Maribel Obando Joven's curator insight, August 23, 2016 1:34 PM
Nowadays, Technology is an essential part in people life and for that plays an important role in her personal and professional growth. It is the reason for what teachers need to include the use of it in their class lessons and have to be update with the different plataforms, tools, sites ,etc that we can find in the web and likewise install in our technological devices in order to help students in their learning process and facilitate the teaching process.
 I agree with what this article says "educational technologies are touching new heights" since I cosider that every day there are more online spaces which learners can use to develop their skills in various fields and proffesors can use as a mean to do students learnning more effective.

The calamity of the disappearing school libraries

The calamity of the disappearing school libraries | Future of education | Scoop.it
From coast to coast, elementary and high school libraries are being neglected, defunded, repurposed, abandoned and closed.

The kindest thing that can be said about this is that it’s curious; the more accurate explanation is that it’s just wrong and very foolish.

A 2011 survey conducted with my graduate students of 25 separate statewide studies shows that students who attend schools with libraries that are staffed by certified librarians score better on reading and writing tests than students in schools without library services. And it is lower-income students who benefit the most.

Inspirerende video: Leraren werken met BreinPlein!

Op 23 augustus 2016 organiseerde de landelijke organisatie Leraren met Lef een onderwijsbijeenkomst op de Parade in Amsterdam. De laatste onderwijsinnovaties werden gepresenteerd en BreinPlein – een onderwijsinnovatieproject van Centrum Brein & Leren VU – was hierbij aanwezig. Meer dan 70 leraren werkten deze middag met de bouwmaterialen, puzzels en denktaken van BreinPlein die bedoeld zijn voor basisschool kinderen vanaf groep 4. We vonden het bijzonder om te worden uitgenodigd en aanwezig te zijn. In het filmpje is te zien hoe leraren met de materialen van BreinPlein aan het werk zijn. BreinPlein bestaat uit een set van bestaande materialen die zijn voorzien van nieuwe instructies. Leraren kregen voorbeelden te zien van materialen die in de klas gebruikt kunnen worden. Er werd uitleg gegeven over het belang van instructies en het wijzen van de juiste route. Kinderen komen zonder instructies al heel ver, maar door ze de juiste route te wijzen komen ze nog verder. Ze houden het langer vol om met een taak te werken die niet meteen lukt. In het filmpje is te zien hoe leraren geconcentreerd met de materialen werken. Door logisch na te denken, samen te werken, te plannen en te handelen brachten ze de opdrachten tot een goed resultaat.

Once your kids can read easy books, start reading them hard ones

Once your kids can read easy books, start reading them hard ones | Future of education | Scoop.it

In the annals of great parenting moments, the one where the kids clamber onto the couch by themselves with their very own longish-book is an awesome one. They’ve mastered the de-coding, they’ve got the sounds, and they can follow a simple plot. Time to kick back and watch them lose themselves in literature, right?
Wrong.
Doug Lemov, author of Teach like a Champion and co-author of Reading Reconsidered argues that’s just the moment to read to them more—and to choose challenging texts, far above their reading level. He writes:
Yes, encourage your kids to practise decoding and fluency on accessible texts. But also realise that being read to from books that are more complex than they can read on their own prepares them for the gatekeeper task: understanding difficult ideas and complex texts.
There are multiple benefits to reading kids hard books, he argues. Some are obvious, like exposing them to more complex vocabulary. Some are less so, such as exposing them to more complicated sentences and more elaborate plot lines, which better prepares them for when they encounter those on their own further down the road.

What Schools Are Learning From the Rapid Rise and Fall of Pokémon Go

What Schools Are Learning From the Rapid Rise and Fall of Pokémon Go | Future of education | Scoop.it
At the start of every school year, Diane Levin, an education professor at Boston’s Wheelock College who teaches a course called “Meaning and Development of Play,” has her students interview people of different ages about how they used to play when they were children. The results are not surprising: Every year, her students report that interview subjects over age 50 played outside all day in big groups of their peers, with a few toys (“maybe a ball”) and no adult supervision. People between the ages of 20 and 40, who grew up in the 1980s, ‘90s, and early 2000s, watched a lot of television but still played outside, often make-believe games inspired by TV shows and movies.

For young people today, however, it’s a different story. “They hardly play. If they do play it’s some TV script. Very prescribed,” Levin said. “Even if they have friends over, it’s often playing video games.”
