Timisa Johnson's curator insight, December 8, 2013 3:01 PM

This article was interesting to me because it gave the teacher's point of view of using technology in education. It helped me to see as a future educator more of what they meant by it helps socially and developmentally, but not necessarily academically, like when it came to improving test scores. This made me think about whether it was actually a beneficial tool to use in the classroom since it wasn't necessarily improving test scores. It made me consider whether it should just be used more in homes in order to prepare yourself for school instead of being used in the school itself.

Forget disruptive. Is online learning safe?

Forget disruptive. Is online learning safe? | Technology in Schools and Classrooms | Scoop.it

"Online learning stands to disrupt every corner of traditional education models, through MOOCs, video and new forms of credentialing. There's just one thing standing in its way—security. An online student can simply use information readily available on the internet to ace their course. A student could hypothetically pay someone to take their exam for them without getting caught. Because, on the Internet, it's nearly impossible see what students are doing—unless you're in the business of online proctoring, that is. "

[Infographic] Teacher's Love For Technology is Changing Classrooms

[Infographic] Teacher's Love For Technology is Changing Classrooms | Technology in Schools and Classrooms | Scoop.it

"Gone are the days when teaching meant the traditional use of blackboard, chalk and pencils. Technology has a major role in the 21st century and schools are adopting it across the globe. While at one point in time, adopting technology into the classroom may have been perceived as stressful and forced for teachers and students alike, as it stands now, students aren’t just excited about using technology, teachers are excited and highly capable of utilizing its presence in the classroom. Technology is being seen as an aid to teaching by many teachers and they are enthusiastic about its use in education."

To add to this list, a friend of my recommended a presentation creator called Prezi (http://prezi.com). It's a great alternative to PowerPoint and you can access it through the internet.

Great quality design and infographics are one of the fastest growing trends in social media, and we should definitely be on top of it!

I Went to iPad School! - Technology In Early Childhood

I Went to iPad School! - Technology In Early Childhood | Technology in Schools and Classrooms | Scoop.it

"A co-worker and I attended an iPad conference yesterday. My co-worker called it “iPad School.” I like that term, so I adopted it.  There was so much information to soak up! My biggest take away was a greater understanding of all of the ways we can take the ipad to the next level, and use it to create, not just play games. My favorite part of the conference was at the end of the day, when after introducing us to all sorts of student oriented creating apps, the conference leader set us free to spend some time building our own presentation on the ipad. We were able to create our product, and then look at the products that our classmates had created."
