Response: The Best Ways To Use Tech In The Classroom | iPads for Teaching | Scoop.it

How do teachers make informed decisions in relation to a balanced use of technology in the classroom? Where can new teachers become better informed about best practices for technology use in the classroom without becoming overwhelmed and discouraged by the overload of information?

It's not only a question of balanced use. It's also a question of how to achieve and maintain a balance with the influx of webtools. I always want to try everything to determine what will work best for my students.

Petra Pollum's curator insight, January 9, 2013 6:58 AM

This is a useful article with some good basic criteria for selecting web based tools to use in learning.

Randy Rebman's curator insight, January 16, 2013 12:38 AM

Some good criteria to assist teachers in evaluating technology's potential for language teaching & learning.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, January 12, 2013 6:48 AM

Richard Byrne has updated one of his most popular posts, on creating comics in the classroom. As well as providing information of five tools to create comics  he also provides two slideshows (by B. Hendy). The first slideshow looks at strategies for using comics in the classroom. The second slideshow provides a quick look at how comics have the potential to have students use higher order thinking skills as well as providing materials on other sites that help to create comics.

The Use and Abuse of Technology in the Classroom

The Use and Abuse of Technology in the Classroom | iPads for Teaching | Scoop.it

Technology should not be used as simply a digital worksheet. There are many apps and Internet sites available that are simply a technological version of a paper task, forcing students to practice over and over a skill that they may already have mastered.  Don’t get me wrong. Skills do need to be practiced. I just happen to think that students should spend most of their time using technology for more creative purposes.

and when I say this most people say 'but I like to learn', and they obviously missed the point... think pre-language humans / post-language humans, we will take for granted that everyone masters our language, id est the sum of all human knowledge.

we´ll take the worlds knowledge for granted, just like our previous language, just like our tap-water, just like we´ve always assimilated our technology and made it a part of who we are, our cultural/social identity, it´s the human condition,

Of course, it should be in system should be synced, but not as a whole. Partially, the system can be implemented. In my point of view it is must to adopt the advancement. Avoiding the thinking of classroom, the system must understand about the participation of the student.

Create, create, create!  Design.  Build!  Love the direction here!

I try to weave Bloom into every lesson and build to the end of the trimester at the top.

Nancy L Zingrone's curator insight, January 26, 2013 5:51 PM

This is a much better trajectory for the elements in the taxonomy. Creativity is both the pinnacle of what we do and at the heart of what we do.
