Per riuscire a valutare i processi e non il prodotto finalePer attivare consapevolezza riflessivaPer condividere con gli altri il nostro lavoro” Una scuola che cambia, come l’immagine dinamica di un treno che sfreccia in un non-luogo del nostro percorso.

E’ questo il significato profondo dell’azione Classi 2.0 nella Regione Umbria, progetto al quale partecipano un totale di quattordici classi di Scuola Primaria, Secondaria di Primo e Secondo Grado. Non è più, quindi, la classe che si sposta nel laboratorio, spazio indipendente e “speciale” ma lo stesso laboratorio si trasforma in metodo e strategia.

Correva l’anno 1960 quando, attraverso il mezzo televisivo, il Maestro Alberto Manzi, “il maestro degli ultimi”, insegnò agli italiani a leggere e a scrivere. Ma come sono le aule di oggi tecnologicamente avanzate? Non è più, quindi, la classe che si sposta nel laboratorio, spazio indipendente e “speciale” ma lo stesso laboratorio si trasforma in metodo e strategia. Può accadere, infatti, che un insegnante conosca perfettamente la strumentazione della lavagna interattiva, ma si trovi in difficoltà nel momento in cui debba inserire tale artefatto nella sua programmazione didattica. È spesso il software, legato a una particolare lavagna, a condizionare il docente e la sua lezione, che risulta così subordinata agli strumenti del mezzo tecnologico. Ma perché documentare in Rete?

Cardboard Box Tools The child in the photo above just received the most amazing toy! It might have been a giant stuffed giraffe, or a truck, or a new game. However, the cardboard box is even more exciting. We can learn a lot from children's infatuation with cardboard boxes. Beyond cardboard boxes, think about the timeless toys that exist today -- Legos, Lincoln Logs, crayons -- and what they have in common: each provides open-ended possibilities for creation. Finding the Right "Box" I once spent six weeks working on a Sketchup project with my seventh graders. I don't remember the learning objective, or what the students gained from the project, and after spending hours teaching myself the nuances of the program, I never touched it again. As teachers, we have a limited amount of time to address student needs, to ensure that they gain critical skills, and to achieve specific curriculum objectives.

After playing around with Android L on my Nexus 5, I’ve discovered that the rabbit hole is much deeper than this! There’s plenty of very small, subtle changes in Android L Developer Preview that might not be big on their own, but they are still very welcome and in the long run could make a pretty big difference when it comes to improving our mobile experience.
