5 Apps for Learning and Media Creation for Elementary Students in the Inclusive Classroom

5 Apps for Learning and Media Creation for Elementary Students in the Inclusive Classroom | Tricia's articles | Scoop.it

"When using iPads with students, consider apps which allow students opportunities to create media which demonstrates understanding and lets them show what they know and how they feel. This is a very engaging, challenging, and meaningful way for students to learn and for teachers to understand and assess what their students comprehend."

Maria Lupandina's curator insight, April 20, 2013 11:27 AM

Удобный инструмент для управления поведением и даже успеваемостью учеников. Ученики "награждаются" баллами за проявление своей активности на уроке, как положительной так и отрицательной. В итоге выводятся таблицы, которые можно отправить родителям. На этом сайте есть возможность по умному рассадить учеников за партами, учитывая заданные критерии. Коллеги одной школы действуют с одними и теми же учениками, необходимо только выслать приглашение на сайт.

На выбор предлагается английский или испанский язык интерфейса, к сожалению, снова без русского.

Perhaps the most difficult aspect of project-based learning for me was figuring out how I was going to assess it.

Standard based assessment is great for teachers to see specific skills students need help on, specific concepts, provides clarity and guided instruction that is focused on student learning

If you have ever taught IB, or if you innovate to the point that textbooks lose their significance, then this article is for you. BTW, LiveBinders is a great choice for collecting resources into easily used units

The voting 'eggs' in the suitcase, where each needed to be programmed, are obsolete.  Students and teachers can use their web devices to quickly set up polls and other interactive feedback quickly and easily with web based options, of which this is one of the simplest.  For iPad users, check out NearPod, Socrative, or Doceri, each with its own feature ist, to see which works best for you!  It can be difficult to move from traditonal modes of presentation to building interaction into instruction, but I am trying to plan future PD courses using this type of technology.  I would love feedback from teachers and professional development specialists about what works, pitfalls to look out for, and any other resources that you may suggest.

Terrible Times Lie Ahead for Bad Teachers

Terrible Times Lie Ahead for Bad Teachers | Tricia's articles | Scoop.it

by Felix Jacomino

 

As I prepare a presentation on 21st Century Skills, I find myself dealing with having to first be clear on what they are NOT. Only because for many, the term "21st Century" is synonymous with technology. In this post, I won't get into the details of why it's not.

 

What I would like to share is my realization that terrible times lie ahead for bad teachers. Conversely, there has never been a more exciting time for a good educator than today and the near future!

 

In order to make a statement like that, I owe it to my readers to give my definition of each type of teacher.

 

Bad teachers:

Do not want to learn new things.

Have "the book" lead instruction and feel the need to always stick to it.

Are comfortable doing the same lessons (the same way) year after year.

Never step out of their comfort zone.

Live in their own bubble and do not see the need to live outside of it.

Only teach facts and assess the ability to memorize those facts ("Any teacher that can be replaced by a computer, deserves to be." -David Thornburg). 

Design tests to be easily gradeable.

Think that all progress in education are "fads."

Do not learn new things... oops, I already wrote that! It bears repeating because SOOOO much can be learned from other colleagues!

 

Good teachers:

Care whether their students find the learning relative.

Are ALWAYS looking for new ways to engage their students.

Embrace quality professional development as often as they can.

Learn from and share with other educators.

Have gotten this far into this post and are nodding their heads ;-)

 

My hopes are that we QUICKLY get to the point where teachers who do not inspire and engage will be seen as employees who are simply not doing their jobs and be let go. Or, they may move to schools that don't "get it" (yet) and find a safe haven there for now. Either way, it's time for ALL teachers to pick a side. And yes, there's plenty of room on the "good side" for bad teachers to make the change. Here's hoping!

Interesting good vs. bad

John Rudkin's curator insight, February 8, 2014 3:07 AM

Interesting take, and of course true, i.e. "technology" is not 21st Century.  It is almost a constant - technology facilitates (or can, used correctly) good teaching, and offers opportunities to add variety, flexibility and relevance.  Used badly it can be irrelevant.
