Please teacher, more games!

Ryan McDonough's curator insight, July 7, 2014 8:19 AM

Self explanatory visual on the benefits of gaming as a means of learning. Outlined are the rewards, mastery, engagement, intensity, exercise, readiness, and competitiveness. These types of graphics need to be displayed in the classroom. There's always parents who are unsure of how gaming qualifies as teaching. Can't they just sit their kid in front of an iPad all day at home? Well, in the appropriate setting, with the right direction and guidance, games are certainly good for learning. Some people just don't know that from experience yet.

Stephanie Katcher's curator insight, July 26, 2013 6:15 PM

As our life becomes intertwined with our virtual existence we may neglect to realize what happens in sixty seconds is cumulatively astronomical, but intimately pointless. Participation in the information age is vital but the "endless" internet erases the participants ability to rely of clear boundaries and structure. It becomes more and more important that individuals understand their purpose, and their intentions so that they can leverage the digital world to their advantage not their demise.

"In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices.

The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same."

"Teachers and administrators will face the greatest burden. They will need to adjust on the fly, adapting teaching methods and the classroom environment to be ready for these young Tablettistes. Critical to success will be a shift in attitudes, a willingness to move away from a traditional control model toward something far more collaborative and shared with students."

Blended learning has much potential.  However, it is only PART of the solution to why ails education today.  It is not a replacement for funding.  Adequate funding, whether online of f2f, must go hand in hand.  You can't maximize the potential of education while cutting necessary $$$.

A useful video tutorial here, just over 16 minutes long. It runs through the basics of using Google drive and how you can use it to collaborate with others. It also touches on Google Hangout.

 

I use Google Drive with my students as a writing space because I teach English via Skype. It suits our needs perfectly. Students create several folders e.g. some are homework spaces; collaborative areas such as wikis; creative writing pages and as a virtual space that we can jump into during the lesson to work on activities. It works for us. As a teacher I can dip into shared spaces at any time and guide and support learning which is a real advantage.

flea palmer's curator insight, August 30, 2013 6:56 AM

This is a really thorough tutorial and very timely as I'm currently exploring using Google Drive with students. Our dispersed team of Learning Technologists already use it for collaboration but there is not much use as yet by our academics and students. The ability to be able to integrate Drive with Google Hangouts is really powerful and has the potential to be a great tool for supporting Distance Learning.

Elizabeth Sky-McIlvain's comment, August 13, 2013 8:13 AM
There are several unsettling things here - would like to see it done again with the national CCSS - now there's a project! What bothers me? Low Creativity in ELA (no wonder so many admins are mandating information reading and writing). What? No Collaboration in math? Take the ELA writing test on the Computer but don't set a standard for its use. And heaven forbid anyone should be asked to Communicate in the process of Learning. There is a concordance app somewhere - think I'll find it.
Crystal Cherise Conley's curator insight, August 13, 2013 2:33 PM

We were just having a discussion today about vocabulary and the verbs necessary to consider when planning for Common Core.  This clearly shows how different Common Core is from state standards.

A Wonderful Wheel featuring iPad Apps for Autistic Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | tech | Scoop.it

"I must admit that apps for autistic learners are really scarce and hard to find. A few months ago I posted here a list some powerful apps for autism and today while I was looking for new apps that might have been created since the publication of that list I came across this wonderful wheel.

I know that the first thing that comes to mind when you see this wheel is the popular pedagogy Wheel created by Allan Carrington in which he provided suggestions for 62 apps based on Bloom's Taxonomy. The present wheel is developed by Mark Coppin in which he featured a wide variety of apps for autistic students."
