From Toy to Tool: How to Develop Smart Tablet Habits in Class

From Toy to Tool: How to Develop Smart Tablet Habits in Class | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it
Managing tablets as learning tools in the classroom is not easy, especially when many kids use them largely as toys outside of school, if they have access to a tablet in their home environment.

and I liked the comment at the end that goes, "Be patient and take small steps.  It does not all have to happen at once." Wise to follow it :)

What It Means To Teach

What It Means To Teach | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it
eaching means…

…to help another person understand.

…to help another person understand why something is worth understanding.

…to help another person responsibly use what they know.

…to artfully connect students and content in authentic contexts.

…to cause change.

…to cognitively agitate.

…that relationships with children are the bedrock for everything else.

…to be able to see individual faces, needs, opportunities, and affections where others see a classroom of students.

…that you should always know the difference between what you taught and what they learned.

…to model curiosity.

…that students will likely never forget you (or that one thing you said, the time you lost your temper, how you made them feel, etc.)

…to know what it actually means to “understand.”

…to create a need for students to reorganize and repack their intellectual baggage.

…to self-critique your own biases, blind spots, and other “broken perceptions”

…to make dozens of crucial decisions on the fly not per day or class but per minute.

…that you’re going to be needed every second of every day in some important way.

…to adjust the timing, general ‘form’, and complexity of a given content so that it seems ‘just in time, just enough, and just for me’ for each student.

…to help students play with complex ideas in pursuit of self-knowledge and personal change.

…to be able to create an awesome lesson plan and unit–and to know when and why to ditch that plan and unit.

…to know the difference between teaching content and teaching thought.

…that you need to know your content well enough to teach any concept, skill, or standard within it 20+ different ways.

…that you’re going to work closely with people that will think differently than you, and learning to bridge those gaps with diplomacy could make or break your happiness

…to help students transfer understanding of academic content to authentic circumstances.

…to accept certain failure.

…to be a lifelong learner yourself.

…to disrupt social imbalances, inequities, and knowledge and skill gaps

…to confront your own weaknesses (technology, pedagogy, content, collaboration, organization, communication, etc.)

…to really, truly change the world (for the better or the worse).

…that you’re going to need a lot of help from everyone.

…to operate under unclear terms for success.

…to explain, model, and connect.

…to change, change, change.

…that in terms of sheer mathematical probability, you’re not going to be teaching for more than five years (if you’ve already passed that, congratulations!)

…that your ‘comfort zone’ no longer matters.

…your teaching program probably didn’t prepare you well (e.g., your ability to empathize and engage and design are more important than anything else you learned in said program).

…to practice humility.

How Metacognition Makes Students Better Learners

How Metacognition Makes Students Better Learners | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it
When students learn to reflect meaningfully about their learning, they can participate in a dialogue with the teacher that allows them to work together to determine the actual level of mastery. No longer working in isolation, the teacher can now adequately discuss depth of learning, thereby helping students to communicate particular knowledge that is too often absent from their final products. After students provide the teacher with thorough information about their process, the teacher is in a better position to assess student learning.

Jesus Sandoval's curator insight, February 6, 5:26 AM

For many reasons I agree with what Sugata Mitra says about replacing certain education topics such as reading, writing and arithmetic with other beneficial ones such as comprehending, communicating and computing. In today’s modernized society skills such as communication and understanding technology off the palm of one’s hand is very beneficial when looking for a well paid job. Once a student enters high school these skills (communicating and computing) should be strengthened. It will only benefit the students down the road. What is the point of teaching students how to write with correct punctuation and proper grammar when they can simply turn on  grammar check when typing on a computer? The point is that machines and devices have been developed to do one’s thinking for them. The best option is to teach students how to work with these devices and machines (computing) and not much writing and reading anymore. The world is developing way too quickly to be focused on perfecting one’s writing and reading skills.

I am a big fan of storytelling - for management, for fundraising, for parenting, for connecting, and for figuring out what you want out of life.  Storytelling can make you more authentic as a leader, and more vulnerable as a person.  Stories that are personal make the message even more powerful to the listener because you are sharing something important about you and why you care.

Sri's curator insight, December 18, 2015 3:07 AM

Story telling was a great tool in the past. It has been rediscovered now.
The reason why story telling  succeeds is it provides a context for the learning. It helps to answer the key questions - how and why - that often are ignored in other methods of instructions. Story telling, I wd say, is human-centered instruction design.
