A Two-Minute Guide To Artificial Intelligence - 1 views

  •  
    "If you keep hearing about artificial intelligence but aren't quite sure what it means or how it works, you're not alone. 

    There's been much confusion among the general public about the term, not helped by dramatic news stories about how "AI" will destroy jobs, or companies that overstate their abilities to "use AI."

ISTE | Navigating the smartphone minefield: A guide for middle school leaders - 1 views

  •  
    "Educators and parents have something in common when it comes to the kids in their care: They are both navigating the treacherous waters of media, devices and children.

    Parents worry their children overuse screens, yet, they also fear that without the devices, their kids may fall behind socially, academically or be unsafe.

    Educators are aware that parents like the quick access to their children, and they also know smartphones offer opportunities for learning. Yet the devices can also be distracting in school.

    Many parents look to school leaders for guidance. They want recommendations for purchasing phones, using apps, keeping children safe and establishing screen time guidelines. Yet, schools tend to shy away from doling out this kind of advice.  

    Schools should reconsider this aversion. After all, the average age for getting a cell phones is now 10, which makes middle school the ideal time to share advice and recommendations for parents. Creating student smartphone guidelines presents an opportunity for educators to partner with parents and children about the use of devices and digital mental health."

The Epic Guide to Student Ownership - A.J. Juliani - Medium - 2 views

  •  
    "Take a look at the definition of student-centered learning, and let me know what you think:

    Student-centered learning (SCL), or learner-centeredness, is a learning model that places the student (learner) in the center of the learning process. In student-centered learning, students are active participants in their learning; they learn at their own pace and use their own strategies; they are more intrinsically than extrinsically motivated; learning is more individualized than standardized. Student-centered learning develops learning-how-to-learn skills such as problem solving, critical thinking, and reflective thinking. Student-centered learning accounts for and adapts to different learning styles of students (National Center for Research on Teacher Learning, 1999)."
