Culture Shift: Teaching in a Learner-Centered Environment Powered by Digital Learning

The Alliance for Excellent Education (the Alliance), founder and producer of Digital Learning Day, is pleased to share the first in its series of digital learning papers entitled, Culture Shift: Teaching in a Learner-Centered Environment Powered by Digital Learning.
 
Preparing all students to succeed in today’s increasingly global economy and complex world requires a shift from a teacher-centric culture to learner-centered instruction. This report examines the characteristics of learner-centered instruction and the support that educators and schools will require to make such an approach work. It argues that a learner-centered approach will not succeed without a cultural shift throughout the education system that includes maximizing the potential of digital learning to meet students’ needs.

Good Classroom Tech Is Like a Sweet Old Softball Glove | Powerful Learning Practice

Good Classroom Tech Is Like a Sweet Old Softball Glove | Powerful Learning Practice | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

"Paul Barnwell’s article “Why Twitter and Facebook aren’t Good Instructional Tools” is a ruse…in a good sense. I think it’s a brilliant way to get a whole load of readers coming to the defense of social media tools in the classroom. But take a minute to read what he’s written and you’ll see it’s not an attack, it’s a call to action.
Done well, social media and technology integrated into the classroom feels like a familiar old softball glove. It becomes an extension of your hand and you almost forget that it’s there. Done badly, it’s a waste of time and the return on your investment is nil."

Design your Digital Classroom

Design your Digital Classroom | 21st Century Concepts-Technology in the Classroom | Scoop.it

I have just returned from the Illinois Computing Educators Conference where I had the opportunity to facilitate a full day session titled Design Your Digital Classroom. This session wasn't about the ratio of students to machines, nor was it a prescription for using one type of technology. The focus was on how to use technology as a tool for learning to support all learners in the 24/7 classroom. The participants were dedicated, innovative educators from across the state of Illinois, each bringing their own expertise and needs to the group. Each leaving excited about something that worked for them. Differentiated instruction and flexible learning paths work for everyone!

This is a great tool for creating short audio files which can be posted to Facebook, Twitter or shared by email. The tool runs in the browser but there are also apps for iPhone and Android. In the settings you can also change the speed and pitch of the wudio file. Very Useful.
