The 21st-Century Digital Learner

The 21st-Century Digital Learner | ICT Integration in Australian Schools | Scoop.it
After hosting dozens of these conversations, I realize one thing: We just don't listen enough to our students. The tradition in education has been not to ask the students what they think or want, but rather for adult educators to design the system and curriculum by themselves, using their "superior" knowledge and experience.
Via Nik Peachey
Jarrod Johnson's insight:
So important for the students to have buy in with their education.

Zaption - Making Video Interactive | ICT Integration in Australian Schools | Scoop.it
Zaption, a San Francisco based tech startup, is revolutionizing online video for education. Teachers, trainers, and content publishers use Zaption’s intuitive web app to quickly add images, text, quizzes, and discussions to existing videos from YouTube, Vimeo and private video libraries. The result is an interactive learning tour that transforms video from a “lean back” experience to an engaging “lean forward” activity.

10 Teacher-Tested Tools for Flipping Your Classroom - Getting Smart by Susan Lucille Davis - blended learning, digital learning, education technology, flipclass, flipped class, flipped classroom, O... | ICT Integration in Australian Schools | Scoop.it

For the past couple of weeks, I’ve spent some time addressing my earlier commitments to flipping at least some portion of my Language Arts classes. (You can learn about my ongoing saga at “4 Ways Flipping Forces Fundamental Change” and at “Why I Haven’t Flipped…Yet”). Reading FlipYour Classroom by Jonathan Bergmann and Aaron Sams provided practical advice and a justification for flipping, Learning about the Stanford studies that suggest better results from flipping your flipping (that is, doing hands-on work in the classroom first, reinforced by flipped lessons at night) But, ultimately, what I needed to do was to dive in and try out some tools with my kids and my curriculum in mind. The unexpected result: I’ve had to acknowledge something I hadn’t really thought about — I am a video-phobe.

Four Essential Principles of Blended Learning

The single biggest piece of advice offered by most blended learning pioneers is to have a cohesive vision for how the technology will enhance specific learning goals, how it will ease the burden on teachers, and how it can make both teachers and students more creative learners.

As schools become more savvy about blended-learning tactics– the practice of mixing online and in-person instruction — guidelines and best practices are emerging from lessons learned. Here are four crucial factors to keep in mind as schools plunge in.

Focus on what you want students to learn and do first. Then see how technology can support that.

Agreed, and insightful by all. Always put your students' needs first.

OH YES!!  Can't recall how many times in PD I've encountered staff wanting to reduce the whole exercise to collecting recipes as opposed to developiing capabilities that can be generalised and adapted according to learngin requirements!  Seems to occur from K-12 but especially so in Higher ED (where many teachers have no rich education in Teaching and Learning)

Heather Kelly:  "The closing of an online virtual game may sound trivial to anyone who has never used or visited one, but to the people who spent a chunk of their formative years forging relationships inside their virtual walls, the loss can be huge."

Amber Judge's curator insight, September 2, 2013 8:08 AM

Another ethical issue here: If you provide an alternate world in which someone can build their identity, make friends they otherwise wouldn't in the real world and they've spent money on virtual items and then take it all away because the world collapses... What's the ethical actions a company should take to ensure the health and well-being of those people? I mean surely there must be some liability?
