10 Habits of Tech-Savvy Professors | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"If you’ve ever found yourself reciting the phrase, you can’t teach an old dog new tricks, you’ve likely observed older coworkers, and family members refuse smartphones and tablets.

Technology is the hub for learning and being creative in Higher Education.  The ways that expands creativity is structured by STEM and encouragement.  This article promotes the concept that." we are always learning."  That concept has led to the point where teachers accepts the fact that it is alright for them to learn from their students.

6 tools and tips for taking control of your teacher development | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it
As I’m sure you are aware we live in changing times with technology impacting on every aspect of our lives and the lives of our students. Keeping up with these kinds of changes isn’t something we can expect others to do for us. As technology increasingly enables our students to have a greater degree of learner autonomy and drive their own education, we as teachers need to also take responsibility for our own development and ensure we make best use of the opportunities the internet offers.

What is a “No-Zero” Grading Policy?

What is a “No-Zero” Grading Policy? | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it

"Educators who support this policy believe that zero grades can put students in too deep in a hole, making it mathematically impossible for them to pass, which may cause them to disengage from the learning process."

EDTECH@UTRGV's insight:

How Technology Is Transforming the Way We Teach and Learn | Educational Technology News | Scoop.it
Our education system is in need of reform. Most students are not taught to be self-motivated lifelong learners, nor do they come out of the school system with the skills, mindsets, and values required to survive a world of accelerating change. Most students do not graduate to feeling inspired to contribute to human progress.
