Some nice apps that can definitely help with creative thinking! In seminars, apps like these could be used in place of a turn-and-talk or other technique to get conversation going again.

Speakers and sessions for Education on Air ~ Google for Education | On education | Scoop.it
Last month we announced Education on Air — our free online conference taking place May 8-9, 2015 — and asked what you wanted to hear about. Today we released the schedule of sessions, based largely on what we heard from you. We’ll emphasize innovation — 44% of you voted for this — as well as how to empower students and use Google tools effectively. It was clear from our second poll that you also want practical examples, so our speakers will go beyond theory and share their specific advice for enacting change.

There's a problem with traditional video conferencing clients. Though they are in abundance, they're only remotely useful if all parties are collectively using the same client. Popular services such as VoxOX, ooVoo, IMO and, of course, Skype and Google Hangouts all have this problem, thus putting a damper on quick collaboration. One "solution" to this is…

The Nellie Mae Education Foundation envisions an education system where learning transcends the traditional school calendar and setting. They envision a system where learners progress based upon mastery of a skill or topic, rather than time spent in a classroom.

And hey - learners shouldn't be bored in the classroom. Let's reshape our system so that learning is personalized, and learners have a true voice in their education.

Jim Lerman's insight

 

EdTechTeacher, co-founded by Tom Daccord and Justin Reich, is a wonderful edtech consulting and training organization. Among many things that it does, ETT sponsors conferences, workshops, and leadership seminars. They are perhaps most well known for their Teacher iPad Summits held each year in Boston and San Diego

 

ETT's website hosts many resources, this Scoop focuses on their outstanding (and growing) collection of video tutorials (185 strong as of today...March 30, 2015). You may find the library on Vimeo (just click on the headline or the image above).

 

Each video provides a professionally produced demo/explanation of how to use some the the latest and greatest apps and techniques. Recent examples include "Pop up Video with Explain Everything," "VideoNot.es Tutorial," "Snagit Video Tutorial," and "Kaizena Video Tutorial."

 

All of this material is free. What a generous contribution by these wonderfully talented and creative people!

Digital Age Skills for Educators | Educator Innovator ~ by An-Me Chung

Digital Age Skills for Educators | Educator Innovator ~ by An-Me Chung | On education | Scoop.it
Mozilla has recently kicked off two exciting new planning projects to help in- and out-of-school educators identify and teach digital-age skills, and to prototype badges with clear learning and achievement outcomes related to those skills. Mozilla is working with an advisory group drawn from the Mozilla community, industry, higher education, policymakers, and others to ensure the content and evidence is grounded in real-world application. Finally, Mozilla is making sure to document lessons learned for broader reach and information back to interested stakeholders.

The Leveraging Linked Learning and Career-ready Badges project, funded by the Irvine Foundation, will create and prototype digital badges with Linked Learning educators in California. The Afterschool, Digital Age Skills Badges and Competency-based Learning project, funded by the Mott Foundation, will also create a set of digital badges for prototyping and piloting, as well as to influence policymakers on the important role of afterschool programs in supporting and supplementing learning.

Teaching teams: New ways to work together in Classroom ~ Google for Education ~ by Hugh Lynch

Teaching teams: New ways to work together in Classroom ~ Google for Education ~ by Hugh Lynch | On education | Scoop.it

"We built Classroom to help teachers spend less time on paperwork, and more time with their students. Since we launched, we’ve also heard from teachers and professors that they’d love to be able to use Classroom to collaborate with other educators. 

"Teach together: Whether it’s a substitute, a teacher’s aide or a department chair, almost every teacher and professor is supported by other educators. So starting today, you can have multiple teachers in a Classroom class. To try it out, just go to your class’s About page and click “Invite teacher.” Additional teachers can do almost everything the primary teacher can do: they can create assignments or announcements, view and grade student submissions, participate in the comments on the class “stream,” invite students and even get email notifications – everything except delete the class."

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, April 6, 1:20 PM

Jackie shares some important pointers in this guest post about guiding learning and the importance of context when learning.


The more you can apply what you're learning to your every day, the more it'll stick in your head. The reason is simple. When you're learning by doing, you're implementing everything that makes our memory work. When you're able to connect what you're learning with a real world task, that forms the bonds in your brain, and subsequently the skills you're learning will stick around. 


We learn best when we have context, and that applies to new skills as much as it does random facts in school. That's why something like the transfer of learning is helpful when you’re learning a new skill. This means you're applying your new skills in your day to day life in a context that matters.
