Audrey's curator insight, January 28, 2014 5:36 PM

It is important to hear from the learners how they are stimulated to absorb information. The earlier this is encouraged the greater the brain power, audrey@homeschoolsource.co.uk

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 28, 2014 6:07 PM

John Dewey called what motivates people to learn is "living motivation". We bring our stories and autobiographies to learning every day. We want to add to them in ways that help us construct a future of our choosing that fits within a community. It is about constantly transforming who we are.

Striking a Balance: Digital Tools and Distraction in School - Edutopia

Striking a Balance: Digital Tools and Distraction in School - Edutopia | Education and hope | Scoop.it

"This school year I joined the staff of a 1:1 high school here in Philadelphia. Students at the school have access to their own devices, which they take home with them. Although I've taught for many years in classrooms where each student had a school-issued device, the experience of my new students taking their devices home has forced me to reflect on the issue of distraction. How do we teach students to integrate technology into their schoolwork and their learning while also making sure that they're staying focused on the task at hand?"

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Education and hope | Scoop.it

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.

"Mapping for Change, a London-based social enterprise founded by Muki Haklay, a professor of geographic information science, and Chris Church, a veteran environmental campaigner, which uses online maps as tools for communication and action on sustainable development. Its director, Louise Francis – a scientist who trained in molecular systematics – explained how the organisation developed a methodology for collecting noise measurements with cheap, hand-held devices that the residents of Pepys Housing Estate in Deptford could use to create an online map of noise pollution in the area, as part of their campaign against an unpopular local scrapyard.
