Rethinking Education: A New Michael Wesch Video

Rethinking Education: A New Michael Wesch Video | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

Since 2007, Michael Wesch, a Kansas State University anthropologist, has released a series of viral videos interrogating the ways in which new web technologies shape human communication and interactions with information. First came The Machine is Us/ing Us, then Information R/evolution and An Anthropological Introduction to YouTube.

Thought-provoking blog entry from Tony Gurr...

Technology is not going to “save” education – the quality of thinking from those involved in educational decision-making is going to do that. And, the starting point is challenging the underlying assumptions and myths that all too often dominate our decision-making.

Teaching Students to use Technology Responsibly

Teaching Students to use Technology Responsibly | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

For years our children have been conditioned that if you really want to be popular with video (most views) then you need to show something embarrassing or rude. YouTube is full of these types of videos and there are even TV shows dedicated to this genre. I believe that part of teaching students how to use technology is to teach them how to use it responsibly.

Ten Uses for Video in Education (Flip & iPad) | Wallace ICT | teaching with technology | Scoop.it
There is nothing more motivating (and exciting) as digital creativity in the classroom. I personally think you would be hard pushed to find a teacher who doesn’t love offering their pupils digital creativity opportunities yet we all face the age old problem of having little TIME to learn new technologies and even less time to freely experiment in class.

On Digital Badges, Participatory Learning, Flipped Classrooms | Barry Joseph via DMLcentral | teaching with technology | Scoop.it

If you read this blog, you have undoubtedly heard about the new interest in digital badging systems...But to prepare for the level of attention sure to ratchet up come March, when HASTAC announces the winners of the $2M “badges for lifelong learning” grants, we thought it worth taking a look back at the talk that launched a thousand badges: Eva L. Baker’s "The End(s) of Testing." Back in 2007, Baker gave the Presidential Address for the American Educational Research Association (AERA). After exploring a wide range of problems with the current use of assessments within schools, she focused on her key recommendation: the development of merit badge-like “Qualifications.” Reading her words now in the publication that grew from her talk, or watching the online recording of the original event (she begins speaking at 44:00), one is confronted by the remarkable vision and promise that has informed this grand experiment.
