20+ Ways to Integrate iPad in Your PBL Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

20+ Ways to Integrate iPad in Your PBL Classroom ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | SciTEACH21Cscoop | Scoop.it

"Ae you looking for some inspiration and new ideas on how to integrate iPad in your PBL based classroom? The graphic below from our colleagues in Teachthought is a wonderful start. Project based learning, as we have constantly argued in our previous posts, is a powerful pedagogical approach to learning and teaching. The core tenets underpinning the philosophy of PBL are grounded in socially collaborative and constructionist theories of learning. PBL enhances students learning through engaging them in real-life and authentic learning tasks and when coupled with digital media and technology, PBL can be more empowering to students."

At each stage of the inquiry process these stem questions will apply. Add in the action verbs from Blooms Taxonomy and you will definitely create a dynamic learning environment.

Our students of poverty enter school behind and by the time they are in middle school, the achievement gap has widened.  Often the answer is to remove the struggling students from electives and place them in remediation courses for math or reading, robbing them of the rich contribution arts makes to the lives of middle and upper class children. Innovation must guide our efforts to close the gap, providing not just remediation but enrichment to our children of poverty.

Actions Speak's curator insight, August 17, 2015 10:54 AM

In a weak culture, unacceptable performance is rewarded.  The standard for what is acceptable gets lowered.

 

Our public education system is not best in class.  Education bureaucrats are getting rewarded for unacceptable performance.  Too many kids are not getting an education that prepares them to effectively compete .

 

What kind of questions would you ask if you were a top education leader in your state, county, or city?

 

How about some of these?

 

1) when are going to stop passing kids that can't do the work at the current level?

2) how are we going to close learning gaps with a sense of time is of the essence?

3) what needs to change in our approaches to teaching to drastically improve learning results?

4) if what we are supposed to achieve is kids learning at a high level then what about all the resources allocated to transportation, duplicate administrators, government edicts, athletics, ...?

5) what do other cultures with high performance education systems do differently?

6) do you ask the teachers what they need to close gaps and energize the kids to learn at a much higher level?

7) do you have the courage to think out of the box and go against the politically correct that rewards blind compliance to government ideology?

 

"If a child can't learn the way we teach, maybe we should teach the way they learn" -- Ignacio Estrada 

 

Isn't it time to rethink our approach?

 

Yes.  It is way past time!

What happens when middle schoolers take to Twitter? They become learners

What happens when middle schoolers take to Twitter? They become learners | SciTEACH21Cscoop | Scoop.it
Most research on the use of Twitter for learning has been conducted with undergraduate and graduate students. Research with teenagers, however, has found that students use social media for self-expression, communication, friendship maintenance and information.

So, recently, one of our partner teachers explored the potential of social media to promote learning. Ryan Becker, a teacher at a public middle school, wondered if Twitter might be an effective way to extend classroom learning and to link students to “real world” science.

8 Technologies That Will Shape Future Classrooms

8 Technologies That Will Shape Future Classrooms | SciTEACH21Cscoop | Scoop.it

What does the future of learning hold? What will classrooms of the future be like? Emerging technologies such as cloud computing, augmented reality (AR) and 3D printing are paving the way for the future of education in ways we may have yet to see. At the very least though, we can extrapolate from what these promising technologies and predict how schools will adopt them in time to come.
