Interview | David Thornburg is Out of This World | EdTechDigest

Interview | David Thornburg is Out of This World | EdTechDigest | Frankly EdTech | Scoop.it

We recently had the chance to interview the inventor of the Educational Holodeck, Dr. David Thornburg, at his facility in Recife, Brazil where the world’s first installation is in progress. David splits his time between the U.S. and Brazil and is active in educational projects in both countries. His current project is a large undertaking that just may change the face of education for many children.

 

This is not a scene from a science fiction movie, it is an event happening with Middle School students taking a simulated trip to Mars in search of evidence for extraterrestrial life. These students are in their school but instead of being seated in rows in a traditional classroom, they are in a special room, the Educational Holodeck. This room’s function is determined by special computer software to create a fully interactive and immersive environment in which children apply their knowledge and skills to the solution of problems that break traditional disciplinary boundaries. The design of shields requires them to learn about the behavior of charged particles, the design and operation of electromagnets they will build themselves, along with other topics that cut across typical math and science classes. They do not ask why they need to know this stuff—their life, and the success of their mission depends on it! Engagement is complete.

QR Codes and Student Centered Learning | Catlin Tucker, Honors English Teacher | Frankly EdTech | Scoop.it

"Using QR codes is interesting and give students a chance to use their phones for cool in-class activities. Since the QR code is linked to a URL, providing one code allows a teacher to connect students with information they need. Teachers could:

Put QR codes on assignments and handouts to link students to a helpful video or online resource. That way students have a strategy for problem solving.
Use QR codes to take students on a virtual field trip without ever leaving the room.
Design an class webquest with QR codes that take students to the necessary resources they need, then they can work in collaborative groups to do creative tasks with that information and/or have in-class discussions on a variety of topics.
Use goo.gl to generate QR codes to direct students to online quizzing site like QUIA so you can track who has taken the quiz. OR send them to an online resource and track how many students actually viewed that resource.
Make a textbook interactive by using QR codes to direct students to supplementary information.Post QR codes on the wall to provide useful info about syllabus, schedule, cafeteria menu, sporting events, etc.
Create a QR code wall of fame in your classroom!" Caitlin Tucker

Combining Face-to-Face and Online Education

Combining Face-to-Face and Online Education | Frankly EdTech | Scoop.it

I have found that many who dream of online learning somehow imagine a virtual school where the teachers are no more than those who load up the assignments and set up the learning management system. But by taking actual teaching out of the distance learning equation, we are dooming distance learning to mere correspondence course status. And it has the potential to be far greater than any model we have thus far imagined, but only if the tools are used properly and if the balance of offline interaction and online learning are aligned.
