5 ways to gamify writing in the classroom

5 ways to gamify writing in the classroom | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

"Believe it or not, writing is a natural fit for gamification techniques.

 

You’ve surely noticed how your class gets engaged as soon as you introduce a game into the teaching process. The students get competitive, but that’s a healthy competition you want to nurture."

How to Do Adaptive Learning Right

How to Do Adaptive Learning Right | innovation in learning | Scoop.it
Technologists who have built successful systems in other domains—and who frequently view education as just another market in which to apply their expertise—often doom their project to fail at the start, by adopting a narrow and outdated educational model.

Madelline Cárcamo's curator insight, June 13, 7:08 PM

Aunque este artículo habla de diferentes temas en relación a la virtualidad, menciona algo que en lo personal considero es algo que todo docente virtual debe poseer.  Conocer a cada uno de sus estudiantes, no por esto me refiero a tener un relación personal con los participantes; conocerlos significa, el ritmo de aprendizaje que cada uno de ellos posee y su manera particular de aprender.  Si un docente lograr desarrollar estás habilidades, puede tener un porcentaje alto de éxito en el desarrollo de su curso virtual.

Stewart-Marshall's curator insight, June 14, 1:57 PM
Online teaching is different in so many ways. Traditional teachers now have to learn new ways of approaching their teaching methodologies, and also learn new practices in order to be successful at what they do. In this article you will discover few great insights on how to better yourself when you want to step up into this “new game”.

Effective teachers for all classrooms? It’s time for teacherpreneurs - Global Education & Skills Forum

Effective teachers for all classrooms? It’s time for teacherpreneurs - Global Education & Skills Forum | innovation in learning | Scoop.it
Effective teachers for all classrooms? It’s time for teacherpreneurs


Education conversations around the globe are focused on how to recruit, evaluate, and develop effective teachers. And for good reason. A steady drip of empirical evidence has shown that teachers are the most crucial in-school factor in student learning.

But in many cases education policy leaders have fixated on firing bad teachers and recruiting better ones. They have paid far less attention to spreading the expertise of the many effective teachers already teaching—or to providing them with opportunities to lead without leaving their classrooms and profession.

The Teacherpreneur

Enter the teacherpreneur—who teaches students regularly but has the time, space, and reward to incubate and execute his or her own ideas. Imagine a public school teacher who has the respect (and income potential) of an endowed chair at a research university and whose pedagogical and policy expertise drives innovative, collaborative projects that spread effective teaching practices.

There are at least six sound reasons for this bold brand of teacher leadership:

Researchers have proven that students learn more when their teachers collaborate in deep and authentic ways;
Principals alone cannot address demands of 21st-century learning and accountability;
Top-performing nations invest in teachers as leaders;
The most effective teacher evaluation systems are driven by master teachers;
Teachers trust their teaching colleagues more than anyone else to help them improve their practice; and
Large percentages of teachers are interested in leading without leaving the classroom.

The Future of Learning — Learning {Re}imagined | #LEARNing2LEARN #ModernEDU 

The Future of Learning - Learning {Re}imagined - Medium
It’s as if we agreed that the purpose of education was simply content distribution and testing, and therefore we don’t really need skilled teachers. We could actually offload that to technology.


In my opinion, that’s wrong. I think there’s much more to teaching and learning than that and I think we should allow much more freedom in the say that technology is used in the classroom and we should be able to use technology to amplify our ability to learn and our ability to teach rather than effectively imprison us.

 

For example, in testing, in examinations, in 2016 why are students not allowed to take their computer connected to the internet into the examination room? Why are they not allowed to share their answers with their colleagues? Why are they not allowed to phone their mother or phone a subject specialist? Why do we suddenly pretend that the twenty-first century never happened when a child enters an examination room?

8 digital skills we must teach our children

8 digital skills we must teach our children | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

The way children use technology is very different from adults. This gap makes it difficult for parents and educators to fully understand the risks and threats that children could face online. As a result, adults may feel unable to advise children on the safe and responsible use of digital technologies. Likewise, this gap gives rise to different perspectives of what is considered acceptable behaviour.
