The Teacher’s Quick Guide To Education Technology

The Teacher’s Quick Guide To Education Technology | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Not surprisingly, younger generations are heavily influenced by computers in a way that changes the way they retain information and the ways they develop opinions about culture.

Curation: Scoop those slides! Scoop.it | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
Curation starts with great content. It\'s the impulse you had as a teenager when you discovered a song you instantly loved and rushed to your friends to make them listen to it. Or the awesome article you just have to share.

 

So today, we’re happy to announce our integration with SlideShare. It will make it easier than ever to curate presentations...

OMG-This is Brilliant-Earth’s History in 2 Minutes

OMG-This is Brilliant-Earth’s History in 2 Minutes | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

Let’s start with the fact that this was done by a 19 year old. Then we can add that he is in a beginners video production class. Then lets add that he was able to find all of these photos with quick and easy internet searches for photos. Now add to the whole picture that after he uploaded the video, in three months he received over 1 million views. It is a different world from when older generations used linear editing systems.
