8 Ideas That Will Break It Once And For All

8 Ideas That Will Break It Once And For All | New technologies in schools | Scoop.it

As education changes, it depends primarily on internal catalysts for that change. That is, the “things” that change it are on the “inside” of that system itself, most notably data, assessment, PLCs, and running a distant fourth, technology. It’s interesting that technology is among the least impacting “agents of change” in the classroom.

Jo Blannin - The Know Tech Teacher's curator insight, September 11, 2014 10:06 PM

This is a really challenging article that gives 8 ways that education will change - and is already beginning to change.

The idea that teachers' roles must change is imperative - we no longer have the luxury of a four year degree and thats it, with maybe a day of PD here and then. 

It's a brave new world people! How exciting!

Parents, if your children are very young, you might want to step back and give it some consideration. It's inevitable imho.

Redefining the Writing Process with iPads

Redefining the Writing Process with iPads | New technologies in schools | Scoop.it

With iPads, once we begin thinking beyond the confines of a page, anything is possible. Consider the video below created several years ago by two of my students. First they wrote plot summaries. Then they wrote character sketches. From there, they crafted paragraphs about theme, tying the visual and auditory elements of their videos back to the books. Finally, they created storyboards and bibliographies before producing and publishing their final product.

Worth taking a look at.  How many times have you heard people ask what their students can "do" on the ipad to submit their work.  This will walk you through using the ipad for writing.

Dictation Technology Will Change Writing Instruction | New technologies in schools | Scoop.it

If we look into the not-too-distant future, it appears that -- whether we like it or not -- dictation technologies will have effects on writing instruction. The time has come for us to decide exactly what kind of effects we intend for those to be.

How Digital Writing Is Making Kids Smarter

How Digital Writing Is Making Kids Smarter | New technologies in schools | Scoop.it

Writing used to be strictly an in-school activity. Now, kids do 40 percent of their writing outside of school. Called “life writing,” young adults’ social writing spans texts, tweets, social media, and blogs -- and all of it’s making kids more literate.

I can't believe kids are doing more than 40% of their writing outside of school. "Life writing" may make grammar teachers cringe, but at least students are engaging with others and sharing ideas in this format.

All learning technologies have a place, but "technology' - in the form of a solution, support and application device or system "decays" over time. It goes from technology to facility.....and falls from the innovation spot that breaks it into use. That said, drawing with a stick in mud, once a real innovation to led to early man being able to convey and communicate is still relevant in some situations. Mind you, saying that, I have to refrain from pointing these things out in case the current Education Secretary here in england decides to add it to the curriculum ;-)
