Texting In Class May Distract Students, But It Could Also Help Them Learn

Texting In Class May Distract Students, But It Could Also Help Them Learn | eLearning | Scoop.it
Gone are the days when kids would get in trouble for passing notes in class. Today’s youngsters are much more sophisticated, technologically speaking, than those who grew up in the days of flip phones and CD players — let alone those whose only access to a phone growing up was a spin-dial one. This means there’s a lot more texting, tweeting, and Facebooking on smartphones in your average high school or college classroom than ever before.

Does this also mean that kids today are way more distracted by the bombardment of information reaching them via their tablets and iPhones? A new study out of the National Communication Association wanted to find out whether increased smartphone and social media use in class impacted student learning — and what they found was that it had both negative and positive effects.

In the study, researchers analyzed kids who were using phones in class to respond to text messages — both relevant and irrelevant to the class material. They measured the type of messages and the frequency of them, and found that students who were texting about the material actually scored higher on multiple choice tests about the subject than those who were texting about non-class related things.

Eric Moss's curator insight, June 29, 2015 11:02 AM

It is time to make decisions on what we want to do for kids who are going to be on their social media devices during class time. After looking at this insightful article, I agree that being able to discuss class work with other students while class is in session is only going to help. Interestingly, the study showed that discussing materials through social media lead to greater test scores. I think that a big problem is that kids are trying to hide their devices while in class, and this is the part that is distracting them. Maybe if we implemented new technology, which allowed for students to have a built in I pad in his or her desk, allowing group chats, and online public discussions to take place, this would be beneficial. Staying on topic, posting to friends and family about what you are learning is only going to lead to a better understanding of the topic. Changing what many might view as a negative action, to a positive idea might be key when thinking about the future of our education system, and all of the social media available. Higher grades will be the reward, while lower grades will be the consequence for kids who reject using this new feature the proper way.

JoanHughes's curator insight, June 30, 2015 5:58 AM

This article gives food for thought.  Are mobile phones being used to engage learners or do teachers see it as a distraction?

5 steps for creating a custom makerspace | eSchool News | eSchool News

5 steps for creating a custom makerspace | eSchool News | eSchool News | eLearning | Scoop.it
I believe that every child has the right to invent, tinker, create, innovate, make, and do. The maker movement has created opportunities for all educators to give students authentic learning opportunities that go beyond the typical classroom experiences and to rethink traditional learning environments to include those that nurture the kinds of creativity and innovation that will benefit our students both in school and beyond. We know children learn by exploring and playing and doing and making and that these kinds of things lead to deeper engagement. The maker movement embodies opportunities for experimentation and innovation to occur across all grade levels and all content areas.

Physical makerspaces have allowed us the opportunity to pull some of this excitement of the maker movement into our schools. Makerspaces can help set the stage for meaningful student learning, as well as help cultivate a culture of innovation within a school. My makerspace inspires innovation, passion, and personal motivation and interests, and has encouraged students to pursue STEM subjects and careers.

App #58: Green Screen by Doink  - Teaching with iPad @sly111 | eLearning | Scoop.it
Here is a very easy to use app called Green Screen by Doink. The process of green screening is to have the ability to change the backgrounds of your videos. Combine images and/or video to create one single video. I have been doing it for a few years now. Before the iPad, doing green screen effects were quite challenging and required expensive software on PCs. Now, using this app ($2.99 USD, iTunes link), you and your students will easily create fun, informative and educational videos for parents and classmates alike. By reading ahead, you will have a chance at winning a free promo code for this great app.

Your Students can be “Makers”: 16 Projects Invented by Teachers - Getting Smart

Your Students can be “Makers”: 16 Projects Invented by Teachers - Getting Smart | eLearning | Scoop.it
The premise is simple: start with a quick tour of the facility and very brief show-and-tell of the tools (less than 30 minutes!), follow with a group brainstorming session around project ideas (less than 30 minutes!), then form groups to jump into projects. Even before lunch on the first day, groups were already sketching and tinkering with Hummingbird Robotics kits, MaKeyMaKeys, cardboard and MakeDo’s, and more. For two days, I jumped in to help groups, learned new tools myself (LittleBits!), fetched tools and supplies as needed (copper tape! wire strippers!), recommended resources and suppliers (Sparkfun! DigiKey!), and acted as cheerleader for teachers pushing themselves to learn incredible new skills and create amazing artifacts of their learning.

The final projects blew ALL of us coaches away! The absolute best part, from my perspective, is that every single project was immediately applicable back in the participant’s classroom. Most of them are generally applicable in any learning environment! Serious high school science content, literature and history, elementary grades, even social/emotional learning… This was absolutely the most excellent collection of practical and academically-oriented maker projects I’ve seen!
