     Here are the recorded keynote presentations from some important Education  thought leaders, during last week's Leadership Summit. Be sure to turn up your speakers.

     Many thanks to Steve Hargadon and Lucy Gray, for their instrumental organization of such a wonderful global collaboration!

     Spreading the word was easily accomplished using social media, such as: Twitter, Google, and LinkedIn.

Teaching ‘screenagers’ – how the digital world is changing learners

Teaching ‘screenagers’ – how the digital world is changing learners | Social Media: Changing Our World of Education | Scoop.it

If we really want our education systems to prepare students for tomorrow’s digital world, we should worry less about formats and instead focus on what to teach – or what not to teach. A few obvious candidates for omission would be spelling (thanks to spellcheckers), facts (available instantly and everywhere via the internet), and handwriting (who writes by hand these days?). Instead, why not teach them how to filter reliable from unreliable information, an essential skill for the Google generation? Or even how to see through misleading headlines?Do you agree or disagree??
