University student engagement using digital curation and career goal setting

University student engagement using digital curation and career goal setting | Teaching with CALL | Scoop.it
Around the world, participation rates in tertiary education are on the rise and one of the key challenges facing educators is finding ways to engage these students. We present the results of a project that assesses the impact of an engagement strategy in which a cohort of students entering their first year of university (1) establish and maintain a clear goal of their ideal future career and (2) make use of a web-based digital curation tool to research and present their findings.

When Virtual Reality Meets Education

When Virtual Reality Meets Education | Teaching with CALL | Scoop.it

Educators and students alike are seeking an ever-expanding immersive landscape, where students engage with teachers and each other in transformative experiences through a wide spectrum of interactive resources. In this educational reality, VR has a definitive place of value.

This article shares how virtual reality is slowly showing up in education. Are we ready for this disruption?

Linda Buckmaster's curator insight, February 3, 1:38 PM

While statistics on VR use in K-­12 schools and colleges have yet to be gathered, the steady growth of the market is reflected in the surge of companies solely dedicated to providing schools with packaged educational curriculum, content, teacher training and technological tools to support VR­-based instruction in the classroom.

Viljenka Savli (http://www2.arnes.si/~sopvsavl/)'s curator insight, February 10, 11:44 AM

It seems we can hope to use it also in education pretty soon.

Why the 21st Century Classroom May Remind You of Starbucks

Why  the 21st Century Classroom May Remind You of Starbucks | Teaching with CALL | Scoop.it

It’s been my dream to make my 2nd grade classroom look more like a “Starbucks for kids”, and less like, well, a classroom.

Think about when you go to Starbucks to complete some work. Why do you choose to work there? Where do you choose to sit?

Nik Peachey's curator insight, January 28, 4:43 AM

I'm not really a fan of Starbucks, but nice concept and the classroom is certainly due for a change.

Viljenka Savli (http://www2.arnes.si/~sopvsavl/)'s curator insight, February 10, 11:46 AM

You have to be brave enough and have resuorces and a big classroom so the dreams can come true. ;)

What's So Innovative About Salman Khan's One Room Schoolhouse?

What's So Innovative About Salman Khan's One Room Schoolhouse? | Teaching with CALL | Scoop.it

The one-room schoolhouse may have opened in 2014, but Khan was dreaming about it long before that. “Even before Khan Academy, when I used to daydream with my friends, I thought, ‘Hey, I’m gonna do this career long enough until I can somehow start a school,’” Khan told EdSurge in an interview. In his 2013 book “The One World Schoolhouse,” Khan offered the world a small glimpse into some of what would eventually be the Lab School’s cornerstones: human interactivity, technology, creative projects.

Why the behaviour argument against mobile devices is flawed

Why the behaviour argument against mobile devices is flawed | Teaching with CALL | Scoop.it
The idea of prohibiting mobile devices in school may appear attractive, and a ban could be the right call in some circumstances. But suggesting that “all headteachers worth their salt” should ban mobile devices – as Sir Michael Wilshaw, head of England’s schools inspectorate Ofsted, did recently – does not really address the challenges and opportunities that the devices present to schools. Forcing students to enter an alternative reality every morning where the mobile internet doesn’t exist is probably not the answer.

The Simple Human Interactions That Make Learning Possible

The Simple Human Interactions That Make Learning Possible | Teaching with CALL | Scoop.it

Nothing will ever take the place of one person actually being with another person. Let’s not get so fascinated by what technology can do that we forget what it can’t do. A computer can help you learn to spell “H-U-G,” but it can never know the risks or the joy of actually giving or receiving one. It’s through relationships that we grow best–and learn best.

The report highlights the importance of bolstering students’ ability to navigate through digital texts. It also examines the relationship among computer access in schools, computer use in classrooms, and performance in the PISA assessment. As the report makes clear, all students first need to be equipped with basic literacy and numeracy skills so that they can participate fully in the hyper-connected, digitised societies of the 21st century.
