6 Ways Social Media Will Change In 2014 - Edudemic

6 Ways Social Media Will Change In 2014 - Edudemic | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it

This is an older post from edudemic but it highlights some of the key discussions that are taking place in education. For each of these, digital citizenship is a key component as everyone, teachers, students, parents and the public are navigating these different paths, sometimes for the very first time. Digital Citizenship is an integral part of helping others to navigate these different paths. Helping people develop these skills is not only important for their online interactions but, as with some of the skills, also developing face-to-face skills that are key in building relationships, solving problems, working with other people, and socializing. For those who don't use social media, #1 will reign supreme. If you're not already on the social media train, 2014 will be the year to hop on. If you've already been riding the train, check out #2-6 to see what the trends are expected to be!

Biggest Barriers to Digital Learning: Lack of Time, Lack of Devices -- THE Journal

Biggest Barriers to Digital Learning: Lack of Time, Lack of Devices -- THE Journal | Educational Discourse | Scoop.it
The biggest barrier to digital learning for teachers is gaining student access to technology. That's followed by a lack of time during the school day. For administrators, the top concern is providing relevant and effective professional development to their staff, followed by limitations and problems with the technological infrastructure, such as WiFi and security. Overall, across both roles, the main obstacle to integrating technology into the classroom was lack of time and an insufficient number of devices to do so.
Kelly Christopherson's insight:
It seems that time continues to be one of the key issues when it comes to integrating technology. But would it help if some of the other issues - PD, access, hardware - were addressed. Would addressing these issues help to alleviate the time issue?
