The Perfect Introduction to Portraiture for High School Students - The Art of Ed

Each year, the first lesson I teach my Art II students is called the “Art of Portraiture.” This activity helps students better understand the difference between drawing from life and drawing …

Now on Oracle’s Campus, a $43 Million Public High School :: NY Times

Now on Oracle’s Campus, a $43 Million Public High School :: NY Times | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Tech companies ship all kinds of products to public schools: laptops, online writing programs, learn-to-code lessons and more.

Now Oracle, the business software services giant, is trying the opposite tack: bringing a public charter school to the company.

At its lush campus with a man-made lake here, Oracle is putting the finishing touches on a $43 million building that will house Design Tech High School, an existing charter school with 550 students. The sleek new school building has a two-story workshop space, called the Design Realization Garage, where students can create product prototypes. It has nooks in the hallways to foster student collaboration.

And when the school moves here in early January, Oracle employees will be available to mentor students in skills like business plan development and user-experience design.

“It’s really cool that Oracle is doing this,” said Matthew Silverman, 16, a junior at the school. “We can have more opportunities to learn from experience.”

Fake It To Make It is a simulation-style game where players take on the role of someone creating and distributing fake news for profit. Players learn how misinformation is created, spread, and emotionally targeted, and leave better prepared to be skeptical of misinformation that they encounter in the future.

Fake It To Make It es un juego que, apostando por la terrible actualidad, logra crear un entorno educativo. El jugador tiene que crear y difundir noticias para obtener beneficios, pasando por las etapas de creación, localización de un objetivo emocional, difusión... En definitiva, es un título que prepara al que lo termina para un futuro de escepticismo con las informaciones que reciba.

Want more girls interested in STEM? Retrain music and dance teachers to run computer science lessons, say educators

Want more girls interested in STEM? Retrain music and dance teachers to run computer science lessons, say educators | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Music and dance teachers who are respected by female pupils should be trained to teach computer science to inspire more girls to pursue a career in the technology sector, educators have said.

More than 150 teachers and schoolgirls recently attended an event at Microsoft’s UK headquarters designed to show young women what life at a technology company was like.

Speaking just weeks after the Government used its Budget to announce significant funding to support the training of Computer Science teachers, Cindy Rose, the chief executive of Microsoft UK, kicked off this year’s DigiGirlz by highlighting the lack of women in the technology sector.

Educators told Microsoft at the event that school leaders needed to create more positive role models in computer science and give them modern classrooms to work in if the UK was to encourage more women to pursue a career in science, engineering, technology or maths (STEM).

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

 Curious article from Microsoft. Convincing successful dancers and Musically talented women to covertly convert talent into computer and scienc geeks may not be a winning argument guys....This article shows the limits of the male mind to comprehend the mind and motivations of others. Now the STEAM or just STEM debate may be worth bringing up if Microsoft can show how developing programs and engineering for those creative fields opens creative doors and how creative thinking and skills open door for enginneeering teams?

What Do We Really Mean When We Say ‘Personalized Learning’?

What Do We Really Mean When We Say ‘Personalized Learning’? | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Personalization is often used in the ed-tech community to describe a student moving through a prescribed set of activities at his own pace. The only choice a student gets is what box to check on the screen and how quickly to move through the exercises. For many educators that’s not the true meaning of “personalized learning.”

Worth a read.

Ivon Prefontaine, PhD's curator insight, December 4, 5:12 PM
"Personalization is often used in the ed-tech community to describe a student moving through a prescribed set of activities at his own pace."

How is that different than the traditional process of prescribed set of activities. The only difference is pacing, maybe? What is different is it is an facile and trite new expression that is easy to throw out there and impress people. It is part of a nonsensical neo-liberal agenda.

I subscribe to John Dewey, William Doll, and Ted Aoki and letting students have a voice in their learning in ways that allow them freedom to make choices and still follow the curriculum-as-plan.
Jerry Busone's curator insight, December 5, 7:39 AM

Personalized learning is not learn at your pace and check the box when you are done. Thats control and compliance to learn something. Personalized learning misgiving the learner the  freedom to follow a meaningful line of inquiry, while building the skills to connect, challenge and analyze information and make their assumptions on best way to leverage those skills.
