What Schools Can Learn From Google, IDEO, and Pixar

What Schools Can Learn From Google, IDEO, and Pixar | Technology Bits and Bytes | Scoop.it

"In many ways, what makes the Googles of the world exceptional begins in the childhood classroom-- an embrace of creativity, play, and collaboration. It was just one year ago that 1,500 CEOs identified creativity as the number-one leadership competency in our complex global marketplace. We can no longer afford to teach our kids or design their schoolhouses the way we used to if we’re to maintain a competitive edge. In looking at various exemplary workplaces such as IDEO, Google, and Pixar, we can glean valuable lessons about effective educational approaches and the spaces that support them, principles like transparency, spontaneity, and playfulness." | via Fast Company Design

Part 4… Creativity In The Digital Classroom… Amazing Web Sites... Are They In Your School? | Technology Bits and Bytes | Scoop.it

“So many times we encourage students to be creative, but we don’t always provide an explanation nor assessment. I think it is important to provide a definition. You can see that Dictionary.com defines creativity as ‘the ability to transcend traditional ideas, rules, patterns, relationships, or the like, and to create meaningful new ideas, forms, methods, interpretations, etc.; originality, progressiveness, or imagination: the need for creativity in modern industry; creativity in the performing arts’.”

It has gone from game to phenomenon, selling bajillions of copies and crowding the mindscape of 6th graders everywhere for what seems like centuries. But before you go, there may be some lessons you can takeaway for your classroom–lessons that can help promote the creativity in students you’ve been looking for."

"AirPlay Mirroring is a great attribute of iOS on the iPad. It lets you mirror your iPad display, and every little thing that you do on it, to an Apple TV or a Mac computer system. This is extremely beneficial when doing presentations and demos, producing screencasts or videos, or just enjoying your iPad photos or videos or games on a larger screen.

And it’s unbelievably easy to utilize as long as you’ve the right setup. Right here’s a quick rundown of exactly what’s needed and the best ways to utilize AirPlay Mirroring on the iPad: "

A More Flexible iPad Classroom Through Apple TV - TeachThought

A More Flexible iPad Classroom Through Apple TV - TeachThought | Technology Bits and Bytes | Scoop.it

"

Technology has provided teachers with more tools than ever before to support a rich and personalized learning experience. 1:1 initiatives are commonplace and strategies are surfacing that clearly show how mobile devices can support instruction and learning. At the Franklin Academy High School, in Wake Forest, North Carolina, teachers and students have access to Apple TV devices to enhance the iPad initiative started over three years ago.

 

The basic operation of the Apple TV involves connecting the device to the existing organization network. With the AirPlay feature found on iPads and Apple computers, one connects in wirelessly to the Apple TV. This technology allows not only the streaming image of the iPad or airplay enabled computer, but also carries the audio signal as well. This makes for a quick way to share media that provides both the video and sound in one signal to the television or projection device."

A Board Game That Teaches Four-Year-Olds How To Code | Andrew Liszewski | Gizmodo.com | Technology Bits and Bytes | Scoop.it

When was the last time a champion speller rolled up to a Bee in a Ferrari? Never. If you really want to guarantee your kids make something of themselves one day, you'll want to forget board games like Scrabble and focus on building real-world skills. Not only does Robot Turtles teach a love of Herpetology (the study of reptiles) it also teaches them the basics of computer programming—aka coding.

 

The game, created by a Seattle software entrepreneur named Dan Shapiro, actually started life as a successful Kickstarter project, but is now finally available to anyone with $25 to spare and a desire to see their kids succeed. The goal of the game is for kids to maneuver their turtle across the board, avoiding obstacles and other players, in order to rendezvous with a jewel. But instead of rolling a dice and letting fate decide, they use a set of cards that serve as basic programming instructions, telling the turtle where to move and when to turn.

Creativity In The Digital Classroom-Over 40 Resources-Are They in Your School?

Creativity In The Digital Classroom-Over 40 Resources-Are They in Your School? | Technology Bits and Bytes | Scoop.it

"I believe that creativity is necessary in today’s classroom. In fact, creativity is one of the important 4 C’s (Critical Thinking, Collaboration, Communication, Creativity) that make up part of the foundation of a 21st century education. The remaining foundation is of course another C (Significant Content). I believe that when you put all of these C’s together you get two more C’s which make up the 'Common Core'."

This post is the first in series and discusses free resources that may be stored on a local computer or a network. The list includes Scratch, Sketc-Up, Gimp, 3 free office suites, Alice, a variety of tools that will help you make movies and more. Most are described in some  detail and there are links to additional resources to help you learn the tool.

Additional posts will discuss Web 2.0 apps that may be used on the Internet (and across platforms), web apps and sites that promote literacy and student publication and web sites that promote student creativity.

Insights from an iPad Newbie | New Mistakes | Technology Bits and Bytes | Scoop.it

"We are piloting iPads in our elementary campus this year, in groups of 5 per classroom. We offered the chance for our e-Learning leaders to apply for the opportunity, and almost all of them jumped at the chance. It has been an exciting and steep learning curve for us so far. Since I had never used them in the classroom myself, it has been a year of networking, learning, researching, reflecting and collaborating. It has been incredible watching the iPads literally transform the learning environment in the classroom. In addition, we also have a hub of 20 iPads in the library that can be signed out as a class set. In no particular order, here are some insights and reflections from our pilot:"
