IT and Education Are Like Peanut Butter and Jelly

IT and Education Are Like Peanut Butter and Jelly | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
The tech and instructional sides of a school are distinct and unique, but when they work together, they’re an unstoppable combo.
Darlene Clapham K12's insight:

I had to post this article, because I so believe that a partnership between teaching/learning and I.T is critical or a huge contributing factor to the success of an educational institution. In fact, this concept should apply throughout any organization. Technology is now an important ingredient to education, business, health care, government etc...etc.. As a tech professional, I feel fortunate that we do work closely with our teaching/learning & business partners. The more this concept gets engrained deeper into the workplace philosophies, the more success organizations will see. What do you think?

¿Sabíais que el 60% de los padres no ayuda nunca a guiar a sus hijos en Internet ni en las redes sociales? Una encuesta reciente de Australian Psychology Society (Asociación Australiana de Psicología), ha mostrado este dato entre otros muy relevantes, estableciendo una comparación entre los usos de la tecnología entre adolescentes y adultos australianos. En ella se muestra la gran dependencia de la tecnología en la actualidad por parte de los adolescentes, pero también por gran parte de los adultos.

Además, explica cómo este uso masivo puede afectar directa y negativamente en el autoestima de los más jóvenes. Por ello, aporta soluciones en las que los padres adquieren un gran papel, ya que se aconseja que los mismos naveguen por Internet con sus propios hijos, descubran redes sociales juntos, les ayuden a tomar las decisiones correctas, etc., pero siempre actuando como "compañero" y no como supervisor. Así se aseguraría la seguridad en Internet.

48 Critical Thinking Questions For Any Content Area

48 Critical Thinking Questions For Any Content Area | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it

"...critical thinking is more than understanding something — it involves evaluation, critiquing, and a depth of knowledge that surpasses the subject itself and expands outward. It requires problem-solving, creativity, rationalization, and a refusal to accept things at face value. 

It’s a willingness and ability to question everything."

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

 

A great list for use in nearly any situation requiring analysis.

Making a difference with making - Smart Brief

Making a difference with making - Smart Brief | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
If your region is anything like mine, there is a tremendous need for support related to makerspaces. The Maker Movement is one that centers on putting the design of learning, and all that comes along with it, ultimately in the hands of the learners themselves. Whether putting a pre-existing device together, solving a problem through the building of a device or designing a model for something that doesn’t yet exist, making is as much about the process of behind-the-scenes learning as it is about the product being formed.

In truth, making is so much more than re-imagining the tech or shop classes of our past. We’ve learned over the last few years that to appropriately support schools and districts in their journey to make meaning through making, we need to keep in mind a few important ideas.

Sphero Edu + Swift Playgrounds – Sphero Edu – Medium

Sphero Edu + Swift Playgrounds – Sphero Edu – Medium | 21st Century Learning | Scoop.it
At the Apple Worldwide Developers Conference in 2016, Apple announced Swift Playgrounds, a revolutionary app for the iPad that makes learning the Swift language interactive and fun for all learners. Swift Playgrounds is essentially a video game that teaches kids how to code using Apple’s Swift programming language. The interface allows you see what you’re creating with code as you write it — type your code on the left and immediately see the result on the right. Earlier in 2017, the Sphero Edu team partnered with Apple to build the first integrated Playground content designed to control real world robots. On June 5th at WWDC, Apple unveiled the new content that is now part of the Swift Playgrounds app. Thanks to our new partnership, you can now program real world robots including Sphero’s very own SPRK+.
