See on Scoop.ittech | design | education

“Carol S. Dweck says that her graduate students here at Stanford University are hard-working, creative, and resilient in the face of failure. But she wouldn’t call them smart.

Over the last two decades, Dweck has become one of the country’s best-known research psychologists by documenting the follies associated with thinking and talking about intelligence as a fixed trait.”

10 Steps to a Successful School iPad Program – iPads in Education

See on Scoop.ittech | design | education

“iPads have certainly become a highly desired commodity in education. Apple is reporting that schools are purchasing iPads by a ratio of 2:1 over MacBooks. However, that rush to purchase the latest technologies often precedes the careful planning and preparation that’s crucial to their success as educational tools.

Stated simply, technology alone doesn’t have the capacity to improve education. It needs to be woven into a holistic approach to education that encompasses thorough planning and ongoing review of the skills and competencies required by the rapidly changing society that characterizes life in the 21st century.

Well-planned technology deployments have the potential to have a remarkably transformative impact on schools and students. Here’s a list of ten vital elements of a successful iPad implementation in schools.”

Teaching teens to live without Facebook

See on Scoop.ittech | design | education

“What happens when high school students head to rural Vermont to live and interact without mobile phones and with only limited internet for a few months?

 

The current generation of school-age students spend more time online than any other. But what happens when they are asked to live and interact without mobile phones and with limited internet for a few months?

 

At the Mountain School in rural Vermont, 45 students from across the US find out each term what life is like without the technological advantages offered by their life at home.

 

Normally, three-quarters of Mountain School students spend two or more hours online at home every day, with a quarter online for five hours or more, they told the BBC.

 

In a survey, students said checking Facebook and email, doing homework and chatting with friends were their favourite activities.

 

But a few months in rural Vermont has changed their perspective on how technology is used.

“I think it forced everybody to get to know everybody on more of a personal level, instead of just checking their Facebook pictures,” said Keifer, 17.

 

Thirty-three of 43 respondents said they would use the internet a little or a lot less upon their return home.

 

But they will face a challenge reintegrating into a world where friends and family might be as tech-happy as before.”
