Programming & Simulation: Real Technical Skills for Today's Student - Edutopia

Programming & Simulation: Real Technical Skills for Today's Student - Edutopia | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
"Technology is here to stay. There are two main ways of interfacing with technology: passively as a user and actively as a developer. Today's technical problems are very complicated -- they cannot all be solved in theory on a whiteboard or exhaustively via computation. The use of simulation methods to obtain a "solution" to the problem at hand is not uncommon in industry. The purpose of this post is to provide broadly a "why" and "how to" for introducing simulation methodologies into high school math and programming courses. While the subject matter is technically deep, the concepts are well within the grasp of high school students -- and possibly younger students."

Teacher's Visual Library of 40+ iPad Apps ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
"I love it when I come across such educators curated lists of apps because I know since these apps are reviewed by fellow teachers then there is a high possibility that they will work for other teachers in different settings too. For instance, the wonderful work embedded below and which has been created by the folks in St.Plunkett Oliver Primary School http://www.stoliverplunkett.qld.edu.au/Pages/default.aspx ; is a great library of apps that every teacher should have the chance to explore. It contains a set of useful apps pertaining to different categories. Most, if not all of these apps, have been already reviewed here in Educational Technology and Mobile Learning before but it is much more practical to see them compiled and organized all in one page."

The 21st Century Principal: Adopting a Digital Disruptor Mindset to Transform Education

The 21st Century Principal: Adopting a Digital Disruptor Mindset to Transform Education | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
“When people adopt technology, they do old things in new ways. When people internalize technology, they find new things to do.” James McQuivey, Digital Disruption: Unleashing the Next Wave of InnovationWhen it comes to engaging in innovation with technology, the mindset we take toward technology is extremely important. We can either take a "technology adopter" mindset or we can take a "digital disruptor" mindset. As James McQuivey states in his book, Digital Disruption: Unleashing the Next Wave of Innovation, "Digital disruptors think about opportunity differently." To the technology adopter it's always about the technology. How can I use the technology to help me do the things I currently do better? In contrast, a person with a "digital disruptor" mindset sees the technology as the means to engage in entirely new and different possibilities. Which leads me to ask the question: Which mindset predominately drives technology policy in your school or district? Is it a "technology adopter" mindset or a "Digital Disruptor" mindset?
