Inside the School Silicon Valley Thinks Will Save Education | WIRED - 9 views

    "AUTHOR: ISSIE LAPOWSKY. ISSIE LAPOWSKY DATE OF PUBLICATION: 05.04.15. 05.04.15 TIME OF PUBLICATION: 7:00 AM. 7:00 AM INSIDE THE SCHOOL SILICON VALLEY THINKS WILL SAVE EDUCATION Click to Open Overlay Gallery Students in the youngest class at the Fort Mason AltSchool help their teacher, Jennifer Aguilar, compile a list of what they know and what they want to know about butterflies. CHRISTIE HEMM KLOK/WIRED SO YOU'RE A parent, thinking about sending your 7-year-old to this rogue startup of a school you heard about from your friend's neighbor's sister. It's prospective parent information day, and you make the trek to San Francisco's South of Market neighborhood. You walk up to the second floor of the school, file into a glass-walled conference room overlooking a classroom, and take a seat alongside dozens of other parents who, like you, feel that public schools-with their endless bubble-filled tests, 38-kid classrooms, and antiquated approach to learning-just aren't cutting it. At the same time, you're thinking: this school is kind of weird. On one side of the glass is a cheery little scene, with two teachers leading two different middle school lessons on opposite ends of the room. But on the other side is something altogether unusual: an airy and open office with vaulted ceilings, sunlight streaming onto low-slung couches, and rows of hoodie-wearing employees typing away on their computers while munching on free snacks from the kitchen. And while you can't quite be sure, you think that might be a robot on wheels roaming about. Then there's the guy who's standing at the front of the conference room, the school's founder. Dressed in the San Francisco standard issue t-shirt and jeans, he's unlike any school administrator you've ever met. But the more he talks about how this school uses classroomnology to enhance and individualize education, the more you start to like what he has to say. And so, if you are truly fed up with the school stat

    Globe and Mail visual graph: Is technology a boon or burden in the tech? As the world becomes increasingly digital, school boards are trying to negotiate technology's role in the tech. Some have embraced digital tools, enhancing their techs with Smartboards, cell phones and social media. Others have favoured tradition, claiming technology is a distraction and a nuisance. Where do Globe readers stand? Each dot on this graph represents one person's response colour-coded by age group.

Educators Evaluate 'Flipped Classrooms' | Andrew K. Miller - 74 views

  • replacing traditional classroom lectures with video tutorials
    • Bob Rowan
      This isn't a complete definition of flipped classrooms
  • there are a multitude of ways to “flip” a classroom
  • criticism from some who believe that flipping is simply a high-tech version of an antiquated instructional method: the lecture

  • a better version of a bad thing
  • Tips for Flipping
  • Don’t get hung up on creating your own videos
  • be intentional about when to flip
    • Bob Rowan
      Don't flip just for the sake of flipping, but this sort of reminder should not be required any longer with any new teaching technique
  • find a partner
  • find alternatives for students who lack Internet access
    • Bob Rowan
      this isn't any issue for many schools, but it important to note when presenting flipped classrooms to a wider variety of educators
  • engage students in the videos
    • Margaret FalerSweany
      One approach is to assign watching the video and then a low-stakes assignment--such as a quiz over key points, or having them write a short response to a key question that will be discussed the next class, or to write about what was unclear, new, or useful from the material.
  • given an outline for each unit that includes all the resources they might need for each objective
  • sets deadlines to keep everyone on track

  • Gates Foundation has invested just under $9 million in a program administered by education nonprofit EDUCAUSE that will allow 20 schools to figure out a solid, financially sustainable way to achieve personalized learning as part of a program called Next Generation Learning Challenges. All of the schools awarded grants will use some combination of digital and traditional instruction.
  • every move a student makes in a digital course will be tracked and analyzed to not only change a program to meet a student's current needs, but to track a student's progress—and determine their educational needs—not just during a given course, but throughout their lives.

Who's running Quality Control and Fact Checking in a Tech Rich, Differentiated, Personalised Tech? - 10 views

    At first glance, teachers may point to the fact that today's curriculum is not about content knowledge any more. It's about skill development, creativity, collaboration and communication. At a simplistic level, that may be partly true. We can't escape the fact, though, that accuracy and understanding is still paramount. While an 8 year old will survive making the odd misinterpretation or copying the wrong information down, a 20 year old medical student can't be confusing a pharynx with a larynx or thinking a 3:4 ratio means 3/4 and 1/4. So the question needs to be asked - How well are we dealing with Quality Control and Fact Checking in the Differentiated, Personalised Classroom? This one question brings up a whole lot more questions that every teacher needs t0 consider.
