Leveraging Device Diversity to Create the Best Projects Possible

Leveraging Device Diversity to Create the Best Projects Possible | Technology in Education | Scoop.it

Every device has its limitations (iPads & Adobe Flash). But they also have their strengths (Android’s OS flexibility). You may have heard of ‘app smashing,’ but how about ‘device smashing?’ How are students (& teachers) in a collaborative environment able to best use each device’s strengths to their advantage?

I love this post and its 21st Century implications.  Yes, the old wooded or even newer plastic, solo student desks are becoming a relic of the past.  With collaborative learning environments, mobile learning, project based learning, etc. those neat little rows of desks lined up in single file are a thing of the past.  However, if you're stumped on a practical alternative, I remain a fan of the harkness table that has a long, successful independent school history.  Here is a link if you're not familiar with the harkness table:

Mini Metric Olympics

Students in Grade 4 are studying metric measurement in math class with Mrs. Tappert and Mrs. Finlay. Yesterday afternoon, they participated in the Mini Metric Olympics.

 

Students rotated through seven stations where they completed a task and estimated and measured results in metric units. Stations were: Cotton Ball Shot Put, Marble Grab, Sponge Squeeze, Big Foot, Crab Crawl, Paper Plate Discus and Straw Javelin Throw. What a great hands-on way to learn math! Enjoy this slideshow of the afternoon!

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.
