Therefore, to truly enable economic mobility in our society, we must acknowledge the master’s degree’s growing role as employers’ preferred or required educational qualification for many middle and professional-class jobs. Furthermore, in addition to the economic benefits of master’s-level education to individuals and employers, researchers have illustrated that greater levels of educational attainment are associated with higher levels of societal and community engagement and well-being."

"The research found that digital tools are “broadening the audience for their written material, and encouraging teens to write more often in more formats than may have been the case in prior generations.”

 

With this statement, I concur!

Here are five basic ways to use an iPad in your classroom. I especially like the idea of letting students use it to ask questions. Some students are shy and refrain from asking questions out loud, so the iPad is a great way to give them access to answers for their questions.

How Teachers Are Actually Using Technology In Their Classrooms - Edudemic

How Teachers Are Actually Using Technology In Their Classrooms - Edudemic | High School English | Scoop.it

"Earlier this year, a study was completed that aimed to understand how teachers use technology in their classrooms, and to identify some best practices for all to benefit from. As most of you well know, many teachers have to approach classroom technology from different angles. Some have to follow a specific set of rules from their school or district, including what devices and software to use. Some have great support from their school. Others have none at all, and if they want to integrate classroom technology, it is 100% up to them. But where ever you’re coming at it from, a few best practices can help a lot."

Alan Ovens's comment, May 17, 2014 5:01 PM
I'm sorry but I can't see why people scoop or re scoop this. The link to the research doesn’t work and it seems strange to me that the actual citation for the study is not included. I am also unclear why, from all the current research being done, this study was chosen and discussed. It relies on anecdotal evidence from teachers and tends to provide emotive rather than detailed information about how teachers use technology in the classroom. This does not reflect the depth and complexity of learning we want from our students. Re scooping it just reflects the superficial nature of this type of information.

Kelly Brenner Smith's insight:

Here are ten tips to editing your writing that I feel are very applicable to everyone. Tip #5 suggests that you print out a copy of your writing and read it out loud. This is advice that I always give my students who are creating writing pieces. I believe that hearing what you are trying to say on paper gives the writer a different perspective from which to make changes.
