The digital classroom - RN Future Tense - 13 May 2010 - 7 views

  • we do a lot of school to students, instead of telling them and explaining to them, what is our vision? Why are we giving them laptops? It's not because they deserve them. It's because we expect something to change in education. Why aren't we telling them these things? Why aren't we sharing our vision with them, because they can help?
  • get kids communicating with one another outside their own circle of friends
  • create challenges on the web for kids to collaborate, that lead to more social interaction rather than less.
  • ...7 more annotations...
  • challenges for them is, how do they create learning opportunities that are beyond for example, a worksheet, or beyond that listening to the teacher and doing what the teacher says, and they've really worked very hard to develop those skills.
  • exploring what other people are doing around the world.
  • they have to learn about copyright, and they need to learn about cyber safety.
  • they perhaps don't understand the consequences of what they might put up there.
  • 'If games are the answer, what's the question?'
  • having kids make their own games
  • Are you going to sit passively and wait for the information to come to you, or are you going to go out and find it and if you can't find it, you make it.

    From Camilla Elliott. A gateway to understanding life outside your home. Use the country comparison tool to compare living conditions in your own country to those of another. You can also use the visualisation tool to help understand the impact of a disaster. The Pakistan Flood and BP Oil Spill are currently featured. Advertising and comments are a problem for classroom use but still a valuable teaching tool.

Larry Magid: Online Safety Tied to Real World Behavior - 2 views

  • technology can change the way people bully, but bullying is still bullying. Whether it happens through text messages, on Facebook, in a chat room or in the schoolyard, it still involves repeated harassment and typically an imbalance of power between the victim and the bully.
  • Cyberbullying does have unique aspects, though -- the bully can be invisible and actions can quickly go viral, involving lots of people "piling on" a single victim.
  •  
    "Internet safety" is mostly about behavior in the blended world where kids live on and offline. How they treat themselves and others has a big impact on whether their experiences will be good or bad.  And it's true for adults as well. While there are unique aspects to protecting yourself online, many of the major online risk factors -- especially for children -- have their offline equivalents.

The Web In Numbers: The Rise Of Social Media - 0 views

  •  
    The Web in Numbers: The Rise of Social Media numbers12009 is the year of social media. Once, Twitter (Twitter reviews) was a place where you could read about someone else's cat. Now, it's the first place you go to when there's breaking news. Sites like Digg (Digg reviews), Reddit (reddit.com reviews), and Facebook (Facebook reviews) can now leave a huge impact on the real world; lives are changed, important questions are asked (and answered) there. Many milestones have been reached; the growth of nearly every aspect of social media has and continues to be enormous. We've dug up some amazing statistics and numbers from this realm.

Technologically Externalized Knowledge and Learning « Connectivism - 2 views

  •  
    Reformers have largely worked within, rather than on, the system of education. Working within the system has resulted in status-quo preservation, even when reformists felt they were being radical. Illich failed to account for how educational institutions are integrated into society. Freire spoke with a humanity and hope that was largely overlooked by a comfortable developed world incapable of seeing the structure and impact of its system. To create and nurture change, a message must not only be true for an era, but it must also resonate with the needs, passions, interests, realities, and hopes of the audience to whom the message is directed.

Collaborative Schooling - 0 views

  •  
    "Collaborative schooling is a model where the school collaborates with, and provides direction and support for its homes and community. It recognizes the profound impact the home has upon education and that in most of the students' homes and communities there is a vast, largely untapped 'teaching' capacity. It therefore seeks to integrate the efforts of the home and the school. The school has already recognized the opportunities the network and digital technologies provide for the school to network and work collaboratively with their homes and desired parts of their school community. This is seen in the following:"

Lingua Franca - 18 June 2011 - Learning oral language - 2 views

  •  
    Oracy the ugly sister to numeracy and literacy how children hear and develop the capacity to speak in their communications has profound impact. Teachers are assuming behaviors are personality rather than oracy. Strategies can be developed to observe and assist with oracy. An ABC Radio interview listen or read transcript also there's a follow up session regards self efficacy and oracy. Short!

The little things that make a difference - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    In teaching it is often the little things we do on a daily basis that have the largest cumulative effect. While the events, festivals, camps and more spectacular lessons may stand out in our memories these moments have less overall impact across the time that our students spend in our company. Getting these little details right however is a complex business that demands we bring our best to every interaction, every lesson and every opportunity we have to shape the minds and dispositions of our learners. The result is that there are no easy lessons, no easy days.

How to teach students to build a positive online identity | eSchool News | eSchool News - 3 views

  •  
    "Students understand the power of social media but are they making good decisions about what to post online? How can we, as educators, help them understand not just the immediacy of their posts but also the permanence of online communications? Learning is becoming more digital and educators at all levels should be instrumental in building students' understanding about how their online presence impacts both their personal and future professional lives. Educators are also instrumental in helping students develop lifelong habits to create and maintain a positive online identity. You can look to the 2015 ISTE White Paper, Building and Keeping a Positive Digital Identity, to help kids be more intentional in what they post online. This paper applies ISTE standards to the idea of building and maintaining a positive online identity. It poses five questions adults can use to kick-start meaningful conversations about online behaviour and identity."

Why banning technology is not the answer - The Learner's Way - 0 views

  •  
    There is something about human nature that draws us towards dichotomous patterns of thought; an all or nothing, us or them style of thinking in which an option is either good or it is bad. In such a model complexity and subtle nuance with multiple possible outcomes and routes towards a goal are ignored. The field of educational technology is one where such a pattern is evident and recent ban on technology by a Sydney school shows how this style of analysis can have a significant impact on student learning.

DERN Research Review - Young Children on the Internet - 1 views

  •  
    "The use of the internet by younger children, from 0 to 8 years, may have both benefits and risks. Research into how the Internet is used by young children and the effects on children's development is relatively uncommon compared to research about older learners. However, more and more young children are using the Internet yet so little is understood about the impact on their growth and development."

Why borrowing from the 'best' school systems sounds good - but isn't - The Washington Post - 0 views

  • In education, too, the impact of policy borrowing is far less immediate or impressive. For those who work in classrooms and schools, the inconvenient truth is that the real benefits of borrowing from the best are not always visible or tangible.
  • Policies can be easily borrowed, but the processes of implementation that make them work in context largely cannot
  • *Take effective design principles rather than entire policies, and develop new approaches based on these. *Develop such approaches in context by drawing heavily upon the good and effective practice that already resides within the system. *Put in place high-quality implementation processes so that the impact of any new approach will be maximized. *Invest in continued adaptation and refinement of any new initiative or intervention to ensure a close cultural and contextual fit.

Learning and Cognitive Load - Part Two - 0 views

  •  
    There are three cognitive loads that impact the efficient formation of schemas. Extraneous cognitive load are those not directly required to master a task and have a negative impact on schema formation, reducing these is desirable and can be achieved through efficient design. Intrinsic cognitive load is that which is inherent in the task and for the most part cannot be reduced. Tasks with high intrinsic cognitive load are by nature more complex for an individual and in the long term are managed through equally complex schema. Germane cognitive load refers to the mental resources devoted to the efficient formation of schemas and is seen to have a positive effect on learning. Understanding these things will allow us to more effectively target our efforts as learners and teachers ensuring the cognitive load theory has a valuable role to play.

The Australian Curriculum v7.0 Technologies: Rationale - 0 views

  •  
    "Technologies enrich and impact on the lives of people and societies globally. Australia needs enterprising individuals who can make discerning decisions about the development and use of technologies and who can independently and collaboratively develop solutions to complex challenges and contribute to sustainable patterns of living. Technologies can play an important role in transforming, restoring and sustaining societies and natural, managed, and constructed environments."

    "Policy makers and researchers have long focused on trying to combat 'disengaged' behaviours, rather than on understanding and promoting engagement among students. This focus only captures part of the issue - engagement is a complex cognitive process, including a student's psychological investment in their own learning and personal learning strategies.1 The internal nature of much engagement means that it is difficult to define and measure. As such, it has been hard for researchers and policy makers to determine which solutions can aid engagement and the impact student engagement can have on learning outcomes."
