Keyboarding or Computer Literacy: The New Dilemma

Keyboarding or Computer Literacy: The New Dilemma | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Should We Teach Keyboarding, or Just Digital Literacy?

This post rasied the question "Do we need to teach keyboarding?", specifically the QWERTY keyboard.  

Today students have access to digital devices that do not necessarily have keyboards attached. The author explores these issues and shares how his school is dealing with this issue. He also includes a video, 'Digital Natives', that provides a look at how students use technology today.

This may be a question that is being asked at your school, and with the Common Core requiring that students be able to sit and type a document (beginning in Grade 4 with a single page in one sitting and moving to 3 pages in one sitting by Grade 6) it is a question that we may need to explore.

Teach Students What They Don’t Know But Are Ready To Learn

Teach Students What They Don’t Know But Are Ready To Learn | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
What should the goals of gifted education be?

Perhaps the goals of all education forall children...

“Rather than portray the needs of gifted students as being unique, we suggest weaving them into the general education tapestry. To accomplish this, we would revise the chief goal of gifted education to be the chief goal of all education: to ensure that all students receive the education appropriate for them at any given time by maximizing the match between individual students’ educational experiences with their individual educational needs.”

What Is A 21st Century School Supposed To Look Like?

What Is A 21st Century School Supposed To Look Like? | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

"So, what should a school in the 21st Century look like? Well, it’s more than just filling a classroom with tech. It’s about ensuring that five year olds are getting ready for a future that no-one is really be able to predict until they are much older. That also means supporting teachers and giving them the skills to help their students achieve this. Helping teachers understand why it is important for them to use it, so that they can provide useful experiences for their students."

The Innovative Educator: Want to succeed in STEM? Listen to the experts!

The Innovative Educator: Want to succeed in STEM? Listen to the experts! | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

This post begins with a quote from President Obama:

"“The quality of math and science teachers is the most important single factor influencing whether students will succeed or fail in science, technology, engineering and math.” From this point it veers  in a different direction, noting that the issue is that teachers "are not given the freedom to support children in ways that will produce the scientists and innovators our country needs."

If we look to our past (and our present) we will find that we are not listening to the advice that "our nation's historic inventors, scientists, and physicists (whom have shared) their advice and experiences." 

Read the article to learn the experiences of Albert Einstein, Thomas Edison, Richard Feyman, Michio Kaku (which includes a video where he explains "that exams are crushing curiousity out of the next generation..."), as well as individuals around today such as Aaron Iba and Jack Andraka (the student who at the age of 15 created a test for pancreatic cancer).

Perhaps the question we need to ask is how do we change the system to support the necessary learning?

How One Classroom Actually Used iPads To Go Paperless (Part 1: Research) | Edudemic | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

A look at what hapened at Plymouth South High School last year when one class "attempted to transform the traditional research process to a completely paperless one using a fresh cart of iPads."

A number of goals were "outlined prior to the research process" and included (quoting from the post):

* Students will crowd-source their research to a collective research group.

* Students will incorporate varied media types into their research: web based text, traditional text, audio and video.

* Students will work collaboratively with their teacher and classmates on their research and writing process.

* Students will become proficient researching and writing in a digital environment.

The post alos discusses the process of going paperlesand  "moving forward and going paperless."

From Theory to Design: Exploring the Power & Potential of ‘Connected Learning’, Part One | The Young and the Digital

From Theory to Design: Exploring the Power & Potential of ‘Connected Learning’, Part One | The Young and the Digital | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

This post shares an experience in the Texas City High School and the implementation of a "digital media an design project with high school students." The author had worked with the school during the school year and observed many challenges including "the daunting and daily task of keeping students academically engaged; the corrosive effects of chronic absenteeism in the classroom; the impact of economic and familial instability on students, teachers, and schools; and the creative ways youth from poorly resourced schools and households are using digital media."

They set to work with a goal: "could we work with teachers and students to create a more dynamic learning environment?"

Read the article to see the project that was developed and what they have learned.
