Γιατί τα παιδιά μας βαριούνται τόσο στο σχολείο, δε μπορούν να περιμένουν, απογοητεύονται εύκολα και δεν έχουν πραγματικούς φίλους; 

Γιατί τα παιδιά μας βαριούνται τόσο στο σχολείο, δε μπορούν να περιμένουν, απογοητεύονται εύκολα και δεν έχουν πραγματικούς φίλους;  | Tools and sites to create educational games, quizzes | Scoop.it

Πριν από λίγο καιρό διάβασα ένα πολύ καλό άρθρο που εξηγεί ένα φαινόμενο που βιώνουμε όλοι στις τάξεις μας και με τα χρόνια γίνεται όλο και πιο έντονο. Έτσι αποφάσισα να το μεταφράσω και να το αναρτήσω εδώ πιστεύοντας ότι κάποιοι θα βοηθηθούν διαβάζοντας το. Αν μη τι άλλο, για μας τους εκπαιδευτικούς είναι παρηγορητικό να γνωρίζουμε ότι δεν ευθυνόμαστε μόνο εμείς και η καλοκαιρινή μας άδεια για όλα τα δεινά του κόσμου… (Ιωάννα Φωτοπούλου)

Questions to Ask Oneself While Designing Learning Activities | Design | Learning To Learn | Tools and sites to create educational games, quizzes | Scoop.it

Jackie GERSTEIN: I absolutely love planning lessons from scratch.  I just got a job teaching technology units for a summer camp for elementary age students. I can design and teach whatever I want – planning for a different theme each week. Some of the themes I am planning are: Expanding and Showing Your Personal Interests Through Blogging, Photos, and Videos; Coding and Creating Online Games; Tinkering and Making – Simple Robotics; Hacking Your Notebook; and Creating Online Comics, Newspapers, and Magazines.  I have begun the process of planning these classes through reflecting on what the lessons will look like.

Learning to Go: Lesson Ideas for Teaching with Mobile Devices, Cell Phones, and BYOT

Learning to Go: Lesson Ideas for Teaching with Mobile Devices, Cell Phones, and BYOT | Tools and sites to create educational games, quizzes | Scoop.it
Every day, people around the world communicate, connect, and learn digitally on the go. Our students spend hours with their devices and digital tools. Imagine if some of that time was spent learning your content. Imagine your students learning by creating, playing, translating, editing, curating, researching, and brainstorming digitally on cell phones, mobile devices, laptops, tablets, iPads, Chromebooks, and consoles. Learning to Go is a collection of lesson plans, resources, handouts, and tips for teachers wishing to incorporate mobile devices, cell phones or BYOT (Bring Your Own Technology) into their teaching. This book offers suggestions for adapting your curriculum even if your students have little access to technology or you are new to technology integration. This is a practical and useful guide with a unique design to inspire you to explore the possibilities of digital learning with a click or touch. There are no page numbers so that you are encouraged to choose your learning path and lesson plans. Find printer-friendly handouts and rubrics or access the originals to edit and adapt to meet your needs. In addition, this book has the following features to help guide and support you throughout your journey: The Content Map allows you more freedom than a Table of Contents. Click or touch to explore the lessons, resources, apps, and handouts. The Navigation bars at the bottom of the pages allow you to quickly get to the resources and apps you need when planning or conducting a lesson. The internal and external links within the lesson plans help you to easily and quickly find free web tools and apps and access the handouts. The Apps guide divides recommended apps into 8 categories and lists and describes free apps suitable for various devices and ages (toddlers to adults). The Resources section is filled with handouts, storyboards, evaluation forms, and rubrics. The Materials folder is filled with all the rubrics and handouts for you to edit and print. The Materials folder also contains screenshots (pngs) of the evaluation forms, storyboards, and handouts for students to quickly upload to an app, complete, and turn in digitally. Implementing mobile learning is already tough, but I hope this book’s design, features, tips, and resources ease your journey and motivate you to explore the possibilities.
