Marisol Pamela Hernández Orellana's curator insight, May 13, 9:49 AM

Ninguna herramienta Tecnológica es infalible y ante ello siempre hay que tener un plan B...calma y asumir que navegamos en aguas caóticas que nos implicarán flexibilidad!!!!


Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, May 13, 4:49 PM

One thing that would be helpful is not to force digital technologies on good teachers. They need support and it can be provided by providing them with opportunities to plan their professional development. They other thing that is important is do not assume that resistance is being tech shy. I resisted, but am hardly tech shy. What I resisted was the external experts who thought they knew more about my teaching and students than I did.

What Students Can Actually DO With An iPad

What Students Can Actually DO With An iPad | Technology for school | Scoop.it
Online, in workshops, and even with friends, I frequently get asked What can the iPad actually do? as a sort of challenge to the worth of the device. I would rather that they ask, What can you actually do with an iPad?

A look at using iPads with a focus on how an English teacher approaches the question. One example (of four) provided (and quoted):

I want my students to demonstrate their knowledge of the parts of the story.

Learning Objectives: In addition to learning the story elements, students learn...

 * To write a constructive review (plus three more objectives)

Followed by a project, in this case a book poster and suggestions on what apps might be used.

So perhaps the question is not what can a student do, but what can a student do with an iPad (that demonstrate their skills and expertise - think Bloom's taxonomy).

Marshall Gass's curator insight, October 4, 6:01 PM

Using an Ipad effectively in today's world is as essential as knowing your alphabets digitally. Its no more just to play games and take pictures. The number of Apps available to expand learning and knowledge is incredible.

 

Perhaps your child needs to expand his learning horizon much more than simple 'stunts'. Read this article to be informed.

Can your class survive a week without Technology?

Can your class survive a week without Technology? | Technology for school | Scoop.it

Gleeson shares three scenarios that may happen in your classroom (they did in his) and in each case the result was that the students were not able to use the Internet. When we work with technology things often happen, and the end result may be the lesson plan that you had goes out the window. This post asks us if we are prepared for these types of scenarios and raises some other questions that may be considered.
You may also want to check out a post he refers to in this post that shares Web 2.0 tools that may be used by students under 13. The post, Web 2.0 for the Under 13s Crowd, is located at:

http://mgleeson.edublogs.org/2012/07/05/web-2-0-for-the-under-13s-crowd/. (It is also in this Scoop.it).

How To Integrate Education Technology With Scaffolding

How To Integrate Education Technology With Scaffolding | Technology for school | Scoop.it

As teachers we think about scaffolding for our students, but at times we neglect to consider scaffolding when asking students to use new technology in the classroom. This post shares experiences from two teachers and their use of technology. It includes a great table that begins with the "Helpful Hint: Never assume that your students know how to do anything when it comes to technology."
