6 Ways To Support Students Without Internet Access At Home - TeachThought

6 Ways To Support Students Without Internet Access At Home - TeachThought | Educated | Scoop.it

"While some students enjoy unlimited access to the Internet and other digital technology, there are other students, just as capable and full of potential, who struggle to learn even the basics of computer use due to a lack of access. Our world heavily relies on Internet technology for everyday communication, education, and work. Over time, students without Internet access will face massive disadvantages, including:

    *Lack of basic research skills

    *Lack of networking skills

    *Inability or extreme difficulty in pursuing a degree in higher ed

    *Difficulty searching and applying for jobs

    *Insufficient qualifications for many jobs"

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Educated | Scoop.it

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers [http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2010/7/31/top-ten-social-media-competencies-for-teachers.html ]. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.

What 5 Tech Experts Expect in 2014

What 5 Tech Experts Expect in 2014 | Educated | Scoop.it
Some hot topics, they predict, are likely to emerge at the intersection of education and technology.


Education technology enjoyed a headline-grabbing year in 2013. Debate about the potential, and the limitations, of massive open online courses reached a fevered pitch. Technology-enabled, competency-based degrees got a green light from the U.S. Department of Education. And data analytics proved to be an increasingly important reference point in campus operations.

The momentum shows little sign of abating in 2014. New tools are shaping everything from in-classroom instruction to White House policy making. The Chronicle asked five education-technology experts to think about the year ahead and identify major themes at the intersection of education technology and higher education.

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 | Educated | 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."

The Walk places you at the scene of a bomb explosion in Inverness station, and you’re given a package that could save the world. To stay alive, you’ll need to walk the length of the UK. The Walk is more than just a great pedometer/step counter — it’s a way to turn walking into a journey, a challenge, and a rip-roaring adventure.  A perfect addition to any classroom or as motivation for an apathetic student cohort.

This could be nice to plan or summarise a story, for reading or listening comprehension with students. Or for reviewing the stages of a task, or process (perhaps a process, for passive grammar). In teacher training it could be an option for self-observation, reviewing the stages of a lesson and how it went.

10 Pros And Cons Of A Flipped Classroom

Via Seth Dixon

Seth Dixon's curator insight, December 13, 2013 9:21 PM

The Pros

1. Students have more control

2. It promotes student-centered learning and collaboration

3. Lessons and content are more accessible

4. Access = easier for parents to see what’s going on

5. It can be more efficient

The Cons

1. It can create or exacerbate a digital divide

2. It relies on preparation and trust

3. There is significant work on the front-end

4. Not naturally a test-prep form of learning

5. Time in front of screens–instead of people and places–is increased


Using social media or other digital tools is not for all teachers and nor is it for all classrooms.  Given your teaching style, the digital fluency of students and the technological support of your administration, you can then successful weigh the options that are available.
