"Professor Mitra is a Physicist and teaches Educational Technology at Newcastle University. Some years ago he had a revolutionary idea: “The Hole in the wall”. He installed computers in the streets of the slums of India and observed that children organize by themselves and learn naturally. So have we all a teacher’s soul inside us?''

Shared online videos have become quite popular. These streamed videos are so pervasive that 69% of Internet users and 52% of adults in the United States have watched or downloaded videos online (Purcell, 2010). It was predicted that videos would represent 50% of total data transfers on the Internet by 2012 (Madden, 2007). These statistics leave little doubt as to the rising importance of shared online videos for educational purposes.

Se você perguntar a um aluno o que o torna bem sucedido na escola, provavelmente você não ouvirá sobre de algum livro fantástico novo ou série de palestras . Muito provavelmente você vai ouvir algo como: "Foi tudo o Sr. Jones. Ele simplesmente nunca desistiu de mim. "
O que os alunos tiram de uma educação bem-sucedida, geralmente vem de uma ligação pessoal com um professor que incutiu a paixão e inspiração por determinada aprendizagem.

How Technology Can Change Assessment

How Technology Can Change Assessment | Look Ahead | Scoop.it

Many discussions of technology-based assessments concentrate on automating current methods of testing to save time and cost. However, technology also changes what educators can assess, how and when to assess it, and for what purpose. Assessments can be embedded in ICTs, and have the potential to measure learning processes, in addition to end-of-lesson knowledge.

First, successful change leaders clearly articulate the need for change to a variety of audiences in ===> ways that are intellectually coherent and emotionally compelling. <===

 

The ability to do this requires that change leaders immerse themselves into radically different worlds.

 

          ===> AND they need to have a lot of courage as well! <===
