As teachers in many communities in the U.S. are being evaluated using new tools this post provides guidance on how technology may be used in the area of Instruction and an additional three posts are available on the site that address how technology may be used in Planning and Preparation, The Classroom Environment and Professional Responsibilities. All are based on the Danielson Framework (and a link to this is available).

Each of the post looks at the domain and contains a Prezi which ideas, resources, videos and more. Consider sharing these resources with faculty at your school.

Watch the Prezi's and see how to share. However, remember, it is a tool, technology is not the be all an end all, although it is a wonderful tool.

Beth Dichter's curator insight, October 20, 2013 6:33 PM

What do you think? Do you believe the results are obvious? If so, you may be surprised. Learn about the "digital natives" in the following areas:

* Who they are

* The top ten countries by percentage

* The young and connected

* Future trends

This infographic could be used to begin a discussion with students by asking what they think? What is the age range for a digital native? Which countries have the most digital natives? What does it mean to be young and connected? What do they think the future holds?

This Is Your Brain On The Internet

This Is Your Brain On The Internet | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it
Is the internet and social media influencing your brain? Documentary filmmaker Tiffany Shlain investigates our changing behaviors in the connected world.

How do media and technology impact our brain? According to a "a recent study, Dr. Small observed brain activity in two groups of subjects interacting with a search engine –one that was 'net-savvy' and one that was 'net naïve'. The results showed increased brain activity in the experienced netizens, reflecting Shlain’s hypothesis that our online behaviors stimulate more brain systems."

A cool self reflecting tool for ways to steer our learning!

Beth Dichter's curator insight, October 24, 2013 6:57 PM

I have posted a number of resources from Ross Parker and this one requires a bit of time to understand…and yes, I think it is worth the time. The directions he provides in the upper right hand corner describe how a student should use this visual, as a tool to “steer & assess your own learning.”

Our students need to learn how to self-reflect and this tool has the potential to engage students and assist them in reflecting on their work regarding topics studied in technology.

You may download this visual as a png, pdf or pages document on the website. Take some time to check it out and see what you think.

How Technology Has Transformed the Classroom (Infographic)

How Technology Has Transformed the Classroom (Infographic) | Educating in a digital world | Scoop.it

"Parents are famous for their ability to reminisce about days gone by. It always starts the same way, “Back when I was your age, we used to walk 10 miles to school barefoot—in the snow.” Or, “I remember when school lunch cost a nickel.”

Thanks to the integration of technology, schools, and classrooms in particular, have changed so dramatically in recent years that some parents might not even recognize them. It’s a classic case of old school versus new school."

This infographic looks at how the integration of technology into schools has made major changes. Learn how many parents used software in school compared to their teenage students; how collaboration has changed; if technology is important to student success (parents view) and much more. If you have an upcoming Open House this might be an infographic that would elicit comments from parents.
