Blended learning: The great new thing or the great new hype?

Blended learning: The great new thing or the great new hype? | School Librarian In Action @ Scoop It! | Scoop.it
If done right, blended learning can be used to support more equitable access to learning resources and discipline-specific expertise. It may also engage students (and teachers) in a variety of online and offline learning activities that differentiate instruction and bring greater diversity to the learning context.

Zarah Gagatiga's insight:

Yes. Important to remember that blended learning isn't a pedagogy, its just a term to describe the point of contact with learning.

A Teacher’s Guide to Wikipedia

A Teacher’s Guide to Wikipedia | School Librarian In Action @ Scoop It! | Scoop.it
Wikipedia is often vilified in educational circles. The site’s loudest critics think that it offers biased, non-credible information. Many teachers specifically ban students from using the site from as a reference in research papers.

Jennie Tuvey's curator insight, Today, 12:55 AM

My primary kids always go straight for Wikipedia - I always encourage it as a starting point if they want to. Because it is a great starting point when you are young and are just beginning to learn the ways of the abundance of information available. I believe it is also a great tool to start their critical thinking without them even realising!

Virtual Debate: 7 Advantages of Online Discussions

Virtual Debate: 7 Advantages of Online Discussions | School Librarian In Action @ Scoop It! | Scoop.it

How to facilitate such discussions is confusing to many teachers, and online discussion threads and chatrooms may be seen as a poor substitute for the “real” thing, an evil necessity of the online class. However, although there are some barriers such as its more decontextualized nature, in comparison to face-to-face discussion, there are advantages that are unique to the online discussion that can be built on by the instructor while the drawbacks are minimized.

5 Surprising Changes in Horizon's 2015 Report on the Future of K–12 Tech

5 Surprising Changes in Horizon's 2015 Report on the Future of K–12 Tech | School Librarian In Action @ Scoop It! | Scoop.it

This year's list provided more than a few surprises, with new additions to the list, along with several technologies and strategies that dropped off completely.

Zarah Gagatiga's insight:

I'm not really sure how surprising these are to you. Number 5 would be a nice one though if that really happens over the next couple of years. I also think that number 1 may be wrong as I've seen a lot of adoption of gamification and a it can work really well.

Norton Gusky's curator insight, July 30, 7:36 AM

While the report drops "Gaming" I'm seeing a real growth in this area. The Internet of Things is a bit too abstract, but with projects underway at Carnegie Mellon and elsewhere this might regain some momentum. Maker Spaces have definitely gained K-12 attention. Badging is still something that seems to work best for the out-of-school world, but in the next few years there may be growth in this trend.

Technology can transform education, but not without people

Technology can transform education, but not without people | School Librarian In Action @ Scoop It! | Scoop.it
Five years ago I was trying every new tech tool to come out. I was glogging with glogster. I was threading with voice thread. And I sure was writing and editing in real-time with Google Docs! But the technology was not transforming me. It was not transforming my classroom, because it was just technology.

Excellent resum del paper dels mestres i /o educador en la transformació de l'educació provocada per les tecnologies. Els educadors com a "connectors", "constructors", i cultivadors!!! Article molt empoderant per nedar dins el caos de les eines!
