Teachers Don't Need Convincing, They Need Training to Use Ed Tech

Teachers Don't Need Convincing, They Need Training to Use Ed Tech | Technology for Kids in the Classroom | Scoop.it
A survey of 200 Idaho teachers found that most want to use educational technology, but many are not familiar with or don't have access to the latest offerings.

Yes - no point in having all of this wonderful software if no-one knows how to use it, or more importantly are not able to use it because the school doesn't allow access.

Time to stir your ed-tech thinking as you ramp up a new school year. 

Gary Harwell's curator insight, September 1, 9:54 AM

Roles are good.

Reshelle Johnson's curator insight, September 1, 11:22 AM

Google is gaining a foothold in classrooms.  My former employer now has a Google Chrome program in place and used this past summer to educate teachers on their use.  The feedback was good.  I am going to keep in touch with some of my former coworkers and will see how the program pans out over the course of the school year.

Does Losing Handwriting In School Mean Losing Other Skills Too?

Does Losing Handwriting In School Mean Losing Other Skills Too? | Technology for Kids in the Classroom | Scoop.it
Learning to write by hand has learning benefits that could be neglected if too much focus is put on keyboarding.

This is an ongoing discussion between my English Teacher friend and I.  I think the real question is why are we still teaching keyboarding??

Vanesa Juarez's curator insight, June 9, 8:48 AM

No és una crítica a les noves tecnologies, però hi ha coses que potser s'haurien de continuar aprenent com abans: "Children not only learn to read more quickly when they first learn to write by hand, but they also remain better able to generate ideas and retain information."

Allan Shaw's curator insight, June 13, 1:21 AM

It is becoming clearer that it is important that we do not lose  handwriting as a skill! Strong positive neural development in a child is far more important than adeptness in using digital technologies. If research continues to support these initial studies many educators will need to reflect and possibly readjust.

Sharla Shults's curator insight, June 16, 2:57 PM

New evidence suggests that the links between handwriting and broader educational development run deep. Children not only learn to read more quickly when they first learn to write by hand, but they also remain better able to generate ideas and retain information. In other words, it’s not just what we write that matters — but how.

SAMR: Augmenting your Creativity and Amplifying your Curiosity - TechChef | Technology for Kids in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"While there has been a bit of question as to the effectiveness of SAMR, a shift to move beyond SAMR, and a few proposed changes to the structure of the model floating around online, I have to say that hearing Dr. Ruben Puentedura (you may know him as the father of SAMR) speak at iPad Summit a few weeks ago still felt like a rare app-ortunity and a truly inspiring treat. As I am still collecting my thoughts and ideas from the event, I wanted to share some really great resources from the Dr. SAMR. "

This year’s “The Learning Curve” report from Pearson takes a look at education across the globe. One of the main things the report does is rank the world’s educational systems (which we’ll talk about in a different post). What I find even more interesting is the focus on what skills current students need to meet the ever changing needs of the global market, and some potential ways to address shortcomings in our collective educational systems.
