Curating vs. Collecting on Twitter for the Education Professional

Curating vs. Collecting on Twitter for the Education Professional | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Via Robin Good, Shirley Williams (appearoo.com/ShirleyWilliams)
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

 

Silvia Rosenthal Tolisano has an interesting and highly visual post on collecting vs. curating with Twitter, and on the curation potential Twitter has in store for those involved in education.

 

She quotes Mike Fisher writing: "Collecting is what kids do when asked to find resources for a particular topic. Usually, it represents the first 3 or 4 hits on a Google search, without meaning, discernment, or connections.

 

Curating is different. It’s the Critical Thinker’s collection, and involves several nuances (see Figure 1) that separate it as an independent and classroom-worthy task."

 

 

Useful. Resourceful. 7/10

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Robin's curated posts hits it on the nail with the distinct differences and although I like the visual aspects of the post, I struggle with referring to Twitter as a curating tool.

 

It is certainly a critical tool for collecting, researching and having the conversations. I think there is a challenge on how to effectively curate with Twitter. I know many use Storify to do this which is often a re- representationof the tweets.

 

 I am very interested in how Twitter will use Summnify aand Posterous in the field of curation.

 

As a result, I really likw the distinctions made and the logic the author takes us through. I would  perhaps be a little more cautious with referring  Twitter as a curation tool.

 

Useful 6/10

How to Make Beautiful and Effective Infographics | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

We process information through our senses. The data you receive from the world - the electronic music from the coffee shop speakers, the smooth feel of the ceramic mug in your hands, the taste and scent of your black coffee and the sight of the person seated across from you - is processed in a way that feels instantaneous and seamless.


In reality, every sensory detail arrives at a different rate, and your brain stitches them together. And most of the information comes through your eyes.

The Rise of Educational Technology as a Sociocultural and Ideological Phenomenon

The push for educational technology exists within a broader political, economic, ideological, and technological context. The all-too-common ignorance of this context and the subtleties of learning itself may prove problematic for edtech — and higher education's future.

Via Ana Cristina Pratas

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, April 11, 2:17 PM

Key Takeaways


The rise of educational technology is part of a larger shift in political thought, from favoring government oversight to asserting free-market principles, as well as a response to the increasing costs of higher education.


The technocentric view that technology can solve these challenges combines with a vision of education as a product that can be packaged, automated, and delivered to students.


Unless greater collaborative efforts take place between edtech developers and the greater academic community, as well as more informed deep understandings of how learning and teaching actually occur, any efforts to make edtech education's silver bullet are doomed to fail.

OPINION: It’s time to stop the clock on math anxiety. Here’s the latest research on how | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
In a newly published paper, researchers showed not only that math anxiety was negatively related to performance in 63 of the 64 countries tested in the Program for International Student Assessment (PISA), but also that the highest achieving students had the most striking negative relationship between math anxiety and performance.
It’s one of the important findings on the brain and mathematics learning that has profound implications for students’ achievement in math, and one that I’ll discuss this morning (April 3) and later this week as math experts gather at a pair of key math-education conferences in San Antonio: The NCSM Leadership in Mathematics Education’s annual conference and the National Council of Teachers of Mathematics’ annual meeting.

But thanks to a host of free online resources, anyone can design high-quality visual stories with ease.

Of course, navigating the sea of online images and editing tools is easier said than done. Some require membership, others charge royalty fees, some require advance permission and others charge for high-definition.

Fortunately, we’ve scoured the Web for the most complete, the easiest to use and the most innovative resources to aid even the most amateur designer in crafting stunning visual content.

Placing devices within the context of learning theory can help schools and districts prioritize around education technology. One of the most common questions asked when a discussion turns to education technology is “What device should I buy?” For all of the reasons aforementioned, the answer is always “the one that does what you need it to do.”

How teachers and stduents use digital tools includes tact and thoughtfulness. The word technology is about a thoughtful conversation and wisdom, not about the tools themselves. If, as Maslow suggested, we only use a hammer, everything begins to look like a nail. We have the wrong tool for the situation.

Jupiter One

Jupiter One | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:
This will be the best $49 you have invested as a teacher. I highly recommend Jupiter Grade Book as a primary district wide or for back up individualized use for a single teacher. As a single teacher user. be sure to secure parent consent and administrator consent before using interactive student/parent components. If this is not used district or school wide I recommend strict use of district tools for all formal discussions on conflicts about grades, behavior or any personal student issues. This program will assist you in maintaining a backup source that is transferable usually with paste and cut to any district programs. So if you transfer to a new school your years of work easily can go with you. Our school wide system limits my control over data storage in many ways. 

This program allows me to preplan my lessons at my convenience during the summer. The Jupiter sight also allows me to leave in those kids that drop out then come back one month later when living with Mom or Dad in another school district didn't work out and have their data at my figure tips. 

As a single user I do not store as much personal student data on Jupiter to increase privacy control and usually use first name last Initial  for both student and parent, I do try to maintain e-mail and phone contact info like I would have once kept on a class phone log....Though I've never had a breach or lost data. If you choose to use the interactive features with students or students in form of e-mail or direct access to there stored work or evaluation tools to submit work or take test then make sure to have parents and students complete forms of agreement and make it clear that school rules apply to all supplemental teacher, student, parent interactions and any improper behavior or use will be reported to the administration. This is easy as all of these interactions occur with an electronic data trail that can be printed and submitted to administrators from either a student, parent or instructor....So all parties need to carefully think about what they are doing whether Jupiter is used by a single teacher as class supplemental studies, backup grade book and testing tool or system wide. It appears new features like a portfolio have been added since I last used this program. I have been  recently using Fresh Grade.com for it's great portfolio/grade book features... Fresh grade has somewhat different features Jupiter does not or did not do as well....But Fresh Grade does not have as many features as Jupiter. I will write about FreshGrade.com later and continue to share my experiences with these classroom management tools.

“Mom, can you help me build a videogame?” | Ayanna Murray | Scratch Foundation Blog | Medium.com

“Mom, can you help me build a videogame?” | Ayanna Murray | Scratch Foundation Blog | Medium.com | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

“Mom, I think I’m going to build a video game. I’ve already started on the storyline,” my daughter said as she handed me what seemed to be a 20-page report.

I looked over the carefully-crafted story and drawings of kids traveling through a fictional world trying to save the planet from being destroyed.

“Wow! This looks really good.”

“I’ve already started sketching out the characters and their personality descriptions.”

“You’ve put a lot of time into this. But don’t you think you should probably learn how to make a video game first?”

“I know…can you help me?”

In the past, whenever my kids expressed interest in doing something I’ve been able to come through. You wanna play basketball? No problem — I’ve got that covered. Art, sure, I can make that happen! Science experiments, you came to the right person. Theatre, I’ll write the script!

But, when my 12-year old daughter Jayda asked me to help her build a video game, I had no idea where to start. Well, that’s not completely true. Whenever I’m stuck, I do what millions of parents do when their kids come home from school and ask them to help with a strange math problem or homework that is way beyond their expertise. I went straight to YouTube!

Five Ways To Shift Teaching Practice So Students Feel Less Math Anxious - MindShift

Five Ways To Shift Teaching Practice So Students Feel Less Math Anxious - MindShift | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Math has been a traditionally thorny subject in many American schools. Lots of children dislike math and many more adults stopped taking mathematics as soon as they are able, even when they were successful in their classes. At the same time, mathematical thinking is a crucial part of many of the most exciting and growing careers in science, technology, engineering and math, not to mention important for a general understanding of the mathematical world around us. So, what can U.S. math educators do to shift this dynamic?

Victor Ventura's curator insight, April 6, 12:42 PM
My takeaways-abandon the lock step method of teaching math and don't focus on students' speed, performance or right or wrong answers. Instead, ask teachers to have students tackle open-ended problems, share ideas, and make math a creative endeavor.
