Technology is a tool to enhance learning outcomes, and when used appropriately, it is not the tool that matters, but the learning and experiences we can provide for our students that matter most.
Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, April 7, 11:28 PM
An interesting concept is that good teachers teach the wrong things very well.

The teachers I am interviewing tell me that teaching and learning are only separated by a thin membrane which is very permeable. What does that mean in schools, for teaching, and for learning?

Blended Learning Toolkit: University of Central Florida and the American Association of State Colleges and Universities

Blended Learning Toolkit: University of Central Florida and the American Association of State Colleges and Universities | Proffessional Development | Scoop.it
Abstract

The Blended Learning Toolkit supports the course redesign approach, and interest in its openly available clearinghouse of online tools, strategies, curricula, and other materials to support the adoption of blended learning continues to grow. When the resource originally launched in July 2011, 20 AASCU institutions used it, but now universities, colleges, and K–12 schools from around the world access the Blended Learning Toolkit.

This grantee profile from Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) provides at-a-glance information, course model design details, grant project activities, results and outcomes, participant impressions, next steps, and additional resources.

NGLC accelerates educational innovation through applied technology to dramatically improve college readiness and completion in the United States. To learn more about NGLC and the grantees it supports, visit nextgenlearning.org

With iOS 8, Apple expanded the iPad’s ability to share information in many different ways.  This has long been a frequently requested feature that was already available on various other mobile platforms in one form or another.  Sharing information and data, in any form, can be a very useful tool for all iPad owners.  I want to discuss three of the best ways iPad users can share information, and the processes they can use to make this possible.

Reframing Negative Experiences: 6 Questions that Help Kids Learn from Failure - Brilliant or Insane @AngelaStockman

Reframing Negative Experiences: 6 Questions that Help Kids Learn from Failure - Brilliant or Insane @AngelaStockman | Proffessional Development | Scoop.it
When students reflect in order to reframe negative experiences, they find themselves better able to learn from failure and eventually move beyond it.

Inviting kids to reframe perceptions that cause them anxiety, grief, or pain is important work that all teachers should be prepared to do.

Reframing begins with the awareness that our unique values, beliefs, and experiences shape how we make meaning of different events. When we understand this, we realize how limited our perspectives often are.

Reframing a negative experience allows us to consider different possibilities, explore varied interpretations of it, consider alternative actions and behaviors, and shape potential solutions.

Questions like these can help students reframe negative experiences and manage their stress. They also shine a bright light on what can be gained from their struggles.

7 Science-Backed Ways You Can Reduce Stress Today | Proffessional Development | Scoop.it
We all experience stress in our lives. Some of us experience stress once in awhile, while others face it on a daily basis.

Whether you’re one of the few people who perform better under stress or not, the side effects of stress are clear. Stress has been shown to increase the risk of disease or illness, lead to premature aging, and weaken your immune system.

Here’s a helpful diagram of how chronic stress works and how it can act as a negative feedback loop in our brain.

As someone who can spend hours looking for the right image to go with a story, this article speaks to me. People learn and respond to things differently. Having a powerful image to help your story come to life is very important. As this article demonstrates, technology is being developed to support story and support our desire for visuals in social media. Some helpful info here!

5 steps for creating a custom makerspace | eSchool News | eSchool News | Proffessional Development | Scoop.it
I believe that every child has the right to invent, tinker, create, innovate, make, and do. The maker movement has created opportunities for all educators to give students authentic learning opportunities that go beyond the typical classroom experiences and to rethink traditional learning environments to include those that nurture the kinds of creativity and innovation that will benefit our students both in school and beyond. We know children learn by exploring and playing and doing and making and that these kinds of things lead to deeper engagement. The maker movement embodies opportunities for experimentation and innovation to occur across all grade levels and all content areas.

Physical makerspaces have allowed us the opportunity to pull some of this excitement of the maker movement into our schools. Makerspaces can help set the stage for meaningful student learning, as well as help cultivate a culture of innovation within a school. My makerspace inspires innovation, passion, and personal motivation and interests, and has encouraged students to pursue STEM subjects and careers.

Since I first started my Makerspace at Stewart Middle Magnet School in January 2014, I have received a lot of positive feedback. I’ve given talks, presented at conferences, and shared about our experiences through my blog and through social media.  Some of the questions I am most frequently asked are: Why should makerspaces be in the library?  Why not just convert a classroom into a STEM lab?

In a similar vein, I often hear from librarians who are struggling to get their administration/teachers/community to understand the rationale for having a Makerspace in their library.  Aren’t those kids just playing?  Shouldn’t libraries be quiet and clean?  How does this tie in with the curriculum?

How we react to these types of questions are crucial in our advocacy for our spaces.  Here’s some ways to respond.

"I brought a superhero into my classroom the other day. He wasn't wearing a cape. He didn't have an alias. But he had the greatest superpower of all: inspiration.

When you teach using project-based learning (PBL), one brings outside expertise into the classroom. My eighth graders begin the year creating science fiction based origin stories for original superhero characters as an introduction to a greater advocacy unit. Therefore, it seemed natural to bring in an actual scientist. Which brought me to CalTech and Dr. Spyridon Michalakis."
