Windows 8, What Does This Mean for Schools? - MicroK12 Blog

Windows 8, What Does This Mean for Schools? - MicroK12 Blog | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Last week Microsoft released the new Windows 8 Operating System. What we have seen so far is quite a break from how they have done things in the past, getting rid of the Start menu and implementing Metro – a re-imagining of what Windows will be going forward with. There are lots of implications about what this all means going forward. They are supporting multiple form factors from traditional desktops and laptops to tablets as well as the more modern and power efficient ARM processor architectures. What does this mean for schools?

The Teacher’s Guide To Digital Citizenship

The Teacher’s Guide To Digital Citizenship | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Digital citizenship is important to understand for today's students, staff, and teachers. Microsoft has just unveiled a free curriculum that gives great tips and ideas on teaching digital citizenship and creative content.

This looks like a great resource. It is designed for students in Grades 8 - 10, but the site suggests that you may also use it with Grades 6 & 7. There are four units. Each provides student learning objectives. The units are:

* Unit One: Creative What? - Exploring the general topics of  "intellectual property, creative content and creative rights" with a focus on intellectual property and creative content.

* Unit Two: By Rule of Law - A more in-depth look at creative content copyright.

* Unit Three: Calling All Digital Citizens - Using social media as the backdrop a look at "how does the prevalence of online media — and its ease of access — change the conversation about those rights?"

* Unit Four: Protect Your Work, Respect Your Work - How do you protect your creative work? This unit looks at this issue as well as other "issues related to originality and plagiarism."

Classroom Games - Microsoft Office Games

Classroom Games - Microsoft Office Games | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

The University of North Carolina Wilmington’s Ed Games website hosts a variety of free, downloadable...
- PowerPoint,
- Word, and
- Excel games
...that are really easy to use on an IWB to add quizzes and to motivate your learners.

 

Practitioners can customise these games with their own content and once customised, can be...
- saved (for future use) and
- shared with colleagues.

 

Note: Some games are ready to use without modification. Many of the games replicate popular TV shows like Jeopardy, and Pyramid.

 

P.S. How about setting learners a challenge to customise a game?
