9 Creative Storytelling Tools That Will Make You Wish You Were A Student Again | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

T.H.E. Journal asked educators for the most creative storytelling apps available, and we did a little digging on our own, too.

Lessons to Be Learned From Paulo Freire as Education Is Being Taken Over by the Mega Rich

Lessons to Be Learned From Paulo Freire as Education Is Being Taken Over by the Mega Rich | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it
Critical pedagogy, for Freire, meant imagining literacy as not simply the mastering of specific skills, but also as a mode of intervention, a way of learning about and reading the word as a basis for intervening in the world. Critical thinking was not reducible to an object lesson in test taking. It was not about the task of memorizing so-called facts, decontextualized and unrelated to present conditions. To the contrary, it was about offering a way of thinking beyond the seeming naturalness or inevitability of the current state of things, challenging assumptions validated by "common sense," soaring beyond the immediate confines of one's experiences, entering into a dialogue with history and imagining a future that would not merely reproduce the present.

10 Apps for Math Fluency - Edutopia

10 Apps for Math Fluency - Edutopia | Technology and Education Resources | Scoop.it

"In order for students to tackle the multi-step word problems they'll be asked to solve as early as elementary school, they need to have mastered their addition, subtraction and multiplication facts. By answering 4 + 12, 15 - 5, 9 x 7 and 18 / 3 quickly and accurately, students can focus on reading word problems to figure out what the question is asking them to do. There are tons of fun apps that help children build their math fluency through games and flashcards. Check out some of these fantastic math apps."
