Kathleen Cercone's curator insight, September 5, 2013 7:47 PM

Nothing can replace the physical presence of a teacher. But with so much technology available these days, some teachers and professors are choosing a different way to structure their classes by flipping them.


Barbara Macfarlan's curator insight, September 6, 2013 6:28 PM
There's always something new to learn for all of us and these tools can make this easier for teachers and students alike. Flipping the classroom is not new anymore so it could be time for the students to start generating the content and learning for the class. These iPad apps can make it easier to empower students to take an active roll in their learning. Create a class YouTube channel where they can upload and publish their presentations so that the content they create can be shared and reviewed by their peers.

Google seeks to marry desktop and cloud with new Chrome apps

Google seeks to marry desktop and cloud with new Chrome apps | ANALYZING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it

Google has wheeled out a new type of application for its Chrome browser that according to the company combines the best of desktop and cloud software.

Equating them to tablet- and smartphone-like apps but for desktops and laptops, Google said on Thursday that they mix "the speed, security and flexibility" of the Web with the "functionality" of software installed on devices.

"These apps are more powerful than before, and can help you get work done, play games in full-screen and create cool content all from the web,"wrote Google engineering director Erik Kay in a blog post.

An initial set of this new type of app is live now in the Chrome Web Store for Chrome OS and Windows computers. They'll be available for MacOS and Linux "soon."

The 21st-Century Digital Learner

The 21st-Century Digital Learner | ANALYZING EDUCATIONAL TECHNOLOGY | Scoop.it

After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students. The tradition in education has been not to ask the students what they think or want, but rather for adult educators to design the system and curriculum by themselves, using their "superior" knowledge and experience.

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 24, 2013 5:27 PM

Just as speaking is the outcome of listening, so writing is the outcome of reading, not the other way round. Listening to the student should also include "listening" to their writing. ie., analyse what they are saying and how they are doing it.  When students evaluate their own work, the teacher should listen and guide them to ways of improving it, whether it be punctuation, paragraphing, spelling, or word or subject knowledge.  This is how we bring students on board and empower them to learn. 

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 31, 2013 4:49 PM

Listening to students has two aspects; listening to what they say orally, and 'listening' to their writing which is only another way of talking, only through a code. Just as learning to speak is tied closely to listening to what is said and being exposed to words that help one to think better, so writing is the same  and relies on reading "or listening" to what others say and how they say it to express clear meaning. The two subjects, reading and writing, are closlely intertwined yet we compartmentalize them in the literacy curriculum. An example of adults thinking they know what is best for children.
