8 digital skills we must teach our children

8 digital skills we must teach our children | MEDIOS INFORMÁTICOS | Scoop.it

The way children use technology is very different from adults. This gap makes it difficult for parents and educators to fully understand the risks and threats that children could face online. As a result, adults may feel unable to advise children on the safe and responsible use of digital technologies. Likewise, this gap gives rise to different perspectives of what is considered acceptable behaviour.

MIT App Inventor is a blocks-based programming tool that enables everyone, even novices, to learn programming and build fully functional apps for Android devices. Newcomers to App Inventor can have their first app up and running in an hour or less, and can program more complex apps in significantly less time than with more traditional, text-based languages.

How to find the perfect app: The Great App Checklist | MEDIOS INFORMÁTICOS | Scoop.it

We offer this checklist to help educators zero in on the app they need and to judge how well it performs key functions. This rubric can help developers understand how educators choose apps, what information would help someone in this audience, which details to mention in the app store summary, and what is the essential functionality.

It’s impossible to short-circuit the littleBits or create a syntax error in your physical “program” since they only snap together the “correct” way. Kids from 5-85 love inventing with littleBits.

We recently created two “Quick Start” guides for the trickier aspects of working with littleBits. "

The Right & Wrong Way To Use Technology For Learning | MEDIOS INFORMÁTICOS | Scoop.it

"So much in learning is subjective, which makes sense because so much in life itself is also subjective, and we learn in order to live. So it’s natural.

Grey areas abound–the usefulness and quality of the Common Core Standards. The importance of curiosity in learning. The evaluation of technology in learning. The utility of letter grades. (And alternatives to letter grades.)"

What is the best way to use technology in your classroom? We know that students like to use technology but are they using it constructively? Are  you using technology constructively? This post explores these issues, not ing that there are some right and wrong answers in how technology should be used?

I believe that technology is a tool, a tool that can be used to reinforce, enhance and extend the curriculum; a tool that allows students to use critical thinking skills; to find answers to questions.

Check out the graphic that accompanies the discussion of this topic and consider how you will be using technology in your class.

“ En los últimos años Youtube poco a poco fue dejando de lado ser solo un servicio para alojar y compartir vídeos. Youtube fue agregando varias características, herramientas y recursos útiles para que los creadores de vídeos puedan utilizar gratuitamente y así dejar de depender de herramientas costosas. Por ejemplo el editor de vídeos de Youtube cada vez permite mejorar más los vídeos que subimos a Youtube. También lanzó herramientas como el difuminador de objetos en vídeos y hasta ofrece una librería de música con licencia Creative Commons para usar en nuestros vídeos y hasta en cualquier otro proyecto. Eso no es todo, con una de esas herramientas los usuarios pueden grabar todo lo que sucede en la pantalla de su ordenador, evitando la necesidad de instalar y utilizar otro software en nuestro sistema. Esto es muy fácil de hacer y si bien tendrán que usar la característica de Tansmisión en Vivo desde su ordenador, no se asusten pues no estarán transmitiendo nada al público de lo”

Computer programming has become the new "literacy" that many teachers and school districts are implementing to help students exercise critical thinking and problem solving skills. Students of all ages gravitate towards creating and implementing programs--large and small--that they create digitally. Our technology department recently purchased two MaKey MaKeys for every elementary ITRT to use when collaborating with teachers on special projects that involve computer programming.

s a professional artist, deepening the ways in which seemingly disparate objects and processes are interconnected through locating, and mapping their intersections has been one of the main elements of my studio practice. The Fab Lab tools and working processes create an environment that is well suited to investigating those types of intersections.

In an effort to integrate Fab Lab tools centered on craft, and studio-based processes into the classroom, I have been working to implement a Mobile MakerCart at a project-based K-8 charter school. In addition to introducing craft-based physical computing projects to the children, a guiding principle behind the MakerCart is to give teachers the opportunity to develop familiarity with the MakerCart’s tools and processes in order to be able to envision the ways in which they might be able to develop their own curriculum for use in the classroom.

3D Printing Basics - Instructables.com

3D Printing Basics - Instructables.com | MEDIOS INFORMÁTICOS | Scoop.it
A 3D Printer is a manufacturing tool used to create three-dimensional artifacts that have been designed on a computer. 3D printers have a wide range of shapes, sizes, and types, but in essence they are all computer controlled additive manufacturing machines. Similar to how paper printers lay down ink in one layer to create an image, 3D printers lay down or cure material layer by layer to create a three-dimensional object.

3D printers have a huge range of applications; designers use them to test out product ideas, manufacturing companies use them to make complicated parts for assemblies, and makers use them for DIY fabrication for anything they can imagine. Although the different types and uses of 3D printers vary widely, all 3D printers can be simply described as tools; they allow people to make things that they weren't able to make before.

From this guide you will learn what 3D printers are, how they work, when they should be used, and how to design for them and use them. I'll also provide some resources on purchasing printers and 3D printing services. Once you're through it, hopefully you'll be able to print some things yourself!

One look at how iPads may be used in the classroom with suggestions of apps to use. Some additional apps are suggested in the post with explanations on why you might choose to use them. All to often when rolling out new tools teachers become overwhelmed. This diagram was developed with the author stating: "The point is that less than 15 apps can be a starting point for learning, with the substitution of applications based on the learner’s needs and educator’s requirements."

Nicole Kotoski's curator insight, April 1, 2014 10:56 PM

Ipads are a great tool to use in the classroom when they are used correctly. Just using the IPad does not mean that we are integrating technology into our classes we need to use it as a tool in learning. A tool that supports students to think creatively and to collaboratively. Apps are plentiful and using the SAMR model as educators we will be able to integrate the right apps into the classroom. Just using keynote does not mean that we are allowing our students to design the wheel, we have taken a step into integrating technology but we have not taken a leap. We have modified a task that students have done previously. Dependent on learning goals and achievement and learners own abilities will depend on the apps you use. I will certainly be taking the SAMR model into consideration when using apps in the classroom.

Karen Barlow's comment, April 11, 2014 6:44 AM
ipads are a great tool to incorporate the higher levels of the SAMR model into learning. The best part is that it is easy and the payoff particularly when you get to the modification and redirection levels. Whilst it is easy to use ipads as a substitution and augmentation they are an easy and great way to incorporate interactive tasks into learning.
