13 Reasons Teachers Should Use Diigo | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

Diigo stands for “Digest of Internet Information, Groups and Other stuff.” It is a social bookmarking program that allows you to save your ‘favorites’ online, so that they can be accessible from any computer with an internet connection. However, Diigo does much more than this.

Seven Digital Learning Tips for Students | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

The good news is that succeeding in an online environment isn’t so different than succeeding in a traditional classroom. OK, sure, there’s the time and distance and technological wall that can separate online learners.

3 Ways the Internet Is Changing Education Right Now | Edudemic | Reflections on Learning | Scoop.it

With all these changes happening so fast, it is hard to say where the internet will take education next. What is likely is that the changes listed above will continue to spread and become more dramatic. One day school education and on the job training may be completely unrecognizable from where they are today. So as the internet continues to make education more available, cheaper, and better, the best we can do is try and keep up and make sure we are taking the best advantage of these advancements as they occur.
