Learning from the journey - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    There is much to be learned from journeys. From stepping out of our doors and by placing one foot in front of the other making progress towards a planned destination. journeys are a great metaphor for the challenges we face in our day to day lives and the parallels we draw may allow us to set a goal and achieve it despite the obstacles.

Beyond SAMR: The Teacher's Journey To Technology Integration | Catlin Tucker, Honors English Teacher - 3 views

  • Beyond SAMR: The Teacher’s Journey To Technology Integration Posted on October 21, 2013 by Catlin Tucker The SAMR model (substitution, augmentation, modification and redefinition) explores the impact of integrating technology on both teaching and learning. It attempts to outline a progression that educators follow in their Journey towards redefining teaching and learning with technology. I’ve used this model as a guide to identify where a particular lesson or activity falls on the spectrum of technology integration, but it does not  reflect the teacher’s evolution.

Google Lit Trips - 0 views

  •  
    "So What exactly are Google Lit Trips? The short version is simple. Google Lit Trips are free downloadable files that mark the journeys of characters from famous literature on the surface of Google Earth. At each location along the journey there are placemarks with pop-up windows containing a variety of resources including relevant media, thought provoking discussion starters, and links to supplementary information about "real world" references made in that particular portion of the story. The focus is on creating engaging and relevant literary experiences for students. I like to say Google Lit Trips "3-dimensionalize" the reading experience by placing readers "inside the story" traveling alongside the characters; looking through the windshield of that old jalopy in The Grapes of Wrath or waddling alongside Mr. and Mrs. Mallard's duckling family in Make Way for Ducklings.""

Reflections on a service trip to Fiji - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    Recently I left the cold and dark of a Sydney winter and journeyed north to the warmer climate of Fiji. A jewel dropped in the warm waters of the Pacific, Fiji is a popular holiday destination for those looking for a tropical escape. This trip was very different from the norm. There would be no resorts, no five-star dining and my company was to be a group of 24 Year Nine students. It was to be a journey full of learning and insights into the challenges facing education.

Rethinking Time to see Education as a Lifelong Journey - Lessons from Blueback - The Learner's Way - 1 views

  •  
    Blueback is a beautiful metaphor for life and particularly of the life we live in schools. When looked at close up, with an eye on the details, the experience of school is one of passing and recurring cycles. When looked at from a distance, with an eye on the whole, there are elements of constancy, the throughlines which bring meaning to our experience and which have as their consequence the residuals of education.

TeachersFirst Review - Tag Galaxy - 1 views

  •  
    Tag Galaxy is an amazing way to find a collection of Flickr images to illustrate or reinforce concepts. This site provides an unusual search tool that makes the online combing process a visual experience. This search tool pulls tags from photographs on Flickr, while taking you on a spinning journey through outer space. As the results settle, viewers come to rest in a galaxy containing one large star in the center and a series of outer planets. The central star contains all the images directly relating to the initial tag. The revolving planets consist of similar or corresponding tags. Click on a planet and additional sub-categories will appear. Click on the central star and Flickr images gather, and land on a gigantic 3D sphere. Select a photo to view, read the credits and caption. From here, it is possible to go directly to the author's Flickr Page and enjoy more photographs by the same artist. This site is also intriguing because of the way it illustrates the unfolding of the search process. It is the perfect site to use when explaining how Internet tags work, and how to organize and sort information. The site is the result of a Steven Wood's graduation thesis project while at Georg Simon Ohm University of Applied Sciences in Nuremberg.

Questions at the heart of learning - The Learner's Way - 1 views

  •  
    At the heart of learning are the questions to which we do not yet know the answers and the journey to the questions we have not yet asked. Such simple truths and yet understandings that can have fundamental consequences for approach to learning and growth.

Process vs Product in Maker-centered Learning - The Learner's Way - 1 views

  •  
    The maker movement and with it maker-centered learning brings new possibilities and challenges into the classroom. It has spawned makerspaces and students are busy designing and making products. The danger with all this frenzied making is that it is very easy to miss the point, to focus on the product and not the journey.

Becoming Learners: Making time for OUR Learning - The Learner's Way - 1 views

  •  
    At the heart of all that we do as teachers lies the act of learning. Our hope is that our actions inspire our students to engage in a process that results in their acquisition of new knowledge, mastery of new skills and the development of capacities and dispositions which will prepare them for life beyond our classrooms. Increasingly our focus is on developing the skills and dispositions our students require to become life-long learners. We recognise that in a rapidly changing world, the capacity to take charge of your personal learning journey, to become self-navigating learners is essential.

Why might we want to learn Digital Technologies? - The Learner's Way - 2 views

  •  
    Understanding the "Why" of any initiative should be a key step prior to implementation. Without a clear understanding of our "Why" how are we to judge the success of what we are implementing. How will we know which steps take us in the right direction if we have no concept of why we are journeying. In our implementation of ICT (Information & Communication Technologies) and now Digital Technologies, a lack of clarity on the matter of "Why" has often been the most significant challenge to success.

Journeys In 2.0 Teaching - powered by FeedBurner - 0 views

  • What is great about this project? Besides, all of the 2.0 technology used such as the ning, wiki, Skype, Youtube and on and on, the heart of it has to do with human connections. Some think that as soon as you add technology, you take out the human parts, but this has proved just the opposite. 
  • This is where the Arkanada Project is proving most valuable. The connections are real between the students in Cold Lake and North Little Rock. The accountability is high because the projects students are created are judged in the opinion of those who mean the most to them. We are very fortunate to work with students in NLRHS who have a lot of skill in the area of the video and television. The global impact will be further emphasized as we create content for instruction of project skills in podcast form on iTunes U and Youtube. Brining other schools into the project is also where I would like to see the project grow. More participation means more idea sharing, truly preparing our students to work in an interconnected global, media hungry world!

Journeys In 2.0 Teaching - 1 views

  • Things to come next week include scheduled Skype calls, which will provide the human contact that looking at photos and sharing video projects on our ning just can't accomplish. I've signed up as part of the Skype In Schools wiki, which has given me excellent resources. If anyone has advice for facilitating first meetings through Skype, please drop me a line on Skype (coolpoolteacher), or comment on this post! I am a novice, casual user with Skype, and perspectives on effective use of Skype would be appreciated
  • The Arkanada Project Through the use of a NING, wiki, and a blog, students in Jim's class in Arkansas will be collaborating, sharing and peer teaching my students in Cold Lake, Alberta. Jim does a student news cast live each day on local cable, and I hope to pair up students to learn about journalism, ENG, using pro tools, with a focus on real world projects. His classroom is a TV studio, complete with a newsroom, and I will be using a combination of Boinx TV and Cam Twist to do our own weekly news show. I have shared how I use Cam Twist and Ustream.tv which we will now both use to stream our shows live on the web. We will be using Skype to introduce each other's classes, and then will be setting up time when individual students can talk face to face- this is where the real world learning will begin!

Campfires in Cyberspace: Primordial Metaphors for Learning in the 21st Century - 0 views

  • The craft of multimedia design is not a linear mix of writing, image creation, sound composition, and selective placement of "button clicks" to advance to the next page. It is, instead, the storyteller's craft writ large — a new medium of expression whose ideas cannot be captured or presented in any other medium. We are experiencing the birth pains of this new craft, and it promises to be a noisy baby.
  • when the user can craft a personal pathway through the content, even if the material is already in place, this freedom of true interactivity supports the creation of unique ways to resolve the conflict established at the start of the story. Interactivity of this type is rewarding at many levels. It facilitates creativity and the development of thinking skills by the participant in the journey through story space.
  • True interactivity provides, at the minimum, the capacity to branch to different scenarios, to gather additional information, to take new twists and turns and, when very well done, to explore avenues never anticipated by the creator of the program.

Stories about time: interactive timeline tools | Instructional Design Fusions - 3 views

  • This post continues the theme of using digital storytelling tools for instruction. Good stories are usually about change or a journey that’s been made.  Sometimes stories describe change in the context of events that have occurred over time. That’s where timeline tools come in handy. In this post, I’ll review some interactive timeline generators. What does this have to do with instruction?  Sometimes it’s useful to show prior ways of doing things to see where innovation can and should occur.

‪Cultivating Communities of Practice: Making Them Grow‬‏ - YouTube - 0 views

  • Communities of Practice are everywhere (Wenger, 1998).While this may be the case, it is possible to examine an organisation and find empty spaces where opportunities to cultivate communities of practice (CoPs) exist, and as one does, many questions relating to how this journey is best started begin to arise. As there is general agreement amongst a number of CoP scholars that communities of practice cannot be designed or created (Barab et al, 2002, Wenger & Snyder, 2000), seeking to learn about best practice in encouraging these communities to develop is the next step.
