5 Things You Need to Know About 21st Century Learning | Geo-Literacy | Scoop.it

"Through my various roles in the education space over the past three decades, I have talked to educators around the world and had the privilege of watching kids get excited about learning when taking on engineering and project challenges. We know that educators and learners today face some unique challenges, and working with some of the best and brightest in the field of education has opened my eyes to what we can achieve to bring 21st century learning to all students."

Jennifer Hincapie's curator insight, May 4, 9:10 PM
This article offers a snapshot of where ed tech stands now and where it is likely to go in the next five years, according to 56 education and technology experts from 22 countries.

The overall of the topic is divided at three different moments. first, we encounter the trends in educatioon among which we can find deeper learning, rethinking learning and collaboration, it means that these  aspects have started to be included in every-day lesson, and educators have been concerned about it more often than before, but when could it be done?

On the other side, we find the challenges as Authentic Learning, Professional Development, and Personalized Learning & Teacher’s Role, so finally how are we going to conceive technlogy in our classrooms over the next five years?, Are we going to be able to overcome all of these chhallenges, and if so, which is going to be the rle of the educator in the field?, all question that need to be answered

Mei Lin Fung's insight:

Just over a week ago, I attended a great conference organized by Ray Wang CEO of Constellation Research - I tweeted almost 2000 times - he'd gamified the tweeting and set up a leaderboard, so it raised my competitive instincts. it was interesting to see for myself what would cause me to send out so many tweets - it was a fascinating conference - and you scored more points with photos, so during the conference I learned to illustrate almost every tweet with photos. The psychology of twitter is still evolving.... as I am finding out myself as I learn to interact with this new medium

This reminded me of what someone said about the difference between Facebook and Twitter (but regret I can't remember who):

 

Facebook is the place to go to connect with the people you went to schools with.

 

Twitter is the place to go to connect with the people you WISHED you had gone to school with.

 

It works for me!

Emilee Farnes's curator insight, July 14, 12:17 PM
There is an impressive amount of social media articles to include blogs that are specifically meant to assist other companies in their efforts towards successfully publishing via social media. Individuals are blogging to help others potentially in the same field in which they are marketing to. It seems that trade secrets are few and far between. I believe this is because especially on a small scale, for a small business or a home business the time and effort needed to be successful in the world of social publishing is a feat that many attempt and perhaps a majority are not as successful as first envisioned.

The issue

Even today’s students need support with some areas of digital practice, particularly in an academic context, so it’s important to make sure that these needs are met.

While employability is an obvious driver, developing learners who can learn and thrive in a digital society is a key role for universities and colleges.

Probé iPadio en mi clase. Los estudiantes tenían que llamar a mi canal y dejar un mensaje en que dijeron sus planes para las vacaciones de Thanksgiving. La actividad funcionó muy bien, creo que fue una manera chévere de practicar la competencia oral. Algo muy bueno es que pueden grabarse y dejar comentarios en otras grabaciones sin abrir una cuenta. El único problema es que no hay una manera de ver quién llamó - los estudiantes tienen que introducirse cada vez. Muchos de los estudiantes se olvidaron decir su nombre, y por eso fue difícil calificar.

Google Maps now lets you revisit your location history in a detailed timeline | DigitalFootPrint | DigitalCitiZEN | Geo-Literacy | Scoop.it

It’s inspiring — in a crazy sort of way — to consider how efficient Google can be in keeping track of information about you. Today, Google announced the launch of “Your Timeline,” a tool in Google Maps that shares with you all the places you have been. It works if you chose to store your Location History with Google.


Product manager Gerard Sanz detailed the feature in blog post, as the company gradually rolls out the timeline for Maps users.

 

It could definitely serve as a convenience. What with our busy lives, sometimes it’s hard to remember all the stops along the way. Google sees Your Timeline as a way to quickly recall, and even view your past whereabouts.

Not an Introvert, Not an Extrovert? You May Be An Ambivert

Not an Introvert, Not an Extrovert? You May Be An Ambivert | Geo-Literacy | Scoop.it
Ambiverts have introverted and extroverted traits, but neither trait is dominant. As a result, they have more balanced, or nuanced, personalities. They aren’t the folks yammering your ear off. Nor are they the totally silent ones happily ensconced in the corner.

Ambiverts move between being social or being solitary, speaking up or listening carefully with greater ease than either extroverts or introverts. “It is like they’re bilingual,” says Daniel Pink, a business book author and co-host of Crowd Control, a TV series on human behavior, who has studied ambiversion. “They have a wider range of skills and can connect with a wider range of people in the same way someone who speaks English and Spanish can.”

The History of Hashtags [Infographic]

The History of Hashtags [Infographic] | Geo-Literacy | Scoop.it
A lot's happened since hashtags were first proposed on Twitter. Back then, the first generation iPhone was only a few months old. Superbad made a killing in theatres. J.K. Rowling released the seventh, final, and (arguably) most satisfying book of the Harry Potter series.

It took two years for Twitter to fully embrace the hashtag, and it's been a whirlwind of opportunity and embarrassment for both users and marketers ever since. Just look at this post on successes and failures from seven big brands' Twitter hashtag campaigns to see what I mean.

What makes a good story? Strong characters, some suspense, a bit of humor, and a clear outcome.

Telling stories in business is no different; the same elements engage and compel us -- with one exception. The rational decision-making required in the business world needs an objective foundation. That's where data comes to your aid. When you need to deliver an interesting message, prove a point, or communicate information to convince your boss, colleagues, or prospects, data is a great tool to use.

Top Picks for Connecting the Classroom and Real World

Top Picks for Connecting the Classroom and Real World | Geo-Literacy | Scoop.it
It’s a no-brainer that students are more engaged in learning when real-world problems and scenarios support what they’re doing. When students see the connection between what’s inside and what’s outside their classroom, they see that there’s more at stake in learning...

Via Dr. Susan Bainbridge
Mei Lin Fung's insight:

We are wired to connect what we are doing and where we are to other things we know. It is a survival thing - this means that real world learning has an easier time embedding in our brain and is connected to more parts of our brain - so will stay longer. Learning is easier when it comes "stamped' in time and space and context and relevance.
