Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 15, 2013 10:30 PM

Are you interested in learning more about US copyright law for educators (and also for those in Australia) or how to find and adapt Creative Common materials for you class? These two classes (and others) are being offered at the School of Open through P2PU. There are also courses that you may take any time. For the courses mentioned above you must register by Sunday, March 17th and they begin next week. The others are available at any time.

Many schools are beginning to look at using open source materials, and if you search this Scoop.it you will find quite a few resources about open source materials, but these are the first classes I have seen that are geared to educators around issues that we should educate ourselves if we are going to be going in the direction of open source. If you have the time consider signing up for one of the classes.

10  Good Strategies to Foster A Growth Mindset Culture in Your Class

10  Good Strategies to Foster A Growth Mindset Culture in Your Class | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
In her celebrated book ‘Mindset: The New Psychology of Success’, Stanford university psychologist Carol S. Dweck makes a strong case backed up with  scientific evidence for the power of mindset in shaping one’s success or failure in almost every facet of our life.Those with a fixed mindset mentality tend to be limited in their learning scope believing that their inner traits and abilities are biologically determined. On the other hand, people with a growth mindset embrace change and tend to learn more from life experiences because for them concepts such as skills, abilities and competencies are not fixated  and can be developed through a process of error and trial.

In today’s post, we are sharing with you this handy infographic we created based on Marcus Guido’s post ’10 Ways Teachers Can Instill a Growth Mindset in Students’. Guido walks you through the different strategies you can use with your students to cultivate a growth mindset in your class and ultimately enhance students learning.  Read his post to learn more about each of the strategies featured here.

How to Build a Maker Culture in Your Library  

How to Build a Maker Culture in Your Library   | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Diana Rendina writes: "School libraries are starting makerspaces all over the world. It’s an exciting time in education as we rediscover the power of creativity. But many schools rush to start makerspaces so quickly that they neglect building the maker culture. Developing a maker culture is a lot like developing a love of reading, it takes time and persistence and it’s totally worth it. Here’s a few ways that you can work to cultivate a love of making and creativity in your students."

Mary Reilley Clark's curator insight, March 20, 1:42 PM

I know Diana's library is an incredible example of a makerspace, but that just didn't work for us. We are going to bring back a simpler, more focused version once our remodel is complete. Our high school librarian has set up a monthly maker corner that has been very successful. Projects that can be completed in a lunch period or that allow for collaborative work will be our goal. Diana's tips will help keep us from getting overwhelmed and keep the focus on making!

From virtual reality to online libraries, how technology is revolutionizing education in Grand Rapids

From virtual reality to online libraries, how technology is revolutionizing education in Grand Rapids | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

"From virtual online classrooms built by such companies as Microsoft and Switch to the massive open online courses from providers like edX, Coursera and Udemy, and even distance learning programs facilitated by our own brick-and-mortar universities, the walls of modern classrooms are often anything but metaphor. While the blackboard may remain the same--although it comes in white and clear versions now, too--the substance of technology education has been significantly redesigned by the capabilities of the technology being used to educate.

"Some classrooms have integrated iPads, Chromebooks, and even makerspaces (essentially community spaces with tools) for years now, while others are just beginning to take advantage of such innovations. With updated equipment, new software and access to a library of online resources, the Grand Rapids Public Schools district is looking forward to added gains in learning this year. Explorative spaces installed at Grand Valley State University will help older students test and build the devices that tomorrow's learning environments may rely on.

"[Grand Rapids Public Schools] is currently responsible for some of the most innovative learning centers in the country. Under the superintendency of Teresa Weatherall Neal, the school district has grown up and out. The district's Innovation Central High School is anchored by its four distinct academies of modern engineering, health sciences and technology, design and construction, and business leadership and entrepreneurship, each an example of innovative technologies and techniques."

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

A well-reported article detailing numerous efforts underway in Grand Rapids, Michigan to integrate technology seamlessly into the local educational ecosystem and culture. If you're looking for a model where things seem as though they're being done with foresight and community spirit, this is a good place to start.

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.

Dave Parker on Code Schools

Dave Parker on Code Schools | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Code schools, while having an early impact, have two significant challenges. The early impact can be tracked in two categories: reporting (placement rates and starting salaries) and challenges (accessibility and sustainability).

Reporting, or I should call it industry self-reporting, needs to start before federal regulators request it. We’ve been working with an industry group to lead how the top programs report on industry placement rates.

Placement rates are easy when schools start; you can help nearly all of your students get jobs. Over time, as that number grows, the law of large numbers will impact percentages. Also, programs like these aren’t for everyone. Even with a freshly minted set of technical skills, people who are socially awkward will still have significant challenges getting a job. The work of getting a job is still work. Also, middle-aged white guys, a category I am part of, still find it difficult to find work in a market that favors youth.

Starting salary is also a measure of program outcomes. No employer wants to hire junior talent. But access to talent is a huge challenge which means they do hire junior talent anyway. In hot hiring markets this continues to be true. It will be interesting to see the outcomes over time and in smaller markets that may favor startups versus large company hiring.

As for accessibility and sustainability, the industry has a challenge in that it’s still expensive and people who would want to pursue careers in tech are limited, given current funding mechanics. This is especially true for women, underserved minorities and veterans.
