Wired and tired: why parents should take technology out of their kid's bedroom

Wired and tired: why parents should take technology out of their kid's bedroom | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:

Many studies have shown us the importance of sleep. Devices and sleep do not always mix. With kids, they rarely mix. This is a piece of advice all schools and parents should heed.

LeadLearner: 5 Ways to Assess Learning without Giving a Test ::by John Wink

LeadLearner: 5 Ways to Assess Learning without Giving a Test ::by John Wink | Edumathingy | Scoop.it

"

I ran into a little push-back about assessment. The chief complaint was that increasing the number of assessments requires teachers to give up more instructional time to test kids. I couldn't agree more with. We don't need more tests. We need more instruction.
But here's the deal. Assessment is not testing. Assessment is determining if learning is actually taking place. In fact, assessment is a vital component on excellent instruction, and without assessment, you're not delivering instruction. You're disseminating information and opportunities to learn. "

Explicit instruction to guide students toward taking charge of their outlook on academic endeavors can lead to a more positive -- and ultimately more productive -- approach to learning.
