Wood Shop Enters the Age of High-Tech :: NY Times :: John Schwartz

Wood Shop Enters the Age of High-Tech :: NY Times :: John Schwartz | On education | Scoop.it
These days, tinkering is a bit more high tech. The blending of technology and craft in tools like 3-D printers and laser cutters has made it possible for ordinary people to make extraordinary things. And many ordinary people, living as they do, more and more in their heads and online, are yearning to do something with their hands.

So the “maker space” movement — D.I.Y. communities to get people creating, be it for fun, for art or for entrepreneurship — is booming. Maker Faires are held around the world. Commercial operations like TechShop have popped up across the country. And tinkering is being promoted on college campuses from M.I.T. to Santa Clara University, as well as in high schools and elementary schools.

Using Artifacts and Photos to Inspire Writing: Discovering the Writer's Life :: Betsy Hubbard

Using Artifacts and Photos to Inspire Writing: Discovering the Writer's Life :: Betsy Hubbard | On education | Scoop.it

"There are unlimited ways to use artifacts and photos to encourage writing. You can start by providing the item yourself or allowing students to bring in their own. Here’s a list of ideas to get you going:

1. Collect photos and images of people from magazines or a free use site. Have students create a character map, detailing behaviors, likes and dislikes, and traits for character development.


2. Have students make an initial list of descriptive words connected to their artifact. Then ask students to go item by item on their list to create a more descriptive word or phrase. For instance, a student who brings in a fuzzy brown teddy bear might start with a list similar to the one on the left, but progress to a list similar to the one on the right:
brown                         chocolate
fuzzy                         matted fuzz flattened from snuggles
red bow                      crimson tied ribbon


3. Get out the magnifiers and allow children to examine their object looking for small details that might go unnoticed. Jot down these tiny details and talk about the parallels between little details in their writing.


4. Artifacts are fun to use as inspiration for writing mask poems. It forces students to really think about words that describe the item and opens the door for similes and metaphors.

"
5. Once students are comfortable writing personal narrative stories, allow them to write a true story inspired by their artifact or photo. Then, in a twist, have them re-create the story using the same item as inspiration but creating a fictional story."

SeeSaw is a great digital portfolio tool for students and teachers. It works on all devices including iPads and Android tablets. The service allows students to draw and annotate items in their digital portfolios. Earlier this month SeeSaw added a tool for creating and maintaining classroom blogs. On SeeSaw students can write original blog posts and or import items from their digital portfolios to display as blog posts. SeeSaw blogs can be public or you can password protect them. As a teacher you can moderate what your students post before it goes live on your SeeSaw blog. In the video embedded below I demonstrate how to create a blog in SeeSaw.

Having devices in your classroom for students to use, whether you have carts of computers, iPads, or Chromebooks; a 1:1 program; or a BYOD initiative, can be exciting and overwhelming at the same time. Using these devices to provide content support and differentiation for each student is not hard to do. You have long been supplying material for your students at all levels to both remediate and expand their knowledge base. But what about designing formative and summative assessments that use technology and target higher-order thinking skills? Teachers should ask themselves this question, as well as how to develop tasks that transform what goes on in the classroom.

The Old Days VS New Days of Google [Infographic] | On education | Scoop.it

Today, what we say and ask Google starts to matter less and less.

 

Google tries to understand us before we even ask. It’ll morph or results based on our location, device we’re using, previous behavior, and more. It’s truly an engine of matching intent vs. matching keywords these days.

 

And, of course, that’s changed how SEOs work.

"For Ms. Morris and her learners, the learning taking place in this seventh grade classroom was an amalgamation of learner-centered, curiosity-provoking activities, galvanized in the fires of learner passions, that transcended even the most stubborn traces of teenage apathy.

I really like the idea of Project based learning.  Something needs to give re assessment, we just offer (mainly) exams and coursework (not projects, but essays) which aren't necessarily matching re world needs.  Disciplines differ in their requirements for assessment, so possibly it would be good to see how we might adapt (whilst still maintaining high quality programmes in accordance with regulations). Obviously, this refers to UK HEIs.

Getting Started With Periscope In The Classroom - TeachThought

Getting Started With Periscope In The Classroom - TeachThought | On education | Scoop.it
One of the more exciting apps that has recently made it’s way onto the social media scene is Periscope. Periscope is a live, interactive video streaming  app which allows users to broadcast media and footage while their followers engage in their content at the same time. When used in the classroom, students are able to connect with the world in real-time and interact with any of the content that is made available to them.

One of the ways Periscope can be used to enhance a lesson or unit is with a teacher-directed Periscope. Inviting students to interact in this way now allows for personalizing what is needed from each individual at that very moment. When creating content with a screencast program, teachers must already anticipate the needs of their class. With Periscope, teachers can broadcast content live to their students with the ability to tailor the video on the spot in response to student questions and conversations. Flipping a lesson, re-teaching a strategy, or communicating classroom information all in real-time now gives the teacher the power to easily personalize instruction through the interactivity of this app. Students on the other hand, now have the power to pick the path of their own learning.
