Problem-Solving Activities With the Help of Technology

Problem-Solving Activities With the Help of Technology | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Problem-solving comes with numerous benefits. Teaching kids the art of problem-solving has many associated advantages, like, it teaches them how to avoid conflicts in school and in their daily lives, it strengthens their empathy skills, it helps them develop positive attributions and it is utmost required for school readiness and academic success. Generally, we would solve problems by identifying the problem, listing its possible solutions, weighing them one by one, choosing a solution to try, putting it into practice and evaluating it. Though this technique works for us most of the times, it has now become conventional and tedious. With the introduction of technology in every domain of our lives, why not introduce it to problem-solving as well. Now, when technology comes to aid us in problem-solving, it can quite revolutionize and rejuvenate the entire experience of it.

Why mobile learning?

Mobile learning is seen by many as a disruptive technology. This is because it has been identified as a technology which holds great potential to transform the learning and teaching within a classroom.

This video is a mash up presented at the NSWDEC 5th biennial equity conference in 2011 which explains some of the issues.

This video shows just a little of what can be achieved by using mobile learning devices appropriately.  All students can benefit from using this type of technology.

Karen Johnson's comment, February 13, 2013 5:28 AM
Yes it is about right here, right now but it is not about information on demand. It is about communication on demand and I think libraries are doing something about that.

ik vind dit een handige tool, omdat je niet zoveel hoeft in te stellen. Het werkt gewoon. Je iPad werkst als een soort server waarop je met een andere computer die op een beamer is aangesloten connect. Alles wat je schrijft op het 'whiteboard' van je iPad verschijnt op het bord. Je kunt ook schermen opslaan en een kopie maken.

Gewoon eens proberen!

Factors enabling the use of technology in subject teaching

Author: Begum Cubukcuoglu, Eastern Mediterranean University, North Cyprus

The importance of information and communication technologies in the teaching and learning process has been proven by many research studies to be an effective way of supporting teaching and learning. Although many teachers do not use new technologies as instructional tools, some are integrating information and communication technologies innovatively into their teaching. There are a number of factors which encourage these teachers to use information and communication technologies in the teaching and learning environment. This article discusses the factors that encourage Turkish Cypriot teachers to integrate technology into the classroom.

180 MOOCs to Start the New Year (Is This the Crest of the Wave?)

180 MOOCs to Start the New Year (Is This the Crest of the Wave?) | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
If you haven’t tried a free MOOC, I’d do it sooner than later. In recent weeks, the whole MOOC project took a hit when a University of Pennsylvania study found what was becoming empirically obvious — that MOOCs generally have very low participation and completion rates, and what’s more, most of the students taking the courses are “disproportionately educated, male, [and] wealthy,” and from the United States. This study, combined with other disappointing experiments and findings, will likely make universities think twice about sinking money into creating MOOCs (they can cost anywhere from $15,000 to $50,000 to develop). It might take another 6-12 months to see the shift. But I’d hazard a guess that this January might be the peak of the free MOOC trend. Enjoy them while they last. Whatever their shortcomings, they can be quite informative, and you can’t beat the price.

Very little of this do I find this surprising.

MFaculty's curator insight, January 7, 2014 10:44 PM

The insights revealed through the previous studies serves to codify what many educators, and even more marketers knew intuitively; free always begs the question of quality. Don't hear what I'm not saying. I'm not saying ALL MOOCs are low quality, I'm merely saying that without academic rigor and effective management, even the best intentions can slide off the rails.

 

I too had noted a number of previous MOOC supporters distancing themselves from the initiatives. Was there ever an identified demand for MOOCs, or were they simply a result of benevolent thinking? Regardless, it is interesting that the 'target audience' for MOOCs are apparently the ones taking least advantage of them. Perhaps the age old marketing rendition of supply and demand has merit still has merit.

Distance Learning: An Alternative to the Traditional Classroom

Distance Learning: An Alternative to the Traditional Classroom | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it
Distance Learning is well known concept but still hasn't reached its full potential. This post explores what distance learning still has to offer us.

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
Stewart-Marshall's insight:

A clearly presented summary of some of the main events that shaped distance education over the years. Slightly inaccurate to describe the Open University UK as "primarily using radio and television to deliver content".  I would suggest that in the learning process these were actually supplementary to the excellent print material and local tutorial system that the OU created.

Also a few missing, e.g., IGNOU as a "mega university", and Australia's "School of the Air" as a pioneer in the field.

"Looking for new ideas for how to use technology in your classroom in 2014?  Looking for colleagues to inspire your practice? Ideas to help integrate technology into your lesson plans? Look no further. One of the things we love most about teaching in the age of technology is the ability it gives educators to share innovation in the blogosphere and Twitterverse.  Connected educators can now share what's working (and not working) in their classrooms across the globe, quickly and easily.

Can e-learning promote participation of female students in STEM disciplines in higher learning institutions of Tanzania?

Can e-learning promote participation of female students in STEM disciplines in higher learning institutions of Tanzania? | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Authors: Camilius A Sanga, M Magesa, E E Chingonikaya and K K Kayunze
Sokoine University of Agriculture, Tanzania

The recent development of ICTs has brought many changes in different sectors. In Higher Learning Institutions, there are a number of positive changes. ICTs have brought efficiency, effectiveness and efficacy in the provision of the core functions namely: teaching, outreach, research and consultancy. Previous studies showed that even though there is improvement in teaching and learning through e-learning but few studies researched e-learning as tool for promoting female students to participate in science, technology and mathematics disciplines. This study was done to evaluate if the e-learning can promote the participation of female students in science, technology and mathematics subjects in different Higher Learning Institutions of Tanzania.

fastcompany.com - While ideas may appear to be only in your head, it turns out they’re super social: Darwin talked about evolution for decades before publishing the Origin of Species. And while it might be you that gets the promotion, it’s your connections up, down, and across a company that predict performance. Why? Because ideas are like germs: they don’t diffuse through populations of people at random; they make their way through networks –that is, the relationships you have with people and the connections they have with others.

Can an App Change How Students Prep for College Admissions?

Can an App Change How Students Prep for College Admissions? | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Prepify is a free, cloud-based software program that offers lessons in how to take standardized college entrance exams like the SAT and ACT.

While there are similar programs already out there — most notably Number2and INeedAPencil — Prepify differentiates itself by adapting to students’ progress in real time. If someone taking a Prepify lesson gets a question correct, it will then show him or her a more a difficult question. But, if the test-taker gets something wrong, the user will be directed back to more remedial work.

Prepify, which is still in the development stage, has tested the program on about two dozen kids, with each averaging up to a 100-point improvement on each of the three segments of the SAT.
