60 Things Students Can Create To Demonstrate What They Know - TeachThought

60 Things Students Can Create To Demonstrate What They Know - TeachThought | eLearning | Scoop.it
Nowadays, many educators use the same methods over and over again in their lessons for students to express themselves and demonstrate their new knowledge. Today’s students want to express themselves in a variety of different ways. They want their academic work to be relevant, engaging and fun.

Below is a diverse list adapted from resources found at fortheteachers.org of potential student products or activities learners can use to demonstrate their mastery of lesson content. The list also offers several digital tools for students to consider using in a technology-enriched learning environment.

The OECD report on students, computers and learning: have your say! | eLearning | Scoop.it

The OECD has recently published a report entitled "Students, Computers and Learning: Making the connection"(http://www.oecd.org/publications/students-computers-and-learning-9789264239555-en.htm). This report has caused quite a stir - both in popular media and in professional and academic circles. But what does it actually say? What are the conclusions we should draw from it? What are the consequences and implications we should expect?

The end of ‘just Google it’: Why students need to be digitally literate

The end of ‘just Google it’: Why students need to be digitally literate | eLearning | Scoop.it
With so much information readily available in a range of multimodal formats, from text to multimedia, apps and social networking, we need to blend technological learning and critical literacy together so that students can critically appraise the information that they are accessing. Teaching digital literacy is something that can be embedded into regular teaching in all subjects at all stages of education. To do that, it needs to be explicitly taught and reinforced by every teacher in every subject in a way that is appropriate for students.

Willem Kuypers's curator insight, October 12, 2015 12:20 PM

Voilà une des compétences du 21e siècle. D'abord les profs doivent être plus intelligents que de dire d'aller le chercher sur Google, et les étudiants doivent avoir quelques stratégies pour chercher de l'information sur Internet. Google en soi renvoie tout et n'importe quoi (en privilégiant son propre écosystème d'ailleurs).

Curatorially Yours's curator insight, October 15, 2015 6:07 PM

A terrific article that explores why digital literacy skills are so essential. Not just device proficiency! Not just effective search skills! Our students need to think critically about what they view - this requires explicit teaching.

Computers 'do not improve' pupil results, says OECD - BBC News

Computers 'do not improve' pupil results, says OECD - BBC News | eLearning | Scoop.it
Investing heavily in school computers and classroom technology does not improve pupils' performance, according to a global study from the OECD.
Linda Denty's insight:

As much as I love lots of new technology, I do think that we have rushed head-long into this new age just assuming it will make learning somehow magically better.  Good results come from great teachers who make connections with and understand the needs of their students and if this includes technology then all the better, but computers alone cannot improve results.

Donald Clark Plan B: 10 examples of how ‘DEVICE fetish’ is ruining EdTech | eLearning | Scoop.it

Turtle projects are infrastructure projects that improve bandwidth in schools, the Open University, Janet & SuperJanet, Wikipedia, Khan Academy, YouTube, MOOCs. Moodle… I could go on all day. None of these initiatives are device-focused. They focus on cognitive ergonomics not consumer electronics. Lesson here – stop the largely wasted research on device-based projects, the endless stream of apps and do not keep on taking (and buying) the tablets. Think about learning and learners not devices.

ICT Opportunities and Threats for Children

ICT Opportunities and Threats for Children | eLearning | Scoop.it
For many children around the world today there are no artificial boundaries between being ‘offline’ and ‘online’. The environments that children find themselves in are increasingly digital, as much of their socializing, learning, civic engagement and entertainment happens online. In many countries, children and young people are among the greatest users of this technology. Even in countries where overall internet penetration is low, it is much higher among the 15-24 age group.
