Le mode public ne propose pas de filtre de langue, difficile donc pour le moment de proposer des activités FLE de contributions à des débtas ouverts essentiellement en anglais.

QR Codes: Pushing the Narrative on Scannables

QR Codes: Pushing the Narrative on Scannables | Student Support | Scoop.it
In the classroom, QR codes can be used for a purpose. They can be thoughtfully integrated into instruction in a way that elevates traditional learning experiences. I've just written a new book for Corwin Publishing all about deeper learning with scannable technology. I'm committed to the idea that technology integration has to be purposeful, and I believe that scannable technology has the potential to transform learning environments.

To discuss scannable technology integration, I've developed the ACES framework -- access, curate, engage, and share. These four categories overlap and intertwine to provide a language for examining thoughtful integration of scannables.

The 25 Best Pinterest Boards in Educational Technology - AVATARGENERATION

The 25 Best Pinterest Boards in Educational Technology - AVATARGENERATION | Student Support | Scoop.it
Thanks to OnlineUniversities for this list of the Best Pinterest Boards in Educational Technology.

Blogs and Twitter aren’t the only social tools out there that can help you keep up with the latest and greatest developments in educational technology. Pinterest is rapidly becoming a favorite tool of educators all over the nation, and many have amassed some pretty great collections of edtech-related pins that teachers and students alike can use to explore new ways to learn, share, teach, and grow. While it would be nearly impossible to highlight every edtech pinboard out there, we’ve shared some of the boards we think stand out among the crowd here. Many are maintained by major educational websites, key figures in edtech, and well-known bloggers, but others were created by teachers just like you who simply want to share resources and tips with others in education.

'Learning how to learn'

'Learning how to learn' | Student Support | Scoop.it

The world's most popular online course is a general introduction to the art of learning, taught jointly by an educator and a neuroscientist.

 

The course is “aimed at a broad audience of learners who wanted to improve their learning performance based on what we know about how brains learn,” said Sejnowski, the director of the Computational Neurobiology Laboratory at the Salk Institute for Biological Studies in California, USA.

With 1,192,697 students enrolled since the course was created last year, “Learning How to Learn,” which is offered by the University of California through Coursera, an online learning company which has partnered with a number of universities, has narrowly edged out the more tightly focused course, “Machine Learning,” taught by Stanford University professor Andrew Ng, which currently has 1,122,031 students enrolled.

12 Unexpected Ways to Use LEGO in the Classroom | Edudemic

12 Unexpected Ways to Use LEGO in the Classroom | Edudemic | Student Support | Scoop.it
The idea that students can learn something valuable from play isn’t new, or even controversial. A sizeable body of research has been conducted to back up what many teachers already knew to be true.  Fun and learning don’t have to be mutually exclusive, and it really works better for everyone involved when they’re not.

As such, making LEGO Bricks part of your lesson plan can help you teach concepts that students might otherwise find tedious, in a way that doesn’t feel like work to them. Many educators have already been putting this idea to the test with success. Here are a few ideas to get you started.

The legacy of Legos is amazing - so many children had developed concepts and skills through the construction and creativity of Legos. From my perspective, they ABSOLUTELY belong in every classroom - and every home. Play IS Learning.

What is a Makerspace? Is it a Hackerspace or a Makerspace?

What is a Makerspace? Is it a Hackerspace or a Makerspace? | Student Support | Scoop.it
A makerspace is a collaborative work space inside a school, library or separate public/private facility for making, learning, exploring and sharing that uses high tech to no tech tools.  These spaces are open to kids, adults, and entrepreneurs and have a variety of maker equipment including 3D printers, laser cutters, cnc machines, soldering irons and even sewing machines.  A makerspace however doesn’t need to include all of these machines or even any of them to be considered a makerspace.  If you have cardboard, legos and art supplies you’re in business.  It’s more of the maker mindset of creating something out of nothing and exploring your own interests that’s at the core of a makerspace.  These spaces are also helping to prepare those who need the critical 21st century skills in the fields of science, technology, engineering and math (STEM).  They provide hands on learning, help with critical thinking skills and even boost self-confidence.  Some of the skills that are learned in a makerspace pertain to electronics, 3d printing, 3D modeling, coding, robotics and even woodworking,   Makerspaces are also fostering entrepreneurship and are being utilized as incubators and accelerators for business startups.  There have already been some amazing success stories that have come out of makerspaces to date.

Awesome Poster Featuring 10 iPad Apps to Boost Kids Critical Thinking Skills ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Student Support | Scoop.it
Critical thinking  is a much needed skill especially in this era which is fraught with digital distractions and infomania. As a cognitive competence, critical thinking embraces several conceptual skills that include synthesizing, assessing, analyzing, applying and evaluating information. Critical thinking allows students to make informed  and rational decisions as it forces them to dive deeper and analyze things logically.  What would be viewed as a common sensical fact by ‘surface thinkers’ would be considered as a provocative statement that invite much reflection and investigation by critical thinkers. The purpose of today's post is to introduce you some a curated list of some of our favourite iPad apps you can use with your students and kids to boost their critical thinking skills. We have also created the poster below in case you want to use it in your class. Enjoy

What does intelligence look like? | Student Support | Scoop.it
For much of its history schooling has been obsessed with one type of intelligence as evidenced by what is given time within the learning day and that which is the focus of assessment. Indeed, pedagogy, curriculum and assessment within schools has delivered a clear and consistent message about what constitutes intelligence. Knowledge, defined as the recall of information, literacy, defined as the ability to read and write and numeracy, defined as the ability to calculate, have formed the pillars of educational systems and have both framed and been framed by our view of intelligence.
