Why It's Time To Learn Another Language - Edudemic

Why It's Time To Learn Another Language - Edudemic | Hebrew Education | Scoop.it
I often hear language learning is much easier when you are younger, and that we must teach our young students another language when they are young so that they can be ‘more competitive’ in an increasingly globalized, connected world. While I don’t argue with that at all, there are many other benefits that come from being …

Catchbox Is A Throwable Microphone To Get The Audience Talking

Catchbox Is A Throwable Microphone To Get The Audience Talking | Hebrew Education | Scoop.it

Catchbox is a new throwable microphone designed to liven up audience participation, and in turn reduce the faffing around that seems to occur whenever a conference turns to questions from the audience.

The brightly coloured padded cube houses a wireless microphone that doesn’t mind being tossed across a room or passed from person-to-person crowd surfing-style. In fact, it’s actively encouraged. That’s because, along with being able to sustain being dropped, the device has been engineered to automatically mute the sound when flying through the air or if it falls.

As we move to the Common Core and we look at the Depth of Knowledge that will be required for our students it is clear that the need for our students to create is critical. This post starts with the following sentence:

"When was the last time your students said “Wow, that worksheet changed my life”?  Can you even remember a similar cookie cutter classroom activity or assignment from your days as a student? Yet they were a popular tool because they were structured and efficient in getting the class to a set finish point."

After presenting "the exploding volcano project" the post turns to four strategies. The short hand version is below. Click through to the post for additional information.

1. Start with your specific learning objective.

2. The idea to be expressed comes before the tool used to express it.

3. Make asking "How will this show mastery of the learning objective?" your classroom mantra.

4. Engage in evaluating the PROCESS of creation and not just grading the finished project.

There is also an example a learning objective and a project that one student submitted.

A FlipClass Welcome

Back-to-School Night Welcome Message: The Flipped Classroom

Via Felix Jacomino
Drora Arussy's insight:

Another wonderful example of a use of the flipped classroom - calculus. By allowing for some lectures to be done on an individual basis while students may repeat, slow down, speed up, pause, review, respond and all that while the teacher is free to work individually with students, incrate th larning t h next level, help facilitate their discussions and intersts. The transfer to language study is so evident- imagine not spending hours in the classroom reteaching the grammar topics in foreign language, but instead answering individual pointed questions and facilitating conversations that incorporate those concepts. many of us went the route of no grammar only to see many students need it, particularly the older students. A flipped classroom allows for the possibility of individual progress while not stopping a whole class.

For those using this in history - flipping must free up time and mind space for collaborative thought and projects and some wonderful discussions!
