7 steps to creating PLCs teachers want to use | eSchool News | eSchool News - 2 views

  •  
    "At my district, the MSD of Wayne Township in Indianapolis, we have found that changing the way we think about teacher training not only benefits staff developers and administrators, but schools, the district as a whole, teachers, and ultimately students. A critical part of our revitalized PD plan has been the use of professional learning communities (PLCs), which are essentially groups of educators that work collaboratively and share ideas, often in an online format."

Master Twitter in 5 Steps - An Educator's Guide - 5 views

    "Is this you?

    You've joined Twitter. You're following a few people. Your profile picture may or may not be an egg. You've even tweeted a couple of times. But you're wondering what all the fuss is about.

    Or maybe this is you?

    You've joined Twitter and you've found tons of interesting people and ideas. But there is just way too much information. You can't keep track of the stuff you want to know more about.

     

    If one of these scenarios sounds familiar, you've probably begun the process of building your PLN (see this post I wrote back in September), but you want guidance about how to make it extraordinary, transformative and-most importantly-personalized for you and your needs.

    Here's how to master Twitter in five steps:"

How to Track Steps & Mileage with iPhone to Make the Health App Useful - 0 views

  •  
    "The Health app, loaded onto all iPhones with iOS 8 and sitting prominently on the home screen, is clearly ambitious, but at the moment the majority of it's intended abilities remain inactive or useless (at least without additional third party sensors, which don't seem to exist yet). But for those with a new iPhone, the Health app can be useful right now, because it has the ability to track your steps like a pedometer, as well as flights of stairs climbed, and your walking / running distance.

Seven steps to preventing back pain in pupils - Daily Genius - 1 views

  •  
    "The new school term is well under way and the early efficiencies are slipping and bad habits are slipping in. Homework is already being completed late and stuffed into heavy schoolbags before the kids stagger off again.

    In my own case, I seem to spend way too much time each day trying to persuade my son to take a day's worth of kit to school, rather than a week's. The problem is that the sanctions that come with forgetting sports kit or books is worse, in a child's mind, than the possibility, long hence, of back pain.

    But there's things that parents and teachers could do, which help take those damaging decisions out of the childrens' hands:"

8 Steps for Students to Remove Thier Digital Footprints ~ Educational Technology and Mo... - 5 views

  •  
    "One of the essential parts of the digital citizenship I have been long talking about in this blog is about digital footprints. Students need to know that whatever they do or create online leaves behind a trail or digital breadcrumbs that others can trace. This "others" can be anyone from prospective employers, to college admission boards, anything you do online should be vetted by a critical lens and if "you don't want your parents to know about it then better not do it"."

Students Matter: 3 Steps for Effective Differentiated Instruction | Edutopia - 4 views

  •  
    "Differentiated instruction (DI) is a vast system in which it is difficult for many teachers to find a foothold for supporting students in a meaningful way. Teachers want and expect everyone to succeed, yet the means to that end can be foggy at best. How can we ensure that planned learning experiences have a significant and positive impact on student learning? We can answer this question with three important guidelines that will transform student learning experiences through meaningful differentiation. "

3 Steps to Creating an Awesome Virtual Museum in Class - iPads in Education - 2 views

  •  
    "You're spending an afternoon browsing the exhibits at an art museum. If you're anything like me, you'd probably appreciate the art a lot more if you could bring someone along that could explain the history and nuances of the pieces on display. Now imagine pointing a device at the painting and seeing it morph into a dynamic video giving you all the information you wanted about the art. Welcome to augmented reality.

    Virtual reality replaces the real world with an artificial, digital environment. In contrast, augmented reality alters your view of the real world by layering it with associated digital information. Augmented reality uses your device's camera to view the immediate environment and display media when it sees an object it recognizes. It has been utilized as a marketing and informational tool by many industries. Using an augmented reality app, you can point your device at an advertisement in a magazine and get detailed product demonstrations. Aim it at a sign outside a house for sale and get an after hours virtual walk-through the property. There are also many ways augmented reality can be used in education."

5 Steps to Foster Grit in the Classroom | Edutopia - 0 views

  •  
    "The word "grit" suggests toughness and determination. The question is how do we get students to value struggle, failure and perseverance in our classrooms? ASCD recently published Thomas Hoerr's short but great book on this subject, Fostering Grit. The subtitle "How do I prepare my students for the real world?" reflects the fact that our students will encounter challenging work and problems to solve. If this is the case, our classrooms should mirror that process and prepare our students to be successful in meeting these challenges. You might consider this a critical 21st century skill, which means that we need to scaffold the related skills we're teaching our students. "
