The media love simple, superficial images because they are easy to sell to the masses. This is the same with politicians, and it is the opposite of true innovation. It is sheep following a fashion so that they can appear innovative.

4 Characteristics Of Critical Digital Pedagogy

4 Characteristics Of Critical Digital Pedagogy | Education Technologies and Emerging Media | Scoop.it

"In this idea, Stommel shifts the practice of pedagogy as a vehicle for “teaching” to something more whole–considering the humanities not as a school of thought or academic genre, but rather a reason for being. Humanities teach. The “digital” reaches. Therefore, the digital humanities should reach and teach as a matter of concept and design. That’s what they’re for."

6 Things Teachers Do to Flip the Classroom

6 Things Teachers Do to Flip the Classroom | Education Technologies and Emerging Media | Scoop.it

Get 6 Real World Examples of a Flipped Classroom from Subject Experts.

 

The Flipped Classroom model is changing the ways students learn and teachers teach. When you flip your classroom, you offer your students rich, engaging material to consider at home, and you use class time to help them interact with the ideas. Lecturing during class time is minimized and students have a teacher nearby when they are doing work and most likely to need guidance.

Marilyn Korhonen's curator insight, May 31, 2013 11:11 AM
The key to "flipped" is to rethink who has control of content and learning. These are some great tactics to help move instruction toward more student-led learning.

How To: Use Wikipedia in the Classroom Responsibly

How To: Use Wikipedia in the Classroom Responsibly | Education Technologies and Emerging Media | Scoop.it

The problem is that Wikipedia in the classroom has gotten a bad reputation in the K-12 world, undeservedly so I think. I would suggest that Wikipedia can be used for a multitude of educational purposes at a wide variety of grade levels. Too many teachers are still afraid to use it in class, so I’m here to right that wrong and show our educators how they can responsibly integrate Wikipedia into their lessons.

Be sure to check out Wikipedia’s own resources for teachers as well. They have an awesome 12-week syllabus showing you exactly how you can integrate Wikipedia into your classroom. They also have training designed especially for educators."

 

Ness Crouch's curator insight, May 25, 2013 6:12 PM

Giving these types of skills to students can help them with their understanding of writing and also help teachers with avoiding the copy and paste syndrome in tasks.

Thank you. I'm not quite ready myself to do away with teaching professionals or brick and mortal education. I value learning in a group context. I found the second summary table more useful (pedagogy, andragogy, heutagogy)

NETS for Teachers

NETS for Teachers | Education Technologies and Emerging Media | Scoop.it

ISTE's NETS for Teachers (NETS•T) are the standards for evaluating the skills and knowledge educators need to teach, work, and learn in an increasingly connected global and digital society.

 

As technology integration continues to increase in our society, it is paramount that teachers possess the skills and behaviors of digital age professionals.

 

===> Moving forward, teachers must become comfortable being co-learners with their students and colleagues around the world. <===
