Brian H. Burnett's curator insight, May 1, 2013 12:43 PM
My students LOVE to make things talk with the FaceTalker App (FREE), so when I heard that 3rd grade was doing animal reports I knew that we needed to make their animals talk about themselves. 
Students completed their research and wrote their scripts from the perspective of the animal prior to working with the iPads.  Then, with the iPads, students did a search on the Internet for an image of their animal.  The image needs to be front-facing with a closed mouth.  This image was saved to the camera roll.  (Save images from the Internet by holding your finger on the image until a menu pops up and touch "Save Image".) 
Next, the students imported the image into the FaceTalker App, and then with a little pinching and pulling they size the image and add the mouth.  Then it is time to record, save, and send to the teacher when complete!

Web literacy: Solving Complex Research Problems Using Google Efficiently

Web literacy: Solving Complex Research Problems Using Google Efficiently | Ed | Tech Dispatch | Scoop.it
Are you as worried as we are that the overall impact of technology on our children’s ability to solve complex research problems is negative? Have you heard a child near you say, “Just Google it,” when asked to describe the meaning of life?


Going Beyond ... "JUST GOOGLE IT" - Developing lessons that challenge students to learn how to conduct efficient research and how to verify sources. Some are worried that the impact of technology on our children's ability to solve complex research problems has had negative affects. How often do we hear kids (and adults) say, "Just Google It." Research has shown that students primarily use only one search engine, then only look at the first page of search results and quickly give up or settle for something that's "close enough." It's disconcerting how this plays out down the road. Students don't know what they don't know. How can we turn this around? How can we help develop our students' research skills so they are stronger and ready for entering college and their careers? This article explores this concern with some strategies of using Google and other search methods and tools.

Technology in the Classroom!

Brian H. Burnett's curator insight, April 17, 2013 12:52 PM

Children are being able to show what’s in their minds by adding the oral explanation,” he said. “That’s off-the-charts amazing.” Particularly helpful, he said, is to watch the recordings made by young children and English-language learners—students who may not speak up much in class but can actually show deep learning when asked to interview each other or record what they know. But most eye-opening, he said, is watching children have their own “aha” moments after watching recordings of themselves and talking to teachers about what they were thinking at the time."


"This notion of using the iPad to make learning visible is not without hiccups, however—particularly when it comes to filming and editing. Despite all the talk about kids being “digital natives” who can navigate iPads before they can walk, teaching children to create videos isn’t easy. When I watched the first-graders complete their assessment on systems, one girl’s videos wouldn't save at first—a technical problem that could have dissolved into a meltdown if a teacher had not been sitting right next to her to help. “It gave me gray hairs,” said a first-grade teacher about those first few weeks teaching iMovie to 6-year-olds. But she quickly added that the extra time was worth it."

Radio Rookies is a New York Public Radio initiative that provides teenagers with the tools and training to create radio stories about themselves, their communities and their world.


Since 1999, Radio Rookies has been conducting workshops across New York, in predominantly under-resourced neighborhoods, training young people to use words and sounds to tell true stories. Upon completion, the Rookies' documentaries air on WNYC


Coverage of youth in the media rarely represents what young people are truly facing, thinking and saying. By helping young people reach WNYC's audience of more than one million weekly listeners, WNYC's Radio Rookies has become an integral part of the station.

Fear of Failure | When Setting Up A Child For Success Results In Failure

Fear of Failure | When Setting Up A Child For Success Results In Failure | Ed | Tech Dispatch | Scoop.it

Some parents have a profound need to oversee every aspect of their children’s lives. They direct them academically, socially, spiritually, and every other way possible. These parents go beyond taking a loving interest in their children and attempt to plot out a life course for them, also known as helicopter parents. They feel their intervention into their child’s affairs produce an outcome better than if the child worked through the problem on his/her own. However, this ‘success’ is very short-lived. By continually solving a child’s problems, the child becomes accustomed to assistance and never learns to deal with common life issues. This failure to mature normally puts helicopter parented children at an extreme disadvantage later in life. Once they are adults, they become neurotic, anxious, and depressed. But there's help. Madeleine Levine, author of the book “Teach Your Children Well: Parenting for Authentic Success” lists five character qualities in a Yahoo article that parents need to foster in their children.


Helicopter parents often honestly believe that they are helping their children succeed. In the article ‘Helicopter’ Parents Have Neurotic Kids, psychologist Neil Montgomery suggests that helicopter parents “Know what good parenting looks like” and are just trying to “ratchet it up to a new level” in order to make their kids even better. While this might sound like reasonable thinking, it has been shown to be extremely detrimental.
