Mobile iEducator | reviewing the best apps for education | Science,Technology preschool to 2nd grade | Scoop.it

These are my favorite apps for demonstration projects and presentations. Click on the icon or the link to connect to the iTunes Store. HINT: I use many of these apps with screenshots taken from what we are studying. To take a screenshot on an Apple device, hit the home button and the on/off button at the same time and the device will automatically capture whatever is showing on your app’s screen. Need a photo of Abe Lincoln? Google it, zoom and frame it so it fits the entire screen, then take your screenshot. You can now import it as a photo into most of the apps below.

Terrible Times Lie Ahead for Bad Teachers

Terrible Times Lie Ahead for Bad Teachers | Science,Technology preschool to 2nd grade | Scoop.it

by Felix Jacomino

 

As I prepare a presentation on 21st Century Skills, I find myself dealing with having to first be clear on what they are NOT. Only because for many, the term "21st Century" is synonymous with technology. In this post, I won't get into the details of why it's not.

 

What I would like to share is my realization that terrible times lie ahead for bad teachers. Conversely, there has never been a more exciting time for a good educator than today and the near future!

 

In order to make a statement like that, I owe it to my readers to give my definition of each type of teacher.

 

Bad teachers:

Do not want to learn new things.

Have "the book" lead instruction and feel the need to always stick to it.

Are comfortable doing the same lessons (the same way) year after year.

Never step out of their comfort zone.

Live in their own bubble and do not see the need to live outside of it.

Only teach facts and assess the ability to memorize those facts ("Any teacher that can be replaced by a computer, deserves to be." -David Thornburg). 

Design tests to be easily gradeable.

Think that all progress in education are "fads."

Do not learn new things... oops, I already wrote that! It bears repeating because SOOOO much can be learned from other colleagues!

 

Good teachers:

Care whether their students find the learning relative.

Are ALWAYS looking for new ways to engage their students.

Embrace quality professional development as often as they can.

Learn from and share with other educators.

Have gotten this far into this post and are nodding their heads ;-)

 

My hopes are that we QUICKLY get to the point where teachers who do not inspire and engage will be seen as employees who are simply not doing their jobs and be let go. Or, they may move to schools that don't "get it" (yet) and find a safe haven there for now. Either way, it's time for ALL teachers to pick a side. And yes, there's plenty of room on the "good side" for bad teachers to make the change. Here's hoping!

Interesting good vs. bad

John Rudkin's curator insight, February 8, 3:07 AM

Interesting take, and of course true, i.e. "technology" is not 21st Century.  It is almost a constant - technology facilitates (or can, used correctly) good teaching, and offers opportunities to add variety, flexibility and relevance.  Used badly it can be irrelevant.

Mini Metric Olympics

Students in Grade 4 are studying metric measurement in math class with Mrs. Tappert and Mrs. Finlay. Yesterday afternoon, they participated in the Mini Metric Olympics.

 

Students rotated through seven stations where they completed a task and estimated and measured results in metric units. Stations were: Cotton Ball Shot Put, Marble Grab, Sponge Squeeze, Big Foot, Crab Crawl, Paper Plate Discus and Straw Javelin Throw. What a great hands-on way to learn math! Enjoy this slideshow of the afternoon!

Rachel Solomon's curator insight, December 3, 2013 1:45 PM

I think this is a really good article because it is written by a teacher, and he explains certain pieces of technology that "changed his teaching practice." This article could be very helpful to current teachers, as well as aspiring ones. Technology is very important now in our society and is becoming increasingly important in the classroom. It is important for teachers to know how to utilize all of these different pieces of technology.
