"From 8th January – 22nd March I chose one class, my First Year class (aged 11-12) to give up using exercise books, reading books and textbooks. Instead, they would use only digital mediums that were available to them through an iPad that they were supplied with during each lesson.
"We are now at the halfway point of this test, and I wanted to reflect a little on what I have found so far."
Our educational system should first expose students to information literacy and critical thinking in elementary school. Students should develop information literacy as a "habit of mind" that enables them to be sophisticated information finders and users by the time they reach college and then the working world.

The Digital Learning Transition (DLT) #MOOC A Massive Online Open Course for Educators (MOOC-Ed)
The DLT MOOC-Ed will help you understand the potential of digital learning, assess progress and set future goals for your school or district, and plan how you and your colleagues will proceed to achieve those goals. It is designed for school and district leaders involved in planning and implementing K-12 digital learning initiatives. We recommend that members of school or district planning teams participate together, but individual educators are also welcome.

" Dr Ian Green from the School of Education here at Adelaide and I [Allan Carrington] have used Padagogy 101 (introduction to iPad in HE) and Padagogy 201 (more advanced use for L&T) to train over 600 faculty from universities in Australia. During my research I saw lots of great work done by others using Bloom’s Taxonomy including the Revised Taxonomy which has now become the Bloom’s Digital Taxonomy. However when I discovered the excellent pioneer work done by Kathy Schrock with “Bloomin’ Apps” I got the idea for the Padagogy Wheel. Dare I say it but it is the next version for mobile learning of the ongoing importance of Bloom’s Taxonomy. Bloom’s is still fundamental to good teaching and learning."

This is our collection of news, articles, interviews, videos, and other ideas that we've found related to Local Food Systems. We'll accept any article that connects to this concept. Some will be about farming, others about food, some where the "local" suggests small communities here in Michigan where we live, and still others whose "local" is in Europe or Asia. The idea is to connect the dots for the ongoing conversation of Local Food Systems wherever they may be, so we can be better informed.
