Do students think we should be using social media in school?

Do students think we should be using social media in school? | ICT Integration in Australian Schools | Scoop.it
What stood out most to me from the survey results was the stark difference between the attitudes of the students who used social media daily and were given the opportunity to use social media in the classroom more than 5 times in a school year, versus what students who use social media daily, but who had never been given the opportunity to use it in class had to say. You see, those students only look that their own social use, their tendency to be distracted by their friends’ posts. They are also likely the students who have been taught nothing about social media beyond how bad it is, so it is no wonder that they could not see any educational value.

Students Across the Globe Learn About Augmented Reality — From Each Other -- Campus Technology

Students Across the Globe Learn About Augmented Reality — From Each Other -- Campus Technology | ICT Integration in Australian Schools | Scoop.it
Technology surrounds us, and so do questions about the readiness of our students to step into future job markets that have ever-increasing demands for technical competencies — and application proficiencies — in emerging technologies like augmented reality. One faculty member at Bentley University in Waltham, MA, considered ways that his students might best learn to create and use augmented reality. He designed a bold experiment with a partner school, Politehnica University of Timisoara, in Romania — the students would create AR artifacts to examine and learn from each other. In this learning collaboration, students from these two schools, on separate continents, learn about augmented reality and how it is used in industry.

Here, Mark Frydenberg, a senior lecturer of computer and information systems and director of the CIS Sandbox at Bentley University in Waltham, MA, details the project and the thinking behind it.

Four Ways Blended PD Makes Teachers Ready for the Classroom

With video, teachers can get feedback from their colleagues during non-school hours. They can also share short snippets, rather than having colleagues review a whole lesson. For instance, if a teacher is having trouble with transitions, she can tape only the transitions for another teacher to review. This leads to specific, actionable feedback, turning occasional opportunities to observe into a formative process.

At the Learning Counsel’s Annual Gathering and National Awards event, twelve leading districts were recognized for their vision and innovation in integrating digital curriculum and technology into their teaching and learning process. Attendees at the event included top education executives from around the U.S., who gathered to acknowledge exemplary progress and discuss how innovation, technology, and school and classroom remodeling is pushing the education envelope—all in the name of better outcomes for our youth.

“The Learning Counsel is helping education leaders chart a course that includes actionable data and current trends,” said Janell McClure, the director of Digital & Multimedia Learning from Cobb County School District. “These awards share incredible examples of innovative thinking. The knowledge we’ve gained at this Gathering event will guide our work as we continue to strive for excellence in teaching and learning through digital platforms, tools, and practices.”

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.
