What to know about 'The end of Education'

What to know about 'The end of Education' | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

The End of Education might stand to answer some questions of the school problems as Postman sees them as two dimensional. One is the engineering side of it, that is the means by which young people acquire an education. The other one is the metaphysical that is the underlying purpose or mission or the end of education. Postman believes that primary focus is mostly on the engineering aspect of the education today, while very little attention is paid to the metaphysics of schooling. He says “without a transcendent and honorable purpose schooling must reach its finish, and the sooner we are done with it, the better.” (p – x-xi).

Robin Good's curator insight, January 21, 2014 11:04 AM



Overview is a new free tool designed for investigative journalists and researchers interested in finding relevant information within large collections of text documents, from reports to social media tweets.


Overview greatly simplifies the task of analyzing, indexing and visualising large document collections in ways that can allow a journalist to identify relevant patterns and threads across thousands of different documents.


Overview is an open-source document mining system which allows you to upload thousands of documents either in PDF format, via the DocumentCloud or through a CSV spreadsheet file. These documents can be rapidly indexed, sorted and analyzed in order to present an organized visual overview of their contents. 


"Whether you are a journalist starting with thousands of pages of government documents, a reasearcher facing a huge archive, or a social media analyst starting with 100,000 posts, Overview will organize your documents into topics and sub-topics, and then visualize them -- so you can find exactly what you're looking for, instantly count the number of documents in each topic, or tag entire topics for further work."


Free to use. Open-source.

The Listening Teacher: Getting Feedback From Your Students

The Listening Teacher: Getting Feedback From Your Students | Teachning, Learning and Develpoing with Technology | Scoop.it

"Mid-year or more frequently, I ask students to complete an evaluation form. I craft the questions carefully so simple answers are hard to write. Instead, I try to create specific, complex questions that cover the material, the classroom activities and the students—peers and the individual.

Many teachers shake their heads and avoid these exercises. They scoff that students would actually take the forms seriously or that the students will say anything useful. But I find the nature of the questions often elicits a straight answer—short, but helpful."

Are you interested in flipping part of your class and would like to know some tools that would also allow you to add assessments to videos. Richard Byrne has three suggestions and all are free!

*eduCanon - Quoting from the post "eduCanon allows teachers to build flipped lessons using YouTube and Vimeo videos, create questions about the videos, then assign lessons to their students."

*Teachem uses the TED-Ed model. Choose videos that are hosted on YouTube. Add questions and comments. Videos may be public or private.

*Knowmia is a website and iPad app and their website has over 17,000 videos that you may use. You may also create your own. Knowmia has been designed for teachers and students and provides an Assignmen Wizard and is adding additional  features.

If you looking for a tool that allows you to flip a lesson and also include an assessment these three provide a variety of options. Have fun exploring and finding the one that will work best for you.

Have you seen an RSA Animate video? Are you interested in learning how to make one or better yet, have your students make one? This post provides an in-depth look at how to go about have your students create an animated video that provides them with the opportunity to  practice 21st century skills (quoted from post below):

* collaborate with one another

* synthesize ideas

* create content

* communicate ideas clearly

* use technology

This activity is designed to have your students create content, providing you with materials to use in future classes as well as helping your current students understand the materiial.

The author, Jordan Collier, provides a detailed five-day plan. Day 1 would have you dividing students into groups of three, assign them a section of a chapter in a textbook, and determine the key facts that need to be taught. To read about how to assist them with this and the tasks for Day 2 - 5 click through to the post.

Another year, another set of resolutions. We’ve all been there—we look forward to the new year and make resolutions in hopes that we throw away bad habits and adopt more meaningful ones. Somewhere along the way, we begin taking shortcuts and, in turn, begin cutting ourselves short of our own expectations. It’s no surprise, then, that only about 8% of people who make resolutions actually keep them.

Bettina Ascaino's curator insight, January 25, 2014 7:16 AM

Robin Good's insight:

 

 

Few people know that it is actually possible to curate Wikipedia content into custom print books or PDF / OpenDocument ebooks that contain exactly the content you want in the order you specify.

 

Once you are logged into Wikipedia you simply activate the Book Creator Tool and then, from that moment on, everytime you visit a Wikipedia page you can click and add it to your curated Wiki-Book.

 

There is also a dedicated wiki page where you can manage the pages you have collected and you can reorganized and sort them any way you want, eliminating the pages you don't need.

 

Unfortunately there is no integrated way to edit and further customize the content of those pages for your own use.

 

PDF versions are freely downloadable by anyone, print book versions are paid.

 

N.B.: The price for print books depends on the number of pages, starting with US$ 7.90 for books up to 100 pages. 10% of the gross sales price goes to the Wikimedia Foundation. Books are perfect bound, printed in the dimensions 8.5 inch x 5.5 inch (216 mm x 140 mm) and contain a table of contents, your chapters and articles, licensing information next to an index.

 

More info about printed versions: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Help:Books/Frequently_Asked_Questions ;

 

Free to use.

Coming across the reluctant reader in the classroom in not uncommon. This is a link to a excerpt from a graduate thesis about using graphic novels and comics to teach struggling male readers. I tried teaching graphic novels in my own classroom this spring, and even though I thought it went quite well, I still have to become a bit more acquainted and comfortable with the genre. I will most definitely give it another try this year!

 

I find inspiration to do so in Michael Storm´s point that "we need to teach young boys that literacy still is the ultimate adventure, and they too have the chance to be the hero".
