Teach teachers how to create magic

Teach teachers how to create magic | Ed Tech | Scoop.it
What do rap shows, barbershop banter and Sunday services have in common? As Christopher Emdin says, they all hold the secret magic to enthrall and teach at the same time — and it’s a skill we often don't teach to educators. The science advocate (and cofounder of Science Genius B.A.T.T.L.E.S. with the GZA of the Wu-Tang Clan) offers a vision to make the classroom come alive.
Jamie Torgerson Willett's insight:

I love the idea of TEACHING teachers to be engaging instead of just hoping they are.

Blended Learning: Creating Awesome Online Discussions

Blended Learning: Creating Awesome Online Discussions | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

Tim Robinson: If our students think that the discussion posting is useless and not at all entertaining. It likely means that it is useless and not at all entertaining. We know this because we often feel the same way when we have to make contrived discussions posts. It’s not that our jobs are about entertaining students, but we do need to do what we can do make it at least tolerable.

 

If we can expand our understanding of the tool to get beyond just ‘discussions’ but see it as a platform for other creative ways to explore a topic, we’ll find a much richer level of learning. We can, maybe, even have some fun with it.

3 Steps to Leverage Google Drive in the Classroom

3 Steps to Leverage Google Drive in the Classroom | Ed Tech | Scoop.it

By Andrew Marcinek

When I am asked what tools or applications I am most fond of in education technology, the first thing I will say is Google Docs (Now termed Google Drive). Google Docs have been one of the best additions to the educational technology landscape in the past ten years. A Google Doc is an intuitive application and aligns across the K-12 content areas and Common Core. It’s a tool that sheds a new light, most importantly, on the writing process, the revision and reflection process in writing, and with peer editing and collaboration. In a nutshell, Google Drive checks all of these pedagogical boxes.
