Dozens of Free Resources for Keeping Academic Skills Sharp Over the Summer Months — Emerging Education Technologies | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

This time of year I get a lot of requests for resources to help students keep up their school skills over the long summer months. I searched the web for the best resources, tips, and techniques I could find. I focused on free resources to help keep it, well … free :). These resources cover a range of academic subjects and skills.

The Daring Librarian: Makerspace Starter Kit | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

We have, however, recently expanded upon our Makerspace offerings thanks to being inspired by several of my librarian friends in our amazing #TLChat PLN! Kids can come in during lunch or when they've finished their work to explore, craft, and create in the Library Media Center.


I re-purposed 4 empty study carrels for this Makerspace center at the top corner of our library.  The grouping includes a Lego Creation Station, a Duct Tape Craft Cubby, and a Makey Makey Coding Corner."

Why Technology Will Never Fix Education

Why Technology Will Never Fix Education | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

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

Dorothy Retha Cook '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.

In this Emerging Education Technologies post, Kelly Walsh offers his personal experience of a MOOC as a learner - the Coursera course in Assessment and Teaching of 21st Century Skills.


"As it happens, I am responsible for a Strategic Goal at the college that requires us to more closely examine how effectively we are incorporating 21st century goals into our programs, and assessment will certainly play a key role in that. We are also considering whether or not Coursera’s offerings might provide affordable, convenient, quality professional development for our faculty.

Five Big Changes to the Future of Teacher Education

Five Big Changes to the Future of Teacher Education | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Getty In the book Teaching 2030 by Barnett Berry and 12 classroom experts, the authors pinpoint specific skills educators will need to teach in the schools of tomorrow.

 

They say teachers must be prepared to find and adapt new technologies to engage the digital generation, as well as work across traditional subject areas using project learning.

 

They must be able to use data and evidence to inform their practice and know how to work in both virtual learning environments and brick-and-mortar schools. And they’ll need to collaborate with community-based organizations and work in schools that provide all kinds of other services for students and their families.

 

Along those lines, Berry has outlined five changes he believes need to be made to the future of teacher education.

The Right Content Marketing Strategy – Where Does it Begin? | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Even though the concept of Content Marketing has been evolving over the last two years, most of the businesses still feel that the premise behind investing in content marketing is still spreading the sales and marketing messages and branding.

 

Even though you can achieve those goals with content marketing, there’s a lot more to content marketing than simply delivering marketing and sales messages.

 

The way most content marketers see it, the goal behind content marketing should be to provide information to your customers – answer their questions and doubts about your products or services without pitching them a sales message.

 

A right content marketing strategy begins with this step – getting the definition of content marketing right....

Flipped learning is more than just having students do homework during the school day. It’s more than just putting the onus on students to teach themselves. In fact, it’s neither of those things.

Memorizers are the lowest achievers and other Common Core math surprises - The Hechinger Report

Memorizers are the lowest achievers and other Common Core math surprises - The Hechinger Report | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"It’s time to debunk the myths about who is good in math, and Common Core state standards move us toward this worthy goal. Mathematics and technology leaders support the standards because they are rooted in the new brain and learning sciences.


All children are different in their thinking, strength and interests. Mathematics classes of the past decade have valued one type of math learner, one who can memorize well and calculate fast.


Yet data from the 13 million students who took PISA tests showed that the lowest achieving students worldwide were those who used a memorization strategy – those who thought of math as a set of methods to remember and who approached math by trying to memorize steps. The highest achieving students were those who thought of math as a set of connected, big ideas."
