Neat infographic on evaluation of web resources.

Tina Jameson's curator insight, October 15, 2015 10:04 PM

So much information and so little time!  This infographic and webpage provide clear guidance that teachers can use to help their students be more selective about the sources they choose to use.  

ICTE Solutions Australia's curator insight, December 28, 2015 11:43 PM

In an ICT integrated society, it is important that people are information literate. That means being able to search for and analyse information for their benefits. As websites on the Internet become more popular teachers need to teach their students the right skills and knowledge so that their students are able to become information literate. Any guide therefore, that will assist teachers in doing so is worth using as a resource as reference for both teachers and students to use.

Writing for a purpose with the iPad and QR Codes- March 2014 Blog Post

Writing for a purpose with the iPad and QR Codes- March 2014 Blog Post | Education | Scoop.it

Last week during World Book Day, my school had a Dr Seuss themed week. As I teach each class ICT during the one day, I decided to develop pupils awareness of their audience during a short book review activity. I told the pupils that not only would their class teacher be reading their book reviews but the rest of the school and parents would be listening to them. After a few blank faces glared back at me, I explained that their reviews had to be recorded into their iPads and could not be longer than 30 seconds. We used Croak It app to record the reviews (it limits the recordings to 30 seconds) and then shares that recording as a web-link. These links were then put into the QR code creator app, printed and put with the front covers of the books. If you want to record longer than 30 seconds and have images displayed while you listen to them then you could use Shadow Puppets which also creates a web-link or AudioBoo which makes a QR code for you. If you want pupils to attach a GarageBand song to a QR code then you can save the song into something like box.com app using the open in tool and create a web link from there. 
We then displayed the finished front covers around the school, in the weekly newsletter and library.

We have come to a point in the education technology journey where it seems rather dull to still be asking if the iPad is the right device for the classroom. The answer, in case you’ve missed the last few years of debate is that it is a great option, but this is not universally accepted …

This article makes the oft acknowledged, (but too rarely acted upon), need for teacher professional development when looking to integrate technology in the classroom. Better still it makes the point that such PD needs to be personalised and enabled over an extended period of time rather than the one-off catch-all too often provided.

We can update it, or make it a wiki to crowdsource the process, or you can add suggestions in the comments below.

The feedback point is interesting. It is about information given to students relative to their learning goals. Feedback also means feedback for the teacher. What do we mean by student goals? What does this mean in relationship to curricula-as-plans. It suggests that teaching and learning are part of complex conversations (Pinar) and that the curricula-as-lived (Aoki) are important considerations.
