44 Better Ways To Use Smartphones In The Classroom

Its title read “94 Percent of High School Students Using Cellphones in Class.” I immediately scoped out the heading and thought to myself, “Finally, teachers are beginning to embrace the powerful little gadgets.” However, it did not take me long to realize the researched article took quite a different slant. One quotation in particular caused serious professional introspection on my behalf. I understand the tougher task of using regular cell phones in class versus internet ready smartphones, however , I could not disagree more with the above quotation. A blessed trip to the ISTE 2011 conference in Philadelphia helped me devise a BYOD classroom management plan and opened my eyes to the infinite educational potential of smartphones in the classroom.

The Commons Deed is a handy reference for licensors and licensees, summarizing and expressing some of the most important terms and conditions. Think of the Commons Deed as a user-friendly interface to the Legal Code beneath, although the Deed itself is not a license, and its contents are not part of the Legal Code itself.

Only, it wasn't. I couldn't coax students to stop writing. I made several announcements to save and export work to Google Drive and to put away computers. Students continued to pore through the books and online sources to learn more details about major battles in the American Revolution. The class bell did not seem to faze anyone. Students were using interactive fiction tools to reimagine American Revolution battles as text-based adventures, written from the second-person perspective. Mappe Concettuali. Teacher tools 2.0.

Content curation is “…the process of collecting, organizing and displaying information relevant to a particular topic.

Teaching with Content Curation

Storify: create stories or timelines using social media such as Twitter, Facebook and Instagram. A Comprehensive Guide to Content Curation. Depending on your point of view, content on the internet can be a vast collection of treasures, a cesspool swimming in filth, or a big pile of gold specks mixed in with an even bigger pile of dirt.

A Comprehensive Guide to Content Curation

Similar to museum curators, content curators sift through a seemingly never-ending amount of digital objects to unearth individual items worthy of being showcased for a specific audience.

It helps to think of a content curator as someone who’s editing a print magazine. Image from. What Is Content Curation: Definition. AulaBlog. Cura dei contenuti by Gianfranco Marini on Prezi.
