9 Big Issues Students Are Grappling With Right Now - Edudemic | TechnologyClassroom | Scoop.it

"Whether this is your first year teaching and you’re right out of school or you’ve been teaching for 30 years, the students sitting in your classroom are facing a different type of classroom than you had as a student. There is more technology, the subject material may vary slightly, but the biggest differences are likely cultural and social."

I've been experimenting with JotNot and it seems to work well. When I get a business card or a stray reciept, I'll zap it with the JotNot.  Very clever.

Excellent Scoop Katie. This looks like a lot of fun.
Sam Burden's curator insight, June 16, 6:22 AM

This online teaching resource reflects a video game known as SimCity, but Plan It Green provides opportunities for participants to construct their own virtual city with creative control. Students can log in via there google accounts to come face-to-face with a very easy tutorial to guide users through the set-up. The game encourages learners to persist via an internal reward system, to reach certain levels of the game. The game can be a collaborative experience as you create and communicate with other communities. This game was developed to have an eco-friendly theme, promoting a sustainable lifestyle, asking students to Plan It Green, leading to valuable educational lessons about energy conservation and the use of alternative solutions which is environmentally friendly.


The game addresses social issues affecting our world, linking to real world issues, making learning relevant to the learner. I would use this game as a tool in my classroom as it is a way students can be facilitators of their own learning, identifying problems and creating solutions in a digital format but they can also be applied in a real world context, reaffirming technology and sustainability curriculum outcomes.

Take the time to download the pdf (available at the site).

 

Paige Jaeger 's curator insight, March 28, 2013 5:52 AM

Video's should enhance instruction, not supplant it.  However, some videos do a better job than teachers do.  Interesting guide and be sure to follow the links.  We like to suggest that videos "activate thinking"  and compel students to come up with further questions.  This is very common core, as the students then would have to "research and investigate" to build knowledge and have an evidence-based discussion!

Tech Tools For Teaching: Key to a Paperless Classroom, the Skitch APP | TechnologyClassroom | Scoop.it

Skitch is a remarkable app that allows students to annotate over images.  I am currently working daily with Bree Campbell , @breeanneshay, at Bellevue East to implement iPads in her English classroom.  We used Skitch in the classroom to it’s fullest potential in our effort to create a paperless classroom and a learning environment that is ubiquitous, not device dependent.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 28, 2013 8:54 PM

Do you have teachers in your building at all levels of technology? This post may help you come up with some ideas for professional development. The first suggestions on the list of thirty-six is:

* Select the right platform to communicate.

Several others include:

* Explain how and why to use technology to those who don’t use it.

* Model digital citizenship.

* Highlight the limits of technology.

* Record, process, mash, publish, and distribute digital media.

For many other suggetions (and additional resources) continue on to the post.
