Born in Another Time - Report on the Role of Technology in Schools

Innovative technologies—from smartphones and smart TVs to iPads and even Leap Pads for preschoolers— have launched our children into a digital age, a period in which the average teenager texts 60 times every day, a large majority of teens have a social networking site, and the combined use of media by students averages 6.5 to nearly 10 hours daily, much of it in a multi-tasking environment. This generation of students truly has been born in a time very different from that of their parents, school board members, principals, and most of their teachers.

This is an interesting report with some interesting findngs -“Principals want new teachers to know how to use technology to create authentic learning experiences for students (75 percent) and how to leverage technology to differentiate instruction (68 percent) before they apply for a position at their school.”

Why Twitter and Facebook Are Not Good Instructional Tools

Helena Capela's curator insight, March 16, 2013 6:02 AM

I agree with the author. To create with technology and do it creatively is more important than simply use it. Balance and know how to do it is also important.

Jarrod Johnson's curator insight, March 16, 2013 11:37 AM

Although the heading is misleading, the author has brought up some good points. Most teachers go through three phases:

 

1. Excitement to try out new technological gimmicks in the classroom.

2. Discouragement after the gimmick no longer interests the students.

3. Integration of effective technology to enhance the student's learning.

 

The comments are also a great read and echo this sentiment.

Scaffolding for Deep Understanding

Scaffolding for Deep Understanding | teachers on the go | Scoop.it

That learning takes place in a social context is a significant issue. This is why collaboration or ‘cooperative learning’ has become so popular – but it has to be more than social collaboration. Cognitive collaboration needs to be encouraged. As students communicate their ideas, they learn to clarify, refine, and consolidate their thinking. Schoenfeld has said that, ‘Groups are not just a convenient way to accumulate the individual knowledge of their members. They give rise synergistically to insights and solutions that would not come about without them.’

How do you play?

How do you play? | teachers on the go | Scoop.it

All learning starts with games and play, but a lot of the time that element of play gets lost as our children grow older and education becomes more of a serious process of cramming for exams. How do you play? has lots of materials that can be used to bring playful learning back into the classroom and make it a much happier and more language productive place.

Is technology killing school? Should it?

Is technology killing school? Should it? | teachers on the go | Scoop.it

Gosh, all this hurts my brain! I’m captivated by the promise that Sugata Mitra seems to offer, but seriously alarmed (as always) by people who say we don’t need schools (because they have served humanity well when they have worked, it seems to me – though there is, of course, much that can be done better). I find the notion that all children will learn well with and from each other somewhat idealistic. And yet the idea that learning can come from a sense of wondrous enquiry is deeply attractive to me.
