A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills

A global look at pedagogies for 21st century skills | ICT in Education | Scoop.it

Disconnects between policy mandates/supports and desired practice were found in most of the schools and all of the systems in our sample. For example, teachers were often being asked to innovate while being incented and judged solely by measures of the facts that students had acquired through traditional means, or given ICT to use without related curricular materials and models for ways to use it powerfully and effectively in subject matter learning. It was rare that teachers experienced standards, curriculum, professional development, assessments, and incentives that all aligned to support the development of students’ 21st century skills.

It is not the desired practice which is disconnected, but more an issue of did policy makers actually go into classrooms and have conversations with teachers.

I like some of these ideas. I'm thinking we could have students make podcast booktalks and have QR codes linking to them in the books or on a display or around the school. Hmm...kids can't use their phones at school, yet. Well, I can always put links to them in our catalog and on the website.

"We all panic when our iPad starts acting up, well no wonder its costly. But sometimes the source of the panic can be dealt with using  some simple tips. Other times prevention is better than cure, in other words, instead of waiting till our iPad gets "cranky" then start looking how to fix it, we can prevent such mishaps with proper usage."

The Evolution of Classroom Technology - Edudemic | ICT in Education | Scoop.it

We’ve certainly come a long way but some things seem hauntingly similar to many years ago. For example, Thomas Edison said in 1925 that “books will soon be obsolete in schools. Scholars will soon be instructed through the eye.” I’m pretty sure this is exactly what people are saying these days about the iPad.

Disadvantages Of Teaching With PowerPoint

Disadvantages Of Teaching With PowerPoint | ICT in Education | Scoop.it

Because of the usefulness and versatility, PowerPoint has gained popularity and become a top brand of various presentation programs for institutions, individuals and organizations.

It is indeed useful in making a presentation a successful one. In fact, this amazing presentation tool has a lot of advantages but like any other institutional tool, this software has some disadvantages that teachers and students must know and understand before making any investment of resources and money.

Looks like a great tool - I hope there is an Android version of it. 

StudentSupport@EdinburghCollege's curator insight, June 18, 2013 10:35 AM

Studying is not the intended function of this application, however, by uploading lecture slides as images, or taking pictures of the board during class, then uploading these images to Pixntell, would allow you to create your very own custom Flashcards. By recording your own audio notes to accompany the images, you could create short movies that could act as bitesize recap tools to support your revision, or prompts for studying, or a visual plan for your coursework.

A Teacher's BYOT Handbook: 10 Checklists For Creating Your Plan | TeachThought

A Teacher's BYOT Handbook: 10 Checklists For Creating Your Plan | TeachThought | ICT in Education | Scoop.it

"A few weeks ago, we shared 11 sample BYOT policies http://bit.ly/19pF4WW to help you create your own.

 

Unlike some learning tools, BYOT resources have to be diverse because of the inherently flexible nature of BYOT. What works for one school or district may not for another.

 

Another challenge for educators looking for BYOT “stuff” is that what you’re finding is likely scattered all over the internet. Which makes the handbook of BYOT “stuff” that convergemag.com created (and grabonlee is hosting) all the more helpful. In it you’ll find 10 checklists for creating–or simply checking–your BYOT plan, covering the following topics."

Goede tips van Mike.

- Ga uit van wat je leerlingen wilt leren en kijk dan of technologie iets toevoegt. Niet? dan niet inzetten. - Ga niet voor het laatste nieuwe product. Kijk of jouw "apparaat" kan wat jij met leerlingen wilt ondernemen. Misschien wel de beste tip: hou vol. Als iets niet werkt, probeer dan iets anders.
