Jérémy Pouilloux: "Transmedia Immersive University is a project that is taking transmedia to France’s universities; an initiative I launched last year.

Mobile: More Districts Are Rewriting Acceptable Use Policies

Mobile: More Districts Are Rewriting Acceptable Use Policies | networked media | Scoop.it
Spotlight covers the intersections of technology and education, going behind the research to show how digital media is used in and out of classrooms to expand learning.

 

“When I talk to colleagues in Finland, they say, how do you filter?” said Jim Klein, director of Information Services and Technology at the Saugus Union School District in Southern California.

 

“They say, our kids’ filters are in their heads.

 

You do this by giving them a safe environment to educate themselves instead of sticking your head in the sand and pretending these technologies don’t exist.”

Yes, I agree, time to tune in instead of tuning out, what we don't understand.
Dodie Ellen Ballard's curator insight, March 13, 2013 2:44 AM

While this seems to be a struggle for some educational institutions, the policies not only have to be re-written, but the re-write must embrace and not negate the use of technology.

Many thanks for sharing this, Robin! I couldn´t agree more with the prediction that 21st century education will definitely need "super e-coaches" with 3 characteristics (1) domain expertise, (2) a deep understanding of the Internet for learning and teaching purposes and (3) counselling skills. If we, as teachers, are able to perform this task, this, in turn, can also serve as a model for our students so they can develop themselves the necessary skills to integrate and make sense of the vast information available. Skills that they will certainly need for their future.

Thank you Mayra! Glad to be on the same wavelength!
