Mapping the future: The future of education | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it
How do we best educate the students of tomorrow? What we teach our children - and how we teach them - will impact almost every aspect of society, from the quality of healthcare to industrial output; technological advances to financial services. Our Global Agenda Council experts join the debate to offer various visions of how education may evolve, and how governments, educators, employers and students will need to adapt to keep pace with the bewildering array of possibilities that will shape all of our futures.

Improving Schools Through Design Thinking - Edutopia

Improving Schools Through Design Thinking - Edutopia | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it
Design thinking is a human-centered approach to problem solving that begins with developing empathy for those facing a particular challenge. It serves as a framework that helps to define problems, empathize with others, develop prototypes of possible solutions, and hone those prototypes through multiple iterations until they have generated a viable solution to the challenge at hand. Design thinking encourages a bias toward action and, because of its reliance on rapid prototyping, frees practitioners to embrace the notion of failing forward because it's OK to make mistakes -- that's where breakthrough ideas are born.

While a growing number of schools around the world are using design thinking in classrooms and empowering students to solve authentic challenges as part of an inquiry-based curriculum, this powerful process can also be used to improve the overall school experience. Many successful businesses embrace design thinking to improve their products and enhance their customers' experiences to great effect. Why, then, would we not do the same with our schools? As a school administrator, I've seen design thinking effectively used to improve daily operations as well as enhance both the in-class and out-of-class experiences for teachers, students, and parents.

Publishing as Pedagogy: Connecting Library Services and Technology

Publishing as Pedagogy: Connecting Library Services and Technology | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it
Key Takeaways
Libraries increasingly offer the technological capacity and staff expertise to support student publishing, but this activity tends to happen in isolation from other library activities.
Harnessing publishing as a pedagogical tool improves student learning outcomes through high-impact learning practices: extensive writing, teamwork, service learning, undergraduate research, and experiential learning.
Partnering with students to achieve their publishing ambitions clarifies the requirements that the next generation of digital scholars may have for library technology infrastructure designed for preservation and access.
The University of Michigan Library connects scholarly communication and instruction by focusing on publishing as pedagogy, as illustrated in three case studies.

How to Incubate Creativity in School Through Making and Discovery - Mind/Shift #makered

How to Incubate Creativity in School Through Making and Discovery - Mind/Shift #makered | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it
Math teacher Laura Kretschmar gave students a rubric with specific goals around collaboration, communication and instructions to use various functions in the program, but not a lot else. She’s intentionally giving them a lot of freedom to play with the program, create cool designs and figure out what the functions do.

“I think “y” means, like, going up,” says Juritzy Maldonado. “So to pull it up, I’m going to try to change the number.” She punches in 200 for “y” and watches the image she’s creating shift upward. Another group discovers that if they hit “repeat” multiple times, they can create a parachute-like design that they’ve figured out how to color in various ways. That wasn’t their original plan, but they’re running with it now.

Today we spent sometime going through our archive looking for special needs apps we have shared here in the past and ended up with the chart below. These are apps we would recommend for teachers and parents of kids with learning disabilities. We have arranged the apps into four main categories: apps for dyslexic learners, apps for autistic learners, apps for the visually impaired and apps for learners with writing difficulties.  For those of you using Android a similar list will soon be posted. Stay tuned.

Education Week

Education Week | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

If you're anything like me you get on Twitter, Facebook, or other social networking platforms and your education geek friends start listing books that you need to read. It seems as though there are new education books that come out every day ... and that's probably due to the fact that new education books come out every day.

Besides writing this blog for Education Week and running presentations and giving keynotes, I do a lot of work behind the scenes in publishing. With Ariel Bartlett and Arnis Burvikovs, we created theConnected Educators Series for Corwin Press which turned out 21 short-form practical books for teachers and leaders, and we are working on a new leadership series now.

And, if I don't read enough through editing the books in the book series, I'm a reviewer of manuscripts for a couple of publishers. Over time what I have noticed is that the books with the big publishing machines get a lot of notice ... as most of them should, while other books that come from smaller publishers don't often as much publicity. So, I thought I would help out a bit by providing a list of some books, both big and small, that I think educators should know about.

What often happens with lists like this is that some books are forgotten, and commenters leave rather nasty comments about books that I should have listed but didn't. First and foremost I apologize if I left off your favorite education book, and please feel free to leave the title in the comment section. Just to be fair, I didn't put my own books in this list, so before you get angry at me for leaving off your favorite, please know I didn't even include mine! All of the books were published in 2015 or early 2016.

If you have the time in your busy days ahead in 2016, you should consider reading some of these books because they are worth the time it takes to read them. I promise that you will need to take notes on your laptop, in your notebook, or on the book itself, because these books will inspire you to think differently.
