Gust MEES's curator insight, February 23, 12:38 PM

YouTube is a fantastic way to keep your kids entertained with a tablet or smartphone, but it’s also a little concerning. You just never know if your child will end up using the suggested videos feature to jump from Sesame Street’s Elmo to a drunk Elmo parody, or view inappropriate advertising.

Google is aiming to solve that problem with a new app called YouTube Kids available on Monday for Android and iOS. The Kurio and nabi kids’ tablets will also receive the app in the coming weeks.

Early reports about the app surfaced late last week, but details were a little thin. Now that the app is available we can say that at first glance this app should appeal to parents and kids alike.

Silverback Learning's curator insight, February 24, 12:38 PM

Have you checked this new app yet? We are curious to know what parents and educators think.

No sólo se debe enfocar en la cantidad de herramientas tecnológicas o recursos digitales que los docentes de determinado nivel educativo puedan implementar en su práctica pedagógica, sin antes se reflexiona la manera como las tecnologías pueden ser de utilidad para generar aprendizaje de manera individual o colaborativo, todo depende del tipo de estrategia o técnica a ser empleada, si se va a centrar en resolver problemas o desarrollar proyectos. Es parte de lo que propone el modelo TPACK, integración de diversos conocimientos que atiendan de manera transversal la realidad cotidiana de los alumnos, de la sociedad y del mundo.

The Complexities of Collaboration

The Complexities of Collaboration | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Through my experiences and after questioning other educators, I have determined that your ability to collaborate effectively is influenced by many factors-
  • Previous experience
  • Growth mindset
  • School context
  • Time
  • Personality
  • Insecurity
  • Perceived value of collaboration
  • Understanding of collaboration-what it is and isn’t.
  • Appreciation of others
  • Learning philosophy
  • Balanced Contribution
  • Belief in a common goal
  • Autonomy or Interdependence- Seeing yourself as ‘we’ not just ‘me'

Only learners do the learning! They must recognise the value of the work, because learning can be hard work at times. Unless there is a good answer to the question, 'Why does this matter?' then student engagement will struggle and thus learning will tend to struggle. Get ready teachers, because this question will become more common as a curriculum or classroom question and the answer needs to resonate with the learners.

After deciding on outcome to be achieved of learning particular course (learning outcome), gaps to reaching the outcome should be identified at requirement plane, strategy plane, interaction plane and sensory plane. In course of doing so, gaps in knowledge, skills, confidence, motivation and access that learners may have should be addressed through course delivery, that careful planning be made through the planning, determination of objectives, implementation and evaluation stage of curriculum.

Sketchnoting, in its purest form, is creating a personal visual story as one is listening to a speaker or reading a text. I also believe the interactive notebook, which includes the process of taking "regular" notes" while listening to a speaker and later creating a sketchnote of the text notes, would also be considered sketchnoting. This page will provide links, ideas, tips,and research evidence dealing with the power of sketchnoting. If you are looking for a book on the topic, the seminal work is this book by Mike Rohde.

Nocking The Arrow: Self-Directed vs. Self-Determined Learning; What's the Difference?

Nocking The Arrow: Self-Directed vs. Self-Determined Learning; What's the Difference? | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

In this age of abundance of information, shifting classroom pedagogy isn't nearly enough to make learning in school more relevant and authentic for the learner. Self-directed learning (andragogy), and self-determined learning (heutagogy) are the ideals necessary in making students "future ready" to live and learn in a web connected world.


While original research applied these concepts to mature learners, it has become apparent that even young children have an abundant capacity for recognizing and directing their own learning. Anyone who has observed toddlers learning how to walk and talk understand the motivation and skill development that quickly develops during these processes.


Considered by some to be on a learning continuum, self-directed learning and self-determined learning have at least one distinct difference. What is this difference, and why should educators care? - See more at: http://rtschuetz.blogspot.co.uk/2014/12/self-directed-vs-self-determined.html?spref=tw#sthash.oSVChVeN.dpuf

  Re: Contact with School System Employees and Presence on School Property

Dear Ms. Cook:

     As you are very aware, I represent the Wilson County Schools. This letter is intended to provide you notice that you are no longer to communicate with school employees or set foot on the campus or property of the Wilson County Schools for any purpose whatsoever.

 

  Due to your harassing nature of communications with school employees, and your propensity to file unfounded complaints against school system employees, you are not to contact any school system employees or be present on the Wilson County Schools' property.  All communications regarding your pending due process petition, or otherwise involving any of your children, will be directed to, and received from, myself as the attorney for the Wilson County Schools. If you contact school system employees, they will not respond. If you disregard this letter and are present on school system property , you will be subject to criminal prosecution under the North Carolina criminal trespass laws (N.C. Gen. Stat. Ch. 14, Art. 22B). 


There are no circumstances under which school officials should have to fear baseless allegations or for their own safety, particularly from a parent with no children in the school system, while they are trying to go about their normal duties. There are significant potential consequences if you fail to regard this notice with the seriousness with which it is intended.


  The school system regrets that this action is necessary but adamantly believes it to be so, based on your conduct.


Ms. Dorothy Cook

This was sent as the result of the City of Wilson,NC Police Department Intake Officer S. Moore reviewing the evidence presented which included a portion of the"Due Process Petition  " required Court Case procedure  Resolution Meeting which took place 2.18/2013 Docket Number 13-EDC-07545 but changed by Wilson County Schools Attorney Rachel Hitch per said court documents to Docket Number 13-EDC-07547 allowed by NC OAH without proper procedures being filed. Officer S, Moore filed Police Report stating Dorothy Cook, Prose rep was" Assaulted" by Wilson County School Exceptional Children Director during the NC OAH required Court procedure.  There also was a complaint filed with the Wilson County Schools Board also. As well as with the North Carolina Office of Administrative Hearing as the case was a Special Education Contested Case filed Prose because of the indigent financial economic status of the family which as a result there was no financial means of paying for an attorney and all the "free" legal aid assistance including some neighboring area law schools that sometimes take cases of their interest had no available assistance and or such organizations as ECAC had limited intended issues they were assisting with and some was just simply not in the family jurisdiction to help. As the damages and harm done to Dorothy Cook by WCS Officials during and in direct relations with said NC OAH Special Education Contested Court Case 13-EDC-07545 was the reason that the presiding Judge Augustus Elkins allowed Prose Rep. Dorothy Cook to withdraw her case 13-EDC-07545 without prejudice as due to the severity of harm and damages done she could not continue with said case. As WCS attorney February 18,2013 dated letter and its effects did have and continue to have extreme negative effects even to the added point that the school aged children of Dorothy Cook is denied and deprived of their Human RIGHT to enroll and attend Wilson County Public School  a NC Public School  for several years continually as the results of the harm and damage done to their parent during and directly associated with said case and Wilson County Schools Officials she can no longer home her children and has given Wilson County Schools attorney and many others but non were or are Wilson County Schools Employees notice of such and they know as special needs children that education should be consistent but they are killing these children by educational neglect as NC Public Schools are not held accountable by NC Attendance Compulsory Law as the criminals they are and the NC BODY OF GOVERNMENT CONTINUES TO ALLOW IT TO BE DONE but in the history of North Carolina their has never been a "WHITE" child(ren) and or their parent denied and deprived and education and made to receive no education at all that was school aged qualified , special needs qualified and a NC District Court Judge has stated per his findings in a separate but related court case that the parent had met all that is required by her per NC law for the child(ren) to be enrolled and attending NC Public Schools the LEA which the parent and her school age children reside in and has mad and continue to make requests for her children to be enrolled and attend Wilson County Public Schools to Rachel Hitch only per her February 18,2013 DATED LETTER OF REPRISAL  as written in part above but no such instruction has been provided and as a result even the more harm and damages occur daily as their determination to learn is destroyed as when hope is removed when no education at ALL continues and their hearts breaks they cry both inside and out and not even the Courts per Wilson ,NC District Attorney Office states has any jurisdiction to criminally prosecute the Wilson County Public Schools Officials as there is no law on the Book to prosecute them criminally by but there is for parents, guardians and students that apply by usage of NC Compulsory Attendance Law but again NC Public Schools Officials such as Wilson County Schools does not apply at all. As parent made contact with the Wilson County Department of Social Services Child Protective Services for help with getting child(ren) in school it was stated she was not unfit parent therefore their is nothing they can do as they have no jurisdiction over or in the Wilson County Schools System themselves. Parent contacted Juvenile Delinquency Department Wilson,NC , Mr. Mike Walston in regards to the children possibility of having charges filed against them well 1 child at that time as she still is a minor in elementary school grade but Mr. Mike Walston said It appears she was not allowed to attend school which makes the situation much different its not that she is not willing or trying to attend school so he didn't there would be any reason for charges against her as she is now 12 years old and her highest grade graduated is the 3th grade and 2014-2015 is the 3rd nc public school year she is being denied and deprived her right to attend nc public schools for complete nc public school yea at a time!   I ASK IS IT A CRIME OR NOT ?   THIS IS OPEN LETTER NC HAS BEEN ASKED TO CHANGE THE NC COMPULSORY ATTENDANCE LAW TO INCLUDE THE NCPUBLIC SCHOOLS OFFICIALS AS THIS WILL NOT HAPPEN TO ANY OTHER PARENT AND CHILDREN WITH A  CRIMINAL MEANS OF EQUAL PROSECUTION BEING AVAILABLE AS IT IS A CRIME THAT IS ONLY NOW IN NC PROSECUTIABLE CRIMINALLY BY LAW IF A PARENT , GUARDIAN AND OR STUDENT IS ALLEGED AS BEING IN VIOLATION OF IT BY NC PUBLIC SCHOOLS OFFICIALS AND AS SUCH THE NC PUBLIC SCHOOLS OFFICIALS ARE ABUSING ITS POWER KNOWING THEY ARE NOT INCLUDED AND USING IT JIM CROW SWING SO LOW TO EDUCATE THE NIGGERS NOT AS NOT DONE IN PAST TIMES TO KEEP AFRICAN AMERICAN CHILDREN FROM BEING EDUCATED IN THE NC PUBLIC SCHOOLS SYSTEM ! BUT ENOUGH IS ENOUGH WE ARE NO LONGER MASTERS SLAVES WE REFUSE TO ALLOW THE STATE OF NORTH CAROLINA TO USE THEIR JIM CROW METHODS TO WHIP OUR CHILDREN BACK TO A TIME WHEN NIGGERS WERE NOT ALLOWED TO LEARN TO READ ONLY THE WHITE CHILDREN WAS SO NOW SEGREGATION INCLUDES WE JUST WANT LET THEM ENROLL OR ATTEND THEY TO POOR AND DISABLED AND WILL DIE OUT AND DEAD CHILDREN DONT NEED AN EDUCATION!

If you want to bring the “real world” into the classroom, consider integrating social media into your lessons.

In a maker classroom, no two projects look alike, which can be difficult to manage within a 40- or 50-minute period. Stanford’s d.school has developeddesign thinking, which is a codification of the artistic or scientific way of thinking:


  • Understanding and empathy
  • Defining the problem
  • Brainstorming solutions 
  • Prototyping a solution
  • Testing the solution
  • Reiterating.

Design thinking allows teachers to have control over messy maker projects. You can set distinct time restraints for different steps of the process that will keep everyone on roughly the same timeline. For instance, you can insist that the research phase is finished by a certain date so that students can share information with one another before they move on to the brainstorming stage.

Understanding vs. Experience

So should students make things? Asking them to express an idea translated into another medium requires them to know something holistically and more deeply. They must understand both its complexities and its parts. It's the same as knowing something well enough to teach it -- you have to understand it completely, as well as how all the different pieces fit together. Students may know how many troops died during the Vietnam War, but going to the Memorial and experiencing it physically, walking through the space, touching the names and having a personal connection is a more human way of knowing. This understanding is intricately tied to our senses and creates a deeper, layered knowing of an abstract concept, making it personal and relevant.

Can creativity be taught? Maybe not, but it can be nurtured. The Maker Movement does this so well. I’ve seen kids and adults get really excited about producing things. Here are some ideas for incorporating that thinking into schools.
