Oskar Almazan's curator insight, February 17, 12:35 AM
10 highlights capture the big picture themes of educational change that underpin the 18 topics:

1 Advancing progressive learning approaches requires cultural transformation.
2 Real-world skills are needed to bolster employability and workplace development.
3 Collaboration is key for scaling effective solutions.
4 Despite the proliferation of technology and online learning materials, access is still unequal.
5 Processes for assessing nuanced skills at a personal level are needed
6 Fluency in the digital realm is more than just understanding how to use technology.
7 Online, mobile, and blended learning are foregone conclusions. 
8 Learning ecosystems must be agile enough to support the practices of the future.
9 Higher education is an incubator for developing more intuitive computers.
10 Lifelong learning is the lifeblood of higher education

Julian Diaz's curator insight, March 20, 3:28 PM
i'm sure that most of nowaday's teachers have used ICT's in classroom and actually enjoy doing it. It has became a really necessary tool the use of virtual aids into the classroom.
Here there are 7 proposals of "modern tools" to use into the classroom that are specially usefull for gropus tasks.

In my personal opinion I really liked numer 1 which is a board tool that lets users organize thoughts and ideas spatially and plus, it could be connected to youtube and google drive (two digital toolsvery used by students) and i liked numer4 aswell because it is specially designed for children and teenagers.

Enjoy the reading and i hope my colleagues use some of these digital tools in their classes.
