50 Questions To Help Students Think About What They Think

50 Questions To Help Students Think About What They Think | Education | Scoop.it

Using the right questions creates powerful, sometimes multiple answers and discussions. Aristotle said that he asked questions in response to other people’s views, while Socrates focused on disciplined questioning to get to the truth of the matter.

It is so important to ask the right questions - those that stimulate thinking, discussion and further investigation

Lourense Das's curator insight, June 29, 2014 6:44 AM

Ask the right questions and help yourself to think

Jan MacWatters's curator insight, July 7, 2014 7:30 AM

I was always taught that you have to ask the right question to get the right answer...and teaching students to think about developing and pursuing questions is an important part of the process.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, May 29, 8:51 AM
This week I had the chance to lead a virtual reality lesson with a group of second graders. It was absolutely amazing to see the students spinning around and looking side-to-side as they explored the top of a mountain and the bottom of the ocean. On this 360 Thursday I wanted to share some of my absolute favorite resources for virtual reality in education. Whether you’re totally new to this concept or looking for new educational VR apps to add to your toolkit, there are lots to choose from! Don’t worry, I’ll tell the whole story of my second grade virtual reality exploration in a June post (sign up here to get it in your inbox). And if you want an e-Book for summer reading you can grab my free getting started guide for virtual reality in education by clicking here.
The list below includes virtual reality apps for mobile devices and websites that give you quick access to virtual reality videos for your classroom. Of course, having a headset like the low-cost Google Cardboard is great but most of these virtual reality in the classroom resources work on web-browsers too. If you have a favorite you think I should add to the list, make sure to leave a comment at the bottom of this post!

I got it off Google Images… | Education | Scoop.it

I often ask teachers if they use Google Images for the pictures they use in the resources they make for the classroom.
The majority of teachers tell me they use Google Images for all their images. They simply go to the site, search for their image, grab the best one and use it. I get why people would do this; it’s quick, easy to do and inside the Google search comfort zone. Doing this however is wrong, as seemingly too few of us know.

Digital Engagement – How Technology Enhances the Student Experience

Digital Engagement – How Technology Enhances the Student Experience | Education | Scoop.it

It’s amazing what we can do with a series of ones and zeroes. Modern technologies consisting of databases connected to interfaces that deliver functionalities that improve our day to day lives. The creative and imaginative ways in which we make meaning, offer services, engage, and even make predictions for future success are all predicated on a variety of technology-based solutions. In higher education, our use of technology has always run in step with the world around us. From the days of old when punch cards held reams of research to the present day when information is stored in data-rich, mobile accessible clouds, the student experience is directly connected to an institution’s technology.

Teaching in the machine age: How innovation can make bad teachers good and good teachers better | Education | Scoop.it

School systems face a number of challenges, including teacher shortages, a lack of clear methods for developing high-quality teachers, and teacher burnout and attrition, to name a few. And even the best teachers struggle to address the diverse learning needs of their students or find time to focus on developing students’ deeper learning and noncognitive skills amidst pressures to cover core instruction.

The Evolving Role of the Teacher

The Evolving Role of the Teacher | Education | Scoop.it

More teachers today are providing opportunities for their students to connect and learn in powerful ways. There is an increasing focus on collaboration, competency-based learning, use of open resources, project-based learning, and learning environments are shifting to support these new opportunities. These shifts are accelerated by access to technology that has transformed how we learn and interact with one another.

Developing Self-Directed Learners: Teaching Students to Set Their Course

Developing Self-Directed Learners: Teaching Students to Set Their Course | Education | Scoop.it

High engagement schools start from a different conception—knowledge co-creation and active production. They design a very different learner experience and support it with a student-centered culture and opportunities to improve self-regulation, initiative and persistence—all key to self-directed learning.

Can technology replace teachers? You asked Google – here’s the answer | Harpreet Purewal | Education | Scoop.it

Another area of difficulty for technology that is key to teaching is quick thinking. Any number of things can and do go wrong on a school day: a guest speaker cancels, the whiteboard freezes, buses are delayed or – the ultimate horror – the photocopier breaks. Human beings are able to think on their feet and reformulate their plans to adapt to new circumstances. Machines aren’t able to do this. Thinking on the spot is a key skill of teachers, and many cite the variety of the job as a reason for entering the profession in the first place.
