Your Essential Back to School EdTech Checklist - FRACTUS LEARNING

Your Essential Back to School EdTech Checklist - FRACTUS LEARNING | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
The start of the school year brings with it more than a few ‘gotta-do’s for a classroom teacher. For that matter, if you’re also the designated ed tech “go-to person,” there are a LOT of tasks for you (and the IT team) to consider. With a technology program, ensuring that the various aspects of technology are ready for you, your colleagues and your students could be a huge task. It’s hard to envision all the aspects of tech that you might need to worry about, and if you or the team miss something, it only creates more heartburn and wasted time later.

To help your student-centered tech program get off to a fulfilling start, we have put together this checklist. Most of the items on the list will be important for you to consider. Some of these items will not apply depending on your role, your devices, and the latitude your administration and district allows, of course. In any case, reviewing this list will remind you (and your administration, tech support, teachers and others) of the needs of a highly engaging, fully functioning student-centered classroom.

Five ways teachers use Lego creatively in class - The Guardian Teacher Network

Five ways teachers use Lego creatively in class - The Guardian Teacher Network | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Hearing a child say they spent their school day playing with Lego may not go down well with parents. But these little bricks could become a fixture in maths lessons thanks to a new programme devised by the toy company.

Primary schools have long used Lego informally to teach. However, this month Lego Education is launching a new programme, MoreToMaths, a global scheme especially designed to help teachers tackle key stage 1 maths on the national curriculum using the toys.

The MoreToMaths kit, including lesson plans and teaching guides, costs £750 for a class of 30. While some may be sceptical about Lego’s move into education – and the price that may deter state schools – many teachers have already found cost-effective ways to use Lego in lessons.

We gathered these fun ideas from our teaching community.

Makers in the Making: Kindergarten Problem Solving with Lego Mazes - Amber Mazur

Makers in the Making: Kindergarten Problem Solving with Lego Mazes - Amber Mazur | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Looking for some fun and engaging ways to have kindergarten kids participate in problem solving (and creating), I turned to my trusty friend, Lego. Like many division one teachers, I use Lego often because it has so many applications. But as the 2014-15 school year came to a close, I was looking for a challenge. So, what I did was created a maze with Lego that a marble would travel to and showed this to the kids. I then challenged the kids to make a maze that would fit the marble (there had to be three empty spaces for width at all times).

A Great App for Kids with Reading Difficulties ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Great App for Kids with Reading Difficulties ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Visual Reading is a great reading app for kids having difficulty reading with just words and also for those suffering from autism and dyslexia. As a teacher or parent, you can create storyboards and use your won videos and images to associate with words. Your kid can then read the story either through words or with the help of the visual cues you provided.

A Teacher’s Guide to Wikipedia

A Teacher’s Guide to Wikipedia | idevices for special needs | Scoop.it
Wikipedia is often vilified in educational circles. The site’s loudest critics think that it offers biased, non-credible information. Many teachers specifically ban students from using the site from as a reference in research papers.

Jennie Tuvey's curator insight, July 31, 12:55 AM

My primary kids always go straight for Wikipedia - I always encourage it as a starting point if they want to. Because it is a great starting point when you are young and are just beginning to learn the ways of the abundance of information available. I believe it is also a great tool to start their critical thinking without them even realising!
