50 Things To Do On The iPad | TeachThought

50 Things To Do On The iPad | TeachThought | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

From the website

 

"While the iPad is not the savior for learning–or even mobile learning for that matter, if you use one for five minutes it’s easy to see that it is an amazing piece of hardware.

 

"We’ve talked about how to use them in a PBL environment. And how to record ideas with them. And even separated ideas for using the iPad in the classroom by complexity. (Or, see ten of our top iPad posts here.)

 

"But what else can it do? From the whimsical to the interesting, below are 50 things to do on the iPad."

Why Creativity in the Classroom Matters More Than Ever | Edudemic

Why Creativity in the Classroom Matters More Than Ever | Edudemic | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it
In his popular TED talk, Ken Robinson made the powerful point that most of the students doing work in your classrooms today will be entering a job force that none of you can visualize.


That talk is from almost ten years ago, so we already know he was right and can only assume he’ll continue to be so in the years to come.

Encore un réseau social pour en savoir sur l'e-learning.... L'avantage de Pinterest par rapport à d'autres, est que l'aspect visuel est encore plus important. Parce que c'est visuel, il faut encore plus se concentrer sur le message à faire passer. Merci à l'auteur de nous y envoyer.

Why It’s Imperative to Teach Students How to Question as the Ultimate Survival Skill

Why It’s Imperative to Teach Students How to Question as the Ultimate Survival Skill | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it

Are our schools doing a good job of preparing students for a world where questioning is a survival skill?


Einstein understood that questioning is critical to learning and solving problems. If he were alive today, Einstein would see a world in which questioning has become more important than ever before. But he might also be left wondering why, for the most part, we still don’t encourage questioning or teach it to our children.

5 Free Tools For Making Digital Portfolios | Edudemic

5 Free Tools For Making Digital Portfolios | Edudemic | Social Media 4 Education | Scoop.it
Students create a truly outstanding amount of work over the course of a year. Back when everything was done on paper, most of that work was either thrown in the trash, stuffed in a drawer somewhere, or stuck in a box in the garage. How many essays, stories, you labor over during your years as a student that you’ll never see again?

Now that so much of what students create in school (and in life) is in the digital realm, teachers have an opportunity to help students value their work more and for longer. Digital portfolios allow students to collect the work they’re most proud of and see their progress over time in a tangible way.
