Five Myths About Classroom Technology (And What To Do, Instead) (EdSurge News) | Library | Scoop.it

Classroom technology is everywhere. Schools are filled with shiny, interactive devices, and new gadgets and apps flood the market every day. Teachers in districts with limited funding for technology are turning to crowdfunding sources to obtain technology for their classrooms.

Teachers are increasingly attempting to reach all of their students, each of whom have distinct learning needs, with the right learning experience at the right time. Having effective adaptive software turbocharges those efforts and can provide a realistic pathway to accomplish that goal.

Banning and unbanning phones in schools

Banning and unbanning phones in schools | Library | Scoop.it
When it comes to mobile phones and the education sector, things aren't so simple, and answers vary considerably by place -- and are changing. In some countries and schools, mobile phones are not allowed at all for students (and in some cases for teachers as well) and/or their use is limited to certain circumstances inside (and in some instances even outside) of school. In other places, phones are allowed with few restrictions. In yet other places, long time bans on phones are being reversed. Even where bans are in place, phones are still to be found in schools, for better and for worse, and they are used for a variety of purposes (again, for better and for worse).

Mobile Phone use in schools an interesting discussion
Justin Morgan's curator insight, May 16, 2016 4:53 PM

The use of cell phones in schools has been a major controversy in the past years. When I was in high school, approximately 4 years ago, cell phones were not permitted. Times have changed. People rely on this technological device for so many things. Cell phones allow children and parents to stay in touch, especially in the case of an emergency. I think they are very important. It is understandable that people feel otherwise. Cell phones can be extremely distracting in a learning environment. I feel that the positive aspects of allowing cell phones in school outweigh the negatives. This article was one that I was truly able to relate to. At this point in our technological world, cell phones are a part of our every day lives and I feel it’s wrong for schools to permit them.

A healthy dose of scepticism

A healthy dose of scepticism | Library | Scoop.it

I want my students to be sceptics. I believe that in the present age scepticism is more important than ever. Easy access to information, ease of publishing, scams and confidence tricksters combine to create a climate where blind trust is dangerous for our security, our finances and our knowledge bases. For students of all ages a healthy dose of scepticism is much needed not just so they may reveal falsehoods but to allow them to  discover new truths.

Teaching the Teachers

Teaching the Teachers | Library | Scoop.it

Recent education reforms have urged teachers to foster collaboration, debate and reflection among students, in order to develop cognitive processes like those called for in the new standards. Ironically, districts rarely apply these same learning techniques to developing teachers. At the same time, teacher’s performance is increasingly tied to their students. This is a disparity that must be corrected.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, May 20, 2016 11:12 AM
Teaching teachers is a key to the future of schooling. It is not enough to simply reform what we do and move deck chairs around a sinking ship. Teachers exist in transformational pedagogic relationships with students. It is a myth that we only play dual roles with students. We engage in multiple roles in living a full and complete life that informs who we are as teachers and learners.
