Months after he was born, in 1948, Ron McCallum became blind. In this charming, moving talk, he shows how he is able to read -- and celebrates the progression of clever tools and adaptive computer technologies that make it possible. With their help, and that of generous volunteers, he's become a lawyer, an academic, and, most of all, a voracious reader. Welcome to the blind reading revolution. (Filmed at TEDxSydney.)

Adobe Voice: A Powerful Storytelling App - Class Tech Tips

Adobe Voice: A Powerful Storytelling App - Class Tech Tips | Web Enhanced Language Learning | Scoop.it

#"Storytelling is a powerful way to inspire students, build community and give children a voice.  There are a few great apps that help students of all ages write and tell their own stories (Shadow Puppet, Toontastic) and a new app that I absolutely love is Adobe Voice.  This free iPad app is very user friendly and makes the storytelling process simple for children young and old.  Kids can add pictures, text, and even choose from different icons to bring their stories to life.  Adobe Voice has an easy recording feature for students to add their voice as narration.  There is a music library and a selection of themes for users to pick out and include in their final product."

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy

The Maker Movement and the Rebirth of Constructionism - Hybrid Pedagogy | Web Enhanced Language Learning | Scoop.it
The culmination of my quest for more powerful learning grounded in theory and research came when recently I conducted an experiment in pushing constructionism into the digital age.

 

Constructionism is based on two types of construction. First, it asserts that learning is an active process, in which people actively construct knowledge from their experience in the world. People don’t get ideas; they make them. This aspect of construction comes from the constructivist theory of knowledge development by Jean Piaget. To Piaget’s concept, Papert added another type of construction, arguing that people construct new knowledge with particular effectiveness when they are engaged in constructing personally meaningful products.

Imagine my surprise and joy when I realized that I had arrived at constructionism prior to knowing that such a theory even existed. I believe that thousands of other educators are unknowingly working within the constructionist paradigm as well. Although many within the Maker movement are aware that it has it’s roots in constructionism, the movement is gaining impressive momentum without the majority of Makers realizing that there is a strong theoretical foundation behind their work.

 

After I came to understand this connection between my practices and the supporting theoretical framework I was better able to focus and refine my practice. Even more importantly, I felt more confident and powerful in forging ahead with further experiments in the learning situations I design for my learners.

iPad Apps and Other Resources to Teach Students about Mandela's Life ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

iPad Apps and Other Resources to Teach Students about Mandela's Life ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Web Enhanced Language Learning | Scoop.it

"One of the most iconic freedom fighter has just left us a couple of days ago leaving behind him a huge legacy for next generations to learn from. Nelson Mandella's life was a genuine fight for human rights and justice and it was thanks to his civil activism that apartheid was abolished in South Africa. The fight for freedom cost Nelson so dearly, 27 years of his life was spent in prison. The lessons we can draw from  Nelson's eventful life experiences are inestimable and here are some of the teaching resources I have curated fro you to help yu teach your students about this legendary man."

February, African-American History Month, would be a great time to implement these resources for teaching students about this iconic human rights activist. 

andrew mulinge's curator insight, December 9, 2013 3:37 AM

This caught my attention because of the icon associated with the title --- Nelson Mandela. A few days ago, my cousin who is a special education teacher in Richmond, posted his frustrations on Facebook about how a student said "Who is Nelson Mandela and why the hell should we care"? My cousin found this quite disturbing but at the same time, he used it as a teaching moment for him and the student. 

 

At my middle school, every student has an ipad that they use daily. The usage of the ipad vary from warm-up activities to homework assignments. Students of this generation coincide more and more with technological innovations like the ipad. This particular app celebrating Nelson Mandela is another example of how learning can can be done through apps in exchange for books. Students love to play games and love to use their ipads. Incorporating critical information in the apps not only allow the student to learn a great deal but it's also fun. I would suggest that my cousin consider using different techniques through the internet to teach students like that about Madiba.
