Good, clear infographic comparing different learning theories alongside connectivism. Interesting to consider, whether you appreciate the theory or not.

In This Flipped Class, Teachers Learn From Students' Video -- THE Journal | Elementary Education | Scoop.it

By Kim Fortson

Summary by SmartBrief on EdTech

 

"A middle-school teacher in Amherst, N.Y., has adopted the flipped instructional method -- with a twist. Rather than creating instructional videos for his students, Rob Zdrojewski has his students use screencasting technology to create instructional videos for teachers. In the videos, which serve as professional development for teachers, students offer instruction on technology, such as using Gmail and Google Drive. Each video is 90 seconds or less."

Collaborative Learning for the Digital Age

Collaborative Learning for the Digital Age | Elementary Education | Scoop.it

"Research indicates that, at every age level, people take their writing more seriously when it will be evaluated by peers than when it is to be judged by teachers. Online blogs directed at peers exhibit fewer typographical and factual errors, less plagiarism, and generally better, more elegant and persuasive prose than classroom assignments by the same writers. Longitudinal studies of student writers conducted by Stanford University's Andrea Lunsford, a professor of English, assessed student writing at Stanford year after year. Lunsford surprised everyone with her findings that students were becoming more literate, rhetorically dexterous, and fluent—not less, as many feared. The Internet, she discovered, had allowed them to develop their writing."

My favourite part where it refers to the issue of plagiarism: 

"The enduring response to this issue is to set aside technology as the culprit and to focus on the importance of digital citizenship."

This is the kernel of the problem (and many others) in digital land. If students are educated to be responsible digital citizens from an early age, plagiarism SHOULD be less of a problem.

Wayne Lang's curator insight, April 29, 2013 11:24 PM

Students of 1251EDN, are you interested in changing/enhancing your view of teaching and learning in this digital age? Think about the systemic support that already exists for teachers to utilise many of the digital age facets.

3 Tips on Integrating Technology in the Classroom

3 Tips on Integrating Technology in the Classroom | Elementary Education | Scoop.it

Integrating technology into a high school classroom isn't a one-step process. 'You can't just slap a netbook [computer] on top of a textbook and say, Great, now we have technology,' says Bob Wise, former governor of West Virginia and president of the Alliance for Excellent Education, an advocacy organization. Wise says that digital learning starts with teachers, whose performance is enhanced by technology—not the other way around.

Connected Learning: In the Age of Digital Information

Connected Learning: In the Age of Digital Information | Elementary Education | Scoop.it

Are we really taking advantage of this digital information age to enhance the quality of today's education? Are we keeping pace with the fast-changing learning styles of our students? Do we know when, how, and what technology to use in our classrooms ? Do schools and curricula facilitate the integration of such technology ? These and many other similar questions are in the core of the present debate about the kind of education students need to success in a digitally focused world.

Sarah's curator insight, March 11, 2014 10:45 AM

This gives an informative video about the new age of technology and advancements in the classroom. The new era of technology is prevalent in society, so should it also be reflected in the classroom? I think this article is beneficial in pointing out how quickly technology is changing around us- which is in turn becoming a more and more prevalent part of the professional workplace, so it makes sense that we integrate this new technology in the classroom to allow students to become more familiarized with it and better their education through new and more innovative ways in order to keep up with the rest of society. I am curious to learn about how making the classroom more digitally focused benefits/harms the students' ability to learn as a whole.

Digital Age Learning

Digital Age Learning | Elementary Education | Scoop.it

"...paragogy is an extension of the concept of scaffolding (proposed by Jerome Bruner), where knowledgeable others (teachers or peers) can create optimal learning environments in which students can learn more than they would if they were studying on their own. Paragogy takes scaffolding farther though, because peers are in an equal relationship. The exchange conditions are duplex - that is, they work both ways and reciprocal learning is achieved as learners connect with each other, share their content and ideas, and engage in dialogue. If this sounds familiar, it is exactly what happens informally day in, day out on Facebook, Twitter and other social networking sites."

A Bill of Rights and Principles for Learning in the Digital Age (EdSurge News)

A Bill of Rights and Principles for Learning in the Digital Age (EdSurge News) | Elementary Education | Scoop.it

Work on this Bill of Rights & Principles began in Palo Alto, California, on December 14, 2012. We convened a group of people passionate about learning, about serving today's students, and about using every tool we could imagine to respond better to the needs of students in a global, interactive, digitally connected world.  

 

We believe that online learning represents a powerful and potentially awe-inspiring opportunity to make new forms of learning available to all students worldwide, whether young or old, learning for credit, self-improvement, employment, or just pleasure.  We believe that online courses can create "meaningful" as well as “massive" learning opportunities.  

 

We believe that our culture is increasingly one in which learning, unlearning and relearning are as fundamental to our survival and prosperity as breathing. To that end, we believe that all students have inalienable rights which transfer to new and emerging digital environments.
