I'm putting this helpful list in the course design hopper right away. Whether in the classroom or online, we all struggle with distractions.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 21, 7:59 PM

This applies to adults, youth, and children in their learning whether it is digital, blended, or face-to-face. Learning should be about questioning, problematizing, getting emotional about something that is important, etc. and sharing those things. Good teaching helps create spaces where that can happen.

Teachers as Technology Trailblazers: The 2014 Horizon Report Focuses on Pedagogy | E-Learning | Scoop.it

The Horizon Report, an annual paper that focuses on the emerging trends for technology and schools, is often recognized for the ways it analyzes TOOLS.

.However, this year, it's taken a different approach. The insightful group of educators (including my boss, Rob Mancabelli) guiding the report decided that the two fast trends for teaching and learning with technology are strongly focused onPEDAGOGY. .Specifically, the two fast trends are cited in the report as follows:Rethinking the roles of teachersShift to deeper learning approachesIn short, the changes that are happening this year specifically relate to the way we teach and the way we learn.

Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, July 8, 9:43 AM

Creating policies and rethinking teachers' roles is about including teachers in the conversation. Most of what I experienced was download and offloading. This was particularly the case towards the end of my career.

6 Powerful Strategies For Deeper Learning In Your Classroom - Dr. M.R Martinez Te@chThought | E-Learning | Scoop.it

"In my new book, “Deeper Learning: How Eight Innovative Public Schools are Transforming Education in the Twenty-First Century,” I take you inside a growing movement that represents what should be the new normal. Deeper Learning is a set of student outcomes that includes mastery of essential academic content; thinking critically and solving complex problems; working collaboratively and communicating  effectively; having an academic mindset, and being self-directed.


This more robust and responsive educational experience offers a new framework for educators and schools to rise to the challenge of preparing students for college, careers, and the world today. The eight schools profiled in my book are embracing Deeper Learning principals with six core strategies."
