How to Improve Literacy and Numeracy Skills (and Scores if You Care About Such Things) | Effective Digital Learning | Scoop.it
The only way to improve data-driven scores en masse is to use public policy to address the main cause of low test scores: poverty. The only way to improve them in a given school is to teach to the test....
Donna Fry (@fryed)'s insight:

"People with experience know that standardized tests merely measure socioeconomic status, culturally-specific knowledge, fluency in English, and knowledge of how to beat the test; people without experience cry havoc for more accountability in teaching and more rigor in the curriculum."

The Teacher's Guide To Choosing The Best Digital Content - Edudemic

The Teacher's Guide To Choosing The Best Digital Content - Edudemic | Effective Digital Learning | Scoop.it

"A blended learning environment means you’re mixing technology with standard teaching practices in order to enhance education. In other words, you’re mixing a little bit of tech with a little bit of in-classroom learning and you’re getting something better than the sum of its parts. Blended learning is becoming the biggest trend in education technology lately as teachers (hey that’s you!) realize technology isn’t the magical unicorn of education. It’s not enough to simply throw an iPad into a student’s hands and walk away."

Educational Technology Is Making Achievement Gaps Even Bigger

Educational Technology Is Making Achievement Gaps Even Bigger | Effective Digital Learning | Scoop.it

They select different programs and features, engage in different types of mental activity, and come away with different kinds of knowledge and experience.
