The Three-Step System For Getting Students to Do the Talking - AJ Juliani @ajjuliani

The Three-Step System For Getting Students to Do the Talking - AJ Juliani @ajjuliani | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
It doesn’t matter if you look at Bloom’s Taxonomy, Webb’s Depth of Knowledge, or any other set of educational standards or guidelines.

When students are communicating and collaborating (and talking) much more learning is happening!

This is the three-step system we used and it worked well, but constantly needed to be tweaked.

It looked very different in terms of setup and time allotted when I did it with different groups of students depending on their age, level, and experience in a student-centered environment.

"Kids Can't Learn From Teachers They Don't Like" - TeachThought

"Kids Can't Learn From Teachers They Don't Like" - TeachThought | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
The following TEDTalk by Rita Pierson reminds us of why we all got involved in teaching to begin with.

While curriculum, assessment, and instructional design may be how you parse your thinking now, at one point it probably had more to do with content, curiosity, and relationships. In this talk, the 40-year veteran teacher reminds us that not only do relationships matters, sometimes they’re all that matters.

“Let Them Be Amazing!” – Teach, Learn, Grow! - Richard Roberts @richroberts76

“Let Them Be Amazing!” – Teach, Learn, Grow! - Richard Roberts @richroberts76 | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

A video I often show at professional learning sessions I facilitate is the TEDx Talk “Extracurricular Empowerment” by Scott McLeod (@mcleod).


Mr. McLeod talks about the powerful, “at home learning” students are doing with technology. He asks the questions “how can we take the extracurricular and turn it into the curricular?”  This really is a profound statement as it, in many ways, answers the question posed earlier, “technology changes so fast, how can I keep up?” The answer really comes down to this….. you don’t have to keep up! If we empower our students and focus on their skills, strengths, affinity, and talents with technology we don’t have to “know it all”, but rather just focus on what the students already know and do, and bring that into the classroom.

How to Thrive in the 21st Century - Harvard Graduate School of Education

How to Thrive in the 21st Century - Harvard Graduate School of Education | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"As Chung suggests, the 21st-century global citizen’s cognitive skill set includes traditional, testable basics such as math and literacy, but extends beyond that to encompass a particularly strong emphasis on the world in which we live. “Current events highlight some of the fears around otherness,” she says. The key to informed citizenship is getting to know other cultures — and valuing them.

In addition to rounding out kids’ knowledge base to include a nuanced understanding of world geography and cultures, schools must teach them the skills to use this knowledge as active and engaged citizens.”

Is Technology Holding Students Back? | Edudemic

Is Technology Holding Students Back? | Edudemic | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Today, a day without tech being used in the classroom would be an unusual day indeed. In fact, according to a survey by Front Row Education, 75% of teachers say they use technology daily with their students. Tablets and laptops are now common in many classrooms. These devices can be loaded with education programs and apps for students, and using this kind of technology makes it easy for teachers to track student progress.

On the cutting edge of ed-tech you’ll find tools like virtual reality and 3D printing. By using virtual reality technology, like Google Glass, students can visit other locations without ever leaving their desks. These tools use 3D imagery to make the wearer feel like they’re exploring a realm in person. 3D printing also gives students opportunities to explore cutting-edge concepts in the classroom. Students can design objects on a computer and then “print” them out on a 3D printer, which uses plastic or other materials to create the object. These kinds of technologies may currently be cost prohibitive for many schools, but you’re likely to see them being adopted by classrooms in the coming years.

Why Students Forget—and What You Can Do About It

Why Students Forget—and What You Can Do About It | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Teachers have long known that rote memorization can lead to a superficial grasp of material that is quickly forgotten. But new research in the field of neuroscience is starting to shed light on the ways that brains are wired to forget—highlighting the importance of strategies to retain knowledge and make learning stick.

Carlos Fosca's curator insight, April 3, 6:05 PM

"De acuerdo a los neurobiólogos Blake Richards and Paul Frankland, el objetivo de la memoria no es solo almacenar información con precisión sino también "optimizar la toma de decisiones" en entornos caóticos y muy cambiantes. En este modelo de cognición, el olvido es una estrategia evolutiva, un proceso útil que se ejecuta en el fondo de la memoria, evaluando y descartando información que no promueve la supervivencia de la especie." (Youki Terada, 2017).

29 Practical Ways to Empower Learners in Your Classroom

“Yea, but what does it look like?”

This is the question I hear and see most frequently online and at conferences when someone mentions the phrase empower students. 

As someone who just released a book with the title, Empower, I have gone in-depth talking about the differences between compliance (forcing kids to pay attention to our content), engagement (getting kids excited about our content), and empowerment (kids excited to learn on their own).

Bill Ferriter sums up the difference perfectly in this blog post with a visual:

We owe it to our youth to motivate them to want to learn. However we can not make them learn. There are many factors to take into consideration when trying to cultivate learning in the classroom.

3 things schools must know about the rising “phigital” student

3 things schools must know about the rising “phigital” student | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
A major generational clash is underway, says a foremost expert, and it’s affecting all industries, including education. The clash is coming from so-called Gen Z, the first generation to be considered fully “phigital”—unwilling or unable to draw a distinction between the physical world and its digital equivalent.

So what does that mean for educators? Well, buckle up and hold on.

Imagine students studying a country and connecting with a class there to ask questions and share learning. Imagine students being able to talk with older students and their teachers about the best ways to adjust to new grade levels. Today, there are a multitude of platforms we can use to connect and engage our students globally. Here are just a few.

Top 10 sites to help students check their facts - ISTE

Top 10 sites to help students check their facts - ISTE | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Our job as citizens requires more than just being informed. We must also be vigilant about verifying information before posting it on social media. While taking a second look at claims made by politicians and even journalists is a start, we still can’t outsource our brains and our judgment, says Tess Jolls, president of the Center for Media Literacy. “In my view, we have to look as critically at the fact-checking sites as we do the news articles themselves,” she says.

A good fact-checking site uses neutral wording, provides unbiased sources to support its claims and reliable links, says Frank Baker, author of Media Literacy in the K-12 Classroom and creator of the Media Literacy Clearinghouse. He adds, “Readers should apply the same critical thinking/questioning to fact-check sites.”

Here's a rundown of 10 of the top fact- and bias-checking sites to share with your students.
