Technology and school-home communication - ProQuest - 4 views

    There are four facets to this study which include, parental engagement; school-home communications; technology, communication and parental engagement with children's learning; and the importance of technology for communication in families with older children. This study examines the use of technology for communication and the impact on student learning as a result. Often students are more invested in their learning and have higher achievement rates. Additionally, the communication should be two way, as when the school sends one way communication it is not viewed as an invitation for involvement into their student's education.

Must Have Apps for Project Based Learning - Technology Tools for Teachers - 1 views

  • Instead of just verbally Introducing the Project to your students, show them a TED Talk that is thought-provoking.

      Good Idea!
  • When conducting Research, Google Apps are a must with PBL. Students are able to collaborate and teachers can post their own comments. Students and teachers can use Google Drive to save and share information. I use Google Sites to post resources so students aren’t spending most of their time searching.
    Some really good ideas to incorporate technology with PBL

  • Willmar Middle School has implemented a new initiative to eliminate student apathy and reduce the number of missing assignments students have during the school year in order to increase student learning. We value this initiative because when students complete their assignments with high quality they are giving a true depiction of what they have learned. In order to accomplish the goal of reducing the number of students with missing or incomplete assignments, we are following the philosophies found in the book, The Power of the ICU. Danny Hill, co-author of the book, states that “ICU stands for Intensive Care Unit and it implies that a student’s academic situation is “sick” and needs the attention of the school’s staff.” A key component is to create an ICU list. When a student has missing or incomplete assignments, their teacher will put them on the ICU list. All staff that work with the student has access to the list and work collaboratively to help that student complete their assignments. Parents/guardians have an important role in this initiative as well. They receive an email/text when their student is on the ICU list. Students are given extra time to attend the ICU Classroom before school (7:15-7:45), during their lunch time, or after school (2:30-3:00). In the end, the goal is to end student apathy by providing extra time and extra support for our students to complete their assignments with high quality and learn the valuable content. Together we will help our Willmar Middle School students be successful learners!
