Para além do GPS…agora é hora de testar BLE | Autoria coletiva Estou participando da 19th International Conference on Human-Computer ( em Vancouver/Canadá. Assisti a apresentação de 2 trabalhos que utilizam uma tecnologia que não é super novidade, mas para mim é: BLE ou Bluetooth Low Energy.

7 smart ways to use technology in classrooms istock Elementary school teacher Kayla Delzer’s students tweet, post on Instagram and watch YouTube in class. Here’s why she thinks all kids should do the same. Many schools and teachers have an uneasy relationship with technology: they decry its power to distract young people but see it as a necessary evil to be tolerated, or at least strictly limited. Fargo, North Dakota, third-grade teacher Kayla Delzer believes that technology can truly revolutionize education — but only if educators make wise choices about what is used and how it’s used (TEDxFargo Talk: Reimagining Classroom Teachers as Learners and Students as Leaders). It’s way too late to try to keep tech out of classrooms — or children’s lives. Tech tip #1: Something boring on paper is still boring on a tablet or a laptop. “Using technology simply for the sake of using it is wasteful,” Delzer says. One way that Delzer’s students learn math is by playing an augmented-reality geometry board game called Cyberchase Shape Quest.

Pros & Cons of Using Technology in the Elementary Classroom Elementary Technology In a world driven by smartphones and other mobile devices, it's really no surprise that technology has found a home in the elementary classroom. In fact, according to a 2009 infographic published by the National Center for Education Statistics (NCES), 98% of elementary school teachers had computers in the classroom every day. Another 2012 infographic published by Everyday Family shows that 57% of kids under 12 have used a mobile device for educational purposes. However, as a new teacher, it can be hard to know whether or not this use of technology is warranted, or just a sign of the times. Pros Boosts Engagement and Motivation It goes without saying that technology is something that most, if not all, kids enjoy, so it's easy to see how engagement and motivation can be boosted through its use in the classroom. Readies Students for the Future Whether we like it or not, technology is something that is here for the long haul. Supports Individualized Learning Cons
