This looks like a great way for schools to host video and build learning around it. There is also a plugin for Moodle making it easier to import in video.

Does Tech Hold Back Educators?

Does Tech Hold Back Educators? | Digital literacy and blended learning | Scoop.it

Teaching is not easy. It is a profession that requires educators to be relevant. Being relevant doesn’t come with age. Just the opposite occurs, and it requires work to keep up. Teaching is not a profession that enables one to stop learning after the degree is earned and the job is secured. Technology is moving us all too fast for anyone to sit back relying on old methods and tools.

 The transaction can reduce colleges’ academic mission to that of middleman, reselling course materials produced elsewhere. If schools are offering the same basic courses with minimal variations, it makes it all the more difficult to sell themselves to prospective students or justify their tuition levels.

Digital content delivery is still content delivery.

In other words, they could read for all the same reasons that we can now use computers. We don’t know how to use computers because we learned it in school, but because we wanted to learn it and we were free to learn it in whatever way worked best for us. It is the saddest of ironies that many people now see the fluidity and effectiveness of this process as a characteristic of computers, rather than what it is, which is a characteristic of human beings.

So much wisdom  in this article. Data doesn't have all the answers, and schools are becoming more and more driven by data. Favorite quote: "Because guess what? If there is one thing that the data proves, it’s that our children are all different."  And all children want to learn.

harloff's curator insight, August 14, 10:38 AM

It is not up to our children to accept a disability label in order to “qualify” for an appropriate learning environment; it is up to adults to provide learning environments which are flexible enough to accommodate the natural variations in our children.
