Constructing categories for educational technology professionals - About Education Degrees

Constructing categories for educational technology professionals - About Education Degrees | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

This literature review highlights the tension between cohesiveness and incoherence in operationalizing categories of educational technology professionals. Literature on learning technologists, educational technologists, e-learning technologists, information and communications technology coordinators and information technology coordinators was analyzed through a multilevel model of comparative education to address to what degree these educational technology professionals are similar units of analysis.

Finding and Recovering From Google Penalties

Finding and Recovering From Google Penalties | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Many website or blog owners felt the penalties imposed by changes in Google's algorithm – a sudden fall in page rank and a massive drop in traffic early in 2011, and/or a further one in the first quarter of 2012, and subsequent to each of these major declines, many fluctuations in their web traffic.

 

This post is about how to find the specific causes of these drops in traffic and how to go about recovering from Google penalties.

Another great way to learn during summer:  get a few teachers together and chose a book to read.  Create a blog to share insights.  This could help reinforce technology skills and allow more to participate as they sit at the pool or take care of children.  This might be something that could continue into the school year.

Some of these programs are differentiated by age range, e.g., early childhood, elementary, secondary, post-secondary and adult education. Others are differentiated by topic, e.g., special education, educational administration, and TESOL. This page has more details of the programs and where they can be taken …

Memorizers are the lowest achievers and other Common Core math surprises - The Hechinger Report

Memorizers are the lowest achievers and other Common Core math surprises - The Hechinger Report | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

"It’s time to debunk the myths about who is good in math, and Common Core state standards move us toward this worthy goal. Mathematics and technology leaders support the standards because they are rooted in the new brain and learning sciences.


All children are different in their thinking, strength and interests. Mathematics classes of the past decade have valued one type of math learner, one who can memorize well and calculate fast.


Yet data from the 13 million students who took PISA tests showed that the lowest achieving students worldwide were those who used a memorization strategy – those who thought of math as a set of methods to remember and who approached math by trying to memorize steps. The highest achieving students were those who thought of math as a set of connected, big ideas."

this is on point. in today's generation school has become a chore, not because it is boring or uninteresting (and it is) but because that is how we were raised to think. school is supposed to "suck" and we are supposed to hate it with a fiery passion. but if we could integrate the [arts kids love about school into the subjects we don't  believe that kids could learn to be excited about Knowledge and the expanse if possibility it holds.

Curriculum comes from currere which has to do with repeatedly running the course and autobiography implying complex conversations. These happen in School and outside.

What Will Education Look Like in a More Open Future? - About Education Degrees

What Will Education Look Like in a More Open Future? - About Education Degrees | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

In his MindShift article, David Price (author of OPEN: How We’ll Work, Live And Learn In The Future) considers what open learning systems – as productivity and innovation drivers – would look like for educators:

Open learning systems apply the same learning principles to their professionals as they do to their students. They understand that the only sustainable transformation in education has to be owned by the people who have to implement it: teachers. They have high expectations of the profession’s capacity to learn through transparent, shared practice, and of their ability to rise to additional responsibilities. They have the humility to accept that learning now happens everywhere, anytime, and they work hard to integrate informal learning into the formal environment.

Five Big Changes to the Future of Teacher Education

Five Big Changes to the Future of Teacher Education | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

Getty In the book Teaching 2030 by Barnett Berry and 12 classroom experts, the authors pinpoint specific skills educators will need to teach in the schools of tomorrow.

 

They say teachers must be prepared to find and adapt new technologies to engage the digital generation, as well as work across traditional subject areas using project learning.

 

They must be able to use data and evidence to inform their practice and know how to work in both virtual learning environments and brick-and-mortar schools. And they’ll need to collaborate with community-based organizations and work in schools that provide all kinds of other services for students and their families.

 

Along those lines, Berry has outlined five changes he believes need to be made to the future of teacher education.

What Australian slang has given the world

What Australian slang has given the world | Studying Teaching and Learning | Scoop.it

“G’day Mate. Put another shrimp on the barbie”.

Australia is as well-known for its unique turns of phrase as it is for its ubiquitous meat pie. But few realise how many terms in use around the world originated down under, writes Mark Gwynn for BBC Culture:

"In 2013, ‘selfie’ became Oxford Dictionaries’ word of the year. It’s become such a ubiquitous word, but few stop to think about where it came from. It may come as a surprise to learn that is has its origins in Australia: the first evidence of the word in use comes from an online forum entry by the Australian Nathan Hope, who posted a photo of his lip, which he says he cut while drinking at a mate’s 21st birthday party."

Caitlyn Christiansen's curator insight, May 26, 10:35 AM

The world is extremely diverse in its spread of native languages. Yet only a handful are commonly spoken by the majority of the world, about 2/3. Over half of the world's languages are expected to go extinct because of the extreme diversity and the minimal distribution which means that in some places almost every person speaks a completely different language and many are dying as their last speakers do not pass it on to their children.

 

This article is relates to cultural patterns and processes through the geographic spread of languages around the globe and the increasing acculturation that causes the loss of many of these languages in our increasingly globalized world.

Michael Amberg's curator insight, May 26, 10:35 PM

Its interesting to see just how many people speak the languages we speak everyday, and to see just how many people DONT speak it.
