Understanding personal learning networks: Their structures, content and the networking skills -Rajagopal | Information for sharing | Scoop.it

"Networking is a key skill in professional careers, supporting the individual’s growth and learning. However, little is known about how professionals intentionally manage the connections in their personal networks and which factors influence their decisions in connecting with others for the purpose of learning. In this article, we present a model of personal professional networking for creating a personal learning network, based on an investigation through a literature study, semi–structured interviews and a survey."

Flipping the Library: Tips from Three Pros | The Digital Shift 2013 - The Digital Shift | Information for sharing | Scoop.it
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.

MinecraftEDU - The Virtual School - ClassThink.com

MinecraftEDU - The Virtual School - ClassThink.com | Information for sharing | Scoop.it

by Karl Rivers

 

"The videogame Minecraft has sold almost 14 million copies and has redefined the term indie game. Now thousands of teachers across the world are using MinecraftEDU in the classroom."

 

"MinecraftEDU is a plugin that turns the consumer version of Minecraft into a true teaching tool. The EDU mod adds ways to funnel students and control activities; adds border blocks to limit students to specific areas; instruction blocks to provide initial questions or problems to solve; and adds tools for class management such as teleporting students to the teacher's location, and muting them — a tool many teachers would like in the real world.

 

"Even if your teachers aren't aware of Minecraft, your students almost certainly are. Minecraft is a cultural phenomenon. It may have been designed as a game but Minecraft is world which engages students in a way that shouldn't be ignored. As with other new technologies that schools are currently wrestling with — tablets, social networks, and blogs etc. — Minecraft is a technology that students are engaged with at home, so why not continue that in school?

 

"In a genuine sense MinecraftEDU takes the rules of social etiquette we expect in the classroom and creates digital alternatives that bring order to a limitless world. Admittedly I've never had to excavate a student who had dug too far underground and had got lost in an ICT class before, but there's still a chance."

What's your digital footprint? Take this quiz and find out! | Information for sharing | Scoop.it

I developed this quiz with members of my personal learning network (found at end of post) to get students thinking about their digital footprint. The quiz was created at the request of high school students I spoke with who thought the creation of a such a quiz could lead to a smart conversation about ways students can update their digital footprint so that it is one that leads to college and career success.

Looks like an interesting model for defining student engagement within a technology integration plan.

Nikolaus Wood's curator insight, May 24, 2013 8:24 AM

The idea of introducing technology into a learning environement is nothing new, however it needs to be implemented in such a way that technology does not impeed learning, instead it helps improve it. I believe that if there were courses that used computers for the task at hand and were engadging then students would be less likely to become side tracked and actually spend the time on the computer learning.
