Are Teachers and Ed Tech Businesses Working Towards the Same Goal?

Are Teachers and Ed Tech Businesses Working Towards the Same Goal? | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it

Education technology businesses have come up with hundreds, if not thousands, of products meant to make teachers’ lives easier and improve student achievement. Most products bite off a piece of the education puzzle, trying to solve one corner of a complex web.

Nik Peachey's insight:

Good article. Personally I feel that technology designed for education is part of what is holding us back. It traps us in the 'old ways'. We need to be using the kinds of tools that are genuinely part of our students' lives.

No Child Left Untableted

No Child Left Untableted | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it

This growing stream of information, which can be analyzed down to individual keystrokes, yields a picture that will eventually progress in complexity from, say, a list of words a student looks up to a profile of metacognitive skills — like the ability to concentrate — and in time to a full-blown portrait of a developing mind. In theory, each student will generate the intellectual equivalent of a fantastically detailed medical chart.

Nik Peachey's insight:

A very skeptical look at tablet adoption in education in the US.

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it

These teachers see the internet and digital technologies such as social networking sites, cell phones and texting, generally facilitating teens’ personal expression and creativity, broadening the audience for their written material, and encouraging teens to write more often in more formats than may have been the case in prior generations.  At the same time, they describe the unique challenges of teaching writing in the digital age, including the “creep” of informal style into formal writing assignments and the need to better educate students about issues such as plagiarism and fair use.

Seven Essentials for Project-Based Learning

Seven Essentials for Project-Based Learning | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it

A project is meaningful if it fulfills two criteria. First, students must perceive the work as personally meaningful, as a task that matters and that they want to do well. Second, a meaningful project fulfills an educational purpose. Well-designed and well-implemented project-based learning is meaningful in both ways.

Good sound guidance about project based learning.

The framework for embarking on a successful project.

JennaMRyan's curator insight, December 11, 2013 8:36 PM

In the Educational Leadership Magazine, September 2010 Edition, John LArmer and John R. Mergendoller wrote the article "Seven Essentials ofr Project-Based Learning."  The article opens with a secnario of a teacher plopping a packet of papers on desks saying create a poster on bacteria.  This is a too common "excuse" for a project that lacks meaning and depth.  The process of students' learning and depth of cognitive engagement are more important in PBL than the project.  The seven essentials of PBL  are listed as follows:

1. A Need to Know

2. A Driving Question

3. Student Voice and Choice

4. 21st Century Skills

5. Inquiry and Innovation'

6. Feedback and Revision

7. A Publicly Presented Product

 

In another source curated, the Projects v. PBL, one of the most important differences is that projects get turned in and PBL gets shared with the public, this is consistent with this resource.  Seems like a common thread betwen all these currated sources is this "Need to Know" concept.  All sources agree the project in question needs to stem from a good idea and a good idea is something that is engaging to the kids and sparks the "need" with in them "to know."  The comparison to plopping papers on a desk and making posters with PBL is such a dramatic difference.  I certainly remember making posters for projects in middle school, but if I were to get to make a poster as a component of PBL in my classroom, I'm sure I would have been more intrinsicly motivated and more engaged in the assignment.  I grew from reading this article because I can see seven practical steps and goals for implementing PBL in my future classroom outlined clearly.

What Is Successful Technology Integration?

What Is Successful Technology Integration? | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it

Before we can discuss how to shift our pedagogy or the role of the teacher in a classroom that is integrating technology, it is important to first define what "technology integration" actually means. Seamless integration is when students are not only using technology daily, but have access to a variety of tools that match the task at hand and provide them the opportunity to build a deeper understanding of content.

This is very interesting! I've never considered this idea! I would like to see some studies that prove this article right, however. I wonder why this is encouraged in most schools? I would love to hear more about this! 

Ruth Obadia's curator insight, September 13, 2013 2:33 AM

Instead of isolating themselves with their devices, students lean in and collaborate using the devices available. The trick is to design learning opportunities that encourage conversation and collaboration. This approach is more social and engaging for students anyway and allows teachers to leverage the collective intelligence in the room.

robyns tut's curator insight, September 16, 2013 4:12 PM

I think this is a great idea. We truly are moving into an era where technology is taking over and transforming our lives. The way we work and communicate are totally technological based. Teachers need to embrace this new era of technology, we are moving forward and they need to get with it or they will fall behind.

Making lectures and lessons more interactive with mQlicker

Making lectures and lessons more interactive with mQlicker | Learning Technology News | Scoop.it

As the traditional lecture has come increasingly under fire for being completely out of touch with modern teaching and learning methods, there has been a move by many teachers, conference presenters and lecturers to make their teaching techniques more modern and interactive. One of the key technologies for enabling this has been a range of audience response systems that provide real time responses to polls, questions and surveys while the speakers is actually presenting.

Students can respond to the data while the lecture is in progress. As expensive and time-consuming (training) this intiative would be to udertake it would certainly improve lecture attedance. :D

The war between natives and immigrants is ending. The natives have won.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, September 11, 2013 12:00 PM

The term digital native is an oversimplication and is not overly accurate. Research in Australia and England are showing power users in undergrad programs make up about 14% of the students. What about the rest? One thing about Prensky's work is he does acknowledge that technology has to fit with school and learning in an integrated manner.

 

As I read the article, I realized this concerns about the pace of technology have been with us for some time, perhaps since time began. Hannah Arendt argued the pace of technology had outpaced our ability to speak about it coherently in the 1950's.

After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students.

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 24, 2013 5:27 PM

Just as speaking is the outcome of listening, so writing is the outcome of reading, not the other way round. Listening to the student should also include "listening" to their writing. ie., analyse what they are saying and how they are doing it.  When students evaluate their own work, the teacher should listen and guide them to ways of improving it, whether it be punctuation, paragraphing, spelling, or word or subject knowledge.  This is how we bring students on board and empower them to learn. 

Aunty Alice's curator insight, October 31, 2013 4:49 PM

Listening to students has two aspects; listening to what they say orally, and 'listening' to their writing which is only another way of talking, only through a code. Just as learning to speak is tied closely to listening to what is said and being exposed to words that help one to think better, so writing is the same  and relies on reading "or listening" to what others say and how they say it to express clear meaning. The two subjects, reading and writing, are closlely intertwined yet we compartmentalize them in the literacy curriculum. An example of adults thinking they know what is best for children.
