The 25 Best Pinterest Boards in Educational Technology - 6 views

  •  
    "Thanks to OnlineUniversities for this list of the Best Pinterest Boards in Educational Technology.

    Blogs and Twitter aren't the only social tools out there that can help you keep up with the latest and greatest developments in educational technology. Pinterest is rapidly becoming a favorite tool of educators all over the nation, and many have amassed some pretty great collections of edtech-related pins that teachers and students alike can use to explore new ways to learn, share, teach, and grow. While it would be nearly impossible to highlight every edtech pinboard out there, we've shared some of the boards we think stand out among the crowd here. Many are maintained by major educational websites, key figures in edtech, and well-known bloggers, but others were created by teachers just like you who simply want to share resources and tips with others in education."

The Best iPad Apps For Drawing, Painting, & Art Education - 0 views

  •  
    "Many artists like pallets, holding pencils and brushes in their hands, and working with the textured surface of a canvas or paper.

    But many of the same artists also like digital portfolio, easy publishing, one-button sharing, working with layers, mashing images, video, and music, and other potential that comes with working with digital tools. And this is especially true for those working in art education-teachers that have to handle the workflow of dozens of students working on dozens more projects as a time.

    In this way, tablets like the iPad, Nexus 7, and Windows Surface can make a lot of sense-and programs like the collection-by listly user Teaching Pallet-of the following 30 iPad apps for drawing, painting, and art education a great place to start your iPad art collection."

Let's Change the Conversation About Education (Technology) | Digital Promise - 4 views

  • When it comes to technology – something so ingrained in our daily lives – what if we stop asking “why” and start asking “how”? What if we told stories about solutions instead of failures?

Go Make Something | John Spencer - 3 views

  •  
    "Over the last year and a half, I been intentionally responding to every complaint I make about education with the following questions:

    What have I made that helps solve this problem? 

    If not . . . 

    Who do I know that is solving this problem? How can I promote that solution? 

    I don't always have the answers and I don't have the time or the knowledge or the capacity to create solutions. But even that, in itself, is a step in the right direction. Sometimes admitting that you don't know the answer is a part of the solution."

Revealing our Lifelong Learning - 7 views

  •  
    Few would argue that life-long learning is a worthy goal with real benefits for our long term mental health and happiness. Engaging with new ideas, concepts and ways of doing things is the ideal strategy for a healthy mind and a disposition towards better understanding the world and challenging our entrenched beliefs.

Project-Based Engineering for Kids - 1 views

  •  
    "This is a collection of project-based engineering lessons for kids. Project-based learning allows students to control the direction and pace of their learning. Activities that promote investigation, critical thinking, and hands-on subject matter are also central to project-based learning.

    These project-based lessons focus on basic principles of physics, structural, and mechanical engineering. Physical models are built from a similar set of materials that can be easily sourced online (links are provided in-lesson).

    All of the project plans in this collection are designed to be used in an after school enrichment setting, though you may use and modify these ideas for other not-for-profit purposes provided you cite The Workshop for Young Engineers.

    This is a growing and improving collection of lesson plans. Please comment to share your ideas to improve lessons and photos of your designs."

The Big Picture Of Education Technology: The Padagogy Wheel - 7 views

  •  
    "Teaching is a matter of design.

    That's not new, but in an era of change and possibility, it's more apparent now than ever.

    The SAMR model (which acts as a kind of continuum to reflect the possibilities of technology in learning) is a helpful tool to make sense of this idea, a visual reminder that ideally technology moves beyond Substitution phase (the "S") towards a Redefinition (the "R") of what was previously impossible without it.

    This, among other shifts, will help fully realize the potential of learning technology. When you take a Bloom's wheel, and smash it together with 60+ educational apps that allows learners to brainstorm, collaborate, research, create, curate, and create new knowledge-well, you have the image below, courtesy of Allan Carrington of Designing Outcomes."
