How to manage Cell Phone use in your Classroom

How to manage Cell Phone use in your Classroom | Technology & Education | Scoop.it

In today’s technological world, there is no escaping the smartphone phenomenon. The average person uses their smartphone anywhere from 8 to 10 hours a day. Most people are even checking their phones every 15 to 20 minutes while they’re awake. The ways in which smartphones have become such an essential part of modern life is staggering, and something to be aware of when teaching in a classroom.

Smartphones can be both a great educational tool and a great distraction in the classroom. It should come as no surprise that almost every child in the US owns or has access to a smartphone. Statistics show that 56 percent of children age 8 to 12 have a smartphone. That number jumps up to 88 percent of teenagers ages 13 to 17 have or have access to a smartphone. And a whopping 91 percent of middle and high school aged students primarily access the internet via their smartphones.

This change in the way we interact with technology and integrate it into our lives has come dramatically and fast. It’s sometimes hard for teachers, many of whom grew up in an era with no mobile phones or even the internet, to adapt to this fast-paced technological generation. While smartphones can easily be the downfall of your students’ attention spans and performance, they don’t have to be. More and more educators these days are incorporating modern technology and students’ own smartphones into their classroom to engage and excite students about learning. Below you will find useful tips on how to manage cell phone use in your classroom, and use it for your teaching benefit.

17 of The Best Surveys and Polls Creation Tools for Teachers and Educators

17 of The Best Surveys and Polls Creation Tools for Teachers and Educators | Technology & Education | Scoop.it
Over the last few months we have reviewed a number of interesting web tools and mobile apps teachers can use to collect students feedback. And as we have argued elsewhere, access to students feedback can positively impact both the teaching and learning process. On the one hand, it provides teachers with a discerning window through which they can assess their teaching methodologies, assess students comprehension, and based on gleaned insights, formulate working plans to meet students learning needs. On the other hand, the act of providing feedback empowers students with a voice, makes them feel valued and that their opinion matters and therefore engages them on a deeper level in the learning process.

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought

36 Core Teacher Apps For Inquiry Learning With iPads - TeachThought | Technology & Education | Scoop.it

"The interest in inquiry-based learning seems to ebb and flow based on–well, it’s not clear why it ever ebbs.


In short, it is a student-centered, Constructivist approach to learning that requires critical thinking, and benefits from technology, collaboration, resourcefulness, and other modern learning skills that never seem to fall out of favor themselves.

 

Regardless, St Oliver Plunkett Primary School has put together two very useful images that can help you populate your iPad–or classroom of iPads–with apps that support both inquiry-based learning (the second image below), and a more general approach to pedagogy based on Apple’s uber-popular tablet (the top image)."

Another delve into the use of Apps in inquiry learning that further cements my train of thinking that the most effective way for TLs to support Inquiry learning with technology is by providing apps as support resources. Whilst incredible short and most just a preface for the attached pair of graphics it dos draw the connection that Inquiry learning is student-centred and aims to promote collaboration, resourcefulness, creativity and question asking as modern learning skills. The 1st graphic breaks educational apps into potential applications such as Search Engine, Scrapbooking, communication and multimodal. The 2nd graphic is potentially more useful as it breaks apps into phases of inquiry: Tune In, Collect/Curate and Synthesise. The apps are also identified on the left as teacher apps for guiding, facilitating and scaffolding use, whereas the left are students apps for problem solving, critical thinking, creating, collaborating and communicating.

To foster growth mindsets in students, teachers can coach students to try different learning strategies that make the brain work smarter. Educator praise can be used to acknowledge specific strategies students have tried and can push students to reflect on themselves as learners. This process is more complex than it looks and ultimately should help lead students to become more independent thinkers.

Sample Student's curator insight, May 15, 2017 6:03 PM
This is a reminder to both students and teachers (we are all learners) that a can-do attitude can help us to overcome barriers and obstacles to growth. Often we see a single route to success. When that pathway is blocked, we may give up. But a positive attitude supports multiple pathways and once we persevere we find them. It is about growth, not about benchmarks - any growth, small or large is positive.

To educators who embrace new technologies wholeheartedly, digital devices are a powerful tool for creating an engaged and individualized educational experience. To those that are a little more hesitant, digital devices seem more like a quick route to Instagram and Facebook — that is, to distractions that interfere with the educational experience, rather than boosting it.

Innovations in Education - Create a Culture of Questioning and Inquiry

Innovations in Education - Create a Culture of Questioning and Inquiry | Technology & Education | Scoop.it

"I have often suggested to teachers that when students have access to technology, whether it is provided by the school in a 1:1, BYOD, or simply the smart phone in their pocket, there should never be a question that goes unanswered –or un-followed. These are teachable moments for how to effectively search for information (information literacy & digital literacy) ...What I discovered in the 300+ observations I have done for our 21st Century Learning grant work was that the problem isn’t necessarily about allowing time for students to answer questions. The problem is that they rarely ask questions beyond simply clarifying what needs to be done for the assignment."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, August 12, 2013 8:43 PM

As teachers we ask our students questions all the time...but how often do your students ask questions...perhaps a better question would be do they know how to ask good questions? This post provides some background material as well as ideas for "how you might begin to shift from a culture of compliance, to a culture of questioning in your classroom." 

One of the ideas she suggests is looking at information from the Right Question Institute and purchasing a book "Make Just One Change: Teach Students To Ask Their Own Questions." I have been reading this book and find it an incredible resource.
