Pim loopt tegen beperkingen aan, maar krijgt weer perspectief: 'Zie je wel, er is straks ook een echte school voor mij' - hetkind | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it
Pim loopt in de klas - groep 7 - steeds vaker tegen zijn eigen beperkingen en grenzen aan. Hij is zwaar dyslectisch. Er wordt op de Cocon in Alkmaar gezocht naar uitdagende leeractiviteiten, maar zijn leesachterstand frustreert hem ook zelf behoorlijk.Vanmorgen ziet Pim er anders uit dan anders. Met een open blik en lachende ogen kijkt hij naar Karin Donkers, de schoolleider. Haar blog over een leerling, die weer perspectief krijgt. 'Zie je wel Karin, er is straks ook een echte school voor mij.'

3D Printers Cheaper, Getting More Use in Schools, Libraries - Breaking news around the world | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it
When people think of 3D printing, many think of a new technology that is out of reach and too complicated to use even if they had access to it. However, the buying trends of 3D printers, particularly among schools and libraries, show that isn’t true.

And schools/college buildings may not be needed in the future as well?

Leonard Waks's curator insight, December 9, 7:30 PM

Predictions from the World Innovation Summit for Education’s global survey: books and teachers will sharply decline in importance.


"Only a third (of those surveyed) said school buildings would be the primary source of knowledge and within those walls three quarters said the role of teachers would shift from lecturing to guiding students along their own learning paths." 


This is the same idea advanced in my book Education 2.0. Except that I expect these changes long before 2030.

Kym Reinstadler, SCN Feature Writer's curator insight, November 11, 11:55 PM

Stellar piece on the underground practice of ghostwriting college papers -- written by someone who made a very good living doing it. I don’t consider myself a ghostwriter, but I have helped some scholars who aren’t native English speakers improve their doctoral dissertations. It can be tough going. Some students I’ve worked with didn’t get a strong background in grammar even in their native language. There are things about English that throw them for a loop. It takes a lot of coaching. And it’s real work, people.

November 2014: Literacies for the digital age: Media literacy – DEN Blog Network | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it
WHAT IS MEDIA LITERACY?

There are many areas of media literacy.  Media Literacy Project has a wonderful document that presents the components of media literacy in a straightforward fashion and includes useful lists of the various concepts of this literacy. Their definition of media literacy is “the ability to access, analyze, evaluate and create media messages of all kinds.” They go on to state that media literacy skills can help students–

Understand how media messages create meaning
Identify who created a particular media message
Recognize what the media maker wants us to believe or do
Name the “tools of persuasion” used
Recognize bias, spin, misinformation and lies
Discover the part of the story that’s not being told
Evaluate media messages based on our own experiences, beliefs and values
Create and distribute our own media messages
Become advocates for change in our media system
