Make It! (13 iPad Apps for Creative Teachers and Students) | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

"In what follows, I'd like to offer you a mixed lucky-packet of apps I have discovered since. What melts the whole sticky mass together is that most of them are focused on creative content generation. And they're fun and easy to use. And highly lickable. I love using these apps and recommend all of them. As always, though, please check out the pricing, reviews and ratings on the app store and decide for yourself before you download them."

What If We Flipped Online Learning? - Edudemic

What If We Flipped Online Learning? - Edudemic | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

In short, flipped online learning would involve a larger focus on the student producing the learning materials and having an online instructor be more of a ‘guide on the side’ as it were. Rather than watching videos and taking a quiz, you’d have a robust discussion, have students create projects to share with classmates, and generate more discussion out of that.

David Donat's curator insight, July 24, 2013 3:26 PM

Una bona presentació de la "Flipped Classroom": no és un mètode pedagògic, sinó una manera més d'enfocar l'aprenentatge, que pot anar bé en algunes ocasions i que en d'altres no tant. Es pot plantejar com un recurs més, combinable amb qualsevol altre.

La meva opinió és que els alumnes són tan diversos que no hi ha cap metodologia "ideal". Cadascun necessitarà eines i processos diferents i per tant, quantes més dinàmiques i metodologies s'utilitzin (i més flexibles siguin) millor s'atendrà a cadascun d'ells. No cal dir que amb ratios de més de 30 adolescents per aula tampoc es poden fer miracles.

digitalsandbox: Infusing 21st Century Skills Into Authentic Learning | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

Due to the advancement of new technologies 21st Century educators will soon be exploring ways to personalize education that promote student center learning formats. These new personal learning environments are not necessarily about the incorporation of technology into a daily lesson but more about teaching students how to collaborate, aggregate and create content into repositories of knowledge. To integrate technology means that teachers must have a deep understanding on how accessing information and creating content is inclusive with digital tools.

iPads: From Pedagogical Crutch to Education Innovation | Educational Technology | Scoop.it

For students who struggle with output, the option now exists to record ideas directly "onto a page." Similarly, teachers can leave audio feedback for students who benefit from hearing input multiple times. With the built-in camera, students can quickly snap pictures of class notes on a board, or record a quick video of teacher instruction. Leveraging just these few features has the potential to personalize learning and differentiate instruction where it might otherwise be impossible.
