Kathleen McClaskey's curator insight, August 26, 2014 4:37 PM

Universal Design Learning is a framework for learning that includes all learners.. Being grounded in socio-cultural theory, UDL views learning environments and social interactions as being key elements in development and learning. In UDL learners are allowed to express their learning in a variety of ways.

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | digital divide information | Scoop.it

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers [http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2010/7/31/top-ten-social-media-competencies-for-teachers.html ]. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.

very interesting article to read.

Linda Alexander's curator insight, November 25, 2013 7:53 PM

Quite of few of the examples are famliar, but the point being that depending on the culture, the values, the worldview, etc. what it means to be educated, and how one goes about learning, can be vastly different.

Motivation, Not IQ, Matters Most for Learning New Math Skills | TIME.com

Motivation, Not IQ, Matters Most for Learning New Math Skills | TIME.com | digital divide information | Scoop.it

"You don’t have to be born with math skills; solving problems is a matter of studying and motivation.

That may not seem like such a surprise, but it’s become easy to say ‘I just can’t do math.’ While some element of math achievement may be linked to natural inborn intelligence, when it comes to developing skills during high school, motivation and math study habits are much more important than IQ, according to a new study.

“It’s not how smart we are; it’s how motivated we are and how effectively we study that determines growth in math achievement over time,” says Kou Murayama..."

The ease in which the teacher is able to share enthusiasm is key as well.

A study done in Germany argues that it's not the children who have the high IQ's that are growing most in their math skills but it is the ones who are most motivated. Through the research conducted they collected evidence  that shows that the even though the kids with the higher IQ's started at a higher level when it came to understanding math the children who reported that they were motivated to learn math were the ones who picked up the math skills faster. 

Terri Goldson's curator insight, February 1, 2014 3:21 PM

Unfortunately the intelligence quotient has always been the standard measure used within education and beyond, that is said to determine our ability to learn. We know through common observation, that premise is not always an indicator of success. Other very important factors play a role in everyone’s ability to navigate through life.  Factors such as motivation, determination, perseverance and other intangibles are important influences. Tapping into those essential elements will make learning more meaningful for all learners.  Knowledge IS Power!

Motivation is important not only in math but in every part of work

Interesting, in other ways this could also be seen as framing learning as a constant performance of assessment. Where do you draw the line ?

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.

Don't bother me, Mom, I'm learning! : how computer and video games are preparing your kids for twenty-first century success and how you can help! / Marc Prensky ; with a foreword and contributions ... | digital divide information | Scoop.it

Marc Prensky presents the case that video and computer game playing, within limits, is actually very beneficial to today's "Digital Native" kids, who are using them to prepare themselves for life in the 21st century. The reason kids are so attracted to these games is that they are learning about collaboration, risk taking, strategy formulation and execution, complex moral and ethical decisions. 

Full of common sense and practical information, this book provides parents with a large number of techniques and approaches they can use to improve both their understanding of games and their relationships with their kids.
