How to Wirelessly Share Files With ANY iOS Device - Jonathan Wylie

How to Wirelessly Share Files With ANY iOS Device - Jonathan Wylie | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"Ever needed to send a file from one iOS device to another? You could email it, but not all student devices are set up with email, and some files (especially video) are just too big to email. You could plug the device into a laptop and transfer the files via USB, but that can be slow, and what if you accidentally sync your device with iTunes and start transferring apps you don’t need to or from your computer? Wouldn’t it be easier if you could just beam them from one device to another? Well, you can! Here are three ways to do it."

This may be the fastest way to learn something new, according to science

This may be the fastest way to learn something new, according to science | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"The fastest way to learn something new — a language, a concept, or an instrument — hinges on how hard it is, according to a study published in November 2019. If a task is too easy or tough to tackle, learners become bored or frustrated, and outcomes suffer.

Optimal learning happens when learners make errors about 15 percent of the time, the study suggested."

Fighting Fake News in the Classroom | EdSurge News

Fighting Fake News in the Classroom | EdSurge News | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
PISA scores were recently released, and results of the international test revealed that only 14 percent of U.S. students were able to reliably distinguish between fact and opinion.

This is particularly alarming because we live in an era when, according to Pew Research Center, 68 percent of American adults get their news from social media—platforms where opinion is often presented as fact. While Facebook and other social media outlets have pledged to tackle fake news, the results are lackluster.

Even on seemingly-serious websites, credibility is not a given. When I was in middle and high school, we were taught that we could trust .org websites. Now, with the practice of astroturfing, responsible consumers of information must dig deeper and go further to verify the legitimacy of information.

As a former middle and high school classroom teacher, my first thought is: What can I do to fix this? With social media so tightly woven into the fabric of society, it is unrealistic to think that I can get people to stop using it to obtain information. And, frankly, I’m part of that 68 percent.

So, if we won’t stop getting information from these sources, what is the next best option? We, as educators and parents, must consider how to make a difference.

We can take on the task of educating our students how to distinguish fact from opinion and how to identify false or biased information

Stanford expert: Want smart kids? Don't make this parenting mistake - CNBC

Stanford expert: Want smart kids? Don't make this parenting mistake - CNBC | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"As parents, we all want to raise kids who are smart and focused, especially in a world where digital distraction seems to be inescapable. (Even tech titans like Steve Jobs and Bill Gates have strategies for limiting their children’s screen time.)

Why? Because in the future, there will be two kinds of people in the world: Those who let their attention and lives be controlled and coerced by others and those who proudly call themselves “indistractable.”

Becoming indistractable is the most important skill for the 21st century — and it’s one that many parents fail to teach their kids. After years of studying the intersection of psychology, technology and how we engage with it, one of the biggest mistakes I see parents making is not empowering their kids with the autonomy to control their own time.

Allowing them to do so is a tremendous gift; even if they fail from time to time, failure is part of the learning process. Parents need to understand that it’s okay to put their kids in charge, because it’s only when they learn to practice monitoring their own behavior that they learn how to manage their own time and attention.

Teach them at a young age."

his artificial intelligence training includes machine learning and deep learning.  If you don’t know it already you are most likely using artificial intelligence.  If you use Alexa, Siri or talk into any machine and get a response, that is most likely artificial intelligence.  Netflix and Amazon use artificial intelligence to recommend items you may like.  Facebook is using artificial intelligence for facial recognition.  The training material includes all aspects of artificial intelligence.

3D Printers for Kids & STEAM Education - Makeblock

3D Printers for Kids & STEAM Education - Makeblock | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
If you’ve been trying to keep up with trends in technology, you’ve probably heard of 3D printing. It’s a process that allows three dimensional objects to be printed using a special machine. It uses a process called additive printing to create an object out of printed layers of a material, like plastic. You can think of it as the opposite of subtractive manufacturing, which is when an object is cut out of a material.

3D printing has a lot of unique uses in science, engineering, and even healthcare. It’s also becoming a popular and effective way to incorporate STEAM education in schools. There are some great 3D printers for kids that engage them in STEAM skills and content.

The Chrome Browser Settings You Should Tweak Right Now | WIRED | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Chances are you spend a lot of your computing time inside a browser window, and quite possibly inside a Chrome tab; Google's browser has come from nowhere in 2008 to dominate the browser landscape on desktop and mobile. Part of Chrome's appeal is its ease-of-use, but it also has more advanced features just below the surface that can help you do more in less time.

To give your time online a boost, try these Chrome tips and tweaks. If you'd rather go for a more privacy-focused browser, give one of these alternatives a spin. Or if you're heavy into Apple's ecosystem, try our guide to Safari on iOS and macOS.

How to Prepare Social Studies Students to Think Critically in the Modern World - Edutopia

How to Prepare Social Studies Students to Think Critically in the Modern World - Edutopia | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
In an era when students must sort through increasingly complex social and political issues, absorbing news and information from an evolving digital landscape, social studies should be meaningful and engaging—a means for preparing students for the modern world, writes Paul Franz for EdSurge. Yet much of our social studies curricula emphasizes content knowledge over the development of foundational, critical thinking skills such as understanding the context in which primary sources were created, and determining the credibility of resources.
