Paula Jamieson's insight:

This should be talked about in EVERY schools staffroom!

Is technology being 'used' at your school or is being successfully integrated in all that you do?

 

Now's your chance to challenge, provoke and make change.

Paula Jamieson's insight:

I'm loving the look of this new app - Carousel - created by the makers of Dropbox (one of the few online tools which I have a paid account for and could NEVER be without!). There is even a fabulous little online video you can watch to learn all about it http://vimeo.com/91475918

 

I've downloaded it and watched the current buzz on twitter about it so I'll give you all an update soon as to how it has gone.....

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing and How Writing is Taught in Schools

The Impact of Digital Tools on Student Writing and How Writing is Taught in Schools | Switch On - "All things E-Learning" | Scoop.it
  via Pew Internet Overview A survey of teachers who instruct American middle and high school students finds that digital technologies are impacting student writing in myriad ways and there ar...
Paula Jamieson's insight:

The stats in this survey are just what I would expect, I wonder what they would have been if the survey was conducted in NZ schools? I would imagine a very different outcome. Having a global audience is definitely a driver for many students to become more digitally literate.

 

I am still surprised by the lack of access to technologies in some schools. For example, recently I worked in a school that only had access to one desktop per class and had purchased 4 ipads for 'shared' use across the whole school. I was employed to 'teach' the children operational basics of the device. It only took me 5 minutes to realise these kids not only knew there way around but were 'fluent' in them. When prompted I discovered more than half had devices at home and several had them (iphones) in either their pocket or schoolbag! If access to technologies is a barrier (at school) lets have those conversations and see what needs to happen to change this.

Bloom's Digital Taxonomy and Web 2 Tools

Adapting existing programs to enhance a digital learning environment. See more Bloom's Digital Web Tool resources at: http://bit.ly/10UYptv. More about me at: http://flavors.me/pipcleaves
Paula Jamieson's insight:

This Prezi made me think and make links back to how I am using a range of Web 2.0 tools in the classroom (and role modelling/sharing with teachers). How many tools do we use which support lower level thinking and questioning? How often do teachers actually swap a tradiional low level thinking tool (eg A to Z worksheets) for an online similar tool - 'old things, new ways'? 

 

This Prezi could be a valuable 'go to' resource for teachers beginning to delve into Web 2.0 tools as it may make them challenge the purpose and the thinking behind the tool - it would also be valuable for those of us that seem to have moved on from webbased tools to App based tools - never hurts to reflect and challenge.

Paula Jamieson's insight:

This is an interesting infograph, I hadn't heard of a couple of these sites and after investigating further can see the added value that they would bring to online collaboration and sharing. I think that this Digital Footprint needs to be created hand in hand with Digital Citizenship investigations and lessons. The inner text needs to be what students use and relate to in class and at home so that it is rich and real to the student.

The opportunity for free online cloud storage and access makes it a  finacially viable option for schools. The group, class, school and worldwide collaboration capabilities makes Google Docs and Google apps a powerful tool.

What a powerful learning experince! The QR code may link to a book review or a retell of a story, it may be a written or oral learning example. Anything that can has been creted or stored online (eg has a URL, web address, can be used to generate a QR code). Love the idea of recreating the QR code with lego, great Maths learning oppotunity and something that will 'stick' with the learner, fun and fascinating at the same time.
