10 Pros And Cons Of A Flipped Classroom

10 Pros And Cons Of A Flipped Classroom | English Prose | Scoop.it
The main goal of a flipped classroom is to enhance student learning and achievement by reversing the traditional model of a classroom, focusing class time on student understanding rather than on lecture. To accomplish this, teachers post short video lectures online for students to view at home prior to the next class session. This allows class time to be devoted to expanding on and mastering the material through collaborative learning exercises, projects, and discussions.

Aula Inversa: Necesario analizar las experiencias
Carlos Fosca's curator insight, August 5, 2017 5:04 PM

No todo es ventajoso en el flipped classroom, pues al ser resignificado por el uso de la tecnología, este puede generar una inequidad entre los estudiantes que tienen o nó acceso a ella. Por otro lado, representa mucho más trabajo para el docente. Sin embargo, los aspectos positivos de aplicar el flipped classroom son mucho mayores que sus inconvenientes.

All Roads Lead to Code - EduTech4Teachers | English Prose | Scoop.it
So, why just use technology, when you can build it, right? But first—students need the programming know-how in order to do so… And that begins with you!

Whether you choose to embrace the concept or not, it’s becoming more and more important to equip students with coding skills. It’s the new literacy for a generation of students growing up in a digitally-connected world. Having this knowledge not only strengthens general skills such as critical thinking and problem solving, but it will become invaluable in their future as a wide range of industries are eager to hire individuals with programming abilities.

Getting Started Making And Programming With LEGO Robotics

Getting Started Making And Programming With LEGO Robotics | English Prose | Scoop.it
For years, LEGO has been at the forefront of innovative building kits for young makers and creators. Always looking for new ways to keep kids building and experimenting, LEGO has gone far beyond the static blocks we are all familiar with.

From LEGO City kits to LEGO Star Wars, LEGO Technic, and even LEGO Minecraft kits, there really is something LEGO for every age, skill level, and interest. But the jewel in the ever-growing crown of the LEGO universe just may be the addition of LEGO robotics, and the maker sensation that is the LEGO Mindstorms EV3 building kit and programming platform.

There’s no innovation agenda without design thinking - Globe and Mail

There’s no innovation agenda without design thinking - Globe and Mail | English Prose | Scoop.it
Never have design thinking, design practice and creative skills been as important to Canada’s future as they are now. Today, competitive success is determined by the ability to understand human needs and desires and to deliver richly imagined ways of addressing them. Many organizations recognize the importance of innovation, but they don’t know how to achieve it. The answer is design.

Designers allow companies to stay ahead of their customers by anticipating and addressing human needs and behaviours in a complex and changing world. Technology needs to be intentionally designed for and with people. Design creates the experience of a product, system or service, the individual, social and cultural experience, and the value and the impact it has. Design is the bridge between raw invention and application.

The essence of design thinking involves empathizing deeply, listening to people and observing them to identify tough problems to address or new opportunities to explore. Design thinking marries systems analysis with outcomes-oriented problem solving. It’s relevant to the development and enhancement of services, products and business methods. It’s as applicable to large companies as it is to startups and non-profits.

#Makerspace for Education - University of British Columbia MET #makered | English Prose | Scoop.it
Despite the popularity and trend of the term “makerspace”, educators have to search hundreds of articles, websites and books to determine what this term is, how to begin, where to locate materials and determine the educational significance. Another complication is that the resurgence of this DIY movement found its grassroots in the public population and is just starting to make its way back to education. This makes navigating materials from an educational lens even more challenging.  Makerspace for Education, is a collaborative digital space for educators to explore how to create and use makerspaces in their own environments and will help to transform pedagogies of individual educators through immersion in the context and the support of a community of practice.

No screenshot could do justice to this animation.  It transforms a map of the world from one map projection to another, and in the 5 second interval it 'spins the globe' to give you a sense of the the spatial distortions inherent in all projections.  This is but one of the many visualizations fromJason Davies mapping project.

"There is a shortage of people who know how to program. These are high quality, high paying jobs. How do we encourage students to learn how to code? Learning to programming not only is a skill that is in high demand, it is also incredibly useful. We have all wished we had an app or a program that would do a particular thing that is specific to ourselves. I know some HTML and some JavaScript and Google Apps Script and it is amazing what you can do with just a little knowledge"

Cardboard Challenges: No Tech/Low Cost Maker Education - @JackieGerstein

Cardboard Challenges: No Tech/Low Cost Maker Education - @JackieGerstein | English Prose | Scoop.it
I believe in the importance of participating in ongoing and continuous reflective practice as an educator. This is my reflection on my Cardboard Challenges Maker Education Camp that was taught to twelve 5 to 10 year old learners for five days, 2.5 hours each morning.  My Cardboard Challenges webpage of ideas can be found at http://www.makereducation.com/cardboard-challenge.html.

This post is divided into three sections: (1) a rationale for using no tech, minimal cost materials, (2) some of my general observations about how the learners interacted with the materials, the projects, and each other during the camp, and (3) a description of the specific cardboard activities along with my observations how well they worked with the learners.

The Earthquake That Will Devastate Seattle

The Earthquake That Will Devastate Seattle | English Prose | Scoop.it
When the giant fault line along the Pacific Northwest ruptures, it could be our worst natural disaster ever.

 

The Cascadia subduction zone remained hidden from us for so long because we could not see deep enough into the past. It poses a danger to us today because we have not thought deeply enough about the future. The Cascadia situation, a calamity in its own right, is also a parable for this age of ecological reckoning, and the questions it raises are ones that we all now face. How should a society respond to a looming crisis of uncertain timing but of catastrophic proportions? How can it begin to right itself when its entire infrastructure and culture developed in a way that leaves it profoundly vulnerable to natural disaster?

This is a long read but well worth the time. "The really big one," an earthquake in the Pacific Northwest over 8.0, last happened in 1700, but seismologists know that the geological pressure on the fault lines have been building since then.  This in not a panic-inducing article, but one reminding people that the most potent natural disasters operate on cycles much longer than our lifetimes.

Kelsey McIntosh's curator insight, January 25, 7:33 PM
The Cascadia fault line in the Pacific Northwest is one that humans should be afraid of. In January of 1700 the Northwest corner of the [then growing] United States, was hit by an extremely powerful earthquake, which, due to overwhelming geographic evidence, is assumed to be a 9.0 on the current Richter scale. The catastrophic event caused the land, which was already being submerged under the neighboring plate to be further submerged and killed a variety of plant life. After further research, seismologists have predicted that the Cascadia is likely a ticking time bomb and any sudden movement where the tectonic plates are touching could pose quite the problem for modern day America.
