Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Next Generation Lesson Planning

Reduce, Reuse, Recycle: Next Generation Lesson Planning | EdTech, BYOD, 1:1, Tech Integration | Scoop.it

"Fishtree’s next generation learning platform has a brand new feature. Not only can teachers create lessons using the best open education and real-time resources, with this new feature, teachers can now add their own content, without jumping from site to site. This means reducing, reusing and recycling lesson plans, ultimately saving time and keeping the yawns at bay. With this easy-to-use feature, educators can upload their own files directly from computers, laptops, tablet devices, phones, flash drives, hard drives and any other storage device with a connection.

Using the Fishtree application, I can:

1. Create a lesson using the most interactive and up-to-date resources from all major sources such as Youtube, Khan Academy, and Wikipedia.

2. Add some real-time content from sources like BBC and Biography.com.

3. Edit with my own instruction.

4. Add my own stored resources. What’s more, all resources are available from one place, adapted to my needs, meaning less time is wasted looking for the best material, it’s all right there."

Back to School Made Easy for Teachers

Back to School Made Easy for Teachers | EdTech, BYOD, 1:1, Tech Integration | Scoop.it

"We’re all aware of the importance of differentiation nowadays. As teachers, we’re continually expected to provide differentiated activities and assessments. When you imagine a class of thirty students who all learn differently and at different paces, this process doesn’t seem so easy. I used to ensure I kept on top of my differentiating duties by providing different worksheets and tasks for certain students in every class. But the planning and preparation, not to mention the grading, of this process often meant I just didn’t have the time to differentiate as much as I would have liked.

 

When I tried Fishtree initially, I wasn’t sure what was meant by adaptive and personalized learning. In teaching terms, we’re basically talking about differentiation made easy. By logging each of my students into the system, different resources and assessments are automatically generated, according to a student’s specific needs and abilities. All I have to do is view the assessments once completed and interact with students based on assignments when needed. Once each differentiated assignment is complete, Fishtree then either grades it for me, or allows me to do so, adding my own feedback where necessary. The system saves a teacher so much time while ensuring every single student receives the education they deserve. It really is next generation learning!"

Mobile Learning: 50+ Resources & Tips

Mobile Learning: 50+ Resources & Tips | EdTech, BYOD, 1:1, Tech Integration | Scoop.it

"I believe mobile devices will transform education. This is why I created a free ebook,Effective Mobile Learning: 50+ Quick Tips & Resources with helpful tips and several resources to help support this trend. One reason is because mobile devices are designed in a way that forces the teacher to give control to the learner. When we equip a classroom with iPads, iPods, small tablets, or cellphones the learning is literally put in the hands of the students. The teacher has to facilitate and walk around the room to manage the learning. Below are a list of 50+ Mobile Learning resources & growing! I hope this will help any educator new to integrating mobile devices with the knowledge they need to be successful! Feel free to pass these resources around and use them with your staff."

Technology for Technology's Sake?

Technology for Technology's Sake? | EdTech, BYOD, 1:1, Tech Integration | Scoop.it

I ask myself this question often, especially as a teacher in a 1:1 learning environment. Striking the balance of using the technology in a meaningful way while teaching and guiding students effectively can be a challenge. I often stop to ask myself if the technology is truly necessary to enhance the learning experience for my students.
