One-Third of U.S. Students Use School-Issued Mobile Devices -- THE Journal

One-Third of U.S. Students Use School-Issued Mobile Devices -- THE Journal | digital divide information | Scoop.it

by David Nagel

 

"New research indicates virtually all middle and high school students have access to mobile devices and are using them for schoolwork. And nearly a third of them are using mobile devices issued by their schools.

 

"According to the report, "The New Digital Playbook: Understanding the Spectrum of Students' Activities and Aspirations," issued by Project Tomorrow in an event taking place in Washington, DC today, 89 percent of high school students (grades 9–12) and 73 percent of middle school students (grades 6–8) have access to smart phones. Another 66 percent in both groups have access to laptops. Sixty-one percent of middle schoolers and 50 percent of high schoolers have access to tablets. And 48 percent of middle schoolers and 39 percent of high schoolers have access to digital readers."

The world's largest photo service just made its pictures free to use | The Verge | digital divide information | Scoop.it

Starting now, that's going to change. Getty Images is dropping the watermark for the bulk of its collection, in exchange for an open-embed program that will let users drop in any image they want, as long as the service gets to append a footer at the bottom of the picture with a credit and link to the licensing page. For a small-scale WordPress blog with no photo budget, this looks an awful lot like free stock imagery.

6 Channels Of 21st Century Learning | TeachThought

6 Channels Of 21st Century Learning | TeachThought | digital divide information | Scoop.it
What is 21st century learning, and how do networks and technology function within it?

 

In pursuit, the theme of “21st century learning” often surfaces, a popular label that, while perhaps cliche, still seems to be necessary as we iterate learning models, fold in digital media resources, and incorporate constantly changing technology to an already chaotic event (i.e., learning).

 

This has produced our 9 Characteristics of 21st Century Learning, a kind of overview we created in 2009, and our Inside-Out School model that is meant to be a kind of bridge between current school design and what’s possible moving forward.

Ross M. Adcock's curator insight, March 24, 11:39 PM

A great look into new channels of learning that need to be addressed and accommodated for in the modern classroom, involving concepts such as media literacy, autonomy and creative thinking. This post on TeachThought is a great example of teachers thinking about how to best evolve their teaching practices to suit their students' needs.

Kirsten Macaulay's curator insight, March 25, 4:48 AM

6 Channels Of 21st Century Learning

1. Dialogic Response: Learning is a conversation–whether personal, local, and direct.

2. Community Interaction

3. Abstraction & Creativity: Creativity isn’t just art and whimsy.

4. Media Literacy: Digital media evolves constantly.

5. Play: This is the opposite of compliant response to teacher-centered environments.

6. Self-Directed Learning: broadly can include academic response, project-based learning, game-based learning, and  other learning forms

Brad Merrick's curator insight, March 25, 7:14 AM

Places emphasis on the need to encourage thinking and play as we learn, trusting the individual and encouraging their creativity.

"Since the 1995 introduction of the TIMSS studies (Trends in International Mathematics and Science Study) and the 2000 start of the PISA assessments (Program for International Student Assessment), much ink has been spilled on the subject of where American schools and American students stand vis-à-vis their international counterparts. While the TIMSS and PISA rankings themselves are straightforward, there is considerable disagreement, often contentious, over what those international comparisons tell us about the state of American education. Both market critics of American public education and critics of the market-based reforms of the last decade and a half point to American education’s international standing as evidence that supports their respective policy agendas, while others dispute the very suggestion that meaningful causal
links can be drawn between the international rankings and broad policy agendas. Other flash points revolve around how educational performance is shaped by the rate of childhood poverty, by the professional status of teachers, and by theexistence of a national curriculum and national standards. The panel will discuss these and other facets of America’s education from a global perspective."

Saying that it has always been this way, doesn’t count as a legitimate justification to why it should stay that way. Teacher and administrators all over the world are doing amazing things, but some of the things we are still doing, despite all the new solutions, research and ideas out there is, to put it mildly, incredible.

 

I’m not saying we should just make the current system better… we should change it into something else.

How to Reinvent Project Based Learning to Be More Meaningful | MindShift | digital divide information | Scoop.it
Project-based learning continues to be misinterpreted as a single teaching strategy rather than as a set of design principles that allow us to introduce the philosophy of inquiry into education in an intelligent and grounded way. It’s time to not only address the flaws in PBL, but to reinvent it in a way that leads to deeper learning, creative inquiry, and a better fit with a collaborative world in which doing and knowing are one thing.

Are the projects interrelated / themed toward learning objectives? Did students develop good quality portfolios and provide presentations to enhance the learning experience within the learning environment? Is the Rubrics focused on process or production or both?

Tips to Help Teachers Take Control of Their Professional Development - Edutopia | digital divide information | Scoop.it

by Dave Guymon

description by Middleweb SmartBrief

 

"Middle-grades educator Dave Guymon in this blog post suggests four methods of teacher-led professional development. His suggestions include blogging about teaching practices to reflect and catalog personal growth as an educator and attending a teacher-led Edcamp conference. "At the heart of any approach to professional development is an attitude about how, when and where we learn best," he writes. "In today's educational ecosystem, the answers to these questions can largely be found online."
