The Generation That Doesn't Remember Life Before Smartphones

The Generation That Doesn't Remember Life Before Smartphones | Integrating Technology in The Classroom | Scoop.it

This generation is the first for whom the freedom to express every impulse to the entire world is as easy as it used to be to open your mouth and talk to a friend. How does all that change the monotony and joy and pain and wonder and turmoil that is the average teenager's life? What is it like?

Interesting in that these kids (albeit only those in this article) say that technology and information isn't overwhelming because they grew up in it. I can think of a new horror movie called, "Kids No Tech". Can you imagine the horror and pain of having to live where there is no internet? A world where there is no one to quantify and validate your existence? Now that would be overwhelming for many of this generation. Times are changin'. I'm glad I was born when I was.

What is digital fluency?

What is digital fluency? | Integrating Technology in The Classroom | Scoop.it
Crucially, the outcome of being digitally fluent relates to issues of responsibility, equity and access. We all have the right to fully participate in a digitally-enabled education system and in an increasingly digitised society. If we work with fluency in the way we use technologies, we are able to keep ourselves safe online and take full advantage of life chance opportunities such as being able to apply for work, manage our finances, or be part of our local community

Teaching students to create their own learning is every bit as important as teaching subject knowledge, arguably, more so.
Marta Botella's curator insight, November 9, 2015 6:52 AM

En pleno Siglo XXI las competencias digitales se han convertido en un requisito indispensable para la sociedad, tanto en el trabajo como en el día a día de las personas. Por ello se pide el reconocimiento de las competencias digitales como habilidades básicas esenciales.

Los maestros deben fomentar las competencias digitales en sus alumnos con el fin de formar ciudadanos capaces de resolver toda clase de problemas con eficacia y creatividad.

Yesterday we published the article, “Coding for the Common Core – Apps for Integrating Coding With Math and ELA“, in which we shared numerous programmable robots and insights and lesson plans that offer ideas for how they can be used on classrooms teaching various subjects.

Today, we share 15 different iPad apps (many of them are free!) that can help teach coding skills while reinforcing related skills like mathematics, logic, reading, and more! These apps are geared toward students of elementary through middle schools ages.

A Taxonomy of Reflection: A Model for Critical Thinking

A Taxonomy of Reflection: A Model for Critical Thinking | Integrating Technology in The Classroom | Scoop.it

Over the last few years I've led many teachers and administrators on classroom walkthroughs designed to foster a collegial conversation about teaching and learning. The walkthroughs served as roving Socratic seminars and a catalyst for reflection. But reflection can be a challenging endeavor. It's not something that's fostered in school - typically someone else tells you how you're doing!

The end of ‘just Google it’: Why students need to be digitally literate

The end of ‘just Google it’: Why students need to be digitally literate | Integrating Technology in The Classroom | Scoop.it
With so much information readily available in a range of multimodal formats, from text to multimedia, apps and social networking, we need to blend technological learning and critical literacy together so that students can critically appraise the information that they are accessing. Teaching digital literacy is something that can be embedded into regular teaching in all subjects at all stages of education. To do that, it needs to be explicitly taught and reinforced by every teacher in every subject in a way that is appropriate for students.
