You can drag a horse to water. However, most teachers make no effort to upgrade their skills beyond getting the certificate that makes them what they are. Teachers have to be on fire and motivated to present the best version of themselves.

8 Essential Productivity Tips for Instructional Designers

8 Essential Productivity Tips for Instructional Designers | Lifelong learning | Scoop.it

"I used to think it was cool to be messy. I was impressed by people who were disorganised but still managed to get the job done. It wasn’t until I realised that my creative brain was already a mess and that I needed to maintain some degree of organisation to allow me the breathing room to get creative. Fast forward 10 years and it turns out that I’m a bit of a geek when it comes to productivity."

The 21st century is challenging old notions of learning spaces

The 21st century is challenging old notions of learning spaces | Lifelong learning | Scoop.it

Classrooms should be spaces that students don’t want to leave.  Some communities are still hesitant about these futuristic looking learning spaces and have resorted to older, traditional physical spaces. Hopefully, they will begin to embrace changes to better prepare students and move them in the 21st century global economy.

While I do not ascribe to everything mentioned in this post, there is much to commend it.

Schools and the learning spaces within them should be engaging and attractive places for children in which to learn. Outside of their home, school is where they spend a significant portion of their lives.

As a school, you can 'try' a free account which will allow you to add 20 students - costs for upgrading are not given on site.  Pending costs, the tool looks like a fantastic way to manage student progress.  Acting a little like a Wiki, it allows you to share, communicate and encourage collaboration within a class group.

Is Content Curation in Your Skill Set? It Should Be. | Lifelong learning | Scoop.it

Curation is a growing need in organizations, and as such, a growing competency for those focused on worker performance. At the same time, the vision of what this competency looks like in practice is cloudy. How will what we do look different when we add curation to our skill sets?

Sure it is!!  Last week I showed my students how to scoopit.  I thought that since they seem to love Facebook, Scoopit was going to be a wow experience for them.  However, contrary to my expectations most of them did not show a real interest, or at least the kind of interest I expected.  What a pain!  Maybe it is a matter of time, culture, love for reading and writing, etc.  From a group of 12 youngers, only 2 of them said:  Thanks teacher, I like it!  Well... I will keep on trying...

I think this kind of tool can be really beneficial for creating flipped learning or video orientated learning as the speaker can guide learners to various learning resources on the web.
