Handy Google Hangout Cheat Sheet for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Cool Edubytes for Teachers! | Scoop.it

"One of the best features of Google Plus I like so much is called Hangout. Hangout is a great way for teachers to  host group discussions online . Google Plus Hangout allows you to organize video and text conversations with your contacts. Within hangouts, users can share files, documents, and photos. Video calls on Hangouts are limited to only 10 members but using Hangout on Air will let you share your hangout live on YouTube or your website. The hangout will also be recorded and automatically saved on your YouTube channel."

The best way to learn math is to learn how to fail productively - Quartz

The best way to learn math is to learn how to fail productively - Quartz | Cool Edubytes for Teachers! | Scoop.it
Singapore, the land of many math geniuses, may have discovered the secret to learning mathematics (pdf). It employs a teaching method called productive failure (pdf), pioneered by Manu Kapur, head of the Learning Sciences Lab at the National Institute of Education of Singapore.


Students who are presented with unfamiliar concepts, asked to work through them, and then taught the solution significantly outperform those who are taught through formal instruction and problem-solving. The approach is both utterly intuitive—we learn from mistakes—and completely counter-intuitive: letting kids flail around with unfamiliar math concepts seems both inefficient and potentially damaging to their confidence."

10 Inspirational Videos for Teachers @coolcatteacher

10 Inspirational Videos for Teachers @coolcatteacher | Cool Edubytes for Teachers! | Scoop.it
We’re not here to teach, we’re here to change lives. We’re here to change minds. We’re here to shout encouragement. But we can’t do those things if we quit. We can’t do those things if we give up and wait for retirement. We can’t do these things with our feet up on our desk or doing time in the teacher’s lounge. We have to do these things in the thankless, lonely, hard working trenches of the classroom. We don’t have anyone cheering us on or even seeing the epic accomplishments we make. But in the end, we change lives. It is what we do. We change lives.

Noble teacher, get out there and do it today. The kids need you to believe in yourself. The kids need you to believe in them. You need to understand that you make a difference. Maybe in some of these clips, you’ll find your hope again. And if so, pass it on.

How Can Adults Support Student Success Without Stressing Them Out? - Mind/Shift

How Can Adults Support Student Success Without Stressing Them Out? - Mind/Shift | Cool Edubytes for Teachers! | Scoop.it
Getting into and completing college has become a very stressful proposition. Kids from low-performing schools struggle to get the honors and Advanced Placement courses to demonstrate their academic abilities, while worrying about how they’ll pay for college if they get there. But even the most fortunate students, those attending elite public and private high schools, are struggling under the pressure to perform academically, participate in extracurriculars and generally succeed at everything. Research is showing all that stress is taking a toll on young people.

Five reasons to teach robotics in schools - The Conversation

Five reasons to teach robotics in schools - The Conversation | Cool Edubytes for Teachers! | Scoop.it
Technology is critical for innovation, yet schools struggle to get students interested in this area. Could teaching robotics change this?

The Queensland government has just announced plans to make teaching robotics compulsory in its new curriculum – aimed at students from prep through to year 10.

Robotics matches the new digital technologies curriculum, strongly supported by the university sector and states, including Victoria.

But while, worldwide, there are increasing initiatives such as the Robotics Academy in the US to teach robotics in schools, Australia isn’t doing enough to get it taught in schools.

To explain why we should teach children how to program robots in schools, we first need to understand what a robot is.
