The Flipped Classroom, Formalized Education and the Vernacular of Teaching — Emerging Education Technologies

The Flipped Classroom, Formalized Education and the Vernacular of Teaching — Emerging Education Technologies | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Tyler DeWitt’s FlipCon 2016 Keynote Speech was Inspiring and Fun, and Full of Truths we Need Embrace

When asked what he does for a living, Tyler likes to introduce himself to new people by saying, “I make YouTube videos” … and watch the horrified look on their faces. He clarifies, “I make educational YouTube videos, and a lot of people watch them”. Suddenly their faces light up.

They ask what his channel is. Then they go home and check it out, and they’re surprised again.

14 Web Based Video Tools for Teachers - More Than A Tech | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Engaging students has become increasingly difficult as technology has continued to shape our culture.  Overheads, DVDs, and lecturing just don’t cut it.  This is a generation of students growing up with YouTube, Vimeo, and Khan Academy to name a few.  So many creative, eye grabbing, funny videos to choose from, and all of them are available on a device that fits in their pocket.

Critical Thinking Exercises That Will Blow Your Students’ Minds

Critical Thinking Exercises That Will Blow Your Students’ Minds | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it

Real critical thinking exercises seek truth. It takes daring and independent thought to stray from conventional thinking and discover truths previously unfound. It could be said that critical thinking is at the heart of dispelling great myths about our world and changing the way a society views and acts in their world.

Seems strange to connect deep learning with emojis! Anyway, you can play around on the site typing in messages and seeing how the site converts them to emojis or you can download the app and see if your studemts can communicate with emojis and no words.

Making it: The hands-on movement that impacts our economy, education and culture

Making it: The hands-on movement that impacts our economy, education and culture | Into the Driver's Seat | Scoop.it
Sasha Jaffarove started "Making" — the art of do-it-yourself creating, crafting, hacking or tinkering — as a fifth grader. Creatively combining her love of robotics and cave exploration helped her discover that she could effectively learn on her own while exploring her interests. Even as Sasha struggled to overcome anxiety about tests, she came to see herself as a competent learner in school through hands-on opportunities. By ninth grade, she had built Cave Mapper, a robot that uses lasers to plot the size of a cave.

Omkar Govil, a 9-year-old from San Jose, has developed the O Watch, a kit for kids to design and code their own 3-D printable smartwatches. To date, he has raised $18,000 on Kickstarter. Meanwhile, a father taught himself to use a 3-D printer to create a custom prosthetic hand for his son, made possible by an online community called E-nable that shared its knowledge, 3-D designs and expertise.
