Nocking the Arrow: Classroom Management in a 1:1 Environment

Nocking the Arrow: Classroom Management in a 1:1 Environment | General Technology Info | Scoop.it

"Yesterday, an upset teacher pulled me out of a meeting requesting assistance.  She explained that there were several students in her classroom playing games on their iPads. Her frustration and sense of helplessness was evident in the tone of her voice and the look on her face.  By the time our short conversation concluded, it became apparent that she was blaming the technology for the lack of control in her classroom. "

Jeroen Bottema's curator insight, August 6, 2013 4:01 AM

Deze blogpost bevat een aantal tips voor klassenmanagement in een 1:1 omgeving (bijvoorbeeld een iPad klas, of een computerlokaal). Duidelijke stellingname: ICT in het klaslokaal kan het leerproces verstoren, maar dat is een ontwerpfout van de docent, niet van de technologie. Een aantal mooie tips om leerlingen en studenten te ondersteunen in het leren met de iPad.

I think if departments reviewed their faculty, it would become clear to them which teachers should *not* be forced into using technology in the classroom.  Questionably, if those teachers cannot teach the assigned material any longer, they may be driven to learn it in order to keep their jobs, but honestly, if teachers don't possess these traits in today's world, the only thing they should probably be driven to is a different job....

Educators aren't the "sage on the stage" anymore because information is readily accessible. Now teaching is about helping students make sense of all the info. 

Marie Arndt's comment, July 19, 2013 5:43 AM
The role of the teacher has changed in many ways, not just regarding teaching, but the importance they have in students' lives. Technology, as Susan rightly points out, quality of teaching cannot be disguised by technology. We must help students to be selective in the barrage of 'information' they are exposed to, which is not always that but biased tripe or propaganda.
Jeroen Bottema's curator insight, August 6, 2013 8:04 AM

A great idea: educated people showing compassion, and a shotglass more than the usual amount of daring.  Putting classes online for free, and using them for research to study how learning works, helps everyone.  At the time of this video there were 43 courses available. Hopefully now there's more.
