The 4 Levels Of Learning Analytics - Edudemic

The 4 Levels Of Learning Analytics - Edudemic | Library curating | Scoop.it
Using data to drive learning outcomes isn’t a new concept, really. For as long as teachers have been giving students assessments, the assessments and results have been used by both students and teachers (even if only loosely) to determine how to move forward. What needs to be reviewed more? What was covered/studied well? Learning analytics …

This Is What Happens In Social Media In A Day In 2013 [Infographic] | Library curating | Scoop.it

The progression of social networking has created some mind blowing statistics and metrics when it comes to what goes on within social media in a day.

 

This infographic, Social Media In A Day, contains statistics and metrics from 10 different popular social networking services, presented in a way that makes it easy to grab key statistics.

For example, on Facebook alone there are 2.7 billion (yes, billion) likes each day...

Google Alert A Great Tool to Help Student Researchers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning

Google Alert A Great Tool to Help Student Researchers ~ Educational Technology and Mobile Learning | Library curating | Scoop.it

"Google Alert allows you to create alerts around topics you are interested in and start receiving emails with updates about your search query. For instance as a doctoral student with a research interest in emerging literacies , I have created an alert with the name " emerging literacies" and each time something new published online with those key words in it I get an email with a link to it. This keeps me abreast of the latest releases in my area of research. I also use Google Alert to track down authors and scholars whose works are related to my research areas. I simply create a Google Alert with their names as the alert titles and next time they publish something I get it first. Another way to use Google Alert is to create an alert about yourself by using your full name and anytime somebody mentions you somewhere online you will instantly receive an email with a link to it."

This is a powerful claim: "...rethinking the library’s role is changing education at the Albemarle school". This story about innovations at Monticello High School library shows how the tracking of student and teacher interactions with the school library before and after infrastructure and program changes can be used to demonstrate impact. Receiving a state-based school board association award is also evidence of impact.

7 pillars of Digital Leadership in education

7 pillars of Digital Leadership in education | Library curating | Scoop.it

As schools change leadership must as well.

 

With society becoming more and more reliant on technology it is incumbent upon leaders to harness the power of digital technologies in order to create school cultures that are transparent, relevant, meaningful, engaging, and inspiring. In order to set the stage for increasing achievement and to establish a greater sense of community pride for the work being done in our schools, we must begin to change the way we lead. To do this, leaders must understand the origins of fear and misconceptions that often surround the use of technology such as social media and mobile devices.

 

Once the fears and misconceptions are placed on the table, leaders can begin to establish a vision for the effective use of technology to improve numerous facets of leadership. The challenge for school leaders is why, how, and where to begin. Digital leadership is not about flashy tools, but a strategic mindset that leverages available resources to improve what we do while anticipating the changes needed to cultivate a school culture focused on engagement and achievement. It is a new construct of leadership that grows out of the leader’s symbiotic relationship with technology.

The end result will be sustainable change in programs, instruction, behaviors, and leadership practices with technology as a pivotal element. Digital leadership requires a shift in leadership style from one of mandates, directives, and buy-in to one grounded in empowerment, support, and embracement as keys to sustainable change.

 

From my work I have identified what I call the Pillars of Digital Leadership. These are the specific areas embedded in the culture of all schools that can be improved or enhanced though the use of available technology, especially social media. They present a framework from which any educator or leader can begin to harness the power of technology to change professional practice and initiate sustainable change.
