QR Code Reader for All Devices! - Class Tech Tips | EdTech | Scoop.it

"The App Store is full of QR code readers – most of which are free.  My go-to QR code scanner is i-nigma.  One reason I recommend this app at workshops and conferences is because it can be used on lots of different devices.  If you visittheir homepage you can see links for the Apple App Store, Android Market, BlackBerry App World and WindowsPhone Marketplace.  

 

This means that i-nigma is perfect for schools rolling out a BYOD (bring your own device) program.  It’s also great for teachers recommending a QR reader app to parents so that they’ll be able to read the information posted on a QR code attached to a newsletter or homework assignment."

Why (And How) To Start Teaching Coding In School - Edudemic

Why (And How) To Start Teaching Coding In School - Edudemic | EdTech | Scoop.it

"Fueled by an incredible demand in the workforce for proficient programmers and the need to teach critical thinking skills, the coding movement in schools has exploded. Furthermore, we all communicate through technology, so we should at least know the basic premise of coding because the gadget sitting in our pocket, or on our desk, should not be a mysterious black box to us or our students. Just like writing, multimedia, art, and music are mediums to show ideas, coding can be another form of expression.``

One thing that would be helpful is not to force digital technologies on good teachers. They need support and it can be provided by providing them with opportunities to plan their professional development. They other thing that is important is do not assume that resistance is being tech shy. I resisted, but am hardly tech shy. What I resisted was the external experts who thought they knew more about my teaching and students than I did.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, June 4, 2014 8:34 PM

Do you use iPads in your school? Do you work with Bloom's Taxonomy and/or SAMR? Are you interested in seeing how you might combine Bloom's and SAMR using specific apps? If so, click through to this post.

The post takes apps and organizes in three categories:

* Consumption - which includes Knowledge and Analysis (split into Activity and Gamification)

* Collaboration - which includes Application and Synthesis (split into Assessment and Cloud Storage)

* Creation - which includes Comprehension and Evaluate (split into Multimedia & Design and Multimedia Texts)

Then read on and see how you might take these same areas and apply them to SAMR (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification and Redefinition).

This is worth a look even if you do not have iPads. The ideas of placing work into the three Cs of Consumption, Collaboration and Creation may be applied to work that students do, with or without technology.

"I focus on the power of the iPad to increase students’ growth and development, self-reliance and independence, with a strong emphasis on study skills. Yes, content is a covered also, and I choose apps accordingly, yet always knowing that this powerful tool needs the guidance of an instructor who is willing to let go.  I wrote this blog quite awhile back, still seems relevant: I Know My Way Around an iPad. Here I discussed the distinction between knowing how to use an iPad and knowing how to teach lessons to a class of students with iPads in hand.

 

Actually teaching a class of students with iPads, is a very different scenario than any other tech integration. As comfortable as I am with technology, it is new territory teaching kids when they have the world at their fingertips and the majority of them are way more tech savvy than you or I will ever will be."

Assessment and Rubrics

Assessment and Rubrics | EdTech | Scoop.it

Assessing Student Learning

Teachers who integrate technology into student activities and projects often ask us this question - “How do I grade it?”

Fundamentally, assessing multimedia activities and projects is no different than evaluating traditional assignments, such as written essays. The primary distinctions between them are the unique features and divergent possibilities associated with their respective medium. For instance, a blog has a unique set of possibilities (such as hypertext, embedded video, interactive imagery, etc) vastly different than those of a notebook (paper and pen notes and drawings within a contained document).

The first thing to realize is that you cannot separate the user from the device. iPads, Chromebooks, and tech tools themselves don’t demonstrate great learning; it’s about what students do with the technology that matters. The technology itself is simply neutral. Consider: would a teacher grade the pen a student used to write an essay? Of course not! They grade what the student writes. It’s what students create with the tool that is at the heart of learning and assessment.

Formative vs. Summative AssessmentPerformance is most often analyzed through formative and summative assessment. Formative assessment is ongoing and provides information needed to adjust teaching and learning for a more effective outcome. It not only helps to monitor student progress throughout an activity, but can also gauge student understanding and readiness to proceed to further tasks. Alternately, summative assessment focuses on a particular point in time, such as a test at the end of a unit or grading term.Regardless, whether the immediate assessment is formative or summative, a teacher needs to be able to distinguish between the capabilities of the tool and the students’ performance using it. To illustrate, anyone can easily produce a visually stunning and captivating video presentation using iMovie as it has built-in easy-to-use professional effects. Therefore, to assess a movie presentation effectively, the teacher needs evidence of the thinking that went into the creation of the movie. Rather than grade the end product, educators must focus on the process -- research, writing, image selection, etc. This allows teachers to focus on learning throughout the whole project rather than the flashy, finished product.Rubrics to Measure Student Learning

Providing detailed explanations of an assignment using an online rubric, created with tools such as Rubistar or Digital Media Scoring Guides, can assist students in both completing tasks and thinking about their performance. Additionally, these tools allow teachers to create rubrics quickly with a greater level of meaningful feedback. They can also easily be shared among teachers and saved or modified for future assignments.

There is a difference in learning and sharing, we can share some things we are not able to learn. As slaves couldn't read words but they taught the ways of their lives required to be lived instead! As grandma would say having all the book sense with no good common sense don't amount to nothing. Knowing how go read a book about how to change a light bulb but having no good common sense on how to perform it makes you a person with plenty of book sense sitting on the dark at night because you don't have the good common sense on how to do what the book said. Grandma and them had a way about telling the truth as it was said if you don't want to know the truth Grandma and them style don't ask them! Learning comes in different ways not all work the same! Don't judge another because they learn differently but always remember 

what doesn't work for you just might work fine for another!
