Creating a Culture where Growth Mindsets for Adults can flourish

Creating a Culture where Growth Mindsets for Adults can flourish | technology education | Scoop.it
A lot of effort goes into helping kids know they can learn more, but less focus has been directed to the growth mindset of educators. Some educators are taking bold new steps, especially in areas of technology use.

 

“As educators, we cannot ask of kids what we are unwilling to do ourselves,” she said. “Students ‘sniff out’ hypocrisy quickly and it is very powerful when we model the willingness to try new things — with the struggles and failures that come along with this.”

Brady said that creating an environment where teachers feel comfortable taking risks requires time — because trust takes time. Just as teachers can sometimes create an environment that inhibits students’ desire to take risks, administrators are “too often part of the problem.”

The way I see it, flipping the classroom is part of blending learning. It's interesting to see main motivations for flipping, what kinds of resources and tools are being used and what the main concerns are. 

Deanne LaRoche's curator insight, May 28, 2017 10:04 PM

I was really surprised to see that 78% of teachers in a school had flipped a class.  I thought it would be much less than this.

Himneet Khangura's curator insight, June 1, 2017 3:46 AM
Flipped learning is becoming popular in schools too. It has been introduced at my learning site and we are encouraged to follow this. I am working on with my mentor to create a video and see how it goes. Students are involved too for trial. Hope it works well.

Drawp for School- A Great Collaborative Tool for Teachers and Students ~ EdTech & MLearning

Drawp for School- A Great Collaborative Tool for Teachers and Students ~ EdTech & MLearning | technology education | Scoop.it
Drawp for School is an excellent creativity and collaboration tool for teachers and students. It provides students with an intuitive blank canvas and a variety of drawing and painting tools to use for visualizing thoughts and for creating rich mixed media content. Students can collaboratively work on a drawing, add sticky notes, text,  or even record audio clips and share them with teachers who, in their part, can provide feedback in the form of comments.

Sharing: A Responsibility of the Modern Educator - User Generated Education @jackiegerstein | technology education | Scoop.it
As a follow-up to that post, I am amplifying my call to action to say that I believe it is the responsibility of every educator in this era of learning to share . . . resources, ideas, success, challenges, ahas, student insights, anything education related.

Sharing takes on many forms. Educators can talk to colleagues, write blogs, tweet, present at conferences – both virtually and face to face, talk to the media, and/or create a media product – video, podcast, photo essay – and post online.

An iPad Toolkit - apps that have transformed my practice - ICT Evangelist

An iPad Toolkit - apps that have transformed my practice - ICT Evangelist | technology education | Scoop.it
n 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.

How To Make Students Better Online Researchers - Teachers With Apps

How To Make Students Better Online Researchers - Teachers With Apps | technology education | Scoop.it

I recently came across an article in Wired Magazine called “Why Kids Can’t Search“.  I’m always interested in this particular topic, because it’s something I struggle with in my middle and high school classes constantly, and I know I’m not alone in my frustrations.

 

Getting kids to really focus on what exactly they are searching for, and then be able to further distill idea into a few key specific search terms is a skill that we must teach students, and we have to do it over and over again. We never question the vital importance of teaching literacy, but we have to be mindful that there are many kinds of “literacies”. An ever more important one that ALL teachers need to be aware of is digital literacy. I could go off in many directions on this, but for the purpose of this post I’m focusing strictly on the digital literacy of searching.

Research, search, and inquiry are different processes. They are each important and overlap, but are still distinct. Research moves knowledge along. Searching is looking for information. Inquiry is posing questions.

This is an interesting approach. I am still not clear whether critical digital literacy is part of critical theory, but it does not seem to be. It should be in the sense that the etymological roots of persona suggests the masks we wear and the roles we play in life. What does that mean when we manage our online persona? Is it a free-for-all?

Developing a Maker Mindset | Creativity Lab – Making in School | technology education | Scoop.it
Fun fact: here at the Creativity Lab, Making isn’t just about making things. Making is also about learning to see the world with new eyes, and developing deeper knowledge and understanding of the world around us. One of the ways we incorporate this idea is through using Agency by Design’s thinking routines. Educators can easily integrate these routines into any subject — even those not typically associated with making, like the Humanities. The first routine, called Parts, Purposes, and Complexities, (PPC) is a great one to start with, and is applicable to physical objects as well as abstract ideas and constructs.

8 Questions to Ask When Designing STEM for Girls (EdSurge News)

8 Questions to Ask When Designing STEM for Girls (EdSurge News) | technology education | Scoop.it
My colleague and I walked into a room filled with a dozen fifth-grade girls snacking on pretzels and huddling around a LEGO robot they had named Kitty. Two of them were laughing about the goggles they had made out of robot wheels, while another small group crowded around a laptop to program wheel rotations. The rest attempted to drive Kitty through what looked like an obstacle course.

It was our first glimpse into life as mentors for the Girl Scouts of Western Washington's LEGO League, a competition that combines programming LEGO Mindstorms robots, team project planning, and creative problem solving to get kids excited about science and technology.

The SAMR Model In 120 Seconds - teachthought

The SAMR Model In 120 Seconds - teachthought | technology education | Scoop.it
This is not a post about the SAMR model (a way of thinking about how to teach with technology that uses an acronym as a mnemonic device)–well, not in any way that’s going to further the conversation around it, or push your thinking about the ins and outs of using it.

In December, we shared a post that used Starbucks as an analogy to illustrate the SAMR model. We also shared a post about using the SAMR model for more effective teaching with apps. We’ve even offered a kind of alternative to the SAMR model with our Stages of #edtech Disruption.

So why share a simple video of the same model we’ve already covered in more detail elsewhere? Because, in lieu of the slightly murky analogy involing cheese and tennis balls, the video does a pretty good job of explaining the idea in less time than it takes to watch Apple make another $18-billion-of-profits-in-a-single-quarter announcement.

Creating Visual Notes on an iPad with ProCreate - Moving at the Speed of Creativity

Creating Visual Notes on an iPad with ProCreate - Moving at the Speed of Creativity | technology education | Scoop.it
This morning I had my first opportunity to use the iPad app Procreate to create visual notes, or sketchnotes. I added my two new creations to a small but growing album on Flickr which I started a couple years ago when I first discovered visual notetaking and wrote the “Visual Notetaking” chapter of Mapping Media to the Curriculum. My sketchnoting skills are still VERY primitive compared to gurus like Carol Anne McGuire, Amy Burvall and Giulia Forsythe. I know I’ll get better by practicing, however, and I’m embracing this opportunity to feel the inadequacy of “a beginner.” I believe in the value and power of visual notetaking for learning, understanding and communicating, and I want to “walk the walk” of someone who also believes in the importance of “playing with media!” Later this afternoon I created “narrated sketchnotes” with my drawings, using iMovie for iPad, since Procreate supports stop-motion style video exports of files. Since I was creating sketchnotes and narrated sketchnotes at Sunday School and during a sermon at our church, I shared these over on my Christian blog, “Eyes Right,” in the post, “Narrated SketchNotes on Romans 14 & Luke 14.”
