Picking the right online tools to meet your the community engagement

Picking the right online tools to meet your the community engagement | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

I would emphasise upfront that the Spectrum is, in my opinion, the single most useful tool available for teaching newcomers to the world of community engagement. Its simplicity is, to a large degree, its greatest strength

 

Choices to make: 

 

Informing Decisions– to provide opportunities for the community to contribute to decision making processes.

Strengthening Relationships– to build new or improve existing relationships with the community ; and

Building Capacity – to educate the community on a specific theme or issue to increase knowledge and change behaviour.

"Increasingly I find that, not only do I have my sketching tools, but I also have a trusty iPad with me. This not only gives me access to many sources of inspiration but it also opens up the doors to new ways to record my ideas, sketch and even to create more detailed wireframes right then and there – wherever I am. Recently I have come across two new apps which are proving to be a great resource."

Let’s Play! 20+ Sites for Young Learners : Teacher Reboot Camp | Engagement Based Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Sometimes, the teachers of young learners get a bad reputation for playing all day in their classes. Let me tell you a secret. Any great teacher of young learners is definitely playing a lot in and out of the classroom! Play is an important part of development. Children are motivated by learning through play and learn a lot through playing such as:

Are you attending to life or practicing distraction? Embracing "gap time".

Video on attention and how "we are" in the world today. 

 

Average number of phone checks:  27 times per day.  We are more distracted and less able to pay attention to anything all day.  Multi-tasking does not really happen:  it is fast switching between two things.  He argues that it is not a good thing for us.  Multitasking is "practicing distraction".  Taking a big break from things that distract us allows us to attend better. 

 

I would argue one thing:  there are people who process everything quickly.  There are pros and cons to this.  But to use his analogy with our ancestors in the bush (multi-taskers would have been devoured by lions for not attending to the bush long enough) I would argue that attending too much without responding would actually be what fried the guy in the bush.  The problem with thinking and attending  too much is that there is a point when you have to ACT !  I see many people who don't ACT enough! 

 

Additionally, while there are many ways this new life has negative impact on us, many have learned to go to the zone to assimilate everything; to see connections between all the pieces you learned.  Creativity requires gap time, yes.  You can live in both words.  But you need to do so with intent. 

 

Practice slowing down with a long bike ride, slow walk, meditation, etc.  You cannot smell the dew on leaves if your nose is on the screen!

Thank you, Martin!

Vary the ways you present information/how students learn, vary the ways they can express themselves, and provide meaningful ways to engage students in their learning.
