Confession: I'm an Olympics junkie.  I love the stories, the countries, the sports I've never heard of, and all the ceremonies that go with them.  Using the Olympics as a theme in the classroom is a lot of fun, and can definitely be used in language lessons.  This site has several resources for different ages and subjects.  Bring the Olympics to your ESL/EFL classes!

What are Personal Learning Networks?

What are Personal Learning Networks? | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
If you assume students are only learning from eLearning courses, you are failing to leverage a huge part of the learning process.

Ask yourself where do you learn?

Most of us might answer “in a classroom”, but, in reality, the majority of learning comes from other places, like Personal Learning Networks. And these networks are personal, meaning there are no two PLNs that are equal; each of us has a unique range of people we learn from including peers, coworkers, supervisors, experts and other professionals. Today more learners use tools like Google and Wikipedia to acquire new skills and knowledge. They subscribe to personal and professional blogs. Or they ask questions through their social media networks to get the most relevant answers from the members of their PLN.

Modern Learning: 6 reasons why learning has changed forever

Modern Learning: 6 reasons why learning has changed forever | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
There was once a time when you learned primarily while sitting in a room, listening to a lecture, and perusing assigned readings in paper textbooks. Now, in modern learning environments, the information and skill-acquisition paradigm has evolved to incorporate technology, and a plethora of knowledge sources can leave learners feeling overwhelmed. Add to that the instant nature of Google searches and the multitude of ads that accompany them, and the result is knowledge-driven consumers who struggle with patience and focus. Reaching the modern learner requires an understanding of how they interact with the world and their preferred avenues for accessing information.

'Teachers must embrace new technology or risk becoming obsolete'

'Teachers must embrace new technology or risk becoming obsolete' | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
One undeniable fact about teaching is that teachers not only need to be masters of content within their subject area, but they must also be masters of education as a subject. Another undeniable fact is that neither of those subject areas looks the same as when any teacher first mastered them.

One effect of the integration of technology into our society is that change in almost everything is happening at a pace never before experienced by mankind. As much as some people may yearn for the simpler times of the past, life will continue to move forward as the natural order of society requires.

The influence of additional information on any subject often affects how we deal with that subject. Once we had more information on the effects of smoking, smoking habits of millions of people changed. Once we learned what we now understand about the benefits of physical activity, several sports related industries were spawned. Once we learned what we now know of communication, music and print industries disappeared while being replaced with better in many ways.

Cognitive Load Theory: Making learning more effective | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Cognitive Load Theory builds upon the widely accepted model of human information processing shown in Figure 1 (this was published by Richard Atkinson and Richard Shiffrin in 1968.)

It describes the process as having three main parts: sensory memory, working memory and long-term memory. Since then, many researchers have added to our understanding of this concept, but the basic model remains the same.

The Elementary Math Maniac: Memorizing Facts Versus Knowing Facts From Memory

The Elementary Math Maniac: Memorizing Facts Versus Knowing Facts From Memory | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
I still focus on fluency with multiplication facts in fourth grade but fluency has a completely different meaning to me now. The way I work on fluency now does not involve timed tests. It does not involve kids being anxious or feeling unsuccessful at math. Instead I focus on developing number sense which helps kids learn and remember strategies that make them fluent with their multiplication facts. To the untrained eye, it often appears as if my fourth graders have memorized their facts when they actually know their facts from memory.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, July 1, 10:41 AM

Environmental activists are often frustrated when climate change skeptics do not listen to the scientific consensus that the Earth's climate has changed because of humanity's collective actions.  On the flip side, some environmental organizations, such as Greenpeace, ignore the overwhelming scientific consensus that GMOs are safe for human consumption.  Both have been highly politicized and tap into larger narratives that confirm particular world views.  Most of the opposition to GMOs is not because of the information that is out there, but the fear of the unknown that GMOs illicit.

When faculty members at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point took away students’ computers and tablets in an introductory economics courses, their students' grades jumped.

The study of those faculty members' findings, published this month by the School Effectiveness and Inequality Initiative at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, suggests that male students and students with high grade point averages at the beginning of their college careers are most susceptible to their grades suffering from device-induced distraction.

Los educadores qu no sepan utilizar la tecnología convergente en sus clases, deberían remover las portátiles, tabletas y móviles inteligentes. Esas tecnologías se convierten en distractoras del aprovechamiento académico que impone el sistema educativo. Un aumento en los resultados de las pruebas estandarizadas evidencian el impacto que tiene la remoción de todo artilugio tecnológico que desconecte al estudiante de su proceso de estandarización. Preserven la pedagogía medieval como sistema de dominio social. Sigan llenando las esponjas vacías (mentes) de los estudiantes con contenidos impresos y estáticos. Que el discurso retórico de la clase magistral convierta a los estudiantes en profesionales obedientes que siguen las directrices de sus superiores.

Dejen el camino libre a todo aquel educador disruptivo que quiere transformar el aprendizaje de sus estudiantes. Que los estudiantes se empoderen de los recursos tecnológicos para construir sus propias redes de aprendizaje hiperconectadas. Que sean ellos quienes se apropien de su propio proceso de aprendizaje.  Dejen utilizar sus dispositivos digitales para crear, construir, codificar, programar, diseñar, reflexionar, experimentar, investigar, colaborar y comunicar. Conviertan el aula en un entorno de aprendizaje extendido, abierto, ubicuo e inclusivo.
