10 Techy Icebreakers for The 21st Century Teacher

10 Techy Icebreakers for The 21st Century Teacher | Improving Instruction One Teacher at a Time | Scoop.it

Icebreakers are " discussion questions or activities used to help participants relax and ease
into a group meeting or learning situation" (Dover, 2004). Icebreakers are very important in the learning-teaching process that takes place within the classroom. They can help in creating and maintaining a healthy and successful learning environment for students and are also the best warm-ups to get students engaged in a learning task.

Why philosophy? Because the study of philosophy, the "love of wisdom," creates and nurtures thoughtful minds, minds that can -- as Aristotle suggests -- entertain a thought without accepting it.

Share PowerPoint Presentations Online With Reel Web App

Share PowerPoint Presentations Online With Reel Web App | Improving Instruction One Teacher at a Time | Scoop.it

A large number of people create presentations in MS PowerPoint, however many devices nowadays do not support the PPT format. For example, many people now carry tablets and smartphones instead of laptops, which do not necessarily have PowerPoint installed on them.

If you frequently require sharing PowerPoint presentations, PDF documents or image files, then try the Reel web app. It is a free service that allows users to upload and share the aforementioned file types via a a unique sharing URL and an embed code.

Baiba Svenca's curator insight, December 28, 2012 11:35 AM

With Reel you upload your PowerPoint presentation or PDF files, edit slide information or remove slides, get your URL and share your presentation on the web.

Once you have saved your presentation, you won't be able to edit it but the viewers can vote on your slides. This feature makes Reel presentations great for polling purposes.

It is suitable for students because it is free and does not require registration.

A Pedagogical Framework For Digital Tools

A Pedagogical Framework For Digital Tools | Improving Instruction One Teacher at a Time | Scoop.it

Dolly Bhasin 's curator insight, December 27, 2012 3:10 AM

The framework is based on a distinction between a monological, a dialogical, and a polyphonic form of teaching. The three forms of teaching can be distinguished by their different perceptions of how learning takes place, and by their different perceptions of the relations between subject matter, teacher and student. By considering which form of teaching one wants to practice, one may, on the basis of the pedagogical framework, assess whether it would be appropriate to use a specific tool in teaching.

Alfredo Corell's curator insight, December 27, 2012 6:44 PM

changing among 4 different frameworks - interesting and short reading

Miloš Bajčetić's curator insight, December 28, 2012 5:46 AM

The monological form of teaching – Learning is the student's acquisition of this knowledge.Tools – distributing and intermediary tools.

 

The dialogical form of teaching – Learning is seen as the student's development of this inherent basis of knowledge. Tools that support students' problem oriented; simulations and more advanced learning games.

 

The polyphonic form of teaching – Learning is the student's participation in exchange of many different individuals' perception of the world.

Tools that support equal collaboration
