Top 10 EduBlogs All Online Teachers Must Follow

Top 10 EduBlogs All Online Teachers Must Follow | Learning & Knowledge for the Future - www.akisifala.org | Scoop.it

Here’s a list of blogs that feed my teaching soul, hunger for knowledge, and need for deeper insights into teaching,  learning and writing. There are so many wonderful blogs that it’s impossible to list them all here,  so I’m listing the ones that have been most relevant to my own professional development. As such, they should be relevant to any teacher who wants to turn online teaching and/or publishing into a fully-fledged career.

I am making my way through these but am excited about the content I am finding here. What did educators ever do with all this wisdom before we had the place to make it heard? How wondrous that we can each become an expert and a motivator in our field!

The Persistent Appeal of Technology in Learning

The Persistent Appeal of Technology in Learning | Learning & Knowledge for the Future - www.akisifala.org | Scoop.it

The technology they use in their personal lives just makes sense for use in their learning as well. If a student badly wanted a new tablet or app for his or her own personal use but wanted nothing to do with it for any kind of learning whatsoever, we may need to look at the disconnect.

But there are other reasons why education consistently turns to technology

I like the emphasis on connections---making connections among curricular disciplines and technology uses.

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool

Why Scoopit Is Becoming An Indispensable Learning Tool | Learning & Knowledge for the Future - www.akisifala.org | Scoop.it

Curation is a valuable skill for today’s learner. In a culture of content overload, members that provide great content to their audience will be recognized leaders in network communities. Optimally, we equip students to differentiate good content from bad in preparation for their further education and careers. Curating an online topic (and allowing comments) also increases self-awareness and provides additional insight from others. The nuances of sharing content and writing to an audience become much better understood through interactivity between the curator and participating audience.

I completely agree with this post. I fully integrated it into one of my courses last year. Students had to choose a potential future career and create a scoop.it page to help them learn about that field. Most feedback was positive. A few students still use it seven months after the grades have been turned in!

I am a big fan of Scoop.it.  It adds value to my professional career.  I find so many things that I am interested in.  It is fun for me to try to understand the algorythm. I believe that curation will be a powerful tool for our future.

I'm still learning and experimenting with available technologies - infographics is a valuable visual tool. However, as with all new "technologies" that we encounter, I believe the phrase "appropriate technology" should also be our guide for digital tech and social media choices.

Why online education is mostly a fantasy

Why online education is mostly a fantasy | Learning & Knowledge for the Future - www.akisifala.org | Scoop.it

In the end, MOOCs and online programs primarily help those who are self motivated to learn, and the vast majority of these people would have figured out how to educate themselves, whether in college or on their own, regardless of whether or not online courses are available.

Jason R Levine's comment, May 3, 2013 1:21 PM
There need not be a dichotomy of online learning and having the personalized attention of a teacher/coach. This article, and others like it, are misguided if their point is that online education will forever remain a fantasy; they are valuable articles in that they correctly note what's limiting and/or dysfunctional now to set us on course to the new "reality" of online and blended learning being superior to traditional "brick and mortar" education.

Free Technology for Teachers: Five Essential Google Drive Skills For Teachers

Free Technology for Teachers: Five Essential Google Drive Skills For Teachers | Learning & Knowledge for the Future - www.akisifala.org | Scoop.it

"This school year I've worked with a few school districts that are using Google Apps for Education for the first time. A lot of what I have done with those school districts is help to get the teachers acclimated to using Google Drive. When I sat down to plan an upcoming Google Drive training session I thought about some of the essential Google Drive skills that teachers need in addition to creating documents, presentations, and spreadsheets. Here are five essential Google Drive skills I think teachers need."
