Over 100 Essential Questions Examples Organized by Subject - 3 views

  •  
    "So many essential questions examples, so little time. When we talk about essential questions, often the man who comes to mind is the late great Grant Wggins. He is still known as the "godfather of the essential question." Both he and his colleague Jay McTighe did so much to bring an awareness of how to create meaningful essential questions in education. They knew, as we do now, that the questions we ask our students matter."

Epic Examples of Minecraft in the Classroom - 1 views

  •  
    "Minecraft has become arguably one of the most popular games in history. This is evident not only with gaming communities, but also among educators. If you're not familiar with Minecraft, imagine a Lego-meets-SimCity stylized world with your only limit being your creativity. Why is it so popular?"

12 Things We Can 3D Print in Medicine - 3D Printing Industry - 0 views

  •  
    "Kaiba Gionfriddo was born prematurely in 2011. After 8 months, his lung development caused concerns, although he was sent home with his parents as his breathing was normal. Six weeks later, Kaiba stopped breathing and turned blue. He was diagnosed with tracheobronchomalacia, a long Latin word that means his that windpipe was so weak that it collapsed. He had a tracheostomy and was put on a ventilator - the conventional treatment. Still, Kaiba would stop breathing almost daily. His heart would stop, too. Then, his caregivers 3D printed a bioresorbable device that instantly helped Kaiba breathe. This case is considered a prime example of how customized 3D printing is transforming healthcare as we know it.

    Since Kaiba's story, 3D printing in medicine has been skyrocketing. And the list of objects that have already been successfully printed in this field demonstrates the potential that this technology holds for healthcare in the near future."

    "WebQuest is an inquiry-oriented activity in which students get all information from the web. Teachers provide their students with the documents that include links to websites to use the information, according to the activity. The purpose of using WebQuest is to encourage students to use information rather than gathering it and participate in meaningful classroom discussions. WebQuest supports critical thinking through analyzing, creating, and evaluating. Also, it integrates technology into learning and foster cooperative learning.

    Below are examples of WebQuests in a science classroom:"

40 Moving Examples Of #Iwishmyteacherknew - 0 views

    "Kyle Schwartz teaches third grade at Doull Elementary in Colorado.

    By now, you've likely heard of her-or at least one of her ideas, #Iwishmyteacherknew.

    Every now and then, there's an "Education" story that the masses take notice of-standardized testing, Michelle Rhee, Waiting for Superman, the flipped classroom, the iPad failure in LA, the testing scandal in LA, among others. The most recent to crossover is the hashtag #Iwishmyteacherknew, which is what it sounds like it might be-an asynchronous conversation (or rather, series of statements) illuminating the realities that many students face every day.

    On one hand, there's an inherent kind of other disconnect at work here that makes the whole thing a huge act of spectacle, while inviting frank discussions about privacy. We'll talk more about that in a follow-up later this week. To provide context to that kind of analysis, first the tweets themselves."

8 Examples of Transforming Lessons Through the SAMR Cycle - Emerging Education Technolo... - 3 views

  •  
    "The SAMR Model for integrating technology into teaching, developed by Dr. Ruben Puentedura, has gained a good deal of exposure in recent years. "SAMR" is an acronym that stands for Substitution, Augmentation, Modification, and Redefinition. The SAMR model provides a technique for moving through degrees of technology adoption to find more meaningful uses of technology in teaching and move away from simply using "tech for tech's sake"."
