Miss Philbin's Teaching and Learning Journal: Deploying Raspberry Pi's in a Classroom - Problems & Solutions

Miss Philbin's Teaching and Learning Journal: Deploying Raspberry Pi's in a Classroom - Problems & Solutions | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

Since January I have been working hard to try and bring computing via Raspberry Pis into my secondary school specifically for key stage 3 students. I chose Raspberry Pi to do this for a number of reasons:

Using Pis would bypass any issues with the school network and workstation configurations that would hinder computer program development. Using a different device would broaden students understanding of what a computer is (hardware) and what you can do to it.We would only require a class set of Pis and could use many SD cards for each group.

Qualitative methods for researching teachers’ (re)use of OER - Open Research Online

Qualitative methods for researching teachers’ (re)use of OER - Open Research Online | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

The literature on Open Educational Resources (OER) points to a need to further research how best to foster teachers’ reuse of OER (Masterman and Wild, 2011), and how best to enable the infrastructure for sharing OER to appropriately support the needs of teachers (Davis et al., 2010).

This paper proposes variations around the themes of Peer Observation of Teaching and Professional Conversations as tools to investigate the use and reuse of OER by teachers. It reports on two qualitative studies on the use and reuse of OER by language teachers at the Open University UK. Teachers use LORO (loro.open.ac.uk), an open repository of OER for language teaching, to select their teaching resources.

Great Critical Thinking Map for your Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Great Critical Thinking Map for your Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | marked for sharing | Scoop.it
You ask any teacher today about the skills they want their students to develop and you will get critical thinking skills as an obvious answer; of course together with other skills. With the advance of technology and the educational paradigmatic shift that ensued , critical thinking skills have occupied a central part in the literature of teaching and learning pedagogy, not that these skills were not important before but I would say they came to the foreground now more than in any time before.

This particular brush (Sensu) is on sale through Amazon for approximately $40.00.  There is another model that is less expensive.

Free Technology for Teachers: Ten Good Video Sources for Science Students and Teachers | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

One of the great things about teaching today is the wealth of educational videos that are available on the web. No longer do we have to flip through catalogs, order a VHS cassette, wait for it to arrive, and hope that it is as good as the catalog made it sound. Now we can quickly access and screen educational videos. In fact, there is so much available that the challenge is sifting through it all. That's why I occasionally publish lists like this one to help others find educational videos online. Here are ten good sources of science videos for students and teachers.

9 Steps to Create A Classroom Poster Using Google Docs ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

9 Steps to Create A Classroom Poster Using Google Docs ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

I have been sharing a great deal of educational posters here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning. I love using posters with my students and I know many of you love them too. Sometimes it seems like we can not find the exact poster we want for our class and this is when we need to use our techy skills to craft our own posters. The process is not very hard and anybody with the rudimentary tech knowledge can do it in a matter of minutes. I have already featured a post containing several web tools to help you create your posters. However, I recently got some requests from some of my readers asking me about the tool I used in creating the posters I shared in my Freebies section. The answer is Google Docs.Google Docs has a drawing canvas that is really excellent for creating posters for your classroom and here is a step by step guide on how to do it. Enjoy
