Why We Changed Our Model of the “8 Essential Elements of PBL” | Blog | Project Based Learning | BIE | Seamless technology integration in the classroom | Scoop.it
BIE’s Essential Project Design Elements contain two new items, both of which are familiar to those who know PBL. One is “authenticity,” which has to do with how real-world the project is. The other is “reflection,” which we have previously coupled with “revision” but now stands on its own; students should reflect on what they’re learning, how they’re learning, and what they have accomplished in a project.

Blended learning: The great new thing or the great new hype?

Blended learning: The great new thing or the great new hype? | Seamless technology integration in the classroom | Scoop.it
If done right, blended learning can be used to support more equitable access to learning resources and discipline-specific expertise. It may also engage students (and teachers) in a variety of online and offline learning activities that differentiate instruction and bring greater diversity to the learning context.

Yes. Important to remember that blended learning isn't a pedagogy, its just a term to describe the point of contact with learning.

Why Technology Will Never Fix Education

The real obstacle is student motivation, and no gadget can create that.

K.I.R.M. God is Business " From Day One"'s curator insight, August 23, 2015 9:01 AM

motivated in school not denied out and just simply not being allowed in!  yes the real obstacles dealt with not those that create more but look indifferentiated as better. I do recall a young man stating he had went to get some fast food while in the place the line went no where and he was thinking what was going on with that. It was funny to find that when it got to his turn the electronic cash register was broken and the cashier could not do the math of the purchases without it right. She had been through high school and all that but was allowed to use calculators instead of doing the math for herself, the new technology way but this young lady using her own abilities to count had a problem adding up dollar items and adding the proper taxes on then subtracting the amount of money she was given for the purchase and then giving back the right amount of  change. There was those that she was giving back more change than was given to pay and of coarse they said nothing but those she gave back less than she should have would yell and ask her how in the he-- she got the job she can count what 1plus1 is and all such. The thing he noticed when it got to be his turn the young lady didn't care anymore and just gave him what ever back but he corrected her told her it was ok and showed her a simple way to add and subtract and that was when she said she had been in school all that time and her calculator was how she learned bykeying the info in and when the cash register broke and she was on her own she just didn't know what to do but she thanked him for caring! enough to not ridicule but show her a way out because she already knew she didn't know how to  count but she didn't know what to do about It but he did. education is a great thing but what are the children learning because there may come a day when technology is not working "ipad" all such then how will the answers be obtained will they be able to maintain a life without technology.

Humans, whether administrators, teachers, or parents, remain the key to improving school.
Laura Rodríguez Vanegas's curator insight, May 2, 2016 9:43 PM
Technology is  just a resource, a tool for  teaching and learning. Technology is not the encharged of doing the teacher´s job.Teachers and learners should know how  to manage technology in order to see results in learning trought it . I agree with the text writer when he says that  technology craate social disparities.It is not only about innovation in learning trough technology. If  the technology is not available for all kinds of students progress in education will not increase.

This is an awesome description of a range of Web 2.0 Tools for teachers to embrace and, of course, there are so many more, as well.  While this transition period to digital learning is providing a plethora of frustrations and challenges for teachers, the massive range of resources that we now have access to, is incredibly exciting.  Finding the time to explore them is an issue but can be assisted by collaboration with colleagues.

Teacher's Guide to Digital Storytelling | Edudemic

Teacher's Guide to Digital Storytelling | Edudemic | Seamless technology integration in the classroom | Scoop.it

by Leah Levy

 

"Teaching critical thinking and creativity in writing can be a difficult task, but it is crucial in preparing students to meet the standards of the Common Core. Digital storytelling is a highly effective technique for doing so, as it requires a clear organization of thought, discipline, and problem solving skills — all of which can translate directly into more traditional essay writing. What’s more, digital storytelling has the added benefit of meeting other Common Core standards relating to proficiency in technical skills. In this article, we’ll take a deeper look at why digital storytelling is an effective approach for teaching writing, and how to do it best."

In this post I wish to go beyond the idea of finding the tech in the standards. Instead in this post it will be important to see how the technology is being integrated in a classroom. Not only should the technology support the standards, but proper integration of technology will ensure productive and effective technology use and integration in the 21st Century Classroom.

Five years ago I was trying every new tech tool to come out. I was glogging with glogster. I was threading with voice thread. And I sure was writing and editing in real-time with Google Docs! But the technology was not transforming me. It was not transforming my classroom, because it was just technology.
