Digital Badges for Professional Development (EDUCAUSE Review) | EDUCAUSE.edu | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it
Across the United States, higher education institutions and other organizations are experimenting with the use of digital badges to guide, motivate, document, and validate formal and informal learning. Badges are currently in use or in development at institutions such as MIT, Carnegie Mellon, the University of California–Davis, Purdue University, Seton Hall, and Yale University. Organizations outside of higher education interested in supporting learning are issuing badges too, including NASA, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration, the U.S. departments of Veterans Affairs and Education, the Young Adult Library Services Association, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting, the Smithsonian, EDUCAUSE, and the movie studio Disney-Pixar.

EdTech is No Longer Optional [INFOGRAPHIC] | LearnDash | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

The edtech arena is taking off, and that’s no surprise given the exciting advancements and accessibility of mobile devices.  Opinion among educators is predictably in favor of educational technology in the classroom, with a whopping 96% believing that it increases student engagement in learning. Heck, 89% of teachers believe that the use of ed-tech improves student outcomes in the classroom.  This is probably why we are seeing an increased use of learning management systems, ipads, and various apps in K-12 settings.

The Matthew Effect: What Is It and How Can You Avoid It In Your Classroom?

The Matthew Effect: What Is It and How Can You Avoid It In Your Classroom? | Aprendiendo a Distancia | Scoop.it

"The only reason not to reward the best and brightest for their achievements is to avoid punishing the rest for their shortcomings...

Programs for the gifted and acts like NCLB are classic catalysts of what social scientists call the Matthew Effect. Coined by sociologist Robert Merton, the Matthew Effect derives its name from a verse in the New Testament (Matthew 25:29)...and roughly translates to, “Those who are successful are most likely to be given the special opportunities that lead to further success, and those who aren’t successful are most likely to be deprived of them."

Beth Dichter's curator insight, July 1, 2013 11:57 PM

This post explores the Matthew Effect in detail, providing the background to be able to understand how this impacts our classrooms today. After the introduction the post is split into three sections:

* How The Labels You Place On Your Students Affects Their Performance

* How Early Experiences Determine A Student's Academic Career

* The Matthew Effect In The System
This final section raises the question of the value of holding students back. The author states "The ideal solution, she proposes, is not holding kids back but collaborating with parents on the creation of an individualized learning plan for each student who needs help reading — a plan that might involve specialized instruction, tutoring, or summer school."

This section also includes 20 ways you can avoid the Matthew Effect in your classroom. Two are listed below:

* Abandon the notion that it is the best and brightest who rise effortlessly to the top.

* For every “talented” student you provide with a superior experience, provide a “less talented” student with an opportunity as well.Each point has additional information that provides a more in-depth explanation.
As you reflect on your teaching are there students who may fall into the Matthew Effect? Do you have additional ideas that would be helpful to share?
