What can I do for you?

What can I do for you? | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

In the twenty-first century we are faced with a basic rule. When someone has their survival strategy based on knowledge of a single technology is doomed to failure. Nevertheless, if this strategy is based on constant updating and lifelong learning so it's easier to augur success.

Three Types of Assignments that Speed Feedback, Boost Student Engagement

Three Types of Assignments that Speed Feedback, Boost Student Engagement | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

We often wonder what we can do to help students engage with the material so they can learn it at a deeper level. Students don’t make that an easy task. They arrive in class having not read the material or having not thought about it in meaningful ways, and that keeps them from being engaged in class.

 

Several years ago, I read George Kuh’s article “What Student Engagement Data Tell Us about College Readiness,” in which he writes, “Students who talk about substantive matters with faculty and peers are challenged to perform at high levels, and receive frequent feedback on their performance typically get better grades, are more satisfied with college, and are more likely to persist” (Peer Review, January 1, 2007, p. 4; italics mine). Here are three ways I try to provide feedback that engages students and not overwhelm myself with grading tasks in the process.

How Asia is Emerging as the World's Edtech Laboratory | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

"If the US is the world’s education technology leader, Asia is fast becoming its most critical testing ground. The reasons are unambiguous: Asia has the world’s largest pool of K-12 and college enrollments with acute needs for further educational access; deep internet and social media penetration; hypercompetitive examination systems and a wide dispersion of household affordability."

A Sensible Way to Look At EdTech Integration

A Sensible Way to Look At EdTech Integration | Teaching in the XXI Century | Scoop.it

"In the early days of my work in helping schools integrate technology, I remember how frustrated I was when I'd walk into a school and witness how devices were used. In so many classrooms, students would take what was written on loose leaf paper and type their work into a computer. Next, they'd print it out. The teacher would mark it up, and they'd type in the new version.

Ack!"
