"Parents are very powerful models for their kids," Davis said. "They see how tied their parents are to technology. It’s really not about the technology; it’s really about how we use it and how dependent we are on technology."

Halina Ostańkowicz-Bazan's curator insight, May 30, 2014 4:38 AM
Technology can also make it more difficult to form an identity. There are more versions of "self" than ever before, which gives kids who may already be struggling to figure out who they are even more to juggle. In an interview with NPR, media theorist and author Douglas Rushkoff explained the feeling in a term he coined: “digiphrenia.”

Left to Their Own Smart Devices | English Learning & Teaching can be fun!! | Scoop.it

Educational institutions should enter the mobile age and embrace the opportunity to be more effective, efficient, and cost sensitive than ever before. The challenge, like with any disruption, is to rethink the system design and utilize new concepts, such as multi-persona, that align with this new age of mobility. Exciting times are ahead for educators.

A Guidebook for Social Media in the Classroom

A Guidebook for Social Media in the Classroom | English Learning & Teaching can be fun!! | Scoop.it

If you're going to ignore social media in the classroom, then [..] stop pretending that you're helping low-income children overcome the digital divide if you aren't going to teach them how to communicate online.
Social media is here. It's just another resource and doesn't have to be a distraction from learning objectives. Social media is another tool that you can use to make your classroom more engaging, relevant and culturally diverse.

5 Tips for Classroom Management with Mobile Devices | English Learning & Teaching can be fun!! | Scoop.it

Classroom management is a challenging skill which I consistently strive to improve on a regular basis.

However, I have found that many traditional methods of classroom management readily translate to the technological rich schoolroom – with some slight modification.

Swedish School Redesigned for Digital Pupils

Swedish School Redesigned for Digital Pupils | English Learning & Teaching can be fun!! | Scoop.it

The design of the school was based on what actually happens when we learn, a difference from traditionally built school buildings. It stimulated the children’s curiosity and creativity; it offered reflection and cooperation in the school, in mobile teams and on the web. The students were equipped with the latest digital technology in a rapidly changing world.

An interesting approach to early education, with a focus on creativity and innovation. Too early to tell, but initial results (in maths) seem to indicate positive results -- that is, above the Swedish national average. The title is a bit misleading, as pupils are not "digital"; however, the actual learning activities are supported by technology.

The skill of learning to edit media to enhance a project will be essential for the future. Active creativity and personalized learning are some of the main assets of any tablet.

Redefining the Writing Process with iPads | English Learning & Teaching can be fun!! | Scoop.it

With iPads, once we begin thinking beyond the confines of a page, anything is possible. Consider the video below created several years ago by two of my students. First they wrote plot summaries. Then they wrote character sketches. From there, they crafted paragraphs about theme, tying the visual and auditory elements of their videos back to the books. Finally, they created storyboards and bibliographies before producing and publishing their final product.
