The State of Educational Video 2014 - Streaming Media Magazine

The proliferation of mobile devices and the surge in popularity of the flipped classroom mean that video is at the head of the class in today's schools.

Via Emmanouil Zouraris
Magic 2018's insight:
Learners today, from early childhood through to university have been regularly exposed to online video tutorials as part of their edification. Not all schools have responded to this shift in online education, but the accessibility to mobile devices and students’ uptake to enhance and complement their learning is sending a strong message that educators need to jump on board the YouTube express. Industrial Technology and Design (ITD) is very hands-on for both teacher and students. Wood, metalwork and graphic design all depend on direct method of instruction (Churchill et al., 2016, p. 252) where teachers model and reinforce the procedures until the students can complete the task independently. For students to take accountability of their own learning, ITD teachers need to be able to transform their direct instruction methods through video technology, which will allow them more time to focus on assisting students with diverse learning needs (Churchill et al., 2016, p. 150). Students have shown their approval for online learning within the core subject areas through the uptake of sites such as ‘Kahn Academy’. By applying the SAMR Model (Substitution, Augmentation, Modification and Redefinition) in ITD with the use of video material, teachers will transform classroom activities for the benefit of all. Entire ITD lesson plans can be pre-recorded and viewed via an interactive whiteboard, monitor or on students’ smartphones, tablets and laptops. The latter three are great applications for students requiring extension work or the completion of learning tasks outside of school hours. The flexibility of being able to pause and replay lesson components in conjunction with the teachers’ dialogue will promote greater active student learning. Video technology accommodates the ‘flipped classroom’ style of teaching perfectly, students can review the components of the preceding ITD lesson prior to its commencement, which then allows the teachers to allocate more time for hands-on doing rather than lecturing. In addition, the ability for teachers to ‘flip’ the lesson where students are videoed and then students review the footage with the teacher/cohort to provide constructive feedback on their ITD skills will enhance student engagement. To take this process one step further, video recordings of students completing set tasks could also be combined as part of their assessment. To support videos produced within the ITD classroom and teachers lesson plans, online video platforms will become an important component for broadening students’ knowledge base. As with any online material though, online etiquette and safety will be critical in the uptake and success of its usage. Teachers must ensure that the platforms that students access are in line with the requirements as set out by the Australian Professional Standards for Teachers (Standard 4.5) in conjunction with the Queensland Government’s Cybersafety plan and intellectual property and copyright laws. “A picture is worth a thousand words........and a video is worth a thousand pictures!” (Subbarao, 2018) References Churchill, R., Godinho, S., Johnson, N., Keddie, A., Letts, W., Lowe, K., & Vick, M.

Whose Responsibility Is It to Facilitate Digital Equity?

Whose Responsibility Is It to Facilitate Digital Equity? | 21st Century Education | Scoop.it

"Technology is becoming a significant component of classroom curriculum and education in general. Computers, tablets, and mobile apps all promote learning on a deeper level for students. While this edtech certainly can help to promote better grades and deeper understanding, schools are now facing issues with digital equity. Students from high-income families have far more access to the technology needed to succeed than those from low-income families. The major disparity is both shocking and widespread."

We must strive for digital equity, not just in the USA but around the world.  Important to consider is that equity for persons with differing needs and/or disabilities must be included in this conversation, in order to someday achieve true digital equity

What Happens When Students Own Their Learning?

What Happens When Students Own Their Learning? | 21st Century Education | Scoop.it

"What happens when students own their own learning? It turns out that when students take control of their own learning, they gain a whole host of benefits. So what are they?"

This is a repost from Laura. 
A positive behaviour of students is being engaged with their school work. An efficient way to encourage students to take ownership and engage with the course work, is to give students control. Teachers are in the unique position to give students choices regarding what and how they study the required content. Glasser’s theory of control states that ‘if students do not feel that they have power in their… classes, they will not work in school’ (Glasser, 1991). This process of assuming responsibility for their learning allows students to become competent, independent learners. Choice theory is the idea that in order to get people to cooperate and work together. Instead of the traditional external control psychology which ‘pits individuals against each other in an attempt to make others do what they don't want to do’ (Glasser, 1991). In the classroom this could like designing a history project that is completely student led. Students are given a specific time period, theme or concept and asked to design a project which take an in-depth look into a section that captures their interest. Choice theory encourages students to be responsible for their thinking, behaviour, learning and choices. This aligns with Ragnar’s responsibility behaviour management plan that aims to teach students that they are responsible for their behaviour. ‘The students are informed from the outset that their thinking changes their neurology’ (Ragnar, 2015). It also teaches the strategies that they can employ to stop episodes of inappropriate behaviour. Ragnar (2015) describes how as teachers we want to get students to a point where when we ask, “Who’s got the power?”, each student is able to respond with “I’ve got the power”. The use of choice theory, or giving students control of their unique learning experience, helps students develop confidence in their own ability, and improve self-esteem. This in turn makes the learner feel good about their own abilities, leading to improved learning goals.

I found this scoop quite short but very meaningful, as its contents of the different positive outcomes of students when they own their learning, are what I want to achieve and help guide my future students towards. I think the outcomes of students being self-determined, having growth mindsets, resilience and grit, project management skills and wanting to experiment. Are great traits for not only students to have in class but out of school as well. I will defiantly thrive to alter my ways of teaching to encourage students to own their learning while in my classes.
Mitchell Allen Klaer's curator insight, June 3, 2018 3:50 AM
From what I have learnt so far in my pre service teaching experience I am a strong believer in guiding students to develop their own learning. I believe it allows them to think critically and become problem solvers as well as really experience what they enjoy about each subject. If they enjoy the subject then they are more inclined to engage which will enable them to learn the subject and remember what they learn.

A Principal's Reflections: Shifting from Passive to Active Learning

A Principal's Reflections: Shifting from Passive to Active Learning | 21st Century Education | Scoop.it

“Nothing could be more absurd than an experiment in which computers are placed in a classroom where nothing else is changed.” - Seymour Papert

When it comes to improving outcomes in the digital age, efficacy matters more than ever.  Billions of dollars are spent across the world on technology with the hopes that it will lead to better results.  Tom Murray and I shared this thought in Learning Transformed:


"Educational technology is not a silver bullet. Yet year after year, districts purchase large quantities of devices, deploy them on a large scale, and are left hoping the technology will have an impact. Quite often, they’re left wondering why there was no change in student engagement or achievement after large financial investments in devices. Today’s devices are powerful tools. At the cost of only a few hundred dollars, it’s almost possible to get more technological capacity than was required to put people on the moon. Nevertheless, the devices in tomorrow’s schools will be even more robust. With that in mind, it’s important to understand that the technology our students are currently using in their classrooms is the worst technology they will ever use moving forward. As the technology continues to evolve, the conversation must remain focused on learning and pedagogy—not on devices."


Unfortunately, technology is not a magic wand that will automatically empower learners to think critically, solve complex problems, or close achievement gaps.  These outcomes rely on taking a critical lens to pedagogical techniques to ensure that they evolve so that technology can begin to support and ultimately enhance instruction.  If the former (pedagogy) isn’t solid, then all the technology in the world won’t make a difference.  As William Horton states, “Unless you get the instructional design right, technology can only increase the speed and certainty of failure.”

The idea of passive and active learning is new to me, however the concept inspired me to look further. From reading this, it is important to promote an active learning discipline in the classrooms to ensure students are involved in meaningful learning that is supported by ICTs. Active learning allows students to take charge and use the technologies that best suit them and the task at hand. This has informed my digital pedagogy and I will be sure to put this to practice.
