Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, October 17, 2:26 PM
Well thought out project-based learning engages students and lets them be responsible for their learning. I began each year with Science Fairs. I let students choose their projects and partner up as needed. Frequently, the projects involved other students to gather data. I had students describe why they choice a topic.

They surprised me with the complexity of choices they made. The results did not always support their hypotheses, but I asked them to reflect on what might have happened. When they presented, they provided insight into what might have impacted results and where they might take this.

In the process, they develop divergent, convergent and metacognitive thinking abilities.

Mel Riddile's curator insight, October 6, 12:51 PM

There is a wealth of psychology research that can help teachers to improve how they work with students – but academic studies of this kind aren’t always easy to access, or to translate into the realities of classroom practice. This series seeks to redress that, by taking a selection of studies and making sense of the important information for teachers.

QUANTUM LEAPS WE CAN EXPECT IN TEACHING AND LEARNING IN THE DIGITAL AGE - Stephen Downes


Via Ana Cristina Pratas

Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, October 16, 5:28 AM

"Education is change, and change is at once our greatest strength and our greatest challenge. Change happens in society gradually and imperceptibly, but change happens to individuals abruptly and without warning. It is as though we wake up one morning to find that the world we once knew has disappeared, while all around us people proceed with their lives as usual as though nothing had happened.

 

This essay is about change. It is about the change we see individually in our homes and in our workplaces, and this essay is about the larger changes sweeping through society. This essay is also about technology, where we think of ‘technology’ in its broadest sense. It’s about information, computation, automation and analytics. It sets these against a milieu of broad social and cultural change, where we are afforded both the chance to redesign our system of education from the ground up, and the need to preserve what is important and valuable and desirable in the system we already have.

 

This essay is addressed to both the teachers of today and to the students of tomorrow. It is addressed to policy makers and pundits, to technology designers and developers, and to those who by virtue of office or inclination have the voice to speak to the future, to inform the weld of what we can do and what we want to do. To change the world, one must get inside change, and look outward at all the possibilities that change affords, and then choose."

Instead, it is hoped that children will develop critical thinking skills so that they can analyze situations, think about different outcomes, and present well-reasoned conclusions. To help children develop critical thinking skills, there are some apps, tools, and resources. Here is a list of the top seven.

How to Set Up Blubrry PowerPress to Podcast with WordPress

How to Set Up Blubrry PowerPress to Podcast with WordPress | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Blubrry is awesome. Far more than a delicious fruit rich in antioxidants or the name of what I dream Violet Beauregard would call a new tech start-up, Blubrry is the parent company of the scrumdiddlyumptious PowerPress plugin that gives WordPress audiophiles full control of their audio files.

 

Unlike services such as Libsyn and Soundcloud, which can link to your WordPress site, Blubrry PowerPress lets your primary interaction with your podcast be where you’re obviously most comfortable–your very own WordPress dashboard.

 

What is Blubrry PowerPress, Exactly?

In a nutshell, Blubrry PowerPress an all-in-one plugin that lets you upload, host, and publish a podcast entirely from your WordPress website. You don’t have to go through an external service (though you can if you want.) Everything from subscription options, a built-in player, and RSS management work right out of the box. Errr…the plugin repository....

The challenge is not information storage but information processing. It's not about information itself but how to use information. The teaching of creativity, curiosity, critical thinking, analytical thinking, problem-solving, and a love of learning itself will be critical to transitioning from the industrial age to the automated age.
