Have you seen an RSA Animate video? Are you interested in learning how to make one or better yet, have your students make one? This post provides an in-depth look at how to go about have your students create an animated video that provides them with the opportunity to  practice 21st century skills (quoted from post below):

* collaborate with one another

* synthesize ideas

* create content

* communicate ideas clearly

* use technology

This activity is designed to have your students create content, providing you with materials to use in future classes as well as helping your current students understand the materiial.

The author, Jordan Collier, provides a detailed five-day plan. Day 1 would have you dividing students into groups of three, assign them a section of a chapter in a textbook, and determine the key facts that need to be taught. To read about how to assist them with this and the tasks for Day 2 - 5 click through to the post.

Technology and principles in language teaching: Andrew Walkley

Technology and principles in language teaching: Andrew Walkley | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

Shona Whyte:

Hugh Dellar gives ELT Heinle co-author Andrew Walkley space to expand on his IATEFL 2012 presentation on technology in language teaching.  The overal thrust is to question blind assumptions about teaching and technology: 

 

Impoverished acquisitional/pedagogical models

- "the vast bulk of new technologies for ELT are based on OLD – and I would argue discredited – theories of language. Many of the sites recommended by gatekeepers such as Russell Stannard and Nik Peachey focus very much on grammar rules and lists of single words and their meanings."  Walkley rejects this restricted view of language learning/teaching as "grammar rules + words + skills."

 

Overestimation of technology's power to motivate

- "We’re frequently told we’re teaching screenagers, but our students are only screenagers when using facebook to sort out a meet-up with friends or to post comments on recently uploaded photos."  Our younger learners are not so tech-savvy or pro-tech as older teachers may fear.

 

Unhealthy obsession with technology among some teachers

- "Don’t let workaholics be our role models."  Technology is time-consuming for teachers, but pro-tech teachers don't mind giving up a great deal of spare time for it.

 

Technological versus pedagogical interactivity

- "Far too often, in classes I observe, IWBs are simply used as giant held-up coursebooks, as another form of crowd control."

FitCentrix's curator insight, January 27, 2015 2:58 PM

Many people have dismissed "implantables" for fitness and health as futuristic and scary. Clearly sensors will move from the wrist, ankles, chest, etc. to implantable devices that can transmit regularly and receive commands remotely.  The net step is to sync this information with fitness and health knowledge bases that can respond to sensor data and recommend actions.

Annie Paul Murphy writes an intriguing article that looks at what may be happening to students as more and more technology becomes a part of the school day. Check out these two facts.

"One thousand: That’s approximately the number of instructional hours required of U.S. middle school and high school students each year.

Four thousand: That’s approximately the number of hours of digital media content U.S. youths aged 8 to 18 absorb each year." 

Murphy discusses work done by Patricia Greenfield, a developmental psychologist at UCLA. One of her points is that education at school is "formal education" while the time students spend out of school using digital media is "informal education." If this is accurate then would schools be better off having students "read copious amounts of information." 

There is a discussion on how video games build spatial skills and inductive reasoning, and may help "their ability to divide their attention among many things happening at once on the screen" and much more.

This article may make your brain work as you wrap your mind around the information that is shared. If you are looking for an article to discuss with other teachers this might be one to choose.

Three Working Models to Integrate Technology in Your Teaching

Three Working Models to Integrate Technology in Your Teaching | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

"Technology is obviously an essential element in our instructional toolkit. Knowing how and when and for what purposes to use this technology is much more important than the technology itself...

An important step in the process of effective integration of technology in education is having a pedagogical approach supported by a theoretical framework to ground your technology practices inside the classroom."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, May 6, 2014 8:14 PM

Technology is a tool. When to use, how to use it, why you use...these are some of the questions that each of us must consider. To help us effectively integrate technology it is helpful to have a pedogogical background or framework. This post explores three approaches:

* SAMR Model - Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefintion

* TPACK - Content Knowledge, Pedagogical Knowledge, Technological Knowledge and the overlapping knowledges that occur: TP Knowledge which helps us understand how to make content more accessible; TC Knowledge which helps us pair or combine appropriate technology to content; and PC Knowledge which allows us to pair pedagogy with content.

* Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs paired with Technology

This article presents a great overview of all three of these pedagogical approaches, and all have been covered in this Scoop.it so if you are looking for additional information do a search here.

Is your school heading towards a Web 3.0 environment, where teachers will not only be those whom are licensed professionals but also those who are accesible on line from all parts of the worlld?
