I love this. It explains beautifully why content curation is so important. Are you adding value to things you share? I need to at a closer look at what I am crating.

Guide to Creating Tech-Friendly Classroom Management Strategies | Edudemic

Guide to Creating Tech-Friendly Classroom Management Strategies | Edudemic | Technology Education | Scoop.it
If you’re a teacher who grew up in the pre-Internet era, you understand how tech innovation has revamped the educational landscape. Gone are the days of the blackboard and mimeograph. Teachers today carry a heavier (and more complicated) toolbox than ever before. The question is, how efficiently are you using your tools? Inviting Students to

Beth Dichter's curator insight, October 11, 2014 9:03 PM

Bringing technology into your classroom can create major shifts, and planning ahead is a good idea. This post shares a guide that has 4 strategies to assist you. The examples provides are for a first grade classroom, but they will provide a foundation for many grade levels.

Strategy 1: Do your homework. This focuses on three areas - lesson planning, legwork and troubleshooting.

Strategy 2: Identify learning goals. This section provides two samples and discusses the value of learning goals.

Strategy 3: Step away from the computer. Keep an eye on your class. You may need to move from 'tech time' to other modes of learning more quickly than planned.

Strategy 4: Capitalize on their desire to explore. Prepare lessons and realize that the students work may lead to questions that provide options for exploring other areas.

There are many helpful ideas in this short guide. With younger students you may want to allow exploration by using a tool such as Symbaloo, where you can create links to websites that you have vetted and allow students the ability to go to new places that you know are safe.

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's curator insight, October 12, 2014 3:00 AM

 Technology learning is less structured than traditional learning. While it’s important to prepare lessons wisely, there comes a point when you must “let it go” and give in to the human desire for freedom of exploration.

BYOD: The Benefits of Embracing Diversity

BYOD: The Benefits of Embracing Diversity | Technology Education | Scoop.it

There is something powerful about allowing students to use their own devices in the classroom. These are the devices they use to navigate the world. They are also the devices they are most comfortable with. Both of those factors translate into more meaningful, relevant and engaged learning.

Emma Murphy's curator insight, September 12, 2013 9:57 PM

This is very interesting! I've never considered this idea! I would like to see some studies that prove this article right, however. I wonder why this is encouraged in most schools? I would love to hear more about this! 

Ruth Obadia's curator insight, September 13, 2013 2:33 AM

Instead of isolating themselves with their devices, students lean in and collaborate using the devices available. The trick is to design learning opportunities that encourage conversation and collaboration. This approach is more social and engaging for students anyway and allows teachers to leverage the collective intelligence in the room.

robyns tut's curator insight, September 16, 2013 4:12 PM

I think this is a great idea. We truly are moving into an era where technology is taking over and transforming our lives. The way we work and communicate are totally technological based. Teachers need to embrace this new era of technology, we are moving forward and they need to get with it or they will fall behind.
