Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 11, 2013 6:18 AM

This new website from Jackie Gerstein explores technology use in social and emotional learning. Quoting from the site "This website has been designed to describe technology activities that facilitate social emotional learing.The links in the menu lead to descriptions of the individual activities. They can be sued within formal and inforrmal educational setting. Even though the focus of the activities are on building and enhacing social emtional learning, many can be connected with content standards related to language arts, oral communication, media literacy, and ISTE's National Education Standards for Students."

The website is very easy to use. There is a menu that provides a list of 14 activities, including Conflict Management Strategies Posters, Book Trailers, and Teach Tech to Grandparents. Most have samples of projects. Not all are relevant to all ages but she does state that she has used some with both elementary and college students.

60 Seconds with Beth Hennessey

She is a former elementary school teacher, now researcher focused on motivation and creativity across cultures.

She has carried out numerous studies showing a powerful link between intrinsic task motivation and creativity of performance. This relation holds for everyone from preschoolers to seasoned research and development scientists. Yet most classrooms and workplaces are set up to kill intrinsic motivation ... with rewards, evaluations, competitions, and the like. At present, She is involved with a number of cross-cultural investigations of this phenomenon and is also collaborating with colleagues at MIT and in Singapore to develop a cutting-edge university curriculum to be used in the new IDC (International Design Center) at Singapore University of Technology and Design.

8 Wonderful Self-development Books for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

8 Wonderful Self-development Books for Teachers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Isaac Asimov once stated that ‘self-education is…the only kind of education there is’. For Albert Einstein ‘ intellectual growth should commence at birth and cease only at death’. The moral behind the quotes is that personal learning, self-directed education, informal learning, self-development…you name it, is a life-long process. It’s an endeavour that is internally motivated and driven by an insatiable desire to explore and understand the world. It is also a mindset, a thinking framework that positions individuals within their social realities.

Innovation Management Class

Innovation Management Class | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
I am teaching an MBA course on innovation management. It is actually a cross between competitive strategy, innovation management, and strategic management. It is all coming together fairly nicely. I am a little concerned about how it will actually work. Here is the in class plan so far… There is a textbook they are reading as background (but I don’t think I like the book). I have supplemented the NASA book, as well.  The infographic is clickable and links work for the first 2/3 of the in class activities and such.

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement

The Role of Metacognition in Learning and Achievement | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Perhaps the most important reason for developing metacognition is that it can improve the application of knowledge, skills, and character qualities in realms beyond the immediate context in which they were learned. This can result in the transfer of competencies across disciplines—important for students preparing for real-life situations where clear-cut divisions of disciplines fall away and one must select competencies from the entire gamut of their experience to effectively apply them to the challenges at hand. Even within academic settings, it is valuable—and often necessary—to apply principles and methods across disciplinary lines.

GoConqr - Changing the way you learn | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

Description by The Scout Project

 

"GoConqr (formerly known as Exam Time) is a learning and networking tool for students and educators. GoConqr allows users to make flashcards, mindmaps, quizzes, notes, and slides to review concepts. Users can then choose to keep these resources private for their own use (or for their class's use), or opt to share these resources to the larger GoConqr community. By sharing resources, other CoConqr users can search and use these resources for their own purposes. GoConqr is designed to help users prepare for standardized tests (such as the SAT, ACT, and GRE) or to study subject-specific facts and content. This web-based tool is also available as a free application for iOS and android devices.

You want to teach with what’s been proven to work. That makes sense.

In the ‘data era’ of education that’s mean research-based instructional strategies to drive data-based teaching, and while there’s a lot to consider here we’d love to explore more deeply, for now we’re just going to take a look at the instructional strategies themselves.

Description by Richard Byrne

 

"The History Project is a great site for collaboratively creating multimedia timelines. The History Project includes an audio recording tool that you can use to talk about events in the timelines that you create. The History Project lets you upload your own pictures or import pictures from social networks to add to the audio recordings contained in the events on your timeline. Of course, like any good time tool, The History Project lets you write in notes, dates, and locations. When you write in a location a Google Map of that location is added to your timeline event. In the video embedded below I provide an overview of how to use The History Project."
