“Apparently my job is to shut up and study hard” | Dangerously Irrelevant

“Apparently my job is to shut up and study hard” | Dangerously Irrelevant | Ed-ipad | Scoop.it

High school student Jack Hostager says:

[My participation in the Coastal America Student Summit on the Oceans and Coasts] was indisputably the best learning experience I have ever had. I learned more than I could have ever learned in a classroom about how the planet works, ways in which humans depend on and impact the ocean, and efforts being undertaken to conserve them. Equally important, I discovered how to work well with others, connect with people, be persuasive, speak in front of an audience, answer questions under pressure, juggle competing priorities, and follow through with a project.

 

These all sound like skills that every student should have. Yet because I didn’t practice them in a classroom, I was punished by education’s systems of grading for this. When I got back to school, my grades had dropped (some considerably) since I missed a few assignments and a test. It was as if the whole experience meant nothing because I learned the wrong thing. But it would have been irrelevant even if it directly related to what I was studying because I still would have had to make up the work, listen to a lecture, and eventually take a test.

 

After returning inspired and ready to change the world only to be thrust back into the invariable cycle of desks, worksheets, textbooks, and lockers, education’s expectation for me hit me painfully hard. I realized that.......

Amanda Tu's curator insight, March 6, 2013 8:32 PM

There is a plethora of information online when searching for practical ideas, tips and strategies about using Web 2.0 tools in the classroom.  I often find myself getting bogged down in lengthy reviews about tools, and as a result, find myself working with the few favourites I have mastered over the years.  This page however is exceptionally user friendly; organising the Web 2.0 teaching tools into distinct categories.  From there you are taken to another user friendly list which, (quite conveniently), takes you directly to any of the tools you are interested in via a hyperlink.  Fantastic resource when searching for tools which enable students to design and create visual presentations of their ideas using ICT.
