5 Simple Ways To Inspire Innovation In Learning

5 Simple Ways To Inspire Innovation In Learning | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

How can we make our classrooms more engaging, creating "spaces that help students connect, get inspired, and achieve deeper learning and better results."

This post provides five simple ideas. Each is followed with short descriptions. Three are listed below:

* Try out new teaching techniques, don't just read about them.

* Try out technology tools that allow you to work side by side with your students rather than positioned next to the board.

* Explore new learning opportunities by accessing a web portal and connecting with another classroom studying the same topic.

MathChat App Allows Students to Collaborate on Math Homework ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

MathChat App Allows Students to Collaborate on Math Homework ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it
MathChat is an interesting new iPad  app that I discovered recently. As its name indicate, MathChat is an app that allows students to collaborate and work together on math problems.  This collaboration takes place in group chats where members get to exchange messages, use pointers to show how to solve a problem, or draw and add arrows to provide illustration and guidance on Math concepts. This collaborative feature of MathChat resembles to a great extent the work Whiteboard apps do.

Oliver Durrer's curator insight, October 23, 11:38 AM

Decision making is an essential and key part of entrepreneurship. To optimize and systematize the decision-making process within your company is one element. Another crucial success factor for your business is to understand how your customers make decisions. Sharp consumer and customer insight is at the basis of any successful enterprise. The cultural component, respectively the value framework (individual vs. collective, spiritual vs. material, etc.) as well as the timeframe (linear vs. circular) your consumers and customers embody, guide their decisions. You have to embrace this in order to not only gain customers but also delight them and turn them into ambassadors of your products and services.
