Schools are failing our children simply because they are technophobes - Telegraph

Schools are failing our children simply because they are technophobes - Telegraph | Social media and Learning | Scoop.it

Teachers still stand up in front of pupils and read out from their own lesson plans; kids still turn up to classrooms, sit behind desks and listen, taking notes; assessments remain based on reports filed by teachers; exams are at set times, once a year. There is no systematic use of the internet, software or gaming technology to aid learning, no proper data analysis to monitor pupils’ progress and to understand better how to convey understanding, no automation, no economies of scale, no productivity gains, and no real progress.

Why is change so difficult in the culture of schooling? Is the passionate redesigning of learning spaces going to change teacher mindsets? 

John Laing's comment, July 22, 2013 7:09 PM
The problem is compulsory schooling.
Library Staff's curator insight, October 21, 2013 6:45 PM

Change has to happen in teacher mindset in order for there to be an impact in the classroom.

What To Know About The Present And Future Of Mobile Apps - Edudemic | Social media and Learning | Scoop.it
Its amazing to think that the word 'app', at least in the reference that we understand it presently, hasn't actually been around all that long. This look at mobile apps is just plain crazy.

Edutopia - Redefining the Writing Process with iPads

Edutopia - Redefining the Writing Process with iPads | Social media and Learning | Scoop.it

"Take a moment to think about how you learned to write. What steps did you go through? What was your process?

 

Most of us learned the same core set of skills on paper: organize, draft, edit, revise, turn in. Our teachers then marked up what we had handwritten or typed, and returned our writing. From there, maybe it ended up tacked to a bulletin board, stuck on the refrigerator door, stuffed into a notebook, or tossed in the nearest trash can. Let's call this Writing 1.0."

Digital writing is an integral part of the writing process.  Another way to enjoy writing;)

harloff's curator insight, November 28, 2013 7:29 AM

Touch technologies can bring haptics back to the process of writing - thus still beeing digital. We have seen great advances in how we consume content, but less in how we create it.

Richard Whiteside's curator insight, November 28, 2013 8:04 AM

Writing 2.0, so they say.

I've used Kidblog with my middle school students, and wouldn't hesitate to use it with younger students as well.
WhizGuide's curator insight, July 17, 2013 6:15 AM

It is important to spend about the same amount of time creating the content to share the article on social media as well.This is very important.

Alison Rostetter's curator insight, July 19, 2013 7:07 AM

one day, I'll find time to look at all this.  But not today!
