“ Three experts shared tech tips and tools during “Flipped School Libraries,” a rapid-fire, dynamic session during The Digital Shift: Reinventing Libraries (#TDS13) webcast.” Through the use of innovative technologies and online resources, school libraries can now be available tostudents wherever—and whenever—they need them. “Flipped” or blended learning offers students thepower of personalized instruction, through a mix of virtual and face-to-face interactions, at a student’s own pace. Embracing this concept is a must for student engagement and the future of the profession, say school librarians Joyce Valenza, Brenda Boyer, and Michelle Luhtala.

12 Principles Of Collaboration In Learning - TeachThought

12 Principles Of Collaboration In Learning - TeachThought | high school learning commons | Scoop.it
"Recently on westXdesign–via scoopit–we found an interesting graphic about naming 12 principles of collaboration. Collaboration is among the most-often promoted fluencies of 21st century learning (along with creativity and communication). However, there are very few frameworks or models that exist to support the development of better collaboration forms. As it is, in many K-12 learning environments, collaboration is limited to teacher-created grouping, or more scattered project-based learning groups that converge on a single project and thus a single goal. The following principles of collaboration (seemingly created for businesses but clearly applicable to learning) push that idea a bit further–with some important emphases on the individual, including:"

Reframing Ethics in a Digital World [Howard GARDNER]

Reframing Ethics in a Digital World [Howard GARDNER] | high school learning commons | Scoop.it

- Schooling and education [in a digital and internet age]

 

Schooling, in terms of people going to a building from 8:00am to 3:00pm, is going to be less and less prevalent. Education is going to be lifelong. It’s going to start very early, and as long as people are active, they are going to have to keep learning. It’s very different than from a century ago when a person attended high school, if that, and he/she was set for life. A lot of education will take place via distance.

 

We don't yet know the pros and cons of distance learning with young kids. I certainly think human face-to-face interaction is very important, but we are going to have to demonstrate that to skeptics. Skeptics will say that if we can do distance learning with a 3-year-old, then that’s the way it should be done.

 

People who believe in face-to face learning and older people who believe in residential education, as I do, will have to show that it has benefits that distance learning does not. Some of the negatives connected with both distance and face-to-face learning (e.g. cheating, bullying) will also have to be dealt with. They wont be able to be swept up under the rug.

 

A MUST read:

Thanks, dear Fabienne, this is really insightful.

In teaching one might want to progressively move from one level to the next, yet I would expect that one could work on all levels simultaneously.

How much more would children learn when they ask their 3-year-old, "What do you think ..."
