Toch weer jammer dat Microsoft Office's onderdeel OneNote niet genoemd wordt. Daar de office pakketten op vrijwel alle pc's van jongeren staan vormt dit een zeer goed (gratis) alternatief voor Evernote.

Interestingly, one of the most exciting approaches I’ve come across has a humble origin: the process associated with design. “Design Thinking” is a process, a framework, a series of steps that designers go through in order to solve problems, to improve existing ideas, or to realize previously unseen potential.

How can a social media guru help educate students, faculty & families. Social Communities

How can a social media guru help educate students, faculty & families. Social Communities | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it
In today’s day and age, we often look towards the younger generations for advice on how to use technology. Having trouble with your new smart phone? Ask any teenager on the block, they can give you a demo.

 

Here are four things that schools can do to educate students, families and faculty on proper social media usage, and serve as a go-to resource for their communities:

 

1.    Set a Social Media Policy for the School

2.    Designate a Social Media “Guru”

3.    Hold Social Media Workshops for the Students and Parents

 

4.    Offer “Social Media Tutoring”

Rebecca Ferlazzo's curator insight, May 12, 2013 9:27 PM

An important point to remember when we are considering using technology in the classroom. The integration of technology can be a help in the classroom while simply using technology can become a hinderance. So where do we make that distinction? 

James Buchanan's curator insight, June 5, 2013 11:47 PM

This article is about digital technology and how it is used and integrated. Are we truly USING technology when it is not integrated? When we ask for assessment that is presented with powerpoint, for example, we could just as easily ask them to write it in a book or make a poster. Digital technology should be used to facilitate collaboration and build high level thinking skills, that is how learning occurs.

 

Rebecca Wilkins's curator insight, July 17, 9:18 PM

Technology use is the first step.  Technology integration is the opportunity to combine technology with pedagogy.  Technology infusion is the process of using technology as a tool for learning, thinking, and problem solving.

Yes, You Can Teach and Assess Creativity!

Yes, You Can Teach and Assess Creativity! | 21st Century Literacy and Learning | Scoop.it

By Andrew Miller

 

"

A recent blog by Grant Wiggins affirmed what I have long believed about creativity: it is a 21st-century skill we can teach and assess. Creativity fosters deeper learning, builds confidence and creates a student ready for college and career.

 

"However, many teachers don't know how to implement the teaching and assessment of creativity in their classrooms. While we may have the tools to teach and assess content, creativity is another matter, especially if we want to be intentional about teaching it as a 21st-century skill. In a PBL project, some teachers focus on just one skill, while others focus on many. Here are some strategies educators can use tomorrow to get started teaching and assessing creativity -- just one more highly necessary skill in that 21st-century toolkit."
