problem, creating a physical or digital artifact, and sharing that product with a larger audience. Often, such work is guided by the notion that process is more important than results.

The Maker Movement has its roots outside of school, in institutions such as science museums and in the informal activities that everyday people have taken part in for generations. It began exploding about a decade ago, thanks in large part to the enthusiastic audience of Make magazine and the popularity of public events such as Maker Faires (the most well-known of which was hosted by President Barack Obama at the White House in 2014.) The rise of cheap digital tools, including microcontroller platforms such as Arduino and rapid-prototyping tools such as 3-D printers, has in recent years lent the movement a decidedly techie flavor.

Efforts to bring Making and "Maker spaces" into K-12 schools are still "nascent," said Erica Halverson, an associate professor of curriculum and instruction at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a leading researcher into Maker education.

But that's changing fast."
