Integrating Educational Technology in the Classroom - 1. Meaningful Learning

Key Understandings - These are some general concepts that you should know before we breakdown Meaningful Learning.1. Learning is driven by understanding and persisting on a task/activity (one of the reasons the USA's 'No Child Left Behind' program doesn't work, and why we hope it doesn't come to Quebec).2.

Cyberbaiting Athima Chansanchai Nov. 18, 2011 at 10:40 AM ET Symantec / Findings from the Norton Online Family Report A new report on kids' online habits reveals a "growing phenomenon" of "cyberbaiting," in which kids taunt teachers to yelling or breakdowns and then record their reactions using cellphone camcorders.

Report: More kids 'cyberbaiting' teachers

Interviews with 2,379 teachers of students aged 8-17 for the Norton Online Family Report showed that one in five of them (21 percent) surveyed had experienced "cyberbaiting," and dealt with the fallout of "further shame or trouble" afterward. Perhaps some of this interaction comes from 34 percent of teachers who are "friends" with their students on social networks. 一萬個小時的創意練習. 最近看到一個理論(但其實他在09年就提出了),是【異數】的作者:葛拉威爾(Malcolm Gladwell)所提出,她認為,成就一種專業,需要一萬個小時的練習,以每天練習3小時的來算,一共需要十年才會成功!


十年磨一劍 葛拉威爾(Malcolm Gladwell)在書中舉了莫札特的例子,據說莫札特在6歲的時候就會作曲,是典型的天才兒童,但有研究指出,莫札特早期的作品可能是父親幫忙修改,或是改編他人的作品而來,其實沒有特別厲害。 而最具原創的作品-第九號鋼琴協奏曲,則是莫札特在21歲時寫出來的,以6歲就開始創作來算,莫札特持續創作了超過10年才寫出代表性的作品。 舉個現代一點的例子,創立Angry Bird的Rovio公司現在被視為取代nokia的另一個芬蘭奇蹟。 但在做出Angry Bird之前,他們已經跌到50幾次,累積了多年的能量,才有今天的成就。 Nancy Duarte TED 演講:視覺溝通的九大法則.

Scrible 網路研究員專用的網頁註解、筆記剪貼雲端個人資料庫

筆記? 剪貼? 這些功能看起來都似曾相似,例如我之前介紹過兩款很不錯的網頁註解分享服務:「」和「Awesome Highlighter」,讓我們隨意在網站裡畫重點並分享給朋友看;又或者說到網頁筆記與剪貼,大家應該也會立刻聯想到「Evernote」這類的服務。 但是今天要介紹的「Scrible」雖然主要功能就是網頁註解、筆記剪貼,但是它的訴求有一點不同,而更趨向雲端版「ScrapBook(知名firefox剪貼資料庫)」。 教與學電子報 - 從促進教師發展「學科教學科技知識」能力之觀點... 然而,教師修煉自己成為一個本科專業的飽學之士,是否就算得上是位稱職的教師呢? 可能不止於此,不斷精進專業領域知識是身為教師的本分而已,更重要的是──如何將學科專業內容透過「適合」的方式「教會」學生才是卓越教師的價值所在。 古今中外,一般人對師資的價值觀多專注在教學者的「專業領域知識」(domain knowledge)上──亦即著眼於教學者擁有的學歷文憑、經歷職銜,以及證照著作等,因為這些客觀的、可具體「量化」的實證資料,更勝過「質性」的、內隱的,以及個人主觀認定的教學策略與技巧能力。 Engaging Students, Transforming Schools.

Getting Organized

McDavid I have had many teachers stop by my room to ask how I keep things so well organized. I have had other teachers to ask if I would consider teaching a staff development course at our school to help teachers become better organized. Truly it's the small details that make the biggest impact. Organizing the classroom takes time, dedication, and determination but once things are put together the classroom will run smoothly. Materials You Will Need ~ Back to the Top ~ Purge Unused Materials and Non Essential ItemsAs teachers we tend to hoard materials and supplies that we think might come in handy one day. Organizing the Teacher's DeskThe teacher's desk can become a dumping ground for paperwork, papers that need to be filed, correspondence from the main office, items that need to be read or evaluated, and papers that need to be held for future reference.

The next step is designating an area to file your paperwork. I use two different To Do Lists.
