Educon 2.1 - 0 views

  •  
    EduCon 2.1 is both a conversation and a conference. And it is not a technology conference. It is an education conference. It is, hopefully, an innovation conference where we can come together, both in person and virtually, to discuss the future of schools. Every session will be an opportunity to discuss and debate ideas -- from the very practical to the big dreams.

Effects of Technology on Classrooms and Students - 0 views

  • Students clearly take pride in being able to use the same computer-based tools employed by professionals. As one teacher expressed it, "Students gain a sense of empowerment from learning to control the computer and to use it in ways they associate with the real world." Technology is valued within our culture. It is something that costs money and that bestows the power to add value. By giving students technology tools, we are implicitly giving weight to their school activities. Students are very sensitive to this message that they, and their work, are important.

      Many of my disadvantaged students respond the most positively to using the computer activities. This could be because they see technology as valuable.
  • When students are using technology as a tool or a support for communicating with others, they are in an active role rather than the passive role of recipient of information transmitted by a teacher, textbook, or broadcast. The student is actively making choices about how to generate, obtain, manipulate, or display information.

      This makes the learning much more interesting for each student. It makes the learning a very personal experience even though all the students are doing similar tasks at their computers. Some teachers think a computer activity is impersonal but my experience shows the opposite.

Hoover Institution - Education Next - How Do We Transform Our Schools? - 0 views

    • Will deBock
       
      This is an interesting article, but I think they are missing something. "The Current Labor Instensive System" is going to be the engine of disruption in online learning, not stand-alone, "smart", adaptive "Computer-Based Learning." Teachers and students empowered with smaller, quicker disruptive technologies (twitter, ustream, blog and wikis) will be the "disruptive" engine. It may not be in K-12 education either. The place to look is adult education online.

Group Linkrolls - educators | Diigo Groups - 1 views

  •  
    Group linkrolls for the diigo group that can be filtered by tag. This is very useful for pD.
  •  
    The educators group on Diigo now has a linkroll which will allow you to share things. The power of this is that if you are a science teacher, you can filter everything and only share science. Same for all subject areas.

    I've turned on preapproval for this group to keep the spam out because we are approaching 500 members in this group. Remember, when you bookmark to diigo, check share to a group and then pick educators and at least one standard tag (you can use more.)
