Google Gives Education A Push With Virtual Field Trips On Connected Classrooms

Google Gives Education A Push With Virtual Field Trips On Connected Classrooms | Educational Technology Resources for 21st century English Teachers in the Adult  Vocational Classroom | Scoop.it

I see great possibilities with this. Giving students a global view without them leaving the school campus. No unnecessary expenses for parents and think of the new friends they could meet. A child from a rural village can travel the world through Connected Classrooms.

The Difference Between Doing Projects Versus Learning Through Projects

The Difference Between Doing Projects Versus Learning Through Projects | Educational Technology Resources for 21st century English Teachers in the Adult  Vocational Classroom | Scoop.it

We’ve clarified the difference between projects and project-based learning before. Projects are about the product, while project-based learning is about the process.

 

Projects are generally teacher-directed, universal, and tangent to the learning, while project-based learning is student-centered, personal, and the learning pathway itself. Put simply, it is an approach to learning rather than something to complete.

What is it? Think of this as an online multimedia bulletin board. That means you can post messages, pictures, website links, documents, audio files, and videos on the virtual wall. These appear as message boxes that can be moved around the page. When you click on one of those items, they get larger so they are easier to read or see. The best part is, you can share it and have others add to it by posting their own items. This makes it a great place to collaborate and share.

The Paradigm Shift: 4 Goals Of 21st Century Learning

The Paradigm Shift: 4 Goals Of 21st Century Learning | Educational Technology Resources for 21st century English Teachers in the Adult  Vocational Classroom | Scoop.it

"As academic standards shift, technology evolves, and student habits change, schools are being forced to consider new ways of framing curriculum and engaging students in the classroom, and project-based learning is among the most successful and powerful of these possibilities.

 

As both a planning and a learning tool, project-based learning challenges teachers to make new decisions about how they plan student learning experiences, while simultaneously empowering students to take a more active role in the learning process."

 


Via John Evans, Karen Bonanno
Karen Taylor's insight:

American schools are way ahead of the crowd in terms of education reform. I'd like to see a similar paradigm shift in Jamaican classrooms. Empowering students to be active participants in their own learning is a winning model. TeachThought rocks!

Melissa Mackal's curator insight, November 3, 2013 9:07 PM

Schools and educators can't keep up. So many are still using technology tools like glorifed projectors instead of pushing the envelope and using tools to teach critical thinking.
