Maribel Obando Joven's curator insight, August 23, 1:34 PM
Nowadays, Technology is an essential part in people life and for that plays an important role in her personal and professional growth. It is the reason for what teachers need to include the use of it in their class lessons and have to be update with the different plataforms, tools, sites ,etc that we can find in the web and likewise install in our technological devices in order to help students in their learning process and facilitate the teaching process.
 I agree with what this article says "educational technologies are touching new heights" since I cosider that every day there are more online spaces which learners can use to develop their skills in various fields and proffesors can use as a mean to do students learnning more effective.

The calamity of the disappearing school libraries

The calamity of the disappearing school libraries | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it
From coast to coast, elementary and high school libraries are being neglected, defunded, repurposed, abandoned and closed.

The kindest thing that can be said about this is that it’s curious; the more accurate explanation is that it’s just wrong and very foolish.

A 2011 survey conducted with my graduate students of 25 separate statewide studies shows that students who attend schools with libraries that are staffed by certified librarians score better on reading and writing tests than students in schools without library services. And it is lower-income students who benefit the most.

Future classroom will be online, virtual – and taught by robots | Jisc

Future classroom will be online, virtual – and taught by robots | Jisc | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

Our new survey has revealed some surprising predictions for the classroom of the future for schools, universities and colleges alike.

The survey found that in five years’ time 20% of respondents believe that learning will be done through virtual reality, while a quarter think teaching will be delivered remotely by tutors who might be thousands of miles away.

Perhaps more surprisingly is the potential emergence of robots in the role of teacher or lecturer. When asked about whether they expect to see robots delivering lessons, 7% are confident that this will happen in the next five years, rising to 11% for ten years’ time. Almost a fifth (18%) think it will be reality in 20 years.

Other findings show the expectation of how tests will be delivered. 33% think that in five years, test will be taken in an app or virtual environment, with results immediately submitted, logged and ranked. 30% believe that technological advancements will mean that within five years new examination methods will be the norm, with students being allowed to take smart phones/devices into exams, to test their research skills.

With technology playing an increasing role in everyday lives, it follows that many respondents recognise the vital role of digital skills. 20% agree that knowing how to use technology will become just as important as traditional subjects like languages when it comes to getting a job in the next year. A further 34% believe this will happen within five years.

The survey canvassed the opinions of 1,000 people in the UK (aged 18 to over 65, and both in and out of education).

Why is teaching kids to draw not a more important part of the curriculum? | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

Drawing plays a big role in our cognitive development. It can help us learn to write and think creatively, develop hand-eye co-ordination, hone analytic skills, and conceptualise ideas.
But drawing is rarely used as a tool for learning in schools. Generally, most high school teachers aren’t trained in visual education.

Addressing Digital Inequality in Education

Addressing Digital Inequality in Education | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it
The thoughtful placement of technology in our education environments can greatly enhance the way students learn and educators teach. As we all know, it’s possible for students to partake in mobile and distance learning, to access a plethora of remote resources from anywhere on any device, and to extend learning beyond the classroom.

However, with any movement or shift towards digitization comes the creation of a digital divide. Not providing comparable access to all members of the community has severe consequences. Equitable access to resources, content, and experts is essential, especially when talking about the education of the future members of our society.

Once your kids can read easy books, start reading them hard ones

Once your kids can read easy books, start reading them hard ones | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

In the annals of great parenting moments, the one where the kids clamber onto the couch by themselves with their very own longish-book is an awesome one. They’ve mastered the de-coding, they’ve got the sounds, and they can follow a simple plot. Time to kick back and watch them lose themselves in literature, right?
Wrong.
Doug Lemov, author of Teach like a Champion and co-author of Reading Reconsidered argues that’s just the moment to read to them more—and to choose challenging texts, far above their reading level. He writes:
Yes, encourage your kids to practise decoding and fluency on accessible texts. But also realise that being read to from books that are more complex than they can read on their own prepares them for the gatekeeper task: understanding difficult ideas and complex texts.
There are multiple benefits to reading kids hard books, he argues. Some are obvious, like exposing them to more complex vocabulary. Some are less so, such as exposing them to more complicated sentences and more elaborate plot lines, which better prepares them for when they encounter those on their own further down the road.

What Schools Are Learning From the Rapid Rise and Fall of Pokémon Go

What Schools Are Learning From the Rapid Rise and Fall of Pokémon Go | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it
At the start of every school year, Diane Levin, an education professor at Boston’s Wheelock College who teaches a course called “Meaning and Development of Play,” has her students interview people of different ages about how they used to play when they were children. The results are not surprising: Every year, her students report that interview subjects over age 50 played outside all day in big groups of their peers, with a few toys (“maybe a ball”) and no adult supervision. People between the ages of 20 and 40, who grew up in the 1980s, ‘90s, and early 2000s, watched a lot of television but still played outside, often make-believe games inspired by TV shows and movies.

For young people today, however, it’s a different story. “They hardly play. If they do play it’s some TV script. Very prescribed,” Levin said. “Even if they have friends over, it’s often playing video games.”

An Open Letter to School Boards Everywhere

An Open Letter to School Boards Everywhere | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it
But with that said, there is one decision you should never consider making, and that is to get rid of your school librarian or library. School libraries and the certified school librarians who run them are essential,  never a luxury. They are vital parts of the school community and, with little fanfare, actively support that community’s growth. The presence of computers and maker spaces can not replace a certified school librarian installed in a library filled with books. Don’t be fooled by the latest edujargon or by some article that you read.
Don’t get me wrong. Maker spaces are amazing. They foster creativity, expression, exploration, design thinking, and so much more. The library is the perfect place for one. As Diana Rendina stated in her article “Advocating for Makerspaces in Libraries,” “While it might vary from one person to the next, most would agree that one of the main missions of the library has always been to make resources and materials accessible to all, regardless of socioeconomic status, intelligence, status (gifted, special education), gender, etc.
