How has technology transformed the role of a teacher?

How has technology transformed the role of a teacher? | smith edu204 |
Technology allows students to become more independent in the classroom. But is the change from teacher to facilitator a positive move for the profession? Mike Britland is firmly in favour

Dico Krommenhoek's curator insight, June 20, 2013 3:19 AM

Goede tips van Mike.

- Ga uit van wat je leerlingen wilt leren en kijk dan of technologie iets toevoegt. Niet? dan niet inzetten. - Ga niet voor het laatste nieuwe product. Kijk of jouw "apparaat" kan wat jij met leerlingen wilt ondernemen. Misschien wel de beste tip: hou vol. Als iets niet werkt, probeer dan iets anders.

Technology, when used correctly, offers a lot of opportunity on a grand-scale.

Technology in The Early Childhood Classroom

Technology in The Early Childhood Classroom | smith edu204 |

We often talk about iPads in K-12 classrooms, the availability of information on the web for college students to access, and a host of other similar topics in too many categories to mention. But we don’t often broach the topic of technology in early childhood education classrooms.

Haylee King's curator insight, June 3, 2013 11:07 PM

This interesting creative information board provides educators with a range of reasons and results as to why technology is so important in the Early Childhood classroom context. It is interesting to see quantitative results that show concrete evidence of why technology education is viewed the way it is, and to look at how other schools or countries may compare. This ScoopIt could be used possibly in professional development gatherings or staff meetings in schools to provide a benchmark or topic of debate about technology use in schools today.

Kelly A. Roper's comment, June 9, 2013 1:04 AM
Thank you Haylee for this valuable information. I too have a Scoop.It page that focuses on creatively using technology in the early years classroom and it was indeed interesting to see in a survey format the percentage of teachers that are actually implementing technology into their lessons and in what ways. I am currently working in a school that has access to a wide range of ICT resources and yet has very little involvement with them. With so many resources available it is hard to understand why, but I believe it is because many teachers have little time to professionally engage with these resources and know little about how to utilise them in their lessons. This information would indeed be useful to share with teachers in staff meetings to encourage their involvement with technological resources.
Kelly A. Roper's curator insight, June 9, 2013 2:27 AM

Although we are encouraged as teachers using the Australian Curriculum (ACARA, 2012) to develop ICT capability in our students as they learn to use ICT effectively and appropriately to access, create and communicate information and ideas, solve problems and work collaboratively in all learning areas at school, and in their lives beyond school, we can see from this survey that really there are very few teachers in our early years classrooms making use of the technological resources available to them. I challenge teachers to view creative ways to implement technology and to invest their time in getting to know the programs and resources available to them.

Leuk om ideeën te krijgen en te creëren.

Bronwyn Desjardins's curator insight, October 31, 2013 3:43 PM

Great example of what Prezi can do.

Ian Korman's curator insight, February 3, 2014 3:19 AM

Prezi isn't new but it is still pretty innovative. I recommend using just to stick out from the PowerPoint crowd. You will really stick out if you use it as creatively as they did in this video.

A new survey shows that a partnership between parents and schools could lead to an increase in mobile learning.

Sarah Greening's curator insight, September 10, 2013 11:49 PM

With the support of parents advocating the use of mobile learning in classrooms, it is a step closer to integrating it succesfully into their childrens lessons. It will provide a better accessibility of a wealth of information on the internet, in educational apps, benefitting students and their developing knowledge.
