Media and Children Media is everywhere. TV, Internet, computer and video games all vie for our children's attention. Information on this page can help parents understand the impact media has in our children's lives, while offering tips on managing time spent with various media. The AAP has recommendations for parents and pediatricians. Today's children are spending an average of seven hours a day on entertainment media, including televisions, computers, phones and other electronic devices. Studies have shown that excessive media use can lead to attention problems, school difficulties, sleep and eating disorders, and obesity. By limiting screen time and offering educational media and non-electronic formats such as books, newspapers and board games, and watching television with their children, parents can help guide their children's media experience. Television and other entertainment media should be avoided for infants and children under age 2. Additional Resources

Poof! Paper Handouts are Digital - Teacher Tech While at an event recently the speaker handed out a paper handout. After her presentation, some of the audience members were asking if the handout was available digitally.

Does the Device Matter | Teaching in the Primary Years The are many different devices being implemented into classrooms all around the world. With schools using PC’s, Laptops, Macbooks, iPads, Chromebooks, and Netbooks to move further towards 21st Century Contemporary Learning environments I am often asked the question “What devices should my school purchase?” I immediately stop the conversation before any further discussion and ask the question, “What is the purpose of the device?” Schools need to invest time in developing a vision on “the purpose” of any new device and what it is they would like their students to create and achieve that this new technology will enable. Once a clear vision and purpose is established schools can move forward and explore what different devices can achieve and weigh up the pro’s and con’s of each for their school environment. Things to consider when choosing a device: Taking new devices out of boxes and configuring them to your school infrastructure is like Christmas Day. The SAMR model, developed by Dr.

By Uri Wilensky In his recent State of the Union address, President Barack Obama said schools need to offer every student hands-on computer science classes to be better prepared for the workforce. President Obama is right: the next generation of learners will require a high level of fluency with modes of thinking in which computers act as interactive partners. The question is: how best to make sure they acquire that thinking? Are computing classes the only way to do this? More computer classes There is widespread agreement that computing should play a more prominent role throughout our education system. The STEM Education Act of 2015 was recently passed into law, expanding the definition of STEM (science, technology, engineering and math) to include computer science and encouraging more STEM education efforts. Seven of the nation’s largest school districts are adding more computer science classes. Shortage of students

The Definitive Guide to Educational Technology Resources Last updated: Jan. 11, 2017 I love teaching, and I'm enthusiastic about technology. When one of my colleagues (also a K-12 teacher) reached out and asked me to compile a list of educational technology tools, I said "that sounds like a fantastic idea." A quick research reveals that there isn't a lack of EdTech tools on the Internet. Therefore, I figured it would be great to curate a comprehensive list of the web's best EdTech resources that classroom teachers can really benefit. If you are also a teacher or a supporter of education technology, the best way to show your appreciation is to share this guide with others who may be interested in the topic.

Actividad con Códigos QR "Poetas y poesías" Los alumnos y alumnas de 5º de primaria han estado trabajando durante 15 días la recitación de un poema. En un primer momento tuvieron que buscar una poesía y elegir la que más llamara su atención por cualquier cuestión personal. Una vez elegida, además de memorizarla tenían que conocer al autor y algún dato importante sobre él. Siguiendo las pautas que se habían trabajado en el aula para recitar un poema tenían que presentarlo a la clase. Al ver que lo estaban haciendo genial y que les gustaba escucharse decidimos completar la actividad con Realidad Aumentada creando unos QR que dieran la oportunidad al resto del colegio de escucharnos. Empezaron por crear un dibujo personal sobre un retrato del poeta elegido. Mientras tanto, utilizando el iPad del profesor y unos iPods Touchs que nos había prestado Aulablog se grabaron unos a otros y subieron los archivos de audio a Una vez creado imprimieron el código QR y lo pegaron junto a su retrato del poeta.
