Finding a new paradise for education in times of chaos - The Learner's Way - 11 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."

Good Reads for Great Assessment - The Learner's Way - 43 views

  •  
    Recently I have been diving into the world of Assessment, seeking to better understand how we might design effective processes around this essential phase of the learning cycle. In doing so I have found a wealth of resources and quality reads that offer insights and strategies to be applied into our classrooms. Here then is a sampling of what I have been reading.

Why such a rapid pace of change? - The Learner's Way - 14 views

  •  
    I am currently reading "Thank you for being late: An optimist's guide to thriving in the age of accelerations" and have found in this the answer to these questions. In essence we are confronting two types of change, one that we have always faced and one that is unique to our current times.

Digital Natives: Do They Really THINK Differently? - 41 views

  •  
    by Marc Prensky Our children today are being socialized in a way that is vastly different from their parents. The
    numbers are overwhelming: over 10,000 hours playing videogames, over 200,000 emails and
    instant messages sent and received; over 10,000 hours talking on digital cell phones; over 20,000
    hours watching TV (a high percentage fast speed MTV), over 500,000 commercials seen-all
    before the kids leave college. And, maybe, at the very most, 5,000 hours of book reading. These
    are today's ―Digital Native‖ students.
    1
    In Digital Natives, Digital Immigrants: Part I, I discussed how the differences between our Digital
    Native students and their Digital Immigrant teachers lie at the root of a great many of today's
    educational problems. I suggested that Digital Natives' brains are likely physically different as a
    result of the digital input they received growing up. And I submitted that learning via digital
    games is one good way to reach Digital Natives in their ―native language.‖
    Here I present evidence for why I think this is so. It comes from neurobiology, social psychology, and from studies done on children using games for learning.

    Hi.

    I wrote a paper about digital natives as part of an anthropology assignment for a doctoral course. Researchers from around the world have empirically proven that Prensky's theories are false. Additionally, while neuroscience has shown that brains do change as a result of neuroplasticity, to argue that it is generational is also a false claim.

    Though cognitive theory shows that learners bring their prior experiences to the interpretation of new educational opportunities - impacting attention and interpretation - all generations have had this occur. There is merit to the point that we should take learner's prior experience into consideration when designing instruction; however, Prensky's digital native claims may have done more to create tension between students and teachers than to provide instructional support.

    If you would like any of the scholarly studies, I have a published reference list at http://brholland.com/reference-list.

      There are moany online businesses on facebook. I can't even begin to htink about the number of people selling Rodan and Fields, 31, etc...

      - My negihbor works n the prison and she still can't have a cell phone

      - You have ti be careful what you ike and don't like because that could look bad to potential employrs. You have tore realize that your posts are seen by everyone. Ha! Line 23 just said wthe same thing!

      - Why can't stuents, exmployees, have personel lives and live them on facebook. How you are in a social speace does not define you as an employee, students, etc...

      Okay- this background- checking service that takes pictures and keeps themfor 7 years is skechy!

      - It is scary to think that anything we post can be used by anyone for any purpose.

      Really? We are monitored if we type in a cerain term? Pork seems abit scary in that a certain group is clearly being targeted here.

      - I do like the advanteages soical media can bring to horrific siutation: missing children. thefts, etc... It can really help people find who they are looking for: parents looking for birth children, etc...

      -- Streaming in our own state on facebook of cop shooting


      F"Facebook holds the cards , and its citizens have little recourse- other than to leave the service entirely." ( ) scary! page 9

      - ads on facebook r targeted to us for what we search which is unsettling. Facebook knows alot about me!

      - Where do companies like Spokeo get all of our information???
      Ahh- okay I see. But because they claim they are out there for entertainment that do not have to be accurate and can post that stuff??

Reflections from EduTech 2017 - The Learner's Way - 24 views

  •  
    EduTech in Sydney has been a remarkable experience. A grand celebration of education and an energising gathering of educators ready to share stories and make connections. Despite the rainy weather some 8000 educators came together in the inspiring new International Convention Centre at Darling Harbour and left two days later with hers full of new ideas and wonderings of what might be the future of education. With many ideas still bubbling away here is a brief list of the key take-aways.

Learning by playing, tinkering and making - The Learner's Way - 41 views

    Play is a vital tool for learning. It should be vital part of every child's learning; the norm rather than the exception and we leave it behind as we become adults to our own peril.

The art of modern writing - The Learner's Way - 53 views

  •  
    Learning to write is one of the fundamental skills we gain from our time at school. Writing is one of the cornerstones of learning and we devote significant time and energy towards its mastery. Skilled writing is a mark of an educated individual and a skill required for academic success. But in the modern world what makes a skilled writer? What has changed about writing and what literary skills should we focus our attention on.
