How Rural Schools Paid for Students' Home Internet to Transform Learning | MindShift - 0 views

  •  
    "Like many districts serving low-income populations, it was fairly easy for Piedmont City School District officials in Alabama to find funds for devices. District officials wanted to leverage technology to open up opportunities for the 1,240 students in this rural community, so they started sending devices home with kids in grades 4-12 in 2009 through a program they call mPower Piedmont. However, lack of access to the Internet after school and in kids' homes became a major obstacle to learning with those devices."

Apps for Happy Learning - Teachers With Apps - 2 views

  •  
    "This post was motivated by my return to the north and the frigid temps. I realized on the second leg of my travels that no one was even remotely happy about anything. They were all connected to another world with a pair of headphones or earbuds, tuned out and removed. I love to fly and it used to be a very social activity and rather than be disappointed I threw myself into a happy app kind of mood and this is the result.

    My other intention was to point anyone with children toward exceptional downloads laden with abundant and diverse content for their children. Not just to keep them sharp when away from school and traveling, but go-to apps that are always an educational delight! Here is my list of 12 developers whose apps make for HAPPY learning; they are sure to develop your child's/student's sense of joy and wonder."

Letting Go of the Reins: Students Lead the Way with #Minecraft #edtech #ipaded - ~Mme M... - 0 views

    "It took me a while to wrap my head around how I was going to incorporate Minecraft into my Core French Classroom.  I have read about and seen many people use it for other core subjects, but had some trouble figuring out at first where it applied in my room.  I think this is partially due to the fact that I don't know that much about it.  I understand the main idea to Minecraft, but what one is truly capable of doing with it is beyond me because I don't play it.

    This is the first project I have attempted with Minecraft and I am really excited about the results for a variety of different reasons.  I would love to include it into my program in other ways and will look to the students for inspiration."

  •  
    "One of my pet peeves is receiving an email that from someone that just launches into a request without stopping to address me by name. For years I have told students that I won't reply to emails if they don't write "Hi Mr. Byrne" or something similar to start their emails. Many of my colleagues have similar policies, I'm sure that many of you do too. Using your recipient's name is one of five good email etiquette tips for students featured in the video embedded below."

Private school success due to better students, not better schools, StatsCan says - Cana... - 0 views

  •  
    "Students at Canadian private schools have more educational success than their public school peers because of their backgrounds and classmates, not the schools themselves, Statistics Canada says in a new report.

    The study followed 7,142 Grade 10 students, focusing on standardized test scores in reading, math and science at age 15, as well as the educational qualifications they had earned by age 23.

    Private school students had better test scores (about nine per cent higher on average) and more educational success after high school.

    None of the differences, however, could be attributed to school resources and practices, Statistics Canada says."

27 effective ways to get students to pay attention - Daily Genius - 5 views

  •  
    "
    Despite all your planning, hard work, grading at home, housekeeping in the classroom and (physical and virtual) paperwork world, and killer teaching skills, learning isn't going to happen if your students aren't really paying attention.

    They have to listen and participate in order to learn - at least a little bit. So what do you do with students who just aren't paying attention? Each student and each situation may require a little bit of a different approach - you wouldn't address kindergarteners the same way you'd address and deal with high schoolers."

Why It's Imperative to Teach Students How to Question as the Ultimate Survival Skill | ... - 2 views

  •  
    "Friday March 14 is the 135th anniversary of Albert Einstein's birthday, a good time to think about the importance of asking questions. This was a big theme for Einstein, who told us, "The important thing is not to stop questioning," while also urging us to question everything and "Never lose a holy curiosity."

    Einstein understood that questioning is critical to learning and solving problems. If he were alive today, Einstein would see a world in which questioning has become more important than ever before. But he might also be left wondering why, for the most part, we still don't encourage questioning or teach it to our children."

How Do Students That Hate School Learn? - 1 views

  •  
    "It has been my privilege to know many students at many grade and age levels, who have said they hated school. They were all different, referred to as brilliant, disenchanted, disengaged, unmotivated, unchallenged, stubborn, creative, and many more adjectives than a list on a page can hold. Sure, we all realize that students will say they hate school, because that's the thing kids say, and it is immediately preceded by, or followed by, "I'm bored!" But we need to consider what all students say on this subject, at any level, age, or degree, because there's no template for students at risk."
