A new report from the World Economic Forum and Boston Consulting Group finds skills gaps in language arts, math science, critical thinking, problem solving, creativity and curiosity among a range of countries and income levels and suggests that technology could help address the issue.

For those interested, a primer on the "Closed Loop" instructional approach.  Many are using this approach already but may not be calling it as such.

These 7 sights may not be new to you but this is a great place for them to sit as a reminder. The only one that would not be applicable within our district would be the Microsoft site (since we are Google only).

Are You A Tech-Savvy Teacher, This Infographic Will Tell You | TechFaster

Are You A Tech-Savvy Teacher, This Infographic Will Tell You | TechFaster | Linking Literacy & Learning: Research, Reflection, and Practice | Scoop.it
Through the course of our “summer school” here at Techfaster we’ve met plenty of tech savvy educators. From ISTE in early July to the NAESP show and Campus Tech that wrapped up this week, teachers, administrators and education enthusiasts were learning, sharing, and networking with each other. These are definitely the tech savvy teacher type, and that’s validated in the infographic below from Daily Genius. But just because you spent part of the summer at EdTech conferences doesn’t necessarily mean you are a tech savvy teacher. Of course the reverse is true as well, maybe you had family events and your own kids to tend to during the summer. Are you a tech savvy teacher? A strong indicator would be that you’re even reading this article here at techfaster.com. Are you keeping your students, parents, fellow teachers and administrators up to date with the goings on in your classroom with your own blog? That’s a good sign you’re a tech savvy teacher. Just think about what the communication you can have with a blog, would have been like in the days of the ditto machine? You would have to plan out your thoughts, outline them, create a ditto original, print them, pass them out to students, and just pray they didn’t end up on the floor of the school bus. Are you networking with other teachers you’ve never met on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest or a knowledge sharing educational site? Are you regularly attending edtech chat or listening to podcasts? All of these are signs that you care about your own professional development, living in current times and caring about your students. YouTube, Twitter, SnapChat, Minecraft, Instagram, and Vine are all a part of your students lives. Facebook, Pinterest and email are all a part of your students’ parents’ lives. You’re almost too far behind if you’re not a “tech savvy” teacher. Check out the infographic below and see how you stack up.

7 Razones Por Que los Educadores Tienen Que USAR vereda Los Medios Sociales:

Celeste Weinstein's curator insight, February 20, 2014 9:51 PM

EDCI397 emphasizes the need for teachers to develop their PLN, and this blog post demonstrates the positive impact these connections can have on the classroom as a whole. Teachers who become connected through social media, such as Twitter or Pinterest, can gain the tools they need to better engage their students. Although I was initially reluctant to use Twitter and other social media as an educational tool, the collaborative opportunities and the chance to help students and their parents connect with the classroom and the world around them made me realize how essential the use of social media in the classroom can be.

How will disruptive technology change education?

Jeroen Bottema's curator insight, August 27, 2013 2:08 AM

"

What will education look like in the future?

Considering that 10 years ago very few students carried smartphones, andtablets didn’t even exist, it’s impossible to look 20 or 30 years into the future. It is likely, however, that cloud-based technology will be the foundation for educational technology and that remote, online learning will continue to grow at a faster pace.

Will the developing world catch up with the developed world? Will residential colleges be as popular as they are today? And what about degrees…will they still mean something to employers?"

Treathyl Fox's comment, August 27, 2013 10:09 AM
I'm not a geek or tech type. I should have kept up with the technology revolution, but I didn't. But with respect to what I did learn and derive benefits from? If it's real progress, let it run its course. Don't get in the way and don't try to stop it. "Education is priceless."
Treathyl Fox's curator insight, August 27, 2013 10:11 AM

"Education is priceless."  It's not a process that should be disrupted.  If technology is disruptive, that's just ignorant!
