The Information Literacy Imperative in Higher Education

In other words, I’m talking about “Googling” versus researching and, all the while, knowing what, in fact, each piece of information is that you are looking at and whether or when and why and how you would want or need to use it—on the open web or in a library, or both! To do this well, “information literacy,” or, as it is now sometimes called, “information fluency,” is of the essence.

Are We Missing the Point? : 2¢ Worth | Considering ICT in Education | Scoop.it

... But are we (and I’m asking this question seriously) missing the point of a skill that has been so important to me, not to mention a pure personal joy?  You see, what has made coding so important is not necessarily its practicality, though I have been able to support the educational endeavors of many teachers with my tools.  It’s not even the bread it has put on my table, though I am enormously appreciative of that....

Art and technology make each other better—so why do we make ourselves choose? | Considering ICT in Education | Scoop.it

Stop, Start, Continue: Conceptual Understanding Meets Applied Problem Solving | Considering ICT in Education | Scoop.it

...Humanity cannot wait for students to graduate -- whether or not they are in IB schools -- and get started on doing things that contribute to a better world. We need to give students in every school, at every age, real agency and authentic opportunities to make a difference in this volatile, unpredictable, complex, and ambiguous world. With this in mind, we cannot be satisfied only with students learning about the world and developing deep conceptual understanding of multiple disciplines. We need young people building an ever-expanding portfolio of skills and experiences of things that they have done, created, and contributed to -- things that matter to them, to others, and to the world we share.

How might we help to make that happen? I propose three things that teachers need to stop doing, three things to start doing, and three things to continue doing. And I invite your ideas on expanding this list....

Why Apple Music Missed a Beat

Why Apple Music Missed a Beat | Considering ICT in Education | Scoop.it
The company didn’t think big enough.
KEpps's insight:

Stephen Downes writes: " Educators also could learn from Apple's failures. "Apple, like most companies, updated its technology without updating its thinking. These days, if you want to shift your market, you first have to shift yourmindset... They failed because they were stuck in an old mindset, confusing the distribution of content with the exchange of  social currencies. ... The problem is that Apple Music is still a distribution channel rather than an experiential platform, a collaborative community, and an artistic accelerator." Sound familiar? I'm at a MOOC conference right now, and so far it has all been about content (and a little about monetizing)."  http://www.downes.ca/post/64534
