June Rumiko Klein's curator insight, September 5, 2015 7:16 PM

In all new technology, a successful implementation in the organization is the key ingredient to success.  A poor implementation does not mean the technology doesn't work.  A systems approach, with many adjustments for why "something failed" or didn't in all cases, will help to fine tune implementations.  Root cause analysis is key to avoiding reacting only to symptoms.  To do this type of analysis during and after implementation requires resources and leadership at the top.

Julie Jackson's curator insight, September 28, 2015 8:36 PM

This is a very controversial issue within our school district between the district and parents.  I hope this article will help our parents and staff have a better understanding of what blended learning incorporates into the classroom.

Spaces for Learning

Spaces for Learning | New Culture of Education | Scoop.it

The design of any learning space must be guided by sound principles of learning and the spaces need to be matched to the pedagogy of those who will use them. The most amazing space will fail to enhance learning if it does not suit the needs of its users. There is a danger in hoping that new learning spaces will transform tired pedagogy; a belief that is not reflected by experience.

Do your surroundings affect your ability to learn?

Zina Alaswad's curator insight, October 1, 2015 10:45 AM

I know this is mostly interior design related. However, I can't help but think that similar standards should be applied to any learning space/ environment: "The most amazing space will fail to enhance learning if it does not suit the needs of its users" .... This quote really puts things in perspective for me. How can we as instructors and instructional designers make sure that the design of our learning spaces/ environments (virtual/ physical) is suitable and matching to needs, desires, and activities performed for the sake of learning? 

Anne TL's curator insight, March 31, 7:42 AM

Yes. There isn't much mention here of the growing space for learner autonomy,

Linda Buckmaster's curator insight, November 6, 2015 4:15 PM

 Dr. Reshan Richards discusses the use of Explain Everything & iPads to build a Qualitative Formative Assessment Toolkit.  He has recently written about the qualitative formative assessment toolkit (QFAT for short) which is something that has come out of his research on and practice with mobile devices, multimedia, and formative assessment. It is comprised of four media authoring approaches available on most smartphones, tablets, and laptops: making photos, taking screenshots, filming videos, and screencasting.

Each of these approaches allow teachers and learner to capture and create moments of learning, excerpts of understanding, and reflections of experience.

MindShift Guide to Digital Games and Learning | New Culture of Education | Scoop.it

The MindShift Guide to Digital Games and Learning started as a series of blog posts written by Jordan Shapiro with support from the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop and the Games and Learning Publishing Council. We’ve brought together what we felt would be the most relevant highlights of Jordan’s reporting to create a dynamic, in-depth guide that answers many of the most pressing questions that educators, parents, and life-long learners have raised around using digital games for learning.

The Challenges of Digital Leadership

The Challenges of Digital Leadership | New Culture of Education | Scoop.it
By far the most prevalent issue I see in schools struggling with their technology integration and implementation is the lack of a collective vision for how digital learning tools will be used to enhance learning. Schools often purchase software, computer devices, and technology-based learning systems because they are effective marketing tools for recruitment, or because they want to keep pace with the digital investments of rival institutions, or simply because they fear appearing outdated. None of these have to do with learning, of course, and inevitably are insufficient to smooth over the challenges that arise as digital tools enter classroom spaces.

 - As more districts across the United States move to 1:1 initiatives, a common barrier is financial resources, and a common temptation is to regard these initiatives as technology enterprises rather than instructional transformations. In a three-year pilot project, the Boulder Valley School District (BVSD) addressed these challenges by implementing a creative approach designed to entice public funders by providing all students with equitable access to digital devices.
