The 16 characteristics of a modern teacher

The 16 characteristics of a modern teacher | ICT Integration in Australian Schools | Scoop.it
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?

Via Becky Roehrs
Jarrod Johnson's insight:

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."

Great teaching is not about technology-it's about being a learner, who takes risks!

Augmented Reality Coloring Pages- ClassTechTips.com | ICT Integration in Australian Schools | Scoop.it
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.

Just bought a colouring in book for Sophie that does this. The fact that I can make my own is cool.

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, April 17, 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 is an article to come back to at the beginning of each school year. These factors (temperature, lighting, color, size of the room) may not always be under the teacher's control, but working to include student work, the proper amount of wall space, etc., could be beneficial for student achievement.

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.

Learning games are still poised right before their prime. Not a lot of people really understand how powerful they can be yet. This makes funding challenging, in no small part because what seems like luxury — polish, iteration, playtesting — is in fact crucial for the development of effective games of any kind, and these things don’t come cheap. But if what we want to do is learn about how to advance game design itself, there is no better place to be.
