There are resources in abundance for this month of learning, such as the CEM Starter Kit and the Connected Educator Month Calendar. These sites are packed with wonderful information, truly enough to get the head of a new teacher spinning!

Daphne Koller: What we're learning from online education | Video on TED.com

TED Talks Daphne Koller is enticing top universities to put their most intriguing courses online for free -- not just as a service, but as a way to research how people learn.

 

This TED talk does a good job of explaining some of the latest trends and innovations in education, specially around the big name universities offering free online courses. I like the way she tackles the issues with marking humanities in a scalable manner ... note that the beginning is a little slow, after about 5 minutes you can see where her passions are.

Opinion: Technology is a tool, not silver bullet, to bridge Latino education gap

Opinion: Technology is a tool, not silver bullet, to bridge Latino education gap | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it

"When it comes to education, in spite of some refreshing news lately, Latino youth present a well documented and very troubling picture. On average, Hispanic students tend to perform far below their peers, have the highest dropout rates, and have the lowest college completion rates. This disheartening fact has enormous consequences for our community and the country, in a world that demands more and more education, particularly in technology and science-related fields."

The 10 Biggest Breakthroughs in the Science of Learning

The 10 Biggest Breakthroughs in the Science of Learning | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it

Scientists have been making some major breakthroughs that have gone a long way in explaining both how the brain functions and how we use it to organize, recall, and acquire new information.


 I still don't agree with the idea that there are no "learning styles", but all the rest of this makes a whole lot of sense! I've seen it in myself as a student, as well as seeing it in my Aspie son as well. As mobile become more prolific, I hope that more educators take all this into consideration!

This is a REALLY good video to watch. We'll ignore the fact that at the end, it said that we need "to take e-learning serious" instead of "take e-learning seriousLY". Their editor/tech writer flubbed that one! We'll forgive them for that...the message is still clear. E-learning and m-learning is growing! (Let more of us in to help, like me!)

The History 2.0 Classroom: Back to School App-pack

The History 2.0 Classroom: Back to School App-pack | M-learning, E-Learning, and Technical Communications | Scoop.it

"The summer is quickly winding down & a number of teachers will be returning to their classroom with new mobile devices (iPads). Throughout the summer I have been conducting workshops on iPad integration with EdTechTeacher and I thought it might be helpful to pull together a back to school list of apps structured around specific classroom goals. While many schools may already have an Apple VPP program already in place, I know a number of teachers will also be purchasing the apps themselves. Therefore, I will do my best to include both a pay & free app for each objective."


I really like the tool choices on here. I have most of them already!
