Apple just launched 'the absolute best way to teach everyone to code'

Apple just launched 'the absolute best way to teach everyone to code' | Technology for Liz | Scoop.it
Apple has big plans for Swift, the wildly popular programming language it first introduced in 2014.

Swift is already a smash hit: Over 100,000 apps have started using Swift to build at least some of their code, including Twitter, Uber, and Lyft, not least because Apple purpose-built it to be easy to learn.

4 Phases of Inquiry-Based Learning: A Guide For Teachers

4 Phases of Inquiry-Based Learning: A Guide For Teachers | Technology for Liz | Scoop.it

Beth Dichter's curator insight, October 12, 2013 7:20 PM

This indepth post explores inquiry-based learning. The four phases are:

1. Interaction - Big Idea: Dive into engaging, relevant, and credible media forms to identify a “need” or opportunity for inquiry

2. Clarification - Big Idea: Summarizing, paraphrasing, and categorizing learning with teacher or expert support

3. Questioning - Big Idea: Asking questions to drive continued, self-directed inquiry

4. Design - Big Idea: Designing an accessible, relevant, and curiosity-driven action or product to culminate and justify inquiry

Each of the four phases also includes information on tones, student indicators, teacher indicators, appropriate questions and apps.

There are also 4 questions for student-based reflection and ten adjustments you may make as a teacher to adjust to teaching inquiry-based learning.

There are many forms of teaching that incorporate inquiry-based learning including project-based learning, blended learning, and challenge-based learning. You may find your students more engaged in the learning process if you include some components of inquiry-based learning in your classroom.

What makes an outstanding iPad lesson?

What makes an outstanding iPad lesson? | Technology for Liz | Scoop.it

""Technology is in no way a synonym for ‘outstanding.’ But, it is something that can facilitate that outcome again and again. It can seem melodramatic to say things like ‘iPads have changed the world,’ but they have. The very fact that there is a debate within educational establishments across the world as to whether they and their likenesses are the key to unlocking the future of learning should show all the sceptics that technology is not going away. It is something that needs to be embraced and explored. So what does an outstanding iPad lesson look like?"

Kim Flintoff's curator insight, October 4, 2013 9:15 PM

What a furphy - there is no need to lock down student devices - the problem only exists in the eyes of the administrators.  OPen access provides rich authentic learning opportunities - if the students are provided with meaningful, relevantr and engaging learnign experiences the issues of inapporpriate use become a tangential concern relating to a handful of students who can then be offered a chance to learn about why their actions did not serve them well.  Education is alwaysa bout learnign and should never be about policing and punishing.

 

The simple use of the verb "to force" highlights that this is about brutal application of power relations not education.

"Recently I happed upon a cleverly created integration of Bloom’s Taxonomy and Pinterest from the folks at Teachbytes. And as if fated, the same week, I had a conversation with a fabulous theater arts and film teacher, Sarah Yurko, who had shared how she is using Pinterest with her secondary students. Fascinated by the boards and ideas she shared, I asked her to detail her thoughts so I could celebrate these app-tastic ideas with the greater global iClassroom."
