Although a US article (where testing is rampant) some points to consider by my friend Peter Dewitt.
Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 5, 2013 8:07 PM

I watched a digital Ken Robinson presentation several years ago. He made a passing reference to using technology, but the bulk of his presentation discussed the stamping out of creativity in children as we diagnose and medicate more of them in the age of standardized tests. I mention the technology, because one person took that as being the thesis in the presentation and not the stamping out of creativity.

Chris Wejr's comment, April 7, 2013 11:32 PM
Yes, I think he touched more on it in his RSA video... using a map of the US.

This page gathers all of the Bloomin' Apps projects in one place!


Each of the images has clickable hotspots and includes suggestions for
iPad, Google, Android, and Web 2.0 applications
to support each of the levels of Bloom's Revised Taxonomy.

The use of the triangle shape for Bloomin' apps projects was not used
 to help clear up the misunderstanding that the levels are hierarchical and
the top levels only make up a tiny portion of the cognitive processes.

Stop Telling Your Students To "Pay attention!" | Brain Based Learning | Brain Based Teaching | Articles From Jensen Learning | Learning Leaders | Scoop.it

What happens when you tell your students to "pay attention!" More than you may think. This post explores what goes on in the brain and ways the brain pays attention. Research is shared as well as what you can do in your classroom immediately as well what you can do in the long term.
Short term solutions include "using prediction; using the brief pause and chunk technique; priming the learning with small hints, appetizers and teasers" and more.

"Instead of saying to students, “Pay attention!” what you really want to say is, “Suppress interesting things!” Why? Students already DO pay attention."  The point being, prolonged attention paying is a learned skill, practiced.  Intersperse teaching with stand-up breaks, quick physical activity.  Create "hooks' for attention - previews - and offer rewards - like homework free pass this month - for students who get it right; helps them be invested in topic
