It really isn't, but we need to think about it metaphorically that way. Students and teachers who think about their thinking are building the metacognitive skills required in life.

Något nytt i denna artikel om det "nya" digitala samhället? #digiskol

Vanessa Camilleri's curator insight, August 21, 2:22 PM

People always seem to be complaining about this... our children are distracted... who wants to read when they can play games, but in effect children tend to copy their parents. By instilling a passion for reading from a young age we can try to balance out the claim that the young children do not like books or reading. One story a day... just like the apple, helps develop the creativity in children. It doesn't hurt by having the children making up their own stories and writing them together with their parents!

I so wish I could say: Daddy, thank you so much for the stories.

I so wish I could say: Daddy, thank you so much for the stories. | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"My father added a whole dimension to my childhood, one that I took for granted.

 

When my sister and I were little, we had an almost daily ritual with my father: drawing stories.

 

He would sit us on his lap and get out his clipboard, a piece of paper and his black click pen. He’d divide the paper into four parts, and draw as he told a story. Sometimes he drew old favorites and we knew what would be in each of the four drawings. Sometimes he let us decide what he should say and draw. But most of the time, we had no idea what would come next.

 

And that was really fun."

In Fatal Flash, Gaza Psychologist Switches Roles, Turning Into a Trauma Victim - Masters and PhDs

In Fatal Flash, Gaza Psychologist Switches Roles, Turning Into a Trauma Victim - Masters and PhDs | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Hassan al-Zeyada has spent decades counseling fellow residents of the Gaza Strip who experience psychological trauma. Now, as he prepares to aid his neighbors after a new round of combat and carnage, he has a challenging new patient: himself.

An Israeli airstrike demolished Dr. Zeyada’s family home on July 20, killing six close relatives, including his mother and three of his brothers.

“You try to help the people with their suffering,” the doctor said recently in his Gaza City living room, lined with psychology textbooks. “It’s totally different when you have the same experience.

Edison offers affordable and Lego-compatible robotics education

Edison offers affordable and Lego-compatible robotics education | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

With robots set to play a more prominent role in society in the coming years, it makes sense to find fun ways to educate youngsters on the technology. To that end, Thomas Alva has developed Edison, a palm-sized, bright orange, programmable robot compatible with Lego bricks that is intended as an affordable introduction to programming and robotics.

Named to reflect its “inventive spirit,” Edison features a host of sensors and runs on open source software. Each small bot is programmable and interacts with the world via IR transmitters and receivers, line tracking, barcode reading, playing sounds and music, and sound detection. One Edison can communicate with another over IR, with the units also able to be programmed to by controlled via TV and DVD remotes.

Sociotechnical Narratives in Rural, High-Poverty Elementary Schools - Masters and PhDs

Sociotechnical Narratives in Rural, High-Poverty Elementary Schools - Masters and PhDs | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The article’s purpose is to compare case studies of computer technology use at two rural elementary schools across two international settings. This study uses the Social Construction of Technology (SCOT) theory to guide this comparative investigation of how elementary school teachers and students in East Texas and South Asia construct meaning for computer technology. Building off of SCOT theory, the article also introduces the term, “sociotechnical narratives” as part of the analysis of the meaningful descriptions of ways that social groups use tools in relationship to their wider social context.

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning)

10 Things That Learners Pay Attention To (And How to Use Them in eLearning) | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"Even more than other types of education, eLearning must struggle to attract learners' attention: the Internet is full of distractions, and adult learners are both busier and more free to indulge in distractions. Helping students to pay attention is a primary concern of training professionals, so here are some optimal methods to win the attention game in eLearning."

What is it that help students pay attention?

* Problem solving

* Comparisons

* Visuals

* Questions

* Emotions

Mobile testing for Ebola gains renewed urgency as outbreak grows - About Health Degrees

Mobile testing for Ebola gains renewed urgency as outbreak grows - About Health Degrees | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

One small company, PositiveID, of Delray Beach, Fla., has developed a prototype device for testing for Ebola and other viruses and bio-threats, relying largely upon millions in federal dollars to fund its research. Developed in a lab in Pleasanton, Calif., the device looks like a mini-clamshell laptop. When closed, it is somewhat smaller in width and length than the iPad Mini, but much thicker — about 2 in. It weighs about 2 lbs.

Called the Firefly DX, it can be used to test a sample of a person’s blood or other bodily fluid for the presence of Ebola and other diseases at an airport screening area or a remote field location within 10 to 15 minutes.

Edutopia is one of my favourite web sites. It has recently run a series written by Monica Burns aka @ClassTechTips featuring Resources for Using iPads across multiple grade levels. Though I've featured them each individually here on iPads in Education I thought it might be useful to post all of the series in one collection.

When some students graduate from college, they cross their fingers and hope and pray that they’ll get a job offer. But wouldn’t it be better to have employers come looking for you?

So how can you get employers salivating? Your demand in the marketplace may depend on your major, according to a 2014 survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE). The Association polled its employer members to determine employment trends and the survey results reveal that some degrees are much more popular among employers than others.

Greater Reach and a Greater Audience with Empire Avenue #empireavenue | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

#empireavenue  Getting greater traction for your business is all about content marketing these days. And that means lots of sharing on social networks. But the problem for small businesses is that their own social networks can be rather small. So how can you get a greater reach and a greater audience for your content – and hence for your business?

Of course, you could pay to get Facebook or LinkedIn to promote your posts, or you could pay for Twitter to promote your tweets. But as I found to my cost, your limited budget is soon exhausted by each of these options. A far better proposition is to run “missions” on Empire Avenue in order to get greater exposure for your content.

Personalized Learning: Schools without Classrooms - Masters and PhDs

Personalized Learning: Schools without Classrooms - Masters and PhDs | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Vittra runs 30 schools in Sweden and wants learning to take place everywhere in its schools, so it threw out the “old-school” thinking of straight desks in a line in a four-walled classroom. They eliminated all of its classrooms in favor of an environment that fosters children’s “curiosity and creativity.” The schools are non-traditional in every sense: there are no letter grades and learners learn in groups at their level, not necessarily by age. Admission to the school is free, as long as the child has a personal number (like a social security number) and one of the child’s parents is a Swedish taxpayer.

Education administration master’s degrees, (and variants such as education management master’s or educational leadership master’s) are designed for careers in elementary and secondary school administration, college administration, and educational supervision, management and leadership. Many colleges and universities offer these masters programs online. This page provides information on what is studied in these degrees and provides links to where you can study them online.
