- 170 Ways To Use Word Clouds In Every Classroom | Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

by Michael Gorman

 

"Once again, I am amazed every time I talk to groups and find out so many educators have not used word clouds with their students. In fact, I am so sure that you will enjoy this topic I have now up to 170 ways to use word clouds in the classroom. I have tried to include almost every subject. These are a collection of ideas shared with me, various readings, and a lot of my own brainstorming.

 

"This is an update I promised from my previous 125 ways to use word clouds. I know this will be an article you wish to share with others. In order to better understand some of the advanced uses I suggest you may wish to read a past posts entitled, 12 Valuable Wordle Tips You Must Read. I am certain you will find at least one new idea… and again please give a retweet.  Please note that if you wish two words to stay together in a word cloud using Wordle, just put a tilde between them.

Great Tutorial on How to Create your Own eBook on iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Great Tutorial on How to Create your Own eBook on iPad ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"Creating an eBook online is no rocket science and anyone with the rudimentary knowledge of how to use internet can get his/her eBook up and viral in a couple of minutes provided the content part of it is already written in a word document. I find the typing and editing part the most  difficult stage in this process;  however, if you just want to set up a short ebook for your students then that would not take you much time.


Just a couple of weeks ago I shared here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning a list of great apps  to use to create eBooks on iPad and I received several emails following that post and some of you asked for tutorials on this topic. Here is one of my favorite tutorials on how to create an eBook on iPad that I always recommend to my fellow teachers. Check it out below and share with us what you think of it. Enjoy"

There are various ways to use technology in the classroom, but how long does it take to prepare lessons through technology? They say "Don't take your work home" because it can seriously affect one's family and home-life, but is there enough time in the day to prepare effective lessons without taking your job home? Teachers are not paid enough to create their own lesson plans using technology - let along to teach, with all of the constant changing standards!

A Teacher's BYOT Handbook: 10 Checklists For Creating Your Plan | TeachThought

A Teacher's BYOT Handbook: 10 Checklists For Creating Your Plan | TeachThought | Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"A few weeks ago, we shared 11 sample BYOT policies http://bit.ly/19pF4WW to help you create your own.

 

Unlike some learning tools, BYOT resources have to be diverse because of the inherently flexible nature of BYOT. What works for one school or district may not for another.

 

Another challenge for educators looking for BYOT “stuff” is that what you’re finding is likely scattered all over the internet. Which makes the handbook of BYOT “stuff” that convergemag.com created (and grabonlee is hosting) all the more helpful. In it you’ll find 10 checklists for creating–or simply checking–your BYOT plan, covering the following topics."

How To Address Negative Student Behavior in 1:1 Classrooms - Edudemic

How To Address Negative Student Behavior in 1:1 Classrooms - Edudemic | Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"I strongly believe that technology is going to completely revolutionize the classroom. But when are we going to start addressing the negative aspects of the one-to-one classroom? When are we going to acknowledge the fact that just because every student has a device it does not mean that they will get a 36 on the ACT? I have seen videos of babies that can play with an iPad, but that does not mean that high school students intuitively know how to use one to effectively collaborate and communicate in the classroom.

 

Let’s be honest: using technology in the classroom can be harder than teaching the ‘old way’."

Then I could go back and read all of my notes about revolution by just searching for that hashtag."

Cyndi Danner-Kuhn's curator insight, June 25, 2013 6:47 AM

The role of technology in learning isn’t entirely clear–or rather, is subjective.

While it clearly is able to provide access to peers, audiences, resources, and data, it also can be awkward, problematic, distracting, performing more strongly as a barrier to understand than anything else.

Why this happens also isn’t clear, but there are some common patterns and missteps to look for while designing or evaluating a learning process.

15 Mistakes You’re Probably Making With Technology In Learning

5 Levels Of Technology Integration In Curriculum - TeachThought

5 Levels Of Technology Integration In Curriculum - TeachThought | Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"

"The integration of technology in learning is not new. In the 1980s, many schools had fancy calculators, Macintosh computers, and were even teaching students basic coding.

 

This kind of integration often happened at the lesson or activity level, meaning that it was often surface-level, tacked-on, and perhaps a bit superficial.

 

The power of technology is difficult to fully leverage without curriculum-level integration. This means choosing tools, platforms, and policies based on standards, assessment, and instruction. A side benefit to this approach is the possibility of teacher collaboration and “same-pageness.”"
