Why It's Time To Start Teaching Students How To Think - Edudemic

Why It's Time To Start Teaching Students How To Think - Edudemic | eLearning & Education | Scoop.it
As an elementary teacher, I can’t help but notice that children today want quick answers and do not take the time to think things through.

Kymberley Pelky's insight:

In an age where children expect everything to be instant, their responses become the same without taking time to process the information first.

Analysis and synthesis take time...and are critical to problem solving, as we all know. How to teach these higher level thinking processes is key to helping students become successful independent learners.

Presentation Rubric: Is your presentation ready for an A+? | eLearning & Education | Scoop.it

Most colleges and business schools use a Presentation Rubric to evaluate their students. Funny thing is, they’re not usually that open about sharing it with their students (as if that would do any harm!)

Well, we don’t believe in shutting down information. Quite the contrary: I think the best way to practice your speech is to know exactly what is being tested!

Draw.io is one of my favourite tools and the one I use most for creating graphics and infographics. As someone who doesn’t draw very well and has only limited design abilities it has really helped me out a number of times and enabled me to produce professional looking illustrations, product mockups and teaching materials.

21st Century Skills Definition

21st Century Skills Definition | eLearning & Education | Scoop.it
The term 21st century skills refers to a broad set of knowledge, skills, work habits, and character traits that are believed—by educators, school reformers, college professors, employers, and others—to be critically important to success in today’s world, particularly in collegiate programs and contemporary careers and workplaces. Generally speaking, 21st century skills can be applied in all …

Fascinating and useful developments, but this is worth looking at for the Dynavox Eyemax alone.  The ability to successfully communicate must lift a great burden off those unable to articulate or gesture their needs.

robyns tut's curator insight, September 14, 2013 10:54 AM

This shows hoe growing technology increases to help people with and without disabilities. Compared to Rhodes that has limited access and help for the dissabled, these inventions offer great support overcoming these obstacles. A story can be done on why these objects are not made readily available to more disabled people.

What is digital fluency?

What is digital fluency? | eLearning & Education | Scoop.it
Crucially, the outcome of being digitally fluent relates to issues of responsibility, equity and access. We all have the right to fully participate in a digitally-enabled education system and in an increasingly digitised society. If we work with fluency in the way we use technologies, we are able to keep ourselves safe online and take full advantage of life chance opportunities such as being able to apply for work, manage our finances, or be part of our local community

Teaching students to create their own learning is every bit as important as teaching subject knowledge, arguably, more so.
Marta Botella's curator insight, November 9, 2015 6:52 AM

En pleno Siglo XXI las competencias digitales se han convertido en un requisito indispensable para la sociedad, tanto en el trabajo como en el día a día de las personas. Por ello se pide el reconocimiento de las competencias digitales como habilidades básicas esenciales.

Los maestros deben fomentar las competencias digitales en sus alumnos con el fin de formar ciudadanos capaces de resolver toda clase de problemas con eficacia y creatividad.

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, April 29, 2015 11:20 AM

I worry that when educators see something like this they think it is yet one more thing to learn, know, and somehow implement.  I think this information is valuable, but I also think we need to do a better job of helping educators at all levels navigate INTEGRATION of all they are learning about and doing so they can not only see but experience how many of these initiatives and programs complement and support one another.

K-5 iPad Apps According to Bloom's Taxonomy - Edutopia

K-5 iPad Apps According to Bloom's Taxonomy - Edutopia | eLearning & Education | Scoop.it

"In this six-part series, I will highlight apps useful for developing higher order thinking skills in grades K-5 classrooms. Each list will highlight a few apps that connect to the various stages on Bloom's continuum of learning. Given the size and current exponential growth of the app market, I will also assist educators in setting criteria necessary to identify apps that maintain the integrity of teaching for thinking."

This looks like a great series - I reviewed a few of the posts and they are very well organized. Each one provides a summary review of a component of Bloom's Taxonomy and an explanation of connections with apps. Then there are specific examples of apps provided. A great resource for diversifying your instruction.
