In other words, they could read for all the same reasons that we can now use computers. We don’t know how to use computers because we learned it in school, but because we wanted to learn it and we were free to learn it in whatever way worked best for us. It is the saddest of ironies that many people now see the fluidity and effectiveness of this process as a characteristic of computers, rather than what it is, which is a characteristic of human beings.

So much wisdom  in this article. Data doesn't have all the answers, and schools are becoming more and more driven by data. Favorite quote: "Because guess what? If there is one thing that the data proves, it’s that our children are all different."  And all children want to learn.

It is not up to our children to accept a disability label in order to “qualify” for an appropriate learning environment; it is up to adults to provide learning environments which are flexible enough to accommodate the natural variations in our children.

A/Prof Jon Willis's curator insight, June 16, 7:12 PM

Although this is a relatively trivial example, the idea of a Bingo approach to skills building is an interesting one - at UQ we're using a passport as part of engagement processes with Aboriginal school students visiting the university. For every activity they participate in, there is a unique stamp for their passport. The bingo card idea is similar so that across a semester, students fill up their bingo card with activities that build their skills in a range of domains, or across a range of technologies or tools.

The 15 Punctuation Marks in Order of Difficulty - Infographic

The 15 Punctuation Marks in Order of Difficulty - Infographic | EFL teacher | Scoop.it
Ever wonder why you can't figure out when and where to stick a comma? It's probably because commas, by far, have more rules and applications than any other punctuation mark. But why do so many people use the semicolon incorrectly? Comparatively, it should be one of the easiest punctuation marks to master. And why doesn't anybody seem to use the en dash?

Delphine Evers's comment, September 16, 9:41 AM
La capture d'écran peut être un moyen de convaincre, elle peut offrir un diagnostic et donne une dimension réaliste à la nécessité de traiter ou d'apprendre... de changer de comportement dans les pratiques. L'image vaut mieux que mille mots et peut renvoyer vers un lien, une application pour en savoir plus, un résumé succin ou un slogan peuvent accrocher et donner envie d'aller voir plus loin. La mise en avant de l'image pour attirer l'attention est importante, comment mettre en avant l'image, il s'agit du pouvoir des mots et de l'image mais aussi de la créativité générée autour de cela.

How to Get the Most Out of Student-Owned Devices in Any Classroom

How to Get the Most Out of Student-Owned Devices in Any Classroom | EFL teacher | Scoop.it

Technical issues with devices can be a headache, so setting some ground rules for device management helps mitigate some hiccups. Mills recommends making it clear that it is students’ responsibility to bring their device to school charged and ready to go. Designating a spot on student desks or tables where devices go when they aren’t being used for a specific assignment is also a great way to deter students from succumbing to distraction.

In an age where everything you do online leaves  indelible marks (digital footprints)  that can be accessed and viewed by anyone , knowing how and what to share and with whom to share it become digital imperatives that every student should be aware of.
