Tech Is Not a Treat: Responding to Device Misuse

Tech Is Not a Treat: Responding to Device Misuse | EDTECH | Scoop.it
As more and more of our classrooms go 1:1 with technology, they are being faced with new challenges. One that looms over many teachers' heads is what to do when students misuse the devices? That is, what is the appropriate response when a student is on the wrong app at the wrong time, downloads games to their device when they're supposed to be building a website, writes four-lettered words on a class discussion board, or worse - engages in cyberbullying?

Maslow's self-actualization needs vs. Pink's intrinsic motivators (purpose, autonomy, mastery) vs. game mechamics and dynamics. An insightful article on motivation. The conclusion makes a point for successful gamification.

It Is Not About the Gadgets - Why Every Teacher Should Have to Integrate Tech Into Their Classroom

It Is Not About the Gadgets - Why Every Teacher Should Have to Integrate Tech Into Their Classroom | EDTECH | Scoop.it

"I once sat on an interview committee in which the candidate proudly proclaimed that to integrate technology her students would use word processors and publish their work in a monthly book.  My toes instantly curled.  It wasn’t so much that she had used the words “word processor” but rather that she thought tech integration meant to have students type on a computer and then publish their work, that that would make them ready for this century of jobs.  So a couple of things come to mind whenever we discuss tech integration in schools."

A Great Presentation On The Use of iPad for Digital Storytelling ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | EDTECH | Scoop.it

"The presentation below is created by Karen Bosh who is a K - 8 Technology Instructor. Karen provided some key ideas and app suggestions for teachers on how to use iPad for digital storytelling. Some of the apps she suggested are not free. She has also corroborated her ideas with a set of students  project examples involving the use of iPad for digital storytelling. The presentation is a little bit long ( contains 129 slides) but is really worth your time. Have a look and share with your colleagues."

The 6 types of Questions your Students Need to Know about | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | EDTECH | Scoop.it

Learning is all about asking questions and finding answers to them. An inquisitive mind is one that goes beyond the status quo and probes deep below surface meanings. To foster such kind of  thinking inside our classroom requires some hard work and a serious investment in time and efforts. We, as teachers and educators, need to prepare the right environment where inquisitive minds can nourish and grow. We need to water this environment with a culture of asking questions.
