Great cybersafety site from the FBI for Teachers & Students With school back in session, one topic that’s on many class curriculums around the nation is cyber safety. After all, it’s a hyper-connected world—with texting, social networking, e-mail, online gaming, chat, music downloading, web surfing, and other forms of wired and wireless communication now a regular part of children’s lives. The FBI has a new program that can help. Today, as part of its longstanding crime prevention and public outreach efforts, the FBI is announcing a free web-based initiative designed to help teachers educate students about cyber safety. It’s called the FBI-SOS (Safe Online Surfing) Internet Challenge—and it was developed with the assistance of the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children and with the input of teachers and schools. FBI-SOS is available through a newly revamped website at Click here to Access.

18 manieren om een tablet te gebruiken in het onderwijs How cool would it have been to be able to draw, write, and learn directly onto my own computer? As the years went on, people theorized that laptops would take over the classroom, but the price of these devices was too high for a 1 to 1 ratio. It never quite caught on in lower grade schools. 1. Art In a subject like art, people might think, “How could a tablet be useful? It is, but what about an app that helps with color matching and combination, or tools for interior design where the child can map out their project in concept before getting to work? When they are done, they can share in galleries with other students for critique and encouragement. 2. App developers have continually surprised the public with the complexity of tools they are able to create for tablets. Music theory is fun when you employ the use of Piano Pro or others that allow students to try out an instrument without having to purchase a piano. 3. 4. There’s an app for that. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. Textbooks are expensive.

RealtimeBoard Will schools go for iPads? Kerry ⋅ iPads ⋅ iPads ⋅ 5 comments Image by chibiayu “The desktop market has entered the dark ages, and it’s going to be in the dark ages for the next 10 years…” Steve Jobs Wired Magazine. 1996 Approximately 3 years ago there was one very useful piece of information I took away from an ICT strategy meeting I attended; don’t invest money in static computer suites – the future of technology is mobile. It’s often said that mobile devices and tablets are placed to bring about a fundamental change in the way we teach and learn with technology. At the outset, not everyone in school may readily embrace the concept of mobile learning – students, parents nor teachers. The school’s internet connection will have to be explored for robustness; this will include the overall broadband capacity, suitability of current network hardware and management and access via a solid wireless solution. The school IT support team will need to explore ways of managing multiple iPads. Further Reading: Fraser Speirs

iP@ds in my classroom - Update 1 #Edchat #EdTech #Education Here is the first of many updates on how the iPads are being used in my classroom. The students were finally able to get their hands on the iPads on Monday (November 28). The first day was spent mostly on the ins and outs of how the iPads were to be used. I showed some of the basic features of the iPad and let them take them for a spin. They were excited to see what they could do and spent time taking pictures and playing around with the free apps. I showed them how to log into Dropbox and Evernote and how to log off those apps as well. The next day, the kids were diving deep into their project (Creating a Transcendentalist Society) and started to encounter some problems using Dropbox. The next issue that came to light was the lack of email. I'll be keeping regular updates on my site on the apps I use, the policies put in place and anything else that comes up regarding the iPad pilot. Have a great day! - @TheNerdyTeacher

Working Towards Multiple Exposures of New Vocabulary | LessonWriter Blog Anyone over 25 can surely remember making vocabulary flash cards, writing words over and over to learn the spelling, and generating example sentences to try and cement the meaning of new words. Today’s students have an endless supply of mobile vocabulary flash card apps to choose from, so they don’t have to carry around a lame pile of colored index cards. Regardless of the medium the method of repetition to learn new words is not likely to fade anytime soon, nor should it according to mounds of research In a recent article in Education Leadership, Lawrence at al. explained that, “Probably the most consistent finding related to good vocabulary instruction is that students need multiple exposures to a word to learn it well.” Here are some ways to support multiple exposures of new vocabulary: Make a lesson on www.lessonwriter.com and get a lesson with up to seven different exposures to new vocabulary.

How to use mobile devices in the classroom | Teacher Network Blog | Guardian Professional In an interview earlier this year Education Secretary Michael Gove hinted that he would like to see mobile phones banned in schools. Claiming they lead to "disruption" and can be used for bullying, Mr Gove bracketed mobile phones and iPods in the same category as weapons such as knives. Many objected to this broadside with an online petition. As a former Director of E-Learning, teacher for seven years, and current educational researcher, I have witnessed transformational learning experiences where mobile devices such as iPods and mobile phones have been key. Modern mobile phones in particular are more like pocket computers and can connect young people to a world of information and learning. Part of the problem stems from the fact that all of us own a mobile phone and all of us went to school. That's not to say that all teachers want to see mobile devices used in the classroom, of course. You can view the lesson plan for yourself here and the presentation here.
