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, 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, 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.

Jacqueline Samuels's curator insight, June 13, 9:29 AM

Do Teachers Need iPad Training? - Edudemic

Do Teachers Need iPad Training? - Edudemic | eTEL | Scoop.it

"We have come to a point in the education technology journey where it seems rather dull to still be asking if the iPad is the right device for the classroom. The answer, in case you’ve missed the last few years of debate is that it is a great option, but this is not universally accepted and never will be. Nonetheless, one of the attributes you’ll hear put forward is that it is easy to use because of the intuitive nature of iOS. This is absolutely true; you can put the iPad into the hands of almost any child and within a short period of time they will have mastered it.


So does it then follow that you can out the iPad into the hands of teachers and expect the same results?

 

No."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 2, 7:49 PM

Yesterday I posted the top choices from the American Association of School LIbrarians (AASL) on the best apps for 2014. Today they listed the top websites in the following categories:

* Media Sharing

* Digital Stories

* Manage & Organize

* Social Networking & Communication

* Content Resources

* Curriculum Collaboration

As you review the websites you will find one or more standards that are addressed by the websites.

Although I know many of the websites, there are some that are new to me that I look forward to exploring. Below are several that I have used and really like, or are ones I have checked out and will be using in the future.

Are you looking for new tools and want ideas on how to use them as well as examples and links to learn more about the tool. Check out Remix-t, a site from the University of Notre Dame, that is chock full of great ideas and resources. Although this site is geared to college teachers the resources and examples will provide you with great ideas and you will be able to modify them for your classroom. You will find in under Content Resources.

Mixed Ink is a new site to me. It allows you to create a group of students who will write together. They may comment and evaluate the submissions and each students' writing will show up in a different color. This looks like  a great site, esp. for schools that are not using Google apps.

There are many more that I will be exploring. Do you have a favorite website? Share them in the comment section and let us know why it is a favorite of yours.

"On Saturday, two hard-working AASL committees presented juried lists of resources.


While I try my best to keep up with this stuff, these two darn committees just filled my summer with new explorations.

 

I take that back.  They’ve actually significantly narrowed the field by pointing to the learning tools most worthy of exploring and integrating next school year, along with standards alignment and tips for use."
