The Top 10 iPad Apps for Special Education -- THE Journal

The Top 10 iPad Apps for Special Education -- THE Journal | K - 12 education | Scoop.it

"The iPad takeover of public education isn’t just confined to the mainstream classroom: Special needs educators, too, are finding that  iPads can be a vital tool to support independence. What sets the iPad apart from other devices is the simple and visually robust user interface that can be used by almost everyone. It’s also a highly customizable device that can be set up with applications and assistive features to support a variety of special needs."

I love these lists!

Marianne Gunn's curator insight, December 16, 2013 1:46 AM

While I do believe these apps could use a bit more work and cost a little less I am happy to see technology in special education classrooms. In many cases children with special needs cam work better with computers than they do with people.

This version of Bloom's Taxonomy has been extended with a sharing component for Bloom's Digital Taxonomy and is listed in the higher order thinking skills. The functional level of sharing is publicly sharing, publishing and broadcasting.

Along with this printable version of Bloom's Taxonomy you will also find links to five resources. Four of these look at Bloom's (in a variety of ways) and one is a research paper that looks at sustainable innovation in teacher practice.

Dr. Mike Ribble "coined the nine elements of digital citizenship" and many use it as a base to help teach these skills.

15 Questions To Help Students Respond To New Ideas

15 Questions To Help Students Respond To New Ideas | K - 12 education | Scoop.it
"It just might be that in a society where information is abundant, thinking habits are more important than knowledge. Somewhere beneath wisdom and above the “things” a student knows.Laws of economics say that scarcity increases value. It’s no longer information that’s scarce, but rather meaningful response to that information. Thought.And thought has a source–a complex set of processes, background knowledge, and schema that we can, as educators think of as cognitive habits. And if they’re habits, well, that means they’re probably something we can practice at, doesn’t it?"
Via Beth Dichter, Monty Bell

Beth Dichter's curator insight, September 8, 10:09 PM

We want our students to demonstrate that they know how to think, to understand that they have the ability to ask questions and find answers, answers that may not be available through Google (esp. if we are asking them to research). In short, we want them to use metacognitive skills.

But how do we teach them these skils? The image above, from teachthought, provides 15 questions that may help students create the habits that students need to learn. Below are three of the questions. Click through to the post for the entire list, as well as some great discussion.

* Is this idea important to me? To others? Why or why not?

* Is there a “part” of this new idea I can take and “pivot”? Create something new and fresh?

* What real-world models–examples–relate to this that can help me understand this further?

Consider posting these questions in your classroom and using them when appropriate with students.

Denver Leigh Watson, M.Ed, LDTC's curator insight, October 31, 1:28 AM

We often think of assessment in a formal, summative sense; however, the art of formative evaluation is critical to master in order to assess how well students are grasping concepts.  Jumping past basic recall and simple predictions, formative assessments are great tools for establishing where  personal connections have been made in a child's learning process. While we are reaching for the application and synthesis of knowledge, we need to break free from multiple choice bubbles and encourage students to travel deeper into their learning.

In addition to using Lego for maths, I've taken my sons (extensive) Lego collection into History and Society & Culture to have the students (high school) demonstrate their understanding of concepts such as globalisation, communism, nationalism, capitalism. Worked really well and classes sooo happy. 

 

Having been broken up into groups and given a concept each, They created cities or environments demonstrating the concept then talked the rest of the class through.

Is Collaboration Limited by Organizational Structure?

Is Collaboration Limited by Organizational Structure? | K - 12 education | Scoop.it
Organizational design has a huge impact on decision-making and collaboration, and both reflects, and often creates, the level of collaboration and autonomy with and amongst the workforce. Culture may eat strategy for lunch but decision-making, reporting and budgeting structures can either birth or strangle both culture and strategy with both hands tied behind its back.At this stage we have four primary organizational models along a continuum from command and control to cooperative and anarchic. From GM to Valve we might call it, with a Basecamp and a Zappos thrown in to complete the picture. Each has strengths and weaknesses.
