               1. There are many uses for an ipad in the classroom. The ipad can help both the student and teacher. The students learn more,  can do more, and work together and get more than just there ideas out.  Students learn more from viewing more detailed presentations, they can see different parts of the world while just sitting at there desk, learn about whats happening in the world at that exact moment, practice problems and record notes. They can do more because with the ipads they can create more complex documents and presentations also they can have blogs and voice there own opinions to a broader audience.  Students get to work together with other people by using live broadcasts or making there own websites also they can use websites such as google docs to work with other students without actually being with them. If the ipads are used right they can be extremely helpful but teachers still need to watch and make sure the student stays on track when using the electronic device.

Brilliant selection of apps - I'm looking forward to trying more of them!

I enjoyed the lead off video of various speakers (students and teachers?) explaining plagiarism in their own words. 


As always, citation is the solution.

5 Assessment Strategies Every Teacher Should Know

 

Most teachers and current textbooks offer varied approaches to the material to be learned so the teaching can be brain-compatible with the varied student learning styles. It is only logical that respect for these individual learning styles be incorporated into assessment forms.

Option 1: Open-Book & Take-Home Tests

 

Option 2: Student-Made Tests

 

How My Students Create And Study For Their Own Exams

This is the process I use for student-created math final exams in my classroom. Your process may differ depending on grade level, content area, or other local concerns.

I give the structure for the tests students are required to create such as, “Include 15 calculations and 5 word problems with 2 from each of the 10 subsections of the chapter”I make a copy of each test and change the numbers, but not the structure of the equations. They knew I would do this and that the numbers will be different than the ones they usedStudents are assigned homework to make practice tests on their own, using the template of the test they created and changing the numbers themselvesIn class, for further review, students exchange their practice tests with partners for study and to the confirm accuracy of their answers (as I don’t have an answer key to all of their self-created tests)

Option 3: The Complexity & Diversity Of Project-Based Learning

Option 4: Written Response–Or Rather, The Pre-Writing

Option 5: Ask A Question


Great article.

10 Ways Teacher Planning Should Adjust To The Google Generation

 

For the Google Generation, information isn’t scarce, and knowing has the illusion of only being a search away.

 

I’ve written before about how Google impacts the way students think. This post is less about students, and more about how planning resources like standards and curriculum maps might respond accordingly.

 

Curriculum maps are helpful little documents that standardize learning. That is, they clarify the content to be learned, and offer a shared pathway and schedule to deliver that content to students. Curriculum maps function as a kind of overview of learning content, and can also provide a common ground for the reform of planned learning activities based on assessment data (O’Malley, 1982).

I do wish in Google Education, that Google would bring back the Google Wonder Wheel and Time line.  This was very useful in teaching with English Language Learners.

Kirsten Macaulay's curator insight, February 21, 8:43 PM

10 Ways Teacher Planning Should Adjust To The Google Generation & The Age Of Information

1. Make the work Google-proof

2. Force them to grapple with big questions without answers

3. Actually make social networks and media channels part of curriculum

4. Focus on learning strategies 

5. Create curriculum and lessons that absorb data seamlessly

6. Anticipate student needs

7. Focus less on “understanding”

8. Use spiraling by design

9. Discourage use of traditional units

10. Illuminate the nuance of the world

and bonus!

11. Promote discovery and curiosity and self-direction over coverage and compliance

 

The Age of Information is characterized by discovery, curiosity, whimsy, and connectivity–all which necessitate self-monitoring and self-direction.

Christy P.Novack's curator insight, February 23, 8:36 AM

A nicely written article with strong points on what is beneficial for students. However, the reality of implementing some of the tips is beyond just the teacher in the classroom and exposes other challenges. #edtech #instructionaldesign

Teaching my students the depth and breadth of knowledge necessary to pass this exam was a yearlong process.  Before my second year I decided to teach thematically instead of chronologically, anticipating that my students would learn more by studying a few key ideas in-depth than by exposure to a traditional survey approach. This meant I had to choose my themes carefully, so I could introduce many regions and eras under the umbrella of one big idea. My themes included industrialization, imperialism, and human rights, among others.

'Big History' created by Australian academic Professor David Christian, is a great new program to teach students the humanities as it combines a range of different learning areas and teaches everything all together. This project was recently acknowledged by Microsoft founder Bill Gates for it's brilliance and usefulness. This is an extrememely innovative way for students to learn history, science, economics and more in one coherent record. It's also an ICT method to teach which is really good seeing as how far we have advanced with technology. It is also an engaging way to teach the subject. I would definitely consider using this program when teaching the humanities.
