Striking a Balance: Digital Tools and Distraction in School | Going Digital | Scoop.it
Edutopia blogger Mary Beth Hertz considers the problem of digital distraction in school, the dividing line between mobile devices helping and harming student performance, and the good-sense policy of teaching self-management skills.
Sarah McElrath's insight:

A big issue with no clear answer--education needs to have an on-going discussion including students.

Visual Lists of Educational Apps for Teachers and Students

"In their attempts to establish a 1:1 program for the year 6 class, St Oliver Plunket has recently held a series of workshops in order to develop their students skills before they were officially given management of their very own devices.

The workshops were particularly centered around teaching students about some tips and tricks for managing their iPad, email etiquette, successful searching and copyright and creative commons. I personally was thrilled by the efforts these people from St Oliver are putting into making their 1:1 program a success and I hope other schools would do the same."

10 Ways Teacher Planning Should Adjust To The Google Generation

10 Ways Teacher Planning Should Adjust To The Google Generation | Going Digital | Scoop.it
10 Ways Teacher Planning Should Adjust To The Google Generation
Sarah McElrath's insight:

"The age of knowing is slowing giving way to an age of data navigation, and what students need help with should be adjusted accordingly."


Although critical thinking has always been a goal of education, I believe now that the need to memorize facts has diminished (since information is at one's fingertips), those higher level thinking skills have become THE goal of education. Or at least they should be. 


I believe one of the barriers to this kind of teaching and learning is that it is much more non-linear. It's messy and it takes longer -- all of which makes it harder to test and more difficult to organize into periods in the school day.


Great article that should get people thinking and discussing.
