12 Tips for training older teachers to use technology

12 Tips for training older teachers to use technology | National Disability Coordination Program Northern Victoria | Scoop.it
There is an assumption that persists in the educational community that more mature teachers are much more difficult and reluctant to be trained on the effective use of educational technology. To some degree, I think this assumption has been built on by the digital native vs digital immigrant myth. But as someone who has trained teachers of all ages all over the world I would say that, from my own experience, this hasn’t been the case.

The Padlet is good to use when all the students have an internet connected device, a tablet, for example, and they have go in for audience polls, and short answers. The results and the responses can be seen by all on a screen in the classroom. All our classrooms have wifi and projectors which can be connected to laptops.

Padlet, c'est un chouette outil. A utiliser, surtout aussi pour son aspect visuel.
Leslie Varela's curator insight, November 14, 11:47 PM
In my opinión this interesting tool contributes to create a good atmosphere where students can interact and share their knowledge and investigations with the whole class. Personally, I would like to use this tool in three different ways: 1) Create a feedback wall where students can post suggestions and express concerns anonymously. 2) Build a matching exercise on the wall and have students rearrange the photos and text to solve, and 3) Create a digital map and have students post their findings about new cultures. The main idea is to teach the topics using other alternatives in order to motivate students participation.

Free Digital Teleprompters to Assist with Video Recording - TechieTeacher | National Disability Coordination Program Northern Victoria | Scoop.it
Having students create videos about topics they are studying is one of my favorite activities. It involves research, communication, collaboration, organization and planning. If you have never witnessed children video taping each other, brace yourself. Often times it can be painful to endure because they frequently "mess up" or "forget what to say". But let's be real. WE adults do the same exact thing! To help ease the video taping frustrations for everyone, I have compiled a short list of FREE digital teleprompters your students or YOU could use when recording a video.

New, different and adaptive: The new keys to education and employability

New, different and adaptive: The new keys to education and employability | National Disability Coordination Program Northern Victoria | Scoop.it
The business world and schools are undeniably connected, working in tandem to prepare students for the world of college and career.

We are living in an age of unprecedented shifts in our economy. One-third of Americans are expected to make their living through freelancing, or project-based work, by 2020.

Many jobs are becoming increasingly automated, and people who do land jobs in large businesses are often working collaboratively and on projects. As the economy and the business world continues to adapt to the shifts, resilient, adaptive workers and creative entrepreneurs are rising to the top.

We are also living in a time when school networks, districts, charters and the schools themselves are redesigning and redefining their vision and structures to be more personalized, blended and project-based, and are also determining how to best prepare young people for this changing economy. Businesses are doing the same, by redesigning the workplace and reinventing structures to best support the business and the people who work for them.

Schools are thinking about the intersection of personalized and project-based work as well as blended and online learning, and so are businesses as they work to ensure that teams can collaborate across time zones and in projects. Schools and businesses are also looking to offer both in-person and online tools for their students and employees’ ongoing professional learning.

As teacher we really not know that dyslexia is. This is related with difficulties in phonological awareness, verbal memory and verbal processing speed. In this article show us a project of an academic language therapist and licensed dyslexia teacher at Griffis Elementary School in Caddo Mills (Texas) who proposed the use of technology to help some of her dyslexic students develop a love for reading. Using Bookshare helping students access books they can read, using their eyes and ears, by listening to and seeing highlighted text. “With the practice of reading with eyes and ears, you are learning words because you are seeing the words spelled correctly, you are hearing the word, as your eye is touching it, pronounced correctly, and over time, you are learning words because you are getting practice hearing and seeing them correctly,” Patterson said.
