Learning To Learn | Office Hours

Learning To Learn | Office Hours | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

Michael Stephens “BEING ADAPTABLE IN A FLAT world, knowing how to ‘learn how to learn,’ will be one of the most important assets any worker can have, because job churn will come faster, because innovation will happen faster,” writes Thomas Friedman in The World Is Flat. I’ve invoked this “learn to learn” mantra before, but recent shifts in the opportunities for librarians and library staff to learn have brought me back to it.

BYOD in Schools: Bridging or Expanding the Digital Divide?

BYOD in Schools: Bridging or Expanding the Digital Divide? | Libraries and education futures | Scoop.it

Bring your own device (BYOD) is one of the fastest-growing trends in the enterprise and higher ed for a variety of reasons. For example, companies with a limited IT budget sometimes use BYOD to leverage the productivity benefits of the latest and greatest smartphones and tablets without having to buy them. In that sense, BYOD democratizes mobile technologies by making them available to more organizations. It is not without its challenges, however, as any on-site tech manager will attest.

A must read. Gathers a wide scope of concepts and ideas about educational and technology literacy.

Debbie Elicksen 's curator insight, June 13, 2013 1:42 PM

It's probably safe to say that North American institutions are producing students who are over 90% technologically (Internet) illiterate.

Good article to share with your teachers who are looking to improve student research skills to meet standards.

Maria Persson's comment, June 17, 2013 11:00 PM
If this happens in the early years of learning it will not be such an issue at the tertiary level where plagiarism is still a real problem!
Maria Persson's curator insight, June 17, 2013 11:07 PM

A number of great points that are both practical and theoritical in terms of how to assist students' understanding of digital literacy skills, preparing them for the future, increasing their understanding of what the future might bring!

Moushira Issa's curator insight, June 16, 2013 5:04 PM

Get recognition for learning that happens anywhere. Then share it in the places that matter.

Paula Iaeger PhD's comment, June 18, 2013 9:43 AM
This is one application of badges that cross generations and circumstances. When workers are offered recognition for the training they receive, there is a desire to know more. A simple certificate might help but a digital badge for its transportability is much better. In a classroom grades of course have their place but what I like is that the natural curiosity is rewarded when a badge is voluntarily pursued. Badges celebrate extra effort, not mediocrity and a just-get-by mentality.
