Beth Dichter's curator insight, March 1, 2015 8:33 AM

Where will technology make the biggest impact on education? This post shares nine areas, based on research, where the use of technology is making an impact.

What are the ten areas? Below is a list of the top five. Find additional information on each by clicking through to the post, as well as links to other resources.

1. Critical Thinking - In this area four kinds of thinking are discussed: Analogical, Expressive Experiential, and Problem Solving.

2. Mobile Learning

3. Access to Education

4. Continuous Feedback

5. Unlimited and Immediate Learning

Please note that the title on the post days there are ten areas, but number four is missing in the document (or there are only nine areas). I renumbered the areas above so that they are consecutive.

Norton Gusky's curator insight, March 2, 2015 7:27 AM

Ten examples of how technology makes learning more impactful. Examples include : critical thinking, mobile learning, learning to learn, continuous feedback, and global awareness.

Matthew M.'s curator insight, March 4, 2015 12:32 AM

This post relates to the readings because it talks about the way critical thinking is important to acquiring knowledge and how technology affects our learning. One of the significant aims of education is to produce learners who are well informed, that is to say, learners should understand ideas that are important, useful, beautiful and powerful. Another is to create learners who have the appetite the appetite to think analytically and critically, to use what they know to enhance their own lives and also to contribute to their society, culture and civilization.

How do we learn? New research continues to inform us and we should help our learners discover that making some shifts in their practices may lead them to being more successful learners. This post provides "fifteen steps towards a better brain."

Four of the steps are below.

* Laughter boosts brain function.

* You can improve your memory with one simple step.

* Bilingual brains process information better.

* Higher vocab increases cognition

Some of the steps in this post may be new to you. Each is explained in more detail in the post, and every step includes at least one (or more) links to additional information.

As you read through think about what you can do in your classroom to help your learners and yourself "build a better brain."

Qualitative Formative Assessment Toolkit - Guest Post from Reshan Richards - EdTechTeacher

Qualitative Formative Assessment Toolkit - Guest Post from Reshan Richards - EdTechTeacher | Teaching Tools | Scoop.it

Dr. Reshan Richards: "Each of these approaches allows teachers and learner to capture and create moments of learning, excerpts of understanding, and reflections of experience. Let’s pretend to be one of my 5th-grade math students from last year participating in an activity about tessellating patterns. The activity was to figure out what individual shapes, when arranged in a flat pattern with touching sides, formed a closed tesselating patter (a regular tessellation). This activity involved using physical manipulative objects (pattern blocks), a piece of paper to document findings (journal workbook page), and NCTM Illumination’s Tessellation Creator website as resources for engaging in the experience of exploring regular tessellation. Here’s how the QFAT could be applied to this activity with an iPad."

HJJP's curator insight, April 29, 2015 12:22 AM

We really should ask whether the current education system addresses the needs of the future, even the present. Is this education model proven, and thus ideal? or Should we revisit what we do? how we do it? What we teach? Who we teach it to? and even When we teach it?

 

I am a believer in innovation, and I feel education and training have not kept up with the times. A deep revolution is necessary, but who is ready to do it??

Books often provide inspiration. This book list provides 50 books listed in five categories:

* Inspiration

* Leadership

* Educational Psychology

* Learning Culture

* Practice

A short description of each book is provided as well as a link to Amazon (at least for the books I checked). And think of this as a list of 50 great books. The post states "Number one is just as great a resource as number fifty."
