Ana Cristina Pratas's curator insight, February 27, 2013 9:40 AM

New learning technologies hold great promise for supporting student learning with well-designed and research-based adaptive, interactive, accessible and personalized environments. These new environments generate large amounts of data that may help educators understand more about student growth, make more informed decisions, and improve learning opportunities overall for individuals, groups, and the education system as a whole.

InnovatingCreatingThinking's curator insight, March 6, 2013 11:33 AM

Students in successful classrooms not only understand what they are learning, but why they are learning it and how it connects to the world beyond the classroom. Whether it is designing all the components to make a house in a high school maths/technology class or reading a home reader in primary school, students are able to connect with the what, how and why  of learning.
