Leveraging the ‘Instrumented’ Pocket & Backpack

Leveraging the ‘Instrumented’ Pocket & Backpack | Future education | Scoop.it

"Many students put in their backpacks and their pockets things that matter to them for their day to day living. This often includes an electronic device. Why?  It’s because these devices are part of the tools they use in their everyday life. The devices they bring are part of who they are as people. It’s how they connect and become communicators, collaborators, problem-solvers and critical thinkers. So I say, let’s work together and allow them to leverage BYOD (Bring Your Own Device) during the school day and coach them to understand appropriate use in our business of learning together." - blogpost by Lisa Neale

Why We Need to Teach Mindfulness in a Digital Age | Future education | Scoop.it

 

In the midst of this multimedia blitzkrieg, the importance of mindfulness and focused attention is rising.

Neuro Myths: Separating Fact and Fiction in Brain-Based Learning

Neuro Myths: Separating Fact and Fiction in Brain-Based Learning | Future education | Scoop.it

New research on educational neuroscience tells us how kids learn -- and how you should teach.

Let Them Own the Learning!

Let Them Own the Learning! | Future education | Scoop.it

Josh Griffith, the principal of Collins-Maxwell MS/HS in Iowa, is passionate about personalized learning and creating a system that will support the needs of ever learner. Here is his blog post "Let Them Own the Learning".

 

"How do you learn best? What are your interests? What are your strengths and weaknesses? What motivates you? How fast of a learner are you?
