Tried and tested, and proving incredibly successful, these simple ways of integrating iPads into a lesson helps to keep pupils focused, organised, and engaged with their learning. These tips could be used in any lesson with any year group, but I will share examples of contemporary best practice from my role as Upper Key Stage 2 teacher and ICT Coordinator. A teacher does not even need a whole class set of iPads to be able to replicate these methods; one, six, or eight devices will also work well.

BarnettTechCamps | A Year with 3D Printing in the Classroom | TechMarm | Scoop.it

"I have a couple of more 3D printing projects that I haven’t written about this year, but by the time this posts it will be the last day of school, and I feel like this would be the right time to reflect on what a year of 3D printing in the classroom was like.

 

I started the year with a lot of ideas and excitement, but I wasn’t really sure how the year would pan out. Looking back now I couldn’t be happier. The level of learning that occurred this year was more than I expected. As excited as I was at the prospect of using a 3D printer in the classroom, I was nervous that I wouldn’t be able to figure out how to tie it to the curriculum. I wondered if my students would be able to understand how it works and be able to use it effectively. I was concerned that I wouldn’t have time for projects with all the other demands that happen in a classroom. My concerns were overshadowed by the novelty and the excitement of the printer. I think that is what many of my students felt too. They were curious, excited, and bewildered."

5½ Timeless Commencement Speeches to Teach You to Define Your Own Success ~ Brain Pickings

5½ Timeless Commencement Speeches to Teach You to Define Your Own Success ~ Brain Pickings | TechMarm | Scoop.it

by Maria Popova

 

"It’s that time of year again, the time when cultural icons and luminaries of various stripes flock to podiums around the world to impart their wisdom on a fresh crop of graduating seniors hungry to take on the world. After last year’s omnibus of timeless commencement addresses by J. K. Rowling(“Climbing out of poverty by your own efforts, that is something on which to pride yourself. But poverty itself is romanticized only by fools.”), Steve Jobs (“You can’t connect the dots looking forward; you can only connect them looking backwards.”), Robert Krulwich (“You will build a body of work, but you will also build a body of affection, with the people you’ve helped who’ve helped you back. This is the era of Friends in Low Places.”), Meryl Streep (“This is your time, and it feels normal to you. But, really, there is no ‘normal.’ There’s only change, and resistance to it, and then more change.”), and Jeff Bezos (“Cleverness is a gift, kindness is a choice.”), here are five-ish more packets of timeless wisdom.

Across them runs a common thread of what seems to be as much a critical message,the message, for the young as it is an essential lifelong reminder for all: No social convention of success should lure you away from or could be a substitute for finding your purpose and doing what you love.

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom

 

 

Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences).

The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency. It’s curious they haven’t really “caught on” in schools considering how well they bridge both the old-form textbook habit of cramming tons of information into a small space, while also neatly overlapping with the dynamic and digital world.

This book is a multimedia anthology of poetry created by sixth grade students, illustrated with a variety of apps, and compiled using the Book Creator app.

The poetry was written in Mrs. Hockenbrocht's Language Arts class.  Students were asked to illustrate their poetry using images, text, and audio.  They were to use and cite copyright friendly images and needed to include at least one video.
They needed to use a variety of apps to create the media for this project. When done with their chapter, I uploaded each book from Book Creator to Dropbox. I then downloaded each book onto one device and used the merge feature in Book Creator to combine each chapter into one anthology."

Allan Carrington has done some outstanding work with his (currrently) 3 iterations of the Padagogy Wheet. It is definitely worth it to go to his blog and explore the development of the framwork from its origins. 

 

It is important, too, to acknowledge the work of Andrew Churches and Kathy Schrock, and quite a few others, in elaborating this conceptual scheme.

 

We should also pause and remember that Bllom's taxonomy has 3 domains, not just the single Cognitive domain. The  Affective and Psychomotor are equally as imporant. If we focus on content only, to the exclusion of social, emotional, nutritiional, and fitness expectations, we miseducate our students, shortchanging their development in significant ways.

Researchers found similar effects on student learning and teacher behavior regardless of whether teachers took part in online or face-to-face professional development.

 

Fishman said that administrators and policymakers should see the findings as further evidence that online teacher professional development, while no silver bullet, can be a viable alternative to the traditional model.

 

"There's some hesitation on the part of teachers who think that online [professional development] is somehow less valuable to them because of a lack of personal connection," Fishman said.

 

"I think this study may make them a little more optimistic."

A Must See Chart on SAMR Model and iPad Teaching ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Must See Chart on SAMR Model and iPad Teaching ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | TechMarm | Scoop.it

"Technology integration in instruction is a process that starts with setting out clearly defined objectives and ends with assessing learning outcomes against these objectives, and all along the way several tools and strategies are employed to attend to the overall performance of this process. Hence, the first question teachers need to ponder when thinking about using technology in class is not what kind of technology to use but what do they want to achieve behind using this technology? On a deeper level, they need to find answers to questions such as: Does this technology constitute a a good addition to the learning task ?  Can the same learning task be performed without using technology? These and several other questions  should come to the forefront when you start planning a technology-based learning activity.

GoogleLitTrips Reading List's curator insight, September 14, 2013 1:18 PM

 

And now for something completely serious.

 

I've scooped and / or referenced the Chimamanda Ngozi Adichie TED talk, Danger of a Single Story frequently.


In this article a college professor explores the negative reaction to this talk by one of her students.

 

What is truly interesting is that she provides the student's articulation of the offense he or she took at Adichie's premise. The student built a case that the talk's subtext was "anti-white." And then she provides her response.

 

Both are well-written in the sense that the vocabulary, sentence structure, and sharp focus upon their essential thesis statements are solid. Each relies upon building a case with extensive evidence. 

 

And yet, after watching the speech and reading both the student's argument and the professor's rebuttal, I can not find a way to "agree to disagree." I would give the student credit for having made a sincere  though flawed effort and for taking the risk to do so. But, I can not accept the student's core thesis. Beneath the quality wordsmanship, the argument does not float. Once the argument is made, there's no doubt that the student relies heavily upon his or her own preconceived notions that any critique made against his or her beliefs is a critique of all Caucasians. And once that false default  assumption becomes the basis of criticism, it is apparently considered to be a viable argument that since there are philanthropic examples of Caucasian behavior that "all Caucasians" are being unfairly criticized.  The argument that "some people" are imperfect and might do well to do some introspection lost on the student. 

 

Had the student first conceded that there was no criticism directed at "all white people," and recognized that the argument was directed at ANYONE who only knows a single story about another group beside their own, there might have been a recognition that we are all imperfect in spite of the many good things we or others in our "group" may have done. That the good that others have done has no bearing upon whether we as individuals, individuals of any color, culture, gender, sexual preference, political, religious, or traditional practice might have some introspection to do when it comes to understanding others.

 

And on the ocassions, rare or otherwise, when we can't or won't look past our own default assumptions that we might need to revisit our opinions and understandings, too many of us are liable to fall victim to those of us who would control the stories we do hear. And it is then that we find ourselves acting on the assumptions that we could not be wrong about our beliefs ...

 • that all Muslims are terrorist who believe that Islam teaching are violent

 • that all media and money is controlled by Jews

 • that all liberals are un-American

or

 • that all conservatives are greedy

 

I'll let you fill in the rest...

 • that all women are ________

 • that all men are ________

 • that all priests are _________

 • that all non-procreative intimacy is __________

 • that all television is ____________

 • that all politicians are ____________

 • that all beliefs other than my own are _________

 • that all __________ are _________

 

Does one story prove that paper-based reading is vastly superior to digital reading? Or the reverse?

 

 

Multiculturalism and Global Awareness appear in BIG letters in Wordles made from works of 21st century educational reform. 

 

In large part the Google Lit Trips project embraces the value of journeying beyond one's small corner of the world. As Atticus Finch went away to college Aunt Alexandra never left the landing; while Huck Finn left St. Petersburg and learned while Tom Sawyer stayed in St. Petersburg, leading Huck to realize that he had learned too much to go back to St. Peterburg with Tom who had learned virtually nothing about the cruelty of his society's default prejudices; and while readers read stories that allow them to virtually travel to towns, cultures, and countries far beyond their own, they're understanding broadens.

 

Xenophobia is challenged, egocentricism is perceived and in recognizing as an embarrassment that we "should have felt" before we discovered that all those Polish, blonde, Jew, Muslim, and gay jokes were much more hurtful than hilarious and that perhaps our individual points of view are neither at the center of the universe nor sufficiently well-informed to be considered incontrovertible trump cards in the game of life.

Andrea Deydén's curator insight, September 20, 2013 3:10 PM

La literatura amplía el panorama al momento de entender fenómenos sociales, mecanismos de poder, posturas sobre determinadas temáticas y ayuda a "ponerse en los zapatos" de otros en una manera muy lúdica.  

El problema que se ve en este texto es que, en casos, los mecanismos ideológicos se encuentran tan arraigados que falta aparato crítico. Cualquiera que se tome palabras generales de un autor u obra como agresión personal es, en el mejor de los casos, paranoico o egomaniaco. 

Por otro lado, la palabra "multicultural" me saca de quicio. La literatura, sea de donde sea, forma parte de un corpus universal. Obviamente refleja valores de cierta cultura, pero permea hacia las demás de forma natural. Añadirle el apellido "multicultural", por muy inclusivo que suene al inicio, simplemente refuerza una idea de otredad (ahora conjunta, eso sí). Una producción literaria transmite por sí misma un mensaje y se vuelve parte de un corpus universal. Literatura. Punto.
