Unlocking the Potential of Technology

Unlocking the Potential of Technology | Educational & ICT Leadership | Scoop.it

To thrive in a rapidly evolving, technology-mediated world, students must not only possess strong skills in areas such as language arts, mathematics and science, but they must also be adept at skills such as critical thinking, problem-solving, persistence, collaboration and curiosity. All too often, however,
students in many countries are not attaining these skills. In this context, the World Economic Forum has taken on a multi-year initiative, New Vision for Education, to examine the pressing issue of skills gaps and explore ways to address these gaps
through technology.

Guest Post: Do Students Lose Depth in Digital Reading? | The Digital Reader

Guest Post: Do Students Lose Depth in Digital Reading? | The Digital Reader | Educational & ICT Leadership | Scoop.it
Do students learn as much when they read digitally as they do in print? For both parents and teachers, knowing whether computer-based media are improving or compromising education is a question of concern. With the surge in popularity of e-books, online learning and open educational resources, investigators have been trying to determine whether students do as well when reading an assigned text on a digital screen as on paper. The answer to the question, however, needs far more than a yes-no response. Reading in print versus digitally In my research, I have compared the ways in which we read in print and onscreen. Between 2013 and 2015, I gathered data from 429 university students drawn from five countries (the U.S., Japan, Germany, Slovenia and India). The students in my study reported that print was aesthetically more enjoyable, saying things such as “I like the smell of paper” or that reading in print is “real reading.” What’s more, print gave them a sense of where they were in the book – they could “see” and “feel” where they were in the text. Print is easier on the eyes Print was also judged to be easier on the eyes and less likely [...]

The Merits of Reading Real Books to Your Children

The Merits of Reading Real Books to Your Children | Educational & ICT Leadership | Scoop.it

A new Harry Potter book and a new round of stories about midnight book release parties reminded me of the persistent power of words printed on a page to shape children’s lives.

How do we think about a distinct role for paper, for “book-books” in children’s lives? My own pediatric cause is literacy promotion for young children. I am the national medical director of the program Reach Out and Read, which follows a model of talking with the parents of babies, toddlers and preschoolers about the importance of reading aloud, and giving away a developmentally appropriate children’s book at every checkup.


We are talking about very young children here, and we begin by giving out board books which are designed to be chewed and drooled on by babies who are still exploring the world orally, or thrown down (repeatedly) off the high chair by young children who are just figuring out object permanence and experimenting with ways to train their parents to fetch and retrieve. But the most essential attribute of those board books, beyond their durability, is that they pull in the parent, not only to pick them up, but to ask and answer questions, name the pictures, make the animal noises.

I agree with this message and all parents should understand the numerous values of reading real books. Teachers should continue to be a constant and consistent voice of the merits of reading daily with their children.

Libraries matter: 18 fantastic library infographics

Libraries matter: 18 fantastic library infographics | Educational & ICT Leadership | Scoop.it

"It’s great that such infographics are created. Infographics are a fantastic way to draw attention of online users, and give facts not only in a more digestible, but also highly entertaining way.


Many people still perceive libraries as awesome-looking magical places, full of a scent of old paper. We associate libraries with the past and with the analog world – the world that doesn’t fit into the broadband internet connection.

It’s not true (and I think it never was). More and more libraries lend electronic books, become information hubs, but most importantly, media creation centers.

These infographics change the perspective. They show the beautiful book temples are filled not only with the past, but also with the future."
