Louise Robinson-Lay's curator insight, January 9, 2013 6:17 PM

Tecnology can be a great way of encouraging reading rather than something that takes its place. Edudemic outlines a few ways to use tech to engage younger readers. A handy list for teachers and librarians as well as parents.

9 Mistakes In Technology Integration In Education

9 Mistakes In Technology Integration In Education | Informed Teacher Librarianship | Scoop.it
Michael Trucano approaches education technology from a refreshingly different perspective: The Pessimist.

As senior ICT and education specialist at the World Bank in Washington D.C., Trucano advises many developing countries on their education technology spending. He sees many pitfalls and warning signs and encourages nation states to be smarter, discerning customers. He’s observed many missteps along the way and suggests nations separate the hope from the hype of online learning.

This is the quote I really like from this report - great opportunities for teacher librarians.--- ”Digital citizenship and child safety will become an important part of what schools teach,” he said. ”Most kids are not digital natives” as much as we think they are. He notes they still need guidance in using technology to learn.

I think there is merit to what Ms. Ileanes says, however I still believe that a teacher needs to be a blogger.

Jim Lerman's curator insight, December 21, 2012 7:45 PM

If you are just beginning your connection with Scoop.it, or even if you've been using Scoop.it for awhile, you are sure to pick up a pointer or two from Ms. Ileane Smith's podcast. She's soooo enthusiastic and quite complete in her coverage. Great job. And she's correct about being able to establish yourself as an authority without having to write a blog.
