Five Technology Skills Every Student Should Learn| The Committed Sardine

Five Technology Skills Every Student Should Learn| The Committed Sardine | English Language Issues | Scoop.it

From having the courage to experiment with different technologies to possessing online literacy, readers said being a tech-savvy student in the 21st century is about much more than learning how to use a certain software program or device—it’s about being able to adapt to what’s constantly changing.

Ένα ωραίο άρθρο για τη λειτουργία του νου.

MCG23's curator insight, April 3, 2013 8:51 PM

interesting article that i myself can relate to in the classroom.  I have my kids doing occasional exercise in my year 8 Mathematics class and the benefits of how the classes respond after a brief exercise break is fasinating.  Alas I have not done this as much with my older students...i need to break out of this model for my senior students!

Social Media is the New Normal for Educators

Social Media is the New Normal for Educators | English Language Issues | Scoop.it

Social media has been around for some time but its practical use is relatively new to educators. As I engage more and more educators in the use of social media for educational purposes I hear a lot of the same questions. Here are some of the most common questions with my responses.

The Most Important Education Technology in 200 Years

The Most Important Education Technology in 200 Years | English Language Issues | Scoop.it

Technology will define where online education goes next. All those millions of students clicking online can have their progress tracked, logged, studied, and probably influenced, too. Talk to Khan or anyone behind the MOOCs (which largely sprang from university departments interested in computer intelligence) and they’ll all say their eventual goal isn’t to stream videos but to perfect education through the scientific use of data. Just imagine, they say, software that maps an individual’s knowledge and offers a lesson plan unique to him or her.

Assessing the Value of Online Interactions

Assessing the Value of Online Interactions | English Language Issues | Scoop.it

I mostly follow learning, training, and eLearning people, but I also like some fiction authors and a few experts in other fields. Those people who only talk about what their cats had for breakfast? I don’t follow them. But it’s important to note: I am very active on Twitter. I engage, and talk, and interact with people. I drop in on several live Twitter chats a month. I try to contribute as much as I take. I like to think I help. So in looking at Wenger et al’s first column: I feel I get immediate value from the quality of interaction and reciprocity, I am given food for thought that I do reflect on, and I make it no secret that I am having fun.

How Computerized Tutors Are Learning to Teach Humans

How Computerized Tutors Are Learning to Teach Humans | English Language Issues | Scoop.it

While a computer can emulate, and in some ways exceed, the abilities of a human teacher, it will not replace her. Rather, it’s the emerging hybrid of human and computer instruction — not either one alone — that may well transform education.

Why Classroom Collaboration Is The Key To Lifelong Learning

Why Classroom Collaboration Is The Key To Lifelong Learning | English Language Issues | Scoop.it

There are many more careers that require team-work than there are solitary professions, and – crucially – there’s strength in numbers. But collaboration is more than just co-operation; it can be used in the entire learning process, from the teacher teaching the class to the students educating one another.

The paper brings together the invention strategies introduced in Emig (1971), Elbow (1973, 1981), and Murray’s (1982) work. The paper then discusses briefly Vygotsky’s (1978) concept of ZPD and what it means and adds to invention strategies in the writing class. The last section of this paper will look into the use of computers and networks in the invention stage.

Blended Learning in English Language Teaching: Course Design and Implementation

Blended learning is an area of ELT that continues to be of interest to practitioners in the field. Despite this, little can be found in the literature on blended learning course design or detailed descriptions provided of blends used in ELT contexts. This publication, which contains twenty case studies from around the world, addresses this deficit by illustrating blends being employed on EAP, ESP, Teacher Development and general EFL courses.

How 21st Century Thinking Is Just Different - TeachThought

How 21st Century Thinking Is Just Different - TeachThought | English Language Issues | Scoop.it

If the 20th century model was to measure the accuracy and ownership of information, the 21st century’s model is form and interdependence. The close thinking needed to grasp this is not beyond the reach of a typical middle school student, but it may be beyond their thinking habits.

Project Based Learning Tools

Many people have requested a source for the management tools that are used in the Project Based Learning plans on Teach 21. Here is the place. You will find rubrics, checklists, task management charts, learning logs and other documents that will help your PBL planning and delivery. Most of the documents were created by West Virginia teachers and used in the PBLs on Teach 21. Other documents were created and published on the Novel Approach PBL website, which is no longer on the internet. WV has been given permission by the creator of the site to continue using these PBL documents.

Another Way to Think about Learning

Another Way to Think about Learning | English Language Issues | Scoop.it

As we industrialized learning and created schools, we needed to measure the system’s efficacy and each child’s progress. What you really want to measure is curiosity, imagination, passion, creativity, and the ability to see things from multiple points of view. But these are hard to measure other than one on one, and even then, the assessment will be subjective. So instead, we measure what a child knows, and from that we infer that the child has learned how to learn. This is the real aspiration we have for our children: learning learning.

The Sad Reality Of Education Technology | Edudemic

The Sad Reality Of Education Technology | Edudemic | English Language Issues | Scoop.it

The sad reality is that most schools still believe that they are “teaching with technology” because they have a computer lab where they teach students important skills like word processing and how to create Power Point presentations. This may have been a worthwhile skill to teach 15 years ago, but the fact that we haven’t adapted as technology has is a clear example of how slow schools are to respond to the changing needs of our students.

Facebook as a learning tool? A case study on the appropriation of social network sites from mobile phones in developing countries | English Language Issues | Scoop.it

First, unlike in previous studies, the analysis revealed explicit forms of educational content embedded in informal learning contexts in Facebook. Quizzes, case presentations and associated deliberate (e-)learning practices which are typically found in (more) formal educational settings were identified. Second, from a sociocultural learning perspective, it is shown how the participation in such virtual professional communities across national boundaries permits the announcement and negotiation of occupational status and professional identities.

Are kids really motivated by technology?

Are kids really motivated by technology? | English Language Issues | Scoop.it

You can’t motivate students with technology because technology alone isn’t motivating. Worse yet, students are almost always ambivalent toward digital tools. While you may be completely jazzed by the interactive whiteboard in your classroom or the wiki that you just whipped up, your kids could probably care less.

Concept Map Assessments

Concept Map Assessments | English Language Issues | Scoop.it

Concept map was developed by Joseph Novak based on the cognitive theories of David Ausubel (Assimilation Theory) who stressed the importance of prior knowledge in order to gain deep learning on new concepts. So by understanding what you already knew, and relating new concepts to what you knew, meaningful deep learning can easily occur.
