10 Great Resources on 21st Century Education

10 Great Resources on 21st Century Education | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it

I believe the 21st century education is idiosyncratic in nature. It has acquired some distinctive features that sets it apart from the kind of traditional education that was prevalent  in the 20th century. Of course it does not take you long to guess the reason behind this change , digital revolution has and is still radically transforming the way learning and instruction is delivered.

Why is it called Windows 10 not Windows 9?

Why is it called Windows 10 not Windows 9? | 3D Virtual-Real Worlds: Ed Tech | Scoop.it
One of the most surprising aspects of yesterday's Microsoft event was the name of its new operating system: Windows 10. Not Windows 8.2 or Windows 9... but Windows 10. When asked about Windows 10's name, Windows chief Terry Myerson and Joe Belfiore avoided a direct answer, instead joking about how 'seven ate nine' and then lamely saying how the 'breadth of the product family' justifies the grandiose name. So, really, why did Microsoft call it Windows 10 instead of Windows 9?

Elaine J Roberts, Ph.D.'s curator insight, October 6, 2014 8:13 AM

There's a lot of great things about iPads, but clearly there are and have been some disadvantages. (Cough: USB port) Administrators and teachers asking the question "How can we get this right?" is powerfully important. Let's go digital, but let's do so in a way that empowers kids.
