Howard Gardner: 'Multiple intelligences' are not 'learning styles' - 8 views

  •  
    A discussion of the difference between Multiple Intelligences & Learning Styles, as well as three tips for teachers:
    1. Individualize your teaching as much as possible. Instead of "one size fits all," learn as much as you can about each student, and teach each person in ways that they find comfortable and learn effectively
    2. Pluralize your teaching. Teach important materials in several ways, not just one
    3. Drop the term "styles." It will confuse others and it won't help either you or your students."

YouTube Audio Library Features Tons of Free Music to Use in Classroom Multimedia Projec... - 5 views

  •  
    Some good news today from YouTube. I just learned about this gigantic step YouTube took by allowing people to download music for free from its new service called YouTube Audio Library. This is not a comprehensive library and don't expect to find every piece of music you want there but still it is a very good start and is one of the best platforms we can use with our students to access free music downloads.

CourseSmart E-Textbooks Track Students' Progress for Teachers - NYTimes.com - 4 views

    "SAN ANTONIO - Several Texas A&M professors know something that generations of teachers could only hope to guess: whether students are reading their textbooks."
    They know when students are skipping pages, failing to highlight significant passages, not bothering to take notes - or simply not opening the book at all.

The Digital Education Revolution comes to an end. Where now? | isupport - 2 views

  •  
    The final round of government funding is currently being distributed to schools all around Australia. So far over 967,000 computers have been bought, infrastructure built and (most) teachers up-skilled to benefit from the acquisition. But as the funds come to an end, many school principals are wondering if the process has been beneficial, and how can they continue to support and progress the Digital Education Revolution?

How To Address Negative Student Behavior in 1:1 Classrooms | Edudemic - 1 views

  •  
    I strongly believe that technology is going to completely revolutionize the classroom. But when are we going to start addressing the negative aspects of the one-to-one classroom? When are we going to acknowledge the fact that just because every student has a device it does not mean that they will get a 36 on the ACT? I have seen videos of babies that can play with an iPad, but that does not mean that high school students intuitively know how to use one to effectively collaborate and communicate in the classroom.
