This looks cool!! Now imagine hooking this to a projector in your class and using it as a story starter. Would be interesting to see how many different stories emerge.

Ness Crouch's curator insight, May 25, 2015 2:57 AM

This looks like an interesting app. I'm wondering how it would work for assessment?

Do Teachers Need iPad Training? - Edudemic

Do Teachers Need iPad Training? - Edudemic | On line learning platforms | Scoop.it

"We have come to a point in the education technology journey where it seems rather dull to still be asking if the iPad is the right device for the classroom. The answer, in case you’ve missed the last few years of debate is that it is a great option, but this is not universally accepted and never will be. Nonetheless, one of the attributes you’ll hear put forward is that it is easy to use because of the intuitive nature of iOS. This is absolutely true; you can put the iPad into the hands of almost any child and within a short period of time they will have mastered it.

 

So does it then follow that you can out the iPad into the hands of teachers and expect the same results?

 

No."

The emphasis on iPads is a bit of a distraction here - the issue is related more to the ability of teachers to create engaging learnng opportunities where technology use extends and enhances the students' capacity for self-direction, information literacy, collaboration. culural awareness, etc... be it with an iPad or other ICT, the point is that too many teachers still rely on delivery and control, rather than authentic opportunities for learning.
Gary Harwell's curator insight, August 18, 2014 3:38 PM

The answer if YES!

Ness Crouch's curator insight, April 15, 2015 7:14 PM

I completely agree. Time needs to be given to training teachers!!

Parental Involvement Is Overrated

Parental Involvement Is Overrated | On line learning platforms | Scoop.it

Most people, asked whether parental involvement benefits children academically, would say, “of course it does.” But evidence from our research suggests otherwise. In fact, most forms of parental involvement, like observing a child’s class, contacting a school about a child’s behavior, helping to decide a child’s high school courses, or helping a child with homework, do not improve student achievement. In some cases, they actually hinder it.

The Rice Process's curator insight, April 14, 2014 5:21 PM

These counterintuitive findings perplex me, as I have been a strong proponent of parental involvement during my career. I perceive parents to be partners in the whole education process. The authors suggest, "Parents should set the stage and then leave it."  I think that their recommendation for parents to deliver a creative message about schooling is important but I think that actions speak louder than words and that parents can reinforce that message from the ‘wings of the stage’ too.

"OK…so let me clarify that title. I honestly think textbooks are on their way out…or at least I hope they are. Really it should read “Flipboard as core curation artifact for classrooms” but that wouldn’t have you here reading now would it. "

With its magazine function Flipboard is an attractive cross platform means of curating and delivering content fro teaching purposes.

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, July 8, 2014 1:13 AM

Student created books generated from high quality collaborative curation strategies seems a very valid entry point to active learning.

Julie Bilz's curator insight, July 10, 2014 9:35 AM

I am ready for a world without textbooks in both K-12 and higher ed.  Bring it on!!

A New Fantastic Bloom's Taxonomy Wheel for iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A New Fantastic Bloom's Taxonomy Wheel for iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | On line learning platforms | Scoop.it
"Today while I was browsing through my Twitter feeds I came across this fabulous Bloom's Taxonomy wheel of apps shared by Anthony. If you still recall, some previous versions of this wheel have already been featured here in Bloom's Taxonomy for Teachers section . As you can see, the wheel outlines a wide variety of verbs and activities related to each thinking level of Blooms taxonomy coupled with iPad apps that go with it. These apps are supposed to help teachers and students better cultivate these different thinking levels in their use of iPad apps. And because the the visual is not hyperlinked, I went ahead and provided the links for each of these apps in the lists below. Enjoy"

Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy in the 21st Century Classroom - Edutopia

Using Social Media to Teach Visual Literacy in the 21st Century Classroom - Edutopia | On line learning platforms | Scoop.it

"Increasingly, educators are acknowledging and welcoming the relative advantages of social media into the teaching and learning process. From creating school Facebook pages to connecting students with experts via Twitter, social media has taken root as a legitimate classroom learning and communication tool. The highly linguistic nature of social media allows us to create and consume ideas and information unlike ever before. Much attention has been given to composing an articulate blog post and condensing our messages to 140 characters or less. However, effective use of this 21st century technology requires that we not only become proficient in textual communication, but also in our ability to express ourselves and interpret others' ideas through visual literacy."

Brilliant.. gamification here we go!

magnus sandberg's curator insight, October 1, 2014 4:23 AM

I don't know how I feel about Classcraft. Is it a way to make school more exciting or is it a way to make games more boring. Or both? Or neither? I dont know, but it certainly is interesting!

8 Things Truly Outstanding Leaders Do Without Thinking

Once in a while you meet a leader who stands out--even in a room filled with skilled, experienced, successful people. She isn't just remarkably charismatic. He isn't just remarkably likeable. You can tell, in an instant, they simply think and act and lead differently than most people. But those rare individuals don't become outstanding leaders overnight. While some are born with an aptitude for leadership, truly outstanding leaders are made. Through training, experience, and a healthy dose of introspection they learn how to make quick decisions. They learn to work with different personalities. They learn to nurture, motivate, and inspire. They learn to truly lead.

Toolkit "Problem-Based Learning: A Case Study of Sustainability Education"

Toolkit "Problem-Based Learning: A Case Study of Sustainability Education" | On line learning platforms | Scoop.it

This toolkit is one outcome of a three year project entitled: ‘Hybrid problem based learning: a scalable approach to sustainability education?’ funded by the Higher Education Academy's National Teaching Fellowship Scheme. It is a collaboration between Keele University, the University of Manchester and Staffordshire University. The project aimed to explore effective ways of adapting traditional problem – based learning approaches for the delivery of transformative sustainability education to large student numbers.

 

This toolkit is aimed at educators wishing to learn more about any one of the following areas:

-      traditional and hybrid problem-based learning;

-      delivering less resource intensive PBL;

-      the use of online learning technologies/social media in group-based teaching and learning;

-      education for sustainable development;

-      and, managing student group working dynamics.
