Can an Art Teacher Coach a Sports Team? | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
In general, our world lumps “art kids” in a different box than “sports kids.” When you add in media representations of art kids being quirky, awkward loners or misunderstood geniuses, the separation grows more distinct.

Whatever Happened to One-Laptop-Per-Child? | Larry Cuban on School Reform and Classroom Practice

Whatever Happened to One-Laptop-Per-Child? | Larry Cuban on School Reform and Classroom Practice | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Where did the idea of One-Laptop-Per-Child (OLPC) originate?

In the early aughts of the 21st century, the cost of a laptop ran close to $1000. The idea of producing one that would sell for $100 and be sent to children in Latin America, Africa, and Asia who may or may not have had a schoolhouse or teacher caused giggles among tech engineers, entrepreneurs, and venture capitalists. A contemporary of Seymour Papert and head of a center at Massachussetts Institute of Technology (MIT), Nicholas Negroponte believed that cheap, durable, and Internet-connected machines could revolutionize teaching and learning. He told conferees in 2010:

Going Rogue to Teach Code: A school librarian offers strategies for teaching every age group - School Library Journal

Going Rogue to Teach Code: A school librarian offers strategies for teaching every age group - School Library Journal | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

"I am a school librarian who has been teaching coding for a little over six years. In my first job with elementary school students, coding was like a game. I collaborated with our tech teacher to introduce students to coding logic using Kodable, Hopscotch, and Daisy the Dinosaur. Once a week, I dropped in on a fifth grade class to teach them to create games and animations using Scratch. I purchased an array of robots for the library: Ozobots, Dash and Dot, and Spheros, all of which brought coding to life by enacting the programs students wrote for them. Once a year in December, the tech teacher had every student in school participate in Hour of Code. These efforts aimed to show our students that computer coding is fun—and something everyone can do."

9 Lifelong Learning Skills for Beyond School and Where to Work on Them | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it

Aside from teaching core subjects, there are many important skills that are valuable to becoming successful. Here are 9 lifelong learning skills that can come in handy for future endeavours in life beyond school.

60% of 8th Graders Are Not Proficient In Math and Reading

60% of 8th Graders Are Not Proficient In Math and Reading | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
A new report from the National Assessment of Educational Progress revealed that approximately two-thirds of eighth graders in American public schools were not proficient in reading and math last year.

The report, released by the U.S. Department of Education, revealed that 65% of eighth graders in public schools were not proficient in reading and 67% were not proficient in math. The report also revealed that the results were significantly worse in urban districts. CNS News reports:

Only 5 percent of Detroit public-school eighth graders were proficient or better in math. Only 7 percent were proficient or better in reading.

In the Cleveland public schools, only 11 percent of eight graders were proficient or better in math and only 10 percent were proficient or better in reading.

In the Baltimore public schools, only 11 percent were proficient or better in math and only 13 percent were proficient or better in reading.

Monica S Mcfeeters's insight:

Schools would better to spend money on reading and math specialist rather than test...While test can help direct content they do not teach it. These state examines offer no personalized  specific feedback on exactly why or what was failed...redirection is a roll of the dice. Wonder how many schools have lost specialist services paying for these expensive test? Specialist test and then target teaching services in all twelve grades.  Still these numbers seem very extreme...After State and high stakes exams and holding students in the 3rd grade until they READ LIKE 3RD GRADERS IT SEEMS THE PRESSURE PUT ON EVERYONE WOULD HAVE GOTTEN BETTER RESULTS AT ALL LEVELS. May be well monitored self pace programs like SRA programs would be better than holding people back. Affordable after school and summer school programs are also a good idea....The program might be re-adapted  with a different, more project based outcome the basic instruction leads towards.

Let Teens Lead in Makerspaces - School Library Journal

Let Teens Lead in Makerspaces - School Library Journal | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
THE 3-D PRINTER in the Peabody (MA) Institute Library’s basement Creativity Lab might be what draws teens to the space, but it’s not always what they spend the most time using.

One group of boys is fascinated by the sewing machines. “They come in because of the tech, and then they get involved in the [other] things,” says Cate Merlin, teen and special projects librarian for the library’s main branch.

At Dover (AR) High School, library media specialist Janet Kanady has seen a similar response. “We came close to having enough kids knitting to form our own club,” Kanady says. As it turned out, they were more interested in an old electric typewriter. “They are completely fascinated by it.”

It’s hard to predict what will capture teens’ attention in a makerspace, so flexibility is key with this age group. Kanady also finds that a hands-off approach works best for students who use her library’s “tinker spot.” She says, “They have always amazed me on the things they come up with. Maybe that is a part of the appeal of it. They aren’t forced to do it just one way.”

Social Media Overload? Sites & Apps to Help Manage Your Connectedness | Knowledge Quest | Technology in Art And Education | Scoop.it
Social media overload is real. Being a connected educator can be overwhelming, especially if you have been given a ton of information at once. Do you ever wonder how colleagues stay so connected and make it look so seamless? Let me let you in on a little secret. They all use sites and/or apps to manage their connectedness. Some apps, like Instagram, allow you to set up this feature in the app. Other times, using a different site and/or app is more ideal.

I’m sharing a few of my favorite sites and apps to manage my connections, and I’ll also share one that came up repeatedly when I asked my PLN for their favorite social media management apps.
