50 Things To Do On The iPad

50 Things To Do On The iPad | On education | Scoop.it

While the iPad is not the savior for learning–or even mobile learning for that matter, if you use one for five minutes it’s easy to see that it is an amazing piece of hardware.

We’ve talked about how to use them in a PBL environment. And how to record ideas with them. And even separated ideas for using the iPad in the classroom by complexity. (Or, see ten of our top iPad posts here.)

Participation Points: Making Student Engagement Visible

Participation Points: Making Student Engagement Visible | On education | Scoop.it
In order to help students become aware of the need for a new level of academic performance, let’s change our own strategies concerning participation points.

Use a new moniker
Instead of participation points, call them engagement points
The goal is to move students from grade seekers (passive regurgitation of information—written or verbal) to knowledge seekers (independent, engaged learners who see, reflect on, and share their thoughts on the complexity of problems/situations)
Balance preparation and participation

Participation can be superficial. Empowerment sggests teachers give power to students. They don't. Engaging is students enter into their learning as responsible and autonomous beings.

Oskar Almazan's curator insight, November 30, 9:07 AM
Have you heard about digital badging? Although it isn’t mainstream yet, the districts that are already doing it say that their teachers are responding quite favorably. First, however, you should be aware of the two types of badges. Regular digital badges are locked into a particular system or platform; open badges are a special type of digital badge that follow the open badges standard and are learner-centric and flexible. “Open badges contain information about the achievement as well as evidence for that achievement and the issuing organization,” says Jeff Bohrer, technical program manager for IMS Global Learning Consortium. “Also, the learner can take an open badge and extract it, email it, or post it on social media.”

Six Myths About Choosing a College Major :: NY Times

Six Myths About Choosing a College Major :: NY Times | On education | Scoop.it
Many colleges ask you to choose a major as early as your senior year of high school, on your admissions application. Yet there’s a good chance you’ll change your mind. The Education Department says that about 30 percent of students switch majors at least once.

Students get plenty of advice about picking a major. It turns out, though, that most of it is from family and friends, according to a September Gallup survey. Only 11 percent had sought guidance from a high school counselor, and 28 percent from a college adviser. And most didn’t think that the advice was especially helpful. Maybe it’s because much of the conventional thinking about majors is wrong.

 

Jim Lerman's insight:

Fascinating article from a variety of perspectives. I could study the full chart (only part of it is shown above) for hours.

15+ Ways of Teaching Every Student to Code (Even Without a Computer)

15+ Ways of Teaching Every Student to Code (Even Without a Computer) | On education | Scoop.it

"According to Code.org, 90 percent of parents in the U.S. want their children to learn computer science—it will be crucial for many jobs in the near future—but only 40 percent of schools teach it. Critics claim that it is mainly the more affluent schools that offer computer science courses, thus denying those who attend poorer schools the chance to learn necessary skills. A focus on STEM is not enough: Code.org also reports that while 70 percent of new STEM jobs are in computing, only 7 percent of STEM graduates are in computer science. It is imperative that savvy schools begin to focus some STEM resources on computer science and programming.

In my opinion, parents of every student in every school at every level should demand that all students be taught how to code. They need this skill not because they’ll all go into it as a career—that isn’t realistic—but because it impacts every career in the 21st-century world. Any country recognizing that will benefit in the long term.

With the following resources, you can teach programming to every student and every age."

5 Strategies to Demystify the Learning Process for Struggling Students - Mind/Shift

5 Strategies to Demystify the Learning Process for Struggling Students - Mind/Shift | On education | Scoop.it
Barbara Oakley’s professional biography does not suggest that she was once a struggling math and science student: She is an engineering professor, author of A Mind For Numbers: How to Excel at Math and Science and Mindshift: Break Through Obstacles to Learning and Discover Your Hidden Potential (which is not affiliated with this MindShift). Oakley co-created Coursera’s most popular course, “Learning How to Learn,” with Terrence Sejnowski, which has enrolled nearly 2 million students. 

But Oakley is a self-described “former math flunky” who “retooled” her brain — and who has since made it her life’s work to help others learn how to learn by explaining some key principles from modern neuroscience.

banner ad design is the best technique to attract the user to the website.

David Alzate's curator insight, December 1, 9:05 AM
For each student, demystification begins with a direct and open conversation about the learning disabilities that brought them to Churchill. This dialogue continues throughout the student’s time here, and is something they carry on with them to high school, college, and their careers. These informal conversations between students, faculty, and parents are supplemented by formal demystification curriculum, which includes one-on-one and class discussions, literature, and student presentations. ts is very important to:
-Talk about why you struggle with certain tasks and what is different about the way your brain works Identifying your strengths, including things you are good at inside and outside the classroom 
-Identify a weakness, or something that is hard for you Developing a list of strategies for overcoming specific challenges Identifying a list of allies who can help you through a challenge

The Future Belongs to the Curious: How Are We Bringing Curiosity Into School?

The Future Belongs to the Curious: How Are We Bringing Curiosity Into School? | On education | Scoop.it

The only rational answer to the conundrum of curiosity is to disengage our educational system from standardized testing and common curricula. Curiosity does not hold up well under intense expectation. Give agency to teachers, with the explicit message to slow down and provide students time to wonder and be curious.
