No other entities or organizations in the country are better suited or better equipped to deal with this insidious problem than our revered institutions of higher education. With the national unemployment rate lingering well above 7 percent for the last four and one-half years, many are wondering if high unemployment is now the "new norm" in the United States. And if this is the case, should we expect more from our institutions of higher education? ===> Should we be asking them to do a better job of preparing graduates with specialized training and workforce-ready skills? <===

I realize that this post comes from the pages of,I'm tired of writing about this and you are probably tired of it too, but I have to talk about copyright, creative commons, and plagiarism again. Today, I discovered yet another blog that is copying and pasting posts from my blogs and those of many other edubloggers without permission. Unfortunately, the person behind the blog that is carrying out the practice of copying and pasting the posts did not lift the post I wrote last month about why you can't just copy and paste posts from another person's blog without their permission.

The iPad as a Tool for Creation to Strengthen Learning - Mind/Shift

The iPad as a Tool for Creation to Strengthen Learning - Mind/Shift | Better teaching, more learning | Scoop.it
"In this four-part series, we are using the Someday/Monday concept to explore four dimensions of using tablets, such as iPads, in educational settings. We will do this by examining how teachers can take students on a journey from the consumption of media to curation, creation, and connection. In the first part of this series, we used the Someday/Monday template to explore Consumption http://bit.ly/1bbz1tm . During the second, we examined Curation http://bit.ly/1bbz8Ff ; and the evolving role of the teacher as a curator of learning objects. This week, we will address Creation, examining what is possible when we empower students and teachers as innovators with iPads and other mobile devices."

"In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices. The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same."
