Does (the Use of)Twitter Improve Education?

Does (the Use of)Twitter Improve Education? | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

"There has been post after post acknowledging how educators love Twitter while also encouraging others to use it themselves. With that though comes skeptics (as there should be), questioning whether the use of Twitter is beneficial to educators. I have thought about that question a lot and I can give a definitive answer: yes and no ( I am 100% certain of this).

 

So to prove this, we have to look at a few things. First off, we have to look at how educators are using Twitter. Simply signing up for Twitter doesn’t improve anything in your classroom (similar to the notion that having a Twitter account will make people do inappropriate things and cyberbully). It all comes down to the use of it. I offer two scenarios in my own use of Twitter below."

Tutkija: Multitaskaaminen on mahdotonta – ihminen kuormittuu ja työn tulos heikkenee

Multitaskaaminen eli usean asian samanaikainen tekeminen on taito, jota vaaditaan työelämässä. Vaatimus on mahdoton, väittää kehittämispäällikkö Teppo Valtonen Työterveyslaitokselta.

The First 5s with iPads

The First 5s with iPads | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

With the start of school approaching and the looming expectation of incorporating iPads into the curriculum becoming a reality, the big question many educators are asking is: "Where should I begin?" Last year, I wrote about 5 Steps for the First 5 Days. However, what about the five days after that?

It can seem daunting to envision a year's worth of activities with iPads, but when taken in small chunks, it doesn't need to be intimidating. Taking a note from Alan November's talks about the #1st5days, consider what is possible in the first five hours, days, and weeks of school.

En tiedä onko tästä ollut jo keskustelua, ajatuksia?

Australialainen koululainen Taj Pabari leikki vuosi sitten koulussa 3d-tulostimella. Tehtävänä oli tulostaa kaksi levyä ja liittää ne yhteen, mutta Pabari päättikin tuottaa levyjen väliin vähän sisältöä.

The list is totally focused on digital technologies. I think clouds are a good thing from a poetic perspective. They are helpful when it comes to saving my work, as well. We have too many people and teachers who think that clouds are instrumental and digital only.

Wow! How cool is this? While the price point is still well out of my budget, it is certainly more affordable than many of its competitors, the biggest one being MakerBot. I think what appeals to me is that Dremel is a well-known brand associated with quality and with providing tools that are user-friendly in the creative arena. So, I have a feeling that this new tool will certainly be reaching for that same quality and user experience.  Time will tell if it truly can compete with other 3D printers on the market in regards to ease of use as well as the quality of the final output products. 

 

Dremel, if you are reading this, I'm more than happy to be a reviewer/tester for this product! ;-)

Väitös: 19.9.: Tieto- ja viestintätekniikan opetus kaipaa yhtenäisiä oppimateriaaleja (Ekonoja) — Jyväskylän yliopisto

Väitös: 19.9.: Tieto- ja viestintätekniikan opetus kaipaa yhtenäisiä oppimateriaaleja (Ekonoja) — Jyväskylän yliopisto | Leadership Think Tank | Scoop.it

Tieto- ja viestintätekniikkaa (TVT) opetetaan suomalaisissa yläkouluissa harvoin valmiiden yhtenäisten oppimateriaalien avulla. Hyvin usein opettajat kokoavat materiaalit itse eri lähteistä. Ekonojan tutkimuksen mukaan kuitenkin myös TVT:n opetuksessa valmiista oppimateriaaleista on monenlaista hyötyä sekä opettajille että oppilaille. Ne muun muassa helpottavat opettajien tuntien suunnittelua. Oppilaat puolestaan hyötyvät mm. monipuolisista harjoitustehtävistä. Materiaalien tuottaminen ei saisikaan jäädä TVT:ssä pelkästään opettajien itse tehtäväksi.
