What's the best way to take notes on your laptop or tablet?

What's the best way to take notes on your laptop or tablet? | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
Understanding attention span and working memory capacity is important to learn how to take electronic notes more effectively.
Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:

We take for granted that students know how to use laptops effectively but we need to teach them explicitly how to do so. Note taking is one example of a task that can be effectively taught using technology.

What is digital fluency?

What is digital fluency? | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
“Crucially, the outcome of being digitally fluent relates to issues of responsibility, equity and access. We all have the right to fully participate in a digitally-enabled education system and in an increasingly digitised society. If we work with fluency in the way we use technologies, we are able to keep ourselves safe online and take full advantage of life chance opportunities such as being able to apply for work, manage our finances, or be part of our local community”
Via Nik Peachey, Karen Bonanno, GwynethJones
Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:
Teaching students to create their own learning is every bit as important as teaching subject knowledge, arguably, more so.

En pleno Siglo XXI las competencias digitales se han convertido en un requisito indispensable para la sociedad, tanto en el trabajo como en el día a día de las personas. Por ello se pide el reconocimiento de las competencias digitales como habilidades básicas esenciales.

Tony Zameczkowski:  "Content creators, whether traditional media or YouTubers, are moving from a passive consumption model focused on the TV or desktop, to one where their fans are empowered to engage with them and with each other especially on mobile platforms. We’re shifting from a world of viewers to mobile communities of fans."

When Schools Overlook Introverts: Why Quiet Time is Important for the Learning Process - The Atlantic | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
As the focus on group work and collaboration increases, classrooms are neglecting the needs of students who work better in quiet settings.
Louise Robinson-Lay's insight:
I recently had a conversation with a colleague about introverts and how they learn. This article struck a chord. I do not believe you have to be an extrovert to be successful and schools need to truly differentiate for all learning styles.

Coding with Paper: Printable Space Race Game for Students - Fractus Learning

Coding with Paper: Printable Space Race Game for Students - Fractus Learning | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
There are thousands of different ways to introduce programming to your class in fun and interactive ways for the upcoming Hour of Code (December 8-14). While most apps and tutorials do require internet connected computers or mobile devices, it does not mean that schools without this level of technology cannot get involved. In fact, coding with paper can be an even more engaging and meaningful way to introduce students to early programming concepts.

Coding is a skill of logic, maths and language every bit as much as computers and technology. The low-tech options here suit most schools.

Infographics are such a fun and effective visual way to display information. We at Buffer have certainly used them quite a few times to share information.

There are so many tools being released every day allowing us to easily create better and better images— including infographics—to share and use in our marketing efforts.

These Downloadable Kits Let Teachers 3-D-Print Educational Models For Kids - FastCo.Exist #makered | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
“ If you’re old enough, you’ll remember how your schoolteacher used to deal out those weird-smelling, purple-inked Ditto machine prints. Failing that, you’re sure to recall photocopies. Now that same duplication can be brought to plastic objects. Any school that owns or has access to a 3-D printer can now make three-dimensional models, or "manipulatives)," of the 2-D illustrations in books. Not only that, but they can download and print all manner of neat educational objects, from catapults to distance-measuring wheels to mathematical models. The 3-D printer needs to be supplied, but the models come from MyStemKits, a new company that specializes in models for schools.”
