I have been traveling throughout Slovenia and Croatia for the past month training teachers in integrating Bring Your Own Technology (BYOT) effectively with their classes. I was very fortunate to have the opportunity to teach various classes of teens throughout the two countries to show teachers how BYOT works. For the days I was teaching the students, these schools lifted their policies and allowed the students to use their devices as a way of getting technology in the schools. The teachers wanted to see BYOT in action, especially with students who were never allowed to use their mobile devices or other technologies before for learning. BYOT was a great option because many of these students would not usually be able to learn with various technologies in schools if they didn’t bring them in.
Newton informs the class that they must take measurements and record data on this new planet. To repair their ship and return to Earth, they need to solve math and science problems at each station on the planet Entramedon.
It’s fun and a little silly, but their mission is serious. The third graders are reviewing math and science skills before the DC Comprehensive Assessment System test this month, the yearly high-stakes standardized exam for grades 2-10 in the District of Columbia. Creating a new fictional setting, complete with props and a storyline, engages the children’s imaginations and forces them to put their knowledge into a new context, Hall said.
“It has happened all too often. A troubled teenager gets his hand on a weapon, and lives are changed forever.”
For many inner-city teens, these words hit close to home — and they can be heard in the trailer for “Triggering Wounds: A Story of Guns and Violence in Harlem,” a documentary produced by an incredible group of high school students. The film, which shines a light on gun violence, is set to premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival this week.

The movie, “The Biggest Story Problem,” written and directed by Scott Laidlaw and Jennifer Lightwood, is determined to focus on ineffective math education in the U.S. and provide solutions to get the U.S. back on track. The movie features teachers from around the country, from Roots and Wings Community School in New Mexico to Florida Virtual School in Florida, the first virtual school in the U.S. These teachers are determined to find alternative ways to engage their students in math and turn their attention to countries that excel in math education, like Finland. A turning point in the film comes during a teacher development retreat, when the group of teachers commit to making math more engaging, deeper learning process through the use of interactive computer games in the classroom.

Rachel Goslins from the President’s Committee on the Arts says they’ve found “low income kids who engage in the arts are three times more likely to have high attendance records and four times more likely to be involved in a student club or student government.”
In the TEDx Denver Teachers talk above, Lichtman says he discovered that instead of focusing on a rigid set of so-called 21st century skills, what educators actually need to do is “teach into the unknown” because none of us know what the future looks like.
