What Personalized Learning Really Means For Modern Teachers

What Personalized Learning Really Means For Modern Teachers | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

added by Jennifer Kelly

 

It’s Not All About Technology

"Many people think that Personalized Learning is all about technology. It is not, although technology makes it more accessible in over-crowded classrooms. If an individual student has Internet access, that student can work independently while the teacher facilitates an in-depth discussion with a small group at another skill level. Technology empowers the teacher to keep a larger number of students at different levels moving forward simultaneously.

 

"Personalized Learning is also about improving the ability to assess student’s skills or growth in real time, rather than at the end of a unit or semester when it could be too late to redirect. Again, technology helps, but it is more about changing the mindsets of teachers, parents and students about how skills are measured and when. In addition, that ongoing assessment enables teachers and parents to better communicate about a child’s needs."

How Skype Became The Ultimate Free Teaching Tool

How Skype Became The Ultimate Free Teaching Tool | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

A little over a year ago, Skype launched its Skype in the Classroom platform, which connects teachers and classrooms with guest speakers, online lessons, and other classrooms. Today, there are 14,000 members and 14 partner organizations, including NASA and Penguin Books. "We’ve seen this underground grassroots movement. We’ve seen people start to use technology [in the classroom], and we realized we should start to kick it into high-gear," says Tony Bates, the CEO of Skype.

Bates’s favorite Skype in the Classroom projects include the classroom that found a beekeeper to take them on a virtual tour (the teacher wanted to demonstrate a beehive metaphor to the kids) and the pair of teachers that used the platform to co-teach from across town. " The engagement level of the students went way up," he says. "In a video setting, people are more engaged. They know they’re being watched."

wordsinedgeways's comment, August 8, 2013 10:34 PM
The curation comment is interesting... I think it's fantastic that students are able to gain these skills without the assistance of a teacher, but ultimately if they veer off the path or have been misguided, they will always need a facilitator to not only show students the tools but also give them some best practice ideas.

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

by Leanna Johnson

 

"Scoop.it collates work from online publications using an online magazine format, and this visual impact alone makes it very effective.

 

"The additional appeal of broadcasting from a hub allows me to tap into and share with my ed tech networks, which is why I find myself using it more often during time constraints.

 

"First of all, it’s powerful–it incorporates multiple elements of familiar social media tools. But it’s also very flexible–the mobile app is quite functional for both iPhone and Android, and a toolbar plugin can be installed on browser windows. Scoop.it’s athleticism makes it a time-saver; educators and students will quickly grasp its value in content gathering.

 

"Additionally, using Scoop.it will meet multiple standards (Common Core and NETS-S) across the curriculum. Students use critical thinking skills to collect, evaluate and analyze content; they may identify trends from discourse; they develop writing skills in original expression; and they interact, communicate and publish to a global audience. But perhaps more importantly, students practice digital citizenship and personal responsibility to lifelong learning.

 

"Curation is a valuable skill for today’s learner. In a culture of content overload, members that provide great content to their audience will be recognized leaders in network communities. Optimally, we equip students to differentiate good content from bad in preparation for their further education and careers. Curating an online topic (and allowing comments) also increases self-awareness and provides additional insight from others. The nuances of sharing content and writing to an audience become much better understood through interactivity between the curator and participating audience."

How Teens Do Research in the Digital World

How Teens Do Research in the Digital World | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

The teachers who instruct the most advanced American secondary school students render mixed verdicts about students’ research habits and the impact of technology on their studies.

According to this survey of teachers, conducted by the Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project in collaboration with the College Board and the National Writing Project, the internet has opened up a vast world of information for today’s students, yet students’ digital literacy skills have yet to catch up.

What Every College Student Should Post on LinkedIn

Are you waiting until after graduation to start building up your LinkedInprofile? It's time to reconsider.

"Every student is blindly trying to make a resume, but surprisingly many don't have great LinkedIn profiles," says Natan Edelsburg, senior vice president at Sawhorse Media. "I often hear, 'Here's my resume. My LinkedIn isn't great, but here's the link.' I usually respond, 'Make it great, and then get back to me!'"

Thirty-seven percent of surveyed job recruiters identified social professional networks as one of the most important sources for hiring. Social professional networks are also the fastest growing source of quality hires.

Still not convinced? Ninety of the Fortune 100 companies use LinkedIn's corporate talent solutions to find future hires.

MOOC Killer Apps: The Autograder vs. The Syndication Engine

MOOC Killer Apps: The Autograder vs. The Syndication Engine | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

There are lots of ways to describe the differences between xMOOCs--the courses produced by edX,Coursera, and Udacity starting around 2011--versus the cMOOCs--the original courses dubbed MOOCs in 2008 and 2009 by a number of university professors, mostly in Canada.

One of the best ways to distinguish between them is by thinking about their "killer app," the special tool that distinguishes them from previous generations of technologies.

Transforming education: Stop teaching and begin learning with your students

Transforming education: Stop teaching and begin learning with your students | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Many students learn to play the game and give back to the teachers what their teachers want to hear without really comprehending what it is they repeating. One educator calls this inert knowledge. Others call it 'fragile', 'trivial', or 'ritual'.Research shows that the 'prior knowledge' students bring to any learning situation has been shown hard alter. Many teachers are unaware of their students prior views ignoring educationalist David Ausabel’s advice ‘ascertain what the learner knows and teach accordingly’. All too often the more teachers’ teach the more students’ curiosity, the key to learning at any age, is lost.  Consider who asks all the questions in class.

5 Pinterest-like education sites worth trying out

5 Pinterest-like education sites worth trying out | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
All of these sites focus on learning and curation, but could one of them really be the "Pinterest of education"?

 

As one of the fastest-growing social networks, Pinterest's popularity can be attributed to its ease of use and vibrant Pinboards. Recently, a number of similar social curation sites developed specifically for students and teachers have popped up, emulating Pinterest in key ways while focusing on learning. In some cases, they have even made improvements.

 

Here are five such sites that could be contenders for the title "Pinterest of Education"
