Vicki Mast's curator insight, September 13, 2013 11:24 AM

I just downloaded the free version which looks good, but may have to upgrade. The features look well worth the $3.99 price. You can move & resize your drawn objects, zoom in/out, etc. If you're working on creating "flipped classroom" videos, or how-to tutorials this may be what you need. Check out their website and user guide for the details.

A discovery about Facebook's official Android app once again puts into question if the social network's developers truly *get* security and privacy.

Untethered Teachers: Using AppleTV in the Classroom | Wired Educator | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it

"possible to be both a wired and unwired educator at the same time? Sounds like someone trying to explain Schrödinger’s cat (the cat is both alive and dead at the same time, Google it).  I’m talking about being “an untethered teacher.”  Sometimes, we end up tethered to the technology in our classroom.  To me, this is most evident with the interactive white board at the front of my classroom (I’ve intentionally omitted any particular brand name devices). Fortunately, I’ve been using AppleTV to untether myself from the front of the room."

Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, July 2, 2013 5:48 PM

Each student has a jagged learning profile. They have strengths, averages and challenges. If you design learning for the average, you design it for nobody. We have created learning environments where we can not expect learners to do what we want them to do.

 

The average hurts everyone. Designing average destroys talents in two ways:

> The existing educational environment can not challenge learners as it creates an environment where they become bored and sometimes dropout. 

> It means that your weaknesses will make it harder for you to see your talent.  

 

It is all about nurturing individual potential.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 3, 2013 11:16 AM

We learn more from disruptions and outliers, but we desparately want agreement.

Deborah Welsh's curator insight, August 14, 2013 1:00 AM

Average is an interesting concept. Pinning students down to numbers or percentages in terms of what they can achieve does them a disservice and never tells the real story.

Left-Brain Schools in a Right-Brain World

Left-Brain Schools in a Right-Brain World | School Psychology Tech | Scoop.it
More and more, our world is driven by right-brain thought. Sadly, consider what's happening today in schools. With a poor economy, budget cuts are being made across the country.

 

Daniel Pink shares some helpful insights about how our brains function in his book, A Whole New Mind. He describes the difference between left-brain and right-brain thinking. He argues that the old world is a left-brain world. The new one is a right-brain world.

 

Part of our dropout problem can be summarized in one phrase:

 

===> we are preparing students in "Left-Brain" schools to enter a "Right-Brain" world. <===

 

The school does not resemble the world they'll enter after graduation. If they graduate at all.
