Disruptive Innovations in Learning by Stephen Downes

In this presentation I outline the characteristics of innovation and consider them in the light of educational technology. I survey some major innovations and question them from the perspective of idea, benefit and execution. Then I look at the changing nature of benefits in education and take learning beyond innovation and into transformation.

5 Lessons To Learn From Minecraft In Education @teachthought

What Minecraft Can Teach You About Pedagogy

by TeachThought Staff

Minecraft is a simple, clumsy-looking little game full of blocky graphics and unclear terms of play. It is essentially a giant sandbox of digital legos that players can do with what they wish–tear stuff down, dig holes, or build dizzying towers of complex design and architecture.

And it’s a perfect analogue for what’s possible in learning.

First off, let’s be clear–it’s a huge, huge hit. Minecraft has sold over 20,000,000 copies to date. It is available for iPad, Android, PC, and Xbox (though sadly, not the PS3), and is quickly becoming a cultural phenomenon. What makes it popular with children is tempting

I decided to share this article to all my fellows, as it proposes very interesting tools to work with young learners and E learning, and it is of utmost importance to teach our kids how to use technology appropriately. We cannot reject the use of technology, we need to accept it, confront it, and better teach our learners how to use it

The apps we have curated for you today allow you to add annotations to your videos on the go. As a teacher, you can use these applications to enrich your videos with illustrative content to guide your students understanding and engage them in the learning process. The apps differ in what they offer to users but some of the things you can do with them include: adding text, hyperlinks or images to your videos, add soundtracks or voiceovers, stitch together various clips into a single movie and many more.

Free Technology for Teachers: ClassHook Helps You Find Educational Video Clips :: Richard Byrne

Free Technology for Teachers: ClassHook Helps You Find Educational Video Clips :: Richard Byrne | taccle2 | Scoop.it
It is not a secret that I love using video clips to enhance or develop a lesson plan. In fact, I've often joked that I became a teacher so that I could run the filmstrip projector (if you get that reference, you were in school in the 80's or earlier). Even with great video libraries like YouTube and Next Vista for Learning finding the right video to illustrate a point can take a while. That's where a service like ClassHook can be helpful.

ClassHook is a new service that seeks to help you find video clips to support your lessons. The clips that you'll find in ClassHook come from well-known television shows and movies. You can find video clips on ClassHook by selecting a topic and browsing through the collection. ClassHook also has a search tool that allows you to enter a term and look for related movie and television show clips.

Best Minecraft apps for your obsessed kid! Smart Apps for Kids

Best Minecraft apps for your obsessed kid! Smart Apps for Kids | taccle2 | Scoop.it
Dear daughter: I know you find this hard to believe, but there are apps out there that you would enjoy that are NOT related to Minecraft. What? What's that you say? You have no interest in anything that's unrelated to Minecraft? Such as dinner or the dog or YOUR MOTHER? Sigh. If you can't beat 'em, join 'em. 

If your kid, like mine, is completely obsessed with all things Minecraft, here's a list of apps he or she might find interesting. And if you have yet to introduce your kid to this addictive and educational game, start with the Pocket Edition and then jump head-first into the Minecraft well. Be warned: it's deep. VERY deep. And a bit on the expensive side -- most of these apps have an up-front price, as well as in-app purchases for extras. But what price peace and quiet?

An iPad toolkit – 29 iPad Apps that promote good learning - @ICTEvangelist | taccle2 | Scoop.it

"In case you hadn’t noticed, I’m quite a fan of the iPad (the Lollipop Nexus 9’s not too bad either). Not because of its design or because its by Apple or any of that, but because of its keen heritage in the learning arena. Any one who knows me will tell you that I am not one for using tech for tech’s sake, despite my evangelist moniker. Use of technology in a cross curricular sense should be measured and done with consideration for the best potential learning outcomes.

With all that said, I’ve been doing this for quite some time now and I thought it time that I shared some of the Apps that have stuck by me or have struck me for their ease of use and impact upon learning in the classroom."

JoAnn Salvisberg-Smith's curator insight, December 15, 2015 1:47 AM

Interesting point about the integration of other languages and cultures into the global dialog (or is it the lack thereof?).

Web 2.0 for ELT's curator insight, December 15, 2015 11:41 PM

This should be a warning to be taken rather seriously: 

"The lack of language diversity on the web, according to some activists, is aiding in making lesser known languages obsolete.

These languages, markers of culture and identity, are a way to construct a collective sense of belonging, providing a direct connection to history. When languages die, a part of culture dies — and preservation of culture is an important global goal."

Since then I have compiled a few other app lists:

Earth Science and Geography Apps
But I do think it's time I update my original post. Or at least added to it. Most of the apps and tools on the original list are still around, but there are a whole lot more that are useful.

Learning and Sharing with Ms. Lirenman: Show What You Know with iPad: Using an iPad to Create and Self Assess in the Early Years

Learning and Sharing with Ms. Lirenman: Show What You Know with iPad: Using an iPad to Create and Self Assess in the Early Years | taccle2 | Scoop.it
I'm often approached by educators looking for the best iPad app.  While my students have their favourite go to apps, what works for my students may not work for theirs.  In fact even my own students can't decide which app is best because each has their own preference depending on what they are trying to do. It's far less about the specific app, then what that app can do to show learning.

For me, the beauty of the iPad and more specifically the apps available for it, is that it allows my students to create, and show their learning in ways that work best for them.  For this reason I have created an iTunes U course titled Show What You Know with iPad: Using an iPad to Create and Self Assess in the Early Years.  This is a free course but does require an iOS device to access it through iTunes U . It can be downloaded onto  an iPod, iPhone, or iPad.

 

This FREE iTunes U course explores five open-ended creative apps including Skitch, Popplet, Book Creator, Draw and Tell, and Explain Everything. The course walks the reader  through how to use these specific apps and provides examples of how the various apps can been used in a variety of content areas.   The course makes you think about how these apps can work best for your students' learning."

5 Powerful Ways to Save Time as a Teacher :: Cult of Pedagogy :: Jennifer Gonzalez | taccle2 | Scoop.it
Lack of time is a huge problem for teachers everywhere. There’s just never enough time for teachers to do their work well AND have a healthy, balanced life outside the classroom. For as long as I have been working to serve teachers and help you do your work better, time was always the one problem I couldn’t solve. I could share powerful teaching strategies, classroom management tips, game-changing tech tools, but when it came to really nailing the time shortage, I came up empty-handed.

Until now.
