5 Guidelines for Using Technology to Motivate Students

5 Guidelines for Using Technology to Motivate Students | Cool Edubytes for Teachers! | Scoop.it
Recently I attended a departmental meeting to discuss students at risk of failing out of their degree program. Many of these students are bright and talented people, but they stopped showing up to class. They produced shoddy, incomplete work. Around the table, their instructors described them as “disengaged,” “careless” and in need of getting their “priorities straight.” Sound familiar? Student motivation, or rather the lack thereof, is a perennial problem for educators. It’s become obvious to m

Ninguna herramienta Tecnológica es infalible y ante ello siempre hay que tener un plan B...calma y asumir que navegamos en aguas caóticas que nos implicarán flexibilidad!!!!


Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 13, 2014 4:49 PM

One thing that would be helpful is not to force digital technologies on good teachers. They need support and it can be provided by providing them with opportunities to plan their professional development. They other thing that is important is do not assume that resistance is being tech shy. I resisted, but am hardly tech shy. What I resisted was the external experts who thought they knew more about my teaching and students than I did.

This story map is a great visual of the current refugee crisis. This would be a helpful aid in describing the geographical barriers refugees face and how it affects them. For example the map shows where highest concentrations of deaths occur, naturally it is in the ocean. The ocean is a barrier for fleeing refugees. Think about how different landscapes and land forms can affect refugees available paths to flee

Are You A Tech-Savvy Teacher, This Infographic Will Tell You | TechFaster

Are You A Tech-Savvy Teacher, This Infographic Will Tell You | TechFaster | Cool Edubytes for Teachers! | Scoop.it
Through the course of our “summer school” here at Techfaster we’ve met plenty of tech savvy educators. From ISTE in early July to the NAESP show and Campus Tech that wrapped up this week, teachers, administrators and education enthusiasts were learning, sharing, and networking with each other. These are definitely the tech savvy teacher type, and that’s validated in the infographic below from Daily Genius. But just because you spent part of the summer at EdTech conferences doesn’t necessarily mean you are a tech savvy teacher. Of course the reverse is true as well, maybe you had family events and your own kids to tend to during the summer. Are you a tech savvy teacher? A strong indicator would be that you’re even reading this article here at techfaster.com. Are you keeping your students, parents, fellow teachers and administrators up to date with the goings on in your classroom with your own blog? That’s a good sign you’re a tech savvy teacher. Just think about what the communication you can have with a blog, would have been like in the days of the ditto machine? You would have to plan out your thoughts, outline them, create a ditto original, print them, pass them out to students, and just pray they didn’t end up on the floor of the school bus. Are you networking with other teachers you’ve never met on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest or a knowledge sharing educational site? Are you regularly attending edtech chat or listening to podcasts? All of these are signs that you care about your own professional development, living in current times and caring about your students. YouTube, Twitter, SnapChat, Minecraft, Instagram, and Vine are all a part of your students lives. Facebook, Pinterest and email are all a part of your students’ parents’ lives. You’re almost too far behind if you’re not a “tech savvy” teacher. Check out the infographic below and see how you stack up.

Great site - showing locational context is important for not just Geography but every subject. How can we understand the complexities of topics like conflict or urban economies or agricultural histories.... without understanding locations and maps?

It was nice to see where everything was happening. I hope it gets updated to more current events. I wish we had something like this when we were looking at the invasion of Kuwait.

Caroline Ivy's curator insight, March 15, 2015 5:19 PM

Seth Dixon uses ArgGIS to juxtapose maps with the location a video is associated with. 

 

This idea has crossed my mind before. Now, a video can be contemplated with the spatial accuracy needed. This connects events to a place, and can help students more fully grasp the geospatial distribution of events.
