Resource Roundup: The Pencil Metaphor - The Point, Labor, And Fun | teaching and technology | Scoop.it

"For most educators, back-to-school decorations still include the proverbial apple, school bus, writing strips, and black and white composition notebooks...

Looking back, we wanted to round up some of our favorite resources that highlight the pencil as a metaphor for leadership, work, and fun."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 28, 10:41 PM

Perhaps you remember a few years back when the pencil became a viral hit on Twitter. Think back to the year 2011 and recall how tablets were becoming "the next best thing" in education. How was this technology going to be integrated into the school day?

This post provides a number of resources that moves the pencil beyond that viral chat. You will find an image of the pencil with each component representing various groups of people often found in schools.

The video, iPencil, takes a look at what actually goes into making a pencil, and will teach students about how one product impacts much of the world. And last, but not least,, is the Ode to #PencilChat, a short video that looks at technology integration in the classroom.

Why look at the pencil? Here are the last two lines of this post. "Whether metaphor, symbol, or tool, the pencil is flexible, durable and timeless. We wish everyone a great school year."

The Pencil as a metaphor for educators and technology. 

I have yet to have a student ask, 'I won't do this because no-one's given me any PD.'

“We don’t even know if anyone is listening, 
being alone isn’t a problem
let me just emphasise 
read a book, paint a picture, 
or do some exercise
you’re being productive and present, 
not reserved and recluse” 

Sue Alexander's curator insight, May 5, 9:24 AM

a good reminder for all; well worth watching

Michelle Gilstrap's curator insight, May 5, 2:46 PM

This is a great reminder to put down our phones and computers and relate to life. It is short, but impactful
