Distractions & Expectations With Smartphone Living

If your phone is sitting silently on the table next to you at the cafe, are you paying less attention to the person you are with? A new study suggests that even when our phones aren't actively alerting us to something, we are less connected in our face-to-face interactions with them laying there. http://bit.ly/1qITDkX

Whether it's the always-on pressure and expectations we tie ourselves to through our phones or the unlimited potential for distractions within them, the mere presence of a mobile device - not use - could be changing the way you interact.

Video Games, Morality & National Security

I'm reading No Place To Hide now, and I love that Snowden "blames" #videogames for his desire to follow his moral compass and belief in the power of an individual protagonist to affect change!

What will you explore with the Field Day app?

I'm a big fan of using technology to get offline as fast as possible and out into the real world. Whether it's AR or simple tools to make life's tasks easier, I'm for it. These photos show how one teacher took our new app out to explore her new hometown and made some great discoveries. 

Our motivation to get kids out into the rainforests and onto the shores of Southeast Alaska was a driving force behind developing this mobile app for project based (and place based!) learning.

It's new in the App Store, and even better it's free. Give it a spin and see what you can discover: https://itunes.apple.com/us/app/field-day-project-based-learning/id818610895?ls=1&mt=8

Go to http://fielddayapp.com/ for more PBL ideas and a tour of this educational app's fun features.
The Field Day app is an innovative project based tool for teachers and students. I had fun designing a place-based unit that leads students on an inquiry exploration of how geography shapes settlement in their community. My example uses Field Day’s inquiry question prompts to explore my new home town in Red Wing MN. Placing an inquiry question on the title page provides a jumping off place for students to explore their community using further inquiry prompts. Students then utilize tools in the strategies section to organize their questions, research plans, findings, photos, and drawings onto notecards and photo boards. I loved the way the app is designed to encourage #learning  through inquiry, and the strategies tools help organize a student’s inquiry. I am hooked on using it. This app motivates both teachers and students to actively engage in inquiry based projects. It is an essential tool for teachers and students who strive for depth in a meaningful, digital learning environment.  -DC
