Teaching Critical Thinking in Age of Digital Credulity | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

Now, the enormity, ubiquity and dubious credibility of the information available to most of the world’s population is requiring each of us to become something of an expert on figuring out when we’re being misled or lied to.

Technology in education: if students aren't worried, why are teachers? | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

I couldn't agree more. As teachers, our role must change to one that enables, guides, personalises and embraces digital technology as a fundamental part of student learning. The most dangerous thing we can do to our students is to keep doing what our teachers and professors did to us:

Does Tech Hold Back Educators?

Does Tech Hold Back Educators? | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

Teaching is not easy. It is a profession that requires educators to be relevant. Being relevant doesn’t come with age. Just the opposite occurs, and it requires work to keep up. Teaching is not a profession that enables one to stop learning after the degree is earned and the job is secured. Technology is moving us all too fast for anyone to sit back relying on old methods and tools.

It Sure Is Complicated: Teen Life in the Digital Age | MiddleWeb

It Sure Is Complicated: Teen Life in the Digital Age | MiddleWeb | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

As parent of two teenagers and as a teacher of pre-teens, I took away a lot of information from It’s Complicated. First and foremost is the idea that young people have less and less access to public spaces and time in which to socialize with friends and peers. The days of our moms and dads kicking us outdoors in the morning and saying, “Don’t come back until dinner time” are over.

50 Great Books For Teachers - Edudemic | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it
If you’re a teacher, you probably don’t have oodles of free time on your hands (unless you’ve thrown lesson planning and grading your students’ work out the window!), but when you do, a good book recommendation is almost always welcome (trumped only by a good wine/beer/food recommendation!).
