Graphite - A New Way to Connect Teachers With Technology | GatesNotes

Graphite - A New Way to Connect Teachers With Technology | GatesNotes | 21st Century Teaching and Technology Resources | Scoop.it
Bill Gates is excited to launch a new free product called Graphite in collaboration with Common Sense Media. Graphite will focus on ratings and reviews for educational web sites, apps, and services.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

"Graphite will focus initially on ratings and reviews for educational web sites, apps, and services. A staff of experienced educators will offer their own editorial reviews.


We’re also building an active community of teachers who are using these products and sharing their own opinions. The video above explains more about how Graphite will work."


Sounds like a positive "Keep Moving Forward" approach for the 21st Century teaching and learning environments.

The 4 Levels Of Learning Analytics | Edudemic

The 4 Levels Of Learning Analytics |  Edudemic | 21st Century Teaching and Technology Resources | Scoop.it

Using data to drive learning outcomes isn’t a new concept, really. For as long as teachers have been giving students assessments, the assessments and results have been used by both students and teachers (even if only loosely) to determine how to move forward. What needs to be reviewed more? What was covered/studied well? 

 

Learning analytics takes this concept and kicks it up a notch. Well, more like a thousand notches, especially if you’re considering things like adaptive computer based testing that changes as students use it.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

"Do you use the four levels of learning analytics to drive change and learning in your classroom? Do you do it with technology or without?"

 

How can you apply what was learned toward a 21st Century teaching and learning environment?

21st Century Work: Career-Readiness Isn't What It Used To Be

 

Thinking of jobs, careers, and pay is–by some–being replaced with the idea of work, relationships, and meaning. Technology and the resulting connectivity are a part of this. In the 21st century, we all have personal “brands”–digital footprints that precede and proceed us, leaving a record of our interactions and ideas for anyone to see.

Making Learning Meaningful: 6 Priorities For Whole Learning

 

There is, of course, no single “best” way to pursue “21st century learning”–nor any learning at all for that matter. But seeing the way other inspired educators pursue the idea can teach each one of us a lot. In this model, we appreciate the inclusion of self-knowledge, as well as moving past the idea of content to true disciplinary knowledge–seeing knowledge in context and application.

The Secret of Self-Regulated Learning | Faculty Focus

The Secret of Self-Regulated Learning | Faculty Focus | 21st Century Teaching and Technology Resources | Scoop.it
Self-regulated learning is like your own little secret. It stirs from within you, and is the voice in your head that asks you questions about your learning.

More formally, self-regulated learning is the conscious planning, monitoring, evaluation, and ultimately control of one’s learning in order to maximize it. It’s an ordered process that experts and seasoned learners like us practice automatically. It means being mindful, intentional, reflective, introspective, self-aware, self-controlled, and self-disciplined about learning, and it leads to becoming self-directed.
Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

This teaching approach can be included within both inquiry and problem-based learning strategies which can be blended in your 21 st century teaching and learning environments.

In my new book, “Deeper Learning: How Eight Innovative Public Schools are Transforming Education in the Twenty-First Century,” I take you inside a growing movement that represents what should be the new normal. 

 

Deeper Learning is a set of student outcomes that includes mastery of essential academic content; thinking critically and solving complex problems; working collaboratively and communicating  effectively; having an academic mindset, and being self-directed.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

"Deeper Learning truly has the ability to redefine what teaching and learning looks like in the 21st century. It’s time for us to invest in Deeper Learning and designate it as the new normal."

5 Things Researchers Have Discovered About MOOCs | Wired Campus - Chronicle of Higher Education

5 Things Researchers Have Discovered About MOOCs | Wired Campus - Chronicle of Higher Education | 21st Century Teaching and Technology Resources | Scoop.it

In December 2013 a group of academics gathered during a Texas snowstorm and began the second phase of a discussion about massive open online courses. They were not terribly impressed by the hype the courses had received in the popular media, and they had set out to create a better body of literature about MOOCs—albeit a less sensational one.

 

The MOOC Research Initiative, backed by the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, had given many of those academics research grants to study what was going on in the online courses. Now the organization has posted preliminary findings from some of those research projects.

Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.'s insight:

"The findings have not yet been peer-reviewed and should not be generalized, but they do represent some of the most rigorous analysis to date on MOOCs."


Review these interesting research results which can lead to improvement to your MOOC-based Blended learning environment.
