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.)

If not a worksheet, then what? - Teacher Tech | On education | Scoop.it
Great news! If you are a parent, or you teach math, or you know a parent, John Stevens (@jstevens009) has just published a new book called Table Talk Math that is focused on having more math-based conversations at home! When you have parents ask for homework (or even if they don’t) THIS BOOK IS THE ANSWER! Give parents opportunities to have conversations with their child about math, not just help them complete math problems.

Aurasma provides an image-recognition software for creating and sharing augmented reality experiences. Users pan with their mobile device cameras to scan images in their physical environment to trigger a separate image or video to play on their screens.

Center for the Future of Libraries | On education | Scoop.it

Via the Scout Report

 

"Established in 2014, the American Library Association's Center for the Future of Libraries is dedicated to anticipating future trends and supporting forward-looking innovation in libraries. On this website, visitors can learn more about emerging library trends, keep abreast of the Center's activities via its blog, and download and read related reports. The Trends section of this website is especially interesting. Here, visitors will find information about 25 emerging movements and issues in libraries, ranging from Connected Learning to Robots to concerns about online Anonymity. Each trend includes an overview with links to related resources, and trends can also be browsed by classification (including Society, Technology, and Demographics). A specific highlight of the Library of the Future Blog, is Read for Later, "a weekly wrap-up of news and articles to help library professionals think about the future of our collections, spaces, services, partners, and roles in the community." Here, readers will find dozens of articles and resources that will be of interest to forward-looking librarians. For instance, in the March 27, 2017 Read for Later, visitors can download the New Media Consortium's Horizon Report on libraries, a sixty-page investigation of the opportunities and challenges of adopting new technologies in academic and research libraries."

Jim Lerman's insight:  

Readers of this Scoop.it site know that I rarely mention resources that are not free. This is one of those rare occasions. Kasey Bell, along with her "Shake up Learning" site/service, has long contributed a lot of high quality free support to educators. She is now offering online and in-person assistance to prepare for the Google Certified Trainer certification. This support is not free, but it is within a reasonable price range. More importantly, both the enhanced professional knowledge and the career advancement potential offered by this training make it well worth looking into. (I am not affiliated with Ms. Bell in any way.)

From virtual reality to online libraries, how technology is revolutionizing education in Grand Rapids

From virtual reality to online libraries, how technology is revolutionizing education in Grand Rapids | On education | Scoop.it

"From virtual online classrooms built by such companies as Microsoft and Switch to the massive open online courses from providers like edX, Coursera and Udemy, and even distance learning programs facilitated by our own brick-and-mortar universities, the walls of modern classrooms are often anything but metaphor. While the blackboard may remain the same--although it comes in white and clear versions now, too--the substance of technology education has been significantly redesigned by the capabilities of the technology being used to educate.

"Some classrooms have integrated iPads, Chromebooks, and even makerspaces (essentially community spaces with tools) for years now, while others are just beginning to take advantage of such innovations. With updated equipment, new software and access to a library of online resources, the Grand Rapids Public Schools district is looking forward to added gains in learning this year. Explorative spaces installed at Grand Valley State University will help older students test and build the devices that tomorrow's learning environments may rely on.

"[Grand Rapids Public Schools] is currently responsible for some of the most innovative learning centers in the country. Under the superintendency of Teresa Weatherall Neal, the school district has grown up and out. The district's Innovation Central High School is anchored by its four distinct academies of modern engineering, health sciences and technology, design and construction, and business leadership and entrepreneurship, each an example of innovative technologies and techniques."

If you're looking for a model where things seem as though they're being done with foresight and community spirit, this is a good place to start.

Teaching Math With Google Apps - Teacher Tech

Teaching Math With Google Apps - Teacher Tech | On education | Scoop.it
One of my favorite activities is to have students use a collaborative Google Slides where each student inserts a picture of a math problem… they did wrong. Analyzing mistakes is a great way to increase the critical thinking (DOK levels) in a lesson. This shifts from students doing math problems in isolation at their desk to students working together to create “a community of learners who helps each other get better.”
Stanford math professor Jo Boaler, in her book Mathematical Mindsets, says that when we make mistakes is when our brain grows. Using collaborative tools such as Google Slides allows us to interact with students to have those discussions around mistakes and make student brains “more wrinkly.”

20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age

20 Ideas for Professional Development in the Digital Age | On education | Scoop.it
What is professional development?  It is pretty much anything that helps one develop professionally. At the heart, professional development is about growth and learning.  In the field of education, it seems like many quickly think of educational opportunities that mimic what they see in their schools. As a result, they turn professional learning and education into schooling.  The problem with that is that schooling is too limiting.  In this age, there are many other exciting and high-impact learning opportunities for teachers that extend beyond traditional notions of schooling.  When we hear the phrase “professional development,” certain practices likely come to mind, things like in-services and conferences. In the digital age, there are countless other opportunities for professional development and restricting one’s thoughts to just a few options limits our insight into what is possible for our students.  With that in mind, here is a brainstorm of 20 options available to educators today. This is far from an exhaustive list, but it is enough to start exploring the possibilities.  Feel free to suggest others in a comment to this post.
