"We’ve all heard it before, “Kids don’t know grammar anymore because all they do is text,” or “Today’s generation misses everything going on around them because they’re staring at their phones.” But a recent research study by UCLA warns the damage of too much screen time may be even worse than many of us imagined."

In the three decades since the Internet evolved from an experimental band of academic and government computer systems into a globe-spanning network of interconnected systems, the amount of time spent online has grown to rival (or even exceed) the time spent living offline. Personal computers, tablets and smartphones have made the connected life a reality, and the number of folks pursuing it has exploded.

8 Important Questions About Technology and Learning | Edudemic | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it
There are so many different challenges that technology integration in the classroom presents teachers. From budgets to hesitant parents to broken devices and totally re-vamping your lesson plans and constantly tweaking with lots of trial and error. It can be fun, hugely rewarding, and a big giant headache, too. But just because it can be …

This post links to a video by Paul Hamilton, Technology in Education. In this 4 minute video Hamilton asks 8 questions that we may want to share with our community, be it our staff, our parents, or the broader community, to begin a dialogue that is lacking in many school districts. Three of the questions he raises are below. Take the time to click through to the post to read the other 5, and if possible find the time to watch this video.

* What do we ant technology to do in schools?

* Are we asking the right questions about technology, learning, and schools?

* Is the way we are using technology now turning our students 'off' to the people and the world around them?

Annie Paul Murphy writes an intriguing article that looks at what may be happening to students as more and more technology becomes a part of the school day. Check out these two facts.

"One thousand: That’s approximately the number of instructional hours required of U.S. middle school and high school students each year.

Four thousand: That’s approximately the number of hours of digital media content U.S. youths aged 8 to 18 absorb each year." 

Murphy discusses work done by Patricia Greenfield, a developmental psychologist at UCLA. One of her points is that education at school is "formal education" while the time students spend out of school using digital media is "informal education." If this is accurate then would schools be better off having students "read copious amounts of information." 

There is a discussion on how video games build spatial skills and inductive reasoning, and may help "their ability to divide their attention among many things happening at once on the screen" and much more.

This article may make your brain work as you wrap your mind around the information that is shared. If you are looking for an article to discuss with other teachers this might be one to choose.

Managing Information in the 21st Century - The Tempered Radical | E-Learning Methodology | Scoop.it

Bill Ferriter is spot on in the slide he presented at a 21st Century Teaching and Learning workshop.  CCSS requires that students be able to find, organize, annotate, evaluate, synthesize, create and publish using digital tools.  

 

Tools such as Diigo, Evernote and ScoopIt! help students organize, filter, annotate, and organize information. Advanced Google search skills are used to find and verify information. Social media such as Twitter, Facebook, Skype, and yes even Pinterest help learners collaborate. Finally, creating and publishing is accomplished with a myriad of tools such as Glogster, Google tools including docs, blogs and YouTube, FlickR, WordPress and much more.
