Looks more like a walk down an exhibit hall of vendors than skill/talent tied to teaching & learning.
Rod Murray's comment, February 13, 7:21 PM
If every teacher had this skill set, that would dramatically change teaching and learning. The "vendors" are, contrary to your suggestion, mostly free technologies that can and do change teaching and learning.
Richard Whiteside's curator insight, February 19, 5:10 AM

These and many other tools are available. But if you are a teacher, what do you think? Is it really necessary to have all these skills? There is so much content readily available online and if you can organise to prepare materials in teams, or have access to a PLN on or offline, then you can share the load. 

 

Some teachers and content creators have specific skills and their expertise can be used or accessed by anyone. Personally, I think it's good for teachers to be aware of the digital possibilities for their teaching context, but it is generally unrealistic for anyone to expect all teachers to become skilled in so many different areas. 

 

Is it not better to pick fewer areas more relevant to you and focus on them? Be a master of a few areas useful to you, not a jack of all trades feeling stressed that you are master of none.

Keiichi Matsuda: Augmented Hyper-Reality

Keiichi Matsuda: Augmented Hyper-Reality | digital divide information | Scoop.it

Watch the designer’s films that depict a future in which a virtual layer of data is a continual presence in our lives 

For our latest issue we met designer and filmmaker Keiichi Matsuda, who creates films that depict a future in which our everyday lives are densely stuffed with information via a digital overlay, in an effort to spark debates about how technology can and should shape our world.

“Now, everyone has a camera in their phone, and can produce and distribute their own content,” he says. “I was thinking about how that could be applied to architecture, to the creation of space. What if an ordinary person could not only customise their own house, but their own street?"

How To : Visually Record Ideas Using an iPad

How To : Visually Record Ideas Using an iPad | digital divide information | Scoop.it

How To : Visually Record Ideas Using an iPad

Visual recording is similar to audio recording: they both use the same concept that is : recording. One uses voice and the other uses visual cues like diagrams, charts, lines, arrows...etc. Think about visual recording as visual mind mapping.

This is Visual Recording and NOT (in this case) Visual Facilitation

Without Infrastructure, the Digital Classroom Is Just a Dream [#Infographic] | digital divide information | Scoop.it

Classroom technology relies on a strong foundation.  Without the vital infrastructure, such as servers, access points and bandwidth, classroom technology would lack the components necessary for successful implementation.

We are the filters not the digital technologies. It is important students learn to filter information.

Six Emerging Technologies in Education | Master's in Curriculum and Instruction | Saint Xavier University Online | digital divide information | Scoop.it

6 techno-social trends for K-12 education:

 

Cloud computing, mobile technology, gaming (I would say gammification strategies), open content, learning analytics and personal learning environments, according to the text.

 

I'd suggest adding User Centric Experience, content curation and ownership and social media dynamics.
