SCALE-UP Classroom Technology: Supporting The Learning Environment

ViewSonic Education

Despite the dramatic impact technology has had on education, many classroom structures and teaching methods haven’t changed much over the years. Learning environments are becoming more flexible, teaching methods are changing to accommodate different learning styles, and student collaboration is playing an increasingly important role in the classroom.

How Technology Can Help Deepen Students’ Learning

EdNews Daily

In order to do that, we need to ensure that students regularly operate at the deepest levels of learning: analyzing, breaking things down, making connections, evaluating different situations, etc. Deep learning constitutes the three top levels of Bloom’s taxonomy: analysis, synthesis, and evaluation. At these levels, students have fully “owned” the knowledge or skills they have been learning and so can solve new and complex problems. Technology-Supported Transfer of Learning.

Technology’s Role in Putting Learning Science Research To Work

Digital Promise

Since the days of writing on wooden shingles with charcoal in one-room school houses, an increasing array of objects – pencils, paper, scissors, paste, books, and microscopes, to name a few – have been routinely used in classrooms to help students deepen understanding and record and communicate what they learned. Today’s technology allows teachers to generate and monitor personalized learning plans for their students. Supporting collaborative learning.

Where Does Personalized Learning End and Special Education Begin?

I’ve committed to personalizing learning, but how can I do that for every student in my inclusion classroom when the range of abilities among them is so vast? Personalized learning doesn’t seem that far off—but meeting the needs of every student in an inclusion class when some have IEPs and some do not can get hairy. I’d like to see special education take a front seat in conversations about personalized learning. Does personalized learning mean every student gets an IEP?

Beyond the Test: How Have We Learned This Decade?

This op-ed is part of a series of reflections on the past decade in education technology. The quiz seems deceptively easy: The past decade has seen literally hundreds of technologies and ideas emerge, many aimed at engaging or involving K-12 students and supporting student learning. So have students learned more? But is asking how much students have learned the right question? What about how they have done that learning?

Ambient learning

Learning with 'e's

The answer is to value staff by providing them with relevant learning opportunities as they work. In many large organisations today this is changing, with learning and development now conducted largely while employees are on the move, or sitting at their work stations. This approach to ambient learning (some might also refer to activity learning ) proves to be more authentic, and the learning can be applied directly to tasks in situ - real learning for real contexts.

Learning Technologies and Creativity in the Classroom

GoConqr

If newer technologies can foster creativity in students then educators must seriously think about how they can incorporate them into their classroom teaching strategies. The unfortunate truth is that, by and large, students view the classroom as a place where they are forced to learn via long-established teaching methods. Dropout rates increase, test and project scores dip, and – worst of all – learning becomes synonymous with boredom.

The persistence of distance (learning)

Learning with 'e's

In a formal sense, distance learning has been a familiar concept since at least 1837, when Sir Isaac Pitman began teaching his shorthand system using typed instruction cards mailed through the universal Penny Postal service to his students across England. They were surely an asynchronous form of instruction, a sort of same place - different time learning. By comparison, in its technology supported multiple formats, contemporary distance education is much more sophisticated.
