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.

T@T lab's insight:

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.

What are the fundamental components of Interactive Learning Events

What are the fundamental components of Interactive Learning Events | eTEL | Scoop.it
“Mankind learns best by example and observation. This is demonstrated in babies who learn every second by observing and imitating the environment and people around them. This fact holds good for adults too. Adults also learn by experimenting on their own and through trial and error. Think of the caveman who discovered fire by accidentally striking two stones together out of sheer boredom.Thus, any instance/situation can impart learning and such instances/situations are referred to as learning events. In the context of eLearning, a learning event refers to any event developed to facilitate learning. This includes the content along with its organization, visualization, presentation strategy, assessments used to reinforce learning and the feedback provided. While these elements are common across all eLearning courses, the fundamental blocks of interactive learning events are context, challenge, activity, and feedback.”

Not Just for Students: Mobile Teacher Professional Development

Not Just for Students: Mobile Teacher Professional Development | eTEL | Scoop.it
“Mobile phones are emerging as an important professional learning vehicle for the millions of teachers who lack access to computers and technology and their use as teacher professional development tools is expanding. This article shares some examples of how simple mobile phones provide teachers in sub-Saharan Africa and South Asia with access to content, language instruction, and curriculum. While the mobile phone is a promising tool for teacher learning, the article outlines some of the challenges associated with mobile learning and cautions against the temptation to abandon or reduce face-to-face interventions (when possible) in favor of phone-based learning.”

The Qualitative Formative Assessment Toolkit: Document Learning with Mobile Technology - Edutopia

The Qualitative Formative Assessment Toolkit: Document Learning with Mobile Technology - Edutopia | eTEL | Scoop.it
“ What is qualitative formative assessment? Some call it anecdotal or informal assessment. However, such designations imply passivity -- as if certain things were captured accidentally. I believe the word "formative" should always be included with the word assessment because all feedback mechanisms should help shape and improve the person (or situation) being assessed. Wedging the word "qualitative" into my terminology differentiates it from the analytic or survey-based measures that some associate with the term formative assessment. For my purposes, qualitative formative assessment is the ongoing awareness, understanding, and support of learning that is difficult or impossible to quantify. An informal observation or the look on a learner's face can inform a teacher about a student's progress, yet such signals are challenging to capture or convey to the relevant agents (i.e., the learner, the teacher, or the parent).”

Right! It is within the interpersonal relationships that most of us find the motivation to complete a long, challenging task.

Christa Meenan's curator insight, April 23, 9:14 AM

While highlighting the obvious benefits of MOOCs for self-motivated individuals, this aricle does a nice job of also explaining the importance of face-to-face interaction with the instructor for many students to succeed.  Blending MOOCs with other forms of delivery may be a way for MOOCs to move forward with lower dropout rates.

“Given the ubiquity of mobile devices being used by students in their university, a group of lecturers formed an action-learning group to learn collaboratively about enhancing their teaching with mobile pedagogies. The community of learners developed a process for setting goals for themselves, and for implementing action plans to do with integrating mobile technologies in teaching. The article discusses the processes used and the lessons learned through this project. These findings have informed work done with schools that are trying to integrate mobile learning into their classrooms.”
