¿Cómo evitar que la tecnología y la ingente cantidad de aplicaciones y recursos nos desborden y podamos sacar adelante una actividad educativa con TIC?...

...porque la innovación no está en la tecnología, sino en qué queremos hacer en el aula.

Lauren Jackson's curator insight, February 19, 2014 3:50 PM

Another article that provides explicitly the essentials for Project Based Learning. The Buck Institute focuses on PBL to produce 21st Century Skills. Incorporating technology is fundamental in PBL. What worries me, as a future educator, is the unknown. I want to fully prepare my students with the skills they need, but we are preparing them for an unknown future. For example, in elementary school my computer class focused on "words typed per minute." But now students need to know much more than that when it comes to technology. How can we prepare globally competent students when we don't know what the global sphere will look like in 2020 and beyond?

Robin Kinney's curator insight, February 19, 2014 5:12 PM

This picture truly says 1000 words, which is why I like it.  While reading an article, this one or another, is necessary to understanding what PBL is, this graphic is an excellent at-a-glance reminder.  I'd actually like to take this image, transform it into a trumpet flower, then slide the graphic into the front of my planning binder to act as a beautiful reminder of what I should imbed into my lessons.

Harry Greenhouse's curator insight, February 20, 2014 9:57 PM

This article by BIE shows the basics to project based learning. The article shows the major important factors that make project based learning possible and how to do them. Like we covered in class, PBL's need to be significant and relate-able so they are interesting as well as have a driving question that works as the thesis statement for the project.

Teachers and technology: how engaged are we? by Lucy Blakemore on Prezi

In late 2011 we asked over 400 Navitas English teachers to tell us how they're using technology in teaching.

 

Interesting research!!!

Technology can sometimes be wasted on English language teaching

Technology can sometimes be wasted on English language teaching | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

Most important is the need for a different approach to teacher development that focuses on helping teachers with their own digital literacies. These are the skills to integrate technology into our daily lives and practices. Technology use, just like the language our students learn, needs to focus on things that are useful and that enrich and enable lives.

An interesting article and I must agree. Classroom based technology and inter-active language technology will bring only limited benefits to the language student vis-à-vis deeper cognitive development, unless accompanied with rich tools to develop full social integration skills with information technology and these skills start with the teacher.

Great article. Makes the case for some IT staff to be pedagogically trained... a universal need

How Teachers Make Cell Phones Work in the Classroom

How Teachers Make Cell Phones Work in the Classroom | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

At its core, the issues associated with mobile learning get to the very fundamentals of what happens in class everyday. At their best, cell phones and mobile devices seamlessly facilitate what students and teachers already do in thriving, inspiring classrooms. Students communicate and collaborate with each other and the teacher. They apply facts and information they’ve found to formulate or back up their ideas. They create projects to deepen their understanding, association with, and presentation of ideas.

Ashlee David's curator insight, February 13, 2014 12:40 PM

I can relate to this video. I feel most of my school career was memorizing facts to take a test then forgetting it so I could memorizing the new facts for the up coming test. We need schools to realize that this strategy isn't working and is not preparing students for the project based world we live in. By using project based learning we have students use critical thinking, collaboration, and communication to solve a problem. Students get involved and more hands on which will last in their memory longer then just trying to memorize facts for a test.
