The last thing you want to do in a college chemistry lab is spill a beaker full of acid and run screaming to the eyewash station. But a virtual reality laboratory safety course requires you to do just that if you hope to pass the class. Well, all but the screaming. That's optional.

How The 2018 VR Headsets Will Impact Classroom Learning

How The 2018 VR Headsets Will Impact Classroom Learning | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

Wondering how the 2018 VR Headsets will impact classroom learning? Check how the 2018 VR Headsets will impact classroom learning.

owever, many schools now start by thinking of a 1:1 experience due to the rapid advance of the Chromebook into classrooms. In 2016 and 2017, this was not a possibility in Virtual Reality. By the time classes begin in the fall of 2018, it will be. That is because Oculus, HTC Vive, Google/Lenovo, and Pico have all released untethered, standalone headsets. For the most part, they will cost less than $500, with the Oculus Go starting at $200. Microsoft, which released its Windows Mixed Reality VR system in the fall of '17 will more than likely be along with their own version sometime in the next 12 months (this is me guessing with no inside knowledge).

20+ Web Tools to Help Students with Their Writing - Educator's Technology

20+ Web Tools to Help Students with Their Writing - Educator's Technology | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it
As a fan of the digital writing workshop, I believe that when teaching writing teachers should focus primarily on the process and only secondarily on the product. Such a focus can help students develop the required know-how and skills applicable to different genres of writing. And because technology is almost indispensable in the writing process, I want to draw your attention to these web tools that you can use with your students in different writing stages. I have basically arranged them into the following categories: Digital storytelling tools,  Comic strips tools,  Mind mapping tools, story starters, Writing mechanics (grammar and style), Graphic organizers,  and Tools for publishing students writing.

Students should be taught to be Digital Leaders instead of Digital Citizens

Students should be taught to be Digital Leaders instead of Digital Citizens | Differentiated and ict Instruction | Scoop.it

Today’s modern world demands that students become digital citizens. This citizenship requires that participants be respectful in communications, cautious in accepting all content as true, and attentive to safety and security. Digital citizenship teaches positive habits in using technology.

Digital citizenship is about responsible technology use, but citizenship alone is not enough.

As the way in which students engage with technology changes, the role of the connected student must also change. Students should be taught to be digital leaders instead of digital citizens.

Hannah Vaughan's curator insight, May 30, 7:46 AM
This is a repost from Laura. 
A positive behaviour of students is being engaged with their school work. An efficient way to encourage students to take ownership and engage with the course work, is to give students control. Teachers are in the unique position to give students choices regarding what and how they study the required content. Glasser’s theory of control states that ‘if students do not feel that they have power in their… classes, they will not work in school’ (Glasser, 1991). This process of assuming responsibility for their learning allows students to become competent, independent learners. Choice theory is the idea that in order to get people to cooperate and work together. Instead of the traditional external control psychology which ‘pits individuals against each other in an attempt to make others do what they don't want to do’ (Glasser, 1991). In the classroom this could like designing a history project that is completely student led. Students are given a specific time period, theme or concept and asked to design a project which take an in-depth look into a section that captures their interest. Choice theory encourages students to be responsible for their thinking, behaviour, learning and choices. This aligns with Ragnar’s responsibility behaviour management plan that aims to teach students that they are responsible for their behaviour. ‘The students are informed from the outset that their thinking changes their neurology’ (Ragnar, 2015). It also teaches the strategies that they can employ to stop episodes of inappropriate behaviour. Ragnar (2015) describes how as teachers we want to get students to a point where when we ask, “Who’s got the power?”, each student is able to respond with “I’ve got the power”. The use of choice theory, or giving students control of their unique learning experience, helps students develop confidence in their own ability, and improve self-esteem. This in turn makes the learner feel good about their own abilities, leading to improved learning goals.

Blake Quinn's curator insight, May 31, 9:36 AM
I found this scoop quite short but very meaningful, as its contents of the different positive outcomes of students when they own their learning, are what I want to achieve and help guide my future students towards. I think the outcomes of students being self-determined, having growth mindsets, resilience and grit, project management skills and wanting to experiment. Are great traits for not only students to have in class but out of school as well. I will defiantly thrive to alter my ways of teaching to encourage students to own their learning while in my classes.
Mitchell Allen Klaer's curator insight, June 3, 3:50 AM
From what I have learnt so far in my pre service teaching experience I am a strong believer in guiding students to develop their own learning. I believe it allows them to think critically and become problem solvers as well as really experience what they enjoy about each subject. If they enjoy the subject then they are more inclined to engage which will enable them to learn the subject and remember what they learn.
