Chrome Assistive Technology Toolbox

Chrome Assistive Technology Toolbox | Teaching in the NOW Century | Scoop.it

"As educators we believe that students with vision, hearing, physical, communication, and learning challenges have the same potential to learn as anyone else if the "mechanical" impediments to participation in the classroom are removed or lessened...We have attempted to collect many of the available apps and extensions which we believe could foster alternative forms of access for real learning to occur, with the ultimate hope of extending the definition as to who can be a learner in any particular setting."

Chrome has an amazing number of free apps and extensions that help to provide access to individual whom have 'vision, hearing, physical, communication, and learning challenges.' This website allows you to search for by task, profile or keyword and includes a Google Presentation "Co-opting Chrome to Help Learners." Although these apps may be marketed as geared to assistive technology they are useful for all students.

Teresa Pearl's comment, December 12, 2013 5:40 PM
This allows people to see all the tools available on Chrome. There are a ton of free apps that provide access to all learners. You can use the website to search for by task.

Projects In Web 3.0: Privacy Is The New Predator

Projects In Web 3.0: Privacy Is The New Predator | Teaching in the NOW Century | Scoop.it

"Student digital privacy is a critical currency, to be safeguarded by schools and pillaged by predators. Interactive, social Web 3.0 resources demand proactive ways to access tech tools and still preserve learners’ anonymity.
In the changing edtech landscape, student safety is taking on new dimensions and new gravity. When every online resource now is interactive and linked to social media, Web 3.0 often requires clever ways to give students access to the learning tools they need and still preserve their innocence."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 26, 2013 10:36 PM

How do we teach students the concept of privacy? How do we help them understand this concept when so much of their lives are online and open to all?

This post discusses how "privacy is the new predator", providing many resources to help you work with your students.

Have you heard about Facehawk? It is an interactive video that takes information from your Facebook account and creates a hawk that uses "photos and statuses from since your digital life began."

On one hand we tell students that they need to keep their private information private, yet websites ask them to upload their picture. To assist with this issue there is a list of websites that allow students to create avatars.

Additional resources focus on Digital Citizenship and Modern Internet Safety, Web 3.0, and New Media Literacy.

Technology Integration Matrix to Help Enhance Student Learning

Technology Integration Matrix to Help Enhance Student Learning | Teaching in the NOW Century | Scoop.it

"The Technology Integration Matrix (TIM) illustrates how teachers can use technology to enhance learning for K-12 students. The TIM incorporates five interdependent characteristics of meaningful learning environments: active, constructive, goal directed (i.e., reflective), authentic, and collaborative (Jonassen, Howland, Moore, & Marra, 2003). The TIM associates five levels of technology integration (i.e., entry, adoption, adaptation, infusion, and transformation) with each of the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments. Together, the five levels of technology integration and the five characteristics of meaningful learning environments create a matrix of 25 cells..."

Introducing the Digital Learning Quadrants

Introducing the Digital Learning Quadrants | Teaching in the NOW Century | Scoop.it

Let us agree, therefore, that regardless of age or situation, the learning process is one in which any learner can utilize formal, informal and social means to actually learn. It has nothing to do with generational divides.

If we were to re-categorize the foolish Prensky and Tapscott terms of Net Generation, Digital Natives and Digital Immigrants into a classification that encompasses all ages and takes into account the realities of access and participation levels, we might use the following:

Insightful 2x2 that nicely melds level of access x participation. Raises the question about which services meet the needs of each quadrant. 

Luca Brigada's comment, March 27, 2013 4:31 AM
A very interesting classification
Jesse Soininen's comment, March 27, 2013 4:36 AM
I allways felt that the term of digital natives was rather about the older generation not understanding what is happening and being intelligently lazy about learning the new vs. kids beign smart out of the keyboard.

Deep understanding of context is never easy thing to grasp. Fluent use of tools does not produce wisdom alone.

Explain Everything is a very powerful tool, initially teachers find it useful to use to produce resources for their students.  Using it with the students as a creation tool, from outlining how they completed a project to peer feedback and feedforward, is the next step.

This is an interesting way to look at and evaluate your child's engaement with school as well as your parenting. Are you encouraging "ritual compliance" or real engagement? And, for those of with kids with special needs, the behavior labels in the green boxes might be more helpful in terms of both describing what we see as well as considering in motivating our childen.
