Wonderful ways to engage students to show what they know. My students love many of these tools and we look forward to exploring more.
WEAC's curator insight, April 28, 9:51 AM

"With a myriad of web tools and apps available to teachers, it’s sometimes mind-boggling trying to identify which are the most effective for the classroom. But if you’re looking for some innovative ways to showcase student work, here’s an awesome visual collection of resources spanning 11 categories—audio recordings, collages, comics, posters, slides, digital books, narrated slideshows, movies, animations, screen casts and study aids—to help get you started!"

The Maker Movement in K-12 Education: A Guide to Emerging Research - EdWeek

The Maker Movement in K-12 Education: A Guide to Emerging Research - EdWeek | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

"New trends in K-12 ed tech are as hot—or as under-researched—as "Maker" education.

The term generally refers to using a wide variety of hands-on activities (such as building, computer programming, and sewing) to support academic learning and the development of a mindset that values playfulness and experimentation, growth and iteration, and collaboration and community. 

Typically, "Making" involves attempting to solve a particular problem, creating a physical or digital artifact, and sharing that product with a larger audience. Often, such work is guided by the notion that process is more important than results.

The Maker Movement has its roots outside of school, in institutions such as science museums and in the informal activities that everyday people have taken part in for generations. It began exploding about a decade ago, thanks in large part to the enthusiastic audience of Make magazine and the popularity of public events such as Maker Faires (the most well-known of which was hosted by President Barack Obama at the White House in 2014.) The rise of cheap digital tools, including microcontroller platforms such as Arduino and rapid-prototyping tools such as 3-D printers, has in recent years lent the movement a decidedly techie flavor.

Efforts to bring Making and "Maker spaces" into K-12 schools are still "nascent," said Erica Halverson, an associate professor of curriculum and instruction at the University of Wisconsin-Madison and a leading researcher into Maker education.

But that's changing fast."

9 educational technology trends that will rule in 2016 | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

"Nowadays, technology has changed the world, be it the technology in education or technology in any sector of the economy. It surely has changed the global platform. You can stay connected to each other, whether you are near or far away. Technology has enhanced the social media impacts on our lives. It looks so hard to imagine life without technology, there is no charm in life without technology, so by summing up it becomes the essential part of our life and need of the world as well."

Social Learning Vs Informal Learning: Can You Tell The Difference?

Social Learning Vs Informal Learning: Can You Tell The Difference? | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

Learning can happen anytime, anywhere, with those around us serving as invaluable sources of inspiration, experience, and knowledge. In many respects, the world is our teacher, but we must be aware of how to tap into the educational opportunities it can offer. Both social and informal learning models are rooted in this ideology.

Why Is A Virtual Classroom Better Than A Real One? - eLearning Industry

Why Is A Virtual Classroom Better Than A Real One? - eLearning Industry | innovation in learning | Scoop.it
On the whole, modern eLearning systems should provide an opportunity to share both knowledge and experience. In addition, online courses should be individualized, but still offer a way to give and receive feedback. There should also be a track record of everybody’s progress and achievements. All these facilities make modern eLearning highly effective, and demonstrate the advantages of a virtual classroom over a traditional one.

Building an Educational App? Read This First (EdSurge News)

Building an Educational App? Read This First (EdSurge News) | innovation in learning | Scoop.it
Over the next four years, nearly a billion students will enter middle and high school, and if recent projections are accurate, most of them will have a smartphone in their pocket. These students will decide what apps they use and when they use them, and could potentially take large parts of their education into their own hands.

Despite this potential, there are few break-out apps that cater directly to students. The education app charts are led by games and classroom tools, and the largest student-focused apps—Duolingo, Quizlet, and recently PhotoMath—only serve a thin slice of student needs, leaving huge potential for new entrants.

We’ve spent the last two years at Socratic studying how students learn with the Internet. In hopes of inspiring the development of more student-focused apps, we’d like to share some of our insights about how students use their phones while studying today.

Why Curriculum Should Function More Like A Game | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

"The structure of formal learning in most classrooms is a basic sequence of activity>lesson>unit, with a culminating assessment of some sort. Whether this assessment is a performance, a project or a traditional multiple-choice and short response exam, its function is the same: to evaluate understanding of a given set of standards."
