Snapchat, Instagram, YouTube, Oh My! 4 Tools for Picting in the Classroom | EdSurge News - 1 views

  •  
    "We've all heard it before: "A picture is worth a thousand words." That famous idiom (or is it a cliche?) first appeared in a 1911 newspaper and has been widely used since. In today's society, however, the phrase has taken on a whole new meaning. Using images instead of text to convey ideas-known as "picting"-is becoming the norm among today's digital-first students."

    "We're excited to be partnering with Google / YouTube to bring you PROJECT ROCKIT TV - creating conversations around the kind of stuff we don't often get to talk about at school. Through our twelve-part series, we answer questions from students, like:

    How do I handle hate in online gaming? 

    How can I better support friends when times are tough?

    What should I do if someone is pressuring me to send private photos?

    How can I make good stuff go viral?"

High-Tech Resources for STEM Teachers - 0 views

  •  
    "Both STEM and EdTech are hot topics these days, and educators can now leverage a host of wonderful tools that make teaching easier and learning more interactive. Here we describe some of the hottest new technology in STEM education, and provide a list of free online resources available to you, including STEM websites, simulations, communications tools, and tips for teachers.

    These tools are transforming the way teachers approach STEM. They help you tie the theoretical concepts of your subjects into real-world applications. By showing students that the knowledge you're imparting is relevant and useful, you can more successfully engage them in your lessons, while developing their creativity and problem-solving skills. Ultimately, you could help inspire a new generation of scientists, mathematicians, and innovators!"

Educational Disadvantage - Socio-economic Status & Education Pt 1 - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    The role that education plays in issues of social equity and justice cannot be undervalued. It is acknowledged by the United Nations as a human right, 'Everyone has the right to education' (United Nations, 1948) and as outlined in the Melbourne Declaration on the Educational Goals for Young Australians 'As a nation Australia values the central role of education in building a democratic, equitable and just society- a society that is prosperous, cohesive and culturally diverse, and that values Australia's Indigenous cultures as a key part of the nation's history, present and future.' (Barr et al, 2008). Such lofty assertions of the importance of education as a right and national value should be sufficient to ensure that all Australians have access to an education of the highest standard with equitable outcomes for all, the reality is that this is not the case.

How then, do educators learn about digital literacy, so they can model and teach it to their students?  Thankfully, there are tons of apps, tools, and resources that can help. We decided to profile the best ones."

Maker Education on a Budget - The Learner's Way - 1 views

  •  
    There is growing interest from schools in the Maker Movement and Maker Education but with this have come some subtle misunderstandings about what it is all about. For one the modern maker movement is all about the mindset of the maker rather than developing a set of specific skills for making. The second confusion stems from a belief that the maker movement is all about the tools and the makerspace and that as such it involves large budgets.
