How to Minimize Digital Classroom Distractions

How to Minimize Digital Classroom Distractions | Tech help | Scoop.it

As pointed out by Tom Daccord on Edudemic, when “the activity is engaging and challenging, there is an authentic audience, and prescribed time limits, students won’t mess around.” Design your lessons by ensuring that the length and intensity of your discussion are appropriate to the range of your students’ attention spans.

The ideas are as follows: flipbooks, mindmaps, photoquotes, infographics, flashcards and social bookmarking. I like this article a great deal because it in itself is a great example of using technology to design a visually appealing presentation that presents information in a more creative and user-friendly way.

5 Tips for Classroom Management with Mobile Devices

5 Tips for Classroom Management with Mobile Devices | Tech help | Scoop.it

Classroom management is a challenging skill which I consistently strive to improve on a regular basis. Often, people believe that managing a classroom that has employed technology requires a whole new approach and skill set. However, I have found that many traditional methods of classroom management readily translate to the technological rich schoolroom – with some slight modification.

ThingLink Custom Icon Sets are a new feature available to teachers with premium accounts. They offer  a whole new layer of opportunities for using interactive images for teaching and learning. Think of Custom Icon Sets as visual labels that can be used to further define an image and provide a glimpse of the type of content to be explored behind the link. They are fun to create and have many great uses in the classroom.

ThingLink Teacher Challenge: Digging Deeper Into Vocabulary | ThingLink Blog | Tech help | Scoop.it

Week 3 of the ThingLink Teacher Challenge invites participants to design an interactive image for teaching vocabulary. 

 

Digging deeper into vocabulary means more than just sending students to a dictionary to look up the definition. Students must interact with  new vocabulary.  Opportunities to use words, explore them within different contexts and create non-linguistic representations of words will help them do more than just memorize words. ThingLink is well-suited for the task.

Some teachers still think of technology as "the future of classrooms", however, these innovations are already playing an important role in education. As the article says, "It's not about technology; it's about sharing knowledge and information, communicating efficiently, building learning communities and creating a culture of professionalism in schools.".

The design of the school was based on what actually happens when we learn, a difference from traditionally built school buildings.

An interesting approach to early education, with a focus on creativity and innovation. Too early to tell, but initial results (in maths) seem to indicate positive results -- that is, above the Swedish national average. The title is a bit misleading, as pupils are not "digital"; however, the actual learning activities are supported by technology.
