Teacher's Guide to Using Free iPad Apps to Support Higher Order Thinking Skills ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Teacher's Guide to Using Free iPad Apps to Support Higher Order Thinking Skills ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it

"Hot Apps for HOTS is an excellent guide packed full of apps and activities to support higher order thinking skills (HOTS). I learned about this eBook from a post by Tony Vincent in Learning in Hand almost a month ago and since then I downloaded the guide and read it from cover to cover and was really thrilled by the depth and practicality of the learning materials provided by the authors: Lisa Johnson and Yolanda."

Via Nik Peachey
Ruby Rennie Panter's insight:
Flashcards are very popular, although our current understanding of how learning happens shows that they have limited use. However, they could be helpful as part of a larger learning experience. Many learners have a lot of faith in being able to memorise things by using flashcards, so if it builds their confidence in some way there could also be value in that

Decoding ClassDojo

Decoding ClassDojo | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it
Ruby Rennie Panter's insight:

This is a very interesting look at a popular class management system called Class Dojo. The author, Ben Williamson, considers how gamification and behaviourism are underlying theories for a tool that could be used to modify and manipulate; advocates of Class Dojo could argue that it encourages indiviudals to challenge and work on their own learning.  "The globally popular classroom behaviour management app ClassDojo is being extended into a tool to support children’s ‘character development’ and ‘growth mindsets.’ ClassDojo illustrates how new educational technologies are simultaneously the product of venture capital investment and new psychological and neuroscientific conceptualizations of learning."

10 Lesson Plans to Develop Digital Literacies

10 Lesson Plans to Develop Digital Literacies | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it

Over the last few months I have been working hard to develop a set of commercially available lesson materials. These lesson plans aren't specifically designed for English language learners, though they will be useful for students at higher levels who want stimulating skills based practice or for any teacher interested in developing a CLIL or content based approach to language learning. They were designed to enable any teacher to develop students in a way that is more closely aligned to the kinds of skills they will need to function effectively and critically in the digital world.

Sugata Mitra: schools should scrap the 3Rs

Sugata Mitra: schools should scrap the 3Rs | Mobile learning for students and teachers | Scoop.it

“Reading, writing and arithmetic should be deemphasised and replaced with comprehending, communicating and computing. That’s the world we live in today,” Prof Mitra said at the education technology conference Bett in east London today.

Would like to listen to him in live again.

Jesus Sandoval's curator insight, February 6, 5:26 AM

For many reasons I agree with what Sugata Mitra says about replacing certain education topics such as reading, writing and arithmetic with other beneficial ones such as comprehending, communicating and computing. In today’s modernized society skills such as communication and understanding technology off the palm of one’s hand is very beneficial when looking for a well paid job. Once a student enters high school these skills (communicating and computing) should be strengthened. It will only benefit the students down the road. What is the point of teaching students how to write with correct punctuation and proper grammar when they can simply turn on  grammar check when typing on a computer? The point is that machines and devices have been developed to do one’s thinking for them. The best option is to teach students how to work with these devices and machines (computing) and not much writing and reading anymore. The world is developing way too quickly to be focused on perfecting one’s writing and reading skills.
