"In order to manage the deluge of data produced by modern technology, a rapidly changing society, and challenging environmental and economic systems, we need to relearn what we understand as social and scientific literacy. The students of today and the innovators of tomorrow will speak languages we barely recognize today. What are the fundamentals of these new literacies, how do we learn them and teach them, and how do they redefine innovation in the future? In this talk Stephen Downes describes a future in which learning is a creative act and the environments and technologies that will be needed to support this learning..."

eduClipper: The Pinterest of Education | Leave Those Kids Alone! | Scoop.it
Pinterest revolutionized the way we keep track of the gems that we find on the Internet, with categories of interest ranging from home decorating to cooking.

While it hosts a wealth of educational resources, wouldn’t it be nice for educators to have a similar site tailored solely to educational purposes?

Such a site exists! It’s called eduClipper, a virtual pin board designed specifically for education. It is, hands down, the latest and greatest innovation in education.

Education And Learning Curation: Discover Thousands Video Lessons From Best Teachers With Knowmia

Education And Learning Curation: Discover Thousands Video Lessons From Best Teachers With Knowmia | Leave Those Kids Alone! | Scoop.it

Giuseppe Mauriello: Knowmia is new San Francisco-based startup that offers a video lesson platform for teachers and students.

Knowmia are building the largest marketplace for short-form video educational content and the tools for teachers to create and publish outstanding content.

 

 

From "About Us" on official website:

"Knowmia is a destination for learning that features short video lessons from great teachers everywhere. We help you to find what you need to succeed in school in a personal, affordable, and time-efficient way. By bringing together a wide range of video lessons and making it easy to find what you need, we help you with challenging topics, prepare you for an upcoming test or new course, and find the right teacher for your style of learning..."

 

From review article on GigaOM:

"At launch, the site includes about 7,000 videos in a broad range of subject areas, from geometry and algebra to chemistry and physics to world history and American literature. The videos, which are about one to ten minutes long, have been mostly culled from YouTube and Vimeo and then reviewed by teachers working with Knowmia to provide editorial notes, create relevant quizzes and tag content according to subject, topic and skill.

 

Going forward, Knowmia will encourage teachers, as well as public and nonprofit groups, to add more videos. As the site grows, the plan is that the initial videos and tags will provide the foundation for additional notes and teacher-provided tags, which help teachers and students discover content.

 

The idea is that if students (mostly high school, for now) need extra help in a certain subject, say algebra, they can just go to the site, search for “quadratic equation” and instantly choose from a handful of short videos on the topic.

 

Knowmia’s focus on providing curation and structure, as well as sophisticated tools for teachers, will help distinguish it from other online platforms...."

Teachers Easy Guide to Social Learning

Teachers Easy Guide to Social Learning | Leave Those Kids Alone! | Scoop.it

"For learning to be successful it has to have a social ingredient in it. This social ingredient requires observation, attention and interaction. Students tend to learn better when they use their observational skills attentively. Thankfully, the new emerging technology provides these requirements and the onus is on the teacher to show students how to use and leverage such technology in their learning."

"Project RED, an ed-tech research and advocacy group that has been studying how technology can help re-engineer the education system, has created a new online community for school technology decision makers that includes access to its research findings... Project RED a few years ago launched a national research study of 2,000 schools, examining each school’s technology program. The group’s findings suggested that—when implemented effectively—technology can provide a significant return on investment (ROI) and help raise achievement."
