The Future of Education: BYOD in the Classroom | Innovation Insights | Wired.com

The Future of Education: BYOD in the Classroom | Innovation Insights | Wired.com | TechinEd | Scoop.it

"As children across the nation return to school, many are going armed with their own computational tools. From laptops to tablets and smartphones, schools and universities across the globe are testing out a more dynamic learning environment, where students bring and use their choice of technologically assistive devices in the classroom. Despite the obvious benefits, the influx of mobile technology in educational systems has also provoked backlash from parents and teachers alike, similar to the BYOD backlash witnessed within enterprise IT departments in the past few years.

 

Educational institutions are ultimately presented two options: adopt a BYOD program, embracing the technology trend, encouraging student participation, and expanding curriculum to include BYOD-driven topics, or to impose of a BYOD policy, setting rules to govern the presence and practice of these potentially disruptive devices."

Interesting that some Silicon Valley inventors of Apple I-pad  choose to send their children to Waldorf Schools that do not embrace computers. Why? The outcomes of hours spent in front of computer screens for developing brains has not been identified clearly in terms of long term effects. I believe that a good teacher who empowers her students to learn can do so without technology, I am speaking here of elementary schools where most students are gaining literacy that can be applied in any medium a little later. Let's restrict their use in kindergartens and primary schools to be on the safe side.

Good Free App of the Day: Phonics Studio - Smart Apps For Kids

Good Free App of the Day: Phonics Studio - Smart Apps For Kids | TechinEd | Scoop.it

"I was looking at free app notifications - nothing was getting me excited and I thought, why do I keep saving Phonics Studio? I need to share this app! We've done GFAOTD features on a number of offerings from Grasshopper Apps because they're high quality, free and customizable. This one is certainly no exception.

 

If you have a child who is learning phonics, how sounds blend or needs articulation practice, this is a must-download. All speech therapists and teachers should definitely have Phonics Studio in their app arsenal.

 

It comes with over 2,500 gorgeous, high-quality flashcards. It's totally customizable and supports multiple users. It tracks data. You can use the sounds that come with the app or record your own. Your child can record their own for practice. The app even does your ironing.

 

*That last statement isn't actually true."

Technology Acceptance and Performance in Online Learning Environments

Technology Acceptance and Performance in Online Learning Environments | TechinEd | Scoop.it

The model explains the antecedents to perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness of online learning systems by learner self-regulatory processes and behaviors, personality differences, and extrinsic factors such as technical support, technology training, and equipment accessibility. Personality variables that are proposed to affect self-regulation and learners' perceived ease of use and perceived usefulness are conscientiousness, openness to experience, general self-efficacy, and risk propensity.

Educational Origami - Traditional vs Digital Approaches – iPad Guide

Educational Origami - Traditional vs Digital Approaches – iPad Guide | TechinEd | Scoop.it

"I am currently working on a set of workshops where I am using the Literacy – Augmentative-transformative model of technology use http://edorigami.wikispaces.com/Tech_audit_tool ; to frame up use of iPads in a classroom.

 

I am currently looking at Augmentative or integrating technologies. Augmentative or integrative use of technology is often described as “Teaching with technology”. In this use of technology the student replaces traditional approaches with an equivalent digital version. A simple test to apply to see if the use of technology is Augmenting or transforming learning."

Teaching and Learning with Minecraft: Liam O’Donnell | DMLcentral | TechinEd | Scoop.it

Just as blocks have no inherent curricular power other than experience in making big things by stacking smaller things in the right order, the ability of computer-controlled pixels to convey important knowledge depends entirely on what (and how) they are used. That’s where teachers come in…and why some are beginning to use an inexpensive online game to teach everything from philosophy to biology: Minecraft.

Giving Students Feedback With Kaizena (Voice Comments) Tutorial

Published on Sep 10, 2013

Use your voice to give students feedback about their papers in Google Docs. I've only played with this a little bit so far, but I'm really excited to be able to use Kaizena to give my students feedback this year. Being able to add links to resources and reuse those links for other students is so helpful. If you have questions I'm on twitter @JenRoberts1 and the guys who make kaizena are @kaizenaFB if you have feedback for them, or email founders@kaizena.com

Why Teaching Helps Students Learn More Deeply

Why Teaching Helps Students Learn More Deeply | TechinEd | Scoop.it

Students enlisted to tutor others, these researchers have found, work harder to understand the material, recall it more accurately and apply it more effectively. In a phenomenon that scientists have dubbed “the protégé effect,” student teachers score higher on tests than pupils who are learning only for their own sake.

26 Teacher Tools To Create Online Assessments

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.

How I turned my classroom into a ‘living video game’—and saw achievement soar

How I turned my classroom into a ‘living video game’—and saw achievement soar | TechinEd | Scoop.it

The notion that struggling and failing is important to learning runs counter to traditional approaches to U.S. education. In fact, failure and its accompanying “F” grade stigmatizes a student as unprepared or “challenged” and is usually seen as a predictor of failure in future grades.

 

In the world of gaming, however, the very elements of struggle, challenge, and failure that discourage kids in the classroom become the primary drivers of engagement and achievement.
