The tip about planning a parallel lesson without digital tools and access is a good one. The teaching and learning should rise above the tools being used.

Blended and Hybrid Environments are Driving the New Global Movement in Education | #ModernEDU | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Today’s global employers are searching for employees that have specific skills. Those skills may not be the same needed in 10 years though. In 2009, the US Department of Labor estimated 65% of today’s school children would eventually be employed in jobs that have yet to be created. The number is far higher today. The influx of technology is what has changed the shape of education forever. For this reason, schools must create opportunities for students to engage in higher level thinking skills and experience 21st century skills while using technology.

Stephen Hawking: "I Am Convinced That Humans Need to Leave Earth"

Stephen Hawking: "I Am Convinced That Humans Need to Leave Earth" | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
Back in May, renowned physicist Stephen Hawking made yet another doomsday prediction. He said that humanity has 100 years left on Earth, which knocked 900 years off the prediction he made in November 2016, which had given humanity 1,000 years left.

With his new estimate, Hawking suggested the only way to prolong humanity's existence is for us to find a new home, on another planet.

Speaking at the Starmus Festival in Trondheim, Norway on Tuesday, Hawking reiterated his point: "If humanity is to continue for another million years, our future lies in boldly going where no one else has gone before," he explained, according to the BBC.

Specifically, Hawking said that we should aim for another Moon landing by 2020, and work to build a lunar base in the next 30 years - projects that could help prepare us to send human beings to Mars by 2025.

A sober warning from astrophysicist Stephen Hawking.  We have less than a century to get our act together before wars, politics, over population, famine, and climate change doom our species. Hawking believes we must leave planet Earth to preserve our species.

Opinion: Forget “digital natives.” Here’s how kids are really using the Internet

Opinion: Forget “digital natives.” Here’s how kids are really using the Internet | Educational Technology | Scoop.it
By challenging the assumption that every child growing up today is a one-size-fits all digital native, we can make sure each of them can find their own way to relate to technology — whether using it to accomplish basic tasks or to create new technologies and worlds. Being aware of our kids’ differences now is what could help keep them from drifting apart.

Chris Carter's comment, July 5, 9:37 PM
A much more nuanced view, and one that I appreciate. I have long called so-called digital natives "digital naives" because the majority of kids only know enough about tech to use it to accomplish what they wish to accomplish. Tech does not really come any easier for them. Tech is simply more common to them.
