Every child in America deserves an education that prepares them for success in college and careers and a rich, fulfilling life. Unfortunately, our antiquated school calendar is too limiting to provide millions of children with the breadth and depth of educational experiences they will need to thrive.

 

But schools that have broken from the bounds of the conventional calendar and schedule offer promising alternatives to the status quo. NCTL has documented the practices of high-performing, high-poverty schools that have expanded time in order to…

Create and Publish Amazing Multi-touch Books for iPad using iBooks Author – mLearnCon 2012 Presentation | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

In preparation for my mLearnCon 2012 presentation I recorded my presentation. Here is the course description:

Apple recently announced their reinvention of the textbook. With this, they noted a new piece of software that could not only revolutionize the way we think about textbooks, but the way we build interactive mobile material as well. With the newly announced free and easy-to-use iBooks Author, the questions are, “How do we use it?,” “How can we implement this in our mLearning Strategy?,” and “Is it even worth doing?”

One-size-fits-all doesn’t work for students or teachers

One-size-fits-all doesn’t work for students or teachers | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

When recently presenting at the Annual Conference for Middle Level Education, I was struck by how much things have not changed, especially in terms of professional development models. In discussions around education reform, we have begun to recognize that a one-size-fits-all model doesn’t work for all of our students, yet there’s little conversation about differentiating PD for teachers, despite differences in experience, content areas taught, and learning preferences.

ASCD Express 8.04 - Field Notes: Shifting from Textbooks to Digital Portals | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

Technology in the classroom is no longer a choice but rather a necessity if educators wish to develop college- and career-ready students. We can no longer afford to teach youngsters the same way that we've taught them for the past 100 years; we must meet and teach our students in the technological media they live in on a daily basis. If we do not, they will begin to see us as relics of the past who are irrelevant to their changing world and will tune us out completely.

Not what it used to be - American universities represent declining value for money to their students | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

Running the numbers ON THE face of it, American higher education is still in rude health. In worldwide rankings more than half of the top 100 universities, and eight of the top ten, are American. The scientific output of American institutions is unparalleled. They produce most of the world’s Nobel laureates and scientific papers. Moreover college graduates, on average, still earn far more and receive better benefits than those who do not have a degree.

Harvard Education Letter - Bringing UDL into the Mainstream

Harvard Education Letter - Bringing UDL into the Mainstream | 21st Century Teaching and Learning Resources | Scoop.it

For the past several years, new teachers joining the Bartholomew (Ind.) Consolidated School Corporation have been encouraged to watch a video introducing the preferred method of teaching in the district. Rather than highlighting a single approach, however, the video is all about encouraging teachers to use varied ways and materials to present new information and to assess learning, be it aurally through talking iPads, visually through doodles on whiteboards, creatively through art projects and games, or by using old-fashioned pen and paper. That’s because the preferred method of teaching in Bartholomew County is UDL, or Universal Design for Learning.
