Free Technology for Teachers: A Simple Yet Powerful Student Blogging Activity

Free Technology for Teachers: A Simple Yet Powerful Student Blogging Activity | marked for sharing | Scoop.it

One of the questions that often comes up in myworkshops about blogging is, "what should I have the students write about?" There are dozens, perhaps hundreds, of possible answers to this question. The suggestion that I often make is to start with a simple reflection activity.

Set aside time in your Friday schedule to have your students sit down and write a short reflection on what they learned during the week. These reflections don’t have to be long, a few sentences will do in elementary school. Simply ask your students to share one thing they learned and one thing they still have questions about. To extend the activity have each student comment on at least one other student’s post. Students’ comments could be the answer to a question or a simple “thanks for reminding me about that.” The point is to get students in the habit of reflecting on what they learned. You should do the same.

Helena Capela's insight:

Reflecting on and comment what was learned each class or at the end of the weak is a very good strategy and use blogging to do it enhances the results

Do you know the difference between contemporary and traditional learning and teaching styles? This handy chart breaks it down quite well.
Helena Capela's insight:

Don't think the reality is this dichotomy, there are styles in between the so called traditional and contemporary teaching/learning but the two realities exist.

Wikipedia:Communicate OER SOO Course - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Note on class times: Because we have students in many time zones, and countries with different dates for Daylight Savings Time (DST)/Summer Time, times may vary. Generally speaking, class time on Tuesdays will be consistent in the US and Canada throughout the class, but will shift by an hour if your country adopts DST. (March 31 in Europe, April 7 in Mexico, etc.) Please click the "UTC" link below, and enter your city, to confirm local time!

Homework may be taken on in your own time, but many students will want to work together. We suggest Fridays as the best time to do so. These sessions will be informal, but course instructors Pete and Sara will be online (at minimum) for an hour at 15:30 UTC (same time as the Tuesday classes). We will use a variety of platforms to stay in touch; use whichever ones make the most sense to you!

This is a list of everyone in the current course. You will edit this page as part of your first homework assignment, and you can return here to find your classmates or instructors:

I agree with you and the author. To create with technology and do it creatively is more important than simply use it. Balance and know how to do it is the most important.
Jarrod Johnson's curator insight, March 16, 2013 11:37 AM

Although the heading is misleading, the author has brought up some good points. Most teachers go through three phases:

 

1. Excitement to try out new technological gimmicks in the classroom.

2. Discouragement after the gimmick no longer interests the students.

3. Integration of effective technology to enhance the student's learning.

 

The comments are also a great read and echo this sentiment.

Mathematics of Planet Earth by IMAGINARY | opensource.com | marked for sharing | Scoop.it
The United Nations Education, Science and Culture Organization headquarters in Paris recently hosted the launch of IMAGINARY, a new platform for collaborative mathematics and maths art, or open mathematics.

 

"

Thoughts on participation in science and math from Director of Oberwolfach, Professor Dr. Gert-Martin Greuel:

The way we perceive and communicate mathematics is changing. The general public is longing for interactive museums showing actual research and highlighting open questions. With IMAGINARY we try to go one step further: the public not only visits museums or exhibitions, they create and stage them—in an intuitive manner! This way they become an integral part of the communication process—and science itself becomes participative."

Game-based-learning lines up with Marzano's brain-based-strategies. While games in and of themselves (like any technology) are a vehicle for learning that must be follow-up with real life connections and applications or we've given our students..well..just another game to play.
