Education technology is spreading fast, but there’s no recipe for success

Education technology is spreading fast, but there’s no recipe for success | Education Technologies | Scoop.it | Scoop.it
This article was written by Nichole Dobo Many people are seeking the “secret sauce” for digital learning. As educators expand the use of education technology, they often face a tricky balance. These tools offer the possibility for innovation – trying something new in a quest to improve teaching and learning. But technology isn’t cheap, and the risk of failure looms. To assure success, many educators try to find and follow a recipe for digital learning. But many crucial ingredients can’t be found in a case study about “best practices,” said Julie Evans, the CEO of Project Tomorrow, a nonprofit organization that advocates …

Like other aspects of teaching, how teachers and students use computers, software, and social media is a broad conversation. We use words like education and technology as if they mean something they do not, school and digital tools respectively.

To educate means to lead etymologically. That means teaching is leading and helping students figure out what is appropriate use of tools. Technology is forming wisdom over time so the craftsperson (teacher) can have a conversation with, about, and through their tools. They grow to understand how tools limit and expand their teaching.

Today’s global employers are searching for employees that have specific skills. Those skills may not be the same needed in 10 years though. In 2009, the US Department of Labor estimated 65% of today’s school children would eventually be employed in jobs that have yet to be created. The number is far higher today. The influx of technology is what has changed the shape of education forever. For this reason, schools must create opportunities for students to engage in higher level thinking skills and experience 21st century skills while using technology.

Una de las virtudes de Internet consiste en haberse convertido en un inmenso repositorio de recursos a los que accedemos con gran facilidad. Esas dos características: gigantesco repositorio y facilidad de uso nos permiten encontrar todo tipo de recursos que podemos utilizar en nuestra actividad docente. Pero no es todo tan sencillo como parece. Primero tenemos que solucionar la dificultad de encontrar aquello que necesitamos perdidos en una enorme red de páginas y recursos. Por otra parte localizar un recurso en la web no implica que podamos utilizarlo como queramos. A menudo sólo podremos acceder a él para visualizarlo en la página en la que está alojado porque tiene derechos de autor que lo protegen quedando sólo como recurso la posibilidad de enlazarlo o incrustarlo en nuestro sitio web si el objeto encontrado proporciona código para ello.

15 free games that will help you learn how to code | Education Technologies | Scoop.it | Scoop.it


"Online learning has come a long way in the last few years.Flickr/Laurie Sullivan

When I started learning to code, the options were limited—lots of books (not even e-books), some very basic online tutorials, and a whole lot of experimentation.

Online learning has come a long way in the last few years. There are interactive courses, tons of online tutorials, and one of my personal favorite ways to practice coding: games.

While a game alone probably isn’t going to teach you everything you need to know about coding, it can be a really incredible way to practice the skills you’re learning. It makes practice fun. And if you’re anything like me, you might suddenly realize you’ve spent the last four hours reinforcing your coding skills without even realizing it.

I’ve tried out some of the most entertaining and useful games for learning to code. Check out my favorites below. "

6 Domains Of Cognition: The TeachThought Learning Taxonomy

6 Domains Of Cognition: The TeachThought Learning Taxonomy | Education Technologies | Scoop.it | Scoop.it
How can you tell if a student really understands something?

They learn early on to fake understanding exceptionally well, and even the best assessment leaves something on the table. (In truth, a big portion of the time students simply don’t know what they don’t know.)

The idea of understanding is, of course, at the heart of all learning, and solving it as a puzzle is one of the three pillars of formal learning environments and education.

That said, even the best online programs – like their traditional campus counterparts – have some poor professors. And it can be trickier to identify those instructors in an online course until it’s too late to switch.

There are many reputable and respectable organizations whose life’s work is to develop digital citizenship resources to instill its values in educators and students worldwide. We at the Global Digital Citizen Foundation are proud to be among them. We like to use 6 guidelines for practicing digital citizenship: Respect for self: Having respect for yourself is about being aware of how you portray yourself with your online persona. In doing so, you will set a positive example for others to follow. Responsibility for self: We must be mindful to avoid behavior that puts us at risk, both online and offline. Acting responsibly encourages exemplary personal governance as a habit of mind and adds to our sense of self-worth and self-esteem. Respect for others: Respecting others teaches us the value of being constructive and friendly online. It’s about modeling behavior that focuses on civility and constructive thinking in the face of conflict. Responsibility for others: Don’t be afraid to report abusive and inappropriate behavior towards others. This is how we come to see the value in making others feel protected and valued themselves. Respect for property: Asking permission to share another’s intellectual properties is an important practice. Those who devote their time to creativity in the service of others deserve no less. Learn the rules of “fair use” and copyright laws, and how they apply to sourcing and using online information. Responsibility for property: Treating our property and others’ with care and respect, including intellectual properties, is vital to preserving our digital and global communities. Remember that any kind of digital piracy is still theft and is not a victimless crime. Make a choice to act with integrity and to value what we use or own.

Great tool to use in the classroom to present lessons and concepts to students. Prezi can be used by students to present ideas, thoughts and beliefs in a digital space, where it can be shared with other students and the wider community. When this is done by the students, it is reflective of the redefinition as per the SAMR Model. This is because students are using new media and places to store their work, and then also collaborating with their fellow students, but also other stakeholders in education.

This week I had the chance to lead a virtual reality lesson with a group of second graders. It was absolutely amazing to see the students spinning around and looking side-to-side as they explored the top of a mountain and the bottom of the ocean. On this 360 Thursday I wanted to share some of my absolute favorite resources for virtual reality in education. Whether you’re totally new to this concept or looking for new educational VR apps to add to your toolkit, there are lots to choose from! Don’t worry, I’ll tell the whole story of my second grade virtual reality exploration in a June post (sign up here to get it in your inbox). And if you want an e-Book for summer reading you can grab my free getting started guide for virtual reality in education by clicking here.
The list below includes virtual reality apps for mobile devices and websites that give you quick access to virtual reality videos for your classroom. Of course, having a headset like the low-cost Google Cardboard is great but most of these virtual reality in the classroom resources work on web-browsers too. If you have a favorite you think I should add to the list, make sure to leave a comment at the bottom of this post!

One challenge facing educational start-ups is that many technologists don’t have real world teaching experience or have been out of the school system for so long that they’re out of touch with the classroom experience. And teachers who may have dynamic ideas for software or apps in education don’t have the technical know-how, access to investment, or experience starting a company from scratch.
