Smartphones in the classroom: a teacher's dream or nightmare? - CBC

Smartphones in the classroom: a teacher's dream or nightmare?   - CBC | innovation in learning | Scoop.it
When students return to class this fall, a majority of them will be toting something that teachers themselves are still learning to deal with: a mobile device.

Whether it's a smartphone, tablet or laptop, survey after survey shows more and more — and younger and younger — schoolchildren have their own computing devices and are taking them to class.

A report last year found that just among Grade 4 students, 25 per cent had a cellphone; for high school students, close to 90 per cent have smartphones.

The final quote of this interesting article makes an excellent conclusion: "The most successful teachers are very intentional about how they use the technology, and when they're not using the technology, it's not in front of the kids."

Gert Nilsson's curator insight, September 4, 5:54 AM

Smarta mobiler i klassrummet: lärarens dröm eller mardröm??

I artikeln nämns att ca 25% av de Kanadensiska eleverna i fjärde klass har en mobil. Detta kan jämföras med att ca 86 % av eleverna i åldern 9-12 har egen mobil i Sverige och av dem är 78 % smarta mobiler.

Conduct action research to make a difference to your students and other teachers worldwide. 

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's curator insight, August 14, 11:38 AM

Please do stop testing....

There are a number of things that will remain unchanged, according to some authors, until 2060,....

The change requires time, imagination, in-depth analysis and, ideally, a budget of some sort.

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's curator insight, August 14, 1:10 PM

My hope is that teachers will make learning personalized rather than standardized for everyone.

My hope is you are ready for the challenges as well as the failure.

Making mistakes is a way to learn. It’s not about the disaster; it’s how you respond to the failure.

And finally my hope is that your school is different from most of the current transactional learning models, where the students are consumers of education.

Lastly, I hope for people to be just educational learners fitted in transformational learning approach with opportunity for active, creative and profound personal development.

The Creative Classrooms Lab project (CCL) brought together teachers and policy-makers in eight countries to design, implement and evaluate 1:1 tablet scenarios in 45 schools. The project produced learning scenarios and activities, guidelines and recommendations to help policy-makers and schools to take informed decisions on optimal strategies for implementing 1:1 initiatives in schools and for the effective integration of tablets into teaching and learning. The project, funded by the European Commission’s Lifelong Learning Programme, was coordinated by European Schoolnet, involved 10 partners and ran from April 2013 to May 2015.

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought | innovation in learning | Scoop.it
Grouping students is easy; creating effective student groups is less so.

The following infographic from Mia MacMeekin seeks to provide some ideas to help make group work easier in your classroom. The strength of this particular graphic is in the range of the ideas. The first tip refers teachers to Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal development, which frames student ability in terms of a range: what they can do unassisted, what they can do with the support of a More Knowledgeable Other (MKO), and what they cannot do even with support. This is different for each student, and understanding these ranges for students can help inform grouping decisions, whether you’re using a peer instruction model, ability grouping, or another approach.
