With the focus of PYP classrooms being on inquiry and concept based learning, it's not surprise that technology goes together with this type of learning.  This infographic really illustrates how technology enhances each of these thinking skills which are essential in the PYP>

Carla Holmes's insight:

What an intersting idea. Sorting apps by the thinking they encourage. It is worth reading more about the new Blooms taxononmy. I htink I agree with some of the newer research that is exploring the idea that thinking is not linear or hierachical.

Free Technology for Teachers: Five Essential Google Drive Skills For Teachers | Inquiry based learning | Scoop.it

"This school year I've worked with a few school districts that are using Google Apps for Education for the first time. A lot of what I have done with those school districts is help to get the teachers acclimated to using Google Drive. When I sat down to plan an upcoming Google Drive training session I thought about some of the essential Google Drive skills that teachers need in addition to creating documents, presentations, and spreadsheets. Here are five essential Google Drive skills I think teachers need."

iPad Apps for Math Intervention

iPad Apps for Math Intervention | Inquiry based learning | Scoop.it

"Over the past few months I’ve been experimenting with guided math strategies in my classroom. One station in my classroom has been dubbed as the technology table. This table has been primarily used to differentiate instruction to improve students’ understanding of mathematical concepts. I’ve been using the tech table for the past few months with great success. There are five iPad apps that are used at this table. Unlike many math apps that offer only demo versions, I’ve found the below apps to be useful in the classroom."

Look around at any restaurant or mall and it’s easy to see: adults are always connected to their mobile devices. But as this technology becomes even more ingrained in our lives, what can we expect for our children? Studies show that – used wisely – technology can be an important part of their everyday lives as well.

 

Check out the infographic below to see how mobile technology is integrated into the lives of even the youngest kids.

  Mobile technology is still so new, in education. It is everywhere in our daily lives, but what are the effects on children's learning skills? How does it affect their social attitudes and physical growth? The Pros and Cons are still being studied and determined. Tell me what you think.
