Educational Technology: Highly Used Apps in High Schools

Educational Technology: Highly Used Apps in High Schools | Teaching with tecnología | Scoop.it

"Ask a group of high school teachers what they want from technology in the classroom, and you’re likely to hear variations on three answers: They want tools that help students write well, do research based on solid references, and improve time-management skills. When students enter high school, educational technology is no longer mainly for drilling or practice or simply keeping students engaged. Now tech provides the day-planner, the reference library, and the easily carried note-taking method that can help high school students succeed."

Disadvantages Of Teaching With PowerPoint

Disadvantages Of Teaching With PowerPoint | Teaching with tecnología | Scoop.it

Because of the usefulness and versatility, PowerPoint has gained popularity and become a top brand of various presentation programs for institutions, individuals and organizations.

It is indeed useful in making a presentation a successful one. In fact, this amazing presentation tool has a lot of advantages but like any other institutional tool, this software has some disadvantages that teachers and students must know and understand before making any investment of resources and money.

I agree the article raises some valid points and those are true no matter what software (or even manual flip charts etc) you use. There is more to giving an effective presentation than starting up PowerPoint (or any software) and it is really up to the presenter to ensure he/she captures the audience....

I like some of these ideas. I'm thinking we could have students make podcast booktalks and have QR codes linking to them in the books or on a display or around the school. Hmm...kids can't use their phones at school, yet. Well, I can always put links to them in our catalog and on the website.

Connie Wise's curator insight, July 22, 2013 9:04 PM

Use podcasting to meet Common Core standards of speaking & writing.

Learning to learn: asking questions and taking names

Learning to learn: asking questions and taking names | Teaching with tecnología | Scoop.it

By Ally Greer:


There are such things as stupid questions.


Just kidding, there aren’t. (Got your attention, though, right?)

 

I don’t care how many times we were told this growing up – I always find myself thinking, “Don’t ask that, that’s dumb. You should know that.” Well, guess what? Like I talked about in my last post, so many people of today’s world are in a perpetual state of learning. There is always something that seems obvious to one person that another person might not have ever thought about. The whole reason that conversing with others can be so amazing is because everyone has something to teach and everyone has something to learn. Why we view this as being stupid and not as an opportunity to extract new information is beyond me.


Don’t be afraid to keep asking.

Asking and answering questions quickly becomes the foundation for lifelong learning. Ally's insights reveal a young mind that's already addicted to learning (foreever).  A great read. 

Mindy M Walker's curator insight, June 20, 2013 12:46 PM

Worth going through this post. If you don't know - learn - how to ask questions, you won't keep learning. Agreed - there are no stupid questions.
