5 Ways to "Remove the Walls" From Your Classroom | Alex Byland Blog | Edutopia.org

5 Ways to "Remove the Walls" From Your Classroom | Alex Byland Blog | Edutopia.org | Teacher Resources for Our Staff | Scoop.it

After the first day of school this year, I couldn't believe my luck! My seventh grade math and science students participated eagerly, worked well in groups, and followed our agreed-upon classroom procedures.

 

With the deck stacked in my favor, I was sure that this was going to be my best year of teaching thus far. However, after three to four weeks, the on-task behaviors waned across the grade as students seemed to focus more on personal squabbles than their classwork.

 

Simply put, the students were getting tired of one another. Even when I changed up the seating chart, planned purposeful groups, and taught interactive differentiated lessons, the students' bickering continued to get in the way of their learning. The honeymoon period was officially over!


5 Best Practices

I quickly realized that we needed to approach our classes in a drastically different manner to ensure that this school year would be successful. During collaborative planning, my colleagues and I decided to swap some students for an upcoming lesson to see if altering their routine and separating some conflicting personalities would have a positive behavioral impact.

 

We were astounded by the results. The students' participation skyrocketed, they interacted appropriately within their new peer groups, and best of all, they mastered the lesson. I asked myself, "Have we just discovered the key to resetting the glorious honeymoon period?"

Over the school year, our students made strong gains as we continued dabbling with purposefully regrouping them across our classes. I've compiled a list of five successful strategies so that you, too, can remove the walls from your classroom and work smarter, not harder, to see more effective results.

Gaming can help with kids' schoolwork, study suggests | CBBC | BBC.co.uk | Teacher Resources for Our Staff | Scoop.it

A new international report suggests that gaming regularly can help you to do better in tests at school.

Researchers tested 15-year-old girls and boys from 26 countries in 2012.

They wanted to find how gaming affected their learning, using computer and paper tests in maths, science and reading.

The results found that those who played single-player games every now and then, did better than those who never, or hardly ever, played games.


Some gaming = good maths + problems

Single-player gamers did particularly well in computer tests to do with maths and problem solving.

The researchers think this could be because they're more familiar with computer games, so they're more at ease with tests on computers.


Regular gaming = not so good at paper tests

However, the researchers also found that those who played games every day or very regularly did worse on paper-based tests.

They reckon too much gaming might crowd out other activities like doing homework and reading books.

NASA's New Horizons probe snaps first color image of Pluto | Nick Lavars | GizMag.com | Teacher Resources for Our Staff | Scoop.it

As it edges ever closer to its landmark flyby of Pluto in July, NASA's New Horizons spacecraft has returned its first color image of the dwarf planet and its largest moon Charon. This first blurry image marks the beginning of what will be an extensive and informative color photo series of the as-yet unexplored planet.

Since launching from Cape Canaveral in 2006, New Horizons has spent much of its 9.5 year journey in hibernation mode, preserving power for its awakening in December last year. Having now traveled more than 3 billion miles (4.8 billion km), it has since begun relaying data back to Earth. This started with black and white photos of Pluto and Charon in January, along with revealing images of smaller moons Nix and Hydra the month after.

The color photo was captured by New Horizon's Ralph color imager on April 9 and is the first ever colored photograph of Pluto taken by a spacecraft on approach. It was shot from around 71 million miles (115 km) away, significantly closer than its first black and white images taken at 126 million miles (203 million km), and transmitted back to Earth the following day.

The Guggenheim Puts 109 Free Modern Art Books Online | Open Culture

The Guggenheim Puts 109 Free Modern Art Books Online | Open Culture | Teacher Resources for Our Staff | Scoop.it

Back in January, 2012, we mentioned that the Guggenheim (the Frank Lloyd Wright-designed modern art museum in NYC) had put 65 art catalogues on the web, all free of charge.

We’re happy to report that, between then and now, the number of free texts has grown to 109. Published between 1937 and 1999, the art books/catalogues offer an intellectual and visual introduction to the work of Alexander Calder, Edvard Munch, Francis Bacon, Gustav Klimt & Egon Schiele, Fernand Léger, and Kandinsky. Plus there are other texts (e.g., Masterpieces of Modern Art and Abstract Expressionists Imagists) that tackle meta movements and themes.

Anyone interested in the history of the Guggenheim will want to spend time with a collection called “The Syllabus.” It contains five books by Hilla Rebay, the museum’s first director and curator. Together, they let you take a close look at the art originally housed in the Guggenheim when the museum first opened its doors in 1939.

Con el Blended Learning  los estudiantes y maestros llegan a experimentar con un método de enseñanza multimodal en la que el aprendizaje digital y virtual se mezcla con el presencial. Sin embargo, una de las ideas erróneas que circulan entre los que son menos entusiastas sobre el uso de este método de aprendizaje en las aulas es que el aprendizaje mixto no es otra cosa que la sustitución de los profesores con la tecnología. La infografía  echa por tierra este mito y cuenta los numerosos beneficios de aprendizaje combinado. Echa un vistazo y comparte con nosotros lo que piensa de él.

(From the article): Presentations have an important place in the corporate world. Whether presenting product releases or quarterly year reports, a nicely designed presentation captivates the audience. It increases the audience’s interaction and interest.  A well weaved narration of information in form of a presentation, can instill life to a plain and boring topic as well.

Apart from the corporate world, presentations are used in education as well. Teachers use presentations to deliver information that is successfully incorporated with videos and pictures, thus grabbing the attention of the students and enriching the learning process along the way.

While its hard to replace professional presentation designers, here is a list of some powerful tools that would help you to create interactive presentations in case of the absence of professional help.
