Ditch the grammar and teach children storytelling instead

Ditch the grammar and teach children storytelling instead | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it
Storytelling in its way can have just as much complexity as music or mathematics. That we don’t really understand this craft – or that this is a craft – is partly because of the romantic myth of “inspiration” peddled by authors as much as anyone. It is taught (up to a point) in creative writing degrees – but it can be simplified enough to be taught to schoolchildren as well.

Six Ways the Teacher's Role is Changing | #LEARNing2LEARN #ModernEDU

Six Ways the Teacher's Role is Changing | #LEARNing2LEARN #ModernEDU | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it
During this time of significant educational change, we are forced to ask ourselves, what is the role of the teacher?

Teachers continue to be central to learning, but the role is changing significantly. Our children still need to develop real skills and real knowledge, but they also need to be self-reliant, resilient, and fully capable of re-inventing themselves. This means students must learn how to self-direct their learning.

So if students are self-directing their learning, what's the role of the teacher?

Teachers build the curriculum/lessons with the individual student based on his/her needs and interests rather than move through a fixed curriculum en masse.


Teachers provide the experiences and tools to access new knowledge in specific areas of interest as facilitators of individual pathways, rather than being a provider of the content or expert in one or every area,Teachers become experts in how people learn, not only in teaching.


Teachers support a community of learners in teams, possibly of multiple ages, rather than alone in classrooms with fixed grades of students.


Teachers have more autonomy over their daily schedule, and can be flexible to adjust their schedules to support student needs.


Teachers provide opportunities for real-world, connected, practical learning rather than isolated academics.
These are the types of changes in the teacher's role that are fundamental to developing students who are capable of independent learning and reinvention in a rapidly changing world.

How Virtual Reality Could Change the Way Students Learn

How Virtual Reality Could Change the Way Students Learn | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it

"Virtual Reality (VR) is changing the way people see the future. As with video games emerging into the classroom in the early 2000s, this new technology will soon be making its way into classrooms as well. Many teachers are receptive to working with this technology, but some of them are not quite aware of the effect VR can have on a classroom environment. It can change the way students learn in the long run."

Micah McTaggart's curator insight, May 24, 10:50 PM
I think this is a great new technology for the classroom, albeit an expensive one. if implemented properly, with a curriculum focus, VR has the potential to really engage students in subjects they might otherwise see as boring. Ancient History for example, students could be placed in the world of ancient Rome or Egypt by using VR, they could see it with their own eyes and ears instead of just hearing about it from a teacher. This has the potential to transform the learning experience b putting the student in control of how they view the environments around them. 

VR is also very appealing to many young people and they would be more willing to engage in this form of learning, than say, listening to a lecture on ancient Rome. Students may not even realise they are learning at first, which is awesome as it encourages them to seek out new information without it feeling like a burden or boring.

Collaboration in Augmented Reality | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it
AR systems can be used to create unique collaborative experiences. For example, co-located users can see shared 3D virtual objects that they interact with, or a user can annotate the live video view of a remote worker, enabling them to collaborate at a distance. The overall goal is to augment the face-to-face collaborative experience, or to enable remote people to feel that they are virtually co-located.

Nowadays, we find that videos are used, and indeed useful, for many purposes, like for instance, marketing, propaganda, music, among others. But what concerns us is to know that videos have taken a very important role in education. We use videos to present a class, to engage students, to give examples, to give information, to entertain students, as listening activities, etc. Therefore, I consider that this article is very helpful since sometimes it becomes hard to find background music for the videos we create. This article establishes how important videos have became last years, and then, it presents 10 recommendable web sites to get background music for our videos.
