I like some of these ideas. I'm thinking we could have students make podcast booktalks and have QR codes linking to them in the books or on a display or around the school. Hmm...kids can't use their phones at school, yet. Well, I can always put links to them in our catalog and on the website.

Connie Wise's curator insight, July 23, 2013 12:04 AM

Use podcasting to meet Common Core standards of speaking & writing.

The Persistent Appeal of Technology in Learning

The Persistent Appeal of Technology in Learning | Blended-learning | Scoop.it

The technology they use in their personal lives just makes sense for use in their learning as well. If a student badly wanted a new tablet or app for his or her own personal use but wanted nothing to do with it for any kind of learning whatsoever, we may need to look at the disconnect.

But there are other reasons why education consistently turns to technology

5 Ways To Really Connect With Online Students - Edudemic | Blended-learning | Scoop.it
In this world of increased online education, it's important for students and instructors to really know how to connect with online students.

 

From parents to working professionals, students of all types are enthusiastic about online education — as long as it’s done right. Historically, however, online classes have not been very good experiences, with outcomes being marginal at best. Here are five ways instructors can connect with their students, making sure the online education experience is worthwhile for everyone:

Creating a presentation or slideshow is one of the staples of any 21st Century Classroom.  This is a skill that almost every educator has and is a must known skill for any successful student.  It used to be that only programs such as PowerPoint could create presentations.  However, now there are lots of sites and apps that not only creating stunning presentations but also make it easier then ever.  Below is my list of some of my favorite tools for creating beautiful looking presentations/slideshows.

What Works in Schools Is Real Work

What Works in Schools Is Real Work | Blended-learning | Scoop.it

"The best type of curriculum for preparing students for the workforce is one that focuses on real-world problem-solving. It sounds simple, but for the first time, we have clearly established a link between students learning 21st century skills and future work success."

This report is based on a survey done by Gallup for Microsoft Learning and the Pearson Foundation. There are many findings of interest in this report. Three are below (quoted from the report).

* The majority of respondents (59%) reported that they agree or strongly agree that they developed most of the skills they use in their current job outside of school. Only 15% disagree or strongly disagree, indicating they felt that they developed these skills in school.

* Developing 21st century skills in the last year of school is positively correlated with higher perceived work quality later in life. In fact, those who have high 21st century skill development are twice as likely to have higher work quality compared to those who had low 21st century skill development.

* Across the 21st century skills included in this study, real world problem-solving is the significant driver of higher work quality; however, less than two-thirds (63%) of respondents reported developing this skill often in the last year of school and that number drops to less than half (39%) for high school graduates

Is your school providing students with these skills? The survey also noted that 59% of participants reported learning these skills outside the classroom. To go directly to the report: http://www.gallup.com/strategicconsulting/162821/21st-century-skills-workplace.aspx.

Working in a corporate industry for twenty three years and seeing the rise of operators, school leavers would benefit from 21st technological studies and how that applies to the workplace.
