Rationale: The opportunities for learning in our world today are immense and we need to take advantage of the opportunities that are presented to us. We not only have access to all of the information in our world today, but we have access to one another. This has a major impact in our learning today. What I have started to notice is that you can see some major benefits of being connected in the classroom for the learning environment of our students. Access to one another can accelerate and amplify powerful learning opportunities.
What's the secret to unlocking the creativity hidden inside your daily work, and giving every great idea a chance? Harvard professor Linda Hill, co-author of "Collective Genius," has studied some of the world's most creative companies to come up with a set of tools and tactics to keep great ideas flowing -- from everyone in the company, not just the designated "creatives."

A Pixar e a Google chegaram ao topo por deixarem emergir ideias e saberem liderar o processo criativo. Linda Hill explica como a liderança em inovação é em si mesmo inovadora.
"Turn the ancient expression of storytelling into an engaging task for your 21st century students by adding a media component. Called digital storytelling, this “is the practice of combining narrative with digital content, including images, sound, and video, to create a short movie, typically with a strong emotional component.” Not only does this help bring your classroom into the new age of educational technology, but it gets kids excited about writing and sharing their work."

In the 1990s, the internet was a hard-to-explain concept to people. Even though it’s commonplace now, the idea of electronic mail and being able to surf endless amounts of information without…
Elsa Caetano's insight:
Há muito, muito tempo (1990), num lugar distante, havia uma "auto-estrada da informação" que hoje mais parece um carreiro da minha aldeia, disquetes onde cabia 1/3 de uma imagem e um rap muito foleiro que versava: «Don't copy that floppy! »
21 April 2015 by Jane Hart: I have shared, in a number of places, a diagram of Modern Workplace Learning (MWL) , which I believes visualise all the main ways we learn at work. However, I have recently added a few P words that have helped to summarise the different elements as well as L&D’s role in it in order to help people at work. so I am sharing this diagram.
What are the Biggest Mistakes Teachers Make When Integrating Technology into the Classroom?
The word “mistake” is a harsh word. It implies flaws, pointing fingers, errors in judgement, something wrong and possibly even a dead end. I would rather think or connect the word “mistake” to first steps, stepping stones, experimentation and exploration. With that being said, those “first steps” or that exploration cannot become a routine cemented in stone how technology is being used in the classroom. Stepping stones are meant to lead to something else.
For the sake of the prompt given, here are my top 5 “Mistakes” (in no particular order) which I see, read and hear about as I travel the world to learn and work with schools, teachers and students:
- Technology being used to substitute an analog activity
- Technology use being seen as an add-on to allow students to use devices, the Internet, a program or an app as a reward, for entertainment, as a time filler for students who finish early
- Technology use as a separate subject area
- Technology as a $1000 pencil initiative
- Technology seen as the solution to motivate and engage students
A good public speaker takes their audience on a journey, leaving them feeling inspired and motivated. But structuring your speech to get your ideas across and keep your audience engaged all the way through is tricky. Try these eight storytelling techniques for a presentation that wows.
