Turn STEM to STEAM: Why Science Needs the Arts

Turn STEM to STEAM: Why Science Needs the Arts | Education | Scoop.it
I'm sure many people in the audience were wondering why CCA, a school of the arts, chose a scientist for this honor. What could a world-renowned physicist say that would resonate with a group of artists, architects, designers, curators, and writers?

Anna Hu 's curator insight, October 22, 2013 10:12 AM

Research shows that school-aged children are especially apt to emulate the attitudes and behaviors of the same-sex parent—a source of concern if we want to improve girls’ still-lagging performance in traditionally male-dominated fields like science and mathematics. If mom hates math, a young girl may reason, it’s O.K. for me to dislike it too.

Collective Intelligence: has the golden age of the 'citizen scientist' finally arrived? | 21.10.2013 | Education | Scoop.it
After years of skepticism about the contribution ordinary people can make to scientific research, the latest thinking is citizen scientists do good science. But can it be trusted?

MILLENNIAL SHORTCUTS

MILLENNIAL SHORTCUTS | Education | Scoop.it
Millennials have a reputation for being impatient and wanting everything fast. “Millennials are always seeking instant gratification” as the stereotype goes. There is some validity to this belief and the truth is, there is nothing wrong with wanting accomplishments or success quickly. Having a desire to succeed quickly can be leveraged as an asset if properly channeled.

Free Technology for Teachers: AirDrop & iPads - One Touch Collaboration | Education | Scoop.it
"One of the most exciting new features available with iOS7 is the ability to AirDrop files from one iPad to another, or even from one iPad to many - instantly. While sharing options such as email, Google Drive, Chirp, and Bump already exist, AirDrop makes the process easier and faster because the sharing can take place with or without a Wi-Fi connection and from any app that supports the exporting of files with the traditional iPad action or sharing button (arrow pointing up from a small box on ios7).

A Teach for America Alum On How Testing Is Hurting Our Kids

A Teach for America Alum On How Testing Is Hurting Our Kids | Education | Scoop.it
"As a Teach For America 2011 corps member, I spent the last two years teaching 5th grade at a charter school in Harlem. While two years is not a lifetime in teaching, I’ve observed two constants: teachers and students bravely struggling against daunting odds; and a national obsession with standardized testing that is ruining public education. Our country is in the process of implementing a new national curriculum called the Common Core Standards. This implementation will cost us billions of dollars. California taxpayers alone will shell out over $1 billion to bring the Common Core to their state. The result of New York adopting the Common Core in 2010 was more practice tests and test prep for a harder test. All this testing is serving to squash creativity and the excitement of learning. We are ignoring children’s strengths, and spending precious time trying to ensure they can improve their weaknesses just enough to pass the test. It’s incredibly difficult to put out a child’s curiosity, yet we’ve done exactly that. Testing preoccupation has led to the arts, PE, history, and even sciences being downgraded—and replaced by test prep." | By Jonathan Sheehan

How To: Screen Record Your iPad - The Tech Savvy Educator

How To: Screen Record Your iPad - The Tech Savvy Educator | Education | Scoop.it
"I support the technological efforts of a few hundred teachers and thousands of students within my school district. I know there are others that perform roughly the same function as I do around Michigan, and the United States. I figured there might be a few more of us out there trying to provide support for iPads and other iOS devices. I’ve been creating “how to” videos for iPads every week since the start of this school year, and I though it might be a good idea to create a how to video of how I’m actually making the iPad videos."
