Engaging with Ebooks Can Aid Children’s Literacy, Study Finds | Technology, Motivation, & Engagement | Scoop.it
As younger and younger children recognize and use electronic devices as sources of information and entertainment, what is the impact on their literacy skills? Largely a positive one, according to a study in the January edition of SAGE Open.

So as this generation of students comes up through school, we will really have to adjust the way they receive information.  We cannot stay stagnant.  We'll lose every student out there.  And I wouldn't blame them.

A Wonderful Visual on How to Use SAMR Model On Different Classroom Tasks ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Wonderful Visual on How to Use SAMR Model On Different Classroom Tasks ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology, Motivation, & Engagement | Scoop.it

"In this quick post I want to share with you this beautiful interactive image on the SAMR model. I learned about this resource from a tweet shared by our colleague David Fife. As you can see from the image below, iPadders provided examples of how to use each classroom task according to the different SAMR categories. And in each category, a set of apps and tools are provided to help you carry out the task under study. I invite you to have a look and share with your colleagues. Enjoy"

Ness Crouch's curator insight, February 23, 6:23 PM

I've heard a lot about SMAR but never really taken the time to look into it. It might be time now that I'm looking at integrating more technology into my classroom. This model clearly supports technology and expects the use of it. 

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, February 27, 6:42 PM

Explains a lot about how digital tech can help, though on investigation this seems to be a model developed seemingly from nowhere without much academic work behind it. Example of a simple model stating the obvious? Does it matter that it's origins are hazy? Having had the chance to look into it and its creator, it's interesting to note how popular it is and how accepted it is, without much critique. Is it really that great a model?! Just wondering! Raises a lot of questions.

Meeting The Professional Development Needs of Teachers

Meeting The Professional Development Needs of Teachers | Technology, Motivation, & Engagement | Scoop.it
Professional Development can be loaded words in Education.

 

At Ed Camps, sessions are posted and the participants are encouraged to attend sessions that look interesting, but to also use the “law of two feet” and leave a session that might not be what was expected and find something that will help, putting teachers in charge of their own learning.

 

Many school districts are experimenting with PD days like this, and using talent from within the School and District to help teach colleagues. We have found sometimes that teacher-presenters like to share, but sometimes also find that their own educational needs are not met during these days.

 

 


Via Gust MEES
Annie M Herbert's insight:

These are wonderful ideas on how to conduct PD. I want to return to the link on EdCamp in one of the comments. I'm going to compare these ideas with what DE is doing for PD and I certainly wish the folks who do the PD I have to attend would encorporate some of these approaches!

Do you know that amphibians are vital to their ecosystems and to humans, but they are threatened with extinction? Dedicated scientists around the world are working to save amphibians, and you can too.

 

Discovery Education and the Siemens STEM Academy invite you to participate in a live event on December 4 at 1PM ET to bring amphibians to your classroom. Join scientists and researchers at the Smithsonian's National Zoological Park in Washington D.C. where your class will be able to see a wide range of amphibians from around the world. Learn what amphibians are, why they are important, the threats they face, and how you can get involved in programs to help save amphibians in your local area.

 

Includes 15 min of Q & A with National Zoo experts about everything amphibian!

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | Technology, Motivation, & Engagement | Scoop.it

"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs.

 

In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves.

 

Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy | Technology, Motivation, & Engagement | Scoop.it
The culmination of my quest for more powerful learning grounded in theory and research came when recently I conducted an experiment in pushing constructionism into the digital age.

 

Constructionism is based on two types of construction. First, it asserts that learning is an active process, in which people actively construct knowledge from their experience in the world. People don’t get ideas; they make them. This aspect of construction comes from the constructivist theory of knowledge development by Jean Piaget. To Piaget’s concept, Papert added another type of construction, arguing that people construct new knowledge with particular effectiveness when they are engaged in constructing personally meaningful products.

Imagine my surprise and joy when I realized that I had arrived at constructionism prior to knowing that such a theory even existed. I believe that thousands of other educators are unknowingly working within the constructionist paradigm as well. Although many within the Maker movement are aware that it has it’s roots in constructionism, the movement is gaining impressive momentum without the majority of Makers realizing that there is a strong theoretical foundation behind their work.

 

After I came to understand this connection between my practices and the supporting theoretical framework I was better able to focus and refine my practice. Even more importantly, I felt more confident and powerful in forging ahead with further experiments in the learning situations I design for my learners.

Education Should Be About Preparing for Tomorrow

Education Should Be About Preparing for Tomorrow | Technology, Motivation, & Engagement | Scoop.it
We need to have higher expectations for ourselves as educators, parents, and policymakers; and we need to have higher expectations for our students -- they will meet the bar wherever it is set.

 

To address this challenge we must revolutionize what we teach, how we teach and how we measure the results. Fundamental and rapid change is necessary -- now, not sometime in the future. Solving our nation's education crisis will take commitment and investment in proven approaches to project-based learning.

 

We have to convert our thinking from maximizing content coverage and "teaching to the test" to using methods that help students understand the applications of what they learn.

 

===> We must help students develop problem solving, critical thinking and collaboration skills -- skills that will prepare them to compete in the global economy. <===

We have to educate in ways today that prepare students and teachers for the world they live now and tomorrow. We seem to lack the will and the leadership. We have talking head syndrome. The best job an educator could have is to be in the classroom, not be a principal.
