Personalize Learning: 10 Predictions for Personalized Learning for 2013

Personalize Learning: 10 Predictions for Personalized Learning for 2013 | #LearningCommons | Scoop.it

Teachers and learners of all ages are connecting more than ever. In 2013, we will see teachers expanding their Personal Learning Networks (PLN) using social media. They will be telling more stories and sharing their journeys as they personalize learning. Learners will be using mobile devices for learning in and out of school. We will be seeing learners involved in more global collaborative projects in 2013.

John McDermott Neill's curator insight, February 6, 2013 11:26 PM

The future outlined here would seem to be achievable but can students really be trusted to "own" their learning?

Arlene Salyards's curator insight, February 14, 2013 5:26 PM

I like this statement "It is time to bring back inquiry and encourage questions that have no right answers."

EDUCTO's curator insight, August 6, 2013 7:59 PM

We're halfway through the year, how well did we do on these predictions so far?

K-12 blended learning primer

Andy Lee's curator insight, November 9, 2013 12:36 PM

Nice infographic on blended learning.

David Bozetarnik's curator insight, April 30, 11:35 PM

Blended learning has much potential.  However, it is only PART of the solution to why ails education today.  It is not a replacement for funding.  Adequate funding, whether online of f2f, must go hand in hand.  You can't maximize the potential of education while cutting necessary $$$.

10 Amazing Social Media Statistics [INFOGRAPHIC]

10 Amazing Social Media Statistics [INFOGRAPHIC] | #LearningCommons | Scoop.it

Did you know that Twitter is grabbing more new registrations than Facebook, with more than half of its entire userbase compromised of people who have signed up in the last year, compared to just 19 percent for Mark Zuckerberg’s baby?

What if I said that almost a quarter (23 percent) of Facebook users check their account five or more times each day, Twitter users are 33 percent more likely to be Democrats or – sorry Foursquare – that 74 percent of Americans are unfamiliar with the concept of ‘checking in’.

 

These, and several other amazing social media statistics, can be found in the infographic on social media statistics.
