Who will my students BECOME after they LEARN with me?

Who will my students BECOME after they LEARN with me? | English teaching thru social networks | Scoop.it

 

LEARNing has to involve change…change in the way the LEARNer thinks, feels and acts. It’s not just about LEARNing “stuff” or it shouldn’t be.

 

The “stuff” we are creating these days is growing at exponential rates…and if our goal, as TEACHers, is to simply TEACH this stuff, we might as well just pack up and go home – and leave it all to the tech we now have!

Teaching and learning are not opposites either.

"Below is an interesting Prezi presentation http://bit.ly/13lZBKr that I came across while I was browsing my Twitter feeds. This work has been realized by Steve Dembo and features some of the ways YouTube is being used for storytelling. I know YouTube is regrettably blocked in many schools here in Canada and also in the States and I really hope that whoever in charge of decision making in these countries would get their eyes open to the fact that they are wasting many learning opportunities for students."

A Fabulous Flow Chart on How Students Should Use Images from The Web ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Fabulous Flow Chart on How Students Should Use Images from The Web ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | English teaching thru social networks | Scoop.it

"Using multimedia is part and parcel of students work in the classroom. Several classroom projects now include curating resources, using images and videos. However, the use of such media materials is regulated and does require complying by certain rules and guidelines. The wrong idea that many of our students hold about using media in class must change. They need to learn that something being accessible, downloadable and free does not mean it is ok to use it with no restrictions.

For instance, when using images and pictures from the web, students need to learn how to properly give credit to their owners. The graphic below is a wonderful flow chart created byddd to help teachers teach their students about how to properly credit images they use. Enjoy"

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 18, 2013 10:38 AM

This is the last of a series of three posts that looked at "teaching and learning with an iPad." This post looks at if from a student perspective and discusses three lessons learned (as well as providing data from this 3-year study). The three lessons discussed are:

* Lesson 1: Organization

* Lesson 2: Timely Workflow and Communication

* Lesson 3: Information Access

Access to Part 1 and Part 2 of this series are available at the end of the post. Part 1 look at the lessons learned from the viewpoint of an administrator. The three lessons discusses in this post are:
* Lesson 1: It's About Work Flow & Connectivity, Not Apps

* Lesson 2: Staff Development and Support

* Lesson 3: Be A Model

Part 2 of the series explored the viewpoint from a teachers perspective. The three lessons in this post discussed:

* Lesson 1: Change of Habit

* Lesson 2: Success is in the Support

* Lesson 3: 1:1 iPads Changing Students Performance

For those whom may be pushing out iPads this year or for those using iPads the information in these 3 posts is valuable, esp. since it covers a 3-year period and the perspectives of the 3 key parties involved.
