Imagine Cup team goes international with Kinect-powered math game for students

A former Imagine Cup team has built an international business based on a Kinect-powered game it developed to help students sharpen their math skills.

Now known as Jumpido, the Bulgarian-based team credits the Imagine Cup for helping it develop into a business, and says the company’s success wouldn’t have been possible without the mentoring, connections and support provided by Microsoft.

“The thing that we really appreciate was the faith that Microsoft put in us when we hadn’t even started,” said Kiril Rusev, a team member who now serves as CEO of the company.… Visit the author's original post

Calling the ballgames from OneNote with professional announcers Joe Block & Scott Franzke

The World Series is in full swing and it yields a month filled with memorable home runs, strikeouts and game-winning hits. The soundtrack of these moments stays with you forever because of the announcers who call the games. But this is not a job for the shy or unorganized person.

Calling plays in a three-plus hour baseball game with hundreds of players throughout a 162-game season requires both knowledge and know-how. Joe Block, professional baseball announcer in Milwaukee, uses OneNote on all his devices to keep track of player stats, game stories and even to keep score, bringing the game to life for his listeners.… Visit the author's original post

4th Grade Mystery Skype with Tennessee

Our 4th graders are studying United States Geography this year.  Using what they learned this year, they played a game of “Mystery Skype” with a class from Tennessee today.

At first, neither class knew where the other was from.  Classes took turns asking Yes/No questions to each other, using internet tools like Google and Google Maps to research, and marking maps to eliminate states in order to determine their partner’s location.  Eventually our students figured out that our new friends were from Tennessee and they figured out that we were from Pennsylvania.… Visit the author's original post

1st Grade Visit to the PA State Police Academy

Our first grade students have really been enjoying their learning about animals.  Last week they took a virtual field trip to Busch Gardens to talk to a pair of veterinarians.  Right now they are in the process of creating an iBook using their class iPad to show what they learned.

This week,  Mrs. Wyckoff’s and Mrs. Rickert’s classes took a virtual trip using Skype to Hershey, Pennsylvania where the Pennsylvania State Police Academy is located.  They got a tour of mounted unit’s stables and got to meet some of the horses. … Visit the author's original post

Blog Post: How to Juggle Certification, College, and Work

PhotoMath: Should you ban Windows Phone in the Maths classroom?

Remember when calculators were banned in the classroom, because it made calculation too easy? Well, in the same spirit there’s going to be a maths teacher somewhere that will decide to ban their students from having a Windows Phone in their maths classroom. And all because of PhotoMath and how it makes it too easy to solve mathematical expressions.

It’s really simple to use….

Point your phone at a maths equation:

Patch voor trage Outlook met Office 365

Een van onze partners melde het probleem dat Outlook leek te “hangen” in combinatie met Microsoft Office 365. Het lijkt alsof Outlook wacht op verbinding met de Exchange Online server in Office 365.

Dit komt doordat met de Service Pack 1 update voor Office 365 Pro Plus Outlook standaard probeert via MAPI over HTTP verbinding te maken met de Exchange Online servers in plaats van RPC over HTTP.De patch die nu wordt uitgerold zet de voorkeur terug op RPC over HTTP.… Visit the author's original post

Learning to Re-Learn

Over the last few weeks, I have attended what I consider a significant amount of professional learning and as I reflect on each workshop, course and networking opportunity, I also evaluate if these workshops have had any immediate impact on my teaching and learning.

 

To my initial surprise, it has. I have learned to relearn. I have modified my approach to structuring my classes, my approach to engage all students and provide them with new ways to have a voice within all of my classrooms.… Visit the author's original post

Effective strategies in leading professional learning at your school

Keeping staff up-to-date with professional learning can be rather difficult, particularly in the area of technology were the skillset and knowledge of staff can vary immensely. There are a number of ways of sharing such information with staff that will not overwhelm them or take up too much of their free time.


 

Professional Learning Teams

Schools are beginning to embrace the concept of grouping staff based on their skillset to personalise professional learning. This enables expert teachers to share their knowledge of certain key areas such as curriculum, behaviour management and other upcoming developments that will impact teaching and learning with staff.… Visit the author's original post

“Lessicando e favoleggiando”

Questo è il titolo del progetto che vede i miei alunni protagonisti del loro percorso di apprendimento. Fin dai primi giorni di scuola abbiamo cominciato tutti insieme ad elaborare il nostro prototipo con il Service Design Thinking. In italiano abbiamo cominciato a sperimentare con la strategia della classe capovolta. Pertanto insieme abbiamo creato la classe che abbiamo chiamato "La nostra classe" e alcuni genitori si sono iscritti per partecipare come osservatori. 
Da parte mia ho cominciato a preparare alcuni video e diversi sondaggi, che ci hanno permesso di costruire il profilo di un lettore di 11 anni e tracciare una mappa mentale su quali siano le caratteristiche di una lettura efficace.

Technology in the Classroom: Building Teacher Capacity

Technology is getting in the way of learning!


Let's stop pretending that all of this technology in the classroom has been brilliant for education. Pretty hard hitting stuff for my first blog but let's tackle the big pink elephant in the room head on. Over the last 2 years I have been hosting professional learning in schools all over the country to support teachers in designing innovative curriculum and integrating technology in the classroom. Everywhere I go I have seen technology in the classroom totally ruin learning, squash student curiosity and kill staff confidence.… Visit the author's original post

Why learning long-life skills is not ‘important’ but ‘critical’?

We all dream of teaching our students skills that they can refer too or use later in life, but rarely are we realistically able to do this. Fortunately, as a teacher of technology, my chances of students developing skills over a longer period of time and then utilising them after they graduate from secondary school is higher…..or so one would think.

 

Today, I entered a telephone communication store at the closest Westfields to purchase a new sim card, only to find that I was back into a classroom setting where staff and managers spent a considerable amount of time trouble shooting technical problems.… Visit the author's original post

Showcasing Student’s Abilities

As teachers, we spend an equally amount of time discussing lesson content, the latest TV shows and much much more with our students. We often discuss in depth, the capabilities of our students and listen to what they are in fact completing outside of classtime. But, very rarely, are we able to share these experiences with fellow educators.


Please find below a Blog written by a year 8 student (who is 13 years old). He is incredibly intelligent and has a passion for technology that all teachers admire (and sometimes wish for in other students).… Visit the author's original post
