Constructivism (learning theory) - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia - 0 views

  • Simply stated, it is a learning process which allows a student to experience an environment first-hand, thereby, giving the student reliable, trust-worthy knowledge. The student is required to act upon the environment to both acquire and test new knowledge.
  • According to Kliebard[2], John Dewey created an active intellectual learning environment in his laboratory school during the early 20th century. Neuroscience now supports this form of active learning as the way people naturally learn[3].

PowerPoint Presentations Beyond Note Taking: Education Technology Applications That Imp... - 0 views

  •  
    The use of PowerPoint presentations in schools takes advantage of education technology integration strategies and techniques. However, student learning is not improved when these presentations are merely a substitute for note taking bullets from older overhead projectors. To take advantage of the power of this technology, the elimination of boring slide shows must be replaced with interactive story telling that keeps students engaged.

The Great Depression Unit - 2 views

  •  
    It is great that as teachers we can use technology to find lesson plans that contribute or assist to our own lesson plans. This site has an entire unit on The Great Depression and New Deal that involves multiple research based strategies such as cooperative learning and non linguistic representation. I actually used one of the lessons during my practicum and the kids loved it!

Graphic Organizers - 0 views

  •  
    I found this website that offers free graphic organizers for teachers to help them provide a varied, exciting curriculum. These GOs can be used in all subjects. I think it is important to include organizers such as these in our curriculum to especially assist in students with special needs and culturally/linguistically diverse individuals. Enjoy!!

    "At Google, the only thing we love as much as science is science education. We want to celebrate young scientific talent and engage students who might not yet be engaged with science. So, in partnership with CERN, the LEGO Group, National Geographic, and Scientific American we've created an exciting new global science competition, the Google Science Fair. Students all over the world who are between the ages of 13 and 18 are eligible to enter this competition and compete for prizes including once-in-a-lifetime experiences, internships and scholarships.

Unwrapping the Gifted - 0 views

  •  
    I really love this blog site because it is all about teaching those special students in your classrooms whose needs are quickly met, but who get bored easily with the mundaneness of school. This is a big issue I've struggled with myself--trying to keep my gifted students fully active and participating in everything we do--and I have already found several helpful hints on this site. It includes some neat ideas for technology inclusion, as well. The more educated we are about the diversity of our students and their specific needs, the better we can meet those needs and educate our students with a whole range of abilities.

    This is a great place to find top-notch lectures on various topics. I found this when looking up string theory. They have lecture series as well, and frankly, they're really, really cool. This could be great for all teachers, I think!

Learn French With Daily Podcasts - 0 views

  •  
    This website and others like it allow you to keep your French skills strong with daily updates about what's happening in the Francophone world.
  •  
    I forgot to mention why this is so important to me as an educator, but I figured it was pretty obvious--I'm going into language teaching and if I don't maintain my fluency one way or another, my students will get nothing but repetitive and maybe incorrect phrases...short of moving to France for total immersion this is the best way to stay current with the language.

    The collective blog of those on the front lines for Teach for America. Although I don't necessarily agree with the TFA program, these teachers are teaching students who are just like the ones I will teach some day.

Teaching History with Technology - 0 views

    This is a great teaching resource for History teachers. It shares some great ideas about lesson plans, projects, activities, etc.
  •  
    I found this useful website that has many links and sources for history teachers trying to incorporate technology into their classes. They seem to provide quite a bit of support. I think I will like this site.
  •  
    This is a great website for history teachers. It provides a comprehensive guide to teaching history with various types of technology. It includes different links to websites that provide technological lesson plans and activities, most of which I found could be very useful in a history classroom. The site also gives ideas on creating presentations and using multimedia in the classroom. Another great feature the site provides is the ability to discuss and collaborate with other history teachers - it provides blogs, Wikis, and even Google docs.

    It's a great way for English teachers and students to keep track of the books they've read and be able to remember them. It's also a great way to share what books you've read. You can makes groups and have discussions, too.
