QR Codes in the Classroom

QR Codes in the Classroom | Leader of Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Quick response (QR) codes are easy to create and have many uses in the classroom. With the posting of a QR code, you can lead students to information by just using their computer's or mobile device's...

Via Catherine Smyth
Ness Crouch's insight:

There are many affordances for QR codes in history. Pose an historical inquiry question and get students to gather clues (evidence) using primary sources embedded with a QR code at a museum, local community, school etc. Or, get primary students to create their own QR codes for artefacts. This could engage students in historical inquiry and the analysis and use of primary and secondary sources.

5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers

5 Things Students Expect From Their Teachers | Leader of Pedagogy | Scoop.it

Is there "a difference between a 'student' and a 'learner,' between a 'teacher' and an 'educator.'
Teachers want their students to be responsible and curious. They expect their students to follow class rules and do their homework. But what about the reverse? What do students want from their teachers?"

Some wonderful questions that I look forward to answering.

Allan Shaw's curator insight, August 19, 2013 1:36 AM

I consider points two and three absolutely necessary! Points one, four and five are more difficult to maintain for six hours per day each day of the school year for all students.

Beatriz Montesinos's curator insight, August 20, 2013 12:42 PM

¿Hay diferencia entre "alumno" y "aprendiz" y entre "profesor" y "educador"?

Educational Leadership:Technology-Rich Learning:Students First, Not Stuff

Educational Leadership:Technology-Rich Learning:Students First, Not Stuff | Leader of Pedagogy | Scoop.it
Most of us went into teaching understanding that school was pretty much the only education game in town, the place where kids came to get information, where, at the end of the day, we were responsible for disseminating the knowledge, we assessed whether our students got it, and we stamped it "an education." For that vast majority of kids (and for us, too) who attended a brick-and-mortar school, that's been the unbending, monolithic vision of schooling for 150 years.

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
Ness Crouch's insight:

Will Richardson's article is insightful and tick many boxes for teachers. I started teaching 13 years ago and have been astounded at the pace of change in the technological side of education. Maintaining an understanding of technology and the tools related with it is a constant learning experience, and that's just keeping up with the learners in my classroom. To get ahead of them is the challenge. There are so many ways of learning now, the traditional book, library, expert and the technological, social media, video conference, e-books and more. How do we show our students how to use these new learning tools in an efficient and safe way? 

 

Policy makers must keep up with these changes. Technology policies should be reviewed at least annually to ensure they have not fallen behind the multimodal learning race. We need to ensure that we put learners first. When they leave our schools they MUST be able to use technology to be effective in the workforce. Teachers MUST help them learn what they need therefore we MUST learn about new technologies.
