50 Things To Do On The iPad

50 Things To Do On The iPad | On education | Scoop.it

While the iPad is not the savior for learning–or even mobile learning for that matter, if you use one for five minutes it’s easy to see that it is an amazing piece of hardware.

We’ve talked about how to use them in a PBL environment. And how to record ideas with them. And even separated ideas for using the iPad in the classroom by complexity. (Or, see ten of our top iPad posts here.)

The Best Children’s Books of 2014

The Best Children’s Books of 2014 | On education | Scoop.it

by Marie Popova


"This is certainly the case with the most intelligent and imaginative “children’s” and picture-books published this year. (Because the best children’s books provide, as Tolkien believed, perennial delight, step into the time machine and revisit previous selections for 2013, 2012, 2011, and 2010.)"


Jim Lerman's insight: Popova's post is lavishly illustrated with images from the 15 books she selected for this year's list. Fans may wish to visit her list of winners for the previous 4 years as well.

Learning Environment as the Third Educator

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, November 21, 4:21 PM
The Reggio Emilia approach is about having children seen as competent, resourceful, curious, imaginative, inventive and to possess a desire to interact and communicate with others. The learning environment, the third educator, invites learners to explore and discover on their own as teachers and parents observe and document the process. 
Norton Gusky's curator insight, November 22, 9:09 AM

Carnegie Mellon University and Carlow University in Pittsburgh have been leaders in using the Reggio Emilia model for early childhood. Reggio Emilia sees technology as one tool that actively engages the child. The environment is really a Maker Space giving young learners the tools to learn based on their interests.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, November 22, 12:22 PM

The teaching/learning environment is a technology that is often overlooked.

HyperCities ~ New Learning Times

HyperCities ~ New Learning Times | On education | Scoop.it

by Carmen James

 

"HyperCities is a dynamic educational project at the intersection of cartography and information visualization, humanities and technology, geography and digital space. The project has produced grounded cultural narratives in 27 international cities. HyperCities uses Google Maps and Google Earth (among other technologies, like GPS-enabled cameras and cell phones) to allow users to explore historical layers of city spaces. Accessing the cities and exploring them is straightforward. Once a city has been selected, users can select the time period or the area of the city they are looking to explore on the map. Within each frame, users can access everything from scholarly content to community-generated content. Users can also click on historic sites to learn more about them and overlay older maps of the same cities."

TJ Bliss: Musings on OER Policy

"Policy favorable to OER is a critical component of the entire open education movement. OER policies currently exist at many levels: international, national, regional, local, and institutional. You can explore various OER policies around the world on the OER Policy Map maintained by the OER Research Hub. Creative Commons also maintains a list of proposed and adopted OER policies that is well-worth your perusal. As I have traveled hither and yon these past few months meeting with Hewlett grantees and others involved and interested in OER, the policy issue has continually surfaced as an important theme. These conversations have caused me to think more deeply about the role of policy in accomplishing Hewlett’s goal of mainstreaming OER."

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, November 24, 1:45 PM
The learner uses the UDL lens to share their strengths and challenges in learning, their preferences or needs to access, engage and express as well as their aspirations, talents and interests. At that moment when a learner is able to tell their story about how they learn with their teacher, the "partnership in learning" begins between the teacher and the learner. This opens the door for the teacher to have a conversation with the learner about learning goals, skills and strategies that the learner needs to work on to reduce any barriers and maximize learning. The undeniable outcome in using the UDL lens is that the child has been validated as a learner. This is something that rarely occurs today in anyone's education and will have a positive and profound impact for any learner.

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, November 17, 6:12 PM
Chris Watkins' article, Research Matters: Learning, Performance and Improvement, is about the relationship between learning in schools and performance in schools.  Watkins' research concludes that a focus on learning can enhance performance, where a focus on performance alone can depress performance. With traditional instruction, the climate in the classrooms becomes more performance oriented over years of schooling.

A performance-oriented environment focuses on looking good
rather than learning well.

"We're not saying there's anything wrong with presentations. After all, they wouldn't be used so often in the classroom if they weren't effective. But in today's increasingly device-saturated learning spaces, whether they be in higher ed or K-12, instruction demands interaction. Luckily, it's not too hard to spice up your pedagogy. These four tools can help you turn that static slideshow into a more engaging experience for everyone involved."
