Selecting the correct type of format greatly increases effectiveness of content.  THis is similar to helping students learn to write for audience and purpose.

The First 5 Minutes: Ignite Student Learning

The First 5 Minutes: Ignite Student Learning | Tech for teachers | Scoop.it
I have a teaching colleague who was a very talented track and field athlete back in the day.

In one of our recent conversations about teaching and learning, she shared a bit of “sprinter wisdom” that is making a notable difference in my classroom.

She explained —

“Great lessons are a lot like running the 100-meter dash—a strong start makes all the difference.”

Most educators would agree that – when done well – the opening minutes of class have the potential to ignite a ‘wildfire’ of engagement and effort among our students. But a poor start – one that fails to pique learners’ interest, establish real-world relevance or engage students in authentic, challenging learning tasks – is akin to trying to start a fire with wet matches and kindling.

I’m going to suggest some ways we can blend tech into effective “class starters,” but first a quick look at the research.

For years I spoke to the importance of the first and last 5 minutes of a lesson so this resonated with me. There are several practices that you can choose from if you are looking to ignite or hook your students attention. Authors such as Dave Burgess have written excellent texts regarding this. Plenty of resources available.

“ A team of designers does not always work in the same office; you work in distributed groups, some of you may be working from home, and clients can be based all over the world. This is where collaboration tools come in – they make it easier and faster for designers to get feedback and approve artwork in a professional manner, and they come in all sort of forms, from free Android apps to Chrome extensions. Some are created specifically for designers, some serve as a concept crafting whiteboard often with tools to make simple annotations, and some are all-in-one web apps that include an element of project management. ”

The problem with universal access to technology is the fact that it provides almost unrestricted access to information. Much of this information is fantastic and can give a real boost to the learning experience. The danger exists where there is mis-information, inaccuracies and worst of all information that might promote prejudice, discrimination, hatred and violence.

50 Apps That Represent 50 New Ways To Learn

50 Apps That Represent 50 New Ways To Learn | Tech for teachers | Scoop.it
Modern learning is in a state of flux as it struggles to find out what it wants to become.

Schools continue to merely “add on” learning, while technology strongly suggests new possibilities for inside and beyond the classroom. From learning simulations and mobile learning, to adaptive apps, flipped classrooms, and self-directed learning through amazing digital channels, the possibilities for learning are almost overwhelming.

Below we’ve gathered a diverse list of learning apps across iOS and Android from giants like Google, Apple, Microsoft, as well as upstarts like Brainfeed, The Sandbox, and Knowji. None of the apps are perfect, but each app does something special, and in that talent represents what’s possible as we careen towards 2020 and beyond.

This is a very informative post on the Padlet tool. There are so many features offered on Padlet. The post highlights great ideas from teachers in all sorts of situations. As a pre-service teacher, finding these types of posts are fantastic. I really love the idea of the sandbox Padlet and the feature that allows the teacher to turn the Padlet off while not at school so no discriminative words can be posted.
