How Teachers Can Change the Future of Educational Technology - InformED | BYOD and Learning in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
“One challenge facing educational start-ups is that many technologists don’t have real world teaching experience or have been out of the school system for so long that they’re out of touch with the classroom experience. And teachers who may have dynamic ideas for software or apps in education don’t have the technical know-how, access to investment, or experience starting a company from scratch.”

7 Reasons To Use Social Media In Your School (INFOGRAPHIC) | #ModernEDU

7 Reasons To Use Social Media In Your School (INFOGRAPHIC) | #ModernEDU | BYOD and Learning in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

One thing is for sure, social media is here to stay. Never before have people been able to connect, share, and learn from one another as we do now. I can only imagine what might be next! As a result, our students need skills to win at life in a digital world. The ability to use social media to support life goals and possibilities can be a game-changer. I know it has been very powerful for me in my professional life.

Apple is proud to share its work on accessibility, and so should everyone else | BYOD and Learning in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
“ Apple has long been a trailblazer down the path to accessibility with such features as VoiceOver; it originated on the Mac back in 2007, and is now on every device the company makes. In recent years, Apple has been highlighting the importance of including accessibility features in new technologies and sharing its work with the world. It's incredible, the things Apple has accomplished in working toward an inclusive and supportive range of devices that anyone and everyone can use, no matter what their level of ability is. Apple isn't the only one doing these things. There are lots of tech companies that include accessibility features on there devices and in their software programs, and even more app developers that provide incredible help to those that need it. More companies should be spotlighting what they do to advance accessibility technologies and proudly share their successes with the world. The competition to see who is the best at it could produce some amazing and revolutionary results.”

Study: Snapchat and Instagram are the worst for young people

Study: Snapchat and Instagram are the worst for young people | BYOD and Learning in the 21st Century | Scoop.it

A new study lends credence to what you’ve probably always suspected: social media is having a pretty negative effect on teenagers — Instagram and Snapchat being the worst culprits. The study, published today and called “Status of Mind,” was conducted by researchers for the Royal Society for Public Health in the UK. The researchers surveyed 1,479 British youths ages 14-24, asking them how they felt the different social media networks effected their mental health. They took in several factors such as body image, sleep deprivation, bullying, and self-identity.

The results suggest the two worst social media networks for kids are Instagram and Snapchat, as they had terrible scores for body image, bullying, and anxiety. Twitter and Facebook weren’t much better, though. YouTube was the only one that apparently inspired more positive feelings than negative ones.

Six Ways the Teacher's Role is Changing | #LEARNing2LEARN #ModernEDU

Six Ways the Teacher's Role is Changing | #LEARNing2LEARN #ModernEDU | BYOD and Learning in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
“During this time of significant educational change, we are forced to ask ourselves, what is the role of the teacher?Teachers continue to be central to learning, but the role is changing significantly. Our children still need to develop real skills and real knowledge, but they also need to be self-reliant, resilient, and fully capable of re-inventing themselves. This means students must learn how to self-direct their learning.So if students are self-directing their learning, what's the role of the teacher?Teachers build the curriculum/lessons with the individual student based on his/her needs and interests rather than move through a fixed curriculum en masse.”

Teachers provide the experiences and tools to access new knowledge in specific areas of interest as facilitators of individual pathways, rather than being a provider of the content or expert in one or every area,Teachers become experts in how people learn, not only in teaching.

Teachers support a community of learners in teams, possibly of multiple ages, rather than alone in classrooms with fixed grades of students.

Teachers have more autonomy over their daily schedule, and can be flexible to adjust their schedules to support student needs.

Teachers provide opportunities for real-world, connected, practical learning rather than isolated academics.These are the types of changes in the teacher's role that are fundamental to developing students who are capable of independent learning and reinvention in a rapidly changing world.

Teachers continue to be central to learning and students still need to develop real skills and real knowledge, however 21st century learners also need to be self-reliant, resilient, and fully capable of re-inventing themselves, meaning that students must learn how to self-direct their learning.

Our research shows that when students work on projects, they learn more | #PBL #Collaboration | BYOD and Learning in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
“Educators often talk about 21st-century skills and the benefits of incorporating communication, creativity, collaboration, problem-solving, and critical thinking into lessons. These are skills students rarely learn straight out of a textbook. The best way to teach them, we’ve found, is by making these skills a relevant part of their active lives.If that sounds daunting, rest assured, it doesn’t always have to be. One way we have taught these skills is through project-based learning (PBL), where students apply what they’ve learned during a hands-on project that is relevant to the real world — and their lives.To that end, a new report developed by MIDA Learning Technologies, which we researchers worked on, shows that students engaged in PBL understand concepts more deeply than those receiving traditional instruction, resulting in improved problem solving skills. Past research reviewed in the report also suggests that PBL students perform better on a wide range of assessments including standardized testing. The full report includes quantitative and qualitative evaluations of students’ problem-solving abilities after implementation of a pre-built, project-based STEM curriculum in science class.”

Do We Need to Teach Students to Use Technology? | Tech Learning

Do We Need to Teach Students to Use Technology? | Tech Learning | BYOD and Learning in the 21st Century | Scoop.it
“ Four years ago, when Chromebooks were new and my students were logging on for the first time, I dedicated days of class time to exploration, practice, and play. We learned how to navigate the apps launcher, customize settings, and turn in work, developing technical skills that would later be leveraged to enhance learning. Most of it was isolated from class content, focusing instead on building comfort and relationships. And for years, that strategy worked well. But in the last few years, I’ve reconsidered this idea, asking myself: do we still need to teach students to use technology? Back then, the question was more about whether or not we really needed technology. Now, it’s shifted to a focus on how and when to implement it meaningfully and effectively. In my dual roles as a teacher and coach, these are questions that are asked a lot, especially at the start of the year. And this year, my approach is really changing--I will no longer directly teach technology. Instead, I want to develop meaningful applications (and review) of the tools to jump right into relationship building, inquiry, exploration, and learning. The technology should never stand on its own, but should be embedded in content and skills.”

Manuela Mejia's curator insight, September 21, 2016 11:11 PM
Some people think that social networks are not suitable for academic purposes; however, what this article suggests is that teachers can encourage students to use Twitter as a learning platform in which learners and teachers share information about topics related with the academic field. As a teacher in development, I think that we can use almost all the tools that technology gave us, but it is very important that first we teach students how to use them. It is also important that teachers use personal and professional account since you do not want that students know things about your personal life, or maybe you do not want that you family and friends follow things related with their job. 

I consider that teachers can create an special section in which students talk about the Tweets that are interesting for them, or maybe make an activity like a reading circle, a debate or a speech in which the students get extra points because it helps that students focus on reading the suggested material and not only looking for the profile accounts of their friends.

“The main goal of a flipped classroom is to enhance student learning and achievement by reversing the traditional model of a classroom, focusing class time on student understanding rather than on lecture. To accomplish this, teachers post short video lectures online for students to view at home prior to the next class session. This allows class time to be devoted to expanding on and mastering the material through collaborative learning exercises, projects, and discussions.”

Whether it’s sensor-based medicine, computational contracts, education analytics or agriculture—success is going to rely on being able to do computational thinking well.
