ICT in Primary Education: Transforming children's learning across the curriculum

ICT in Primary Education: Transforming children's learning across the curriculum | eTEL | Scoop.it

Why and how are teachers integrating ICT (Information and Communication Technology) into primary education? In this course we analyse examples from schools in different parts of the world, and bring professional teachers, headteachers and policymakers together to share their best ideas and inspiring stories. The materials in the course are based on studies carried out for the UNESCO Institute of IT in Education, Moscow.

Lina Marcela Gómez Q's curator insight, June 2, 2014 7:11 PM

This course is a really good source of information about the way to link ICT and Elementary Education, which is something really important and necessary in this and next generations..

Judy Brown's curator insight, June 7, 2014 11:49 AM

Children are and should be our main focus into the world of ICT. Children who are not book smart will welcome  the use of computers especially those who are impaired. with hands on they would be able to do and seek fast results in any area they are interested in.

Why do we stop children being playful learners and then worry about how we can make them creative?

Why do we stop children being playful learners and then worry about how we can make them creative? | eTEL | Scoop.it
“ Mitch Resnick in his article Lifelong Kindergarten concludes with the thought :“Instead of making kindergarten more like the rest of school, we need to make the rest of school – indeed, the rest of life – more like kindergarten.”This reflects the points I raised in my previous blog post about developing a playful mindset in students, (“Do we have the confidence to let students be playful learners?”) that the conditions that are naturally found in play are exactly the ones we are all trying so hard to create in the learning environments of our classrooms.” Why then is it that schools seem to try so hard to suppress students’ natural desire for play only to relabel those desires as creativity a few years latter and fret about students not being able to do them?"

This is so true.  It's a shame we are so intent on getting data, data, data at the cost of creativity which is hard to measure and quantify until it's not there anymore.

European University Association > Trends 2015: the changing context of European higher education

European University Association > Trends 2015: the changing context of European higher education | eTEL | Scoop.it
May 07, 2015 EUA has launched the Trends 2015 report, which presents the universities’ perceptions of the changes that have taken place in European higher education over the past five years, particularly in relation to learning and teaching. Based on survey responses of 451 higher education institutions from 46 countries (48 higher education systems), the report outlines the changing context in which higher education institutions operate. ... The quality of learning and teaching is receiving increased attention and support by the academic staff and the institutional leadership. As examples, 60% have a centralised unit for pedagogical staff development, and 63% have institution-wide quality assurance policies and processes. The implementation of learning outcomes has continued to progress since 2010, with 64% of institutions responding that these have been introduced for all courses. Institutions are generally positive about the benefits of learning outcomes. It is clear, however, that in many institutions their implementation appears to have taken place without changing in radical ways how curricula, including examinations, are developed. Therefore this area is still a work in progress.

“ It’s move-in week this week at the state university campus across the street from where I live and where I taught for several years. This occasion always reminds of the ominous first paragraph of Don DeLillo’s 1984 academic satire White Noise, which begins, “The station wagons arrived at noon.”The station wagons and the provisions they carry have changed in 30 years, but the dislocation recorded by the narrator hasn’t. The students still “get younger every year,” as my colleagues like to joke. T”

Working out loud 101: Some thoughts

Working out loud 101: Some thoughts | eTEL | Scoop.it
I think John Stepper's description of "working out loud" is still the best: Working Out Loud starts with making your work visible in such a way that it might help others. When you do that – when you work in a more open, connected way – you can build a purposeful network that makes you more effective and provides access to more opportunities.Here's a nice comic strip style graphic illustrating the 5 key elements of "working out loud". I am not sure who has created it and hence couldn't give the right credits:The elements of "working out loud" need to be broken down into implementable steps to help someone get started with actually putting it into practise. I am typically confronted with the following questions when I tell someone that they should start "working out loud"...I have inserted my responses below each question. I have tried to keep them concise.
