Are You A Tech-Savvy Teacher, This Infographic Will Tell You | TechFaster

Are You A Tech-Savvy Teacher, This Infographic Will Tell You | TechFaster | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
Through the course of our “summer school” here at Techfaster we’ve met plenty of tech savvy educators. From ISTE in early July to the NAESP show and Campus Tech that wrapped up this week, teachers, administrators and education enthusiasts were learning, sharing, and networking with each other. These are definitely the tech savvy teacher type, and that’s validated in the infographic below from Daily Genius. But just because you spent part of the summer at EdTech conferences doesn’t necessarily mean you are a tech savvy teacher. Of course the reverse is true as well, maybe you had family events and your own kids to tend to during the summer. Are you a tech savvy teacher? A strong indicator would be that you’re even reading this article here at techfaster.com. Are you keeping your students, parents, fellow teachers and administrators up to date with the goings on in your classroom with your own blog? That’s a good sign you’re a tech savvy teacher. Just think about what the communication you can have with a blog, would have been like in the days of the ditto machine? You would have to plan out your thoughts, outline them, create a ditto original, print them, pass them out to students, and just pray they didn’t end up on the floor of the school bus. Are you networking with other teachers you’ve never met on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest or a knowledge sharing educational site? Are you regularly attending edtech chat or listening to podcasts? All of these are signs that you care about your own professional development, living in current times and caring about your students. YouTube, Twitter, SnapChat, Minecraft, Instagram, and Vine are all a part of your students lives. Facebook, Pinterest and email are all a part of your students’ parents’ lives. You’re almost too far behind if you’re not a “tech savvy” teacher. Check out the infographic below and see how you stack up.

How to Integrate Tech When It Keeps Changing

How to Integrate Tech When It Keeps Changing | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Asking if technology enhances learning is like asking if dogs are playful. Whether we're discussing tech or those furry mouth-breathers, the answer is the same: it depends on the situation. Here's a better line of inquiry: how do you coordinate knowledge, instructional practices, and technologies in order to positively influence academic achievement?

We can begin to answer this question with the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge Framework (TPACK), which conceptualizes the integration of "Pedagogical Content Knowledge (PCK), Technological Content Knowledge (TCK), Technological Pedagogical Knowledge (TPK), and the intersection of all three," explains Dr. Matthew Koehler, editor of tpack.org. Watch (and feel free to share) the "TPACK in 2 Minutes" video below:

The Difference Between Technology Use And Technology Integration

The Difference Between Technology Use And Technology Integration | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

"Using technology for learning makes sense. Technology creates access, transparency, and opportunity. Any smartphone or tablet is media incarnate–video, animation, eBooks, essays, blog posts, messages, music, games. The modalities of light, color, and sound all arranged just so to communicate a message or create an experience."

En utilisant les TIC, d'abord c'est un moyen pédagogique. Puis cela change la manière de donner cours, et on a alors intégré la technologie.

4 Keys to Designing the Classroom of the Future

4 Keys to Designing the Classroom of the Future | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

"Designing the classroom of the future is no easy task, mostly because it's difficult to know what the future will look like. As little as five years ago, few could have predicted the ubiquity of tablets and their accompanying need for more and more WiFi capabilities. Even the maker movement's reliance on "creative spaces" is a relatively new phenomenon. "

Very relevant to the classrooms I work in.  The lay out and revised ways to integrate new technology to meet the students where they are.

Google Classroom opens its doors to all teachers today.

Google Classroom opens its doors to all teachers today. | Technology in Education | Scoop.it
As of now Google Classroom is available to all Google Apps for Education
(GAFE) users.

Classroom is a tool within the GAFE that allows teachers to set up
different classes, set projects, assign homework to groups and grade them
all within a single space.  Classroom also records student grades and
progress.  It should be a worthwhile assessment tool once you have begun
using it with your students for a couple of months.

Remember, what you are using at the moment is essentially Classroom 1.0 and
as such it is quite limited in it's functionality and flexibility, but so
was everything in Google Apps when it was first released and Google have
certainly demonstrated a commitment to upgrade and enhance their products
continually.

It will take you all of about 2 minutes to set up your class and get
cooking so all I can suggest is give it a shot and see where it takes you.
 You certainly won't be wasting your time fro my brief encounter with it so
far.

Here are a couple of resources and links to get you started and I'd love to
hear about your experiences thus far.

After getting my feet wet in this class I somewhat have an understanding of how important social media is becoming in classrooms. It makes for a very easy familiar way of communicating with classmates as well as instructors.

This is a critical need area for all, not just school.

Overcoming the Motivation Challenge in eLearning: 5 Things You Can Do

Overcoming the Motivation Challenge in eLearning: 5 Things You Can Do | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

"Motivation in eLearning can best be described with a U-shaped curve: novelty and enthusiasm produce high drive at the beginning, but it drops off sharply thereafter, only increasing when the end of the course is in sight. It is up to you to boost and maintain your students' motivation throughout the course, so that they will get the most out of it. Unless they have the motivation to focus and sit through the entire course, they learn nothing at all."

5 Reasons E-Learning Will Radically Change the Education System

5 Reasons E-Learning Will Radically Change the Education System | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

"Education is essential to helping the world progress, both technologically and socially. Unfortunately for many, access to education is not always readily available. There are many theories about how education can be improved but the ability to broadcast and disseminate knowledge is one of the easiest steps we can incorporate to enhance the standards of global education."
