PL Newsletter - 2013 is "The Year of the Learner"

PL Newsletter - 2013 is "The Year of the Learner" | On education | Scoop.it

We agree with George Couros and Will Richardson that 2013 will be the "Year of the Learner." We are seeing a big culture shift around the world to personalize learning for all learners. When learners are given a greater voice in how they learn, they are more motivated and engaged in their learning. When learners have choices in how they prefer to access and engage with content, and then express what they know, they take ownership of their learning. We encourage you to take one action this "Year of the Learner" by encouraging learner voice and choice.

Practical Ed Tech Tip of the Week - How to Create a Classroom Blog on SeeSaw :: Richard Byrne | On education | Scoop.it
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 several years, marketers have paid close attention to the latest thinking on social media: which platforms one had to be present on, and which tactics worked the best. But two recent surveys suggest that paying too much attention to social media platforms may distract marketing resources from other important conversion strategies.

"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. In essence, this Learner-Centered Environment was the maturation, the development of one tiny seed planted in the fall of 2014.

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.

LEGO’s WeDo 2.0 Robotics Kit Teaches Science And Engineering To Elementary School Students :: Frederic Lardinois

LEGO’s WeDo 2.0 Robotics Kit Teaches Science And Engineering To Elementary School Students :: Frederic Lardinois | On education | Scoop.it
LEGO Education is launching a new version of its WeDo robotics kit for elementary school students at CES today. Just like its predecessor, WeDo 2.0 is meant to introduce students to robotics, engineering and programming, but it’s also meant as a tool for teaching STEM in general.

The set will come with a number of Lego bricks, but most importantly, it includes a Bluetooth Low Energy-based hub that connects to a motor, as well as motion and tilt sensors that are all part of the basic package. On the software side, WeGo uses a drag-and-drop interface for writing basic applications that can connect to the hub and its sensors.

The hardware itself is only part of the solution, though. LEGO also offers schools a curriculum with more than 40 hours of lessons that are built on the key science standards typically taught in second to fourth grade. Some of these are basic engineering projects like building a small truck for a lesson on recycling, while use the LEGO bricks to teach students about plants and pollination — a life science project you wouldn’t immediately associate with LEGO bricks.
