" You can’t swing an iPad in the hallway without hitting someone talking about becoming a 21st century teacher, 21st century student, or something involving the 21st century. While I personally am quite over that term, it fits and makes sense.
Dr. Debra Harper, Ed.D.'s insight:

21st century education is more about staying current & consistent about life-long learning pursuits.

The Future of Education

The Future of Education | Learning in the Age of Information | Scoop.it
The Future of Education is a social network

Via Rob Hatfield, M.Ed.
Dr. Debra Harper, Ed.D.'s insight:

This social network site appears  to be a good resource for staying current on tech trends & issues. As more tech tools are created, educators often face challenges in keeping pace with tech developments.  The Future of Education offers an interview,discussion format presented in video/audio format.   In order to obtain information, interested persons must submit a membership application.  Although many of the topics listed on the home page can easily be accessed using Google, but having resources accessible through one site may offer convenience some may want.  The key benefit is the opportunity to interact with others interested in common tech topics.

How Is Media Affecting Kids?

How Is Media Affecting Kids? | Learning in the Age of Information | Scoop.it
The effect of media and technology on children 8 and under in the US

Via Carisa Kluver, Terry Doherty
Dr. Debra Harper, Ed.D.'s insight:

No matter what life activity or event, our children need to be taught how to balance & (many times) separate work from play.  Too much of one over the other affects our ability as humans to  learn those things necessary to promote healthy relationships with others.

Amazing how the eye is quickly drawn to some of the bigger numbers ... like 70% next to a television remote!
Terry Doherty's curator insight, June 4, 2013 2:02 PM

I find this one a bit chilling. The numbers - particularly when you look at the teacher's perspective - really hit home about balancing that media diet with things that have no plugs or screens. Books, chalk, paint, music ... all those things are media too!

Meryl Jaffe, PhD's curator insight, June 4, 2013 4:28 PM

Thank you for this frightening but powerful data.

Surveillance Cameras Gain Ground in Schools

Surveillance Cameras Gain Ground in Schools | Learning in the Age of Information | Scoop.it
Better technology and high-profile school violence are driving renewed interest, but the trend also draws criticism.

Via Maria Lopez Alvarado, MBA
Dr. Debra Harper, Ed.D.'s insight:

Individual 4th amendment privacy rights are the main challenge to the use of surveillance cameras in schools.  Stratigic planning in relationship to the placement of cameras may relieve some fears connected to concerns over individual privacy rights.  Private behavior is usually not conducted in public areas so if cameras avoid more private areas privacy rights would be protected.  It is obvious that providing better protection for students should be a priority.  As government officials race to implement legislation that upgrades public school safety, investigations into whether mental health concerns are addressed in any of these legislative actions.
