“The more innovative I have become, the less classroom management I have to deal with.”

“The more innovative I have become, the less classroom management I have to deal with.” | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Someone who was reading “The Innovator’s Mindset“, approached me and talked about the impact it had on their teaching and learning.  I was honoured by their kind words, but this statement that she made has stuck in my head:

“The more innovative I have become, the less classroom management I have to deal with.”

Simple yet mind blowing.

6 Reasons (and Nifty Tools) for Exploring Digital Storytelling

Mary Reilley Clark's curator insight, December 8, 2016 10:18 PM

Wouldn't it be fun to create a challenge for students using digital storytelling tools? How about a book trailer contest, and for each different tool a student uses she gets an entry? Or what about using one tool in different ways? For example, challenge students to use only Storybird to create book trailers for various genres? (Can you make a horror book trailer in Storybird?) Additional tools that would be great for this: Animoto, Powtoon, WeVideo...but the idea is to have them try several concurrently. Get them thinking: which ones were best for the task? Which did they struggle with? Which would they use again? This is all part of developing that digital tool box we want them to have handy for any projects teachers assign, or for exploring their own creativity!

The surprising habits of original thinkers

The surprising habits of original thinkers | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
How do creative people come up with great ideas? Organizational psychologist Adam Grant studies "originals": thinkers who dream up new ideas and take action to put them into the world. In this talk, learn three unexpected habits of originals -- including embracing failure. "The greatest originals are the ones who fail the most, because they're the ones who try the most," Grant says. "You need a lot of bad ideas in order to get a few good ones."

15 best online Presentation Tools for students

15 best online Presentation Tools for students | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
There are some fantastic online presentation tools for students that allow users to mix media and create engaging, fun and interactive slideshows. No one wants to sit through a boring PowerPoint presentation, let alone a class full of students with a low attention span. Using website presentation tools, students can collaborate in group projects or work solo, designing inspiring dynamic presentations that tell a story about their chosen topic. These tools are easy to use, and most have special education sections, so teachers can set up their class as quickly as possible. The list below includes tools for creating slideshows, digital storytelling and poster type mixed media presentations.
