Why We Need Digital Wisdom

Why We Need Digital Wisdom | ICTs and ELT Resources | Scoop.it

Fewer and fewer jobs can be done without technology. Our increasingly sophisticated technologies enable our enhanced minds to do many previously impossible things, such as mass individualization, and quickly connecting and combining ideas from humans around the world.

Nice article by Marc Prensky. Love this quote "For today’s young people, using technology is as fundamental as reading was for their parents and grandparents. It underlies and supports everything they do."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 13, 2013 10:09 PM

Pinterest has become a great location to find educational sources, and now they have launched a teachers hub. Currently they are boards that share information for grades PreK through Grade 6 (one board per grade) as well as boards for Art, Science, Math, Classroom Decor, Classroom Management, Home  School, Literacy, Sensory Learning, Gold Star Supplies, Back to School and Educational Blogs.

For more information on this new feature you may travel over to the Pinterest Blog where they posted "Say Hello to Pinterest" at http://blog.pinterest.com/post/58175180377/say-hello-to-teachers-on-pinterest

The current boards are for elementary school but the post also notes that they will "work together with Edutopia—an online resource for educators—to build out the education-focused community on Pinterest."

If you are looking for lesson plans, ideas for your classroom, and more it is worth checking out this resource.

Peer editing in digital and mobile environments

Peer editing in digital and mobile environments | ICTs and ELT Resources | Scoop.it

For years now I have been happily using EtherPad based services like http://primarypad.com/ and http://sync.in/ to get participants on the training courses I deliver to work collaboratively to create and peer edit texts. Increasingly though I've been having problems with the reliability of the free services these companies provide and the lack of reliable compatibility with mobile devices.

If you are looking for some new tools to try this post is worth checking out. Twenty tech tools are included, each with a brief description. Have you heard of DoSomething.org? This site "encourages teens to band together and work for positive social change." How about Hippocampus? The Monterey Institute of Technology and Education provides great multimedia content geared to high school and college. The tools listed cover pre-school to college, but not all are free.

The 21st-Century Digital Learner

The 21st-Century Digital Learner | ICTs and ELT Resources | Scoop.it

After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students. The tradition in education has been not to ask the students what they think or want, but rather for adult educators to design the system and curriculum by themselves, using their "superior" knowledge and experience.

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 24, 2013 5:27 PM

Just as speaking is the outcome of listening, so writing is the outcome of reading, not the other way round. Listening to the student should also include "listening" to their writing. ie., analyse what they are saying and how they are doing it.  When students evaluate their own work, the teacher should listen and guide them to ways of improving it, whether it be punctuation, paragraphing, spelling, or word or subject knowledge.  This is how we bring students on board and empower them to learn. 

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 31, 2013 4:49 PM

Listening to students has two aspects; listening to what they say orally, and 'listening' to their writing which is only another way of talking, only through a code. Just as learning to speak is tied closely to listening to what is said and being exposed to words that help one to think better, so writing is the same  and relies on reading "or listening" to what others say and how they say it to express clear meaning. The two subjects, reading and writing, are closlely intertwined yet we compartmentalize them in the literacy curriculum. An example of adults thinking they know what is best for children.

Free Technology for Teachers: 43+ Alternatives to YouTube

Free Technology for Teachers: 43+ Alternatives to YouTube | ICTs and ELT Resources | Scoop.it

"Excellent educational content can be found on YouTube. However, not every teacher can access YouTube in his or her classroom. That's why a few years ago I compiled a big list of alternatives to YouTube. Over the years some of those sites have shut-down, started charging a fee, or have switched into another market. So this evening I went through and eliminated some sites from the list and added a few new ones."

Richard Byrne has updated his list of sites that provide free videos. His top five list is below:

* Next Vista

* PBS Video

* Explore.org

* The National Film Board of Canada

* Vimeo

Each link provides a short description of what the site has to offer. You will also be able to access the fill list of sites through this post.
And if you are trying to search for a video you might want to try out the Custom Search Engine he has created through Google. This search engine is accessible at this link: http://www.freetech4teachers.com/2013/08/a-youtube-free-video-search-engine.html

Videos are a great tool to quickly engage students in learning and this list of websites as well as this search engine are great options to put in your toolbox.

I will certainly be sharing this with staff at my school! The list is thorough and gives a brief desciption of each of the sites mentioned. The list is also up-to-date, having just been checked and edited by it's original creator.

A visual stimulus that would be an appropriate resource to support students as they evaluate designs and create designs.  

 

Suggested Activities:

-Students identify the technology that has replaced the technology shown.

- Students complete comparison activity where they compare the benefits of the old and new technology and make judgements based on their observations.

-Students choose a piece of technology that they currently use and create a new technology to replace it.
