How Teachers Use Technology: The Latest Research Back in 2011, I wrote a post about the "New Digital Divide." Based on Pew Research data from 2011, it was apparent that, while many previously marginalized populations now had more access to the Internet, these populations were accessing the Internet mostly through mobile devices, which are limiting, especially when trying to build and create online or access job applications or opportunities. Just this past week, Pew released a new study called How Teachers Are Using Technology at Home and in Their Classrooms. Who's Connected and Who Isn't As a member of a large online community of educators through Twitter and other social media outlets, I know how much of an impact the Internet has had on educators and their classrooms across the world. One important finding that more of us in education need to pay attention to is the fact that "75% of AP and NWP teachers say the Internet and other digital tools have added new demands to their lives." Same Old Digital Divide
Mitä iPadeilla voi tehdä... Uskonnonopettajakollega kyseli FB:ssa, mitä muuta uusilla iPadeilla voisi tehdä kuin tiedonhakua. Selasin omia tekstejäni tässä blogissa, ja huomasin, että olen liian vähn kertonut siitä, mitä olemme oppitunneilla tehneet. Yksi tekstini käsittelee pädiä opettajan henkilökohtaisena työvälineenä. Tässä siis jotain yhteenvetoa, tosin lista sisältää asioita, joita voi tehdä muutenkin kuin iPadilla. Ei haitanne? - Tiedonhaku Internetistä. - Muistiinpanot. - Oppimateriaalit. - Käsite- ja miellekartat. - Esitykset ja muut tehtävät. - Kuvaaminen ja videointi. - Käsitteiden järjestäminen esim. muistilappuohjelmalla. - Kurssipäiväkirjan pitäminen - Erilaiset kyselyt ja palautteen kerääminen sähköisillä palautejärjestelmillä. - Piirtäminen. - Yhdessä kirjoittaminen esim. - Aikajanat, esim. - Sovellukset, jotka liittyvät uskontoon, historiaan ja filosofiaan esim. * British Library Historical Collection * British Library Treasures * Paris 3D Saga (hieno osuus Notre Damesta) * Churches of the World
Google Launches Free Tool To Let You Run Your Own Online Courses Sensing the excitement from online education tools like edX , Google has just unveiled a (very beta) version of its own course building software. If you’ve ever wanted to run your own online courses, this might be worth your time. Google’s new Course Builder software comes on the heels of a massively popular online Google class ‘ Power Searching With Google ‘ hosted by Google’s Director of Research, Peter Norvig. Click here to get started with Google’s new Course Builder Why They Did It Norvig shared a bit more information about the impetus for creating the online course and the power searching course, saying it “was a strong success and also generated some technology that we thought would be useful to share with the world,” says Norvig. It’s interesting that Google is trying to do something completely new rather than help build edX or an already established tool. Google+ Hangouts Coming Soon Join Peter Norvig and special guests for two Hangouts on Air. The Details From Google
27 Tips For Becoming A Digital Teacher The term ’21st century teacher’ has been met with a bit of backlash over the past year or so. I’ve seen it pop up all over the place (including Edudemic of course) as a term to describe a ‘modern’ or ‘connected’ or ‘digital’ teacher. Basically, we all seem to trying to find the best term for a teacher who uses technology to enhance learning. Since that is quickly becoming the vast majority of teachers in many countries, there almost seems to be no reason to have a different name for something like this. So I’ll just stick with ‘digital teacher’ and move on. See Also: A Day In The Life Of A Connected Educator The terminology is not important. All of these goals are important and, more importantly, they’re detailed in Edudemic posts every day. So if you’re looking for tips, activities, or simply want to quickly know what it takes to become a modern / connected / 21st century / digital teacher, then use this visual as a jumping-off point to get you on your way.
Oppimisen tulevaisuus: MOOC, Flipped Classroom ja muita ilmiöitä Opetusala on myllerryksen keskellä. Suurin yksittäinen tekijä muutoksen taustalla on internet ja erityisesti sen vuorovaikutteinen web 2.0 –vaihe. Teknologia on kuitenkin vain kolikon toinen puoli ja samaan aikaan on kyseenalaistettu totuttuja toimintamalleja ja laajemmin koko opetuskulttuuria. Miten muodostaa kokonaisvisio tästä sekametelisopasta? Koulutusteknologian alan keskustelu käy vilkkaana ja se vilisee termejä kuten MOOC, Flipped Classroom, PLE, PLN, konnektivismi, sosiaalinen oppiminen, mobiili oppiminen, BYOD, pilvityö, uuden vuosituhannen taidot jne. Aloitan tässä artikkelisarjan, jossa hahmottelen oman visioni ja yritän saada palapelin palaset loksahtamaan paikoilleen.
