Educational Leadership:Motivation Matters:Curiosity Is Fleeting, but Teachable

Educational Leadership:Motivation Matters:Curiosity Is Fleeting, but Teachable | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Founded in 1943, ASCD (formerly the Association for Supervision and Curriculum Development) is an educational leadership organization dedicated to advancing best practices and policies for the success of each learner.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Curiosity is always a basic strong motivator. Arousing curiosity can be a challenge after life often trains people to discourage people from following natural curiosities to discover knowledge..

5 Tips for Providing Effective Feedback to Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

5 Tips for Providing Effective Feedback to Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

In a recent post published by Edutopia entitled " 5 research-based tips for providing students with meaningful feedback", Stenger made a strong case for the importance of feedback in students learning. She backed her argument with a plethora of scientific studies and came up with some useful suggestions for teachers to consider when giving feedback to students.

The End of Neighborhood Schools

The End of Neighborhood Schools | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
New Orleans is home to the nation’s first all-charter district. Is this the future of education?

Via Artur Coelho
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Interesting that we keep hearing you cannot improve schools by throwing money at them ...then why are the Gates and Walmart heirs and other rich people throwing it at charters rather than neighborhood public schools? People are always free to donate to public schools as well.

 

Community public schools would leave the power of control with those in the community rather than the owners of the system sold to the community. Dividing a community effort has much the same outcome as dividing a family. The unit and the connection is weakened.  Rather than playing on the same team for common community goals each is instead a threat or competition to the other. If the goal is to drop the teaching credentials to lower the standards of entry teachers to people who didn't bother to train to enter the profession but instead desire to compete with other teachers for pay then that model should be allowed to the public schools as well if it actually is a valid model.

 

Competition is not really a team sport...it is dog eat dog activity and everyone knows that to be true. Competitive games are fun as a thrill at a sport activity, but let us face the fact nearly everyone at the game is sitting out and watching at the end of the day and not playing on the field. Those that are only very, very rarely stay in the game for a life time. Is that really what we want for our lifetime learning experience?

ClassJump - Free web sites for teachers

ClassJump - Free web sites for teachers | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Free Web Sites For Teachers

ClassJump.com provides teachers web sites free of charge, where multiple classes can be managed and updated using an easy to understand interface. No knowledge of web site programming is needed to get your class or classes set up and quickly providing up-to-date information for your students and parents.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:


Classjump.com

Love this site. If you try it and like it please don't forget to help foot the bill. Classjump isn't overly sleek but I can connect with my students here in a great way and it is very easy to use. Students and parents are informed the site is learning and club supplement only. All formal issues having to do with grades or problems go through the official school sites and procedures and are not dealt with on this class web page I set up with classjump.com.

 

I can print off any inappropriate entries submitted (which has never happened so far) and report it to administrators just as I can in my classroom.  I inform the students and parents through "must sign as read" printouts of conduct requirements and use of the class web page. I can also ban inappropriate users from making entries. The WEB page is solely to connect online learning experiences and class related online discussions within class to an extended online learning format and provide makeup info for those out sick or need a review and for those that wish to learn more on their own. I think public writing challenges all of us, including me to improve writing and proofing skills. No one wants to look bad in front of others if they can avoid it. We have never had anyone make fun of weak writing skills displayed from each other. I think we all know we could be the next one to "mess up"' our written statement and understand we are there to share our thoughts, work, enjoy connections and support but mainly seek to encourage and understand each other while we learn.

 

My students have indicated they would like to be able to comment on each other’s art work, upload their work from their own devices and interact about their work on this site. So far students can only personally send/upload me a document or photo to review and the other students cannot view or comment on what they send to me. With appropriate etiquette and criticism training it would be great if the students could comment on the work documents summited when fellow students seek input. I can post these as photos and use the class message boards for comments. It would be good to be able to post a pic of their art work to the message board so that students wishing input on their work could request it there directly. Only I can post the photos on the photo albums.  Students cannot upload images of their artwork from their devices.

 

 I use the site also to connect my students with enrichment material and hope to back up my own classroom instruction there and on JUNO/Jupitergrades.com as well with video and printouts of my core instruction. I find myself repeating the same thing over and over to those that miss class or just don't pay attention. I’m sure hearing all this repeated in the background isn’t fun for those that listened the first time and have to hear it continually restated for those that couldn’t or didn’t listen. I intend to give them a link to replay very soon. It will take some time to get all my key content uploaded. My only regret is that all this wasn't available years ago when I would have looked better on videos.

3D-printed internet traffic looks a lot like your first attempt at pottery | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Unless you live under the tyranny of a bandwidth cap, you probably aren't spending much time looking at the amount of data passing through your home

Via Artur Coelho
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

A bandwidth cap is tyranny of thought, knowledge, opportunity and innovation. I haven't ever heard it stated better. The word tyranny is exactly the right word! Most people with these caps hesitate to utilize the internet to its full advantage in their lives to avoid high, costly penalties that may as well be called fines. This is used as a way of also forcing people to pay for more than they will ever use just to avoid the fines that normally work to keep them well under their available data amount.

 

That behavior allows ISPs to underserve and do far less upgrading of their service which is already often unavailable or weak in many areas even for those who already pay for service. That even further curtails their use of the WEB and the information and knowledge that is there or that they might share with others. 

 

Mobile devices are the main way most around the world get their connections and in many places, especially in America, mobile data connections come with data caps as a way to force less use, thus require less work for improved services from ISPs and play gotcha games with those they are supposed to serve in order to garnish more profits for what are often poor service companies no matter how big the company name is.

Why It Pays To Choose the Right Transcription Services

Why It Pays To Choose the Right Transcription Services | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Every firm, blogger, writer, journalist or company is spoiled for choice when it comes to choosing the right Transcription Services Company. The solid truth is that - in the market there are hundreds of Transcription Services companies to choose from, not all of them will meet your standards or needs.

 

One of the bad experiences really stood out!!!

 

One fine day, I asked one of the Transcriber to transcribe an hour-long interview for me. The gentlemen with confidence & excitement said “Yes, of course!! I can do that for you.” I sent him the file on his specified e-mail ID and was rest assured that the work will be done well. Few hours later, I received an e-mail from the gentlemen saying: “I am done with the assigned task but need some more time for correction.” I allotted more time to him still rest assured that the work will be quality. Finally, at the end of the day, I received the final file but the work was a real mess – the final output was not making any sense to me. Paragraphs were transcribed in such a manner that I really had tough time getting the hang of it.

 

After reading an awful experience, do you still look out for the Cheap Business Option? Well, cheap option may sound attractive at first but the final output will always be a mess.

 

I would love to hear your stories if you ever have had an awful experiences with the cheap business services, be it Transcription or otherwise.

 

Finally I get my audio files transcribed to text by professionals at http://www.habiledata.com/transcription.php
