Christa Wojo's curator insight, July 7, 2014 12:00 PM

My favorite tent is "creative thinking is work." Being creative doesn't mean you have frequent moments of genius or insight out of the blue. It's a process of learning constantly, being resourceful with your knowledge, and being open to using it in novel ways.

Sue Alexander's curator insight, July 7, 2014 3:24 PM

Very down-to-earth approach: I like that in today's edu-buzzword cacophony.

How to create your own iPad recording booth for the classroom.

How to create your own iPad recording booth for the classroom. | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it
The creative power of an iPad in the classroom is limitless with its ability for students to show their learning in a multitude of creative ways that look professional. My students love nothing more than to share their knowledge in the form of an iMovie or by using a digital storytelling tool such as Tellagami or Chatterpix or narrating a keynote presentation. But the number one issue we have in the classroom is the background noise when we record these presentations. There is nothing worse than having a fantastic visual product that is let down by poor audio quality, but in a noisy school situation that is a difficult proposition to overcome. So this year we are using our own homemade iPad recording booths.

mrsjgarcia's curator insight, February 7, 2017 8:48 AM
This is a great idea. Sound is always an issue at our school when recording on iPads. You could even use regular boxes, cover them in cloth and experiment with different materials to line them with as part of a STEAM project.

How do you get employees to learn? Personalize it | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it

In order to keep up with the velocity of the changing workplace and to win the war for today’s talent, organizations must give employees opportunities to learn, grow and develop – and on their terms. Today’s learners, especially millennials, are comfortable with technology, always have a device on hand, and understand that continuous learning and the agility to quickly adapt to change are crucial to career and personal growth.

Applying Maslow's Hierarchy of Needs to Edtech  - Presentation | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it

This paradigm is a useful one for education because it can help to focus us on what education is really for, helping students to realise their own potential and lead fulfilling lives, rather than achieving what can be rather abstract syllabus goals.

The relevance to educational technology is that it can help us decide which tools we choose to use to with our students and how we enable our students to use these tools.

Addressing Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs with Technology

Addressing Maslow’s Hierarchy of Needs with Technology | Teacher Gary | Scoop.it
Technology is way too often given a bad rap by administrators and educators as a distraction or a hazard for students. When technology is integrated intentionally with foresight and with intention of addressing specific growth-oriented goals, it increases the potential to help students learn, develop, and grow in unique ways. It can be used to help address the needs as described by Maslow.

Give your students the opportunity to publish their work to a larger audience, and ignight their interest in writing well! Particularly in genre such as fiction, poetry, and areas of self expression, students need more than their audience of one (you). 
Here is a simple means for sharing beyond you; and if they solicit feedback, they can improve their writing and perhaps find an untapped outlet for self expression!
