STEM vs. STEAM: Do the Arts Belong? ~ Education Week TEACHER

STEM vs. STEAM: Do the Arts Belong? ~ Education Week TEACHER | Education | Scoop.it

by Anne Jolly

description by MiddleWeb SmartBrief

 

"Educators wanting to add art into their science, technology, engineering and math lessons should consider using it in real-world applications to maintain the advantages of STEM learning, middle-school STEM curriculum designer Anne Jolly writes. She suggests using applied art as part of product or logo design, performance or persuasive writing to communicate project purpose, or creative, artistic methods for brainstorming project ideas. "

Three iPad Apps for Creating Multimedia eBooks - iPad Apps for School | Education | Scoop.it
One of my favorite things about iPads and the web in general is the ease with which anyone can create a multimedia product. Teachers can create and organize multimedia reference materials for students and students can create multimedia products to show off their ideas. The following three iPad apps allow you and your students to create multimedia ebooks.

Ideas for Using iPads for Digital Storytelling - MindShift

Ideas for Using iPads for Digital Storytelling - MindShift | Education | Scoop.it

"The following is the first of a series of excerpts from Glickman’s book iPad in Education for Dummies.

 

The digital aspect of storytelling raises the art to a new level of experience. The emergence of technology and digital media has resulted in some significant departures from the traditional role of storytelling in education: Stories have become media-rich experiences. Billions of mobile devices are in the hands of people worldwide, and an ever-increasing percentage of those devices contain video cameras, still cameras, and microphones. Whenever anything of personal significance happens, it can be captured and chronicled in digital media that we edit, process, and publish. Within minutes, that moment is available to friends and family around the world. Media has become the language of today."

We also believe institutions will continue to seek ways to move away from siloed technology strategies and spending plans, create appropriate enterprise-based approaches and seek the innovative cloud-based solutions that will allow them to accelerate their transformation — but this process will take time.

5 Creative Ways to Help Students With ADHD Thrive in the Classroom | Edudemic

5 Creative Ways to Help Students With ADHD Thrive in the Classroom | Edudemic | Education | Scoop.it

"Recently, the NY Times ran an excellent article entitled: A Natural Fix for ADHD. In this piece, Dr. Richard Friedman, Professor of Clinical Psychiatry and Director of the Psychopharmacology Clinic at Weill Cornell Physicians, explores the neuroscience behind ADHD (Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder). In so doing, Friedman attempts to reframe our understanding of just what ADHD is, and how much more nuanced our approaches for treating it need to be."

This post from Edudemic explores ADHD in five areas:

* ADHD has long been a controversial topic

* The neuroscience behind ADHD

* When ADHD was an evolutionary advantage

* 5 Creative Approached

   - Get hands on

   - Vary the routine

   - Incorporate movement into your lesson plans

   - Teach mindfulness

   - Create a tutoring program

Many of us have students with ADHD in our classrooms, and we know that day to day the behavior changes. This post provides some background information that was certainly new to me as well as some ideas you might incorporate into lessons that may help all your students, not only those with ADHD. I would also recommend reading the NY Times article referenced above. It will provide additional information.

A great, short article that exemplifies how purposeful, real-world projects are supported by tech (rather than driven by tech).

 

The author, Suzie Boss, also co-wrote a book for ISTE on Reinventing Project-Based Learning: Your Field Guide to Real-World Projects in the Digital Age. Check out the blog for updates, resources, and a link to the book:

Lauren Jackson's curator insight, February 19, 2014 3:50 PM

Another article that provides explicitly the essentials for Project Based Learning. The Buck Institute focuses on PBL to produce 21st Century Skills. Incorporating technology is fundamental in PBL. What worries me, as a future educator, is the unknown. I want to fully prepare my students with the skills they need, but we are preparing them for an unknown future. For example, in elementary school my computer class focused on "words typed per minute." But now students need to know much more than that when it comes to technology. How can we prepare globally competent students when we don't know what the global sphere will look like in 2020 and beyond?

Robin Kinney's curator insight, February 19, 2014 5:12 PM

This picture truly says 1000 words, which is why I like it.  While reading an article, this one or another, is necessary to understanding what PBL is, this graphic is an excellent at-a-glance reminder.  I'd actually like to take this image, transform it into a trumpet flower, then slide the graphic into the front of my planning binder to act as a beautiful reminder of what I should imbed into my lessons.

Harry Greenhouse's curator insight, February 20, 2014 9:57 PM

This article by BIE shows the basics to project based learning. The article shows the major important factors that make project based learning possible and how to do them. Like we covered in class, PBL's need to be significant and relate-able so they are interesting as well as have a driving question that works as the thesis statement for the project.

Over the past few months, we’ve hosted three “Quality Conversations” on this blog. We’ve explored issues to keep in mind when selecting digital media for children, with the goal of advancing the discussion that began in 2012 at the Fred Forward Conference.

 

In each of the three conversations, we showed a video of a child using an app and asked readers to rate its quality. Readers were also encouraged to share their comments and the reasons behind their ratings.
