Una tiza y tú. 1 to 1 programs are so 2007 «Ideas and Thoughts from an EdTech. The question of "what should a classroom" look like in terms of technology has been asked many times in our district and in many places. The whole pursuit of one to one computing is still somewhat interesting but in recent times I've been trying to think a little differently about this idea. During a recent presentation I dared to say : Certainly a statement like this will elicit a great deal of discussion as is should. My point here is that my thinking about one to one computing which has been ongoing for at least 6-7 years has focused on purchasing laptops for every student. That may still have merit in some instances but I think we have to move beyond that single path and begin to explore a variety of options and configurations that truly do enhance learning.

The idea of BYOT (Bring your own technology) is beginning to take shape. Frasier Speirs argues against such a model. "It assumes every child has a mobile phone. " Related Posts February 3, 2007 -- How much laptop do we need? Learning to Change – Changing to Learn [VIDEO] Push. I was very excited to be asked to write the introduction for an e-book that Richard Byrne is putting together to share with educators next week. I am really hoping that I can give that little push to educators to start using these free technologies to connect kids around the world. In the spirit of sharing, the introduction is below. cc licensed flickr photo shared by stevendepolo “The times they are a-changing.”

Bob Dylan This is probably the most overused, yet most relevant quote on the planet. Here is something that hasn’t changed though: the best teaching is always built upon relationships. Now, take that good teaching and equip it with the advancing technology we now have at our fingertips. Here is a problem: you may not feel comfortable with this technology. What is your goal? The best thing about this technology is that it is built upon the same premise of good teaching: relationships. Elementos para construir nuestro Entorno Social de Aprendizaje (SLE) Son muchas las presentaciones que existen en la red sobre PLEs (Personal Learning Environment) y PLNs (Personal Learning Network), pero pocas se refieren a la reciente definición realizada por Jane Hart, que acuñó el vocablo SLE (Social Learning Environment), como un lugar donde personas y grupos pueden compartir y crear colaborativamente contenido y experiencias educativas, aprendiendo unos de los otros para mejorar su capacidad docente.

Puede ser usado para extender el contenido formal, y favorecer la interacción entre alumnos y docentes. Normalmente se trata de un entorno bastante informal, en el que se van agregando paulatinamente más elementos (desconocidos a priori), que permiten mejorar la experiencia en el aprendizaje. No es objeto del SLE gestionar, controlar y hacer un seguimiento de los usuarios, pero provee de un entorno abierto para trabajar y aprender de forma colaborativa. Teachers Pick Their Top 5 Back-To-School Tech Tools. American consumers will shell out an estimated $2.6 billion for back-to-school supplies this fall. That's up 1.7% over last year, incidentally, an indication that even in tough economic times, there's no escaping the lure of the 64-box of Crayons. And as parents and students are shopping for their back-to-school supplies, educators are preparing a whole other set of tools for the classroom.

We asked educators what is the one new tech tool they are most looking forward to taking into the classroom with them this fall - hardware or software, a new tool, or just one that's new to their class. The responses were pretty diverse, but here are the most popular answers: 1. The iPad and Twitter tied for the number of votes in our back-to-school survey. 2. It's not surprising, perhaps, since requests to complete our survey were passed around via Twitter, that many educators who responded said they were looking forward to incorporating Twitter into their work routines this fall. 3. 4. 5. Cartoon: Conspicuous Me. I can directly thank two people for today's cartoon. One is Deb Ng, who tweeted this a few days ago: If I were to propose a day where no one tweeted links to their own stuff, would you laugh at me, or think "hmmm. That's a good idea? " And the other is my wife and Social Signal partner, Alexandra Samuel, whose take on those tweets was: I'm in an exotic location, contributing brilliant, world-changing insights to a conversation among important, influential people.

No question, there's a lot of "Look at me, look at me! " on Twitter. But take a closer look at Tweeting Too Hard. And while I see a lot of tweets that read like cries for help from people who couldn't get their parents' attention when they were kids, I also see plenty that alert me to the fact that the writer actually has created or shared something brilliant. Sometimes self-aggrandizing is in the eye of the beholder. That said, I think Deb's prescription is worth considering. More Noise to Signal.

55 Interesting Social Media Infographics. PBL DO-IT-YOURSELF : Guidance, Tools and Tips for Your Projects | Buck Institute for Education. Connecting Online Live Online Conference for 2011 (CO11) The need for connection & engagement in education. Anyone who wants to make better presentations should be interested in how people learn. If you are interested in how people learn, you are obviously interested in education. And if you are interested in education, you surely have strong opinions about schools and other institutions of formal instruction and learning. As Sir Ken Robinson said in his first TED talk a few years ago, education is one of those things like religion and money that people have very strong opinions about. Few people think that the formal education systems around the world are perfect.

In fact, virtually everyone realizes that changes — even massive paradigm shifts — are needed. As scientists and other specialists learn more about how our brains work, for example, many of the traditional instructional methods used for the past 100 years (or more) seem to be out of kilter with how human beings really pay attention, engage, and actually learn something.

Tanto en el congreso de Menores en las TIC, como en mi taller de Interqué como en general en los artículos de educación de Blogoff vengo hablando de la necesidad de limar la brecha digital entre padres e hijos, combatiendo la idea de que un ordenador y más concretamente internet, son un juguete del que saben mucho los chavales y los padres no tienen ni idea. La idea de diversificar la actividad de los chavales delante del ordenador, en general, cala bien en las familias así que hoy os traigo 10 ideas que según la edad, los intereses y la relación que tengas con tu hijo pueden cuadrar más o menos.

Revista Tendencias Pedagógicas: Artículos de la Revista seleccionada. Aprender a pensar, contra viento y marea. La nueva metodología vertebrada por las competencias básicas impulsa la interdisciplinariedad como fundamento la resolución de problemas. Los estudios de la inteligencia humana así lo demuestran: sea el problema del tipo que sea, ponemos a funcionar todas nuestras capacidades, y depende de nuestra habilidad para coordinarlas e imaginar nuevas combinaciones el resolverlo mejor o peor.

Hace ya mucho tiempo que se definió la inteligencia, más que como una habilidad concreta, como la habilidad para resolver situaciones de conflicto, y la pedagogía de las competencias recoge esta definición con la idea de hacer a nuestros jóvenes más capaces de desenvolverse en cualquier medio. Hoy por hoy, y pese a que terminamos un primer curso en el que las competencias se han estrenado como eje vertebrador de los proyectos curriculares, puede decirse que la situación de las materias específicamente dedicadas a “aprender a pensar”, las propias del área de filosofía, es muy desilusionante. Es imposible pensar la escuela sin tecnologías: ¿Qué hacemos en las instituciones educativas al respecto? Hoy por la mañana encontré parte de una entrevista realizada al investigador Hugo Pardo Kuklinski, cuyo título por sí mismo "La enseñanza formal está en crisis permanente y perdiendo protagonismo", invita a la lectura. Dicha entrevista completa puede leerse aquí.

Hay allí varios párrafos jugosos pero especialmente uno para destacar, que tal vez encontramos conocido, pero que sin dudas nos recuerda lo que constatamos a diario: el largo camino por recorrer que tenemos en la mayoría de las instituciones educativas. “...la enseñanza formal está en crisis permanente y perdiendo protagonismo. La tecnología estará siempre presente. El pizarrón es una tecnología, las TIC son otras y luego vendrán los dispositivos móviles y otras que aún no sabemos. Es imposible pensar la escuela sin tecnologías”. Un nuevo estudio de la Universitat Oberta de Catalunya realizado con adolescentes de 12 a 18 años en esa ciudad, revela que este colectivo no explota adecuadamente todo el potencial que tienen las TIC.

Taken from Jenny Luca’s presentation Kids these days are connected and mobile. Wherever they are, they have access to information and can communicate with their friends online. Although I do believe that the media sensationalizes and demonizes social media, becoming informed about how to stay safe and behave responsibly online is crucial – for teachers and parents. Even for those of us on Facebook, it may come as a bit of a shock to realise how much we are unaware of in terms of privacy settings. Do you know how much of what you or your kids post online is visible to others? The Generation Yes Blog alerted me to the new A Parents’ Guide to Facebook by Connect Safely. I like the recommended settings for young people as an alert to what Facebook users should be thinking about. I’ve included screen grabs of some of the information on the Recommended Privacy Settings for Teens here - What do you think?

Follow him on Twitter at @shanesnow. The accessibility of video is a big reason why Internet talk shows are trending. Though talk shows hail from the muscle-car-and-milkshake days of the 1950s, our modern explosion of computer and Internet technology hasn’t rendered them old-fashioned.
