Engaging Students Through Social Media: Real World Experience, Creativity... | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Social media has become an essential part of most people’s everyday lives, from checking Facebook and Twitter to posting blogs, Pinterest listings, and uploading YouTube videos. However, and with smartphones making it easier than ever to spend time on social media networks, in what ways can these networks be leveraged to engage and build a foundation for future student learning? While the potential of distraction is there, the right social media teaching strategies can lead to creative learning, and a productive approach to making social media part of ongoing professional development.

Really? It’s My Job To Teach Technology?

Really? It’s My Job To Teach Technology? | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

First off, I like that Andrew calls technology a skill as that is a mindset that needs to change. Most teachers don’t see teaching technology as a skill but rather a “program”. If we view technology as a skill, then we can look at the skill students are learning through the use of technology. Let’s take a look at Blooom’s Taxonomy of Higher Order Thinking Skills.

Teaching technology is much like teaching creativity and deep thinking- the content is only a vehicle.  Tech should be woven into everything we do because the kids weave it into everything THEY do.

E-Safety – the role for educators

E-Safety – the role for educators | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The Network Information Security in Education, 2012 report by the European Network and Information Security Agency outlines the role educators can play in teaching positive and responsible online behaviour to students.

 

The report stresses the importance of not making assumptions about children’s knowledge on e-Safety issues due to the many misconceptions which exist about appropriate use of the Internet. Issues which educators are likely to be aware of, such as keeping passwords secure and not downloading copyright material, may be viewed quite differently by students. Many teenagers share passwords with each other as a sign of true friendship and many see internet content as public property and download music, videos and images without a thought of the legal issues of copyright.

 

The report sets out ways educators can help children use technology wisely and safely:

What is Blended Learning As Defined by Teachers | Education Elements

What is Blended Learning As Defined by Teachers | Education Elements | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

For those who don’t know the Gestalt Community Schools, they are an outstanding set of charter schools that believe in building better communities through education;  They are achieving excellent results for their students who mainly hail from low-income communities. Innovation abounds at Gestalt’s middle and high schools where students and teachers are using a rotational blended learning model that focuses on closing skill deficits in literacy and numeracy.

 

In this model, students rotate through 3 learning stations:

 

- The first is direct instruction from the teacher,

 

- the second is guided practice in small groups,

 

- and the third is independent digital practice prescribed by the classroom teacher.

WEAC's curator insight, August 7, 9:55 AM

"Because their brains are still developing and malleable, frequent exposure by so-called digital natives to technology is actually wiring the brain in ways very different than in previous generations. What is clear is that, as with advances throughout history, the technology that is available determines how our brains develops."

Larry Heuser's curator insight, August 8, 3:27 PM

Using the Internet is like jet skiing.  Skimming along the surface of the water at high speed, exposed to a broad vista, surrounded by many distractions, and only able to focus fleetingly on any one thing.

How to Ignite Passion in Your Students: Passion-based Learning

How to Ignite Passion in Your Students: Passion-based Learning | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

A study in 1985 “On the Brain of a Scientist: Albert Einstein” found that Einstein’s brain was actually not significantly different from others. As an Organization Development blogger put it:

 

                     ===> what made Einstein different was his mind. <===


His thinking and passion for learning were the basis of his genius. His brain was the same, but his intellect was markedly different. He was often humble about his intellect, and instead said that learning relied on working hard and imagining the impossible. So what made his learning so different? What can we learn from Einstein?
