Why We Changed Our Model of the “8 Essential Elements of PBL” | Blog | Project Based Learning | BIE

Why We Changed Our Model of the “8 Essential Elements of PBL” | Blog | Project Based Learning | BIE | eLearning | Scoop.it
BIE’s Essential Project Design Elements contain two new items, both of which are familiar to those who know PBL. One is “authenticity,” which has to do with how real-world the project is. The other is “reflection,” which we have previously coupled with “revision” but now stands on its own; students should reflect on what they’re learning, how they’re learning, and what they have accomplished in a project.

PicCollage for Kids - Create Multimedia Collages - iPad Apps for School

PicCollage for Kids - Create Multimedia Collages - iPad Apps for School | eLearning | Scoop.it
PicCollage is one of my favorite apps for creating multimedia collages on my iPad. Creating those collages is a great way to visually summarize a trip, to tell a story, or showcase the highlights of research. I’ve shown PicCollage to hundreds of teachers over the last couple of years. The only complaint I’ve heard about it is that there is a public gallery of collages. I just discovered this morning that PicCollage for Kids removes that gallery. PicCollage for Kids also removes all social media connections to the app. Students do not need to create accounts in order to use PicCollage for Kids.

Schools that have many Ipads need to learn how to teach kids about great apps.  This looks like a good one.

Coding: 123...Doodle! #SketchNoting

Coding: 123...Doodle! #SketchNoting | eLearning | Scoop.it
 I have been exploring sketch-noting and brain-doodling lately and thought it would be a great vehicle my students to think, process, and organize information.  I started off with a class discussion and asking my students what they find challenging about note-taking.  Many of them shared that they found it hard to keep up with the speaker, and others said that they sometimes wrote so furiously that they couldn't understand their own handwriting when it came time to study for the tests.  Others shared how they found it difficult to make sense of their notes.  Sketch-noting seemed a great way to address some of these issues.  Introducing it through sample images of sketchnoting from Google images and sites like Sketchnote Army was a great way to start.  For more tutorials and ideas of places to start with doodling, I went to Brain Doodles.

What's The Value Of Appsmashing? - Musings From The Island

What's The Value Of Appsmashing? - Musings From The Island | eLearning | Scoop.it
The key to a great appsmash is not the number of apps that you manage to smash together into a final product but the pedagogical thought behind the smash itself. Ask  yourself why are we completing this activity? What is the educational purpose of it? If your answers are simply the students will enjoy it or it will greatly enhance collaboration in my class I would ask you to have a rethink.   Many multi app appsmashes are very complex, way too complex in my humble opinion.  In schools we are time poor and an incredibly complicated appsmash can suck hours out of your teaching time. For me, the best appsmashes are those with learning at their heart and by learning I mean intrinsically linked to that which you are teaching and learning in class.

Learning to Code Becomes Learning to Learn - Edutopia

Learning to Code Becomes Learning to Learn - Edutopia | eLearning | Scoop.it
Until recently, I was like Jane, but with technology. I used tech tools all day with little knowledge of their workings. And, despite my interactions with Jane, I had a typical fixed-mindset explanation for this: "I'm an English teacher. My brain doesn't work that way." What I was really saying was, "I forget how to be a beginner."

A year ago, though, I became a beginner, an apprentice, a struggling learner. I decided to learn how to code.

Immediately, the experience became less about designing websites and more about experiencing the growth mindset, improving confidence with technology, and learning that failure is part of the process.

5 Math Apps for Math Averse Students | Edudemic

5 Math Apps for Math Averse Students | Edudemic | eLearning | Scoop.it
Math is a core subject and one used in everyday life, especially throughout the K-12 years. Students who enjoy and generally perform well in math classes will have their choice of an amalgam of apps to aid them in both study and enjoyment. There are, however, a fair number of students who simply don’t like to do math at school and who certainly won’t easily be tempted to do extra math at home. Luckily, there are a series of apps available to help math averse students. Some of these are geared towards students who need visual stimulation such as colors, patterns, and graphics to remain engaged in general math concepts. Other students, those who are geared toward auditory stimulation, will be interested only if sound and music come into play. In addition to focusing on multiple communication preferences, some math apps disguise learning in the form of game play. Students who have fun while learning can greatly benefit from these math ‘games’, especially if they are in the younger grades.

"I enjoy discussing iPad and other edtech resources with my colleague and friend Sylvia Duckworth almost every week through Twitter. Sylvia is a leader in the French teaching community in Canada, and has created an enormous amount of resources for language teachers to use. I asked her if she wanted to collaborate on this post, and she quickly agreed to do so. Below is a list of iPad apps that we both use in our language classrooms. The ones marked with an * are the essential, must-have ones. We have divided the list into two categories: Content consumption apps and content creation apps."

Move over, Space Camp: Coding is quickly growing as a popular activity for kids, and not just for those who dream of being programmers when they grow up. The logical thinking required to code can help kids succeed in school and other day-to-day activities—it’s no wonder why big companies are getting behind the effort to help students learn the needed critical thinking skills. 

If you want to help them get started, there are a number of visual, kid-friendly apps that teach users how to build games and code other simple activities on their own.

Word Cloud App Smashing - Engage Their Minds | eLearning | Scoop.it
When I first learned about Word Clouds, for example, I thought they were fun but really couldn’t think of too many applications for their use.  Fortunately, I network with many other people who can think outside the cloud.

For example, someone tweeted the other day about using Word Clouds with Thinglink.  I wish I remember who.  Great idea!  If you are using iOS, you can use the ABCya Word Cloud app along with the Thinglink app.  On the web, there are plenty of word cloud generators such as Tagxedo and Wordle, and Thinglink has a web application as well.

Why do we stop children being playful learners and then worry about how we can make them creative?

Why do we stop children being playful learners and then worry about how we can make them creative? | eLearning | Scoop.it
Mitch Resnick in his article Lifelong Kindergarten concludes with the thought :“Instead of making kindergarten more like the rest of school, we need to make the rest of school – indeed, the rest of life – more like kindergarten.”This reflects the points I raised in my previous blog post about developing a playful mindset in students, (“Do we have the confidence to let students be playful learners?”) that the conditions that are naturally found in play are exactly the ones we are all trying so hard to create in the learning environments of our classrooms.


Why then is it that schools seem to try so hard to suppress students’ natural desire for play only to relabel those desires as creativity a few years latter and fret about students not being able to do them?"


Via John Evans
Linda Denty's insight:

This is so true.  It's a shame we are so intent on getting data, data, data at the cost of creativity which is hard to measure and quantify until it's not there anymore.
