"What [teachers] really need is training and clear criteria against which to evaluate and choose technologies; they need to be able to make informed decisions about whether or not to integrate them into their classrooms. They also need to be reassured that if their goal for students is language learning then technology is just a means to an end, not an end in itself."

Let’s take the focus off the tool; Instead, let’s focus on:

the pedagogy behind the tool and use it because it addresses our students’ cognitive needs, not because it is available or exciting.

How can games unlock a rich world of learning? This is the big question at the heart of the growing games and learning movement that’s gaining momentum in education. The MindShift Guide to Games and Learning explains key ideas in game-based learning, pedagogy, implementation, and assessment. The guide make sense of the available research and provide suggestions for practical use. The post series will evolve into a downloadable guide, and can be used as a touchstone for thoughtful consideration of best practices for teachers and parents.

12 Principles Of Collaboration In Learning - TeachThought

12 Principles Of Collaboration In Learning - TeachThought | SoHoInt  Critical Creative Thinker 046 | Scoop.it

"Recently on westXdesign–via scoopit–we found an interesting graphic about naming 12 principles of collaboration.

 

Collaboration is among the most-often promoted fluencies of 21st century learning (along with creativity and communication). However, there are very few frameworks or models that exist to support the development of better collaboration forms. As it is, in many K-12 learning environments, collaboration is limited to teacher-created grouping, or more scattered project-based learning groups that converge on a single project and thus a single goal.

 

The following principles of collaboration (seemingly created for businesses but clearly applicable to learning) push that idea a bit further–with some important emphases on the individual, including:"

Schools are often difficult places in which to collaborate, given the time required. Technology enables online collaboration, but the first step is the mindset required.
