Why Do Students Pick Teacher A or Teacher B? Who Would You Pick?

Why Do Students Pick Teacher A or Teacher B? Who Would You Pick? | technological education, applied linguistics | Scoop.it
What if we asked our students about the type of work they would prefer to do while in class? It may reveal a lot about what choices they would make for assignments and activities and why they make these choices.

Very enlightening!

Gary Harwell's curator insight, March 21, 2015 9:39 AM

Great article. Teacher B would definitely be more fun to learn from and teach as well, but.... Student A has a point about the testing. Maybe we should revaluate testing.

Andrea Stewart's curator insight, March 21, 2015 4:49 PM

We must not forget...the focus is not only what tne Ss want,  but what is best for Ss. Love the quote at the end.

50 Of The Best Video Games For Learning In 2015 - TeachThought

50 Of The Best Video Games For Learning In 2015 - TeachThought | technological education, applied linguistics | Scoop.it

"We’ve discussed the merits and utility of video games in the classroom before, so we won’t beleaguer the point. If you’re interested in the possibility of video games for learning–that is, teaching and learning with video games to master both academic and non-academic content–than the following collection may be of interest to you.

We’ve discussed before the logistics of how to teach with video games (especially for non-mobile games). What exactly this looks like on a daily basis in your classroom depends on the reality of your classroom: Available technology, WiFi access and bandwidth, grade level, content area, your comfort level with games, and so on.

But if this an area you’re interested in learning more about, we thought a collection of the best video games for learning–that is, those we’d want our own children playing for their varied utility in teaching and/or learning–might be useful. "

This prediction is bang on target. There is no running away from social media. It is not an option anymore. The future  is where the technology is and it is going to integrate right into your life. There would hardly be a difference between social media and real life. 

The face of education will change in this new world. It will diminish the boundaries and people from all parts of the world will come together and make learning fun .

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, September 11, 2013 12:00 PM

The term digital native is an oversimplication and is not overly accurate. Research in Australia and England are showing power users in undergrad programs make up about 14% of the students. What about the rest? One thing about Prensky's work is he does acknowledge that technology has to fit with school and learning in an integrated manner.

 

As I read the article, I realized this concerns about the pace of technology have been with us for some time, perhaps since time began. Hannah Arendt argued the pace of technology had outpaced our ability to speak about it coherently in the 1950's.

We’ve been discussing blended learning in the Edudemic Magazine for several months but I had been struggling to find a video that helps explain what it actually is and why you should care.

Then I happened upon one of the startups I’ve been watching. Education Elements has a terrific page along with a video to describe exactly what blended learning is, what it hopes to achieve, and what it looks like.

I’ve embedded the video and some helpful snippets of information below. Be sure to check out the page for more information!

How Technology Has Changed Our Idea of ‘Knowledge,’ and What This Means for Schools

How Technology Has Changed Our Idea of ‘Knowledge,’ and What This Means for Schools | technological education, applied linguistics | Scoop.it

The fact that knowledge is no longer fixed, but constantly evolving, and the speed at which new knowledge appears online have contributed to our sense of “information overload,” Weinberger said. And that leads to another way that our evolving sense of knowledge is transforming how we learn: We must learn to accept that true mastery is impossible.

The Trouble with Testing | DMLcentral

The Trouble with Testing | DMLcentral | technological education, applied linguistics | Scoop.it

Learning research consistently shows that an emphasis on test scores does not necessarily lead to gains in academic performance. Perhaps learning, with its long-term gains and diffuse experiences does not lend itself well to an economic model. Instead of focusing on test scores at the elementary and secondary levels, why not take a longer-term view? Why public education? What are our true goals for teaching and learning? When pressed, most politicians will state that the long-term goals of education are to develop a citizenry that maximizes contributions to society and economy; yet, our standard test measures typically seem unrelated to the higher-order qualities that lead to such engaged citizens.

This article makes some good and concise points against standardized testing, but it doesn't really say anything we don't think already.  What we really need now are new evaluation and assessment tools based on updated goals for education.

Tracy Mehoke (梅恬溪)'s comment, July 22, 2013 5:56 AM
I appreciated the mention that despite ranking in the middle on PISA tests, the USA continues to rank highly in global innovation. What exactly are we trying to measure again ;P ?
