Monsieur Fritz's curator insight, April 5, 3:38 PM

My Club Français built an Eiffel Tower out of food on campus in honor of the Tower's birthday.  We used QR codes with hints to generate interest without revealing what we were doing. My students plastered them all over campus; during break, lunch, passing time - students were scanning like crazy.  Started the scans about two weeks before the build and made bulletin announcements to tell students/faculty to go find the QR codes.  We're getting ready to do it again this year...albeit a bit late for the anniversary of La Tour Eiffel.

Control What Students Can Do with iPad Using Guided Access Functionality ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it

"If not properly used, iPad can also be a source of a major distraction for students. In fact, one of the common thing that happens in classrooms using iPad is that some students take the opportunity when iPad is on to wander off topic and get lost in iPad meanderings. So next time you want to use iPad with students make sure you activate the Guided Access functionality which will limit what students will be able to do on iPad."

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, March 27, 1:20 PM

These are really not new, but they are always worth repeating. What is new is perhaps the intensity and frequency with which they happen. The cross-cultural awareness is certainly the case. What works for me culturally does not work for someone half-way around the world. In fact, it might not work here. Educators  need to be aware of that cross-cultural awareness.

Just-in-Time Teaching: An Interactive Engagement Pedagogy

Just-in-Time Teaching: An Interactive Engagement Pedagogy | learning by using iPads | Scoop.it

Suppose you are teaching an introductory biology course and your next lesson deals with genetics. You would like to prepare your students for the upcoming class by asking them to think about the topic...

 

 

The instructor is now ready to adjust the classroom activities or lesson flow, and improvise if necessary. The flow is pretty much predetermined, but the words used in class will arise from the student responses and, most importantly, will be influenced by the feedback from the live class.

 

Typically, the live class is shown a representative set of responses, and the authors of the responses are invited to comment and elaborate. The rest of the class is encouraged to challenge and suggest alternatives. Properly handled, this can be a teaching opportunity that goes beyond the course content.

 

Students have an opportunity to practice critical thinking and communication skills. The course content is enriched because the wording actually comes from the live class, which makes the lesson fresh and interesting to the students.
