any great technology venture (any great company, really) must provide doors to perception and discovery that look well beyond transactional or even relationship benefits to some degree.

Good practical advice
The What Educators Should Know Before Going Digital Infographic highlights some of the areas of technology that educators should examine before moving to a digital platform.
Something has happened in the mobile communications market that has caused a tremendous uptick in operators going to LTE. The GSA recently announced that there were now 202 commercial LTE networks in 77 countries!
Mobile broadband, in my opinion, will overtake the campus network as the primary Internet connectivity. This will happen when access, cost and seamless user exprience provides a real alternative to the campus network. (Institutions should think about Internet cost subsidies to students versus and in lieu major network infra-structure investments on campus).
When this happens, it would by-pass the "last mile" infrastructure challenge. Learning will be everywhere for everyone.
LTE is one step nearer that reality!
While in Australia we aren't using Common Core, good teaching is still good teaching and the resources and ideas here are just as useful.
This sight has many ideas and helpful hints for teachers to learn more about technology and how to use it.

A very useful and interesting set of resources from various sources. Aimed at the Graduate Student Instructor (GSI) it is equally useful I think for academics looking for a range of strategies and resources for teaching. (by Richard Elliot)

THE DIGITAL CITIZENSHIP ...inportant piece.
Traditional pedagogy looks at the inputs viz, teaching and content.- you have taught them.
New pedagogies looks at the outputs - did they learn?
In the former, usually the inputs are measured, viz content quality and teaching quality. the long standing belief is that if these were done well, the (ALL) students WILL learn! However, the normal bell curve proves otherwise:(
In the latter, the key is recognised - did the students learn? In this day, due to the democratization of content of the internet, many students are become self-directed and group-collaborated in their learning. The are BETTER content on the Internet than their teacher teaching (think Khan Academy, as an example, as with some MOOCs, OER, OCW, etc).
There arise a need to re-think the role of teachers, from an instructor to that of a faciliator and a curator (like on scoop.it), from instructivist to constructivisit/connectivist roles.
An educator's guide to open educational resources (OER), including online repositories, curriculum-sharing websites, sources for lesson plans and activities, and open textbooks.
This website helps college teachers develop, deliver, and assess assignments incorporating images, video, and sound.
Fantastic website from Notre Dame helps instructors (and students) design effective media-based assignments. Great examples and how-tos for inspiration.
The media capabilities of student devices (including but not limited to iPads) open up a diverse spectrum of rich assignment formats. This Notre Dame site contains helpful exemplars and instructions for those starting out in this new field of both formative and summative assessment.
Wow denna sida var sååå bra. Jag förlorade mig själv på denna sidan idag! :)))
EDUCAUSE Review Online
The actions toward contemporary transcultural presentation occurs in art practices, and specifically the motif of the action in their manifest art forms. Whenever a discourse is purportedly attached to a certain action or events, the two were originally interrelated. The answer to these enquiries is inexorably connected to the resolution of another complex challenge that concerns the discourses on the enlightenment and the unfolding events attributed to transcultural practitioners by various art promoters.
This board features some interesting books for teachers to read.
The Wired Child Infographic explains all about Generation C showing the benefits of teaching a child to use technology, along with how to spot the signs of technology addiction.
Early adopters share how schools can find success with teachers and students alike--even when the technology seems as topsy-turvy as the lessons.
Flip for success!

sorry to distract, but this visual on distraction is insightful!
Is your company too bogged down in meetings, emails, policies, and procedures, leaving little time for big-picture thinking and innovation?
Creative destruction for purposeful re-construction - this is the essence of innovations, which higher ed needs higher than anything else to remain relevant, useful and contributory in the new economy. The question has always been how, the implmentation.
The idea and stratgic plans are the easy pieces. The challenge is almost always the implmentation gap. Here's some food for inspirational thoughts and small prgamatic steps.
There are a number of advantages associated with implementing e-learning and our customers come to us for different reasons. Here are some of the top reasons why our customers use e-learning.
The human brain is capable of 1016 processes per second, which makes it far more powerful than any computer currently in existence. But that doesn't mean our brains don't have major limitations.
This explains lots ;)
