Over the past six months our school has handed out just shy of five hundred iPads to pupils across two year groups and teaching staff. The mere logistics of physically handing them out were challenging enough, and lessons were learnt, but our most important lessons have come from where it really matters, and that is ensuring that tablet devices are successfully embedded into our teaching and learning practices.

Russell R. Roberts, Jr.'s curator insight, December 31, 2014 9:11 PM

According to Harvard Business School Professor Clayton M. Christensen, disruptive technologies are trends that unexpectedly displace current practices and create new ways of looking at business, the global economy, and the way we liver.  Christensen has identified several movements that will alter our lives over the next few years:

 

Mobile Internet.

Advanced oil and natural gas recovery.

Autonomous vehicles.

The Internet of Things.

Automation of Knowledge Work.

The "Cloud".

Next generation genomics.

Next generation storage.

Advance Rotobics.

3D Printing.

Renewable Energy.

Advance materials research.

 

Any combination of these factors will alter our lives forever.  True interconnectivity is coming to the world.  Aloha, Russ.

I  really liked the UDL Design Approach. It gives  a lot  of space to learners and voice  thoughts of the learner.  Hundreds of schools are way behind still using "traditional models ' of learning & teaching.

what is surprising is that the Head od the Deparments still don't know what is happening is  E_ teach  or New Trends of Teaching.
