Engage Students with Flipped Video Tasks

Engage Students with Flipped Video Tasks | Education | Scoop.it
One of the major criticisms of this method though is that a dull unengaging content doesn't suddenly become engaging because it's on a video on the web, so how do we get students to engage with the content and make sure they watch it in a challenging and interactive way.

Vialogues is a useful tool for attempting to do this (though dull content will always be dull) because it enables you to create interaction around the video that actually gets students to think about and engage with the content.

Digital skills that teachers need for the classroom #3: The ability to crowdsource information

Digital skills that teachers need for the classroom #3: The ability to crowdsource information | Education | Scoop.it
As teachers we frequently promote ourselves in our modern role as facilitators rather than knowledge owners and yet when we get into the classroom so much of what we do tends to be telling rather than asking.

Crowdsourcing information is about doing the opposite. It’s about collecting information from the room and beyond and enabling our students to share what they already know and develop their knowledge together.

How To Kill Learner Curiosity In 12 Easy Steps.

 

Killing a learner’s natural curiosity doesn’t happen overnight. It can take as long as 12 years, and in some rare cases even that isn’t long enough.

 

Learning environments focused on standards, assessment, and compliance allow for the implementation of research-based strategies in pursuit of streams of data to prove that learning is happening. Curiosity is nice, but it’s a monumental challenge to measure.

Jenny's curator insight, September 17, 2017 11:56 AM
Google Docs is one of the great apps I have explored during my learning experience. I remember that when I was at school, most of my teachers suggested us to start using it since it is very easy to use and manage. However, I did not have a computer and I did not like the idea of doing homeworks by the computer. To me, homeworks were better at hand, but through the years, I started becoming aware about the advantages of using this app. 
In my school, there was an attempt to develop and enhance cooperative work since most of the parents were arguing that they did not want their children to do homeworks in others friends` houses, for them, it was better to start using the computer as a way to perform tasks with no moving from their home in their free time. 
I really love this app because it facilitates the development of tasks , optimizes time and enhances the cooperation among partners .
It is significant to recognize that this great app is now taking place in different settings due to the features it provides. It is a powerful tool in academic scenarios because it promotes autonomy, cooperative work and responsibility.
Some years ago, it just provided the feature of sharing documents and editing some aspects of the text, but now that technology has settled into many contexts,google docs provide more features to correct, align and adjust the document.

25 Teaching Tools To Organize, Innovate, & Manage Your Classroom - TeachThought

25 Teaching Tools To Organize, Innovate, & Manage Your Classroom - TeachThought | Education | Scoop.it
Over the years, many of us have personally experienced the growth of technology in today’s classrooms.

Instead of taking notes, students are now occupied by surfing the Internet, scrolling through Facebook, and messaging their friends on their smart phones, tablets, and laptops. Instead of focusing on the instruction, teachers are constantly required to interrupt class in order to remind those students again and again, that class time is for learning, not texting. However, as today’s students are using more technological devices, it is imperative that teachers have access to the resources to keep pace with the growing tech culture.

The use of smart phones, tablets, and other tech items in the classroom do not necessarily have to have a negative impact on student achievement. On the contrary, the increasing accessibility and growth of technology presents teachers with the unique opportunity to take advantage of those once distracting gadgets, and use them to facilitate academic achievement in new and innovative ways. In this capacity, teachers do not need to be constantly fighting for student attention, but can freely accept it, by introducing a new educational environment that will automatically encourage student participation.

Below are some resources that teachers may find useful when attempting to implement technology into their classrooms, separated by 5 common areas that are increasingly important for teachers, and for an effective learning environment—Organization, Project Based Learning, Class Management, Presentations, and Assessment.

Are you a whole teacher? A Self-Assessment to understand

Are you a whole teacher? A Self-Assessment to understand | Education | Scoop.it

Whole Child Learning is a thing; Whole Teaching should be a thing too, no?

Here at TeachThought, Jackie Gerstein’s usergeneratededucation is at the top of our reading list, in large part for her thinking about the human side of formal education. Much of our content–that is, the content here at TeachThought, and that on her site–overlaps because of our shared perspective on teaching and learning: self-directed learning, the role of play in learning, the idea of citizenship, student-centered learning (and student-centered teaching), and more.

(The fact that we have to push ourselves to think of the “human side” could be part of our problem; teaching and learning are among the most human of processes–a natural response to our environment and curiosity.)

We’ve also long been interested in the work of Costa and Kallick with the Habits of Mind (See What Are The Habits Of Mind? and 16 Strategies For Integrating The Habits Of Mind) as wonderful supplements to an academic curriculum. More and more, they’re richness has us wondering if they’re not more important than the “content” itself.

These ideas have pushed us to consider what it is that students really need to know in a modern world, which we’re going to have spend some time this year thinking about. And it is in that whole Habits of Mind/new knowledge demands context comes Jackie’s “Twelve 21st Century Skills & Attributes: Educator Self-Assessment.” Jackie has framed this concept (modern teaching) through 12 characteristics, and again through teacher self-assessment questions for each characteristic.

The end result is a shift from academia to people to can supplement standards-based teaching and learning, or replace it altogether if we want to get all progressive and avant garde about it.
