Oh boy, oh boy!  When I was a student, we worked like blazes becoz we had to or we'd've failed, but we had FUN too - lots and lots of it!  Now these poor devils are being analysed to death - and not even good jobs at the end of it -  Guys, u woz robbed...  the world has just been computerised to death!   Kids, take my advice, Have Fun  - don't look back on your student days and sigh for lost opportunities.

Infographics, when used correctly, appropriately, are powerful tools for conveying a lot of pertinent information plus they support visual learning and thinking.  I curate a Scoopit on Infographics...

 

Beth Dichter's insight:

Jackie Gerstein shares her top picks for education infographics this year. Some of these have been shared in this Scoop.it but many are new. The list of infographics includes:

* The Internet Access Gap in Education

* The Past, Present and Future of Education

* State of Creativity in Education: An Adobe Survey

* The Gamification of Education

* Tapping into Mobile Learning

* Investing in Girls' Education Pays Off

Many of these would be useful as topics for discussion or to use to teach students why infographics are useful in displaying data.

Are You A Tech-Savvy Teacher, This Infographic Will Tell You | TechFaster

Are You A Tech-Savvy Teacher, This Infographic Will Tell You | TechFaster | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
Through the course of our “summer school” here at Techfaster we’ve met plenty of tech savvy educators. From ISTE in early July to the NAESP show and Campus Tech that wrapped up this week, teachers, administrators and education enthusiasts were learning, sharing, and networking with each other. These are definitely the tech savvy teacher type, and that’s validated in the infographic below from Daily Genius. But just because you spent part of the summer at EdTech conferences doesn’t necessarily mean you are a tech savvy teacher. Of course the reverse is true as well, maybe you had family events and your own kids to tend to during the summer. Are you a tech savvy teacher? A strong indicator would be that you’re even reading this article here at techfaster.com. Are you keeping your students, parents, fellow teachers and administrators up to date with the goings on in your classroom with your own blog? That’s a good sign you’re a tech savvy teacher. Just think about what the communication you can have with a blog, would have been like in the days of the ditto machine? You would have to plan out your thoughts, outline them, create a ditto original, print them, pass them out to students, and just pray they didn’t end up on the floor of the school bus. Are you networking with other teachers you’ve never met on Twitter, Facebook, Pinterest or a knowledge sharing educational site? Are you regularly attending edtech chat or listening to podcasts? All of these are signs that you care about your own professional development, living in current times and caring about your students. YouTube, Twitter, SnapChat, Minecraft, Instagram, and Vine are all a part of your students lives. Facebook, Pinterest and email are all a part of your students’ parents’ lives. You’re almost too far behind if you’re not a “tech savvy” teacher. Check out the infographic below and see how you stack up.

Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

We should not confuse being "tech savvy" with having a blog, doing your PD online, knowing the vocabulary, etc. PD is something that is best integrated between many delivery methods, including digital. Knowing the vocabulary does not mean anything. I know teachers who speak Covey all the time and do not know what it means. They know the vocabulary. A key question is what does tech savvy mean?

Distance Learning: An Alternative to the Traditional Classroom

Distance Learning: An Alternative to the Traditional Classroom | Educational Leadership and Technology | Scoop.it
Distance Learning is well known concept but still hasn't reached its full potential. This post explores what distance learning still has to offer us.

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge, Augusta Tech Learning Support Center
Ivon Prefontaine's insight:

We have had distance learning for some time. We do it poorly and just because technology appears does not mean it will be better. We lack effective leadership for that.

Quelques repères historique sur la distance en formation

Megan Schormann's curator insight, January 13, 2014 12:37 PM

Though not critical to my project. I thought important that I know how the schooling has changed and how it has been enforced through the internet. 

Damon Ing's curator insight, July 3, 2016 12:16 AM
This article discusses in detail the alternatives to the traditional classroom. It offers a different variety of ideas that could be used to enhance the traditional distance education model. It is interesting to see that flexibility is one of the strongest benefits to distance learning and has become very popular in other countries. Read on to see the authors opinion on some very important topics.
