Educational Technology: Highly Used Apps in High Schools

Educational Technology: Highly Used Apps in High Schools | Digital influences in schools | Scoop.it

"Ask a group of high school teachers what they want from technology in the classroom, and you’re likely to hear variations on three answers: They want tools that help students write well, do research based on solid references, and improve time-management skills. When students enter high school, educational technology is no longer mainly for drilling or practice or simply keeping students engaged. Now tech provides the day-planner, the reference library, and the easily carried note-taking method that can help high school students succeed."

Since this is becoming very important to what we do with the Common Core, this seems a good read.

Changing literacies for a digital future. 

David Cook's curator insight, August 7, 10:34 PM

I found this to be a lot of bark with no bite.  But that's may be because I'm already sold on the need for digital literacy in education, and am much more interested in reading about specific content, frameworks, curriculum, etc.

Beyond the digital divide: young people and ICT - CfBT

Beyond the digital divide: young people and ICT - CfBT | Digital influences in schools | Scoop.it

Parents need to inculcate an attitude towards technology, computers and the internet amongst their children which regards the former as useful tools in both the pursuit of knowledge and learning and the direct completion of school work, including homework. Parents should feel properly supported and equally able to support their children.

Lindsey Carroll's insight:

I fear the divide will only get larger if parents do not fully embrace new technology and remove any fear of it they may have.

You can download the complete report from here. Although the UK is the focus of the research I think the findings apply equally within any country that has developed good internet access to a high degree.

The whole project blows my mind!

Deanya Lattimore Schempp's curator insight, June 22, 2013 12:31 PM

Whoa!  

"In a ground-breaking initiative called Midsummer Night’s Dreaming, delivered in substantial part by Google’s creative division, the action will primarily be experienced at one digital remove through a dedicated website – dream40.org – which has already gone live. This site will anticipate, comment on and followShakespeare’s action – as enacted largely unseen by the RSC cast – using specially devised materials, whether it be tweets, animations or other postings, and will draw too on material supplied by the online world. In other words, it will be the buzz around the events – some of it generated by 35 ancillary characters, specially created for the occasion – that takes centrestage."
