Many schools that have adopted one-one tablet technology struggle with the pre-requisite skills associated with moving files from app to app. This process is now called App Smashing, and when you learn how to use it to your advantage, it really does make things nice and simple. Workflow is king and the easier it is …

The Bluecat Screenplay Competition blog recently alerted me to this excellent TED Talk given by Phil Lord, the co-writer and co-director of 21 Jump Street and (@melmadethis - @ShowerThinker: The Best TED Talks on Writing, Creativity, and Storytelling:...
"Innovating thinking is one of those awkward concepts in education–one that is often espoused, but isn’t measured, reported on, trained around, or celebrated. It’s just sort of there.Innovative thinking in students will flower when we design classrooms that absolutely can’t survive without it. Same with critical thinking, self-direction, creativity, and so on. Until we reach that point, it’s on the shoulders of the classroom teacher to tease it out of students through a combination of inspiration, modeling, scaffolding, and creating persistent opportunity."
According to Boyd (2010) curators help people to focus their attention on the most relevant and important information streams. Valenza (2011) tells us to take advantage of the work of others passionate about a topic and use their curated work as a search tool.Fiorelli (2011) describes content curators as “critical knowledge brokers”.
Librarians, journalists, and teachers have always curated: they evaluate, select, collect, present, and promote material for their users, readers and students; but these days curation is becoming an important activity for a broad range of people and for a variety of reasons and purposes.
"MOOCs – Massive Open Online Courses – have been grabbing headlines and conference time for a year or two now. It’s the very large numbers that attract attention. But are MOOCs solving any real, global education problems? They are certainly not solving the problem of providing the 100,000,000 university places now needed by young people in emerging economies desperate for HE. This will double by 2025. They are not the people taking MOOCs.
They are not solving the problem that in the US student loan debt is now higher than credit card debt; nor the problem that in the UK 40% of student loans will not be repaid. University fees remain high while graduate pay is still low."
"National OER policies determine the framework within which other OER actors can develop. By doing so they form a mighty leverage to shape the OER ecosystem of a country. Though we are still at the beginning, initial achievements are promising. Approaches like the OER policy registry by Creative Commons provide the possibilities to follow and speed up the development. Supportive will also be, that openness and sharing are among the core values of the OER movement. If we manage to obtain this also for the field of policy by sharing our experiences and lessons learned, fast progression should be possible."
