Move over Power Points, and static pages, enter VLogging and Youtube! The world has come a long way since the times of power point presentations, and why not when you can have the advantage of video! Videos make for better engagement of the audience, they appear to be more human, and yes there is less of print matter!

This incredible robot (called Root) is teaching kids to code - Daily Genius

This incredible robot (called Root) is teaching kids to code - Daily Genius | Tech4Ed | Scoop.it
Root looks like a smoke detector but is actually a sophisticated robot. A magnetic surface, wheels, and an impressive arsenal of sensors allow it to navigate a classroom white board. But Root isn’t actually programmed to do anything. Its tasks and functionality hinge on a child’s imagination. To operate – Root needs instructions, a line of code.

Zivthan Dubrovsky of Harvard’s Wyss Institute recalls testing out Root with kids for the first time. He asked them this: “Can you make a text based java script line follower? They go ‘no that’s hard, can’t do that’, but we can put level one in front of them and they can do it in minutes.”


Level one introduces kids to principles of programming using an interface of simple instruction and pictures. As they become more adept, they jump to levels 2 and 3, at which point writing computer code becomes second nature, according to Dubrovsky.

Teaching Them to See With Their Hearts – krissy venosdale

Teaching Them to See With Their Hearts – krissy venosdale | Tech4Ed | Scoop.it
I’ve been thinking about our youngest students and empathy.  Last week I spent a few days at a super awesome Stanford dSchool workshop on Design Thinking and my head is still kinda spinning… in a good way.   There’s a reason we have the word EMPATHIZE so huge on the wall in The Launch Pad.     It’s that critical first step where design becomes all about thinking and feeling for someone else.  Not feeling sorry for someone else, but actually putting yourself IN someone else’s shoes by hearing his or her story.  Brene Brown said it best, “Empathy is about connection. Sympathy is about separation.”

So how can we start the conversation and thinking with our primary and elementary learners?  I’ve been thinking of some ways to build their skills and have some fun along the way.

8 digital skills we must teach our children

8 digital skills we must teach our children | Tech4Ed | Scoop.it

The way children use technology is very different from adults. This gap makes it difficult for parents and educators to fully understand the risks and threats that children could face online. As a result, adults may feel unable to advise children on the safe and responsible use of digital technologies. Likewise, this gap gives rise to different perspectives of what is considered acceptable behaviour.

Blended Learning Toolkit: University of Central Florida and the American Association of State Colleges and Universities | Tech4Ed | Scoop.it
Abstract

The Blended Learning Toolkit supports the course redesign approach, and interest in its openly available clearinghouse of online tools, strategies, curricula, and other materials to support the adoption of blended learning continues to grow. When the resource originally launched in July 2011, 20 AASCU institutions used it, but now universities, colleges, and K–12 schools from around the world access the Blended Learning Toolkit.

This grantee profile from Next Generation Learning Challenges (NGLC) provides at-a-glance information, course model design details, grant project activities, results and outcomes, participant impressions, next steps, and additional resources.

NGLC accelerates educational innovation through applied technology to dramatically improve college readiness and completion in the United States. To learn more about NGLC and the grantees it supports, visit nextgenlearning.org
