Educationally Speaking:Technology infused teaching

Educationally Speaking:Technology infused teaching | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Technology training for teachers is tricky because skill levels vary widely so pacing a presentation can be hard to gauge. Rather than holding long professional development workshops, some schools are trying short sessions such as Tech Tuesday where one tech tip is introduced in 5 minutes and then teachers play with it for 10-15 minutes and call it a day.Some teachers in classrooms with one-to-one iPads hold Appy Hour the last hour on Friday and have a different student introduce a favorite app to the class each week. They explore together the various nuances and uses of the app by playing and creating with it.

rodrick rajive lal's curator insight, August 29, 11:21 PM
It is difficult to answer how well laptops help learning. This is an honest article that makes it very clear that using laptops might not after all, be such a good idea for all the subjects since an essay that is word processed might not be 'fluid enough' and thus a better option would be to put pen to paper! Moreover, the effective use of a laptop will also be dependent on the student's familiarity with the machine and the software. Economic status is also a limiting factor because, students have used laptops from birth (pun intended) will be more proficient in its use than those who have started relatively late and probably have even shared a laptop with others. We have gone beyond power point and Microsoft word. Fortunately enough, we need not be worried enough that we are the only ones facing problems with the integration of technology in teaching since similar issues since they have been observed in the United States too! So, before we rush to encourage the BYOD culture, we need to put in processes, and systems for the integration of EDTECH in schools.

5 Reasons Why Reading Comics Will Help Your Kids Improve Their Literacy Skills - GeekDad

5 Reasons Why Reading Comics Will Help Your Kids Improve Their Literacy Skills - GeekDad | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it
Babies start reading by recognizing pictures, and then continue their love of stories by progressively improving their pattern recognition and visual skills. You can start reading to your kid even before he or she is born! Picture books are a favorite for this very reason, and from a classic board book like Eric Carle′s The Very Hungry Caterpillar to a comic board book like Wonder Woman ABCs, comics can be around from the very start.

The Power of Admitting What We Don’t Know

The Power of Admitting What We Don’t Know | Daring Ed Tech | Scoop.it

A few months into the school year, I asked her how it was going. “You know, I decided to be a learner alongside the students for the content where I feel I have less expertise. I work more as a facilitator when that content comes around, and question and probe with the students. I think they’re learning more than they would have if I was doing more direct instruction and had more content expertise. Go figure!”

GwynethJones's insight:

Saying to someone "I don't know" is oddly freeing and liberating! Esp. when you can say that to your kiddos! But I try to always follow up with "But I'm gonna try and find out - let's discover together"

 

Confession: There are some  websites, devices, and technologies that I do not want to learn...and that's OK! I don't have to be the expert on everything -- and I can't!
