Jarrod Johnson's insight:

Lots of potential for Google Glass in the classroom, but these are still a long way off, and educationalists and more importantly students need to engage with this technology to determine how these can be used in the 'classroom'.

Coding is set to be the next generation jump. TV, internet, mobile phone, Google, iPad, Coding.

 

Students currently in schools do not seem to understand pre-Google. Technologically Word, Powerpoint, and web design are primary school tools.

 

Students who are not yet at school will be undertaking their education in an environment where they do not seem to understand devices that cannot be controlled by touching the screen, 3D printing of parts and pieces are common, and coding is a primary school tool.

At one time in the not so distant past there were no cell phones. And then everything changed at a rate faster than the speed of amending a student handbook. I can distinctly remember the first time one of my 8th grade students brought a cell phone to school. It really wasn’t that big of a deal, more of a novelty really. I mean one student with a cell phone had next to no bearing on our day to day school operations. But then a second student brought a cell phone.

Jarrod Johnson's insight:

This parallels my "Stages of the Flipped Classroom" https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=StiJ0YTD6ec where it takes the flipped model and stretches to encourage teachers to switch in steps from teaching at the board, to teaching with videos, to students learning from videos on their screens, to the 'flipped classroom'. The Flipped Classroom does not have to be a single jump with unlimited internet and technology, it can start with a simple step in the right direction.

Research-backed tips for finding your best time to write and come up with new ideas.
Jarrod Johnson's insight:

I know that the best time for me to work and get stuff done is very late at night (currently it has just ticked over midnight). However, I do find that to churn through productive work, mornings seem to get through a lot. Definitely have to agree that getting up out of bed and straight into the shower where I wake up normally leads my brain to come up with some really awesome ideas. Also get most of the days planning at this time. Have to install a waterproof iPad1 (no camera) in the shower to post and write notes.

LMS, BYOD, differentiation, gamification and augmented learning.

LMS, BYOD, differentiation, gamification and augmented learning. | ICT Integration in Australian Schools | Scoop.it

Placing computers in the hands of students does not equal good education. This is often just a shift of teacher directed learning from pen and paper to electronic note taking.

We need to leverage the power of technology to do what teachers have been doing for decades: helping students learn. Great teachers in a classroom naturally track the progress of students, differentiate learning tasks, and give feedback. However, now that we have great software it can augment what teachers already do and support the work that they do in the class.

A LMS is a platform that allows you to build and deliver content as well as track progress of students and give feedback. There have been many platforms in the past decade that have been used by millions of students and teachers around the world, but in Australia the biggest ones (and I apologise if I miss any) Moodle, StudyWiz, RM Learning Platform, Edmodo, Mahara, EduSphere, Frogger, Learning24x7, Seqta, Mathletics and Stile. Each platform has its benefits and limitations but at the heart is the desire for the software to help teachers to teach and more importantly students to learn. However, the platform has to be easy to use for students and teachers, easy to build great lesson and unit plans, engaging for staff and students, and give excellent, real-time feedback as well as track the progress of students.

Whichever program you choose to use, start small, get some runs on the board with students, teachers and parents, before scaling up to something too big. The model of early implementor versus late adopter can be used, but this will end up with the have and the have not students (this may be in either direction, sometimes the non-technological class becomes the haves through better class experience instead of clunky software and poorly built content and designs).

New trends with individual learning plans remove the need for differentiated curriculum as the content and tasks are designed for each student. This is very difficult to achieve in a normal classroom, but the engagement of students using technology is often the only way to achieve the end goal of a perfectly designed pathway for each student.

Happy to discuss this further and I encourage you to check out Stile Education as a potential platform for your school. For anyone who wants to go to the next step start looking into augmented reality and gamification in education.

Jarrod Johnson's insight:

Hope this insight gets some interest into LMS, gamification and augmented reality.

Learning styles - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Learning styles

Learning style is an individual's natural or habitual pattern of acquiring and processing information in learning situations. A core concept is that individuals differ in how they learn. The idea of individualized learning styles originated in the 1970s, and has greatly influenced education.

The Simplest Way To Record and Share Screen Actions: Recordit [Mac]

The Simplest Way To Record and Share Screen Actions: Recordit [Mac] | ICT Integration in Australian Schools | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good
Jarrod Johnson's insight:

A really quick tool for the Mac, but can do the same with Quicktime. Not sure if my firewall is preventing this from running. Recorded 5 seconds of footage from 1/4 of my screen on my MacBook Pro and has been cycling for about 5 minutes. Personally I pay the money and use ScreenFlow, which also allows webcam and microphone input together with screen casting and computer sound. Once finished recording the Screenflow editor pops up to allow you to adjust any of the shot.

Recordit.co is a new app for the Mac that allows you to easily record any screen action and to share it instantly with anyone.


Recordit is a super-simplified screencasting tool, that takes away any possible complexity or technical issues from recording screen actions.


This tool is ideal to share or report a bug you encounter in a certain app or to show where to click and what to choose to someone unfamiliar with a certain online service.


Free to use.


Download it now: http://recordit.co/ 


N.B.: It requires Mac OSX 10.9
