"Overall the diagram offers a nice framework for the concept not of 21st century learning, but 21st century pedagogy by focusing on several core components of modern learning: metacognition (reflection), critical thinking, technology, and problem and project-based learning."

This blog post contains a video I have created to illustrate how to layer apps to facilitate the learning intentions of a teacher, provide opportunities for formative assessment and enable students to publish work easily for peer review.
Some of the most important subject areas and activities we want students to learn are the very ones that are left out of many schools: the arts, computer progra
Computational thinking is a key area that we should encourage the development of in classrooms. Personally I use LEGO Mindstorms, Gamemaker and Scratch to start students off down this road. #eintegration #elearning
Digital citizenship is important to understand for today's students, staff, and teachers. Microsoft has just unveiled a free curriculum that gives great tips and ideas on teaching digital citizenship and creative content.
"There is an app for everything these days. From health apps to travel apps, iTunes market is teeming with all kinds of apps. It only takes one click in a search engine to find what you want but as we always say not every app can do what its developers preach , you need to have a critical eye to evaluate the apps that will work for you. As teachers and educators, we are in a constant search for apps to use with our students and this is why we need to make sure we have recourse to checklists such as this onewhenever we are to recommend apps. Educational Technology and Mobile Learning has even made it way easier for teachers to pick the apps they want from some pre-made lists of apps organized according to each subject area."
I read this with interest. Sugata Mitra's philosophy has real resonnance for me in his approach to student centred learning. I like it when in his TED talk he says "I don't know, and left.." This for me, created a real problem for students to solve and not one where they knew if they waited long enough the teacher would supply the answer. So reading Donald's article is a refreshing alternative perspective to Mitra's pedagogy. I try to create genuine open ended collaborative learning opportunities in the classrooms I work in, what are your thoughts?
A new Pew Research survey of more than 2,400 middle school and high school teachers released today shows that, while teachers believe technology has helped wi
Does the digital divide really exist? With free wifi at libraries in Auckland, with cheap internet cafes low income families can access the internet without having the most up to date mobile device. Is the digital divide more about devices rather than access to information?
Especially at secondary schools where the 'silo' mentality has to end but better integration at primary is needed too, especially in this world of literacy and numeracy projects they are taught almost as a separate unrelated entity to any other form of learning.
"In a flipped classroom, professors assign pre-class homework consisting of brief, recorded lectures and presentations, digital readings with collaborative annotation capabilities, and discussion board participation. This frees up classroom time to promote active learning through collaborative, project-based learning using simple display and sharing tools.... While technology facilitates flipped instruction, it takes both planning and experimentation to perfect the model. CT asked three experienced classroom flippers for their tips and best practices."
