Google+ Communities - Where I'm At | - 3 views

  • My #1 rule to make a community work is that I no longer accept e-mails unless it is a personal issue. Instead all communication outside of class goes to the community. Questions from students become conversations and this is where the real learning happens. Communication has greatly improved in my class, especially for my ESL and shyer students.

      Excellent point, email only addresses questions unilaterally. While appropriate for personal issues, email is a terrible blended learning tool.

    I cannot get enough of the new add-on features in Google Docs and Spreadsheets. Granted, they are just re-engineered scripts from the gallery, but this feature how now made them so much easier to find and configure. If you're not excited by this, you're not using GAFE!

Students Find Ways To Hack School-Issued iPads Within A Week : All Tech Considered : NPR - 67 views

  • "Children are growing up today [with] the iPad used as a device for entertainment. So when the iPad comes into the classroom, then there's a shift in everybody's thinking."

    And sometimes that shift is hard for everybody. Hobbs says this isn't the first time educators have tried to co-opt things that lots of people use for fun.

    "Back in the 1930s, there was a big initiative to use radio in education," says Hobbs. "It was the original distance education." But, Hobbs says, that all fizzled out.

    "Within a decade, we discovered that the commercial use of radio, for soap operas and music shows and game shows, actually eclipsed the educational use of radio. And the entertainment function is just so [dominant]. You can't compete," Hobbs says.

      This is so very true! Trying to engage students with what adults think are their trends bears terrible potential for perceptual error. A European study recently reported a decline in teen use of Facebook as parents and schools were beginning to get more and more involved.




      Engagement in learning is accomplished through meaningful experience. The context for which is unique to the learning outcomes and not necessarily what's trending.
