A Must See Chart on SAMR Model and iPad Teaching ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Must See Chart on SAMR Model and iPad Teaching ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | education k-12 | Scoop.it
"Technology integration in instruction is a process that starts with setting out clearly defined objectives and ends with assessing learning outcomes against these objectives, and all along the way several tools and strategies are employed to attend to the overall performance of this process. Hence, the first question teachers need to ponder when thinking about using technology in class is not what kind of technology to use but what do they want to achieve behind using this technology? On a deeper level, they need to find answers to questions such as: Does this technology constitute a a good addition to the learning task ? Can the same learning task be performed without using technology? These and several other questions should come to the forefront when you start planning a technology-based learning activity. "

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman

Six Leadership Styles by Daniel Goleman | education k-12 | Scoop.it

Daniel Goleman, in his article “Leadership That Gets Results”, has identified six different leadership styles, and he believes that good leaders will adopt one of these six styles to meet the needs of different situations.

 

None of the six leadership styles by Daniel Goleman are right or wrong – each may be appropriate depending on the specific context. Whilst one of the more empathetic styles is most likely to be needed to build long-term commitment, there will be occasions when a commanding style may need to be called upon, for example, when a rapid and decisive response is required.

Augmented reality: a peek into the future of education | Tutorhub Blog | education k-12 | Scoop.it
"“Augmented reality, what the heck is that?” Yep, I had the same reaction when I first heard about Augmented Reality (AR) and how it was effecting education. The purpose of this blog post is to put you in the picture about what AR is, how it’s already impacting the way that we learn. Over the past decade, technology has well and truly entered the classroom, from interactive white boards and brand spanking new pc’s. But during this time students have powered ahead in their use of technology, becoming what some people call ‘Digital Natives‘ – a fully formed group of people for whom technology isn’t new, confusing and maybe to be feared but to be embraced fully into their daily lives. In many respects students have left classroom technology well in their wake."

"If you are a primary class mathematics teacher you know that putting the foundation of understanding in place for new mathematics principles can be challenging. This often involves building on concepts like number systems and arithmetic basics while incorporating new ideas.

5 Traits of a Micromanager (and How to Fix Them)

5 Traits of a Micromanager (and How to Fix Them) | education k-12 | Scoop.it

Everyone agrees that micromanagement is a bad thing, but not everyone knows how to identify and correct it.


In my experience, micromanagement manifests itself in the following five avoidable behaviors:

1. Measuring too many things.

The advantage of technology is that you can measure your business more accurately.  The disadvantage is that technology makes it too easy to measure too much.  Measuring so much that it's not clear what the data really means is classic micromanagement.

What to do instead: For every job, select one or two metrics that define success for that job. Ignore everything else.

The 8 Key Elements Of Digital Literacy - Edudemic

The 8 Key Elements Of Digital Literacy - Edudemic | education k-12 | Scoop.it
Many teachers have added ‘digital literacy’ as number four on the list of literacies their students should have (or be working towards, in most cases). Reading, writing, and math are now followed by digital literacy. Obviously, depending on the grade level you teach, your students will have different abilities in each of the four areas, so your expectations and your teaching approach may differ quite noticeably from your colleagues. But the nagging question still remains for many teachers – what exactly is digital literacy?

A handy chart featuring New Learners vs New Teachers

A handy chart featuring New Learners vs New Teachers | education k-12 | Scoop.it
I am actually reading a book by Kalantzis Mary and Bill Cope entitled "Literacies". In this wonderful work, the authors take you into an eventful journey back into the history of literacy and guide you through the major changes that marked the use of literacy in each era and how teaching pedagogy has been shaped by the meaning that literacy takes in each of these eras. The book also outlines four major approaches to literacy : Didactic literacy , authentic literacy, functional literacy, and critical literacy. Each of these approaches has its own ramifications in education and pedagogy. I will write more in details about these four types of approaches in an article to be published in the few coming weeks. As I was reading "Literacies" I came across this wonderful chart that captures the essence of the thinking and values that lie behind the new assigned roles of teachers and student. These roles are informed by the new conceptions of literacies which regard learning and teaching as a collaborative process of meaning making.

Once Upon a Device: 20 Reading Activities & Apps : Teacher Reboot Camp

Once Upon a Device: 20 Reading Activities & Apps : Teacher Reboot Camp | education k-12 | Scoop.it

"Epiphany is one of my favorite words. I remember discovering the word in high school and thinking that finally I had the right word to describe the “aha” moments I would get after reading a good book. I want my learners to have several epiphanies throughout their learning journeys. I want them to make connections to what they read and personalize the content.

 

Often, teachers have to teach books that are much older than the kids, written in archaic language, and that take place in countries and imaginary worlds our learners have no experience with. I think activities have to help learners visualize and experience this world to get a better understanding of the mindset of the characters. Various free apps provide multimedia rich reading experiences and story creation. Additionally, many of these apps inspire creativity, support play, and engage learners of all ages. I decided to create my first Piktochart of some of these lesson ideas I am sharing in a webinar on Saturday about Engaging Readers with iPads. Click on the Apple to go to a free IOS app that will help you accomplish the activity. Click on the blue arrow to see Android apps that should accomplish the task."
