16 Habits of Mind Essential for 21st Century Learners ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Technology to Teach | Scoop.it

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, January 25, 11:09 PM

I remember doing Habits of Mind in my first year of teaching with Year 7. I also taught the same class English, RE and S&E, and we would constantly make links across each of the Habits as we went through the day. For instance, 'are you taking a responsible risk?' 'Have you gathered data through all senses?' The students could see how these Habits were helpful, and I was able to develop a strong teaching vocabulary that would model and assist students (and myself) in metacognition.

What does an engaged student look like? - Daily Genius

What does an engaged student look like? - Daily Genius | Technology to Teach | Scoop.it

"Teachers want their students to learn, but they also want them to be interested in learning and excited about learning, which will ameliorate both the experience and the process. If you’ve ever tried getting students excited about subject material that is less than exciting, you know this isn’t always easy.

There are a lot of different factors that come together to make a student successful – and the combination varies from student to student. Some rely on natural ability, some rely on the success of their peers to motivate them, others need a huge teacher-parent-peer support system to make any academic success happen. That said, nearly every student can be successful – at least to some degree- if they’re engaged."

Five Minute Film Festival: Video Boot Camp

Five Minute Film Festival: Video Boot Camp | Technology to Teach | Scoop.it
The rapid adoption of devices in the classroom has fundamentally changed the way we can create video. Every part of the creation process -- writing, recording, editing, and distributing -- is possible on the devices that can fit in our pocket. Vision is the most dominant of the five senses. Research shows that concepts are better remembered if they are taught visually. This is called the pictorial superiority effect, and it’s why video is such a powerful learning tool. A video is created three times: when you write it, when you shoot it, and when you edit it. There are several formats that can be used to write a script for the classroom: a Google Doc, a dedicated app (ex: Storyboards), a Google Form, or a production organization document. Whichever format is used, emphasis should be placed on how it will be used in the classroom, and what the goal of the video is. When recording, it is important to incorporate basic rules of composition, such as the rule of thirds, into your video. Being aware of the environment (basic concepts like lighting and room tone) makes it easier to edit. Curating content is another significant way to incorporate video into your classroom. If you don’t have the time or software to make a fancy video, odds are someone has already made it and shared it on YouTube. This Film Festival is equal parts curation and creation.
Amy Burns's insight:

Fantastic collection of resources for film making!
