Sowing the seeds for a more creative society

Posted on Sep 18, 2014 by Melissa Jones Last Activity on Sep 18, 2014

How do we prepare students to participate in a more creative society? View this recorded session, featuring Mitch Resnick of the MIT Media Lab for a discussion of new technologies and activities designed to help children think more creatively. About the session We live in a world that is changing more rapidly than ever before. Much of what we learn today will be obsolete tomorrow. Success and happiness depend on the ability to think and act creatively. In short, we are living in the Creative Society. But there is a problem. Most activities in children's lives, whether it's lessons in the classroom or games in the living room, are not designed to help children develop as creative thinkers. In this presentation, we will discuss new technologies and activities designed specifically to help children learn to think creatively, reason systematically, and work collaboratively, so that they are prepared for life in the Creative Society. we will focus particularly on Scratch, a new programming language and on...

Engaging Students with Adobe Voice

Posted on Sep 16, 2014 by Eliot Attridge Last Activity on Sep 18, 2014

This is a lesson based around getting staff to learn how to use Adobe Voice. It also gets them to think about how it could help students with literacy issues become more engaged as well as giving a voice to special target groups. In NZ the target groups are Maori and Pasifika, but these could easily be altered to match the situation elsewhere in the world. The Voice_Help_Sheet is a sheet so that staff can reference it if they cannot get immediate help from me. I have designed it so that the sheet can be skimmed and, hopefully, the learner may pick up other ideas as they go through. The other sheet (Voice_Task_Sheet) is a sheet giving task and discussion instructions. Of the two exemplar Voice presentations, I created the first and the second is one that explains a scientific concept (so illustrating a different use). I have not included the exit slip as part of this download- this very much depends upon you personally and whether you think it was better to have an electronic form submitted.

Fab 5 - Multi Page App Design

Posted on Jul 16, 2014 by laurie doran Last Activity on Jul 16, 2014

The lesson plan is for a basic multi page app, since my knowledge base in code is limited (but rapidly expanding). Student will create a Fab 5b collection, five of their favorite artist, books, musicians, etc. The app would include info on each an image and a review resource. These would be stand alone collections. If I was a more savvy app designer I would like to create an app where students could curate content. Search the web for information, and images that have connection and bring it back to the app to edit, organize and store. A combination of Pinterest and old cash trading cards. I would like students to be able to eventually curate digital art exhibitions, connecting work by topic, media, etc. I see this lesson as a baby step to that goal.

App Planning Lesson Plan

Posted on Jun 29, 2014 by Wendy Sandstrom Last Activity on Jun 29, 2014

It has been WAY too long since I last created a lesson plan. This is probably too basic, but the general outline is there. I talk about online course resource, but at this point it is fictional. We use Blackboard, so if I get to teach this as an actual class someday, that is what I would probably be using.

Introduction to App Development Week 1

Posted on Jun 29, 2014 by Trevor Milevskiy Last Activity on Jun 29, 2014

This is a series of lesson to introduce the Year 10 students to the development of Apps. All the students have previously completed Code Academy and have developed web pages so they should be familiar with HTML code. As part of their Code work each student has created a Code Booklet into which they write definitions of code that they need to remember. This Code Booklet will be added to during the App development process and it forms part of the evaluation for the Unit. All materials are in the word document. I am looking forward to doing this with the Year 10 students this year and hopefully they will develop some great Apps which will be published.

A 60-minute lesson in which students use a pre-built Brackets template to create a simple information-based App. This lesson does not require any in-depth knowledge of coding; the students simply alter button names and add their information to paragraphs and unordered lists. The purpose of the lesson is so that students can learn about alternative ways of presenting information and in the process integrate some current ICT into their work.

Customizable Game Mechanics via Free WordPress Plugin

Posted on Jun 22, 2014 by Mike Skocko Last Activity on Jul 15, 2014

For the past four years, my students and I, aided by a growing number of adventurous educators from around the world, have created a tool—a WordPress plugin called Game On—that all of us use to gamify our curriculum. A collection of resources here on the Exchange have chronicled that journey. Over 3,000 comments (and countless emails) from nearly 150,000 pageviews have helped to shape and refine our plugin's features. I never wanted to become a developer. I'm a new media arts teacher who just wanted to use game mechanics to provide additional motivation and engagement for "flatliners"—those students who never really seemed to give it their all. Today, there are any number of tools teachers can use to gamify their classrooms. But four years ago? The cupboard was bare. So we invented our own system. Our plugin is free. WordPress is free. Hosting is not—unless your district provides it (as mine does). Expect to spend $20 (good) to $30 (great) per month for your own gamifie... Read More
