How to Move from First Person to Learner Centered Teaching (EdSurge News) | TechTeacher | Scoop.it
The problem is that a teacher-centered perspective does little to reveal whether students are learning, and it misses opportunities to help them learn more. As Herbert Simon, the late Nobel laureate who inspired much of the work in the field of learning science, famously said, “Learning results from what the student does and thinks and only from what the student does and thinks.”

10 Lesson Plans to Develop Digital Literacies | TechTeacher | Scoop.it

Over the last few months I have been working hard to develop a set of commercially available lesson materials. These lesson plans aren't specifically designed for English language learners, though they will be useful for students at higher levels who want stimulating skills based practice or for any teacher interested in developing a CLIL or content based approach to language learning. They were designed to enable any teacher to develop students in a way that is more closely aligned to the kinds of skills they will need to function effectively and critically in the digital world.

Jennifer Hincapie's curator insight, May 4, 7:59 PM
Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK) is a framework that identifies the knowledge teachers need to teach effectively with technology.The TPACK framework extends Shulman’s idea of Pedagogical Content Knowledge.

The TPACK framework is highly important as teachers in dvelopment, since we should not only master the content of the topics being taught, but also how it best suits the learners' needs, and how  they will be able to understand it in a simple manner, and once these two elements have been mastered, it is needed to reflect upon the impact of thecnology in the learning and teaching processes. So, in this article we will find information about the TPACK model and its impact in the processes of teching and learning.

Moreover, the author shows us hoe to build the teachers' confidence in the use of technology, and some tips to best enhance its development in the classroom

How Metacognition Makes Students Better Learners

How Metacognition Makes Students Better Learners | TechTeacher | Scoop.it
When students learn to reflect meaningfully about their learning, they can participate in a dialogue with the teacher that allows them to work together to determine the actual level of mastery. No longer working in isolation, the teacher can now adequately discuss depth of learning, thereby helping students to communicate particular knowledge that is too often absent from their final products. After students provide the teacher with thorough information about their process, the teacher is in a better position to assess student learning.

Having devices in your classroom for students to use, whether you have carts of computers, iPads, or Chromebooks; a 1:1 program; or a BYOD initiative, can be exciting and overwhelming at the same time. Using these devices to provide content support and differentiation for each student is not hard to do. You have long been supplying material for your students at all levels to both remediate and expand their knowledge base. But what about designing formative and summative assessments that use technology and target higher-order thinking skills? Teachers should ask themselves this question, as well as how to develop tasks that transform what goes on in the classroom.
