9 Roles For The Teacher That Leads - Te@chThought

9 Roles For The Teacher That Leads - Te@chThought | Education, learning and other things | Scoop.it

"Jackie Gerstein’s User Generated Education is a favorite of ours, with her ideas on self-directed learning, connectivity, experiential learning, and other strands of progressive teaching and learning very much in aligned with our own thoughts on what a modern learning experience should look like.

 

At the core of Gerstein’s thinking is the idea of making–hands on creation of compelling stuff that reflects what’s important to students. She has recently released a new book on this idea, The Educator as a Maker Educator. Among the ideas offered up in the book is exactly what you might expect from the title–reenvisioning the role of the teacher, this time as a “maker educator.”"

100 Of The Best Educational Games For iPad

100 Of The Best Educational Games For iPad | Education, learning and other things | Scoop.it

"For some reason, educational games are getting an increasingly bad rap.

 

Educators are questioning their merits on social media. Studies are popping up saying they don’t help. Psychologists are cautioning parents about impact on attention span.

 

Part of this could be over-inflated expectations. If we expect a game to teach children anything other than what that games simulates, we’re setting ourselves up for disappointment."
