Ivon Prefontaine's curator insight, January 7, 10:42 PM

A key will be that students need to learn when and how to use technology responsibly. This will require adults who are able to setting excellent examples for students. It will be about learning together rather than teaching and learning as two separate concepts.

 

We will need leadership not management in education.

Kiruthika Ragupathi's curator insight, January 8, 6:47 PM

Do we remove all digital distractions from the classroom, or is it important to learn a new set of behaviors that need to be taught and modeled? What to do about it?

Hey friends, this is a really interesting article! The ten signs that you are a tech-savvy teacher suggests that upcoming teachers should be well versed with twenty-first century skills, they should be themselves intrinsically motivated, and they should be without the inhibition to share tips and stuff on learning topics to one and all, and that includes even those whom they do not know! Collaboration should be high on the list of priorities for the successful teacher of the twenty-first century!

10 Social Media Skills for The 21st Century Teachers | Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Leading EDge | Scoop.it

The potential of social networking sites in education is huge and we need to capitalize on it to enhance our professional development and consequently improve the quality of our instruction. Searching for articles on this topic , I came across Doug Johnson's post on the 10 social media competencies for teachers [http://doug-johnson.squarespace.com/blue-skunk-blog/2010/7/31/top-ten-social-media-competencies-for-teachers.html ]. I like the competencies Doug included and decided to make an infographic featuring all of these skills.  Have a look and share with your colleagues.

Flipping the iPad Enabled Classroom (Part 1 of 2) | Leading EDge | Scoop.it

"The Flipped Classroom doesn’t necessarily require any special technology in the classroom – but it does require students to be able to consume digital learning content outside of class. One of the factors that propelled the iPad to the level of popularity it enjoys today is that it is a fantastic content consumption device, so it clearly lends itself to flipped learning. But there is so much more that the iPad can do, making it a powerful partner in the flipped classroom."

The Geography of Language

"Over the course of human history, thousands of languages have developed from what was once a much smaller number. How did we end up with so many? And how do we keep track of them all? Alex Gendler explains how linguists group languages into language families, demonstrating how these linguistic trees give us crucial insights into the past."
