5 Real Life Blockchain Implementations Outside of Cryptocurrency

5 Real Life Blockchain Implementations Outside of Cryptocurrency | iPads in the French (FLE) classroom | Scoop.it

What do Pied Piper and blockchain tools have in common? Both are always “coming soon.”

By now most of us are familiar with blockchain, the technology underpinning cryptocurrencies like Bitcoin and Ethereum. Outside of cryptocurrency, blockchain has many purported use cases in scenarios that require an immutable ledger.

Rhetoric has elevated blockchain to godly status, labeling it as a bleeding edge technology poised to disrupt all facets of life, from voting, to smart guns, health data, stock trading, international shipping, and beyond.

We’ve seen a ton of other innovative blockchain ideas too, yet many are unproven or simply hypothetical. So, the question is, what projects are successfully implementing blockchain in practice?

In this article we’ll strive to separate fact from fiction by showcasing 5 living projects that are actually using blockchain, with real world results. We’ll gauge the viability of such projects, and see how proven use may affect the global climate and attitude toward blockchain adoption.

The dying art of storytelling in the classroom - The Conversation

The dying art of storytelling in the classroom - The Conversation | iPads in the French (FLE) classroom | Scoop.it

"Storytelling may be as old as the hills but it remains one of the most effective tools for teaching and learning. A good story can make a child (or adult) prick up their ears and settle back into their seat to listen and learn.

But despite the power a great story can have, storytelling has an endangered status in the classroom – partly due to a huge emphasis on “active learning” in education. This is the idea that pupils learn best when they are doing something – or often, “seen to be doing” something.

Any lesson in which a teacher talks for 15 or more uninterrupted minutes would be regarded today as placing pupils in too passive a role. Indeed, even in English lessons teachers now very rarely read a whole poem or book chapter to pupils, something which now worries even OFSTED."

​Brain Science and Education: How Much Should Teachers Know? (EdSurge News)

​Brain Science and Education: How Much Should Teachers Know? (EdSurge News) | iPads in the French (FLE) classroom | Scoop.it
Jasselle Cirino’s classroom might surprise those accustomed to traditional lectures. Instead of being told to sit quietly and listen, her first graders absorb material through physical movement, vocal exercises and group activities meant to indulge in students’ tendencies to socialize, move and speak.

“We’re teaching to use multiple parts of the brain to better engage students and retain more information,” says Cirino, a former classroom teacher now training for Reading Recovery, a nonprofit tutoring program for first-grade students.

The approach is something Cirino and other educators refer to as “Whole Brain Teaching.” It involves techniques—like assigning arm gestures to instructional content to engage students’ motor cortex, or call and response phrases that grab attention and tap into students’ prefrontal cortex—specifically designed to tickle different parts of the brain while learning. And it's becoming more popular among scientists and educators alike, who believe teachers—and therefore students—can benefit from a better understanding of how the brain works.

Yet many typical teacher training programs today don’t offer much training or exposure to neuroscience, which begs the question: What should teachers know about the brain?

NAIS - 20 Simple-yet-meaningful Things Educators Can Do Every Day

NAIS - 20 Simple-yet-meaningful Things Educators Can Do Every Day | iPads in the French (FLE) classroom | Scoop.it
It’s taken a while, but I’ve finally come to the realization that there is no one “big thing” that will suddenly transform a teacher into one of those wise educators that they make movies about. But I’ve also learned something else in that time. It’s often the small things that teachers do for their students that end up leaving a lasting impression.  

So, as I prepare to dive into my 20th year of teaching, I share 20 simple-yet-meaningful things teachers can do every day to improve the classroom atmosphere for themselves and their students.

This article provide 20 very interesting tips educators can implement every day in order to create a good atpmosphere inside the classroom. It mentions some aspects regarding to teachers' attitude, flexibility to change the lesson plan when something goes bad and provide learners different types of activities. 

I think the majority of them are very interesting; however, they can change depending the context you are changing.

What the Heck Is Inquiry-Based Learning?

What the Heck Is Inquiry-Based Learning? | iPads in the French (FLE) classroom | Scoop.it
Inquiry-based learning is more than asking a student what he or she wants to know. It’s about triggering curiosity. And activating a student’s curiosity is, I would argue, a far more important and complex goal than the objective of mere information delivery.

Nevertheless, despite its complexity, inquiry-based learning can be somehow easier on teachers, too. True, it’s seemingly easier because it transfers some responsibilities from teachers to students, but it’s really easier because releasing authority engages students.

Teachers who use inquiry-based learning combat the “dunno” -- a chronic problem in student engagement. 

Let’s face it, when you ask a student something like, “What do you want to know about _______?” you are often met with a shrug, or a, “dunno.” Inquiry-based learning, if front-loaded well, generates such excitement in students that neurons begin to fire, curiosity is triggered, and students can’t wait to become experts in answering their own questions.

The Transcendent Nature of Sir Ken Robinson in Global Education

The Transcendent Nature of Sir Ken Robinson in Global Education | iPads in the French (FLE) classroom | Scoop.it
Sweat slowly trickled down my temple. My feet were still racing yet my body lie in wait for the doors to open. Camera crew ready? Check! My sales pitch? No. I had gone through every scenario I could think of and yet I still felt drastically unprepared for my pitch.

My pitch to the world-renowned Sir Ken Robinson.

I was at the ASCD educational conference waiting for keynote speaker Sir Ken Robinson to arrive. My hope was to capture his thoughts about global education without stumbling over my words. This was the biggest and most prominent voice in education and I was seconds away from my chance.

As we waited, backstage, the doors opened with sparkling L.A. sunshine flashing through the opening, amidst the backdrop of a blackout of florescent exhibit hall lighting, revealing the silhouette we have all come to know.

It was the Sir Ken Robinson!
