Nice infographic on blended learning.

David Bozetarnik's curator insight, April 30, 11:35 PM

Blended learning has much potential.  However, it is only PART of the solution to why ails education today.  It is not a replacement for funding.  Adequate funding, whether online of f2f, must go hand in hand.  You can't maximize the potential of education while cutting necessary $$$.

There's a lot of buzz out there about STEM - not only in the realm of teaching and learning, but in terms of job growth and potential, too.

 

According to the Smithsonian Science Education Center (the makers of the handy infographic), People who understand science and technology are smarter, more competitive, more productive, and more engaged global citizens.

Engaging Students Through Social Media: Real World Experience, Creativity...

Engaging Students Through Social Media: Real World Experience, Creativity... | 21st Century Teaching & Learning Resources | Scoop.it

Linda Buckmaster: Social media is not going away, and can be used productively, rather than prohibiting usage on campus. We are preparing students for the workplace and they need to know how to use social media as an important tool, rather than a distraction.  Lecturers should find ways to integrate social media into the classroom to build future professional skills.

 

Social media has become an essential part of most people’s everyday lives, from checking Facebook and Twitter to posting blogs, Pinterest listings, and uploading YouTube videos. However, and with smartphones making it easier than ever to spend time on social media networks, in what ways can these networks be leveraged to engage and build a foundation for future student learning? While the potential of distraction is there, the right social media teaching strategies can lead to creative learning, and a productive approach to making social media part of ongoing professional development.
