What Happens When Students Use Technology Better Than Teachers? - TeachThought

What Happens When Students Use Technology Better Than Teachers? - TeachThought | Educated | Scoop.it

"You know the content, you understand pedagogy, and you can navigate the minefield of diplomacy when dealing with parents, students, administrators, literacy coaches, and the local news station when they want to see the iPads glow on the students faces.

You know how to manage and coddle, inspire and organize, assess and deliver content.

But the technology is different. That part you do okay with, but, truth be told, the students are geniuses with technology. Born hackers. And of course they are, you tell yourself.

They’re digital natives."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, February 19, 2014 8:12 PM

I think, to some extent, this sometimes overstated. There are students who won''t  listen for a variety of reasons. That has always been the case. I found that most students are willing to learn. I am sitting in a university library with some digital natives. Most of them are here to learn and it shows.

Flipping the Classroom for Students With Learning Disabilities

No More Digitally Challenged Liberal-Arts Majors

No More Digitally Challenged Liberal-Arts Majors | Educated | Scoop.it
How to give B.A.'s in arts and humanities more career options without abandoning the life of the mind.

 

Too many career-services offices seem to still see the primary objective of arts and humanities majors as graduate school, and do not give enough thought to their other options. Those offices focus their energies on students with degrees that are more easily marketed to potential employers. Professors want to help, of course, but most do not have recent experience outside of academe, and, just as important, they generally do not have nonacademic networks that can help undergraduates get job interviews. Some faculty members have experiences or political convictions that cause them to talk about the "corporate world" in negative terms.

And, of course, many arts and humanities departments rate their success on the basis of graduate-school placements, not on their ability to help B.A. students find good positions immediately after graduation. We celebrate the graduates who seem most like ourselves—the ones who set out to become academics—and we don't talk much about what happens to those graduates after they've earned their Ph.D.'s. Without that conversation, we ill serve many of our students, and we undercut the impact that our fields could have beyond academe.

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"

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."

"Polls continually reveal that employers are more interested in what you can do over what you studied and traditional resumes are slowly giving way to digital portfolios as the primary gauge of your employability. A portfolio is both a container and a presentation platform for your best work - whether that be written pieces, photography, videos, presentations, performances or anything else. There's no better place than school to start developing that portfolio and creating a system that enables students to edit and share digital portfolios should be high on your priority list."

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.
