How to Get the Most Out of Student-Owned Devices in Any Classroom

How to Get the Most Out of Student-Owned Devices in Any Classroom | Language in technology | Scoop.it

Technical issues with devices can be a headache, so setting some ground rules for device management helps mitigate some hiccups. Mills recommends making it clear that it is students’ responsibility to bring their device to school charged and ready to go. Designating a spot on student desks or tables where devices go when they aren’t being used for a specific assignment is also a great way to deter students from succumbing to distraction.

Lectures Didn't Work in 1350—and They Still Don't Work Today

Lectures Didn't Work in 1350—and They Still Don't Work Today | Language in technology | Scoop.it

It’s all about engagement. I’ve heard things like a child’s attention span, in minutes, is equal to their age in years. That’s so not true. If children are engaged in something, they’ll spend hours on it. We have a 6-year-old grandchild who will spend hours working on Legos or Tinkertoys because she’s got something in her mind that she wants to build, and she’ll do it. If children aren’t paying attention, it’s not because of a decreased attention span—it’s because they aren’t given tasks that honor their dominant ways of learning.

Though grammar skills are a fundamental step in understanding, writing and reading the English language, grammar is not always a particularly fun arena to study. Faced with long lists of grammar rules and grammar rule exceptions to memorize, it’s no wonder so many of us throw in the towel on mastering technical English early in school.

Blended Learning Implementation Guide

Blended learning means rethinking how class is structured, how time is used, and how limited resources are allocated. Compared to high-access environments, which simply provide devices for every student, blended learning includes an intentional shift to online instructional delivery for a portion of the day in order to boost learning and productivity. Productivity in this sense includes improvements to teacher access of data and its potential to inform instruction. Greater student productivity includes less time wasted on skills already mastered. Increased learning opportunities and improved student outcomes enhance overall system productivity.

We should have thought about restructing classrooms and the relationship we have with learning as teachers and learners.

robyns tut's curator insight, September 27, 2013 6:01 PM

The integration of technology and teaching is completely a good idea in my opinion. Especially given that we are living in a digital age, where learners have access to a lot of technical devices, which aim at improving and making life efficient. Thus by building curricula that welcomes the use of technology inside the classroom, will change the face of education - hopefully for the better. However my concern is the introduction of a 'customised' form of learning. Education is supposed to be unified experience where learners access information at the same time and at the same pace. It seems unfair that because there wil be fast learners in a class, that means they have to get to the end of the syllabus quicker than others. Everyone should receive attention in a similar manner, whether they understand the work or not. Teaching should not favour one person over the other.

10 Ways To Use Technology To Teach Writing

10 Ways To Use Technology To Teach Writing | Language in technology | Scoop.it

Both high-tech innovations for learning and the inability of many schoolchildren to write well have been major talking points in educational circles for quite some time, but oddly enough, one may offer a solution to helping remedy the other.

 

There are a variety of tech tools and methods out there for teaching writing that can make the process easier and more fun for both teachers and students. While not every high-tech way of teaching writing will work for every class or every student, there’s enough variety that there’s bound to be something for everyone.

 

Here are a few tech-focused ways to help students learn grammar, essay-writing, and, most importantly, why good writing is so important to their futures.
