Study calls for stronger focus on IT and entrepreneurial skills in schools

Study calls for stronger focus on IT and entrepreneurial skills in schools | Ict@c | Scoop.it

I don't like these "homo economicus" arguments for edcuation, but the point is taken all the same.

 

European Commission - Press Release - European Commission Press release Brussels, 19 November 2012

 

The teaching of IT, entrepreneurial and citizenship skills is fundamental for preparing young people for today's job market, but, in general, schools are still paying insufficient attention to these transversal skills compared with basic skills in literacy, mathematics and science, according to a new European Commission report. Part of the problem is rooted in difficulties with assessment.

Mobile iEducator | reviewing the best apps for education | Ict@c | Scoop.it

These are my favorite apps for demonstration projects and presentations. Click on the icon or the link to connect to the iTunes Store. HINT: I use many of these apps with screenshots taken from what we are studying. To take a screenshot on an Apple device, hit the home button and the on/off button at the same time and the device will automatically capture whatever is showing on your app’s screen. Need a photo of Abe Lincoln? Google it, zoom and frame it so it fits the entire screen, then take your screenshot. You can now import it as a photo into most of the apps below.

What can you do with an iPad in the classroom?

What can you do with an iPad in the classroom? | Ict@c | Scoop.it

"The iPad is not going to replace teachers or ‘fix’ education. There is a cost implication that must be taken into account and only an educator will know if it is right for their students. Indeed the cost-benefit analysis for an establishment must take into account a host of factors when considering iPad use in the classroom. However, if there are iPads in the classroom, there are a number of applications that can enhance learning and assist the educator in developing student skills. In fact, the iPad allows educators to build on existing styles and increase flexibility in their classroom whilst personalising learning."

I never would have realized all the ways that technology has really changed the classroom until this article. It changes a lot more than one would think.

However, before addressing that question, I asked not only WHY iPads but WHY Technology? Because….

...What does this tangibly look like in the classroom? One English teachers asked where to even begin, so we started with a set of content-specific learning objectives.
