Assessing the Potential of the Nation's Largest 1:1 iPad Program

Assessing the Potential of the Nation's Largest 1:1 iPad Program | agribusiness management for a sustainable world | Scoop.it

President Obama has announced a plan to bring high speed internet to most US schools within 5 years. In contrast, an LAUSD initiative that’s designed to cram course content onto iPads as opposed to prioritizing the importance of connection and collaboration will be missing the forest for the trees.

This is an interesting and quite critical article about a large scale program in the US. Very critical of the role of publishers in perpetuating an out dated approach to pedagogy.

Framework for 21st Century Learning - The Partnership for 21st Century Skills | agribusiness management for a sustainable world | Scoop.it

The Framework presents a holistic view of 21st century teaching and learning that combines a discrete focus on 21st century student outcomes (a blending of specific skills, content knowledge, expertise and literacies) with innovative support systems to help students master the multi-dimensional abilities required of them in the 21st century.

This is an excellent summary of 21st Century learning!

Selin Gelinci's curator insight, October 31, 2013 11:40 AM

This is a useful resource as  it explores further into the framework for the 21st century learning. It combines a discrete focus on the outcomes, specific skillsa and content knowledge that should be gained through the learning program. The diagram helps understanding further into the support system and how it all collaborates. This is benefical to me as a future teacher as it gives me a clear understanding of how i can manage my time effectively and make sure i am always covering aspects that are relevant to the 21st century learning.

Good videos about math concepts. I don't know if I could use most of them in first grade, but many of them can be used for education!

Computer Safety for Kids & Teens

Computer Safety for Kids & Teens | agribusiness management for a sustainable world | Scoop.it

By Emma Kavanagh

 

The Internet provides us with an abundant amount of educational information, entertainment, and can connect us with people throughout the entire world. As wonderful as the Internet can be, it can also be a dangerous place for children and teens. When using the Internet, one must be careful about sharing any form of personal information because unfortunately the Internet can be a platform for cyber criminals to target kids, teens, and young adults. The most common types of criminals found on the web include (online predators), identity thieves, cyberbullies, and hackers. In order to protect your children and loved to the fullest extent one must take all the necessary precautions when using a computer.
