Why Integrate Technology into the Curriculum?: The Reasons Are Many

Why Integrate Technology into the Curriculum?: The Reasons Are Many | Technology and science in the classroom. | Scoop.it
Technology is ubiquitous, touching almost every part of our lives, our communities, our homes. Yet most schools lag far behind when it comes to integrating technology into classroom learning.
Pedeta Deutscher's insight:

This article discusses how the intergration of technology will enhance the learning process of students, as it  supports four key components of learning which are active engagement, participation in groups, frequent interaction and feedback, and connection to real-world experts.

It reminds teachers of the importance of incorperating cross curricular activities and ICT within their pedagogy.

High_Flying_Balloons.pdf

Pedeta Deutscher's insight:

High Flying Balloons is an American 2nd Grade Science design brief used to investhe three stages of matter - solids, liquids and gases.

Students have to build a model of a hot air balloon and see how high it will fly.

High flying balloon pdf includes worksheets that require the students to:

1: What is the problem.

2: Brainstorm solutions.

3: Creating a solution.

4: testing solutions.

5: evaluating solutions.

6: Photograph and sketching balloon models.

7: Graph of balloon flight.

8: KWL chart.

9: Rubric for marking.

This is a very detailed design brief that can be implemented within the Australian classroom using adaptions from the Australian Science Curriculum.

The future of education eliminates the classroom, because the world is your class

The future of education eliminates the classroom, because the world is your class | Technology and science in the classroom. | Scoop.it

Technology can turn our entire lives into learning experiences via “socialstructed learning,” an aggregation of microlearning experiences drawn from a rich ecology of content and driven not by grades but by social and intrinsic rewards, suggests Marina Gorbis, Executive Director at the Institute for the Future.

 

“Today’s obsession with MOOCs is a reminder of the old forecasting paradigm: In the early stages of technology introduction we try to fit new technologies into existing social structures in ways that have become familiar to us,” she says.

 

What if we could access historical, artistic, demographic, environmental, architectural, and other kinds of information embedded in the real world via augmented reality devices?

 

“This is exactly what a project from USC and UCLA called HyperCities is doing: layering historical information on the actual city terrain. As you walk around with your cell phone, you can point to a site and see what it looked like a century ago, who lived there, what the environment was like.

 

“The Smithsonian’s free iPhone and iPad app, Leafsnap, responds when you take a photo of a tree leaf by instantly searching a growing library of leaf images amassed by the Smithsonian Institution.

 

“We are moving away from the model in which learning is organized around stable, usually hierarchical institutions (schools, colleges, universities) . … Replacing that model is a new system in which learning is best conceived of as a flow, where learning resources are not scarce but widely available, opportunities for learning are abundant, and learners increasingly have the ability to autonomously dip into and out of continuous learning flows.”

8 Reasons Why you should Create A Blog for your Class

8 Reasons Why you should Create A Blog for your Class | Technology and science in the classroom. | Scoop.it

 

Why would I start educational blogging with my students ? what is its benefits on their overall learning ? These are two legitimate questions you need to ponder on before embarking on a blogging journey with your class. In fact asking critical questions should not only be limited to your tech practices with your students but should cover all your teaching practice. Through questions we discover our weak points to work on and through inquiry we unearth new inspiring fountains of knowledge.

To answer the two questions posed above, I am sharing with you what Morris ( grade four teacher ) has learned from using educational blogging with her students. Morris was like everyone of us, hesitant and not sure how to start blogging with her class but now that she spent several years blogging she discovered that blogging brings several educational benefits and here are some of them : read more in the article...

Light your way is an American 4th Grade Science design brief which invites student's to design and build a lantern which can be switched on and off to conserve energy.

Students are also required to prepare and label a sketch explaining how the lanten works there is also areas for standards for learning, brainstorming solutions, checklists and a rubric for marking.

This design brief is very detailed and could be implmented within an Australian classroom with some adaptions from the Australian Science Curriculum.

Pedeta Deutscher's insight:

This is a artical from the journal of technology education which looks at the connection between science, maths and technology subjects using a multidisiplinary approach within the class room.

Students will continue to use experimentation to gain insites and information about a possible hypotheses but by using the intergration of science and design technology results will improve the way that data is collected.

Kia Sowden's curator insight, May 1, 2013 5:09 AM

This article investigates a Pedagogical Framework for successfully developing an integrated Science and Technolgy unit. Within the article it acknowledges that many teachers utilise a Pegagogical Framework that lends itself to either Science or Technology. However, Zubrowski argues that there are three essential phases that should be used as the foundation of an integrated unit. These include Open Exploration, whereby students are free to design on their own, the Standard Model, whereby systematic testing of variables occurs, and the Return to the Design Process, whereby students use their new knowledge to re-evaluate their designs. This pedagogical framework would prove useful for any teacher looking to develop a blanced integrated Science and Technology unit.

These clips from The Simpsons cartoons are intended for use by science teachers. It is recommended that you download and archive each clip that you would like to use. The clips are in MPEG (.m4v) format and should play on iTunes, Quicktime Player, and many other free video players like VLC. They are a great way to liven up a slide presentation and should import into PowerPoint and Keynote. The posting and use of theses clips for educational purposes conforms with fair use of the copyright act. This website is a work in progress. If you have ideas for Science on the Simpsons clips, please email me a short description, the title of the episode, and the season number if possible.
