How To Search Historical Newspaper Images Using Artificial Intelligence - TeachThought

How To Search Historical Newspaper Images Using Artificial Intelligence - TeachThought | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Teachers and students (or anyone else in the public, for that matter) can now explore more than 1.5 million historical newspaper images online using artificial intelligence.

The latest machine learning experience from LC Labs, Newspaper Navigator allows users to search visual content in American newspapers dating from 1789-1963. The user begins by entering a keyword that returns a selection of photos. Then the user can choose photos to search against, allowing the discovery of related images that were previously undetectable by search engines.

Let’s Help Teachers Grow by Coaching — Not Micromanaging — Them | EdSurge News

Let’s Help Teachers Grow by Coaching — Not Micromanaging — Them | EdSurge News | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
Before I started teaching ninth grade Algebra in D.C. Public Schools, I had a career in global health. I would sometimes travel alone for work for weeks at a time, collaborating with partners abroad and updating my boss back in D.C. every few days. The scope of these trips could be nebulous and my boss didn’t know exactly how I was spending my days, much less my hours and minutes. He trusted me to do my job, and as a result, I held myself accountable for doing it well.

So when I transitioned away from that career to teaching, I was caught off-guard by a completely different model of management and supervision. I went from experiencing autonomy to micromanagement. I was suddenly subject to unannounced classroom visits, expected to keep printed copies of detailed daily lesson plans in a binder on my desk (even when my actual planning was done digitally) and required to configure my whiteboard in a particular way.

Video Conferencing: Establishing Routines and Structuring Online Time with Students - Caitlin Tucker @Caitlin_Tucker | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it
As teachers consider their routines for this upcoming year, I encourage them to take the ideas and values that guide the design and facilitation of their in-class work with students and adapt them for the online environment. For example, most teachers use flexible grouping strategies in the classroom based on the objectives of a lesson. They may provide whole group instruction, work with small groups, and conference with individual students. Similarly, teachers hosting video conferencing sessions will want to consider whether whole group, small group, or individual sessions make the most sense given the purpose of that session.

This Is How You Make Distance Learning Easier for Restless Kids by Rachel Garlinghouse

This Is How You Make Distance Learning Easier for Restless Kids by Rachel Garlinghouse | iPads, MakerEd and More  in Education | Scoop.it

"It’s our second day of remote learning, and my second grader cannot focus. The moment we’re supposed to jump on a Zoom call with his class, it starts to storm. At first, there’s just a gentle rumbling of thunder, but it quickly gives way to lightening, an epic downpour, and booming. And just like that, his ability to pay attention to the teacher’s noun lesson is gone, and there’s no coming back. This wasn’t the first time, nor would it be the last, that focusing on the lesson-at-hand was nearly impossible. Something had to change, and fast."
