What Do You Want Kids to Do with Technology? | Everything I found about mLearning | Scoop.it

Wrong Answers: make Prezis, start blogs, create Wordles, publish Animotos, design flipcharts, produce videos, post to Edmodo, use whiteboard, develop apps

 

Right Answers: raise awareness, start conversations, find answers (to THEIR questions), join partners, change minds, make a difference, take action, drive change

 

Technology is a TOOL, NOT an outcome

Hannah Roukas's curator insight, October 22, 2013 7:55 AM

This post was short but to the point.  Technology should be one of the subjects kids learn in school, it should be used to help kids develop ideas.  Teachers should use technology to keep lessons interesting so kids don't fall asleep or become uninteresting.

Geoff Findley's curator insight, November 29, 2013 1:08 AM

Good to think about...

Why Highlighting Is a Waste of Time: The Best and Worst Learning Techniques

Why Highlighting Is a Waste of Time: The Best and Worst Learning Techniques | Everything I found about mLearning | Scoop.it
Some of the most common strategies for retaining knowledge are the least effective, according to a new report
Markéta Čonková's insight:

Highlighting and underlining led the authors’ list of ineffective learning strategies. Although they are common practices, studies show they offer no benefit beyond simply reading the text...ighlighting, underlining, rereading and summarizing were all rated by the authors as being of “low utility.”


It’s much more effective to dip into the material at intervals over time. And the longer you want to remember the information, whether it’s two weeks or two years, the longer the intervals should be.The second learning strategy that is highly recommended by the report’s authors is practice testing. Yes, more tests — but these are not for a grade

How Project-Based Learning Works In England - Edudemic

How Project-Based Learning Works In England - Edudemic | Everything I found about mLearning | Scoop.it
Project-based learning (which in the UK we are more likely to call 'Independent Learning') is hugely significant as a concept and is massively misunderstood.
Markéta Čonková's insight:

"Too many teachers embark upon an independent learning project to give themselves a break from teaching.  The truth is, you have to work just as hard, perhaps harder than a normal classroom practitioner; you need to be able to mentor each student in your class individually and this can be really hard work."
