Se você perguntar a um aluno o que o torna bem sucedido na escola, provavelmente você não ouvirá sobre de algum livro fantástico novo ou série de palestras . Muito provavelmente você vai ouvir algo como: "Foi tudo o Sr. Jones. Ele simplesmente nunca desistiu de mim. "
O que os alunos tiram de uma educação bem-sucedida, geralmente vem de uma ligação pessoal com um professor que incutiu a paixão e inspiração por determinada aprendizagem.

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.

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.

8 Examples of Transforming Lessons Through the SAMR Cycle | Emerging Education Technologies

8 Examples of Transforming Lessons Through the SAMR Cycle | Emerging Education Technologies | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
The SAMR Model for integrating technology into teaching, developed by Dr. Ruben Puentedura, has gained a good deal of exposure in recent years. “SAMR” is an acronym that stands for Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition. The SAMR model provides a technique for moving through degrees of technology adoption to find more meaningful uses of technology in teaching and move away from simply using “tech for tech’s sake”.

We recently discussed the SAMR model during an Academic Technology Work Group meeting at The College of Westchester. We examined the video, SAMR in 120 Seconds. One thing that really struck me is how much the example helped, so I made it a point to gather and/or create some more examples.

The Dangers of the Good Child | The Book of Life

The Dangers of the Good Child | The Book of Life | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

They do their homework on time; their writing is neat; they keep their bedroom tidy; they are often a little shy; they want to help their parents; they use their brakes when cycling down a hill.

Because they don’t pose many immediate problems, we tend to assume all is well with good children. They aren’t the target for particular concern; that goes to the kids who are graffitiing the underpass. People imagine the good children are fine; because they do everything that’s expected of them.

And that, of course, is precisely the problem. The secret sorrows – and future difficulties – of the good boy or girl begin with their inner need for excessive compliance. The good child isn’t good because by a quirk of nature they simply have no inclination to be anything else. They are good because they have no other option. Their goodness is a necessity rather than a choice.

Many good children are good out of love of a depressed harassed parent who makes it clear they just couldn’t cope with any more complications or difficulties. Or maybe they are very good to soothe a violently angry parent who could become catastrophically frightening at any sign of less than perfect conduct. Or perhaps the parent was very busy and distracted; only by being very good could the child hope to gain a sliver of their interest.

But this repression of more challenging emotions, though it produces short-term pleasant obedience, stores up a huge amount of difficulty in later life. Practiced educators and parents should spot signs of exaggerated politeness – and treat them as the danger they are.

Placing devices within the context of learning theory can help schools and districts prioritize around education technology.

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?

ASCD EDge - Can Educators Ignore Social Media Any Longer? | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Social media enables collaboration, which for adult learning is the key to success for most adults. The best form of collaboration comes through conversation, which is often enabled by various social media tools. The key to accepting social media as a tool for learning comes in the term “Social”. This requires involving other people in order to have a conversation. This requirement precludes the use of social media being a passive endeavor. It takes time to learn the tools, time to learn the culture, and time to learn the strategies to effectively learn through social media. All of this discourages people from even attempting to change what has made them comfortable in their profession. It requires effort, time, and work.

I selected this article from Curatti written by Susan Gilbert because it helps you improve your visual marketing with shareable infographics.

 

Visual graphics can be both fun and informative for your niche audience.

 

Create Infographics That Grow Your Following Online

 

People are drawn to appealing content that grabs their attention right away. I agree that infographics can help attract more subscribers and followers.

 

Gilbert shows you how to create graphics that audiences are more willing to share.

 

Here's what caught my attention:

 

  • Find out what is on the minds of your target market the most before designing your infographic. Make sure the content is both timely and relevant.

 

  • Focus on a specific group inside your niche and appeal to their pressing problems and needs. Make good on what your title promises to them.

 

  • If you have a study or a lot of data put it into a fun infographic. This is a great way to turn boring content into something interesting.
