Putting Imaginative Play Back Into Childhood

Deborah McNelis, M.Ed's curator insight, April 2, 2013 5:26 PM

Children need the opportuntiy for imaginative play to develop the highest thinking areas of the brain responsible for self regulation and executive function.

Tess Sorensen's comment, April 6, 2013 6:34 PM
"Play is created by children, not adults." Adults, learn to step back and let the children lead. Do not ever think that you are only a teacher, you must remember to be a learner also.

Everything I Need To Know About Education ... I Learned In Kindergarten! - iPads in Education | Little Vikings 4K & Childcare | Scoop.it

I was recently giving a workshop at a local elementary school. Walking around and speaking to teachers and children it suddenly dawned on me that several of the "revolutionary" educational changes we've been calling for have actually already been around for quite a while - just talk a stroll down to the Kindergarten classes.

Free Technology for Teachers: Remind 101 - Safely Text Parents and Students

Free Technology for Teachers: Remind 101 - Safely Text Parents and Students | Little Vikings 4K & Childcare | Scoop.it

"Remind 101 is a free service that allows you to send text messages to groups of students and or parents from your computer, your iPhone, or your Android phone. The benefit of using Remind 101 over Google Voice, which I used to use for this purpose, to text students and parents is that your phone number is not revealed and your students' cell phone numbers are not revealed to you. Students and parents have to opt-in if they want to be added to your text messaging list. Students and parents have to enter a confirmation code to state that they do want to be contacted by you through the service."

Danielle M. Villegas's curator insight, May 22, 2013 9:28 AM

This article comes by way of @felixjacomino on ScoopIt. I really like this article, because it's main point is that people are trying to adapt old ways of writing to new technology. I believe the author, at some point, even points out that in education, it doesn't matter what software package a child learns as long as they learn technology and the basics of how to use word processing. I started out on WordPerfect years ago, and then had to adapt to Word 1.0 (what version are we up to now?). Same with CMS systems that I've learned in the past. People are always so stuck on knowing specific products in tech comm instead of realizing that if you know one software package, you can probably adapt fairly quickly to a new one if you are just shown the differences. That was definitely the case with my current position. 

 

But back to iPads and writing--I took copious notes on my iPad during the STC Summit, and wrote several long blog posts on my iPad as well. Yes, it was easier to type with a wireless keyboard, but that's only because I type very fast and legibility is important to me. It's a sensory thing for me.  I found that for basic writing tasks, I can use the iPad with ease, and that's the point of this article. No more excuses! Mobile is definitely an option.

"What originally started out as a novelty item has now become a ubiquitous force to be reckoned with. The Apple iPad, in its multiple models, has become a major player in classroom computing.

 

Yet just as soon as the iPad revolution started, many followed its lead – resulting in companies designing their own range of tablets to be used in a variety of settings, from workplaces to hospitals and even airports. So what types of these competing tablets are being used in the education?"
