Morgann Wilburn's curator insight, July 7, 2014 8:32 PM

Here is an example of Classroom Management Software happening inside of a classroom. The instructor is James Girling and he is sharing how his class at Bigwood School in Nottingham, uses the Classroom Management Software Impero inside his classroom. James speaks about how the software acts like an extra pair of eyes by making sure the students are getting the work done, using the computer safely, and using the computer properly. He says it is very easy to use. A student Enya likes how the software allows for the instructor to put pupil's work on the board, which allows for peer assessing. James likes how this component leads into class discussion about what they like and don't like, and whether the students are doing it right. The teachers, pupil, and engineers of the school who were able to experience this software agreed to the improvement of the learning experience of the entire class.

Survey: School web filtering impedes learning

Survey: School web filtering impedes learning | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"More and more students are bringing personal mobile devices to school, but a new survey from the American Association of School Librarians (AASL) finds that internet filtering often prevents students from taking advantage of learning’s social potential. School librarians report that web filtering programs have had varied effects in their schools and on school library programs. Fifty-two percent said internet filters have impeded student research when topics or keyword searches are filtered. Half said web filtering has decreased the number of potential distractions, while 42 percent said it discounts social aspects of learning."

Maximillian Danskin's curator insight, May 4, 2015 1:04 PM

the education system today is focused on equality. making sure all students get the same education.but this not what what is happening. every kid is different and processes and retains information in a unique way. the system is setting us up to be a cookie cutter businessman, and is not focusing on implementing different teaching styles based on the child's strengths and weakness to ensure they retain the information. standardized test only hinder the plausibility of student progression.

Dr. Deborah Brennan's curator insight, May 25, 2015 9:22 AM

There is so much wisdom in this list of education myths.  from Common Core, grades, to teacher evaluation the insights are right on point!  We are so wrapped in the high stakes assessment and bemoaning the state of current education that we sometimes don't look at our beliefs that are behind some of that thinking. parents and community members, as well as government decision makers have their historical experience in school as a reference point, combined with these myths, it is no wonder there is a lack of clarity around school reform and improvement.

IXL Mathematics | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

As an advocate of paperless classrooms, I recommend IXL Math as an alternative to handouts and textbooks. Not only does it offer grade specific practice lessons, but also has a strong management database that provides teachers with real-time assesment tools to monitor each students progress. It is a more learner-centered approach to computation as it provides students the ability to move at their own pace at school, or at home. Popular among educators and families, IXL provides unlimited questions in more than 2,000 topics.

Dr. Laura Sheneman's curator insight, June 2, 2015 9:14 AM

A reading transformation can occur in your school much like it has in my classroom, replacing fear and dread with excitement and self-expression. Students will read if they choose the books. They will write with voice and clarity if they have the ability to express their thoughts. They can change from reluctant to inspired readers if it happens on their own terms. All you have to do is flip the experience, turning the practice of reading on its head by making them the creators of their own learning.
