Two Wonderful Visual Lists of Educational iPad Apps for Teachers and Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Empowering e-Teachers | Scoop.it

"In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices.

The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same."

Free or low cost apps

A/Prof Jon Willis's curator insight, June 16, 7:12 PM

Although this is a relatively trivial example, the idea of a Bingo approach to skills building is an interesting one - at UQ we're using a passport as part of engagement processes with Aboriginal school students visiting the university. For every activity they participate in, there is a unique stamp for their passport. The bingo card idea is similar so that across a semester, students fill up their bingo card with activities that build their skills in a range of domains, or across a range of technologies or tools.

Teaching With QR Codes

Teaching With QR Codes | Empowering e-Teachers | Scoop.it

"So, what are QR Codes, you ask?  Well, you know what barcodes are,  like when you buy something at the store and the clerk scans a code to enter the item and amount into the till?  The QR (Quick Response) Code is kind of like that, except that it offers much more information.  Quite often the QR Code will give you a link to a website, or a text message, image, etc.  To read the QR Code, you need to install a QR Code Reader onto your device.  There are many available for free.  I like using i-nigma, seen below. Simply open the app, point it at a QR Code and your device will do the rest.  Try it with the code above.  It should take you back to this blog."

Entre las diversas estrategias para promocionar el pensamiento crítico, se proponen cuatro (INQUIRY, QUESTIONING, PROBLEM SOLVING Y COLLABORATION), por ser, según el autor, las de mayor impacto.

Buena síntesis a la hora de implementar en el aula, de manera colaborativa,  el aprendizaje significativo y el pensamiento crítico         , siendo clave plantear 'guiding questions', de naturaleza abierta ('open-ended'), en la actividad diaria con los estudiantes.

Michel J. Boustani's curator insight, June 16, 8:17 AM

Students (future adults) need to learn what is and how to critical thinking from their own discoveries. SO that they will earn the freedom of critical thinking in their own time, from their own realities...

This groundbreaking EdTech study examines the way that modern technology is bringing remarkable innovation into the educational sector; a field which has historically remained fairly fixed and traditional for centuries. The report analyses the degree to which education is being made into a universally accessible, innovative, personalized, and adaptive experience, and finds that the these changes will be pivotal for achieving the United Nations’ goal of universal education by 2015.

Where education technology will — and won’t — take us by 2024

Where education technology will — and won’t — take us by 2024 | Empowering e-Teachers | Scoop.it

Professor Larry Cuban:

 

With all of the above occurring, one would think that by 2024, age-graded schools and the familiar teaching and learning that occurs today in K-12 and universities  would have exited the rear door.

I do not think so. Getting access to powerful electronic devices for all students and teachers is surely a victory for those who believe in better technologies solving teaching and learning problems. But access does not guarantee use, especially the kind of use that vendors and ardent technophiles seek.

Tech in education - enhancement not destruction, just my not-so-humble opinion.

Aunty Alice's curator insight, December 26, 2013 1:34 PM

Better technology to solve learning and teaching problems is a great thought but should not be seen as the bottom line. Identifying the problems accurately so they can be focussed  on with purpose, practicing to put into the long term memory, motivating  and rewarding the student...have to be in the  mix too, not to mention self discipline and good mental and physical health. 

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, December 26, 2013 2:58 PM

"None of these incremental changes herald the disappearance of K-12 age-graded public schools or the dominant patterns of teacher-centered instruction. What these gradual changes will translate into is an array of options for teaching and learning available to both teachers and students."

 

This is particularly disconcerting. Without a shift away from the way we have always done things, will education really meet the demands of th 21st Century?
