Rules about technology use can undermine academic achievement - 9 views

  •  
    "Parents who restrict their children's use of new media technologies may be acting counterproductively in the long run, particularly if they invoke afterschool homework time as the reason. Their children's scholastic achievements at college lag behind the academic performance of same-age peers, a University of Zurich study shows."

Making the best use of our time with Google Forms - The Learner's Way - 38 views

  •  
    Teachers are a busy lot. We are a profession whose workload seems to be forever on the rise and as much as you do, there is always more to be done, more to be learned, new challenges to be surmounted and exciting new opportunities to be explored. For all of this it is important to make the most efficient use of the tools we have at our disposal. Google Forms can help.

      Could be a useful tool when just starting
  • Remember that it is NOT about the tools we use with our students, but the skills we are exposing them to and want them to get proficient in.
    • need to evaluate and interpret information
    • tag bookmarks (their own and/or the ones collected by their teacher)
    • summarize bookmarks (their own and/or the ones shared by teacher)
    • take advantage of “experts in the field” (by subscribing to their RSS for specific tags)
    • learn to search for relevant information beyond “googling”
    • collaborate with other members of a study group (local or global)
  • ...2 more annotations...
  • a critical mistake when introducing digital tools by assuming that armed with a username and a password, students will automatically find meaningful ways to learn together.

Social media to blame for poor grades? - 19 views

  •  
    ""Concerns regarding the allegedly disastrous consequences of social networking sites on school performance are unfounded," says Professor Markus Appel, a psychologist who holds the Chair of Media Communication at Julius-Maximilians-Universität Würzburg (JMU) in Bavaria, Germany.

    Markus Appel, PhD student Caroline Marker (JMU) and Timo Gnambs from the University of Bamberg have taken a closer look at how the social media use of adolescents correlates with their school grades. "There are several contradictory single studies on this subject and this has made it difficult previously to properly assess all results," Marker says. Some studies report negative impacts of Snapchat & Co., others describe a positive influence and again others do not find any relationship at all."

Finding a new paradise for education in times of chaos - The Learner's Way - 12 views

  •  
    Through any lens schools are complex places. A melting pot of human, social, political, economic, technological, physical and philosophical tensions. At once the stronghold of our cultural traditions and facilitators of our future wellbeing, schools serve as pillars of stability constructed at the event horizon between our now and our tomorrow. Perhaps at this point in time more than ever is this tension between the role that schools play in indoctrinating our youth into the ways of society at odds with the imperative to prepare them for their futures.

E-safety policy for schools via @esafety_Kent - 5 views

  •  
    "With technological advances moving spectacularly fast, it is difficult for schools to keep updated with e-safety policy, procedures and advice for their staff and pupils. Ensuring that everyone is informed through following policy directives can be time-consuming, and producing the documents can be equally laborious."

If Technology Fails, Use Basic Math Skills - Count Manually!! by @johnkaiser13 - 15 views

  •  
    "Technology has inevitably been inserted to nearly all aspects of our lives today. First and foremost, the use of computerised cash registers have been around for a few decades now. Trying to remember cash registers which operated without a digital display might be nearly impossible. The generation which might be able to do so has been replaced with a new generation who depend on technology to a large degree. The dependence on new technology is starting to 'show signs' of the effect of converting from our analogue counterparts. Below is an example that I recently experienced the effect of technology in a transaction at a doughnut shop."
