First Class Ice Breakers Using Mobile Devices - User Generated Education

First Class Ice Breakers Using Mobile Devices - User Generated Education | Dyslexic learners | Scoop.it

"All of my classes, regardless of student age or demographics – elementary gifted students or graduate students, begin with ice-breakers and team-building activities.  I recently developed a passion for using students’ mobile devices to do so as this devices have become natural and personalized extensions of students’ “selves.”"

Dr Pam Hill's curator insight, September 16, 2013 9:46 AM

This is one of the first resources to actively use digital tools to upgrade the minutes before instruction starts.  In my professional experience this would be very useful.  I think this is a new area that can be developed further to build in opportunities for students to use technology to deepen their learning.  What do you think?  Would you use this new resource?

Done similar things with Padlet.

Five Good Options for Creating Mind Maps on Your iPad - iPads for Schools

Five Good Options for Creating Mind Maps on Your iPad - iPads for Schools | Dyslexic learners | Scoop.it

"I’m a big fan of mind mapping as a method for organizing thoughts, connecting concepts, and visualizing the big picture of concept. In fact, I think that the mind mapping process is so valuable that I created an entire workshop about it. I’ve tried a lot of mind mapping tools over the years. Here are five like I have installed on my iPad right now."

This was a great project for our teachers last year.  We are posting their info graphics outside out Office of Professional Development.  

Gayle Kakac's curator insight, September 30, 2013 8:10 PM

Been loving infographics and looking for a good way to incorporate these.  Hoping for an app that would make them easily.  We'll see what this has to say...

I know that use of Infographics in any student project can improve their results.

How to Use Pinterest to Create an Awesome Resume That Stands Out

How to Use Pinterest to Create an Awesome Resume That Stands Out | Dyslexic learners | Scoop.it
f you decide to use Pinterest as a resume or portfolio tool, you have two options: create a board or whole account to showcase your skills. If you create a board, it will be one URL and one stream with all of your resume/portfolio items. If you have enough items that pulling them into one stream could be too cluttered, you could create a dedicated Pinterest account with several boards to organize your items into. What your best option is will depend on your profession and experience level.

Jessica Rieman's curator insight, April 4, 2014 12:10 AM

It is interesting to find out that in this specific article there is controversy over the looting of tombs over 5,000 years ago as soon as the deceased were buried there were many more looting acts taken place. The Arab spring is an important landmark to think of when relating this to the reading.

Lauren Sellers's curator insight, May 20, 2014 11:51 AM

This describes human characteristics that defined this region because it shows how ancient artifacts are being unearthed through new-age technology.

Felix Ramos Jr.'s curator insight, March 19, 2015 10:49 AM

Space archaeology only makes sense.  If we have the capability for satellites to take pictures of earth from above why shouldn't it be used for archaeological analysis?  I am sure that this is only the tip of the iceberg as far as what we will see in the future from this specific field. This article/video just lends more credibility to the fact that Archaeology should function as an interdisciplinary field.

To practice pronunciation students can listen to a recording and then create their own recordings (open the preferences panel to turn on the built-in recordings). The person working with a student can mark the student’s recording correct or incorrect."

This is a great application to use! My son currently uses this app and I can tell that while he enjoys it, he is also learning.

Thanks, dear Fabienne, this is really insightful.

In teaching one might want to progressively move from one level to the next, yet I would expect that one could work on all levels simultaneously.

How much more would children learn when they ask their 3-year-old, "What do you think ..."
