6 Steps to Media Creation in the Classroom - Daily Genius

6 Steps to Media Creation in the Classroom - Daily Genius | Lanzamiento de "El Catalejo Humanista" | Scoop.it
As we prepare students for the unknown work environment of the future, it is important that we, as teachers, work with them to develop a foundation of skills that will help them become successful in avenues beyond our school’s walls. While we may not know exactly what the future skills in the workplace may be, we can foster this particular skill set in our current classrooms. According to a report by The Economist Intelligence Unit, employers desire workers with an increasingly demanding skill set including: problem-solving, digital literacy, leadership and creativity. To that end, creating media content in our classrooms can foster all of these skills. By having our students create content using voice, images, video, or any combination of the three, we are allowing them the opportunity to express themselves in ways that may not be possible in a written assignment, while developing the skills necessary for the future.

What Exactly Is Blended Learning?

What Exactly Is Blended Learning? | Lanzamiento de "El Catalejo Humanista" | Scoop.it

"Blended education. Hybrid learning. Flipping the classroom. Whatever one chooses to call it, this method of learning–which combines classroom and online education–is going places and making headlines along the way. While education experts continue to debate the efficacy of hybrid learning, its very existence has challenged them to re-evaluate not just technology’s place in (and out of) the classroom, but also how to reach and teach students more effectively. That alone is one of the major benefits of blended learning."

The Flipped Classroom Defined

The Flipped Classroom Defined | Lanzamiento de "El Catalejo Humanista" | Scoop.it

"Along with the challenge of being a guide to the side comes the challenge for the teacher to develop new skills in facilitation. In the flipped classroom, students are at the center of knowledge obtainment. They are linked to the process in engaged activities as they are asked to perform authentic task. These new instructional strategies, are to include being able to facilitate the learning process without influencing student choices. To work along side of the student and being able to oversee the growth and development of students. Teachers who facilitate learning check student understanding throughout a unit of study, so that students can learn how they are contributing clearly and definitively to their own learning.


The second idea behind flipping a classroom is to reduce the amount of time spent in class on lecturing, and opening up more class time for the use of active learning strategies. These active learning strategies should be based on effective highly engaging real life applications that promote student interaction. Student interaction in the classroom should focus primarily on understanding and application than on recall of facts, while not sacrificing presentation of the factual base."

It is interesting that we think there are no economic interests at play in the e-learning world. There are and they are significant. It does not mean we don't use various digital technologies, but let us make sure we ask questions and challenge their usages when needed.

Does Tech Hold Back Educators?

Does Tech Hold Back Educators? | Lanzamiento de "El Catalejo Humanista" | Scoop.it

Teaching is not easy. It is a profession that requires educators to be relevant. Being relevant doesn’t come with age. Just the opposite occurs, and it requires work to keep up. Teaching is not a profession that enables one to stop learning after the degree is earned and the job is secured. Technology is moving us all too fast for anyone to sit back relying on old methods and tools.

The Geography of Language

"Over the course of human history, thousands of languages have developed from what was once a much smaller number. How did we end up with so many? And how do we keep track of them all? Alex Gendler explains how linguists group languages into language families, demonstrating how these linguistic trees give us crucial insights into the past."

Chris Plummer's curator insight, January 11, 2015 11:46 PM

Summary- This video explains how so many languages came to be and why. By the early existence of human there was a such smaller variety of languages. Tribes that spoke one language would often split in search of new recourses. Searching tribe would develop in many new different ways than the original tribe. new foods, land, and other elements created a radically different language than the original. 

 

Insight- In unit 3 we study language as a big element of out chapter. One key question in chapter 6 was why are languages distributed the way they are. It is obvious from the video that languages are distributed they way they are is because of the breaking up from people which forced people to develop differently thus creating a different language. As this process continues, there become more and more branches of a language family.

Un buen artículo.

 

Tiene razón: Los niños y jóvenes pueden pasar horas con un vídeo-juego a pesar de que fallarán el 80% de las ocasiones y "perseverarán con  una determinación casi irracional", algo de esta perseverancia y determinación sería útil en el salón de clases.

 

Sin embargo, las críticas a su propuesta de usar juegos en la clase también tienen sentido:

"¿Qué pasará el próximo año cuando asistan a una nueva clase y se den cuenta que la escuela es trabajo y no 'juego y diversión'? Los estás preparando para una decepción."

 

Un interesante debate.

The 6-step guide to flipping your classroom - Daily Genius | Lanzamiento de "El Catalejo Humanista" | Scoop.it
It’s one of the most talked-about trends in education right now. Right behind the iPad and Common Core. Flipping your classroom is a trend that doesn’t seem to be going away any time soon. That’s great, because it offers a lot of advantages for your classroom regardless of your students’ age or what subject matter you’re presenting in your classroom. If you’re new to the concept, flipping your classroom can feel a little bit overwhelming: How much should I switch around? What is best for the classroom vs at home? Why am I doing this again anyway?

This could be nice to plan or summarise a story, for reading or listening comprehension with students. Or for reviewing the stages of a task, or process (perhaps a process, for passive grammar). In teacher training it could be an option for self-observation, reviewing the stages of a lesson and how it went.
