Interesante comparación de la dedicación requerida para ser docente en cinco países del mundo.

Looks too certain to me - there must be enormous difficulties in measuring this across cultures, contexts and other aspects of these rapidly evolving ecosystems.

What percentage of your meetings is the word “flipped” mentioned? We seem to have a history of coming up with the most ridiculously bad words to describe what we are doing in higher education. MOOC, blended, hybrid, and now flipped.In many of these discussions about flipped classrooms I hear the same complaints and the same concerns. Perhaps if some of the myths around flipped classrooms could be dispelled we’d be able to have more productive conversations.

Busy teachers should make time for this one. Here's a clever infographic and short video from Jackie Gerstein, Ed.D. Quality work and thinking as usual (Jackie is very sharp).

App Smashing: Combining Google Drive, iTunes U, And Apps In The Classroom - Edudemic

App Smashing: Combining Google Drive, iTunes U, And Apps In The Classroom - Edudemic | eTechnology | Scoop.it
Many schools that have adopted one-one tablet technology struggle with the pre-requisite skills associated with moving files from app to app. This process is now called App Smashing, and when you learn how to use it to your advantage, it really does make things nice and simple.Workflow is king and the easier it is to distribute content, create solutions, and then store that information for feedback, the more success you will have in the digital classroom.

The phrase that jumped out at me is "Workflow is king..." . The classroom is all about flow.  


The use of tablets can be daunting when it comes to getting your documents to go where you want them to go. So, flow seems a good topic to investigate.


Slide on into this article. It will help!

Monique Markoff says: "Some would say in this model the teachers matter less since computers are taking over some of the instruction. But I actually think teachers matter more in this model. They are now the orchestrators of these complex learning paths, picking which program should go for which student. They have to now target all the skills that the computer can’t do.  How to motivate that child. How to connect what they’re doing to their home life."

Brian Romero Smith's curator insight, May 17, 2014 2:53 PM

You've heard of Blended Learning strategies by now along with all the other technology driven methods available. What this particle TED talk focuses on is building a model that encourages student led learning using technology, while the teacher serves as the motivator, and your guide for exploring the student's learning potential. The most important aspect however when trying to implement a Blended learning model,  is being flexible in its delivery and outcomes.  As there are many ways to  build your platform, just keep your students at the forefront of your decision making in order to Meet Them Where They Are.

The 8 Key Elements Of Digital Literacy - Edudemic

The 8 Key Elements Of Digital Literacy - Edudemic | eTechnology | Scoop.it
Many teachers have added ‘digital literacy’ as number four on the list of literacies their students should have (or be working towards, in most cases). Reading, writing, and math are now followed by digital literacy. Obviously, depending on the grade level you teach, your students will have different abilities in each of the four areas, so your expectations and your teaching approach may differ quite noticeably from your colleagues. But the nagging question still remains for many teachers – what exactly is digital literacy?

The eight C's devised by Doug Belshaw are a neat framework to consider for use in thinking about digital literacy. There are others that are also useful and that is also useful. It will be interesting to note how this field is defined over time.
