5 Common Uses Of Technology In The Classroom & How We Screw Them Up

5 Common Uses Of Technology In The Classroom & How We Screw Them Up | ed tech.computer class.writing ctr.ICT skills | Scoop.it

"Using technology to enhance learning is an incredibly exciting idea, and as an area of education is growing fast. Blended learning, mobile learning, connectivism, and other increasingly popular ideas all owe their existence to technology. But the reality in the majority of public schools in the United States is less than cutting edge. While there is little data available to pinpoint exactly what is being done where, five of the more common applications of technology in the classroom appear below. The unfortunate reality here is that in lieu of significant progress in how technology is used in the learning process, significant work remains to do a better job understanding how these tools can function to increase depth of knowledge, learning curiosity, and critical thinking skills."

11 Sample Education BYOT Policies To Help You Create Your Own | TeachThought.com

11 Sample Education BYOT Policies To Help You Create Your Own | TeachThought.com | ed tech.computer class.writing ctr.ICT skills | Scoop.it

 

We’re putting together some research for some upcoming BYOT policy content, and in the course of doing so found many existing policies enlightening.

 

For starters, it is clear that some districts were more open-minded entering their BYOT programs than others. Many “policies” (not included below) were really more of a set of rules and consequences for breaking the rules than they were a supporting framework for teachers and students.

 

In the end, every situation is different. There is no single “right way” to implement a BYOT program, so we’ve included 11 widely varying policy styles below, with each authoring school or district named inline.

Coding is for Everybody: Learning through Creating, Personalizing, Sharing, and Reflecting | Connected Learning

Coding is for Everybody: Learning through Creating, Personalizing, Sharing, and Reflecting | Connected Learning | ed tech.computer class.writing ctr.ICT skills | Scoop.it

Many people view computer programming as a narrow technical skill, useful only for a small subset of the population. But coding can be for everyone, enabling people with diverse interests to develop new strategies for thinking, learning, and expressing themselves.

 

In this month-long series of activities and discussions, we’ll explore how and what young people learn as they program and share interactive stories, games, animations, and simulations -- and how educators can support young people as they design, share, and learn. We'll focus on experiences with the Scratch programming language and the ScratchEd community for educators who help others learn with Scratch.
