A New Great Digital Citizenship Poster for Your Class ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Entry Points | Scoop.it

"Raising a digitally savvy and responsible student does require  explicit modelling  and instruction on how to deal with the vagaries of Internet. 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. This kind of knowledge is at the core of the digital citizenship concept."

Visible Thinking

Visible Thinking | Entry Points | Scoop.it

Visible Thinking: Purpose and Goals
Visible Thinking is a flexible and systematic research-based approach to integrating the development of students' thinking with content learning across subject matters. An extensive and adaptable collection of practices, Visible Thinking has a double goal: on the one hand, to cultivate students' thinking skills and dispositions, and, on the other, to deepen content learning. By thinking dispositions, we mean curiosity, concern for truth and understanding, a creative mindset, not just being skilled but also alert to thinking and learning opportunities and eager to take them

The Five Technology Megatrends summarized below are creating winners and losers faster than ever before.

New Wonderful Twitter Guide for Teachers and Educators ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Entry Points | Scoop.it

"The power of Twitter resides in the kind of connections and networks it allows you to make.Twitter is by far the social networking platform that teachers and educators populate the most. As such, creating a personal/professional learning network comprising kindred others is as easy as participating in the weekly educational chats organized on Twitter (#edchat as an example). These meet-ups enable you  to meet and connect with teachers from all around the globe. They also introduce you to a treasure trove of information, resources, links, tips, and learning experiences that can be leveraged for your own purposes."

So as this generation of students comes up through school, we will really have to adjust the way they receive information.  We cannot stay stagnant.  We'll lose every student out there.  And I wouldn't blame them.

Your Assumptions About Reading Are Wrong !

Your Assumptions About Reading Are Wrong ! | Entry Points | Scoop.it
We all know that no one reads books any more, right? It’s because of the internet, and twitter, and Justin Bieber, I think. The argument for this was summed up by Nicholas Carr in his article Is Google Making Us Stupid? You can see it in these stats too – this is data from Gallup showing how many people answer “yes” to the question “Are you currently reading any books or novels at present?”

Augmented Reality Simply Explained for Students ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Entry Points | Scoop.it

"Augmented reality should not be confused with virtual reality, for the boundaries of each concept are clearly demarcated. While virtual reality denotes a reality that exists only in the virtual world (online), augmented reality, on the other hand, keeps the real world but only adds a digital layer to it. or amplifies it. In other words, augmented reality gives you  actual information without changing or displacing the real world you are experiencing."
