Could This Be Your Classroom Of The Future? | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"We’ve been trying to figure out what the classroom of the future will look like for, well, years. But it’s been all discussion, analysis, and data. Lame, right? What we really need is a visualization that spells out exactly how a major tech company (Intel) thinks the classrooms of tomorrow could look."

Social and Emotional Learning: Measuring the Success of E-Learning | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"What is Social and Emotional Learning (SEL)? By definition, Social and Emotional Learning is “The process through which people gather and effectively apply the knowledge, attitudes and skills necessary to understand and manage emotions, set and achieve positive goals, feel and show empathy for others, establish and maintain positive relationships, and make responsible decisions.”


It is based on the concept that learning is maximized in an environment which is characterized by supportive relationships that make the process of learning challenging, engaging and meaningful."

3 Questions that Help You Find the Perfect Technology Tool

3 Questions that Help You Find the Perfect Technology Tool | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"You’re a great teacher. You have an idea and are enthusiastic about trying a new technology tool with your upcoming unit. You plan carefully, the excitement building as you begin to research which tool you might use, and it all fades away as you are completely overwhelmed with your countless possibilities. Finally you decide to just leave everything the way it is and walk away.


Scenarios like this play out on a day-to-day basis in classrooms. What to use and how to use technology tools sometimes overtakes the initial excitement and it becomes too overwhelming to choose. A teacher can easily sift through the tools out there with these easy reflection questions and find the perfect tool to enhance their instruction."

Failing Forward: 21 Ideas To Use It In Your Classroom

Failing Forward: 21 Ideas To Use It In Your Classroom | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"Failing Forward” is a relatively recent entry into our cultural lexicon–at least as far has headlines go anyway–that has utility for students and teachers.


Popularized from the book of the same name, the idea behind failing forward is to see failing as a part of success rather than its opposite. Provided we keep moving and pushing and trying and reflecting, failure should, assuming we’re thinking clearly, lead to progress, So rather than failing and falling back, we fail forward. Tidy little metaphor.


So what might this look like in your classroom?"

Monitoring student behavior on Snapchat 'next to impossible,' administrators say | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"Keeping an eye on students on Snapchat and other online platforms presents a “moving target” for colleges and universities, administrators say -- shut down one account, and another will appear in its place. 


To avoid wasting time on combing through the Internet for student code violators, some institutions are instead focusing their efforts on educating the campus about responsible social media use and giving students a say in how their institution should be portrayed online."

Turn tech PD into a casual trip to the CAFE with this new model | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"Casual, ongoing professional development on technology makes a difference at one district.


Every Wednesday from 2:45-6:45, the fresh aroma of “personalized” coffee choices from the Keurig fills the air and our teachers settle in to work individually or with their colleagues at the Technology CAFÉ. At the Carson City School District’s Professional Development Center, CAFÉ means more than just providing coffee and snacks: It refers to the ongoing, personalized professional development teachers need to transform their teaching and their students’ learning with technology."

EDTC@UTB's insight:

The EdTech faculty have been doing this for years. We get a lot of work done in our walks to and from the campus coffee shop.

"Social learning—everyone’s talking about it. And if everyone’s talking about it, that means it must be fun, right? Like a party or an ice cream social? Add some sprinkles, and all your employees will be running to this mandatory training session. While social learning can be a fun, less intense approach to corporate training, it’s a serious learning strategy that can have huge results."

Engaging Students: Online and Offline

Engaging Students: Online and Offline | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"Learning is inherently satisfying. All of us have experienced the joy of learning and discovery at some point in time in our life. Learning leads to better understanding, new knowledge, skills and expertise. Whether it is learning how to ride a bike, read a book, write code, or build something -- children are inherently excited about learning. They learn because they are engaged. And they are engaged because the experience itself is satisfying. Engaged students become passionate and determined learners. This is true for all students, from kindergarteners to college students."

Well to some extent that’s true, considering the omnipresent nature of these documents that haunt you everywhere. PDFs have almost become a standard for writing company announcements, policies, terms and conditions, how to’s, newsletters, training material and what not. While some PDFs may be short, quite many of them – such as those used for writing policies & procedures, or for training purposes may be mercilessly long."
