The Most Audacious 'Class' I've Ever Seen - Blog - HappySteve - 27 views

  • We use a 'landscape/frame/gateway' approach that overlays freedom and agency onto a sophisticated curated learning landscape that takes 100s of hours to set up. 
  • Audacious. 180 kids, 1 space, NO TEACHERS. They put precautionary measures in place. No gap in duty-of-care. But: one huge risk. An audacious risk. Step back. Create space. Allow agency. Truth is, for the rest of the year it will be: 180 kids, 6 to 8 teachers, 1 space, and a virtual learning platform to rival the Khan Academy.

    Lookk, before you do anything, just watch this footage. Then, optionally, read my waffle. But watch this footage. As jaw-dropping to me as any TED talk. Try to spot the teacher. OHHHH there aren't any. Yet the kids are working in synchronicity. WHY? HOW? Answer this, and you've cracked the paradigm-change nut we're smack-bang in the middle of:

Study: Class size doesn't matter - The Washington Post - 9 views

  • traditionally collected input measures — class size, per pupil expenditure, the fraction of teachers with no certification, and the fraction of teachers with an advanced degree — are not correlated with school effectiveness.
  • frequent teacher feedback, the use of data to guide instruction, high-dosage tutoring, increased instructional time, and high expectations — explains approximately 50 percent of the variation in school effectiveness

History in 140 Characters: Asking Educators to Use Twitter - Naomi Coquillon - Technolo... - 51 views

  • When I discuss Twitter in workshops, responses range from "I just don't have time for that -- it's enough to keep up with email and Facebook" to "you just can't have a conversation on Twitter." And I understand. I wasn't always so fond of Twitter. I wondered how I would ever say anything useful in 140 characters

  • What I've come to love as I use Twitter, and the value I share with these teachers, is being exposed to more thought-provoking articles than I ever had before, and learning of new resources just as soon as they become available.

Preparing to use Diigo « social media in education - 122 views

    • Tracy Tuten
       
      May need to ask Matt Long how to do this
  • Invite students using their University e-mail addresses; also invite the course administrator and another tutor (so that the Diigo work doesn’t get lost if you fall ill). Create a link from Diigo to the VLE (using the HTML code that Diigo provides) so that updates are posted to the VLE (I got the idea of using widgets found in Mason and Rennie’s on E-learning and Social Networking Handbook, 2008:83) – and possible show your Diigo ‘education pioneer’ badge too… See the screenshot from my Blackboard VLE below.

Texting vs. Teaching: Who Wins? - Class Struggle - Jay Mathews on Education - 0 views

  •  
    The standard adminstrative response is to try a new rule--like texting only during lunch--that might or might not alleviate the problem, when the answer to almost every educational mishap or distraction is not more rules, but more good teaching.

Prezi - Ideas matter. - 42 views

    • Kalin Wilburn
       
      Prezi is a zooming presentation creator. It is easy to use and offers you a 21st century presentation that doesn't even compare to PowerPoint. Your presentations can have a professional appearance without having to switch between slides or add transitional effects to each individual detail. Prezi provides you a canvas to be creative on so don't be afraid to think outside the box -- explore other Prezis to get ideas (they will blow you away).

      My middle school students learn to use Prezi easily. It helps teach them literacy skills, organization, critical thinking, and all other skills related to writing an essay or story.

      I am working with the math teacher and his students are creating a math story using Prezi. They love the program and seem to be enjoying the project so far.

      " On est en même temps sur le tableau ?! " S'exclamèrent les élèves à qui j'ai présenté l'application il'y a deux ans. Plus que l'aspect visuel flateur, la dimension collaborative synchrone en fait un véritable outil social à la sauce Web2.0
