I found this ad from the Endangered Wildlife Trust to be very powerful.  It is a good introduction to systems and systems thinking.

8 Important Questions About Technology and Learning | Edudemic

8 Important Questions About Technology and Learning | Edudemic | digital divide information |
There are so many different challenges that technology integration in the classroom presents teachers. From budgets to hesitant parents to broken devices and totally re-vamping your lesson plans and constantly tweaking with lots of trial and error. It can be fun, hugely rewarding, and a big giant headache, too. But just because it can be …

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

Having the tools, and the know now is one thing. Putting all of this into action in a classroom or learning space id quite a different thing. The public often does not know the blocking problems that keep teachers from being able to integrate technology well.PTA communities with knowledgeable members can facilitate better use of technology in schools where parents have a say and are interested

This post links to a video by Paul Hamilton, Technology in Education. In this 4 minute video Hamilton asks 8 questions that we may want to share with our community, be it our staff, our parents, or the broader community, to begin a dialogue that is lacking in many school districts. Three of the questions he raises are below. Take the time to click through to the post to read the other 5, and if possible find the time to watch this video.

* What do we ant technology to do in schools?

* Are we asking the right questions about technology, learning, and schools?

* Is the way we are using technology now turning our students 'off' to the people and the world around them?

How Pinterest is changing your child's education

How Pinterest is changing your child's education | digital divide information |
Teachers share how Pinterest offers so much more than crafty projects and recipes you'll never make — it's actually transforming lesson plans.

More than just crafts and recipes...great ideas for educators.
J. Mark Schwanz's curator insight, April 20, 2014 10:59 AM

It's true for me. I've found quite a few good lesson plan ideas via Pinterest. I wouldn't go so far as to say it is "transforming" but it is helpful. My one complaint is that too often good lesson plan ideas are linked to Teachers Pay Teachers dot com or similar pay site.
