  •  
    "Teachers do a lot to maintain student interest. The use of technology and different classroom models, like blended learning, are strategies that increase student engagement. However, there are simpler ways to hold students' interests, especially if you don't have the financial or administrative support needed for high-tech engagement models. The key to student interest is simple: it's choice."

Teacher Forces Her Shy Classmate In Front Of The Class. What He Does? OMG! - LittleThin... - 1 views

    If you can't watch the video on Facebook you can see it on YouTube -

    "If you've ever seen the movie The King's Speech, you remember the incredible feeling at the end when the King finally overcame the debilitating speech impediment he suffered from since he was a boy. Musharaf Asghar is no King, he is just a young man who has suffered his entire life, like the king, with a terrible stutter.

    In this heartwarming video, Mushy's teacher uses the same method as in the movie - using music to overcome anxiety - to help Mushy speak. For this man, even getting a few words out felt impossible, but once he started getting the hang of it, there was no stopping him."

Preventing the burden of back pain in pupils - Daily Genius - 0 views

  •  
    "In the UK this week, half-term is nearly over and the kids are going back to school - and carting my daughter's schoolbag and gym bag in for her this morning reminded me of the warnings that a growing numbers of children are developing irreversible back deformities because of the weight of the bags they carry to school."

5 Ways to Embrace Digital Annotation for Student Feedback and Grading - 11 views

  •  
    "There's nothing quite as satisfying as the soft, smooth roll of pen on paper. That ability to scribble, strike, crumple and tear. But what about the downsides of this ancient medium? Endless printing cycles. Lack of searchability. A desk stacked to the roof with essays and sheets to mark. It's these frustrations and a determination to streamline the classroom that have led many educators to trade in their pen for a stylus, and begin embracing the the brave new world of digital annotation."

  •  
    "In yesterday's post about creating digital records of physical items I mentioned using Skitch to take pictures and annotate them. One of the things about Skitch that I failed to mention in that post is that along with drawing and typing on a picture you can crop and blur items in a picture."

What does an engaged student look like? - Daily Genius - 3 views

  •  
    "Teachers want their students to learn, but they also want them to be interested in learning and excited about learning, which will ameliorate both the experience and the process. If you've ever tried getting students excited about subject material that is less than exciting, you know this isn't always easy.



    There are a lot of different factors that come together to make a student successful - and the combination varies from student to student. Some rely on natural ability, some rely on the success of their peers to motivate them, others need a huge teacher-parent-peer support system to make any academic success happen. That said, nearly every student can be successful - at least to some degree- if they're engaged."

The Struggles and Realities of Student-Driven Learning and BYOD | MindShift - 1 views

  •  
    "If the promise of mobile technology in classrooms has been to equalize opportunities for all students through access to the internet, that potential has yet to be realized.

    National surveys consistently show that students in low-income schools are getting short-changed when it comes to using technology in school. A 2013 Pew study revealed that only 35 percent of teachers at the lowest income schools allow their students to look up information on their mobile devices, as compared to 52 percent of teachers at wealthier schools. And while 70 percent of teachers working in high income areas say their schools do a good job providing resources and support to effectively integrate technology into the classroom, only 50 percent of teachers in low-income areas agree.

    The reality is that while some teachers have found powerful ways to use mobile devices - both those owned by students and those purchased by the school - teachers at schools in very low-income areas are often battling a persistent student culture of disengagement. Many students have learning gaps that make it hard for them to stay interested in grade level materials and little desire to be in school at all."

Can Schools Cultivate a Student's Ability to Think Differently? | MindShift - 0 views

    "Entrepreneurship is often associated with people who assume the risk of starting a business venture for financial gain. However, entrepreneurs exist in many forms: They may be writers, carpenters, computer programmers, school principals or fundraisers, to name just a few examples.

    What they have in common is an "entrepreneurial mindset" that enables them to see opportunities for improvement, take initiative and collaborate with others to turn their ideas into action. Everyone is born with some propensity for entrepreneurship, which at its core is about solving problems creatively, according to Yong Zhao, a professor at the University of Oregon's College of Education. He is the author of several books, including, most recently, "Who's Afraid of the Big Bad Dragon? Why China has the Best (and Worst) Education System in the World."

    "We overemphasize the deficits of children, and that's not a good starting point. … If we let people flourish in their own ways, hopefully everyone will find something they want to do."

    Unfortunately, the current education system doesn't support the development of an entrepreneurial mindset, Zhao says, because of its reliance on standards, tests and a prescribed curriculum, which are all fundamentally incompatible with entrepreneurial thinking. Studies have shown an inverse relationship between countries' academic test scores and entrepreneurship levels, and between years of schooling and entrepreneurship levels."
