Teaching the last backpack generation

Teaching the last backpack generation | ICT Integration in Australian Schools | Scoop.it

Never in the history of education has the delivery of instruction been so drastically altered so incredibly quickly. As I work with teachers across the country and read the literature surrounding the revolution that we are undergoing in education, I am excited about the possibilities of mobile learning but also concerned about the reluctance I see from teachers.

Libraries, Makerspaces, and STEAM Labs: What’s the Difference? By Dyan Branstetter | ICT Integration in Australian Schools | Scoop.it
Recently, my school district formed a committee to explore the idea of making our libraries relevant again. With drastic budget cuts a few years ago, our elementary had more or less been reduced to book circulation with a part-time librarian that shares three elementary schools. Relevancy is not a word that I would use to

With Toontastic 3D, kids can draw, animate and narrate their own adventures, news stories, school reports, and anything else they might dream up. All they need to do is move characters around on the screen and tell their story. It’s like a digital puppet theater… but with enormous interactive 3D worlds, dozens of customizable characters, 3D drawing tools, and an idea lab with sample stories to inspire new creations.

Becoming a tech-savvy teacher is great. Running a flipped classroom is impressive. Doing a variety of hybrid and blended learning is incredible. Does this make you a modern teacher, though?

It is not about being a tech-savvy teacher, it is about embracing the fact that we do not, and cannot know everything, but that we are comfortable learning and trying with the students. "If you are not learning in the 21st century you should not be teaching in the 21st century."

I’ve been so focused on finding information on hybrid/blended/flipped/ technology savvy classrooms I was humbly reminded of something by reading this article. A teacher cannot only focus on the technology side of class; they also need to focus on being quality teachers. This article points out great mindsets teachers should welcome into their teaching schema.

After reading this article in the New York Times yesterday I started thinking about one of my favorite coloring apps for children.  No matter how old or young you are coloring requires a combination of skills that can be applied in various situations.  Combining coloring with augmented reality is an easy way to introduce this exciting technology to students.  The colAR Mix app (available for iOS and Android devices) is a super fun choice with plenty of free options.

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, April 17, 2015 10:18 PM

The lesson here for higher ed is about developing familiarity with new technologies.  The possibilities for AR across all disciplines are immense, but often students (and teachers) find it difficult to initially connect with a use that allows them to start to conceive of how it can be used.  Something as ubiquitous as colouring is used in many contexts (think of the Anatomy colouring book used by many health practitioners to learn about systems and connections).

This technology is powerful because it gives them insights into the future. It makes them dream about the ways technology can change the world. Most of all, it inspires them to imagine themselves as part of the force that brings changes. Robots are increasingly being used in classrooms all over the world. The biggest advantage this technology offers is real-time feedback to all students in the class. Students enjoy learning with robots, so inspiring them to accept this new way of learning is not a big issue. Encouraging the teachers and schools to introduce robots in the classroom… that’s our problem.

Short Sharp Science: About time: Beer can freezes time in northern heavens

Short Sharp Science: About time: Beer can freezes time in northern heavens | ICT Integration in Australian Schools | Scoop.it

Taken with a beer can that has been converted into a pinhole camera, this image compresses three months into one instant.

The glowing paths show how, from our point of view, our closest star's travels across the sky change with the seasons. Variations in cloud cover cause the gaps in the silvery trails that form each day.

Justin Quinnell left the "can cam" near Antony Gormley's The Angel of the North, the iconic 200-tonne, 20-metre-tall steel structure near the A1 road just outside Gateshead in the north of England.

After three months, Quinnell removed the photographic paper the can contained, which now held a negative latent image of the apparent movements of the sun, which are caused by the Earth spinning on its axis. "The image forms with time, like a suntan," he explains.

The paper was then scanned into a computer and the image inverted using software to create the positive version shown here. This type of photography is known as solargraphy.

The highest path represents the sun's "peak", when it appears highest in the sky, which takes place on 21 June in the northern hemisphere. After this day the trails grow shorter and climb lower in the sky, revealing the approach of winter.

Together, the 23.5-degree tilt in the Earth's axis and its revolution around the sun are what give us our seasons. This striking image illustrates these changes and reveals the passage of time.

Jarrod Johnson's insight:

Amazing how a beer can pinhole camera can take such an amazing photo.

I was surprised when I found this article.  It was an interesting read.  It is nice to read that there are some benefits to social media.  This article was a breathe of fresh air.  One benefit is web engagement.  Students are developing Internet presence.  They are learning how to interact with others online using different functions as well.  Another benefit is knowledge.  Social media allows students to send and receive information daily.  Students are able to analyze, retain and share information more easily.  The third benefits is connections.  You can connect and engage with others on the Web without ever meeting them.  You can share with anyone in the world.  The last benefit is social media marketing.  Social media allows young workers to become great marketers.  Students are filling businesses social media marketing strategies.  Having social media can help students bring their kills to their jobs.  About 31 minutes on average is the amount of time students spend on social media daily.  I figured the average was higher.  I never thought about these types of benefits before.  These are helpful benefits for the future.  Social media is not all bad.
