This issue tends to polarize teachers and parents, but I believe we can have both.

Curriculum. ALWAYS.

CTD Institute's curator insight, February 13, 2:52 PM

 

Factors to consider: 1) how are students using technology @home?, 2) Is SAMR built-in? and 3) connect with other educators/tech profesisonals.

7 Ways Teaching Has Changed

7 Ways Teaching Has Changed | teaching and technology | Scoop.it

"Teachers are the arbitrators of knowledge and culture.

Knowledge and culture are each dynamic, endlessly crashing and churning.

This makes teaching significantly important and difficult work, and can leave teaching—as a craft—wide-eyed and nonplussed in response.

Worse, those outside the bubble of education can understandably struggle to understand the problem.

What are the teaching in those schools anyway? How is it any different from when I was in school?"

Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 28, 2014 10:13 PM

How has teaching changed? Below are the seven key ideas. .

1. A culture of emerging literacies

2. A society that is mobile

3. A world where equity is a central theme

4. A society of constant connectivity

5. A world where the technology learns, too

6. A context that demands new credibility in an era of information

7. A culture that can seem, well, distracted

Many teachers may be overwhelmed with these changes and may require professional development to help them develop new skills that technology brings. But change has happened before and will continue to happen. The question is how are we adapting to the changes and how can we assist our students in becoming independent  learners in this new age of learning?

How Technology Enhances Creativity

The truth is that by expanding possibilities and automating part of the creative process, we can all be more creative and productive. In a virtual world of infinite abundance, only creativity could ever be in short supply.

In this very nice article, Forbes journalist Greg Satell summarizes many of the key points relevant to creativity in today's era of booming technology, with the spotlight on business activities. Technology enhances creativity, he declares. We knew that…diidn't we? Let's pause for a few side thoughts. Do the tools (technologies) of creative arts evolve through the ages? Aha! Of course they do. Just think of what changed that famous day in Newport when Dylan went electric. And you can scarcely see a new movie these days that isn't touched by high tech visuals or sound. Also, like it or not, nobody can deny the vast new genre of digital arts. Just wander around in Adobe's Creative Cloud for a while. Like that iPod in your pocket (I do) or painting on your iPad (David Hockney does)? It's good to remind ourselves of examples like thes. But now back to our writer, Greg Satell (@Digitaltonto). He describes his journalistic focus as the intersection of media, marketing and technology. In this article, Satell is keen on how businesses both need creativity and can use technology to multiply it. He adds his voice to the growing number of business writers, analysts and doers who are seeing this from the other side. Put Greg Satell and at least some of his readers on the list of those convinced of the tight coupling between modern technology and timeless creativity. Three cheers!

Resource Roundup: The Pencil Metaphor - The Point, Labor, And Fun

Resource Roundup: The Pencil Metaphor - The Point, Labor, And Fun | teaching and technology | Scoop.it

"For most educators, back-to-school decorations still include the proverbial apple, school bus, writing strips, and black and white composition notebooks...

Looking back, we wanted to round up some of our favorite resources that highlight the pencil as a metaphor for leadership, work, and fun."

Perhaps you remember a few years back when the pencil became a viral hit on Twitter. Think back to the year 2011 and recall how tablets were becoming "the next best thing" in education. How was this technology going to be integrated into the school day?

This post provides a number of resources that moves the pencil beyond that viral chat. You will find an image of the pencil with each component representing various groups of people often found in schools.

The video, iPencil, takes a look at what actually goes into making a pencil, and will teach students about how one product impacts much of the world. And last, but not least,, is the Ode to #PencilChat, a short video that looks at technology integration in the classroom.

Why look at the pencil? Here are the last two lines of this post. "Whether metaphor, symbol, or tool, the pencil is flexible, durable and timeless. We wish everyone a great school year."

Melissa Marshall's curator insight, September 9, 2014 9:23 PM

The Pencil as a metaphor for educators and technology. 

I have yet to have a student ask, 'I won't do this because no-one's given me any PD.'

8 Types of Technology That Will Be Essential in the 2015 Workplace

8 Types of Technology That Will Be Essential in the 2015 Workplace | teaching and technology | Scoop.it

"If technology continues to evolve at the current rate, the 2015 workplace could look quite different from today's office spaces -- and may even involve less traditional office space with the rise of telecommuting. From a company's hiring process to sharing knowledge with employees, technology has the ability to change the way we all work.

 

What technology will be essential in the 2015 workplace, but doesn't exist yet?" from: http://www.huffingtonpost.com

 

NOTE: This short post has 8 thought worthy services and technology that would prove mighty helpful in this digital world that is more complex every day. I like the info for "Learning Academies to Keep Up With New Knowledge" (aka Lifelong Learning).

Have you seen an RSA Animate video? Are you interested in learning how to make one or better yet, have your students make one? This post provides an in-depth look at how to go about have your students create an animated video that provides them with the opportunity to  practice 21st century skills (quoted from post below):

* collaborate with one another

* synthesize ideas

* create content

* communicate ideas clearly

* use technology

This activity is designed to have your students create content, providing you with materials to use in future classes as well as helping your current students understand the materiial.

The author, Jordan Collier, provides a detailed five-day plan. Day 1 would have you dividing students into groups of three, assign them a section of a chapter in a textbook, and determine the key facts that need to be taught. To read about how to assist them with this and the tasks for Day 2 - 5 click through to the post.

Great resource suggestions for integrating ICT to facilitiate students with impairments and learning difficulties. Allows them to learn and use ICT effectively and appropriately to access, create and communicate information and ideas, solve problems and work collaboratively, and in their lives beyond school in the 21st century.
