5 Tips to Help Teachers Who Struggle with Technology | Teacher Resources | Scoop.it

"I'm not very tech savvy" is the response I usually hear from teachers that struggle with technology. Whether it's attaching a document to an email or creating a PowerPoint, some teachers really have have a difficult time navigating the digital world. As schools around the globe begin to embed the use of technology in their learning environments, these teachers can be left feeling frustrated and marginalized by the new tools they are required to use but do not understand.

You deserve this taught...

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, January 20, 2014 12:21 PM

Some of the animation links catalogued here will give educators very basic tools and histories of animation while others have the animation already created and set in motion, it’s just a matter of sharing it with students.

Educators need to decide which tool is best for them. If you want to create your own animation from scratch, then you want to go to sites such as Animwork. If you want to select from animation that’s already set up for you then perhaps Explainia makes more sense.

What exactly does ‘blended learning,’ look like? This video explains | Hechinger Report

What exactly does ‘blended learning,’ look like? This video explains | Hechinger Report | Teacher Resources | Scoop.it

"The term “blended learning,’’ is fast-becoming one of the education buzzwords that you will hear at conferences and in news articles.

 

Some call it digital learning or “personalized learning,’’ which is another way of describing how teachers can work with students at their individual skill level and deliver real-time instruction as needed — with the help of technology.

 

Blended learning is a better term than some of awful jargon that has crept into the lexicon of education, but it still merits some explanation. That’s why we are posting this this video by The Learning Accelerator, a non-profit whose mission is to accelerate high-quality blended learning in school districts across the U.S."

The future of learning - Sugata Mitra

The future of learning - Sugata Mitra | Teacher Resources | Scoop.it

In this talk, Sugata Mitra will take us through the origins of schooling as we know it, to the dematerialisation of institutions as we know them. Thirteen years of experiments in children's education takes us through a series of startling results – children can self-organise their own learning, they can achieve educational objectives on their own, they can read by themselves. Finally, the most startling of them all: groups of children with access to the internet can learn anything by themselves. From the slums of India, to the villages of India and Cambodia, to poor schools in Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, the USA and Italy, to the schools of Gateshead and the rich international schools of Washington and Hong Kong, Sugata's experimental results show a strange new future for learning.

nice way to show how knowledge becomes competency via experience

DEBOIS's curator insight, January 28, 2014 7:35 AM

Cet article propose 3 pistes pour établir des connexions et doper votre créativité :

- Ajouter de la connaissance, en réalisant des expériences nouvelles et transgressives par rapport à vos habitudes;

- Gardez des traces de toutes vos idées, et spécialement celles qui apparaissent de façon fugace sous la douche;

- Revoyez vos notes quotidiennement en adoptant la méthode Benjamin Franklin > demandez-vous ce que vous allez faire de bien au cours de votre journée au réveil, et ce que vous avez fait de bien lors de votre journée au coucher.
