“We shouldn’t even be talking about technology. We should be saying, ‘What’s the best educational experience for the student?’” – Sal Khan, USA

To celebrate five years of Daily Edventures, we’re sharing some of our favorite posts. This Daily Edventure was originally published on February 13, 2013.

Salman “Sal” Khan has unquestionably made a lasting impact in the world of education – his name has come up countless times here at Daily Edventures, as teachers and others point to his video lessons as an example of transformational change in education. Khan, a former hedge fund analyst, created Khan Academy after using video tutorials to help his niece with algebra.… Visit the author's original post

When Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert Emie Baylon and I spoke recently at BETT Asia, she enthusiastically shared how technology has converted students who were once “bored” into engaged, life-long learners.

“With OfficeMix and with Sway, I was able to make my class into an engaging one,” says Baylon.

And while technology is one part of Baylon’s teaching toolkit, it’s not the only reason her classroom is successful.… Visit the author's original post

New author blog post! David Arenstam tells us about his love for literature!

It is a great honor to welcome David Arenstam on my blog!
We actually met last April in Saco when my students, my colleague, Mr Tabary and I were visiting the school.
When I read his short stories, I immediately asked him to join my lietrature project!
THANK YOu so much Dave for accepting!


Writer, writer, who wants to be a writer?

The question was so simple, and for me, so complicated. For most of my adult life, I owned and operated a small software and data-processing firm that specialized in providing technology solutions for small banks and credit union.… Visit the author's original post

“One of the best things about the Flipped Class model is that it came from teachers and not from some sort of top-down professional development strategy. Teachers need to be brought to the table in all education reform. ” – Jonathan Bergmann Pioneer of the Flipped Class Movement, Illinois

One of the best things about the Flipped Class model is that it came from teachers and not from some sort of top-down professional development strategy. Teachers need to be brought to the table in all education reform. Too much education reform has been done to teachers instead of by teachers. We need more educational reform to come from the teachers in the trenches.” To learn more about how to flip your classroom, check out Bergmann’s blog, or connect with him through his Educator Profile.Visit the author's original post

9ème Forum des Enseignants innovants: presentation of my OIB projects to the French Minsiter of Education

As some of you know, I have had to undergo emergency surgery. I am missing my dear students more than I can tell! And I still must lie down as much as possible.

That is why it has taken so long to write this post!

To My dear 10th grade students,

Your literature projects were selected by François Jarraud (Café Padagogique) to be presented to the French Minister of Education.

Your work and some of the content you created was really appreciated!… Visit the author's original post

Deek Rhew: guest writer and future guest speaker!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Thank you so much for inviting me onto your blog, Marie!

Today, we are talking about the wild and crazy ride of getting from "It was a dark and stormy night..." to "Yaaaay! You're officially published." There was an article I read by Dave Barry who talked about a flight he took to California. Everyone boarded and while they were waiting to take off, he randomly started asking people how much they paid for their ticket. The answer was not surprising: No one on that flight paid the same fare.… Visit the author's original post

Kai Strand: some thoughts about the first Skype interview (by some of my students)

Today, some students wrote a post in honor of Kai Strand who did the first Skype interview with them.
Thanbk you so much to them and to Kai!

Last Thursday, the 10th grade OIB class got to know the American writer Kai Strand whom they met during a Skype interview. It was a neat opportunity because most of us had never done a Skype interview before with a writer. Kai Strand was very nice to us and answered all our questions in great detail.… Visit the author's original post

STEM Learning Brought to Life

Dallas_Brooks_011-779x520

The idea of flipped learning has been around for almost 10 years, however the skills and technology challenges were always too great to make it a practical proposition for most schools. But this is no longer the case! Today, teachers all around the world are using tools like Office Mix to deliver flipped learning as part of a STEM approach.

Flipped + STEM = Too Hard

In theory, the flipped approach is a great way to facilitate STEM learning. If a student can absorb the vital facts of a topic via digital content outside the classroom, then teaching time becomes much more powerful.… Visit the author's original post

Immersive Engagement in Minecraft: Education Edition

Guest post by Simon Baddeley: Microsoft Innovative Educator Expert.

For fifteen years, I have taught English in some of the most economically deprived schools and worked with some of the most disaffected learners that main stream education has to offer. Learners that face significant social, emotional, behavioural and developmental barriers to learning, with low self-esteem and even lower aspirations for their future. My absolute driving educational principle is that education is the key to unlock a world of opportunities beyond the cycle of social and economic deprivation that some of my learners are currently trapped within.… Visit the author's original post

10 razones para elegir Sway como herramienta de creación de contenido en el aula

La innovación en el ámbito educativo no se puede limitar a introducir las TIC para que el alumnado utilice alguna presentación digital creada por un profesor. Si queremos ir un paso más allá, debemos dejar de favorecer el aprendizaje pasivo. El alumno tiene que dejar de ser copiloto, para ser el conductor y coger las riendas de su aprendizaje.

Tradicionalmente, cuando un alumno no sabía algo, preguntaba a sus padres y/o maestros. Sin embargo, actualmente les resulta mucho más rápido y fácil echar mano de su teléfono móvil y buscar en internet.… Visit the author's original post

Flipping the Classroom with Office Mix – Part 2

In Part 1 of Flipping the Classroom with Office Mix, we explained how Office Mix allows teachers of all abilities deliver interactive learning artefacts that students can watch away from the classroom, so that the contact time is spent supporting students in the application of knowledge or creation process. Flipping the classroom or flipped learning, using Office Mix, is a process that we can all do because it is so easy and very familiar. Office Mix is a PowerPoint add-in, and you can convert your existing PowerPoint decks by adding multimedia and interactive apps.… Visit the author's original post
