How the iPad is Changing Our Kids' Futures

How the iPad is Changing Our Kids' Futures | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

"Our kids are ‘going digital’ at earlier ages than ever before. It has been well-documented that technology usage among kids is happening essentially from birth and only increases with each year that kids increase their tech-savvy and adeptness at using these engaging devices."

Sweden’s Newest School System Has No Classrooms

Sweden’s Newest School System Has No Classrooms | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

There are collaboration zones, houses-within-houses, and a slew of other features that are designed to foster “curiosity and creativity.” That’s according to Vittra, which runs 30 schools in Sweden. Their most recent school, Telefonplan School (see photos below) in Stockholm, could very well be the school of the future.

I like the list, but was disappointed that it had duplications. It listed sites that I felt were not Web 2.0, or very useful in the classroom.
Ana Cristina Pratas's comment, September 12, 2012 2:29 AM
Hi Ken,

I tend to agree with you, but on the other hand, it's an interesting list to help getting non-tech teachers on board. And as you say, there are many other sites which are terrific yet not included. Thank you for your contribution! :-)

You need to use all of the other features of the iPad like, drawing, adding pictures and sound. Below is an overview of 5 different Note taking apps. Take this weekend to try out all of them."

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning

9 Characteristics Of 21st Century Learning | innovation in learning | Scoop.it
The label of “21st Century learning” is vague, and is an idea that we here at TeachThought like to take a swing at as often as possible, including:

 

 –weighing the magic of technology with its incredible cost and complexity

 

–underscoring the potential for well thought-out instructional design

 

–considering the considerable potential of social media platforms against its apparent divergence from academic learning

 

Some educators seek out the ideal of a 21st century learning environment constantly, while others prefer that we lose the phrase altogether, insisting that learning hasn’t changed, and good learning looks the same whether it’s the 12th or 21st century.

 

At TeachThought, we tend towards the tech-infused model, but do spend time exploring the limits and challenges of technology, the impact of rapid technology change, and carefully considering important questions before diving in head-first. 

 

The following take on 21st century learning developed by TeachThought is notable here because of the absence of technology. There is very little about iPads, social media, 1:10 laptops, or other tech-implementation. In that way, it is closer to the “classic” approach to “good learning” than it is the full-on digital fare we often explore.

 

The size of the circles on the map are intended to convey priority.

20 Things To Know About How Big Data Is Changing Schools

20 Things To Know About How Big Data Is Changing Schools | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

Simply put, technology exists in some for or another across education. With that technology comes a push for understanding. That understanding has taken the form of ‘big data‘ entering the classroom. By ‘big data’ I mean high-tech software and analyzation of all the data being created by technology in education.

In other words, we’re finally trying to all figure out the best way to use technology in education. From measuring test scores to recommending courses, there’s a big push to leverage data. This should come as no surprise as the rapid growth of MOOCs, online colleges, and digital learning have gotten a lot of attention.

 

This infographic from Online Degrees sheds some light on projects currently underway at colleges, the pros and cons of ‘big data’ and a whole lot more. Have you started to use more data in your classroom? Would you take a course recommended by data or by a friend? A tough decision for sure. Looking forward to hearing your answers!

What We Learned: A 1:1 iPad Reflection | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

The reason for moving away from textbooks is that they offer a myopic vision of a world that is ever-changing. Simply viewing a textbook on an iPad does not change or innovate learning, nor does it use the iPad to its full potential. If your plan is to digitize a standard textbook, save your money and renew your textbook licenses.

Being a Digital Native Isn’t Enough

Being a Digital Native Isn’t Enough | innovation in learning | Scoop.it

It is our role as teachers to help students develop the skills to problem solve independently and collaboratively use 21st-century skills while not relying on technology to do all of the thinking for them. Just because these students are digital natives, does not mean that they do not need guidance to navigate the digital world–both in terms of learning how to discern important and relevant information from a large swath of data, and also to be able to inquire and solve problems that take time, thought, and energy.

20 Minuten Online - Schüler werden zu kleinen App-Entwicklern - Bern | innovation in learning | Scoop.it
Bereits 14-Jährige können nun dank der Pädagogischen Hochschule Bern ihre eigenen Apps für Smartphones entwickeln.

...

Die Programmierung funktioniert per Mausklick auf einer speziellen Homepage der PH Bern. Lehrer an den Sekundarschulen setzen diese in ihrem Unterricht ein. In einer benutzerfreundlichen Lernumgebung können die Schüler auf der Homepage ohne Vorwissen vorhandene Musterbeispiele abändern oder eigene Bilder hinzufügen. Dabei erlernen sie die wichtigsten Programmiertechniken. Die App kann danach auf dem Smartphone installiert und angewendet werden. Der Clou: Es braucht nicht einmal einen Computer. «Die Anwendung ist webbasiert und Apps können sogar auf Smartphones oder Tablets erstellt werden.»
