Can Technology help Parents become better Teachers? – Guest Post by Becky Fisher, M.Ed. | The Digital Media Diet

Can Technology help Parents become better Teachers? – Guest Post by Becky Fisher, M.Ed. | The Digital Media Diet | TELP Technology in Education, Libraries and Publishing | Scoop.it

Kindergarten readiness has become one of the strongest predictors of down-­the-­road success in school. U.S. Secretary of Education Arne Duncan discussed the importance of early ­childhood ­education during a press conference recently, where he was proposing to implement head start programs across all fifty states. The government has previously voiced a desire to invest heavily in early childhood education in order to ensure that all students have equal opportunities to be school­ ready when they enter kindergarten. By providing “universal preschool”, we can offer a potentially successful solution to this widening achievement gap.

 

However, I believe there are other factors at large here that we have not yet discussed ...

The 2012 CYBILS Literary Awards – Five iPad Book Apps to Make the Cut | The Digital Media Diet

The 2012 CYBILS Literary Awards – Five iPad Book Apps to Make the Cut | The Digital Media Diet | TELP Technology in Education, Libraries and Publishing | Scoop.it

Book apps have been around since the iPhone launched apps in 2008, although it wasn’t until the larger screen option with the iPad in 2010 that they really caught fire in the book blogging community. In 2011, book apps were considered for Cybils for the first time.

 

In this second year, we had the opportunity to consider more than 80 book apps. Of these many fine nominated book apps, we could choose only a small number as finalists for 2012. 

 

There is just one category to consider everything from graphic novel apps aimed at tweens to picture book apps for toddlers (and everything else in-between, including fiction & non-fiction titles). Needless to say, it was very challenging to pick just five apps to move on to the final round.

By ANTON TROIANOVSKI And DANNY YADRON

U.S. regulators broadened decade-old rules governing children's privacy online to cover new areas like smartphones, but amid pressure from the technology industry backed away from proposals that could have made companies like Facebook Inc.FB -4.02% and Apple Inc. AAPL -0.46% more responsible for violations.

 

The Federal Trade Commission said it would change how it implements the Children's Online Privacy Protection Act of 1998, or Coppa, to reflect the growth of social networks and smartphone apps among children.

Developmentally Appropriate Practice (DAP) | National Association for the Education of Young Children | NAEYC | TELP Technology in Education, Libraries and Publishing | Scoop.it

Developmentally appropriate practice, often shortened to DAP, is an approach to teaching grounded both in the research on how young children develop and learn and in what is known about effective early education. Its framework is designed to promote young children’s optimal learning and development.

 

DAP involves teachers meeting young children where they are (by stage of development), both as individuals and as part of a group; and helping each child meet challenging and achievable learning goals...continued

The Gamification of Reading | ALSC Blog

The Gamification of Reading | ALSC Blog | TELP Technology in Education, Libraries and Publishing | Scoop.it

Our world is changing at a fast pace through our increasing usage of mobile devices, media applications, and new technology. The way we learn and think is also changing to accommodate our new environments. There has been a lot of talk recently about screen time and children. Some see it as beneficial and some see it as harmful. Hopefully, more research will be coming forward on the issue, but from what I have read it is the engagement and interaction keywords that keep standing out in every argument on both sides of the issue. Applying gamification to reading seems to be an opportunity for us to make things interesting for a new generation of readers. Some of us are already doing this in our summer reading programs by using game boards instead of reading logs.

This is how I see gamification…

Lynn Karoly: President Obama should stay strong on his universal preschool initiative. This is about giving low-income children a good start
JULIE BRANNON's insight:

Most of the debate since Obama spoke has centered on whether universal preschool would be beneficial or a waste of public-sector resources. But this obscures some important details of the president's plan, namely expanding preschool access specifically for low- to moderate-income children, ensuring that programs deliver high-quality early education, and coordinating federal efforts with state initiatives.

The Digital Media Diet Parents, Kids & The Digital Shift: Strategies for a Balanced Media Diet | The Digital Media Diet

The Digital Media Diet Parents, Kids & The Digital Shift: Strategies for a Balanced Media Diet | The Digital Media Diet | TELP Technology in Education, Libraries and Publishing | Scoop.it

This guest post is brought to you in collaboration with Lorraine Akemann of Moms With Apps. This is Part 1 of a 2 part post … the 2nd part will appear in the MomsWithApps.comblog in December of 2012.

 

 

From Lorraine, “Carisa and I have both been blogging about family-friendly apps since 2009. We realized through our friendship and conversations, that contrary to what the public might think, media habits in our own homes are actually quite conservative. By immersing ourselves in tech culture, we are gaining enough ‘digital literacy’ to make media plans for our own kids. We hope that by sharing our own stories, we can learn more about your stories, and create a collective view about healthy media habits for families.”

 

Through our discussions, we found ourselves contemplating similar questions, like, “How much screentime is too much?” This turned out to be a key issue on both our minds, as we navigate family life. There is a balance between exposing children to technology, and keeping technology at bay … so trade-offs aren’t made with other aspects of a child’s development.

 

 

 

Below, you’ll find some of the techniques that we’ve identified, with data from our survey. We did this ‘quick study’ with 100 parents recruited from high-tech households in our social media fan base for Digital-Storytime & MomsWithApps.

 

The purpose of the survey was to take a the ‘temperature’ of other families trying to balance media use for their kids, to see how our list stacked up against techniques being used by other families. Note: We focused primarily on ‘leisure time’ or ‘free time’ use of visual media or ‘screen time’ by kids, excluding all curricular & extra-curricular use of media devices for learning in a school/homework or homeschool environment (as well as use of screens for communication or other ‘acts of daily living’ for children with learning disabilities). 

 

We also gathered a lot of qualitative comments that we’ll present in the the 2nd post, regarding advice from parents about how to manage screen time & ideas for the larger community.
