What Teens are Learning From ‘Serial’ and Other Podcasts It didn’t take long for Michael Godsey, an English teacher at Morro Bay High School in California, to realize that his decision to use a public radio podcast in the classroom was a wise one. It wasn’t any old podcast he was introducing to his classes. It was “Serial,” the murder-mystery phenomenon produced by reporter Sarah Koenig of “This American Life,” which already was transfixing a wide swath of the adult population. “Even if they weren’t into it, I told them it was the most popular podcast of all time, and that was interesting,” Godsey says. He needn’t have worried. The podcast seized his five classrooms of 10th- and 11th-graders. Godsey is one of a growing number of educators who are using podcasts like “Serial” to motivate their classrooms and address education requirements set by the Common Core state standards. Students in Michael Godsey’s class review cell phone logs from the Serial podcast. Learning through listening has surprising educational advantages as well.

МЕНЕДЖЕР ОБРАЗОВАНИЯ: портал для специалистов школ 6 Ways Social Media Can Change Your Classroom Remember when schools had policies outlawing cell phones in the classroom? Teachers used to tell students, “Keep it in your locker, in your backpack, in your car, or at home, just don’t bring it in here. Your phone is a distraction.” Yet here we are, a handful of years later handing out laptops and tablets to every student, holding Bring Your Own Device (BYOD) days, and encouraging students to engage in class work online in ways we never imagined tolerable, or even possible. Today, many forward-thinking teachers are embracing gadgets and social media as a way to connect with students, families, and other classrooms. Social media is broadly defined as online sites or tools where people create and share content in written and visual formats. We’ve put together a few ways that using social media can change your classroom for the better. 6 Ways Social Media Classroom Will Change Your Classroom 3 Ways to Get Started Using Social Media with Your Class In Short

40 Viewing Comprehension Strategies 40 Viewing Comprehension Strategies: Watching Videos Like You Read A Book by Terry Heick You can’t watch a video like you read a book; the modalities couldn’t be much more different. On the surface level a video uses light, color, sound, and moving images, with the potential for adding text and shape and color and light filters as overlays to communicate ideas, while the most basic text structures use alphanumeric symbols, paragraph and sentence structure, and an assortment of text features (e.g., white space, headings and subheadings, fonts, etc.) to convey their message. There is much, much more to it than this. Videos are meant to be consumed in short bursts, while literature, for example, is meant to be “sat with.” The Interaction Between Video & Text This suggests that video consumption would more readily transfer to video production, or even video as a means of assessment. Below are a few possibilities, many of which you’ll notice apply to non-digital media as well. Before Viewing 1.

Innovating Pedagogy 2015: the 10 technological trends set to transform education Innovating Pedagogy 2015, a new report from The Open University and SRI International, identifies 10 trends that are likely to transform education in coming years. These are the trends, listed in an approximate order of immediacy and timescale to widespread implementation. Crossover learningLearning in informing settings, such as museums and clubs, that links educational content with issues that matter in learners’ lives. Learning in schools and universities can be enriched by experiences from everyday life, and informal learning can be deepened by questions and knowledge from the classroom. Learning through argumentationMimicking the argumentation style of professional scientists and mathematicians to develop understanding of contrasting ideas, thus deepening learning, and to make technical reasoning public, for all to learn.

12 Principles Of Mobile Learning 12 Principles Of Mobile Learning by Terry Heick Ed note: This post has been updated and republished from a 2012 post Mobile Learning is about self-actuated personalization. As learning practices and technology tools change, mobile learning itself will continue to evolve. It is only within these communities that the native context of each learner can be fully understood. 1. A mobile learning environment is about access to content, peers, experts, portfolio artifacts, credible sources, and previous thinking on relevant topics. 2. As mobile learning is a blend of the digital and physical, diverse metrics (i.e., measures) of understanding and “performance of knowledge” will be available. 3. The cloud is the enabler of “smart” mobility. 4. Transparency is the natural byproduct of connectivity, mobility, and collaboration. 5. Play is one of the primary characteristics of authentic, progressive learning, both a cause and effect of an engaged mind. 6. 7. 8. With mobility comes diversity. 9. 10.

What Teachers That Use Technology Believe - What Teachers That Use Technology Believe by Terry Heick What do teachers that use technology believe (as it pertains to teaching with technology)? This will read a lot like a pro-education technology post because it (more or less) is. I tried to get in the head of both teachers skeptical of “edtech” and teachers that have embraced it full-on. I’ve speculated before why some teachers are against technology in learning. Of course, not all of these will be true for all teachers. What Teachers That Use Technology Believe
