25 Ways To Use Pinterest In The Classroom According To Bloom’s Revised Taxonomy Social media is a waste of time, they say. It’ll rot your brain, they say. Pinterest is all Ryan Gosling, misleading...
Faculty and graduate students at Johns Hopkins University, an elite private research institution that costs undergrads $61,000 per year, are up in arms about a new strategic plan that proposes sweeping changes (and cuts) to its Ph.D.
I've no stake in the death of the academic tenure system. It is entertaining to see this system described with a dash of gonzo cynicism. There is a screaming need for well trained brains... but the demands are outside the walls of academia.
Excited to download a preview of this new book, co-authored by one of the orginial iEARN educators, Sonny Magaña, who (with his guitar) attended most of the first ten IEARN conferences.

Morris, S.M. and Stommel, J. (2013) A Bill of Rights and Principles for Learning in the Digital Age Hybrid Pedagogy,
" The question then comes to my mind as to why it has been necessary to spend time discussing and agreeing on principles and rights that most people in public education already accept. One reason I suspect is a concern that developments in online learning outside formal, public education have the potential to run roughshod over these rights and principles. For instance, highly selective, campus-based, elite universities, at least until very recently, have not subscribed to some of these rights and principles, yet are now ‘discovering’ open learning through MOOCs, while still denying many of these rights to potential on-campus students."-online-learners/#sthash.eZpqTl5m.dpuf

Thinking about going back to finish a degree online after an absence of several years? In the two articles, I will detail five pitfalls you should seek to avoid. Even the most prepared students can fall prey to these traps — and this is especially true for those who have not had an online class experience.
Thinking about going back to school online? Here is some solid advice to help you prepare for the new challenge of learning online.
This is the first article I wrote about 'the flip', back in 2011. The articles I reference provide a good introduction to flipped instruction.
Here's a series of articles about the flipped classroom written by Kay Walsh and curated by Kay Lehmann of UW-Stout.
7 stories from 7 teachers about flipping the classroom.

A lot has been written about the digital native since the coining of the term about ten years ago. A lot of what has been originally written by the digital native has been taken as common sense and has been repeated many times in many educational contexts, but until recently the true nature of the digital native has not been explored. Because the myth of the digital native is still alive and well, this article aims to examine the findings that have come out of recent research with regard to digital natives and their true nature, as well as turn a critical gaze onto the assumptions, taken as common sense knowledge, of what the characteristics of digital natives are.Keywords: Digital Natives, Research, Characteristics, Technology, Availability, Usage

The eighth-grade class hosted nine UW-Stout technology education majors who are learning to teach K-12 technology classes. The college students created robots that can be used to demonstrate a few basic engineering concepts, said their instructor, Dave Stricker, assistant professor and program director of engineering and technology education at UW-Stout.

Today, we present an interesting showcase of screen capture tools that demonstrate effective and competent screen capturing.
Niet nodig voor een Mac, maar misschien handig voor de PC'ers...
While it's easy to capture te screen, the fine points of capturing effective ones are not always intuitive.
So many handy screen capture tools and some screencast apps to boot.
When students are doing research, they sometimes struggle with citing their sources or moving beyond a quick search with Google.com. The Google Docs Research Pane helps to facilitate searching for and citing sources. By going to Tools –> Research, the Research Pane pops up on the right hand side! You can search Google, images, scholar, quotes, and dictionary! By dragging and dropping certain content (e.g. images), not only will the material appear, but a footnote (in MLA, Chicago, or APA format).
Super cool. I had no idea this feature existed!
Great tips for how to integrate use of GoogleDocs into research activites to help support ethical use of information.
A learning design toolkit to create pedagogically effective learning activities

Old but still relevant - just needs revising (you can apply web 2.0/social media etc to this and you have a great take on learning design
This insightful and detailed post from Tony Bates gives those of us in North America a more global perspective.
I was recently asked, "Why are you giving the teachers choice of a laptop? Why not just go all in with one device?" My answer, simply stated, is that homogenization of any tool is never a good idea i
"homogenization of devices allows everyone the chance to start out on the same footing, but eventually schools need to open up and let students own the device and, inevitably, own their learning."
A good video can be a powerful tool for helping students understand new concepts. The challenge isn’t locating quality instructional clips—but rather organizing your selections.
COOLNESS! I already use @huzzaz and I like it! Give it a whirl!
"Google Tips is collection of Google product use examples and tips. You can select a specific product to learn about or scroll through the whole gallery of tips for all products."
Check out Google Tips to learn more about the many products that Google offers. One you find a tip that interests you and click on it you will find a short description, "stuff you need" (typically a Google account and perhaps a short amount of time based on what I viewed) and a presentation that walks you through steps. This is geared more to beginners and may be a great tool for students whom may be trying new tools.
Tips for use of Google+ features. Great for inspiring your own use for them!!

Is teaching students how to judge the quality of information and knowing where to find the best information the bigest instructional challenge that academic and school libraries now face?
Not only must our students find evidence, they must also judge the quality of that evidence! Take away: Judging the quality of information is at the top of the list! (Research!)
