The top 10 edtech lessons I've learnt after 15 years in schools - Karl Rivers - Medium - 4 views

  • The answer is that Google Classroom doesn't take any effort to use.
  • It’s about people not technology
  • There’s no such thing as a digital native
  • ...5 more annotations...
  • Always read the terms and conditions
  • I’m all for teachers experimenting with new apps, but please read the Ts and Cs before sighing up your students.
  • ntirely new concepts of technology are flooding into the industry every day, and it’s impossible to keep up. The best we can do is put in place policies an procedures to allow our teachers and students to take advantage of them in a safe and secure way.
  • Forget about hardware, the Internet is the platform of the future
  • Keep your data and your devices independent. Become device agnostic. Forget hardware and operating systems and become a cross-platform service provider.

As Schools Emphasize Computer Science, How Do We Teach Teachers To Code? | Fast Company... - 1 views

  •  
    "One thing it doesn't mean, or it really shouldn't mean, is that we replace any existing teachers with engineers or computer science specialists. "Learning how to code is certainly not an easy task, but it pales in comparison to learning how to teach," says Adam Enbar, cofounder of the Flatiron School, a coding academy in New York.

    Indeed, it doesn't matter how well you know your way around a line of code if you can't impart that information clearly to a pupil, a lesson Gina Sipley, a former English and social studies teacher, experienced firsthand when she herself was learning to code through a General Assembly course. "The teacher we had was a brilliant programmer, that was clear, but had never taught before," she explains. "So as the course went on, people sought out the teachers in the room and said, 'This doesn't make sense. How would you present the information?' I don't have a deep content knowledge at all, but I know how people learn best and how to structure lessons so people are going to get the most out of it."

    So, what's the smartest, most effective way to go about teaching our 3.1 million existing public school teachers to code, so they're prepared to teach our students?"

Robots in Education: What's Here and What's Coming | Edudemic - 2 views

  •  
    "Decades before the computer revolution began to spread in earnest, science fiction's most creative minds sketched out a future most of us never thought we'd see. And yet between self-driving cars and yes, even hoverboards, that future seems closer than ever.

    Nowhere is this more of a reality than in the field of robotics. Sure, we may not each have our own robotic besties/slaves as the old sci fi shows predicted we'd have by now, but judging by the many creative ways robotics are used in so many classrooms today, well…We're pretty close. Let's take a look at some of the neatest and most inspiring ways Robot Education (RoboEd?) is unfolding today"
