New Class Roles: Building Environments of Cooperation

New Class Roles: Building Environments of Cooperation | Technology to Teach | Scoop.it
Create empathy and self-esteem by assigning in-class roles and responsibilities that can help students bring out the best in themselves and each other.
Amy Burns's insight:

Having defined roles for students is a great way to minimize some of the confusion/frustration of "who does what?" during projects and discussions.  The roles could be renamed to better suit older students, as long as the concept of the role remains the same :)

What Some Teens Are Using Instead Of Snapchat And Instagram To Share Pictures In Class - Business Insider

What Some Teens Are Using Instead Of Snapchat And Instagram To Share Pictures In Class - Business Insider | Technology to Teach | Scoop.it

"I went home last week and did everything one normally does over the holidays: I got together with my family and, in the spirit of Christmas, grilled my teenage cousins about what apps they're using on their iPhones.

 

They named two of the usual suspects, Snapchat and Instagram. They laughed in my face when I asked what they thought about Facebook. "It's for moms," one explained to me. 

 

Insightful, but not out of the ordinary. Then my 13-year-old cousin asked me if I knew what AirDrop was."

Out of the mouths of babes. In spite of Conserative efforts to promote the “Dumbing Down of America’s Youth’ still they rise.

Lee Hall's curator insight, January 6, 3:10 PM

Children are very useful if you want to find innovative ways to use something.

Larissa Bonthorne's curator insight, January 13, 3:52 AM

Useful for keeping up to date with new social networks used by teenagers.  It is important to do this so that educators and parents can teach students how to best use a social network, whilst also keeping themselves safe.

Shared Mindfulness: Building Supportive Relationships in the Classroom

Shared Mindfulness: Building Supportive Relationships in the Classroom | Technology to Teach | Scoop.it
By pairing students to sit back to back and focus on their breathing, you can help them develop a sense of mutuality and social awareness.
Amy Burns's insight:

I believe if we spent time building a sense of community with each of our classes of students, many issues could be averted, or at least minimized.  How often have our kids not known even the first name of the student seated next to them?
