Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 7, 2015 7:44 AM

Beth Dichter's insight:

ProCon is one of my favorite websites. The mission of the site is to promote 'critical thinking, education, and informed citizenship by presenting controversial issues in a straightforward, nonpartisian, primarily pro-con format." There are 52 controversial topics that are available, and they have just released 20 lesson plans. Seventeen of the lesson plans are skill- based and three are content-based. The lesson plans are geared to learners in grades 5 - 12. Below is a list of two skill-based lessons and two content-based lesson, along with the grade levels.

Skill-Based (material quoted from site):

* Critical Thinking Quotes - Engage students in a metacognition exercise about critical thinking and also practice research and informational writing skills using ProCon.org's collection of critical thinking quotes. Grades 9 -12.

* Main Ideas of Visual References - Use charts and graphs on ProCon.org to engage students in a visual literacy exercise. Grades 6 - 8.

Content-Based

* Exploring Controversial Issues in Literature - To introduce a novel, use ProCon.org to help students build background knowledge and examine the novel’s controversial issue(s). Grades 5 - 10.

* Drug Ads Over Time: Analyzing Historical Images - Use ProCon.org's Gallery of Drug Ads to give students an opportunity to practice ad analysis and recognize how methods and messages have changed over time. Grades 5 - 10.

To access the 52 issues that have detailed information and provide references (and links) to the materials used click on the Home page and you will find topics in Education, Elections & Presidents, Health & Medicine, Media & Entertainment, Money & Business, Politics, Religion, Science & Technology, Sex & Gender, Sports, and World/International.

"Pad is a versatile tool that can be used like a Swiss Knife, you mention it and there is an app for it. One of the cognitive areas we can improve through the use of iPad is creativity. There are several excellent apps out there that are specifically designed to unleash learners creativity, drawing and painting tools are some of them. Having access to apps is one thing but using them effectively is another thing and that's where a  practical guide such as the one below comes in handy."

Blended Learning Implementation Guide

Blended learning means rethinking how class is structured, how time is used, and how limited resources are allocated. Compared to high-access environments, which simply provide devices for every student, blended learning includes an intentional shift to online instructional delivery for a portion of the day in order to boost learning and productivity. Productivity in this sense includes improvements to teacher access of data and its potential to inform instruction. Greater student productivity includes less time wasted on skills already mastered. Increased learning opportunities and improved student outcomes enhance overall system productivity.

We should have thought about restructing classrooms and the relationship we have with learning as teachers and learners.

robyns tut's curator insight, September 27, 2013 6:01 PM

The integration of technology and teaching is completely a good idea in my opinion. Especially given that we are living in a digital age, where learners have access to a lot of technical devices, which aim at improving and making life efficient. Thus by building curricula that welcomes the use of technology inside the classroom, will change the face of education - hopefully for the better. However my concern is the introduction of a 'customised' form of learning. Education is supposed to be unified experience where learners access information at the same time and at the same pace. It seems unfair that because there wil be fast learners in a class, that means they have to get to the end of the syllabus quicker than others. Everyone should receive attention in a similar manner, whether they understand the work or not. Teaching should not favour one person over the other.
