How can a writer use Scoop.It!

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

This is a great review of Scoopit pros and cons. I like using Scoopit. I read, review and collect information I feel is important to follow or to share. So far this stays on the pages I curate at scoopit and I can return easily again and again if I want to refer to them again, I can also find articles others thought worthy of curating and sharing on their pages. I encourage my students to follow their passion and interest through curating as well.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Here is simple technology for inspiring students to become imaginative ,empathic,thinkers. Play the lyrics to a song then allow them to think about it. 

 

Excerpt:

“The fillip for us is twofold,” McCutcheon explains, “As an Educate Together school, we teach the children an ethical curriculum. We want the children to become more sophisticated in the way they think about moral issues but we don’t want to appeal to any particular domination because we are a non-denominational school."

 

“The other appeal is under the citizenship remit and developing the ‘children’s voice’. You can set up student councils, and so on, but what’s most important is ensuring the teachers’ moral pedagogy over the course of the day is one that promotes children’s voice.”

NetAppVoice: Kids Can't Compute -- And That's A Problem

NetAppVoice: Kids Can't Compute -- And That's A Problem | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Kids are "digital natives." They grew up using computers, and therefore are more "tech savvy" than older people. Right? No! Well, the first part's right, but the second part is increasingly wrong.

Via Beth Dichter
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

More and more tech articles are appearing about the need for students to have more and more skills in learning code (the language of the computer). This article hits on some points about why this new language of coding needs to be taught to everyone at a young age ....This might be good idea, but what do you think?

 

Excerpt:

(And This Will Be A Growing Problem
"The overwhelming quantity and user-friendliness of today’s apps and web-based services isn’t stretching users. It’s not confronting people with the need to understand computing, or to be creative in building solutions.")

 

Why does this matter? How good is it if the only thing you can choose from is what someone else let's you have because you don't know how to get it for yourself?

 

Haven't we had enough of that....Most of us can't make clothes much less the fabric and would starve to death if a grocery wasn't on the corner? Making your own music too often means mixing someone else's on a computer or just tuning into music. Everything we allow to be delivered to us is more apt to manipulate us then we are to manipulate it. We are then totally dependent on someone other then ourselves to provide answers for our problems and  accommodate our desires and that's what makes learning this code language all the more important.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, November 16, 2013 10:02 PM

This post looks at how people of different generations approach computers. It raises the question "Why do people think students are computer geniuses?" and states "The most computer-savvy demographic is now probably aged 25–55." 

Is this because the early computers did not have apps and had to learn how to work with a machine and trouble shoot it (and were able to do this on many levels).In other words, you were able to get "under the hood."

What is the impact of this? Read on to learn more and see if you agree with this issue.

Abi Mawhirt's curator insight, November 17, 2013 9:36 AM

Issues with 'digital natives' adapting technology skills for learning, or for anything other than 'me time'. Will 'me time' on our devices change if none of us have research skills and rely on serendipity alone?

Robert Gagne - Learning Theorist

I am an education psychologist best known for my "Conditions of Learning" which identified the mental conditions of learning and was published in 1965. I was born in North Andover, Maine in 1916 and died in 2002. I earned my Ph.D. in psychology from Brown University in 1940. I went on to work as a professor for Connecticut College, Penn State University and Florida State University. I also served as Director of the U.S. Air Force Perceptual and Motor Skill Laboratory were I began developing my principles of my learning theory.

 

I am considered to be a major contributor to the systematic approach of instructional design. My learning theory is summarized as The Gagne Assumption and consists of five types of learning (each requires a different type of instruction) and nine events of instruction. I've also identified a hierarchy of eight conditions to learning.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Robert Gagne was a major contributor to the Systems Approach to Training (or ADDIE as this is recently referred to). Understanding his theories will enlightened anyone involved in training development.

Hi Folks!


Many people have been asking me when my TEDx talk will be available and it's finally be posted for viewing.


During the presentation I not only talk a bit about my background and lessons I've learned about storytelling, but I also share a simply story listening process I learned years ago from storyteller Doug Lipman.


I use the process all the time in my work -- because it's so powerful, and because it is at the root of how work gets done, and how making a difference in the world really happens. Anyone can do this process and I encourage you to try it out.


I hope you enjoy this 15 minutes and begin to relate to stories in this way. Happy story listening!

Simple Ways to Cultivate Happiness in Schools

Simple Ways to Cultivate Happiness in Schools | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
In my last post I suggested that equitable schools are those that contribute to happiness in children.

Via Mary Perfitt-Nelson, David Mackzum, Ed.D.
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Where are these ideas in common core general standards? Do the common core standards address success as demonstrating  student, individual or even overall group happiness? Should happiness matter in a post-modern world?

 

This article tells schools, teachers and students to slow down, sing, move, get outside. Do these things really have a place in a school day for the entire school body? These ideas are rather old fashion and low tech. 

 

In these times many students, teachers and even families really have a hard  and often uncomfortable feeling about going outdoors, walking, moving, or simply remaining quiet. More people turn on music and sit and watch sports rather than actually engage physically in these movement activities. Children are discouraged from being outside unless they have a guardian with them. Parents and teachers are afraid to let them out unless they are guarded and who wants to do that on either side for long? So it's easier and allows more freedom to keep them inside and to calm them down allowing them to do something that requires more sitting and often watching others move or doing something through media gadgets…

 

Could doing the things listed here cause people to learn more and work better? How would we fit these into a day or even a week? Do people need to be happy to be successful or does becoming successful make them happy? And what about those that really don't become successful when success is defined by wealth, great jobs, power, possessions and good health? 

 

Excerpt:

Furthermore, when the weather is comfortable, why can't we have some of the many meetings we all have to sit in outside? Last year I took my instructional coaches to the forest for one of our professional development days. In addition to hiking, we read, talked, learned, and wrote -- all of the activities we usually do in our office.

Via Roxana Marachi, PhD
Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

I thought this was interesting. I don't know why there must be charter schools for this if the public wants education to be like this then put it into the system and stamp it approved. If school choice can be done on the public dime through private companies there is no reason it cannot be done publicly just as affordable or even better.

 

I was not able to find out yet if this is truly a public owned charter school or if it is a privately owned school using public funds to run. That makes a difference and brings in all together different discussions to the broader discussions of what a publicly funded education should look like. Should it offer options as to what is cover during the day? Most state school are pretty much forced into certain curriculum to receive public funds.

 

Why should charters be exempt from that? If being exempt makes better curriculum then why are public schools forced to comply at all? I like and fully support what seems to be occurring in the video but totally don't understand why one feels charter schools is the way to deliver this type of instructing to the students. Why not just use this method anyway? I don't think it is the only style of teaching that works well.

 

Traditional "boring ways" also work for some types of personalities or content unless one figures out how to put it to music or rhymes and make what is boring and repetitious more fun to practice. I realize that understanding 4X4 matters, but then it gets to the point where you just want to remember it fast off the top of your head and not analyze it....Then a rhyming song or poem works better for that.
