Time to Dive in? A Chart of The Best Augmented Reality Apps to Use With Students

Time to Dive in? A Chart of The Best Augmented Reality Apps to Use With Students | Teaching, Learning, and Leadership - From A to Z | Scoop.it
Augmented reality is making some huge inroads in the field of education. More and more teachers are incorporating this relatively new technology in their classrooms. Augmented reality is also redefining the notion of learning by adding a layer of interactivity, engagement and vividness to students learning experiences. Teachers have been using augmented reality in many varied ways and across different school subjects, this post from Edutopia provides some good examples in this regard. The success of AR in education is attributed to the increasing availability of mobile apps designed specifically to help learners leverage the power of AR in their learning.  Below are some very good AR apps to try out with your students. This is a work in progress and we will be adding more to the list in the future. Enjoy

7 Teaching Strategies for Building Anticipation

7 Teaching Strategies for Building Anticipation | Teaching, Learning, and Leadership - From A to Z | Scoop.it
So often I walk into a classroom and announce, “Today we’ll be learning about ____________.” I fill in the blank with the teaching strategies for the day, and then I dive headlong into the lesson itself. When I start that way, students have no time to adjust themselves to the learning we’ll engage in that hour and have not had their background knowledge activated. One easy way to get students engaged in the lessons and primed for learning is to use what’s called an “Anticipatory set.” This essential teaching term is, according to teacher Jennifer Gonzalez, “A brief portion of a lesson given at the very beginning to get students’ attention, activate prior knowledge, and prepare them for the day’s learning. Also known as advance organizer, hook, or set induction.” It’s important that teachers take a few moments to carefully consider those opening moments of class to use teaching strategies that will help students become curious rather than bored, engaged rather than resistant. Here are a few teaching strategies for anticipatory sets that you might find worthwhile to try.

Design Thinking in Schools: Building a Generation of Innovators

Design Thinking in Schools: Building a Generation of Innovators | Teaching, Learning, and Leadership - From A to Z | Scoop.it
Observing today’s world can tell us much about tomorrow and what human beings need to meet future challenges. Along with the increasing challenges that we face everyday from economical challenges and climate change to extremism and the increasing language of hate between nations, we should raise a generation that is able to meet these challenges and find innovative solutions for tomorrow’s problems. In a previous article, Can we Apply Design Thinking in Education, we discussed how the current education systems still depend on the some core education pedagogy since decades. Although there is a sustaining innovation in some education systems, these future challenges seek a disruptive innovative that can contribute to building a generation programmed to solve problems rather than dealing with them.

When investigating the different routes to achieve this goal, one route seems to be appealing, as it aims to change how we thinking, which aligns with Albert Einstein’s quote: “You cannot solve a problem with the same mind that created it.” This route is based on design thinking, a methodology that aims to solve problems with a creative approach while putting the user in the center of the process to achieve a user-centered approach. Design thinking processes are not only applied to design business but extend to become a method that can be applied in daily life situation in order to solve our everyday problems or make our lives easier through innovation and creativity.

Why the Next 10 Years of Educational Technologies will Smash the Last 10

Why the Next 10 Years of Educational Technologies will Smash the Last 10 | Teaching, Learning, and Leadership - From A to Z | Scoop.it

When you think about the advance of technology in society in the last decade, the progress has been phenomenal – just take a look at these examples to see how far we have come in such a short space of time. Now, think about education. Think about the technology in your school ten years ago – perhaps a computer suite with an unreliable bank of PC’s; CD-ROMs; discs; slow, irrelevant programs; staff scared of using IT; and so on.

Kevin Morrison's curator insight, September 20, 10:42 AM
This is all great news but as a parent and having watched as my kids go through K12 it is abundantly evident and clear that none of this technology is worth a thing unless the educators that are using it as a tool understand it and can wield it to their benefit. Sadly they are having a tough time getting to grips with simple devices like iPads and Chrome pads with NO special software other than the reporting software. To which I am finding they are having trouble just posting things such as grades and test scores.
