Success Starts at the Top: Supporting a Mobile Learning Initiative | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Administrative support is the most important factor of a school's success with any program. School heads, leaders, department heads, business officers, and other decision makers will want to attend this session, discussing the do's and don'ts of implementing mobile devices. Spanning across all aspects involved, topics discussed will include technical requirements and best practices, professional development, BYOD vs school-owned, public relations, parental involvement, student preparedness, and much more.

The combination of his education degree and network engineering certifications allows him to drive both sides of what makes technology integration successful.

A FlipClass Welcome

Back-to-School Night Welcome Message: The Flipped Classroom
more...
Drora Arussy's curator insight, July 29, 2013 4:41 AM

Another wonderful example of a use of the flipped classroom - calculus. By allowing for some lectures to be done on an individual basis while students may repeat, slow down, speed up, pause, review, respond and all that while the teacher is free to work individually with students, incrate th larning t h next level, help facilitate their discussions and intersts. The transfer to language study is so evident- imagine not spending hours in the classroom reteaching the grammar topics in foreign language, but instead answering individual pointed questions and facilitating conversations that incorporate those concepts. many of us went the route of no grammar only to see many students need it, particularly the older students. A flipped classroom allows for the possibility of individual progress while not stopping a whole class.

For those using this in history - flipping must free up time and mind space for collaborative thought and projects and some wonderful discussions!

Ness Crouch's curator insight, July 29, 2013 4:54 AM

On incorporating technology in the classroom

Hannah Roukas's curator insight, October 22, 2013 7:55 AM

This post was short but to the point.  Technology should be one of the subjects kids learn in school, it should be used to help kids develop ideas.  Teachers should use technology to keep lessons interesting so kids don't fall asleep or become uninteresting.

Rachel Solomon's curator insight, December 3, 2013 1:45 PM

I think this is a really good article because it is written by a teacher, and he explains certain pieces of technology that "changed his teaching practice." This article could be very helpful to current teachers, as well as aspiring ones. Technology is very important now in our society and is becoming increasingly important in the classroom. It is important for teachers to know how to utilize all of these different pieces of technology.

There's a lot of lists out there, but what I like about this one is that it gives you a lot of food for thought on the lack of usefulness of some tools.
