Flipboard Tips Mindset, we have a problem « Another dot in the blogosphere? A teacher laments that we have a problem when she finds out that a student cheated on a class assignment. I agree with that teacher, but not in the way you might expect. The complaint and the rest of the story is told at Teachers Put to the Test by Digital Cheats. (Many thanks to @hychan_edu for sharing this.) While the article says that the problem lies with students (the erosion of values that comes with ease of access to information), I think that is only half the story. The missing half is the problem that lies with teachers. If you set questions that a student can Google answers to, the problem is yours. If you set a complex question that a student can get a complex answer to thanks to an answer mill AND you have no idea that this happens, you have a problem. You cannot just blame the cases of cheating on the ease of access students have to resources and to each other. Not maybe. I think the deeper problem lies with the mindsets of teachers and students.

46 Tools To Make Infographics In The Classroom Infographics are interesting–a mash of (hopefully) easily-consumed visuals (so, symbols, shapes, and images) and added relevant character-based data (so, numbers, words, and brief sentences). The learning application for them is clear, with many academic standards–including the Common Core standards–requiring teachers to use a variety of media forms, charts, and other data for both information reading as well as general fluency. It’s curious they haven’t really “caught on” in schools considering how well they bridge both the old-form textbook habit of cramming tons of information into a small space, while also neatly overlapping with the dynamic and digital world. So if you want to try to make infographics–or better yet have students make them–where do you start? The 46 tools below, curated by Faisal Khan, are a good place to start.

Inspiratieboek Sociale Media op de basisschool “Een moeder nam contact met me op voor tips. Ze had gehoord wat we deden met iPods in groep 4 en was daar enthousiast over. Ze vertelde dat haar zoon autisme had. Hij was gefascineerd door computers e.d.

Tested School kan meer doen om ouders te betrekken Nieuwsbericht | 04-06-2012 Steeds meer basisscholen geven ouders informatie over hoe zij hun eigen kind kunnen ondersteunen bij de schoolontwikkeling. Toch geeft meer dan de helft van de ouders aan dat de school meer zou kunnen doen om hen bij de school en het leren van hun kind te betrekken. Dit blijkt uit onderzoek onder ouders en schoolleiders in het primair onderwijs, dat de onderzoeksbureaus Ecorys en Oberon in opdracht van het ministerie van OCW onlangs uitvoerden. Het onderzoek laat zien dat schooldirecteuren ondersteuning thuis door ouders als belangrijkste vorm van ouderbetrokkenheid zien. Rol van ouders steeds belangrijker Driekwart van de schooldirecteuren vindt dat ouders hun kind moeten ondersteunen bij school, bijvoorbeeld door belangstelling te tonen voor wat er op school gebeurt, samen te praten over wat kinderen leren, door voor te lezen of te helpen bij het huiswerk. Voorlezen steeds belangrijker

test Scholen en (social) mediawijsheid: hoe stoppen we de digitale kloof? Internet en sociale media hebben onze wereld op z'n kop gezet met alle positieve en negatieve effecten (Facebookfeestjes, Bangalijsten, dreigtweets, cyberpesten...). We lijken te worstelen met de vraag hoe we hier mee om moeten gaan. Dat geldt ook voor onderwijsinstellingen. Gedragsstimulering vs. gedragsregulering Scholen reageren vaak door maatregelen te nemen en door protocollen te maken die vaak vol zitten met regels, waarmee ze eerder dekking willen bieden in een juridisch schimmenspel, dan dat er zinvol gestuurd wordt op effectief gebruik van sociale media. Wordt het geen tijd voor scholen om samen met ouders en leerlingen de tactiek te gaan bepalen? Waar bij veel scholen protocollen in de kast verdwijnen, kun je er ook voor zorgen dat de afspraken echt doorleefd en overgedragen worden aan alle (nieuwe) leerlingen, ouders en leraren, met de boodschap: “We vertrouwen je!”. Moet de noodklok geluid worden? Helpt regelgeving in het onderwijs aandacht voor mediawijsheid? Maar hoe?

10 Tips to Help Master Prezi Last week, I spent two days teaching Prezi at the Langley Center for New Media. As the event came to a close, a few attendees asked if I could sum up more than 16 hours of teaching in a top 10 list. Well, here’s my first stab at 10 tips that should help you become a better Prezi presenter and publisher. 1. Work in 1024 × 768 Import assets (like screenshots) at the resolution you plan to present at, otherwise your imported assets will look awful. 2. While we’re talking about the correct presentation resolution, it’s important to remember that Prezi is designed to help you easily present at 1024 × 768. 3. Working efficiently in Prezi, like many software suites, completely hinges on using the keyboard shortcuts. 4. When I set out to create a presentation, I think in 10-minute frames. 5. While I’m constructing my presentation (constantly adding elements and trying to work through the story and element organization), I work across a widely separated landscape. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 100 more hints

How Steve Jobs Impacted Education The untimely death of Steve Jobs provides an opportunity to reflect on the passing of an American icon and take some lessons from his extraordinary life. Steve Jobs had a passion for education. And his passion for education extended far beyond his famous speech at Stanford University. Education was a high priority for Jobs, and I remember when the students at the rural high school where I taught entered their new Mac lab for the first time. That lab was a direct result of Jobs’ innovative spirit. Making Mistakes I think that the basic issue that underlies our inability to find workable and scalable solutions to an education system that no longer serves us well is simply fear. Motivation Matters We’ve become so focused on results that we don’t always reward motivation and good intentions. What Defines Failure? Changing Our Paradigm The company sold a mere 50,000 computers.
