End The Classroom War On Mobile Devices - 2 views

  •  
    The author of this article tries to answer why so many teachers are resistant to mobile devices in their classrooms although their students tend to believe that smartphones and laptops can assist their learning.

Professional Guidance on the Use of Electronic Communication and Social Media - 2 views

  •  
    I do not know if a similar guide is available for Turkish teachers, but the General Teaching Council for Scotland has prepared a guidance document to help Scottish teachers with "identifying potential dangers, offering some guidance about how to avoid them and providing a context for responsible, professional use of electronic communication and social media." The guide concludes as follows: Before posting materials online stop and ask yourself: (1) Will the content reflect poorly on you, your school, employer or the teaching profession? (2) Is your intention to post this material driven by personal reasons or professional reasons? (3) Are you confident that the comment or other media in question, if accessed by others, (colleagues, parents etc) would be considered reasonable and appropriate?

Pre-service Physical Education Teachers' Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge, T... - 3 views

  •  
    In Turkey, there are limited studies in physical education and sport field related to TPACK. Shared article can be given as a good example that aimed to identify the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPACK), Technology Integration Self Efficacy (TISE) and Instructional Technology Outcome Expectations (ITOE) of pre-service physical education teachers. Findings revealed that while TPACK, TISE and ITOE perceptions of pre-service physical education teachers were at satisfactory levels, university instructors were not good role models in the use of technology in their classrooms. Pre-service teachers reported that integration of physical education and sport-related emerging technologies were almost non-existent in the teaching practices within the university setting.
  •  
    Unfortunately this is a common problem for every institute and department. Instructors are not enthusiastic and creative use of technology in classroom. In my undergraduate study in CEIT ! , we processed many courses with only PowerPoint presentations :) we learnt many technology but the integration of technology in teacher training is unfortunately insufficient.

    It is good to see that open and digital textbooks are on the rise, but I really wonder how we will motivate our future generations to read, research, be self-directed, explore, and so on. As far as I can observe current young generation, their attention span is getting shorter, and they want to reach information as quickly as possible. Plus they want digital content to be enjoyable and interactive. Reading digital books? I am not so sure... :)
  •  
    Yasin, my contention is that you cannot motivate anyone "to read, research, be self-directed, explore" id they do not wish to be motivated in the first place. It is virtually impossible. What we can do is to serve as a model to them by depicturing what they can achieve provided that they possess these skills. I totally agree with you that the amount of generation gap between us and those who are only five to ten years younger is paramount, but I am pretty sure they'll find their own way as they grow up. Or, most of them will have to if they are to lead a good life because the skills you mentioned are now regarded as survival skills.
  •  
    Yasin and Hakan, I agree with both of you. I also think that first we need to acknowledge our students are different. I may even call them humans 2.0 :) and yes their attention span is rather short and is getting shorter, and so is ours. I, as a teacher, suffer from it and have my own strategies. Maybe we can help students in that, too. Also, I really don't think they don't want to "read, research, be self-directed, explore". When something enters into their "radar", they can turn into autonomous and motivated researchers! I know that I am pointing out to the obvious, but we need te revise what we teach and how we teach. As also stated in the Horizon Report 2016: " In order to remain motivated, students need to be able to make clear connections between the curriculum and the real world, and how the new knowledge and skills will impact them."

    The results of the current study show that teachers involved in Fatih Project were especially content with being able to make their lessons visually more appealing for their students. They were, however, not satisfied with the in-service training provided, especially in understanding ways to effectively integrate the technologies into their teaching, and the limitations put upon Internet access from the tablets. The impacts of these tools on their teaching practices were very minimal.

    SITE 2016 in Savannah, Georgia, March 21-25, is the 27th annual conference of the Society for Information Technology and Teacher Education.
