Girls in Tech - Reflections from VIVID Ideas - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    Sydney has become a beacon that brings people together and sparks conversations. Most recently the conversation centred on the topic of girls in tech and what might be done to re-dress the gender balance in STEAM subjects and related career pathways. Sponsored by INTEL this Vivid Ideas event drew a mix of entrepreneurs, educators and tech luminaries to the Museum of Contemporary Art on a Saturday afternoon to share their ideas on what might be done.

  • you can just enter a web address. The "autocite" often will cite your source from that URL.
  • ou can cite a book by searching by title, ISBN, or keywords
  • Students create notecards on this site and are able to color code them, group them, and move them with ease as they work with the cards. They can then drag the cards over to a special place that turns the notecards into an outline for their paper
  •  
    I have used multiple bibliography managers that import citations from journal articles, but this looks like a great way to import citations for books!

  • Turning the testing model on its headBy making the whole process more interactive, you put students in greater control of their learning, so they're more invested. Rather than top-down, it's more back-and-forth. It's more about learning for the sake of learning, not just for the sake of the grade. Getting the right answer is fun and rewarding; making mistakes is part of the learning process – less punitive, more forgiving, more encouraging.

    I am in the corporate world, and I take a lot of "boring" exams. I read a book, am expected to memorize everything in it to get a certification, there is no actual "application" or "hands on experience" required, just memorization. I am bookmarking this for future reference, because I think even at the adult level, application, and having fun while learning is absolutely key for them to actually retain what they are learning!

    hyperlinks to quiz creation sites, games...check out Google Drive. It was a good resource if the school doesn't provide another resource.
  •  
    I would create a formative quiz, similar to an exit slip to have students try at home, or from their phones to be sure they meet the daily learning target.  I want to try having students record their lab summaries, along with at least one lab trial to post to a class website as a way to review previous labs.

Education Week's Digital Directions: Students Sound Off on School Tech Use - 0 views

      I can't believe only half said they do this.
  • growing frustration among students that they have to “power down” their use of technology when they enter school buildings.
  • Outside of school, about half the 140,000 middle and high school students who participated in the survey reported using e-mail, instant-messaging tools, and text messages to communicate with classmates about homework, and the same number said they used social-networking Web sites to collaborate with their peers on school projects.

    My high school principal shared this article with the faculty, and it sheds light on the way some students feel hampered whant trying to use technology in school. It offers some student insight and some surprising issues. Students don't use technology to communicate with others about homework as often as I thought. Also, students are well-aware of budgetary constraints.
