One of the unstated aspects of the emerging hidden curriculum is that we are connected 24/7 to our work. We learn this in school. Furthermore, we now provide our employers with our devices to do their work.

This infographic is about BYOD in education, but I think it is applicable to most enterprise BYOD strategies.

Ten Disciplines of a Learner: Learning vs Mastery

Ten Disciplines of a Learner: Learning vs Mastery | education k-12 | Scoop.it

Ten Disciplines of a LearnerWe decided to continue the conversation on this topic at a faculty meeting. Several meetings later we had a new report card. We decided to give two grades and average them—one for “Learning,” the other for “Mastery.”Sara might get an “F” in mastery and an “A” in learning, culminating in a “C” for the course. To be rigorous we picked ten observable behaviors and named them “Disciplines of a Learner:”1. Asks questions2. Builds on other people’s ideas3. Uses mistakes as learning opportunities4. Takes criticism constructively5. Speaks up6. Welcomes a challenge7. Takes risks8. Listens with an openness to change9. Perseveres in tasks10. Decides when to lead and when to follow.

Interesting thought having two grades in a report to parents one for learning and one for mastery. It would acknowledge those students working hard and at their optimal level but perhaps not mastering at the same level.

What is possible in a learning environment today? One idea you might want to explore is Connected Learning. "CLA is on our short list of thought leaders that help push us to think about how education is changing in a modern world, which is why we’ve shared some of their models in the past, including their iconic Connected Learning model. Recently, we also discovered that they’ve shared the design principles of that model, along with a description of each."

You’ve heard “collaboration” repeatedly referenced as an important 21st century skill. With built-in interfaces for connectivity, mobile devices such as iPads offer a wide variety of alternatives for people wanting to connect and work together. Collaboration can take many forms in an educational context and you may want to consider different tools depending on your specific objectives. Here’s a list of some common collaborative activities and the tools and apps you might want to consider for each one.

The 21st century leader must have the ability to make the most out of every situation. They are courageous and not afraid to challenge the status quo and push the boundaries to make things better.

"I was speaking (tweeting) with Mark Barnes tonight, and he mentioned the idea of challenging existing forms and practices. And then someone tweeted the above image–a quote attributed to Rear Admiral Grace Hopper, according to the image source globalnerdy.com–and I was happy and favorited and saved and blogged.The most dangerous phrase in the language is “we’ve always done it this way.” Which applies to education, too."

How many times have you heard the phrase "We've always done it that way" but you are aware that the way it was done is not working? What if this year you choose to try new ways, such as project-based learning, or allowing students to help write rubrics. Take a few minutes as we enter this new year and decide what you might like to do differently. Make sure to collect the data, but be creative and push the envelope. Miracles may happen!

"Unlike the numerous graphics I shared here on the topic of flipped learning which were substantially theoretically based, the one I have for you today provides a practical demonstration of how Dr.Russell flipped his classroom . The graphic also features some of the activities and procedures he drew in his flipped instruction. Another section of this graphic highlights some of the bearings of this flipped methodology on students performance particularly in terms of the enhanced test scores. The purpose behind sharing this visual is to provide you with a concrete example of how you can go about integrating a flipped learning methodology in your instruction. This is only a paradigmatic example which you can adapt with due modifications to your own teaching situation."

Where's the evidence? - Connected Principals

Where's the evidence? - Connected Principals | education k-12 | Scoop.it

"When talking about new and innovative ways to teach students, a question that I constantly get is “where is the evidence that this works?”  The problem with trying something new, there is rarely evidence to support it because it is new.  That being said, I am seeing many educators be the “guinea pigs” themselves and trying out new strategies for learning on themselves and with staff.  If there engagement and learning is improving from their own experience, it is more likely to make an impact on students.  We have often believed that teachers should be experts on “teaching” when the reality is that they should be experts on “learning” first.  Immersing themselves into learning opportunities will help them get closer to that standard than simply reading about teaching techniques."

6 Good iPad Apps to Enhance Kids Mathematical Thinking ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | education k-12 | Scoop.it
"Below is a set of good iPad apps that you can use with your kids and students to enhance their mathematical thinking. These apps are meant for young learners and are specifically useful when introducing kids to those rudimentary notions of mathematical computations. The purpose of teaching kids to think mathematically, as detailed in Kaye Stacey's paper, is three folds: First, it will allow kids to conduct mathematical investigations by themselves. Second, it will help them acquire other thinking skills particularly problem-solving and as mathematician Paul Halmos (1980) stated, 'problem solving is the heart of mathematics'. Third, it helps kids get a deeper appreciation of mathematics and use it in their daily and working lives."

The 7 principles of highly effective innovation culture change programs

The 7 principles of highly effective innovation culture change programs | education k-12 | Scoop.it

Nothing is more constant than change. Furthermore, the speed of change is accelerating. So for instance, the global knowledge is growing exponentially, disruptive megatrends are shaping the innovation agendas and new approaches for capturing value by innovation  are becoming mainstream. Thus, new realities for innovation management are emerging and firms are forced to change their innovation management ever faster. A large study from 2013 showed that only 1 in 2 major change programs succeed. In this 2-part article series, innovation-3’s Frank Mattes shares his deep experience in designing and implementing innovation culture change initiatives. You will find ideas and inspiration about how your firm can increase the chances for success in changing innovation culture.

A Wonderful Poster on Failure ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

A Wonderful Poster on Failure ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | education k-12 | Scoop.it

"I have always believed that teachers (and people in general) MUST have an open midset; one that tolerates and celebrates mistakes and errors; one that looks at failure as an opportunity for a better beginning. It is through falling down that we stand up robust and it is through misfortunes that we gather our strength to live the life we want and pursue our dreams.

If we want to raise up socially and  emotionally strong students who can face up and overcome  the hardships of life, an important key in this is to teach (and model) them about failure. We need to show them that failure is a healthy sign and a good omen for a healthy life experience. They need to view failure as an attempt for deep reflection and meditation about what work or did not work. They also need to be reminded that failure has been a common denominator behind most of the historical achievements and invention in the history of humankind."
