How augmented reality can contribute to education

How augmented reality can contribute to education | ict in the science classroom | Scoop.it
Augmented reality has become a way to engage studious people and to address learning disabilities. Because it can overlay digital content and information onto the real world, it opens up a new range of learning opportunities

Glen Morris's insight:

How I plan to engage the class us AR next year:

 

1. I am planning on introducing Aurasma in the science centre next year. Dead posters will come to life, the anatomy model will link to anatomy lessons, the skeleton "Mr Bones" will link to the name of each bone scanned.(https://www.aurasma.com/)

 

2. Going to have a QR scavenger hunt/ Amazing Race next year - and I plan to assess it!

 

3.QR codes on tests/reports that link to a webcam video giving feedback on each student (personalised + unique attention = switched on learners)

 

Just 3 thoughts... what are yours?

How to Minimize Digital Classroom Distractions | ict in the science classroom | Scoop.it
Classroom technologies such as smartphones, tablets, computers, and wireless internet access offer exciting opportunities to enhance and deepen the learning process. However, using technology in the classroom can also bring multiple distractions to students. Without your proactive supervision, students might access games, web pages, and social networking sites as you deliver instruction.

Rules and regulations are crucial for having a focused classroom which is surrounded by technology.  Keeping the learners focused on the material is a way of delivering content obtaining an optimal response from the students.  This article shows some good ways of implementing this in the classroom scene.  Following ethical options that have the instructor focused on facilitating the delivery of content using technology, and less worried about always having challenges with learners not engaged.

This is a pretty cool concept, and definitely creative thinking of how to gamify social studies and current events, but also a great way to get kids to use digital tools to learn. The teacher even tracks it all on a website. Now, if this could be made into a mobile app....(give it time! Give it time!)

The 13 most innovative schools in the world

The 13 most innovative schools in the world | ict in the science classroom | Scoop.it

Innovation in education can look like lots of things, like incorporating new technology or teaching methods, going on field trips, rejecting social norms, partnering with the local community. It can be a floating school in an impoverished region, like the one in Lagos, Nigeria. Or it can be a school that's blind to gender, like Egalia, in Stockholm, Sweden.

Glen Morris's insight:

A really nice read! However they could only fit in 13 so there are a few more I would have like to add. Like Northern Beaches Christian School in Sydney. They have revolutionised the use of space and learning with The Zone. Learn more about his dynamic group:

Steve Collis - happysteve.com or @steve_collis

Louise Deibe - edurebellion.com  or @ldeibe


They are running a 2 day workshop in November. I am sad not being able to attend, but have learnt a lot at the Hamba Phambisa conference they held in South Africa. Learn more here...http://goo.gl/y3Dsze

 

Another school is the the School of One in New York. Their personalised learning framework is excellent....http://goo.gl/ktVNMc

 

Anyone planning to innovate must realise that you cannot just go digital and assume change has happened. You have to change the virtual, physical and social spaces together.

Thinking and teaching outside the box is happening on a global level.  America does not have the best system.  On a global level we are way behind the curve.  It's up to educators in the US to find better ways to become more innovative in the educational process.

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought

6 Tips For Creating Effective Student Groups - TeachThought | ict in the science classroom | Scoop.it
Grouping students is easy; creating effective student groups is less so.

The following infographic from Mia MacMeekin seeks to provide some ideas to help make group work easier in your classroom. The strength of this particular graphic is in the range of the ideas. The first tip refers teachers to Vygotsky’s Zone of Proximal development, which frames student ability in terms of a range: what they can do unassisted, what they can do with the support of a More Knowledgeable Other (MKO), and what they cannot do even with support. This is different for each student, and understanding these ranges for students can help inform grouping decisions, whether you’re using a peer instruction model, ability grouping, or another approach.
