David Donat's curator insight, July 24, 2013 3:26 PM

Una bona presentació de la "Flipped Classroom": no és un mètode pedagògic, sinó una manera més d'enfocar l'aprenentatge, que pot anar bé en algunes ocasions i que en d'altres no tant. Es pot plantejar com un recurs més, combinable amb qualsevol altre.

La meva opinió és que els alumnes són tan diversos que no hi ha cap metodologia "ideal". Cadascun necessitarà eines i processos diferents i per tant, quantes més dinàmiques i metodologies s'utilitzin (i més flexibles siguin) millor s'atendrà a cadascun d'ells. No cal dir que amb ratios de més de 30 adolescents per aula tampoc es poden fer miracles.

Teaching Creativity - Professional Development for Teachers

Teaching Creativity - Professional Development for Teachers | Tech and Ed | Scoop.it

In modeling our own creative process we powerfully model for our students the rewards of approaching their lives with joyful wonder, the resilience to fail, the agency to seek their own solutions. The increased creativity in faculty and in students becomes the measure of successful professional development within our schools.

How To Keep Copyright On eLearning Content You Create

How To Keep Copyright On eLearning Content You Create | Tech and Ed | Scoop.it
Several eLearning professionals wonder "what happens with the eLearning content they create for a company"? Do eLearning developers have the right to maintain copyrights and reuse their eLearning work or their employer is its sole owner?

As a long time freelance writer I always hang on to my copyright.  I recall turning down work for hire jobs because I knew the payoff was in the long haul, not the immediate paycheck.  Hang on to your copyright or negotiate for shared copyright.  If push comes to shove, be ready to walk if you get a low ball offer with no rights attached.

Interview with Tom Ashbrook

 

How education is jeopardizing creativity:

 

"I’m not blaming teachers for it. I’m not blaming school principals for it. I’ve worked in education my whole life and I work a lot with teachers in schools and I know they’re as concerned about this as I am and everbody else is. I think it’s to do with this culture of standardization. There is a view that the way we improve education is to make it more and more standardized. Many people in schools — particularly in this country, I’d say — are laboring under this sort of dead culture of continuous testing. And one of the results of it has been to reduce the curriculum, to narrow it. So a lot of the things that people, who may be be in their 40s or 50s, will remember from school — things like band and orchestra, putting on plays, lots of interesting after school activities — a lot of those things are being pushed out by this culture of standardized testing. It’s all done with an honorable purpose, I think — the intention is to raise standards, but the irony is it’s really not doing it. And more and more kids are pulling out of school. There’s more and more teachers, I feel, demoralized by it. And I know parents are very concerned about it too."

Pamela D Lloyd's curator insight, June 25, 2013 3:21 PM

The primary focus of education should be helping children to reach their full potential. That can't be done through standardization, because kids don't come in standard packages; it can only happen when we recognize that we need to meet each child's needs.

 

Standards have their place, but only with respect to the quality of what we offer to children and in ensuring that every child is offered the best possible education. Standards that restrict children's opportunities and growth need to be eliminated and replaced with an approach that enriches the educational environment for everyone.

26 Teacher Tools To Create Online Assessments

26 Teacher Tools To Create Online Assessments | Tech and Ed | Scoop.it

You teach, which means you need to know what students do and don’t understand.

Which means you need to assess.

You teach in the 21st century, which means you use the internet and digital tools to plan, share, and curate learning.

Which means online assessments could be a boon to your teaching, whether for blended learning, a flipped classroom, eLearning, to better communicate learning progress to parents, or for students to track their own mastery.

I will definitely have some feedback after reviewing these tools to create online assessments. Creating assessments is an important first step because you don't give the prescription on how to fix a business before you've figured out what the problem are-that's why you begin with the assessments- they become your base starting point of reference. This article has tools to help you create those online assessments.Let me know which are your favorite tools.

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.

10 Ways To Use Technology To Teach Writing

10 Ways To Use Technology To Teach Writing | Tech and Ed | Scoop.it

Both high-tech innovations for learning and the inability of many schoolchildren to write well have been major talking points in educational circles for quite some time, but oddly enough, one may offer a solution to helping remedy the other.

 

There are a variety of tech tools and methods out there for teaching writing that can make the process easier and more fun for both teachers and students. While not every high-tech way of teaching writing will work for every class or every student, there’s enough variety that there’s bound to be something for everyone.

 

Here are a few tech-focused ways to help students learn grammar, essay-writing, and, most importantly, why good writing is so important to their futures.
