Twenty terrible reasons for lecturing

One reason for lecturers not responding to their everyday experience is, I believe, their ignorance of alternatives. If you can't imagine what else you might do than lecture, then it hardly matters what your everyday experience is telling you. Lecturing is taken for granted. Courses are designed around lecture topics. Knowledge is packaged in our heads in one-hour-lecture-sized chunks. Why is this?

All educators should read this! Great in thinking about presenting any info.Makes me think of all school faculty meetings and how we could do it differently!

Ruby Rennie Panter's curator insight, August 1, 2014 5:20 AM

Not about mobile learning, but even when we start to design an online course we tend to think in terms of lecture-type input first, even though the input may be some kind of online reading material, or (quite commonly) a video of a lecture. The ideas here are pertinent, therefore, in the preparation for syllabus design both for face to face and online.

11 Tips For Students To Manage Their Digital Footprints by Justin Boyle If you’ve scratched your head over suggestions to manage your “digital footprint,” you aren’t the only one.

5 Tips for Classroom Management with Mobile Devices

5 Tips for Classroom Management with Mobile Devices | Integration of technology in the Classroom K-12 | Scoop.it
Classroom management is a challenging skill which I consistently strive to improve on a regular basis. Often, people believe that managing a classroom that has employed technology requires a whole new approach and skill set. However, I have found that many traditional methods of classroom management readily translate to the technological rich schoolroom – with some slight modification.

This is great advice for all change - It is often easier to change one thing and then another and another rather than to face a complete transformation.

Cathy Jeremko's comment, June 29, 2013 1:01 PM
There are some good suggestions here! The idea of changing one element may help the technology coach to encourage use by fellow teachers
stevecarter's curator insight, August 6, 2013 8:50 AM

Master one idea for change - one topic - one inquiry

30 Tips to Leverage The Power of YouTube in Your Teaching ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Integration of technology in the Classroom K-12 | Scoop.it
"Throughout my different experiences working with teachers integrating technology in their classrooms I noticed that several of them still do not know about the powerful features that YouTube has. The fad that YouTube is a mere video hosting platform is still pervasive among many while, in fact, most if not all of the features provided by premium video websites are also found in YouTube and for free."

Saying that it has always been this way, doesn’t count as a legitimate justification to why it should stay that way. Teacher and administrators all over the world are doing amazing things, but some of the things we are still doing, despite all the new solutions, research and ideas out there is, to put it mildly, incredible.

"When you use tablets and other devices, the nature of them requires you to be a teacherpreneur, or one who innovates, selects, and customizes your classroom.

A great way to add interest to the classroom (especially while spring testing is happening) is to introduce or play with a new tool. You need a break of scenery and your students do too!

Sometimes it is what you need to grab their attention as you review something important. "
