Are Teachers of Tomorrow Prepared to Use Innovative Tech?

Are Teachers of Tomorrow Prepared to Use Innovative Tech? | Karen Gaba | Scoop.it

By Katrina Schwartz |

 

With a new generation of teachers coming into the work force, there’s a discrepancy between what principals expect of teachers-in-training and what they’re actually learning in school.

A new Project Tomorrow report surveying principals concluded that they want to hire new teachers with creative ideas about how technology can be leveraged to create authentic and differentiated learning experiences. But student-teachers report that their tech training focuses only on simple management tools. At the same time, the report concludes that those who have the biggest influence on new teachers — veteran educators —  don’t always embrace new ways of using technology to engage students.

We need reflect on how ed tech shifts our pedagogical practices. Minimum is individualized learning.

 

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, December 18, 2014 7:17 AM

I think most future teachers are ill-equipped to use technology effectively primarily because they don't have the resources nor the opportunity to learn how to use technology--"innovative" or otherwise--in their own learning.


"Principals want new teachers to know how to use technology to create authentic learning experiences for students (75 percent) and how to leverage technology to differentiate instruction (68 percent) before they apply for a position at their school." It doesn't help that many principals might think they know what these terms and phrases mean but they might know really know the implications for making sure teachers have the best possible skills and the best possible resources.

15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers

15 Lesson Plans For Making Students Better Online Researchers | Karen Gaba | Scoop.it

"Google is usually one of the first places students turn to when tasked with an assignment. Whether it’s for research, real-time results, or just a little digital exploration … it’s important they know how to properly Google. Lucky for teachers (and students, of course), Google has a handy set of lesson plans that are just waiting to be unleashed upon the leaders of tomorrow.

 

"While I understand there’s a LOT more to research than just Googling, it’s important to note that this is where nearly all students start their research. Therefore, it’s a critical skill if they’re going to start down the right paths.

 

"Below are 15 lesson plans courtesy of Google designed to make students better online researchers. They’re organized by difficulty and meant to help students (and everyone) become better online searchers."

Depuis 3 ans, la CNIL et Inria travaillent ensemble pour comprendre l'écosystème des smartphones. Les résultats du projet Mobilitics montrent que les accès aux données personnelles sont à la fois massifs et peu visibles pour les utilisateurs. Les éditeurs d'applications et leurs fournisseurs de services ou partenaires commerciaux doivent donc intensifier leur effort d'information des utilisateurs, sans s'abriter derrière des contraintes techniques. En la matière, les éditeurs de système d'exploitation pour smartphones et tablettes (Apple, Google, Microsoft, Mozilla) sont les premiers responsables. A ce titre, ils doivent permettre aux utilisateurs de mieux maîtriser leurs données personnelles.

Appel à comm : Anglais de spécialité, GERAS, Toulon (juin 2015)

Le 55e congrès de la SAES nous invite à réfléchir sur la thématique de « L’engagement ». Or, malgré

leurs efforts, les responsables de l’atelier ASP-GERAS reconnaissent honnêtement qu’ils n’ont pu

problématiser cette notion, de façon suffisamment satisfaisante à leurs yeux, pour lui faire jouer

un rôle stimulant pour la réflexion en anglais de spécialité.

 

À défaut, et en suivant une suggestion du texte de cadrage du congrès, il ne leur semble pas totalement

illégitime de déplacer la notion et de la faire passer du domaine de recherche aux chercheurs eux-mêmes

en les sollicitant dans leur engagement. Nous les invitons donc à se pencher sur les problématiques en

anglais de spécialité qui mériteraient qu’on s’y engage. Dans tous nos champs d’études, la question

peut concerner des démarches déjà largement abouties, comme des intuitions qui n’en sont encore qu’à

l’état de projet mais qui semblent porteuses de promesses. Inversement, certaines directions de travail

ont peut-être perdu de leur pertinence et appellent donc au désengagement.

Conference on FL creation and innovation: Toulouse, Dec 2015

Over the past decades in the field of language didactics there has been an increase in the quantity of research being carried out on the theme of creativity in the teaching/ learning process. In parallel, and mainly due to developments in technology, there have also been an increased number of studies in innovative pedagogies in relation to the design and creation of learning strategies as well as their assessment. But what unites these two concepts, creativity and innovation, though it may seem obvious to teachers – creativity being the engine and innovation the result -, it has not been sufficiently explored from a scientific perspective.

 

Proposals for presentations can be theoretical reflections on either both concepts individually or on the relation between them both. Proposals can also take the form of field research. All proposals must address the issue of teaching and learning foreign languages.

Tablet computers in '70% of schools' - BBC News

Tablet computers in '70% of schools' - BBC News | Karen Gaba | Scoop.it
Almost 70% of primary and secondary schools in the UK now use tablet computers, according to research.

But the study says there is no clear evidence of academic improvement for pupils using tablet devices.

The study, commissioned by education technology charity Tablets for Schools, looked at a representative sample of 671 state and independent schools.

Many pupils reported that they took an internet-connected device to bed to continue social media conversations.

The rapid growth of tablet computers in the classroom was one of the ways in which the study found that young people are immersed in technology at school and home.
